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 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Opera | Susanna: Second Part Of The Oratorio By Handel


Handel’s oratorio Susanna explores the biblical story of a blameless young woman who stood strong in the truth when faced with threats of sexual violence and false accusations of promiscuity that carried the punishment of the death penalty. Choir of Trinity Wall Street; Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor. Grammy-nominated interpreters of both early and new music, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has changed the realm of 21st-century vocal music, breaking new ground with an artistry described as “blazing with vigour…a choir from heaven” (The Times). The ensemle has been described as “thrilling” (New Yorker), “musically top-notch” (Wall Street Journal), and “simply superb” (New York Times). The Grammy-nominated Trinity Baroque Orchestra made its debut for Trinity Wall Street’s 2009 performances of Messiah, and has since performed and recorded exclusively with the Trinity Choir in master- works of Bach, Handel, and Schütz, including Handel’s Israel in Egypt, Bach’s Passions and more. The Trinity Baroque Orchestra has recorded with the Choir of Trinity Wall Street for the Grammy-nominated Israel in Egypt and J.S. Bach: Complete Motets. Music director Julian Wachner has been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious,” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, sophisticated chromatic exploration…a rich backdrop, wavering between a glimmer and a tingle...,” (La Scena Musicale) being “a compendium of surprises,” (Washington Post) and as “bold and atmospheric,” while having “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and noted for “the silken complexities of his harmonies” (New York Times). He has made guest appearances with San Francisco Opera, New York City Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, New York Philharmonic, Hong Kong Philharmonic and many more.

Workshop | Getting Started with Astrophotography


Astrophotography is one of the most challenging, time-consuming, equipment-heavy and technical genres of photography, which is why many people are drawn to it. Once you start learning the intricacies of this scientific artform, you quickly learn that there is always more to learn. This lecture will discuss how to get started taking images of the night sky with minimal equipment. Some of the topics we will discuss are: • How to get perfectly round stars that stay sharp throughout your exposures • Using calibration frames to correct for bias, noise, and vignetting • Choosing a suitable object in the sky for you to photograph • Important equipment considerations • How to keep improving your images after you master the basics Speaker Forest Chaput has been immersed in photography since he was born. He grew up in Missoula, Montana and began taking photos with an SLR when he was seven years old. He started working for Rocky Mountain School of Photography at age 13. During his free time, he likes to master new things, build stuff, run, hike, bike, photograph, and be an amateur astronomer. Forest has a BA in Astrophysics, just because. He really enjoys teaching and loves to help students understand concepts thoroughly. Forest has vast experience working with and teaching Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, and has worked many hours in the black and white darkroom. Visit Forest’s website www.forestchaput.com/

Opening Reception | A Different Pose: Abstaction and Animation


These paintings are grounded in both gestural abstraction and the history of 20th-century animation, aspects that combine to imbue his work with a rare sense of kinetic energy. Jan-Ole Schiemann’s process begins with the collection of references—cut-outs from cartoon strips, elements from his own drawing process—which the artist then collages onto transparencies and projects against the canvas. Using primarily ink on the unprimed surface, Schiemann uses sweeping gestures to build the dynamic base of the picture plane before moving on to more precise, illustrative detailing. The works are then built up to fruition carefully, introducing exuberant color and spontaneity as Schiemann reimagines the projected configurations.

Opening Reception | Milagros: Large-Scale Tapestries


The New York-based artist Angel Otero will debut a series of recent, large-scale tapestry-like oil paintings that hang entirely free from a stretcher bar. Over the last decade, Otero has developed physically rigorous and experimental techniques to push the boundaries of painting. Drawing much of his inspiration from the inherent qualities of oil paint, Otero uses collage and materiality as he explores the potential for abstraction to engage issues of identity as well as form, color, and line.

Opening Reception | Off Balance: Feminine Forms and Minimalistic Ones


This body of work represents a balancing act between overtly feminine forms and minimalistic ones. The pieces are not even, stable, or correctly proportioned. They are vulnerable and fragile in appearance with imagery evoking bones, trees, and fertility figures. Line rather than mass is the predominant consideration in this work. Modigliani and Matisse impart inspiration. All the pieces are made with light weight materials allowing the balance point to be small. In this exhibition, Jo-Ann Brody explores papièr maché and the addition of color as well as continuing with cement. Many of the papièr maché torsos are remade from previous work, reshaped, reimagined with thinner faces, arms/hands, more acute angles. By manipulating the figures and distorting them, the women grow stronger and emotionally truer. The sensory experiences explodes into color. Brody’s typical vocabulary includes elongated figures grouped. The cement figures are intended to create a “forest of women.”

Author Reading | Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Social Upheaval


Beautifully written and deeply researched, Wayward Lives recreates the experience of young urban black women who desired an existence qualitatively different than the one that had been scripted for them—domestic service, second-class citizenship, and respectable poverty—and whose intimate revolution was apprehended as crime and pathology. For the first time, young black women are credited with shaping a cultural movement that transformed the urban landscape. Through a melding of history and literary imagination, Wayward Lives recovers their radical aspirations and insurgent desires. With author Saidiya Hartman.

Lecture | Delectable Venice: Desiring and Encountering 'La Serenissima' Through Cuisine and Cinema


The talk, dedicated to learning from Venice, will treat Venice as a cultural text in which food and cinema are central to how we encounter and desire it. Addressed to food and wine lovers, to cinephiles, and, above all, to travelers who wish to question their touristic identity and to stage profound encounters with La Serenissima, the talk will take the form of a “celluloid feast” in which scenes of Italians and Venetians at table will be screened and closely analyzed with attention to the “food operas” through which Italians stage their family life and use food as a language with which to create community and to perform their cultural identity. Particular attention will be paid to films set in Venice that represent the food experiences and interpersonal encounters of Venetians and/or tourists – gourmets in search of “aristopiatti,” foodies fetishized by the variations on radicchio on the menu at Taverna La Fenice, gluttons magnetized by polenta, and romantic travelers who use food as seduction. They will screen clips from canonic tourist films such as Summertime and The Tourist.

Discussion | Rape Culture and Sexual Violence in the Arts


In 2006, activist Tarana Burke originated Me Too as a slogan of empathy and solidarity with victims of sexual harassment and assault. More than a decade later, #MeToo has grown into a movement confronting rape culture and its manifestation across the arts and other work and social environments. This discussion digs into the impact that these developments have had on dance artists and institutions and the possibilities for justice and personal healing.

Opera | Artemisia: Life Of The Female Italian Painter


Laura Schwendinger’s opera Artemisia narrates the life of the famed 17th-century female Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi who explored trauma through her art, depicting herself as Susanna in her painting Susanna and the Elders. Trinity Church Wall Street’s contemporary music orchestra NOVUS NY is under the leadership of Trinity’s Director of Music, Julian Wachner. Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” its members perform new music from all corners of the repertoire, meeting “every challenge with an impressive combination of discipline and imagination” (New York Classical Review). NOVUS NY has helped pioneer a number of major new operas. These include Ellen Reid’s Winter’s Child and Du Yun’s Angel’s Bone, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for music. Composer Laura Schwendinger’s works have been performed at Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln-Center, and numerous other prestigious concert halls.

Opening Reception | Seven: Family, Lineage and Identity.


A new collection of works by artist Shani Jamila. Jamila’s collages, paintings and soundscapes explore family, lineage and identity. The collages utilize her archive of photo essays created over the course of her travels to nearly fifty countries as source material. They interrogate how the idea of home is constructed and the surrealist nature of our political reality. As Jamila encounters people and places through her camera lens, moments of recognition or solidarity emerge which are reorganized and re-purposed through collage, simultaneously revealing and obscuring identity and familiarity.
