Kenia at Backstage Bar at Theater Square @ Backstage Bar at Theater Square
Dec 5 @ 5:00 pm

Kenia has been characterized by many as one of the most excitingly unique performers you can hear today. Born in the exotic city of Rio de Janeiro, she reflects the pulse and intensity of her native Brazil through diversified style. Her deep tone and excellent choice of repertoire have been cited by Dana Black, of the Daily News, New York, as a “sure sign of expertise”. Jazztimes magazine has described her as “a wonderfully expressive vocal instrument that throbs with sultry intensity, it’s low key, yet ultra bright”. Kenia will be featured during the month of April, National Jazz Appreciation Month, singing the songs of great Brazilian composers, Jobim, Gil and many others

Show and Tell: This Time It’s Personal @ College of Fine Arts | Pittsburgh | Pennsylvania | United States

Come and join the School of Art Class of 2021+, as we celebrate the most personal of all foundation courses – Concept Studio I: The Self and The Human Being.

Over the course of the semester, students have poured their hopes, their fears, their blubbering tears and (probably very little) blood into an array of projects ranging from video diaries to zines. All centered around one question: what is the self, really? And on December 9th, they will unveil their best answers to that question through works in a variety of media including collaborative performance, video, virtual reality, video games, 2D media, sculpture, and more. Their exhibition will run in the Frame Gallery, and be available to view starting at an opening reception on December 9th from 5pm-8pm.
