Description:Vienna Boys Choir 7:30 pm Tuesday, December 1, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium “Time may march on, but the Vienna Boys Choir remains a rock-solid institution,” writes a reviewer for the Green Bay Press Gazette. No group of child musicians has won more renown. Founded by Emperor Maximilian I in 1498, the incomparable ensemble delights music lovers across the planet with its purity of tone, distinctive charm, and crowd-pleasing repertoire. Dressed in their trademark sailor suits and shiny black shoes, the 10- to 14-year-olds perform Austrian folk songs and waltzes, classical masterpieces, beloved pop songs, holiday favorites, and medieval chant. “I suspect that these two-dozen fresh-scrubbed youths could have charmed the capacity audience had they sung the cars-for-sale ads on Craigslist,” writes a Toronto Star critic. “There’s something irresistible about the rosy cheeks and pure, unbroken treble voices. But there was so much more to the concert than this. These boys … brought along some very impressive musicianship as well as entertainment value.” Buy Tickets: Adult $38 University Park Student $19 18 and Younger $28

Open House/ blessing/dedication
Dates:Sunday, December 06, 2015
Title:Open House/ blessing/dedication
Description:On Dec 6, 2015 at 2:30 Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church is having their gym blessed by the Bishop of the Allegheny Synod at an Open House. The gym will be open to anyone who needs a safe, warm environment in which to exercise. It has been remodeled to include 10 magnetic pictures and their corresponding Bible references of the life of Jesus. The towns where each event in Jesus' life is stenciled on the wall along with the distances between each city. Walkers can track the laps they walk (26 laps to a mile) with bead counters and record their miles. They are encouraged to WALK WITH JESUS. This evolved due to the initial efforts of now retired Pastor Carol Custead. It had been her dream for many years to do something like this. Mt. Calvary received a seed grant from the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America whose headquarters are in Chicago Ill. This is a result of a seed grant program under a health initiative called "Raising Up Healthy Women and Girls". Mt. Calvary is one of 6 churches nationwide to receive this grant and it is the first time any church in the Allegheny Synod has had this honor. Unknown to her Pastor Custead, she will be presented with a plaque of dedication which will be permanently affixed to the wall outside of the gym. There will be healthy snacks and drinks for those attending. Can someone contact me regarding coverage for this?

A Carpenters Christmas
Dates:Tuesday, December 15, 2015
Title:A Carpenters Christmas
Description:Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music. The Carpenters’ beautiful, memorable love songs topped the Billboard charts with more than a dozen number one hits. Now, singer and playwright Lisa Rock has arranged a 6-piece band, complete with back-up singers, and together they are dedicated to creating a Carpenters experience like no other. Rock’s amazing four octave range allows her to sing all the Carpenters hits in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and more recognizable for the audience. “When she hits the lower range of her marvelous voice,” notes Chicago critic Alan Bresloff, “if you close your eyes, you can see Karen Carpenter’s face.” And Rock and her band are now expanding their Carpenters offerings with the very special A Carpenters Christmas show. This amazing holiday concert is a nod to the two Christmas albums the Carpenters made and captures the feel of the classic TV holiday variety shows of the 1970s. It showcases Rock’s amazing vocal talents and recreates the holiday experience the Carpenters made famous. Featuring “Merry Christmas Darling” and the jazzy “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” it’s a holiday concert that spreads joy and cheer to all.

Title:Sybarite5
Description:Sybarite5’s eclectic repertoire and dynamic performance style turns heads throughout the music world. The first string quintet to win the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, Sybarite5 is as comfortable performing contemporary music by Radiohead as it is classics by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. From the moment their bows hit the strings, the talented, diverse musicians take audiences on a ride that engages the senses and redefines the rules. “That impassioned playing, those hard-driving rhythms, the blissed-out faces of the mostly young audience,” observes a Washington Post reviewer, add up to “genuine, spontaneous … excitement.” Formed at the Aspen Music Festival, Sybarite5 includes violinists Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violist Angela Pickett, cellist Laura Metcalf, and bassist Louis Levitt. Disturb the Silence, the group’s debut extended-play disc, features music by Radiohead, Astor Piazzolla, and a pair of original works. The 2011 release soared to the top ten on the Billboard charts. Everything in its Right Place, the 2012 follow-up CD, remixes ten Radiohead songs. “Their rock-star status … is well deserved,” writes a Sarasota Herald Tribune reviewer. “Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all-out passionate attack transfixes the audience.” The New York City quintet’s program will be announced from the stage.

Described as “The Simpsons meets Malcolm X at a Notorious B.I.G. concert,” these lyrical virtuosos, who met at New Jersey’s Rutgers University, merge elements of hip-hop, theatre, improvisation, and stand-up comedy to express insights about the issues of our times. In 2006, the poets won first place and a grant in the Microsoft Idea Wins Challenge. Since then, the group’s approach to the spoken word has landed it on NBC’s Today and on tours of the United States and beyond. The trio’s name is derived from the 1999 film Fight Club, but the poets are language lovers, not fighters. “Their only weapon is words, specifically the snappy, streetwise art known as slam poetry,” writes a New York Times reviewer. “And they deploy it brilliantly … .”

Description:Pianist and composer Billy Childs received a 2015 Grammy nomination for best jazz vocal album for his Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Nyro died before her 50th birthday. But the Bronx-born singer, songwriter, and pianist—whose soulful music was recorded by artists such as Barbra Streisand, The Fifth Dimension, and Three Dog Night—had a significant influence on an array of music makers who followed her. Childs, who’s earned four Grammys and a Guggenheim Fellowship, makes his Center for the Performing Arts debut in a concert featuring music from the Nyro album, which included guest artists Yo-Yo Ma, Esperanza Spalding, Alison Krauss, Shawn Colvin, Chris Botti, Becca Stevens, and others. Stevens, a “Björk-meets-Joni [Mitchell] singer-songwriter” (jazzwisemagazine.com) who performed with pianist Taylor Eigsti in 2010 at Schwab, and Alicia Olatuja, who dazzled millions with her solo during the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir’s rendition of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” at the 2013 presidential inauguration, join Childs for the Schwab Auditorium performance.

VOCES8
Dates:Thursday, February 11, 2016
Title:VOCES8
Description:“A perfect blend of calm contentment and soaring spirit” (London’s The Independent), VOCES8 makes its Penn State debut in an acoustic choral program. Formed in 2003 by former Westminster Abbey choristers, the British octet performs works ranging from Renaissance polyphony to modern jazz and pop arrangements. “The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance,” writes a Gramophone reviewer. “They bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning.” Touring extensively throughout Europe, North America, and Asia, VOCES8 has performed at prominent venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall, St. Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall, Tel Aviv Opera House, and Shanghai Concert Hall. The ensemble has also appeared with the Philharmonia and London Philharmonic orchestras. Eventide, the group’s 2014 release on Decca Classics, was number one on the United Kingdom classical charts for two weeks. Previous releases on Signum Classics include A Choral Tapestry, Bach Motets, Aces High, Christmas, and A Purcell Collection. In 2013, VOCES8 was nominated for seven Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, winning for best classical album and best classical song. “‘Radiant’ and ‘luminous’ are adjectives that are perhaps overused in describing choral sound,” a critic for All Music observes, “but in this case they are fully deserved.”

Windscape
Dates:Thursday, February 18, 2016
Title:Windscape
Description:“For many, the names of the players who make up the woodwind quintet Windscape will have a certain aura—that of the fabulously skilled, much sought-after, and usually footloose New York musician who can tackle anything—repeat, anything,” insists a Boston Globe writer. Created in 1994 by eminent woodwind soloists, Windscape has earned a prominent place for itself as a vibrant, ever-evolving group of musical individualists. The players, who are artists-in-residence at the Manhattan School of Music, even like to call themselves an “unquintet.” The group delights audiences across North America with its novel programs and accompanying presentations, each devised to take listeners on a musical and historical tour evoking cultural landscapes of distant times and places. In its Penn State premiere, Windscape performs an East-meets-West program titled A Floating World: Japan and the Impressionists. The program features works by composers familiar to Western ears—Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, and Olivier Messaien—paired with music by Japanese composers Michio Miyagi and Toru Takemitsu. The musicians perform before projected images of paintings and prints by artists from Europe and Japan. Works by Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, Georges Seurat, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Vincent Van Gogh, and others are juxtaposed—often thematically—with pieces by Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Ando Hiroshige, Kitao Shigemasa, Suzuki Harunobu, Kitagawa Utamaro, Mizuno Toshikata, and others.

Russian National Orchestra
Dates:Thursday, March 03, 2016
Title:Russian National Orchestra
Description:A Los Angeles Times critic calls the Russian National Orchestra, performing at Penn State as part of its twenty-fifth anniversary tour, “one of the world’s great ensembles.” Led since its inception by Artistic Director Mikhail Pletnev, the orchestra is unique among the principal Russian ensembles because it is a private institution funded by individuals, corporations, and foundations. The ensemble, which in 2004 became the first Russian orchestra to earn a Grammy Award, has recorded more than eighty albums and tours throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Ukrainian Kirill Karabits, “an energizing presence on the podium” (The Telegraph of London), guest conducts the orchestra. The United Kingdom’s Royal Philharmonic Society named Karabits conductor of the year in 2013. Stefan Jackiw joins the orchestra to perform Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64. Jackiw, who made his Carnegie Hall debut last season, combines poetry and impeccable technique. “When he plays, it is not all about him, or all about the violin—it is all about the music,” a Boston Globe critic asserts. “He knows what he wants to do with every phrase, and some of it is marked by heart-stopping purity of intent.” The violinist, born in Massachusetts to physicist parents of Korean and German descent, has appeared as a soloist with the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. His playing, writes a reviewer for The Globe and Mail of Toronto, is “as pure and close to perfection as music can get.” The orchestra program also includes Alexander Glazunov’s Prelude to the Suite From the Middle Ages and Pletnev’s arrangement of Sergei Prokofiev’s Suite from Romeo and Juliet.

Title:Arctic Rhythms
Description:xperience the polar regions as never before through the eclectic artistry of composer, author, musician, and 2014 National Geographic Emerging Explorer Paul D. Miller (aka DJ Spooky). Revered in the hip-hop world as a master turntablist, Miller is a sonic artist who hears music in almost everything—from visual forms and economic theory to the great outdoors. In 2007 and 2008, Miller undertook two expeditions to Antarctica to shoot a film and create an acoustic portrait of the rapidly changing continent. That led to his celebrated 2011 publication The Book of Ice and his 2013 album Of Water and Ice. Sponsored by the Sierra Club, Miller traveled to the Arctic Circle in 2014 and came away with the inspiration for another volume of music, Arctic Rhythms. Accompanied at Eisenhower Auditorium by a Penn State School of Music graduate student string quartet, Miller creates an evocative multimedia trip through the Arctic landscape. He juxtaposes images with live and recorded hip-hop, electronic, and minimalist music to create a unique experience. Miller has previously collaborated with an array of musicians, including Metallica, Chuck D, Steve Reich, and Yoko Ono. MIT Press published his award-winning book Rhythm Science in 2004. The Village Voice, The Source, and Artforum have featured his writing, and he’s the editor of Origin Magazine. His work has appeared in the Whitney Biennial, the Venice Biennial for Architecture, Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum, and other museums and galleries throughout the world.

Moscow Festival Ballet The Sleeping Beauty
Dates:Thursday, March 31, 2016
Title:Moscow Festival Ballet The Sleeping Beauty
Description:The Sleeping Beauty, a crowning jewel in the career of choreographer Marius Petipa, is often called the finest achievement of classical ballet. The three-act ballet, which premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1890, moves to a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and takes inspiration from a well-known fairy tale by Charles Perrault. An evil fairy condemns a baby princess to prick her finger and die on her sixteenth birthday. But the Lilac Fairy saves the child by declaring the injury will merely put the princess to sleep until awakened by a prince’s kiss. The Sleeping Beauty is replete with a king and a queen, good and bad fairies, a beautiful princess and a dreamy prince, magical stage effects, courtly splendor, and a storybook kingdom from the realm of the imagination. Moscow Festival Ballet, created in 1989 by Bolshoi Ballet principal dancer Sergei Radchenko, recruits leading dancers from throughout Russia. The company, with Radchenko as artistic director, has toured extensively in Europe and the Far East. This tour of The Sleeping Beauty marks the troupe’s seventh visit to the United States. The company performed Swan Lake at Eisenhower in 2014.

The Big Friendly Giant

Description:In the much-beloved tradition of Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda), we join two misfits on an unforgettable odyssey. For a young orphan “human bean,” the sight of a giant outside her window is terrifying. She fears for her life when he whisks her away to an enchanted land. But this Big Friendly Giant is not like other giants. The job of this larger-than-life vegetarian is to blow magical dreams into children’s bedrooms. Together, they embark on a quest to save England from the “gizzard-gulping” giants who lack the BFG’s tender heart. The cheeky BFG ultimately shows that heroes can come in all sizes. Humongous on humor and large on laughs, the story of the BFG was Dahl’s personal favorite. On stage, his wacky tale comes to life with puppets and people creating a fantastical world of towering giants and magical adventures.

On April 9th from 1pm to 4pm Claire Terese Photography will offer the gift of an individual portrait mini session and a 5x7 portrait in exchange for a minimum $24 donation to Operation Smile. This donation represents one tenth of the $240 needed to help fund a single cleft palate surgery. “Celebration of Smiles Day is the perfect opportunity to have your portrait taken or that of a loved one, because in doing so you are making it possible to truly change the lives of children who would otherwise face a lifetime of pain and rejection.” Said Michigan based photographer and President of Professional Photographers of America, Michael Timmons. Founded in 1982, Operation Smile is a worldwide children’s medical charity dedicated to helping children and young adults born with facial deformities. In as little as 45 minutes, one cleft lip surgery can change a child’s life forever. Every three minutes a child somewhere in the world is born with a facial deformity. One in ten will not survive to see their first birthday. Those who do survive often live in isolation and pain. Each year, more than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity in Operation Smile’s 26 partner countries. Tens of thousands remain untreated. Claire Houser, Owner of Claire Terese Photography has received numerous awards and has been honored nationally for her work with PPA Charities. This will be Claire’s fourth year of participation in this celebration. "Walk ins" for a brief photo session with all proceeds benefiting Operation Smiles are welcome on this day from 1-4pm.  “It’s a great cause that benefits something I’m passionate about, smiles. It’s a fun day, a whirlwind four hours of capturing great smiles.” Claire also hopes that area business’s will partner with her in the PPA Charities Matching Event. “It’s a great “gift in kind” opportunity for business’ wishing to provide a photo session for their employees.

Maria Schneider Orchestra
Dates:Thursday, April 14, 2016
Title:Maria Schneider Orchestra
Description:It’s been almost a decade since the Maria Schneider Orchestra first performed at Penn State in a concert featuring a work co-commissioned by the Center for the Performing Arts. Now, the orchestra returns to Eisenhower Auditorium in a concert featuring the world premiere of another Center for the Performing Arts co-commission. “Maria Schneider’s orchestral jazz is about feeling. Like Wayne Shorter, she somehow expresses compassion through tones,” writes a New York Times reviewer. The Jazz Journalists Association and the Down Beat critics poll named her Concert in the Garden and Sky Blue, in turn, “jazz album of the year.” Schneider, who ignores genre boundaries, and her band have been nominated for ten Grammys and have won three. Organizations as diverse as the Monterey Jazz and American Dance festivals, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and Kronos Quartet have commissioned her to create music. “To call Schneider the most important woman in jazz is missing the point two ways,” insists a critic for Time. “She’s a major composer—period.”

Compagnia Finzi Pasca presents La Verita
Dates:Thursday, April 21, 2016
Title:Compagnia Finzi Pasca presents La Verita
Description:La Verità, a creation by Daniele Finzi Pasca, is a theatrical homage to the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí. The contemporary circus work features a certified replica of a backdrop Dalí painted in 1944. Originally created for the ballet Tristan and Isolde at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, the backdrop is a stunning focal point for this production by the creator of Cirque Éloize’s Rain, Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo, and his own company’s Donka: A Letter to Chekhov. La Verità, which features music by Maria Bonzanigo, includes a versatile cast of twelve performers who play instruments, sing, juggle, contort, clown, and dance the can-can. Channeling the surrealist vision of Dalí, themes explode into other themes. Ideas in the mind jostle and form themselves into images of blindfolded characters, hands with unnaturally long fingers, shadows that deform proportions, red blood, yellow flowers, the blue of the Virgin Mary’s cloak, the color white, ladders suspended in empty space, impossible balances, dismantled corpses, and colliding feathers and sequins. It’s as if the story takes place in a decadent Vaudeville. “La Verità delights through performances tinged with sheer beauty and offbeat humor,” writes a critic for Le Journal de Montréal. “Like a daydream … the acts are mesmerizingly beautiful.”

National Purple Heart Run
Dates:Tuesday, May 03, 2016
Title:National Purple Heart Run
Description:Combat Wounded, Disabled Veteran to Crisscross the Nation in specially adapted Ford F-150, to bring awareness of the costs of freedom. There are an estimated 1.8 million Purple Heart recipients, combat wounded service members who have transitioned back into civilian life. They have made great sacrifices to ensure our freedoms but often go unrecognized. The road to recovery and reintegration into their communities can be a long and difficult struggle for our nation’s wounded warriors and their families. The focus of the 2016 “Purple Heart Run” will be “Mobility is Freedom.” Sponsored jointly by the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) and Wounded Warriors Family Support (WWFS), the Purple Heart Run features a mobility-equipped, 2015 Ford F-150 Super Cab truck, adapted to suit combat-wounded veterans who are paralyzed or have lost legs or arms. Our belief is that, given the right vehicle for mobility, a combat-wounded veteran will have the freedom to live a productive and quality life with his or her family. Driven by LCpl Tyler Huffman, a combat wounded and paralyzed veteran of the war in Afghanistan, and Joe Tidwell, a combat wounded and disabled veteran of the Vietnam War, the Purple Heart Run Ford F-150 truck will make its way from coast-to-coast and back, rallying communities to thank our country’s military veterans and support this great mission. The Purple Heart Run will begin in Mt. Vernon, VA, on May 2, traverse the nation to California and return to end in Washington DC on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016. Along the way, the Purple Heart Truck will stop to visit with local MOPH Chapters and Purple Heart entities. Locally the Purple Heart Truck will stop: May 3, 2016 from 3-4 PM at the Flight 93 National Memorial (Shanksville, PA) Please come in uniform if possible, or wear purple to show your support. For more information contact Wanda Ickes, 814-505-2926 or wanda.ickes@rocketmail.com, Welfare Officer of the Local 992 Chapter (Forbes Road Charter) of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. At each stop they will deliver Combat Wounded Parking Signs, free of charge, to any interested entity as a way for them to honor and recognize these veterans. Already, the response to placing the signs has been tremendous. From coast to coast, the signs have been placed in the parking lots of businesses, restaurants, churches, schools and colleges, government buildings, medical facilities, and sports venues. Americans of all walks of life are invited and encouraged to show their support for our military families by visiting an event on the tour as a means of showing their support for our country’s veterans and their families. In a special ceremony at the conclusion of the Purple Heart Run, the keys to the truck will be presented to Purple Heart recipient Nicholas Thom of Broad Run, Virginia, who was chosen from a nation-wide search of eligible and deserving nominees. In Feb. 2010, Patriot Thom was wounded while his unit was clearing Afghan villages of Taliban fighters. Nick was blown up by a command detonated I.E.D., losing both his legs from above the knees, 3 fingers, and suffered severe soft tissue damage to his forearms. We need your help to allow us to continue to serve our nation’s veterans and their families. Every donation, large or small, is deeply appreciated and helps us meet our goal of making a normal transition back to civilian life a reality for many deserving veterans and their families. Partnership opportunities are available for companies and organizations of all kinds, and your financial support of the Purple Heart Run goes directly to the support and rehabilitation of deserving wounded warriors. By partnering with either the Wounded Warriors Family Support (WWFS or the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) Foundations, you would be showing your support for wounded veterans and their families as well as our country’s active and retired military and their families around the world. Through our partnership, you would be making a real, tangible difference that will change the lives of deserving wounded warriors and their families. The mission of Wounded Warrior Family Support (WWFS) is to provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations. The families of our casualties suffer in many ways: some financially, some psychologically. The overwhelming stress of the recovery process can threaten to tear a family apart. Their programs include: The Family Retreat program provides vacation retreats, free of charge, for wounded veterans to have the opportunity to decompress in a peaceful, non-stress environment, and share in positive experiences with their spouses and children, strengthening the bonds of their families and making lasting memories. The Caregiver Respite Programs provide respite and supplemental services nationwide to the caregivers and families of wounded war veterans. Oftentimes caregivers are spouses or family members who have many other responsibilities, such as work, managing bills and taking care of children. Caregivers of veterans often spend long hours caring for their loved one, feel high levels of stress and neglect their own personal health. The Respite Services Programs provide secondary caregiver assistance, respite aid for remote areas and short-term temporary relief in the form of child care and other services. The program also assists the caregiver in enrolling in the Department of Veterans Affairs Caregiver Support Services and other agencies offering resources and support. The “Mobility is Freedom” program provides grants to qualified combat-wounded for the purchase of a Ford vehicle, specially adapted to suit combat-wounded veterans who are paralyzed or have lost legs or arms The Military Order of the Purple Heart provides emotional, physical, educational and financial support for wounded and disabled veterans and their families, to help improve their lives. Programs include suicide prevention, support for veterans with brain injuries, counseling for Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and assistance for women's health issues – all common challenges for veterans. The Purple Heart Service Foundation provides scholarships, family assistance, claims assistance and employment training. Family members also get support, learning how to help disabled veterans to cope with their physical, emotional and behavioral challenges.

They have made great sacrifices to ensure our freedoms but often go unrecognized. The road to recovery and reintegration into their communities can be a long and difficult struggle for our nation’s wounded warriors and their families. The focus of the 2016 “Purple Heart Run” will be “Mobility is Freedom.” Sponsored jointly by the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) and Wounded Warriors Family Support (WWFS), the Purple Heart Run features a mobility-equipped, 2015 Ford F-150 Super Cab truck, adapted to suit combat-wounded veterans. Our belief is that, given the right vehicle for mobility, a combat-wounded veteran will have the freedom to live a productive and quality life with his or her family. Driven by LCpl Tyler Huffman, a combat wounded and paralyzed veteran of the war in Afghanistan, and Joe Tidwell, a combat wounded and disabled veteran of the Vietnam War, the Purple Heart Run Ford F-150 truck will make its way from coast-to-coast and back, rallying communities to thank our country’s military veterans and support this great mission. The Purple Heart Run will begin in Mt. Vernon, VA, on May 2, traverse the nation to California and return to end in Washington DC on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016. Along the way, the Purple Heart Truck will stop to visit with local MOPH Chapters and Purple Heart entities. Locally the Purple Heart Truck will stop: May 3, 2016 from 3-4 PM at the Flight 93 National Memorial (Shanksville, PA) Please come in uniform if possible, or wear purple to show your support. For more information contact Wanda Ickes, 814-505-2926 or wanda.ickes@rocketmail.com, Welfare Officer of the Local 992 Chapter (Forbes Road Charter) of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. At each stop they will deliver Combat Wounded Parking Signs, free of charge, to any interested entity as a way for them to honor and recognize these veterans. Already, the response to placing the signs has been tremendous. From coast to coast, the signs have been placed in the parking lots of businesses, restaurants, churches, schools and colleges, government buildings, medical facilities, and sports venues. Americans of all walks of life are invited and encouraged to show their support for our military families by visiting an event on the tour as a means of showing their support for our country’s veterans and their families. In a special ceremony at the conclusion of the Purple Heart Run, the keys to the truck will be presented to Purple Heart recipient Nicholas Thom of Broad Run, Virginia, who was chosen from a nation-wide search of eligible and deserving nominees. In Feb. 2010, Patriot Thom was wounded while his unit was clearing Afghan villages of Taliban fighters. Nick was blown up by a command detonated I.E.D., losing both his legs from above the knees, 3 fingers, and suffered severe soft tissue damage to his forearms. We need your help to allow us to continue to serve our nation’s veterans and their families. Every donation, large or small, is deeply appreciated and helps us meet our goal of making a normal transition back to civilian life a reality for many deserving veterans and their families. Partnership opportunities are available for companies and organizations of all kinds, and your financial support of the Purple Heart Run goes directly to the support and rehabilitation of deserving wounded warriors. By partnering with either the Wounded Warriors Family Support (WWFS or the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) Foundations, you would be showing your support for wounded veterans and their families as well as our country’s active and retired military and their families around the world. Through our partnership, you would be making a real, tangible difference that will change the lives of deserving wounded warriors and their families. The mission of Wounded Warrior Family Support (WWFS) is to provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations. The families of our casualties suffer in many ways: some financially, some psychologically. The overwhelming stress of the recovery process can threaten to tear a family apart. Their programs include: The Family Retreat program provides vacation retreats, free of charge, for wounded veterans to have the opportunity to decompress in a peaceful, non-stress environment, and share in positive experiences with their spouses and children, strengthening the bonds of their families and making lasting memories. The Caregiver Respite Programs provide respite and supplemental services nationwide to the caregivers and families of wounded war veterans. Oftentimes caregivers are spouses or family members who have many other responsibilities, such as work, managing bills and taking care of children. Caregivers of veterans often spend long hours caring for their loved one, feel high levels of stress and neglect their own personal health. The Respite Services Programs provide secondary caregiver assistance, respite aid for remote areas and short-term temporary relief in the form of child care and other services. The program also assists the caregiver in enrolling in the Department of Veterans Affairs Caregiver Support Services and other agencies offering resources and support. The “Mobility is Freedom” program provides grants to qualified combat-wounded for the purchase of a Ford vehicle, specially adapted to suit combat-wounded veterans who are paralyzed or have lost legs or arms The Military Order of the Purple Heart provides emotional, physical, educational and financial support for wounded and disabled veterans and their families, to help improve their lives. Programs include suicide prevention, support for veterans with brain injuries, counseling for Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and assistance for women's health issues – all common challenges for veterans. The Purple Heart Service Foundation provides scholarships, family assistance, claims assistance and employment training. Family members also get support, learning how to help disabled veterans to cope with their physical, emotional and behavioral challenges.

In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy?!

The musicians are alumni of Detroit’s internationally acclaimed Sphinx Competition, which provides educational and performance opportunities to Black and Latino musicians.

Catalyst Quartet, whose members perform as a chamber ensemble and as principal musicians in Sphinx Virtuosi, made its central Pennsylvania debut last season as part of a residency at Penn State. Members of Sphinx Virtuosi have performed as soloists with America’s major ensembles, including New York Philharmonic and the symphony orchestras of Cleveland, Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Pittsburgh.

Ramsey LewisJohn Pizzarelli NatCole Tribute
Dates:Thursday, October 13, 2016
Title:Ramsey LewisJohn Pizzarelli NatCole Tribute
Description:Nat King Cole broke the pop barrier with his smoky, smooth vocals, stringing along a huge number of solid hits right after his first, “Straighten Up and Fly Right,” soared up the charts in 1943. As a vocalist, he was called “the best friend a song ever had,” but he was a jazz performer at heart. Even those later tracks crafted for the pop charts belie a piano technique, vocal phrasing, and on-the-mark orchestration that are indebted to his roots in jazz. Pianist Ramsey Lewis and guitarist-singer John Pizzarelli pay tribute to the titan of 1950s vocal pop in a concert featuring Cole’s hits along with those singular tracks of sophisticated cool jazz that have influenced their own recordings. Adult $48 University Park Student $15 18 and Younger $38

Shadowland by Pilobolus
Dates:Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Title:Shadowland by Pilobolus
Description:Created by famed dance company Pilobolus, Shadowland is a first-of-its-kind performance combining legendary modern dance with high-energy, fast-paced multimedia, merging front-of-screen choreography with projected images and moving screens of different sizes and shapes. Shadowland tells the story of a teenage girl, longing for her independence, with nowhere for her thoughts to go but to her dreams. She sleeps, only to wake to something incredible lurking behind her bedroom wall—her shadow. Walls spin, darkness swallows the girl, and she’s off on a journey into Shadowland. Shadowland was conceived in collaboration with Steven Banks, lead writer for the playfully surreal animated series SpongeBob SquarePants, and is propelled by a rhythmic original score by the popular American musician, producer, and film composer David Poe. Shadowland has the fluid logic of a dream powered by the grace of an acrobatic dance, evincing surprise and joyous delight in a way that is uniquely Pilobolus. The performance includes nudity. The performers will also participate in a post-performance discussion with audience members.

Straight No Chaser
Dates:Friday, November 11, 2016
Title:Straight No Chaser
Description:If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures images of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses, think again. Straight No Chaser isn’t straightlaced, straight-faced, or vaudeville-style kitsch. The group has emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fan following, numerous national television appearances, and proven success with CD releases. The I’ll Have Another tour comes to Penn State in celebration of the group’s twentieth anniversary. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that moves people in a fundamental sense—and with a sense of humor. The tour follows Straight No Chaser’s most recent album, 2015’s The New Old Fashioned, in which the group lends its inimitable vocal style to contemporary standards including The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face,” Hozier’s “Take Me to Church,” Radiohead’s “Creep,” and Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love.” The album also features some of the group’s incomparable medleys, such as “Beggin’/Counting Stars,” blending favorites by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and OneRepublic, and “On the Road Again/Play the Road,” by Willie Nelson and Zac Brown Band, respectively. And speaking of being on the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act. BRE Presents brings Straight No Chaser to Eisenhower Auditorium.
