Ola Belle Reed: I’ve Endured

Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents Ola Belle Reed: I've Endured, an exhibition that explores the life and work of nationally recognized bluegrass musician Ola Belle Reed, contextualizing her achievements within a history of migration from rural Appalachia north in the twentieth century. With a voice born in the mountains and shaped by the hard times she lived and saw, Reed (1916–2002) established herself as a significant and influential banjo picker, singer, and songwriter of old-time mountain music.

Stories Told Small

Black Box Theatre

UMBC Theatre presents Stories Told Small, directed by Colette Searls and Nate Sinnott and presented in the Black Box Theatre. Written and directed by UMBC theatre students, Stories Told Small packs big meaning into miniature dramas, using puppetry and all manner of tiny objects to spin novel tales. Stories spring from performers’ minds, presented in an original variety show!

UMBC Gamelan Ensemble

The Music Box

The Department of Music presents the UMBC Gamelan Ensemble under the direction of Gina Beck. The ensemble performs on a central Javanese gamelan (a gong-chime orchestra of Indonesia), and also on a Balinese gamelan angklung (one of many types of gong-chime orchestras from the island of Bali, Indonesia).

An Early Modern Salon

Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall

This quasi-theatrical event, presented by UMBC's Collegium Musicum and Medieval and Early Modern Studies Minor, puts the audience and the performers in conversation and in close proximity, as would have occurred during a meeting of a musical society in seventeenth-century Tuscany.
