Road Scholar
Program #20672ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Jule Styne once said, “A song without words is just a piece of music.” Survey the work of some of the greatest writers of popular song lyrics including Ira Gershwin, Lorenz Hart, Dorothy Fields and many more. Examine the lives, careers and music of two jazz royals: Pianist, bandleader and composer Edward Kennedy Ellington, better known as "the Duke," and clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman. From silent films of Chaplin and Keaton to filming the tangos of Valentino, discover how artists put a three-dimensional art form (dance) into a two-dimensional film.


Highlights

• Learn about Gershwin's “Fascinating Rhythm,” Hart's “I'll Take Manhattan,” and Fields' “I Can't Give You Anything But Love.”
• Enjoy recordings, video excerpts and live performances during lectures as lively as the music itself!
• Explore the successful dance films of Astaire, Kelly, Champion, Kidd and DeMille.
