Nathalie Joachim: The Race: 1915 (2019)
Alvin Singleton: Argoru II (1970)

In this encore SOUND/SITES performance, cellist and University of Chicago artist-in-residence Seth Parker Woods showcases the architecture and creative spaces of UChicago's campus through the music of Fredrick Gifford, Nathalie Joachim, Monty Adkins, and Alvin Singleton. Woods, hailed by The Guardian as “a cellist of power and grace” who possesses “a mature artistry and willingness to go to the brink,” reflects on the unabashed celebration of identities, acts of translation, the Great Migration, and the embodied Black and Brown experience in America in this program.

A co-presentation of UChicago Presents and the Department of Music.
