From the CFA:

Wesleyan Private Lessons Teacher Lisa Moore has been described in The New Yorker as “New York’s queen of avant-garde piano.” At the Russell House, she will present highlights from the Philip Glass solo piano collection featured on her new album “Mad Rush” (Orange Mountain Music). The roots of the music lie in motion pictures (“The Thin Blue Line,” “The Hours”), opera and Ghandi (“Satyagraha”), and Buddhism (the Dalai Lama’s entrance into St. John the Divine Cathedral).

Date: Sunday, November 15

A Day in the Life of Das Racist

Director Morgan Spurlock’s (best known for Super Size Me) “A Day in the Life” Hulu series followed Das Racist (Victor Vazquez ’06, Himanshu Suri ’07) around for a day. Thanks, Hulu “A Day in the Life” series! Stuyvesant High School shout out at 3:22, Wesleyan shout out at 4:09 and 4:32. Highlight: meeting with composer Philip Glass for a Free Tibet concert at Carnegie Hall (10:48). This is a good watch if you have 25 minutes to spare.
