Please join us as we celebrate the immense musical talent of the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra (ALFO) who will present a special program curated especially for FML! The Afro Latin Jazz Alliance (ALJA) was founded in 2007 by GRAMMY-award winning, pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill. With the support of a group of prominent leaders from the worlds of jazz and Latin culture, O’Farrill launched ALJA to serve as a non-profit organization that could advance both the performance and educational aspects of this uniquely Pan-American art form. The group has reached over one million people worldwide during the pandemic alone! Among other recognitions, the New York Times featured AFLO’s virtual programming as one of the “10 Best Quarantine Concerts Online”.  The ALJA performs, educates about, and preserves the music of all of the Americas, emanating from African and indigenous roots, through the entry point of jazz. ALJA embraces its mission with a commitment to social justice, equity, inclusion, and the equality of all cultures worldwide.

Please join us as we co-host with the Rockland County Center for the Arts to combine the revolutionary forces of art and wellness. Creativity is part of human nature. Especially now, it is important to recognize and engage the creative problem-solving capacities that we all innately have. This special session focuses on key attitudes, or Habits of Mind, that enable you tap your creativity more effectively and express it more confidently.  In turn, the satisfaction of creating anything new and personally meaningful is known to enhance a sense of overall well-being.  Building on the synergy between creativity and well-being, this interactive session features creative strategies that can help us thrive, even in uncertain times. This workshop will be led by Diane Rosen who is a NY based artist, writer and educator.
