Announcing the October Lecture (not quite in October)

To accommodate travel schedules, our October Lecture will be in the Last Week of September! (Because we ALL need more Spanish magic in our lives.)

Alfredo Marchese from Spain

When: Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 7:00 PM

Where: Fairview Public Library (35 Fairview Mall Drive – map)

Admission: FREE for Members ($20 for guests – tickets at the door)

Travelling all the way from Spain, Alfredo Marchese, or as he is often known on stage, Magic Alan, will present “A Different Lecture” based on 35 years experience as a professional performer. Those familiar with the famous “Spanish School of Magic” know that they have a well-earned reputation for taking card tricks and turning them into deeply deceptive, emotionally powerful card miracles. Even better is the way in which they generously offer to explain all the thinking and obsessing over details that went into it.

If there’s one thing we all need, it’ more Spanish magic in our lives!

Alfredo Marchese’s magic is intelligent, original and entertaining. But not every excellent performer is a good lecturer, too. Alfredo, however, has that rare talent of being able to marry his skills as an international professional performer with the analytical yet always practical thinking that is the hallmark of the Spanish School of Thought.

His lecture is broad and deep at the same time, teaching superlative effects, and at the same time talking about the essence of magic, which can be applied to any type of magic.
