Pre-concert chat at 7:15 pm Single ticket: $60 “I saw a mighty angel descend from heaven, clad in mist.” So begins Olivier Messiaen’s introduction to this work, composed and premiered in a prisoner of war camp, which transcends its medium to become one of music’s most powerful, life-changing experiences.

da Camera: Contrasts Thursday, January 1, 1970 • 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM • Madison,NJ
Amy Yang, Piano General Admission: $35 Amy Yang, hailed by the Washington Post as a “jaw-dropping pianist who [steals] the show ... with effortless finesse,” returns to Drew with an impressive repetoire and skill. The 19th century was the age of the solo piano, and this program of mostly Romantic piano music promises a stunning performance. The exception is Avner Dorman’s (2014) three intermezzi “After Brahms”, written in reaction to Brahms’ own Three intermezzi of 1892. By programming Brahms’ and Dorman’s respective movements side-by-side rather than in sets, Ms. Yang provides a rare opportunity to compare and contrast their musical materials and expressions. The program also features shorter works — waltzes by Delibes and Sibelius, and a Brahms Hungarian Dance — as well as Schumann’s Op. 20 delightful Humoreske suite. Enjoy this glimpse into the various ideas and compositional approaches for the piano of the late 19th century.
Mansion in May 2020 -Tyvan Hill Thursday, January 1, 1970 • 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM • ,
MANSION IN MAY 2020-TYVAN HILL MORRISTOWN, NJ, June 25, 2019 – The Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center (WAMMC) is pleased to announce its 19th Mansion in May Designer Showhouse and Gardens at Tyvan Hill located in New Vernon, New Jersey. Tyvan Hill will open its doors to the public as the Mansion in May for 2020. The 10,000 square foot U-shaped brick and stone house mansion was designed by the prominent New York architectural firm of Peabody, Wilson & Brown for John Wesley Castles Jr. and his wife, Dorothea Bradford Smith, and built between 1928 and 1929. Tyvan Hill is typical of the large country residences built in New Vernon during the 1920s and features beautiful details, such as a curved staircase, paneling and elegant moldings, as well as an outdoor pool and pool house. In 1931, the Architectural League of New York awarded its silver medal to Peabody, Wilson & Brown for the firm's designs of a group of country residences, prominently including Tyvan Hill. John Wesley Castles Jr., a graduate of Yale and Columbia Law School, was first a Wall Street lawyer with the firm of Lord, Day & Lord and later an investment banker with the firm that became Smith, Barney & Co. He left the banking firm in 1941 to re-join the United States Army at the start of World War II. With the rank of colonel, he first served in the Tanks Corps at Fort Knox, Kentucky, and then served as deputy assistant chief of staff of the European Theater of Operations, based in England. Earlier, during World War I, as an Army captain, Castles served under then-colonel, later general, George S. Patton. Dorothea Bradford Smith Castles was a daughter of former Vermont Governor Edward Curtis Smith and granddaughter of J. Gregory Smith, who was governor of Vermont during the Civil War. Revisiting the country elegance of yesteryear, Tyvan Hill will once again be brought to life through the design inspirations of some of the metropolitan area’s leading interior designers and will feature approximately 40 design spaces, as well as multiple beautifully designed landscape areas. Mansion in May 2020 will be open to the public from May 1 to May 31, 2020 and will be available for private tours and private events. Advanced tickets will be available online and at select local retail locations in early 2020.
