The Waldorf School of Garden City’s Eurythmy Teacher, Maria Ver Eecke, recently performed at the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center. Ms. Ver Eecke was invited by the University’s adjunct professor, Leonore Russell (who has served the Waldorf School of Garden City in a number of roles for many years) who also performed. Ms. Ver Eecke moved to “Arioso” by Johan Sebastian Bach. As part of the same performance, Mrs. Russell performed an Intermezzo by Brahms, and Ms. Alexandra Spadea performed “Milonga Triste” (on a theme of Sebastian Piana) composed and played by her husband, John McDowell.
Eurythmy has enjoyed a growing presence at Adelphi University thanks to the efforts of Leonore Russell who teaches eurythmy to music students there, and who organized the event. In the autumn, Mrs. Russell was recognized as the Artist in Residence by the University. We would like to thank both Ms. Ver Eecke and Mrs. Russell for sharing this unique and beautiful form of movement with the community and congratulate them for their accomplishments.
