MID­DLE­TOWN — Clara’s Jour­ney: Why Our Pi­ano Goes to the Woods, will be held June 21, 7 p.m in the Hub­bard Room, Rus­sell Li­brary, 123 Broad Street, Mid­dle­town.

Ev­ery sum­mer, the pi­ano at Rus­sell Li­brary, named af­ter Clara Schu­mann, has a sum­mer ad­ven­ture in the woods. Hear the mu­sic and story with Mara Ben­nett, Noyes dancer, and Carolyn Hal­sted, a Mid­dle­town com­poser and pi­anist who will play a se­lec­tion of mu­si­cal pieces used for Noyes Rhythm, in­clud­ing one of her own com­po­si­tions.

Cre­ated by Florence Flem­ing Noyes in the early 1900s, Noyes Rhythm is a move­ment sys­tem that brings ease and strength to the body. Many peo­ple of all ages, both dancers and non-dancers, have come to Noyes School of Rhythm to re­lieve stiff­ness, tired­ness, and loss of in­spi­ra­tion. Drop-in; no reg­is­tra­tion.
