Kravitz’s Musical Clips
7.30pm Monday 19 November
We are delighted to welcome back David Kravitz for a new series when he will
be presenting a selection of clips. David was born in Wales, but lived much
of his life in Manchester and Bournemouth, England before making Aliyah in
2004. His musical tastes range from rock and roll to opera, musicals to
classics. Before retiring, he worked in computing, latterly as a university
lecturer. David's collection of musical film DVDs has grown to almost 1,100
which actually makes selection of items more difficult.
The second session in David’s autumn series is That’s Dancing. As well as
Fred, Gene and Bob Fosse (both as artist and choreographer) this collection
contains a number of rarer items but still enough to get those feet tapping.
Starting from a number from Kiss me Kate that the BBC banned from the
opening night of BBC2, it includes Carmen Miranda in colour, Jimmy Cagney
and Aretha Franklin who died this past summer. Look forward to Cyd Charisse,
Virginia Mayo, Ann-Margret, Laurel & Hardy (!), Donald O'Conner and a
glimpse of an American president, a good night for dancing.
Save the following dates for the other sessions of David’s presentations:
7.30pm Monday 17 December Members' Requests
7.30pm Monday 14 January 2019 The Ones That Got Away
His programs will leave you with a smile and humming all the way home.
