SPYRO GYRA

As Spyro Gyra looks forward to 2016 and beyond, they show no sign of slowing down. Over the last 40+ years, they have performed over five thousand shows, released thirty-one albums (not counting “Best Of…” compilations) selling over ten million albums while also achieving one platinum and two gold albums. Although few acts have accomplished this type of record, they have done it by constantly challenging themselves as is evidenced by their last studio release “The Rhinebeck Sessions” which was written and recorded over three days in the studio.

FREDDIE JACKSON

With 11 number 1 hits, 2 Grammy nominations, and an American Music Award, Freddie Jackson is an R&B icon.

Michael Waldman

Date: 
Sunday, March 13, 2016 - 10:30pm
Program: 

In The Fight to Vote, best selling author Michael Waldman takes a succinct and comprehensive look at a crucial American struggle: the drive to define and defend government based on “the consent of the governed.” From the beginning, and at every step along the way, as Americans sought to right to vote, others have fought to stop them. This is the first book to trace the full story from the founders’ debates to today’s challenges: a wave of restrictive voting laws, partisan gerrymanders, the flood of campaign money unleashed by Citizens United.
