It’s not too late to get tickets to hear former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins speak tonight at Lehigh University (Zoellner Arts Center, 420 E. Packer Ave., Bethlehem). Notations: Billy Collins begins at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening, April 14, 2015. (I suspect there may also be a book signing of one or more of his books of poetry, after the event.)
Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door for Friday night’s Celtic Concert at Pottstown Public Library (500 E. High Street, Pottstown):
Charlie Zahm is one of the most sought-after Celtic singers on the East Coast and the Pottstown Regional Public Library is lucky to be hosting this amazing performer for one night of music. His knowledge of Irish and Scottish stories and deft guitar skills will entertain everyone.
Refreshments will be provided by Manatawny Still Works. Manatawny Still Works is a new, local company that offers five hand-crafted, quality spirits. $15.00/Adult and $10.00/Child
And while you won’t need a ticket to hear the Coventry Singers perform on Saturday, April 18th, you will need to get to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church (81 Main Street, Pennsburg) before the concert begins at 3 p.m. in order to be sure of having a seat. The concert, Reflections and Celebrations of Life, features Gabriel Faver’s Requiem, and includes Seal Lullaby by Eric Whitacre, William Byrd’s Haec Dies, and the traditional spiritual Ain’t No Grave Can Hold My Body Down.
You will need to reserve your spot before Sunday, April 19, 2015 in order to paint the specially designed just for Make Music Upper Perk artwork; call Art on Main at 267-377-5731. And don’t worry if you have never picked up a paintbrush before; everyone will be given step by step directions and personal support and help throughout the evening (along with the paint and canvas). You will have to supply your own beverages and snacks, however. Art on Main is located in East Greenville at 218 Main Street.
