SPRING 2023

25TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON

STUDENTS

DEAR FRIENDS, TICKETS

As Zoellner Arts Center looks to celebrate its past 25 years and envisions the next 25, we want to pause and thank you, our supporters. Each of you helped move us forward during uncertain times. We received your encouragement and generous gifts, and you notably returned to our beautiful arts center.

There are now many opportunities to find joy at Zoellner: watch as a thousand public school children visit with awe and wonder; listen as choral and music ensembles' notes soar in Baker Hall; smile as theatre students busily hone their craft in the Fowler Black Box and Diamond Theater; admire hundreds of students from across campus rehearsing for Dancefest in Butz Lobby; appreciate new perspectives at a LUAG exhibit; and share in the exuberance of Presenting Series performances by world-class artists such as Michael Feinstein, Postmodern Jukebox, and the New York Philharmonic — who graced our stage this past fall.

This spring offers several multi-disciplinary cultural programs. Third Coast Percussion and Flutronix present their contemporary new composition Rubix. The talented guzheng artist Wu Fei joins us for a residency and performs Hello Gold Mountain accompanied by students in Lehigh University's Philharmonic and Choir under the direction of Professor Paul Salerni. Easton native and Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams' film, Traveling While Black, is the centerpiece of a free virtual reality experience lobby installation.

Our 25th milestone also celebrates the legacy of individuals and families whose vision and generosity helped establish Zoellner (see page 11). In the early 1990s, they embraced university leadership's vision to bring arts to the forefront of our community with a 'dramatic new facility destined to become a major landmark.' Years later, Tony Bennett said this right after he sang Fly Me to the Moon a cappella in Baker Hall, "Listen to that, they don't build them like this anymore. It's really beautiful. The acoustics in here are amazing." We agree, Mr. Bennett.

Be sure to save April 15, 2023, for the return of our spectacular Gala with The Philadelphia Orchestra and special guest conductor Keith Lockhart, featuring Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell, and a free outdoor performance by vertical dance innovators Bandaloop.

How grateful and excited I am to be the Executive Director of Zoellner Arts Center at this moment in time. We celebrate the impact we've had over the last 25 years and look forward to the next 25 of engaging and connecting with you in and beyond our building.

Zoellner Arts Center | Butz Lobby

Traveling While Black is presented as an artistic installation that recreates the setting of Ben’s Chili Bowl in Washington, D.C.

• Attendees receive a replica copy of The Green Book, a travel guide established in the 1930s published exclusively for Black motorists in need of ‘friendly’ establishments across the United States. Subject to availability.

A Virtual Reality Experience

Traveling While Black is a film by Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams and Emmy Award-winning Felix & Paul Studios that transports viewers to historic Ben's Chili Bowl diner in Washington, D.C. Viewers share an intimate series of moments with several of Ben’s patrons as they reflect on their experiences of restricted movement and race relations in the United States. Confronting the way we understand and talk about race in America, Traveling While Black highlights the urgent need to not only remember the past but to learn from it, and to facilitate a dialogue about the challenges minority travelers still face today.

LIGHTWIRE THEATER

THE ADVENTURES OF TORTOISE AND HARE: THE NEXT GENERATION

Fanciful lights adorn characters in Aesop’s classic fable, but there’s a contemporary twist: the story hops 10 years down the road, where Tortoise and Hare have children of their own who explore modern day distractions like smart phones and video games. Their adventures lead them into unexpected territory. Old Man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare must come together despite their differences to find and save their children.

WU FEI HELLO GOLD MOUNTAIN

Wu Fei is a renowned master of the guzheng, the 21-string Chinese zither, an instrument dating back 2,500 years. This original composition is performed by members of the Lehigh University Philharmonic conducted by Professor Paul Salerni, featuring Wu Fei on guzheng and Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz on oud — the traditional Chinese and Jewish plucked string instruments. The work is inspired by real stories of Jewish refugees who fled to Shanghai from Europe before and during World War II, and built lives in China.

PADDINGTON GETS IN A JAM

11:00am

In this original slapstick comedy, the loveable Paddington goes next door to borrow a cup of sugar from his neighbor Mr. Curry, who is in a panic because he’s expecting a visit from his Great Aunt Matilda. Paddington volunteers to help Mr. Curry with his to-do list before her imminent arrival. Throughout the afternoon, Paddington attempts items on the list—repair the pipes in the bathroom, vacuum the floors, install new wallpaper, bake a cake—but in typical Paddington fashion nothing goes to plan!

ZEPHYR – A WHIRLWIND OF CIRCUS

Witness Cirque Mechanics' unique interpretation of the unrelenting tug of war between man and nature in the name of progress. Humans have been harnessing the power of the wind for thousands of years. The beauty and efficacy of that timeless and ingenious process inspired the creative team to create Zephyr. This theatrical circus show harnesses human power instead of wind to generate an energetic, acrobatic experience.

SILENT SKY

FEB 24, 25 maR 1* – 4 | 7:30pm • FEB 26 | 2pm

When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories.

The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both heavens and Earth.

When Gracia’s words launch Mariza into gaining a following as a Latinx artist and activist, their friendship is tested by issues of privilege and cultural appropriation. Part play, part poetry slam, Brown Face follows a group of college students as they navigate their identities in the competitive world of spoken word poetry.

THE PERCY JACKSON MUSICAL

Adapted from the book The Lightning Thief by Rick

SaT maR 25 | 7:30pm

Fowler Black Box Theatre FREE; No tickets required

The Greek gods are real, and they’re ruining Percy Jackson’s life. As a son of Poseidon, Percy has newly discovered powers he can’t control, monsters on his trail, and he is on an epic quest to find Zeus’s lightning bolt and prevent a war between the gods. This rock musical is “mesmerizing” and proves “lightning can strike twice!”

LOOM:FIELD

Artistic Director: Melecio Estrella

FREE OUTDOOR PERFORMANCE - Public Welcome

Location: Lehigh University Fairchild-Martindale Library | 8A Packer Ave.

BANDALOOP honors nature, community, and the human spirit through perspective-bending dance. An innovator in vertical performance, BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography and climbing technology to turn the dance floor on its side.

As a dance form that relies on state-of-the-science woven nylon climbing ropes, LOOM:FIELD locates BANDALOOP’s core technical framework in a textile lineage. As one of the largest polluting industries in the world, fraught with devastating globalized labor and farming practices, the impact of clothing and fashion is often overlooked in our modern consumer lifestyles. The fallout of our textile consumption will be dealt with for generations to come. LOOM:FIELD juxtaposes this large-scale ecological crisis with the timeless cross cultural power of fabric to hold, comfort, adorn and sanctify the human experience.

ABOUT US

Zoellner Arts Center at Lehigh University | Celebrating 25 Years

Over 25 years ago, Lehigh University had a vision to design a vibrant arts environment where students, artists, faculty and community could create and learn. It wanted to educate, captivate and inspire performers and patrons by presenting a variety of outstanding performing arts events, exhibits and educational programs, and developing new works. In 1997, this vision manifested in Zoellner Arts Center—home to the Presenting Series, Lehigh University Music Department, the Department of Theatre, and the Art Galleries—a place for creativity and innovation; for exploring all corners of artistic disciplines; and for opening up minds to new ideas and new ways of seeing the world.

In a recent year, the center held 240 events, including over 350 artists from 10 countries, and more than 50 campus and community events, lectures, business meetings, convocations, recitals, concerts, conventions and more. In total, the center provided arts engagement and communal space to over 55,000 people in attendance from 12 states and to over 3,000 local school children. Additionally, we created partnerships with 35 community organizations in the arts, sciences, health and literacy.

As we step forward, Zoellner Arts Center will continue building organizational partnerships like those achieved as the lead organization for the Kennedy Center’s Ensuring the Arts for Any Given Child program in Bethlehem. We will further expand into the community by focusing on K-12 education to deliver arts enrichment programs, cultural programs, social-emotional learning programming, and artist-in-residencies specifically tied to school curriculum.

Zoellner Arts Center strives to go beyond our four walls and challenge people to think while encouraging them to see the world through a different lens to connect and understand our community. We seek to be a leader in the arts and culture scene in the Lehigh Valley by being bold, forward-thinking, innovative, and by bringing our diverse community together through shared experiences. We are dedicated to presenting arts for all through being inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible.
