    INTIMATE LETTERS is a program that delves into music aimed at the heart – specifically, the magic and curse of love. Webern’s Langsamer Satz captures the simplicity and sweetness of love found while hiking in nature; a movement from Bach’s Art of Fugue musically captures the intimacy of two voices that move together in perfect counterpoint; and Janáček’s Quartet No.2 reminds us that love has the power to overtake us. The Parker Quartet also takes the opportunity to discuss its most recent release – a debut recording for ECM Records – and the importance of paying tribute to those who have guided us.

    In this evening of conversation, Karen Brooks Hopkins, president emerita, Brooklyn Academy of Music will discuss her 36 years at the world-famous cultural institution. A page-turning look behind the scenes of America’s oldest performing arts center, BAM … and Then It Hit Me is filled with stories and photographs of artists and icons—Princess Diana, Ingmar Bergman, Chuck Davis, David Byrne, LL Cool J, among others—along with hands-on practical advice on fundraising and leadership. The book is a paean to the glory of the arts and the evolution of Brooklyn: in Karen’s words, “the coolest neighborhood on the planet.” Through personal stories and raw reflections, tales of glamour and of grit, Karen looks back upon her career’s twists of fate, the total failures, and great triumphs along the way. Hopkins’s view of arts as a critical driver for the post-pandemic economy and her emphasis on diverse partnerships could be a blueprint for Boston and beyond. This evening’s conversation is moderated by Myriam Cyr, artistic director, Puntuate4 with a special introduction by Kelvin Dinkins, Jr., executive director, American Repertory Theater, (A.R.T.), Harvard University.

    A photo essay is a form of visual narrative that uses a series of images to tell a story. The best photo essays are informative yet go well beyond the simple facts -- person, place, thing. Instead, they take viewers on a journey, along the way evoking thoughts and emotions while fostering a sense of curiosity and greater understanding.

    For this Pulitzer and National Book Award-winning historian, also a proud Texas native and descendant of Texas slaves, the story of Juneteenth has special resonance. “On Juneteenth” presents the saga of a frontier defined as much by the slave plantation owner as the mythic cowboy, rancher, or oilman.
