Cancelled: Playing Through is the Easy Part!
In order to minimize health and safety risks from COVID-19 to our patrons, the larger community, and Duke students, faculty, and staff, Duke University has adopted new policies on spring semester classes, residential life, travel, events, and campus visitors. In keeping with the university's directives, we are cancelling public events at the Rubenstein Arts Center through April 20.
Drop by the Ruby on Friday at noon for a casual art talk and free lunch to learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more.
Join Duke University's chamber music students for this special performance focusing on process. How do chamber musicians play together without a conductor? They communicate and rehearse, but how? Do they play straight in time? (Absolutely not.) And the first violinist is the leader... right? (Wrong again!)
Students will show and act out examples of the extra-musical techniques they use to find consensus when playing together begins with different ideas and approaches. The program ends with a unified, committed, and comprehensive performance.
