And Later That Same Day…
Have you ever wondered what your grandparents did when they were younger?
Do you want to write your own story so your grandchildren won’t wonder the same thing?
Jan Whalen, along with her sister Ruth and brother John, will be speaking about the importance of leaving a legacy based on her latest book, Character Safari: Remember and Write the Stories of Your Life.
She hopes to jog your memory, hear your stories and help you get serious about writing the story of your own life.

The Harmony Public Library and the Harmony Arts Board in collaboration with Riverside Concerts, Arts Midwest, the Mayo Clinic and the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council present Traditional Eastern European Jewish music from the KLEZMATICS on Thursday, February 27, 2014 at 7 PM at the JEM Theatre in Harmony, MN. Admission is free. Refreshments to follow the performance.
The Klezmatics are world-renowned and Grammy-winning superstars whose music is steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality, while incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights and anti-fundamentalism with eclectic musical influences including Arab, African, Latin and Balkan rhythms, jazz and punk.
In the course of over twenty years they have released nine albums of wild, spiritual, provocative, reflective, and ecstatically danceable music, forever redefining and transcending traditional labels.
The Klezmatics have collaborated with numerous musical luminaries including folk hero Arlo Guthrie, classical legend Itzhak Perlman, Israeli pop icons Chava Albertstein and Ehud Banay, beat poet Allen Ginsberg, The Master Musicians of Jajouka, Ben Folds Five, and Kosher Gospel singer Joshua Nelson.
Their work has extended to numerous theater, film, dance and television projects, including Pulitzer Prize Winning playwright Tony Kushner’s “A Dybbuk” and “It’s An Undoing World”, and Pilobolus Dance Theatre’s “Davenen”.
The Klezmatics have reached millions through performances and features on CBS’s Late Night with David Letterman, PBS’ Great Performances, BBC’s Rhythms of the World, BBC’s John Peel Show, various NPR programs (A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, New Sounds Live and Soundcheck), CBS’s Nightwatch, FOX’s After Breakfast, MTV News, and Sex and the City. Additionally, their song “NY Psycho Freyelkhs” is a theme song for Air America Radio’s The Al Franken Show.
They have performed in over twenty countries at some of the most storied venues and renowned festivals worldwide, including Central Park Summerstage, Carnegie Hall, Pirineos Sur (Spain), Colours of Ostrava (Czech Republic), Pohoda Festival (Slovakia), Jazzsomer Graz (Austria), and the Heimatklänge Festival (Germany).
The Klezmatics have garnered numerous awards and accolades throughout their career, including a 2006 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Music Album (for Wonder Wheel: Lyrics by Woody Guthrie), a New York Jewish Music Award (Best Klezmer Band, 2006), a GLAMA (Gay and Lesbian American Music Award) and the German Critics Award (twice), and have topped the Billboard world music charts on numerous occasions.
This event is a free concert preview of a full length performance that will take place in Rochester, MN at the Mayo Civic Center Presentation Hall on Saturday, March 1 at 7:30 PM
