Master classes. Lunch and learns. Early childhood programs. Backstage tours. Student spotlights.
The Lied Center for Performing Arts believes in the power of arts education to enrich lives and open hearts — and believes it should be accessible to everyone.
Beginning June 30, Lied Learning Online will present a new education event each week, ranging from musical theater master classes for students to creative movement for preschoolers to lunchtime topics for all ages. Participants will go backstage at the Lied to learn how the magic happens, meet exceptional students and alumni and explore new trends in the arts. The free sessions will stream on the Lied’s Facebook page unless otherwise noted.
June and July Lied Learning Online events include:
June 30, noon: Lunch and Learn — Hamilton: The Man Behind the Musical: This half-hour class focuses on all things Alexander Hamilton. In anticipation of the release of the blockbuster musical on Disney+, participants can explore the process of bringing American history to the stage.
July 9, 10 a.m.: Tiny Lieders — Blast Off to Outer Space: Yoga, Movement and Music: Kerfuffle is an arts organization that creates experiences for children 6 and under and will lead this hour-long session of movement, music and fun.
July 16, 1 p.m.: Master Classes at the Lied: Musical Theater Song Interpretation: What does it take to get cast in a show? Middle and high school students are invited to join professional theater artists from the Lied staff in small groups to learn how to prepare for an audition. Advance sign-up is required, and the class will be conducted in a private Zoom session.
