Is there a song in your heart?
Is there a story you are bursting to tell through words and music?

Do you love listening to songs on the radio or Spotify and want to try writing one yourself?

Virtual lyric-based songwriting workshop led by librettist and lyricist Marella Martin Koch.
You will 1) find your title, 2) choose a song form, and 3) leave with a first draft of lyrics for your song. Plus, you will have fun and meet new friends!
Perfect for first-time songwriters, there will be plenty of time for questions and many opportunities to learn by doing in this Zoom workshop presented by Inwood Art Works in association with The Rally Cat.

This virtual workshop is limited to 8 participants, and is first-come-first served.

Lost Inwood: Dyckman Oval, NYC’s legendary and nearly forgotten Pro Sports Stadium.

Don Rice presents a newly researched talk about the Dyckman Oval stadium, Inwood’s historic sporting venue. Before pro sports were integrated, the Oval was home to professional African-American and Latin-American baseball teams. Over 30 hall of famers stepped up to the plate, right here in Inwood. It’s also where Fritz Pollard’s Brown Bombers pro football team played for three seasons during the NFL’s ban on black athletes in the 1930s. It’s an amazing story that has largely faded from history. Play ball!
