Hi, Everybody! On Thursday April 2 at 7 pm, we're having a piano concert by the great Argentine pianist Rosa Antonelli. (You can see the announcement and registration page at
https://www.harvardwood.org/bridges ) And we urgently need three volunteers to arrive at 6:15 to carefully roll the piano (it's on wheels--no lifting involved) from the room where it normally lives to the nearby room where the performance will happen, and then, after the performance, to carefully roll it back to it's original location. These volunteers will get into the concert for free, of course! If you'd like to volunteer, email Spence Porter at [email protected] . Thanks!
If you missed the latest event from Harvardwood NYC, here is a full video of our evening with Carroll Baker!
Many thanks to The Lambs for recording our latest joint Harvardwood event featuring Helen Gallagher!
Acclaimed actress and acting teacher, Helen Gallagher, gave a talk at The Lambs about her great career in musical theater, soap operas, film and teaching the craft. Interviewed by Foster Hirsch, a profession of film at Brooklyn College and author of 16 books on theater and film. This was another great evening in collaboration with our friends at Harvardwood. The house was packed with members of The Lambs and Harvardwood, and friends and former students of Helen. Thanks to Lamb Magda Katz for videotaping Helen!Read more

Hi, Everybody! Our Spring Party is about to happen on May 18, and I'm looking forward to our big Summer Party in July, which is always one of our best events of the year! BUT--we don't yet have a place for it to happen! If you have a slightly larger than average NYC living room, or if you have access to a great party space that we can get for free or nearly free, do let me know! You can email me at [email protected]
Our friends at The Lambs have invited Harvardwood members to this performance of a Chekhov One-Act. When you RSVP to The Lambs, say that you're a Harvardwood member.
So far, we don't have a volunteer to host our wonderful Summer Party in July--so if you have a living room that's even slightly larger than the NYC average and would be willing to consider hosting, do get in touch with us at [email protected]
In general we're always looking for new (donated) spaces not just for parties but for concerts, interviews, talks, dinners, and all the other fascinating events we're putting together. If you have a space you can donate, do let us know!
As many of you know, there is an aggressive movement in Congress right now to abolish the National Endowment for the Arts. The last time there was a comparable effort was in 1995-7, when Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House and Jane Alexander was Chair of the NEA. Now our March 9 event with Jane Alexander has a different topic--but there will be a q&a, if anyone should want to ask her about this. This is an unusual opportunity, and I hope to see lots of you there! http://www.harvardwood.org/jane_alexander
