Pursuit of Peace
August 24 @ 5:00 pm
The Tanglewood Learning Institute presents The Big Idea: Daniel Shapiro, a world-renowned expert on negotiation and conflict resolution, will explore the pursuit of peace, in Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood. Examine the complexities of freedom and peace in the 21st century, tied to performances of Schoenberg’s Peace on Earth and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony (“Ode to Joy”).
Shapiro is a founding director of the Harvard International Negotiation Program, and bestselling author of Negotiating the Nonnegotiable.
This keynote speech coincides with the August 25 performances of Schoenberg’s >Friede auf Erden (Peace on Earth) with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus conducted by James Burton, and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony—culminating in the choral movement popularly known as the “Ode to Joy”— with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conductor Giancarlo Guerrero, and soloists Nicole Cabell, J’Nai Bridges, Nicholas Phan, and Morris Robinson. Composed more than 80 years apart, these two works present powerfully contrasting portraits of protest, freedom, peace, and shared humanity.
