The theater program, in conjunction with the Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts exhibition, “Sounds of Camden,” will open the curtains on its 2014-15 season with a world-premiere new musical, Hand Me Down the Silver Trumpet. The musical celebrates the legacy of great African-American recording artists of the 1920s and 30s, and features performances of classic blues, jazz, and spirituals by students, alumni, guest artists, and a truly swinging band.
Robert M. Peck, senior fellow at The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, will discuss Hemingway’s assistance in collecting fish for an academy research project in the 1930s. Peck recently returned from a trip to Cuba – where he was accompanied by two of Hemingway’s grandsons and a number of Hemingway scholars – to help commemorate the 60th anniversary of Hemingway’s receiving the Nobel Prize for literature, as well as the 90th anniversary of Hemingway’s collecting of fish for the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia.
