Kim Waters Live at Blues Alley

February 20, 2020

Saxophonist, composer and producer Kim Waters will be performing live at Blues Alley on February 27 through March 1, 2020.


Waters has enjoyed a career longevity that is rare in the music business. For close to two decades  has been one of the premier architects of Urban Smooth Jazz and a beacon of light in contemporary jazz. He has garnered praise from critics and fans alike, amassing record sales of over a million albums and ranks among the top five best-selling instrumentalists in jazz. Kim Waters’ music has fine-tuned the perfect combination of sensitivity and brawn, intellect and emotion and technique and soulfulness.


Kim Waters is the epitome of cool. The Washington Post says the model-handsome and charming saxophonist is "like a romantic pied piper out on a long evening stroll...he has a flair for composing seductive melodies" while JazzTimes Magazine hails Waters"" sax stylings as "effortlessly expressive."

Get Creative at Halcyon Arts Lab

January 2, 2020

Do you want to open space in your life for creative practice? If you do, start the new year with this 4-part workshop series from Halcyon Arts Lab.

Nicole Salimbene leads participants in a series of writing and art exercises introducing visual journaling as a tool for reflection, inquiry, and meditation. No prior art skills needed. This is not an art class to learn traditional representational art skills, but an invitation to inspire curiosity and to experience the transformational power of art-making. Through creative experimentation that is focused not on producing an art object, but an unfolding practice, this workshop provides space for a deeper awareness of the internal and external matters guiding your life and work to emerge. Cost of materials is included with your ticket.
Nicole Salimbene has created a method for using the artistic process to develop mindfulness and to enrich vocational wellness, and has brought this approach to various academic institutions, community settings and professional associations. She has led workshops in affiliation with American University, Clark University, Lama Foundation, The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, Wesley Theological Seminary, Ghost Ranch and World Wildlife Fund. 

Four date workshop: January 12, 19, 26, and February 2, 3:00-4:30 pm each session.
