SteveCharneyandHarry

Spencertown Academy Arts Center presents children’s entertainer, magician, composer, and ventriloquist Steve Charney as part of its virtual Family Arts Kaleidoscope series. Beginning on Thursday, October 1 at 10:00am and available online anytime through Sunday, October 18, “It’s All About Reading” highlights the serious and not-so-serious joys of books and reading and includes Charney’s famous puppet pal, Harry.

“We’re delighted that Steve recorded this program specially for the Academy,” says Kelly Kynion, chair of the Family Arts Kaleidoscope Committee. “And to encourage even more reading, 10 participants will be selected at random to receive a copy of Steve’s book, Hokus Jokus: How to do Funny Magic.

Steve Charney’s comedy act of magic, music, and ventriloquism has taken him from Africa to California, and his radio program “Knock On Wood” aired on various stations around the country for more than 25 years, including WAMC. He wrote dozens of songs for Jim Henson’s “Bear in the Big Blue House” for the Disney Channel, and his books on comedy and magic have been published by Crown, Troll, Metacom, Meadowbrook Press, Scholastic, and Sterling (a division of Barnes and Noble).

The program is sponsored by Spencertown Academy, with generous support from Hudson River Bank and Trust Foundation and Stewart’s Shops.

The Family Arts Kaleidoscope virtual series continues on Saturday, October 24 at 10:00am live on Zoom with Greg and Elena Mosley presenting “Style and Rhythms of West African Drumming” (for adults and children age 10 and up).

Family Arts Kaleidoscope is made possible with support from Hudson River Bank and Trust Foundation and Stewart’s Shops.

WGXC’s Homeschool Radio Intensive Workshop for Teens

Columbia and Greene Counties’ local radio station, WGXC, is hosting a free, homeschool intensive to teach kids how to produce a radio show.

Artist, teacher, and Wave Farm Fellow Jess Speer will lead this homeschool intensive over the course of two weeks in the fall of 2020. Working both in a large group and in smaller teams, participants will produce a radio project of collective choosing. Participants will have the opportunity to create poetry, sound art, or radio dramas, conduct research and interviews, produce audio in many formats, experiment with form and sound, and get weird, go deep, and listen deeply. The emphasis will be on process and experience rather than a “perfect” final product.

Interested in joining? Contact info@wavefarm.org. The workshop schedule will be designed to best accommodate the schedule of all interested participants.

WGXC Radio 90.7-FM, is a community radio station based in New York’s Columbia and Greene counties. It’s part of Wave Farm, which is a non-profit arts organization driven by experimentation with broadcast media and the airwaves.
