OPEN-MINDED MIC NITE!


Summer is a busy time at the Renee Foosaner Education Center.  This year's camp theme was Pop Art and the camper's labors will be the subject of a professionally mounted exhibition installed in the Ruth Cote Clemente wing of the education center, 1520 Highland Ave. Campers were asked to submit a piece of their work, and the exhibition will include art media such as printmaking, found objects, painting and drawing.

Back by popular demand, the Space Coast Symphony Jazz Orchestra will turn up the heat once again this summer with a program that will highlight the artistry of some of the greatest arrangers and composers of our time. With their primary instrument being the big band, musicians such as Sammy Nestico, Billy May, and Ernie Wilkins are among those who have made significant contributions to the evolution of the art of the big band. With music from Goodman (as in Benny) to Goodwin (as in Gordon), this concert promises to be hot from start to finish.

Melbourne Municipal Band presents Hal Gibson wielding the baton for this year’s guest conductor concert, which will bring the music of Spain, Russia, France, Italy and England directly to the Melbourne Auditorium.

Time: 6:30 PM

Adolf Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in June, 1941, and his armies raced eastward like a juggernaut until the Red Army and the Russian winter stalled them -- especially at Moscow and Leningrad.

The siege of Leningrad lasted nearly 2-1/2 years. The city was isolated and nothing got in or out except by way of a roadway over frozen Lake Ladoga when there was ice. People survived on a ration of bread that was as much sawdust as flour. They ate pets, the zoo animals, leather goods ,and worse. The death, destruction, and suffering were beyond all description.
