The Row House Forums: Hamilton, Schmamilton!

What’s the Big Deal?

Henry R Bleattler, PhD

Chair of the Program in Media, Culture and the Arts, The King’s College, NYC

We’ve asked Harry to get on a train and come out to Lancaster because, like any New Yorker, he needs the rest. So, he’ll speak on Hamilton, answer questions, and hang out with us till late at night. He’ll be in bed by Midnight, and he’ll sleep like an Amish baby in swaddling clothes. We’ll feed him a farmer’s breakfast and show him the market and allow him to return at his leisure and NEVER ONCE take him to the faux-Amish traps on Route 30. We promise. That’s how we roll with our distinguished guests.

Henry “Harry” Bleattler, PhD, is currently the chair of the program in Media, Culture, and the Arts, a program that he helped create at The King’s College where he is also Associate Professor of History and the Humanities and the Coordinator of Faculty-led Summer Study Programs in Europe.  His PhD is in the Humanities, focusing on the intellectual and cultural history of Renaissance and Reformation Europe. Additional research interests include ancient history with a particular focus on the world of myth, the origins of civilization, ancient Egypt and the Ancient Near East, and the rise of Christianity in Late Antiquity.  Additional degrees have been earned at Regent University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Now in his thirteenth year at The King’s College, he teaches courses in Western Civilization, the humanities, cultural history, and museum studies.   He has taken students on study programs to Egypt, Italy, and biannually to Paris.  Before arriving at King’s, Dr. Bleattler was an education curator at the Mary Brogan Museum of Art & Science in Tallahassee, Florida. His experience in the museum world is reflected in his classes where he regularly takes students to the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as other important cultural arts institutions in New York City.

This engagement with the city is fundamental to his teaching pedagogy: “When you live and teach in New York City it’s not enough to look at photos in a textbook. We get to go to museums and actually see the objects that we’re reading about. Where else can you study Socrates in the classroom and then go see Jacques-Louis David’s neoclassical masterpiece, The Death of Socrates or study ancient Egypt and then walk through the Temple of Dendur at the Met?”

And where else can you can hear a waitress say, “Can I get you drinks, a while?” than right here in Lancity?

Trust Concert: The Sound Accord

Guided by a mission to explore making music through camaraderie, The Sound Accord brings together six friends with varied musical backgrounds, distinct sensibilities, and a shared love for collaboration. As a chamber-folk string sextet, they draw upon their eclectic strengths and skills to create innovative arrangements of melodies both old and new.

More than that, though, The Sound Accord seeks to push the boundaries of what string bands can be and do. In their first tour together, they embedded themselves outside Phoenix, Arizona, for a week of school visits, educational programs, and full-length concerts, sharing their vision of music making with young string players around the area. Together, they see the band not only as a musical outlet for themselves, but as a tool for helping educators and students to dream about the possibilities of making music with friends, despite traditional notions about how instruments should play together.
