Classical Music | Bach Plus One Concert


The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor. This season, Bach at One evolves into Bach + One: featuring one Bach cantata each week paired with a complementary work from composers early to modern. Trinity’s presentation of Bach’s entire monumental output of vocal sacred music has been praised by The New York Times for its “dramatic vigor.” Program Johann Sebastian Bach Es ist das Heil uns kommen her, BWV 9 Johann Friedrich Fasch Concerto for Flute and Oboe, FaWV L:h1 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

Author Reading | Full Surrogacy Now: Feminism Against Family


The surrogacy industry is worth over one billion dollars a year, and many of its surrogates work in terrible conditions, while many gestate babies for no pay at all. Should it be illegal to pay someone to gestate a baby for you? Full Surrogacy Now brings a fresh and unique perspective to the debate. Rather than making surrogacy illegal or allowing it to continue as is, Sophie Lewis argues we should be looking to radically transform it. Surrogates should be put front and center, and their rights towards the babies they gestate should be expanded to acknowledge that surrogates are more than mere vessels. In doing so, we break down our assumptions that children necessarily belong to those whose genetics they share. Author Sophie Lewis teaches at the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research in Philadelphia.

Discussion | Bauhaus in Balance: Exercises in Body and Mind Calibration


In discussing what the fascinating material experiments and body exercises conducted at the early Bauhaus in Weimar tell us about the utopian desire for equilibrium and balance, this conversation will unravel how these experiments correspond to contemporary studies on body exercises and body movement which alter the perception of the outside world, i.e. studies on how body exercises influence brain processes and how this can benefit physical and psychological health of elderly people.

Opening Reception | Gallery Talk And Reception


A Mini Retrospective of the Artist’s Books of Maddy Rosenberg. Though born and based in New York City, Maddy Rosenberg gathers imagery as well from her travels. Rosenberg became a book artist after years as a printmaker, seeing it as a natural extension of the thought process involved in formulating a related series of prints. With a book, she could explore the world that hovers between the flat surface and three-dimensional objects. Rosenberg’s focus is on the book as object, moving it into the sculptural by building up space mostly through planes. Her works can be seen in many public collections, including MoMA, Brooklyn Museum, Yale University and Tate Gallery.

Concert | IBLA Foundation Winners Concert: 500th Anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's Legacy


The IBLA Grand Prize International Music Competition has become one of the world’s cultural treasures. Held each year in early Summer in the magnificent southeastern corner of Sicily, in the quietly beautiful and charming Baroque city of Ragusa-Ibla, this competition has proven to be a consistent and world-class showcase for musical talent of the highest order. The competition’s founder, Dr. Salvatore Moltisanti, himself a pianist, has created an atmosphere that encourages openness to any and all forms of music, allowing presentations of all musical styles as well as instruments (this has included several types of jazz ensembles, domra virtuosos, accordionists, folk singers and many others from outside the classical mainstream, as well as instrumental and vocal performers of standard and contemporary repertoire), and creating a place where the ideas of wonderfully talented people can be nurtured in a spirit of international respect.

Lecture | Neuroethics: Technology, the Brain and Mental Health


From your DNA analysis to your digital footprint, modern science gives us much to learn about and play with. Do we even understand, much less dedicate enough time, to the ethical considerations associated with these marvelous developments? Reflection has never been more important than at this time, when technology has the potential for huge impact on brain function and mental health across one’s lifespan. The discipline of “neuroethics” works to provide us with an academic foundation for such reflection. Researchers and their funders want and need to learn more from us how to have meaningful discussion enabling them to better handle the ethical considerations. What shall we tell them? Speaker Cynthia Joyce is Executive Director of the MQ Foundation, a new charity supporting research for better understanding, treatment, and prevention of mental illness.

Poetry Reading | The Low Passions: Incantatory Poems


Explosive and incantatory, The Low Passions traces the fringes of the American experiment through the eyes of a young drifter. Pathologically frugal, reckless, and vulnerable, the narrator of these viscerally compelling poems hops freight trains, hitchhikes, dumpster dives, and sleeps in the homes of total strangers, scavenging forgotten and hardscrabble places for tangible forms of faith. A range of strong-willed characters takes shape, amplified by a chorus of monologues from the strangers who shelter him and the family he's left behind--each made manifest by the poet's devoted ear and sensitive eye. Anders Carlson-Wee’s poems have appeared in The Virginia Quarterly Review, The Kenyon Review, Ploughshares, BuzzFeed, and many other publications. The recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and winner of the 2017 Poetry International Prize, he lives in Minneapolis.

Discussion | Nationalism and Mortality


Observable from the rise of the Tea Party and the 2016 election, some middle- and lower-income white Americans have thrown their support behind conservative politicians who pledge to make life great again for people "like them". However, the health implications of such “backlash governance” can be deadly. Prominent expert on gun violence and mental illness Jonathan Metzl’s book Dying of Whiteness demonstrates how right-wing backlash policies have mortal consequences—even for the voters they promise to help. Metzl and Christina Greer, Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University, will discuss how intolerance and racism contribute towards fueling policies that can have potentially deadly consequences to all.
