Exhibit: The Longing Ritual

Kipp Gallery, First Floor Sprowls Hall

Throughout his career, the concept of synthesis has been central to Turri’s work. The source material for “The Longing Ritual” series is culled from cyclical rituals: walking through Frick Park, the Homewood Cemetery, the neighborhoods of Squirrel Hill, and Point Breeze where he often records (through photography) the memorable visual moments that he experiences with regularity. The paintings are not traditional landscape paintings; the work is meant to reflect the ever-pervasive presence of the screen and the digital device and its intrusion on the ability for real experience.

Concert: The Swingles

Gorell Recital Hall, Second Floor Sutton Hall

What better way to get into the holiday spirit than with songs of good cheer brought to you by The Swingles? The unmistakable sound of The Swingles has long been associated with Christmas, and audiences can look forward to music from five decades of holiday releases including their 2015 album ‘Yule Songs Vol. II’. Alongside these seasonal favorites, the program includes select pieces from the group’s year-round touring repertoire. Program to include classic carols, beloved Christmas songs, and more.

For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the five-time Grammy® winners since they first made waves in the 1960s. At a time when a cappella music is more popular than ever, The Swingles are recognized as masters of their craft.
