Description

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

(Gene Kelly & Stanley Donen, USA, 1952, 103 min; rated G)

This exuberant satire of Hollywood in the late 20s, at the time of the transition from silents to talkies, is probably the most enjoyable of all American movie musicals. The teamwork of the stars, Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds, is joyful and the material is first-rate. –Pauline Kael

Music AVENTA PRESENTS: Wolfgang Rihm's Chiffre 2017-03-12 20:00:00
Description

Aventa Ensemble
Bill Linwood, conductor

Performing:
Gerhard Staebler/Michael Oesterle – Den Mullfahrern von San Francisco (The Garbagemen of San Fransisco)
Wolfgang Rihm – Chiffre V and VII *
Philippe Leroux – AIR-RÉ
Moritz Eggert – Interior at Petworth *

* Canadian premieres

Aventa performs Wolfgang Rihm’s Chiffre V and Chiffre VII. Described by Tom Service of The Guardian as one of the most approachable, engaging and profound composers writing music today, Rihm descibes these works as “theatrical, bleak and frosty, yet darkly splendid.”

Munich based composer Moritz Eggert describes “Interior at Petworth” as “an expression of my increasing dissatisfaction with new music”. In particular, Moritz finds himself bored with pieces whose beginnings already evoke a clearly defined “style” and finds these works so often lack in vitality, freedom and real surprise. Written for an ensemble of seven – adventurous – musicians, there is no set course to this evening’s event!

Pre-concert talk at 7:15 p.m. Tickets available online and at the door.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-12 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.
