Sergei Prokofiev

CANCELLED.  SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

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.

For Peter and the Wolf, The KW Woodwind Quintet will be joined by narrator by Mark Vuorinen. In addition, the quintet will perform Mozart's Variations on Ah! Vous dirai-je, Maman (known to many as Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star) and and excerpt of Mozart's Horn Concerto in F, played on a garden hose.

Wendy Wagler (flute), Sarah Cardwell (oboe), Barbara Hankins (clarinet), Heather Carruthers (bassoon), Trevor Wagler (horn).  Suitable for all ages, perfect for a March Break event.

Invitation to Fretz lecture featuring an old book

"Where Moth and Rust Destroy: Archives and the Contest over Anabaptist Information"

Archives 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.
