Livingston Taylor, Berman Artist and Flurry Guest
Sandwiched between the first two real snowstorms of the winter, the February Flurry on Saturday evening, 6 February, drew a festive crowd of parents, faculty, and staff. The Parents’ Auxiliary’s annual mid-winter bash (inaugurated back in 2009 as The Moveable Feast) brings the School community together for excellent food, great conversation, and wonderful entertainment.
As has been true for past Flurries, this year’s featured guest performed in Hall for the whole school earlier in the week as the Claire Berman Artist in Residence. Livingston Taylor, professor of voice and stage performance at Berklee, shared his wisdom and advice on the art of performance on 2 February in the Smith Theater for the boys (his book, The Care and Feeding of Your Audience, says it all), and came back for the Flurry-goers to perform his music on the stage.
Livingston Taylor picked up his first guitar at the age of 13, beginning a 40-year career that has encompasses performance, songwriting, and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a musical family that includes James Taylor and has recorded multiple top 40 hits. He has been teaching at Berklee for the last 25 years.
Congratulations to our parent volunteers in the PA for another spectacular event!
