T

he Philadelphia Art
Alliance presents
the first lecture in
its Spring 2011 schedule
with its newest program
stream, The Common-
wealth. Continuing with
PAA’s new mission of
the advancement and
appreciation of contem-
porary craft and design,
The Commonwealth will
explore the current issues
pertaining to the modern
craft and design movement,
through panel discus-
sions and lectures by
artists, academics
and curators from
the notable craft
specific institu-
tions in the city
and the larger
Northeast Corri-
dor.
This series is
the product of
collaborations
between PAA and
nationally featured
artist/educator Doug
Bucci, who is serving
as Program Curator. In
the fall of 2010, the series
began with lectures deliv-
ered to packed houses by prominent curator David McFadden,
German jewelry artist Svenja John and Philadelphia Cultural
Entrepreneur Candy Depew.
The Spring 2011 schedule will begin on Thursday, February
10, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. with a lecture and presentation by
Melanie Bilenker, entitled “Objects of Memory: Commemora-
tion in the Modern Day.” In her lecture, Ms. Bilenker will
speak about the inspiration for her award-winning jewelry
and how traditional methods of commemoration affect
modern day makers. The event is open to the public, and
R
eed Kendall and his band, Up the
Chain, kick off 2011 with songs of jour-
ney, humanity, and a sense of place as
they release their new, first studio album,
Holy, Open, Drying Road. Kendall and many
in the Philadelphia music community will
gather for a triple album release show fea-
turing Up the Chain, Hezekiah Jones, and
Joe D’Amico with special guest Chris Bath-
gate. This show will take place on Thursday,
February 17 at 8 p.m., downstairs in the
World Café Live, 3025 Walnut Street, Philadel-
phia, PA 19104.
Kendall is influenced most by the poetic
imagery of Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), the
live performance of Dave Matthews (Dave
Matthews Band) and the songwriting of Jack
Johnson. As heard in Up the Chain’s live
performances and in their new album, their
acoustic rock sound leaves listeners feeling
energized but restless as Kendall moves
listeners through a variety of experiences
with a sense of youthful urgency. Holy, Open,
Drying Road features well-respected, Philadelphia-based musicians: Matt
Scarano (drums), Avery Coffee (electric guitar), Anam Owili-Eger (key-
board), and Phil D’Agostino (bass). Michael McShane of Cowmuddy and
Raphael Cutrefello of Hezekiah Jones also appear on the album.
Raised in Ardmore, PA, Reed Kendall has
been recording his original music since the
early age of 13. In 2004, he won free studio
time and released his first solo album, Shoot
Me Straight, while still in high school. After
quickly learning that tertiary education was
not for him, Reed left school and started
booking solo gigs at colleges and universi-
ties up and down the east coast.
In 2008, Reed settled back to Philadelphia
determined to start a band and became a
part of the rich community of musicians
there. In March 2008, under his current band,
Up the Chain, he released a 4-track demo
which immediately received airplay on WXPN.
Up the Chain began to play more frequent-
ly around town and eventually started selling out premier listening rooms
like MilkBoy Coffee and the Tin Angel, as well as opening a show at the
Kimmel Center for Lyle Lovett and playing to a sold out crowd at the Kes-
wick, opening for America. In 2009, the best
W
endel l Potter,
author, medi a
analyst and watch
dog, will speak at
Bryn Mawr Pres-
byterian Church
on Wednesday, February 16, at 12
p.m. In 2008, Potter walked away
from his job as head of communica-
tions at Cigna to help socially respon-
sible organizations – including those
advocating for meaningful health care
reform – achieve their goals. His book,
Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company
Insider Speaks Out on How Corporate
PR is Killing Health Care and Deceiv-
ing Americans (Bloomsbury Press
hardcover, November 2010) is an
expose of health insurers and a stark
warning that corporate spin is dis-
torting our democracy.
In widely covered testimony be-
fore the Senate Commerce, Science
and Technology Committee in June
of 2009, Potter disclosed how insur-
ance companies, as part of their ef-
forts to boost profits, have engaged
in practices that have resulted in
millions of Americans being forced
into the ranks of the uninsured.
Potter also described how the insur-
ance industry has developed and
implemented strategic communica-
tions plans, based on deceptive pub-
lic relations, advertising and lobbying
efforts, to defeat reform initiatives.
Since then Potter has testified be-
fore two House committees, briefed several members of Congress and their staffs, appeared
with members of Congress at several press conferences, spoken at more than 100 public
forums, and been the subject of numerous articles in the U.S. and foreign media.
Potter is currently a senior analyst at the The Center for Public Integrity, a non-partisan
nonprofit that produces original, responsible investigative journalism on issues of public
concern, and the senior fellow on health care for the Center for Media and Democracy, an
independent, non-partisan public interest organization. He speaks out on both the need
for a fundamental overhaul of the American health care

suit, watch and wonder about the “happy and sad balls,” pick out the polymers and so
much more.
Keep the wheels and axles turning, lift the levers, switch gears, and learn the ropes with
pulleys at Hagley’s “Easy Does It” exhibit! Kids will love to discover the amazing secrets
of machine technology.
Walk along the Brandywine to see how water power was used to run the mills. Stops
include a line shaft, dam, millrace, and a restored nineteenth-century machine shop. Learn
how gunpowder was tested using a device called an eprouvette—it will be an explosive
experience!

Melanie Bilenker received a BFA in Crafts, with a concen-
tration in Jewelry and Metalsmithing, from the University
of the Arts in 2000. Born in 1978 in Staten Island, New York,
she currently resides in Philadelphia, creating one-of-a-
kind jewelry and works on paper. Bilenker has carved a
singular niche in the world of modern craft with her ground-
breaking jewelry, using synthetic resin imbedded with
human hair follicles to create renderings of photographic
images, which are then set in traditional jewelry setting
such as lockets, brooches and rings.
Bilenker states about her work, “The Victorians kept lock-
ets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair
and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love. In much
the same way, I secure my memories through photographic
images rendered in lines of my own hair, the physical rem-
nants. I do not reproduce events, but quiet minutes, the
mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments.”

T
he Merion Concert Band will present its winter concert
on Sunday, February 13 at 3:00 p.m. at the Harriton
High School auditorium. The concert theme is “Something
Old, Something New,” and the band will present a world
premiere of Euphony for Amy, a concertino for euphonium
and winds composed by Lower Merion resident Dr. Lawrence
Blum. The euphonium solo will be played by Thomas H.
Elliott, Director of Instrumental Music at Lower Merion High
School.
Mr. Elliott, a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music has
performed as a trombonist with the Philadelphia Orchestra,
Pittsburgh Symphony, Pennsylvania Ballet and the Philadel-
phia Opera Company. He has been teaching at Lower Merion
High School since 1989, establishing a quality program that
has earned Lower Merion’s inclusion in the National Associa-
tion of Music Merchant’s prestigious list of 100 best schools
for music in the nation. His Maestro the Lion concerts,
originally bringing child-friendly classical music performances
to the district’s six elementary schools, have expanded to
include the formation of the Maestro the Lion Foundation
which continues this work involving elementary schools
throughout Philadelphia.
Recently, Mr. Elliott returned from Caracas, Venezuela
where he was teaching master trombone classes and ob-
serving first-hand El Sistema, an ambitious music project
begun in 1975 by Jose Antonia Abreu which offers hope
and transformation to the poorest communities in Vene-
zuela. A more detailed account of Mr. Elliott’s visit can
be found on the school district website at www.lmsd.org. As
reported on the web-site, “In Lower Merion, Elliott hopes to
build on the Maestro the Lion outreach effort with the
foundation’s help and begin an El Sistema inspired school
in Philadelphia at some point in the future. He also is work-
ing on hosting the Venezuelan Trombone Ensemble when
they tour the U.S. next spring.”
Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania and Training and Supervising Psycho-
analyst at the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia, Dr.
Blum wrote Euphony for Amy
in 2008 and it is his first com-
position. Dr. Blum played
trumpet in high school and
had no formal music training
after that time. His daughter
Amy played euphonium in
high school and it was at that
time that Dr. Blum was in-
spired to pen the piece.
“I’m surprised to have com-
posed this,” said Dr. Blum.
“I never thought I would or
could compose. I was com-
pletely immersed in the pro-
cess and would like to do it
again if I have time.” Dr. Blum
said he hopes the band and
the audience will have fun with it and that he would be pleased
if the piece found its way into the literature for euphonium.
“I hope people will find a use for it,” he added.
Euphony for Amy is in three movements with influences
derived from musical literature as well as real world sounds.
“My daughter’s cell phone ring tones are embedded in the
third movement,” said Dr. Blum. “I hear Gordon Jacob’s
William Byrd Suite in the first movement. The second
movement is conceived as a group of teenage girls talking
with each other; the movement ends cooperatively and
harmoniously after they all talk at once.”
Other selections represent a mix of contemporary and
older works including Windsprints (Saucedo), Dusk (Bryant),
Hungarian Dance No. 5 (Brahms), Courtly Airs and Dances
(Nelson) and Scenes from the Louvre (Dello Joio).
The February 13 concert is free and open to the public.
There is ample parking and the facility is wheelchair acces-
sible. For information, call 215-429-4142 or visit www.merion-
concertband.org.

Movie Night with Glen Macnow

T
he Players Club of Swarthmore Theater continues its
Second Stage season with a poignant comedy about a
blind date set in extreme circumstances. Recent Tragic
Events, by Craig Wright (of HBO’s Six Feet Under) opened
at the Players Club on January 28.
It’s the story of September 12, 2001 —as seen through the
eyes of a young Minneapolis advertising executive named
Waverly, who is soon to venture out on a blind date with
Andrew, a neurotic but charming bookstore manager. Andrew
arrives at Waverly’s apartment in the midst of television
news coverage of the September 11
th
attacks, and Waverly
becomes preoccupied when she discovers that her twin
sister, a student in New York, has not been heard from. With
constant flickering light from the television and a ringing
telephone that sends shivers down the spine, Recent Tragic
Events reminds us of what the world felt like on “the day after,”
but it does so with unexpected, sometimes side-splitting,
humor.
Director Noah Herman of Philadelphia says, “Recent Tragic
Events is a comedy, but it’s a comedy of deep human emo-
tion in all of its contrasting forms. I believe that comedy is
the best way we have in theatre of dealing with issues that
would otherwise be too deep or upsetting.”
Herman continues, “Few plays have ever affected me as
an audience member more deeply than Recent Tragic Events.
I first saw the play produced in 2004 by Philadelphia’s own
1812 Productions and I have wanted to explore it further
ever since.”
He put the show together with some talented help from
around the area: Siobhan Groves (Oreland) plays Waverly,
with Craig Copas (Philadelphia) as Andrew and Jimmy
Lepone (Philadelphia) teams up with Julie Grega (Mt. Airy)
to play the intrusive neighbors.
Recent Tragic Events performs on The Players Club of
Swarthmore’s Raymond W. Smith Second Stage. Upcoming
performances are February 4, 5, 11 and 12. All perfor-
mances start at 8:00 p.m. and admission is $10 at the door.
PLEASE NOTE: due to mature subject matter, this show is
not recommended for children younger than 13.
The Players Club of Swarthmore is an all-volunteer orga-
nization now in its 100
th
season. The theater is located at
614 Fairview Road, just off of route 320, only minutes from
I-95 and Route 476. There is plenty of free off-street parking.
For those taking public transit, the R3 Regional Rail line is
less than a mile from The Players Club, at the edge of the
Swarthmore College Campus.

F
rankie’s Fellini Café and Bakery
is a 50-seat Italian BYOB, located
in the Township Line Shopping Cen-
ter, Township Line and Burmont Roads.
Independently owned and operated
by Frank Chiavaroli, a graduate of the
Culinary Institute of America, and
his business partner Rita Marone, the
restaurant brings a warm and friendly
taste of South Philly to Drexel Hill.
“When guests are in the restau-
rant, I want them to feel that they are in my
home, and I welcome them the same way I
do my friends and family,” South Philly na-
tive Rita Marone said, as we settled down
to order dinner. “Our Italian dishes are very
ethnic,” she added. “The meatballs are made
from my Grandmother’s recipe.”
A loaf of hot home-baked bread with a
plate of extra virgin olive to dip it in began
our meal followed by a small plate of two
slices of crusty crunchy garlic flavored
Bruschetta ($5.95) topped with chopped
tomatoes and shaved parmesan cheese slices
with a mound of roasted red peppers and
black olives over micro greens was a nice
beginning to our Italian dinner.
A cup of homemade chicken vegetable
soup filled with chunks of chicken and ten-
der tiny pasta shells was included with our
meal.
Frankie’s full menu contained all of the
standard Italian dishes separated into Anti-
pasti, Insalata, Pasta, Panini, Carne & Pesce,
and Pizza—over 120 different dishes to choose
among; however, we chose our entrees from
the specials list that changes nightly.
My dining companion chose the eight-
ounce veal chop ($26.95) with roasted pota-
toes and asparagus; the flavorful chop was
fork-tender and cooked medium as ordered.
“All our meats come from Esposito’s in
South Philly,” Rita told me.
I ordered the broiled orange roughy ($24)
with crabmeat over roasted vegetables that brought a
moist and flavorful white fish fillet topped with chunks of
sweet crab over a mound of roasted broccoli, onions, zuc-
chini, and red peppers. The portion was very generous and
I took half of it home to eat the next day.
A third of the restaurant is taken up with full length glass
bakery cases filled with pastries prepared by Ron, Frankie’s
in-house pastry chef.
“When we took over the restaurant in November 2009, it
was formerly a bakery, so we decided to continue operat-
ing it,” Rita said. “We bake birthday cakes to order, Italian
rum cakes, tiramisu, coffee cakes, sticky buns, jelly rolls,
hamantaschen, cookies, cannolis, biscotti, and South Philly
Square cheese cakes to name a few of the varieties in our
bakery show cases.”
For dessert, we ordered a slice of tiramisu ($8) that brought
a richly made and delicious confection of whipped cream,
Mascarpone cheese, eggs, sugar,
espresso coffee, ladyfingers, liquor,
and cocoa. We also tried a scoop of
Chocolate Gelato ($6) served in a
wine glass with chocolate chips
mixed into this chocoholic’s delight.
Frankie’s Fellini Café serves Break-
fast, Lunch, and Dinner daily. The

T
he Center for Emerging Visual Artists, in cooperation
with The Galleries at Moore, presents Introduction 2011,
an exhibition of work by the newest Career Development
Program Fellows at The Center for Emerging Visual Artists
(CFEVA). The exhibition, presented at the Widener Founda-
tion Memorial Gallery at Moore College of Art and Design,
is open February 2 - 19, 2010 with an Opening Reception
on Wednesday, February 2 from 6 - 8 p.m. Gallery hours
for this exhibition are Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. - 7:00
p.m., Saturday, 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
CFEVA’s Career Development Program is a highly selective
fellowship with only a 3% acceptance rate. This year’s ap-
plicant pool was 333 artists with just 9 new Fellows being
selected. These nine artists represent some of the most
promising talent among emerging artists in the region: Arden
Bendler Browning, Lewis Colburn, Don Edler, Mami Kato,
Daniel Kornrumpf, Maggie Mills, Alison Stigora, Jennifer
Williams, and Kimberly Witham.
CFEVA’s Newest Career Development Program Fellows:
• Arden Bendler Browning is a Philadelphia-based artist
who makes large, mural-sized paintings on tyvek. Her works
are a direct response to her experience of the urban envi-
ronment—overlapping, noisy, and fluctuating.
• Lewis Colburn is a Philadelphia-based artist whose in-
stallation works deal with the manipulation of history and
recreating scenes from the past in order to explore them in
contemporary life.
• Don Edler is a sculpture artist based in Brooklyn. Hav-
ing a strong interest in the structure of the universe, as well
as the cosmos and physics, his sculptures examine these
phenomena in hopes of understanding them.
• Mami Kato, originally from Japan, is a sculpture artist
currently based in Philadelphia. Her sculptures combine
influences from memories of rice fields in Japan and quan-
tum cosmology.
• Daniel Kornrumpf, based in Yardley, PA, is an artist with
experience in painting and furniture design, but currently
expresses himself through embroideries. His works are in-
fluenced by social networking—how we view ourselves per-
sonally, as well as, how we are all similar and connected.
• Maggie Mills is a painter based in North Wales, PA. Fas-
cinated by the often blurred lines between the natural and
industrial, her work depicts contemporary ruin: decompo-
sition of nature and industry, technology’s effect on time
and space, and the individual in current society.
• Alison Stigora, a West Chester-based artist, explores
creation and the creative process through visceral materials,
site-specific fabrications, and drawing. Stigora uses branch-
es, which have been blackened, to create physical lines in
3D works and as charcoal in her drawings.
• Jennifer Williams is an installation artist based in New
York. Living in a constant state of flux, we are unable to
observe every space we walk through. Williams highlights
what we often overlook so that, in the future, we are more
aware of our environments.
• Kimberly Witham is a photographer based in High Bridge,
NJ. Her contemporary home-magazine-style photographs
look at suburban comfort and the tension of humans and
nature contrasted with the aftermath of our consumption.
Artists are selected for CFEVA’s two-year Career Develop-
ment Fellowship by CFEVA’s renowned Board of Artistic
Advisors. While active in the program, the artists have op-
portunities to experience a full exhibition schedule, receive
career counseling and mentorship, earn money from the
sale of their work, teach in the community, and participate
in numerous professional development opportunities. The
Career Development Program serves artists living within a
100-mile radius of Philadelphia. In addition to CFEVA’s gal-
lery spaces at 1521 Locust Street and The Barclay, CDP
Fellows have exhibited at noteworthy venues including the
Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Delaware Center for the
Contemporary Arts, the Philadelphia International Airport,
and the Maryland Institute College of Art.
The Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA) dedicates
itself to making art careers viable for those who choose
them, helping emerging artists reach their audiences, and
promoting interest and understanding of emerging visual
art among citizens of the community.
The Center For Emerging Visual Artists, formerly Creative
Artists Network, was founded in Philadelphia in 1983 to
encourage the professional development and community
involvement of emerging visual artists. The organization’s
founder was a beloved figure in the Philadelphia arts com-
munity, Felicity R. “Bebe” Benoliel, who dedicated herself
to fostering the careers of talented artists. Since her death
in 2000, the organization has remained true to her nurtur-
ing spirit while building both the depth and reach of its
programming. CFEVA now serves artists through three
complementary programs: Career Development, Regional
Community Arts, and Philadelphia Open Studio Tours.
Introduction 2011 will be on view at Moore College of Art
& Design at the Widener Foundation Memorial Gallery, locat-
ed at 20th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Phila-
delphia PA 19103. For information, contact Amie Potsic at
amie@cfeva.org or 215-546-7775 ext. 12.

D
o you have a favorite hill you love to sled down after a
blizzard? How about a steep street you dread climbing
on your daily run? If so, you’ve already studied topography
and mentally mapped the Earth’s surface. Topography is the
study of the Earth’s surfaces, both natural and man-made.
From the deepest depths of the oceans, to the summit of
Mount Everest – and everything in between – topography
details the earth’s exterior. Fairmount Water Works Inter-
pretive Center’s (FWWIC) free February educational programs
focuses on the world of topography.
Science Saturdays are free and open to the public on
February 5, 12, 19 and 26 from 2 - 4 p.m. at half hour inter-
vals. The Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center is lo-
cated at 640 Waterworks Drive in Philadelphia. For infor-
mation call 215-685-0723.
Families will talk, see and touch topography through
interactive experiments by FWWIC educators at the Inter-
pretive Center’s state-of-the-art lab. Gain a scientific under-
standing of our planet’s outermost layer in a fun, light-heart-
ed atmosphere that will open your eyes to the fascinating
features of the Earth’s terrain. Families are also invited to
learn more about watersheds and how they are formed.
In addition to Science Saturdays, FWWIC’s Sunday Movie
Matinee will screen “Flushed Away” each Sunday in Febru-
ary at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. in the Interpretive Center’s theater.
This 2006 animated film features the voices of Hugh Jackman
and Kate Winslet. It’s the tale of an uptown rat that gets
flushed down the toilet from his penthouse apartment, end-
ing in the sewers of London, where he has to learn a whole
new way of life. Come enjoy this 125-minute film for free with
friends and family in what becomes the oldest “movie the-
ater” in the city each Sunday.
“Local families will be fascinated to learn about the moun-
tains, hills, plains, glaciers, and waters that make up the
Earth’s surface.” says Karen Young, director of FWWIC.
“Between the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers and our high-
est elevation at Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia has some inter-
esting topography that people usually don’t take the time
to notice. We hope that through Science Saturdays, we can
spread interest in the world of topography.”
The Fairmount Water Works, the ideal location to learn
more about the life in the river, was constructed in 1812 to
pump water out of the Schuylkill River. Almost from the
day the waterwheels began turning, the graceful neoclassi-
cal buildings and beautiful grounds made the place an inter-
national tourist attraction renowned for melding nature
and technology. Today the Fairmount Water Works Inter-
pretive Center is the Delaware River Basin’s watershed
education hub, offering visitors information about the impact
of water on their daily lives and how they in turn impact
their water supplies. Located off Kelly Drive in Philadelphia’s
East Fairmount Park, the Interpretive Center features a
variety of hands-on, highly interactive exhibits including a
live view of the Fairmount Dam fish ladder and a flyover of
the Schuylkill River watershed. For information, visit
www.fairmountwaterworks.com.

t’s not often that the audience for an event celebrating a
book’s launch and its message not only become the next
book’s writers, but also the stars of the next event. But that’s
the story behind the new book Sunshine Sisters: A Celebra-
tion of Legacies (Volume 1),”and its launch at the Sunshine
Sisters Idol event on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 from
6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at West Chester University.
The birth of the book goes back to October 13, 2010 when
over 100 women filled a tent at Historic Waynesborough for
the Molly Sunshine Tour. Molly Nece, author of Chasing
Stars in the Sunshine, and three other books, had assembled
a group of speakers to inspire women to live their legacies
and enjoy life’s adventures. Despite the chill in the air,
attendees were warmed by the energy and motivation from
the speakers and each other.
Nece knew that she had to capture the group’s vitality and
turn it into something that would make a difference. “Just
three days after the Sunshine Tour I decided I was going to
give the Sunshine Sisters in the audience an opportunity
to share their stories,” says Nece. So she invited them each
to write a chapter in Sunshine Sisters: A Celebration of Legacies
(Volume 1.) “The energy, honesty and wisdom these women
share in the stories selected is inspiring,” says Nece. “Their
personalities, passions, struggles and joys leap off the pages.
I have no doubt that the tales will encourage others to live
with purpose, passion and persistence.”
The women featured in the book represent a patchwork
of American life. As Sally Miller, one of the authors, says
“there are billions of people on this planet, but no two are
the same. There is only one you in the entire world and there
will never be another. You are one of a kind.” This unique-
ness is exemplified in the book’s writers who include
daughters of first-generation immigrants and close knit
families, as well as the daughters of an unwed mother, an
alcoholic father, and more. While these women do not fol-
low straight and narrow paths to success and happiness,
what weaves their stories together is how they correct
their courses, overcome obstacles and set themselves on
the road to rediscover their passions, share their talents,
develop self esteem, and savor family ties.
The book’s authors will now each have five minutes to
share their stories at the Sunshine Sister Idol event. Authors
include, Diane Catrambone, Julie Frieswyk, Carolyn Frith,
Cynthia Goch, Sally Miller, Ann Murphy, Lara Pietras, Anne
Sourbeer Morris, Audra Supplee, and Edie Weinstein. As
on American Idol, official judges will make comments on
the Sunshine Sisters’ presentations; however, the audience
will decide who is chosen to present at the Sunshine Tour
on October 12, 2011. Judges include Tracy Davidson,
NBC10 news anchor, Marilyn Russell, radio personality for
95.7 BEN FM, Dave Magrogan, speaker, author, serial entre-
preneur and restaurateur, and Carolyn Comitta, West Chester
Pennsylvania’s mayor.
Tickets for the Sunshine Sister Idol event, which includes
a copy of the book, can be purchased for $25 at www.Molly-
SunshineTour.com. Books can also be purchased separate-
ly for $10 each. For information call 484-888-6191.

he Opera Company of Philadelphia (OCP) will open its
doors to area families for the PNC Arts Alive Family Day
at the Opera on Saturday, February 12 from 10 a.m. through
4 p.m. at the Academy of Music, Broad and Locust Streets.
Visitors of all ages will have the chance to journey behind
the scenes of the Company’s upcoming production of Gounod’s
Romeo and Juliet (February 11-20) and learn about the art
of opera through a day of interactive programs.
From face-painting and stage combat demonstrations to
a fashion show and live performances, this free event offers
something for every member of the family. Registration is
required, either online or in person at the event. For details
and to register, visit www.operaphila.org/PNC.
Throughout the day, parents, children, and attendees of
all ages are invited to tread the stage of Philadelphia’s grand
opera house and explore Romeo’s set, visit the stars’ dress-
ing rooms, sit in the orchestra pit, and learn the history of
the Academy’s rehearsal hall and its stunning ballroom.
In the morning, toddlers will experience opera for the first
time through the fairytale of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. The
program features a performance of the opera’s iconic col-
oratura soprano aria, Der Hölle Rache, sung by the Queen
of the Night.
Then, stage fight choreographer Charles Conwell will show
older children what it’s like to create the feuds between the
warring fashion houses in Romeo and Juliet. This demon-
stration will show how he choreographs a scene and the
importance of rehearsal and safety.
Teenagers will learn about the many creative career paths
in the world of opera at the Opera Career Fair. Set, costume,
lighting designers and makeup artists will be on-site to ex-
plain how they prepare for a performance and answer
questions about working in the industry.
OCP Executive Director David B. Devan shares, “By allow-
ing young people an in-depth look into the world of opera,
we hope to provide a unique understanding of the art form
and its creation. Thanks to the generosity of PNC Arts Alive,
we are able to bring this fantastic opportunity to local fam-
ilies through the PNC Arts Alive Family Day at the Opera.”
Romeo and Juliet runs February 11, 13 (mat.), 16, 18 & 20
(mat.) at the Academy of Music. This new production paints
the Capulets and Montagues as dueling fashion houses.
Against a backdrop of models, paparazzi and high style,
Romeo and Juliet’s love for each other unfolds to its dead-
ly conclusion. The production features rising international
stars and real-life spouses, Stephen Costello and Ailyn Pérez,
and is led by Director Manfred Schweigkofler and Maestro
Jacques Lacombe.
PNC Arts Alive is a five-year, $5 million initiative from the
PNC Foundation, which receives its principal funding from
The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. (NYSE: PNC). The
goal of PNC Arts Alive is to help area residents gain access
to the arts, and to help arts organizations expand and engage
audiences.
For tickets to OCP’s remaining 2011 productions of Romeo
and Juliet, Tosca and Phaedra, call Ticket Philadelphia at
215-893-1018 or www.operaphila.org.

T
he first production of 2011 at The Stagecrafters theater
is the satirical and slickly sophisticated comedic classic,
Private Lives by the inimitable Noël Coward, which opens
on Friday, February 4. The play takes the viewer back to
the fashionable world of the rich and idle during the late
1920s, to witness the antics and indiscretions of Elyot and
Amanda Chase, formerly married to each other, both now
newly-wed (to others!). Tempers flare, sparks erupt, barbs
and zingers fly ... onetime spouses spinning in a whirlwind
of love and hate. In this delicious take on marital passions
battle lines are drawn, and combat, both verbal and physi-
cal, turns to wicked farce. An enduring favorite from the
acknowledged master of the quip, Private Lives gives fresh
meaning to ‘over-the-top.’
Noël Coward (1899-1973) rose from modest circumstances
to become one of England’s foremost playwrights, renowned
for his wit, flamboyance, and a consummate sense of per-
sonal style. He published more than fifty plays, many of
which are seen regularly in the theatrical repertoire, and
also composed hundreds of songs and well over a dozen
musical theatre works. The first Broadway production of
Private Lives, in which Coward himself co-starred along with
musical theatre legend Gertrude Lawrence, ran for 236
performances in 1931. Over the years that play has enjoyed
no less than six New York productions, the most recent of
which in 2002 was awarded the Tony for Best Revival of a
Play.
Rhonda Goldstein, of Wynnewood, comes to The Stage-
crafters for the first time in a directing capacity, but she
has been acting with the group since 2006, when she was
cast as the governess Charlotta in The Cherry Orchard. Over
the past four seasons she portrayed the quirky Louisa in
Ladies in Retirement and the wisecracking Edith in Jake’s
Women, in addition to performing in two productions in
the Reader’s Theater series, The Last days of Judas Iscariot
and Dinner with Friends. Rhonda has also stepped behind
the scenes to stage manage the productions of Night Watch
and The Night of the Iguana. Her directing accomplishments
elsewhere comprise nearly thirty productions, some favorites
of which include Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Blithe Spirit,
Blood Brothers, Mere Mortals, and Flowers for Algernon.
Rhonda is the Faculty Advisor and Artistic Director of the
Gemini Theatre Company at Philadelphia University, and
she holds the M.A. in Theatre from Villanova University
and a B.A. in Theatre and Communications from Emerson
College.
Performance dates are February 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18,
19 at 8 p.m., February 6, 13, 20 at 2 p.m. Tickets are avail-
able at $16 Online (no service charge), $20 at-door. (Thurs-
day evening performances are “2 for $25”). Students with
valid ID $13 at door. Groups of 15 or more are offered a re-
duced rate of $13 a ticket, paid in advance. The box office
opens 45 minutes before each performance. A “Meet the
Cast and Director” Q & A session will be held following the
performance on Friday, February 11. All attendees that
evening are welcome.
For information call 215-247-8881; for reservations-direct
call 215-247-9913. The theater is located in the heart of
Chestnut Hill at 8130 Germantown Avenue. For details

January 23, 2009
at 7 p.m. Chanlan
Lee, age 8, pass-

a severe case of
viral encephali-
tis. He was the
youngest schol-
arship student
at the Nelly Ber-

Music and quite
an accomplished
violinist for his
young age.
Chanlan had a
deep passion for
music that was transparent and vibrant. He was involved
in not only solo performances, but chamber groups and
intensive summer camps. His hard work paid off when he
was the youngest soloist chosen to perform on the stage
at the Kimmel Center as a platinum winner of the NBS Golden
Key Competition. In addition to his heart for playing, he was
also dedicated to the scholarship program that supplement-
ed his lesson fees. To show his appreciation, he took initia-
tive to raise funds, over $300 to be exact, by playing in his
parents’ restaurant in the Chinatown section of Philadelphia.
The January 23 concert will be held at Centennial Hall at
The Haverford School, 450 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford,
from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. The event, showcasing students and
professional musicians, will commemorate Chanlan’s love
and passion for music and life. A donation of $15 per adu
and $10 per child is suggested. All proceeds will benefi

a scholarship to a gifted violin student, from around th
ion with adequate lessons to foster their talent.
