Sergei Prokofiev

Sergei Prokofiev wrote the story and composed the music for Peter and the Wolf in 1936. It was written in two weeks for a children's theatre in Moscow. He wrote the music as a child's introduction to the orchestra with each character being represented by an instrument or group of instruments. Peter and the Wolf was an immediate success and continues to be enjoyed today by children all over the world.

Narrated by Mark Vuorinen, the following musicians will perform the piece:
Wendy Wagler (flute), Sarah Cardwell (oboe), Barbara Hankins (clarinet), Cedric Coleman (bassoon), Trevor Wagler (horn).  Suitable for all ages, perfect for a March Break event.

"Where Moth and Rust Destroy: Archives and the Contest over Anabaptist Information"
David Neufeld stands in the grebel atriumArchives set the parameters of what we can know about early Anabaptists. Examination of archives’ own histories shows that, far from neutral repositories of historical evidence, these collections intensified conflict between early Anabaptists and their opponents. The management of information about nonconformists contributed to their repression, while Anabaptists’ documentary response supported their efforts to survive.

Ben Sung, violinist

The name Paganini conjures as much myth as history for musicians and violinists.  Portraits reveal a gaunt, ghostly man, and much of the music he composed asks for seemingly impossible feats of time and distance.  Join violinist Benjamin Sung for a performance of Paganini's Opus 1: the 24 Caprices for violin solo.  Taken together, these works are a testament to the potential of human achievement - in creativity, in expression, in technique, and in art.

Professor Waldeck will describe recent studies that investigate the effects of electron spin in electron transfer and electron initiated chemical reactions of supramolecular assemblies and at electrodes. Charge polarization and charge transfer in chiral molecules and assemblies is accompanied by spin polarization and spin transfer, because of the chiral induced spin selectivity (CISS) effect. In the first part of the talk, he will describe the discovery of CISS 1999 and trace our understanding of its basic features through an exposition of key experiments.
