Workshop | The Artistic B&W Opportunities in Travel Photography


What is the appeal of black and white? With so much development and technology applied to color, why do some photographers decide to work with shades of gray? There has to be some strong reason for this decision. Could it be a desire to explore new styles, to express ourselves more artistically or the desire to inspire and challenge our audiences with a more dramatic way of looking at the world In this talk, Ossian Lindholm will tell you about situations that offer opportunities to view in shades of gray, in which situations the B&W reigns with respect to color, and why B&W photography adds a new motivation to capture new images during our outings.

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.

Classical Music | FESTAC '77: A Fateful Trip Remembered


Craig Harris’ performance of FESTAC ’77 is part of Chimurenga’s three-day installation of its Pan African Space Station in New York, in collaboration with the Vera List Center at The New School. This project explores the legacy of African-America’s participation in FESTAC ’77. Artist Statement: "In January of 1977, I attended FESTAC, the Second World Black and African Festival of Arts and Culture in Lagos, Nigeria, as a member of the Sun Ra Arkestra. This trip informed me as to my place in the world as a musician and a person. It was deeply impactful to see and interact with people from the entire African Diaspora. The work is for a small chamber ensemble of 5 strings, 3 reeds, 2 brass, 4 percussions and voice, and is divided into 8 sections. It reflects my experience from and meditations on my trip and the significance of being a young African American on the continent for the first time, joining so many others from the diaspora, celebrating ourselves and our culture."
