The four 90-minute classes will culminate in a live Student Showcase, where the Teen Intensive team performs for family and friends. While no previous improv experience is necessary, students must be committed to the program and serious about their desire to learn and perform. For teenagers ages 13-17, with any level of experience.

Women in Baltimore:  Indentures, Engineers, and Washerwomen

WHEN: Saturday, March 31, begins at 10:00 PM and ends at 4:00 PM.  Tour begins at Mount Clare, lunch at the B&O Railroad Museum, and ends at the Irish Railroad Workers Museum.
Mount Clare, B&O Railroad Museum, Irish Railroad Workers Museum
TICKETS: Space is limited: prepaid reservations are required. $40.00 for members and $50.00 for non-members.

The B&O Railroad along with Mount Clare Museum House and the Irish Railroad Workers Museum will host a joint event honoring women’s contributions to Baltimore’s rich history.  The day will feature a tour at Mt. Clare, a lunch and lecture at the B&O Railroad Museum, and a tour and reception at the Irish Railroad Workers Museum.  Please join us to remember the ladies!

Mount Clare Museum House is the 1760s home of Charles Carroll, Barrister.  The B&O Railroad Museum is home to an extensive collection of American Railroading objects and the birthplace of American Railroading.  The Irish Railroad Workers Museum is a historic site in Baltimore, Maryland, that celebrated the history of the immense Irish presence in Southwest Baltimore City in the late 1840s.

Mount Clare Museum House:

Tour this 18th century mansion from the perspective of an Irish indentured servant.  This first-person tour will be led by a docent playing the part of an indentured servant, discussing life at the mansion from the perspective of women who labored there.  Uncover her thoughts and experiences as a poor Irish immigrant bound for five years to Charles Carroll, Barrister, one of the wealthiest men in Baltimore in the 1760s.

B&O Railroad Museum:

Olive W. Dennis was the first woman civil engineer on the B&O Railroad and in American railroading. Her contributions to the improvement of passenger service won her the unofficial title of “the woman who took the pain out of the train.” At a time and in an industry that could barely conceive of a woman doing a man’s work, this remarkable woman prevailed and left an indelible mark. Historian Sharon Harwood will introduce the audience to Olive Dennis and remember her railroad legacy through the inventions, creative designs, work ethic, and the talent that made her ‘The Lady Engineer’ of the B&O Railroad.

Irish Railroad Workers Museum:

Visit the home and workplace of Sarah Liberty Feeley, a homemaker and mother of six who ran her home, raised children, supported her husband’s career with the B & O Railroad, cared for boarders and took in laundry to contribute to the family finances. Learn how illiterate Irish girls, raised in the simplest rural circumstances, developed the skills needed to run an urban rowhouse and maintain a good measure of financial independence within married life. A tour of the Museum and reception to follow.

There is plenty of free parking at the mansion in Carroll Park and at the B&O Railroad Museum

The B&O Railroad Museum™, a full affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of American railroading and its impact on American society, culture and economy. The Museum is home to the oldest, most comprehensive collection of railroad artifacts in the Western Hemisphere including an unparalleled roster of 19th and 20th century railroad equipment. The 40-acre historic site is regarded as the birthplace of American Railroading and includes the 1851 Mt. Clare Station, the 1884 Baldwin Roundhouse and first mile of commercial railroad track in America. For further information on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, please call 410-752-2490 or visit

Sound artist Jon "wobbly" Leidecker, supported by videos curated by M.C. Schmidt @ The Red Room Thursday

WHEN: Thursday, March 29, beginning at 9PM with doors opening at 8:30 
Normal’s Books and Records, 425 E 31st Street, Baltimore
At free events, we always relish the idea that you might buy a book, a DVD or a record, or a CD, or a magazine to support Normal’s generous contribution to All Of World Culture, and High Zero in particular.

Image result for Jon “Wobbly” LeideckerPlease join High Zero Foundation in welcoming a frequent visitor to our Baltimore back once again, this time with a talk about sound art, or “music” rather than a “musical” sound art performance.

Jon “Wobbly” Leidecker is a veteran sound artist concerned with a process called “sampling”, or perhaps more accurately “appropriative collage”.
He’s worked with People Like Us, Fred Frith, Matmos (and many more) and is a member of Negativland, several of which projects use sampling as a primary means of...creation.

This practice has led to a thorough examination of the history of sampling, and this research led to a commission from the Museum of Modern Art Barcelona to make a “podcast” about that history.

Jon will present an hour long version of this amazing history with aural illustrations.

High Zero staff member M.C. Schmidt will round out this evening by projecting some videos related to this subject material from his extensive collection of video art.

Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their lives. Drummer Dan and bassist, trombonist, and composer Chris cut their first record together in 1966—nearly a half century ago. They’ve subsequently played a variety of styles in a number of different groups, as well as with their father, jazz giant Dave Brubeck, and with their own Brubeck Brothers Band.

Although the band's style is rooted in “ straight-ahead” jazz, their concerts reveal an inherent ability to explore and play odd time signatures while naturally integrating the influences of funk, blues and world music.
