Norman Rockwell Museum in collaboration with Tanglewood Learning Institute

August 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join Hip Hop and theater artist Baba Israel, Illustrator Louis Henry Mitchell, Jazz and electronic artist Sean Nowell, bassist Mary Ann McSweeney, Boston Symphony Orchestra percussionist Will Hudgins, and host Rebecca Sheir for an adventure through visual art, storytelling and music. In this interactive program, participants will help shape the creative direction of a series of musical improvisations that create the score for Mitchell’s original illustrations and storytelling performance. The music will combine live instruments, wind and mallet synths, live looping and beatbox. Baba Israel will take audience input, words, and ideas to help shape
Mitchell’s improvised drawings of a character whose unique features and storyline will evolve in real time guided by the audience’s feedback. Audience members will be invited to learn to beatbox, play with vocal fx, trigger samples and synths and contribute their voices and sounds to the loops and music created. No musical experience needed just a sense of curiosity and a celebration of our collective imagination.
NOTE: This program takes place at Tanglewood in Studio E, Linde Center for Music and Learning, Lenox/Stockbridge, MA
