Jon Crispin: The Willard Suitcases Project, 11/5 from 7 – 8 PM at Auburn Public Theater. $10 admission for public, $5 for members.

  • Photographer Jon Crispin presents his innovative work cataloguing the remaining suitcases from the patients at Willard Asylum on the shores of Seneca Lake. When the institution closed in 1995, four hundred suitcases containing the belongings for former patients were discovered. Crispin’s photographs the suitcases and their contents serve as a vignette of the patients’ lives, portrayed with integrity and dignity. Crispin will also discuss his work on documenting the prison architecture across the state of New York.

  • Join accomplished regional pianist Joel Morehouse and operatic soprano, Rebecca Carr for two performances of classics from the European opera cannon accompanied on the museum’s 1872 Steinway piano. Carr’s voice is characterized as “big, vibrant soprano” that brings “touching” and “remarkable” renditions to the characters she portrays. Her repertoire includes the title role of Puccini’sMadama Butterfly, Violetta in La Traviatta, and Desdemona in Otello. Morehouse has served for over ten years as liturgical music director at churches throughout the region. He currently is employed at St. Mary’s Church in Auburn, where he directs a Gregorian Chant ensemble and a polyphonic choir.

Tours end with Christmas carols sung around the family’s 1872 Steinway piano.
