Kris White ~~The Valley Forge Winter-The Christmas of 1862 in the Army of the Potomac

Saturday, November 14th, 1:00pm

The year 1862 had started with high hopes for the Federal Army of the Potomac. The army had once been within 8 miles of the Confederate Capital of Richmond, and an end to the war was seemingly  within their grasp. By Christmas of 1862 the army had been battered and defeated on numerous fields by Robert E. Lee, the worst coming in December, at Fredericksburg. The winter marked the lowest  morale point for the army. We will examine how far the Union morale plummeted that December, and how the men coped with being away from home at Christmas, as well as the celebrations they enjoyed, in camp, during the 1862 holiday season.

Light refreshments served. Registration not required. Free and open to the public. 2nd Saturday Lecture Series made possible by the Massey Charitable Trust.

iolanthe-poster_reduced

A beautiful maiden falls in love with a shepherd boy and wishes to marry him. Her Guardian, the Lord Chancellor of the House of Lords, refuses to permit it, for he wishes for her to marry a Peer of the House.

But this tale is just beginning… for the shepherd boy is Strephon, half fairy/half mortal son of the Fairy Iolanthe, a friend of the Fairy Queen.

It’s NOT a good idea to anger the Fairy Queen! Fairies and Shepherds, Politicians and Soldiers, and a musical Masterpiece that delights one and all!

Lewis, 33,is a classically trained singer born in Washington, DC with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Classical Voice Performance from Howard University.

Amanda has been fortunate to perform as a featured soloist for such prestigious events as: the 10th Anniversary of the African American Civil War Memorial in Washington DC, the Congressional Black Caucus’s Black Women’s Agenda in 2008, and the National Walk for Epilepsy 2010 where she sang the National Anthem. Amanda has also performed in Joyce Garett’s Choir for the 2007 and 2008 Kennedy Center Honors.

Amanda is an accomplished pageant winner, having served as Miss Black District of Columbia USA 2008, and Miss District of Columbia International 2009.

Menard Presents:
Carnegies in Concert
ACFL&MH Annual Benefit
October 2 at 7:30pm

The Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall’s annual benefit — “Menard Presents: Carnegies in Concert” — brings renowned faculty and alumni from Carnegie Mellon University’s elite School of Music to the ACFL&MH’s acoustically superb Music Hall for a glittery evening of outstanding music.

Renowned violinist and former Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Concert Master Andrés Cárdenes and his violinist wife Monique Mead (also CMU’s Director of Music Entrepreneurship and Center for Arts Innovation) headline an eclectic roster of performers. Among the performers are pianist Rodrigo Ojeda, Caitlin Quinlan (vocalist and CMU cello major), C Street Brass and Isabel(11) and Tito(10) Cárdenes on harp and piano respectively.

An after-performance supper reception throughout the ACFL&MH’s historic landmark facility follows the concert. Audience members will be the first to preview the just restored Library interior. (Slated to re-open October 25.)

Proceeds from “Carnegies in Concert” benefit the campaign to restore and revitalize the Library & Music Hall.

Orchestra Seats $125 ($90 tax-deductible); Balcony $75 ($40 tax-deductible)
