Ivan Neville “Collective Impact” Performance

As part of Columbia's new “Collective Impact” performance series, multi-instrumentalist Ivan Neville will give a live performance with several student ensembles.

On Friday, November 16, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and singer, and leader of celebrated New Orleans-based band Dumpstaphunk Ivan Neville will give a live performance with several Columbia student ensembles performing songs of social justice at the Music Center Concert Hall, sponsored by Perkins Coie. Neville is also a Music Department artist-in-residence, where he will spend a week working directly and performing with students.

Neville’s performance is a part of Columbia’s Collective Impact, a performing arts series featuring four nationally renowned artists sharing their experiences in creating music, dance, and visual art that fosters a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive society. As part of the performance series, all featured artists provide strategies for providing meaningful engagement and consideration of how change is motivated through art. Artists will engage directly with Columbia students through classroom activities in which students will experience, discuss, and participate.

The series of exhibitions and performances will be held on campus and are open to the public. Each event will include a performance or exhibition and a lecture with the artist.
