Schedule of Performances
1-2pm: “Miki and the North Wind” performed by the Queens College Puppeteers
Miki’s father is missing in a land of ice and snow. Despite being a small child, now Miki has to be the family provider. But someone or something is stealing the things Miki needs to survive. Could it be the North Wind is a thief, and behind what happening? Based on an adaptation of the story by Anne Miranda, nine puppeteers, most of whom are also New York City visual art teachers, will perform the show live, as a culminating art piece for their Queens College graduate education craft course. The puppeteers are graduate education students in the college’s Secondary Education department. Consistent with Queens College’s value to give back to the community, this puppet show is a way for the skilled art education professionals to make meaningful connections with families and urban communities.
2:30-3pm: Corona Youth Music Project
Founded in 2010 in Corona (Queens, NY) to empower youth, fight poverty, and promote social inclusion through music education and performance, it is the first organization in Queens that is part of “El Sistema,” a global movement of music for social change. Through their participation in the Orchestra, children are given the opportunity to become valued assets to the Corona community.
