EMG Presents: Mary Halvorson & Jessica Pavone


Ben Zucker ’15 wants you to experiment a little:

The third and final concert this semester brought to you by the Experimental Music Group, Jessica Pavone and Wesleyan alumni Mary Halvorson will present their captivating set of “improvised/composer/strange/melodic songs for guitar and viola.”

Mary Halvorson has been called “the most future-seeking guitarist working right now, thinking out the instrument on a level most couldn’t comprehend” (NPR). Jessica Pavone has been called “Jessica Pavone is a vital force in New York’s music community, capable and competent of playing way out in left field, or keeping things much closer to home” (Dusted). They have been playing together as a duo for years now, with four critically-acclaimed albums released. Together, they make what legendary Downtown composer Elliott Sharp called “transcendent chamber music outside any genre”; it’s a meeting of minds not to be missed.

Pathways in Medicine: A Conversation with Dr. Carlton Barnswell

Rilwan Babajide ’16 writes in to perpetuate the Western medical-industrial complex:

In this talk with renowned urologist Dr. Carlton Barnswell, students will learn about the wealth of opportunities available to them in the medical field. We will talk about where these opportunities are as well as how to approach them step-by-step. The objective is to provide interested students with a goal and a framework on how to achieve it.The reason for this talk is because in past years there has been a downward trend in the number of pre-med students from Wesleyan who have matriculated to the ranks of M.D.. Our goal is to change this and we believe that one of the ways to do that is by educating students about opportunities out there for them, instill goals in them, and teach them about the framework and strategies necessary to obtain those goals and achieve ultimate success in the medical field.
