The Logan Wintergarden Series con
tinues with the DaPonte String
Quartet on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at Penn
State Erie, The Behrend College.
Guests are invited to bring a brown
bag lunch to the noontime concert in
the Reed Union Building and enjoy
the group’s rich, expressive Hungar
ian style. All performances in the Lo
gan Series are free and open to the
public. The DaPonte String Quartet
is made up of Dean Stein, first vio
linist; Ferdinand Liva, violin; Mark
Preston, viola; and Myles Jordan,
cello. All graduates of the Juilliard
School of Music, the group formed a
permanent ensemble in 1991 while
working in Philadelphia. Although
each player is a virtuoso in his own
right, the group blends to achieve pre
cision and perfection as an ensemble.
Its repertoire includes traditional
Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms
along with newer composers Comolli,
Kaufamn, and Reiprich. Hailed by
The Philadelphia Inquirer as having
“incredibly rich, expressive tone
and....mellifluous phrasing,” the
DaPonte String Quartet performs
chamber music on an intimate, per
sonal level that touches and involves
the audience. The ensemble, which re .orded two CDs, was awarded
a Ru'-s! Residency Grant by Cham- •
ber Music America and the National
Endowment for the Arts in 1995. Mu
sic at Noon; The Logan Wintergarden
Series at Penn State Erie brings world

tion. For more information, please

The Penn State Erie Open House
Nights in Astronomy Series contin
ues Thursday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m.
with “Sunspots, Sunquakes, solar Tor
nadoes, and Neutrinos,” presented by
Dr. James LoPresto, professor of
physics and technology at Edinboro
University. LoPresto’s lecture, which
is free and open to the public, will take
place in Room 101 of the Behrend
Science Building. With the develop
ment of helioseismology, or the study
of “sunquakes,” and improved satel
lites, many new and more detailed ob
servations of the sun have recently be
come possible. Observations of
sunquakes and “solar tornadoes” are
leading to a more complete under
standing of the sun’s activity and
magnetism. Detailed images of the
Sun’s corona show phenomena that
act as particle accelerators, a phenom
enon that may be related to solar flares
and mass ejection. Dr. LoPresto will
also discuss recent advances in tele
scopes and a theory that appears to
be providing answers to difficulties in
understanding the number of neufmo
particles that the sun emits. Open
House Nights in Astronomy, which
take place in the Otto Behrend Sci
ence Lecture Hall, are free and open
to the public. Astronomical observing
will take place following the lectures,
weather permitting. For more infor
mation, contact the Penn State Erie
School of Science at 898-6105.

The International Film Series con
tinues with the showing of the Ger
man film Wings of Desire on Mon
day, October 19 at 7:00p.m. in the
Reed Union Building Lecture Hall.
One of the most notable films of the
1980’s, Wings of Desire was directed
by Wim Wenders, combines unex
plainable fate with present-day hope.
The supernatural love story reveals
the destiny of an angel, portrayed by
Bruno Ganz, who falls in love with a
beautiful trapeze artist and decides to
enter the mortal world of earthly be
ings. Set in Germany, the cinematog
raphy is full of footage of a new and
prosperous Berlin, a far cry from the
bleak city of old. Director Wim
Wenders captured the Best Director
Award at Cannes for the film in 1987
and Paris, Texas in 1984. The films
of Wenders trace the development of
and public education programs.
Step out against heart disease and
stroke by supporting the efforts made
last weekend. It’s easy to do. Your
donation to the American Heart Asso
ciation of whatever you can afford will
help all of us to take stand against this
#1 killer of Americans.
If you would like to make a dona
tion on your own, please place it in an
envelope with your name and a note,
and send it to the Matchbox Players d
