10:30 AM Lecture: Prophet Jeremiah Symphony Leonard Bernstein's Jeremiah Symphony uses verses from the Book of Lamentations to portray the tragedy of the destruction of Jerusalem and Solomon's Temple in 587 BCE. The authorship of "Lamentations" is traditionally ascribed to Jeremiah, the prophet who lived during that period. In this class we will look at two separate aspects of this fascinating and most important of the biblical prophets: Jeremiah in his historical context as a political figure advocating a pacifist stance, and Jeremiah as a wrathful and tragic messenger of God's word. In the first two sessions of this class, Noah Hadas will guide us to look at two separate messengers of God's word. In the third session (May 10), Nuvi Mehta, San Diego Symphony's pre-concert lecturer who also performed as a violinist with the SD Symphony for several seasons, will present on the Jeremiah Symphony which will be performed at Copley Hall over the weekend of May 11-13. Mehta is an extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic lecturer who comes from a renowned musical family and attended conducting seminars with Leonard Bernstein himself.

6:00 PM Honoring the Medicine: Native American Healing Kenneth Cohen will share cross-cultural perspectives on the principles, ethical values and practice of Native American medicine. He will explore Native American medicine, not as a thing of the past, but as a living and still-evolving tradition. Information will be presented from traditional and modern perspectives. Interspersed with songs and stories, Ken will share his understanding of health, disease and common healing methods, such as with counseling and herbs. He will discuss barriers to understanding created by stereotypes and misconceptions promoted by the media, Hollywood, and New Age "shamanism." You will also learn about innovative programs that encourage respectful dialogue between western and indigenous science. At the end of the talk, Ken will sign copies of his award-winning book, Honoring the Medicine: The Essential Guide to Native American Healing.

7:00 PM Film: Kusama Yayoi Kusama wasn't always the biggest artist in the world. Once a budding painter sending fan mail to Georgia O'Keefe, she arrived in New York City in her twenties, in search of supporters who could see her as more than just a woman or Japanese. Her journey from obscure outsider, to art scene trouble-maker, to one of the most iconic artists of her generation, is a true inspiration. As seen on the big screen, it is as wondrous as her hallucinatory polka-dots and infinity rooms.

8:00 PM Music: Mamak Khadem Called "one of the wonders of world trance music" by the Los Angeles Times, Iranian singer Mamak Khadem captivates audiences by blending her roots in the ancient poetry and music of the Persian masters with a bold and revolutionary new sound. Her latest album, The Road, invites us on a journey that includes her native Iran as well as Serbia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Greece and Arab-Andalusia. Always searching for threads of connection, Khadem draws upon a treasure trove of traditional melodies, rhythms and poetry to create a lush sonic landscape that is nothing short of intoxicating.

8:00 PM Stage: How the Other Half Loves Britain's brilliant comic genius, Sir Alan Ayckbourn penned a fast-paced and hilariously funny theatrical meal. It stands as a classic modern comedy. A portrait of three very different marriages that turns into a spirited game of mixed doubles involving sex, jealousy and ingenious stagecraft that only Mr. Ayckbourn can design. Full of clever, razor-sharp dialogue and impeccable split-second timing and twists, HOW THE OTHER HALF LOVES promises to leave you in stitches.
