We spoke about the intersections in their work, the importance of telling women’s stories, and how they each approach current social issues through stories from the past. And, Orla read from her brilliant new book of short stories, Full of Grace!
We convinced composer-in-residence Yon to play from his orchestral suite on the piano, and writer-in-residence Angela Coraccio read a really moving and funny piece from her memoir, which tackled the parts of being a caregiver that we simply don’t talk about – but so many of us can relate to.
Friday June 21st 8pm
Composer-in-residence Yehonatan Chekhanovich will share the orchestral suite he has been working on all month.
Yon is a composer from Jerusalem currently studying at McGill in Montreal. He writes different types of pieces, from modern classic to smooth experimental music. He gets his inspiration from his many travels around the world which gives a unique and diverse experience.

Lori Kent is a New York City based visual artist and writer. Since 1995, she has worked primarily in beeswax, wood and other organic materials to create pastoral images, often reduced to elements such as grass, trees, sky, and field. Her works document cultivated, idealized or nonexistent nature. Each image is a singular proposition on paradise lost or reconfigured in her native South (New Orleans). The green expanses are depictions of human desire and culture building. Dr. Kent is a graduate of Columbia University and has worked as an artist, education researcher, and director of the arts education program at Hunter College, CUNY. Numerous solo and group exhibitions during her tenure in New York continue her conversation about reimagined nature.
