Manhattan Piano Trio Thursday, September 20 7:30 p.m.

Hailed by critics as “a grand departure from the usual” (News Herald), the Manhattan Piano Trio (MPT) has quickly become one of the most creative, exciting, and dynamic young ensembles in the United States. With more than 500 performances since its inception in 2004, MPT is one of the most active groups in the classical music scene, welcomed by enthusiastic audiences in more than 35 American states, Italy, South Africa and Australia.

The Washington Post described the MPT as “impressive” and “outstanding,” while the Sarasota Herald Tribune said, “One seldom is privileged to enjoy music of such a wide range of styles performed with self-effacing skill and relaxed assurance.” The Trio comprises Milana Strezeva (piano), Wayne Lee (violin) and Dmitry Kouzov (cello), all award winning soloists in their own right.

Art Exhibitions Andrew Heisey

Tuesday, September 25 through Friday, October 19 Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 25 4:30-6 p.m.

Andrew Heisey, assistant professor of art at Waynesburg University, has exhibited work throughout Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. His sculptures have been featured at the State Museum of Pennsylvania, on the cover of Messiah College Magazine, at Elizabethtown College art galleries, at Bloomsburg University’s Haas Gallery, The Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery and several other galleries in Philadelphia.

With this gallery exhibition, Professor Heisey illustrates the development of one’s personality by combining old objects into something new. Often these “new” objects take the form of fragmented figures. The lack of a whole figure compels the viewer to focus on the object itself and not the person. While looking at the fragmented parts, one may recognize some of the objects within the sculpture - a rock fragment, a bit of metal from some wiring, or even pottery shards. According to Heisey, as the viewer identifies some of the objects imbedded in the sculptures, a picture of what that object once was appears in their mind. Heisey says it is as if the object stirs up a memory of something long lost and a sense of preservation of the past is conveyed - old memories preserved in resin or clay. Prior to coming to Waynesburg University, Heisey served as a high school art teacher at Harrisburg Christian School in Harrisburg, Pa., and adjunct professor of art at Messiah College in Grantham, Pa.

Fall Play: “Arsenic and Old Lace” by Joseph Kesselring

Wednesday, October 24 through Saturday, October 27 7:30 p.m.

“Arsenic and Old Lace” is a classic American comedy and has been a popular play since its premiere in the 1940s. In it we meet Aunt Abby and Aunt Martha, two sweet and charming little old ladies who rent rooms to elderly widowers. The aunts have three nephews. Teddy, one of the nephews, believes he is President Theodore Roosevelt, and the second, Mortimer, is a newspaper columnist who discovers a secret about the aunts and in turn must work very hard to keep things quiet. Jonathan, the third nephew, is a wanted man who comes to the home to hide out. Trying to get rid of Jonathan, protecting the aunts, and wondering if Teddy will charge San Juan Hill becomes the chaos that has kept “Arsenic and Old Lace” a favorite among audiences for decades.

Collegium Musicum

Friday, October 12 and Friday, November 30 4 p.m.

Georg Philipp Telemann founded this great tradition in 1702 for music students at the University in Leipzig, Germany. This early ‘coffeehouse’ offering was later associated with Johann Sebastian Bach. Telemann continued to foster the emergence of public subscription concerts in both Frankfurt and Hamburg collegia in the late 1720s. With Moravian immigration, American collegia sprang up as early as 1744 in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and the Carolinas.

This event is one in a series of presentations of musical knowledge and skills acquired by student musicians seeking major and minor degrees in music. During the course of musical study at Waynesburg University, the Collegium Musicum experiences pave the way for senior recital presentations. Each student musician will present a work from a body of standard repertoire for their instrument/ voice, and will host a brief question and answer period after his/her presentation. No reservations are necessary for this event..
