> The Beinecke 's 50th anniversary events that will be taking place this coming weekend. Of special note are the three poetry-related events: the performance of La Prose; the sound installation which will feature Beinecke poets' readings intertwined with sounds and archival audio; and the gala concert which will include a suite of art songs based on poetry in the Beinecke's collections.
> Umberto Eco
> Friday October 18, 5pm
> Yale University Art Gallery, 1111 Chapel St., New Haven
> Eco should have a lot to say in his talk about: “The Library as a Model for Culture: Preserving, Filtering, Deleting and Recovering”.
> La Prose du Transsibérien
> A musical setting of Blaise Cendrars’ epic poem by Matthew Suttor.
> English translation by Timothy Young
> Saturday October 19, 1pm
> Off Broadway Theater, 41 Broadway, New Haven, CT 06511
> The beautiful book by Cendrars and Delaunay should be familiar to many of us by now. It has been displayed, taught, and made into a facsimile edition. This will be the Yale premiere of the work and it involves some amazing talent: The Jasper String Quartet; Max Gordon Moore, Ashley Smith, and
> a group of young designers who studied at the Yale School of Drama.
> The running time will be about 35 minutes.
> Saturday October 19, 10am-4pm
> Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library
> This is a selection of audio recordings and music from Beinecke's collections that Matthew Suttor collaged into a 20 minute loop of voices and sounds that will fill the mezzanine of the library for the day on Saturday.
> Gala Concert
> Saturday October 19, 5:30pm
> Sprague Memorial Hall, 470 College Street
> This concert celebrates some wonderful pieces of manuscript music in the Beinecke's collections.
