A film screening and discussion featuring Renée Baker, accomplished Chicago composer and founding director of the Chicago Modern Orchestra Project, will take place at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 14, 2018, in the Knight Auditorium at the Spurlock Museum as part of the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music’s American Music Month programming.

 

Baker’s talk, “Exploring the Unspoken Silences that Define Us as Individuals and Communities, ” will cover race and identity issues as they have been reflected in early silent movies; the use of music and the performing arts to reflect these issues both past and present;  and how the use of the performing, cinema, and literary arts can be used to help start thoughtful conversations with today’s audiences about the unspoken silences of race and identity that we still currently wrestle with.
