Photo Flash: Boston University's InCite Festival Press Event
Boston University celebrated its up-coming InCite Arts Festival during a press event recently held at the Hudson Hotel (356 W 58th St.) in NYC. BU's first annual InCite Arts Festival, taking place March 9-15 in New York City, is conceived to showcase the dynamic artistic strengths and synergy of the College's schools of Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts.
The InCite Arts Festival will feature an exhibition of works by MFA painting and sculpture students from the BU School of Visual Arts, a chamber orchestra concert featuring a world premiere and three New York premieres of works by composers with close affiliations with the BU School of Music, a performance of Tom Stoppard and André Previn's rarely performed Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, a new play by recent CFA alumna Nitzan Halperin about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Michael Nyman's one-act opera The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, and a showcase of senior actors from the BU School of Theatre.
Led by a Host Committee of prominent Boston University alumni and New-York based arts supporters, the festival will also feature a series of educational and social events hosted by Committee members. Host Committee members include Broadway producer Stewart Lane, director Nicholas Martin, painters Pat Steir and Andrew Raftery, and SungEun Han-Anderson, President of the Anderson Family Foundation. The Host Committee is designed to reach out to the 50,000 members of the BU community in the Tri-State area, to engage alumni, parents, prospective students, and other supporters through this all-encompassing one-week celebration of the Boston University College of Fine Arts.
