May 17     The Passion of Opera 

Presented by Margaret Montet, Information Literacy Librarian at Bucks County Community College.  Since the Renaissance, composers have been combining music, acting, storytelling, costumes and scenery with symbolism, mythology and history to create a comprehensive musical experience.  Explore the history of opera and discover the innovators of the art form such as Gluck, Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, Bizet and Wagner.  This lecture will include a PowerPoint presentation, as well as musical examples on video and audio.  Learn how to locate, select, and prepare for your own transformative opera experience. 



May 24th     Special Animals:  Who Are They? What Makes Them Special?

Naturalist Gail Hill from the Peace Valley Nature Center will discuss the animals with some amazing adaptations that live around us. These animals need to be able to survive being eaten, finding food and staying safe. We shall explore this by taking a closer look at these animals and figuring out what makes life better for them.  We shall be checking out various taxidermy animals from mammals to reptiles to discover their means of survival.
