On Listening to Os Guinness

Os Guinness speaks this Friday night as part of the Framework Lecture series. Tenth member Bethany Brooks sent this in recounting how listening to him changed her thinking:

"In the summer of 2004, I was living in London, nearing completion of a Master's degree.  I'd made the agonizing decision to leave London and move to Philadelphia, but I had no idea what my post-student life would look like.  Two degrees in piano performance seemed to qualify me for very few 'jobs', and even more disheartening, I'd never been able to imagine an employment situation that would capture my wide range of interests and passions.
"A friend visiting from the U.S. wanted to spend time at the English l'Abri, so I went along for a day.  During the afternoon study time, as I perused the catalog of their library, the category 'Vocation' caught my eye, and I was soon listening to a cassette tape recording of Os Guinness.

Antique Pianos

We have two lovely antique pianos that are free to a good home. One is a circa 1912 Chickering Brothers (Chicago) cabinet grand with a pneumatic player system. The other is a Weser Bros. cabinet grand – beautiful oak wood and a unique patented “orchestra” feature that, when the pedal is engaged, makes it sound more like a harpsichord. We don’t know the exact year it was made, but the patent dates run from 1890 to 1897. We’ve used both of these pianos in the past, but we recently inherited a third piano and must do something with these two. We’ve tried to sell them for a year, but at this point we just want them to find a home. Please call Patrick at 484-678-2272 or Georgina at 717-917-0511.
