Cecile McLorin Salvant
Dates:Thursday, September 14, 2017
Title:Cecile McLorin Salvant
Description:Cécile McLorin Salvant, whose For One to Love earned the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album, is “the finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade,” writes a New York Times critic. Wynton Marsalis is convinced of her greatness. “She has poise, elegance, soul, humor, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace,” he says of the singer, who has been thrilling listeners across America and Europe since she won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition in 2010. McLorin Salvant—who is fascinated by the history of American music and the connections among jazz, vaudeville, blues, and folk—meticulously selects her repertoire. She’s known for unearthing rarely recorded gems that tell powerful stories. “I’ve never heard a singer of her generation who has such a command of styles ranging from Bessie Smith to Betty Carter,” says pianist and composer Aaron Diehl. “To have an artist with such a handle on jazz vocabulary while being extremely expressive and soulful, that’s very rare.” She will perform with her band—piano, bass, and drums—in concert at Schwab Auditorium.

Tri-Service POW/MIA Vigil
Dates:Friday, September 15, 2017
Title:Tri-Service POW/MIA Vigil
Description:This event is held every year on the Old Main Lawn and it is the Tri-Service ROTC Prisoner of War and Missing in Action (POW/MIA) Vigil. This event is hosted every year by Penn State’s chapter of the Arnold air society (AAS), better known as the Harry R. Armstrong Squadron. This is a professional, honorary, and service organization advocating the support of aerospace power. To give you a better understanding of the organization, the Arnold Air Society started at the University of Cincinnati in the year 1947 as an extracurricular for Cadets. The name "Arnold Air Society", was in honor of the Air Force's ONLY 5-Star General at the time, Henry "Hap" Arnold. The Arnold Air Society is affiliated with the Air Force Association (AFA), which is an Air Force magazine that informs and connects service members from all levels about what is going on in the community. That being said, the organization is very prestigious because it has high standards and values when it comes to volunteering and paying tribute to those who have served before us. This background is important to know because it is what has molded Penn State’s chapter of the organization to do more for the community. Just last year, the POW/MIA Vigil lasted around 30-40 minutes. Basically, this event recognizes those veterans who fell victim to imprisonment during war and those who went missing without a trace in the line of action. In the past, there has been a missing man table with honor guard for 24 hours, as well as various speakers and even some performances by Air Force ROTC’s very own a capella group, "The Wild Blue Younders", (which I myself am a member). Having said that, let me make clear that this vigil is not only an Arnold Air Society effort, or an Air Force ROTC effort. It is a Tri-Service effort from all of the ROTC branches at Penn State. I am simply a Public Affairs officer trying to get the word out. Each year over 200 Cadets and Midshipmen have been in attendance in addition to all of those who paid tribute from the State College community. The event has turned out to be very successful in the last couple of years, but we could always use the help to make it better! The Harry R. Armstrong Squadron has had help from Penn State’s Social Media Manager who scheduled various Tweets to raise awareness about the event. The squadron was also able to have a live “On Air” interview at The Lion 90.7 FM where they recording a public service announcement, which turned out to be very influential. These public affairs projects paired with a couple breathtaking newspaper articles seemed to have been the determining point in what basically allowed the community to realize what we were honoring through this event. Last year turned out to be an amazing vigil and I say that because not only did the community react in a positive way, the area and even the nation took notice. Granting the squadron awards for its POW/MIA Vigil, the Harry R. Armstrong Squadron received an area level award at the University of Virginia for its public affairs efforts in regards to the vigil and furthermore received a national level award at Disney World for “Best Support of a POW Awareness Program.” We take great pride in this vigil because it means so much! It is a very humbling experience and we would like to share that with all that care to pay tribute. That being said, we would like to invite you to the vigil and furthermore, we would like to ask for your help by letting the community know about this award-winning event that honors those who are gone but never forgotten. The Vigil will take place on September 15, 2017 at 4:00pm. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Very Respectfully, JOSHUA MALDONADO-SANTIAGO, C/Capt, AFROTC Executive Officer 720th Air Force ROTC Detachment The Pennsylvania State University Phone: (215)436-4718 JOSHUA MALDONADO-SANTIAGO, C/First Lt, AAS Harry R.

This new stage by itself is enough to amaze the most demanding audience, and synchronized with the most creative display of superhuman talent - the result is simply out of this world! The latest trends of the industry are challenged with every Cirque Italia appearance and this 2nd unit is not going to be any different. A careful casting selection has united the best artists from all over the world. This production will feature acts all the way from Russia to Mexico. Cirque Italia believes in multi-culturalism as one of our strongest assets. Packed full of incredible acts, there is no room for boredom. The variety presented is exceptional. For those who enjoy smart and well-thought out comedy, Alex the clown thrills while taking an acrobatic journey on the trampoline. Our Argentinian twin jugglers (with a Guinness World Record in their pockets) can handle all kinds of objects in the air, even fire! There is almost no bodily limit for our contortionist as she bends in ways you never would have imagined. She makes it seem so natural, you might end up trying it in yoga class. Whether it’s a futuristic laser act or mesmerizing aerial performances, the show has something for all tastes and expectations. One thing Cirque Italia sets out to accomplish is to create a type of world-class entertainment suitable for all age groups. This new second unit also follows the same strict animal-free policy that makes the Water Circus stand out from other circus entertainment shows. The “magic touch” of the Italian entrepreneur Manuel Rebecchi, President and Owner of Cirque Italia, added to the flawless direction of the COO, Chanté DeMoustes, and has turned this once romantic project into a successful production known and acclaimed all over the country. Don’t miss the opportunity to be amazed and transported to a fantastic realm where your deepest dreams can -and will- come true.

Flip FabriQue: Catch Me!
Dates:Wednesday, October 11, 2017
Title:Flip FabriQue: Catch Me!
Description: Montreal, the fertile crescent of contemporary circus, has done it again. Flip FabriQue, the newest gravity-defying sensation from Quebec, will make its Center for the Performing Arts premiere in Catch Me!, a celebration of fun and friendship. “The young members of Flip FabriQue claim to be French Canadian,” writes a New York Times critic, “but after watching them perform, you may suspect that they hail from a different planet. … This troupe offers acts that don’t seem humanly possible, like walking up a building face. … In a signature act, ‘Trampowall,’ members of the group place a trampoline in front of it, bounce forcefully on their backs to a great height and then, with the help of momentum and what must be terrific shoes, walk the remaining few steps up its surface to cavort on a rooflike shelf.” Catch Me! finds friends coming together after a decade to spend a weekend at a country cottage. “For Flip FabriQue, the stage is a playground where high-level acrobatics and parkour are the natural vocabulary,” writes a reviewer for Scotland’s ThreeWeeksEdinburgh.com. “In a nonchalant way, with their casual clothes and childlike energy, these six performers show off incredible trick after incredible trick … . But it’s not just acrobatics; it’s their inventiveness and charisma. The show … opens the door to some sweet nostalgia, playfulness, and jokes that weave the acts together … .” Flip FabriQue’s performers, a woman and five men, met while students at the Quebec Circus School. Catch Me! grew out of their reunion years later. Each of the artists is a veteran of Cirque du Soleil productions. Three also have been members of Center for the Performing Arts favorite Cirque Éloize. “This is absolute world class circus craft. There is so much joie de vivre on stage you’ll walk out buzzing. An utterly phenomenal show,” raves a critic for EdinburghGuide.com.

Lila Downs
Dates:Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Title:Lila Downs
Description: One of the world’s most singular voices, Lila Downs’ poignant storytelling goes beyond borders. Raised in Minnesota and Oaxaca, Mexico, the global superstar’s artistry bridges traditions from across the Americas. Winner of a Grammy and four Latin Grammys, Downs has been influenced by the folk and ranchera music of Mexico and South America, as well as North American folk, jazz, blues, and hip-hop. As a passionate human-rights activist, she often highlights issues in her lyrics that relate to social justice. “The Mexican American singer has a stunning voice, a confident multicultural vision grounded in her Mixtec Indian roots,” writes a Los Angeles Times reviewer. “Ms. Downs has multiple voices, from an airborne near-falsetto down to a forthright alto and a sultry, emotive contralto,” adds a writer for The New York Times. An NPR reporter describes Downs’ June 2017 release — Salón, Lágrimas y Deseo — as “a mix of traditional Mexican genres with a feminist beat.” “On 2015’s Latin Grammy-winning Balas y Chocolat, Lila Downs delivered an album of folk songs and originals that juxtaposed modern Mexico with its rich history,” writes a reviewer for AllMusic.com. “Its songs highlighted the impact of the drug war, environmental devastation, and the widening rift between economic classes in Mexico. Downs believes an artist’s role is not only to create but to be an activist. Salón, Lágrimas y Deseo is in many ways an extension of Balas y Chocolat, though its emphasis is different. Here Downs employs classic and original songs to deliver a feminist manifesto … .” Downs has performed at many of the world’s most prestigious festivals and venues, including Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Hollywood Bowl. She sang at the White House and on the telecast of the seventy-fifth Academy Awards. “Fluency in Spanish isn’t necessary to understand Lila Downs’ shape-shifting voice,” writes a critic for the Associated Press. “It transcends language, carrying pure emotion. Downs moves from operatic stylings to rap and everything in between, with both artistic exploration and pop sensibility.” Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance. Instead, plans are being made for an alternative that focuses on the singer's native Mexico and the many cultures within it.

Cybersecurity for Small Businesses
Dates:Thursday, October 19, 2017
Title:Cybersecurity for Small Businesses
Description:Cyber-attacks targeting businesses with fewer than 250 employees have steadily increased over the last five years, according to the cybersecurity firm Symantec. In 2015, 43 percent of all attacks targeted small businesses, up from 34 percent the previous year. Research by the National Cyber Security Alliance indicates that within six months of a cyber-attack, 60 percent of small companies go out of business. Cyber threats are becoming more difficult to anticipate and control just as businesses are becoming more dependent on digital resources such as the web, social media, and eCommerce. In addition, new frontiers, such as cloud computing and bring your own device (BYOD), increase complexity. Increasing cybersecurity begins with an awareness that obscurity is no longer a feasible defense to advanced techniques, such as watering hole attacks, spear-phishing, and ransomware. This seminar will use case-based learning and scenarios to increase awareness of cybersecurity threats, as well as provide tips and recommendations to reduce vulnerability.

A GENTLEMAN`S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER
Dates:Thursday, October 19, 2017
Title:A GENTLEMAN`S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER
Description:Eisenhower Auditorium - University Park Getting away with murder can be so much fun. And there’s no better proof than the knock-’em-dead hit show that’s earned unanimous raves and won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical—A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER. Coming direct from New York City, where a most gentlemanly NPR critic says he’s “never laughed so hard at a Broadway musical,” GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by—you guessed it—eliminating the eight pesky relatives (all played by one fearless man) who stand in his way. All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance—and be done in time for tea. The Hollywood Reporter raves, “GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE restores our faith in musical comedy.” The New York Times cheers, “It will lift the hearts of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form.”

Dawn Upshaw, Gilbert Kalish, So Percussion
Dates:Tuesday, October 24, 2017
Title:Dawn Upshaw, Gilbert Kalish, So Percussion
Description:Dawn Upshaw, a five-time Grammy Award-winning soprano, and Gilbert Kalish, a celebrated pianist and her frequent collaborator, join forces with So Percussion, a quartet at the forefront of American musical culture. The program features a new work, written for these artists and co-commissioned by the Center for the Performing Arts, by composer Caroline Shaw, who performed with Roomful of Teeth last season at Schwab Auditorium. The program also includes George Crumb’s song cycle The Winds of Destiny, which recasts nine songs and spirituals from the Civil War era as dramatic monologues. Both Shaw and Crumb are Pulitzer Prize winners. Upshaw enjoys international celebrity as a singer of opera and concert repertoire ranging from the sacred works of J. S. Bach to the freshest sounds of today. Her ability to reach to the heart of music and text has gained her the devotion of a diverse audience. Upshaw’s most recent Grammy, in 2014, was for Best Classical Vocal Solo for Maria Schneider’s Winter Morning Walks. Kalish, pianist of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players for three decades, has a discography of more than 100 recordings embracing both classical and contemporary repertoire. A distinguished professor at the State University of New York Stony Brook, Kalish has been an artist of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center since 2006. So Percussion is a flexible, omnivorous entity. A writer for The New Yorker describes the music of Eric Cha-Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, and Jason Treuting as an “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam.” The quartet’s adventurous spirit was passed down from composers like John Cage and Steve Reich, plus pioneering ensembles such as Kronos Quartet and Nexus Percussion. The ensemble’s career includes more than twenty albums, tours throughout America and the world, an array of collaborative projects, several educational programs, and a steady output of original works. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance. Shaw and some of the performers are scheduled to engage with the audience after the concert.

Straight Outta Philly
Dates:Friday, October 27, 2017
Title:Straight Outta Philly
Description:Eisenhower Auditorium - Center for the Performing Arts Two of Philadelphia’s most spectacular movement companies come together to communicate social and political ideas through hip-hop and contemporary dance in Straight Outta Philly. “The evening had a wonderful flow,” writes a reviewer for The Philadelphia Tribune, “alternating between the hardcore, mind-blowing pace of the street dancers, to the controlled emotion and dynamic precision of the contemporary artists … . For the shared experience of the pure joy of dance, it doesn’t get any better than Philadanco and Rennie Harris Puremovement.” Nuttin’ But a Word!!!, choreographed by Harris and performed by his company, takes its title from an African-American expression about someone’s words being hollow. A Movement for Five, choreographed by Dawn Marie Bazemore and performed by Philadanco, was inspired by the case of five New York City boys wrongly accused of a serious crime. A Day in the Life, created by Harris and performed by two male dancers, is excerpted from a suite of works suggested by the choreographer’s “personal abuse and my current and past state of consciousness politically, socially, and economically.” Folded Prism, choreographed by Thang Dao, finds Philadanco evoking “a dreamlike state where the dancers seemed to move as flawless, pristine bodies,” observes a critic for The Dance Journal. The companies unite for the finale, Philadelphia Experiment, choreographed by Harris and danced before a backdrop of images reflecting the history and energy of the City of Brotherly Love. “Philadelphia Experiment offered both a celebration of Philadelphia’s culture and a defiant stand against its social shortcomings,” notes the Journal writer. “… With the supremely talented, highly trained contemporary dancers out of their theatrical garb and dancing side-by-side with RHPM’s hip-hop dancers, it was impossible not to compare and contrast,” writes the Tribune critic. “While the street dancers danced ‘down in the floor’ with total abandon, the contemporary dancers instinctively ‘pulled up’ and made it look pretty. It was an interesting juxtaposition, and watching them ‘battle’ was absolutely thrilling.”

Description:One fateful night, Brad Majors and his fiancée, Janet Weiss — a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love — innocently set out to visit an old professor.

A thunderstorm and a flat-tire force them to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank ’N’ Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. Brad, Janet, and Frank’ N’ Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment. The night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other, love, and lust. A loving homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock’n’roll score, The Rocky Horror Show is a hilarious, wild ride that no audience will soon forget. This is a fundraiser for CAST, raising money for a new roof. This production is intended for mature audiences.

Homebrew Sunday—All Grain
Dates:Sunday, October 29, 2017
Title:Homebrew Sunday—All Grain
Description:Class at the Barn at Lemon making craft beer. This month’s all grain beer might sound a little strange, but we’re all about experimenting with seasonal ingredients. Our Sun-Dried Tomato Dark Strong starts with a carmely base from the dark malts, hints of dark fruit and raisin but finishes with a subtle tomato earthiness and sweetness. The dried cherry tomatoes retain a lot of their percieved sweetness and become raisiny and prune-like when dried, the same way grapes do when dried. This flavor should blend perfectly with our Flander’s golden ale yeast strain. Come join us in brewing a truly unique beer and help bottle our experimental Milkshake IPA from last month’s brew.

Title:Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott
Description:Eisenhower Auditorium - Center for the Performing Arts 814-863-0255 Cellist Yo-Yo Ma will appear at Penn State for only the third time when he performs in concert with pianist Kathryn Stott. Ma, whose career is defined by an insatiable desire to find musical connections across cultures, and Stott, a fixture on the international music scene for decades, have performed together for more than thirty years. Their collaborations include two Grammy Award-winning albums, Obrigado Brazil and Obrigado Brazil–Live in Concert. The pair’s most recent album is 2015’s Songs from the Arc of Life. “When it comes to artistic partnerships, there’s a lot to be said for the fireworks of musicians joining together for the first time,” writes an NPR critic. “But there’s another kind of collaboration that can yield profound pleasure: a recording with two artists who know each other deeply, in a relationship that has unfolded over years and even decades. That’s the case with world-famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott, who have been playing together since 1984. Over those many years, they’ve developed a wonderfully warm and mutually responsive musical partnership that has blossomed in performances that are both generous and incisive.” Ma’s discography includes more than 100 albums. Eighteen have earned Grammys. His most recent, Bach Trios, came out in May and is a collaboration with bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile. Sing Me Home, his 2016 recording with the Silk Road Ensemble, is a companion to the documentary film The Music of Strangers. Stott has performed globally as a soloist and a chamber musician since 1978, when she was a prize winner at the Leeds International Piano Competition. She is an exponent of tango and other Latin dance music. Her most recent solo release, Solitaires, explores French works for piano. She was recently appointed artistic director of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance.

Featuring an ensemble of thirteen world-class musicians and vocalists, the orchestra performs a musically precise, fresh, and exciting take on salsa. “The best thing at the Newport Jazz Festival was the Spanish Harlem Orchestra,” raves a critic for The New York Times. “They make you get up and dance, tap into the good-natured, communal spirit characteristic of salsa at its timeless best,” writes a Los Angeles Times reviewer. SHO, as the band is known to its fans, is dedicated to the sounds of the barrio. Its music is characterized by the raw, organic, and vintage soul of the genre. The band’s fifth album, Spanish Harlem Orchestra (2017), features guests Chick Corea and Joe Lovano. Each of the band’s previous recordings earned a Grammy nomination, with wins for Across 110th Street (2004) and United We Swing (2007). “Spanish Harlem Orchestra will be a bounty for both wallflowers and hipshakers,” writes a reporter for Time Out New York.
