PROF. GURMINDER BHOGAL - CLASS OF 1960 LECTURE
Williamstown, 4:15 p.m.
Prof. Gurminder Kaur Bhogal, Catherine Mills Davis Associate Professor of Music at Wellesley College, gives a Class of 1960 Lecture titled “Claude Debussy’s Clair de Lune: From Moonlight to Stardom” for the Williams College Department of Music.  In celebration of the centenary of Claude Debussy’s death in 1918, this lecture will explore how Clair de Lune, a piece for which the French composer had little regard, has managed to become one of his best-known compositions. While examining Clair de Lune‘s connections to the art and poetry of its milieu, Gurminder Bhogal will draw attention to how this piece continues to be re-imagined across genres and media including film, popular music, and video games.   https://events.williams.edu/event/prof-gurminder-bhogal-class-of-1960-lecture/   Free Room 30 Bernhard Music Center, 54 Chapin Drive, Williams College, Williamstown, MA @ 4:15 p.m.

DOVER STRING QUARTET - VISITING ARTIST SERIES
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
Dover Quartet begins with Beethoven’s Quartet in C Minor, op. 18, No. 4. They follow with Mason Bates “From Amber Frozen.” After an intermission Dover Quartet presents Tchaikovsky’s Quartet in E-flat Minor, op. 30. Members of the group are Joel Link and Bryan Lee, violins; Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt, viola; and Camden Shaw, cello. The phenomenal Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition. Recently named the Cleveland Quartet Award winner, and awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Dover has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The Quartet’s rise from up-and-coming young ensemble to occupying a spot at the top of their field has been “practically meteoric” (Strings). With its burnished warmth, incisive rhythms, and natural phrasing, the Quartet’s distinctive sound has helped confirm its status as “the young American string quartet of the moment” (The New Yorker). The Quartet serves as the quartet-in-residence for the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University.  https://events.williams.edu/event/dover-string-quartet-visiting-artist-series/ Free Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall Bernhard Music Center, 54 Chapin Drive, Williams College, Williamstown, MA @ 8:00 p.m.
