Where Art Thou?

That ballet class your mom made you take.

That ballet class your mom made you take.

Travel near, travel far! Whether via the subway or shopping carts, travel to the arts! Kyra Bloom has composed this list of the most happening happenin’s in the area. Submit your own to events@bwog.com.

Near:

  • “Expedition,” an original play by Rae Binstock, opens this Thursday in the Diana Black Box.  This piece combines the concept of a long-distance homosexual relationship “collided and refracted” through the story of Lewis and Clark.  Come show your support for this talented writer and cast; tickets are $5 at the TIC or online, as usual. 
  • The e r a Dance Collective is a small but mighty dance group on campus.  The Collective is having a performance on Saturday morning, from 10:30 am to 12 pm, in the Streng Studio in the Barnard Hall Annex.  It’s a casual and free way to admire some beautiful dancers while recovering from last night’s hangover.
  • LyricLion presents its first solo concert on Friday at 8 pm in Furnald Lounge.  Singers and harpists will be featured in these new compositions.  Check out their Soundcloud here.
  • The Musical Mentors Collaborative is teaming up with Columbia Classical Performers for a fundraising concert!  Musical Mentors is a student-run volunteer organization that gives free music lessons to elementary school-aged kids.  The concert is on Saturday at 4 pm in Lerner C555.  Suggested donation is $5, and all proceeds go toward providing music and instruments to the students of PS 145.  Good for your soul and for the kids.

Far-ish:

  • Go check out Saul Steinberg’s Works from the 50’s – 80’s at the Adam Baumgold Gallery on the Upper East Side.  You may not know his name, but you’ll definitely recognize his artwork from The New Yorker.  The exhibit’s last day is 4/20, so go view these cool drawings of your city in a (wink wink) different way.
  • It might be a bit of a splurge, but it’s worth it to see conductor Alan Gilbert and violinist Joshua Bell perform Bernstein, Ives, and a Rouse World Premiere.  The concert is at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center all this weekend, so the commute isn’t far!
  • This Sunday at 2 pm, the People’s Symphony Concert presents Takács Quartet for the incredible price of $10.  It’s the people’s concert for a reason.  Bring a date and impress them by paying for tickets–available here.
