Maria Newman and Friends
Renowned composer and musician Maria Newman will make a rare Seattle-area appearance in a benefit concert for BARN. She’ll lead a program of live music and conversation, performing her own compositions with three other accomplished musicians. The evening will include the showing of a silent film, with live accompaniment composed and performed by Newman.
The program, to be performed in the Great Room at BARN, will include four original works:
In addition to Newman, performers will include Scott Hosfield, acclaimed violist and conductor and Music Director of the Malibu Coast Chamber Orchestra and the Malibu Coast Silent Film Orchestra. Also performing will be Dr. Hal Ott, professor of flute at Central Washington University, and BARN member Dr. Chris Eisenberg, pianist.
Newman, who is the youngest child of 9-time Academy Award winning movie composer Alfred Newman and actress and Goldwyn girl Martha Louise Montgomery, is a composer of classical music, a violinist, violist and pianist. She has received recognition and commendation from the Annenberg Foundation, the United State Congress and the Mary Pickford Foundation. Newman’s library of original works represents a range of genres, from large scale orchestral works, works for the ballet, chamber works, choral and vocal works, to new collaborative scores for vintage silent film.

Making real food at home more often is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health. Not only are whole foods more nutritious than processed ones, but getting in the kitchen early helps kids build lifelong self-care skills and love of healthy food. Doing this with a busy life, however, means learning flexibility and how to “cook imperfectly amidst the chaos.”
We’ll spend the first part of this uniquely structured class preparing some kid-approved lunch foods that can be made in advance to keep well all week in the fridge, including PB+J Power Balls, Amazing Rainbow Salad, Creamy Butternut Kale Soup, and Sassy Sesame Noodles.
We’ll learn to identify whole foods and will also discuss science-based tips for feeding children in a way that promotes growing up with a healthy relationship to food. In the second part of the class, we’ll enjoy our tasty lunch while getting “down and dirty” with some hands-on meal planning.
Each participant/family will have the opportunity to create and decorate their own “meal planning binder” and fill it with starter recipes and menu ideas. We’ll also practice making a “10 minute meal plan” for the week.
