For a couple centuries now, composers have sought out one special source for inspiration and (more often than not) a catchy bit of melody. Their secret? Folk music. Bartók to Bebop presents the works of four very different composers -- Robert Schumann, Béla Bartók, Chick Corea and Benedikt Brydern -- each influenced by the folk music of his respective homeland. Hear Schumann's passionate Piano Quartet Op. 47, Bartók's fiery duos for two violins, Corea's rock/jazz fusion and Brydern's witty Bebop for Beagles. Such an eclectic program demands truly remarkable performers: In this case, virtuosic couple (and Levine faculty artists) cellist Vasily Popov and pianist Ralitza Patcheva are teaming up with the dazzling violin/viola duo "marcolivia" (Marc Ramirez and Olivia Hajioff). Enjoy the latest installment of Levine's Folk Music Reimagined: Culture, Tradition, Fusion series at the Washington DCJCC. Learn More

Mr. Mosley is a brilliant writer. He was entertaining and informative. He discussed his life and shared moments of his life in Los Angeles. He read a few pages from his book "Little Green" and then had a "Q and A". Afterwards, book signing. I was lucky to get a picture with him. I've only read two of his books out of 43 or so. But after attending this event I've become a fan and will read all of his books. The event was well organized and the audience was a mixed crowd.

[A] major event for crime-fiction fans." --Bill Ott, Booklist
