|The Patch Club: A 1920s Speakeasy Event|
|Dates:||Friday, October 28, 2016|
|Title:||The Patch Club: A 1920s Speakeasy Event|
|Description:||The community is invited to take a step back in time to the Roaring Twenties for a fun evening of music, dinner theatre, food and drinks at The Patch Club: A 1920s Speakeasy Event on Fri., Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. at The Casino at Lakemont. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Home Nursing Agency Healing Patch children’s grief program.
Just like the Prohibition-era speakeasies, attendees will be given a password to get into this unique event, where they will enjoy an interactive mystery dinner theatre and music by Tommy Wareham and the Intrigues. Tickets are $50 each with a cash bar. Ticket buyers can also take advantage of the “Speakeasy Special” to fill a table of eight for the price of seven tickets.
“The Patch Club definitely offers something NEW: a unique evening of speakeasy-style support for an equally unique program to benefit grieving children and their families,” share Jeanie Geist, Patch Club planning committee member. “Even the gangsters of the 20s had a soft spot for kids. Get your tickets and password and be ready for a rip-roaring good time, 1920s-style: speakeasy atmosphere, hot jazz, prohibition-era food and drink, complete with a mystery twist!"
Tickets are available online at www.homenursingagency.com or can be purchased by calling the HNA Foundation at 1-855-GIVE-HNA (1-855-448-3462).

|Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra|
|Dates:||Friday, October 28, 2016|
|Title:||Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra|
|Description:||Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, which last performed at Penn State in 2008, returns for its fourth United States tour—this time under the baton of Music and Artistic Director Jacek Kaspszyk. The orchestra, “a highlight of the year. … one of the best-kept secrets in the business” (Los Angeles Times), gave its first concert in 1901 and has performed on five continents.
Kaspszyk, a graduate of Warsaw Academy of Music, has been at the helm of the orchestra since 2013. In addition to his leadership of the Warsaw Philharmonic, Kaspszyk has guest conducted the Berlin, New York, London, Royal, and Prague philharmonics plus other prestigious orchestras throughout the world.
Seong-Jin Cho, who won the seventeenth Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw in 2015, makes his U.S. touring debut in autumn 2016. The Seoul, South Korea, native, still in his early 20s, has also earned major prizes in Russia and Japan. The pianist, who has lived in Paris since 2012, recently signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon. “Cho has an enviable ability to make every note sound distinct and clear, shaping and balancing each phrase perfectly,” writes a reviewer for the classical music website Bachtrack.
Cho joins the orchestra to perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37. The orchestra program also includes Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s Polish Melodies Op. 47, No. 2, and Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68. |
