Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Hosts Two-Piano Recital effrey Brillhart and Laura Ward will bring light into the dark days of winter with a Two-Piano Recital on Sunday, January 28 at 2 p.m. in the Sanctuary at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church.

Jeffrey Brillhart and Laura Ward will perform a Two-Piano Recital on Sunday, January 28 at 2 p.m. in the Sanctuary at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church. In honor of the 100th anniversary of Claude Debussy’s death, they will present his monumental work for two pianos, En Blanc et Noir. The composer wrote that the movements “derive their color and feeling merely from the sonority of the piano.” A pianist and co-founding artistic director of Lyric Fest, Ward has been gracing Philadelphia audiences with her powerful, sensitive accompanying since arriving here in 1998. As a distinguished collaborative pianist, she is known for both her technical ability and vast knowledge of repertoire and styles. A native of Texas, Laura received her bachelor’s degree from Baylor University, holds a master’s degree in Piano Accompanying at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and a doctorate in Accompanying from the University of Michigan as a student of Martin Katz. Brillhart is director of music and fine arts at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, and he is on the music faculty at Yale University, where he teaches organ improvisation. Brillhart is also music and artistic director of Philadelphia’s famed Singing City Choir. A native of Iowa, his teachers include organists Carl B. Staplin, Arthur Poister, Russell Saunders, and pianist Barbara Lister-Sink. Further studies with Olivier Latry and Philippe Lefebvre in organ improvisation led to his winning first prize in the American Guild of Organists' National Competition in Organ Improvisation in 1994. The suggested offering for this program is $10 per person. Following this concert, a reception will honor the performers and provide viewers the opportunity to enjoy a solo show of the works of Ray Sternbergh, father of BMPC member Jennifer Huth. The reception also opens an exhibit for Black History Month to recognize four historic black churches in Ardmore and two churches in Bryn Mawr for their ongoing religious and societal missions in our community. Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church is located at 625 Montgomery Avenue. For information, visit or call 610525-2821.

C HABAD OF P ENN W YNNE S EEKS TO R ECLAIM L OST A RT OF H UMAN C ONNECTION ow are our almost constant interactions with devices affecting our relationships? This question is what drove Rabbi Brennan of Chabad of Penn Wynne to offer “Communication: Its Art and Soul” at the Kaiserman JCC. Beginning Monday, January 22, at 7:30 p.m., he will present the first lesson of this new six-session course from the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). “Jewish wisdom includes many powerful and original insights into the art of communication that are more relevant today than ever,” explained Rabbi Brennan of Chabad of Penn Wynne, the local JLI instructor in Wynnewood. “The goal of this course is to mine these texts and seek out their golden teachings. I believe this can help us reclaim the lost art of deep human connection in spite of our devices.” “Can you think of a more timely and pervasive issue?” asked Rabbi Zalman Abraham of JLI’s Brooklyn, New York headquarters. “Many people take communication for granted, but it is the very fabric of our society. The goal of the course is simply to make us better parents, better spouses, better coworkers, better friends, and better people across the board.” “In Jewish philosophy, communication is more than just a



tool: it is who we are. Humans are defined as communicative beings with a communicative soul, and aligning ourselves with this soul is our raison d’être. In Communication: Its Art and Soul, we contrast Jewish thought with scientific discovery to unearth the essence of communication and how to utilize its powers to better ourselves, our relationships, and all of society,” reads a description of the course on JLI’s website. Medical and mental health professionals, including social workers and family therapists, can earn continuing education credits for attending “Communication: Its Art and Soul.” Like all JLI programs, this course is designed to appeal to people at all levels of knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple, or other house of worship. Call 610-529-9011 or visit for registration and for other course-related information. JLI courses are presented in Penn Wynne in conjunction with Chabad of Penn Wynne.

Anna’s efforts also make a difference in the environment by locally rescuing thousands of pounds of fabric from landfills. “I am excited about this donation to Tree House Books, because I am able to see the impact come to life in my community,” said Anna Welsh, founder and CEO. “I believe that every child should have access to quality books.” Since the company’s founding in early 2017, littlebags.BIGIMPACT has impacted more than 1500 children in Philadelphia with a total monetary donation of $1500, along with 1,000 quality new and gently used books. “This $1000 donation really makes a big difference. Because of the donations you personally gave, as well as the many new faces that you introduced to Tree House Books, we were able to reinvent our literacy programs to provide personalized attention to help even more children and families then ever before in our history,” said June M. Bretz, Executive Director, Tree House Books. In Philadelphia, there is just one age-appropriate book in every 300 homes. Sixty-seven percent of the children currently entering third grade are not reading on grade-level, making them 87% more likely to drop out of high school. Tree House Books, with the partnership and commitment of community members like Anna Welsh, is working to change these grim statistics to ensure that Philadelphia is a city of readers, writers, and thinkers. Recognized by Philadelphia Media Network as a Stellar StartUp, Anna is also the 2017 recipient of the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award by the Philadelphia Center for Advancing Entrepreneurs and the National Association of Women Business Owners Philadelphia Chapter.

Steve Morrison, co-host of WMMR’s “Preston & Steve” morning radio show, spreads positivity and laughter through hilarious telephone interviews, talks with in-studio guests, celebrity impersonations, unusual news stories, and running gags. The popular radio first aired on WMMR in May, 2005, and features Morrison alongside co-host Preston Elliot and some very talented others. But, the show actually originated seven years earlier on Y100 Philadelphia with Preston and Marilyn Russell, both formerly of WDRE Philadelphia. Morrison, at the time a DJ on WDRE’s parent station in New York, joined the cast several months later and the rest is, as they say, history. The “Preston & Steve” show airs weekdays from 6 to 10:30 a.m., and has led local morning radio ratings since 2006. The show is also streamed live around the world via the WMMR website and is a featured podcast on iTunes. The Tasty Talks luncheon will begin at 12:30 p.m., featuring a delicious prix fixe meal of hors d’oeuvres, an entrée, and dessert prepared by Yangming’s awardSteve Morrison, co-host of WMMR’s “Preston & Steve” morning radio show, winning chefs.

The prix fixe can be purchased ahead for $20, including tax and tip. Please note that walk-ins will be charged $25 and the prix fixe price does not include the available alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. This concept was conceived by noted realtor Michelle Leonard who has already come into local notoriety as “The Hat Lady,“ as well as co-creator Thanuja Hamilton, MD, who has provided additional community support. “The Tasty Talks Luncheon Series has been a huge success,” said Yangming owner, Michael Wei. “We are so proud to host these events and welcome the neighborhood into our restaurant. Each month has been a new and eye opening experience for our guests. And we couldn’t be more thankful to Dr. Hamilton and Michelle Leonard for their generous support. These active community advocates seem to know just about everyone who is anyone.” All profits from Yangming’s “Tasty Talk” on this occasion will be donated to The Mac Fund at the Cat Shack, a non-profit organization founded by Morrison’s wife, Claire in memory of their beloved cat, Mac. Donations to The Mac Fund support the spaying and neutering of stray cats in an effort to reduce overpopulation, with the goal of securing a safe home for every cat.

WAYNE A RT C ENTER P RESENTS L ECTURE & D INNER “Le Pâquis” Featuring Food and Stories from M.F.K. Fisher on January 25 mily Bell, President of Slow Food Philadelphia, will present The Art of Eating: A Lecture and Dinner, “Le Pâquis” featuring food and stories from M.F.K. Fisher’s written works on Thursday, January 25, 2018, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Wayne Art Center. Join 15+ guests to hear Emily Bell discuss the forerunner to Julia Child, M.F.K. Fisher. A live demo by Bell and a tasting of cuisines from M.F.K Fisher’s book will be the delight of the evening. Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher (1908-1992) was a preeminent American food writer and chef who founded the Napa Valley Wine Library. Over her lifetime, she wrote artful personal essays in over 27 books about food. Bell is an avid cook and food lover who has worked in the wine business for the last 11 years, including five years at a Napa-based biodynamic winery. Following the dinner, guests can enjoy viewing “Craft Forms 2017” and “Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Women in Glass” in the Wayne Art Center’s galleries. One of the highest museum-quality craft exhibitions in the United States, “Craft Forms” consistently draws upward of 5,000 visitors during its two-month exhibition. “Craft Forms’” status as a fine craft exhibition grows each year in large part due to the expertise of the acclaimed jurors. Wayne Art Center was pleased to welcome Nora Atkinson, the Lloyd Herman Curator of Craft of the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, as this year’s “Craft Forms” Juror. In addition, Wayne Art Center was equally excited to present this year’s companion show, “Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Women in Glass,” curated by Dr. Arlene Silvers. A glass educator and collector extraordinaire, Silvers is best known for her glass curatorial efforts with the National Liberty Museum in Center City. “Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Women in Glas”s is running concurrently with “Craft Forms” and features over 75 works by over 22 invitational glass artists. The exhibition surveys female glass artists, from the “Grand Dames” of the 70s to the “Young Turks” of the 21st century, and shows many achievements of women working with glass, from the male-dominated Studio Glass Movement of the 1960s to the present. Wayne Art Center is located at 413 Maplewood Avenue in Wayne, PA. For information, call 610-688-3553 or visit www.

AIM Academy Students Read and Share Books with Ziegler Elementary Classes MLK Service Project for Students with Language-Based Learning Differences Helps Them Share Literacy Skills and Love of Books with Students

AIM Academy students, who have language-based learning differences such as dyslexia, practiced and prepared their reading presentations before arriving to read to students at Ziegler Elementary School.

AIM 5th Graders and Ziegler Kindergarten students hold their books high during the AIM Academy students’ MLK Service Day visit to Ziegler Elementary School in Northeast Philadelphia.

An AIM Academy 5th grader reads to a Ziegler Elementary kindergarten student. The AIM Institute for Learning & Research has been working with educators and students at Ziegler for the past three years implementing AIM’s Integrated Literacy Model to help improve reading proficiency.

IM Academy 5th grade students traveled to Ziegler Elementary School in northeast Philadelphia on Friday to read books to students in Kindergarten – 2nd grade and deliver “at home book packages” featuring favorite titles donated by AIM’s 1st – 5th grade Lower School students. The book delivery and school visit were the culmination of the students’ service project in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The visit to Ziegler was also a way for AIM Academy students, who have language-based learning differences such as dyslexia and dysgraphia, to develop a relationship with Ziegler’s students, many of whom are learning literacy skills using the same evidence-based methods taught in AIM’s classrooms. “The AIM Institute for Learning & Research has been working with educators at Ziegler A Ziegler Kindergarten student eagerly for the past three years sharing our Integrated Literacy Model with teachers and students,” pages through one of the new books he said Suruchi Keenheel, Director of Instructional Coaching and Training for the AIM Institute. received from AIM Academy students “We are pleased that our AIM Academy students are forging a new relationship with Ziegler in an “at home book package.” students by sharing their love of reading and providing K-2 students with packages of books to enjoy at home.” In preparation for the visit to Ziegler, Lower School students were asked to bring a copy of their favorite book to school with a note written inside the front cover as to why the book is special to them. Thanks to the support of the entire AIM community, close to 500 books were collected. After spending 30 minutes reading to Ziegler students on Friday, AIM students provided the approximately 180 K-2nd grade students with an “at home book package” including a pencil, a bookmark and two to three books. The students were excited to page through their new books and were eager to take them home. Ziegler teachers appreciated the opportunity for students to read together in small groups of 3 to 6 children as two AIM students read their chosen books to students. “Our 5th graders read with fluency, accuracy and confidence,” said AIM teacher and project organizer Eryn Doroshow. “The goal of our visit and the book collection was to increase Ziegler students’ access to literacy during all parts of their day,” explained AIM Lower School Head Allison Enslein. “This important endeavor helps our students gain confidence in their reading and helps to cultivate an attitude of gratitude helping our students think about gratitude in terms of what we give instead of what we receive.”

Experiential Learning at Merion Mercy Academy

Five of Merion Mercy’s GMM club members who visited FOX 29, from left – Katrina McDermott of Drexel Hill, Madeline Larkin of Haddonfiled, NJ, Maggie Roccato of Moorestown, NJ, Katie Lynch of Springfield, and Caitlin Farkas of Ardmore. erion Mercy believes in the power of learning by doing–Mercy is a verb! That’s why MMA students have access to many experiential learning opportunities, from various field trips to service learning, volunteerism, student research, international opportunities, and field study. There are considerable benefits of experiential learning. Providing an authentic context that shows how students' knowledge will be used in real life and access to expert performances are just a few of them. Last month, members of the school’s Good Morning, Merion! (GMM) club visited Fox 29 news station in Philadelphia. The students worked on a piece about college acceptance letters, which aired December 24, 2017. They also toured the studio and learned more about video creation, cutting, and production. GMM is a school club designed for students who are interested in working in front of – and behind – the camera to broadcast the daily school news on TV. The live news program Good Morning, Merion! airs during homeroom with special announcements and presentations, followed by a scrolling PowerPoint of text-based information. Regular members are chosen each spring for the following year. Students fill all of the GMM roles, including producer, director, technical director, audio engineer, graphic designer, anchors, and writers. They take ownership of the program and put knowledge into action each school day.

Rosemont College Welcomes Back Philadelphia Artist and Alumna Michelle Angela Ortiz ifting Our Voices: Stories of Immigration through Public Art,” an event featuring local artist and Rosemont alumna Michelle Angela Ortiz, will take place at Rosemont College’s Rotwitt Theater on Thursday, January 25, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event will focus on Ortiz’s work and creative process. During her two-hour presentation, Ortiz will share stories connected to immigration and how they are represented through public art. This event is free and open to the public. “We are doubly pleased to welcome Michelle Angela Ortiz to Rosemont both for our College community’s increased awareness of these issues and as a meaningful response to Pope Francis’s call to Colleges and Universities to address the Refugee and Immigration crisis,” said Sr. Jeanne Marie Hatch, Vice President of Rosemont College Mission and Ministry. “As a member of the Immigration and Refugee Higher Education Sub-committee, Rosemont College invites our Community and those beyond the campus to learn about our local Philadelphia scene and to engage in discussion leading to specific action steps.” Michelle Angela Ortiz is a visual artist, skilled muralist, and community arts educator. She uses her art as a vehicle to represent people and communities whose histories are often lost or co-opted. Through painting, printmaking, and community arts practices, she creates a safe space for dialogue around some of the most profound issues communities and individuals may face. Her work tells stories using richly crafted and emotive imagery to claim and transform spaces into a visual affirmation that reveals the strength and spirit of the community. “Like a stone thrown in the water, my work begins with conversations that then ripple into my studio, transient public spaces, neighborhoods, galleries, and museums,” Ortiz said. “I balance the aesthetic, social, and political through the visual narrative to claim and transform spaces in ways that affirm the realities of the communities navigating through these spaces.”

Ortiz strives to counteract mainstream narratives that criminalize immigrants and devalue the contributions of communities of color. Her work centers on themes of immigration, socio-economic inequalities, and erased histories. She says her creative process is activated through facilitating dia-

A highly skilled muralist, Ortiz has designed and created over 50 large-scale public works nationally and internationally. Since 2008, she has led community building and art for social change public art projects both independently in Costa Rica and Ecuador and through the United States Embassy as a Cultural Envoy in Fiji, Mexico, Argentina, Spain, Venezuela, and Honduras. In Cuba, she completed the first U.S. State funded public art project since the re-opening of the United States Embassy in Havana in 2015. Ortiz is a recent Rauschenberg Foundation Artist Activist Fellow, a Kennedy Center Citizen Artist National Fellow, and a Santa Fe Art Institute Equal Justice Resident Artist. In 2016, she received the Americans for the Arts’ Public Art Year in Review Award which honors outstanding public arts projects in the nation. She is also a fellow of the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture Fund for the Arts, as well as the recipient of the Leeway Foundation Transformation Award and Art & Change Grant. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Moore College of Art & Design, along with a Master’s Degree in Science of Arts and Cultural Management from Rosemont College.

French International School of Philadelphia students, alumni, teachers and volunteers listen to instructions from Head of School Kathy Kotchick ahead of completing service projects benefiting various charitable organizations for the 23rd Annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service on January 15, 2018. he French International School of Philadelphia participated in the 23rd Annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, January 15, hosting events at its two campuses and sending a delegation of students to take part in activities at Girard College. At the French International School, some 450 individuals, including students, families, faculty members, and alumni, came together to complete a variety of service projects benefiting both local and national charities, as well as a school in Haiti. Projects included preparing food trays for homeless shelters, assembling infant supply packs for new fathers, and writing Valentine’s Day cards for residents of the Inglis House, among many others. This “day on” was an opportunity for students to learn about the value of giving back, and to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others devoted to service. Located in Bala Cynwyd, the French International School of Philadelphia is an independent pre-kindergarten through eighth grade school serving a multicultural community and providing a comprehensive bilingual curriculum in French and in English. It has participated in the Greater Philadelphia MLK Day of Service – the largest in the nation – for nineteen consecutive years.

See the April Verch Band on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at the Twentieth Century Club, 84 S. Lansdowne Avenue, Lansdowne, PA. From left are Cody Walters, April Verch and Alex Rubin. ansdowne Folk Club presents the April Verch Band on Thursday, January 25, 2018. Held at the Twentieth Century Club, 84 S. Lansdowne Avenue, Lansdowne, PA, doors open at 7 p.m. and show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $17 when purchased in advance online or with an advanced phone reservation and $20 without an advance reservation. Season Series is $90. Freshly prepared dinner and desserts will be available for an additional cost. Please notify the Club in advance if you plan to purchase a dinner.

For reservations, advance ticket sales or more information visit website, email or call 484-466-6213. Cash only accepted at the door. While April Verch is perhaps best known for playing traditional fiddle styles from her native Ottawa Valley, Canada, her performances extend into old-time American and Appalachian styles and beyond, for a well-rounded tour-de-force of North Americana sounds. Verch tours with world-class musicians as a trio, featuring acoustic guitar, mandolin, bass and clawhammer banjo in addition to Verch’s vocals, fiddle and foot percussion. One might suspect a performer with as many talents as Verch would pause to take a breath, or need to somewhat compartmentalize her skills during a live performance. But on stage, Verch is almost superhuman, flawlessly intertwining and overlapping different performative elements. She stepdances while fiddling. She sings while stepdancing. Sometimes she sings, steps and fiddles all at once, with apparent ease and precision. Verch is – as they say – a triple threat in performance, her live show a beautiful companion to her music: versatile, robust, and masterfully executed. Learn more about the band at Founded in 1993, the Lansdowne Folk Club is a 501(c) (3) all volunteer non-profit corporation dedicated to presenting folk, acoustic and blues music. The Lansdowne Folk Club was honored to be listed among the 35 Best Folk Music Venues in the US in 2017! Read more at Friend the club on Facebook Lansdowne Folk Club.
