'Linny of the Valley'

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN Focus Editor in Focus

Fowler legacy extends across arts, humanities in the Lehigh Valley

Linny Fowler.

Where to begin?

And even now, it is difficult to believe that you will not see her happy, smiling face, twinkling eyes and hear her cheerful voice greeting you at the next Bethlehem First Friday in the Fowler & Pena Creations stained glass studio at the Banana Factory.

First Friday will not be the same without her.

In spirit, of course, Linny Fowler will be there, as she will be all around the Lehigh Valley at the many venues and programs she and her husband Dr. W. Beall Fowler Jr. funded through their exquisite sense of philanthropy.

From Russia, with love

State Ballet Theatre of Russia to present 'Romeo & Juliet' at State Theatre, Easton

The great city of Voronezh is 300 miles southeast of Moscow in the heart of Russia.

Voronezh, population 1.5 million, was founded in 1585 by Tsar Feodor I. It is not far from the Ukraine and has had settlements since the Stone Age.

Nestled in Voronezh is the Voronezh Choreographic Institute where dancers are chosen at the age of eight to begin their studies of dance, music and academics.
