It is the music that unites our spirits at the holiday season. With selections from Handel’s glorious “Judas Maccabeus,” the Master Chorale honors Hanukkah; with Mac Wilberg’s majestic “Tres Cantus Laudendi” with brass and percussion, the chorale proclaims the season; with a flurry of carols, both secular and sacred, the chorale celebrates Christmas.

The Master Chorale will perform the favorite choruses and solos from this splendid work. John Rutter’s “Requiem” has become one of the most popular settings of this text that honors the passing of life. Performed together with orchestra, they offer a musical experience that celebrates the full circle of life.

The featured work is “Mass in Blue” by English composer Will Todd – not just a collaboration, but a coloration of the traditional liturgical words with the hues of contemporary jazz.

SCHOLARLY PRESENTATIONS Pompeii

Michael McCaffrey and Kevin Anthony Wednesday, Nov. 14, 6pm Over the last three years, professors McCaffrey and Anthony have conducted tours of the city of Pompeii on each of their College of the Canyons study-abroad programs to Italy. Their combined research and study have created a unique expertise on the lives of the citizenry, the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, and the art, architecture, history and relevant tourism aspects of this UNESCO-designated historical site. The presentation will include: The dynamics of the eruption; political history of the city and relationship with Rome; daily lives of the citizens and their living arrangements; diet of the citizenry; related tourism points of interest; art with an emphasis on the Villa of the Mysteries, which is rarely visited by tourists; architecture of the arena, theaters and bathhouses; and the water and sewage systems of Pompeii in contrast to Herculaneum.

The B*tch Project

Ruth Rasool and Deems Morrione Thursday, March 28, 2019, 6pm The discussion is predicated on the idea that there is a kind of political paralysis in the U.S. right now that reflects a breakdown in what philosopher Michel Foucault terms “governmentality.” Because the center no longer holds, fetishistic arenas (like fashion) are where political dramas play out. The presenters believe that by examining the runway shows of the past two years, one can detect a kind of cultural disarray that is evident in the shift from more orderly silhouettes to those that project instability; varieties in styling that are overtly political; and a kind of mania in the fashion world as a mise en abyme for the culture at large as seen in runway shows. This presentation is an extension of a Facebook initiative called “The B*tch Project,” which focuses on interesting trends in the fashion industry.
