But don’t take my word for it. Find out for yourself at Ashlin Aronin’s senior recital this Wednesday, March 6 at 8pm in the Memorial Chapel.

The program includes organ works by 20th-century French master Olivier Messiaen, an organ transcription of a piano sonata by his teacher Maurice Emmanuel, and original compositions for small ensemble and computer-controlled organ.

Featuring Kumbi Kuti ’16 (vox), Jessie Marino MA ’13 (cello), Jeremy Webber ’13 (bassoon) and MIDI ‘0101 (organ).

Here One Day Screening

HereOneDay Still Preferred 1

From CAPS and Active Minds:

You are invited to a special, sneak peek screening of HERE ONE DAY, a documentary by award-winning filmmaker Kathy Leichter. Q&A to follow with the Director and her brother, Josh Leichter ’90.

When filmmaker Kathy Leichter moved back into the apartment she grew up in after her mother committed suicide, she discovered a hidden box of audiotapes. Sixteen years passed before she had the courage to delve into this trove, unearthing details that her mother had recorded about every aspect of her life, including marriage, motherhood, and her struggles with bipolar disorder. Playing like a Greek tragedy, HERE ONE DAY is a bracing, visually arresting, emotionally candid film about a woman coping with mental illness, her relationships with her family, and the ripple effects of her suicide on those she loved.

HERE ONE DAY recently had its world premiere in The Netherlands at IDFA, one of the most prestigious documentary film festivals in the world. Come join us for this special pre-release screening and discussion. More info here and here.

Date: Wednesday, March 6th
Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Judd 116
