TONIGHT: Graycliff Lecture Series Presents Gardens of the 20th Century
The Graycliff Conservancy, Inc. presents three of the foremost experts on garden and landscape design of the early 20th century in a roundtable at the Burchfield Penney. The discussion will be wide-ranging, and cover both the “big-picture” such as trends during the early part of the century, to more specific topics such as developments in design/layout and the historic plant materials used to create certain effects—many of which are still in vogue today. Appearing that evening will be: Patricia O’Donnell, Pradnya Martz and Laura Burchfield. They will be introduced by moderator Terrence Robinson.
Tickets: $5 Burchfield Penney/Graycliff members / $10 general public

The Liaisons Project: Re-Imagining Sondheim with Anthony De Mare
The Burchfield Penney presents The Liaisons Project, a landmark commissioning and concert project, conceived by concert pianist Anthony de Mare, which has invited 36 of the world's foremost contemporary composers to "re-imagine" a song by legendary musical theater composer Stephen Sondheim. The Center will host two performances Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11 at 8 PM.
The result is a brand new world-class piano repertory (Liaisons: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano) that reveals Sondheim’s influence across multiple genres and generations. Composers hail from seven countries, range in age from 32 to 76, and span the worlds of classical, pop, jazz, opera, musical theater and film.
