Artistry can be discovered everywhere and through this exploration, we can inspire further bursts of creativity.

Bring your own lunch and get inspired! Water and coffee provided. Reservations for parties of 5 or more appreciated. Lectures will start at 12:00pm at Community Music School. 1544 W. Hamilton St. Allentown, PA 18102 February 14, 2019: Inspired by the Night Many artists believe they do their best work when the rest of the world is still. How do we psychologically, emotionally, and intellectually perceive the night? Does it remind us of moonlit walks or ghost stories or does it just provide the backdrop to wonderful dreams? Dr. Holly Roadfeldt will perform and discuss several musical interpretations of the night through the music of Oscar Peterson, Robert Schumann, Amy Beach, Frédéric Chopin, and Kirk O’Riordan.
