Wednesdays at the Center :: Round Table / Conversation with the Bad Plus Jazz Trio
Series organized by the John Hope Franklin Center & the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, with support from the FHI. This individual program is sponsored by Duke Performances, the Music Department, and the Vice Provost for the Arts.
NOTE: The FHI has moved to the Smith Warehouse - but the Wednesday at the Center series will continue to take place in Room 240, John Hope Franklin Center, 2204 Erwin Road.
Come to this conversation with the innovative jazz trio The Bad Plus, who will be in town for a residency at Duke prior to their late-March World Premiere of their arrangement of Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring.” The Bad Plus will discuss Stravinsky’s score and their approach to the arrangement of the piece.
Wednesdays at the Center (WATC) is a topical weekly noontime series in which scholars, artists, journalists, and others speak informally about their work in conversation with the audience. The series is jointly organized and presented by the John Hope Franklin Center and, beginning Spring 2011, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies - with support from the Franklin Humanities Institute. All events in the series are free and open to the public. A light lunch is served - no reservations are necessary.
The Franklin Center is located at 2204 Erwin Road, on the corner of Erwin and Trent. Vouchers to cover parking costs in the Duke Medical Center parking decks - #2 and #3 in this map - are provided.
