Long Island Pulse Singer-Songwriter Series— November 2010

LI Pulse Singer-Songwriter Series
@ The Cinema Arts Centre

November 2010

In the words of some famous Roman philosopher (and at least one semi-famous pop song), every new beginning does indeed come from some other beginning’s end. When we decided to move the LI Pulse Singer-Songwriter Series from very-cool-but-alas-too-far-west Long Island City to conveniently situated Huntington, we never expected such appreciation. And such synergy. What a great turnout for our inaugural installation. What beautiful and charmingly complex little compositions from Jaymay! Oh if I were a pair of headphones playing her songs on repeat! And David Amram’s musical homilies on history, humility, and love – all on the heels of his 80th birthday. We should all be blessed to have his talent and energy at any age. If this is any indication for what is to come over the next several months, we’re in for some serious music-making on the last Wednesday of every month from 8p.m. to 10p.m. Thanks, Cinema Arts Centre. See you in a few.
