The Mind, Magic and Music: Making a Fool of Parkinson's
This early matinee is part lecture, part magic show, part concert and a complete experience. Richard Horn, a neuroscientist, jazz pianist, magician, and professor emeritus of physiology at Thomas Jefferson University, gives his entertaining, studied and personal perspective on how to cope with Parkinson's disease. Presented in partnership with SV Productions. Registration required.
Up Close Concert: ENSO String Quartet
Our highly anticipated Music at Kohl partnership brings dynamic chamber artists hailed by the Washington post as an 'imaginative ensemble' that plays with 'smoldering power - half honey, half molten lava.' Founded at Yale University in 1999 and based in New York City since 2007, the Enso String Quartet has distinguished itself as one of the top-rank American chamber ensembles performing today. Guests are greeted with wine and cheese and the 60-minute concert is followed by a 'Meet the Artists' dessert reception. It is our pleasure to reserve tables for parties of four or more. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Registration required.
Up Close Concert: Mana Quartet
The first saxophone quartet in history to receive the coveted Grand Prize of the Coleman International Chamber Competition crafts a program especially for the PJCC. The 60-minute concert features three masterworks in the saxophone quartet repertoire all written in a completely different style, all by Jewish composers. Guests are greeted with wine and cheese and concert is followed by a 'Meet the Artists' dessert reception. It is our pleasure to reserve tables for parties of four or more. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Registration required.
Up Close Concert: Tammy Hall's Stevie Wonder Tribute
The music of Stevie Wonder has been, and is still, the soundtrack for so many of us. Please join Tammy L Hall (keys, vocals) lauded for her 'rich, emotional quality,' and her jazz band as we revel in the wonder of Wonder. Be sure to keep an ear out for 'Superstition', part of the PJCC's fall series on superstitions, omens and amulets.
