Day of the Dead is originally a Mexican holiday but it is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, flowers, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts. Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves.

Lisa Hearne, professor of music, and Joyce Strabala, pianist, will present a faculty recital “Words (and Music)” on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in Ringer Recital Studio, Armstrong Hall. Featured collaborator is clarinetist R. Joseph Dieker, Dean of the College. The recital features songs based on poetry by prominent writers such as Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain, and Dana Gioia, former chair of the National Endowment for the Arts. Gioia’s poem, “The Heart of the Matter,” set to music by music theatre composer Jimmy Roberts (“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”) is a duet for clarinet and soprano, and evokes a film noir atmosphere, featuring virtuosic clarinet passages and a bluesy vocal line. Works by Gordon Myers, a nationally recognized singer, teacher, and composer, mark the 75th anniversary of his graduation from Cornell College in 1941. “They Said,” is based on pithy, humorous sayings from famous personalities. Also featured is Leonard Bernstein’s “La Bonne Cuisine,” four short songs based on recipes of exotic dishes. This event is open to public and admission is free.
