2:00 PM - 4:00 PM CONCERT - "Holiday Pops" with the Lehman College and Community Band
The Lehman College & Community Band will celebrate the holiday season with “Holiday Pops,” a concert featuring a mix of holiday music and classics for wind band.

Led by Professor Alan Hollander of the Music Department, the ensemble will perform a wide range of works, including perennial holiday favorites Christmas Festival and Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson, another sleigh ride, “Troika” from the Lieutenant Kije Suite by Prokofiev, and a medley of Hanukah tunes entitled Festive Sounds of Hanukah.

Also featured will be a slice of Americana: Shuffleton’s Barbershop by Hayato Hirose inspired by the eponymous Norman Rockwell painting, the timeless Greensleeves arranged by prolific American composer Alfred Reed, “The Nativity” from Norman Dello Joio’s Scenes from the Louvre, and Victor Herbert’s ever popular March of the Wooden Soldiers.

Rounding out the program will be a humorous medley by David Lovrien entitled Minor Alterations: Christmas Through the Looking Glass, a game of musical hide-and-seek for the audience, in which familiar Christmas carols are transposed from major to minor keys then disguised and layered to create something new and inventive.

Veteran's Day
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM The Dominican Racial Imaginary
The Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies will host a special presentation and discussion of "The Dominican Racial Imaginary" with Professor Milagros Ricourt. In "The Dominican Racial Imaginary," Dr. Ricourt asks: Why do so many Dominicans deny the African components of their DNA, culture, and history? 

Ricourt uncovers a complex and often contradictory Dominican racial imaginary. Through fieldwork at the Dominican-Haitian border, she provides a firsthand narrative of how Dominicans are resisting the official account of their national identity, and instead embracing the African influence that has always been part of their cultural heritage. This book expands our understanding of how national and racial imaginaries develop, why they persist, and how they might be subverted.
