Joshua Bell Violinist

With a career spanning more than 30 years, Joshua Bell is one of the most celebrated violinists of his era.  Perhaps the event that helped most to transform Bell’s reputation from “musician’s musician” to “household name” was his incognito performance in a Washington, D.C. subway station in 2007. Equally at home as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestra leader, he maintains a busy schedule of recitals and orchestral performances, and his position as Music Director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.

Sonoma Bach – Guest Recital, The Bright Field - Clerestory

BachGrounder pre-concert talk at 2:25pm.

The acappella ensemble Clerestory takes its name from the high windows through which light pours into a church. We are delighted to present this wonderful Bay Area group in a concert featuring early and modern works inspired, through a process known as ekphrasis, by works of art. Clerestory “distinctive voices blending in a gorgeous sound” (San Francisco Classical Voice) perform compositions—by such composers as John Sheppard, Arvo Pärt and Eric Whitacre—which respond through poetry and music to artworks by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Gerhard Richter and many others. These ancient and modern ‘commentaries’ shine a special light upon art both familiar and brand-new.

Blindspotting

Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When a life-altering event causes Collin to miss his mandatory curfew, the two men struggle to maintain their friendship as the changing social landscape exposes their differences. Lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style and humor, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

Mr. BURNS: A post-electric play

Mr. BURNS: A post-electric play

A nuclear event has destroyed all power plants and collapsed the electric grid. In the post-doomsday wasteland, ragged bands of survivors gather together for protection. Trying to forget how scared they are, they speak of anything but the tragedy, conjuring up memories of old Tv shows, pop culture, cartoons. When someone (mis)remembers a Simpsons episode (you’ll want to re-watch “Cape Feare” S5 E2), a new performance ritual is born. Mr. Burns is a bizarre, funny, bleak, and wonderful exploration of the power of storytelling and the origins of civilization.

By Anne Washburn, directed by Alexis Macnab * SSU Students FREE * Get tickets at the Student Center Ticket Desk or online at the Box Office website.
