Coming at you swift as a coursing river, with all the force of a great typhoon, this Disney adventure flick tells the legend of the female warrior who disguises herself as a man and joins the Chinese army. With flowing animation, memorable musical numbers, and Murphy’s dragon antics, it’s a film worth fighting for.
A senior music recital by Rachel Rosenman ’17, “The Music of Mel Bonis.” As a Catholic woman writing music in late nineteenth-century France, Mel Bonis faced unique challenges that influenced her compositions. Despite the difficulties she faced, Ms. Bonis produced over 300 compositions throughout multiple genres. After her death, much of her music was unfortunately forgotten until the late 1990s, when the composer’s descendants began serious efforts to research her life and work. Ms. Bonis’ music is still not well known, especially outside of her native France. As part of thesis work by Rachel Rosenman in Music and French Studies, this recital presents chamber music by Mel Bonis that showcases her music style, revealing unique works by a lesser-known woman composer.
