Talks/Lectures
“Mark Twain’s Music Box” A Studio Talk with Music
In 1878, Samuel Clemens, while traveling through Europe to obtain an education in high-brow culture, was given a music box that could play 10 different tunes. He had a difficult time choosing the playlist because his upbringing and musical tastes had been distinctly backwoods. Through narration, readings and music, “Mark Twain’s Music Box” explores Twain’s musical tastes and opinions — running the gamut from poignant to hilarious — as found in his writings and biographical information. This hour-long program features a musical ensemble comprised of a singer, two violins, cello, guitar, piano and banjo presenting a variety of musical selections, from Schubert lieder to Stephen Foster songs, all works considered by Twain to be essential listening for the culturally sophisticated individual.

Classical
“The Diaries of Adam and Eve” A Chamber Opera by Evan Premo
“The Diaries of Adam and Eve,” a chamber opera by Evan Premo based upon the writings of Mark Twain, tells the familiar story of the original man and woman in the Garden of Eden, discovering the world (and each other) for the first time. The opera follows the pair as they are thrown out of Eden and come to know death, betrayal and, ultimately, love and deep companionship in their lives together. This New York premiere at The Sembrich with stage direction by Edwin Cahill will reunite the cast and instrumentalists from the original 2007 Michigan performance of the opera: Matthew Morris, baritone; Mary Bonhag, soprano and The Aeolus Quartet: Nicholas Tavani & Rachel Shapiro, violins; Greg Luce, viola and Alan Richardson, cello.

Talks/Lectures
“Youth’s Magic Horn: The Early Phonograph and Its Greatest Stars”- Studio Talk with Barrymore Laurence Scherer
Though Thomas Edison initially thought of his phonograph as a dictating machine for offices, his invention proved an entertainment godsend—especially during the Golden Age of Opera. Featuring a dazzling mix of historic images and rare recordings, this lively presentation will reveal the extraordinary story of Edison’s invention and its astonishing impact on the music world. As a special feature, we will enjoy the rare opportunity to wind up Marcella Sembrich’s beautifully preserved Victrola and listen to her as she herself did. Mr. Scherer, a classical music and art critic for The Wall Street Journal and contributing editor of The Magazine ANTIQUES, is author of the acclaimed books, “Bravo! A Guide to Opera for the Perplexed and A History of American Classical Music.”
