The Tune In Festival
11/6/21, 2:00 AM
The return of The Tune In Festival will feature more than 30 artists and ensembles over four days, coming together to pay respect to the time-honored tradition of music and poetry as sources of resilience, protest and inspiration. Curated by performance poet J. Ivy and pianist Lisa Kaplan in close collaboration with CAP UCLA Creative Advisor Kristy Edmunds.
For the festival, Jennifer created a music flm for experimental violin duo The Furies. Confronting humanity's impact on the climate and our place in the universe, The Furies's piece for the Tune In Festival is a meditation on the arc of history, from the primal dawn of civilization to an uncertain future.
Day 2: Friday, November 5 at 7PM PT
Eighth Blackbird: Singing in the Dead of Night by Julia Wolfe
The Furies: Did He Promise You Tomorrow

Diagenesis Full Circle: A Farewell Concert
Time & Location
In May of 2011, in Helena, MT, Diagenesis Duo gave their first ever concert, the start of a tour that took the duo across the northern part of the US with stops in St. Paul, Chicago, and Boston. Now, almost exactly eight years later, the duo will give their farewell concert to Helena, MT with a performance at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts.
For almost 12 years, Helena has been home to Heather Barnes, soprano for Diagenesis. This summer she and her family will begin a new adventure in Kunshan, China. A musical goodbye, this concert will bring Heather and the duo full circle, as they perform pieces from their debut concert and their recent CD release, Hands and Lips of Wind.
Described as “a radiant combination of text, music and performance, brilliantly realized and masterfully recorded" (Sequenza 21), Hands and Lips of Wind features works commissioned from Diagenesis’s close collaborators. Two of these pieces will be featured in the concert: the album’s title track, Hands and Lips of Wind, by Mischa Salkind-Pearl, and Harrison Birtwistle's exquisite miniatures, Twelve Settings of Lorine Niedecker. The concert will also include works by Pauline Oliveros, James Kallembach, John White, Sean Griffin, and Helena’s own Lynn Petersen, whose Four Songs set the poetry of Ed Noonan.
Admission: $15 general, $10 students
Capacity is limited to 35 attendees, so reservations are recommended
