  • Character Matters

    Aug 4, 2015
    By Dr. John Nagl, Ninth Headmaster

    Researchers from Penn State and Duke University have confirmed a lesson taught by every good professor since Socrates: character matters.

Indeed, one of the most powerful and cost-effective interventions is to help children develop core social and emotional strengths like self-management, self-awareness and social awareness — strengths that are necessary for students to fully benefit from their education, and succeed in many other areas of life."

    Learning from a master: the music of Stephen Sondheim

    Jul 30, 2015
    Darren Hengst, theater department chair

    I remember Christmas morning 25 years ago when I received the original cast recording of Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. I listened to the recording from start to finish, mesmerized by the intensity and sophistication of what I had heard. At that age, I didn’t fully understand what drew me to Sondheim’s music so much. Over time, I continued to grow fonder of the intricacies of the way in which he placed each note, perfectly married to its lyrics and using both always as a driving force moving the story line along. His painstaking details and depth of thought that go into his characters are what make his work such a gift to perform.
