    Character Matters

    Aug 4, 2015

    Researchers from Penn State and Duke University have confirmed a lesson taught by every good professor since Socrates: character matters. According to a study summarized in this The New York Times opinion piece, "If we want many more children to lead fulfilling and productive lives, it’s not enough for schools to focus exclusively on academics. 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

    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.
