Apollo Chamber Players 

York College will welcome the Houston-based Apollo Chambers Players, a group whose mission is to explore the cultural and folkloric influences in classical music, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, in DeMeester Recital Hall, Wolf Hall.  

The performance is open to the public free of charge.  

The quartet won the Chamber Music America’s prestigious Residency Partnership award and has performed for sold-out audiences at Carnegie Hall twice in the past five years. It was the first American chamber ensemble to record and perform in Cuba since the embargo relaxation. Apollo is featured frequently on American Public Media’s nationally-syndicated program "Performance Today." 

Apollo is a passionate advocate of contemporary music. In 2014, the organization launched a  project to commission 20 new multicultural works by the end of the decade. Now "20×2020" features a roster of the world’s leading composers, including Grammy winners Libby Larsen and Christopher Theofanidis. Apollo also partners with schools, universities, at-risk youth centers, refugee and veterans service organizations, hospitals, airports and public libraries, providing performances, educational programs and entrepreneurship lectures that impact a wider, underserved audience.

Vision screenings for children 

The Jacobus Lions Club Inc. is conducting free vision screenings for children 6 months to 6 years of age. 

The screenings will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at the Jacobus Lions Club Ambulance Building, 18 S. Main St., Jacobus, during the Christmastime in Loganville event. 

The Jacobus Lions Club encourages families to bring their children in for a free vision screening. The actual screening takes less than a minute. The Jacobus Lions want to make sure that correctible vision problems do not stand in the way of children learning and seeing the world, clearly. The screening event is part of a nationwide initiative called Lions KidSight USA.
