- The 76th Season of Concerts 2017–2018
- The Canales Project in partnership with TEDx MidAtlantic
October 8 at 3:30
West Building, West Garden Court
The Canales Project produces concert programs in which issues of culture and identity are explored through music and interaction with excellent artists who also understand and have lived those issues. These concerts offer opportunities to hear music from many traditions while incorporating conversations between the artists and the audience in which key questions will be explored. This program includes performances by pianist Lara Downes, Kaoru Watanabe, a Brooklyn-based composer and practitioner of the Japanese taiko drum and shinobue bamboo flutes, and GRAMMY-nominated tabla player Sandeep Das.
TEDxMidAtlantic celebrates the power of ideas to positively change the world and aims to build community by bringing together like-minded people who believe in this mission. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At such an event, TED Talks and live speakers combine to spark deep conversation.
