The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents the program "Cultural Appropriation: Past and Present Voices" on Thursday, March 21, 2019.

For generations, artists, scholars, and cultural critics have explored the question: what are the implications of adapting the arts and culture of underrepresented communities? In this hybrid performance and discussion, engage with guest artists/experts in the history of American music, including spirituals and sorrow songs. Delve into the relationship between contemporary perspectives on the timely subject of cultural appropriation and those of such luminaries as W.E.B. DuBois, Mark Twain, Zora Neale Hurston, and Antonin Dvorák.

Performers and Speakers include:
• Dwight Bigler, associate professor and director of choral activities, School of Performing Arts
• Kevin Deas, bass-baritone
• Joseph Horowitz, executive director, PostClassical Ensemble
• Angel Gil-Ordóñez, music director and conductor, PostClassical Ensemble

Admission is free.

Co-presented with the Lifelong Learning Institute at Virginia Tech
