Foster Auditorium Events Will Emphasize the Power of Music

102 Paterno Library will be hosting two free events this Thursday and Friday to celebrate the music of Folk legend Woody Guthrie, who would’ve turned 100 years old this July.

The Thursday event, from 7-9 p.m, is a master class called “Stand Up and Sing” where some local musicians will be showcasing their songs that were selected by the hosts of the Music2Life competition: Noel Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul, & Mary), R&B singer Carolyn Malachi, and PA folk singer Jason McIntyre.

The three hosts will be performing their own songs as well as leading discussions on the importance of music for social change.  The most favorable local artist will be chosen to help celebrate “Woody Guthrie’s Legacy to the American Labor Movement”  by playing at the State Theatre on Friday night at 8 p.m.  In addition to Paul Stookey, other artists playing include Si Kahn, Anne Feeney, Joe Uehlein, Mike Stout, and Saul Broudy.  Tickets for the concert are on sale for $23.

The Friday event at Foster Auditorium, which begins at 2 p.m, is called “Music Matters: A Live Multimedia Documentary.”  The event will feature Stookey and Malachi, as well as Jasiri X, a Pittsburgh-based hip hop artist. The purpose for this event is to prove — just as the title states — that music does matter in the modern day society, especially timeless music that calls for social change.  This event will feature performances, video clips, and dialogue among the artists to discuss the need for music as revolutionary tool that can change the world we live in.
