7:30 and 8:15 pm performances. This event is free and seating is limited. Please RSVP acceptances only to inauguration@mills.edu.

In honor of the inauguration of Alecia A. DeCoudreaux as Mills College president, we invite you to attend a one-of-a-kind performance of experimental music and contemporary dance that is quintessentially Mills.

The Mills Percussion Group, conducted by famed composer, conductor, and Mills faculty member Steed Cowart, will perform Credo in Us by avant-garde composer John Cage. This lively mix of jazz, blues, percussion, and live radio/DJ was composed in 1942 for Cage’s first collaboration with choreographer Merce Cunningham. For this occasion a newly commissioned dance to Credo in Us by award-winning choreographer, alumna, and Mills faculty member Molissa Fenley ’75 will be performed by members of her New York-based dance company along with both current and past dance MFA students in the Mills College Art Museum. Before the performances, explore the open studios of our MFA students and see the cutting-edge visual arts being created at Mills every day. A dessert reception follows.
