Our March MUTD program entitled Elements of the Earth will feature performances by colleagues and students at CSU who are all neighbors in the historic district, around the corner from the CCSSC. First up will be Toru Takemitsu’s beautiful Toward the Sea, performed by CSU flutist Adeline DeBella and guitarist Agustin Rosada Marquez. Next will be Paul Bissel’s Equal Fire, a virtuosic piece for drums and wood with power rhythms played by the Schwob Percussion Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Paul Vaillancourt. This piece will shake the auditorium! Next will be another Takemitsu work, Air, performed by the elegant graduate flutist Kellie Henry. And to end this interesting mix, will be Pulitzer Prize winning composer John Luther Adams’ Earth and the Great Weather: Deep and Distant Thunder performed by the Schwob Percussion Ensemble. All designs for this program will be created by CSU Art professor Hannah Israel, who has a gift for mixing color and paint on all types of canvases, particularly those on domes! Reception at 5pm with wine and cheese, and 45 minute concert at 5:37pm!

The last concert of the MUTD season will be a joint performance that starts in the Coca-Cola Space Science Center and concludes in the Bo Bartlett Center. Firstly at the CCSSC, the Schwob Contemporary Ensemble will perform Maurice Ravel’s sumptuous and stunning Introduction and Allegro, featuring harp soloist Sara Hancock. Next up will be Morton Feldman’s quiet and haunting Piano Piece 1952 followed by Benjamin Britten’s Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo, a wonderfully inventive and beautiful set of songs that will be sung by Schwob faculty member Joshua May, who has performed in operas around the world This will be followed by Arvo Pärt’s deliciously gorgeous Spiegel im Spiegel performed by Schwob student cellist Jefferson Downs. Then the audience will take a short walk to the Bartlett Center for different music by the same composers. On this second half, we’ll start with Maurice Ravel’s Trois Poemes de Mallarme, an exquisite work sung by Schwob faculty member Dr. Michelle DeBruyn and accompanied by the Schwob Contemporary Ensemble. Next will be Morton Feldman’s King of Denmark for solo percussion followed by Benjamin Britten’s flowing Night Piece. Finally, the University Singers under the direction of Dr. Ianthe Marini will perform two works by the great Arvo Pärt: his Deer’s Cry and Summa, both gorgeous additions to the vocal repertoire that will fill the entire Bartlett Center with beautiful sound. This special evening will be one to remember. At the CCSSC, reception at 5pm with wine and cheese, and 45 minute concert at 5:37pm. Then 30 minutes later at the Barlett Center, we’ll have another light reception and a concert at 6:45pm for 40 minutes. Join us for this innovative evening hosted by Paul Hostetter (Schwob School of Music), Dr. Shawn Cruzen (director of the Coca Cola Space Science Center), and David Houston, (executive director of the Bo Bartlett gallery).
