QUEER MOVEMENT

with Lauren Znachko

1st Wednesday of every month | 7:00pm | FREE

Our queer yoga class is meant to provide safer space for queer and trans folks to gather together and move our bodies. The guidance and facilitation is trauma informed with the intention to decenter cis-het notions of bodies, language, and togetherness. Movement will be gentle and by invitation, modifications and rest will be offered and encouraged, hands on guidance is based on explicit consent, which is never assumed.

Wear whatever feels most comfortable for you. If your movement is limited for whatever reason, we will make accommodations so that you are able to feel at ease and a part of the group. If you have questions, concerns, or would like to make requests ahead of time, please feel free to email us.

Pre-registration is recommended.

Jun 6 @ 10:00 am – 3:15 pm
Portland Bach Experience: OLLI Learning Series: Understanding Two Worlds @ University of Southern Maine – Portland Campus | Portland | Maine | United States

Portland Bach Experience – June 2024 Festival

Bach is back, June 6-16, 2024! Join us for world-class live music that bridges generations, connects friends, and strengthens communities. Whether you enjoy full orchestral performances, intimate salons in art galleries, public sing-alongs, outdoor parties, or hands-on events for children, there’s something for everyone to love at the Portland Bach Experience.

Right to left or left to right? Composers of the Jewish Italian Renaissance had to navigate between cultures, classes, and languages. In this series, which features the earliest published music in Hebrew, we will explore how the arts were used during the Italian Renaissance to promote understanding and appreciation between two distinct cultures. “Harmonizing Two Worlds” is a three-class intensive led by Dr. Emily Isaacson, artistic director of Classical Uprising, Dr. Vivian Montgomery, professor of historical performance at Longy School of Music of Bard College, and Louis Miller, Cartographic Reference and Teaching Librarian at Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education.

Schedule

  • Thursday, June 6

    • Session 1: 10:00-11:30 a.m. – USM Wishcamper Rm 133

    • Session 2: 1:30-3:15 p.m. – Osher Map Library

  • Thursday, June 13

    • Session 3: 12:30-1:30 p.m. – USM Wishcamper Rm 133

Session 1: Introduction

When Isabella d’Este of Ferrara married Francesco Gonzaga of Mantua, it was like a Kennedy marrying a Bush. Together, they turned Mantua into the seat of royal luxury and the artistic zenith of Europe. Learn about the history, politics, and artwork of the Mantuan court, and why, despite religious segregation, Jewish artists thrived.

Session 2: Judaica

Co-hosted by the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education, see how maps, artwork, and Judaica track the societal and artistic developments of the Italian Renaissance.

Session 3: Right to left or left to right?

How do you set Hebrew to music when Hebrew reads right to left and music reads left to right?  Award-winning harpsichordist and scholar Dr. Vivian Montgomery examines  the logistical and artistic complexities of “Songs of Solomon” by Salomone Rossi (1570-1630), the earliest known published collection of liturgical music in Hebrew.

Participation in this series is free. To register, call the OLLI office at 207-780-4406. Attendance is limited to 50 participants for the three-part workshops (you must register for all three). Hosted in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education.

This series leads up to the Portland Bach Experience salon Eudaimonia: Harmonizing Two Worlds, on Thursday, June 13, 2024 at 7:00 p.m. at Etz Chaim Synagogue. Seminar participants will receive a discount code to purchase tickets for the salon.
