Conference |
This two-day conference will commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the Ukrainian Revolution and the creation of the modern Ukrainian state.The conference will focus both on the important institutions that were founded under the Ukrainian Central Rada/Ukrainian National Republic, the Ukrainian State of Hetman Pavlo Skoropadsky, the Ukrainian National Republic under the Dyrectoria, and on the individuals that formed them. These state institutions proved to be essential in organizing and giving structure to Ukrainian political, educational, cultural and religious developments at that time. The successes and failures of these initiatives provided models that were both emulated and adjusted in subsequent years and that continue to inform Ukrainian nation-building efforts today.  The conference will examine the lasting impact of these individuals and institutions on Ukrainian culture and scholarship.

Master Class |
Internationally renowned as a brilliant innovator of the classical guitar, Paul Galbraith has been working since the 1980s towards expanding the technical limits of his instrument, besides augmenting the quantity and quality of its repertoire.These efforts have already resulted in a series of critically acclaimed recordings of works by Bach, Haydn and Brahms, along with his own arrangements of folk tunes from various countries, all of which demonstrate the originality of his musical personality. By exchanging the traditional guitar for the eight-string Brahms Guitar, which he helped to develop, Galbraith found the ideal instrument with which to interpret the challenging Classical transcriptions from his highly personal repertoire.

Opening Reception |
Sara Magenheimer presents her new video, Best is Man’s Breath Quality, in which an ancient jellyfish suggests how new positions can inform our capabilities to heal. His deep-ocean vantage allows him to comment (through an authoritative voice-over) on a truer spectrum of human behavior seen up above; and his capacity for inflicting pain on human bodies finds parallels in our capacity to embody the more nebulous and unruly forces in life. With performances featuring singing and narration, Magenheimer explores how language mutates and reproduces itself in culture. Creating abstract narratives through vernacular associations, she proposes linguistic turns more empathic than expository. The human voice and sound operate as floating signifiers, addressing the body through the disembodied. Curated by Lumi Tan and Tim Griffin.

Classical Music |
In this program, Juilliard graduate and Metropolitan Opera singer Brenda Patterson, an “out” mezzo-soprano, invites the listener to experience the power and intimacy of art song when it is offered without emotional translation. Using Schumann’s classic song cycle, “A Woman’s Love and Life,” set with new texts by contemporary lesbian poet Emily Moore, Patterson at once effaces and revivifies Schumann’s original masterpiece, reclaiming it as a modern, fully inhabitable work that speaks to our contemporary realities. This cycle will juxtapose against selections from Hector Berlioz and American songwriter Ricky Ian Gordon to explore related themes of intimacy and loss, from poet Théophile Gautier’s romanticized 19th Century “love that dare not speak its name” to the AIDS crisis of the 1990s. Renate Rohlfing will provide accompaniment on the piano.
