Oct 26 @ 8:00 pm
Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra - the Art of Jazz @ First Baptist Church in Newton | Newton | Massachusetts | United States

Principal Conductor Kevin Rhodes kicks off the season with a colorful program that explores how composers of art music first reckoned with a new force in 1920s American popular music: jazz. A visit to a Harlem jazz club inspired Darius Milhaud’s ballet La Création du monde, based on African myth. Before Aaron Copland developed his characteristic style, he used elements of jazz in compositions like Music for the Theatreto achieve a more American sound. Kurt Weill’s sultry cabaret music from The Threepenny Opera(including the hit “Mack the Knife”) satirizes the social excesses of Weimar Germany. George Gershwin’s famous Rhapsody in Blue, a one-movement piano concerto, will be performed in its original scoring for jazz band with Maestro Rhodes at the keyboard.

Panel Discussion: “When Everyone Has a Camera: Street Photography, the Right to Free Expression, and the Right to Privacy in the Internet Age” @ McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College
Nov 13 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Panel Discussion: "When Everyone Has a Camera: Street Photography, the Right to Free Expression, and the Right to Privacy in the Internet Age" @ McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College | Boston | Massachusetts | United States

In conjunction with “Alen MacWeeney and a Century of New York Street Photography”, Professor of Photography Karl Baden with the ILA presents a panel discussion: “When Everyone Has a Camera: Street Photography, the Right to Free Expression, and the Right to Privacy in the Internet Age”.

Because street photography occurs in a public space it has been protected as a right to free expression under the US Constitution’s First Amendment. The digital revolution of the past three decades, social media, the ubiquitous smartphone, and increasingly high resolution, affordable surveillance cameras, however, have blurred the line between public and private spaces. Suspicion and resistance by the general public has grown to being photographed by a random individual, especially without permission. At the same time, particularly in urban environments, the public is constantly on camera, surveilled by governmental and corporate entities, from body cams on a police officer’s lapels to satellite cameras powerful enough to read license plates. It is these paradoxical issues that the panel and exhibition seek to highlight and debate.
