Explore history of Clean Air Act at SC Wednesday @ Sheridan College
Dec 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery will host a lecture on “Clean Air — Then and Now: The Role of Catalysts and Computers” on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.

The lecture will take a retrospective look at the reasons for the enactment of the 1970 Clean Air Act, which led to the use of catalytic converters as standard equipment on all American cars produced since 1974.

Today, exhaust emissions from our cars are 98 percent lower than they were in the early 1970s. Which would not have been possible without the co-development of catalyst and computer science. The lecture will include examples of how the automotive industry could match scientific advances in chemistry and electronics to accomplish what was thought impossible 40 years ago. Robert McDowell will present the lecture.

McDowell graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Villanova University while working in the research and development group of Johnson Matthey, the largest automotive catalyst company. He was part of the team that brought the first commercial three-way catalyst from concept into production and has manufactured emission control catalyst on four continents. He currently advises a diverse set of clients working in the R&D and prototyping areas, including lithium ion batteries, biofuels, precious metal recycling and emission control catalysts.

Ten Tenors to celebrate holidays in Sheridan @ WYO Theater
Dec 21 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Ten Tenors will celebrate the holidays in Sheridan on Dec. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the WYO Theater.

According to organizers, The Ten Tenors are one of Australia’s greatest entertainment success stories. More than 90 million people across the globe have heard their vocal power and experienced their charm and camaraderie.

While the group has had success on its own, The Ten Tenors have also performed alongside music legends such as Andrea Bocelli, André Rieu, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Rod Stewart, Alanis Morissette, Willie Nelson and Christina Aguilera.

“So many people, particularly men, turn up to a show, having been dragged by their wives, arms folded, thinking they’re going to watch us croon to the ladies and serve up yet another watery classical-crossover show,” long-serving member of The Ten Tenors Scott Muller said. “Not too far into the show they realize we are a group of down-to-earth Aussie blokes, that have power and guts in our performance and they leave not only pleasantly surprised, but fans themselves.”

The Ten Tenors include Adrian Li Donni, Cameron Barclay, Florian Voss, Jared Newall, JD Smith, Jordan Pollard, Michael Edwards, Paul Gelsumini, Sam Roberts-Smith and Virgilio Marino.

Band members include Benjamin Kiehne on the piano, David Orr on the guitar and Trent Bryson-Dean on drums.

Each year the WYO Theater brings a variety of shows to Sheridan audiences. The nonprofit has a programming committee that sorts through a number of possible selections for any given season.

The Ten Tenors made the cut as a show committee members and Executive Director Erin Butler thought the community would enjoy.

In addition, this holiday season, the WYO Theater will host “Bad Billy’s Best Christmas Pageant Ever.” The show will be performed Thursday through Sunday. The shows Thursday, Friday and Saturday will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Mars Theater.  Sunday’s show begins at 2 p.m.
