Music Classes for Children

Tuesday Dec 19, 2017, 11:45 a.m.

Monthly: meets 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Free music education for young children and parents/caregivers, held in the Henderson Children's Room of the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library. Presented by Moon River Music Together with Flo Labaze, the class will explore how the early childhood program of Music Together® teaches music through play.

Young children are given the opportunity to develop basic competence in music by providing them with a rich musical experience in a relaxed and playful environment.

Catherine Rubin, Director of Moon River Mother and Child, believes that every child is musical and that each child needs a stimulating, supportive music environment to enjoy the wonderful human capacity for music-making.

First Friday Film Series presents: "The Fifth Element" (1997) [PG-13] 2 hr 6 min

Friday Jan 5, 2018, 7:30 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

Directed by Luc Besson and starring erstwhile model Milla Jovovich, The Fifth Element is the story of the simultaneous arrival of universe-ending Death epitomized and a mysterious alien savior figure. Jovovich plays that savior, Leeloo with a childlike naiveté which naturally collides and ignites when in contact with Bruce Willis’ jaded ex-military cab driver Korben Dallas.

Not since Bladerunner has a future world been so spectacularly and finely rendered. Car chases are a lot more exciting in three dimensions, rendering every cab fare an opportunity for spectacular mayhem. And that’s before even leaving Earth. When the action switches to interstellar space things risk getting out of hand.

The production design of this movie is over the top. Costumes and a cameo are provided by Jean-Paul Gaultier. Yes, THAT JPG, the divine overwrought star of cartoonish eighties opulence. The uniforms and costumes alone are worth the price of admission.

Add in the always awesome Gary Oldman, Ian Holm, and a wildly over-the-top performance by Chris Tucker, killer visuals, soundtrack, and wit and you get a delightful treacle of a film.

~Film Series Curator, Chris X. Carroll
