Residents will be inviting their families and friends to come and watch this show with them, and it’s sure to be a very enjoyable afternoon.
Then, on Friday, June 30 an energetic performance by the Jumpin’ Juba Band will be broadcast live and in real time for residents of Southgate at Shrewsbury. When band leader Steve Hurl describes Jumpin’ Juba, he rattles off a list of eclectic musical styles that blend together to form an unforgettable sound, including New Orleans swamp-rock, classic boogie-woogie, Memphis rock & roll, folk, calypso, and country. How could you hear that wild description and not want to hear the music for yourself?
If you aren’t a resident of Southgate at Shrewsbury and are interested in learning more information or taking a tour so that you might find yourself living here to enjoy performances like these in the near future, please give us a call.
Resident history buffs take note: Prof. Gary Hylander’s engaging and educational lecture series “Jefferson and Jackson: The Presidency Democratized” wraps up this week. The sixth and final event in the series takes place on Wednesday, May 24.
If you’ve heard Prof. Hylander speak during any of the first five parts of this series, then you will already know what a good storyteller he is, bringing together interesting facts and intriguing stories of the events that have shaped our nation’s history. If you haven’t yet made it to one of his lectures, then you won’t want to miss out on your chance to partake in the finale. It explores the time between the election of Thomas Jefferson in 1800 to the Age of Jackson in 1850.
Residents who would like more information about future lecture series and other education events can contact Deanna or Eileen in the Program Department.
