Event Image Brass Trio Faculty Recital
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

In Willamette University’s Hudson Hall, music faculty will present a Brass Trio recital at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 3rd  Highlights from the program will feature the haunting and atmospheric melodies of Alan Hovhaness, the modern eclecticism of Anthony Plog, and the energetically brilliant music from the late Renaissance era.

Sarah Viens, Michael Hettwer, and Carson Keeble are excited to present their first collaboration showcasing music for the unique combination of trumpet, french horn and trombone.  A leaner, nimbler sibling to the ubiquitous Brass Quintet (which has an extra trumpet and a tuba), the Brass Trio provides great diversity in timbre, range, and volume, yet always allowing for a clear and open sonority.  The repertoire written for Brass Trio is less abundant than the Brass Quintet, though a group of clever composers such as Hovhaness, Plog and Václav Nelhýbel have uncovered innovations of sonority for this petite and well balanced three-voice ensemble. The trio will become quartet for a suite of short pieces from the late Renaissance era, as Sarah, Michael, and Carson are joined by Willamette University senior and Hatfield Scholar, Ziv Feinberg on trumpet. Ziv has been an exceptional addition to the Willamette music scene during his tenure here and they are excited for him join them in a professional capacity!

Sarah Viens is Principal Trumpet of the Eugene Symphony and Orchestra Next. She is a member of the Sunriver Music Festival Orchestra and an avid freelancer and music administrator throughout the region.  Micheal Hettwer is Principal Horn of the Portland Opera, and the Salem and Linfield Chamber Orchestras. Carson Keeble is a frequent guest trombonist with the Oregon, Seattle and Colorado Symphonies.  All are highly sought-after educators and clinicians throughout the country and have private teaching studios in Portland, Salem and Eugene.

There is a suggested donation of $8/adults, $5/students, and the concert is free to Willamette faculty, students, staff, and ICL members with ID.  For further information contact the Willamette University Music Department at 503-370-6255503-370-6255

Event Image Graphic Novels and Identity in Africa and the Diaspora: A Visual Postcolonial Discourse
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Former French President Charles de Gaulle’s famous claim that Belgian character Tintin was his only international rival speaks to the ubiquity of bandes dessinées (comics and graphic novels) in the francophone world. Similarly, in Peau noire, Masques blancs, Frantz Fanon highlights the popularity of bandes dessinées and points to the negative psychological impact of such texts on non-European readers who identify with Western explorer characters rather than with the racialized stereotypical images of non-European characters. One major factor for this is that the emergence and development of French and Belgian bandes dessinées took place during the height of European colonialism and subsequently drew from and participated in a visual culture—such as travel postcards, brochures and keepsakes from colonial expositions, and in particular advertisements for exotic goods such as Banania—that helped construct the European imaginary of Africa. My current work examines how contemporary cartoonists employ a wide range of visual and verbal strategies to subvert existing visual stereotypes of blacks and Africa prevalent in French-language graphic novels (the most ubiquitous example being Tintin in the Congo) and visual culture (including ad campaigns for exotic goods such as Banania). Focusing on cartoonists from West and Central Africa whose work dates from the 1980s to today, my work is chiefly concerned with the representations of postcolonial identity formation. Moreover, I contend that these cartoonists, by challenging mainstream European graphic narrative conventions, invite readers to question meaning-making processes and actively generate new ways of thinking of and visualizing Africa.

Event Image Lecture | An Artist Looks at Ice Age Art
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Portland Oregon artist George Johanson will present a free illustrated lecture entitled An Artist Looks at Ice Age Art on April 6 at 2 p.m. in the Roger Hull Lecture Hall at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In 2007, Johanson was impressed and inspired by his visit to a series of caves in France that included Lascaux II, Rouffignac and Pech Merle. The caves are renowned for their beautifully rendered horses, aurochs, stags, bison, humans and abstract symbols that date back to between 13,000 and 32,000 years ago.

In the lecture, Johanson will share his insights on these caves, as well as others found in France and Spain. Why are these images from long ago so compelling? Why was this art placed deep in caves in areas that were difficult to access? What does this art tells us about prehistoric life and these ancient artists, and what does it reveal about ourselves and today’s art?

Event Image Genetics and African Prehistory: Possibilities and Challenges
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Dr. Scott MacEachern
Professor of Anthropology
Bowdoin College

Less archaeology has been done in Africa than on any other continent, and the prehistory of much of this vast continent remains more or less unknown. Historical genetics provides us with a new and extremely powerful way of looking at population movements and contacts in the past, and the comparison of archaeological and genetic data offers the prospects of immense improvement in our understanding of African prehistory. At the same time, there are dangers involved in such interdisciplinary undertakings: archaeological and genetic data offer insights into different aspects of human history, and each approach has its own strengths and weaknesses. In particular, genetics can reinforce assumptions that African populations are ‘people without history’, remnants of humanity’s past. This lecture will offer a discussion of these issues, with examples drawn from the Lake Chad Basin and other parts of the continent.

Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series, Elizabeth Schumann, piano
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Pianist Elizabeth Schumann will conclude this year’s series with a recital at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 10, at Hudson Hall. The Washington Post called Schumann “deft, relentless and devastatingly good; the type of performance that you experience not so much with your ears, as with your solar plexus.” In addition to Liszt and Beethoven, the program will feature the visionary Piano Sonata No. 3 by Australian composer Carl Vine. This work was commissioned by Schumann as part of the Gilmore award.

First place winner of both the Bösendorfer International Piano Competition and the Pacific International Piano Competition, Schumann has won over 25 prizes and awards in other major national and international competitions. She was honored with the prestigious Gilmore Young Artists Award, and was highlighted in a PBS Television documentary on the Gilmore Festival.

Schumann is a frequent performer of 21st century works, most recently performing the World Premieres of award winning Canadian Composer Hugues Leclair’s American Haikus (2010) and acclaimed Austrian Composer Gernot Wolfgang’s Passage to Vienna for Piano Trio (2012).

Event Image The Trojan Women [PREVIEW]
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

In the aftermath of the Trojan War, the women of the ruined nation of Troy, gathered by their conquerors, await their fate even as they mourn their dead.  This play, written in 415 BCE as Euripides’ public protest against the Peloponnesian War, forces us to look beyond social justice, beyond nationalism and patriotism to consider at core what we believe to be right, and what we know is wrong.  This aggressive, hard-hitting, movement-based production will force us to scrape away the grit, to wipe the dirt from our eyes as we look beyond despair to find our humanity.

Life in a Jar
12:00 PM

*WU Campus - Smith Auditorium

As part of the observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) month, the Jewish Student Union invites the campus and Salem communities to join them in recognizing the life of the great Polish Holocaust heroine, Irena Sendler, who saved over 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto. Her amazing story will be shared through a performance of the play Life in a Jar by members of the Irena Sendler Project from Ft. Scott, Kansas. As part of the mission to increase understanding of the Holocaust, the JSU is partnering with Marion County resident Colleen Samuel to bring area high school students to the performance.

Few had heard of Irena Sendler in 1999, but now, after 324 performances of Life in a Jar, a website with enormous usage, a best-selling book, and world-wide media attention, Irena is becoming known to the world. This all became possible through the work of three Kansas students who "discovered" her and, through the play they wrote, changed the world Their story is part of this compelling presentation.

Admission to the performance is free for festival seating. Donations are gratefully accepted for the Life in a Jar Foundation/Children of the Holocaust. Copies of the book by Jack Mayer will be available for purchase.

MASTER CLASS FOR PIANISTS — free and open to the public Friday, April 11, 1-3 p.m., Hudson Hall Pianist Elizabeth Schumann has a diverse career portfolio of projects, recordings, and performances which have brought her all over the world as recitalist, chamber musician, and concerto soloist. The Washington Post Magazine noted her playing as “deft, relentless, and devastatingly good—the sort of performance you experience not so much with your ears as your solar plexus.” The first place winner of both the Bösendorfer International Piano Competition and the Pacific International Piano Competition, Elizabeth has won over 25 prizes and awards in other major national and international competitions, including the Cleveland International Piano Competition and the Hilton Head International Piano Competition. Elizabeth was honored with the prestigious Gilmore Young Artists Award, and was highlighted in a PBS Television documentary on the Gilmore Festival. She has performed solo recitals and chamber music concerts worldwide, in such venues as the Kennedy Center, Vienna’s Bösendorfer Saal, Toronto’s Koerner Hall, and Montreal’s Place des Arts. Irresistibly drawn to contemporary music and with the help of the Gilmore International keyboard Festival, the Colburn School, and the Australia council, Elizabeth commissioned the composer Carl Vine to write the piano sonata which will appear on the recital. The recital also includes both landmark Beethoven op 27 Sonata “Fantasias”, and from the stunningly difficult and descriptive Liszt Venezia e Napoli set, "Gondoliera", “Canzone" and "Tarantella".

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

This talk on the craft and process of narrative writing explores the relationship between comedy and lamentation. I examine work by the Coen brothers, Nikolai Gogol, and Penelope Fitzgerald—with diversions to Lenny Bruce, Sarah Silverman, Richard Pryor, and The Office—to understand how writers use comedy to wrestle with the complexities of mortality, grief, faith, and compassion. I also discuss how comedy has played a role in my own recent work.

Why Run when you can S.O.A.R?
10:30 AM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Outside

This is a 5k/1k run/ walk for charity being put on by Running Club, S.O.A.R. (survivors of abuse and rape) and a few other off-campus organizations beginning at 10:30 am on Brown Field with a convocation/awards to follow. This event is to recognize sexual assault awareness month in April. It's focus will be hope, moving forward together, and supporting one another. Salem is hurting, people need hope, we need our community to stand together, and we need to show that Salem is serious about stopping sexual assault. The funds from the run will go to the Center for Hope and Safety (formerly Mid-Valley) so they can help support survivors. The premise of having a run is that 1/4 of the runners and any attendees who volunteer will be wearing teal t-shirts to show a visual representation of how many people are impacted without calling upon survivors to be public. At 11:30 we will have speakers from Mid-Valley, the district attorney's office, and others. There are many off-campus organizations working with me/sponsoring on this project including Gallagher Fitness, the Salem Police Department, Mid-Valley Women's Crisis center (renaming: the Center for Hope and Safety) Healing Hearts, among a few other organizations included at the Salem Area Response Taskforce that I have been a part of. These groups and others at this event will have different booths, and different clubs who support this project and want to be part of the solution are more then welcome (PLEASE!!). If your organization would like to be, please email me!!! For example, K Sig and potentially other greek organizations signing "New Pledges" who pledge not to commit violence and to be an active bystander, Green Dot will be involved, and at least ASWU sound will be there, possibly a band or other performances will go on from 12:30 until 3pm. There will be food! Following that for a late lunch/dinner, what I would LOVE to see happen would be inviting other schools to come and after the ceremonies breaking into small group meetings where we could talk about ways in which different college campuses are handling issues of sexual assault and possible solutions.

Student Scholarship Recognition Day (SSRD) is held each spring to celebrate the exemplary scholarship and creativity of Willamette University students. It is a day for students to share the fruits of their research, to present musical, theatrical, and dance performances, and to display works of art to fellow students, faculty, family, and friends. Regular classes are not held on SSRD as a way of honoring the extraordinary accomplishments of our students and demonstrating Willamette University’s institutional commitment to student scholarship. The students whose work is presented at SSRD have been supported in various ways. Some have worked directly with members of the faculty as research assistants or on student-faculty collaborative projects. Others have designed and conducted their own research, often during summer break or throughout their senior year for a senior thesis or capstone research project. Still others have created original works in fine and performing arts. Applications are currently being accepted and will be through February 26, 2014.

The Trojan Women "Pre-Talk"
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Join Associate Professor of Classics Ortwin Knorr for a lively discussion about The Trojan Women immediately prior to that evening's performance. 

Ancient Greek tragedy was a much more exotic art form than most people who ever watched a Greek play performed on a modern stage realize. By introducing you to ancient Greek performance practices, the contemporary political background, and the modern scholarly debates surrounding Euripides' The Trojan Women, this pre-show presentation will sharpen your senses for the continued relevance of the questions this play first posed to an Athenian audience in 415 BCE. 
Event Image Open Road Screening
7:00 PM

Open Road screening with director Alain LeTourneau in attendance.Open Road is a feature-length, 16mm experimental documentary about urban space designed for movement and storage of private motor vehicles. The film surveys the visual-aural experience of roads, their building and maintenance, and the culture of widespread motor vehicle use. By inverting the notion of roads as a means to a destination, Open Road examines modern roads as places. Places that have a specific function and character in the American urban landscape. The overall structure and pace of the film unfolds as stationary long takes, or tableau shots, tracking shots from inside moving cars, and several motion controlled, 360-degree panning shots of various urban sites. During select segments of the film, the voice track will comprise excerpts from John Charles Fremont's The Exploring Expedition to the Rocky Mountains, Oregon and California. This expedition report, written in the mid-1840s, functioned as a kind of guide book for emigrant wagon trains moving west, and was the first government report to be widely read by an American public.

Event Image The Trojan Women
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

In the aftermath of the Trojan War, the women of the ruined nation of Troy, gathered by their conquerors, await their fate even as they mourn their dead.  This play, written in 415 BCE as Euripides’ public protest against the Peloponnesian War, forces us to look beyond social justice, beyond nationalism and patriotism to consider at core what we believe to be right, and what we know is wrong.  This aggressive, hard-hitting, movement-based production will force us to scrape away the grit, to wipe the dirt from our eyes as we look beyond despair to find our humanity.

Event Image The Trojan Women (Matinee)
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

In the aftermath of the Trojan War, the women of the ruined nation of Troy, gathered by their conquerors, await their fate even as they mourn their dead.  This play, written in 415 BCE as Euripides’ public protest against the Peloponnesian War, forces us to look beyond social justice, beyond nationalism and patriotism to consider at core what we believe to be right, and what we know is wrong.  This aggressive, hard-hitting, movement-based production will force us to scrape away the grit, to wipe the dirt from our eyes as we look beyond despair to find our humanity.

The Trojan Women "Pre-Talk"
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Join Associate Professor of Classics Mary Bachvarova for a lively discussion about The Trojan Women immediately prior to that evening's performance. 

Euripides' The Trojan Women presents the voices of female victims singing passionate laments to protest their wartime suffering. Several of these features require deeper explanation for modern audiences to understand the implications of the tragic performance of the Trojan women's lament for Euripides' original audience. Professor Bachvarova will first discuss the democratic context of the rise of tragedy, presenting the argument that in tragedy, male citizens co-opted the female art of lament, silencing their dangerously divisive voices on the streets of Athens while making use of the power structures and behavior of the males who controlled them. Hecuba and the other Trojan women are doubly "other", female and foreign, the mythical enemies of the Greeks, and witnessing their outsider voices allowed Athenian citizens to participate safely in a protest of the cruel Athenian military policies during the Peloponnesian War.

Event Image The Trojan Women [MATINEE]
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

In the aftermath of the Trojan War, the women of the ruined nation of Troy, gathered by their conquerors, await their fate even as they mourn their dead.  This play, written in 415 BCE as Euripides’ public protest against the Peloponnesian War, forces us to look beyond social justice, beyond nationalism and patriotism to consider at core what we believe to be right, and what we know is wrong.  This aggressive, hard-hitting, movement-based production will force us to scrape away the grit, to wipe the dirt from our eyes as we look beyond despair to find our humanity.

"Neon Mirror Festival", an electronic dance opera
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

SALEM, Ore.— On Tuesday, April 29, 8:00 p.m., the Willamette University music department will present Neon Mirror Festival,  an electronic dance opera by music composition major Derek Sup in fulfillment of his senior project.  The event will take place in the Hudson Concert Hall, Rogers Music Center and is free and open to the public.

The Synopsis: Abra, a sheltered girl who's thoughts are constantly consumed by her Demons, attends her first Electronic Dance Music Festival–the Neon Mirror Festival.  She takes hallucinogenic drugs in hopes to quell the demons' voices inside of her head, but the effect is the opposite, spiraling her into psychological turmoil.

Abra's Demons exist only in Abra's thoughts, so that only she can hear them.  The quartet of Demons constantly reminds Abra that she is not good enough, not cool enough, will never amount to anything, and has no friends.  They fill her mind with a constant flood of self-deprecating thoughts.

The Festival Attendees are the EDM society, addicted to the rush of life in sex and drugs.  Their only priority is to stay as "turnt" on life as possible, and whatever action they take must contribute to maintaining a life of constant ecstasy.

The Festival Ringmasters/Drug Vendors sell drugs, 'Research Chemicals' to the attendees as they enter the festival for great sums of money.

Abra is played by Grace Katzmar (ballerina, soprano); Abra's Demons are played by Rick Jones, Connor Soejoto, Alec Chase, and Nick Newman; The Festival Attendees are played by Tandem;

Festival Performers are played by the Waller String Trio (Chloe Prendergast, Jason Pegis, Sherry Liang), and Derek Sup; and the Festival Ringmasters/Drug Vendors are played by Wade Pritchard and Molly Pritchard.

For further information contact the Willamette University Music Department at 503-370-6255.

The Paradox of Local Food Insecurity: Presentation of Research Findings
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Why is there so much food insecurity in such an agriculturally rich area? Seven talented Willamette University students devoted their spring semester to investigating this local paradox. Working in collaboration with the Marion Polk Food Share, they examined the unique and common circumstances facing people within several demographic groups: the under and unemployed, children, the elderly, the homeless, veterans, mentally and physically disabled, migrant farm workers, and people coming in and out of correctional facilities. Their research results provide new insights aimed to improve the work of the Marion Polk Food Share and other local agencies also endeavoring to alleviate food insecurity in our region. You are cordially invited to a presentation of their findings. Refreshments will be served.
