Chances are, if you've watched any TV lately you've already heard Los Angeles' The Frequency, although you may not know it. Their track 'Jim Gordon Part II" graces one of the new Blackberry commercials. As you can hear, The Frequency are an experimental rock band. Based upon a love of Moogs, the sound of a real Fender Rhodes piano and vintage Fender amps, the collective sound is a reflection of things old and new and The Frequency cite Pink Floyd, Air, and Mogwai as a few influential groups.

"Nancy Crow: Works from 1988-2008" Exhibition
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
27 Jun 2008
The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University presents “Nancy Crow: Works from 1988­-2008,” featuring more than 50 quilts that make it the largest exhibition ever of Crow’s work. On June 11, Crow will lecture and sign copies of her books at 7 p.m. in McConomy Auditorium in the University Center. Former Miller Gallery Director Petra Fallaux curates the summer exhibition, which opens with a reception June 12 from 5 to 8 p.m. and runs through August 15.
The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Admission is free.

Rather than assembling a “greatest hits” compilation or a chronological survey of Crow’s career, “Nancy Crow: Works from 1988-­2008” presents the works with an eye toward uncovering the artist’s process of discovery in these pivotal years. The exhibition includes examples of her quilts “Bow Tie,” “Chinese Souls” and “Linear Studies” series, as well as more than 30 works from the “Color Blocks” and “Constructions” series, including a half-dozen new quilts that will be unveiled at the exhibition.

Harmony Society Reunion
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
27 Jun 2008
On Friday, June 27th through Sunday, June 29th Historic Harmony and Old Economy Village are co-hosting the first reunion for descendants of members of the utopian Harmony Society who left the commune over 176 years ago. While the reunion is designed to bring together descendants of those who left, the event is open to the general public. Registration is $150 per person, and includes admission to Historic Harmony and Old Economy Village, a reception, workshops, two lunches, a homemade German dinner in the Harmonist’s church, and a concert by the Old Economy 1830 Orchestra and the Old Economy Singers. Pre-registration and prepayment are necessary and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, or to register, please contact the site at (724)266-4500, ext. 101.

The Harmony Society was a religious communal group which emigrated from Duchy of Wurttemburg (Germany) in 1804, first settling in Butler County, and there building the community of Harmony along the ConnoquenessingCreek. During the winter of 1832, after building their third and final home, Economy, on the Ohio River and eighteen miles north of Pittsburgh, a series of events led to a major rift amongst the members of the Harmony Society. On March 6, 1832, Two hundred and fifty six members resigned the organization and left to settle across the River in what is now known as the town of Monaca. Prior to the Schism, there were seven hundred and seventy-one Society members living in Economy. The stories of these Seceeders are told in an exhibit, Out of Harmony, in Old Economy Village’s Visitor Center. The exhibit draws upon the extensive research of Eileen Aiken English, retired professor from California University of Pennsylvania.
The 2008 Harmony Society Family Reunion will begin in Harmony, PA on Friday evening, June 27, with a wine and cheese reception and a tour of the buildings which the Society built in 1804. On Saturday, guests will visit Old Economy Village, in Ambridge, and attend several workshops featuring speakers who will discuss the history of secession within the Society, the people who left, their reasons for leaving, and what happened to many of them after they left.

Dr. Donald Pitzer, Professor Emeritus of History, University of Southern Indiana, and former Director of the Center for Communal Studies at that University will lead the program by discussing “How the Harmonists Suffered Disharmony.” Dr. Walter Brumm, Board member of the Communal Studies Association and of the Friends of Old Economy Village; Eileen Aiken-English; and the Rev. Larry Waltz of the 1804 Blooming Grove break-away community in Lycoming County, will present their research and lead group discussions. Descendants of the Society will be encouraged to share their families’ history in these sessions.

A tour of the site's historic buildings and gardens and a walking tour of Historic Ambridge round out the day. In the evening, a special German dinner with a concert by the Old Economy 1830 Orchestra and OEV Singers will be presented in St. John’s Lutheran Church, the Harmonists’ original house of worship. The weekend concludes with services at St. Johns and a walking tour of Old Phillipsburg (Monaca) on Sunday morning.
