Gruppe, Curtin, Hibbard, Allen, Belcher, Blair, Bryan, Colburn, Conanway, Heyde, Hines, and Movalli.

RENOIR: THE BODY, THE SENSES

Morning departure: Meet our private coach with tour host Mickey Myers and Goodspeed & Bach trip director Deb Flanders and depart for Williamstown and the The Clark Museum for two exhibits. 

Upon arrival enjoy a buffet lunch at the museum.  Afterward we’ll see the exhibit RENOIR: THE BODY, THE SENSES. Over the course of his long career, Pierre-Auguste Renoir continually turned to the human figure for artistic inspiration. In recognition of the centenary of Renoir’s death, the Clark Art Institute and the Kimbell Art Museum present Renoir: The Body, The Senses. This daring exhibition is the first major exploration of Renoir’s unceasing interest in the human form, and it reconsiders Renoir as a constantly evolving artist whose style moved from Realism into luminous Impressionism, culminating in the modern classicism of his last decades.  In addition to the Renoir exhibit we’ll see IDA O’KEEFFE: ESCAPING GEORGIA’S SHADOW.   Ida Ten Eyck O’Keeffe was a talented American modernist, whose paintings and prints explore realism and abstraction in the service of a distinctive artistic style. On Escaping Georgia’s Shadow assesses Ida’s work and life, as well as the sibling rivalry between Ida and her well-known sister, Georgia O’Keeffe. Guided tour of the museum’s permanent collection will also be available. Return in the late afternoon.

Aaron Copland’s America with pianist Michael Arnowitt, July 20th, 4PM

Bryan Memorial Gallery and the Cambridge Arts Council present:

Aaron Copland’s America with pianist Michael Arnowitt

Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 4 PM

Pianist Michael Arnowitt performs a program surveying the music of Aaron Copland, who created what is considered today to be a distinctively American sound in classical music. His landmark compositions from the 1930’s and 1940’s used energetic jazz rhythms and folk song material  from different regions of the United States and Mexico, blended into his own classical music writing style to evoke our nation’s vast landscape. Michael Arnowitt will perform music from Copland’s Four Piano Blues, Piano Variations, El Salon Mexico, and Copland’s famous Appalachian Spring. Also included on the program is Conversation at the Soda Fountain, from the music Copland wrote for the film version of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town.    

Copland was one of a wave of American composers who travelled to Paris in the early twentieth century to study with the renowned teacher Nadia Boulanger at the Fontainebleau School in France, a program Michael Arnowitt also attended some 60 years later. While Copland was influenced by his European travels and being exposed to the great modern composers of the time such as Igor Stravinsky, Copland returned to our country determined to create something uniquely American. The optimistic, clear tone of his musical style became iconic and has influenced American composers to the present day and contributed to the cultural creation of an American consciousness and character.

There is no charge for this program although a program donation is gratefully received.
