Sharing Culture and Story Through Art
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
In this world, we are exposed to a variety of cultures and values. Art gives us the ability to express ourselves differently. We can teach others about our culture while promoting unity and equality.

Join local artist Hector Castellanos Lara in discussing the importance of sharing culture and story through art. As a community leader, artist and organizer, Hector works with diverse populations to cross borders – both real and imagined – to create projects that awaken the imagination and help organizations create new community relationships.

Brink of Insanity - Concert
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Burning River Baroque presents:
On the Brink of Insanity:
Portrayals of Women as Mad, Crazy, & Unhinged

Malina Rauschenfels, soprano and violin
Paula Maust, harpsichord
Guest Artist: Anna Steinhoff, baroque cello

$10-$20 suggested donation

Dramatic musical works often contain scenes of overwhelming emotion in which male characters are frequently portrayed as being consumed by power. When women are overcome with emotion, however, male composers often attribute madness or craziness to them. Burning River Baroque will present a selection of works by George Frideric Handel, John Eccles, and Henry Purcell where women’s passions and emotional expressions render them as unhinged in the eyes of their creators. In a new move for the ensemble, the program will feature an original work by Malina Rauschenfels using texts from the Salem witch trial of Bridget Bishop. This fusion of new and old works will shed light on how the ways we describe those who are different from us can have very real and long-lasting effects on the community at large.

"Burning River Baroque left an indelible imprint on my psyche."
