The Cryogenic Renaissance Orchestra AKA: Greg Hopkins Nonet

All concerts are held at the Unitarian-Universalist Church
28 Mugford Street, Marblehead, Massachusetts  (handicapped accessible)

This mini big band is homage to three brilliant jazz nonets from the past and more. With a repertoire that includes several original arrangements from the influential “Birth of the Cool” recordings, this band might appear to be a mere recreation of the Davis nonet. Yet that legendary unit of the late ‘40s is only one of the models that have inspired this new unit.

Linda Przybyszewski: The Republic According To John Marsall Harlan

Thursday, July 31, 2014 - 11:00am

Justice John Marshall Harlan is considered one of the “great” Supreme Court Justices of the United States. Mainly because he dissented on the famous Plessy v. Ferguson case of 1896 which promoted the idea of “separate but equal.” He had a long tenure on the court and voted on some 14,000 cases. But he came from a slave holding family and opposed emancipation. How can we explain this apparent contrast in his attitudes to race?
