From the Store of Treasures, Things New and Old. February 18, 2018

Wonderful music from across the centuries and reflections by a celebrated writer began the new year Sunday inter-arts programs at Gustin House. Pianist Gregory Schulte performed Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, a Haydn Sonata, and Alexina Louie’s Music for Piano, composed some 25 years ago and well-known for its individual pieces, including Enchanted Bells and Once Upon a Time. 

Guest speaker was Guy Vanderhaeghe, author of five novels, four short story collections, and two plays, and the multiple award winner of prestigious literary prizes. In an engaging and thought-provoking talk, he discussed “Childhood Memory: The Writer’s Storehouse,” and explored how early memory is often the source of many writers’ work.
