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.

Workshop | Traditional English Afternoon Tea


English-style tea, black tea, Pally's rich tea biscuit will be served. “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”- Henry James Afternoon tea, that most quintessential of English customs is, perhaps surprisingly, a relatively new tradition. While the custom of drinking tea dates back to the third millennium BC in China and was popularised in England during the 1660s by King Charles II and his wife the Portuguese Infanta Catherine de Braganza, it was not until the mid 19th century that the concept of ‘afternoon tea’ first appeared. Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her. This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o’clock.

Slide Lecture | Terra Flamma: Photographing California's Wildfires


Terra Flamma: Photographing California’s Wildfires shares an ongoing award-winning body of work documenting California’s worsening wildfires in the state, including long exposure images of fires at night, reportage photos of firefighters on the ground, and landscape documentary photos related to wildfires and climate change. The work spans 6 years from across the state and over 100 wildfires from the US/Mexico border to the towering pines of the Shasta Trinity National Forest in Northern California. Most recently Stuart covered the Woolsey Fire in Malibu and the Camp Fire in Northern California, which is the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in modern California history. A selection of images will be shared with the audience in slide format, with the presentation focusing on some of the stories behind the images. The audience will come away knowing more about wildfire in California and the various stakeholders related to them, in addition to the photographer’s firsthand experiences on the fireline capturing the images. There will be a technical discussion on the camera settings and equipment used to capture some of the images, and the unique technical and creative considerations when photographing wildfires. Attendees can apply some of these techniques to their own general night-sky, landscape, or travel photography. As a contract photographer for the US Forest Service and contributor to national news publications, Stuart Palley is formally trained as a wildland firefighter and owns the same safety gear any firefighter on the front lines would. This is a great opportunity for those on the east coast and in New York to see a firsthand view of environmental issues that are faced in the west, through the lens of documentary photography.

Author Reading | Book Launch: Black Is Beautiful


Kwame Brathwaite: Black Is Beautiful (Aperture), featuring the photography that helped popularized the slogan “Black Is Beautiful.” Brathwaite and his older brother, Elombe Brath, in the late 50's and early 60’s, did their part to spread this idea through Brathwaite’s writings and photographs, as well as the activities of the two organizations they helped co-found: AJASS (1956) and the Grandassa Models (1962). Grandassa Models was founded to challenge white beauty standards. This monograph, the first ever dedicated to Brathwaite’s remarkable career, tells the story of a key, but under-recognized, figure of the second Harlem Renaissance. The launch event will feature a conversation with Kwame S. Brathwaite, Archive Director; Tanisha C. Ford, author and historian; former Grandassa Model Eunice Townsend; moderated by Kimberly R. Drew, art curator, writer and social activist. All attendees are welcome to recreate looks and hair styles that pay homage to the "Naturally" fashion shows and cultural celebrations that are also reverberating in the current vernacular of Black style and culture.
