Click here for Stage 62 and to purchase tickets.

A prequel to Peter Pan, based on the best-selling novels, STARCATCHER is a rollicking, tuneful prequel to the beloved Peter Pan story. Starcatcher-in-training Molly and a nameless orphan boy embark on an epic sea quest, cross swords with a motley pirate crew led by the fearfully funny Black Stache, and take us on a whimsical, transformative adventure to discover their destinies in the Neverland you never knew.

Patrons with families take note: STARCATCHER is one of those rare Broadway shows that captures the Disney genius of being both hilarious for adults and delightful for children (Stage 62 suggests 8 years old and up).

Donna’s May 5th playlist includes selections by Cole Porter, Willie Nelson, Henry Mancini, Sammy Cahn/Gene DePaul as well as her own compositions.  She is proud to be joined for this concert by jazz greats Mike Tomaro on Sax, Joe DeFazio on Piano, Jason Hollar on Bass and David Jamison on Percussion.

John Cummings, “Gettysburg Harvest of Death” (Music Hall) 10:15 AM One of the most elusive group of Civil War battlefield photographs has been the image known as “The Harvest of Death” showing the same bodies from a near opposite angle. The group was made in the days following the battle, most probably July 6, 1863. There have been three prevailing ideas as to the precise location of this ghastly scene. Mr. Cummings will present his theory on where the picture was actually taken.

Assistant Library Director Nate Wyrick will be on hand to help people with problems they have with their “devices” (notebooks, smartphones, kindles, etc.) and to gather information about what patrons need more help with. Tech-savvy volunteers from Carlynton will be available to assist him with that.

New Children’s & Youth Services Librarian Elizabeth Shedlock will be on hand with craft activities for pre-schoolers through middle-schoolers. Carnegie favorite Jeff Keenan will be drawing free caricatures in the Lincoln Gallery and the Espy Post will be open during throughout the Open House.

As a special treat, very local jazz ensemble (Rich Laus hails from Rennerdale) RLM Jazz will perform in the Studio from 1:15 –2:45. Art from the Carlynton Community Arts Extravaganza will still be on display in the Studio, where light refreshments will be served.

Love Your Library

Any and all Gifts in September will be Matched!

A patron came to the circ desk recently and confided, “I’ve always loved libraries.”  She had just moved to Carnegie, and continued, “But this one is really special!”

We agree. It is a pleasure to come to work at the Andrew Carnegie Free Library.  Among the reasons why are the warm sense of community and belonging that patrons and staff alike experience; the delight of preschoolers (along with that of their observers) “Shaking their Sillies Out” with Miss JoLynne or helping a woman who was struggling with a difficult custody issue to send an important fax before the Library actually opened.

September 2016 is an especially good month to love this Library.  Any gift up to $500 given to the ACFL – between September 1 and September 30 – will be matched by a very generous $125,000 grant from the Jack Buncher Foundation.

Of course there’s a catch.  All 46 libraries that are members of the Allegheny County Library Association are eligible to participate in this opportunity.  The more people give throughout the county, the smaller the match….

That’s okay.  Libraries are about two things: SHARING and EMPOWERMENT.  We ask that you share your treasure with us this September.  Your donation in any amount – whether you mail a check, drop off a cash donation at the circulation desk or give on line at www.carnegiecarnegie.org/online-donations/ will secure a pro-rated portion of that $125,000

Your generosity empowers us to provide better services and programs.  In September, it empowers us even more!  Every dollar counts around here.  We who work at the Andrew Carnegie Free Library are deeply appreciative and diligent stewards of the community’s generosity.

Love, I Hear: The Lyrics of Stephen Sondheim

Performed by Gavan Pamer

Saturday, April 2 at 7:30pm

Click Here for Tickets!

“Love, I Hear: The Lyrics of Stephen Sondheim” explores a personal journey of the highs and lows of love and relationships, as told through the brilliant lyrics of Stephen Sondheim, sung by Gavan Pamer and accompanied by Kathleen Billie (piano) and Freya Samuels (cello).

Sondheim’s influence on the American musical theater landscape is indisputable, encompassing more than a half-century of contributions, with nearly every accolade imaginable, including a Pulitzer Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. His best known works as lyricist and composer include, among others: “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”, “Company”, “Follies”, “A Little Night Music”, “Sweeney Todd”, “Sunday in the Park with George” and “Into the Woods”. His lyrical credits additionally include “West Side Story” and “Gypsy”.

In the company of exceptional musicians, Gavan Pamer (music director for last year’s Music Hall performance of The Civil War, and an accomplished performer in his own right) will perform well-known favorites, including: “Something’s Coming” from West Side Story, and “Not While I’m Around” from Sweeney Todd–as well as some of Sondheim’s lesser-known standouts, such as “Live Alone and Like It” from the movie “Dick Tracy”.

This performance begins at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door on the day of the event, and $15 for students.

Shuttle service provided from Main Street municipal parking lot (between Mary and Pine Streets) in Carnegie, PA.

Please join us for a light dessert reception in our 2nd Floor Lincoln Gallery after the performance.

This concert is made possible through the generosity the A.W. Mellon and Charitable Trust of The Pittsburgh Foundation.

The Pittsburgh Savoyards bring you The Pirates of Penzance: or, The Slave of Duty. This comic opera in two acts is regarded as one of the finest of Gilbert & Sullivan’s works, and masterfully staged by this 78-year theatrical company!

The story concerns Frederic, who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates. He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, and the two young people fall instantly in love. Frederic soon learns, however, that he was born on 29 February, and so, technically, he only has a birthday each leap year. His indenture specifies that he remain apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday and that he must serve for another 63 years. Bound by his own sense of duty, Frederic’s only solace is that Mabel agrees to wait for him faithfully.

Under the music direction of Guy Russo, and stage direction of Sean Lenhart.

Gary Augustine joins our rank of distinguished speakers to talk on “Shiloh: the Battle that Changed the War.” In early April 1862, large Union and Confederate Armies clashed along the banks of the Tennessee River at a location known as Pittsburgh Landing. Out of this carnage two Union generals emerged who would eventually lead the Union to victory — U.S. Grant and W.T. Sherman. Join us as we encounter Sherman in Farley’s field; Prentiss’ men holding fast in the Hornet’s Nest; Grant surrounded by dead and dying; and Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston bleeding to death in a leafy hollow leaving one to ask how long and at what cost would this War endure? Join Gary as we seek to answer these questions.

The Sisters (Richard Alfieri’s modern adaptation of Chekhov’s Three Sisters)

Cup-A-Jo Productions

The Sisters is a re-imagining of Chekov’s classic Three Sisters. The story of these three sisters and the way they are forced to face themselves in the wake of their father’s death speaks to how we all seek to reconcile our pasts with our futures. By moving the action of the play from a provincial town in Russia during the early 1900′s to a more recent past the play becomes a much more visceral and confrontational drama full of pop-psychology and family woes. This production is set to take place in a historic library as an homage to Chekov and in an effort to use an unconventional space to immerse audiences in a more satisfying mash-up of old and new aesthetic and ideas that is emblematic of the play itself.

Thursday-Saturday, January 7-9 and 14-16

Cup-A-Jo  Productions seeks to function as a collaboration of Pittsburgh artists working through different mediums to explore the boundaries of theatre, creating a more visceral experience for its audience.

The first rock opera, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR depicts the meteor-like rise of Jesus as a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.

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

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.

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!

AMANDA VAN STORY LEWIS IN CONCERT

An Emerging Artist Performance 

Thursday, September 17 at 7:30pm

This past January, the ACFL&MH was enthralled with a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article highlighting budding opera singer Amanda Van Story Lewis. Aspiring artist by night and singing receptionist for Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto by day, Amanda is no stranger to the spotlight.

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. There she received instruction from Dr. James Moore and Dr. J.W. Norris. During that time, she also studied at the Academia D’ell Arte in Arezzo, Italy where she focused on opera and physical theater; and she trained with Francesca Francalanci of Florence, Italy, culminating in a solo concert.

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.

Ms. Van Story Lewis moved to Pittsburgh and in 2010 received a fellowship from the August Wilson Center for African American Culture. She is currently being mentored by retired professional opera singer, Ross Dacal. This September she will make her “Carnegie Carnegie” Hall debut with traditional pieces from Mozart, Schubert and Debussy–as well as two spiritual selections.
