has become a legend and jazz icon. In October of 2003, the Library of Congress declared Dave Brubeck a "Living Legend" to honor his creative contributions to American life. In 1999, in recog?nition of his ongoing contribution to jazz, he was designated a "Jazz Master" by the National Endowment for the Arts. He has also received the National Medal of the Arts. His musical contribu?tions as both pianist and composer have been honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. These are but a few of the honors bestowed upon this elder statesman of jazz, whose career spans six decades.
Youngest of three musical brothers, Dave Brubeck was born in Concord, California on December 6, 1920. His father was a cattle ranch?er and his mother a pianist and music teacher. He entered the College of the Pacific, Stockton, Cali?fornia, as a premed student with the idea of becoming a veterinarian and returning to the ranch. Working his way through school as a jazz pianist in local clubs, he decided to forsake the cattle business and changed his college major to music. In 1942 he enlisted in the Army where he served under Patton in the European Theater.
Upon his discharge in 1946, Mr. Brubeck stud?ied composition with Darius Milhaud, who encouraged him to pursue a career in both jazz and in composition.
The Dave Brubeck Trio with Cal Tjader and Ron Crotty cut their first records in San Francisco in 1949 and won "Best Small Combo" awards in
both the Critics' and the Readers' Polls in Down Best magazine. When the Dave Brubeck Quartet (with alto saxophonist Paul Desmond) was formed in 1951, their distinctive harmonic approach employed by Mr. Brubeck and Desmond and the Quartet's improvised contrapuntal choruses caused a stir in the jazz world. The ensemble won the first jazz poll conducted by The Pittsburgh Courier and repeatedly won top honors in the Down Beat Readers' Polls. By 1954, Dave Brubeck's popularity was such that his picture appeared on the cover of Time Magazine and his recordings were being played throughout the world. His album Time Out and hits including "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk" went gold, a rare feat for an instrumental jazz record?ing.
In November 2002, the Austrian government awarded Mr. Brubeck the highest award given in the arts, the Honor Cross for Science and Art. For?mer recipients include Seiji Ozawa, Riccardo Muti, and Leonard Bernstein. In November 2004 he was awarded an honorary doctorate in Sacred Theology by the University of Fribourg in Switzerland. The University of the Pacific has honored him by the establishment of The Brubeck Institute dedicated to the promulgation of contemporary music of all styles, with an emphasis on jazz and improvisa?tion.
Dave Brubeck recently celebrated his 85th birthday in December 2005 in a concert with the London Symphony Orchestra, a fiveyear tradition that began on his 70th birthday.
Russell Gloyd has established an incredi?bly diverse career as a conductor, pro?ducer, and arranger. Since 1976 he has been associated with Dave Brubeck and has con?ducted the many symphonic and choral appear?ances of the Dave Brubeck Quartet throughout the US and around the world.
As a guest conductor, Mr. Gloyd has appeared with orchestras across North America and has
conducted and recorded with some of the premiere choral organizations in the US. Internationally, he has conducted and recorded with symphonies in Ger?many, Russia, Scotland, the Netherlands, Italy, Switzer?land, Brazil, South Africa, and Poland. He made his London debut with the
London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) in 1989, and has conducted the ensemble on seven other occa?sions. In June 2004, Mr. Gloyd was one of seven conductors participating in the 100th Anniversary concert of the LSO, which was attended by Queen Elizabeth II. In 1995 he made his debut in Vienna conducting the European premiere of the Brubeck Christmas cantata La Fiesta de la Posada, and returned in 2000 for the Viennese premiere of the Brubeck mass To Hope! A Celebration. In April 2003, he was back in Vienna conducting the Euro?pean premiere of Dave Brubeck's Easter oratorio Beloved Son. Mr. Gloyd has made several tours with the Bach Collegium of Munich. Since 1996 he has been a regular guest conductor with the Kammerorchester Schloss Werneck throughout Germany, Switzerland, and The Netherlands. In November 2004, Mr. Gloyd conducted the Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg in performances of To Hope! in Salzburg at the Festspielhaus, and in Vienna at St. Stephan's Cathedral. In April 2005, he made his debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Russell Gloyd has conducted the ItalianSwiss Radio Orchestra of Lugano, Switzerland, on three separate occasions, each one being televised live throughout Europe, and has live CD recordings on Telarc International, MusicMasters, and LSO Live
with the London Symphony Orchestra. In May 2002, Mr. Gloyd returned to London for record?ings with the London Symphony at famed Abbey Road Studios preparing a twoCD set for Telarc entitled Classical Brubeck. In January 2004, Naxos Records released the recording of Brubeck's The Gates Of Justice conducted by Mr. Gloyd.
As a producer, Russell Gloyd has been actively involved in all aspects of electronic media. In addi?tion to working with several major record labels, he has produced soundtracks for feature films as well as television productions.
When Britishborn Randy Jones first came to the US, he received immediate critical recognition. He played with such jazz greats as Gerry Mulligan, Chet Baker, Milt Jackson, Bill Watrous, and Harry James. He was invited to join the Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1979 and has remained with Mr. Brubeck ever since.
Randy Jones started work as a drummer at the age of 16, touring Germany with an English rockandroll group. When the opportunity came to play jazz with the Maynard Ferguson Big Band, which was then based in England, he jumped at the chance. During the six years he was with Fer?guson's band, he made numerous recordings and worked with such singing stars as Cleo Laine, Tony Bennett, and Billy Eckstine.
Mr. Jones has recorded many albums with the Quartet on Telarc International, MusicMasters, and Concord Jazz labels. He has toured with the Dave Brubeck Quartet throughout the US, Cana

da, Europe, and Japan, and has appeared with them on numerous television shows in the US, Japan, and Europe. His most recent recordings for Telarc are Classical Brubeck, Park Avenue South, and London Flat, London Sharp; and for Naxos, 77ie Gafes of Justice.
A native of Buffalo, New York, where he resides, Bobby Militello has been performing with Dave Brubeck since 1982 in both choral and symphonic settings as well as jazz concerts and festivals throughout the US, Canada, and Europe.
Mr. Militello has been featured on many Brubeck recordings and television appearances. His most recent albums with the Dave Brubeck Quartet are The Crossing, So What's New, The 40th Anniversary Tour of the U.K. (most of which was recorded live at Royal Festival Hall in London in 1998), Live in the U.K. and U.S.A., Classical Brubeck (recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra), Park Avenue South, and the most recent Dave Brubeck Quartet release, London Flat, London Sharp.
His adaptability and sensitivity to all facets of music are evident in the wide spectrum of music he has performed with Mr. Brubeck, ranging from Mr. Brubeck's mass To Hope! to straightahead jazz heard on the Late Night and Nightshift CDs recorded live at the Blue Note club in New York City. Mr. Militello has appeared several times with the London Symphony Orchestra and is featured on the LSO Live recording from Dave Brubeck's 80th birthday concert.
The most recent member of the Dave Brubeck Quartet is bassist Michael Moore, an acknowl?edged master of his instrument, and leader of his own duo and trio that features the bass as a solo instrument. Michael Moore has brought new recognition to an instrument once primarily regarded as a timekeeper.
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Michael Moore's musical training began at the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. After joining the Woody Herman Band at the age of 20, Mr. Moore became an important player in the New York jazz scene. In the next few years he recorded and per?formed with the "Who's Who" of jazz. John S.
Wilson of the New York Times described him as "one of the most consistently brilliant bassists in recent history."
Mr. Moore has recorded four albums thus far with Dave Brubeck: Classical Brubeck, recorded at Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra; Park Avenue South, The Gates of Jus?tice, and the current Telarc release, London Flat, London Sharp.
Chris Brubeck first distinguished himself as a jazz musician, performing and recording with his father, Dave Brubeck. He plays bass, trombone, piano, guitar, and sings, and, in the past few decades, has earned international acclaim as a composer, performer, and leader of his own ensembles. On stage, Mr. Brubeck's irrepress?ible enthusiasm is matched by his fluid command of jazz, blues, folk, funk, pop, and classical musical styles. An awardwinning composer, he is clearly tuned into the pulse of contemporary music.
Chris Brubeck is an alumnus of the Interlochen Arts Academy in Inter?lochen, Michigan, and of the University of Michigan. Since 1970, he has recorded his original music and toured the world with his own rock, jazz, and folk groups. He served as an adjunct professor at Skid
more College, Saratoga Springs, New York from 19982002. Chris Brubeck continues to enjoy working with students around the country, con?ducting guest lectures and student workshops, and discussing the art of composition.

America's most exciting ensembles, including the Cavani and Cleveland String Quartets, and the Cleveland, Detroit, Mon?treal, and Baltimore Sym?phonies. Mr. Snyder is a founding member of The Phoenix Ensemble and cel?list in the tango band, The Oblivion Project, which
explores the music of Astor Piazzolla. He has cre?ated numerous transcriptions and arrangements for cello ensembles, focusing primarily on the music of Dave Brubeck and Astor Piazzolla.

This season marks the Ann Arbor Symphony
Orchestra's (A2SO) 77th year of exceptional music making that involves the Ann Arbor community, fires its imagination, and inspires the next genera?tion of listeners. In 1941, Joseph Maddy (founder of Interlochen Music Camp) conducted this "mom and pop" orchestra of committed and talented amateur musicians. Since 1986, the A2SO has been a fully professional orchestra, first under the baton of Carl St. Clair, followed by Samuel Wong. Arie Lipsky was the unanimous choice to succeed Maestro Wong to lead this orchestra.
Maestro Lipsky's distinguished and inspired music making treats growing audiences to thrilling performances. Each carefully prepared season fea?tures timehonored classics, a variety of lessfamil?iar works by the great masters, and a bouquet of accessible new works by modern composers

including the premiere of a new work by an emerging UM student composer. This year cele?brated Mozart's 250th birthday with a special musical theater commission, Mozart Comes to Ann Arbor. The Orchestra was heard over National Public Radio in November 2004.
Throughout its 126year 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 UMS, the 175voice Choral Union is known for its defin?itive performances of largescale works for chorus and orchestra. Thirteen years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when it began appearing regularly with the Detroit Sym?phony Orchestra (DSO).
Led by recently appointed Conductor and Music Director Jerry Blackstone, the 0506 season includ?ed collaborations with the DSO, a concert perform?ance of Rossini's opera Tancredi, Shostakovich's Symphony No. 2 with the Kirov Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre, and Vaughan Williams's Sea Symphony with the UM School of Music's Sym?phony Orchestra conducted by Jerry Blackstone.
Participation in the UMS Choral Union remains
open to all students and adults by audition. For more information about the UMS Choral Union, please email
The Chancel Choir of the First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor has a long and rich history of fine choral singing. For 50 years the church has been known for its classical choral tradition in worship and regular performances of major works with orchestra. The works of Brahms, Mozart, Bach, Britten, Faure, Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, and most recently, Mozart's C minor Mass, have drawn residents of Ann Arbor to the nave of this historic church. In December 2002, the choir invit?ed jazz legend Dave Brubeck to the church to per?form two soldout performances of his Christmas cantata, La Fiesta de la Posada, with orchestra and jazz trio, including two of his sons, Chris and Daniel Brubeck. In 2005, Mr. Brubeck returned to the First Presbyterian Church to perform his Pen?tecost oratorio Voice of the Holy Spirit, with the Dave Brubeck Quartet, Chancel Choir, and orchestra. Led by Music Director Susan Boggs, the Chancel Choir has made two international choir tours: Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic in 2000; and to Russia, Ukraine, and Estonia in 2004
UMS Archives
One of the mostrevered icons of jazz, Dave Brubeck, at the age of 85 years, is still composing, recording, touring, and performing. Dave Brubeck has a deep performance history in both Ann Arbor and at Hill Auditorium. Mr. Brubeck made his UMS debut on January 17, 1974 at Hill Auditori?um with "Two Generations of Brubeck," a concert that featured his sons Darius, Chris, and Dan along with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the UMS Choral Union. The program featured selections by Dave Brubeck and Sons as well as excerpts from his landmark 1968 oratorio. The Light in the Wilderness, also featured on this evening's concert tribute program.
This was certainly not Dave Brubeck's Ann Arbor debut. In 1954, the original Dave Brubeck Quartet, includ?ing Paul Desmond, Bob Bates, and Joe Dodge, recorded a legendary concert at Hill Auditorium that was later compiled into a collection of campus concerts by Columbia Records and released as Jazz Goes to College.
The Dave Brubeck Quartet returned to Ann Arbor under UMS auspices on February 5, 1986 performing live music to choreography by the Murray Louis Dance Company including "Glances" and "Four Brubeck Pieces" at the Power Center. Outside of UMS presentations, the Ann Arbor Summer Festival and the First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor--who recently presented an eveninglength concert of Mr. Brubeck's The Voice of the Holy Spirit--have each contributed to Mr. Brubeck's Ann Arbor allure with presentations of their own.
The current Dave Brubeck Quartet made its most recent UMS appearance at Hill Auditorium on October 2, 2004.
Jazz Goes to College: Columbia Records' first collection of campus concerts by the Dave Brubeck Quartet recorded in 1954 at both Oberlin College and at Hill Auditorium at the University of Michigan. Released June 6, 1955.

I hi:
his evening's gala dinner honoring Dave Brubeck was planned and organized by the UMS Advi?sory Committee. We are a volunteer group, passionate about raising funds in support of UMS educa?tional programs. As we celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Ford Honors Program, we are proud to announce that the Ford Honors Gala Dinner has raised more than one million dollars over the past 11 years to benefit the UMS Education and Audience Development Program. These funds have been more than matched by the generosity of the Ford Motor Company Fund, whose support for UMS education programs has totaled $1.4 million since 1996. Because of your generous support of the Ford Honors Program, UMS is able to continue its tradition of excellence in arts education.
On behalf of the UMS Advisory Committee, we offer you our sincere thanks and best wishes for a memorable evening.

triving to provide worldclass educational events and cultural exchange to the broadest definition of the community, the UMS Education and Audience Development Program continued its progressive growth and mission in many areas. Through a wide variety of partnership and collaborations with indi?viduals and community organizations, UMS was able to expand its commitment to audiences through a wide variety of activities designed for different ages, nationalities, and learning styles. We recognize that every single person has a unique relationship to the arts, and our role is to enhance that connec?tion through dialogue and participation. UMS Education has been awarded the "Best Practice" award by both ArtServe Michigan and the Dana Foundation. In the past season, UMS was able to offer 89 events to nearly 24,500 people as part of our Education and Audience Development program.
Youth, Teen and Family Education
The largest Youth Performance program in Michi?gan, UMS's Youth Education Program is uniquely developed in partnership with the Ann Arbor Pub?lic Schools (AAPS) and the Washtenaw Intermedi?ate School District (WISD). UMS provides worldclass artistic experiences and professional development to students, young adults, teachers, and families. UMS has been in partnership with the AAPS and WISD since 1997 as part of the Kennedy Center Partners in Education program. Nearly 40 events serving over 17,000 people were planned in the 0506 season.
K12 Youth Performance Series
UMS's acclaimed onehour, specially designed, intheater performances for students offered 11 performances this season of six different artists. This quantity allowed nearly 15,000 students to attend this series. Over 100 schools from 25 dis?tricts participated in UMS's Youth Performance Series. This season alone, over 6,000 students were able to see special daytime performances of Children of Uganda, with 50 of all attending students coming from outside of Ann Arbor.
UMS Teacher Workshop Series
Along with parents, UMS believes that teachers are instrumental in the development of the arts in our children. UMS is part of the Kennedy Center Part?ners in Education Program, offering worldclass Kennedy Center workshop leaders, as well as work?shops designed by local arts experts, to our com?munity. With 10 diverse workshops this past season, nearly 320 teachers attended UMS's teacher work?shop series this season. From book clubs to spo?kenword workshops, to daylong participatory immersions on African culture, UMS provided a year's worth of professional development for teachers to immediately utilize in their classroom.
UMS Curriculum Packets
UMS creates teacher curriculum packets, CDs, and DVDs for all of the schools participating in UMS's diverse program. These guides have garnered national attention and are used throughout the performing arts industry. The guides are recog?nized as essential tools for enhancing the class?room experience.
UMS K12 School Enrichment
UMS has expanded its effort in inschool enhance?ment by providing additional support to the class?room teacher with trained arts professionals to more effectively teach students. Over the course of the season, UMS has facilitated over 11 of these classroom visits, affecting nearly 500 students.
UMS Educator of the Year
UMS would like to honor and congratulate Michelle Peet as the 2006 UMS Educator of the Year. Ms. Peet is a Drama and Speech teacher at Ypsilanti High School as part of Washtenaw Inter?mediate School District.
"In my seven years working with this remarkable organization my students and I have benefited in innumerable ways. UMS offers much more than simply affordable tickets to shows. They take stu?dents to every corner of the globe, all without leav?ing the county! Students attend each performance fully prepared for deep levels of learning and understanding, in addition to aesthetic apprecia?tion, because UMS works diligently to offer com?prehensive education packets to every teacher well in advance of each performance. In addition to enhancing our classroom learning, UMS brings worldclass performers into the schools, offers extensive teacher learning opportunities, and demonstrates a commitment to keeping the arts alive by developing the audience of tomorrow. With their commitment to our youth so inherent in the organization's programming, I cannot envision arts education without UMS, they are truly a treas?ure to our community."

UMS Special Recognition
UMS is pleased to honor Lynda Berg for her tireless service to students and teachers in the support of the arts and arts education.
Lynda Weston Berg is a former Metropolitan Opera District Competition winner and a Cum Laude graduate of the University of Michigan, where she received both her bachelor and masters degrees in voice performance. In the early 1970s, she discovered the magic of teaching and returned to UM to attain certification in both classroom and music education. In 1998, after teaching elementary vocal music for over 25 years, Ms. Berg became the Coor?dinator of Music for the Ann Arbor Public Schools, which under her leadership has evolved into the Department of Fine Arts and Physical Education.
During her tenure, partnerships between UMS, the Ann Arbor Public Schools, and the Kennedy Cen?ter Partners in Education Program has emerged as one of the premiere artseducation partnerships in the country. In the past seven years, Ann Arbor high
school music depart?ments have received a total of nine Gram?my Signature School awards, including the coveted Grammy "Gold" status for each building. This year, Pioneer High
School received the top honor, being named the "2006 National Grammy Signature School." This year, Ann Arbor was recognized by the American Music Conference as being one of the "Top 100 Communities for Music Education" in the country.
Advocating passionately for arts education, Ms. Berg is in demand across the state for her presenta?tions on the importance of arts education in the lives of all students. Known for her proactive approach, collaborative skills, high expectations, and incredible vision, Ms. Berg has navigated the treacherous shrinking budget waters to expand the AAPS Fine Arts Department at a time when many other districts find these programs in jeopardy.
Breakin' Curfew 2006
Celebrating the artistic voice of the local teen community is important to UMS. Through a part?nership with Ann Arbor's teen center, the Neutral Zone, Breakin' Curfew allows over 25 teen cura?tors and 200 local teens to create, perform, pro?duce, and market a professional performance at the Power Center for the Performing Arts. Breakin' Curfew is unique to the city of Ann Arbor and is truly a showcase for emerging teen talent.
UMS Family Series
The UMS Family Series is designed to allow parents and their children to share a meaningful bonding and artistic experience. UMS is committed to worldclass family programming with nearly 1,150 people attending our specially designed familyori?ented events. UMS teamed up with other area cul?tural organizations to present the second annual Ann Arbor Family Days. This twoday event offered free and lowcost familyfriendly cultural events to members of the Ann Arbor area community in multiple venues throughout the city.
adult and Community Education
UMS serves its adult and university populations in many different ways. Providing relevance and con?text to our audiences is of crucial importance and aids in allowing audiences to become fully engaged in their experience. UMS emphasizes the importance of partnering with community organ?izations in the development of these programs. Throughout the past season, UMS partnered with over 175 individuals, community organizations, and university units to plan over 50 events. Near?ly all events were free and open to the public.
Artist Residencies
The artists hold a special place at UMS, and last sea?son was no exception. UMS encourages artists and ensembles to be actively engaged in the communi?ty. UMS facilitated and managed major residency activities with artists and ensembles throughout the year, including Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Louis Andriessen, Pappa Tarahumara, the Handspring and Sogolon Puppet Companies, and the Piccolo Teatro di Milano.
Adult and Community Education
UMS continued to provide a broad range of edu?cational events that appeals to the widest variety of community members. UMS held seven master classes, four public interviews, six classroom visits, seven lectures, one panel discussion, one roundtable discussion, one symposium, two study clubs, and 23 other events including exhibits, films, and receptions. Nearly 7,500 people participated in UMS's educational exchanges.
The NETWORK: African American Arts Advocacy Committee
The NETWORK was a new initiative launched by UMS during the past two seasons to create an opportunity for African Americans and broader communities to celebrate the worldclass artistry of today's leading African and AfricanAmerican per?formers and creative artists. Over 1,100 NETWORK members connected, socialized, and networked with the AfricanAmerican community through attendance at UMS events and free preconcert receptions.
Partnership and Collaboration
UMS Education has garnered nationwide atten?tion through its commitment to partnering and collaborating with regional individuals and organ?izations. UMS collaborates with over 200 partners each season.

UMS School of the Year
UMS would like to honor and congratulate Scarlett Middle School, of the Arbor Public School District, as the 2006 UMS School of the Year. The Principal of Scarlett Middle School is Benjamin Edmonsdon, and the Lead Teacher is Susan Buchan.
"The arts are not the icing on the cake. We believe that the experiences UMS provides are lifechang?ing for some of our students. Preparing for these events through enriching teacher workshops and UMS study guides makes our work as educators rewarding and exciting. As the kids would say, 'UMS has it going on!' Thank you, Ben Johnson and all the crew at UMS."
--Susan Buchan, Lead Teacher, Scarlett Middle School
