Vera Danchenko-Stern founded the Russian Chamber Art Society (RCAS) in 2009 to share rarely performed Russian romances (art songs) that receive little of the recognition that Russian operas obtain. This autumn, RCAS will host intimate, monthly, musical programs, Tea Time with Vera, on Sunday afternoons. Streamed via the Zoom platform, viewers will enjoy a memorable musical performance as well as pre- and post-performance conversation with insight into the pieces. Join Vera and her friends for tea this Sunday, November 15 at 3 pm.

Violinist Cho-Liang Lin
Violinist Cho-Liang Lin will provide an online concert under the banner of the Front Row Series of Chamber Music at The Barns at Wolf Trap. Born in Taiwan, Lin pursued his musical dreams in earnest at the age of 12 when he studied in Australia and then moved to the United States at age 15 to study at Julliard in New York City with Itzhak Perlman's teacher, Dorothy DeLay. He launched his concert career at age 20 with the New York Philharmonic under the direction of Zubin Mehta. Mr. Lin's free, streaming concert is available from Sunday, November 15 through Friday, November 20 and will include pieces composed by Lukas Foss, Antonin Dvorak, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis and Social Justice
"The House of Truth" was a meeting place and political salon for young progressives and liberals from 1912 to 1919 that influenced its core members through the start of President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Located near Dupont Circle at 1727 19th Street, NW, the core group included future Supreme Court Associate Justices Louis D. Brandeis and Felix Frankfurter, journalist Walter Lippman, future Secretary of War Henry Stimson, and Mount Rushmore sculptor Gutzon Borghum among others. Join the online discussion on Wednesday, November 18 at 3 pm to learn how the "House of Truth" regulars fought for Brandeis's Supreme Court confirmation in 1916. Brad Snyder, Constitutional Law Professor at Georgetown University and author of The House of Truth: A Washington Political Salon and the Foundations of American Liberalism, and Jennifer M. Lowe, Director of Programs and Strategic Planning, Supreme Court Historical Society, lead the discussion. The Capital Jewish Museum and the Supreme Court Historical Society present the program.
Honesty and Courage in a Time of Polarization
When suspicion and distrust seem rife, join scholars Robert P. George and Cornel West in a discussion on the values of honesty and courage. Hear George and West review how faith and reason help us rise above polarization. Howard University Professor Cheryl Sanders and President of the Institute on Religion and Democracy Mark Tooley are the panelists for this conversation. A Q&A will follow the panel session. This event takes place on Wednesday, November 18 at 6:30 pm, at Museum of the Bible and virtually online through Zoom.
