he University of Michigan joins th University Musical Society (UMS) in welcoming you to its 125th Anniversary Season. We are proud of the wonderful partnership between our two organizations and of the role of the University as co-sponsor of several events on this season's calendar. In addition to
reflecting the artistic beauty and passion that are integral to the human experience, these jointly sponsored events are also wonderful opportunities for University of Michigan students and faculty to
learn about the creative process and the sources of inspiration that motivate artists and scholars.
Several superb productions will result from our partnership. The current season includes an exciting collaboration of UMS, the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and the University's Center for Russian and East European Studies. This alliance is creating a multidisciplinary festival, Celebrating St. Petersburg, 300 Years of Cultural Brilliance. Among the brilliant ? offerings in the series is Alexander ? Pushkin's Boris Godunov, directed by Declan Donnellan, a Royal Shakespeare Company alumnus. It will be performed in Russian with English supertitles. The University and UMS will also jointly pres?ent an authentic Elizabethan production by Shakespeare's Globe Theatre: the witty comedy Twelfth Night, which will have a week of performances in the Michigan Union Ballroom. The historically accurate
production is presented in association with the 100th Anniversary Celebration of the Michigan Union.
We are delighted to welcome UMS back to Hill Auditorium in time to celebrate its 125th Anniversary with concerts and revelry between January 17-19. Some of the high?lights of the year will include a festive gala dinner full of surprises on January 17, and a rare appearance of the marvelous Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique and the Monteverdi Choir on January 18. The weekend will conclude with the Jazz Divas Summit on January 19, as the University and UMS jointly commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
I want to thank the faculty and staff of the University of Michigan and the University Musical Society for their hard work and dedication in making our partnership a success. The University of Michigan is pleased to support the Univer?sity Musical Society during this exhilarating 0304 season, and we share the goal of making our co-presentations academic and cultural events that benefit the university community and the broadest possible constituency. _____
Mary Sue Coleman
President, University of Michigan
hank you for joining us for this performance during UMS's historic 125th season. We appreciate your support of the performing arts and of UMS, and we hope that we'll see you at more of our programs during this milestone season. Check the complete listing of UMS's 0304 events beginning on p. 27 and on our web-
site at UMS is the oldest university-related per?forming arts presenting organization in the United States. From its founding in 1879 as the Choral Union under
U-M Professor Henry Simmons Frieze to the current day, UMS has sought to bring to the community the very best in the performing arts from around the world. When I think about how UMS has been able to pursue and carry out this commit?ment to excellence for more than a century, six factors come to mind:
1) The incredible support of you, the audience. I place at the very top of this list the outstanding support UMS has received over its entire history from the people of Michigan and northern Ohio. By your faithful attendance and generous financial support -one of our most generous patrons has been a Choral Union Series subscriber for over 60 years -UMS has not only thrived locally but has become one of the leading presenters in the US. Internationally renowned artists and ensembles often tell us following their tours in the US that the Ann Arbor audi-
ence was the best on the tour -in its size, sophistication, and enthusiastic response. Thank you!
2) Our unique relationship with the University of Michigan. Years ago, enlightened leaders of both UM and UMS determined that UMS should be an independent organization, but one with a special affiliation with the University. This unique relationship has enabled us to develop many mutually beneficial programs that serve both the University and the larger community. While UMS does not receive general fund or student-fee support, we have been able to seek and receive special support from the University when we have faced an unanticipated challenge or an extraordinary artistic opportunity. Those who study uni?versitypresenter partnerships have told us that ours with U-M is the most effective in the US. To our most significant, long-time partner, we say thank you!
3) Abundant, high-quality performance venues. How fortunate that we have in a community of our size so many remark?able venues for our performances, includ?ing Hill and Rackham Auditoriums, Power Center, Mendelssohn Theatre, Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, EMU Convocation Center, and the others we use now and have used in the past. Such a diverse array of facilities enables us to provide an appropriate venue for whatever artistic genre we are present?ing. Please join us for the weekend events January 17-19 when UMS returns to the renovated and restored Hill Auditorium.
4) A century of bold impresarios. We need only to be reminded of former UMS President Charles Sink's ability to convince the most famous singer in the world, Enrico Caruso, to perform in Hill Auditorium in 1919 to appreciate the imagination, negoti?ating skills, and chutzpah that characterized the impresarios who led UMS through its first century. The last of this special group was Mr. Gail Rector, who led UMS with great distinction until his retirement in 1987 and who has recently returned from the south to live in Ann Arbor. When you see him at our concerts, please take a moment to thank him for his contributions to UMS. Gail and his predecessors continue to inspire the current UMS team every day as we recall their single-minded determina?tion to bring the very best to Ann Arbor, no matter what!
5) Outstanding volunteers. Put quite simply, UMS could not exist were it not for nearly 700 volunteers who serve UMS now and for the thousands of others who preceded them over the years. Each member of the 150-voice Choral Union, 300-member UMS Usher Corps, 39-member Teacher Advisory Committee, 10-member Student Intern Corps, 46-member Advisory Committee, 63-member Senate, and 34-member Board of Directors is a volun?teer, giving their time and talents to UMS. We are deeply grateful for their dedication and service.
6) Remarkable staff. I am privileged to work with unusually talented, creative, hardworking, and loyal staff colleagues. Frequent turnover is the norm for arts organizations, yet the team of UMS department heads has an average tenure with UMS of 11 years. This is remarkable. Each member of this team -Sara Billmann, Ben Johnson, John Kennard, Michael Kondziolka, and Susan McClanahan -has achieved a measure of national leader?ship in his or her respective areas of expertise. The remainder of the staff is comprised of equally dedicated colleagues who share the management team's commit?ment to serving the mission of UMS. We are pleased to recognize the contributions of UMS's longest serving staff member, Sally Cushing, when she celebrates her 35th anniversary with UMS this fall.
Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or problems. The best place to begin is with our Ticket Office at 734.764.2538. 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, please send me an email message at or call me at 734.647.1174.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President

elcome to the 0304 season! In the
' University Musical Society's 125th season, there is much to celebrate. We can look forward to the St. Petersburg celebration with Valery Gergiev and the Kirov Orchestra, the Globe Theatre's pro?duction of Twelfth Night, and the Israel Philharmonic among many. Most impor-
tantly, Saturday, January 17, 2004 brings an exciting concert that celebrates UMS's return to Hill Auditorium and 125 years of UMS history. Our tradition of bringing
excellent music, theater, and dance to the southeast Michigan community has grown to include education for the whole com?munity -school children, university students, and adults -and the creation of new and exciting works such as those that have come to us through the Royal Shakespeare Company.
The rich cultural history of UMS is one I know you want to continue. Many of you made extraordinary efforts to ensure our future by making an additional gift, or an increased gift, after you learned of our budgetary challenges last spring. We greatly appreciate your support, which helped to keep us on solid financial ground.
I hope you will continue to keep UMS high on your list of philanthropic priorities. If you haven't made a gift before, or haven't made a gift for some while, I hope you will consider doing so. In addition to your annual gift, you may be able to provide for UMS in a more substantial and longer-lasting way, with a gift to endowment or through a trust or bequest arrangement. Susan McClanahan, Director of Develop?ment, would be pleased to talk with you about ways of making your gift that will benefit you as well as UMS. Remember, your gift to UMS ensures the continuation of the brilliant programming and educa?tional activities for future generations.

Discounted Student Tickets
Did you know Since 1990, students have pur?chased over 144,000 tickets and have saved more than $2 million through special UMS student programs! UMS's commitment to affordable stu?dent tickets has permitted thousands to see some of the most important, impressive and influential artists from around the world. For the 0304 sea?son, students may purchase discounted tickets to UMS events in three ways:
1. Each semester, UMS holds a Half-Price Student Ticket Sale, at which students can purchase tickets for any event for 50 off the published price. This extremely popular event draws hundreds of students every fall -last year, students saved over $100,000 by purchasing tickets at the Half-Price Student Ticket Sale!
Be sure to get there early as some performances have limited numbers of tickets available.

hrough an uncompromising commit?ment to Presentation, Education, and the Creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) serves Michigan audiences by bring?ing 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 125 years, strong leadership coupled with a devoted com?munity has placed UMS in a league of interna?tionally-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 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
Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
and world music performers, and opera and theater. Through educational endeavors, com?missioning 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 70 performances 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 and Ypsilanti.
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 organi?zation that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foun?dation and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.
hroughout its 125-year history, the UMS Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distin?guished 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 performances of large-scale works for chorus and orchestra. Eleven 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 Meadow Brook for subscription performances of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, John Adams' Harmonium, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms'

Led by interim conductor Jerry Blackstone, the Choral Union will open its current season with performances of Verdi's Requiem with the DSO in September. In December the chorus
will present its 125th series of annual perform?ances of Handel's Messiah. The Choral Union's season will conclude with a performance of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience in the newly renovated Hill Auditorium.
The Choral Union's 0203 season included 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. The Choral Union's sea?son concluded in March with a pair of magnifi?cent French choral works: Honegger's King David, accompanied by members of the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, and Durufle's mystical Requiem, accompanied by internation?ally renowned organist Janice Beck.
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 theater favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadow Brook. The 72-voice Concert Choir drawn from the full chorus has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Solennelle, 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.

Power Center
'he Power Center for the Performing Arts was
bred from a realization that the University of Michigan had no adequate proscenium-stage theater 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 built 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 the?ater." The Powers were immediately interested, realizing that state and federal government were unlikely to provide financial support for the construction of a new theater.
Opening in 1971 with the world premiere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by Truman Capote), the Power Center achieves the seemingly contradictory combination of providing a soaring interior space with a unique level of intimacy. Architectural features include two large spiral staircases leading from the orchestra level to the balcony and the well-known mirrored glass panels on the exterior. No seat in the Power Center is more than 72 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.
The Power Center seats approximately 1,400 people.
Rackham Auditorium
Fifty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented in an assortment of venues including University Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium, Newberry Hall and 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 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 ambi?tious ever given to higher-level education, is the fact that neither of the Rackhams ever attended the University of Michigan.
Designed by architect William Kapp and architectural sculptor Corrado Parducci, Rackham Auditorium was quickly recognized as the ideal venue for chamber music. In 1941, the Musical Society presented its first chamber music festival with the Musical Art Quartet of New York performing three concerts in as many days, and the current Chamber Arts Series was born in 1963. Chamber music audiences and artists alike appreciate the intimacy, beauty and fine acoustics of the 1,129-seat auditorium, which has been the location for hundreds of chamber music concerts throughout the years.
Michigan Theater
The historic Michigan Theater opened January 5,1928 at the peak of the vaudeville movie 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 addition, which also included expanded restroom facili?ties for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000 and the balcony and backstage restorations have been completed.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In June 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appointed 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 to more than 2,800 today. The present church seats 900 people and has ample free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splendid 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 contemplation of sacred a cap-pella choral music and early music ensembles.
Crisler Arena
Crisler Arena, home to the Michigan Wolverine basketball teams, stands as a tribute to the great Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler, Michigan's third all-time winning football coach. Crisler served 10 years as Michigan's football coach (1938-1947) and 27 years as athletic director (1941-1968) of the University. The arena was designed by Dan Dworksky under the architec?tural firm of K.C. Black & C.L. Dworsky and opened in 1968. While serving as a site of Big Ten Conference championship events, Crisler has also played host to popular acts such as Pearl Jam, Bill Cosby, the Grateful Dead, and even Elvis Presley during his final concert tour. In 2002, UMS presented its first concert in Crisler Arena, the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra Christmas Concert. The popular ensemble returns for a repeat performance on Friday, December 5.
The facility has a capacity of 13,609.

All-Night Vigil (Vespers), Op. 37 -
Sergei Rachmaninoff
Born April 1, 1873 in Semyonovo, Russia I
Died March 28, 1943 in Beverly Hilb, California
Sergei Rachmaninoff, the last great Romantic poet of the piano, was a deeply spiritual person who attended Russian Orthodox services regu?larly, both before and after his emigration from Russia. He was primarily a secular composer and wrote only three major religious works: the "concerto for chorus" The Theotokos, Ever-Vigilant in Prayer (1893), The Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (1910), and the All-Night Vigil (1915).
Unlike in the West, the idea of writing origi?nal music based on sacred chant was relatively new in Russia. It wasn't until the 1880s that the Moscow Synodal School developed what musi?cologist-editor Vladimir Morosan describes as "a first-rate choral ensemble that embodied the highest artistic and professional standards." Inspired in part by this excellent group, some of the most important composers in the country turned to sacred music for the first time. Rachmaninoff's mentor Piotr Tchaikovsky led the way with his own settings of the Liturgy (1878) and the Vigil (1882).
Several of Rachmaninoff's former class?mates at the Moscow Conservatory had become church musicians, and they helped Rachmaninoff master the intricacies of Orthodox chant and liturgy. The challenge lay in respecting the traditional melodies, their style and liturgical function while at the same time adding that elusive something called a "personal touch."
The All-Night Vigil (Vsenoshchnoye bdeniye) is sung in the Orthodox Church every Saturday night and on evenings before feast days. It com?bines what were originally two holy offices, Vespers and Matins (for this reason, the English title usually given to Rachmaninoff's work, Vespers, is not entirely accurate). Each of these offices consists of a number of psalms, hymns and canticles prescribed by the liturgy. By and large, Rachmaninoff stayed close to the liturgi-
cal requirements, but there are a few irregulari?ties; as a result, the Vigil has been performed mainly in concert and only occasionally in church.
The language of the work is Church Slavonic, an archaic form of Russian. Consistent with tradition, Rachmaninoff set the sacred words in a homophonic style that makes the text always easy to follow. The traditional melodies used belong to several different styles within Orthodox chant. Movements 2 and 15 are based on the so-called "Greek chant," a recitative style not directly connected to the Greek Orthodox Church but rather developed in this form in Russia during the 17th century. Movements 8, 9, and 12-14 are marked "znamenny chant," the old chant tradition as preserved in a special musical notation over the centuries. Movements 4 and 5 come from the so-called "Kiev chant," which, in the 17th century, introduced new variants of traditional znamenny melodies. In the remaining movements, Rachmaninoff offers what he called "counterfeits," original melodies written in the traditional style.
Textually, movements 1-3, 5, 7-8, and 11 are from the Bible -either from Psalms or, in two cases, from Luke (the two canticles known in Latin as Nunc dimittis and Magnificat). The other movements are from the Orthodox prayer book. In all movements, Rachmaninoff displays extraordinary sensitivity to the sacred words. He responded to certain key phrases with tim-bral contrasts (sopranos and altos vs. tenors and basses; solos vs. the full choir) or with choice harmonies that occasionally break up the generally prevalent pure diatonicism (white keys only) of the texture. Rachmaninoff also made generous use of the fine bassi profondi he could count on in the Synodal Choir -the bass part frequently descends to low C (and occasionally to the even lower B-flat) to magical effect.
The Ail-Night Vigil was premiered by the Synodal Choir, under the direction of Nikolai Danilin, on March 10, 1915. By then Russia was deeply embroiled in World War I, having just suffered a crushing defeat from the Germans by the Masurian Lakes. This no doubt added fur-
thcr poignancy to the reception of the music, which was enthusiastic. As one of the singers later recalled: "Despite the rule that prohibited applause at performances of sacred music, following the final chord of the Vigil the audi?ence burst into tumultuous applause. Only Rachmaninoff returned out onto the empty stage [to acknowledge the audience], returning backstage with a twig of white lilac."
Program note by Peter Laki.
__he St. Petersburg State Academic
Capella, Russia's oldest choir, has an unparalleled history among institu?tions of its kind. Initially named the Tsar's Singing Clerics, it was estab?lished in 1479 by Tsar Ivan III as the tsar's pri?vate choir, responsible for singing services in the newly constructed Cathedral of the Dormition in the Moscow Kremlin. In their time, both Ivan the Terrible and Peter the Great sang in the choir.
With the founding of the new city of St. Petersburg in 1703, the Court Choir, as it was now known, relocated to Tsar Peter's "window to Europe," and in 1717, a contingent of the ensemble accompanied Peter the Great on his travels to Poland, France, Germany, and Holland.
Empress Elizabeth, the younger daughter of Peter the Great, married a Ukrainian bass singer in the Court Choir named Alexei Razumovsky, who encouraged the Empress to bring more singers from Ukraine. In 1763, Empress Catherine the Great began inviting Western musicians to St. Petersburg to work with the Court Choir. On January 1, 1837, Mikhail Glinka, considered by many to be the first great Russian national composer, was appointed Kapellmeister of the Capella.
Following the Russian Revolution of 1917, the combined choir and orchestra gave their last concert for many years on November 8,1918, with a performance of the "Internationale" (the official anthem of Communism and Socialism) and the Mozart Requiem at the Smolny Palace.
The following years brought several changes, including the addition of female choir members and the renaming of the ensemble to the People's Academic Chorus. Many Soviet com?posers wrote numerous choral works for the ensemble during this era, however, most sacred works ceased to be performed. In 1928, the Capella made its last major tour to the West prior to World War II, traveling to Lithuania, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. During the War, between October 1941 and July 1943 alone, the Capella gave some 500 concerts in support of the Russian war effort. Following the war, the ensemble gave many distinguished pre?mieres of works by Shostakovich, Kabalevsky, and Prokofiev under the great conductor Yevgeny Mravinsky.
The 1974 appointment of Vladislav Chernushenko as artistic director ushered in a new era of artistic advances. In 1982, Rachmaninoff's masterpiece, the Vespers, Op. 37 was performed in its entirety in the composer's homeland for the first time. Under Mr. Chernushenko, the choir began to tour abroad again, and beginning in 1976, it made a number of recordings of Russian sacred music, the first being a recording of excerpts from Tchaikovsky's Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom that sold several million copies.
Tonights performance marks the St. Petersburg State Academic Capella Choir's UMS debut.
ladislav Chernushenko's illustrious career as a conductor and educator includes leadership of two of Russia's r oldest professional musical institutions:
the St. Petersburg State Academic Capella and the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory of St. Petersburg. Born in 1936 in Leningrad, Mr. Chernushenko received his musical educa?tion at the Capella's Choir College and the Leningrad Conservatory, earning advanced degrees in operatic and symphonic conducting. In 1962, Mr. Chenushenko founded the Leningrad Chamber Choir, which he headed for 17 years, garnering international acclaim.
In 1974, Mr. Chernushenko was named the artistic director of the St. Petersburg State Academic Capella. Under his energetic leader?ship, the Capella regained its reputation as one of the world's finest choirs. One of his principal accomplishments was the restoration, after years of ideological suppression, of Russia's sacred musical heritage to the Capella's reper?toire. For the past fifteen years, the music of Georgi Sviridov, Russian's most prominent contemporary composer, has also occupied a special place in the choir's repertoire.
In 1979, Mr. Chernushenko became head of Russia's first conservatory, the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory of St. Petersburg. In addition to his duties as a conductor and administrator, he is active as a lecturer, master class clinician, and competition adjudicator, and has been bestowed with several of Russia's highest musical honors.
Tonight's performance marks Vladislav Chernushenko's UMS debut.

21st Performance of the 125th Annual Season
Ninth Annual World Series
The photographing or sound recording of this concert or possession of any device for such photographing or sound recording is prohibited.
This performance is supported by Prue and Ami Rosenthal. Additional support provided by media sponsor Detroit Jewish News.

hava Alberstein is undoubtedly Israel's most accomplished singer, ' named the most important female musician in the country's history by Israel's largest daily newspaper. Of her nearly 50 recordings released since the late 1960s, a dozen of the records have gone gold, six platinum, and one triple platinum. Ms. Alberstein is Israel; her development as an artist mirrors Israel's development as a country; her growing pains are Israel's growing pains. Ms. Alberstein and Israel are even the same age (both recently turned 50) and they both share a tiny but powerful stature.
But Ms. Alberstein sees herself as much a singer of the world as just a singer of her beloved country. "Even though I have lived in Israel nearly my entire life, I am constantly questioning my place in the world," says Ms. Alberstein. "Maybe this searching comes from being an artist, maybe it comes from being a Jew. I'm not really sure."
This bittersweet tension between the national and the universal is evident in all of her record?ings. They range from tender love songs to defi?ant songs about peace and oppression. There are prayerful songs celebrating the beauty of the human form and more melancholy songs about loss, poverty, and solitude.
Ms. Alberstein recently released The Well, an album of Yiddish poems she transformed into folk songs, with the renowned klezmer group the Klezmatics. "In Israel, you would be hard-pressed to find anyone today composing and singing in Yiddish," said Klezmatics lead singer Lorin Sklamberg. "Some people still see Yiddish as the language of soft Jews who can't protect themselves. But Chava understands the joy and depth of the language." i
Yiddish was the mother-tongue of Ms. Alberstein's family in the small town of Szczecin, Poland, where Chava was born. Her family moved to Israel when she was only four-years old, but Ms. Alberstein says she has never totally lost the feeling of being a stranger.
"No matter where I am, even if it's in my own country, I feel like a bit of a guest," she said. "People can appreciate this today, because they move around so much. Every country you go to in the world is filled with so-called 'for?eigners.'"
Ms. Alberstein has released more than 40 albums in Hebrew, six of which have been awarded the Kinor David prize, Israel's equiva?lent of the US Grammy. She has also released seven albums in Yiddish and an English album of standards ranging from Gershwin to Lennon and McCartney.
This evening's performance marks Chava Alberstein's UMS debut.

This piece includes 35 musicians on stage and features the Kliine instrument as well as the M'Balax -the rhythm section played by the Lamb and the Meung Meung.
Les Rosettes
Doudou N'Diaye Rose founded this company of female percussion artists 30 years ago. The piece enlists 20 musicians on stage and features a call-and-response directed by Doudou N'Diaye Rose. Instruments used are Sabars and the M'Balax rhythm section (featuring Lamb and Meung Meung).
This piece includes 35 musicians on stage including a ladies' chorus. The movement features the following instruments: Saouroubas, Assicots, and Bougarabous.
The Sabars is Doudou N'Diaye Rose's most famous instrument. This piece features Mr. Rose with his entire ensemble.
With 35 musicians on stage, this piece features the Sabars, Meung Meung, Lamb, N'Der, Gorom Babass, Saouroubas, Khine, Assicots, and Bougarabous.
nder the direction of Doudou N'Diaye Rose, the Drummers of West Africa are not only the most renowned drum ensemble of West Africa but are one of the most revered percussion ensembles in the world. The Drummers, all members of Mr. Rose's family, have toured the capitals of Europe and South America to critical acclaim and were recently the opening attraction of the 50th Annual Cannes Film Festival.
Doudou N'Diaye Rose, the chief drum major of Dakar, Senegal, is a living legend. Although his family did not want him to pursue music, he was fascinated as a child by the magic of the
drum. Over the years he learned all of the finer points of percussion, becoming the greatest drummer of his country. Both a guardian of tradition and an untiring innovator, this virtu?oso percussionist is also a true conductor, just as the great conductors of symphony orchestras.
Mr. Rose has undertaken an enormous amount of research, met the greatest poet-musicians of West Africa, and has meticulously catalogued the innumerable rhythms that punctuate the life and ceremonies of Senegalese society. He knows the power of traditional rhythms and respects the strict conditions under which they should be interpreted. However, he also experiments with new instru?mental techniques, has considerably enlarged the size of the groups that he conducts (up to 100 drummers), and composes works of power and virtuosity. Mr. Rose has also introduced his daughters and granddaughters to the art of per?cussion and formed a group of female drum?mers, Les Rosettes, a revolutionary concept at the time of their formation. Les Rosettes have become revered instrumentalists in their own right, appearing on stages across Europe.
For the last 15 years, Mr. Rose has experienced international attention and admiration. He has traveled internationally performing and collab?orating with artists including the Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel, and the late Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie. All forms of music interest him, and he continues to hold the opinion that natu?ral rhythms and tempos are intrinsically found in composed music regardless of genre.
Doudou N'Diaye Rose also loves to meet the public and share his expertise. He leads percus?sion workshops in Japan, France, Africa, and the US, where he brought his company for an extensive tour in 2000. He goes to schools and suburbs to spread his love of rhythm, of music, and of meeting and sharing with people, always acting as a true cultural ambassador for his country and an icon of his art form.
Tonight's performance marks Doudou N'Diaye Rose's second appearance under UMS auspices. Mr. Rose made his UMS debut in February 2000. Tonight's performance also marks Les Rosettes's UMS debut.

23rd Performance of the 125th Annual Season
Tenth Annual Jazz Series
The photographing or sound recording of this concert or possession of any device for such photo?graphing or sound record?ing is prohibited.
Presented with support from JazzNet, a program of the Nonprofit Finance Fund, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Additional support provided by media sponsors WEMU, WDET, and Metro Times.

Large print programs are available upon request.
redited by many musicians with antici?pating the popularity of "world music" as early as the late 1950s, Charles Lloyd describes his music as having "danced on many shores." From the moment he first came to prominence, Mr. Lloyd began to take audiences on journeys that traversed enormous distances. His compositions have punctuated the post-bop period, embraced the traditional music of a host of world cultures, and ciphered the psychedelic 1960s with avant-garde improvisation.
Mr. Lloyd was born in Memphis in 1938 of African, Cherokee, Mongolian, and Irish descent. He was given his first saxophone at the age of nine and grew up riveted to radio broad?casts by Charlie Parker, Coleman Hawkins, Billie Holiday, and Duke Ellington. As a teenag?er Mr. Lloyd performed with saxophonist George Coleman and was a sideman for blues greats Johnny Ace, Howlin' Wolf, and B.B. King.
Mr. Lloyd moved to Los Angeles in 1956 to earn his Master's degree in music at USC. While his days were spent in academia, he spent nights in LA's jazz clubs playing with Ornette Coleman, Billy Higgins, Charlie Haden, Bobby Hutcherson, and other leading West Coast jazz artists.
In 1960 Mr. Lloyd became music director of Chico Hamilton's group, and in 1965 he formed his own quartet, a brilliant ensemble that intro?duced pianist Keith Jarrett, drummer Jack Dejohnette, and bassist Cecil McBee. The resulting album, Forest Flower (1966), made history as one of the first jazz recordings to sell one million copies, and the album became a stunning crossover success that appealed to a popular mass market and gained heavy airplay on FM radio. The Quartet was the first jazz group to appear at the famed Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco.
The Quartet was invited to tour the world in 1967 and its performances in the Eastern Bloc nations of Europe often marked the first time audiences had heard an American jazz group live. At the peak of the Cold War in 1967, Mr. Lloyd made headlines once again, when the Quartet became the first jazz group from the
US to play in the USSR by invitation of the Soviet people rather than through government sponsorship.
In 1989, seven years after he had made his last album, Charles Lloyd returned to the studio to record for ECM Records. The project marked the beginning of a new wave of his composi?tions and recordings. The death of Mr. Lloyd's long time friend and musical collaborator, drummer Billy Higgins, in May 2001, marked the end of an era in his musical journey. Hyperion With Higgins was released later in the year as a poignant reminder of the unique rela?tionship between these two men. In the spring of 2004 ECM will release the last recording that Charles Lloyd made with Billy Higgins three months before Mr. Higgins died. It will be accompanied by a DVD documentary of the meeting between these two men.
Tonight's performance marks Charles Lloyd and the Charles Lloyd Quintet's UMS debuts.
orn 1944 in Port Chester, NY, John Abercrombie grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut, and began playing the guitar at the age of fourteen.
__ An offer to tour with organist
Johnny Hammond led to going on the road for weeks at a time, playing such spots as Count Basic's Lounge and the Club Baron in Harlem. In 1969, following graduation from Boston's Berklee College of Music, Mr. Abercrombie decided to head south in hopes of breaking into the New York music scene. In the next few years he developed into one of New York's most in-demand session musicians. He recorded with Gil Evans, Gato Barbieri, and Barry Miles, and became a regular musician in Chico Hamilton's group.
It was as the guitarist in Billy Cobham's band that John Abercrombie first began attracting widespread attention among the general public. Shortly thereafter, at the Montreux Festival, Mr. Abercrombie ran into ECM Records' Manfred Eicher who invited him to record an album for the record label. Gateway was released in November, 1975; it marked the first collabora?tive effort of Mr. Abercrombie with Jack Dejohnette and bassist Dave Holland.
Mr. Abercrombie's affinity for jazz standards complements his role as an active clinician and teacher. While preparing for a Harvard lecture, where he surveyed the history of jazz guitar, he explained, "When I'm playing tunes like 'Autumn Leaves' or 'Stella By Starlight,' as much as I've played those tunes over the years, I still enjoy playing them. And because I know them so well, I'm very free with them. I'm just as free with them as when I'm playing no chords at all. That, to me, is free jazz."
John Abercrombie possesses a unique voice as a jazz guitarist combining evolving technolo?gies with a tradition well represented by jazz standards.
Tonight's performance marks John Abercrombie's UMS debut.
eralded as "one of the most original and in-demand musicians of her generation" by Jazz Times and "the most versatile jazz musicians to emerge in the past decade" by Atlantic Monthly, pianist Geri Allen is a true standout of her generation.
Geri Allen was born in Detroit on June 12, 1957. She was studying piano by age seven and went on to study at the Jazz Development Workshop under the tutelage of trumpeter Marcus Belgrave, drummer Roy Brooks and pianist Harold McKinney. She also attended Detroit's famous magnet music school, Cass Technical High School. After receiving a BA from Howard University, Ms. Allen went on to earn a Masters in Ethnomusicology from the University of Pittsburgh.
In the early-1980s, Ms. Allen quickly became an influential player on the New York jazz scene. In 1994, she recorded with hip-hopfunk bassist, Me'shell Ndgeocello, and the following year was crowned with a Lady of Soul award for "Jazz Album of the Year" at the first Soul Train Awards. In 1996, she graced the big screen, playing the role of pianist Mary Lou Williams in the Robert Altman film, Kansas City. A for?mer member of the Black Rock Coalition, she was the first woman to receive Denmark's pres?tigious JAZZPAR Prize, and participated in Ornette Coleman's long anticipated Sound Museum. Soon afterwards, Ms. Allen composed a piece commissioned by choreographer Donald Byrd entitled Jazz Train.
Geri Allen first performed with Charles Lloyd at Lincoln Center in 1996 as part of a benefit concert for master drummer Billy Higgins. Over the years that followed she occasionally performed with Mr. Lloyd for special events. After the events of 911 he asked her to join him for his acclaimed recording Lift Every Voice.
Tonight's performance marks Geri Allen's UMS debut.
ric Harland seems destined for great?ness. At the age of 25 his accomplish?ments include performances and recordings with a long list of "who's who" in the world of jazz including Terence Blanchard, Joe Henderson, Greg Osby, Ravi Coltrane, Betty Carter, Stefon Harris, Jason Moran, and McCoy Tyner. In 1998 he appeared on Downbeat Reader's Poll in the "Best New Talent" category. iH
Mr. Harland left his hometown of Houston, Texas, to attend the Manhattan School of Music. It wasn't long before word of his talent and sen?sitivity on the drums spread, and in 1995 he recorded with guitarist Rodney Jones. In 1996 he toured with Greg Osby, which lead to his working with Betty Carter and Jazz Ahead until her death in 1998. At that time an invitation arrived to join Terence Blanchard's group. During this period he recorded three albums with Mr. Blanchard and participated on the soundtracks for Original Sin, Bamboozle, Summer of Sam, Glitter, Jim Brown, and Bojangles.
During the summer of 2002 he toured with McCoy Tyner's band, and is on Mr. Tyner's current release Land of the Giants.
In the fall of 2002 Charles Lloyd asked Eric Harland to join his band.
Tonight's performance marks Eric Harland's UMS debut.
obert Hurst is a highly respected and well-recognized composer, bassist, educator, and recording artist. His cultivation into a membership of talented musicians from around the world was fostered by lengthy tours and Grammy Award-winning recordings featuring Charles Lloyd, Wynton Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, Terence Blanchard, Tony Williams, Branford Marsalis, Nicholas Payton, Sting, and the legendary Pharoah Sanders.
Mr. Hurst has won four Grammy Awards as well as international critical acclaim for his musicianship. Mr. Hurst has also enjoyed
directing, arranging, and composing for NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for nearly a decade. He has scored original music for several films, including The Wood, an MTV Paramount Production; performed music for Ocean's Eleven; and scored music for Brown Sugar, by Fox Films.

elicving her twin brother Sebastian to have drowned during a shipwreck, which she survived, the young Viola [ is stranded on the mysterious coast _ of Illyria. Disguised as the page Cesario, Viola enters the service of the Duke Orsino, who is madly in love with the Countess Olivia. When delivering a love-letter on Orsino's behalf, Viola is horrified when the Countess falls helplessly in love with her, dis?guised as she is as a boy and going by the name of "Cesario." The confusion deepens as we real?ize that Sebastian has also survived, and is at large in a hostile land, quarrelling with his mar?itime savior, Antonio. As Viola secretly harbors a growing affection for Orsino, elsewhere in Olivia's dwellings the "twelfth night" festivities after Christmas are being enjoyed to the full by the Countess's roguish cousin, Sir Toby Belch.
With a surfeit of cakes, ale and uproarious misdemeanors, Belch and his friends -Olivia's hapless suitor Sir Andrew Aguecheek, her "allowed fool" Feste, and gentlewoman Maria -incur the wrath of the steward Malvolio. Appalled at Malvolio's puritanical disapproval, the pranksters plot their revenge by writing him a letter, purporting to come from Olivia, and cryptically confessing undying love for her loyal steward. As a token that her affections are returned, Malvolio, utterly love-struck by the news, is implored to attend his lady smiling, and sport?ing a set of cross garters and yellow stockings.
Upon Malvolio's appearing in this manner, Olivia assumes her steward is mad. Pretending to heed her fears, Belch inflicts the ultimate indignity by binding him up and locking him in a "dark room," attended by Feste disguised as the raving preacher "Sir Topas."
Meanwhile, Sir Andrew too is falling foul of Sir Toby's high jinks. With the help of Fabian, another of his motley associates, Belch con?trives for Aguecheek to confront Viola in a duel for Olivia's affections. As the duel begins, an uncomprehending Antonio draws his sword on Sir Andrew in defense of his co-combatant
Viola, whom he mistakes for his friend Sebastian. Seeking to exact revenge on Viola for his injuries, Sir Andrew gets more than he and a drunken Belch bargained for when they mistakenly inflict vengeance on Sebastian. Interrupting the scuffle, Olivia unknowingly takes the hand of Sebastian, assuming him to be Cesario....
he Globe Theatre is a faithful recon?struction of the open-air playhouse built in 1599, where Shakespeare worked and in which many of his greatest plays were performed. The first theater burned down in 1613. A second theater was built on the same site, but this was pulled down in 1642 and never rebuilt.
The project to reconstruct the Globe was initiated by the Chicago-born actor and direc?tor Sam Wanamaker, who spent decades raising both funds and public interest in Shakespeare's most celebrated theater. The Globe is now one of the best-loved attractions in London and occupies a place at the center of a range of exciting artistic and educational activities.
The theater season runs from May to September at the Globe, with productions of Shakespeare, his contemporaries, and modern authors. The Globe has also welcomed compa?nies from overseas to share the impact Shakespeare's plays have had worldwide.
Each year the Globe Theatre Company rediscovers the dynamic relationship between the audience and the actor in this unique build?ing. It has also taken productions to Middle Temple Hall, the finest Elizabethan interior in London and where the first recorded perform?ance of Twelfth Night took place in 1602. This production was revived as the 400th anniversary production of the play in 2002.
Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition provides an engaging and informed introduction to the theater of Shakespeare's time and the London in which he lived and worked. In the vast UnderGlobe beneath the theater, every aspect of Shakespeare's work is brought imaginatively to life using a combination of modern technology
and traditional crafts. Against the historical background of Elizabethan Bankside -the playground of Elizabethan London -the roles of actor, musician, and audience are explored. A visit to the exhibition usually includes a guided tour of today's working theater.
Globe Education shares discoveries made at the Globe with students, teachers and members of the public of all ages and nationalities through a range of on-site workshops, distance learning programs and seasonal events. Every year, more than 50,000 students take part in educational activities, many of them tailor-made to the specific needs of the group, from primary school to postgraduate level. Each year, Shakespeare's Globe provides approximately ten distinct educational programs for universities throughout the US.
This production marks the Globe Theatres UMS debut.

case Auditorium is a classic concert hall on the campus of Eastern Michigan University. It is located on College Place at the intersection of West Cross Street in Ypsilanti.
Originally built in 1914, Pease Auditorium has been renovated three times: in the late 1950s, in 1960 to accommodate installation of an AeolianSkinner organ and most recently in 1995 when complete interior refurbishing was completed and an addition was constructed. The auditorium also was made completely barrier free.
Pease Auditorium can seat up to 1,541 concertgoers.
U-M Sports Coliseum
