A Weekend with Alan Jacobs at The Redeemer n March 2 and 3, 2019 at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Bryn Mawr, the author and cultural critic Alan Jacobs will offer a series of talks about his new book, “The Year of Our Lord 1943: Christian Humanism in an Age of Crisis.” By early 1943, it had become increasingly clear that the Allies would win the Second World War. Around the same time, it also became increasAuthor and cultural critic ingly clear to many Christian Alan Jacobs will offer a intellectuals on both sides of series of talks about his new the Atlantic that the soon-tobook on March 2 and 3, be-victorious nations were 2019 at the Episcopal not culturally or morally preChurch of the Redeemer pared for their success. A war in Bryn Mawr. won by technological superiority merely laid the groundwork for a post-war society governed by technocrats. These Christian intellectuals – Jacques Maritain, T. S. Eliot, C. S. Lewis, W. H. Auden, and Simone Weil, among others – sought both to articulate a sober and reflective critique of their own culture and to outline a plan for the moral and spiritual regeneration of their countries in the post-war world. In his new book, Alan Jacobs explores the work of these five central figures, in which they presented, with great imaginative energy and force, pictures of the very different paths now set before the Western democracies. Working mostly separately and in ignorance of one another’s ideas, the five developed a strikingly consistent argument that the only means by which democratic societies could be prepared for their world-wide economic and political dominance was through a renewal of education that was grounded in a Christian understanding of the power and limitations of human beings. In “The Year of Our Lord 1943” Jacobs weaves together the ideas of these five intellectuals and shows why, in a time of unprecedented total war, they all thought it vital to restore Christianity to a leading role in the renewal of the Western democracies. On Saturday, March 2, Dr. Jacobs will offer two talks beginning at 10 a.m.: “The Formation of Persons” and “Culture Catechizes.” He will offer a third talk, “Life Under Technocracy,” at 10:30 on Sunday, March 3. Registration for the Saturday sessions is requested. Visit www.TheRedeemer.org to register. The $15 registration fee includes lunch on Saturday. Registration is free for full time students. Alan Jacobs is a scholar of English literature, writer, and literary critic. He is a distinguished professor of the humanities in the Honors Program of Baylor University. He has written for publications including The Atlantic, First Things, The New Atlantis, The American Conservative, and The New Yorker and has authored numerous books, including “How to Think: A Survival Guide for a Word at Odds,” “The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography,” “Original Sin: A Cultural History,” and most recently, “The Year of our Lord 1943: Christian Humanism in an Age of Crisis.”

P IANIST S ARA D AVIS B UECHNER TO P ERFORM

Continued from front page

The affirmation is delivered through the journey of Frankie, a struggling, wanna-be hit songwriter, as he scours the city to find that next “Un4gettable” female voice. Along the way, he gloriously finds far more than he could have ever imagined. True to the show’s jukebox musical design, the journey of Frankie is in many ways the journey of its creator – the “real” Franke Previte—from aspiring New Jersey songwriter to Academy Award and Golden Globe winner for “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” a song that some 30 years on, remains one of the most frequently played in the world. Frank Dicopoulos, best known for his 22 years on The Guiding Light soap opera (Frank Achilles Cooper Jr.), plays the club owner, and is a CALLING ALL DIVAS producer. The “Un4gettable” Divas are led by Broadway performer and Radio City Rockette Lisa Sherman, favorite Philly R&B vocalist Carol Riddick (Jill Scott, Will Downing), Nashville siren Trenna Barnes (Cowboy Crush, Ring of Fire) and 20-year-old newcomer Brittneyann Accetta as the blossoming subway singer. “I wanted to develop a hybrid ― a concert that morphed into a play with a thread of a storyline that empowers these girls in ways that allow the audience to relate to each of them,” says Previte, Academy Award and Golden Globe winning composer of the Dirty Dancing smash hits, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” and “Hungry Eyes.” “We have a Broadway girl, a country girl, a gospel singer, and a young subway singer, and it’s just incredible to watch them seamlessly meld together into a group we call The Un4gettables. Each one is at the top of their own game, even this little subway singer. What blows me away, is the combination of their instant sisterhood and individual and collective power.” “I am so excited about the amazing singers you will all see and hear and the platinum songs they will deliver with such passion,” says D’Amico, who has produced a wide variety of concerts, theater, film, and recordings throughout the U.S. and the world. “It has been an honor working with Franke Previte, one of the nicest guys in the biz, our director, Michael LaFleur, and my other partner, Frank Dicopoulos, not to mention these four incredible women, as they find a wonderful common denominator, that together they are stronger, joyous and unforgettable! Be prepared for an uplifting experience.” You’ll have “The Time of Your Life!” CALLING ALL DIVAS is co-created and produced by Franke Previte. Director is Michael LaFleur. Executive producer is Dennis D’Amico. Musical director is Henry Aronson.

(The New York Times) and “thoughtful artistry in the full service of music,” (The Washington Post) and has been a soloist with the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and Philadelphia Orchestra and at such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and Hollywood Bowl. Spanning three centuries and continents, the March 2 program features Beethoven’s Sonata in C minor op. 13 “Pathétique,” Weber’s Sonata No. 1 in C major op. 24, Joaquín Nin-Culmell’s Danzas Cubanas, and Buechner’s own Escenas callejeras del Bronx. Performing Arts Series Coordinator Abigail Guay observes, “Sara Davis Buechner brings an incredible breadth of artistry and interest to her playing. This crowd-pleasing performance will highlight her trademark wit, eloquence, and gleeful technical assurance.” In her twenties Ms. Buechner earned top prizes at the world’s premier international piano competitions: Queen Elisabeth (Brussels), Leeds, Mozart (Salzburg), Beethoven (Vienna), and Sydney. She was a Bronze Medalist of the 1986 Tschaikowsky Competition in Moscow and the Gold Medalist of the 1984 Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition. Ms. Buechner has performed in every state and province of North America—as recitalist, chamber musician, and soloist with top orchestras like the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony and Philadelphia Orchestra; and in venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Hollywood Bowl. She has toured throughout Latin and South America and Europe; and she enjoys a special following in Asia, where she has been a featured soloist with the Sydney Symphony, New Zealand Philharmonic, New Japan Philharmonic, and Shanghai Philharmonic, among many others. She has commissioned and premiered important contemporary scores by composers such as Michael Brown, John Corigliano, Ray Green, Dick Hyman, Vitězslavá Kaprálová, Jared Miller, Joaquín Nin-Culmell, and Yukiko Nishimura. Ms. Buechner’s performance versatility extends to unique collaborations with film and dance, including tours with the Mark Morris Dance Group, and Japanese kabuki-mime-mask dancer Yayoi Hirano. Sara Davis Buechner joined the faculty of Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance in 2016 after previously teaching at the Manhattan School of Music, New York University, and the University of British Columbia. She has presented masterclasses and workshops at major pedagogic venues worldwide, adjudicated important international piano competitions, and is also a contributing editor for Dover Publications International. In 2017 Ms. Buechner marked her 30th year as a dedicated Yamaha Artist. Old Library at Bryn Mawr College is located at 212 N. Merion Avenue in Bryn Mawr, PA.

Objects in this “visible storage” section include two magical model boats (a sailboat and a rowboat) featured in the critically-acclaimed Smithsonian book “History of the World in 1,000 Objects,” a stunning turquoise-colored glazed ceramic ware necklace, the 2,000-year-old mummy of a young woman, and a child mummy that was recently CT scanned in partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

CITY SUBURBAN NEWS – Your Community Paper for 34 Years!

Colleen McCubbin Stepanic’s “Peak,” detail, (Westfield State University Installation), acrylic, ink, oil, enamel, canvas, thread, 2018. This is part of “MORPH,” the 15th Annual Betsy Meyer Memorial Exhibition, on view in Main Line Art Center’s galleries from March 2 through April 14. ain Line Art Center in Haverford has announced Bill Gerhard (Philadelphia, PA), Colleen McCubbin Stepanic (Philadelphia, PA) and Hanna Vogel (Philadelphia, PA) as the recipients of the Meyer Family Award for Contemporary Art. These artists, selected through a highly competitive application process by members of Main Line Art Center’s Artistic Advisory Board, are part of MORPH, the 15th Annual Betsy Meyer Memorial Exhibition, on view in the Center’s galleries from March 2 through April 14. Artist talks and an opening reception on Saturday, March 2, beginning at 5:30 p.m., are free and open to the public. Through their willingness to relinquish control, the artists in MORPH share a common understanding of the inevitable influence of time on the environments we inhabit, from the personal to the cosmic. Bill Gerhard allows natural elements like rain and snow to take control of the surface of his work, with unpredictable results. Colleen McCubbin Stepanic executes paintings in oil and acrylic, then dissects them, creating something wholly unique and unrecognizable: 2D work reborn as three dimensional sculpture. Hanna Vogel transforms commonplace materials, encouraging natural forces to affect the artistic outcome. Her forms evoke the infinite, organic cycle of growth and decay. Viewers are invited to consider the impact of elemental forces: how they affect creation and destruction to form something altogether new. These artists examine familiar and unfamiliar habitats that have overgrown, unraveled, eroded and morphed. “We are truly excited to recognize the talent of these three inspiring creators

Hanna Vogel’s “Was, Might Be,” steel wire, abaca and cotton paper, pigment rust, 2017. whose work is rooted in the examination of time, and the surrender of process to it,” said Thomas ScurtoDavis, Executive Director of Main Line Art Center. “We look forward to viewers witnessing the effects, and contemplate their deeper meaning.” Main Line Art Center is proud to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this annual exhibition in memory of teaching artist Betsy Meyer. As an artist, Betsy exemplified what is most exciting about engaging with the work of contemporary artists: supporting them as they experiment with their artistic practice to tackle complex subjects and create new understanding. As a teacher, she encouraged her students to expand their practice beyond the familiar, challenging them to blaze new trails with their art. Finally, as a member of Main Line Art Center’s Board and exhibition committee, she ensured that the Center was mindfully serving the interests of its students and community. The Meyer Family Award for Contemporary Art, presented by Main Line Art Center, in conjunction with the Betsy Meyer Memorial Exhibition, consists of an award of $1000 and a solo exhibition to each of three selected artists. This award and its associated exhibition exists to support the talented contemporary artists in the region, to honor deserving artists in the field, and to encourage excellence and experimentation in artistic practice, presentation, and community involvement. Main Line Art Center’s galleries are open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information visit www.mainlineart.org or call 610-525-0272.
