Somewhere Over the Rainbow: The Music of Harold Arlen

This concert will feature beloved songs from the American Songbook such as "Over the Rainbow," "Stormy Weather," and "It's Only a Paper Moon." Though his name may be obscure, Harold Arlen's compositions have been celebrated by experts and public alike. A son of a cantor, Arlen left home at 16 and faced many private misfortunes. However, tragic circumstances could not muffle his songs: "Blues in the Night," "My Shining Hour," "Come Rain or Come Shine," and "The Man That Got Away."

    Harry Houdini: Pulling Back the Veil in Search of Cecelia

    Harry Houdini had an obsessive love/hate relationship with magic and the supernatural. While performing inexplicable feats of magic for millions around the world, he diligently reminded his audiences that he had no occult powers. However, when his mother, Cecelia Weisz, died; he turned to the supernatural in a desperate attempt to pull back the Veil and contact her. Houdini became a regular at seances, and psychic readings, usually finding con artists and fraud. Rolando Santos will look at the world of spiritualism that Harry Houdini encountered as he was : Pulling Back the Veil in Search of Cecelia.
