“The past is reinvented and becomes the future. But the lineage is everything.” —Philip Glass
The Evolution Contemporary Music Series and In the Stacks join forces to present pianist Vicky Chow in a performance of music by Baltimore-born-and-raised composer Philip Glass. Hailed as “one of our era’s most brilliant pianists” (Pitchfork), Chow will perform selections from Glass’s Piano Etudes, interspersed with readings from the composer’s memoir, Words Without Music, performed by Rahzé Cheatham.
The concert will feature photographs of Baltimore and beyond in conversation with the music, as well as a one-night only display featuring treasures from Sheridan Libraries Special Collections.
Come enjoy an evening of music, photography, and literature in one of the most beautiful libraries in the world!
