THURSDAY HARVARD ARTS MEDAL CEREMONY Colson Whitehead ’91, Writer Join John Lithgow ’67, ArD ’05,   in conversation with novelist   Colson Whitehead, followed by   the 2018 Harvard Arts Medal Ceremony presentation by   President Drew Gilpin Faust. With a special reading by National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman ’20. Photo: Madeline Whitehead

Thursday, April 26, 4 PM Sanders Theatre

Free and open to the public; tickets required (limit two per person), available through the Harvard Box Office beginning April 17 for Harvard affiliates and April 19 for the public.

“The hard thing is the thing you should be doing,” author Colson Whitehead said in an interview in 2016. Since then, his novel The Underground Railroad (2016) has won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award (and many other accolades). Whitehead surely took on a hard task in writing about Cora, a slave whose journey is meticulously and imaginatively represented at the heart of Whitehead’s narrative. But Whitehead is no newcomer to literary challenges. In his novels, he explores a range of genres, always probing stylistically but never settling on one theme or approach – outside of good storytelling. “Colson Whitehead is an extraordinarily imaginative writer whose award-winning works transcend boundaries and push the limits of storytelling into new and invigorating territory,” said President Faust. “We are excited to welcome him back to the University to bestow Harvard’s highest honor for artistic achievement.” Whitehead grew up in Manhattan and, after college, cut his writing teeth as a music reviewer and TV critic for The Village Voice. Influenced by Stephen King and Marvel Comics, he began to craft his own long-form fiction. His first novel The Illusionist (2000) catapulted Whitehead forward as one of the important voices of our times, or, as writer Edwidge Danticat put it, the “emerging Ralph Ellison of his generation.” Seven books later, Whitehead has contributed to American literature and ideas in ways that reverberate in our collective


imagination. “We’re constantly trying to make a better version of our country and of ourselves,” he has said. His body of work explores the American experience and, through the power of language, forces us to contend with our history, our choices and our future. Additionally, Whitehead is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Whiting Writers Award, the Dos Passos Prize and a fellowship at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library. He has taught at the University of Houston, Columbia University, Brooklyn College, Hunter College, New York University, Princeton University, Wesleyan University and the University of Wyoming. “Part of what we honor with any salutation of Colson Whitehead’s work after the release of The Underground Railroad is the power of culture to enlarge our notion of who counts, whose lives should be remembered and imagined in civic society. His work enacts a kind of representational justice,” said Sarah Lewis, Assistant Professor in Harvard's Department of History of Art and Architecture and the Department of African and African American Studies. The Harvard Arts Medal is given each year to a distinguished Harvard or Radcliffe graduate or faculty member who has achieved excellence in the arts and has made a contribution through the arts to education or the public good.

FRIDAY A CELEBRATION OF MASTERY AND MUSIC  Legendary pianist André Watts, with the Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra conducted by Maestro Federico Cortese Friday, April 27, 5:30-6:30 PM Sanders Theatre Pianist André Watts was 16 when Leonard Bernstein ‘39 tapped him to debut with the New York Philharmonic. Watts went on to have a distinguished career as an educator, performer, recording artist and soloist. In more than 50 years of performance and pedagogy, Watts has appeared with the finest international orchestras and conductors. He has been named a Distinguished Professor, the highest academic rank given to faculty, at University of Indiana where he has taught in the Jacobs School of Music since 2004. Watts' many honors include a Grammy Award, the Avery Fisher Prize and induction into the Hollywood Bowl of Fame. In 2011, he was the recipient of a National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama. Watts will perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major (Emperor Concerto) with the Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra directed by Federico Cortese, Senior Lecturer on Music and Director of HRO. During a special presentation about Watts' life and work, the Office for the Arts will present Watts with the Luise Vosgerchian Teaching Award, Harvard’s highest music award for an outstanding educator. Free and open to the public. Tickets available at the door on April 27 starting at 3:30 PM.

SATURDAY ON THE PLAZA AND BEYOND Free and open to the public

Parker Quartet and Silkroad Ensemble with the Brattle Street Chamber Players of Harvard College 11 AM-12:30 PM The Silkroad Ensemble, Parker Quartet (Blodgett Artists-inResidence, Department of Music) and the Brattle Street Chamber Players of Harvard College join up in a bold and intimate concert featuring more than a dozen musicians in a one-of-a-kind experience that reminds us of the power of creative collaboration across genres and generations. Founded by cellist Yo-Yo Ma ’76 in 1998, the Silkroad Ensemble creates music that engages difference, sparking radical cultural collaboration and passion-driven learning to build a more hopeful world. Silkroad has been affiliated with Harvard University since 2005, with offices on Harvard’s Allston campus since 2010. Through mentorships and workshops, Silkroad acts as a working laboratory at the intersection of the arts and academics, collaborating across disciplines with Harvard faculty and students. Inspiring performances, luminous sound and exceptional musicianship are the hallmarks of the Grammy Award-winning Parker Quartet. Renowned for its layered interpretations and polished, expansive colors, the group has distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. The Brattle Street Chamber Players of Harvard College is one of Harvard's most exciting musical ensembles. A conductorless string chamber orchestra, Brattle brings a dynamic approach to a broad-ranging repertoire of standard, seldom performed and newly composed music for strings.

Harvard Master of the Arts and Emmy Award-winning actor John Lithgow ’67, ArD ’05 welcomes you in dramatic style to ARTS FIRST 2018, with the Harvard University Band! | 12:30 PM Performance Fair in Harvard Yard and Science Center Plaza and across campus | 1-5 PM Harvard’s annual festival offers more than 100 free performances and presentations at venues in and around Harvard Yard including: dance, music, theater, poetry readings and more.

SPECIAL THANKS Thank You President Drew Gilpin Faust “The arts open our eyes to new ways of thinking and doing, and challenge us to see the world differently,” President Drew Gilpin Faust said early in her tenure. Her impact on the arts at Harvard is both visionary and immeasurable. Her arts legacy here will be one of practice, pedagogy, intellectual rigor and joy. The ARTS FIRST producers, student and faculty artists dedicate the 2018 festival to you, President Faust, with heartfelt gratitude. May the arts inspire your future endeavors as they have the faculty, staff and students you have led.
