Triphammer Arts Inc. announced a family concert featuring Dr. Seuss' enduring story, The Sneetches, performed live at the CRS Barn Studio in Ithaca on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 3:00pm, with narration by Steven Stull and musical accompaniment performed by Rochester pianists Joseph Werner and Michael Landrum. This live version of The Sneetches features the original two-piano score by Lorenzo Palomo, one of Spain's most successful contemporary composers. Also on the program will be Ravel's Mother Goose Stories for piano, with choreography by Jeanne Goddard and a group of Ithaca dancers.

Rochester physician Dr. Sidney H. Sobel commissioned The Sneetches musical score "in the hope that [the performances] will help to eradicate bullying and racism in societies everywhere." Of Theodore Geisel's original book, Dr. Sobel wrote, "The Dr. Seuss story The Sneetches describes the senselessness of acts of discrimination and prejudice in a way that is at once instructive and entertaining. I … have repeatedly observed how captivating the musical verse and its powerful message are."

It was the events of August 2017 which brought worldwide attention to the issue of the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar, who had long been persecuted and oppressed by the Burmese government and military. And despite the initial reaction to the violent displacement of over a million men, women, and children—as well as the deaths of thousands—global media outlets were slow to follow up on their first reports. With information about the genocide scarce and the call to action not nearly loud enough, it was clear to Trevor Stankiewicz, a Cornell University alum, that brief news headlines and endless statistics were not enough to move the international community to meaningful action.

On Saturday, March 23, 2019, "The Wrong Place", a new international play about the Rohingya genocide, will make its debut reading at 1pm in the Film Forum, Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, in Ithaca, New York.
