Music: Virtuoso Series Concert, Janet Landreth, Piano

03.27.17 Janet LandrethAll-Chopin Concert

CSU faculty artist Janet Landreth performs a concert featuring works by the “Poet of the Piano,” Frederic Chopin, whose works capture the passion of 19th Century romanticism: poignant lyricism, chromatic expressiveness, and brilliant virtuosity. “Chopin’s music speaks to me in a very personal way, particularly after performing in Mallorca, Spain and visiting Valldemosso, the monastery where Chopin lived and contracted his final illness,” remembers Dr. Landreth. According to Byron Janis, who produced a rare documentary on Chopin, many of the piano works written in Mallorca were “gloomy and sad – they please your ear, but break your heart.”

Music: Classical Convergence, Sir James Galway

3.26.16 Sir James GalwayTickets: lctix.com or (970) 221-6730. Public pricing may increase by $5-$10 based on inventory.

Globally renowned as the supreme interpreter of the classical flute repertoire, Sir James Galway is a consummate performer whose appeal transcends all musical boundaries.  With over 30 million recordings sold worldwide, extensive international touring, frequent television appearances, tireless promotion of the arts and his passionate work in music education, Galway has been a household name for decades.

His uniquely expressive interpretations of the flute literature span an extensive range of genres, from classical masterworks to high profile commissions, and provide the benchmark standard for all modern flautists.  He has also collaborated on film soundtracks such as The Lord of the Rings, and partnered such popular artists as Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Joni Mitchell and Sir Elton John. The diversity of Galway’s repertoire reflects his impressive musical range, and has served to establish him as an artist of the very highest stature.

Belfast-born, Galway studied in London and Paris before embarking on his orchestral career in London’s major opera and symphonic orchestras.  He took up the coveted position of solo flautist with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Herbert von Karajan in 1969, before becoming one of the very first flautists to establish an international solo career in 1975.  Since that time, Galway has performed worldwide with all of the leading orchestras and most prestigious conductors.  He has a vast discography with 97 CDs to his name, and has enjoyed recording contracts with Sony Classics and Deutsche Grammophon.  Sir James Galway maintains his busy international touring schedule, continuing to appear at major venues and festivals with many of the world’s top orchestras and conductors.  After opening the 2015/2016 concert season with a sold-out concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London, forthcoming highlights this season include major recital and concerto tours of Asia, Europe and the United States.

Alongside his busy performing schedule, Galway devotes much of his free time to educational outreach programmes.  These include the Galway Flute Festivals held around the world, and his own online flute community: First Flute (www.firstflute.com).  Launched December 2013, the First Flute network allows students, teachers and music lovers first-hand access to Sir James’ expertise.  Galway also gives a great deal of time to charitable organisations, including SOS, FARA, Future Talent, Youth Music (UK), The Caron Keating Foundation, Lorin Maazel’s Châteauxville Foundation, and the Shimon Peres Peace Center educational project – as well as UNICEF, for whom he is a Special Representative.  He is also Ambassador to the European Brain Council.

Theatre: The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui by Bertolt Brecht

03.03.17 Arturo UiDirected by Walt Jones

Don’t yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!
Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,
The bitch that bore him is in heat again.
~The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, epilogue

Brecht’s shudderingly accurate parallel between Hitler and his henchmen on the one hand, and the old crime lords of Chicago on the other, is a vigorous eye opener that was produced on Broadway with Christopher Plummer. The Cauliflower Trust in Chicago is in need of help and turns to a racketeer by the name of Arturo Ui to begin a “protection” campaign. His henchmen look astonishingly like Goebbels and Goring. Their activities include “accidental” fires and a St. Valentine’s Day massacre.

Ghosts of Paul Muni, Jimmy Cagney, and Edward G. Robinson will be channeled with video clips of their famous gangster films Scarface, The Public Enemy, and Little Ceasar.

Music: Classical Convergence, Third Coast Percussion

3.1.17 Third Coast PercussionTickets: lctix.com or (970) 221-6730. Public pricing may increase by $5-$10 based on inventory.

Hailed by The New Yorker as “vibrant” and “superb,” Third Coast Percussion explores and expands the extraordinary sonic possibilities of the percussion repertoire, delivering exciting performances for audiences of all kinds. Formed in 2005, Third Coast Percussion has developed an international reputation with concerts and recordings of inspiring energy and subtle nuance.

These “hard-grooving” musicians (New York Times) have become known for ground-breaking collaborations across a wide range of disciplines, including concerts and residency projects with engineers at the University of Notre Dame, architects at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, astronomers at the Adler Planetarium, and more. The ensemble has also designed free iPhone and iPad apps that allow audience members to create their own musical performances and take a deeper look at the music performed by Third Coast Percussion.

Third Coast Percussion is the Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, a position they assumed in 2013.

Rivers, Glaciers, & Mammoths: Geoarchaeology in the San Luis Valley of CO

Jared Beeton, PhD

Date: Friday, February 17, 2017
Location: Lory Student Center 328-330
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Jared Beeton_250The San Luis Valley (SLV) of Colorado is home to Great Sand Dunes National Park, the mighty Rio Grande, two mountain ranges with fourteeners, and a large semi-arid alpine valley floor. The San Juan and Sangre de Cristo mountains were both glaciated in the late Pleistocene, leaving behind landforms such as moraines that relate to climate change. Four mammoth digs are active in the SLV; all are near paleo-water sources, three are in alluvial fans, and two are archeological sites. One of our big research questions is whether humans were associated with these mammoths. Fluvial geomorphology along the Rio Grande and its tributaries provides data on large-scale environmental change. A high water table in the SLV has constructed paleo and modern wetlands, which also preserve data on climate change and were magnets for cultural activity on the Valley floor. Spatial and temporal patterns of erosion, deposition, and stability in these landforms (moraines, fluvial terraces, wetlands, alluvial fans) relate to the archaeological story of the SLV. Radiocarbon and OSL data are providing archaeologists with a map of the most likely locations for the preservation of cultural materials of given ages.

About the Speaker

Jared Beeton is a Professor of Physical Geography at Adams State University in the San Luis Valley of Colorado. He has a PhD in Geography from The University of Kansas where he studied geoarchaeology under the guidance of Rolfe Mandel. Jared spends much of his time in the mountains of Colorado studying landforms, skiing or fly-fishing depending on the season, and playing with his three-year-old son Oliver.

11.06.11_Eric HollenbeckThis recital reminisces about pieces CSU faculty Eric Hollenbeck played in his developing years – the 90s. Two Mexican Dances by Gordon Stout, Nagoya Marimbas by Steve Reich, Anamism by Steven Ridley, and Potpourri by Matthew Harris were all played by Hollenbeck, or his peers, in college. “These pieces are still challenging and recall an earlier time when modern techniques and sounds in percussion were in their germinal state,” he said. White Pines by Michael Burritt is a tribute to the composer, who was also Hollenbeck’s former teacher.

Music: Classical Convergence, Cantus

2.2.17 CantusTickets: lctix.com or (970) 221-6730. Public pricing may increase by $5-$10 based on inventory.

The “intellectually, emotionally and musically rich” (Star Tribune) men’s vocal ensemble Cantus is widely known for its trademark warmth and blend, innovatibe programming and its engaging performances of music ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century. The Washington Post has hailed the Cantus sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” and refers to the “spontaneous grace” of its music making.

As one of the nation’s few full-time vocal ensembles, Cantus has grown in prominence with its distinctive approach to creating music. Working without a conductor, the members of Cantus rehearse and perform as chamber musicians, each contributing to the entirety of the artistic process. This collaborative work style allows Cantus to be flexible, adaptive and ready to embrace new ideas. The performance—whether in a recording or in a live concert—is one that would be entirely impossible without the artistic involvement of the entire ensemble.

Cantus performs more than 60 concerts each year both in national and international touring, and in its home of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. Cantus has performed on the stages of Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, UCLA, San Francisco Performances, Atlanta’s Spivey Hall and Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival. During the 2015-16 season Cantus presented their “cogent and well-executed” (Pioneer Press) touring program The Four Loves – featuring four Cantus commissions for each of the four different loves by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang, Roger Treece, Joseph Gregorio and Ysaye Barnwell – in New York at The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space in a live webcast for WQXR, with Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concerts and for Music Mondays, as well as in Denver, Tucson, Detroit Washington DC, and during the ensemble’s first visit to Colombia (South America).

Cantus is the recipient of three prestigious Chorus America awards, including the 2016 Dale Warland Singers Commission Award (Presented in partnership with the American Composers Forum), the Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence (2009) and the Education Outreach Award (2011). Cantus was also the 2010-2011 Artist in Residence on Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media’s Performance Today.

Integral to the Cantus mission is its commitment to preserve and deepen music education in the schools. Cantus works with more than 5,000 students each year in master class and workshop settings across the country. Now in its eighth year, the award-winning High School Residency program brings Cantus into Minnesota schools several times a year for mentoring with a culminating public concert in the spring.

But on a deeper level, musical variations, such as chaconnes, can be a metaphor for hope and change as a stubborn theme can evolve in the course of a piece, and yield fresh insights…”

A native of Québec, she is recognized as one of North America’s most virtuosic organists. Her concert at the 2010 American Guild of Organists National Convention was received with great acclaim, not only by critics who deemed it “one of the most outstanding events of the convention” (The American Organist), but also by the standing-room-only audience, which called her back five times. A review of her concert for the joint International Society of Organbuilders/International Organization for Standardization Convention in 2010 said that “she enchanted the entire audience with her virtuoso performance,” leaving the entire congress in an atmosphere of “Demers fever.”

Theatre: Noises Off by Michael Frayn

NoisesOffDirected by Eric Prince

November 11, 12, 17, 18, and 19, 7:30 p.m.
November 13, 2 p.m.

Join us for Michael Frayn’s ingenious, multi-award-winning comedy Noises Off and take a trip behind the scenes as everything that could possibly go wrong, goes wrong. A 1980s English theatrical touring troupe desperately tries to hold its middling sex comedy ‘Nothing On’ together. With less than a few hours to go until curtain-up, it’s all downhill as backstage antics, forgotten lines, not-so-secret romances, hilarious malfunctions, and a plate of sardines all result in a disastrous production…and riotous, raucous, hilarious, ridiculous, glorious comedic bliss.

Tony, Emmy, Critics’ Circle, and six times London Evening Standard Award-winning writer Michael Frayn’s plays include Donkey’s Years, Alarms and Excursions, Democracy, and Copenhagen. Noises Off was awarded the British Olivier and Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy when first presented in 1982.

Music: Classical Convergence, Paul Huang, Violin

11.11.16 Paul HuangThe young violist is quickly gaining a reputation for his eloquent music making, distinctive sound, and effortless virtuosity.

Recipient of the prestigious 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Taiwanese-American violinist Paul Huang is already recognized for his intensely expressive music making, distinctive sound, and effortless virtuosity. Following his Kennedy Center debut, The Washington Post proclaimed: “Huang is definitely an artist with the goods for a significant career.” In 2013, The New York Times praised his “masterly account of Barber’s Violin Concerto” with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Alice Tully Hall.

Mr. Huang’s recent recital appearances included Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, University of Georgia Performing Arts, University of Florida Performing Arts, the Strathmore Center, Buffalo Chamber Music Society, Chamber Music Society of Palm Beach, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Jordan Hall, the Louvre in Paris, Seoul Arts Center, and National Concert Hall in Taiwan.

His first solo CD, Intimate Inspiration, was released on the CHIMEI label. In association with the Camerata Pacifica, he also recorded “Four Songs of Solitude” for solo violin for their album of John Harbison works. The album was released on Harmonia Mundi in fall 2014.

An acclaimed chamber musician, Mr. Huang appears as a member of the prestigious Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two as well as a Principal Artist for the Camerata Pacifica in Santa Barbara and throughout California. A frequent guest artist at summer music festivals worldwide, his upcoming appearances include debuts at Music@Menlo, La Jolla, Bad Kissingen, as well as returning to Caramoor, CHANEL, Great Mountains, and Moritzburg Festivals. His collaborators have included Gil Shaham, Pamela Frank, Kim Kashkashian, Nobuko Imai, Maxim Rysanov, Roberto Diaz, David Finckel, Paul Watkins, and Frans Helmerson.

Born in Taiwan, Mr. Huang began violin lessons at the age of seven. Since entering the Juilliard Pre-College at fourteen, he has continued studies at the school with Hyo Kang and I-Hao Lee. Mr. Huang was a recipient of the inaugural Kovner Fellowship at The Juilliard School, where he earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. He plays on the 1742 ex-Wieniawski Guarneri del Gesù on loan through the generous efforts of the Stradivari Society of Chicago. Mr. Huang’s website is www.paulhuangviolin.com. Follow him on Facebook: Paul Huang, Violinist.

Paul Huang will be accompanied by Jessica Osborne, Piano.

Jessica OsbornePianist Jessica Xylina Osborne was born in 1979 in San Antonio, TX, and grew up in Reston, VA. Dubbed a “superb pianist” and “… A pianist with a refreshing mellowness and poetic touch” by the Washington Post, Ms. Osborne’s career has allowed her to perform concerts in some of the most prestigious venues in the world, including Weill Hall and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Terrace Theater at the Kennedy Center, and the Seoul Arts Center, among others. Ms. Osborne has received degrees in piano performance from Indiana University (B.M.), Rice University (M.M.), and Yale University (A.D. and D.M.A.).  She has had the privilege to work with many important mentors, including Claude Frank, Emile Naoumoff, Jon Kimura Parker, Seymour Lipkin, Marjorie Lee, and her mother, Patricia Osborne.  This season, she is embarking upon an exciting tour of recitals presenting works by women composers, both past and present.

Theatre: Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry

UBU

WARNING: THE THEATRE PRODUCTION OF UBU ROI IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR ALL AGES. The play contains strong sexual content, adult situations, and nudity.

It’s A Riot with CSU Theatre’s Production of Ubu Roi by Alfed Jarry
No-holds-barred performance art pushes buttons and boundaries

Guest Director, Nick Taylor of the Community College of Denver
Ubu Roi shows on Oct. 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees on Oct. 16 and 23 at 2 p.m.

Not often produced outside of collegiate theatre, Ubu Roi, by Alfred Jarry is an allegory about the abuses of the wealthy. Banned in France for decades – the play caused a riot when it first premiered in 1896 – the vulgar and wacky show is both relevant and controversial, with parallels to the current political environment. Think Monty Python meets South Park meets the 2016 Presidential Election meets nothing like you’ve ever experienced before.

Often cited as the seminal work of the Avant-garde movement, Ubu Roi is part play, part performance art, and part art instillation. Originally written and staged – with puppets – to mock a school teacher, Ubu Roi references many classical texts…and the rest is poo jokes. In this translation, King Ubu’s flatulent tale displays his over-indulgent rise to the top and Pa Ubu’s plot to usurp the throne from the King of Poland. Filled with scatological humor, physical inanity, a couple of gorillas, and the entire Polish and Russian armies, Ubu Roi is a messy good time perfumed with a 15 second intermission.

Ubu Roi caused riots when it opened in Paris in 1896, and its shock waves continue to vibrate. — NY Times

Ubu Roi may have been written in 1896, but make no mistake: It’s a punk play. This surreal satire about a malevolent couple that betrays, steals and kills for money and power is as anti-establishment as the Sex Pistols braying at the queen — no wonder American post-punk band Pere Ubu took its name from the lead character.

Ubu Roi may have been written in 1896, but make no mistake: It’s a punk play. This surreal satire about a malevolent couple that betrays, steals and kills for money and power is as anti-establishment as the Sex Pistols braying at the queen — no wonder American post-punk band Pere Ubu took its name from the lead character. 

— Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post

The classical half of the concert features two dynamic new works: “Radiant Spheres” for trombone and piano, composed in 2015 by David Biedenbender from Michigan State University; and “Ground Round” for trombone and live electronics, which follows the tale of a cow moving from pasture to auction block. Joined by current and former CSU trombone students and freelance jazz trombonist Rob Borger, Chris debuts four new arrangements of music for six trombones and rhythm section, all drawing from the hard bop and soul genres. The unique location allows for an intimate setting for the classical half and ideal acoustics for the jazz half.
