Concert | The Great Hungarian Songbook (online)


Musical director Norbert Káel takes an innovative approach to reworking old Hungarian hits, but this time around we will travel from the 1950s to the 1990s. There will be a few lesser-known songs to complement the old classics, all perfomed by the vocal duo of Dóri Behumi and Dénes Pál with the help of the Jazzical Trio, supplemented by string and brass sections. György Böhm will direct the concert. The pianist and composer Norbert Káel has long insisted that there is a treasure trove of 20th century Hungarian songs which - when reinterpreted with the help of a more up-to-date sound - can be enjoyed and loved by people of all ages. György Böhm, one of the most well-known and in-demand theatrical directors in Hungary, worked alongside Káel for the very first Great Hungarian Songbook show, and so perfect was their working relationship that they are still together for the third edition. The evening's two popular singing stars not only make for a captivating pair in photos, but also on the stage! In addition to her feminine qualities and vocal abilities, Dóri Behumi's playful nature makes her the ideal choice for the starring female role, while Dénes Pál's versatility as a partner is only matched by his fantastic vocal skills and charm as a performer. Once again, the main musical accompaniment will be provided by the Jazzical Trio, which was founded by Norbert Káel in 2014. In addition to the pianist, the trio features two highly respected artists from the Hungarian jazz scene, double bassist Péter Oláh and drummer András Lakatos Pecek. They will be joined by a string section, a trumpet player, saxophonist and a guitarist to ensure an accomplished sound.

Lecture | Architect Andrew Waugh on Timber


A presentation by London-based architect Andrew Waugh. As a pioneer of the application of CLT (cross laminated timber) systems in the U.K., Waugh has been a key voice in the Mass Timber movement and a strong influence on many architects in North America. Waugh is a founding director of Waugh Thistleton Architects, a British firm established in 1997 alongside Anthony Thistleton. In 2009, they completed Murray Grove, the world's first nine-story mass timber building, located in London. As an advocate for sustainable, engineered wood in architecture, Waugh has dedicated his practice to developing efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and ambitious architectural solutions that minimize resource use. Among the firm's significant projects is Dalston Works, a 10-story, 121-unit development completed in 2017, which was the largest CLT (cross-laminated timber) building in the world at the time and a landmark in high-density urban housing. The firm's recent award-winning Black & White Building is now the tallest engineered timber office building in central London. Waugh Thistleton Architects' extensive research has resulted in multiple open-source publications, such as "New Model Building: Building Net Zero Homes," which provides principles and guidance for the design and construction of multi-story mass-timber housing.

Book Discussion | Delivering Destruction: American Firepower and Amphibious Assault from Tarawa to Iwo Jima (online)


Chris Hemler's book is the first detailed study of American triphibious (land, sea, and air) firepower coordination in the Pacific War. In describing the Amphibious Corps' development of fire coordination teams and tactics in the Central Pacific, Hemler underlines the importance of wartime adaptation, battlefield coordination, and the primacy of the human element in naval combat. He reveals the untold story of American fire control and coordination teams in the Central Pacific. Through “bottom-up” adaptation and innovation, American troops and officers worked out practical solutions in the field, learning to effectively apply and integrate air and naval support during a contested amphibious assault.
