Keep the holidays going for just a bit longer with the Milton High School Small Ensembles Concert, featuring MHS musicians performing in pared down groups. It’s not just holiday music, however, so tune in for some great jazz tunes from a variety of arrangements, as well as chamber orchestras and choruses. This program is currently airing on the Education channel (Comcast 22/RCN 15) daily at 7 p.m.
Margie Yamamoto was an infant in 1942 when she and her family were forcibly taken by train from their home in Southern California to a Japanese internment camp, along with over 120,000 other Japanese Americans in the wake of the bombing of Pearl Harbor during WWII. In a recent presentation at Fuller Village, she described her family’s experience from a lived perspective, illustrated with many photos and images. This informative lecture is currently airing during the Monday Forum at 5 p.m. on the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13).
Photographer Barry Pell recently stopped by the Milton Public Library to share a visual presentation of his work entitled “Travels at the End of the World,” featuring the landscapes and wildlife of Antarctica which he photographed while living for a year in Chile. Striking images of glaciers, penguins, seals, mountains and much more are shown along with informational narration that includes history, ecology and personal anecdotes in this program that is currently airing during the Monday Forum at 8 p.m. on the Public channel.
