Discussion | The Fight for Fair Elections: Expanding the Vote in 2020


Given the especially high stakes of the 2020 election, the need for broad and unobstructed voter participation could not be greater. Yet the past decade has seen a plethora of legal curtailments on voting rights. Since 2010, 25 states have adopted strict photo ID requirements, curbs on early voting, and voter registration restrictions that have all served to gut the 1965 Voting Rights Act, a major win of the Civil Rights movement. Finally, the perennial challenge of voter turnout still exists – over 25% of eligible voters are unregistered, and only 50% of registered voters are expected to vote, making the prospects for a truly democratic election in 2020 very concerning. What lessons can be gleaned from a long history of heroic efforts to ensure equal voting opportunities and rights for all? What are advocates, unions, and other activists doing to combat voter suppression and promote voter registration and turnout in the upcoming election? What should be the top legislative priorities of a more progressive, post-2020 federal government to strengthen our democracy by expanding the vote? With: Gloria Browne-Marshall, Professor of Constitutional Law, John Jay College of Criminal Justice Gerry Hudson, Sectretary-Treasurer, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Moderator: Deepak Bhargava , Distinguished Lecturer, Former Executive Director, Center for Community Change

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.

Lecture | Futile Exercise? The British Army's Preparations for War, 1902-1914


According to the official historian Brigadier-General James Edmonds: 'In every respect the Expeditionary Force of 1914 was incomparably the best trained, best organized, and best equipped British Army which ever went forth to war'. There has been considerable debate over the extent to which Edmonds' claim was justified, and to which the British Army had learnt the lessons of recent events (above all, its chastening experiences in South Africa). Conventional wisdom has it that the British Army in 1914 was utterly unprepared for the development of trench warfare from October 1914 onwards, and that it took many lives and a costly 'learning curve' for the British to come to terms with the new conditions of warfare. Given that war was expected in the decade before August 1914 - and that a great deal of time and money was spent preparing for that war - it seems obvious to ask why the British Army was not better prepared for the war when it came.

Reading | Groundhog Day: The Killing of Bonita Carter


Neta Bomani and Mariame Kaba will discuss their new zine collaboration, which excavates part of the history of Black people’s resistance to state violence (specifically policing). It’s often said that few people rally around the injury or death of Black women to demand justice. Yet the truth is that there are examples that contradict this assertion. The resistance varies in scale and impact and it is sometimes hidden from our view. However, where there is injustice, you will also find some resistance especially led by Black women.

Classical Music | Reflections on Beethoven


Raj Bhimani, piano. Beethoven's Sonata Opus 101 took inspiration from Baroque keyboard works and also provided inspiration for later composers. In this program, the Sonata will be surrounded by Bach's Toccata in E Minor and Cesar Franck's monumental Prelude, Chorale, and Fugue, offering an opportunity to reflect on the influences on and from Beethoven. Pianist Raj Bhimani's concerts are hailed by the New York Times as "virtuosic, heartfelt and eloquent." Time Out NY noted him as being a "gifted and highly expressive pianist." Performing regularly across North America and Europe, he also makes frequent appearances in India. In New York, where he resides, he appears often at Lincoln Center as well as at other venues.

Classical Music | Organ Recital With David Briggs


David Briggs, organ. David Briggs is regarded as one of the world's finest improvisors, and now works as a concert organist. Briggs is a composer of choral and organ music, and has also transcribed many orchestral works into versions for solo organ, as well as many of Pierre Cochereau's recorded improvisations. In 1983 he received the Countess of Munster Award to study Interpretation and Improvisation with Jean Langlais in Paris, with whom he furthered in his interest in the art of improvisation by his transcriptions of the recordings of the late Pierre Cochereau. Transcribing the remarkable improvisations from Cochereau's cassette recordings took eleven years. Briggs' subsequent performances and recordings of them earned him his initial acclaim. He was also the first British organist to win the Tournemire prize for improvisation at the St Albans International Organ Festival.

Classical Music | Bach Vespers: BWV 56 Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen


Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen (lit. "I will gladly carry the cross-staff"), BWV 56, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. The text, by Christoph Birkmann, describes the Christian life as a voluntary journey "carrying the cross" as a follower of Jesus. The words indirectly refer to the prescribed Gospel reading, which says that Jesus traveled by boat. The poet compares life to a sea voyage, and at the end yearns for death as the ultimate destination. Called an "artist worth keeping an eye on" by the Washington Post and noted for "clarity and fire" by the New York Times, Jonathan is a member of the Grammy-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street in New York City and performs regularly with ensembles across the United States including the Clarion Music Society, Musica Sacra, Antioch Chamber Ensemble, Spire Chamber Ensemble and the Santa Fe Desert Chorale. He has shared the stages of the Barclays Center, Alice Tully Hall & Avery Fischer Hall at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the John F. Kennedy Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Walt Disney Concert Hall with such groups as the New York Philharmonic, the Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montreal, Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Quebec, among others.
