Journey to the Past: Music, Memory and Identity
The six-week after-school workshop series, Journey to the Past: Music, Memory and Identity is an interactive language arts, music and theater appreciation program facilitated by professional teaching artists and guest speakers.
Along with exploring the plot, characters, and music of Anastasia, students will explore concepts of history, family, and personal identity, as well as the role that music plays in memory and connection with community.
Journey to the Past is a grant-funded program sponsored by the American Savings Foundation. 25 spots are available for interested middle and high school students (Grades 6-12). The program will meet in person at the Palace Theater, and social distancing protocols/mask wearing will be observed in accordance with Federal and State guidelines. Participation is free and includes a complimentary ticket to the October 20 evening performance of Anastasia at the Palace Theater.
All workshops will take place from 3:00 – 5:00 pm except as noted. All sessions will be in person this year.
Students can expect to:
- Study the themes, music, and background of Anastasia
- Meet with guest speakers and artists from various fields
- Examine notions of family, memory, and their connection with music
- Work on homework and assignments and enjoy a provided snack each in-person session
- Create a final project, which they will present at the last class
