Postcards of Centre County
Dates:Sunday, February 26, 2017
Title:Postcards of Centre County
Description:Postcards of Centre County From the CCHS Cannon Collection Presented by: Monty Christiansen Elizabeth Cannon of State College donated her collection of 844 picture postcards to the CCHS, dating from 1900 to 1965, from all the towns and villages of Centre County. This presentation will explain how to “read” the full story these vintage postcards tell about these places, with illustrations of communities and people in past years, revealing historic information and insightful thoughts of early postcard correspondents. Centre County Historical Society volunteer Monty Christiansen spent nearly three years cataloging this collection. He was amazed to find county history disclosed on both sides of these postcards.

Parking is available in the lower lawn along College Avenue, as well as in the Mansion parking lot off of Porter Road. Admission to the program is FREE. Donations are appreciated.

Brooklyn Babylon
Dates:Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Title:Brooklyn Babylon
Description:Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society is one of the most admired ensembles in contemporary jazz. The band has toured in Europe, Brazil, and North America; been featured twice at the Newport Jazz Festival; and topped the Big Band category in the 2015 DownBeat Critics Poll. Weaving progressive jazz, early-American popular styles, Balkan folk music, and the sounds of Brooklyn’s diverse contemporary music scene, Argue creates in the multimedia work Brooklyn Babylon an evocative musical narrative that’s at once timeless and unlike anything heard before. Brooklyn Babylon was conceived in collaboration with Croatian-born visual artist Danijel Zezelj, whose narrative inspired Argue’s mash-up of musical styles. Zezelj’s artwork, created live on stage, places the action in a larger-than-life, mythic Brooklyn in which past, present, and future coexist. Plans are afoot to construct an immense tower—the tallest in the world—in the heart of the city. Lev Bezdomni, a master carpenter, finds himself torn between his personal ambition and his allegiance to the community when he is commissioned to build a carousel that will crown the skyscraper. It’s an urban fable about an artist torn between his ambition and his connection to the people of his neighborhood. Live music, live painting, and projected animation combine to create a uniquely immersive experience that David Krasnow of public radio’s Studio 360 called “a masterpiece… a new work of originality, power, and beauty.” Performers will also participate in a post-performance discussion with audience members. 7:30 pm Tuesday, February 28, 2017 Eisenhower Auditorium Adult $48 University Park Student $15 18 and Younger $38
Times:7:30PM - 9:30PM

Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra
Dates:Thursday, March 02, 2017
Title:Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra
Description:Hailed as “one of the world’s top Baroque orchestras” by a Gramophone critic, Tafelmusik returns with its latest multimedia work, J. S. Bach: The Circle of Creation. Tafelmusik is German for “table music” or “music for the feast.” It’s an apt moniker for Toronto’s Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, which has produced a feast of firsts and bests in the music world. The award-winning ensemble, created in 1979, performs historically informed musical experiences on period instruments. Through extensive tours, renowned recordings, television broadcasts, and new media initiatives, Tafelmusik is one of the most prolific orchestras on the planet. The orchestra’s independent music label, Tafelmusik Media, features new digital, live performance, and studio CD and DVD recordings. It also re-releases previous Tafelmusik recordings from Sony Classical and CBC Records. “When the big names of the Baroque era composed their masterpieces 300 years ago, they must have dreamed about their hits sounding this good,” writes a reviewer for The Royal Gazette. “Tafelmusik was a time machine last night, sweeping the audience out of its seats and back to that magic period between 1650 and 1750.” Tafelmusik performs its most recent creation by the orchestra’s double bassist Alison Mackay. Using text, music, and projected video and images, J. S. Bach: The Circle of Creation explores the world of the artisans—performers, papermakers, violin carvers, and string spinners—who aided Bach in realizing his genius. Tafelmusik musicians perform the all-Bach program from memory. Like its predecessors, House of Dreams and The Galileo Project: Music of the Spheres, which Tafelmusik performed at Penn State in 2013 and 2014, respectively, The Circle of Creation invigorates the concert experience. “In these hands,” writes a reviewer for The Globe and Mail of Toronto, “Bach’s music feels more alive than ever.” 7:30 pm Thursday, March 2, 2017 Schwab Auditorium Adult $42 University Park Student $15 18 and Younger $32
Times:7:30PM - 9:30PM
