Event Description

Seth Parker Woods, artist-in-residence at the University of Chicago, has been called “a cellist of power and grace” who possesses a “mature artistry and willingness to go to the brink” by The Guardian. In this streaming performance, Woods reflects on the unabashed celebration of identities, acts of translation, the Great Migration, and the embodied Black and Brown experience in America, through the music of Fredrick Gifford, Nathalie Joachim, Monty Adkins, and Alvin Singleton.
