Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Week ahead: Performances arriving or no longer in calendar, part 51
In Green Bay, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Music will present a “6:30 Concert Series” program, “Sustainable Voices – A Musical Exploration of Ecological Sustainability,” March 8 in collaboration with Common CAHSS (College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences). According to a press release: The virtual concert will stream live from Fort Howard Hall in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts at 6:30 p.m. on UWGB Music’s youtube channel. The concert is free and open to the public. Donations may be made at https://secure.qgiv.com/for/uowgb/restriction/630ConcertSeries. This concert engages with this year’s Common CAHSS theme, “Beyond Sustainability.” The program is selected in response to these questions: What do we want to sustain given that it’s neither possible nor desirable to sustain the status quo? How can we simultaneously address ecological and social justice issues? These questions will be addressed through inclusive programming of an array of compositional voices and styles. This program will include works by Evan Williams, Michelle McQuade Dewhirst, Daniel Crawford, John Luther Adams, and John Salerno, and features performances by cellist Michael Dewhirst, the UWGB New Music Ensemble, and the UWGB Faculty Jazz Combo. The series is designed to connect the campus with the community through the exploration of music. The series offers new perspectives on diverse styles, often exploring the music from multiple angles. Performances last between 60 and 90 minutes.
