Watkinson School, a coed independent day school for grades 6-PG, announces the second event of the series Freshly Squeezed with Colin McEnroe. Join us the night before Valentine’s Day for “The History of the Love Song” on February 13, 2013 at 7pm. Mr. McEnroe will moderate a discussion on how popular music is frequently our entree to our often-misunderstood first encounters with romantic love. And for all of us, our parents never liked what we were listening to. Panelists for the evening include Steve Metcalf, director of Instrumental Music at the University of Hartford’s Hartt School of Music, and Emma Walker, a Hartt School of Music graduate who currently is a copyright administrator for Sony Music Entertainment. The evening will also feature Watkinson School 9-person a capella vocal group, called Vox Wat.
Based on the premise that everyone loves a juicy conversation and in the best tradition of Connecticut conversation, Freshly Squeezed with Colin McEnroe is a series of nimble, participatory and personal events hosted by Colin McEnroe. All of the profit from ticket sales benefits the education programs of three shining Hartford institutions: Billings Forge, Hartford Stage and the Mark Twain House. The series is generously sponsored by Fiduciary Investment Advisors.
