For the Future

Co-Sponsored by RIT Performing Arts

The modern chamber quintet fivebyfive, The Landmark Society of Western New York and The Susan B. Anthony Neighborhood Association present the virtual program For the Future: The Susan B. Anthony Historic District (music, art and action), on Sunday November 8 at 2PM.

This event will feature the world premiere of music composed for the event by Mina Esary in collaboration with the ROCmusic students, performed by fivebyfive and the students. This new work will be the catalyst for a community talk-back about the complicated dimensions of the suffrage movement: the history of the movement, who was included, who was excluded, and what work is still needed.

Community talk-back panelists include:
Jean Elisabeth Pedersen - Associate Professor of History at the Eastman School of Music and the University of Rochester
Deborah Hughes - President and CEO of the Susan B. Anthony Museum and House
Cona Marshall - Assistant Professor in Religious Studies and African and African American Studies at the University of Rochester
Kathryn Murano Santos - Senior Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Rochester Museum and Science Center

Sponsored by a Humanities New York Action Grant with support from Rochester Institute of Technology Performing Arts.
