Jews in China?!! For at least 13 centuries—and possibility more than two millennia—Jewish traders, adventurers, and refugees made their way into China via the Silk Road, settling in Kaifeng, Harbin, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Hong Kong among other cities. By the Northern Sung Dynasty (960-1127 CE), a Jewish community thrived in the central Chinese city of Kaifeng—then China's capitol—existing peacefully with its neighbors for at least 700 years. In the late 19th century, Sephardi Jews began to develop Shanghai. There some 10,000 Jewish refugees from Eastern European massacres and the Russian Revolution, in addition to some 20,000 Russian Jews who built thriving communities in Harbin and other cities in China's northeast. In the 1930s, Shanghai became the world's only port welcoming Jews fleeing Nazi aggression with no passports or documentation—their citizenship having been revoked by the Nazis. At least 30,000 Jews found shelter in Shanghai and China's other port and inland cities during the Holocaust. Today, China is home to modern Jewish communities and remains one of the world's only nations with no history of persecution of Jews. Joy's experience leading six Jewish heritage tours of China, her extensive photographs, insightful audio/visual materials, and enlightening discussion highlight today's lecture, which Joy has shared for educational and Jewish communities around the country. There is no charge for this program.

Over the 17 years that followed, they influenced the course of the modern American musical theatre as none before them. Their collaboration captured Americana to the Far East—heightened by inspiring stories with unforgettable characters and choreography. This new style of theatre came to be known as the Integrated Musical, and Rodgers and Hammerstein are credited with its first fullest development. Experience the lives and timeless music of arguably the 20th century's greatest musical collaborative team—Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II.

87-year-old composer/lyricist Jerry Herman, creator of iconic musicals Milk & Honey, Hello Dolly, Mame, Mack & Mabel, Dear World, La Cage Aux Folles, has known spectacular success and phenomenal failure. In 1961, the young writer burst on Broadway with Milk and Honey, plus Tony and Grammy nominations. Hello, Dolly! and Mame enjoyed monumental success, while Dear World, Mack and Mabel, and The Grand Tour floundered. La Cage Aux Folles renewed Herman's belief in himself and the American musical theatre. Not only was it a Broadway blockbuster, it was a personal heroic statement from Herman and his cocreator. Discover why these days remain The Best of Times for Jerry Herman and his musicals.

This is a man who, when given a simple prop like a stick, could present a freestyle improvisation in which the stick became a fishing rod, spear, giant beetle antenna, hatchet, and Bing Crosby's golf club. Every transformation—vocally, visually, and textually—was brilliant, all from the spontaneous top of Jonathan Winters' zany mind. More comedians refer to him as comedy's greatest genius than any other comedian in history. Robin Williams described Winters as "a rebel without a pause," and his comedy recordings as "auditory bliss." From Maude Frickert to Chester Honeyhugger, his characters became iconic figures in their own right. Jonathan's wife Eileen claimed that Jonathan went through his terrible twos—but they lasted 20 years! So prepare for a winter lift through a re-experience of the life and work of Jonathan Winters!

Seventy years ago in 1958, the iconic Peter Gunn Theme brought the talents of Henry Mancini to the attention of the world. Nominated for a first Emmy and two Grammys, Mancini's series was among the most memorable of the 1958-59 season. It was only the beginning of a mind-boggling career. An unprecedented 72 Grammy and 18 Oscar nominations attest to the timelessness of his music. Whether writing, arranging, conducting, or concertizing jazz-infused themes like Mr. Lucky and The Pink Panther, to lush symphonic masterpieces like Love Story, Charade, and Days of Wine and Roses, Mancini's themes are unforgettable. His scores transformed television and film, providing a timeless third-dimensional life to the events, characters, and emotions of his productions.

At 50, Australian actress/director Cate Blanchett remains among the world's most acclaimed actresses. In Australia, where she was born and where her career first came to prominence, she had already developed a distinctive image and displayed a passion for performing by her teens. International attention followed with her role as Elizabeth I—for which she received major awards in England and America. Moving on to a number of innovative roles—including her performance as Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator, which made her the only actor in history to win an Oscar for portraying another Oscar-winning actor, she is recognized for the intense range of her performances and her multiple award nominations and wins worldwide. The psychological thriller Notes on a Scandal, her breathtaking incarnations of Queen Elizabeth I in two feature films, and Bob Dylan in I'm Not There, her stunning lead performance in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, which brought her more than 40 industry and critics awards—are but a few examples. On stage and screen, she continues to stretch to her highest ability as an actor and director.

The guy in the last row of the secon d balcony is going to hear every syllable." Discover the life and legendary performances of Ethel Merman in this 90-minute biography class.

For the month of May, let's celebrate one of the great films of America's Singing Sweethearts—Maytime—along with the other seven movies they created together between 1935 and 1942—Naughty Marietta, Rose-Marie, Girl of the Golden West, New Moon, I Married and Angel, Sweethearts, and Bitter Sweet. MacDonald and Eddy became the most popular singing team in movie history. The blend of their voices and the sweetness of their moments together on screen inspired many to follow musical careers and continue to enchant viewers worldwide. When they met in 1933, rumors arose immediately that they either adored or despised one another—but it is now known they were secretly engaged. MGM mogul Louis B. Mayer's interference with their affair led each to marry another unhappily. Through the loss, they remained deeply in love and deeply supportive of one another's talents. Their music and films remain an inspiration to people around the world.

Seventy years ago in 1958, the iconic Peter Gunn Theme brought the talents of Henry Mancini to the attention of the world. Nominated for a first Emmy and two Grammys, Mancini's series was among the most memorable of the 1958-59 season. It was only the beginning of a mind-boggling career. An unprecedented 72 Grammy and 18 Oscar nominations attest to the timelessness of his music. Whether writing, arranging, conducting, or concertizing jazz-infused themes like Mr. Lucky and The Pink Panther, to lush symphonic masterpieces like Love Story, Charade, and Days of Wine and Roses, Mancini's themes are unforgettable. His scores transformed television and film, providing a timeless third-dimensional life to the events, characters, and emotions of his productions.

America's beloved humorist Mark Twain was, ironically, not often a man of good humor. His wit as writer and public speaker drew a worldwide audience, and he became a friend to presidents, artists, celebrities, industrialists, and European royalty even as he hurled wicked comments against anyone whose views and actions he found offensive. Join educator Joy Katzen-Guthrie for a look at how Twain's literrary voice was shaped in the West, where he observed the challenges of life in mining towns, created breakthrough fiction, and experienced emotional agony that inspired a future life's work.

Woody Guthrie's contribution as a musical commentator on American life and society was revolutionary. His causes and his music stirred the world to action and influenced generations of writers, composers, and activists in a way that no one before him had done. In the words of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: "Without Woody Guthrie, there would be no Dylan, Springsteen, or Baez." Join educator Joy Katzen-Guthrie for a discussion about the experiences and views that made Woody Guthrie's life and music unique. NOTE: Space is limited; advance registration required.

Summer 1969: Vietnam raged. Civil Rights, Women's Lib, and the Peace Movement divided America. But in August, nearly half a million young people—many of them hippies—gathered on the grounds of Max Yasgur's dairy farm in Bethel, New York, for three days of music, marijuana, and camaraderie. It woudl become the most beloved rock festival of all time. Despite a lack of food and a preponderance of rain, mud, and hot, crowded conditions, the festival is remembered lovingly for its groundbreaking performrs and music, for the good nature of the festival goers, and for the generosity of the local residents. The term that came to represent the youth of the 60s—The Woodstock Generation—still lives. Experience highlights of the festival's creation, the iconoic soundtrack, and the "Three Days of Peace & Music" that came to life 50 years ago.

One of nine children born to Syrian-Lebanese Catholic parents, Danny Thomas' birth name was Muzyad Yakhoob, changed later by his parents to Amos Jacobs. Seventy-nine years ago this week in August 1940, Thomas changed his name to Danny (after his younger brother) and Thomas (after his eldest brother), when he appeared at the 5100 Club in Chicago. Desperate and struggling to find work in those years, he made a vow that if he became successful, he would dedicate a shrine to St. Jude, the patron saint of hopeless causes. Soon after, his star rose and he began taking steps to bring his vow to fruition. In 1962, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis became the first facility to treat children of every color and financial status from all 50 states and around the world, developing miraculous treatments, seeking cures for terminal children's illness, and saving countless lives. Thomas lives on in a legacy of lasting music, hope, and love.

One century ago in 1919, Sigmund Romberg (born Siegmund Rosenberg) became a naturalized American citizen. Notable because this gifted Hungarian-born composer integrated the fundament principles of 19th century Viennese operetta with 20th century American music to create hugely successful scores like Maytime, The Student Prince, The Desert Song, The New Moon, and Up In Central Park. Romberg's revues, musical comedies, operettas, films, and orchestral works were a valuable contribution to Broadway and Hollywood—simultaneously inspiring a revival of traditional musical melody while contributing to the distinctive American popular songbook. Though he was educated in Vienna as an engineer, Romberg—lucky for us—studied composition on the side and chose to become a conductor and composer—and to make America his home. Bridging musical worlds, he left a rich legacy of soaring melodies and romantic productions that are as beloved today as the era in which they were composed.

This is a man who, when given a simple prop like a stick, could present a freestyle improvisation in which the stick became a fishing rod, spear, giant beetle antenna, hatchet, and Bing Crosby's golf club. Every transformation—vocally, visually, and textually—was brilliant, all from the spontaneous top of Jonathan Winters' zany mind. More comedians refer to him as comedy's greatest genius than any other comedian in history. Robin Williams described Winters as "a rebel without a pause," and his comedy recordings as "auditory bliss." From Maude Frickert to Chester Honeyhugger, his characters became iconic figures in their own right. Jonathan's wife Eileen claimed that Jonathan went through his terrible twos—but they lasted 20 years! So prepare for a lift through a re-experience of the life and work of Jonathan Winters!

Dance is the art form involving the rhythmic movement of the body as a means of creative expression; choreography is the art of designing dance. But definitions like these cannot capture the virtuosity, emotion, and thrilling effect of the dance—not only upon those who dance it, but those who view it. As the dancer hurls himself into the air into another dimension, he takes the observer along. The experience was not lost on Hollywood filmmakers, who discovered early how to powerfully convey the exuberance of dance. Traditional, modern, jazz, and ballet were brought to us by Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Busby Berkeley, Hermes Pan, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Cyd Charisse, Ruby Keeler, Eleanor Powell, Buddy Ebson, Donald O'Connor, The Nicholas Brothers, Bob Fosse, Gower Champion, Bobby Van, Gregory Hines, Ray Bolger, Ann Miller, and many more. Re-experience some of the finest work of unforgettable choreographers and technicians of dance in film.

A mere one week before the turn of the millennium, beloved pianist and humorist Victor Borge passed away—two weeks shy of turning 91. He had never stopped finding a way to laugh at life and fill the world with mirth. "Laughter is the closest distance between people," said Borge, one of the 20th century's funniest performers, who devoted his career to making light of the pomposity and seriousness of the classic masters and their music. A brilliant concert pianist, he escaped Denmark shortly before the country was occupied by Nazi Germany. Arriving in the U.S. with only a few dollars, he quickly found his way—through talent, willpower, and joy of living—toward making a worldwide impact in the entertainment world. Experience his enormous gifts through his story and his comedy.

America's Singing Sweethearts of the 1930s and 40s, Macdonald and Eddy filmed eight movies together between 1935 and 1942. In their classics—Naughty Marietta, Rose-Marie, Girl of the Golden West, New Moon, I Married and Angel, Sweethearts, Bitter Sweet and Maytime, they became the most popular singing team in movie history. The blend of their voices and the sweetness of their moments together on screen inspired many to follow musical careers and continue to enchant viewers worldwide. When they met in 1933, rumors arose immediately that they both adored or despised one another—but it is now known they were secretly engaged. MGM mogul Louis B. Mayer's interference with their affair led each to marry another unhappily. Through the pain, they remained deeply in love and deeply supportive of one another's talents. Their music and films remain an inspiration around the world.
