To Build: My Decade With the Ethical Society of St. Louis

August 27, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Watch it live on our YouTube Stream.

Summiting ten years of membership, Kyle Nienhaus shares his experiences with the Ethical Society of St. Louis including reflections on personal growth, challenges still to be met, memories of friends along the way, and hopes for our children’s future. Humanist values are human values worth wanting, and Kyle intends to show the “how-come?” and the “what-for?” of that age-old question: “Why?”

Member Kyle Nienhaus is an independent philosopher and musician, author of the forthcoming Humanist, All Too Humanist: A Nietzsche Interpretation and trained at Berklee College of Music. He was born and raised in St. Louis where he lives with his wife Nikki and their daughter Lorelai.

This Platform will feature violin music by Hannah Frey and Sam Moreas. Violinist Hannah Frey is a freelance musician and educator in St Louis. She is first violinist of the Perseid Quartet, a member of Third Millennium World’s Fair, and plays regularly with the Metropolitan Orchestra of St Louis. She has performed with many other area groups including the St Louis Symphony and the St Louis Chamber Soloists, and she was Concertmaster of Winter Opera St Louis for over a decade. She teaches violin and chamber music at Washington University of St Louis, teaches beginning violin in the Kirkwood School District, and maintains a large private studio at her home. Hannah received her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music with Linda Cerone and William Preucil.

Sam Moraes is the founder of GreenHouse Studio, a teaching and event space in Webster Groves. Sam completed an undergraduate degree in violin performance at the Eastman School of Music and graduate degrees in violin performance and pedagogy at the Cleveland Institute of Music. She has spent the last five years teaching, performing, and defining her vision for a space that combines a passion for music making, music education, and community building. When she’s not playing violin Sam is busy chasing around a 60 lb. dog and an 8 lb. house rabbit, both on staff at Greenhouse Studio.
