Newly Launched Cantatas and Chamber Music Series
Last fall we launched a new performance series in a new space -- Cantatas and Chamber Music -- in conjunction with the dedication of the elegantly renovated Burleigh Cruikshank Memorial Chapel.
Featuring our professional soloists and members of the Gallery Choir, along with instrumentalists from the Philadelphia area, the Cantata series offers monthly Sunday afternoon performances in our beautiful new space. These 50-minute concerts are preceded by wine, cheese and other refreshments under the portico of the Chapel at 4:30 p.m.

The monthly speaker series meets at noon on the second Thursday at The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill. Bring your lunch and a friend. Cookies and coffee are provided. $5 donation requested. Gather at 12:00 noon; presentations begin at 12:30 p.m.

James Chan, Ph.D.
Americans began trading with China from the moment the nation was founded, and for 230 years, Americans and Chinese have fascinated, exasperated, outsmarted and profited from one another. Using photographs and illustrations old and new, James Chan will offer an entertaining historical-cultural-geopolitical economic chop suey that links stories of long ago with pressing issues of today. James Chan, Ph.D., a professor turned international business consultant, has been helping U.S. firms market American-made products and services to China and Asia for 33 years. Dr. Chan’s presentation will combine a scholar’s perspective as a cultural geographer and student of the Chinese psyche with his practical understanding of today’s China trade.
