Posted on February 19, 2016, BY Matthew Beltz
The Bucknell University Orchestra's "Semester of Social Justice," a three-concert series during the spring 2016 semester, will continue on Friday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. at Rooke Recital Hall. The performance is free and open to the public.
This concert is titled "The Struggle to be Heard - Chamber Music of Diverse Composers" and will feature chamber music by underrepresented composers. Selections will include works by openly gay African-American composer William Grant Still, early 20th-century composer Charles Tomlinson Griffes, transgendered composer Angela Morley, and woman composers Amy Beach, Barbara Hagen and Sylvia Glickman. Students from the Bucknell Orchestra and the Metta Quartet will perform.
The Semester of Social Justice Series is a direct, musical response to Bucknell President John Bravman's call for Bucknellians to recommit to action that fosters an environment that reduces intolerance and discrimination and builds a community in which all are valued and respected. The final concert in this series is scheduled for April 16.
