Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Jazz | Jazz Quartet Performs


George Braith and his quartet will perform for the patrons and guests of the library. Multi-reedist George Braith was one of the very few jazz musicians to follow in the footsteps of Rahsaan Roland Kirk in playing multiple instruments at the same time. He developed his two-horn technique in 1961, using a stritch (a type of straight alto) and a soprano sax that were configured to be played with one hand apiece; he also developed a double horn, dubbed the Braithophone, which consisted of two sopranos welded together. Braith is featured in a mosaic in the 72nd street station of the Second Avenue Subway in the New York City Subway system.

Book Signing | The Decline of Mall Civilization: Cathedrals to Consumerism 


In 1989, filmmaker and photographer Michael Galinsky was a student at NYU majoring in Religious Studies. It was during the course of his studies that he enrolled in his first photography class “Color Photography.” At the time, and whilst considering what topic to select for his assignment, a chance visit to a shopping mall provided something of an epiphany. Observing the human ebb and flow in this ultimate of artificial environments, he realized that as a student, his interests in both anthropology and sociology meant that his view on these cathedrals to consumerism could be captured in a collection of images somewhat removed from what he considered to be a conventional take on “street photography.”

Dance Performance | Capital-D Dance: Capitalism, Race, and Dance Collide


An offering shaped specifically for the venue, Capital-D Dance draws from Tara Sheena's ongoing fascination with the ways capitalism, race, and dance collide in performance spaces. The term itself is fraught with illusion and pseudo-intellect, a way for Sheena to craft narratives in order to dilute--or disassociate--from them. It is a poem or a lecture or a table read for a dance yet to manifest. It loves dance, and Dance, enough to frustrate its borders. It is for you, and You. Welcome.

Play | Measure for Measure: An Adaptation of Shakespeare's Classic Comedy


It's 1979, Mardi Gras has been officially cancelled, yet the community is still celebrating. Temporarily left in charge by the Duke, the upright and uptight Lord Angelo has decided to crack down on the city's debauchery, arresting young Claudio for impregnating his fiancee Juliet before their wedding. When virtuous Isabella, Claudio's sister, hears of his death sentence, she begs Lord Angelo for mercy. But hypocritical Angelo propositions her instead, leaving Isabella with an impossible choice: save her soul or her brother's life. In this timely production, lovers and leaders in disguise reveal how those in power take advantage of those without it - asking the question, can the law be both just and merciful? The all-black women cast features Jasmine Batchelor (Isabella), Nora Carroll (Escalus/Juliet), Toccarra Cash (Lucio), Alfie Fuller (Pompey), Adrian Kiser (Angelo), Gabrielle Murphy (Provost), Jacqueline Nwabueze (Understudy), Latonia Phipps (Mariana/Overdone), and Grace Porter (Duke).

Staged Reading | Not All Canoes Sail Back Home: Sojourn in Ghana


In the 1960s, under the first president, Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana was the undisputed headquarters of freedom fighters from all over the black world. Three truly exemplary women, who are now among the giants of the literary world, made Accra their home base, including two expatriates--Maya Angelou from North America, Maryse Conde, from Guadeloupe--and a Ghanaian, Efua Sutherland. They were in the early years of their womanhood, and their careers were in such a budding stage that not even the most intrepid soothsayer could have dared predict their later spectacular achievement. But what part did their Ghanaian sojourn play in their maturation--literary, political, and otherwise? What effect did their presence have on the local population and on the eventual failure of the Nkrumah revolution? This play is a fiction born out of imagined scenarios between these three great black female writers, brought together at that most momentous period of our history, when one daring, visionary black man tried to change our racial destiny from that of perennial victims.
