All events are free unless otherwise noted. ONLINE EVENTS ARE MARKED AS SUCH.

Classical Music | Leonard Bernstein and The Vienna Philharmonic: Mahler's Symphony No. 4 (online, streaming until Sep 17)


Gustav Mahler (1860 - 1911) was one of the leading conductors of his generation. As a composer he acted as a bridge between the 19th-century Austro-German tradition and the modernism of the early 20th century. His music gained wide popularity only after periods of relative neglect, which included a ban on its performance in much of Europe during the Nazi era. After 1945 his compositions were rediscovered by a new generation of listeners; Mahler then became one of the most frequently performed and recorded of all composers, a position he has sustained into the 21st century. Renowned conductor Leonard Bernstein established himself as the ultimate champion of Mahler's works, becoming the first conductor to record all of the composer's symphonies. In this performance from 1973 filmed in Vienna's Musikverein, Bernstein leads the Vienna Philharmonic in Mahler's Fourth Symphony.

Jennifer Le Zotte's book looks at how clothing, style, and commerce came together to change American culture and examines how secondhand goods sold at thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales came to be both profitable and culturally influential.

Screening | Short Films by Emmy Winner


Emmy winner Michael Jacobsohn presents short documentaries, including a 16 mm film that he made as a teenager.  "My short documentaries feature the lives of gifted artists who have found their way to New York City.

I strive to give my protagonists a stage to perform and a visual gallery to display their unique talents. My subjects reciprocate with their wonderful stories of struggle and hope."  Followed by a Q&A and refreshments. Must be fully vaccinated to attend.
