Climate Change Progress: the Untold Story
Dates:Sunday, October 28, 2018
Title:Climate Change Progress: the Untold Story
Description:Presentation: D.C. climate lobbyist to share signs of progress in Congress STATE COLLEGE, PA – Daniel Richter, vice president for government affairs at Citizens’ Climate Lobby, will speak on the topic: “Progress on Climate Change in DC: The Untold Story,” at 3 p.m., Sunday, October 28 in the Community Room of the State College Borough Building, 243 South Allen Street. Dr. Richter’s talk, sponsored by the State College chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, is free and open to the public. “Danny Richter knows more about Congressional attitudes toward pricing carbon than anyone I know of,” says Sylvia Neely, group leader for the State College chapter of CCL. “We are delighted that he is coming from Washington to speak. With the election season in full swing, we encourage anyone with an interest in how Congress actually works to attend this talk.” Dr. Richter joined CCL in 2013 and established its Washington, D.C. office. He is responsible for CCL’s legislative strategy and for clarifying the details of CCL’s policies. He also has overseen CCL’s research policy leading to several studies on the environmental and economic impacts of the organization’s signature legislative initiative: carbon fee and dividend. “I came to work on climate by way of medicine,” Dr. Richter says. “Realizing the potential for a warming world to make lots of people sick, I figured the best thing I could do for the most people was to prevent the warming in the first place.” That led him to pursue a Ph.D. from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. There he explored, on all seven continents, past warming and cooling trends to see what could be learned to counter current human-caused warming. His master’s degree in geosciences was earned at the University of California-San Diego and his bachelor’s degree is from the University of Notre Dame. After his talk in State College, Dr. Richter will travel to Huntingdon where he will speak to classes and student gatherings at Juniata College on Monday, Oct. 29.

Escher String Quartet
Dates:Tuesday, October 30, 2018
Title:Escher String Quartet
Description:Escher String Quartet Gilles Vonsattel, pianist 7:30 pm Tuesday, October 30, 2018 Schwab Auditorium Escher String Quartet—an ensemble championed by Emerson String Quartet, Itzhak Perlman, and Pinchas Zukerman—makes its Penn State debut in a program featuring Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23. Pianist Gilles Vonsattel joins the quartet to perform the world premiere of a work, co-commissioned by the Center for the Performing Arts through its membership in the Music Accord consortium, by San Francisco-born composer Anthony Cheung. The five musicians also perform Brahms’ Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34. The Escher ensemble, formed in 2005, has earned applause for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet is one of the few chamber ensembles to win the Avery Fisher Career Grant. The quartet has performed with a number of classical music luminaries, but it also has collaborated with jazz artists such as Joshua Redman, Kurt Elling, and Paquito D’Rivera. In its hometown of New York City, the quartet serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The ensemble—violinists Adam Barnett-Hart and Danbi Um, violist Pierre Lapointe, and cellist Brook Speltz—is also quartet in residence at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Vonsattel, winner of the Naumburg and Geneva piano competitions, is a musician of versatility and originality. The Swiss-born American artist, who displays a sense of adventure and musical curiosity, performs an enormous range of repertoire. An Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient, Vonsattel in recent years has made his Boston Symphony, Tanglewood, and San Francisco Symphony debuts. A New York Times critic describes his most recent New York City recital as “tightly conceived and passionately performed … a study in intensity.” Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance, but artists will engage in a conversation with audience members after the concert.
