CU Faculty Tuesdays: Violin to Harpsichord
Tuesday, November 13, 7:30 p.m.
Grusin Music Hall
It's impossible to imagine the musical evolution from the Baroque to classical eras without the influence of Johann Sebastian Bach, but many of the Old Wig's favorite compositions have been lost to time. Among Bach's nearly lost works is a version of the Chaconne for Solo Violin adapted for the harpsichord — Bach specialized in creating protean music that sounds equally lovely on a wide array of instruments — but thanks to a reconstructed version compiled by University of Colorado Baroque Music Performance Chair and Professor of Harpsichord Robert Hill, Boulderites can hear the rarely performed masterpiece for themselves. Join Hill at his debut solo recital, or visit the CU Faculty events calendar to watch a live stream of the performance.
Thursday, November 15, 4 to 5 p.m.

Amongst the Liberal Elite
Thursday, November 15
Tattered Cover LoDo
Whoever said "Getting woke is easy" is really letting their privilege show. Adapted from a gently satirical McSweeney's column, Elly Lonon's Amongst the Liberal Elite follows a couple of urbane kombucha drinkers on a sojourn through Trump country fraught with uncomfortable realizations and underwhelming tourist traps. Lonon, a self-proclaimed "Writer of Wrongs," is incisively funny on the page, but she's also a charming public speaker whose book tour alights upon the Tattered Cover's LoDo location this week, for a signing and discussion led by Jessica Ziegler, author of Science of Parenthood.
