ART BEAT FOUNDATION presents

STUDENT WORK with

DANIEL POPSICLE and Bay Area K-12 EDUCATORS

Pubs Opens at 2pm // Show from 4:00-7:00pm // All-Ages Welcome // FREE! // wheelchair accessible //Kitchen Open.

Composer and high school math teacher Dan Plonsey has set his students’ essays to music, creating a hilarious and heartbreaking song cycle played by his legendary big band. Joined by Bay Area teachers ready to share tales of the classroom, this off-beat afternoon combines homework assistance, storytelling, and live performances by Daniel Popsicle from the Student Work oeuvre, with its post-apocalyptic sound evocative of Thai brass bands, Indian wedding bands, ironic Dutch bands, Sun Ra Arkestra, Braxtonian creative music orchestras and junior high bands. Includes a couple pop quizzes for the audience.
