“Through the Lens: Visions of African American Experience, 1950-1970.” @ The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art
Nov 18 2015 – Apr 3 2016 all-day

This exhibition features over sixty works by seven photographers active during the civil rights era (1950-1970). Organized to underscore different artistic intentions and photographic approaches, Through the Lens highlights various aspects of African American experience during this time of tremendous social and political change.

Photographers Danny Lyon, Bruce Davidson, and Charles Moore bore witness to the activities and struggles of the civil rights movements as a means to effect social change. W. Eugene Smith, Gordon Parks and James Karales produced extended photo-essays that brought stories about the lives of ordinary African Americans to the national public. Drawing inspiration from music and literature, Roy DeCarava and Gordon Parks made original, creative photographs as purely artistic expressions.

Brahms’ Violin Concerto and Beethoven’s Fourth @ Kauffman Center
Feb 7 @ 2:00 pm

Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is filled with the intense drama associated with the composer as well as episodes revealing his keen sense of humor. Brahms composed his only Violin Concerto for the great Austro-Hungarian virtuoso Joseph Joachim. A virtuoso of our time, Vadim Gluzman, performs this Mount Everest of the concerto repertoire. John Adams wrote The Chairman Dances — Foxtrot for Orchestra as a separate, musical response to his opera, Nixon in China, which was inspired by Madame Mao Zedong’s prior life as a movie actress.
