Concert: Gertrude Stein and Friends (4/21)

Wendy Salkind, associate professor of theatre, will perform readings of three short prose pieces by the American modernist writer Gertrude Stein in the free concert “Gertrude Stein and Friends.” Exploring Stein’s writings as musical compositions, Salkind reads “Matisse” and “Picasso” unaccompanied, while the rhythmic and witty story “Miss Furr and Miss Skeene” is read in dialogue with eleven percussion instruments played by Tom Goldstein, associate professor of music, in a score composed by Linda Dusman, professor of music.

Also on the program is “Still to JSB” by Anneliese Weibel and Dusman’s “magnificat 4: Ida, Ida.”

The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 21, in the Fine Arts Recital Hall. Admission is free.
