Babson-Olin-Wellesley Concert Features Faculty and Student Works, Composer Dialogues

The Babson-Olin-Wellesley Collaboration will present “The Musical Process, from the Inside Out” featuring compositions by faculty and students from Olin and Wellesley Colleges, plus an interactive dialogue with performers and composers, culminating in a performance of each work. The concert will take place Tuesday, December 5, at 4 pm in the Milas Hall Mezzanine at Olin College of Engineering, 1000 Olin Way in Needham.

Musicians Gabriela Diaz (violin), David Russell (cello), and Lois Shapiro (piano) will perform “Dusk” from Martin Brody’s Book of Hours, “Lament” from Arlene Zallman’s Triquetra, as well as student compositions, including those by the Wired Ensemble, a first-year Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Foundation course at Olin.

Brody, the Catherine Mills Davis Professor of Music at Wellesley College, wrote his Book of Hours in 2003 for the Triple Helix Piano Trio. Arlene Zallman was Professor of Music at Wellesley until her untimely death in 2006. She wrote Triquetra in 1999, also for Triple Helix.

Shapiro is a member of the music performance faculty in piano at Wellesley; Russell is a lecturer in music, co-director of the Wellesley Chamber Music Society and a member of the music performance faculty in cello; Diaz is an instructor of violin at Wellesley and frequent performer of contemporary music.

 This is the second of two concerts supported by a Babson-Olin-Wellesley (BOW) Presidential Innovation Grant. The concert is free and open to the public.
