Max goes to the Moon - WC Planetarium
Hoyt 116 - Planetarium

Max (the dog) and a young girl named Tori take the first trip to the Moon since the Apollo era. Along the way, the story sets the stage for the more sophisticated science of the “Big Kid Box” sidebars, which cover topics including “Phases of the Moon,” “Wings in Space,” and “Frisbees and Curve Balls on the Moon” — all thoughtfully explained so that grownups and children can learn together about science. Toward the end, Max and Tori’s trip proves so inspiring to people back on Earth that all the nations of the world come together to build a great Moon colony from which the beautiful views of Earth from the Moon made everyone realize that we all share a small and precious planet.

This show is recommended for grades 1-7 (ages 5-12).

Admission is free!  Please register here.

Community Changemaking Workshop
McGill Memorial Library

The Office of Professional Development and Community Engagement at Westminster College is launching a new educational initiative this January and inviting community participants. The 7-week workshop brings together college students and community members who are interested in effecting positive change in the community. The weekly program takes place on Thursdays from 6:00-8:00pm at McGill Memorial Library, with the first session on January 18 and the final on February 29.

“Changing the World, One Community at a Time” will challenge how participants think about how small- and large-scale change happens in the world. The workshop will include a variety of speakers, hands-on experiences, and active ‘bridge building’ between Westminster College’s campus and the local community. Participants will reflect on their personal perspectives on how change happens and evaluate the assets and challenges of their own community, ultimately contributing to a small, collaborative project that feeds a big picture for growth.

This pilot program is open to any Lawrence County or Mercer County community members for an administrative fee of $25. The fee can be waived for those with need. For additional information about the program and to enroll, please contact Boylan at (724)494-4737 or boylanhm@westminster.edu.

Celebrity Series presents The New York Tenors
Will W. Orr Auditorium

Experience the Memorable Music, Moments and Magic of New York as the vocal artistry of Andy Cooney, Daniel Rodriguez and Christopher Macchi take audiences on a truly entertaining journey through the Greatest City in the World - New York, New York!

Andy Cooney christened by the New York Times as “Irish America’s Favorite Son”, has taken the Irish-American music scene by storm for the last 20 years. Andy’s unique tenor voice has been heard in concert halls internationally, including Dublin’s National Concert Hall to sold-out performances in New York’s iconic Carnegie Hall.

Daniel Rodriguez first captured the attention of Americans everywhere during some of the darkest moments in our nation’s history. He was the New York City police officer whose amazing voice soothed our grief in the days following September 11th.

Christopher Macchio, a classically trained tenor from the Manhattan School of Music, this NY native has been wowing audiences by combing his golden-era sound with an engaging stage presence. He has performed to sold-out theaters and events in the U.S. and Europe.
