Book Discussion | Command: The Politics of Military Operation (online)


Using examples from a wide variety of conflicts, Lawrence Freedman shows that successful military command depends on the ability not only to use armed forces effectively but also to understand the political context in which they are operating. Command in war is about forging effective strategies and implementing them, making sure that orders are appropriate, well-communicated, and then obeyed. But it is also an intensely political process. This is largely because how wars are fought depends to a large extent on how their aims are set. It is also because commanders in one realm must possess the ability to work with other command structures, including those of other branches of the armed forces and allies. In Command, Lawrence Freedman explores the importance of political as well as operational considerations in command with a series of eleven vivid case studies, all taken from the period after 1945. Over this period, the risks of nuclear escalation led to a shift away from great power confrontations and towards civil wars, and advances in communication technologies made it easier for higher-level commanders to direct their subordinates.

Reading | Musing(s): Sound and Word


Musing(s) is an experiential, interactive soundscape installation conceived and curated by poet-in-residence Mahogany L. Browne. The project is centered around the premise of poetry as therapy, both for its makers and its recipients. Musing(s) invites the audience to experience the artists' state of mind in a variety of habitats and creative midpoints: considering and concluding; being and becoming; in motion and at rest; always striving for joy. Attendees and creators alike are asked to explore complex questions: how do we inhabit space when we know we are actively heard? Can synthesized encounters feel spontaneous? Can lyrical words facilitate true healing? Join us on a journey of self-discovery with a selection of guest poets and artists.

Musical | The Comedy of Errors: A Musical Adaptation of Shakespeare's Play


Conceived by director Rebecca Martinez and composer Julian Mesri, a member of The Public Theater's 2022-23 Emerging Writers Group, this new adaptation rigorously embraces music from all over Latin America in this tale of separation and joyous reunion. With songs in English and Spanish, this new musical adaptation brings an energetic vibe to this age-old tale of two sets of twins separated by stormy seas as they overcome a baffling case of mistaken identity--and the mayhem and hilarious confusion that follows.

New York Philharmonic; Jaap van Zweden, conductor; Frank Huang, violin; The Men of the Crossing, chorus; Young People's Chorus of New York City; and Else Torp, soprano, perform The World Premiere of unEarth, a multimedia event by Julia Wolfe that, in the composer's words, "digs deep into the stories and science of our planet -- looking at forced migrations, adaptations, species land loss, and changing seas ... singing our fears and hoping for a way forward." Program Jean Sibelius (1865-1957), Violin Concerto Julia Wolfe (1958-present), unEarth About the Performers The New York Philharmonic, one of the leading world orchestras, was founded in 1842 by the American conductor Ureli Corelli Hill, with the aid of the Irish composer William Vincent Wallace. The first concert of the Philharmonic Society took place on December 7, 1842 in the Apollo Rooms on lower Broadway before an audience of 600. It is the oldest major symphony orchestra in the United States in continual existence and one of the oldest in the world. Jaap van Zweden began his tenure as the 26th Music Director of the New York Philharmonic in September 2018. He also serves as Music Director of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, a post he has held since 2012, and becomes Music Director of the Seoul Philharmonic in 2024. He has conducted orchestras on three continents, appearing as guest with, in Europe, the Orchestre de Paris, Amsterdam's Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, and London Symphony Orchestra, and, in the United States, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and other distinguished ensembles. Frank Huang joined the New York Philharmonic as Concertmaster in September 2015. Since performing with the Houston Symphony in a nationally broadcast concert at the age of 11 he has appeared with orchestras throughout the world including The Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony, NDR Radio Philharmonic Orchestra of Hannover, Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, and the Genoa Orchestra. He has also performed on NPR's Performance Today, ABC's Good Morning America, and CNN's American Morning with Paula Zahn. He has performed at Wigmore Hall (in London), Salle Cortot (Paris), Kennedy Center (Washington, DC), and Herbst Theatre (San Francisco), as well as a second recital in Alice Tully Hall (New York). Before joining the Houston Symphony as concertmaster in 2010, he served as first violinist of the Grammy Award-winning Ying Quartet and was a faculty member at the Eastman School of Music. The Men of the Crossing is a Grammy-winning professional chamber choir conducted by Donald Nally and dedicated to new music. It is committed to working with creative teams to make and record new, substantial works for choir that explore and expand ways of writing for, singing in, and listening to choirs. Many of its nearly 130 commissioned premieres address social, environmental, and political issues. The Crossing collaborates with some of the world's most accomplished ensembles and artists, including the New York Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, American Composers Orchestra, and more. With a commitment to recording its commissions, The Crossing has released 25 albums, receiving two Grammy Awards for Best Choral Performance (in 2018 and 2019), and seven Grammy nominations. This event is an in-person livestream of the concert.
