The string quartet will introduce students to some of the historic innovations in ensemble and orchestra music that continue to excite today’s audiences. Through interactive demonstrations, students will learn how the 'inner voices' fill out a classical ensemble’s sound, how the instruments 'converse,' and how classical composers have imaginatively built upon short motifs to create full-length masterpieces.

10. Join Us as we Honor Kitty Moriwaki on April 19

Tuesday, April 19
4:30pm - 6:00pm
CCSF Ocean Campus, MUB 140

Please join us for an event acknowledging Kitty Moriwaki's work on behalf of Japanese-American City College Students Interned During World War II and telling the story of the permanent art exhibit.   

In 2010, Kitty was instrumental in locating disenrolled Nisei graduates to award them the diplomas they deserved. We will be joined by several of the artists featured in the permanent exhibit in MUB 140 and by John Tateishi, a former CCSF English professor. Tateishi gained national prominence in 1978 when, as the National Redress Director of Japanese Americans Citizenship League, he launched a campaign to seek redress for Japanese Americans interned in U.S. detention camps during WWII. 

In 1988, the Japanese American community won a landmark victory when President Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act, which paid out $20,000 to each of the 80,000 survivors of Japanese descent detained during the war. Tateishi and others lobbied members of Congress again in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, when U.S. federal agents detained 2,000 people of Arab, Muslim, and South Asian heritage. 

This event is timely, not only because Kitty is retiring soon, but also because of the anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric of current political campaigns. 

For questions regarding this event, please contact Lauren Stuart Muller at lmuller@ccsf.edu.
