he longest-running show in the history of Broadway will make its way to Saint Joseph’s University next month, when the Cap & Bells Dramatic Arts Society closes its 83rd season with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece The Phantom of the Opera. The show, which is the first university-level performance in the Philadelphia region, opens Thursday, April 7 at 8 p.m. and runs through Sunday, April 17. Written by Webber and Charles Hart, the musical opened on Broadway in 1988 and won six Tony Awards that year, including Best Musical. It has since been seen by more than 100 million people worldwide in productions in 149 cities. Renee Dobson, M.F.A., the show’s director and an associate professor of fine and performing arts, acknowledged the test of putting on a show as well-known as Phantom. “It’s iconic,” she said. “This cast has never lived in a world without it on Broadway, and it’s a difficult enough show to perform without so many people knowing it. It has been a pleasure watching them rise to the challenge.” To help scale the grandiose production to a more manageable size for Bluett Theater, Dobson enlisted the help of

It is defined as the illegal trade in human beings for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor. Vulnerable persons, mainly women and children, are forced – sometimes at the threat of violence – to be separated from their families, to go places they don’t want to go, and to do things they don’t want to do. In essence, human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery. Trafficking is also a lucrative industry. It has been identified as the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. Typically wrapped up with the illegal arms trade, trafficking is considered the second largest global criminal activity (next to the drug trade), with total annual revenues for trafficking in persons estimated to be between 5 billion and 9 billion in U.S. dollars. Palmer Seminary of Eastern University is attempting to do its part to raise awareness of the issue and to point caring people toward solutions. The Seminary is hosting an event on Tuesday, April 5, beginning at 12 noon with a free pizza lunch in the Seminary’s Woodruff Learning Center. Lunch will be followed by the 12:30 screening of the film “Call and Response.” Then Jamé Bolds, of the anti-trafficking organization F.R.E.E.

In his forward in Don’t Count on It!, former Federal Reserve vice-chairman Alan S.

His first book, Bogle on Mutual Funds: New Perspectives/or the Intelligent Investor has been a best-selling investment book since its publication in 1993.

Lyric Fest’s own soprano Randi Marrazzo performs the 3rd and 4th of the Quatre poèmes Hindous by Maurice Delage, set to the poetry by the 7th century Bhartrihari, and Le bestiaire by Poulenc. Joining the cast for the first time, Lois Bliss Herbine is a solo piccolo artist on Crystal Records who has served as principal flute for Peter Nero’s Philly Pops and was a backup artist for SONY artists John Legend and Il Divo. Cellist Lynne Bratlie Beiler has performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra and recorded under Riccardo Muti and Wolfgang Sawallisch; she can be regularly heard with the Philadelphia Opera orchestra, the Pennsylvania Ballet orchestra, and the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia. “Stranger Things is an exotic, enjoyable and unexpected Photo/Lisa Shafer take on the city-wide festival celebrating Paris in the Twenties,” Marrazzo commented. “Through its intimate setting, superb talent and a fascinating synthesis of song, poetry and narrative Lyric Fest reveals to its audience a vision, a sense of this exuberant time in the artistic life of Paris.” Lyric Fest was founded in 2003 by three distinguished Philadelphia-area musicians: mezzo-soprano Suzanne DuPlantis, soprano Randi Marrazzo, and pianist Laura Ward. Lyric Fest is the only performing organization in the Metropolitan Philadelphia dedicated exclusively to the voice recital. Seeking to revitalize and expand the song tradition, Lyric Fest invites regional and internationally recognized artists, who together produce unique and educational programming, built around compelling themes and presented in an intimate setting. Find out more at LyricFest.org.

CELEBRATING JEWISH CULTURE & COMMUNITY

A Spiritual Journey of Soulful Music – April 3
Songstress Neshama Carlebach to Appear in Wynnewood with the Green Pastures Baptist Church Choir ers have described themselves as “voices of peace and unity in a troubled world.” The concert promises to be unlike anything the audience has experienced before—combining Neshama’s (her name means “soul”) sensual and skillful voice (which has been compared to Sheryl Crow and Linda Ronstadt) with the energetic and soulful talents of the choir. The room will fill with Hebrew and English songs and music blending pop, jazz and the traditional Jewish melodies of her father. The 37 year-old Neshama lists among her greatest inspirations, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Joni Mitchell and, of course, Rabbi Carlebach. She and the choir are backed by her band, consisting of piano, bass, drums and guitar. She has said that her band “takes the most incredible music and gives it the most unbelievable sounds. It is not a predictable show. When the Reverend sings in Hebrew it is very cool.” There is an enormous and obvious intensity that fills the performers and the audience at a “Unity Tour” concert. It is often transformative and transporting. It is always exciting and emotional. Just five months ago, Neshama’s 7th CD, “Higher and Higher,” created in collaboration with Rev. Hambrick and the choir, was released. It has been widely praised.The CD has been described as a recording that is “…perfect for the times. One that embraces spirit, vitality and values, without being tied to any particular denomination. It is a record of hope. It will appeal to her legion of devoted fans and gain her a diverse new audience.” Even though her lyrics include some Jewish prayers, Carlebach does not consider her music “necessarily religious. But I definitely would say it is spiritual. It speaks to the soul. …It is about connecting with something that is meaningful and precious in your life and feeling something.” Of a recent concert performance Neshama writes, “Hundreds of people from all different backgrounds came together, sang, cried and danced. Once again I witnessed the utter magic of my father’s music. It is an infinite privilege to sing in his name and see the good he is still accomplishing in this world.” See Neshama Carlebach with the Green Pastures Baptist Church Choir, Sunday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El, 1001 Remington Road, Wynnewood. Admission $36. For tickets, call 610-649-5300. Advance purchase highly recommended.

hen charismatic songstress Neshama Carlebach takes center stage at Temple Beth Hillel – Beth El in Wynnewood on April 3, with the Green Pastures Baptist Church Choir from the Bronx, it will be an electrifying and unforgettable night. So how does a nice Jewish girl and Baptist choir come to perform together? The collaboration had its roots several years ago when the choir and its dynamic leader, The Rev. Roger Hambrick, performed at a Martin Luther King Day observance at Neshama’s synagogue. Neshama discovered that her father’s song “Brothers and Friends” was regularly sung by Rev. Hambrick’s congregation. The rest, as they say, is history. Neshama’s father is the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. He has been described as the most significant Jewish recording artist of the past half-century and the father of Modern Jewish Music. According to Neshama, who has enjoyed her own successful musical career for years, her father, “embraced people of all religions and all backgrounds and invited them in.” Rabbi Carlebach also collaborated with a Baptist choir for his first recording in 1958. Neshama is proudly carrying on her father’s legacy. And she has gone further—bringing her father’s music to diverse cultures and her own generation. The “Unity Tour’s” message is one of unification. Their hope is to bring communities together with song. These unique perform-

Jewish Mindfulness Program in Roxborough Offers Guide to Ancient Practice of “Counting the Omer”
the April 10, 2011 publication date. A blackand-white pdf file will be made available for download starting April 12. In Biblical times, the counting of the Omer was an agricultural ritual during which farmers waved a sheaf of barley (an omer) toward the heavens to pray for a good harvest. The Jewish mystics of the 16th and 17th centuries assigned a quality to each of the 49 days. In modern times, counters have used these designations as starting points for meditation and reflection. Rabbi Levy will teach two preparatory classes on Counting the Omer on Wednesdays April 6 and 13 from 6:15 to 8 p.m. at Mishkan Shalom, 4101 Freeland Avenue in Roxborough. Cost is $24 for Mishkan Shalom members and $36 for non-members. In addition, a 27-hour Mindfulness Shabbat on retreat is planned for Elkins Estate in Elkins Park on April 29 - 30. It will include a contemplative celebration of Shabbat as well as a day of walking and sitting meditation. For information, or to order an Omer Guide, call Mishkan Shalom at 215-508-0226, email mindfulness@mishkan.org or visit the “A Way In” Web site, http://mishkan.org/ a-way-in.

or an increasing number of modern Jews, Passover marks not only a remembrance of liberation from slavery, but also the beginning of a 49-day journey toward revelation: the “Counting of the Omer,” an invitation to explore Jewish Mindfulness. “A Way In,” the Jewish Mindfulness program at Mishkan Shalom synagogue in Roxborough, has created several aids to exploring this ancient practice, including a special full-color spiral-bound guide to Counting the Omer filled with Psalm verses and suggested Mindfulness practices geared to each day. In addition, during the Omer, which falls between April 19 and June 7 this year, the “A Way In” Web site – http://mishkan.org/a-way-in – will post daily teachings and blessings. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their experiences through a blog. A relatively new development in Judaism, Jewish Mindfulness combines meditation and movement with Jewish story and symbol to help cultivate “moment-to-moment awareness.” “Journey through the Wilderness: A Guide to Counting the Omer,” is written by Rabbi Yael Levy, based on her decades-long spiritual practice. The guides can be pre-ordered and will begin shipping immediately after

he phone call came on June 6, 2010, as Austin Bury ’11 was on his way home from Canada, where he had been racing as a member of Malvern Prep Crew. The call was from his dad, Tim, who delivered the news that Austin’s cousin, 26-year-old Marine Sgt. Brandon Bury, had been killed while

Austin Bury (front) and Malvern Prep Crew teammates rowing the new Sgt. Brandon C. Bury USMC quad. supporting combat operations in Afghanistan. The news weighed heavy on Austin’s heart as he endured that long trip home. Brandon Bury had already served two tours in Iraq before he was deployed to Afghanistan in April 2010. He had most recently been assigned to train Afghan police officers, and spoke to family and friends about making progress with the local population. “He had a light about him when he walked into a room, and everyone was always drawn to him,” said his wife Heather, mother of Brandon’s 4- and 2-year-old sons. “He was the kind of man who wanted to help everyone.” Rowing provided comfort for Austin, who greatly loved, admired and respected his cousin. He focused his energies on the US Rowing Youth National Championship in Cincinnati, and the US Rowing Junior Men’s National Team Selection Camp, but his commitment to crew meant he was unable to join his family in attendance at both Brandon’s funeral in California and memorial service in Houston. Brandon was in his thoughts last season, and this year the loved one he lost will be with him throughout the racing season. A brand new quadruple scull, a gift of an anonymous donor, will be christened as the Sgt. Brandon C. Bury USMC at a ceremony on Saturday, April 2, at 12:00 p.m. at the team’s boathouse, located at 601 Washington Street in Conshohocken. Sgt. Brandon Bury in Afghanistan Malvern Prep rowers, families, alumni and friends are invited to join the special in 2010. event, which will include a Marine Corps Honor Guard, a blessing of the boat by Malvern’s Head of School, Father James R. Flynn, O.S.A., and comments by the Bury family. “The dedication of this quad has meant so much to Austin and his extended family,” said Betsy Bury, Austin’s mother. “Brandon’s father, Brian, and mother, Terri, are overwhelmed with gratitude to Malvern for this honorable recognition of their son. We hope that Sgt. Brandon C. Bury USMC will see Malvern Prep all the way to Nationals this year.” For more information on Sgt.
