Music: Sun Nov 6


Consider arriving by 10am on Sunday November 6 for a special Music for All Ages presentation by Adam Kent and CUUC member Mary Lane Cobb. Adam and Mary will discuss the theme of Evil as it pertains to racism and discrimination, illustrated by the haunting poetry of Langston Hughes set to music by Margaret Bonds. Mary will perform several additional settings of Hughes’s poetry in the Music at CUUC opening event at 1pm that afternoon. In the Opening Music and Interlude, Manuel de Falla’s sultry ballet music for El amor brujo evokes witchcraft and obsessive, destructive love, and the Offertory features the wacky Poltergeist by American ragtime composer William Bolcom. Read on for programming details.
