Leonard Bernstein Lectures On Metaphor In Music

In my Art of Listening class, we've been watching bits of Bernstein's lectures about a variety of the pieces we've listened to but I'm excited to watch more of them soon.

North Philadelphia Folks Hard

Saturday was an evening filled with folk musicians all across the North Philadelphia area. At six o' clock an incarnation of The Boxcar Children performed at a stairwell in the Temple University Student Activity Center. Here's the playlist of videos from that show.

After the performance, the band crossed campus to support original member Ziggy Gamble at his Under The Radar solo performance. Performing after Ziggy was singer-songwriter Brittany Ann.

Following Brittany Ann's set was a band from Boston called Pesky J. Nixon.
