Verona Quartet and Josh Roman

Sunday, February 2 at 2 p.m.

Locations: Samanea New York

Reservations open: Tuesday, January 21 at 9 a.m.

Hailed by The New York Times as an “outstanding ensemble,” the Verona Quartet is dedicated to showcasing the art form of the string quartet and to elevating their music making to convey the poetic narrative of storytelling.  The Quartet’s members represent four different nations (USA, UK, Singapore and Canada), but their singular approach and unanimity of purpose in both musical and cultural cooperation has quickly earned the group a reputation for its “interpretive strength… robust characterization [and] commanding resonance” (Calgary Herald).  They are joined by cellist Joshua Roman. He has earned an international reputation for his wide-ranging repertoire, a commitment to communicating the essence of music in visionary ways, artistic leadership and versatility. As well as being a celebrated performer, he is recognized as an accomplished composer and curator, and was named a TED Senior Fellow in 2015.

Reservations open Tuesday, January 21 at 9 a.m. by calling 794-2570 ext, 560 or online at www.eastmeadow.info.

Inheritance by Dani Shapiro

 

Tuesday, January 21 at 1 p.m.

 

Moderator: Anna Katsavos

 

Location: Samanea New York (Formerly Source Mall)

Inheritance is a book about secrets—secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than fifty years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history. It is a book about the extraordinary moment in which we live—a moment in which science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover.
