Virtual Culture This Weekend

We’ve got some weekend livestreams to keep you informed and entertained—across talks, lectures, and performances (with a real life event thrown in as well).

Friday, September 25

Glory in the treasures of Corinth as The National Arts Club shines a light on Greek Corinth, its destruction by Romans in 146 B.C.E., and the Roman colony founded by Julius Caesar a century later.

Join Robin Rose, writer, teacher, herbalist, and green witch, as she pays a virtual visit to the New York Open Center to share the power and healing properties of trees

Head out to Green-Wood Cemetery for an in person quartet performance by The Harlem Chamber Players, performing music by George Walker and Florence Price atop the Hill of Graves  (Walker’s piece includes his profound Lyric – originally titled Lament – which was written in memory of his grandmother, who had been a slave.)
