Welcome to this performance of the 129th season of the University Musical Society (UMS).
All of us at the University of Michigan are proud of UMS, the nation's oldest university-related performing arts presenter that is distinctive nationally in several ways:
UMS has commissioned more than 50 new works since 1990, demonstrating its commit?ment to supporting creative artists in all disciplines. Two of these UMS commissions featured this term are works by renowned U-M composers: MacArthur Fellow Bright Sheng's String Quartet No. 5 for the Emerson String Quartet on January 4 and Pulitzer Prize-winning William Bolcom's Octet for Double Quartet for the Guarneri and Johannes String Quartets on February 9.
In the past three seasons, 54 of UMS pre?sentations have featured artists making their UMS debuts, a measure of UMS's commit?ment to new and emerging artists, and 55 have featured artists from outside the United States, highlighting UMS's belief that artistic expression can foster greater understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures. In con?junction with the University's ChinaNow Theme Year, UMS presents pianist Yuja Wang on January 20 and pipa player Wu Man on February 10, each in their UMS debut per?formance.
UMS has worked in partnership with more than 50 U-M academic units and more than 150 U-M faculty members during the past three years, in addition to more than 100 community-based partners. One of the most notable partnerships for UMS this season is with our School of Music, Theatre & Dance. Together they have brought the renowned contemporary chamber music ensemble
eighth blackbird to the campus on four occasions during which the group has worked with hundreds of students on campus and in the community. Their residency culminates in their UMS debut performance on April 10.
UMS is the only university-related presenter in the nation to have been honored by both the Wallace Foundation with its Excellence Award and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with its Leading College and University Presenter Award in the inaugural year of both endowment programs, a measure of the esteem with which UMS is regarded in the presenting field.
Thank you for attending this UMS perform?ance. Please join us for other UMS events and for performances, exhibitions, and cultural activ?ities offered by our faculty and students in U-M's many outstanding venues.

Welcome! It's great to have you with us at this UMS performance. I hope you enjoy the experience and will come to more UMS events between now and May 10 when we close our 200708 season with our annual Ford Honors Program. This year's program features a recital by flutist James Galway followed by a wonderful dinner organized by our Advisory Committee. You'll find all of our performances listed on page 2 of your program insert.
Our Fall Season included 31 performances featuring artists and ensembles representing 19 countries around the world. Wherever possible, we like to create opportunities for our audience members to meet the artists. Here is a sampling of photos from several of the events from the Fall Season:

It is inspiring and humbling to serve on the Board of UMS, which is widely recognized as one of the world's leading arts presenters. UMS is committed to performance, education, and the creation of new works, and has a 128-year history of excellence in all three areas. Our task at UMS is to advance the arts, to the benefit of the national and international arts communities, the University of Michigan, our local community, and our present and future patrons.
Each of us has an important role to play in this endeavor, whether as an audience member at a performance or an educational activity, a donor, or a volunteer member of the Board, Senate, Advisory Committee, or the new UMS National Council, which is enhancing our visibility around the country. We all are fortunate to have an opportunity to contribute to the special history of UMS.
Arts organizations exist because those who came before us chose to take advantage of the same kind of opportunity. To me, this is exemplified by some?thing that I was once told by a producer before a theatrical performance. He took us into the theater and said that, despite the not insignificant cost of our tickets, we should know there was the equivalent of a $50 bill on every seat-the contribution made by others enabling us to enjoy that presentation.
The same is true for UMS. About half of the cost of what we do comes from ticket sales. The remainder comes from you and your predecessors in this hall. Some sat in the second balcony as students and experienced the transformative power of the arts. Some sat with friends for 30 years in the same section of Hill. And some witnessed children being excited and inspired at a youth performance. All have chosen to leave money on their seats.
When you take your seat, think about what others have done that makes your experience possible. I hope you will be inspired to contribute to the UMS legacy. Consider your opportunity to "leave money on your seat," through both your participation and financial contributions. Be an active part of UMS, and when a member of the next generation arrives, they will be thankful that they got your seat.

Through a commitment to Presentation, Education, and the Creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) serves Michigan audiences by bringing to our community an ongo-ng series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 128 ears, strong leadership coupled with a devoted ;ommunity has placed UMS in a league of nternationally recognized performing arts pre?senters. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a eflection of a thoughtful respect for this rich and varied history, balanced by a commitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the oerforming arts will take us in this new millen?nium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation m every facet of the live arts.
UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for :he study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and conducted by ?rofessor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Their first perform?ance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879 and this glorious oratorio has since been performed by the UMS Choral Union annually. As a great number of Choral Union mem?bers also belonged to the University, the University Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and through?out the year presented a series of concerts fea?turing 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 theater. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies, and other collaborative proj?ects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction, and innovation. UMS now hosts over 50 performances and more than 125 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in five differ?ent Ann Arbor venues.
The UMS Choral Union has likewise expanded their charge over their 128-year history. Recent collaborations have included the Grammy Award-winning recording of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience, as well as performances of John Adams's On the Transmigration of Souls with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13 ("Babi Yar") with the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg.
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, founda?tion and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.
Hill Auditorium
After an 18-month $38.6-million dollar renova?tion overseen by Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects, Hill Auditorium re-opened to the public in January 2004. Originally built in 1913, renovations have updated Hill's infra?structure and restored much of the interior to its original splendor. Exterior renovations include the reworking of brick paving and stone retaining wall areas, restoration of the south entrance plaza, reworking of the west barrier-free ramp and loading dock, and improvements to landscaping.
Interior renovations included the creation of additional restrooms, the improvement of barrier-free circulation by providing elevators and an addition with ramps, the replacement
of seating to increase patron comfort, introdui -tion of barrier-free seating and stage access, the replacement of theatrical performance and audio-visual systems, and the complete replacement of mechanical and electrical infra?structure systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Hill Auditorium seats 3,575.
Michigan Theater
The historic Michigan Theater opened January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaudevillemovie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the 1,710-seat theater cost around $600,000 when it was first built. As was the custom of the day, the theater was equipped to host both film and live stage events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ. At its opening, the theater was acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country. Since 1979, the theater has been operated by the not-for-profit Michigan Theater Foundation. With broad community support, the Foundation has raised over $8 million to restore and improve the Michigan Theater. The beautiful interior of the theater was restored in 1986.
In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater opened a new 200-seat screening room addi?tion, which also included expanded restroom facilities for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000
Power Center
The Power Center for the Performing Arts grew out of 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 was too small. The Power Center was built to supply this missing link in design and seating capacity.
In 1963, Eugene and Sadye Power, togethei with their son Philip, wished to make a major gift to the University, and amidst a list of
University priorities "a new theater" was men?tioned. The Powers were immediately interested, realizing that state and federal governments 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 achieved 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. The lobby of the Power Center presently fea?tures two hand-woven tapestries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes (Arabesque) by Pablo Picasso.
The Power Center seats approximately 1,400 people.
Arbor Springs Water Company is generously providing complimentary water to UMS artists backstage at the Power Center throughout the 0708 season.
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, and Newberry Hall, the current home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School which houses Rackham Auditorium, but also to estab?lish a $4 million endowment to further the development of graduate studies. Even more remarkable than the size of the gift is the fact that neither he nor his wife 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, UMS presented its first chamber music festival with the Musical Art Quartet of New York per?forming 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.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
Dedicated in 1969, 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 1,000 people and has ample free parking. In 1994, St. Francis pur?chased 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 con?templation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Burton Memorial Tower
Seen from miles away, Burton Memorial Tower is one of the most well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor landmarks. Designed by Albert Kahn in 1935 as a memorial to U-M President Marion Leroy Burton, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet. The carillon, one of only 23 in the world, is the world's fourth heaviest containing 55 bells and weighing a total of 43 tons. UMS has occupied administrative offices in this building since its opening, with a brief pause in the year 2000 for significant renovations.

Sonata for Solo Violin, Op. 27, No. 1 (1924)
Eugene Ysaye
Born July 76, 1858 in Liege, Belgium
Died May 12, 1931 in Brussels
Eugene Ysaye is remembered first and foremost as one of the greatest violinists of the late-19th and early-2Oth centuries. He was a highly influ?ential teacher and the dedicatee of such classics as Cesar Franck's Violin Sonata in A Major, Ernest Chausson's Poeme and Claude Debussy's String Quartet in g minor, Op. 10. Yet he was also a composer in his own right, and though not often played, his six remarkable solo sonatas for violin, written late in his life, have earned him a firm place in the repertoire. Rightly so: these are much more than virtuoso showpieces. The sonatas are among the most challenging works ever written for violin, but they are also full of originality in their structure and their harmonic idiom.
Each work is dedicated to a different violin?ist colleague of Ysaye's; this piece pays tribute to Joseph Szigeti (1892-1973), who was only 32 years old when he received this honor from the Master. The sonata could almost be called a modern "remake" of Bach's unaccompanied so?natas. It shares its g-minor tonality with the first of those, and adheres to the same four-movement outline, the so-called sonata da chiesa (church so?nata) format that Bach had followed. The opening "Grave" takes its cue from the rhythm of the sara-bande, with numerous irregularities in the meter. The second movement "Fugato," after the model of the second-movement fugues in all three of Bach's unaccompanied sonatas. The third and fourth movements (a quasi-minuet and a quasi-gigue) seem to have been inspired by the other three of Bach's solo works, the partitas, which are essentially dance sequences.
Ysaye's writing is distinguished by a high de?gree of chromaticism and many advanced virtuoso techniques: double, triple, and quadruple stops, arpeggios, and fast runs. The ending of the first movement, with its tremolos (fast note repeats) played sul ponticello (near the bridge) is decidedly un-Bachian in its sound, but it is certainly faith?ful to the great models in its intent to encompass everything the violin was capable of doing in the 20th century--Bach had offered a similar violinis-tic compendium for his own time.
Sonata No. 3 in C Major, BWV 1005 (c. 1720) Johann Sebastian Bach Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig
Although best known in his own day as a virtuoso organist. Bach was also a professional-level violinist. His first job--for a few months in 1703, when he was 18 years old--was actually as a violin player in Weimar. Bach was therefore intimately familiar with the technique of the instrument; his three partitas and three sonatas for unaccompanied violin are the "bible" of every violin player to this very day.
All three sonatas follow the same general pattern: they start with introductions not unlike the preludes in the Well-tempered Clavier (the C Major "Adagio" exists, in fact, in a keyboard arrangement listed in the Bach catalog as BWV 968). The elaborate ornamentation of these pre?ludes and their frequently modulating (sometimes chromatic) harmonies serve as introductions to the fugues that follow in each case. The latter represent special challenges in an unaccompanied work where a single violin has to play all the voic?es. After these two more "serious" movements, the third and fourth movements are "lighter": in each case, a melodious instrumental aria is fol?lowed by a finale in perpetual motion, where the rapid 16th-notes serve as vehicles for considerable harmonic and structural intricacy.
Each sonata realizes this basic pattern in a dif?ferent way. In this work (the only one of the three written in a Major key), the opening "Adagio" fo?cuses on a rhythmic idea rather than on an orna?mental one. The fugal second movement includes a lengthy middle section in a non-contrapuntal, figurative style. The "Largo" is dominated by a single uninterrupted melodic line, while the finale introduces a dance-like rhythmic pattern to break up the monotony of the steady 16th-note motion.
Sonata for Unaccompanied Violin (1944)
Bela Bart6k
Bom March 25, 1881 in Nagyszentmiklos,
Hungary (now Sinnicolau Mare, Romania) Died September 26, 1945 in New York
In November 1943, Bart6k heard Yehudi Menuhin perform J.S. Bach's Sonata No. 3 in C Major, BWV 1005. He was so impressed with Menuhin's art?istry that he immediately decided to comply with the violinist's request for a new work.
The fact that Menuhin performed unaccom?panied Bach at the recital attended by Bart6k had important consequences. Bartbk's sonata shows many signs of Baroque inspiration, which may have come via Bartbk's friend Zoltn Kodaly who (some three decades earlier) had composed his Sonata for Solo Cello, itself the most important work of its kind since Bach. The respective openings of the Kodaly and Bartok sonatas are surprisingly similar in their rhythmic shape, their chordal texture, and their combination of Baroque features with pen-tatonic Hungarianisms. Bartbk's first movement-marked Tempo diCiaccona--was inspired, in addi?tion, by Bach's "Chaconne" from the Partita No. 2 in d minor. Yet Bartbk's movement is in sonata form, with a second subject that has little to do with Baroque music.
The second-movement "Fuga" is another case where Baroque techniques merge complete?ly with impulses of different origins. It has for its theme that same minor third, presented in an un?adorned, almost brutal way, upon which the "Ar?abic" Scherzo of the String Quartet No. 2, Op. 17 (1915-17) had been based, and its expanded re?peat is also rooted in a long-standing Bartbkian practice derived from folk music. Furthermore, the rhythm of folk dance is woven into the very fabric of the fugue theme and its elaboration.
The third-movement "Melodia" leaves the Baroque models behind and is devoted entirely to a typically Bartbkian chromatic melody. The move?ment is in ABA form with an extremely free reca?pitulation. The main structural turning points are emphasized by changes in playing technique. Thus, the ending of the main theme is marked by a short tag played in harmonics; the central section, one of Bartbk's mysterious "night musics," is distin?guished by the use of the mute; and the movement ends with an extended return of the tag played in harmonics. Now however, instead of single pitches, harmonic double-stops are required.
In the last movement, Bartbk made use of quarter-tones, an innovation that was eliminated in Menuhin's edition of the work which, for many years, was the only version available. At tonight's concert, Mr. Tetzlaff will play the original version, in which the quarter-tones play an important structural role: they affect the opening perpetual motion and then disappear in the two slower-moving episodes. Of the latter, the first involves the pentatonic scale found in so many Hungarian folksongs, and the second contains augmented and diminished intervals more characteristic of Romanian folk music.
24 Caprices, Op. 1 (Excerpts, 1805) Niccolo Paganini
Born October 27, 1782 in Genoa, Italy Died May 27, 1840 in Nice, France
Had Paganini sold his soul to the devil Or was he actually the son of the devil Unbelievable as it may seem, these questions were actually be?ing debated (one wonders how seriously) in the Viennese press in 1828, when Paganini came to visit the Austrian imperial capital. (Franz Schubert, never a rich man, bought not one but two expen?sive seats for the concert.) The rumors about Pa-ganini's diabolical origins were so persistent that the violinist's mother had to write an open letter to the Viennese newspaper to testify that her son had been born the usual way. Or rather, her son had to write the letter for her, because she was by all accounts illiterate.
Why did Paganini have to face such outland?ish charges By the late 1820s, his reputation as the world's greatest violin virtuoso had spread beyond his native Italy, and audiences watched in utter disbelief as he performed feats on the in?strument that no one had previously thought pos?sible. His facility in playing rapid scale passages in double-stops (thirds, sixths, octaves, 10ths) and the brilliance of his harmonics (played with fingers barely touching the strings) mystified even the best professional violinists. His technique, how?ever, was not all that was diabolical about him: many scandalous stories circulated about his pri?vate life--many of them true. His very appearance (a tall, thin man with long hair, curly side-whiskers, a pale countenance and an aquiline nose) struck many contemporaries as rather eerie.
In his 24 Caprices--one of the most astound?ing "Op. 1"s in the literature--Paganini not only revolutionized the technique of the violin but cre?ated, at the time, the most significant body of un?accompanied violin music since Bach. Of the four we shall hear this evening. No. 16 is a study in per?petual motion, in which the emphasis is placed on bow control. The lyrical melody of No. 6 is joined by a sensitive accompaniment played tremolo (with rapidly alternating pairs of notes). No. 15 bears the unusual tempo marking Posato, which translates, perhaps, as "with an even placement of sound." It is a complex piece where passages in parallel octaves--a special challenge on the violin--appear side by side with fast runs. No. 1 features arpeggios and passages in parallel thirds.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
Christian Tetzlaff is internationally rec?ognized as one of the most important violinists of his generation. In honor of his artistic achievements, Musical America named Mr. Tetzlaff "Instrumentalist of the Year" in 2005.
From the outset of his career, Mr. Tetzlaff has performed and recorded a broad spectrum of the repertoire, ranging from Bach's unaccompanied sonatas and partitas to 19th-century masterworks by Mendelssohn, Beethoven, and Brahms; from 20th-century concertos by Bart6k, Berg, and Stra?vinsky to world premieres of contemporary works. Since his performances of the Schoenberg Violin Concerto that brought him to international atten?tion at age 22--with Christoph von Dohnanyi and The Cleveland Orchestra and with Sergiu Celibidache and the Munich Philharmonic--Mr. Tetzlaff has been recognized for his playing of the less frequently heard areas of the literature. Nonetheless, he considers Mozart and Brahms to be just as central and challenging to his musi?cal development. Mr. Tetzlaff is also dedicated to chamber music and frequently collaborates with distinguished artists including Leif Ove Andsnes, Lars Vogt, Sabine Meyer, Heinrich Schiff, and Ta-bea Zimmermann.
Born in Hamburg in 1966 to a minister's family in which music occupied a central place, his three siblings are all professional musicians. He frequently performs with his sister Tanja, a cellist. Mr. Tetzlaff began playing the violin and piano at age six, but pursued a regular academic educa?tion while continuing his musical studies. He did not begin intensive study of the violin until mak?ing his concert debut playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 61 at the age of 14. Mr. Tetzlaff came to the US in 1985 to study at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and also spent two summers at the Marl?boro Music Festival in Vermont.
Mr. Tetzlaff has been in demand as a solo?ist with many of the world's leading ensembles and conductors, establishing close artistic part?nerships that are renewed season after season. In North America, Mr. Tetzlaff has performed with the orchestras of Chicago, Cleveland, Boston, Philadelphia, New York (both the Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra), San Fran?cisco, and Toronto. He also appears regularly in recital and with major orchestras in Berlin, Vienna, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Munich, and Rome.
Highlights of Mr. Tetzlaff's 0708 season include appearances with the Los Angeles Philhar?monic and the Boston, Detroit, and New World symphonies; the St. Louis Sym?phony both in St. Louis and at Carnegie Hall; and a series of concerts playing all 10 Beethoven sonatas for violin
and piano with Alexander Lonquich at the 92nd Street Y in New York.
Mr. Tetzlaff's highly regarded recordings for Virgin Classics reflect the breadth of his mu?sical interests. They include the complete works for violin and orchestra of Jean Sibelius with the Danish National Radio Orchestra and Thomas Dausgaard, which won the prestigious Diapason d'or Award; and the Grammy-nominated album Bartok: Violin Sonatas (with Leif Ove Andsnes). His most recent releases include the Bach Sonatas and Partitas on the Musical Heritage and Hanssler labels and a recording of the Brahms and Joachim violin concertos with the Danish Radio Orchestra Dausgaard for Virgin Records.
Mr. Tetzlaff makes his home near Frankfurt with his wife, a clarinetist with the Frankfurt Op?era, and their three children. He currently performs on a violin modeled after a Guarneri del Gesu made by the German violin maker Peter Greiner.

Notes on this Evening's Program
NINA materialize sacrifice was born from studying how we might produce an energy strong enough to give a sense of the beauty and power of a body before it moves in space. Once we found this energy, in the stillness before motion, then movements were specifically chosen in order to maintain the initial physicality. The magical en?counter with the original score from An Ton-That then allowed NINA to travel into the journey of her story...
The body The figure The object
with the right light with the right music In right time In right space Then drama will be born as if it were always there waiting to be found...
About the Company
In April of 2004, Noism was organized to be the residential dance company at the Ryutopia Niigata-City Performing Arts Center. Jo Kana-
mori, a young and energetic choreographer and dancer active all over the world, was appointed Artistic Director of the new company. In Japan, a residential dance company in the public theater is very rare and the incorporation of this company was considered a highly notable and epoch-mak?ing event. Since its inception, there has been great interest surrounding Noism as it is the country's first European-style professional dance company. Kanamori auditioned over 200 dancers from all over the country and selected 10 he felt had a strong dance history but who also showed their own individuality. The company is consistently praised for its presentation of imaginative, chal?lenging, and powerful work.
Jo Kanamori {Artistic DirectorChoreogra?pher) was the first Japanese dancer to study under Maurice Bejart at Rudra Bejart Lau?sanne. He was a member of the Netherlands Dance Theater II, the Opera National de Lyon Bal?let, and the Gothenburg Ballet before returning to Japan in 2002. In 2003 Mr. Kanamori received the third Asahi Performing Arts Award and Kirin Spe?cial Grant for Dance for his first self-produced per?formance, no-mad-ic project. He won the Dance
Critics Association of Japan Award in 2005 and the Matsuyama Ballet Foundation Art Encourage?ment Award in 2006. Drawing on his extensive experience overseas, he is constantly initiating in?novative and imaginative activities for Noism. He is highly esteemed for his skill in planning high-quality projects.
An Ton That {Music) With his first stage per?formance as a pianist at the tender age of nine, followed by strict musical studies throughout his young years, the logical result for An Ton That would have been to become a concert pianist, if not a conductor. Instead, he quit all musical en?deavors after graduating and studied English at the Sorbonne whilst taking acting classes. But that was to be a short hiatus, as music came back in his life under many guises: through a jazz quin?tet that he founded at age 20, playing organ in an Ancient Music band, or later, as pianist and composer for French songstress Michele Atlani with whom he toured in France. He developed as a composer and worked for the stage, penning incidental music for new productions of Gogol's The Marriage (2000), Moliere's Dom Juan (2003),
and Oscar Wilde's Salome (2005). But it is his love for dance that led him to work on bigger scale projects: W.h.a. (2003) for French enfant terrible Regine Chopinot, Mm (2005) for Cody Choi (his first work performed at the Royal Opera House in London), then NINA materialize sacrifice (2005) for Japanese choreographer Jo Kanamori.
In 2004, he founded S.W.A.T.T., a perform?ing collective with Simon Williams; they presented their first creation Constellation (2004) in Paris, then Nina's Hidden Class (2006) in London. Under the alias "Aaken," he released Cirdesong (2005), a collection of songs in both English and Vietnamese that he had nurtured for long years and which re?flect his approach to music in general: a blending of his classical background, contemporary music, pop, and electronic as well as Asian roots, all em?braced to create a very personal musical language.
Current projects include Sur le Fil, a dance piece by Chinese choreographer Gang Peng that will feature five hip hop dancers and two puppe?teers, and new material for a second album en?titled Pandaemonium.
This evening's performance marks Noism08's UMS debut.

One of today's most influential artists, cel?ebrated pianist-composer Ahmad Jamal has been a force on the jazz scene for more than five decades, earning acclaim for his outstanding technical command and identifiable sound. An innovator since the 1950s when his ca?reer began, the hallmarks of Mr. Jamal's style are rhythmic innovations, colorful harmonic percep?tions, incorporating a unique sense of space in his music, and creating tension and release.
Mr. Jamal was born on July 2, 1930, in Pitts?burgh, Pennsylvania. A child prodigy who began to play the piano at the age of three, he began formal studies at seven. While in high school, he completed the equivalent of college master classes under the noted African-American concert singer and teacher Mary Cardwell Dawson and pianist James Miller. He joined the musicians union at the age of 14, and he began touring upon graduation from Westinghouse High School at the age of 17, drawing critical acclaim for his solos. In 1951, he formed his first trio, The Three Strings.
In 1956, Mr. Jamal, who had already been joined by bassist Israel Crosby in 1955, replaced guitarist Ray Crawford with a drummer. Work?ing as the "house trio" at Chicago's Pershing Hotel in 1958, drummer Vernell Fournier joined this trio and Mr. Jamal made an on-location re?cording for Argo (Chess) Records entitled But Not For Me. The resulting hit single and album, that also included "Poinciana"--his rendition, now Mr. Jamal's "trademark,"-remained on the top-10 bestselling charts an unprecedented 108 weeks
and has sold over one million copies. This fi?nancial success enabled Mr. Jamal to realize a dream, and he opened a restaurantclub, The Alhambra, in Chicago. Here the Trio was able to perform while limiting their touring schedule.
Much of Mr. Ja-mal's music has been recorded or sampled by such artists as Nata?lie Cole, Gil Evans, and Miles Davis. The Village Voice ranks Mr. Jamal's distinctive style as hav?ing had a musical in-
fluence on the same level as "Jelly Roll Morton, Fletcher Henderson, Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Count Basie, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, and John Lewis," and Sydney Morning Herald calls Mr. Jamal".. .the most distinctive jazz pianist since Th?elonious Monk..."
In 1970, Mr. Jamal performed the title com?position by Johnny Mandel for the soundtrack of the film MASH!; and in 1995, two tracks from his smash album But Not For Me--"Music, Mu?sic, Music," and "Poinciana" were featured in the Clint Eastwood film The Bridges of Madison County.
In 1994, Mr. Jamal received the American Jazz Masters fellowship award from the National Endowment for the Arts. The same year he was named a Duke Ellington Fellow at Yale University, where he performed commissioned works with the Assai String Quartet. He recently received one of the highest awards the French Government can bestow, becoming an officer in The French Order of Arts and Letters.
His new CD, recorded in Strasbourg, France, will be released in March of this year by Birdology Dreyfus Records.
Tonight's concert marks the UMS debut of Ahmad Jamal, James Cammack, and Idris Muhammad.

String Quartet in C Major, Op. 74, No. 1
Joseph Haydn
Born March 31, 1732 in Rohrau, Lower Austria Died May 31, 1809 in Vienna
Upon his return to Vienna from London in 1792, Haydn composed a set of six quartets, which were eventually published in two installments, under two different opus numbers (71 and 74, with three works in each opus). They were publicly performed in London when Haydn returned there for a second sojourn, yet their dedicatee, the Hun?garian aristocrat Count Georg Apponyi, had them previously performed in his salon.
The pair of chords with which this quartet opens clearly has to do with the public concert life Haydn discovered in London. Its function is to tell the audience to stop talking so that the piece may begin. (Each quartet in the Op. 7174 set be?gins with similar "noise-killers.") The music that follows gives the first violin an almost concerto-like leading role--something we find in many of Haydn's early quartets but few of the mature ones, in which the composer strove to make the four parts as close to equal as possible. This time, however, he wanted to feature his friend, violinist Johann Peter Salomon who had been responsible for bringing him to England and who, as an impre?sario, concertmaster, and quartet leader, was an important presence on the London music scene.
Haydn's harmonic language is extremely advanced in this work, with a great number of "chromatic" notes (these are half-steps outside the principal key, whose function is to increase the tension). Also, having set the stage for a con?trasting second theme, Haydn introduces a new version of his first theme instead; by using this "monothematic" construction, he achieves an un?usually high degree of motivic unity in many of his works from the 1790s.
On the surface, the second movement is a simple song--but that simplicity is deceptive, for there are plenty of harmonic adventures in the mu?sic, the most striking being two long-held chords in what is the most distant key possible in relation to the principal tonality. This represents a musical "problem" situation that is eventually resolved by a return to the home key. Yet, since the foreign key was so distant, the modulation back to the start?ing point has to be gradual, in a carefully planned process involving a number of steps that make the transition seamless and almost imperceptible.
We find the same apparent simplicity con?cealing a great deal of sophistication in the third and fourth movements as well. The "oompah" bass at the beginning of the minuet sets the tone for a folklike Landler, but the continuation takes off in some surprising new directions. The Trio or middle section is more subdued; here Haydn plays with the length of the phrases, which are sometimes longer and sometimes shorter than the standard musical period of 4+4 measures.
A contradanse melody receives the "royal treatment" in the finale. Haydn relies heavily on counterpoint: each instrument is rhythmically and thematically independent from the others. Yet the composer contrasts contrapuntal complexity with textures of a very different kind: the work ends on a long drone played by the viola and the cello, over which the two violins offer a final restate?ment of the main contradanse melody.
Magyar Madness
David Del Tredici
Born March 16, 1937 in Cloverdale, California
Magyar Madness is a 35-minute clarinet quintet in three movements of wildly varying lengths. The first movement, "Passionate Knights," is 11 minutes; the second, "Contentment (Interlude)," a chaste four; and the finale, "Magyar Madness", a whopping 20 minutes long. The work, commis?sioned by Music Accord for David Krakauer and the Orion String Quartet, is also dedicated to these remarkable artists.
The idea of creating a finale that hugely overshadows prior movements was inspired by an incident early in my composing career. The Juil-liard String Quartet was performing the String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat Major, Op. 130--but with a twist. The usual finale was replaced by the nearly 20-minute-long Grosse Fugue, Op. 133, which, it tums out, was the finale Beethoven had originally intended for the piece. (Because the Grosse Fugue was so bewildering, Beethoven's friends after the premiere persuaded him to write a shorter, more conservative, finale--which, sur?prisingly, Beethoven did. And so the work has since been played.) When I heard the Juilliard's reconstitution, I was electrified. The enormous fi?nale changed everything. Earlier movements that had seemed substantial were now dwarfed. All the weight of the piece had shifted to the end,
making it seem that the best had been saved for last. As an example of musical design, this experi?ence stayed with me.
In Magyar Madness, the first movement be?gins with a fiery clarinet cadenza punctuated by strings and leads to an impassioned main theme. Moving through a series of contrasting motives-some perky, some dramatic--the movement di?vides into two halves, the second of which is a varied reprise of the first (like a sonata form with?out a development). The lengthy, dramatic coda then acts as a kind of development and leads to a second, more reposeful clarinet cadenza and a calm ending. This was, one could say, a "knight" well spent.
The short, quiet movement that follows is for muted strings alone. It is, in essence, a transcription of a song I wrote in 1998 for piano and baritone. The music--sweetly ardent, lyrical and contented-belies, perhaps, the text I set: a poem by Edward Field entitled "Street Instructions: At the Crotch."
The 20-minute finale is subtitled "Grand Ron?do a la Hongroise." The movement's title alludes to David Krakauer's performance group, Klezmer Madness! Mr. Krakauer, a specialist in klezmer (Jewish folk music of Eastern Europe), asked me to write something using that melismatic style. I told him, "Oy vey! Klezmer I can't do, but Hungarian I'll try." What I had in the back of my mind was Schubert's four-hand masterpiece, Divertissement a la Hongroise, Op. 54. In this piece, not only does Schubert give the harmony an oddly ethnic season?ing, but in the last movement--a Rondo--he intro?duces a quasi-Gypsy device that intrigued me: each repetition of the theme is increasingly ornamented, and the accompaniment grows more and more animated. The illusion is that the tempo is accelerat?ing--a wonderful way to enliven what is, after all, mere repetition. The idea of literally speeding up each appearance of a theme over the course of an entire movement--of creating a goulash of musi?cal frenzy--gripped me. The finale begins with the clarinet's return in a virtuosic cadenza. The music then settles into a "Hungarian" Rondo-theme in g minor, made up of even quarter-notes over a steadi?ly oscillating accompaniment. This Rondo-theme in further repetitions is systematically shortened: what were uniform quarter-notes become quartereighth patterns, then eighth notes, then eighth16ths, then finally, fastest of all, at four times the speed of the opening, there is a frantic version of the theme in running 16th-notes. Amid the ever-accelerating
Rondo sections are three contrasting episodes. The first, boisterous and energetic, is capped by a dra?matic reprise of the movement's opening clarinet cadenza. The second episode, in complete contrast, is (as the score says) "music from afar"--mysterious and pianissimo throughout. To that end, I ask the strings to use especially soft "practice" mutes and the clarinetist to play from offstage. The third epi?sode, which follows the second immediately, is wild and barbaric with (like dashes of paprika) hugely virtuosic clarinet flourishes--bringing out, to bor?row from Cole Porter, "the Gypsy in me!" As a coda and calming antidote, the rondo-theme reap?pears quietly--now, for the first time, in G Major-while the clarinet trails behind in canon. Eventually, though, the music rouses itself to close in a "prop?er" Hungarian frenzy.

K'vakarat (1994)
Osvaldo Golijov
Born December 5, 1960 in La Plata, Argentina
Osvaldo Golijov, born in Argentina, educated in Is?rael and the US, and now living in Massachusetts, is one of the most-performed composers of his generation. Large-scale compositions such as his Passion According to St. Mark and the opera Ay-danamar have brought him world fame. K'vakarat was originally written for cantor and string quar?tet and was later arranged for clarinet as the third movement in one of Golijov's signature works, Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind. The follow?ing is an excerpt from the composer's commen?tary on his work:
The third movement was written before all the others. It is an instrumental version of K'vakarat, a work that I wrote a few years ago for the Kronos Quartet and Cantor Misha Alexandrovich. The meaning of the word klezmer, "instrument of song," be?comes clear when one hears David Krakau-er's interpretation of the cantor's line. The K'vakarat chant on which the third movement is based is one of the most im?portant and most emotional prayers of the High Holiday liturgy, evoking the Last
Judgment: "Like a shepherd who herds his flock, making his sheep pass beneath his staff, so do You make the souls of the living pass before You, counting and re?cording them all."
The strings playing sulponticello (near the bridge) evoke the soft humming of Orthodox Jews in prayer. Then their har?monic tremolos (rapidly alternating notes) allude to the "shepherd's flute." The K'vakarat melody evolves into a free clari?net cadenza, freely elaborating on the ex?uberant melismatic style of Jewish chant. The original melody retums, growing gradually louder and faster, and ending in a relentlessly pounding series of powerful downbeats. After a very brief pause, there follows the postlude, in which the soft re?peated notes of the clarinet, as if coming "from afar," make everything suddenly seem like a distant memory.
Quartet No. 9 in C Major, Op. 59, No. 3,
"Razumovsky" (1806) Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 15 or 16, 1770 in Bonn, Germany Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Prince Andrey Razumovsky, the Russian Ambas?sador in Vienna, and the Princes Lichnowsky and Lobkowitz, two Viennese aristocrats to whom he was related by marriage, together received the dedications of more than a dozen major works by Beethoven. One might almost say that their "clan" underwrote a great part of what later became known as Beethoven's "heroic" or middle period.
The three quartets of Op. 59, known as the "Razumovsky" quartets, were written shortly af?ter the Symphony No. 3, Op. 55 ("Eroica") and the Piano Sonata No. 23 in f minor, Op. 57 ("Appas-sionata"). In those works, Beethoven made a bold leap into the future--music had never expressed such intense emotions before, nor had the formal conventions of music been changed so radically in such a short time. With Op. 59, Beethoven ex?tended his musical revolution to the quartet me?dium, producing three masterworks after which the genre was never the same again.
The String Quartet in C Major, the third in the set, is a lively and dynamic work that is definitely "heroic" in the boldness of its themes. The first
movement begins with a slow introduction con?sisting of a mysterious sequence of chords that do not define any particular tonality and do not arrive at the home key of C Major until the very end. Even the "Allegro vivace" gets off to a somewhat tentative start, with an unaccompanied flourish for the first violin, punctuated by brief chords in the other instruments. The idea of amorphous material gradually becoming more organized in?forms the entire movement in fascinating ways. By the development section, the loose textures of the exposition are solidified into a strict canon based on a two-note pattern. The violin flourish that serves as the movement's first theme is lav?ishly ornamented when it retums to announce the recapitulation.
The second movement, "Andante con moto quasi Allegretto," has "an aura of remote, almost mythical melancholy and remoteness," in the words of William Kinderman, author of an excel?lent book on Beethoven's music. Kinderman, like many authors before him, wondered whether Beethoven attempted here to "capture a Rus?sian character in music." (This quartet, unlike its two companions, does not contain an explicitly labeled theme russe.) The rhythmic flow, surpris?ingly, remains unchanged throughout while the music traverses many different keys. The mysteri?ous first theme features the "exotic" augmented second interval while the second theme evokes a graceful dance. A haunting new melody is heard at the end of the movement, in a coda that seems to vanish in a Romantic mist.
The graceful third-movement Minuet is an?other nod to the past, for by 1806 Beethoven was much more likely to write fast-paced, surprise-filled scherzos in both chamber and symphonic music. The minuet revisits a familiar landscape with a great deal of nostalgia, yet in the trio sec?tion Beethoven strikes a more modern note, with some characteristic offbeat accents (a device he was particularly fond of) and an unusually high first violin part. The recapitulation of the minuet is followed by an extensive coda, introducing a sad, minor-key variation of the minuet theme that leads directly into the last movement.
The finale is a perpetual motion that begins as a fugue whose lengthy subject is introduced by the viola. By the time all four instruments have entered, fugal counterpoint gives way to a chordal texture; the two ways of writing alternate throughout. The extremely fast tempo generates a
high level of excitement that culminates in the sur?prise rest just before the end, after which the mad rush continues with even more fire than before.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Orion String Quartet is one of the most sought-after ensembles in the US. The Quartet remains on the cutting edge of program?ming with numerous commissions from compos?ers Chick Corea, Alexander Goehr, John Harbison, Leon Kirchner, Marc Neikrug, Peter Lieberson, and Wynton Marsalis, and enjoys a creative partner?ship with the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Com?pany. The members of the Orion String Quartet-violinists Daniel Phillips and Todd Phillips (brothers who share the first violin chair equally), violist Steven Tenenbom, and cellist Timothy Eddy-have worked with such legendary figures as Pablo Casals, Rudolf Serkin, Isaac Stern, Pinchas Zuker-man, Yo-Yo Ma, Peter Serkin, Andras Schiff, mem?bers of TASHI and the Beaux Arts Trio, as well as the Budapest, Vegh, Galimir, and Guarneri String Quartets. The Quartet serves as Quartet-in-Res-idence at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and New York's Mannes College of Music and, as of the 0708 season, has been appointed Resident Quartet at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music.
During the 0708 concert season the Quartet partners with clarinetist David Krakauer to perform
a program featuring David Del Tredici's new work, Magyar Madness, commissioned by Music Accord specifically for the ensemble. The Orion will also collaborate with Leon Fleischer at Ravinia and Ida Kavafian and David Soyer in Philadelphia this fall.
The Quartet's recordings reflect its musical diversity. For Sony Classical, the Orion recorded Wynton Marsalis's first classical composition for strings, At the Octoroon Balls (String Quartet No. 1). Commissioned by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the work was written for and premiered by the ensemble. Other critically ac?claimed recordings include Dvorak's String Quartet No. 12 in F Major, "American"; his Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81 with Peter Serkin; and Men?delssohn's Octet in E-Flat Major for Strings, with the Guarneri String Quartet; all on Arabesque.
The members of the Quartet maintain a strong dedication to the next generation of musical artists and serve on the faculties of the Mannes College of Music, Curtis Institute of Mu?sic, The Juilliard School, Queens College, and Rut?gers University, where they teach private lessons, give chamber music classes and offer intensive coaching programs for young professional string quartets. They have also served as faculty mem?bers of the Isaac Stern Chamber Music Workshop at Carnegie Hall and the Summer Institute for Ad?vanced Quartet Studies in Aspen.
Heard frequently on National Public Radio's Performance Today and WNYC Live, the Orion String Quartet has appeared three times on ABC's Good Morning America, on A&E's Breakfast with
the Arts, and on PBS's Live from Lincoln Center. In October 2004, they partici?pated in the first WNYC Radio collabo?ration with BBC World Service's popu?lar syndicated program, Music Party. This special performance heard in New York and over 40 countries worldwide features works by Haydn, Beethoven, Ravel, Bartbk, Chick Corea, and Wyn-ton Marsalis. Additionally, the Quartet was photographed with Drew Barry-more by Annie Leibovitz for the April 2005 iss'je of Vogue.
Formed in 1987, the Quartet chose its name from the Orion constellation as a metaphor for the unique personal?ity each musician brings to the group in its collective pursuit of the highest musical ideals.
Internationally acclaimed David Krakauer rede?fines the notion of a concert artist. Known for his mastery of myriad styles including classical chamber music, Eastern European Jewish klezmer music, and avant-garde improvisation, Mr. Krakau?er lies way beyond "cross-over." His best-selling classical and klezmer recordings further define his brilliant tone, virtuosity, and imagination.
Mr. Krakauer is also in demand worldwide as a guest soloist with the finest ensembles. Re?cent collaborations have included work with the Tokyo String Quartet, the Kronos Quartet, the Lark Quartet, Eiko and Koma, the Orquesta Sinfo-nica de Barcelona, and the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra. He had an eight-year tenure with the Naumburg Award-winning Aspen Wind Quintet, and has also has enjoyed enduring relationships with Summer festivals including the Marlboro Mu?sic Festival, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and the Aspen Music Festival.
In the Spring of 2003 Mr. Krakauer per?formed at Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall as soloist with the Kronos Quartet in a performance of their renowned collaboration on Osvaldo Golijov's The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind. In 2004 he was invited to perform with his band, Klezmer Madness!, for the inaugural season of Carnegie Hall's new theater, Zankel Hall. That program in?volved a collaboration with renowned jazz pianist Uri Caine. He also performed at Zankel in a pro?gram with Dawn Upshaw of Golijov's Ayre which was released as a CD on Deutsche Grammophon, and which continues to tour. Mr. Krakauer per?formed music written for him by Osvaldo Golijov for the BBC documentary Holocaust, A Music Me?morial from Auschwitz, which won the Interna?tional Emmy in the performance category (2005). 2007 was a busy year for Mr. Krakauer in which
he performed in the New York premiere of the string orchestra version of the Golijov work, then toured with the Orion String Quartet featuring a new work by composer David del Tredici commis?sioned specifically for them by Music Accord. Also in 2007, he premiered a new clarinet concerto composed for him by Ofer Ben-Amots at Colo?rado Music Festival under the baton of Michael Christie, and with the Walla Walla Symphony.
Mr. Krakauer's discography contains some of the most important klezmer recordings of the past decade. His first release on the prestigious French jazz label Label Bleu (harmonia mundi usa), A New Hot One! was hailed a masterwork. His CD The Twelve Tribes, released in Fall 2002, was designated "Album of the Year" in the jazz category for the Preis der deutschen Schallplat-tenkritik in Germany. His newest release entitled Bubbemeises: Lies My Gramma Told Me, marks the first full collaboration between Mr. Krakauer and sampler master Socalled. Mr. Krakauer cites this CD as "...a whole new chapter in my life as a composer, a musician and a producer." Other CDs include the aforementioned recordings with the Kronos Quartet and with Dawn Upshaw, as well as chamber music recordings on the Musical Heri?tage and New York Philomusica labels, and two CDs in the Milken Archives series on American Jewish music recently released by Naxos.
Mr. Krakauer has had major profiles in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Internation?al Herald Tribune, and Downbeat, Jazz Times, Jazz-iz, and Chamber Music magazines. He is on the clarinet and chamber music faculties of Mannes College of Music, the Manhattan School of Music and the Bard College Conservatory of Music.
This evening's performance marks the Orion String Quartet's fourth performance under UMS auspices. The Quartet made their debut in 1996 with the Guarneri String Quartet at Rack-ham Auditorium.
Tonight's performance marks David Krakauer's second UMS appearance, following his debut in 2007 at Rackham Auditorium with Klezmer Madness! and Socalled.

As an independent council drawing on the diverse membership of the University of Michigan community, the UMS Student Advisory Committee works to increase student interest and involvement in the various pro?grams offered by UMS by fostering increased communication between UMS and the student community, promoting awareness and accessi?bility of student programs, and promoting the student value of live performance. For more information or to participate on the Committee, please call 734.615.6590.
There are many ways to support the efforts of UMS, all of which are critical to the success of our season. We would like to welcome you to the UMS family and involve you more closely in our exciting programming and activities. This can happen through corporate sponsorships, business advertising, individual donations, or through volunteering. Your financial investment andor gift of time to UMS allows us to continue connecting artists and audiences, now and into the future.
When you advertise in the UMS program book you gain season-long visibility among ticket buyers while enabling an important tradition of providing audiences with the detailed program notes, artist biographies, and program descrip?tions that are so important to the performance experience. Call 734.764.6833 to learn how your business can benefit from advertising in the UMS program book.
As a UMS corporate sponsor, your organization comes to the attention of an educated, diverse and growing segment of not only Ann Arbor, but all of southeastern Michigan. You make possible one of our community's cultural treas?ures, and also receive numerous benefits from your investment. For example, UMS offers you a range of programs that, depending on your level of support, provide a unique venue for:
Enhancing corporate image
Cultivating clients
Developing business-to-business relationships
Targeting messages to specific demographic groups
Making highly visible links with arts and education programs
Recognizing employees
Showing appreciation for loyal customers
For more information, please call 734.647.1176.
We could not present our season without the invaluable financial support of individual donors. Ticket revenue only covers half of the cost of our performances and educational events. UMS donors help make up the differ?ence. If you would like to make a gift, please fill out and mail the form on page P40 or call 734.647.1175.
UMS Advisory Committee
The UMS Advisory Committee is an organiza?tion of over 70 volunteers who contribute approximately 7,000 hours of service to UMS each year. The purpose of the Advisory Committee is to raise funds for UMS's nationally-acclaimed arts education program through the events listed below. In addition, Advisory Committee members and friends provide assis?tance in ushering at UMS youth performances and assist in various other capacities through?out the season. Meetings are held every two months and membership tenure is three years. Please call 734.647.8009 to request more information.
Delicious Experiences
These special events are hosted by friends of UMS. The hosts determine the theme for the evening, the menu, and the number of guests they would like to entertain. It's a wonderful way to meet new people!
Ford Honors Program and Gala May 10, 2008
This year's program will honor renowned flutist James Galway as he receives the UMS Distinguished Artist award. Following the program and award presentation, the UMS Advisory Committee will host a gala dinner to benefit UMS Education programs. Please call 734.647.8009 for more information.
On the Road with UMS
Last September, over 300 people enjoyed an evening of food, music, and silent and live auc?tions, netting more than $80,000 to support UMS educational programs.
UMS Ushers
Without the dedicated service of UMS's Usher Corps, our events would not run as smoothly as they do. Ushers serve the essential functions of assisting patrons with seating, distributing pro?gram books, and providing that personal touch which sets UMS events apart from others.
The UMS Usher Corps is comprised of over 500 individuals who volunteer their time to make your concert-going experience more pleasant and efficient. Orientation and training sessions are held each fall and winter, and are open to anyone 18 years of age or older. Ushers may commit to work all UMS perform?ances in a specific venue or sign up to substi?tute for various performances throughout the concert season.
If you would like information about becoming a UMS volunteer usher, contact our Assistant Ticketing Manager, Front of House, Suzanne Davidson, at 734.615.9398 or e-mail
September 1, 2006-November 1, 2007
Thank you to those who make UMS programs and presentations possible. The cost of presenting world-class performances and education programs exceeds the rev?enue UMS receives from ticket sales. The difference is made up through the gener?ous support of individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies. We are grateful to those who have chosen to make a difference for UMS! This list includes donors who made an annual gift to UMS between September 1, 2006 and November 1, 2007. Due to space constraints, we can only list those who donated $250 or more. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this list. Please call 734.647.1175 with any errors or omissions. Listing of donors to endowment funds begins on page P46.
