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.

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!

Penn State Wine Appreciation Class
Dates:Thursday, August 29, 2019 - Thursday, December 12, 2019
Title:Penn State Wine Appreciation Class
Description:Local wine lovers are invited to learn more about viniculture, viticulture and the sensory evaluation of wine in Penn State’s Fall 2019 Wine Appreciation course. “This course concentrates on the sensory elements of wine and with emphasis on Old World and New World traditions, food pairing, and the practice of responsible tasting,” said Donna Quadri-Felitti, PhD, Marvin Ashner Director and Associate Professor, School of Hospitality Management. Paul Woolley, Penns Valley resident who participated in the spring semester course, said, “It’s a broad survey with a significant amount of depth. It is a comprehensive class for anyone wanting to learn about wine, particularly the viniculture (making of wine) and viticulture (cultivation and harvesting).” He added that one of the best features of the course is that both instructors strongly encourage participation and notes, “Anyone who takes this class will have much better understanding about wines and how to better enjoy them.” Class meets every Thursday of the fall semester from 4:35 p.m. - 6:30 p.m., beginning August 29, 2019 with the final class on December 12, 2019. All classes are held in the Keller Building on the Penn State University Park Campus with convenient parking in the Nittany Lion Parking Garage. All participants must be 21 years of age, with valid photo identification. This is a combined course that mixes Penn State students taking the class for credit with adults from the community taking it for non-credit. Non-credits adults have the option to test their learning each week with online quizzes, same as the Penn State students. “The mix of ages and backgrounds enhances each participants’ learning experience, as developing your personal wine palette, preferences and knowledge is best accomplished in a community of like-minded learners who share,” commented instructor, Pat Felitti, a sommelier and former New York City fine-dining restaurateur. Fees are $399 for PSU affiliates or $429 for the general public. In addition to instruction and weekly tasting, all participants receive a one-year free subscription to Wine Spectator. Registration deadline is 11:59 pm, September 4, 2019. To register or for more information, visit our website https://hhd.psu.edu/wine-appreciation.Questions may be directed to Lisa Clapper at 814-865-8898.

Penn State Wine Appreciation Class
Dates:Thursday, August 29, 2019 - Thursday, December 12, 2019
Title:Penn State Wine Appreciation Class
Description:Local wine lovers are invited to learn more about viniculture, viticulture and the sensory evaluation of wine in Penn State’s Fall 2019 Wine Appreciation course. “This course concentrates on the sensory elements of wine and with emphasis on Old World and New World traditions, food pairing, and the practice of responsible tasting,” said Donna Quadri-Felitti, PhD, Marvin Ashner Director and Associate Professor, School of Hospitality Management. Paul Woolley, Penns Valley resident who participated in the spring semester course, said, “It’s a broad survey with a significant amount of depth. It is a comprehensive class for anyone wanting to learn about wine, particularly the viniculture (making of wine) and viticulture (cultivation and harvesting).” He added that one of the best features of the course is that both instructors strongly encourage participation and notes, “Anyone who takes this class will have much better understanding about wines and how to better enjoy them.” Class meets every Thursday of the fall semester from 4:35 p.m. - 6:30 p.m., beginning August 29, 2019 with the final class on December 12, 2019. All classes are held in the Keller Building on the Penn State University Park Campus with convenient parking in the Nittany Lion Parking Garage. All participants must be 21 years of age, with valid photo identification. This is a combined course that mixes Penn State students taking the class for credit with adults from the community taking it for non-credit. Non-credits adults have the option to test their learning each week with online quizzes, same as the Penn State students. “The mix of ages and backgrounds enhances each participants’ learning experience, as developing your personal wine palette, preferences and knowledge is best accomplished in a community of like-minded learners who share,” commented instructor, Pat Felitti, a sommelier and former New York City fine-dining restaurateur. Fees are $399 for PSU affiliates or $429 for the general public. In addition to instruction and weekly tasting, all participants receive a one-year free subscription to Wine Spectator. Registration deadline is 11:59 pm, September 4, 2019.
