The quadrennial Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, widely recognized as one of the world's most important, was organized by a group of music teachers and citizens from Fort Worth, Texas in 1962 to commemorate Van Cliburn's historic achievement, and is dedicated to the discovery of the world's finest pianists. Finalists come from around the world for a grueling series of recitals and participate in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. For more information visit www.ArtsSA.org or call (210) 226-2891.

If you hit the snooze button on TV fitness guru Jillian Michaels’ “powerful” Maximize Your Life tour, fear not: The “madmen and women” of the Aesthetic of Waste also have a “life-changing” offering up their sleeves—and they probably won’t bark in your face, encourage you to shed pounds or shame you for drinking margaritas. But as the hard-to-categorize collective (Seth Larson, Abigail Entsminger, Judson Rose and Noah Voelker) has proven with productions like the award-winning We Stole This and the AtticRep collab White, anything’s possible. Billed as a “grotesque, chaotic vision of Americana and tragedy,” The Most Important Night of Theater You Will Ever Attend follows four young artists as they put a “lewd, cataclysmic” spin on the world premiere of playwright Eric Pfeffinger’s This Meeting Will Change Your Life.

Mysticism is an intensified form of everyday religious thinking. In order to be a mystic, one must be intensely committed to and engaged in one’s faith. This talk will discuss this, with particular emphasis on four medieval mystics — St Francis of Assisi, Ibn Arabi, Mevlana Rumi, and Abraham Abulafia— before turning to consider how such thinking has inspired the contemporary Turkish theologian and social philosopher, Fethullah Gulen, and how his passion for interfaith, multicultural dialogue is rooted in mysticism and expresses itself in an ever-expanding call to altruistic service of others.
