Event Image CONCERT - "Holiday Pops" with the Lehman College and Community Band
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

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.

Jeannette Graulau Reading: The Underground Wealth of Nations
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Capitalist mining corporations - the earliest capitalist industries of feudal Europe - appeared in the Alps, Carpathians, Tuscany, Sardinia, and the Balkans from the 12th century onward. These private shareholding societies employed notaries, accountants, chief engineers, mine geometry specialists, cashiers, and ore carriers. Investors were the CEOs of mining corporations and Europe’s earliest capitalists. They paid the costs of continuous operation, and enjoyed the economic gains of mining - at the expense of poor free miners, serfs, women, and idle feudal lords. The Underground Wealth of Nations: On the Capitalist Origins of Silver Mining, A.D. 1150-1450 by Jeannette Graulau, Professor of Political Science at Lehman College, will be published soon by Yale University Press.
