Juilliard at the Oscars

“There’s one place where all the people with the greatest potential are gathered—one place—and that’s the graveyard,” Oscar-winner Viola Davis said.

Viola Davis, Group 22, won best supporting actress for her performance in Fences, and host Jimmy Kimmell (rightly) quipped that she deserved an Emmy for her acceptance speech. “There’s one place where all the people with the greatest potential are gathered—one place—and that’s the graveyard,” Davis said. Listen to her speech below.

Davis’s acceptance speech also included a shoutout to Fences castmate Stephen McKinley Henderson, member of Group 1 and a master class instructor.

Another nominee was pre-college alum Nicholas Britell, for his work on the score of Moonlight.

Another winner, Tarell Alvin McCraney (best picture winner Moonlight’s adapted screenplay writer), was once rejected by Juilliard.

Juilliard Teach-in on the ‘Muslim Ban’

Tomorrow (Tuesday) a teach-in concerning Trump’s travel ban will occur at 12:00 pm in the Writing Center on the 5th floor. A teach-in is an interactive seminar, often focused on matters of current events or social importance. Typically, like a sit-in, lie-in or die-in, teach-ins have no set end time.  The first teach-in occurred in 1965 at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and centered around United States’ involvement in Vietnam. 

Professor Aaron Jaffe has organized the event, which is scheduled to end at 1:00 pm. According to Professor Jaffe, other participants include Professors Andersen, Lioi, Mercier, Sanchez, and Wilson; and Assistant Dean of International Advisement Cory Owen. 

“This teach-in is important because the Juilliard community is essentially international and diverse,” wrote Professor Jaffe in an email. “Domestic and International students should be aware of U.S. government’s policies and how discourses of safety or security are frequently used to exclude and harm minorities. The teach-in will include brief talks on the nature of executive orders, histories of exclusion, cultural analysis, politics of resistance, and what the ‘Muslim ban’ means for the Juilliard community.”

Pizza will be served, and the event qualifies for Foundations credit. 

Percussion Buzzfeed Quiz. Concert Monday, 7:30 pm.

Joe Bricker created the quiz. “I just wanted to to get people interested in our concert with a fun advertisement, Bricker said. “Percussion music doesn’t often get seen a lot so when we perform these really crucial works we try to get as many people out to the show as possible.”

We are individual alumni and current community members of the Juilliard School in New York. Whether or not we voted for the president-elect, we come together now to reject particular dangerous elements that arose during his campaign, elements which stand in opposition to our core values. We are taking this opportunity to reaffirm those values and to rededicate ourselves to our personal and collective missions.

As students of and makers of art, we understand the power and sacredness of the individual voice. We will fight to empower immigrants and their descendants, LGBTQ individuals, people of color, victims of sexual assault and women. We will defend the rights of each citizen for safety and free expression. Black lives matter to us. We understand the beauty and necessity of a chorus of voices, so we will seek out differing viewpoints and strive to understand those we seem furthest from.

We understand how volatile the history of the arts has been. When we sing songs of the conquerors or co-opted songs of the oppressed, we will strive to understand the context of what we are doing.

As citizens of the inescapable globe, we reject fear of foreigners and ignorance of science. We will welcome collaboration with Muslim performers. We will do our best to make decisions at the personal level that do not add to the physical deterioration of Earth. Where there is war, we will bring art. Where there is hate, we will bring love.

We will keep watch through this administration and beyond, and sound our alarm bells each time a step is taken that brings us closer to tyranny or genocide. From the community symphony to the global film market, we know that there is an opportunity for example of leadership at every stage of our careers and lives.

At and after Juilliard, in our rehearsals, negotiations, classes, gigs and interviews, we will embrace the principals of open collaboration and rigorous citizenship. We will ask ourselves whether our actions stand in harmony with our core values. We will speak out when others are oppressed. We will question our own stances and actions. When in doubt, we will listen.

We, the undersigned, stand united against hate, fear and fascism, and encourage our governments and our shared institution to do the same.
