Upcoming Events

Holiday Watercolor Class

Hazel Jarvis is back for a two-part watercolor class on Friday, December 1, and Friday, December 8, from 9:30-11:30 am. This is a two-part class; please register for both parts. (While participants can attend only one class, preference will be given to those able to commit to both as the two classes will be closely connected, with the projects building upon and reinforcing each other.)

Ms. Jarvis received a BA in History and Theory of Art from Sussex University in England. Upon moving to the United States, she studied botanical illustration in New York and, during a five-year residency in Tokyo in the 1990s, studied traditional Japanese painting.

Ms. Jarvis lives and teaches in Greenwich, Connecticut.  For more information, visit her web site, and for an up-to-date view of her artwork,  follow her on instagram @hazeljarvisstudio.

Please register for this free class.

NOTE: Class is limited to 12 participants.

Sunday Morning Yoga @ Perrot

We had such a positive response to our Yoga on the Patio class this summer, that we’ve decided to offer a weekly yoga class for adults on Sunday mornings from 8 am to 9:15 am. The next class is Sunday, December 3. Sarah McCarty will be the instructor. The class will take place on our patio just outside the Youth Services Department as long as the weather permits. Once temperatures fall or in the case of rain or other inclement weather, the class will be held in the Youth Services Program Room, Radcliffe Children’s Library, Perrot Memorial Library.

You don’t have to attend each week, but you do need to register if you’re planning to attend. Class size is limited to 15 students. All students must supply their own yoga mat.

Sarah McCarty is a RYT200 and certified reiki practitioner. This yoga class will encourage you to connect with yourself and totally engage with your body. Emphasis will be on clear healthy alignment in yoga poses as well as learning breath awareness and simple meditation techniques. There are no prerequisites (You don’t need to touch your toes!). The class is designed for every body and all levels to enjoy the stress relieving and strength-building benefits of yoga.

The New York Holiday Singers Present Sounds of the Season

To get you into the holiday spirit, we’ve invited the New York Holiday Singers to perform a special holiday concert: “Sounds of the Season: A Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa Holiday Concert.” Join us on Monday, December 4, at 7 pm in the Youth Services Department, Radcliffe Children’s Library, Perrot Memorial Library.

The New York Holiday Singers are NYC’s most in-demand contemporary carolers, seen singing all-new versions of holiday favorites on Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning, Fox 5 NY, NBC New York, and at Loews Regency New York, Bryant Park, Hermés, Dolce and Gabbana, Godiva, and hundreds more private and public events throughout the tri-state area. The Singers were formed in 2009 by Greg Kefalas and Jen Arvay Kefalas, the husband-and-wife team behind New York Holiday Singers, Inc. And, not to brag, but thanks to the hard work of dozens of Singers over the years, we’ve done nothing but grow since.

To reach their goals, the Singers hold auditions in the summertime and begin rehearsing in late summer, working every week until Thanksgiving to master their massive and challenging songbook. It’s a truly different approach to holiday entertainment and a lot of work, but it all comes together in the most fun and beautiful holiday vocal entertainment in New York City!

Please register for this free event.
