Paul Bannick – Arctic Messenger: What the Snowy Owl Tells Us

Paul Bannick is an extraordinary photographer who not only captures gorgeous images of birds in their daily lives, but also makes a compelling case for preserving the habitat that sustains them. He is especially drawn to owls, particularly snowy owls, which is the subject of his talk. “For many of us, they embody the essence of wilderness,” he says. “They are also important messengers in that they tell us by their presence or absence about the health of vast ecosystems in the Arctic that are experiencing the pressure of climate change.” The photographer and author of two best-selling books, Owl, A Year in the Lives of North American Owls, and The Owl and the Woodpecker, Bannick is a frequent keynote speaker at Audubon events, bird festivals, and conservation events across North America.

Blaine Harden – North Korea—Stranger than Fiction

He will bring us up to date on the books’ characters, like Shin Dong-hyuk, the only person born in a North Korean prison camp to escape to the West, and share his views on the current relations between the Kim Jong Un regime and the U.S. Government.

Music History Talk – Beethoven 1770 to 1802

Beethoven’s formative years were spent in Bonn, Germany, until 1791 when he left for Vienna, Austria, then the leading musical and cultural capital of the world. Soon this young virtuoso pianist, who was clearly the heir to Haydn and Mozart, dazzled the salons of aristocrats. His first six symphonies, the first 7 quartets, and the first 15 piano sonatas mark a few of the major compositional works that are still performed on concert stages throughout the world. However, by age 28 Beethoven experienced ringing in his ears, losing the ability to hear high pitches, and faced the greatest horror for any musician: complete hearing loss. Lecture II, covering the years 1802-1827, will be held next season on November 29.
