Performance: Who Wrote that Song?
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Harry Warren, the Unknown Master of Melody

A Concert Lecture Performed by Prof. Diane Cypkin, PhD with accompanist Lena Panfilova (a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory)

When one thinks of the composers of the Great American songbook the names Arlen, Berlin, Gershwin, Kern, Porter and Rodgers immediately leap to mind. But Harry Warren? If you spend an hour listening to Diane Cypkin sing his songs and tell his story you’ll realize that there isn’t another hit-making composer quite like him. And while you may not know his name, you probably know his music as many of the standards he wrote are as famous and timeless as any by the other great tunesmiths of the golden age of stage and screen.

Harry had nearly two dozen number one hits, including, Forty- Second Street, Chattanooga Choo Choo and The More I See You. Nominated for the Academy Award for best song eleven times, Harry won three Oscars, including ones for Lullaby of Broadway and the World War II anthem, You’ll Never Know. Made an honorary citizen of Chattanooga, Tennessee because of this gold-record hit, Harry Warren is known by anyone who’s ever heard At Last, Etta James’ signature song which was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.

Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

  

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564) was celebrated for the excellence of his power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. Because of this, his contemporaries called him 'il divino,' or, 'the divine one.'  The Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition, starting November 13, 2017,  will present approximately 150 of Michelangelo's drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, and many complementary works by other artists for comparison and context.  Selected from 54 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition will examine Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer.

Professor Thomas Germano will present a visual lecture on the life, times and work of Michelangelo Buonarroti and introduce the works related to this 'once in a lifetime exhibition' in NYC.
