New World Jazz Composers Octet

The music is a kaleidoscope: shifting effortlessly from the intimacy of a piano trio to the shouting horns of a big band. The music conjures a range of feelings, from Jobim's melodic and harmonic warmth, to the spontaneity and excitement of Charles Mingus' groups, to the harmonic pastels of Herbie Hancock's explorations of the late 60's.

Framingham High School Poetry Slam Finals

Framingham High School will hold the final round of its eighth annual poetry slam.

A "slam:" is a competition between teams of poets who perform their own original work, bringing poetry off the page and onto the stage in a gloves-off, no-holds-barred verbal boxing match with judges chosen randomly from the audience.

Amazing U Presents: Don White's Comedy Workshop

DON WHITE SAYS:
It is easy to think that certain great comedians are just simply born with an extraordinary God-given talent for engaging an audience and that there is nothing that a mere mortal man or woman can do to acquire these skills. This is, in my humble opinion, simply not true.
