Flutronix Premieres Black Being


About the Program

Musical duo Flutronix, featuring flutists Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins-Hull, presents a new work at The Arts Club, a co-commission between The Arts Club of Chicago and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Titled Black Being, this evening-length performance of original music gives voice to the complexities of Black feminism through themes of strength, sacrifice, beauty, fear, and survival. Providing a musical lens into Black female cultural realities, Flutronix crafts Black Being around a newly commissioned text by North Carolina poet laureate Jaki Shelton Green, “a poet whose work exemplifies how poetry can spark conversation and can help us learn about one another’s lives and unique experiences, which promotes greater understanding.”

To enter the in-person program, please be prepared to present an official COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card certifying that you have received a vaccination (photo of card is acceptable) or official documentation of a negative PCR test.
