March 22, 2022 - Harvard Alumna Book Reading - Natalie Hodges AB'19
Harvard Alumna Book Reading - Tattered Cover Aspen Grove (Littleton) March 22, 2022 at 7:00 pm MST
Natalie Hodges, AB'19, will read from her recently published book Uncommon Measure. Natalie's book of essays on music and time is the result of her senior thesis at Harvard.
Natalie was born and raised in Denver and attended Kent School prior to attending Harvard.
Please plan to join with RMHUC members and friends for a special session with Natalie prior to the reading.
How does time shape consciousness and consciousness, time? Do we live in time, or does time live in us? And how does music, with its patterns of rhythm and harmony, inform our experience of time?
Uncommon Measure explores these questions from the perspective of a young Korean American who dedicated herself to perfecting her art until performance anxiety forced her to give up the dream of becoming a concert solo violinist. Anchoring her story in illuminating research in neuroscience and quantum physics, Hodges traces her own passage through difficult family dynamics, prejudice, and enormous personal expectations to come to terms with the meaning of a life reimagined—one still shaped by classical music but moving toward the freedom of improvisation.
