Event description

Description

Composer Anthony Green will share thoughts from the front lines of his social justice-minded artistic work, and on the role art can and should play in expressing the gravity, importance, complexity, or subtlety of oppressive situations - in ways that can communicate to people and inspire or effect change.

Green's most important work in social justice is with Castle of our Skins (COOS), where he is associate artistic director, composer-in-residence, and pianist. COOS is a concert and education organization dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music. Through COOS, Mr. Green has performed, composed, and lectured about the life and music of many Black composers, including Ed Bland, Dorothy Rudd Moore, Scott Joplin, and Florence Price.

This talk comes on the heels of Castle of our Skins’ weeklong residency “Black in Europe and Beyond!” at the Brandeis Music Department (http://www.musicunitesus.info/residency.html) and Mr. Green’s own residency at the Bemis Center for the Arts’s “Art, Empathy, and Ethos” program (http://www.bemiscenter.org/residency/current_residents.html).

Frank S. Li, composer and Heller researcher, will introduce Mr. Green.

Light refreshments will be provided.
