Isle of Saints: Music from Medieval Ireland
Meravelha presents a vivid musical history of Medieval Ireland through tales of her many saints. Pagan Brigid, later revered as a Christian abbess, was said to turn water to beer; Columba converted the Picts of Scotland and was part of Europe's first copyright dispute; and Patrick was captured by pirates before becoming Ireland's most famous saint. From grumpy abbots to cat-owning clerks, you'll hear colorful stories that bridge the ancient Celtic and early Christian traditions. The program includes selections spanning the 12-14th centuries from the Dublin Troper, Cormac's Psalter, the Inchcolm Antiphoner, and others. Meravelha: Teri Kowiak, director, voice; Barbara Allen Hill, Catherine Stein, voices; Jaya Lakshminarayanan, voice, harp, hurdy-gurdy; Ari Nieh, voice, percussion; Dan Meyers, winds, percussion, voice; Karen Burciaga, vielle, hurdy-gurdy

Dr. Hevia Presents: Sport Psychology & Its Contribution to Peak Performance
"What is sport psychology - and how does it contribute to peak performance?"  a lecture to be presented by Dr. Modesto Hevia.  The presentation will begin with a definition of sport psychology and a historical overview of the development of the field followed by a definition of "peak performance" (and concepts related to it) and some illustrative examples of "applied sport psychology."  Finally, because some of the principles and theoretical underpinnings of sport psych (among them positive psychology) also have application to peak performance in endeavors other than sports (for example, the performing arts) I might make reference to that as well.  Dr. Hevia notes, "It's an ambitious 45 minutes, but it is basically a taste - not a full meal."

Blind Beer Tastings
This event is designed to hone our knowledge of beer styles. By tasting beers blind (without knowing the brand or style), it forces us to rely on our senses and knowledge of style attributes to identify the beer. We will cover major style categories and even throw some curveballs in. We will learn what those style attributes are and how we can identify them through appearance, aroma and flavor.  For the remainder of 2017, tickets will be at no-cost to you. Beginning, Thursday, January 11th, tickets will be $5, each session.  Registration is limited to 8 per session! Sessions will focus on different beer styles or beers from specific countries, areas or regions:  September 28th: Hop Forward Beers October 5th: Fruit and Vegetable Beers October 12th: Malt Forward Beers October 19th: Belgian Styles October 26th: Beers for Cold(er) Weather November 2nd: Beers with Wild Yeast or Bacteria November 9th: Holiday Beers November 16th: Old Ales, Wee Heavy's and Winter Warmers
