  • The 19h Annual Student Symposium
    Thomas Commons
    9:00 a.m.
    The Cornell College Student Symposium provides a venue in which students may present their scholarly and creative work. Initiated in 1997, the symposium encourages wide community participation and attendance. It has become an annual event and an important part of the Cornell experience. Each student participant works closely with a faculty sponsor in choosing, preparing and presenting her/his work. The projects, many initiated by students, generally take several months to prepare. Presentations may be in oral, poster or performance/lecture format. Contact: Paul Waelchli

    7:30 p.m.
    "Pictures at an Exhibition": An adaptation told through puppetry, movement, and music. A collaboration between the Cornell Theatre Department and NYC's Puppet Kitchen. Composition by Modest Mussorgsky. Directed by Guest Artist Emily DeCola. The Cornell Theatre faculty and students will work with the award-winning Puppet Kitchen throughout the spring of 2015 in the creating and performing of this adaptation and expression of Modest Mussorgsky's composition "Pictures at an Exhibition," which was inspired by the paintings of architect and artist Viktor Hartmann. Mussorgsky described the piece as "seething," saying, "Sounds and ideas hang in the air, I am gulping and overeating, and can barely manage to scribble them on paper." Mussorgsky and Hartmann's vibrant journey will come to life in this theatrical event and artistic collaboration between students and professional artists where movement, music, and puppetry are brought together for an extraordinary experience of story-telling. The show runs April 24, 25 and May 1, 2 at 7:30 p.m. and April 26 at 2 p.m. in Kimmel Theatre. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $7 for seniors/students/youth. Free for faculty, staff, and students.
