  • 7:30-9 pm Unheard Voices
    Pennsylvania Eurythmy Ensemble performance
  • In Unheard Voices, the Pennsylvania Eurythmy Ensemble will be performing their version of the Iroquois tale of The Wife of the Thunderer. They will also perform to music by Beethoven, Burghardt, and Debussy, as well as to poetry by the African-American poet E. Ethelbert Miller and others. Eurythmy, whose name stems from the Greek for beautiful rhythm, is an expressive movement art developed in the early twentieth century by Rudolf Steiner. Performed to music or the spoken word, the repertoire of eurythmic movements is connected to the tonal experience of music or to the sounds and rhythms of language. Eurythmy is also used in education, notably in Waldorf schools, and in therapy. To watch an example of an eurythmy performance click here.
