Socially distanced duet
Alice Shen, Instructor in English, and Jon Isaac Lutz ’08, a musician and Equity actor, collaborated on a socially distanced duet of Peter, Paul and Mary’s “500 Miles” with Shen on the ukulele and Lutz on the guitalele. Lutz majored in theatre arts and is a musician and Equity actor.
"Music is a way to relax, reflect and spread joy and healing. Despite being literally confined to our homes, we all might feel 500 miles away from what makes home 'home' — safety, intimacy, our sense of stability," says Shen, who is also a playwright. "Jon and I hope this collaboration encourages everyone to keep learning and growing and hoping in this seemingly stagnant time."
