A Heavenly Gathering for the Annual Meeting of the Swedenborg Foundation at Glencairn Museum
West Chester, PA, April 19, 2012 – An evening of spiritual readings and celestial music awaits those who attend the Swedenborg Foundation’s 162nd Annual Meeting on Friday evening, May 18, 2012, at Glencairn Museum (1001 Cathedral Road, Bryn Athyn, PA). All are invited—members as well as the general public—and there is no charge.
Titled “Moods in Emanuel Swedenborg’s Theological Works: A Musico-Verbal Exploration,” the performance will take a light-hearted look at some passages from the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg and will debunk the idea that his work is uniform or monotonous. In fact, the original Latin conveys a wide variety of moods. The evening will feature translator Jonathan Rose reading portions from the new translations, while violinists Annalisa and Greg Synnestvedt reflect the moods portrayed in the passages through musical interludes. It promises to be an evening full of expressive and inspirational thoughts interpreted through a musical lens in a magnificent setting.
After a short business meeting of the nonprofit foundation at 7:00 p.m., the performance will begin at 8:00. Guests attending the performance only will be seated after 7:30 p.m. and are invited to stay for a dessert reception after the concert where they can meet members of the board, the performers, and staff.
The Foundation will feature a display of recent publications and membership information, including the 2011 annual report outlining the activities and publications of the Foundation.
