Join The Explorers Club on Monday, November 7th to explore the interdisciplinary field of ethnomusicology through performance.

Ethnomusicologists work in a variety of fields, environments, and places around the world. As researchers, they study music from every corner of the globe and investigate its connections to diverse elements of social life and culture.  Through their work, we can understand not only what music is but what it means to its practitioners and audiences.

Streaming live here on explorers.org, our YouTube Channel, and our Facebook Live — Monday, November 7th at 7:00 pm ET.

RESERVATIONS

This will be an in-person lecture at Explorers Club Headquarters, and we are opening a number of tickets to guests.

In-person tickets are $15 for Members, and $30 for the General Public.

Check-in will begin at 6:00 pm, with a beer and wine reception from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.

Speakers

Dr. Pedro Henriques da Silva, dma

Dr. Pedro Henriques da Silva is a Portuguese composer, classical guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, and New York University professor, whose numerous awards include Best Emerging Filmmaker Documentary Award at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival (American Pavilion), the 2017 International Portuguese Music Award, and several ASCAP Plus Awards (2015-2022). Da Silva has performed at the most prestigious halls in the world including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Musée du Louvre, Versailles Palace, among many others. He has received a great deal of composition commissions, including “Lullaby for the Earth” for classical guitar, piano, and orchestra, commissioned by the Rockefeller family; “Nocturnes for Ancestors,” a ballet by the José Limón Dance Company; “Echoes of Nature,” and “Nine Shakespeare Songs,” two symphonic song cycles with soprano and choir premiered in 2019 at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon, UK—Shakespeare’s Church—by Orchestra of the Swan under the baton of Royal Shakespeare Company music director, Bruce O’Neil. He was also commissioned the first concerto for Portuguese guitar and orchestra in history, which he premiered in 2017 with Orchestra of the Swan and recorded in 2019 as soloist with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields at Abbey Road Studios.

Da Silva composed over a dozen film scores, including “4 Feet High” for Arte France,“Motel X,” and “Death Metal Grandma,” all of which won awards at South by Southwest, MUSE, and Cannes Film Festival, respectively, and were part of the official selections of over 40 film festivals including the Venice Biennale, Sundance and London Film Festivals. Da Silva also recorded guitar for two films by Oscar-winning director Michel Gondry (“Be Kind Rewind” and “Tokyo!: Interior Design”), and in 2015 was commissioned two new film scores for full orchestra and choir to the Georges Méliès masterpieces “A Trip to the Moon” and “Joan of Arc.”

Together with his wife and collaborator, Lucia Caruso, he co-founded the Manhattan Camerata, a Transclassical™ chamber orchestra, and Light & Sound Film Scoring, a film music company.

Thanks to his love for ethnomusicology, da Silva has collected 34 instruments of the lute family from five continents. His doctoral dissertation at Manhattan School of Music explored and categorized over 2000 scales, modes, and tunings from around the world.
