    Expressionism - The Art & the Music

    7:30pm
    Location
    Peter Hall
    Presented by Moravian Music Institute

    Special Event Concert – Betty Aierstock Moore Memorial Concert
    Expressionism – The Art & the Music
    Robert Taub, piano
    7:30 PM – Thursday, March 16, 2017
    Peter Hall – Moravian College, Hurd Campus
    $15 general admission / $10 seniors & students

    Robert Taub is an internationally known, Princeton-based pianist who specializes in the music of Beethoven and 20th century composers. In this concert he features music of Arnold Schoenberg and the art of Wassily Kandinsky & Egon Schiele – expressionism in both art forms. Expressionism arose in early 20th century Germany and Austria as a counter-reaction to increasing urbanization and industrialization, and their concomitant dehumanizing effects. Expressionists rejected the prevailing ideology of realism. Instead, they sought to extend human perception beyond objective reality and to portray subjective responses that objects and sensations arouse within oneself. All of this will be explored in this evening of music and art. This concert is sponsored, in part, by Moravian’s Arts & Lectures Committee, as well as both the Music and Art Departments.

    Arts Advocacy day is March 20, 2017, and the Lehigh Valley Arts Council is teaming up with the Allentown Art Museum to host a Superintendents Breakfast at the museum. The occasion is being used to release the results of the Arts Council’s 2015 study, “The State of Arts-in-Education in the Lehigh Valley.”

    Principals and faculty from the region’s twenty-two districts were surveyed in order to gauge the level of arts-in-education activities. The breakfast agenda will encourage participants to talk about how their districts were able to build support in their communities for
    arts programming.
