I 'm delighted to welcome you to this performance presented by the University Musical Society (UMS) of the University of Michigan. Thank you for supporting the performing j arts in our community by your attendance at this event. Please consider coming to some of our other performances this season. You'll find a complete listing beginning on page 29. UMS, now in our 122nd year, was recently recognized by Musical America as one of the five most influential performing arts present?ing organizations in the US. The others were Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Cal Performances at Berkeley. We were cited for our commitment to quality, diversity, education, community engagement, and commissioning new work from composers and choreographers. We are excited about this recognition and pleased '? that our 20002001 season continues our commitment to these important goals.
This season UMS will present ninety per?formances for a total audience expected to exceed 125,000 people. If current trends con?tinue, over 30 of the audience will be first-time UMS ticket purchasers, reflecting UMS' efforts to embrace all of the people in our community and to welcome them to the nine performance venues that we rent throughout southeastern Michigan. We expect to host more than 200 educational events, serving
more than 60,000 people.
More than half of our presentations this season feature artists and ensembles from outside the US, representing more than twenty nations. We will close our regular season with a UMS co-commission and world premiere featuring the Ping Chong Company and Ensemble Sequentia, bringing the number of new music and dance pieces UMS has commissioned over the past decade to twenty-five, most of them in partnership with other presenters from throughout the world.
We are able to maintain our distinctiveness thanks to you who make up our audience and to the corporations, foundations, govern?ment agencies, and thousands of individuals and families who support us through their contributions. During this extraordinary season, when, for example, UMS and the University of Michigan partner with the Royal Shakespeare Company to bring four
of Shakespeare's extraordinary history plays to Ann Arbor in an exclusive US presentation, we must raise more than half of our $8-million budget from donations. I invite you to help us in this effort by becoming a UMS member this season. For more information about membership, turn to page 45. And if you haven't done so already, consider purchasing a copy of BRAVO!, our award-winning 224-page table-top book containing recipes, legends, and lore from 120 years of UMS history. It makes a great gift, and all proceeds benefit UMS.
Overseeing our fundraising efforts with 'I great skill is Christina Thoburn, our newly-appointed Director of Development whom I hope you'll be able to get to know. Christina came to us in April 2000 from The Cleveland Orchestra where she led foundation and gov?ernment relations. Her career also includes being managing director of the Cleveland Chamber Symphony where she developed a passion for diverse programming and community engagement. An avid knitter and baseball fan, Christina is married and the mother of three grown children. She succeeds Catherine Arcure, who left UMS to work with violinist Itzhak Perlman in New York City as Executive Director of the Perlman 1
Music Program. __

x0UMA annals
he goal of the University Musical Society (UMS) is clear: to engage, educate, and serve Michigan audi?ences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 121 years, strong leader?ship coupled with a devoted community has placed UMS in a league of internationally-recognized performing arts presenters. Indeed, Musical America selected UMS as one of the five most influential arts presenters in the United States in 1999. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for this rich and varied history, balanced by a commitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in the new millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts. UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Frieze and conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Their first performance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879, and this glorious oratorio has since been per?formed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
As a great number of Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University
Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year presented a series of concerts featuring local and visiting artists and ensembles.
Since that first season in 1880, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the very best from the full spectrum of the perform?ing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensem?bles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theatre. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works,
Musical America selected UMS as one of the five most influential arts presenters in the United States in 1999.
youth programs, artist residencies and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. UMS now hosts over eighty performances and more than 150 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that gathers in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, Power Center for the Performing Arts, Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, the Detroit Opera House, Music Hall and the Residential College Auditorium.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor cam?pus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organization that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contri?butions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
J hroughout its 121-year history, the University Musical Society Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conductors. Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 150-voice Choral Union is known for its definitive per?formances of large-scale works for chorus and orchestra. Seven years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Among other works, the chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadow Brook for subscription performances of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd. In 1995, the Choral Union began accepting invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream ofGerontius, the Berlioz Requiem and other masterworks to its repertoire. During the 1996-97 season, the Choral Union again expanded its scope to include performances with the Grand Rapids Symphony, joining with them in a rare presentation of Mahler's Symphony No. 8 (Symphony of a Thousand).
The Choral Union is a talent pool capable of performing choral music of every genre. In addition to choral masterworks, the Choral
Union has recently given acclaimed concert presentations of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra and musical-theatre favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadow Brook. A 72-voice chorus drawn from the larger choir has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Solenelle, the Mozart Requiem and other works. The Choral Union's 36-voice Chamber Chorale presented "Creativity in Later Life," a program of late works by nine composers of all historical periods, at the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
During the 1999-2000 season, the Choral Union performed in three major subscription series at Orchestra Hall with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, including performances of Shostakovitch's Symphony No. 13 (Babi Yar), and Igor Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, all conducted by Neeme Jarvi, as well as John Adams' Harmonium, conducted by the composer. Other programs included Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra and Scriabin's Symphony No. 5 with the Russian National Orchestra.
During the current season, the UMS Choral Union will again appear in two series with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, both conducted by Neeme Jarvi. The chorus will join in the DSO's opening night performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection), followed later in the season by Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. The Choral Union's 122nd-annual performances of Messiah follow, as the choir is joined by world-class soloists and the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra. The chorus will make its debut with the Kalamazoo Symphony in March 2001, performing Mendelssohn's rarely-heard Symphony No. 2. The Choral Union's season will close on April 22, 2001, in a performance of Hector Berlioz' Requiem with the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra and members of the U-M School of Music Symphony Band in Hill Auditorium, conducted by Thomas Sheets.
Participation in the Choral Union remains
open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion--a love of the choral art. For more information about the UMS Choral Union, e-mail or call 734.763.8997.
Hill Auditorium
tanding tall and proud in the heart of the University of Michigan campus, Hill Auditorium is associated with the best perform?ing artists the world has to offer. Inaugurated at the Twentieth Annual Ann Arbor May Festival in 1913, the 4,163-seat Hill Auditorium has served as a showplace for a variety of important debuts and long relationships throughout the past eighty-seven years. With acoustics that highlight everything from the softest notes of vocal recitalists to the grandeur of the finest orchestras, Hill Auditorium is known and loved throughout the world.
Former U-M regent Arthur Hill bequeathed $200,000 to the University for the construction of an auditorium for lectures, concerts and other university events. Then-UMS President Charles Sink raised an additional $150,000, and the concert hall opened in 1913 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing
Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. The auditori?um seated 4,597 when it first opened; subse?quent renovations, which increased the size of the stage to accommodate both an orchestra and a large chorus (1948) and improved wheelchair seating (1995), decreased the seating capacity to its current 4,163.
Rackham Auditorium
ixty years ago, chamber music concerts in t Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, present; ed in an assortment of venues including j_ University Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium, and Newberry Hall, the current home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will established the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A. Rackham Fund, which subsequently awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School, which houses the 1,129-seat Rackham Auditorium, but also to establish a $4-million endowment to further the development of graduate studies. Even more remarkable than the size of the gift, which is still considered one of the most ambitious ever given to higher-level educa?tion, is the fact that neither of the Rackhams ever attended the University of Michigan. ?
Power Center for the Performing Arts
he Power Center for the Performing Arts grew out of a realization that the University of Michigan had no adequate proscenium-stage theatre for the performing arts. Hill Auditorium was too massive and technically limited for most productions, and the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre too small. The Power Center was designed to supply this missing link in design and seating capacity.
In 1963, Eugene and Sadye Power, together with their son Philip, wished to make a major gift to the University, and amidst a list of
Hill Auditorium
x0Power Center
University priorities was mentioned "a new theatre." The Powers were immediately inter?ested, realizing that state and federal govern?ment were unlikely to provide financial sup?port for the construction of a new theatre.
The Power Center opened in 1971 with the world premiere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by Truman Capote).
No seat in the Power Center is more than seventy-two feet from the stage. The lobby of the Power Center features two hand-woven tapestries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes by Pablo Picasso.
Due to renovations to Burton Memorial Tower, the Power Center will be home to the UMS Box Office for the duration of the cur?rent season, j
Michigan Theater i he historic Michigan Theater opened , January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaude?villemovie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the 1,710-seat theater cost around $600,000 when it was first built: As was the custom of the day, the theater was equipped to host both film and live stage events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ. At its opening the theater was acclaimed as the best
of its kind in the country. Since 1979, the theater has been operated by the not-for-profit Michigan Theater Foundation. With broad community support, the Foundation has raised over $8 million to restore and improve the Michigan Theater. The beautiful interior of the theater was restored in 1986. In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater opened a new 200-seat screening room addi?tion, which also included expanded restroom facilities for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000 and the balcony and backstage will be restored during 2001.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appoint?ed pastor of a new parish in Ann Arbor. Seventeen years later ground was broken to build a permanent church building, and on March 19, 1969 John Cardinal Dearden dedi?cated the new St. Francis of Assisi Church. Father James McDougal was appointed pastor in 1997.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church has grown from 248 families when it first started in 1950 to more than 2,800 today. The present church seats 900 people and has ample free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splen?did three manual "mechanical action" organ with thirty-four stops and forty-five ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through ded?ication, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision to the future, the parish improved the acoustics of the church build?ing, and the reverberant sanctuary has made the church a gathering place for the enjoy?ment and contemplation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
? otwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS recently began presenting artists in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre in 1993, when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the intimate 658-seat theatre for the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. Now, with UMS' programmatic initiative to present song in recital, the superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has become a recent venue addition to UMS' roster and the home of the Song Recital series as well as the venue of choice for the world premiere of Curse of the Gold: Myths from the Icelandic Edda, part of UMS' new International Theater Festival.
Detroit Opera House
?he Detroit Opera House opened in April . of 1996 following an extensive renovation by Michigan Opera Theatre. Boasting a 75,000 square foot stage house (the largest stage between New York and Chicago), an orchestra pit large enough to accommodate 100 musicians and an acoustical virtue to rival the world's great opera houses, the 2,800-seat facility has
rapidly become one of the most viable and coveted theatres in the nation. In only two seasons, the Detroit Opera House became the foundation of a landmark programming col?laboration with the Nederlander organization and Olympia Entertainment, formed a part?nership with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and played host to more than 500 performers and special events. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality program?ming, partnerships and educational initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Music Hall t
riginally called the Wilson Theatre, Music Hall was completed in 1928 with funds
provided by Matilda Wilson (Mrs. Alfred G.).
William E. Kapp of Smith, Hinchman & Grylls,
an architectural firm whose works dominated
Detroit's skyline of the 1920s, designed the Art Deco-style edifice. Terra-cotta Greek masks adorn the exterior, and elaborate molded plaster and stenciling complement the interior. The theatre's purpose of offering legitimate
productions was initially fulfilled, but during the Depression its lights dimmed except on sporadic occasions. From 1946 through 1949, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra occupied the structure which was renamed Music Hall. During the 1950s and 1960s, area residents came to the theatre to enjoy cinema. Now the home of the Music Hall Center, Music Hall is restored to its original use and appearance. __________
The Residential College 1 Auditorium j
'he Residential College (RC) is an academic unit within the College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA), with roughly sixty faculty and 900 students, offering a four-year liberal arts education and a unique living-learning expe?rience in the East Quadrangle -one of the University's student residence complexes. A few years after the opening of the RC in 1967, the RC Auditorium was construct?ed in an alcove between exterior brick walls of the northern and southern parts of East Quad (these walls are still visible). In line with the founding philosophy of the RC Drama Program, the
Auditorium incorporates a thrust stage; more than 200 people can be seated around the stage on the main floor and in an overhanging bal?cony.
The Auditorium has been used as a class?room, lecture hall, movie theater and concert hall, as well as the site for hundreds of pro-
ductions by the RC Drama Program, the RC's "Brecht Company" (staging more than a dozen of Brecht's works), the RC's "Deutsches Theater" (performing plays in German), and the student-run "RC Players." Dramatic pro-
ductions at the Auditorium have ranged from Euripides to Sam Shepard and have included numerous student-written plays--some of them awarded Hopwood Prizes. Other events include Professor Peter Arnott's marionette realizations of Greek tragedies, Asian theater demon?strations, Native American danc?ing, a complete production of Mozart's Cost fan tutti, and a monodrama by lesbian activist Holly Hughes. The RC Auditorium has also been the site of readings by many promi?nent writers, including poets Allen Ginsberg, Jerome Rothenberg and John Sinclair as well as authors Christopher Curtis and John Hawkes.
Burton Memorial Tower
een from miles away, Burton Memorial Tower is one of the most well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor landmarks. Completed in 1935 and designed by Albert Kahn, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet.
The familiar home of UMS Administrative offices undergoes
significant renovations this season, moving the UMS Box Office to a new, temporary location in the Power Center.
UMS Administrative offices have also been relocated--to 109 E. Madison--but please continue to use our Burton Memorial Tower mailing address.

George Frideric Handel ?? njmiipp. ,. Born on February 23, 1685 in Halle, Germany .Died on April 14, 1759 in London
. eorge Frideric Handel's sacred oratorio Messiah is without ques?tion one of the most popular works in the choralorchestral
__ repertoire today. In what has
W& become an indispensable Christmas tradi-?' tion, amateur and professional musicians in JaR almost every city and town throughout the country perform this work as a seasonal W&: entertainment, and are rewarded with the j$jj. satisfaction of taking part in one of the Sj$, great communal musical events. H. Since the first performances in 1742, " p generations of musicians have adapted jp Handel's Messiah to suit the changing tastei.. HI of fashion and function. The small ensem-?agjt bles Handel conducted himself had around j; twenty singers and an equal number of instrumental players, but even before the & end of the eighteenth century much larger & ensembles were performing the work. By the ft? mid-nineteenth century, when the appeal of W: the spectacle sometimes outweighed the igf; demands of musical integrity, singers and fr instrumentalists for a single performance tj; would often number in the several thou-'??' sands. But the size of the ensemble wasn't i".:' the only variable. Mozart re-orchestrated ;J jtj Handel's score in 1789, adding extra parts ?S for woodwinds to give the orchestral writing SJ' richer harmonies and a more varied timbre. &? Sir Arthur Sullivan and Eugene Goosens likewise made their own arrangements of the orchestral parts, updating the work for their . respective audiences. And in 1993, a popular ?.? recording of excerpts from Messiah titled A Soulful Celebration brought together Stevie $ Wonder, Quincy Jones, Al Jarreau, the Boys I Choir of Harlem, and others in a gospel1 style interpretation of Handel's music. The ,1 diversity of performance styles and enthusiyj
astic responses to this oratorio over the cen?turies testify to its immense popularity.
The oratorio as a musical genre origi?nated during the seventeenth century in the churches and monasteries of Italy. In the Oratory (a side chapel found in many con?secrated buildings), the theatrical presenta?tion of vocal music on a sacred topic was an adjunct to the liturgy of the Church. But by 1700, oratorios were being performed in . private chapels and palaces as a form of M entertainment, and had taken on the nowgj standard characteristics of a sung drama on sacred texts, without staging or costumes.
Handel composed several oratorios early in his career, including some in.L-Italian-Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno and La Resurrezione--and the later English-language works Esther, Deborah, and Athalia. But after the collapse of his operatic ventures in London around 1740, Handel devoted himself to the orato?rio as a form in which he could combine his flair for dramatic vocal writing and his ? experience as a composer of sacred, devo-fg tional music. With these later oratorios 'Handel eventually won back the esteem of the London critics, and secured a phenome?nal public following that would ensure his future success and reputation. iilsiSgaS!
The text for Messiah was selected and compiled from the Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible by Charles Jennens, an aristocrat and musicianpoet of modest tal?ent and exceptional ego. With Messiah, . Jennens seems to have outdone himself in compiling a libretto with profound thematic coherence and an acute sensitivity to the inherent musical structure. With the fin.'i& ished libretto in his possession, Handel began setting it to music on 22 August 1741, and completed it twenty-four days later. He was certainly working at white-hot speed, but this didn't necessarily indicate he was in the throes of devotional fervor, as legend has often stated. Handel composed many of his
works in haste, and immediately after conP pleting Messiah he wrote his next oratorio, ; Samson, in a similarly brief time-span, ihi
The swiftness with which Handel com-" posed Messiah can be partially explained by the musical borrowings from his own earlier compositions. For example, the melodies . used in the two choruses "And He shall purify" and "His yoke is easy" were taken from an Italian chamber duet Handel had written earlier in 1741, "Quelfior che all' alba rider Another secular duet, "No, di voi non vo'fidarmi" provided material for the famous chorus "For unto us a Child is born," and the delightful "All we like sheep" borrows its wandering melismas from the ' same duet. A madrigal from 1712, "Se tu non lasci amore" was transformed into a ? duet-chorus pair for the end of the oratorio,' "O Death, where is thy sting," and "But thanks be to God." In each instance, howev?er, Handel does more than simply provide new words to old tunes. There is consider?able re-composition, and any frivolity that remains from the light-hearted secular models is more than compensated for by the new material Handel masterfully worked into each chorus. ?---
Over-enthusiastic "Handelists" in the ?? nineteenth century perpetuated all sorts of legends regarding the composition of Messiah.' An often-repeated story relates how Handel's '? servant found him sobbing with emotion while writing the famous "Hallelujah Chorus," and the composer claiming, "I did :. think I did see all Heaven before me and the great God Himself." Supposedly Handel often left his meals untouched during this compo?sitional period, in an apparent display of devotional fasting and monastic self-denial. ? Present-day historians more familiar with ? Handel's life and religious views tend to " downplay these stories. It's been suggested that if Handel did indeed have visions of Heaven while he composed Messiah, then it was only in the same manner in which he
visualized the Roman pantheon of gods while he composed his opera Semele. Handel's religious faith was sincere, but tended to be practical rather than mystical.
Handel was also not a native English-speaker, and examples of awkward text-setting in Messiah demonstrate some idiosyncrasies in his English declamation. He set the word "were" as if it had two syllables, and "surely" with three syllables. In the bass aria, "The trumpet shall sound," Handel originally declaimed "incorruptible" with emphasis on the second and fourth syllables. While these can be corrected by the editor of the score or
the singer in performance, sometimes____
Handel placed rhythmic accents on the wrong words entirely. Yet they are so familiar to us now that we don't hear them as unusu?al: "For unto us a Child is born," or "Come unto Him, ye that are heavy laden." S' The first public performance of Messiah took place in Dublin, Ireland, on 13 April & 1742. As this was to be a benefit perfor''& mance for charity, the ladies were asked not to wear hoop dresses, and the men to leave their swords at home, in order to accommo?date more people in the hall. Messiah was an unqualified success in Dublin; Handel had worked for months preparing his chorus and orchestra, and brought in some of the finest solo singers from England. The alto soloist in particular sang so affectingly that after one aria an audience member 3
exclaimed from his chair, "Woman, for this, be all thy sins forgiven." But when Handel took Messiah to London the following sea?son, it received a chilly reception. Even though King George II attended the first performance at Covent Garden Theatre (and, it is claimed, initiated the tradition of standing for the "Hallelujah Chorus"), London audiences found its contemplative texts lacking in drama and narrative action, and it closed after only three performances. Some clergy considered the theatre in general a den of iniquity and certainly no place for
a work on such a sacred 'topic (Handel '" couldn't win--when it was scheduled to be ,' performed in Westminster Abbey, other ? members of the clergy declared it sacrilege j for a public entertainment to take place in aJ consecrated church). And Jennens, the librettist, wasn't entirely pleased with what Handel had done to his texts. After initially t voicing his thorough disappointment with ?& the work, Jennens later declared Handel's M composition "a fine Entertainment, tho' not near so good as he might and ought to have done." It wasn't until 1750, when another ' performance for charity was staged at the fl Foundling Hospital in London, that Englishlj audiences took Messiah to their hearts, and j!B yearly performances at the hospital from ? that time on established the lasting popularity of both the work and its composer. Upon Handel's death in 1759, he willed his score and parts for Messiah to the Foundling Hospital in a charitable gesture of gratitude.
The tradition of performing Messiah at .. Christmas began later in the eighteenth century. Although the work was occasionally f performed during Advent in Dublin, the f? oratorio was usually regarded in England as Jj an entertainment for the penitential season Jb of Lent, when performances of opera were jM banned. Messiah's extended musical focus on Christ's redeeming sacrifice also makes it particularly suitable for Passion Week and Holy Week, the periods when it was usually performed during Handel's lifetime. But in 1791, the Caecilian Society of London began ? ? its annual Christmas performances, and in .ffl 1818 the Handel and Haydn Society of r-'M Boston gave the work's first complete per" formance in the United States on Christmas Day--establishing a tradition that continues to the present. The University Musical . .
Society is a direct result of this tradition. In'-v -1879, a group of local university and towns?people gathered together to study Handel's Messiah; this group assumed the name "The Choral Union" and, in 1880, the members of
the Choral Union established the University Musical Society.
Following the pattern of Italian baroque opera, Messiah is divided into three parts. The first is concerned with prophecies of the Messiah's coming, drawing heavily from messianic texts in the Book of Isaiah, and concludes with an account of the Christmas story that mixes both Old and New Testament sources. The second part deals with Christ's mission and sacrifice, culminating in the grand "Hallelujah Chorus." The final, short?est section is an extended hymn of thanks?giving, an expression of faith beginning with Job's statement "I know that my Redeemer liveth" and closing with the majestic chorus "Worthy is the Lamb" and a fugal "Amen." ? In its focus on Christ's sacrifice Messiah ;t resembles the great Lutheran Passions of Schiitz and Bach, but with much less direct narrative and more meditative commentary on the redemptive nature of the Messiah's earthly mission. Handel scholar Robert Myers suggested that "logically Handel's master?piece should be called Redemption, for its author celebrates the idea of Redemption, rather than the personality of Christ."
For the believer and non-believer alike, Handel's Messiah is undoubtedly a majestic musical edifice. But while a truly popular favorite around the world, Messiah aspires 'l& to more than just a reputation as an enjoy?able musical event. After an early perfor?mance of the work in London, Lord Jj@? Kinnoul congratulated Handel on the "noble entertainment" he had recently brought to the city. Handel is said to have replied, "My Lord, I should be sorry if I only entertained them; I wished to make them better." Certainly Messiah carries an tSJi$ ennobling message to people of all faiths and credos, proclaiming "peace on earth, and goodwill towards men"--a message that continues to be timely and universal, -xenon:-

? oung American bass-baritone Dean Ely is in demand worldwide in both operatic and concert repertoire.

Writing of his performance, Anthony Tommasini said, "Dean Ely with a virile sound...robust and evenly produced, made a strapping Figaro.

fvhe Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra (A2SO) has been a part of Ann Arbor's cultural life for nearly sev?enty-five years. The Orchestra was i founded in 1928 by Joseph Maddy ' (founder of Interlochen Music Camp) as a j "mom and pop" orchestra of committed j and talented amateur musicians. Since 1986, the A2SO has been a fully professional orchestra, first under the baton of Carl St. Clair, and for the past seven seasons, under the leadership of Samuel Wong. During the 1999-2000 season, five distinguished finalists who wished to succeed Maestro Wong con?ducted the orchestra. Maestro Arie Lipsky, who conducted three sold-out Youth Concerts in March and gave the premiere of Michigan's Millennium project, Lokananta, was chosen to lead the A2SO into the new century. He began his "Season of Firsts" in September 2000.
The stature of the orchestra has grown significantly in the past fourteen seasons.
Audiences have been treated to thrilling per?formances of five Mahler symphonies, . jjt Bruckner's Symphony No. 8, Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5, Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, the Four Last Songs by Richard Strauss and the "Prelude" and "Liebestod" from Wagner's Tristan und Isolde. New works by Ann Arbor composers Gabriel Gould and Bright Sheng have filled the hall of the historic Michigan Theater. These orchestral powerhouses sup?plement the A2SO's already strong repertoire taken from the standard classics of Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart (including a sold-out Requiem with the UMS Choral Union in 1999), Tchaikovsky and others. f Off-stage, the Ann Arbor Symphony W Orchestra has also grown in stature. A2SO in-school educational programs and Youth Concerts reach over 16,500 area students each year. The A2SO is an official "Partner for Excellence" with the Ann Arbor Public Schools. The Orchestra teams with humani?ties specialists from area public schools and the University of Michigan to continue a standard-setting youth-concert curriculum. Pre-concert lectures and broadcasts of A2SO concerts on WGTE radio help audiences be life-long learners. The excellence of the Orchestra's volunteer corps was recognized on a statewide level, as the A2SO volunteer Conductor Search Chair, Jane Wilkinson, was named the winner of the 2000 Governor's Service Award. The A2SO is well supported by community members, foundations, local businesses and merchants.
The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra has per?formed in the annual UMS presentation of Messiah since 1988. This weekend's perfor?mances mark the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra's thirty-third and thirty-fourth appearances under UMS auspices. T""J-

Large print programs are available upon request.
aking the music on Punishing Kiss was truly challenging and a fun ride. My wish to work with contemporary songwriters is as , old as I am a performer, but various marginal collaborations aside, there is always so much historical repertoire urg?ing itself right at the entrance of my stage door that this wish had been diluted for years by other priorities. Even in interpret?ing the works of the cabaret and theatre world of the Weimar Republic, the French : chanson and other musical territories I .?' always felt in my approach and grip on ?j these pieces, very contemporary, rather rough and psychological, unvainly realistic ; and very rarely romantic. The songs per-fl formed this evening, written by Elvis Costello, Nick Cave, The Divine Comedy, Philip Glass, Tom Waits and Scott Walker, are like contemporary cabaret songs, the?atrical and passionate. David Sefton, who is the senior producer of contemporary cul?ture at the South Bank in London, the Director of the Flux Festival and Meltdown got all these artists sending songs to me. This project is really a result of his initiative.It was quite peculiar and a fragile act of balance for us to arrange the Elvis Costello songs which are so specific and theatrical ] and work so well when he sings them him? self. Besides being a real Costello admirer, I just love pulling them into my world. His poetry and composition are unbelievably sophisticated and complex. He writes like the French intellectuals and poets of the 1960s: uncompromising, passionate and emotionally disturbed; lost, conversational like Stephen Sondheim--he's a wicked por?traitist and satirist. : Nick Cave's "Little Water Song" is a ? ... jewel. The surreal text, together with a rather minimalist melody, make a real art song. The song is "sung" underwater. The woman written of in the lyrics is being drowned by her lover and she watches his anger and her own life fade away in serenity.
The more this story pushes towards the edge, the more I love performing it. Every " note and word involves a thousand-meter deep fall into nothing. ;
The "Tango Ballad" or "Ballad of Immoral Earnings" from The Threepenny ??'" Opera, is contributed by Kurt Weill. The year 2000 marks the centenary of his birth i; and the fiftieth anniversary of his death. Finally, I am able to sing these Brecht words in an edgy, spooky sound world of "today". The song only gains in purpose and intensi?ty. The rough loop and drum pattern beat the tune just like it's supposed to be and just like Jenny and Macheath beat on each other and exploit the world for their income, however outrageous the undertaking. It j entirely retains and even stresses the beauty of Weill's original composition. This is where pop and theatre melt together.
I was very surprised and grateful for Philip Glass' contribution of Streets of Berlin. He originally wrote this song for the movie Bent, adapted from Martin Sherman's play. I approach the song purposely not like a cabaret song, but as a more frightening, violent cry-in-the-dark in today's under?ground world of Berlin.
Scott Walker's piece is an epic work. It uses an entity of sound and language in its paralysed, fragmented inability to express the darkness through the tunnel of exis?tence. I try to sing Scope J in a delirious state of mind, similar to Ophelia's in Hamlet. Scott was very clear with his directions: "imagine you would blindfold yourself and plug your ears in 100 darkness and silence, let thoughts go wherever they want to, the sound of your mind, your fears, the sound of images translated into subjectivi?ty;" that's where Scott Walker's music starts. His compositions are experiences beyond, y the limits of where music dares to go.
I am a Tom Waits fan, so anything I say about him sounds like religious worship of 500-miles high on good Bavarian grass. His stories are about marginal characters, out-
casts, loners, losers but survivors. The visions seem shaded, angled, blurred and helpless but deeply passionate about what's left when nothing's left. His songs make pic?tures that remind me of Fassbinder movies, Wim Wenders and Francois Truffaut, songs from Serge Gainsbourg, Weill and Brecht. That's why I feel very close to his universe... ,

In one evening, UMS pays tribute to and presents the artist with the UMS Distinguished Artist Award, and hosts a dinner and party in the artist's honor. Van Cliburn was the first artist so honored, with subsequent honorees being Jessye
Norman, Garrick Ohlsson, The Canadian Brass, and Isaac Stern (Left).
This season's Ford Honors Program will be held in early May. The recipient of the 2001
UMS Distinguished Artist Award will be announced in January 2001.
