This Senior Happening will be hosted online! Register using the form below and make sure to include your email address. On Friday, July 16th at 1pm you will recieve a link to the private prerecorded YouTube video.
Heart Songs is a collection of songs about love in all its variety. The presentation is a pairing of musical performance and video taken by the singers and edited by director Laura Ekstrand.
Songs range from Great American Songbook classics like “The Way You Look Tonight” and “Keepin’ Out of Mischief” to selections from the modern musical theatre like “Still Hurting” from The Last Five Years and “Love is an Open Door” from Frozen. Pop music from a range of eras is also in the mix, from the Beatles’ “I Will” to “Don’t Change” by Musiq Soulchild. The singers have enlisted their friends and family to help in creating video footage that is shaped into individual vignettes for each song.
Participating in the Heart Songs cabaret are Clark Carmichael (Montclair), Harry Patrick Christian (Montclair), Laura Ekstrand (Livingston), Sandy Fenelus (Elizabeth), Julian Blake Gordon (Jersey City), Shabazz Green (Summit), Gail Lou (Englewood), and Scott McGowan (Maplewood). The show is directed and edited by artistic director Laura Ekstrand, assistant directed by Daria M. Sullivan (Montclair) and sound designed by Jeff Knapp (Randolph).
Registration is required for Senior Happening.
Senior Happening is made possible in part by funds from the Essex County Division of Cultural Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and through the support from the Friends of the Livingston Library.
