The University of Michigan (UM) would like to join the University Musical Society (UMS) in welcoming you to the 2002 2003 season. Additionally, we would like to thank you for your support of the performing arts. We are proud of the wonderful partner?ship we have developed with UMS and of our
role as co-sponsor and co-presenter of several events on this season's calendar. These events reflect the artistic beauty and passion that are integral to the human experience. They are also wonderful opportunities
for University of Michigan students and fac?ulty to learn about the creative process and sources of inspiration that motivate artists and scholars.
The current season marks the second resi?dency by the Royal Shakespeare Company of Stratford, England which performs three plays in March: The Merry Wives of Windsor, Coriolanus, and Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children. UM and UMS co-presentations are not limited to theater, but also include per?formances by the Vienna Philharmonic, the Bolshoi Ballet, and a special event entitled "Evening at the Apollo," in which the best performing groups from Detroit and Ann Arbor are given a chance to compete for a slot at Harlem's Apollo Theater Amateur Night, where Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, and other legends of 20th-
century American music got their big breaks. As befits the educational missions of both the University and UMS, we should also recognize the co-sponsorship of educational program?ming involving, among others, the Abbey Theatre of Ireland, Grupo Corpo, Sekou Sundiata and creative co-sponsorship of presentations by the Hubbard Street Dance Company and the well-known female a cappella group Sweet Honey in the Rock.
Most significantly, I would like to thank the faculty and staff of UM and UMS for their hard work and dedication to making this partnership a success. UMS staff, in particular, work with the University's faculty and students to create learning opportunities for our campus, and in the case of the larger residencies, for the greater community.
The University of Michigan is pleased to support the University Musical Society during its 0203 season. We share the goal of making our co-presentations the type of academic and cultural events that benefit the broadest possible constituency.
Mary Sue Coleman,
President, University of Michigan
Thank you for joining us for this UMS performance. We appreciate your support of the performing arts and of UMS, and we hope we'll see you at more of our programs this season. Check the complete listing of UMS's 2003 Winter Season events beginning on p. 29 of the glossy pages of this program
and on our website at
We welcome UM President Mary Sue Coleman to the southeast Michigan community and to membership on the UMS Board of Directors. The
university from which President Coleman came to Michigan has a distinguished record in its support of creative artists. During the Millennium season alone, while Dr. Coleman was president, the University of Iowa's Hancher Auditorium premiered over 20 new works in music, dance, and theater, all of them com?missioned by Hancher. This unprecedented level of support of creative artists by a uni?versity presenting organization captured the attention of the performing arts field world?wide and reinforced the idea that research in the performing arts is as important and as valid to a great university as is research in other fields. We thank Dr. Coleman and her predecessors Lee C. Bollinger and B. Joseph White for the extraordinary level of UM sup?port for the second residency of the Royal Shakespeare Company March 1-16 and of eight other UMS projects this season that offer special value to the University's mission of teaching, research, and service.
This season offers some special challenges for UMS with the closing of Hill Auditorium
for restoration and renovation. With your understanding and support, we know we will overcome these difficulties and have a successful season. As we await our reopening concert scheduled for January 2004, UMS is creating special opportunities for our patrons to see and hear world-renowned artists in outstanding venues in Detroit, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor. You won't want to miss the February 27 return of the Vienna Philharmonic for the first time in the region since 1988. For many of our Detroit performances, UMS is offering transportation by luxury coach to our Ann Arbor patrons.
Yes, things are different this season. The UMS staff is determined to do everything we can to make this season run as smoothly as possible for you and our other patrons. Please let us know if you have any questions or problems. Call our ticket office at 734.764.2538, now led by Ticket Services Manager Nicole Paoletti, successor to Michael Cowing who retired last year. You should also feel free to get in touch with me about anything related to UMS. If you don't see me in the lobby at our performances, you can send me an email message at or call me at 734.647.1174.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
U MS leadership
As I start my tenure as Chair of the Board of Directors of the University Musical Society, I am honored to serve an organization that brings rich and exciting cultural offerings to the University, to Ann Arbor, and to the larger community of southeastern Michigan. Where, outside of a major metropolis, could one have the opportunity to attend such a wide variety of events as Hubbard Street Dance, Medea, Tamango and Urban Tap, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and Bill T. Jones in a single academic year When my husband Ami and I first considered moving from Boston to the Midwest, UMS was an important part of our decision. The cultural life of Ann Arbor -it seemed to us then and continues to us now -is vital and accessible, equal only to major cities in the US. Many others share these same feelings. UMS remains one of our best recruiting tools, attracting people from all over the world to our community by bring?ing the most distinguished performing artists to our doorsteps. (Of course, this year, one of our "doorsteps" is temporarily fenced in and surrounded by a big hole!) Through UMS offerings we educate ourselves, enjoy ourselves and come to a fuller understanding of different cultures.
Of course, we could not possibly accomplish our goals of arts presen?tation, audience education and creation of new works without the generosity of UMS donors -individuals, corporations, philanthropic foundations, and government agencies. We are very grateful for the support they provide for our programs.
We look forward to continuing to present the best performing artists in the world to you each season, and we hope to see you at many perform?ances this winter.

Choral Union Audition information and performance schedules for the UMS Choral Union.
Through an uncompromising commitment to Presentation, Education, and the Creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) serves Michigan audiences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vig?orous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 124 years, strong leadership 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 com?mitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in this 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 performing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theatre. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. UMS now hosts approximately 90 perform?ances and more than 150 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in 11 diverse venues in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Detroit.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organ?ization that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, special project support from UM, and endowment income.
Throughout its 124-year history, the UMS 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. Nine years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when it began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO). Among other works, the chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadowbrook for subscription performances of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, John Adams's Harmonium, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms's Bin deutsches Requiem, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd.
In 1995, the Choral Union began accept?ing invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius, the Berlioz Requiem and other masterworks to its repertoire.
The Choral Union opened its current season with performances of Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with the DSO, followed by a performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra. In December the chorus presented its 124th series of annual performances of Messiah, using the rarely-heard Mozart revision of Handel's great work in Michigan Theater. The Choral Union's season will conclude in March with a pair of magnificent French choral works: Honegger's King David, accom?panied by members of the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, and Durufle's mystical Requiem, accompanied by organist Janice Beck.
The Choral Union's 0102 season includ?ed performances of Messiah, Ives's Symphony No. 4 with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem with Thomas Sheets conducting the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, all in Hill Auditorium. To conclude its 123rd season, the Choral Union joined the DSO and Neeme Jarvi in three critically acclaimed performances of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis.
During the 20002001 season, the UMS Choral Union appeared in two series with the DSO. The season culminated in a performance of Berlioz's Requiem with the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, along with tenor Stanford Olsen and members of the UM School of Music Symphony Band in Hill Auditorium.
The Choral Union is a talent pool capable of performing choral music of every genre. In addition to choral masterworks, the Choral Union has performed Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra, and other musical the?atre favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadowbrook. The 72-voice Concert Choir drawn from the full chorus has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Soletmelle, and the Mozart Requiem. Recent programs by the Choral Union's 36-voice Chamber Chorale include "Creativity in Later Life," a program of late works by nine composers of all historical periods; a joint appearance with the Gabrieli Consort and Players; a performance of Bach's Magnificat, and a recent joint performance with the Tallis Scholars.
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Composed of singers from Michigan, Ohio and Canada, members of the Choral Union share one common passion--a love of the choral art. For more information about membership in the UMS Choral Union, e-mail choralunion@ or call 734.763.8997.
With the 18-month closing of Hill Auditorium for renovations, the 0203 UMS season will include performances by the world's celebrated music, theater and dance artists in 11 venues in three cities: Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Detroit.

The 18-month, $38.6-million dollar reno?vation to Hill Auditorium began on May 13, 2002 under the direction of Albert Kahn Associates, Inc., and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects. Hill was first opened to Michigan audiences in 1913 and this current renovation project will update all of its infrastructure systems and restore much of the interior decor to its original splendor.
Exterior renovations will rebuild brick paving and stone retaining walls, restore the south entrance plaza, rework the west barrier-free ramp and loading dock, and improve the landscaping which surrounds the building.
Interior renovations will create additional restrooms, improve audience circulation by providing elevators, replace main-floor seating to increase patron comfort, introduce barrier-free seating and stage access, replace audio?visual systems, and completely replace all mechanical and electrical infrastructure sys?tems for heating, ventilation, and air condi?tioning.
Upon reopening in January 2004, Hill Auditorium will decrease in seating capacity from 4,169 to 3,710.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
Notwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS regularly 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. The superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has been the home of the UMS Song Recital series for the past eight years.
Michigan Theater
The 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.
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 balcony restorations have been completed.
Power Center for the Performing Arts
The 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 University priorities was mentioned "a new theatre." The Powers were immediately inter?ested, realizing that state and federal government were unlikely to provide financial support for the construction of a new theatre.
No seat in the Power Center is more than 72 feet from the stage. The lobby of the Power Center features two hand-woven tap?estries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes by Pablo Picasso.
Rackham Auditorium
Sixty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented in an assortment of venues including Univer?sity Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium, and Newberry Hall, the cur?rent 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.
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 34 stops and 45 ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through dedication, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision to the future, the parish improved the acoustics of the church building, and the reverberant sanctuary has made the church a gathering place for the enjoyment and con?templation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Ypsilanti Venues
EMU Convocation Center
An exciting new era in EMU athletics was set in motion in the fall of 1998 with the opening of the $29.6-million Convocation Center. The Barton-Malow Company along with the architectural firm Rossetti Associates of BirminghamThe Argos Group began con?struction on the campus facility in 1996. The Convocation Center opened its doors on December 9, 1998 with a maximum seating capacity of 9,510 for center-stage entertain?ment events.
Pease Auditorium
Built in 1914, Pease Auditorium was reno?vated in 1995. Earlier this year, the resto?ration of the AeolianSkinner pipe organ was completed and the interior of the auditorium was refurbished. Pease Auditorium can seat up to a total of 1,541 concertgoers.
Detroit Venues
Detroit Opera House
The 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
2,735-seat facility has rapidly become one of the most viable and coveted theatres in the nation. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality programming, partnerships and educational initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Orchestra Hall
Orchestra Hall was dedicated in 1919 as the new home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In 1939, after the depression, the orchestra moved to the Masonic Temple Theatre and the facility was renamed the Paradise Theatre. The Paradise became one of the nation's most famous stages for African-American Jazz musicians (1941-1951).
In the late 1950s, the building was aban?doned and fell into disrepair. In 1964, it was headed for the wrecking ball, but local citizens rallied to save the great concert hall. DSO musicians and volunteers founded Save Orchestra Hall, Inc., to marshal citizen sup?port for the retention and restoration of the building to its former architectural grandeur.
In September 1989 the DSO returned to Orchestra Hall, now its permanent home, cap?ping a multi-million-dollar restoration effort.
In 1996, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra launched Orchestra Place, an $80-million development project on eight acres of land surrounding Orchestra Hall.
Burton Memorial Tower
Seen from miles away, Burton Memorial Tower is one of the most well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor land?marks. Completed in 1935 and designed by Albert Kahn, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet. UMS administrative offices returned to our familiar home at Burton Memorial Tower in August 2001, following a year of significant renovations to the University landmark.
This current season marks the second year of the merger of the UMS Ticket Office and the University Productions Ticket Office. Due to this new partnership, the UMS walk-up ticket window is now conveniently located at the Michigan League Ticket Office, on the north end of the Michigan League building at 911 North University Avenue. The UMS Ticket Office phone number and mailing address remains the same.

'Dear U!MS Tatrons,
7t's time to celebrate the New Year and UMS's 2003 Winter Season! As with all events, I want to extend a special "thank you" to each of you attending tonight's presentation. I certainly hope you will enjoy the performance, and I look forward to seeing you at upcoming events in the months to come. For a complete listing of UMS's winter events please visit our website at
As the Director of Education and Audience Development, I am constantly re-examining the important role that art and artists canshoulddo play in the community. Many times, our audiences aren't aware of all of the really positive and important community work that UMS plans in con?junction with their performances; it is this type of work that lets you, the UMS patron and arts advocate, know that your money is being well spent. It is also this type of work that reminds you that UMS is living up to its mission of being an exemplary presenter of world-class artistry and thoughtful community engagement, as well as an advocate for the creation of new work.
Our commitment to our community is exemplified in some of the upcoming performances listed in this program book edition:
Sweet Honey in the Rock with Toshi Reagon and Big Lovely-These
Ann Arbor favorites are back to celebrate their 30th anniversary. Their founder, Bernice Johnson Reagon (prounounced "ree' gon"), has invited her daughter Toshi to perform with her group, Big Lovely. They are not only performing a new UMUMS-commissioned piece, but they will also be performing for over 2,800 K-12 students as part of our Youth Education Program. Sweet Honey is one of the rare companies that travels with its own sign-language interpreter, and with special support from Pfizer, nearly 200 deaf students and their friends will participate in these shows. UMS is also pleased to honor and acknowledge the simultaneous 30th anniversary of the UM Women's Studies Department as part of this special Sweet Honey anniversary.
Bill T. JonesAmie Zane Dance Company with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center featuring the Orion String Quartet It is not
every day that you get to see classical chamber musicians and post-modern dancers on stage at the same time! But that is what you will see during these performances. Bill T. Jones is one of America's preeminent choreogra?phers, and these performances will allow you to see some of his recent
choreographic forays. While the company is in residency, they will be travel?ing to Spain Middle School in Detroit to conduct a special presentation for over 800 middle school dance students as part of a unique UMS partnership with the Detroit Public School Dance Program.
Sekou Sundiata's blessing the boats Sekou Sundiata is one of our great contemporary musicianpoetperformers. His autobiographical work-in-progress, blessing the boats, is a one-man, interdisciplinary performance about his experience of going through the US hospital system dealing with kidney failure and subsequent neck injury. While he is in Ann Arbor, he will be working with area hospital patients, spoken word performing teenagers, university poets, and Detroit-based spoken word artists, among others. He is the example of the positive impact that an artist can have when they go into a community.
Sekou Sundiata and Band with special guests Khary Kimani Turner and the Black Bottom Collective For UM's Martin Luther King, Jr. com?memoration, Mr. Sundiata will "raise the roof" to honor MLK's important legacy. On board with Mr. Sundiata is local poetmusician Khary Kimani Turner and his band, the Black Bottom Collective, an ensemble named after the historic African American neighborhood in Detroit. Their combination of poetry, music, and activism makes this definitely a performance you won't want to miss!
It is this important, all-encompassing work that you have come to expect from us. I hope that you are able to attend many of our upcoming offerings: from performances, to education events, to fundraisers. We feel that UMS serves an increasingly important and integral role in the quality of life for our patrons and the larger Michigan community. Your presence and sup?port validates all of our efforts.
If you would like to share any feedback on these performances, or share anything, please feel free to e-mail me at I would be thrilled to hear from you!
Once again, thank you, and I hope to see you soon!

Sweet Honey in the Rock is still on the journey more than a quarter of a century after her first concert performance at Howard University, November 1973. According to music historian Horace Boyer writing in the intro?duction to Continuum, the name Sweet Honey in the Rock has its own unique history:
On February 28, 1927 in Memphis, Tennessee, the blind sanctified singer Mamie Forehand recorded a refrain based on Psalm 81:16. In this passage of scripture, the poet and musi?cian David advised his people that if they would serve the Lord, they would be rewarded by being fed 'honey out of the rock....' While Forehand titled her song, Honey in the Rock and sang those words, random congregations soon added the adjective 'sweet' to the title, and the song has come down through history as 'Sweet Honey in the Rock.'
Growing up in Southwest Georgia, Bernice Johnson Reagon heard the song sung by quartets, and although she had never sung it herself, it was a song that was constantly singing in her head as she called together a group of the strongest singers from her vocal workshop with the DC Black Repertory Company. It was 1973, and that evening the first song she taught the group was Sweet Honey in the Rock.
As Sweet Honey evolved into an ensem?ble of African American women, so did their understanding of the legacy of African American women in the struggle for the survival and continuance of their people was, that land that was so rich, that when one cracked the rock, honey flowed forth.
With work extending beyond the con?cert stage, Sweet Honey was featured in the sound track of the HBO TV movie, Boycott, a 2001 film about the historic 381-day Montgomery Bus Boycott sparked by the arrest of Rosa Parks. That momentous boy?cott resulted in the rise to leadership of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., and the US Supreme Court decision declaring illegal
the practice of segregated seating on Alabama's buses. The film soundtrack features Aaron Neville and Sweet Honey performing Ella's Song, composed by Reagon in tribute to organizer-activist Ella Baker, who worked in Montgomery during the boycott.
With composer James Homer, Sweet Honey created and recorded the soundtrack for the film Freedom Song, produced by Danny Glover and directed by Phil Robinson. This project tells the story of Bob Moses and student organizers of SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) arriving in McComb, Mississippi and join?ing with local leaders and students to launch a voter registration campaign.
Sweet Honey continued her annual young people's concerts in honor of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, with perfor?mances in Boston sponsored by the Algebra Project and MIT; in New York City at the Washington Irving High School; and in their home base of Washington, DC, at the Union Temple Baptist Church. This week?end of events was capped by a live appear?ance on ABC's Good Morning America, on the actual holiday morning.
The group's latest recording, Still the Same Me (Rounder Records) was nominated for a Grammy and received the Silver Award from the National Association of Parenting Publications.
Carol Lynn Maillard, an original member of Sweet Honey, closes her historical essay in Continuum speaking of those energies that have held the group steady: "As we move ahead into Sweet Honey's future, we take not only the voices of all the women who have sung on a Sweet Honey stage (there have been 22), but we also take the love of every?one who has supported us over the years."
Tonight's performance marks Sweet Honey in the Rock's fifth appearance under UMS aus?pices. The ensemble made their UMS debut in January 1993.
A powerhouse of energy with a deep commitment to her music and social ideals, Toshi Reagon is one of the most dynamic and soulful artists today. Whether fronting her band Big Lovely or playing to a group of friends in her living room, she delivers a musical feast of humor and intel?ligence through her dynamic voice and fierce guitar playing.
A throwback to classic R&B artists like Prince, Stevie Wonder and Led Zepplin, Toshi Reagon is able to take a style of music and update it, making it her own with
incredible ease. Mixing her musical loves rock, soul, funk, blues and folk she has per?formed with Miriam Makeba, Albita and others. As an already sea?soned performer, she jumped into the spotlight when she dropped out of
college after Lenny Kravitz tapped her to open for him on his first world tour. Since then, Ms. Reagon has earned the respect of numerous musicians including Elvis Costello, who asked her and Big Lovely to back him up for his appearance on the "Late Night Show with David Letterman."
She has performed at the Hollywood Bowl, the Brooklyn Academy of Music's 1999 tribute to Prince, Central Park's Summer Stage, the Smithsonian's Folklife Festival and at the International African Arts Festival.
Born in Atlanta and raised in Washington DC, Ms. Reagon cites her musical abilities from her family, particularly her mother, Bernice Johnson Reagon. Both of her parents belonged to the SNCC's (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) The Freedom Singers, a folk group that sprung
from the Civil Rights Moment and toured the country to teach people about civil rights through song. Her musical heritage led to her becoming saturated in many traditional styles of music, feeding her desire to explore a range of music, from blues to Kiss. Ms. Reagon has developed a style that transcends classification, but also expresses a political and social consciousness.
Ms. Reagon's acclaimed releases include Kindness, The Righteous Ones, on which she collaborated with Sweet Honey in the Rock on the song "Real Love," and her latest album, entitled Toshi.
Tonight's performance marks Toshi Reagon and Big Lovely's UMS debuts.
Ysaye Maria Barnwell is a native New Yorker now living in Washington, DC. Since 1979, she has performed with Sweet Honey in the Rock and written many of the ensembles contemporary compositions. Dr. Barnwell spends much of her time off stage working as a master teacher and choral clinician in cultural performance theory. She has con?ducted her workshop, Building a Vocal Community: Singing in the African American Tradition for both singers and non-singers all over the United States, Great Britain and Australia. A prolific composer, Barnwell has been commissioned to create a number of dance, choral, film, and stage productions. As an actress her credits include a principle role on the television series A Man Called Hawk and an appearance in the film Beloved, directed by Jonathan Demme. Barnwell pro?duced TWENTY-FIVE...(RYKP Records), Sweet Honey's 25th anniversary recording, served as editor of Continuum: The First Songbook of Sweet Honey in the Rock (A CappellaHal Leonard, 1999). Her first chil?dren's book, No Mirrors In My Nana's House (Harcourt Brace, 1998) based on her com?position by the same name, was illustrated
by Synthia Saint James. Um Hiimm, (Windhorse ProductionsSounds True Label) her recording of personal and tradi?tional stories and songs, was released in 2000.
Nitanju Bolade Casel came to Sweet Honey bringing her unique performance experience in African vocal styles, jazz, improvisational rhythms, and hip-hop after four years of study, performance and cultural organizing in Dakar, Senegal. While in Africa, Casel co-founded with Marie Guinier, ADEA (Artistes des Echanges Africaines), an orga?nization dedicated to the exchange of ideas and services between African artists of the diaspora. Joining Sweet Honey in 1985, she has expanded the ensemble's repertoire through her original compositions and contemporary arrangements of traditional African songs. Her extensive training, research, and teaching experience in African-derived traditions has its base in those pioneering communities of the late sixties which led the way to redefining and making accessible African expressive culture in the United States. Bolade's compositions have been included in: World of Music (Silver Burdett & Ginn), a textbook for children and The Box, a TV pilot from Robert de Niro's Tribeca Production Company. Casel also appeared in the Smithsonian production, Duke Ellington's Great Ladies of Song. She is currently co-director, with her sister Aisha Kahlil, of First World Productions, a cultural and educational performance arts organiza?tion. Casel made her film debut in Beloved directed by Jonathan Demme. Nitanju Bolade Casel is wife of Mfundishi Tayari Casel and mother of Obadele Jumoke Ajamu Jaja Bayete Casel.
Aisha Kahlil joined Sweet Honey in 1981. As an experienced performer of jazz-African song and dance traditions, she moved the ensemble into new ground in the exploration of vocal improvisation. Kahlil is Sweet
Honey's strongest blues singer, a genre she had not explored before coming to the group. In 1994, CASA (Contemporary A Capella Society of America) named Kahlil Best Soloist for her performances of See See Rider and Fulani Chant. Some of the group's most innovative and experimental work occurs in the performance of her compositions including Fulani Chant, Wodaabe Nights, and Mystic Ocean. Wodaabe Nights was included in the 1998 PBS film series, Africans in America, produced by WGBH TV. Fulani Chant has also been included in the soundtracks of Down in the Delta, directed by Maya Angelou, and Climb Against the Odds a film produced by the Breast Cancer Fund. In her work as a per?forming artist and master teacher in voice and dance, Kahlil specializes in the integra?tion of traditional and contemporary forms of music, dance and theater. Her credits as vocalist and dancer include: the Raymond Sawyer Dance Theater, Sounds of Awareness, Sundance, and the African Heritage Dancers and Drummers. She has taught at the Institute for Contemporary Dance, Leslie College, Dance Works, Dance Place, Joy of Motion, and the Levine School of Music. Kahlil is currently at work on a recording project of her original compositions and arrangements.

The Art of Collaboration
If music and dance go hand in hand, then live music and dance share a more intimate embrace. It is the exhilarating potential inherent in that partnership that has fueled the collaboration between Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
During the course of this joint project, the two companies created three new repertory works set to a diverse series of chamber music pieces. The musical selections include some pillars in the chamber music repertoire as well as more contemporary works arrestingly beautiful in their own right. Performing with live musicians is nothing new for Mr. Jones, but it has become an increasing priority. In fact, it was the collaboration between Mr. Jones and the Orion String Quartet at a Classical Action benefit at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in 1998 that inspired this project. Here, Bill T. Jones and David Shifrin tell the story of this unique partnership, describing the thrill and challenges of working in and between these two artistic forms.
Jones: It all started when Charlie Hamlin of Classical Action invited me to perform at a benefit at the Majestic Theater. I said yes, and that I would like to dance to Beethoven. Of course I was scared to death of Beethoven, but I was very much enamored with the "Adagio" from the Op. 135 quartet. Charlie said, "Oh yes, and I will get the Orion String Quartet to play for you." The Orion and I had great fun. There was something about the ritualistic aspect of how they as musi?cians get on stage, how they behave on stage when they are a visual presence, and how they take their bows that we explored. They found all this extremely challenging, novel, and inspiring, and they wanted to do more. When the prospect of doing a new work that used live music came up, I began to look for a way of working the Orion into it.
Shifrin: Bill works with music in a way that is different than many other choreographers and dancers, in that it is much more part of the whole experience. When he worked with the Orion String Quartet players at BAM, even just working with the players on the
bow, and how they acknowledged the applause from the audience after one move?ment of the Beethoven quartet was inspiring. He got the musicians to think not just about how they were playing, but how they were moving onstage. It was not accompaniment in the pit, playing the rhythms and the sounds to make a dancer move. It was all part of a larger experience. What Bill did at that time was absolutely stunning in the way that he made the music part of the choreog?raphy and the choreography part of the live music performance. We thought, "Wouldn't it be nice to do more"
When Bill was considering which works to choreograph for this collaboration, we talked about everything the entire history of chamber music. He listened to Schubert, Bartok, Beethoven and Shostakovich. We wanted him, first and foremost, to choose works that worked for his vision and chore?ography and with his dancers. At the same time, I wanted it to be music that was absolutely first rate. The late Beethoven quartets are pillars in the canon, bridging the classical era and the great legacies of
Haydn and Mozart with the 19th century and the great drama and unbelievable depth of emotion found at that time.
The Kurtag is something entirely differ?ent, musically speaking, and it was a brilliant choice to have something recently composed and very different in language. Kurtag's music is very dramatic. It is episodic, espe?cially the microludes each one of these pieces is very short. Some of them are only 20 seconds long. Some of the things that are striking to the listener are the extreme con?trasts in his work: from very quiet to much more extroverted, dramatic, louder playing and his use of silence. There are many places where absolutely nothing happens in the music, and yet a lot happens because of the drama of the silence.
Jones: In the last five or six years, I have been listening to and thinking a lot more about romantic music, and romantic cham?ber music is extremely powerful. The accomplishment of the early Romantics was that they were able to suggest, through very succinct forms, a wide range of emotions, but with great precision. After all, there are only four instruments, and they take you many, many places. Once the early Romantics had sort of captured my attention and my heart, I began to think about the form of the string quartet with more sophistication and ultimately became more adventuresome. That is how I got to the Kurtag.
With the Beethoven quartet, we handed out the musical scores to the dancers. We actually had the dancers on the floor articu?lating learned phrases or creating material using the parts. One group would take the cello; another group would take the viola. I have never really done that before with a group of dancers. On the surface, the Beethoven is very simple and very moving, but the actual architecture of it is a serious thing. I wanted the dancers to understand that and to have greater respect for how this seemingly simple music is made. I also
wanted to rein myself in so as not to work purely from imagination but actually to try to understand the structure of the music more profoundly as I began to expand with it.
The two works that make up Shostakovich's Prelude and Scherzo for String Octet, Op. 11 are breathtaking in their brevi?ty, richness and evocative power. The music, by 18-year-old Shostakovich, is scored for a double string quartet and invites us to explore an athletic, rhythmically propelled vocabulary enhanced by rapid changes in emotional pitch, gesture and musicality.
Shifrin: When you think of dance ballet or modern you think of the dance being dominant and the music being secondary to accompany the dance. But the sensibility of Bill T. Jones and his really sincere desire to combine art forms rather than just take dance and find ways to dress it up with other mediums makes this different. I believe his love of music and his appreciation of the musicians will set this collaboration apart from what it might have been with another choreographer and another dance company. And for the Chamber Music Society fans, there is the element of hearing repertoire that is part of the canon, and that most of our core audience knows quite well, but hearing it and seeing it in a very different way.
Jones: It is said that dance and music are made for each other. As dancers we know that every performance is different. The air in the room is different. The floor is differ?ent. And as a result, that is what is exciting for the connoisseurs of dance to see how a step is performed night after night or how a series of movements work. The same is true of live music. When a dance work is made, the relationship between the dancers and musicians is unpredictable. With live music it is alive and dramatic. And the dancers can never grow blase. Every time we meet as a group of artists who inhabit the same time and I dare say space, as we are with musi-
cians, there are more reasons to be alert. The event becomes more charged, more resonant and dramatic. That is what we seek from live performance.
Words from the Orion String Quartet:
e chose to program these movements of Ravel's String Quartet (heard on Sunday afternoon's program) for their sensual beauty and vivid imagery. They also offer something different in character from the rest of the program. Music historians have called Ravel's compo?sitional style impressionistic, and it does seem to conjure up a fantastic musical palette in the imagination akin to the great Impressionist painters such as Monet or Renoir. Ravel wrote his only string quartet while he was still a student at the Paris Conservatoire in 1902. Even then he was a consummate composer, writing music with exotic sounds influenced by Claude Debussy's revolutionary work and his own fascination with music and art of other cul?tures. The quartet is in four movements, of which we will be playing the last two. The first movement you will hear is marked Tres lent (very slowly), and it has some of the most exquisite melodies and gorgeous sound textures ever written for quartet. The musical themes are integrated so completely among the four instruments that it is some?times hard to tell where the melody is com?ing from even when you're watching closely. The final movement is marked Vifet agite (agitated). Being around the incredibly skilled and powerfully expressive bodies of our dancing colleagues can be a little intimi?dating, but in this movement, our hands, at least, have a chance to rival the dancers' ath?leticism as we scrub our bows and move our fingers madly on our strings.
Working on this project with Bill T. Jones and each amazingly gifted dancer in his
company has been nothing short of revela?tory. The genius of the choreography and its marvelously artistic realization powerfully illuminates the inner life of the music in ways we had not perceived or imagined before.
Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company, founded as a multicul?tural dance company in 1982, is the product of an 11-year collab?oration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane. It emerged onto the international scene in 1982 with the world premiere of Intuitive Momentum with legendary drummer Max Roach, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Since then, the 10-member Company has performed its ever-enlarging repertoire (currently over 75 works) in over 130 American cities and 30 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Japan, Portugal, Greece, South Africa and the Czech Republic. The Company has taught and performed under the aegis of the US Information Agency in Asia and Southeast Asia. Audiences of approximately 100,000 annually see the Company across the country and around the world.
Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company's work has often been described as a fusion of dance and theater. The reper?toire is highly diverse in subject matter, visual imagery, and length of each dance, ranging from fifteen minutes to two hours. Some of its most celebrated creations are evening-length works, including Last Supper at Uncle Tom's CabinThe Promised Land (1990), premiered as part of the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music; StillHere (1994), premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music; and Mr. Jones's solo production, The Breathing Show (1999).
The Company has received numerous awards, including New York Dance and Performance Awards, "Bessies," for its 1986 Joyce Season, D-Man in the Waters, and for musical scoring and costume design for
Uncle Tom's CabinThe Promised Land. Recently, the Company was nominated for the 1999 Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance and Best New Dance Production for We Set Out Early... Visibility Was Poor. Last year, the Dance Heritage Coalition named Bill T. Jones one of America's Irreplaceable Dance Treasures. Offstage, the company's work has been seen in such documentaries as Uncle Tom's CabinThe Promised Land (Great Performances series), Bill T. Jones: StillHere with Bill Moyers, I'll Make Me a World: A Century of African American Artists, and Free To Dance: The Presence of African-Americans in Modern Dance.
These performances mark Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company's fourth and fifth appearances under UMS auspices. The com?pany made its UMS debut in performance of StillHere in March 1995.
The Chamber Music Society Of Lincoln Center (CMS) is the resi?dent company at Lincoln Center devoted to the outstanding perfor?mance and creation of chamber music. Its pioneering structure a core of distinguished Artist Members augmented by invited guests allows Artistic Director David Shifrin to present concerts of every instrumentation, style and historical period. CMS's wide-ranging activities include not only concerts at Lincoln Center, but also national and international tours, nationally televised broadcasts on Live From Lincoln Center, and regular appearances on National Public Radio's Performance Today.
CMS's core of resident Artist Members numbers 19 musicians. They are: Artistic Director and clarinetist David Shifrin; vio?linists Ani Kavafian, Ida Kavafian, Cho-Liang Lin and Joseph Silverstien, violist Paul Neubauer; cellists Gary Hoffman and Fred Sherry; bassist Edgar Meyer, flutist Ransom Wilson; oboist Stephen Taylor; bassoonist
Milan Turkovic; pianists Lee Luvisi, Anne-Marie McDermott and Andre-Michel Schub; and the Orion String Quartet, CMS's Quartet-in-Residence.

In 1965, as plans for Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts were in the final stages, the distinguished American composer and President of Lincoln Center William Schuman first conceived of an organization dedicated to performing the finest chamber music. This organization, to be housed in its own specially designed recital hall, would take its place among the finest ballet, symphonic and opera companies at Lincoln Center. In 1969, CMS began with 20 concerts; during the current and 34th season, under the artistic directorship of clarinetist David Shifrin, it will present over 100 performances.
As the nation's premiere repertory company for chamber music, CMS strives to bring audiences the finest performances of an extraordinary body of repertoire, dating as far back as the Renaissance and continuing through the centuries to the finest works of our time. Chamber music, like other art forms, is dependent upon the infusion of new works into the literature in order to continue as a dynamic means of artistic expression. CMS has commissioned over 110 new works from a formidable array of composers, including Bruce Adolphe, Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein, William Bolcolm, John Corigliano, George Crumb, Lukas Foss, John Harbison, Alberto Ginastera, Morton Gould, Keith Jarrett, and Bright Sheng. CMS also supports the work of living composers by awarding the Elise L. Stoeger Prize, a cash award given annually to each of two outstanding composers of chamber music.
In keeping with its mandate to reach a
broad audience, CMS presents national and international tours and multi-concert series outside New York. In addition, CMS appears at some of the country's most prestigious music festivals, including the Lincoln Center, Mostly Mozart and Ravinia festivals. CMS has also performed throughout Canada and Mexico, traveled to Australia in 1984 and 1987 and toured Japan in 1989. In May 1996, CMS made its first trip to Israel. The ambitious level of touring activity amounts to over 40 concerts annually outside New York City.
CMS is committed to developing young audiences as well as young artists. School-based educational programs Chamber Music Beginnings, Young Musicians Program, Student Tickets Subsidy Program, Musicians Up Close reach some 11,000 elementary, junior and senior high school students from the tri-state area annually. CMS also presents a family concert series called "Meet the Music!," designed to introduce chamber music to children ages 6-12 and their fami?lies in an engaging style. The Chamber Music Society also offers Pre-Concert Composer Chats. In 1995-1996, CMS launched Chamber Music Society Two, a two-year program showcasing the next generation of world-class chamber musicians and offering
them multi-faceted performance and teach?ing opportunities. Violinists Timothy Fain and Ruggero Allifranchini, violist Hsin-Yun Huang, and cellist Sophie Shao, who are fea?tured during the course of the joint project with the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company, are all current or past members of Chamber Music Society Two and are in demand internationally as soloists and chamber musicians.
CMS's discography ranges from Bach to Zwilich and includes critically acclaimed recordings of Dvorak's Serenade and Quintet, Beethoven's Septet and Serenade, music by Carl Maria von Weber and Walton's Facade with Lynn Redgrave as narrator. Hi-Fi Magazine named CMS's recording of Bach's complete Brandenburg Concertos "one of the best recordings of the year" in 1996. Recent releases include The Complete Chamber Music of Claude Debussy on the Delos label and George Rochberg's Eden: Out of Time and Out of Space. An all-Mendelssohn recording is slated for release during the 0203 season.
These performances mark the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center's ninth and tenth appearances under UMS auspices. The ensemble made its UMS debut in October 1978.
The Orion String Quartet was founded in 1987. The Orion String Quartet is Quartet-in-Residence of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and of the Mannes College of Music. Known for its interpreta?tions of Beethoven, in May of 2000 the Quartet performed all 17 Beethoven quar?tets in a series of free concerts at Alice Tully Hall, with additional outreach activities tak?ing place in the four Boroughs of New York. Presented by the CMS, Beethoven 2000 hon?ored six New York City community arts organizations for their contributions to the lives of children. In addition to its appear?ances with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the quartet performs in the major music centers of the world and has been featured three times on ABC's Good Morning America and on A&E's Breakfast With the Arts.
Members of the Quartet, dedicated to the development of the next generation of musical artists, are faculty members of the Mannes College of Music, as well as of other institutions, where they teach privately, give chamber music classes, and offer coaching programs. They have been faculty members of the Isaac Stern Chamber Music Workshop at Carnegie Hall, the Summer Institute for Advanced Studies in Aspen, and have held summer residencies at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.
For Sony Classical, the Orion has recorded Wynton Marsalis's String Quartet No. 1, commissioned by the Chamber Music Society and premiered by the ensemble. For Arabesque, the group has recorded Dvorak's American String Quartet and Piano Quintet with Peter Serkin and Mendelssohn's Octet with the Guarneri String Quartet.
The Orion String Quartet chose its name from the Orion constellation as a metaphor of the distinctive personality each of its musicians brings to the group in its collective pursuit of musical excellence.
These performances mark the Orion String Quartet's third and fourth appearances under UMS auspices. The ensemble made their UMS debut in November 1996.

blessing the boats is dedicated, with love and gratitude, to my inspirations: Katea Stitt, Maurine Knighton, Claude Johnson, Bill Terry, Sydney Inis and the woman with the cell phone.
There are many people who have made this work possi?ble in many different ways. Some of them influenced the creation and production of blessing the boats, others influenced my treatment and recovery from End Stage Renal Disease. But that is splitting hairs because the work is tied to my recovery. It is a vital part of it. My gratitude is complete and undying.
