This concert series fills the space of the Annenberg Court with a dramatic chorus of voices on Sundays, alternating monthly with the Solo Series. Evolving out of Dr. Barnes's interest in choral music, Resounding Voices features a diverse array of musical periods and genres, with upcoming performances by the Westminster Choir, St. Thomas Gospel Choir, and other exciting choral artists. This performance includes the rarely heard "Vigilia" by Rautavaara alongside other beautiful 20th- and 21st-century works, sung by the Philadelphia Voices and led by guest conductor Robert Whalen. Admission includes pre-concert collection access from 3:30-5 p.m.
In their first US tour and only appearance in Philadelphia, the Havana Lyceum Orchestra travels from Cuba to the Barnes Foundation to perform, with acclaimed pianist Simone Dinnerstein, the works of their new Sony album, "Mozart in Havana." For the recording, Grammy® nominee Dinnerstein collaborated with the orchestra over three long, sleepless nights, using donated strings and recording equipment brought in by Grammy®-winning producer Adam Abeshouse. Their collaborative performance here at the Barnes, which features Mozart's Piano Concerti no. 21 and 23, is a testament to the ability of music to cross all cultural and language barriers. Admission includes pre-concert collection access from 6 to 7 p.m.
Playing on the "urban rider" theme explored in the works of Mohamed Bourouissa, the Barnes presents "The Magnificent Seven," the 1960 classic starring Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen. A remake of "Seven Samurai," the Japanese epic historical film from 1954, "The Magnificent Seven" set the standard for the American Western genre and was declared by the US National Film Registry as "culturally, historically, aesthetically significant."
In celebration of his exhibition at the Barnes, Mohamed Bourouissa discusses his work with Philadelphia's Fletcher Street Riding Club, addressing urban aesthetics, gentrification, the post-industrial landscape, and the transformation of the environment through community and social justice.
