Megan Burtt
with Thea Hopkins w/ Kenny Selcer, Wepro, Eddie Pinero & Chris Moreno, Zac John
Hey party people. I'm Megan. My band calls me Nutmeg. My friends call me Megs. My high school boyfriend called me Meggers. I hated that. We didn't last. I grew up in Denver, and I really love the snow. I also love to play dress-up, and I really love my carhartt overalls. I have an issue with peanut butter...or an unhealthy relationship. We are dealing with it. I love music more than anything else I've found, which is likely why I happily spend all my time doing something musical. I have a birthmark on my left knee. If it's true, that freckles and birthmarks and stuff are angel kisses, then angels love the shit outta my left knee. When I retire, I'm going to open a flower/cafe shop. I can't wait to visit Africa. I can't wait to learn how to surf. I can't wait own a house that has a porch and a fireplace. I can't wait to come play my music for you!Thanks for jumping in my ride, if even for a short time while procrastinating after your lunch break. Thanks for being curious. Thanks for supporting art. Thanks for supporting music. Thanks for supporting live music. Thanks for inspiring me. Thanks for being a rad human. Thanks for never calling me Meggers.

World Music/CRASHarts The Bad Plus Joshua Redman

As though it was always destined to be, powerhouse trio the Bad Plus finds its fated fourth member in longtime friend and collaborator, saxophonist Joshua Redman. When Redman joined the trio as a special guest a few years back, a brilliant collaboration was born. Redman’s melodic prowess blends seamlessly with the avant-garde populism of Reid Anderson, Ethan Iverson, and David King, pushing the boundaries of jazz beyond all imagination. Metroland describes the supergroup best: “It’s as though Redman is the long-lost fourth member of the group, just waiting to be snapped snugly into place. Imagine if the Beatles had spent the first decade of their career as a trio before adding Paul. It’s like that.”

PlaySpace: Messy Sensory Activity Water Color
Tuesday, October 20, 2015 - 10:00am to 4:00pm





Water Color

See, and feel the paint. Make shapes with the watery liquid. Practice the fine motor skill of using a paint brush. Try using a sponge and use your whole arm to splash paint onto the paper. Describe the movements, and color of the watercolor markings. 

In the Messy Sensory Area in PlaySpace, toddlers do the important work of exploring the world and themselves through hands-on activities. The area is perfect for toddlers to explore all kinds of sensory materials from paint to shaving cream, playdough and water. Activities are carefully designed to support toddlers’ curiosity and the development of fundamental skills. We use washable, non-toxic materials so everyone can enjoy the fun of making a mess!

Tips for doing Messy activities at Boston Children's Museum:

  • Follow your child’s lead and feel free to visit the area multiple times. It could be your child’s first time exploring paint or cornstarch. and it takes time to develop confidence and be comfortable.
  • We have smocks available for both children and grownups. Pack an extra shirt and pants for full-body exploration.
  • Talk to our experienced staff. We are available for tips and ideas to try at home.

The area may be closed briefly for cleaning in the middle of the day.

Visiting Artist Series: Voxare String Quartet

“The Voxare String Quartet is probably the best American chamber group performing today.”

— Ned Rorem, Pulitzer Prize Winning Composer

“The gifted Voxare String Quartet” (The New York Times) formed in 2008 and has since received critical praise for its inventive programming, technical prowess, attention to detail, and passionate performances.  As one of the most acclaimed and innovative young string quartets in the United States, The New York Times declared that Voxare plays “with such penetrating tone and lucid textures,” and has on numerous occasions chosen Voxare as its Classical Pick of the Week. Voxare’s performances have included appearances at Avery Fisher Hall with the New York Philharmonic, the Guggenheim Museum, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. Voxare has had performing residences at Dartmouth College and Columbia University, among others; additionally, the quartet has been the prestigious quartet-in-residence at New York’s Bargemusic. Voxare has been featured live on Soundcheck WNYC and its concerts broadcast on WQXR. At its residency series, DIG IT! New Music, at Teachers College, Columbia University, Voxare performs works by living composers, bringing together a community of America’s leading composers, both emerging and established. Voxare’s unique performing activities earned the quartet Chamber Music America’s ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming. Voxare’s debut albums will be released in 2015.                                  

In addition to performing standard repertoire, Voxare takes responsibility in presenting and encouraging interest in contemporary music, and often works with leading composers such as Pulitzer Prize winning composers Ned Rorem and David Del Tredici. Voxare was the Quartet-in-Residence at the International Computer Music Conference and continues working with composers and researchers in studying electro-acoustic music. Voxare presented a three day Mostly Riley Festival to celebrate the 75th birthday of composer Terry Riley at Bargemusic. About the Riley Festival, the New York Times wrote, “The personable and passionate Voxare players …offered a spirited, high-energy performance, vividly conveying the work’s beautiful colors. The performance was excellent, with distinctive contributions from each player.”

With a repertoire spanning five centuries, Voxare is not afraid to break down the boundaries of classical music; they have made and performed their own transcriptions of popular and rock music and often perform in alternative concert venues, presenting innovative concerts focused on unique and accessible presentations of contemporary chamber music while assimilating classical standards and popular music. Voxare can be found on the soundtracks of several films shown at festivals such as Sundance and Tribeca.

Voxare was accepted to study quartet repertoire with Robert Mann, founder of the Juilliard String Quartet, at the inaugural prestigious Mann Quartet Institute. Voxare has studied quartet literature with members of the Juilliard String Quartet through its exclusive String Quartet Seminar, and has also studied with members of the Kronos Quartet through Carnegie Hall.

Individually, Voxare members have performed as soloist with orchestras such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and orchestrally with the Cleveland Orchestra, Milwaukee Symphony, and St. Petersburg Philharmonic. The four musicians have amassed a number of prizes at international competitions.

Low-Turnout in Municipal Elections: Implications for Democracy, Citizens of Color, and Low Income Individuals
Long term trends indicate that voter turnout in municipal elections in larger cities like Boston is on the decline. In municipal elections, turnout can be as low as single digits. Low-turnout elections tend to be dominated by whiter, more affluent, older voters. What are the implications of low turnout municipal elections for municipal services? For minorities? For democracy? Join us for a provocative and thoughtful discussion of the causes, consequences, and possible fixes for low turnout municipal elections. SPEAKERS: Sarah Anzia, professor at University of California, Berkeley and author of Timing and Turnout: How Off-Cycle Elections Favor Organized Groups Zoltan Hajnal, University of California, San Diego and author of America’s Uneven Democracy: Turnout, Race, and Representation in City Politics Elena Letona, Executive Director, Neighbor to Neighbor Massachusetts MODERATOR: TBA Copresented with the Boston Scholar Strategy Network

Golden Bloom CD Release
Golden Bloom began as the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Shawn Fogel, who played every part on 2009's debut full length Fan the Flames and 2011's March to the Drums EP. During this time, he earned the attention of tastemakers like SPIN, Magnet, and Daytrotter. After years of touring with a band, however, he found that songs had evolved beyond their studio versions, and the musicians he had surrounded himself with added new depth and dimension to the music. On 2013's No Day Like Today EP, live band members Josh Cohen, Jeff Patlingrao, and Justin Hofmann joined Fogel to hone a new batch of catchy, thoughtful songs, recording for the first time as a full band. Golden Bloom's evolution continues to unfold in lush melodies on their new record, Searching for Sunlight. The lyrics deal both gracefully and bluntly with hard truths. The music, however, is uplifting and memorable, built around layered arrangements and unpredictable chord progressions. If their previous records were stars, Searching for Sunlight is a supernova: the melodies are memorable and hold up beautifully on repeat, the vocals are also sweeter and more refined; the lyrics speak to a deeper sense of self and understanding; and the talented group of musicians paint colorful tapestries with small, unexpected flourishes and tasteful moments of revelation. Opening will be NYC based singer/songwriter Matt Sucich. ATWOOD'S IS A MIX OF SEATING AND STANDING ROOM. PURCHASING A TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE SEATING. THIS IS A 21+ SHOW

When: Nov 5, 2015 10 PM to Nov 6, 2015 2 AMin Cambridge, Massachusetts
