About The Artists
Betty Carter on Betty Carter
"My professional singing career was started at the Paradise Theatre in Detroit, winning an amateur contest. Soon after, I had the experience of 'sitting in' with the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band at a night club in my home town of Detroit. Another big experience was to 'sit in' with Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Max Roach, Duke Jordan, and Tommy Potter while never having to leave Detroit.
"In 1948 I had the good fortune to join the Lionel Hampton Orchestra. I remained with the band for two and one half years, while learning as much as I could. I soon learned to write orchestrations and wrote my first big band arrangement while remaining a member of the band. I left the band in 1951 to try my luck alone.
"After taking up residence in New York City, I began performing at all the small 'dives.' In other words, I was 'paying my dues.' Quickly, work became more suitable and I was performing at better clubs and theatres, including the Apollo, Howard, Royal, Regal, Earl, and many others.
"I was working with Miles Davis at the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C., and he introduced me to his agents. That meeting led to a tour with Ray Charles, which in turn led to a recording session with Ray and consequently, an upswing in my career. The album was recorded in 1960 and released one year later.
"In 1969 I ventured out and formed my own record company, BET-CAR productions. It was around the same time when record companies became disenchanted with 'jazz' and no longer wanted to record the music. The reason for this was that commercial music had become really big business. In a word, MONEY!"
This is Miss Carter's first performance under University Musical Society auspices.
Cyrus Chestnut, pianist, first met Betty Carter as a student at the Berklee College of Music, where she was teaching a master class. He joined her trio in 1991. Cyrus has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Chick Corea, Joe Williams, Charnett Moffett, George Adams, Jon Hendricks, Terrence Blanchard, and Donald Harrison at venues that include Avery Fisher Hall, The Blue Note, Village Vanguard, the JVCJazz Festival, the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Newport Jazz Festival in Japan, the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy, "Sesame Street" on PBS, and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
Willie James Terrill, III, drummer, is a sophomore music major at North Carolina Central University. In 1990 and 1991, he was named North Carolina All-State Percussionist and has participated in workshops led by Wynton Marsalis and the Count Basie Orchestra.
Christopher Thomas, bassist, has performed with Marcus Roberts, Ellis Marsalis and the JVC Young Futures, which toured Europe in 1991.

Achieving what its name im?plies, the New York City Opera National Company takes top-quality opera perfor?mances to communities throughout the country, at the same time providing talented young artists with valuable performing experience. Now with its new production of The Marriage of Figaro, the National Company is making its tenth and most extensive tour, covering 24 states from Maine to Florida and as far west as Kansas over a period of eleven weeks. As in previous years, the Company features its popular and much-praised supertitles, an innovation in opera that clarifies all of the action onstage while preserving the integrity of the original language libretto.
The New York City Opera National Company is now making its sixth visit to Ann Arbor, after Rigoletto (1985), Madama Butter?fly (1987), The Barber of Seville (1988), La Traviata (1989), and La Boheme (1990).
After last year's highly successful per?formances of La Boheme for fourth grade students in the Ann Arbor area, the Musical Society again collaborates with the National Company to present two abbreviated, spe?cially constructed performances of The Mar?riage of Figaro on Thursday. The Musical Society was recently recognized for this inno?vative Youth Opera Program when it received the Dawson Achievement Award from the Association of Performing Arts Presenters for creative achievement in arts administration. The Youth Opera Program is part of the larger UMS Youth Program that seeks to broaden the musical education, activities, and vision of young students in Ann Arbor and surround?ing communities.
Bass-baritone Eduardo Chama (Figaro) appears for the first time with the New York City Opera National Company this season. Mr. Chama began his musical training in his native Argentina and received both his
bachelor's and master's degrees in music at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. He has sung many of his major roles with the New Israeli Opera in Tel Aviv, including Colline in La Boheme, Bartolo in II Barbiere di Siviglia, Don Alfonso in Cosi fan tutte, and Dulcamara in L'Elisir d'Amore. With the Israel Philhar?monic and Zubin Mehta, Mr. Chama sang Baron Douphol and Dr. Grenvil in La Traviata and performed in the world premiere of Leonard Bernstein's Jubilee Games, with Bernstein conducting. Upcoming engage?ments include a concert version of L'Enfant et les Sortileges with the New World Sym?phony and a return to the New Israeli Opera for both Crespel in The Tales of Hoffmann and the title role in Don Pasquale. He will also appear in the Metropolitan Opera Guild's production of Don Pasquale.
Matthew Lau (Figaro) returns to the New York City Opera National Company in a role he has also performed with Fargo-Moor-head Opera, Aspen Music Festival, and New Jersey's June Opera Festival. The bass-bari?tone appeared as Colline in La Boheme on the National Company's 1990 tour. This past season, he made his New York City Opera debut as Dr. Bartolo in Le Nozze di Figaro and also performed the roles of Colline, Jim Larkens in La FanciuUa del West, Elder 3 in Moses und Aron, and the Armchair and Tree in L'Enfant et les Sortileges. Mr. Lau began his musical career as a violinist and while earning degrees in music from Indiana University and Eastman School of Music, he served as an apprentice with both Central City Opera and the Santa Fe Opera. Additional credits in?clude Escamillo in Carmen with Austin Lyric Opera, the title role in the Metropolitan Opera Guild's Gianni Schicchi, Colline with Virginia Opera and Texas Opera Theater, Leporello in Don Giovanni and the Gardener in The Secret Garden, both with the Pennsyl?vania Opera Theater, and the Bonze in Madama Butterfly with Atlanta Opera.
