Book Discussion | Sing: Find Your True Voice


Have you ever wondered how to find your own true voice? Whether you’re a professional singer, you sing in the shower, or you think you can’t carry a tune, Mary Setrakian’s new book is for you. Mary’s singing method not only unlocks the potential of the voice, but also frees the human spirit. Sing breaks down the ten elements of Mary's process, The Revolutionary Send, which connects voice technique with the emotional life. Mary’s students don’t just say their singing gets better– they say that working with Mary changes their life. Mary’s book is indeed a singing guide, but Mary also shares inspirational stories of her work with the Stars - like Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, Mary J. Blige, Bella Thorne, James Gandolfini - her students from around the world, from Italy to Australia - and her own personal stories of her journey in this work. Broadway and West End Star Sierra Boggess wrote the foreword.

Opening Reception | On the Edge of Visibility: Lessons in Transgression


Given the queer art history theme and the works therein, which genealogically deem with themes like love and idolization, it is most fitting that the exhibition opening is on the evening of Valentine’s Day. This show genealogically examines queer art history vis-a-vis depictions of libidinal desire, adulation, and admiration, finding its thematic apotheosis in works of the mid-to-late 19th and early 20th century, after the term “homosexual” was coined and came to affect self-conceptions of queerness.

Classical Music | A Capella Group Performs Romantic Vocal Work


The New York-based vocal ensemble Ekmeles has adopted an annual tradition of performing Karlheinz Stockhausen's masterwork Stimmung on Valentine's Day. The six-part, a cappella, overtone-singing work includes passages of erotic poetry, a playful connection to the romantic theme of the holiday. Sit onstage and enjoy a free drink during the performance, and mingle with the musicians and fellow concertgoers after the show. Onstage seating is first-come, first-served. Ekmeles is a vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of new and rarely-heard works, and gems of the historical avant garde. With a special focus on microtonal works, they have been praised by the New York Times for their "extraordinary sense of pitch." They are one of two winners of the 2023 Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation Ensemble Prize, and the first American ensemble to receive the honor. Doors open at 5:30 pm.

Concert | Peregary: Late-Soviet Underground and Its Current Aftersound


A piano concert by Psoy Korolenko. Pavel Lion (a. k. a. Psoy Korolenko) is a singer-songwriter, translator, columnist, scholar, Ph.D. in Russian literature, ex-artist/scholar-in-residence at Trinity College (Hartford), University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), Dickinson College (Carlisle), a visiting lecturer at Dartmouth College, a Recording Academy voting member, one of the organizers of the international open-air music festival JetLAG in US, a co-creator and participant of a few international musical projects, including the Grammy-nominated ”Yiddish Glory” (in collaboration with Prof. Anna Shternshis, University of Toronto).  Since 1996 on stage, Psoy released above 20 musical albums and several books, alone or in collaborations. His experimental one-person post-underground  folk cabaret has been significantly inspired and influenced by the late-Soviet cultural marginalia, including urban folk, amateur songs and clandestine productions. The new program, focusing on this heritage, features Psoy’s renditions of blind-spotted Soviet uncanon songs, and his own songs.

Book Discussion | My Last Innocent Year: An Affair with a Professor


An incisive, deeply resonant debut novel about a nonconsensual sexual encounter that propels one woman’s final semester at an elite New England college into controversy and chaos—and into an ill-advised affair with a married professor. It’s 1998 and Isabel Rosen, the only daughter of a Lower East Side appetizing store owner, has one semester left at Wilder College, a prestigious school in New Hampshire. Desperate to shed her working-class roots and still mourning the death of her mother four years earlier, Isabel has always felt like an outsider at Wilder but now, in her final semester, she believes she has found her place—until a nonconsensual sexual encounter with one of the only other Jewish students on campus leaves her reeling. Enter R. H. Connelly, a once-famous poet and Isabel’s writing professor, a man with secrets of his own. Connelly makes Isabel feel seen, beautiful, talented: the woman she longs to become. His belief in her ignites a belief in herself, and the two begin an affair that shakes the foundation of who Isabel thinks she is, for better and worse. As the lives of the adults around her slowly come apart, Isabel discovers that the line between youth and adulthood is less defined than she thought. A coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal, Daisy Alpert Florin's book is a timely and wise portrait of a young woman learning to trust her voice and move toward independence while recognizing the beauty and grit of where she came from.

Book Discussion | Learn About the Works of Famed Argentinian Writer Jorge Luis Borges (Online)


Read and discuss three classic stories by Jorge Luis Borges: Funes, the Memorious; The Secret Miracle; The Aleph. Moderated by Ilan Stavans. Jorge Francisco Isidoro Luis Borges Acevedo (August 1899 - 1986) was an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator, as well as a key figure in Spanish-language and international literature. His best-known books, Ficciones (Fictions) and El Aleph (The Aleph), published in the 1940s, are collections of short stories exploring themes of dreams, labyrinths, chance, infinity, archives, mirrors, fictional writers and mythology. Borges' works have contributed to philosophical literature and the fantasy genre, and majorly influenced the magic realist movement in 20th century Latin American literature. Award-winning, internationally-renowned teacher, essayist, translator, and cultural critic Ilan Stavans is the publisher of Restless Books, the Lewis-Sebring Professor of Humanities, Latin American and Latino Culture at Amherst College, and a consultant to the Oxford English Dictionary.
