Classical Violist Ashleigh Gordon at the Clemmons Family Farm
Meet the Diversity of Classical Composers
Don't miss this beautiful, musical and highly enjoyable approach to expand your knowledge and appreciation of the diversity of the composers of classical music. Artist-in-residence Ashleigh Gordon will lead the audience on a musical journey for an introduction to various composers through time and geography. Focused on the often overlooked and underrepresented voices from the African diaspora, this lecture will survey some of the trailblazers – dating from three centuries ago to the present and hailing from three continents – that have and continue to shape the classical music world. This program is designed for adults (families welcome!). The lecture is sprinkled with gorgeous live viola performances of musical excerpts. The presentation includes a selection of pre-recorded performances by Castle of Our Skins, a concert and educational series dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music, of which Boston-based Ashleigh Gordon is Creative and Founding Director. A brief discussion and socializing (including some yummy African diaspora refreshments!) will follow the presentation. Adults and families with children 12 and older will love this event. Ashleigh Gordon has performed throughout North America, Europe, and Hong Kong, ranging from chamber and orchestral music settings to off-Broadway and new music productions.
