Professional Activities

On Sunday, May 22, 2011, at 3 p.m., The North/South Chamber Orchestra will perform works by four Latin American composers living in the U.S., including Professor José Lezcano, Music. The concert will be held at the auditorium of Christ and St. Stephen’s Church (120 West 69th St.) in New York City. Admission is free and no tickets are necessary. Lezcano will be the featured soloist in the first performance of his newly minted Concierto Cubanero. He will be accompanied by the North/South Chamber Orchestra led by its founder, Max Lifchitz. His recently completed concerto is in two movements and recalls sounds often heard in such popular genres as Cha-cha-cha and Bolero. In addition to Lezcano’s piece, the program will also feature premieres of works by Carlos Rausch (from Argentina), William Ortiz (from Puerto Rico), and Max Lifchitz (from Mexico). All of the composers will be in attendance and will introduce their works to the public.

Dr. Susan Wade, History, has received a Summer/Short-Term Research Publication Grant from the American Association of University Women. Susan’s project is to finalize work on a book manuscript titled “The Illumination of the Eye and the Vision of the Soul: Monastic Perspectives on Sight and Blindness from the Sixth to the Eleventh Centuries,” which examines the importance of medieval discourses of visuality in the formulation and gendering of monastic identity in the early to central Middle Ages.
