Quentin Schultze - Listen to Love

Mar 27, 2017 | 7:00 PM | John and Alice Butler Hall - Heritage Center

We live in a time of fear and conflict in education, politics, religion, media, and family. Everyone seems to have an opinion, but does anyone really want to listen? Listening is the most radical, life-changing, integrity-building human action. Only when we truly listen we can begin to love one another. It is the prelude to love in every area of life. Dr. Quentin Schultze is a communication professor, author, speaker, mentor, and master teacher who proclaims the good news that virtuous communication can overcome many of our personal and social problems.

Chris Botti with the Columbus Symphony

Apr 1, 2017 | 7:30 PM | Heritage Center – John and Alice Butler Hall

Rossini’s version of this classic-fairy tale is a vocal and comedic romp! A wise magician takes the place of the fairy godmother and Don Magnifico, the girl’s father, rants and raves instead of a wicked stepmother, but the nasty stepsisters, Prince Charming and a glass slipper prove, beyond all question, that this is the fairy tale we all know and love. When combined with hilarious characters and situations set to some of Rossini’s finest music, it becomes comic opera at its most exhilarating and often frenzied best!
