2013 41st Annual Convention
January 15 - 20, 2013
Host - Mike Montgomery
Be Uplifted by the Sounds of the Circus with the Windjammers Unlimited Concert, 2:15 to 3:15 p.m.
The Windjammers perform circus music in a foot tapping concert in the Museum of Art Courtyard. The organization of professional musicians is dedicated to preserving and performing the music of the golden age of the circus.
Dovetailing with the family-oriented programming, Ringling’s Saturdays for Educators also provides personal, as well as professional enrichment, that day for teachers.
The program runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the grounds and includes hands-on workshops. Through the Ringling’s permanent collection teachers learn how they can creatively apply mathematics and sciences to illustrate how circus acts amaze and astound audiences. The cost is $5 per person. It includes lunch, materials, and 3 CEU credit hours. Registration is required. For more information, visit the Ringling’s website at: www.ringling.org.
The Celebrate Circus program is funded in part by the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, Cultural Institutions Program; and in part by the Les and Judy Smout Foundation, as well as the Koski Family Foundation.
