See Front Desk for sign up instructions; registration is by mail. Classes are limited. Classes held at the Saratoga Senior Center are:

• Introduction to Classical Music: Tuesdays • 1 – 2:30 p.m.
5 weeks beginning Jan 25. Facilitated by Patricia Brady. Come and learn more about classical music, or catch the classical music bug. Media such as slides, videos, and recordings will be used to listen to compositions from Strauss to Stravinsky. There is no preparation. Just come with your ears open and your souls ready to be touched.

• Journal Writing: A Path to Understanding & Healing: Wednesdays • 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
5 weeks beginning Jan 26. Facilitated by Patricia A. Nugent. Journaling is an effective and therapeutic tool for better understanding ourselves and others, managing daily stress and anxiety, improving overall health, healing old wounds, and finding answers within. This class will review best practices in the art of journaling, as well as offer opportunities and reasons to “go deeper.” Both long-time journal-keepers and beginners will benefit. Bring paper and a writing instrument to first class but do not purchase a journal...yet.

• The Six Wives of Henry VIII Broadway Musical: Thursdays 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
5 weeks beginning Jan 27. Facilitated by Kathy Welch. In the style of the hit show “Hamilton,” a new Broadway musical called “Six” examines the lives of the wives of King Henry VIII. The musical, sung in the style of a pop concert competition between the wives, gives us an idea of their ultimate fates: “divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.”
