PeabodyConservatory HopkinsatHome February 24, February 24, WednesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home  Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome February 24, 2021 - March 24, 2021 (5 weeks) Wednesdays, 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM EST Indigenous North Americans were surprised to discover Spanish, French and British explorers on their shores in the 1500s– and from the outset some were taught, believe it or not, to sing the Catholic Mass in Latin. But the story of American music soon includes British influence, and along with the other cultures mentioned, it was music of the enslaved from Africa that would co-mingle and flavor the music evolving in North America. This course examines how Native, European and African cultural materials come to play in all sorts of music -- sacred and secular, commercial and freely played, urban and rural, amateur and professional. Materials presented in these classes span the two centuries after Jamestown’s establishment and include plenty of live and recorded musical performances as well as rich, lovely images and relevant videos.  Throughout these sessions we will explore and discuss the functions of music: ritual and worship, dance, oral history and story-telling, warring and protest, theater, and sheer entertainment. This broad, rich history includes ballads, spiritual and other songs, marches, dances, psalm- and hymn-singing and both commercial and classical expressions. Each of our five sessions will allow for interaction and question-driven discussion, plus some optional homework. Week 1 - Overview – peoples of North America, Spain, France, England and Africa - a listening tour and comparison of what they bring to bear in America Week 2 - Colonial Music, Sacred and Secular – how do the black and white hear each other? Week 3 - Revolution & Constitution – the rise of the music business: theater, tavern, dancing assembly, and private home... how separated are the races, really? Week 4 - From Fort McHenry to blackface minstrelsy to Hiawatha commercialization of the American story and the rise of elite classicism Week 5 - 1850-1900 – assimilation through sheet music, opera and the concert stage Links to resources related to this topic:  www.colonialmusic.org - Our original website, now hosted by Mount Vernon.  Resources sections especially useful are the PACAN (newspaper) database, and the songster database www.musicalpassage.org - Pages from early 18th-c book including African music transcribed in 1688 in Jamaica; links to audio recordings on proper instruments, lots of other good background https://levysheetmusic.mse.jhu.edu/ More than 30,000 pieces of sheet music - amazing way to teach about technology, abolition, politics, gender issues, etc. over a LONG stretch of time. https://www.americanantiquarian.org/thomasballads/ - Hundreds of high-res pix of ballads printed in 1813 in Boston but covering lots of history back a half-century also; includes detailed descriptions, essays, and many now with audio recordings https://www.mym-media.org/portfolio.html - Scroll down to 4th screen, “A New Song - The Governor’s Rout” -the story of a recently discovered 235-year-old song from Annapolis, Maryland https://www.mountvernon.org/library/digitalhistory/digital-encyclopedia/article/francis-hopkinson/ - Scroll down for harpsichord demo, afterwards search for "Bullfinch" article about Martha's music book David K. Hildebrand (Ph.D. musicology, 1992) is a freelance performer, lecturer, recording artist, and faculty member of the musicology department at the Peabody Conservatory. His scholarly work and performances focus on early American music. For more than 20 years he served as the Director of The Colonial Music Institute. In 2012 David produced and narrated a one-hour national public radio special, “Music of the War of 1812” and served as the lead music historian for the nationally broadcast documentary film, "Anthem," the story behind “The Star-Spangled Banner.” He has written reviews and reader reports for The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, American Music, and Oxford University Press.  Johns Hopkins University Press published his book Musical Maryland in 2017. He has appeared on C-SPAN television, "History Detectives," NPR and BBC radio.  David was a Research Fellow at the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon, both during 2016-2017 and 2020-21. David and his wife Ginger Hildebrand have been performing together professionally since 1980, and they have recorded and produced seven full-length CD recordings. This is David’s second Hopkins at Home course, previously presenting “Musical Maryland - from Colonial Times through the mid-20th Century.” Follow Dr. Hildebrand on LinkedIn here.american-music-before-1900-the-n

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual March 10, March 10, WednesdayClimate Justice and Community-led Science-based Advocacy: Lessons from Line 3 Oil Pipeline Climate Change is the number one threat to global public health in the 21st century. The 2018 IPCC special report states that we need to cut our emissions by 45% by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050. However, we are already on track to extract and burn more fossil fuels than is compatible with the 2C scenario. The UN production gap report warns policymakers to not invest in new infrastructure projects as they will ensure  "lock-in" of carbon emissions for decades to come.  Despite robust evidence and intense public opposition, Minnesota greenlighted construction of an oil pipeline, Line 3, through Anishinaabe territory violating treaty rights. Line 3, similar in size to the Keystone XL, carries the same product-Canadian tar sands oil, and if built, will add CO2 emissions equal to that of 50 coal plants each year it is in operation. Line 3 is routed to cut through the headwaters of the Mississippi River, twice, risking an oil spill into drinking water for millions of Americans. Learn how tar sands oil pipelines threaten our health and climate, and how health and science professionals in Minnesota have been using their expertise and privilege to advocate against Line 3 in an Indigenous led movement (and what health professionals across the nation can do to stop Line 3.) Vishnu Laalitha Surapaneni, MD, MPH is an assistant professor of internal medicine and has a Master's of Public Health from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She currently practices as a hospitalist in Minneapolis and is a national board member of Physicians for Social Responsibility. In addition to providing direct patient care and teaching medical students, Surapaneni is an active climate justice advocate. She has provided testimony to the Minnesota legislature on numerous occasions, and as a science communicator, regularly speaks with media outlets about public health impacts of climate change.climate-justice

Region March 13, March 13, SaturdaySponsored by Hopkins Alumni  Join your fellow alumni and friends for an hour-long Zoom cook-along featuring one of the simplest and most delicious Venezuelan dishes: arepas! Led by Immigrant Food's Head of Kitchen, Mileyda Montezuma, and Director of Communications and Outreach, Téa Ivanovic, SAIS '16, learn how to make this authentic dish while discussing Venezuelan culture and learning about the mission and story of Washington, DC's first-ever cause-casual restaurant.   Immigrant Food is Washington, DC's first cause-casual restaurant that is a place for delicious food inspired by immigrants' gastronomic contributions, but also a platform for advocacy, change and community. Award-winning Chef Enrique Limardo's creative menu reflects America at its core: diverse, nourishing and welcoming. Immigrant Food donates parts of its space to five local immigrant-service NGOs for classes, trainings, and meetings. Their impact partnerships are central to their mission  as a cause-casual restaurant as they hope to raise public awareness of their partners' work and support them by channeling donors, volunteers and provide space to meet special needs. They are a restaurant that fuses gastronomy with advocacy ("gastroadvocacy" as they like to say) that has earned them a place on FastCompany's 2020 list of World Changing Ideas.   Mileyda "Mile" Montezuma was born in Barquisimeto Venezuela, and she leads the kitchen at Immigrant Food. She has been our award-winning Chef Enrique Limardo's right-hand woman for half a decade. She always thought she would end up in business and accounting, receiving a B.A. in Business Administration from Lisandro Alvarez University in Venezuela, but her love of gastronomy and her keen culinary skills quickly dragged her away. She enrolled in the prestigious Adelis Sisiruca Culinary School and was snatched up immediately as Chef of Café Azafrán in Baltimore, Maryland. She then joined award-winning Chef Enrique Limardo at Alma, the acclaimed Baltimore Latin fusion restaurant, as Chef de Partie. When Enrique became a partner in the Immigrant Food project, there was only one choice to head up the kitchen!arepa-masterclass

Her work with tribal, federal state and local leaders highlights not only past land uses, contaminants, cleanup and reuse associated with brownfields, but also ways reuse planning can further the creation of a healthier community as part of a brownfield assessment, cleanup and reuse planning process. Ann has a science and public health education background.

VirtualMarch 16, March 16, TuesdaySponsored by Lifelong Learning You got the job! Now what? Succeeding in your career requires more than book smarts and technical skills. It takes mastery of the unspoken rules—specific ways of doing things that managers expect but don’t explain and that top performers do but don’t realize. Knowing these rules will set you up for success—and help you navigate professional dilemmas. The problem is, these rules aren’t taught in school. They get passed down over the dinner table or from mentor to mentee, making for an unlevel playing field between insiders and outsiders. That is until Gorick Ng, a first-generation college student, former management consultant, and career adviser, interviewed 500+ professionals across industries and job types to understand the unspoken rules that underpin successful careers. In this webinar, Gorick will share some key insights and practical strategies that participants will be able to apply immediately to get further, faster in their careers. About our speaker: Gorick Ng is the author of the forthcoming book, The Unspoken Rules: Secrets to Starting Your Career Off Right. He is a career adviser specializing in coaching first-generation, low-income students.

Virtual March 16, March 16, TuesdaySponsored by Hopkins Alumni Join Hopkins alumni, family and friends for a beginner's lesson in origami, the Japanese art of paper-folding. During this one-hour virtual class, Taro’s Origami Studio staff will teach registrants about the history of origami, followed by a lesson in folding traditional shapes using nothing but paper from around the house. This is a family-friendly activity and attendees of all ages are welcome. Why Origami? Behavioral skills: Origami is an example of “schematic learning through repeatable actions”. To be successful, the student must watch closely and listen carefully to specific instructions and then carry them out with neatness and accuracy. For many, this way of learning engenders a patience that leads to pride in one’s work, the ability to focus energy, and increased self-esteem. Cooperative Learning: Origami is well-suited to working with large classrooms and in a multi-age setting. Paper folding tends to eliminate the status associated with age and often younger children can be in a position to teach the older ones. Many people report that children who do not “star” in other places are often quick to learn origami and help their classmates master the steps. The Bridge to Math: Transforming a flat piece of paper into a three-dimensional figure is a unique exercise in spatial reasoning. What happens when you unfold an origami model? Can you see the symmetry in the crease patterns? Manipulating paper with their hands helps children learn concepts that may otherwise seem abstract. In addition, paper folding allows students to create and manipulate basic geometric shapes such as squares, rectangles, and triangles. Cognitive Development: Through the actual folding, children use their hands to follow a specific set of steps in sequence, producing a visible result that is at once clever and pleasing. The steps must be performed in a prescribed order and with a fine attention to detail to yield a successful outcome – an important lesson not only in origami, but in life. Multi-cultural Awareness: Rooted in Asia, origami reflects the ingenuity and aesthetics of Japanese culture. By participating, students gain appreciation of a different culture, perhaps opening a doorway to further exploration and increased tolerance.origami-folding-for-beginners

Yet there is an undeniable movement abroad in the country toward its abolition of capital punishment. President Biden has promised that there will be no federal executions on his watch, and the Commonwealth of Virginia has become the first former Confederate State to ban judicial killings. How does the death penalty actually work in this country? How is it determined who is sentenced to die and who is not? What restrictions have the courts imposed on its use, and why? Is there a legitimate argument that the death penalty as currently applied is unconstitutional? Join this presentation with Professor Steven M. Schneebaum to explore the answers to these questions.  This livestream has been stamped by Common Question. Find out more here.  ABOUT THE PRESENTER Steven M. Schneebaum, Esq., Interim Director of the International Law and Organizations Program and Practitioner-in-Residence at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, has been a lawyer in private practice in Washington, DC, and a university teacher of international legal topics, for four decades.

He has taught international advocacy at SAIS since 1990, the law of the European Union from 2000 through 2007, and constitutional law since 2008. Professor Schneebaum’s professional focus has been on litigation and international law, representing clients in courts around the country (at both trial and appellate level) as well as in international and domestic arbitral proceedings. He also counsels clients on dispute avoidance through negotiation. His practice over the years has concentrated on such areas as international trade (including matters before the WTO), antitrust, constitutional law, contracts, legal malpractice, public and private international law, and judicial review of both government agency actions and arbitral awards.   He was educated at Yale University, from which he received a Bachelor of Arts degree magna cum laude, at Oberlin College (Master of Arts in philosophy), Oxford University (Bachelor and Master of Arts in jurisprudence, the former with First Class Honors), and George Washington University Law School (Master of Comparative Law).

April 07, April 7, WednesdaySponsored by Lifelong Learning Did you know that a scant fifteen percent of employees around the world are highly engaged in their work? Or that only one in five employees believe their opinions matter at work? We can change this...We need flat, fast, and open organizations that reward entrepreneurship and out-run change; that is a source of meaning and connection for employees and other stakeholders. The good news is that you don’t have to be the CEO to dismantle bureaucracy. Anyone can take the lead in building an organization that’s fit for human beings and fit for the future. Drawing from decades of research and their new WSJ Bestselling Book, Humanocracy, influential and iconoclastic business thinkers Gary Hamel and Michele Zanini will show you how to find the courage to challenge the status quo, how to rid yourself of bureaucratic habits and beliefs, and what you can learn from organizations that have made the jump to “humanocracy." About the author(s): Gary Hamel is the co-author of Humanocracy and The Future of Management. Hamel, one of the Management Labs co-founders, has worked with leading companies across the globe and is a dynamic and sought-after management speaker. Hamel has been on the faculty of the London Business School for more than 30 years.

ArtsEntertainmentMediaEntrepreneurship Affinity April 07, April 7, WednesdaySponsored by the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra and the Arts, Entertainment, Media, and Entrepreneurship Affinity In contrast to the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto of our last presentation, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring was blatantly––perhaps, even calculatedly––revolutionary. It depicts human sacrifice, if self-inflicted. From its set, costumes, choreography, and maybe, most of all, its music, this work screams for attention, and has never lacked it since its 1913 premiere in Paris.  We will watch and discuss a video of the full ballet.  This program will be presented on Zoom. A link will be shared with registrants in advance of the program. Don't miss our other programs in our series of Evenings with the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra! February 3rd - Star-Crossed: Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet and Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story  March 3rd - Exquisite Revolution: Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto  May 19th - Powerful Works of Our Time: Sanchez-Guitierrez's Girando Danzando and Dusman's What Remains Please, register for each program individually.

Click HERE to learn more about the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra. MEET OUR SPEAKERS Carlos Sanchez-Guitierrez The music of Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez has been described by the press as, “vigorously organized and highly visceral…neither eclectic nor post-modern nor owing allegiance to any passing fashion.” Born in Mexico City in 1964, he studied at the Peabody Conservatory, Yale University, Princeton, and Tanglewood under Henri Dutilleux, Jacob Druckman, and Martin Bresnick. He is Professor of Composition at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. Among the many awards he has received are the 2007 Barlow Prize, a Finalist Prize at the 2004 Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestral Composer Competition, as well as the 2003 Lee Ettelson Composition Award. He has also been honored in recent years with awards and fellowships from the Koussevitzky, Guggenheim, Fromm, Rockefeller, Camargo and Bogliasco Foundations. He was the 2000-01 American Academy of Arts and Letters Charles Ives Fellow and has received two B.M.I. Composition Awards, the Mozart Medal from the governments of Mexico and Austria, and a Fulbright Fellowship. Sanchez-Gutierrez’s work is performed and recorded frequently in the U.S, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Recently, Sanchez-Gutierrez has been Composer-in-Residence at several international festivals: Puentes Mexico/España, Chihuahua International Festival, Michoacan International New Music Festival, S.L.A.M. Festival in Seattle, as well as with the Binghamton Philharmonic (through a grant from the New York State Fund for Music.)

Linda Dusman Linda Dusman’s compositions and sonic art explore the richness of contemporary life, from the personal to the political. Her work has been awarded by the International Alliance for Women in Music, Meet the Composer, the Swiss Women’s Music Forum, the American Composers Forum, the International Electroacoustic Music Festival of Sao Paulo, Brazil, the Ucross Foundation, and the State of Maryland in 2004, 2006, and 2011 (in both the Music: Composition and the Visual Arts: Media categories). In 2009 she was honored as a Mid- Atlantic Arts Foundation Fellow for a residency at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. She was invited to serve as composer in residence at the New England Conservatory’s Summer Institute for Contemporary Piano in 2003. In the fall of 2006 Dr. Dusman was a Visiting Professor at the Conservatorio di musica “G. Nicolini” in Piacenza, Italy, and while there also lectured at the Conservatorio di musica “G. Verdi” in Milano. She recently received a Maryland Innovation Initiative grant for her development of Octava, a real-time program note system (octavaonline.com.) Linda Dusman’s recent works have been inspired by the landscape of Cape Ann, Massachusetts, where she vacations each summer on Folly Cove. Lake, Thunder was premiered at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC in 2015. Thundersnow was commissioned by the Italian Trio des Alpes in 2014, and premiered in Genoa, Italy that year. Her work for piccolo and alto flute An Unsubstantial Territory was recorded by the inHale Duo, and has received many performance throughout the United States and Europe. Piano Interiors was Dusman’s response to the 2012 Cape Ann Museum’s Soliloquy in Dogtown exhibition of works by Marsden Hartley. Her works are published by I Resound Press and Neuma Publications, and are recorded on the NEUMA, Capstone, and New Albany labels. As a sound artist, Dusman began experimenting with spatialized texts in the 1980s with a passage from Gertrude Stein’s The Making of Americans. Originally designed for quadraphonic tape, Becoming Becoming Gertrude explored the rhythms of Stein’s simple language in a dynamic evolution. Becoming Becoming Gertrude 2, available on Capstone Records, presents a stereo re-mix of the piece. Subsequent works include an interactive installation inspired by environmental decline using bird distress calls (and a voice was heard in Rama), and Mixed Messages, which uses telephone answering machine messages and an antique telephone switchboard as an interactive device. Mixed Messages was premiered at the University of New Mexico Museum of Art in 2005, and locations for other installations include the Pierogi 2000 gallery in New York, the alternative alternative exhibition on Wall Street, Dartmouth College, and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Magnificat 4: Ida Ida was released on the Sounding Out! DVD in 5.1 surround by Everglade Records in 2010. As a frequent contributor to the literature on contemporary music and performance, Dr. Dusman’s articles have appeared in the journals Link, Perspectives of New Music, and Interface, as well as a number of anthologies.
