Join the Duke New Music Ensemble this weekend for an encore performance of Old Film | New Music. The program features works by six Duke composers written to accompany archival film footage from Duke's David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
Featured composers include David Kirkland Garner, Jamie Keesecker, Vladimir Smirnov, Benito Crawford, D. Edward Davis, and Kenneth David Stewart.
The program includes footage from 1960s Hawaii and Thailand by Morris and Dorothy Margolin; images of Spindale, North Carolina, in 1937 by H. Lee Waters; Duke life and Duke Gardens in the 1940s; and protest film from Duke's 1969 Allen Building sit-in and contemporary times.
Admission is free. The Duke New Music Ensemble (dnme) is Duke's student-run collective of composers and musicians dedicated to the performance of new contemporary classical music.
