Exploring the String Quartet

Explore and come to understand why the string quartet is such a wonderful combination of instruments. We will demonstrate how our instruments complement each other and explain how we communicate musically with each other. In the process we will perform some of our favorite string quartet music providing interesting tidbits about the music and composers we play. Questions will be welcomed.

When Death Is Welcome: Hastening Dying Ethically, Legally, and with Palliative Support
The class will begin with a brief but comprehensive review of legally permissible ways for a patient to hasten death, including their major respective advantages and disadvantages to patient and family. Ethical arguments – some readily accepted, some highly controversial – will then be explored, particularly those about several of the less well-known or understood options. Special attention will be given to options for hastening death for those who wish to avoid living into the final stages of progressive dementia (including Alzheimer’s).
