The Brook Arts Center presents Pulitzer Prize-winning 1996 Best Musical Tony Award winner, "RENT. Written by Jonathan Larson and debuting on Broadway 25 years ago, “RENT” will run November 12-21, 2021. Inspired by Puccini’s La Bohème, “RENT” follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side under the shadow of HIV/AIDS epidemic of the early 1990s. “RENT” is a dramatic, yet uplifting story, using rock music to evoke the tough, angry, and terrifying reality of a world wrought with drug addiction, suicide, and AIDS, all underscored by a theme of hope. For a quarter of a century, Jonathan Larson’s “RENT” has inspired us to choose love over fear and to live without regret. With its inspiring message of joy and aspiration in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love. The Media and Performance Collective and Brook Arts Center are producing RENT to benefit Club Serenity, a New Jersey non-profit organization dedicated to providing recovery services to those addicted to alcohol and drugs.

On Saturday, November 20th at 7 PM the Rockingham Association presents The Practitioners of Musick in a virtual program entitled “Nothing More Agreeable - Music in the Washington Family”. In a document dated June 4, 1777 General George Washington wrote, “Nothing is more agreeable and ornamental than good music”. The Practitioners concert with commentary will thus explore the agreeable and remarkable musical work of three select generations of the extended Washington family. The General, while a fine dancer and avid theater goer, is not known to have played a musical instrument of any sort. Yet he and Martha, who had received harpsichord lessons, well understood the value of music and dance as a social grace and saw to it that the children under their care received a thorough musical education. The repertory for the concert is drawn from bound volumes of 18th-century manuscript and especially printed sheet music directly associated with the Washington family sourced in Great Britain and the early Federal period in America.
