Please join the GSAS Student Center Choir for an online film screening in honor of Black History Month. We'll be meeting on Zoom to watch the film "Expanding the Narrative: Slave Songs and Spirituals as Early Music" by Early Music Access Project. All are welcome to join us for this event if you're interested - and any friends, roommates, and partners who are interested in joining are welcome to come along as well. The film is one hour and fifteen minutes long; Choir Music Fellow Rachel Rosenman will also provide a very brief introduction before we watch the film together, and after the film, anyone who would like to is welcome to stay in the Zoom room to discuss.
Early Music Access Project has made their "Expanding the Narrative" film available to watch online for free. The film focuses on Black American musics from the United States' early history, advocating for an expanded narrative of musical history that includes Black American musicians and musical forms from this time period. During the film, you'll get to hear musical performances of traditional spirituals, as well as comments from the performers about their experiences performing these songs and navigating their roles as Black musicians working in the world of classical music today. Featured in this film are Early Music Access Project's artistic director David McCormick and singers Reggie Mobley, Patrick Dailey, and James Dargan. More information about "Expanding the Narrative" can be found on the Early Music Access Project website here.
