Read the US1 March 28, 2019 article about the series - “Ride the Emotional Rollercoaster"

"A Nine-Year-Old Boy with Anger and Nausea"
Presented by Philip Heller, M.D.| Joined by Chris Burritt, D.O.
Saturday, September 21, 2019, 4:00PM to 5:00PM, ACO Campus, 4419 Route 27, Princeton NJ

Dr. Heller shares some insights about his presentation:
"Frequently, children present to a physician with symptoms of abdominal pain. Sometimes the "belly" complaints can be a direct result of unexpressed or inadequately expressed emotions. The history and treatment of this nine-year-old boy, whose parents were concerned about his anger as well as his complaints of nausea, shows how these problems may be addressed and resolved with psychotherapy without the use of medication."
- Philip Heller, M.D.

The series is free to attend. Seating is limited and advance registration is recommended. Call (732) 821-1144 or email the ACO or register on-line.

Special Event

Saturday, October 5, 2019, 4:00PM to 6:00PM
Master Class in Functional Singing with Donna Reid, Voice Teacher & Mezzo-Soprano.
Back by popular demand, voice teacher and mezzo-soprano, Ms. Donna Reid, will teach a Master Class in Functional Singing on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at the ACO campus in Princeton, NJ from 4:00PM to 6:00PM. For voice students, professional vocalists and anyone who loves to sing!

If you ever wonder why some days you can sing easily and other days you can't, or why you always seem to be stuck singing in a lower voice when you really want to hit those high notes, then this is the class for you. For those who have attended the class before, Ms. Reid says, "There's always something new to learn!"

Ms. Reid will explain her approach about how the voice functions, with a focus on how emotional tension may affect it. The class will include live vocal demonstrations. Anyone interested in volunteering to work with Ms. Reid in front of the class as part of a demonstration should send an email to aco@orgonomy.org.

Ms. Reid maintains a private studio on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where she teaches musical theater performers and classical singers. She was on the faculty of The American Musical and Dramatic Academy for 19 years. She attended the School of Music at Northwestern University and sang professionally in Europe for nine years specializing in contemporary opera. She has performed in concerts and operas throughout Europe, appeared on Italian and German television, and has recorded various contemporary songs and operas. She was associate (and wife) to Cornelius L. Reid from 1994 until his death in 2008. Cornelius Reid was a noted singing teacher, author of five books on vocal pedagogy and the father of Functional Vocal Training. She assisted Mr. Reid in the numerous master classes he presented in the United States, Canada and Europe and acted as translator during those classes given in various cities in Germany and Austria. Ms. Reid teaches master classes in Germany in association with the Free Your Voice seminars (https://www.freeyourvoice.de) and she also teaches in Paris, France in association with Broadway in Paris. (https://www.broadwayinparis.com).

ACO Movie Night & Open Discussion
Saturday, October 26, 2019, 7:00PM

On Saturday, October 26, at 7:00PM at the ACO Campus in Princeton, NJ, ACO Movie Night & Open Discussion will feature Screenagers, a documentary by physician and filmmaker, Delaney Ruston. Dr. Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore the impact of social media, video games, academics and internet addiction on relationships. Through poignant, and sometimes unexpectedly funny stories—along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists and brain scientists—Screenagers reveals how tech time affects a child’s development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

Join us as we explore the healthy and unhealthy effects of screen time on the emotional and social functioning of the young people in your life. Howard Chavis, M.D. and Susan Marcel, D.O. will lead the discussion after the film. 

Admission to Movie Night is free. We hope you and your teenagers will join us! Please come early for complimentary pizza, popcorn and
beverages before the movie at 6:45PM. For reservations call (732) 821-1144, email the ACO or register on-line.
