Music of the West African Kora (harp) comes to the Prescott Valley Public Library

PRESCOTT VALLEY AZ – Come to the Prescott Valley Public Library on March 7th to relax, listen and learn about the ancient, twenty-one stringed West African Kora (harp) performed by musical sensation, Sean Gaskell.  Traditional songs that are the heart and soul of the Kora’s musical repertoire will be featured, in addition to Gaskell’s personal compositions.  Between songs, Gaskell will teach listeners about the Kora and its cultural significance, how he was introduced to it, and what it was like to live in Gambia while he studied extensively under the instruction of other Kora masters.  Gaskell has been featured at numerous festivals in the United States, Gambia, and Senegal.

The Kora is native to the Mande people who live within the countries of Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau. The music is traditionally played by oral and musical historians known as Griots. The Kora is a melodic and seemingly peaceful instrument, which is somewhat contrary to its musical repertoire. Many songs tell ancient stories of war and hardship, while others praise people of high political status. While the Kora is only 300 years old, some commonly played songs can be traced back to 800 years.

Join us at the Prescott Valley Public Library for this unique, exciting performance!

Tuesday, March 7 6-7pm 1st floor Auditorium

PVPL- 7401 E. Civic Circle

This family-friendly concert is free, and no registration is required. Call 928-759-3040 if you have any questions.

Phippen Museum Presents Docents Select

January 29th – June 18th, 2017

 

The Phippen Museum’s outstanding volunteer docents spend a good deal of their time as tour guides, helping both adults and children understand the themes and artistic techniques associated with the museum’s ongoing exhibits. But, from time to time, their special skills are also utilized to help curate museum exhibits by suggesting a specific artist or artwork for display that, for one reason or another, has captivated their imagination or piqued their interest.

So from January 29th through June 18th, the Phippen Museum invites you to come experience some of their docent’s favorite pieces in the exhibition, Docents Select. Created from pieces acquired since the museum’s founding in 1984, this exhibit demonstrates the broad variety of artwork in the Phippen’s Permanent Collection, the docents keen sense of wonder and the historical significance of this community's thoughtful generosity.

But with the opening of any exhibit comes the closing of another. And after three months on display, National Parks: 100 Years will come down this Sunday, January 22nd. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of America's National Parks, this exhibition features a specially-selected collection of stunning, juried photographs from local camera club members. But if you’d like to see these spectacular images from some of the nation's most popular landscapes of the west, you’ll need to hurry.

The Phippen Museum is the foremost repository for western artwork in this area, housing hundreds of outstanding pieces that illustrate more than a century’s worth of ranching history. The museum is located only a few minutes north of downtown Prescott at 4701 Highway 89 North. For additional information on these or any other events at the museum, please call (928)778-1385, or visit their website at www.phippenartmuseum.org. And if you have a special interest or background in art or western history and heritage, the museum is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers and docents who would like to share their time and expertise.
