February 17-19, 2016
From February 17-19, 2016, Philip Glass AB’56, will be on campus as a Presidential Arts Fellow at the University of Chicago. As the University prepares to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of our founding we are thrilled to highlight his many important contributions to the arts as one of our most successful arts alumni. As part of his return to campus, the Logan Center is partnering with University of Chicago Presents (UCP) to present The Complete Piano Etudes by Philip Glass as part of a three day residency where he will also interact with our students, have conversations with our faculty on topics of mutual interest, and allow us to celebrate his incredible work with the arts community in Chicago.
In addition to the performance of The Complete Piano Etudes in Mandel Hall with UCP, Mr. Glass will be participating in a conversation with Department of Music faculty member Bethold Hockner after the screening of the award wining film Mishima, for which he did the soundtrack. He will also do a public talk in the Logan Center performance hall, in conversation with Augusta Read Thomas regarding artistic collaboration.
These large public events will also be accompanied by class visits with students in the Composition program in the Department of Music, and a lunch with other students and faculty across campus to engage in topics around their work as well as what he is currently working on.
