    1. SeptemberFEST: Moving Image @ Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall
      8:00 pm – 11:30 pm

      Longy School of Music Announces Program for
      SeptemberFest 2014
      Moving Image – Music Inspiring Images Inspiring Music
      September 26–27, 2014
      Cambridge, MA: The Longy School of Music of Bard College kicks off the fall season with SeptemberFest 2014: Moving Image featuring dance, improvised music, poetry, animation and scenes from some of the most iconic movies of the 20th century. Over 30 Longy students, faculty, and guest artists will participate in this feast for the senses that will include works by Bach, Bartok and Richard Strauss. All events will be held in Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall on Longy’s Cambridge campus. Admission is free, but reservations are required and can be obtained at: www.longy.edu/septemberfest

      “Septemberfest is Longy’s annual jump start to the fall concert season,” said Wayman Chin, Dean of the Conservatory and visionary behind Septemberfest. “This year’s Septemberfest is the most unusual ever. We will explore how music interacts, converges, and converses with the other arts. Every form of art creates an image — visual, sonic, moving, spoken — and we hope our programs will offer our audiences a broader artistic experience.”

      Saturday, September 27, 3PM – Improvisation and Film: Improvised accompaniments to some of the 20th century’s most iconic films.
      Summertime (David Lean, 1955) American spinster Jane Hudson (Katharine Hepburn) makes her first trip to Europe, in search of an epiphany. As Jane begins to explore Venice, the city’s splendor and exuberance form a bittersweet backdrop to her loneliness and vulnerability.
      Berlin: Symphony of a Great City (Walter Ruttman, 1927) In this definitive example of ‘pure cinema,” Walter Ruttman captures the vibrancy, vitality and tensions of a great city between the great wars—a city that sadly no longer exists.
      Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock, 1958) A high-powered businessman, fearful that his wife has become possessed by a ghost, hires private detective John “Scotty” Ferguson (James Stewart) to follow her. Here, Scotty sees the beautiful Madeleine (Kim Novak) for the first time. As he begins to trail her through the winding streets of San Francisco, we witness fascination that soon becomes shattering obsession.
