For over 100 years, the Beaux-Arts beauty known as Grand Central Terminal (a.k.a Station) has been a testament to the ingenuity and ambition of a great city, impressing both travelers and visitors with its wonderful architecture and pulsating vibe. Its history is a story of immense wealth, great engineering, a few accidents, a planned sabotage and one terrific ceiling, but most importantly a story of survival and rebirth.

No one knows who fired the first shot in Elaine, Arkansas in 1919, triggering one of the deadliest race riots in United States history. That stark moment was a turning point for American civil liberties, propelling changes to our criminal justice system and paving the way for the Civil Rights movement. Actors will read selections from J. Chester Johnson’s beautiful poetic rendering about one of the worst genocides in American history, with accompanying dance by the Movement Choir and a multimedia presentation.

Classical Music |
The Olin Conductorless Orchestra, an innovative ensemble that performs collaboratively, minus conductor, will present a concert of classic and contemporary works. The program includes Gershwin’s An American in Paris, as well as works by Shostakovich, Mozart, and Benny Goodman. Performing without a conductor, OCO features instrumentalists in leadership and collaborative roles. Dedicated to orchestral performance in the concerted spirit of chamber music, the orchestra forges individual participation, active listening, and group-motivation into performances that have established it as the only conductorless orchestra composed of engineers in the world. Based at Olin College near Boston, OCO has an essentially flat hierarchy that incorporates an ever-evolving sense of culture and cooperation as a working ensemble. OCO functions as a team of musicians—regardless of position—comprising students, faculty, and external guests, all dedicated to making good music with intensity, camaraderie, excitement and humor.

The celebrated Newman and Oltman Guitar Duo will perform works by composers associated with the MannesSchool of Music, including Aaron Copland, Clarice Assad, as well as current composition faculty members Paul Moravec, Lowell Liebermann, David Loeb and Robert Cuckson. In keeping with the duo’s tradition of inviting Mannes students to perform with them on their Mannes concerts, mezzo-soprano Tal Heller will join them for a set of Aaron Copland songs.  Hailed as a “revelation to hear” by The Washington Post, the Newman and Oltman Guitar Duo’s phenomenal musicianship places them solidly at the top of their field. Their innovative programming, matchless technique and ensemble precision, combined with their commitment to expanding the repertoire for guitar duo, make them a chamber ensemble of world renown.
