Calling all kids! And that means all grown up kids, too, who love watching Saturday morning cartoons while devouring a big bowl of cereal. Denver Public Library is hosting this tribute to the days of ‘yore’ youth – we’ll be screening great cartoons from the 60’s right up through to the new millennium. Lots of fun retro stuff. And we’ll serve it up with a cereal bar of fun, nostalgic cereals – and healthy choices, too! But it gets even better for the real kiddos in the audience. Have homework that you need help with? Working on a project for school that is lacking good resource materials?
Brian Mullins and Mike Fitzmaurice play the Chinese erhu, a two-stringed bowed instrument, along with a variety of other Chinese instruments. This lively group has performed at Denver Public Library before and is back by popular demand. Enjoy traditional Chinese tunes mixed with contemporary and American music played on these classical instruments. https://www.denverlibrary.org/fresh#erhoopla
An exuberant musical experience, rooted firmly in traditional Jewish modes and melodies and driven by contemporary rhythms and danceable grooves, Hal Aqua and The Lost Tribe play nouveau klezmer music. The versatile musicians who make up The Lost Tribe have a deep respect for their source material, from the evocative tunes of Eastern European Jews and Gypsies to the sinuous rhythms of the Middle East and Mediterranean. https://www.denverlibrary.org/fresh#hal
