Lecture/Seminar Teaching Tips #3: Teaching with PowerPoint 2016-09-28 09:30:00
Description

PowerPoint can be an effective teaching tool but is instead often a distracting impediment to learning. We will focus on the differences between presenting and teaching in PowerPoint, the PowerPoint teaching strategy of "less-is-more", the do's and don'ts of teaching with PowerPoint, and guidelines for animating PowerPoint slides to enhance teacher-student communication. Participants are encouraged to bring questions and examples.

Lecture/Seminar The Bald Eagle: from Victoria in 1953 to Today 2016-09-28 19:30:00
Description

BIRDERS’ NIGHT - Victoria Natural History Society

Few species have responded to human attention as have the bald eagles. When David Hancock started watching eagles in the early 1950s in and around Victoria they were rare, distrustful and darn right hard to find. Today some people consider them overabundant in specific locations. That story of change is really due to the change in human attitudes—we have adapted to eagles and they have accepted us. David’s 65 years of following this mutual befriending is the story of his illustrated talk. Bring your favorite eagle story.

Film LO AND BEHOLD: Reveries of the Connected World 2016-09-28 21:00:00
Description

LO AND BEHOLD: Reveries of the Connected World

Director: Werner Herzog, USA, 2016, 98 minutes

“HERZOG WEAVES A FANTASTICAL TALE.” –The Guardian

Werner Herzog’s documentary takes a curious, awe-struck, and terrified look at the origins and future of the web and the interconnected reality it’s begat. It’s a masterful inquiry into technological evolution. To the director, that development has spawned innovation that few science fiction writers ever dreamed of and yet it’s also created a potential tomorrow fraught with harrowing emotional, social, moral, and philosophical dilemmas apt to give a rational person (or a genius like Elon Musk) ceaseless nightmares. –The Playlist

“YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THE INTERNET DISCUSSED LIKE THIS.” –indieWire

For those looking for a ride through our modern technological world, or indeed a preview of what is to come, this is it.”The Guardian

Music Galiano Ensemble of Victoria 2016-09-28 20:00:00
Description

You are warmly invited to join the Galiano Ensemble of Victoria for the opening concert of their 17th season!  In this tribute to German and Austrian music, the Galiano Ensemble is presenting an assortment of delightful pieces from four composers.

Felix Mendelssohn was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor born in 1809.  Considered by many to be the only musical prodigy of the 19th century who could rival Mozart in stature, String Sinfonia No.4 was written when Mendelssohn was only 12 years old!  Mendelssohn was strongly influenced by the music of J.S. Bach and his later works were notable for their energy, ebullience and drama.  He lived only until the age of 38.

Hans Gál was born near Vienna in 1890 and became a noted composer, music teacher and author.  His musical style came from the Austro-German tradition, particularly 18th century Viennese composers, but he developed his own wonderful style without regard to prevailing fashions.  After fleeing to London in 1938 because of his Jewish heritage, he eventually settled in Scotland and remained there for the rest of his life.  Interest in his large volume of works has revived since his death in 1987.

Paul Hindemith, a German violist, violinist, teacher and conductor born in 1895, is thought to have been one of the most important composers of his generation.  He is also said by some to be the most overlooked composer of the 20th century.  His focus shifted from chamber music such as Five Pieces for Strings in the 1930s to symphonies and operas.  His relationship to the Nazis was complicated by the fact his wife was partly Jewish and the controversy surrounding his work led him to emigrate to Switzerland in 1938 and then to the US in 1940.  He eventually returned to Switzerland in 1953 and lived for another 10 years.

Carl Reinecke was a German teacher, conductor and pianist as well as a prolific composer.  In 1860, Reinecke was appointed director of the Gewandhaus Orchestra concerts in Leipzig, and professor of composition at the Conservatorium, a post that was previously held my Mendelssohn. He died in 1910 at the age of 85.

Conductor Yariv Aloni and the orchestra promise an entertaining evening of wonderful chamber music so be sure to put this in your calendar!
