Janet Mandel taught English, Art History and World Language and Cultures in New Jersey’s public schools for 32 years. In 2003 she was named runner-up for the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) Teacher of the Year award and was recognized by the NJ State Legislature and Governor Codey for this achievement.

How Music Works
Tuesdays, May 28; June 4, 11 & 18
10:30 am to 12 pm
Barry Wiesenfeld will present this four-part series designed to give participants a deeper understanding of music. We will touch on music history, theory and milestones of the different eras and composers who made their mark. While primarily focused on classical music, there is a significant element of jazz in the program as well, and interestingly, the parallels that exist in the two styles – a topic not often explored.
Barry Wiesenfeld is an award-winning musician, a published author, and is on the music faculty of SUNY and Ramapo College. He has accompanied Grammy-winning artists, toured internationally, and performed on numerous recordings, radio and TV.
