This Week in New Haven (January 11 - 17)

Arts, sciences and above all reason help us navigate troubled and uncharted waters.

Monday, January 11
Starting tonight at 7:30, the Kallos Chamber Music Series presents Echoes That Remain. The virtual program, stretched across three consecutive Mondays and performed by violinist Kate Arndt, violist Jordan Bak, cellist Josh Halpern and pianist Min Young Kang, features “chamber works written in time of turmoil, whether… from inside or outside.” Tonight’s pieces, “D’un soir triste” and “D’un matin de printemps for violin, cello, and piano,” were composed in 1918 during World War I and the Spanish Flu pandemic by the French prodigy Lili Boulanger, whose longstanding health troubles would take her life that very year at age 24. Tickets start at just $5.

Congressional Democrats’ demand that Vice President Mike Pence, along with a majority of the Cabinet, force President Donald Trump from office via Section 4 of the 25th Amendment—a section which, as of this writing, has never been invoked—means the exact language of the Amendment has never been more significant. Read it here, then register for “The 25th Amendment: A Constitutional Mechanism for Removing the American President,” a free, virtual, 7 p.m. panel comprised of Yale professors Akhil Reed Amar and David Mayhew as well as elder statesman John Feerick, who literally “helped draft the 25th Amendment.”

In addition to going virtual, the Peabody Museum’s 25th annual “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Legacy of Social and Environmental Justice” festival is starting early this year with today’s 5:30 p.m. roundtable “focused on climate justice, racial equity, arts in movement-building, and Afrofuturism.” Proceeding with a backyard birding session tomorrow at 1 p.m., the schedule picks up on Sunday with a 6 p.m. poetry jam and a morning-to-afternoon slate for MLK Day on Monday.

At 6:45 p.m., it’s the next installment of Mixtape Bingo at The Cellar on Treadwell (295 Treadwell St, Hamden; 203-390-5816), where, “instead of balls with letters and numbers being called, your host plays a song. Match the songs with the squares on your bingo card. It’s that easy!” There are three rounds total, with bingo cards running $2 each or 6 for $10 and winners taking all the cash. FYI, “per DECD guidelines, all patrons are required to order a meal or appetizer when ordering an alcoholic beverage,” and, given limited space, reservations are recommended.

Saturday, January 16
Starting at 9:15 a.m., the Thurman Arnold Project at Yale and the Law, Ethics & Animals Program (LEAP) at Yale Law School present Big Ag & Antitrust: Competition Policy for a Sustainable and Humane Food System—“a virtual conference on the role and power of antitrust and competition law and policy in shaping the American food system.” An all-day schedule is jam-packed with worthy topics, organized into sections including “Animal Welfare,” “Farmers & Workers,” “Intellectual Property” and, of course, “Reforms.” Free; registration required.
