"Warm and happy... tender and soulful" is how Downbeat Magazine describes Jim Clayton's music. He calls it "bebop with a touch of New Orleans," his second home. The award-winning pianist saw his latest album "Lenny Jumps In" land on the jazz radio charts in Canada and the USA. Jim's entertained audiences around the globe, from ex-pats in Asia to our troops in Bosnia. Joining Jim is London's award-winning jazz songstress Sonja Gustafson.  She brings a cool verve to classic and lesser-known standards. Sonja is dazzling whether performing passionate ballads, scatting with abandon, or crooning popular covers.

 

The Sanderson Centre and the James Hillier Foundation present An Evening With Dr. Jane Goodall

Thu Sep 27 7:00 PM

Dr. Jane Goodall first set foot in what is now known as Gombe Stream National Park in 1960 when she launched her pioneering research with wild chimpanzees. She was only 26 years old. Her research project was unlike any other and has taught us so much about our closest cousins in the animal kingdom. In 1977, Jane founded the Jane Goodall Institute, which continues to support the research at Gombe.  In 1991, after meeting with a group of Tanzanian teenagers to discuss community problems, Jane created Roots & Shoots.  This program is dedicated to inspiring and supporting young people to take action for sustainable communities. Roots & Shoots groups are active in nearly 100 countries with approximately 150,000 youth participating.
