Great Romantics for an American Symphonic Organ with Ronald Wyatt

Time: 3 pm to 5 pm

Contact: Jess Brown · jlbrown@loyno.edu · 504-861-5882

Location: Temple Sinai

The Montage Fine and Performing Arts Series at Loyola University New Orleans presents organist Ronald Wyatt in a solo recital, "Great Romantics for an American Symphonic Organ," on Sunday, March 11 at 3 p.m. at Temple Sinai, 6227 St. Charles Avenue. The event is free and open to the public.

"Great Romantics" will showcase the unique orchestral abilities of the Temple's 1926 E. M. Skinner organ. The program will include John Cook's "Fanfare," Johann Sebastian Bach's "Prelude and Fugue in c minor," Enrico Bossi’s "Ave Maria" and Louis Vierne’s "Symphonie I," among others.

Wyatt holds degrees from the University of Texas and Trinity University, where he earned a Master of Arts degree in organ. In the mid-1970s, he spent a year in Europe studying organ literature and performance practices, even appearing on the Netherlands Television Network with Marie-Claire Alain, an acclaimed French organist known for her prolific recording career.

Since then, Wyatt has played numerous recitals throughout the United States and Europe, including a unique opportunity to play the calliope in a parade celebrating the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. Wyatt was a founder of the first statewide organ playing competition in Texas, has hosted a weekly radio series, and conducted masterclasses at a variety of colleges and universities. He is currently the director of music and organist at Trinity Episcopal Church on Galveston Island, Texas.

'How Not To Seduce a Virgin: Death and Doubt and in Renaissance Erotic Poetry'

Time: 5 pm to 7 pm

Contact: Laura Murphy · lmurphy@loyno.edu

Location: Whitney Bank Presentation Room (1st floor of Thomas Hall)

On Tuesday March 13 at 5pm in the Whitney Bank Presentation Room on the 1st floor of Thomas Hall, Dr. Wendy Hyman will give a talk entitled "How Not To Seduce a Virgin: Death and Doubt and in Renaissance Erotic Poetry."  Dr. Hyman is professor of Renaissance Literature at Oberlin University.  Her research is on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century literature, the history of science and intellectual history, Ovidianism and mythology, and lyric of all periods, and she is editor of The Automaton in English Renaissance Literature (Ashgate 2011), on the wide variety of inanimate objects that come to "life" in early modern literature.  

 

One of the most popular forms revived by Renaissance poets was the classical "carpe diem" motif, urging coy virgins to "seize the day" (and succumb to their lover's embraces) before time ran out. Such invitations often seem merely playful, but they relied on the proposition--quite scandalous in Reformation Europe--that there was no afterlife, no Christian consolation, and no God awaiting us after death. "How Not to Seduce a Virgin: Death and Doubt in Renaissance Erotic Poetry" will show how these seemingly trivial poems actually popularized the atheistic philosophy known as "materialism," and thereby seduce the reader into engaging in a radical intellectual game, reconceptualizing our relationship to both matter and spirit.

·         Apply:  Identify and take necessary practical steps to enter your field of choice; take action to be a “man or woman with and for others”

 

The program will take place on March 13th at  6:30 p.m. in the Claiborne Room of the Danna Student Center.  Dinner will be served.  Space is limited to 20 students and will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.

Circumstance (2010)
Thursday, March 15th, 7:00- 9:00 p.m. 
Monroe 157
Written and directed by: Maryam Keshavarz
Awards: Sundance Film Fest: Audience Award and Finalist for several John Cassavetes Awards

Atafeh and her brother, Mehran, have grown up privileged, in a home filled with music, art, and intellectual curiosity. While Atafeh dreams of fame and adventure, she and her best friend, Shireen, explore together Tehran's underground scenes and their sexuality. Meanwhile, her brother returns home from drug rehab, renounces his former decadent life, and replaces his once obsessive practice of classical music with more destructive pursuits. While following these siblings in their personal pursuits, Circumstance gives its audience a peek into the lives of young Iranians who are experimenting with sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

Location: Marquette Theater, 2nd Floor, Marquette Hall

Cost: $12 general admission; $8 students/seniors/faculty/staff Get Tickets

By William Shakespeare

This production leads the audience on a journey to attain one's true desire - love, rejection, healing, dirty tricks, reconciliation and union! All's Well That Ends Well telegraphs a spiritual pilgrimage. The heroine dupes her family and follows her anti-hero husband in the opposite direction!

As the play begins, we learn that the Countess is happy that her commoner ward Helena wishes to marry her son Count Bertram -- who does his best to avoid the union. But his plan is thwarted when Helena saves the life of the King of France, who then decrees that she can choose any man she wants for a husband. She chooses Bertram; but he goes off to war rather than live as a husband. Undaunted, plucky Helena uses her wiles, feminine and otherwise, to get her way.

All's Well That Ends Well will run in the Marquette Theatre on March 16, 17, 22, 23, 24 @ 8:00 p.m. and March 18 @ 2:00 p.m.

Tickets: $12 general admission
$8 students/seniors/faculty/staff
