Weekly Informal Gallery Talks with Photographer Jim Blair

Middlebury College Museum of Art

For more than thirty-five years, Jim Blair was one of the people who millions of National Geographic readers counted on each month to give them a sense of the greater world. His exhibition Being There: Photographs by James P. Blair documents the breadth of his career, and gives a sense of his dexterity, determination, and breadth of vision. His best images have become part of our visual lexicon and remind us that the world is a varied and stimulating place, sometimes breathtaking in its beauty and at other times heartbreaking in its degradation, but always informative. Join him each Friday. Free

Weirdos, Witches, and Warriors: An Evening of German Ballads Stephan Boving, Tenor, and Stefan Rütter, Piano

Mahaney Arts Center, Robison Hall

The German School presents this voice recital by faculty in the Language Schools’ German for Singers program. Seated on a high rock above the river Rhine, the “Lorelei” and her seductive song cause the boatmen below to perish; Heinrich Heine’s poem from 1824 has immortalized the saga of the beautiful witch for classical literature. Clara Schumann’s dramatic musical adaptation of the famous text is just one of many gauntly yet delightful and suspense-filled ballads making up this evening of song. The public is welcome at this Language Schools performance, but please help our students respect the Language Pledge by limiting the speaking of English at the event.  Free
