Takuya Kuroda (Jazz)
Time: 7:30 PM
Zankel Music Center: Jazz trumpeter Takuya Kuroda is a forward-thinking musician with a bent toward mixing post-bop and adventurous soul-jazz. Born in Kobe, Japan, Kuroda followed his older trombonist brother into the local music scene, playing in big bands. Now ensconced in the vibrant NYC jazz scene, Kuroda performs with such artists as José James, Junior Mance, Greg Tardy, Andy Ezrin, Jiro Yoshida, Akoya Afrobeat, and others. With an already prolific discography, Takuya Kuroda has fortified a solid reputation in the global jazz scene. 2011 saw the release of Kuroda’s independently-produced debut album, Edge, followed by Bitter and High the following year and Six Aces on P-Vine in 2013. In 2014, Kuroda was signed to the legendary Blue Note Records for his album Rising Son, and appeared on their 2019 cover versions project, Blue Note Voyage. He released his 5th album Zigzagger on Concord in 2016, which also featured Antibalas on a reimagining of the Donald Byrd classic Think Twice. Late Summer 2020, Takuya Kuroda returned with his sixth album Fly Moon Die Soon. In his words, “this album is about the irony between the greatness of nature and the beautiful obsceneness of humanity. Melodies and grooves fly back and forth from being spiritual to being vulgar.” Tickets are available at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/zankel/7074/event/1310529. $15 General Public/ $8 Students (Non-Skidmore) & Seniors/ $5 Skidmore Community w/ ID.

The California-born, Berlin-based artist, whose first language is American Sign Language (ASL), engages with how we experience and conceptualize sound, foregrounding its multidimensional visual, physical, and political aspects. In her talk, Kim will discuss her work within the context of systems of visual communication including ASL, musical notation, infographics, televisual captioning, and more, to address the intricacies of social exchange and the power of representation. The program will include ASL interpretation by Denise Kahler-Braaten and Beth Staehle. The event is free and open to the public. A public reception follows the talk.About the artistChristine Sun Kim is an American artist based in Berlin. Working predominantly in drawing, performance, and video. Kim’s practice considers how sound operates in society, deconstructing the politics of sound, and exploring oral languages as social currency. Musical notation, written language, American Sign Language (ASL), and the use of the body are all recurring elements in her work. She further uses sound to explore her own relationship to verbal languages and her environment. Kim has exhibited and performed internationally, including at the Queens Museum, New York (2022); the Drawing Center, New York (2022); the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2021); Manchester International Festival, Manchester (2021); MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge (2020); Whitney Biennial, New York (2019); Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo (2019); Art Institute of Chicago (2018); San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2017); De Appel Arts Center, Amsterdam (2017); Berlin Biennale (2016); Shanghai Biennale (2016); MoMA PS1, New York (2015) and the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2013), among numerous others.

MDOCS Alumni Screening: "Call Me Anytime, I'm Not Leaving the House" and "Not Going Quietly"
Time: 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM
Palamountain Hall Gannett Auditorium: Join MDOCS for a screening of two powerful new documentaries, both distributed by PBS’s prestigious POV - Not Going Quietly (2021) follows Ady Barkan (Politico's "Most Powerful Activist in America") as his life is upended when he is diagnosed with ALS. After a confrontation with powerful Senator Jeff Flake on an airplane goes viral, catapulting him to national fame, Ady and a motley crew of activists ignite a once-in-a-generation political movement, barnstorming across the country to empower people to confront their elected officials with emotional, personal stories to demand health-care justice. Call Me Anytime, I’m Not Leaving the House (2022) presents an even more intimate slice of life in the shadow of big political news, as two Ukrainian sisters – one recently emigrated to Brooklyn, the other in war-besieged Odessa – long to be reunited and reminisce about their homeland. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the Skidmore alums who created and worked on them: Sanjna Selva ’21 (Call Me Anytime); Adam Simon ’19 (Not Going Quietly); Aster Gross ’16 (Not Going Quietly); and Amanda Roddy ’14 (Not Going Quietly) Sponsored by MDOCS, Media & Film Studies, Health and Wellness Office, and the Career Development Center

Tsou Music Scholar Lecture Series: Kofi Agawu
Time: 5:30 PM
Zankel Music Center: Kofi Agawu (CUNY Graduate Center) was born in Ghana, where he received his initial education before studying composition and analysis in the UK and musicology in the US. His work focuses on analytical issues in selected repertoires of Western Europe and West Africa, which are not as widely known as Agawu believes they ought to be. In his talk, Composing in the Postcolony: A Perspective on African Art Music, Agawu will “lay bare some of art music’s enabling conditions, starting with its birth out of the twin forces of missionization and colonization.” “For many people,” Agawu writes, “African music typically indexes ‘traditional’ music of ostensibly ancient origins or varieties of modern ‘popular’ music. And yet, since the middle of the nineteenth century, Black Africans have routinely composed and performed for non-participating audiences such items as art songs, choral anthems, piano pieces, folk operas, and music for large and small ensembles. How might we explain the invisibility of this tradition in the competing discourses of music studies today?” Kofi Agawu, PhD is the author of five monographs and numerous articles and reviews. His awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Dent Medal, the Frank Llewellyn Harrison Medal, the Howard T. Behrman Award from Princeton University, and honorary degrees from Stellenbosch University (2017) and Bard College (2019). He has served on the editorial boards of leading journals in musicology, music theory, African studies and ethnomusicology. A Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy, he is a Fellow of the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences, Honorary Member of the Royal Musical Association, and Adjunct Professor in the Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana, Legon. He was Music Theorist in Residence for the Dutch-Flemish Music Theory Society in 2008-09 and George Eastman Visiting Professor at Oxford University in 2012-13. He is currently a Distinguished Professor of Music at the CUNY Graduate Center. This is a free event. Seating is general admission and doors open 30 minutes prior to the start of the performance.

2023 Skidmore String Festival: The American String Quartet
Time: 7:30 PM
Zankel Music Center: Recognized as one of the world's finest quartets, the American String Quartet has spent decades honing the luxurious sound for which it is famous. This evening-length performance will include performances of Franz Schubert’s slow and gracious String Quartet in A minor (“Rosamunde”); Blueprint, composed by Caroline Shaw as a “harmonic reduction” of Beethoven’s String Quartet, Op. 18, No. 6; Vivian Fung’s Pizzicato, a short work during which the players never use their bows; ending with Ludwig van Beethoven’s last quartet, through which he asks, “Muss es sein?” The American String Quartet celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2019, and, in its years of touring, has performed in all fifty states and has appeared in the most important concert halls worldwide. The group’s presentations of Beethoven, Schubert, Schoenberg, Bartók, and Mozart have won widespread critical acclaim, and their MusicMasters Complete Mozart String Quartets, performed on a matched quartet set of instruments by Stradivarius, are widely considered to have set the standard for this repertoire. Formed when its original members were students at The Juilliard School, the American String Quartet’s career began with the group winning both the Coleman Competition and the Naumburg Award in the same year. Resident quartet at the Aspen Music Festival since 1974 and at the Manhattan School of Music in New York since 1984, the American has also served as resident quartet at the Taos School of Music, the Peabody Conservatory, and the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
