Jazz, Rock, Musical Theater, and Music Technology Classes among offerings
As winter continues its icy grip, what better time of year to start making plans for summer?
Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Summer Arts Program (SAP) provides budding musicians in the 2nd through 10th grades multiple opportunities for artistic exploration and friendship. Taught by top-flight faculty, offerings include instrumental classes, chamber music, chorus, large ensembles, visual arts, rock, jazz, musical theatre, and frequent performance opportunities. Students at all levels receive instruction in a program individually tailored to their needs and interests.
“Unfettered by schoolwork and the scheduling challenges often faced during the school year, SAP students have the latitude to try additional instruments, experiment musically, take lessons every day, and perform each week,” says Joe Piscitelli, the program’s dynamic director. “Consequently, they’re able to make tremendous progress and develop lasting friendships over the program’s five weeks (June 25 – July 27, 2018).”
Registration is currently underway; Early-bird discounts are in effect through March 30, 2018.
Mary Margulis-Ohnuma, mother of three SAP participants shares “For many years now, our family has planned our summers around the kids attending Hoff-Barthelson’s Summer Arts Program. The program offers opportunities to work with a world-class faculty in a fluid format that catalyzes learning. SAP provides a warm and welcoming environment that is at once familiar from summer to summer and yet also manages to provide new challenges from year to year.”

Sophie Scholl (German, 1921-1943) and her brother, Hans, organized a student protest movement against the Nazi regime. During this lecture, we will examine the political, cultural and religious influences on the White Rose resistance through Sophie’s letters and diaries. What inspired Sophie and six others to sacrifice their lives simply by using their personal freedoms?
Alexandra Lehmann, fluent in German and with a Fulbright Scholarship, began archival research in Munich for “With You There Is Light,” a historical novel based on the true story about Sophie Scholl and Fritz Hartnagel. In 2017, she began representing the White Rose Foundation here in the United States. Alexandra has won a fellowship to the Wesleyan Writers’ Conference and has guest lectured on German Resistance history at St. Paul’s German Church in New York City, Mt. Holyoke and Sarah Lawrence Colleges and Fairfield and Western Connecticut State Universities.

John Bradley writes, “By action and word our current President has provoked the questioning of our basic assumptions about right and wrong, good and bad, and even the standards by which we distinguish between the true and the false. Our abiding beliefs about virtue and vice have been rattled, and we have been called to the barricades to defend heartfelt convictions about the makeup of the good society and our obligations as citizens, neighbors and family members.” This presentation and the discussion that will follow, will help us to make sense of the current ethical malaise and meet the challenge it poses to good government and right action.
Bradley, a long-time resident of Larchmont, received his Ph.D. in Philosophy from New York University having written his doctoral dissertation on the moral philosophy of R.M. Hare, whose ethical writings centered on the logical analysis of moral language.
Coffee and refreshments are served at 3:30; the presentation begins at 4:00. This program is free and open to the entire community.

Ksenia Nouril, co-curator Hot Art in a Cold War: Intersections of Art and Science in the Soviet Era is a Dodge Fellow, Zimmerli Art Museum and PhD Candidate, Department of Art History, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
Nouril will examine how artists in the Soviet Union responded to advancements in the sciences during the late Cold War period (1960s-1980s). Highlighting several key works of art from the exhibition Hot Art in a Cold War: Intersections of Art and Science in the Soviet Era, Nouril will show how artists working in the Soviet republics of Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, and Latvia were both directly and indirectly inspired by science, math, engineering, and design. While many embraced progress in hope of a better life, some were wary of its consequences. The paintings, sculptures, photographs, and drawings they produced make prescient proposals that are still applicable to our world today.
For her PhD, Nouril’s dissertation examines the work of contemporary Eastern European artists who actively question and engage with history and historical representations of communism. Ksenia is a Dodge Fellow at the Zimmerli Art Museum, where she has assisted in the organization of numerous exhibitions of the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union, including Leonid Sokov: Ironic Objects and Putting a Face to the Name: Artist Portraits from the Dodge Collection. In March 2016, she curated the exhibition Dreamworlds and Catastrophes: Intersections of Art and Technology in the Dodge Collection, which served as the inspiration for Hot Art in a Cold War: Intersections of Art and Science in the Soviet Era at the Bruce Museum. Ksenia previously worked for The Museum of Modern Art, New York and has published in The Calvert Journal and Art Margins Online.
Reception at 6:30 pm; talk 7:00 – 8:00 pm. Admission in advance: Free for Bruce members and students (with valid ID), $15 for nonmembers. At the door: $10 members, $25 nonmembers. Reservations at brucemuseum.org/site/events.
