First Friday Lunch with Jim Steichen, PhD Candidate in Music

First Friday Lunch with Jim Steichen, PhD Candidate in Music


George Balanchine
 


On Friday, March 1st, 2013, PA3 welcomed Jim Steichen to the monthly First Friday luncheon at the Nassau Club.  Jim is working on his dissertation which focuses on George Balanchine (at left).







Dancer from 'Alma Mater'
Who knew that Princeton makes an appearance in a Balanchine work?!  Those who attended lunch now know about Alma Mater,a ballet inspired by Edward Warburg's witty satire of an Ivy League football game, set at the Yale Bowl.  






Balanchine's Serenade - early production






















Above and below, respectively, are early and later productions of Balanchine's Serenade, set to the music of Tschaikovsky.

As usual, there was a lively discussion while enjoying the Nassau Club's buffet luncheon. Thank you Jim for joining us to talk about your work!
