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 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Author Reading | Insurgent Aesthetics: Security and the Queer Life of the Forever War


Author Ronak K. Kapadia theorizes the world-making power of contemporary art responses to US militarism in the Greater Middle East. He traces how new forms of remote killing, torture, confinement, and surveillance have created a distinctive post-9/11 infrastructure of racialized state violence. Linking these new forms of violence to the history of American imperialism and conquest, Kapadia shows how Arab, Muslim, and South Asian diasporic multimedia artists force a reckoning with the US war on terror's violent destruction and its impacts on immigrant and refugee communities.

Concert | Charanga: Smooth, Danceable Cuban Salsa


In the 70’s Charanga music—a smooth, creative, and extremely danceable form of Cuban Salsa featuring flute and violins—exploded on the scene with the creation of Charanga ’76. The public loved the band and its female flute player who was at the center of all the attention. Coined as the first woman flutist to play Charanga music in the United States, Andrea Brachfeld burst into the spotlight and has been creating and playing this music, and many others, ever since. After a brief hiatus from the music scene, Andrea Brachfeld and Son Charanga was created in 2003. Now the group has been reconfigured once again with Bill O’Connell on the piano, Ruben Rodriguez on the bass, Willie Martinez on drums, Chembo Corniel on the congas, violinists Sam Bardfeld and Ali Bello, and vocalists Robert Meir (currently with Charanga '76) and Willy Torres. From decades of Charanga ‘76 hits to the original music of flutist Andrea Brachfeld, this band will reignite your passion and is sure to get you up and dancing.
