The artists gave a sample of their talent to the packed room, they joined into a performance that eventually involved everyone in the room Artists (l to r above) are: David Azarch, Percussionist in Residence, who leads very popular percussion workshops each week; Ismail Butera, who plays the accordion and is an NYMC Musician in Residence; Jennie Smith-Peers with Elders Share the Arts, comes to communities and leads Improv workshops;  Gary Glazner; members of Rhythm Break Cares dance program; Tara Kacak, NYMC Multimedia Artist in Residence.  Gary’s presented a poem called “Love,” created by collecting statements about love from everyone in the room earlier in the evening and put all the lines together.  The artists began to draw, the drummers began, the accordion came in, the dancers began to move, and the audience members who were not drumming or shaking their maracas and tamborines were clapping and smiling and having a wonderful time!
