TERENCE BLANCHARD | FRI OCT 15 | Time TBD 

Lecture/Demonstration: Two-time Oscar® nominee, 2018 USA Fellow, five-time GRAMMY®-winning trumpeter & composer and the first black composer staged by the Metropolitan Opera, Terence Blanchard will share what and who inspires and influences his ever-expanding amalgam of music and storytelling.  Appropriate for Middle and High School. With Support From The Long Family Endowment for Community Outreach in the Arts.

MIWA MAYETREK | WED APR 20 | 9:30am - 3pm 
Infinitely Yours is an emotional, dream-like meditation on climate catastrophe and the anthropocene - the current era where human influence has effected almost all realms of Earth’s natural systems.This World Made Itself tells the story of the earth from its beginnings to our current, complex age, alternating between semi-scientific and dreamlike, fantastical tones. The artist joins two multimedia live performance works, combining projected animation and her shadow silhouette, as she interacts with video, merging film and theatre to create a unique kind of spectacle.  

After the workshop, view a display in Zoellner's lobby showcasing Lehigh University Humanities Lab Research funded by an Andrew W. Mellon Grant; At 4pm, Ms. Mayetrek will give a FREE performance to participating schools and the public courtesy of the LU Humanities Lab.
