One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water.

Lecture |
A number of policy reforms in post-Soviet countries and beyond have been conducted within the framework of the technocratic model. Policy proposals have been developed and to some extent implemented by certain teams of professionals appointed by legitimate political leaders. The leaders, in turn, have tended to monopolize policy adoption and evaluation and to insulate the substance of reforms from public opinion. Vladimir Gel'man's presentation will present a critical reassessment of the technocratic model of policy-making in the context of the post-Soviet changes of the 1990s–2010s.

Welcome Miss Ida Keeling, the 102-year-old, world-record-holding runner. Miss Ida, as she’s affectionately known throughout her community, isn’t your typical runner. At 102-years-old, her fierce independence helped her through the Depression and the Civil Rights movement as a single mother to four children living in New York City. But her greatest trials were yet to come. Ida’s two sons were brutally murdered. Justice was never found. Miss Ida felt she didn’t have the strength to carry on, and that she couldn’t hope anymore. Miss Ida will be in conversation Alison Desir, founder of Harlem Run.

How can we define the elusive quality of "Italian-ness" in music? This discussion group gives voice and vocabulary to our intuitions about Italian music, both instrumental and vocal. You'll listen to music from the sublime Palestrina, pinnacle of the Italian Renaissance; through Monteverdi, Lulli, Cherubini, Puccini, Respighi and more; to John Corigliano and our modern world, naming Italian characteristics and asking whether they stand the test of time. What Makes It Italian is a music listening and discussion group that is open to everyone. Attendance at all meetings, which take place on Tuesdays from April 10 to May 15, is encouraged, as the discussions are cumulative. Led by Gina Crusco, who also guides listening at the Riverdale Y, formerly music instructor at The New School and director of Underworld Productions Opera.

How and why our brains are wired to regulate our thoughts and emotions, what happens when our ability to regulate fails, and how mindfulness can be used as a tool to maintain self-regulation in both adults and children. Discussed by Meriah DeJoseph, who has BS in cognitive neuroscience from UCSD and an MA in psychology from Columbia University. How the brain adapts to care for a newborn, and how a baby’s cry can control adult behavior. Her research focuses on the vital bond between parent and child, and investigates the use of neurochemicals, such as the “love drug” oxytocin, as a treatment to strengthen fragile and broken parent-child relationships Discussed by Dr. Bianca Jones-Marlin, PhD.

Galaxies have long captured the awe of philosophers and scientists, leading to the establishment of astronomy as society's very first science. After millennia of observation, the night sky remains an enigma to many, as we are only beginning to comprehend how to ask the right questions. Resolving some of these questions will help us develop into citizens of the universe, so the speakers explain how the Milky Way and other galaxies begin, end, interact, and everything in between.  Speakers: Dr. Mark Richardson, Dr. Kelly Reidy, Nicholas Stone This event is 21+

Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

Program: Sergei Prokofiev: Sonata No. 2 in d minor, Op. 14 Toccata in C Major, Op. 11 Sonata No. 6 in A Major, Op. 82 An evening of musical performance complemented by insights from documentary archives as part of a year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of Sergei Prokofiev’s American debut in New York City. Student Cynthia Liu performs three solo piano works that highlight Prokofiev’s virtuosity as a composer and foreground the notions of interruption and irony, themes that recur brilliantly and tragically in Prokofiev’s art and life. Archivist Natalia Ermolaev complements the music with insights from the archive, illustrating the importance of documentary traces in mapping the complex, transnational impact of Prokofiev’s music for the last century.

Daniel Le, piano. Program Schubert (1797-1828) Sonata in A Major D.664 (1819) Carl Vine (b.1954) Sonata No.1 (1990) Andrew Howes (b.1992) Bird Songs (World Premiere) Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) Sonata No.2 in B-flat minor Op.36 (1931) Grainger (1882-1961) Arrangements About the musician Hailed by Arts Review for his “show stopping virtuoso piano rendering,” Australian pianist Daniel Tang Le has performed at Lincoln Center, Melbourne Recital Center, and Lyric Theatre in Australia, Waseda University in Japan and many more venues. About the Program The Piano Sonata in A major D. 664, Op. posth. 120 was composed by Franz Schubert in the summer of 1819. The manuscript was dedicated to Josephine von Koller of Steyr in Upper Austria, whom he considered to be "very pretty" and "a good pianist." The lyrical nature of this sonata fits the image of a young Schubert in love, living in a summery Austrian countryside, which he also considered to be "unimaginably lovely". Carl Vine is an Australian composer of contemporary classical music. From 1975 he has worked as a pianist and composer with a variety of theatre and dance companies, and ensembles. Vine's catalogue includes seven symphonies, eleven concertos, music for film, television and theatre and many more. Piano Sonata No. 2, Op. 36, was composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff in 1913. When he performed the piece at its premiere in Moscow, it was well received. However, Rachmaninoff himself was not satisfied with the work. He felt that too much in the piece was superfluous.Thus, in 1931, the composer commenced work on a revision, which included shortening and removing some technical difficulties. George Percy Aldridge Grainger was an Australian-born composer, arranger and pianist. In the course of a long and innovative career, he played a prominent role in the revival of interest in British folk music in the early years of the 20th century.  Although much of his work was experimental and unusual, the piece with which he is most generally associated is his piano arrangement of the folk-dance tune "Country Gardens".
