Second Annual Young At Art Expo Is Back!

young-at-art-logoThe Lehigh Valley Arts Council is proud to present the second annual Young at Art Expo.on Saturday, March 11, 2017. Held at Penn State Lehigh Valley, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, this event invites families with children of all ages to enjoy music, dance, arts and exploration. Admission is free and open to the public.

Local arts providers will assist parents with selecting the right summer class for their aspiring creatives. Parents will witness first-hand how the arts ignite their children’s imagination, while their kids get the chance to explore their inner dancer, actor, musician, author or visual artist.

“Young at Art is a day devoted to curiosity and entertainment,” says Executive Director Randall Forte. “Last year, we welcomed over 300 guests to our inaugural event, and the positive response from local families was wonderful!”

“My girls loved the different activity tables and face painting,” said Hazel Singleton Chumo, mother of two fun-loving girls, ages 7 and 4. “They also enjoyed the live performances which made it more entertaining.”

The expo showcases twenty arts and cultural businesses in the region that offer a wide range of children’s programming, both for beginners and for kids at an intermediate level. Among them include Community Music School, Banana Factory, Allegro Dance Studio, Swain School, Mikayla’s Voice, and the Mayura Academy of Dance.

The day’s festivities will feature an arts demonstration or performance every fifteen minutes, so kids will have a chance “to imagine what kind of artist” they want to be this summer. Families will have the opportunity to meet different arts instructors and join in hands-on activities. Lunch will be available for purchase, and parking is free.

ONE OF THE MOST SENSATIONAL FARCES EVER WRITTEN

Charley’s Aunt is set during the Victorian era at Oxford University, in the quarters of two undergraduates who frantically search for a way to express their love to their soon departing sweethearts. The solution to their problem comes in the form of Charley’s aunt who is visiting from Brazil. With her acting as a chaperone, the boys can invite their lovers to an official lunch and finally pop the question. However, all goes wrong when a message arrives informing the boys that the aunt is delayed and won’t make it in time. In a last ditch effort the young lads coerce their friend to don a dress and become “Charley’s aunt.” Throughout the afternoon the troublesome trio fumble through spastic conversations, unexpected suitors, cat-and-mouse meet-ups, and the occasional teatime mishap. Charley’s Aunt is a frenzied farce filled with so many twists and turns it will make your head spin.

When her brother Orestes returns, Elektra’s anger and thirst for retribution explodes in a merciless fury.

$20 RUSH TICKETS For Moscow String Quartet‏

Chamber Music Society of Bethlehem
presents

Moscow String Quartet

  • Beethoven: String Quartet No. 8 in E Minor, Op. 59, No. 2
  • Mozart: String Quartet No. 16 in Eb Major, K. 428
  • Schnittke: String Quartet No. 2

Friday ◊ April 17, 2015 ◊ 7:30 p.m.
Faith United Church of Christ
Center Valley, PA
Founded in 1975 by Moscow Conservatory students of the Borodin Quartet’s famed cellist Valentin Berlinsky, the Moscow String Quartet has been praised by The Philadelphia Inquirer for the grace, sonority, and lyricism associated with Borodin, “their natural home.” Included in the ensemble’s impressive repertoire, of course, are Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich. They have also championed the work of more contemporary Russian composers like Sofia Gubaidulina and Alfred Schnittke. The MSQ artists name, as their inspirations, great Russian musicians: Oistrakh, Rostropovich, Richter, Gilels, and Berlinsky. It is no wonder that they are considered one of the major Russian chamber ensembles currently performing and recording.

At a concert organized by West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt and at the special invitation of then Soviet composer Alfred Schnittke, the group played in Berlin Stadium to celebrate the collapse of the Berlin Wall. The quartet has toured extensively throughout Europe and North America, including performances in the United States at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the White House. Glowing reviews of MSQ performances consistently focus on the group’s musical patience, producing “inward subtleties” (The Philadelphia Inquirer) and its “lithe athleticism and wry wit” (Stereophile). The Dallas Morning News noted “deft, elegant playing, passionate where called for, but never hysterical. . . . a welcome reprieve from the turbocharged assaults” too often made by other ensembles. Jerry Dubins, in reviewing for Fanfare a new release (2014) of the quartet’s performance of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 2 in A, declared “this is amazing music-making at its highest level.”
