Build with us! Each month there'll be a suggested theme. It's up to you whether your creation reflects that theme or your own creative expression. Work alone or in a group. You'll have 45 minutes for building, 5 minutes to clean up and 10 minutes to show off your work. We'll display the creations until next month. For kids ages five and up; five to eight year olds must be accompanied by an adult.

Los Angeles-based composer and pianist Kait Dunton along with bassist Cooper Appelt and drummer Jake Reed Bring a modern , tight and groovy sound to the piano trio format. They shuffle wide-ranging influences and Kait's innovative compositions into a refreshingly modern take on instrumental music - including some classic favorites - that is as uncategorizable as it is infectious. Fused together via Kait's music, the trio melds into a laser-focused single entity that is captivating, playful, and exciting.
Kait has produced and released three albums of original compositions, with a fourth featuring her equally out-of-the- box arranging style. Recognized on Jazz.com as one of "10 Future Female Jazz Stars," she has been described by critic Don Heckman as "an extraordinary talent on the rise" with impressive compositional skills.
The program is generously sponsored by the Bartush Family Foundation.

In a moment when we seem to be in a disagreeable mood as a nation, with sides drawn, and issues turning into flashpoints, it is time for our annual on-stage conversation with Morris and Steve.
These two very smart, very well-informed analysts will have their annual discussion on economics and the national political scene. They will do so by framing their talk with history and their personal friendship. Morris and Steve may not always vote the same way, but they always give us a special program of insight, facts, and their collective look at America and the world in a time when shouting has replaced too much of our civil discourse.
Ample time for audience Q&A will be provided but no shouting allowed!
Morris Beschloss is a global economic analyst. Steve Kelly is the host of "Kelly's Corner" weekdays 4 to 6 PM on 1450 KCOD-AM.
