Spark a new season!
Visions and Voices will kick off the year with our annual arts extravaganza featuring music, dance, theatre and spoken word! World-renowned DJs Urban Assault (aka Faust and Shortee) will amp up the crowd with an electrifying pre-show. The high-energy evening continues with Lula Washington Dance Theatre, whose blend of African, ballet and street dance is irresistibly inspiring. Consider life afresh via socially conscious spoken word by Rudy Francisco, Javon Johnson and Terisa Tinei Siagatonu. The virtuosic playing of classical guitarist Vladimir Gorbach will find a fascinating counterpoint in an uproarious performance by the insightful theatre artist Adelina Anthony. And donít miss the catchy alternative pop of Carlton at a lively post-show reception. The event will also include a welcome by USC Provost Elizabeth Garrett and a presentation by USC cinematic arts professor Tara McPherson. Attendees will receive free Visions and Voices T-shirts and bags! Join us on Thursday, August 21, at 5:30 p.m. in Bovard Auditorium. For more info, click here.

The 1927 Mississippi River Flood displaced thousands of sharecroppers, who left plantations and migrated to northern cities. Their migration fueled the evolution of the blues, R&B, rock and jazz—a story told with archival footage and a searing original soundtrack in The Great Flood, a film by Bill Morrison and composer/guitarist Bill Frisell.
