Sharon and Armen DiFilippo's spacious stone Colonial features a center hall and an elegant staircase. On the wall of the second-floor landing are large framed photos of the three DiFilippo children in First Holy Communion finery - the girls in white dresses and veils, the boy in a white suit. Memories of yesterday installed in the house the family live in today. They took up residence here in 2008, a few years after the photos were taken, when Sharon and Armen and the children moved from Collegeville to Ashbourne Estates in Schwenksville.

Leon Bridges, the 26-year-old rhythm-and-blues singer with the 50-year-old soul, will bring his high-waisted vintage slacks and his playful-to-prayerful love songs to the July 4th Wawa Welcome America! party on the Ben Franklin Parkway. Bridges, who channels Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" and Sam Cooke's "You Send Me" every time he sings his neo-soul serenades, is a young master of old-school vulnerability. "The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl," he laments on "Coming Home," the title song on his breakout 2015 debut album, which skyrocketed him from obscurity to omnipresence on the concert circuit.

Long eyelashes turn ordinary eyes magical. The trendlet That's why Russian-volume-style lash extensions - applying two to seven slivers of fiber-size hairs on a single natural eyelash to create depth and volume - will keep our eyes beautifully aflutter this spring. Where do they come from? The eyelash's glam history started in 1916, when Hollywood film director D.W. Griffith ordered a wig-maker to fashion some falsies for actress Seena Owen. The two were filming Intolerance , with Owen playing a Babylonian, and Griffith thought adding a strip of human-hair lashes would add to the character's authenticity.

MODENA, Italy - As we ascended the winding stairs into the garret of Acetaia Giuseppe Giusti, a familiar musky grape aroma wafted over us, one that had we had previously associated with ancient wine cellars carved out of chalky loam. However, it was not wine we were going to taste, but another product of grapes, authentic Balsamico di Modena, the globally renowned vinegar that, in some cases, is so precious it is served via eyedropper. Modena is a city of contrasts. Two prominent buildings pierce the azure Italian sky; the 12th-century white-marble-clad cathedral and the racy, yellow curved roof of the Enzo Ferrari museum.

If The Mysterious Affair at Styles sounds like a long-winded title, well, it's a long play with a convoluted plot. With mixed success, the Hedgerow Theatre's world premiere of Jared Reed's adaptation of this, Agatha Christie's first novel, tries to enliven the plot while keeping every clue and wrinkle. Styles is a manor in Essex, where, in 1916, the widowed Emily Inglethorp (Stacy Skinner) resides with her new, decades-younger husband, Alfred (Mark Swift). Emily's two step-sons, John (Ned Pryce)

Never a polite purveyor of antique music, Dutch keyboardist/conductor Ton Koopman immediately let Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 off its leash in his Philadelphia Orchestra debut Thursday. It was a performance with more prominent timpani than I've previously encountered, and it set the tone for a concert that could be recklessly exuberant, and even blithely imprecise. Koopman and his Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra have long been an antidote to more severe Dutch early-music specialists who stripped away the accumulated traditions of the more recent past but put too little personality in its place.
