Seton Hall Arts Council Announces 2012-2013 Season

September 21, 2012 at 5:07 PM

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – The Seton Hall Arts Council’s 2012-2013 schedule features performances at a number of venues, including the South Orange Performing Arts Center.

The Arts Council is made up of six different groups: Jazz ‘N the Hall, Classical Concert Series, Seton Hall Theater, Walsh Gallery, Poetry-in-the-Round and The Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute.

Dr. Dena Levine, professor of music in the department of communication and the arts at Seton Hall University, is in charge of the Classical Concert Series and also serves as the communication coordinator for the Council. She assists council members in coming to a consensus about which events to include and then provides information to the public about the events.

“We are very appreciative of the work that Dr. Levine does to create an artistic and informative brochure that is distributed to the South Orange and Seton Hall communities,” said Deirdre Yates, professor of speech and theater at Seton Hall.

Levine said the council is committed to increasing the visibility of the arts through events on and off campus. With its affiliation with SOPAC, it is looking to reach a younger demographic to allow them explore the arts outside their day-to-day activity.

This fall, the Seton Hall Theater will perform Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.” This play was chosen because freshmen in the English department will read Shakespeare and the Arts Council wants to link performances to the experiences of the Seton Hall community.

Levin said there are a variety of events, and “each event is beautiful and different.”

The October schedule includes a visit by poet and evangelist Irma Lanzas. His appearance is co-sponsored by the Joseph A. Unanue Latino and Poetry-in-the-Round. He will be at Walsh Gallery on Oct. 7. Lanzas is from El Salvador and worked as a missionary in the United States and the poorest areas of Central America.

Anti-Cop Rhetoric and the Dallas Police Assassinations

The assassination of five Dallas law enforcement officers should shock and disgust us all. No society can be safe, no rights can be assured and no justice can be found in any place where police officers are intentionally targeted for murder.  

Sadly, this vicious attack comes on the heels of yet another viral video of a police shooting. Despite that fact that they have no ...

Obituary: Jeffrey Hoens of Westfield

Today my family and I must face the reality that our son Jeffrey Peter Hoens’s physical presence will no longer be with us. He had a “quirky” personality. He was our most creative child. He would go up to people and ask them “do you want to be friends?” When he was 2 years old he walked on the ice in the middle of a NJ Devil’s practice at Cody arena and ...

Inexpensive Staging Tip: Lighting

If you watch HGTV, then you know that decluttering and staging your home are important factors in getting your home sold faster and for more money. While staging can have up-front costs, there is an inexpensive thing that you can do yourself; improve lighting.

 

When selling your home, your real estate agent will instruct you to leave ...

Burial at Sea

As I plugged my phone into the outlet next to a shelf in the hotel bathroom, I had a fleeting thought that it was sort of an odd place for an outlet.  That was actually the last thought I had before my phone slipped out of my hands and fell directly below the shelf…

Into the toilet.

The good news was, the water in the toilet was clean.

The bad news was, it was still water.

Pokémon Politics Go!

As a rule I stay away from popular fads.  Politics included.

 

I find my views on the latest crazy trends that are sweeping the nation are usually wrong and completely out of touch with reality.  

 

For example, for years I have been predicting the imminent demise of cell phones and the internet.

 

Which is why it seems only appropriate that I expound on ...
