Abbie Conant Lecture and Masterclass


126 Cogswell Hall The Lively Arts

Join us for Abbie Conant's lecture and masterclass, 2 PM in 126 Cogswell Hall. Working in tandem with composer/author William Osborne, Ms. Conant blends her unique talents as trombonist, vocalist, and actor to create a theatrical experience that speaks to contemporary social issues. Her performances have been critically acclaimed throughout the world.

The German newspaper Suddeutche Zeitung reports:
"An utterly entertaining evening… This fabulous Abbie Conant… After seeing and hearing the musician Abbie Conant, one gets an idea of what many actresses are painfully lacking: namely, a musically schooled sensitivity to the pitch inflections and flexibility of the voice, that allows her to present an astoundingly varied rhythmic and expressive performance, and all with a natural ease one seldom finds. […] An excellent, versatile, talented performance artist, and an outstanding trombonist as well.” This free performance is one not to be missed.
