    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Dr. Cleon Cornes will lead this class about composer Gustav Mahler, who was one of the leading conductors of his generation.

A major accomplishment of Gustav Mahler was the expansion and invigoration of the symphonic repertoire.... both as a composer and as an internationally acclaimed conductor. Throughout much of his life, however, he was a lonely isolated individual struggling with feelings of rejection and alienation. His music is a highly personal expression of his inner world, characterized by a struggle between hope and despair. In this class, Dr. Cornes will discuss some of the relationships and experiences that may have contributed to that inner world and play some of his beautiful and moving music.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Dr. Cleon Cornes will lead this class about composer Gustav Mahler, who was one of the leading conductors of his generation.

A major accomplishment of Gustav Mahler was the expansion and invigoration of the symphonic repertoire.... both as a composer and as an internationally acclaimed conductor. Throughout much of his life, however, he was a lonely isolated individual struggling with feelings of rejection and alienation. His music is a highly personal expression of his inner world, characterized by a struggle between hope and despair. In this class, Dr. Cornes will discuss some of the relationships and experiences that may have contributed to that inner world and play some of his beautiful and moving music.

Interested in elevating your artistic skills?  This class will discuss aspects of color, explore how to mix colors, create effective color strategies (also known as harmonies) and manipulate visual effects created by color.  This will be a practical look at color that can apply to a wide range of interests from painters, gardeners & interior designers.  Our focus in the class will be with using paint, but students are welcome to use their preferred materials.  No prior experience is necessary! Recommended reading Josef Albers Interaction of Color. Robert J Mazzaferro is the instructor. Contact him at rmazzaferro@aii.edu or text 724-994-6467.

CLASS SIZE IS LIMITED: REGISTER AT THE REFERENCE DESK 412-531-1912 EXT 209

Supply List

Paper             Weight is the most important aspect here.  Try to aim for about 12 sheets, but as with all the supplies something in the vicinity is fine.  Paper is often listed as hot or cold pressed, for our purposes this will not matter. Specifics:  11” X 15”  12 sheets 140lb

Paint              You get what you pay for with paint.  That being said a simple set will be sufficient.  I do insist on tubes instead of pans because it will make a difference for mixing colors later.  I am recommending Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolors, which are available at both Utrecht and Pat Catans. Specifics:  Any Red, yellow, green, blue (except cerulean) and a purple/violet or magenta.  Optional:  A variety of reds, greens, blues, earth tones (siennas, umbers, ochres)  

Brushes         Camel hair brushes will be fine, but be warned cheap brushes tend to fall apart quickly.  You will want a variety of round sizes and a larger flat brush to start. Specifics: round 4 or 6 & round 8 or 10; 1” flat

Items you hopefully have around the house

Masking tape 1”-2” (Will need to purchase if you do not have any tape)

Palette: An old white glass plate will do – must be white, no patterns or color

2 containers for water – preferably with lids, old sauce jars work great! (Do not purchase, we will use plastic cups for anyone who does not have a container.)

Towel – safe to assume it will be stained by the paint, so old, torn towels work (Do not purchase)

Hair dryer (Do not purchase, we only need a couple for the entire class)

Board – slightly larger than your paper (You might want to get a drawing board, otherwise we will tape paper to the table.)

Apron or smock

If you have any questions, text 724-994-6467 (do not call!) or email (rmazzaferro@aii.edu) Robert Mazzaferro

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Dr. Cleon Cornes will lead this class about composer Gustav Mahler, who was one of the leading conductors of his generation.

A major accomplishment of Gustav Mahler was the expansion and invigoration of the symphonic repertoire.... both as a composer and as an internationally acclaimed conductor. Throughout much of his life, however, he was a lonely isolated individual struggling with feelings of rejection and alienation. His music is a highly personal expression of his inner world, characterized by a struggle between hope and despair. In this class, Dr. Cornes will discuss some of the relationships and experiences that may have contributed to that inner world and play some of his beautiful and moving music.

Beginner ukulele players! Jam with other newer players at Mt. Lebanon Library the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 7 PM.  This is for players who have had a few lessons or know some basic chords and want to learn more while playing with others. We will experiment with basic strums, alternate chords and how to move from one chord to the next. We will play songs slowly at first and then again faster. The group will decide what songs they want to play using “The Daily Ukulele 365, Songs for Better Living” by Liz and Jim Beloff. This book is available from music stores and online.  Bring your ukulele and a floor music stand along with the music book. If you want to play songs other than what is in this book please notify the group the week prior so copies can be made.  As the group progresses, we will open up the group to more advanced players and more challenging music selections. If you have any questions, please contact me at Patty_wms@hotmail.com.

No need to register, but you must own your own ukulele.

Beginner ukulele players! Jam with other newer players at Mt. Lebanon Library the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 7 PM.  This is for players who have had a few lessons or know some basic chords and want to learn more while playing with others. We will experiment with basic strums, alternate chords and how to move from one chord to the next. We will play songs slowly at first and then again faster. The group will decide what songs they want to play using “The Daily Ukulele 365, Songs for Better Living” by Liz and Jim Beloff. This book is available from music stores and online.  Bring your ukulele and a floor music stand along with the music book. If you want to play songs other than what is in this book please notify the group the week prior so copies can be made.  As the group progresses, we will open up the group to more advanced players and more challenging music selections. If you have any questions, please contact me at Patty_wms@hotmail.com.

No need to register, but you must own your own ukulele.

misc_none 7:30 PM  -  8:45 PM A Night with Philip Beard    
    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   
Author Philip Beard will stop by the library to discuss his new book, Swing.

About Swing: John Kostka is three feet tall but larger than life, moving through the world on gloved hands and powerful arms as if on a set of parallel bars. Henry Graham is a ten year-old boy whose father has just left home for good. When the two meet at a downtown bus stop, all they seem to have in common is their love of the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates. But that is enough to begin a life-long friendship that, eventually, enables both men to confront old enemies and heal old wounds.
Philip Beard's third and most accomplished novel swings between two narratives the way John Kostka swings through life. The result is a multifaceted meditation on childhood heroes, the beauty of baseball and the power of love to heal a family in crisis.

Philip Beard is the award-winning author Dear Zoe, which was a Borders “Original Voices” Selection, a “Book Sense” Pick, and was named by the American Library Association as one of its “Ten Best First Novels of 2005.” Dear Zoe is currently in development as a feature film. His third novel, Swing, uses the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates as the backdrop of a story about an unlikely friendship between a legless veteran and a 10 year-old boy. The result is a multifaceted meditation on childhood heroes, the beauty of baseball, and the power of love to heal a family in crisis.

Praise for Swing:

"Philip Beard's Swing is a novel to be savored."
      -Sara Gruen, New York Times Bestselling author of Water for Elephants

“In the game’s most elemental terms, Mr. Beard’s swing here is just about perfect. In fact, he crushes it.”
     -The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Like Chad Harbaugh in The Art of Fielding, Philip Beard uses baseball as a lens to view love and loss. Swing is a heartfelt novel, full or imperfect characters worth loving, and a valentine to Pittsburgh and the great teams of Maz and Clemente."
      -Stewart O’Nan, award-winning author of Faithful and Last Night at the Lobster

“An exquisite novel so real you watch it rather than read it. Masterful, erotic and poignant, Swing is a movie waiting to happen.”
      -Tish Cohen, bestselling author of Inside Out Girl         


“Like Chad Harbaugh in The Art of Fielding, Philip Beard uses baseball as a lens to view love and loss. Swing is a generous, heartfelt novel filled with imperfect characters worth loving, and a valentine to Pittsburgh and the great Pirate teams of Maz and Clemente.” –Stewart O’Nan, award-winning author of Faithful and Emily Alone

“Jazz is the one true American art form” is a generally accepted statement. Did you realize that our own Pittsburgh area played an important part in its development? If you’d like to find out the “why” and “how” of this statement, then the Jazz Program at Mt. Lebanon Library is for you. We will not only explore the development of jazz in this area, but the lives and music of some of the artists who actually made it happen. Individuals like Johnny Costa, Mary Lou Williams, Billy Strayhorn, Billy Eckstine and Henry Mancini, will be among the ones featured. 

This program, from the Sen. John Heinz History Center, will be presented by Judy Sutton and Max Gonano.

Beginner ukulele players! Jam with other newer players at Mt.

We will experiment with basic strums, alternate chords and how to move from one chord to the next. We will play songs slowly at first and then again faster. The group will decide what songs they want to play using “The Daily Ukulele 365, Songs for Better Living” by Liz and Jim Beloff. This book is available from music stores and online.  Bring your ukulele and a floor music stand along with the music book. If you want to play songs other than what is in this book please notify the group the week prior so copies can be made.  As the group progresses, we will open up the group to more advanced players and more challenging music selections. If you have any questions, please contact me at Patty_wms@hotmail.com.

No need to register, but you must own your own ukulele.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

This talk will present a positive and hopeful message about living our later years. It shows how the second half of life is a fertile time for transformation: for remaking meaning and purpose and for giving to family and the world from our accumulated wisdom and experience. The talk focuses on the differences between the first and second halves of life and on the necessary shifts in the second half to live a vital life in our elder years. The talk is hopeful in that it conveys a message counter to the cultural message that as we age we enter a stage of steady decline culminating in irrelevance, sickness and death. Presenter Carmen Accetta, M.S.Ed., will aim this talk at people fifty and older, but younger people also are welcome.

Beginner ukulele players! Jam with other newer players at Mt. Lebanon Library the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 7 PM.  This is for players who have had a few lessons or know some basic chords and want to learn more while playing with others. We will experiment with basic strums, alternate chords and how to move from one chord to the next. We will play songs slowly at first and then again faster. The group will decide what songs they want to play using “The Daily Ukulele 365, Songs for Better Living” by Liz and Jim Beloff. This book is available from music stores and online.  Bring your ukulele and a floor music stand along with the music book. If you want to play songs other than what is in this book please notify the group the week prior so copies can be made.  As the group progresses, we will open up the group to more advanced players and more challenging music selections. If you have any questions, please contact me at Patty_wms@hotmail.com.

No need to register, but you must own your own ukulele.

We will experiment with basic strums, alternate chords and how to move from one chord to the next. We will play songs slowly at first and then again faster. The group will decide what songs they want to play using “The Daily Ukulele 365, Songs for Better Living” by Liz and Jim Beloff. This book is available from music stores and online.  Bring your ukulele and a floor music stand along with the music book. If you want to play songs other than what is in this book please notify the group the week prior so copies can be made.  As the group progresses, we will open up the group to more advanced players and more challenging music selections. If you have any questions, please contact me at Patty_wms@hotmail.com.

No need to register, but you must own your own ukulele.

Beginner ukulele players! Jam with other newer players at Mt.

We will experiment with basic strums, alternate chords and how to move from one chord to the next. We will play songs slowly at first and then again faster. The group will decide what songs they want to play using “The Daily Ukulele 365, Songs for Better Living” by Liz and Jim Beloff. This book is available from music stores and online.  Bring your ukulele and a floor music stand along with the music book. If you want to play songs other than what is in this book please notify the group the week prior so copies can be made.  As the group progresses, we will open up the group to more advanced players and more challenging music selections. If you have any questions, please contact me at Patty_wms@hotmail.com.

No need to register, but you must own your own ukulele.

Beginner ukulele players! Jam with other newer players at Mt.

We will experiment with basic strums, alternate chords and how to move from one chord to the next. We will play songs slowly at first and then again faster. The group will decide what songs they want to play using “The Daily Ukulele 365, Songs for Better Living” by Liz and Jim Beloff. This book is available from music stores and online.  Bring your ukulele and a floor music stand along with the music book. If you want to play songs other than what is in this book please notify the group the week prior so copies can be made.  As the group progresses, we will open up the group to more advanced players and more challenging music selections. If you have any questions, please contact me at Patty_wms@hotmail.com.

No need to register, but you must own your own ukulele.

This book is available from music stores and online.  Bring your ukulele and a floor music stand along with the music book. If you want to play songs other than what is in this book please notify the group the week prior so copies can be made.  As the group progresses, we will open up the group to more advanced players and more challenging music selections.

Yoga is a practice that benefits all ages and body types.  Join us for a basic 60-minute flow class for all levels.  Both beginners and experienced practitioners will benefit physically and mentally from the training.  We will begin with a warm-up of Sun A and B, then move to standing poses before ending with a floor series.  The classes will be led by Jessica E, Danielle E. or Bryan M. -- all certified teachers. 

Each participant should have a yoga mat, a small hand towel, and water, if desired.  Feel free to bring any questions you have about yoga to the class as well.

These classes are free and no pre-registration is necessary.  Yoga for You meets at weekly at 7:30 pm on Wednesday evenings.
