About the Event
The Julia Perry Centenary Celebration and Festival presented by Experiential Orchestra and Videmus brings Julia Perry’s legacy to the next generation, through side-by-side rehearsals and readings with the Experiential Orchestra led by Music Director James Blachly and students from three New York City conservatories.
In addition to rehearsing with violin soloist Curtis Stewart, students will have the opportunity to learn from Stewart and Fredara Hadley, Professor of Ethnomusicology at The Juilliard School, about their personal relationship with Perry’s music. Jennifer Arnold, violist and antiracism advocate, will lead additional activities.
These rehearsals and readings are open only to the participating students and other festival participants.
