Unsung Stories: Women at Columbia's Computer Music Center - Unsung Stories: Women at Columbia's Computer Music Center is a first step focusing on the legacy of women who have studied and worked at the renowned Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center (renamed the Computer Music Center in 1996). The two-day symposium (9-10 April 2021) highlights the work of women, including the work of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ composers and musicians at the Center, examining how institutional networks and intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, national origin, and other identifications impacted the daily work, modes of interaction, and visibility of women composers at the CPEMC/CMC historically and in the field more broadly. Unsung Stories features panels and roundtables with over thirty composers/sound artists and scholars who will discuss the lineage, musical excellence, experience, and visibility of the diverse women who have worked at the Center from the 1950s to its recent history. The symposium is one part of a three-part series, including a podcast and a concert in Fall 2021. click here

Philadelphia Chamber Music Society: Joseph Lin, violin - Former first violinist of the Juilliard Quartet, Joseph Lin says of his livestreamed, all-Bach program: "Spending time with the music of Bach is both a privilege and a humbling experience. It challenges us to listen deeply, open our spirits, and imagine infinite possibility through sound. Little did Bach know that his Sonatas and Partitas would become the most essential works for any violinist. Yet these personal statements have survived to resonate a profound chord in humanity for generations and across cultures. Three centuries later, we have an opportunity to reflect on their remarkable qualities that not only endure but continue to evolve." click here
