Ballet Hispanico
Dates:Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Title:Ballet Hispanico
Description:Ballet Hispánico 7:30 pm Wednesday, October 17, 2018 Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State “Ballet Hispánico’s artistic director Eduardo Vilaro has said that the troupe’s title notwithstanding, the company is ‘a new envisioning of American modern dance,’” writes a Boston Globe critic. “It’s an intriguing idea, particularly since a main mission of the New York-based group is to present dance through a Latino lens.” In its first appearance at Eisenhower Auditorium since 1993, Ballet Hispánico’s lens will focus solely on dances by Latina choreographers. Founded in 1970 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan by Tina Ramirez, Ballet Hispánico has become a catalyst for bringing communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures from around the world. The company of fifteen, representing a number of nationalities, brings to the stage training in modern and classical dance plus ballet. The Cuban-born Vilaro, a former Ballet Hispánico dancer, has since 2009 infused the company with a vision of social equality, cultural identity, and quality arts education. “Ballet Hispánico has been a gem of the New York dance scene for years, and, in their season premiere at the Joyce Theater [in April], the company proved as strong as ever,” writes a Village Voice reviewer. “Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro gives his troupe … opportunities to work with choreographers from around the world, producing contemporary works of bold technique that illuminate concerns of Latino/a identity and resiliency.” Following the performance, Ballet Hispánico artists will participate in a discussion with audience members.

A Newsweek writer suggests that “for a wholly original take on big band’s past, present, and future, look to Darcy James Argue.” The Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based composer and bandleader made headlines with the release of Secret Society’s Infernal Machines (2009), which along with Brooklyn Babylon (2013) and Real Enemies (2016) was nominated for a Grammy Award. A New York Times critic praises the most recent album as “wildly discursive, twitchily allusive, a work of furious ambition … deeply in tune with our present moment.” A London Jazz News writer calls the release “a mind-blowing example of truly great, era-defining jazz composition, and a contender for album of the year.” Secret Society tours throughout North America, Europe, and South America. The eighteen-member band has also performed four times at the Newport Jazz Festival. Adult $48 University Park Student $15 18 and Younger $38

Climate Change Progress: the Untold Story

Title:Climate Change Progress: the Untold Story

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.

Audience members might just find that a bug’s life is not all that different from their own. “The raucous, joyous show rapping spiritedly at Dallas Children’s Theater offers an intoxicating mix of educational and entertainment fare …,” writes a Dallas Morning News reviewer. “It’s a memorable biology lesson and uplifting message for kids seeking their own special role in the world.” The National Endowment for the Arts designated Dallas Children’s Theater, named by Time as one of the top five children’s theatre companies in the United States, as an American Masterpieces Touring Artist.

John Mauceri, a mentee and conducting fellow with Bernstein, and Isabel Leonard, a mezzo-soprano applauded for her interpretations of Bernstein repertoire, join the Czech National Symphony Orchestra in a concert commemorating the centennial of Bernstein’s birth. The program of Bernstein compositions includes meditations from Mass, symphonic dances from West Side Story, vocal selections from the cycle of American poems Songfest and the opera A Quiet Place, the overture from the operetta Candide, and more. The distinguished and varied career of Mauceri has taken him not only to the world’s greatest opera companies and symphony orchestras, but also to the musical stages of Broadway and Hollywood. He has won Grammy, Tony, Olivier, Drama Desk, Emmy, Billboard, and other noteworthy awards. Mauceri was, in turn, the music director of Pittsburgh Opera, Teatro Regio (Turin, Italy), Scottish Opera (Glasgow), and Washington (D.C.) Opera. He was the founding director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, where he conducted more than 300 concerts attended by a total of four million people. Mauceri conducted the world premiere of Bernstein’s A Quiet Place. From 2006–2013, he was the chancellor of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Grammy winner Leonard thrills listeners in both opera houses and on concert stages. She has performed with many of the finest opera companies, including the Metropolitan Opera, Vienna State Opera, Paris Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and San Francisco Opera. She has worked with famous conductors in appearances with the Cleveland, Chicago Symphony, and Boston Symphony orchestras plus the New York, Los Angeles, and Vienna philharmonics.

Chronic Pain Management Symposium
Dates:Thursday, March 28, 2019
Title:Chronic Pain Management Symposium
Description:While we are making some progress in the recent years, the opioid epidemic continues to show staggering statistics every day across the country. We battle every day to help patients with their pain, while doing our best to keep them safe. Our goal is always to focus on evidence based new therapies, but this is not always the solution for some patients. Because of the varying needs of our patients and the goal to keep the community safe while treating chronic pain, we feel that a comprehensive and integrated pain program is the future of treatment for this condition. This cannot be achieved by one practice alone. This must be achieved through education and networking of all health care professionals involved in the care of pain patients in our communities. It is with this in mind that we are planning the first Chronic Pain Management Symposium focused on bringing health care professionals from our community together to discuss the many pathways to achieve pain control for the people of our communities. We hope that you will consider joining us on March 28th, 2019 at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown’s Living and Learning Center from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. It is with the support of all health care professionals who care for the patients suffering from chronic pain that we will do our part in reducing the impact of the crisis we are facing.

Dreamers` Circus
Dates:Wednesday, April 03, 2019
Title:Dreamers` Circus
Description:Last season, a Schwab Auditorium crowd responded enthusiastically to the Danish String Quartet’s performance of classical music. But audience members got especially excited when violinist Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen led the foursome in arrangements of half a dozen Nordic folk tunes. Sørensen returns to Schwab this season with Dreamers’ Circus, a trio that draws inspiration from the traditions of Nordic folk songs and reshapes them into something bright, shiny, and new. In 2009, Sørensen and Ale Carr, who plays the Nordic cittern, were in a Copenhagen, Denmark, pub jamming together on some folk tunes. In came Nikolaj Busk, who sat down at the piano and began playing along. The three wound up performing together all night, and Dreamers’ Circus was born. The musicians display inventiveness in their approach to music from Denmark, Sweden, and Iceland plus the far reaches of Greenland and the Faroe Islands. The ensemble, which makes its North American debut on this tour, has won five Danish Folk Music Awards and has toured across Europe, Japan, and Australia. The players, two Danes and a Swede, view their roots as a point of departure, not a straightjacket. This adventurous attitude, coupled with outstanding musicianship, has brought the trio to the forefront of the Nordic folk and world music scenes.

Hoops for Heavenly Heroes Basketball Event
Dates:Sunday, May 12, 2019
Title:Hoops for Heavenly Heroes Basketball Event
Description:On Sunday, May 12, there will be a Hoops for Heavenly Heroes 3-on-3 Charity Basketball Tournament at Juniata College. We are extremely excited about this event and hope we can get as many kids and adults from as many local communities/counties as possible to participate. Proceeds from the event will be given to two families from Huntingdon. The Huntingdon community and school district, as well as the Juniata College community, lost two very special individuals. Earlier this year, Peter Rubincam, a volunteer volleyball coach at Huntingdon Area Middle School lost a courageous battle with cancer. A few weeks ago, Dave Aurand, a former Huntingdon Area High School basketball player and a graduate of the class of 1977, as well as the equipment manager at Juniata College, passed away unexpectedly. Both of these gentlemen impacted the lives of many community members and athletes/coaches in the Huntingdon School District & Juniata College communities. We would love to do all we can to give a little back to their respective families. Both of these men dedicated endless hours to work with and help many children, young adults, and student-athletes. They both were extremely selfless, caring, and thoughtful individuals who gave of their time and never ever asked for anything in return. This is the time that we are looking to give a little back to them. We also have invited members of Peter and Dave's family to attend this year's event. Let's do all we can to spread the word and to try and get as many people to participate. This day is all for Peter and Dave!
