Opera Preview: Don Carlo
Knox United Church, Sunday, April 27 at 3pm
The noted musical commentator Andrew Porter described Verdi’s Don Carlo as: “one of Verdi’s greatest operas - and one of the greatest of all “grand” operas. Personal and political destinies interact in a powerful, elevated and vast drama. Six interesting and complex characters are enmeshed in a web of Church and State, where their actions affect not only one another, but the fate of two nations - and on every level, Verdi rises to the subject with his most powerful and passionate music”. The opera, based on a semi-historical drama by the German playwright Friedrich Schiller, is set during the turbulent period encompassed by the Spanish Inquisition and it contains spectacular scenic effects, as required by the Opéra in Paris which commissioned the work. It has been argued that Don Carlo is Verdi’s most profound work, and in it he has created some of the most memorable and vividly depicted characters in the entire range of his operatic works. Any successful production of Don Carlo makes huge demands on an opera company, as it requires brilliant singing actors and opulent staging to bring this stirring drama to life. Vancouver Opera’s presentation of the work is a co-production with opera companies in Hawaii and Hong Kong, and it features a large cast of superb artists in the highly demanding leading roles. Don Carlo (not seen here in more than 40 years!) promises to provide a thrilling climax to Vancouver’s Opera’s 2013/14 season. David Godin will present a musical and dramatic analysis of Don Carlo on Sunday April 27th in the Fellowship Hall of Knox United Church (5600 Balaclava Street) beginning at 3:00 P.M. Admission is by donation (tax receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more).
Complimentary refreshments will be available at the break, and all proceeds will be directed to the on-going ministry of Knox Church. (starfishian)

DEEPENING COMMUNITY
Banyen Books and Sound, Monday, May 5 at 6:30pm
with Author & Community Activist PAUL BORN
Book Launch Monday, May 5, 2014 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Cost: Free

Explore the power & potential of community with Paul Born, co-founder of Tamarack Institute and author of Deepening Community: Finding Joy Together in Chaotic Times.

Community shapes our identity, quenches our thirst for belonging, and bolsters our physical, mental, emotional, and economic health. But in the chaos of modern life, community ties have become unraveled, leaving many feeling afraid or alone in the crowd, grasping at shallow substitutes for true community.

Internationally recognized community-builder Paul Born will present at Banyen on the theme of his new book Deepening Community, in which he describes the four pillars of deep community: sharing our stories, taking the time to enjoy one another, taking care of one another, and working together for a better world. To show the role each of these plays, he shares his own stories—as a child of refugees and as a longtime community activist. (starfishian)

Existence—Science, Spirituality & the Spaces Between
Banyen Books and Sound, Tuesday, May 13 at 6:30pm
Talk & Signing with BRETT HAYWARD, Tuesday, May 13, 2014, 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Cost: Free

Was the creation of the universe just a random occurrence or was it created by something other than natural causes? Are science and spirituality's views on these issues irreconcilable or is there a way of bridging the gap between these disciplines?

Citing examples from his provocative new book, Existence—Science, Spirituality & the Spaces Between, Brett Hayward will discuss the common ground that exists between those who believe in a higher power and those who don't. A philosopher who sees the world through the eyes of a veterinarian, Dr. Hayward, whose inquiry into the nature of existence incorporates a variety of scientific disciplines, will provide compelling evidence that science and spirituality can co-exist harmoniously. bretthayward.com (starfishian)

Catch the Fire: Unleashing the Creative Power of Youth, Adults and Communities
Banyen Books and Sound, Thursday, May 22 at 6:30pm
Presentation & Signing with CHARLIE MURPHY & PEGGY TAYLOR, Thursday, May 22, 2014
6:30pm to 8:00pm
Cost: Free

Catch the Fire: Unleashing the Creative Power of Youth, Adults and Communities:
Community, youth, non-profit, education, entrepreneurial, and religious organizations all have exciting ambitions, but they often lack the creative skills to impact people on a deep level. Catch the Fire is a complete guide to using arts and empowerment techniques to bring greater vitality and depth to working with groups of youth or adults. Based on the premise that you don't have to be a professional artist to use the arts in your work, this unique book invites group leaders into the realm of creativity-based facilitation, regardless of previous experience.

Learn stimulating activities incorporating storytelling, theater, writing, visual arts, music, and movement to:

Bridge gaps and unite people across generations and cultures
Build vibrant, creative learning communities with youth and/or adults
Fully engage participants and volunteers
Develop social and emotional intelligence
Take a deeper, more meaningful approach to learning.

Drawing on nearly two decades of experience providing transformative programs to empower youth and adults across North America and around the world, Catch the Fire is a powerful and valuable resource and a much-needed reminder that art is for everyone! (starfishian)
