UPCOMING FEATURED EVENTS
Pickman Hall will be transformed into a cabaret from the Berlin underground of the 1920’s. Experience the music and words of members of the Novembergruppe, including Kurt Weill, Hans Eisler, and Bertolt Brecht, whose radicalism and political satire defined the artistic culture of Germany during the Weimar Republic. While exiled in the U.S. during WWII, these same artists moved the center of Western art music to the new world and made their mark in Hollywood.
“Come gather 'round people where ever you roam…” Hear folk ballads describing the American experience from the Dust Bowl years of Woody Guthrie to Bob Dylan’s Vietnam Era. In an informal coffeehouse setting, students and faculty will present this genre of song that awakened our national social conscience.
A concert of hidden messages, both the hopeful and sardonic. The Longy Conservatory Orchestra performs an orchestral repertoire featuring the United States anthem arranged by Stavinsky, the Marseillaise orchestrated by Bizet, Broadway selections from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and 1776, stirring music from John Adams’ Nixon in China, and the film score from Prokofiev’s first commission within the Soviet Union, Lieutenant Kijé.
