12 Free events, free things to do in New York (NYC)

All events, things to do on Friday, March 8, 2019 are free unless otherwise noted.

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.

Lecture | Pasolini After Dante: La Divina Mimesis and the Politics of Representation


In the early 1960s, Pier Paolo Pasolini started his rewriting of Dante’s Divine Comedy, La Divina Mimesis. The aim of the project was to make it a new contemporary Comedia, including circles, sins, and characters inspired by Dante. Yet the project was never completed as originally planned. In Fall 1975, Pasolini decided to publish the notes he had written over a decade as a ‘document’. The final text was published by Einaudi in November, a few days after Pasolini’s death. What has been considered for decades as a minor and ultimately failed work in Pasolini’s career is probably the most significant retrospective testimony the author left us on his concept of realism and his authorial subject. La Divina Mimesis is in fact the outward sign of a sustained dialogue with Dante on representation, whose roots reach down into the early 1950s. In this talk, Emanuela Patti of the University of London will explore some examples of Pasolini’s appropriation of Dante’s realism and how they relate to postwar Italian debates.

Author Reading | Unhappy Silences: Activist Feelings, Feminist Thinking, Resisting Injustice


Reading from her new book, Berenice Malka Fisher shares her own and other women activists’ stories about both speaking out and remaining silent in numerous peace and justice movements from the 1950s to the present. Through analyzing these accounts with the help of many feminist authors, she shows how closer attention to the feelings contained in these silent moments can strengthen collective resistance.
