FM #533 - Franklin Cultural Council Kaye Kelly 05/04/21 (audio)

FM #533 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 533  in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Kaye Kelly, Co-Chair of the Franklin Cultural Council. We had our conversation via virtual conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about how the Cultural Council supported the community with art events during this pandemic. From art contests in March 2020, to the widely popular Halloween Decorating Contest, to Master Classes featuring cooking lessons and art. What is next for the Cultural Council? Stay tuned, there is a big event coming in September. We get some teasers to share.

We also learn about ‘ear training’, one of the core classes in the music curriculum at Berklee College of Music where Kaye teaches. We might have to do another session to learn more about ‘ear training.’

The recording runs about 45 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Kaye
