Our Shifting the Conversation series for the Fall 2016 semester comes to an exciting end with the help of four talented musicians from within our community. Lili del Sol Atehortua (CPPD), Nathalie Hernandez (Study Abroad), Devin Malloy (CPPD) and Massimiliano Mechelli (SFTV) will share with us their original compositions and the individual creative processes behind them.
Through the generous sharing of their original compositions, showing a myriad of musical genres, we hope to engage participants in acknowledging and experiencing the power of Music, and all forms of Art, to instigate positive change in our diverse communities. Music has the intrinsic power to move people -audiences- to their core. Using such power to help us, not only reflect on our individual lives as human beings and artists, but also as active agents in our diverse communities, capable of inspiring others, healing them, calling them to action and helping them reflect, unite and rebel against social injustices, is therefore definitely worth exploring as we look to find our place in this ever-changing world landscape.
In the spirit of President Roger Brown´s message as a reflection on the 2016 US Presidential Election: "For those who feel their voices have been silenced, let’s lift our voices in art and music and words and deeds and stay strong."
Join us on Friday December 9 at 1.30PM (new time!!) in B54 for this last chance for collective and inspirational reflection during this semester, and make sure you RSVP via firstname.lastname@example.org so we can secure some lunch!
