FROM THE U-M PRESIDENT
Welcome to this University Musical Society (UMS) performance. At the University of Michigan we are proud of UMS and of the world-class artists and ensembles it brings each season to the University and southeast Michigan.
We are also proud of the outstanding educa?tional programs UMS offers to people of all ages and the new works in dance, theater, and music it commissions and premieres. Through the U-
UMS Partnership Program, the University is pleased to pro?vide support to UMS as it car?ries out its commitment to education, creation, and pres?entation, paralleling the University's commitment to teaching, research, and public engagement.
UMS offers a variety of programs designed to engage
U-M students in the arts. These include programs that provide academic context and background for arts performances, or combine arts performances with social activities; initiatives to make ticket pur?chases more affordable and convenient; and opportunities for students to gain direct experience in arts administration. The programs include:
Curricular Connections: The live performing arts can often help illuminate what cannot be taught in the traditional classroom setting. Accordingly, UMS works with its U-M academic partners to offer many points of entry for students to become engaged in the arts through classroom-based events. These include in-class lectures by UMS artists; master classes; panels and symposia; lunches or other informal events with the artists; and opportunities for technical theater students to "shadow" professional counterparts during actual performances. Faculty members have also designed special courses to complement UMS programs.
Student Discount Ticket Programs: UMS
offers students three ways to purchase discounted tickets to UMS events: Half-Price Student Ticket Sales, Rush Tickets, and UMS Rush Bucks. Each year, U-M students purchase more than 17,000 discounted tickets, saving more than $375,000.
Arts & Eats: Launched during Winter Semester 2006, Arts & Eats is an initiative pairing perform?ance attendance with a social function in hopes that, as students meet new people who are also interested in attending arts events, they will con?tinue to attend more frequently. The popular pro?gram combines a pizza dinner, a brief talk about the artist or program (often a graduate student), and a ticket to that evening's performance, all for $15. The project is a collaborative effort between Arts at Michigan, the U-M Alumni Association, and the U-M Credit Union.
Work-Study and Intern Students: UMS works to provide meaningful mentorship experiences for all of its part-time student employees and volun?teers, offering high-quality, high-responsibility positions in each department and unique learning experiences at both UMS and at professional con?ferences and seminars. Evidence of the program's success can be seen in the commitment of student interns to the field of arts management: 30 of the UMS staff began their careers as UMS interns, and many other interns continue to work in the performing arts field.
In addition to UMS events, I encourage you to attend University performances, exhibitions, and cultural activities offered by our faculty and stu?dents across the campus. To learn more about arts and culture at Michigan, please visit the University's website at www.umich.edu.
Sincerely,
Mary Sue Coleman
President, University of Michigan
FROM THE UMS PRESIDENT
Welcome to this UMS performance. The entire UMS family is grateful that you're here. We hope you'll enjoy the experience and attend more UMS events during our 131st season. You'll find a listing of events on page 2 of your program insert.
There are lots of things I'd like you to know about UMS, and you'll discover many of them elsewhere in this program book. Here are four things I'd especially like you to know:
1. Guest artists tell us all the time that they love you, the UMS audience, and that you're a major reason they want to come back.
Why Because you are knowledgeable, apprecia?tive, open to adventuresome programming, include lots of students, know when to maintain your silence at the end of one piece and when to applaud with enthusiasm at the end of another, and-here's what amazes them-you constitute the largest audience on most international tours although Ann Arbor is the smallest tour stop by far. These were the very things that the Berlin Philharmonic told us at the end of a tour that included Moscow, Bonn, Paris, London, New York, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago...and Ann Arbor. Look who's coming back to Hill on November 17.
2. The special relationship between UMS and U-M is greatly admired--and envied--by pre?senters at other major research universities.
Why A long time ago U-M and UMS leaders saw the benefit of having UMS be a separate non?profit organization with a deep affiliation with U-M, and this unique arrangement has served both institutions extraordinarily well. Over the years UMS has created significant educational partner-
ships with 57 academic units and 175 individual fac?ulty members, and has developed great relation?ships with U-M students who now constitute 21 of our audience. UMS rents the remarkable performance venues both on campus and in the Ann Arbor communi?ty for most of its events, but has the freedom to create
its own venues in alternative spaces, like the Sports Coliseum, Michigan Union, or Arboretum, if these spaces can better serve the artist's vision.
3. UMS is a significant player in southeastern Michigan's revitalization efforts. UMS board and staff representatives serve on economic development task forces throughout the region.
. you constitute the largest audience most international tours althougf Ann Arbor is the smallest tour stop by far.
With arts and culture as a key driver of quality of life, and thus a prime motivator for companies choosing new loca?tions or recruiting new talent, UMS often hosts visiting corporate representatives.
With arts and culture as a key driver of quality of life, and thus a prime motivator for companies choosing new locations or recruiting new talent, UMS often hosts visiting corporate representatives. When the Royal Shakespeare Company was here three years ago for an exclusive US residency, UMS, working in partnership with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Ann Arbor SPARK, and the Ann Arbor Convention and Visitors Bureau, hosted 10 corporate executives from around the country to familiarize them with the rich cultural, educational, and other quality-of-life assets in our community. The result: two compa?nies chose to locate here.
4. Volunteers are central to everything we do.
A 500-person usher corps, a 150-voice UMS Choral Union, a 93-member Senate, student interns, a Teacher Advisory Committee, a National Council, a Corporate Council, and countless others help us with strategic planning, special event planning, fund-raising, project-based assistance, backstage support, and promoting performances. The hours donated by our talented 90-member Advisory Committee equal the effort of four-and-a-half full-time staff members. Among the hardest working volunteers are the 36 members of the UMS Board of Directors. On July 1, UMS welcomed six new members to the board: David Canter, Julia Donovan Darlow, Joel D. Howell, S. Rani Kotha, Stephen G. Palms, and Sharon Rothwell. Also serving on the Board this year is
Advisory Committee Chair Janet Callaway. Newly elected officers are Chair James C. Stanley, Vice Chair David J. Herzig, Secretary Martha Darling, and Treasurer Robert C. Macek
Completing six years of distinguished service are Michael C. Allemang, Aaron P. Dworkin, Carl W. Herstein, and A. Douglas Rothwell. Carl Herstein will remain on the Board as Past Chair for the coming season. We simply couldn't do business without the support of all of these volunteers, who collectively donate over 45,000 hours each year.
Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions, comments, or problems...or if you'd like to become a UMS volunteer. If you don't see me in the lobby, send me an e-mail message at kenfisch@umich.edu or call me at 734.647.1174.
And thanks again for coming to this event.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
FROM UMS CHAIRMAN, JIM STANLEY
How fortunate we are to be part of a UMS audience that values and supports the performing arts. That is of little surprise given the role UMS has in inspir?ing us, enriching our community, and broadening our understandings of each other. Be it the sound of music, the movement of dance, or the voice of the?ater, UMS has brought high quality performances and new experiences from some of the world's most distinctive artists to audiences for 130 years. The result is that UMS is regarded as one of the most respected presenting organizations in the country.
The artistic expressions experienced at UMS events occur in diverse venues, all of which create an unusual bond between the performers and audience. The sea?soned attendee and the newcomer each quickly grasp this unique connection. When UMS performances conclude, the artists know they have been understood and deeply appreciated by the audience. Lasting ovations and the knowledgeable chatter of those leaving the hall reflect the maturity of our patrons. That atmos?phere is not always so visible in other halls, and for the performers it establishes a special tie to UMS. It's been that way for generations, and for good reasons.
Today's challenging times of world conflict and economic stresses are not new to us. It is important to remember that our forbearers have sustained their emotional and intellectual health by revisiting their cultural roots, and so will we. UMS plays a critical role in our own well being. The 20092010 season provides such an example, be it with the classical music of the Berlin Philharmonic, the moods of Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, the singing of Patti LuPone or the Vienna Boys Choir, the movement of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago ensemble, the voices of London's Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, or the wit of The New Yorker maga?zine's music critic Alex Ross. That's just a small bit of what UMS is doing for us this season. It just doesn't get any better, anywhere.
The UMS Board and I encourage all of you to stand with us and the entire UMS team. Engage yourself in the experiences afforded by UMS. Attend many of this season's UMS performances and dare yourself to be exposed to the different sounds and colors that are part of our ever-shrinking planet. Become a donor and enjoy the pride in being among those that fund more than half the expenses of bringing worldwide performances to our doors each year. Learn about us and talk to us at www.ums.org. We like to listen.
Participate as advocates for the cultural contributions that UMS offers to our greater community. Do it for yourselves and those who follow. We owe so much to the many who preceded us and made UMS what it is today. They have set an exceptional standard. And remember, how very fortunate we are.
Sincerely,
James C. Stanley
Chair, UMS Board of Directors

Non-Smoking Venues
University of Michigan policy forbids smoking in any public area, including the lobbies and restrooms.
Start Time
UMS makes every effort to begin concerts at the published time. Most of our events take place in the heart of central campus, which does have limited parking and may have several events occurring simultaneously in different theaters. Please allow plenty of extra time to park and find your seats.
Latecomers
Latecomers will be asked to wait in the lobby until seated by ushers. Most lobbies have been outfitted with monitors andor speakers so that latecomers will not miss the performance.
The late-seating break is determined by the artist and will generally occur during a suitable repertory break in the program (e.g., after the first entire piece, not after individual movements of classical works). There may be occasions where latecomers are not seated until intermis?sion, as determined by the artist. UMS makes every effort to alert patrons in advance when we know that there will be no late seating.
UMS tries to work with the artists to allow a flexible late-seating policy for family perform?ances.

UMS HISTORY
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?ing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over the past 130 years, strong leadership coupled with a devoted community has placed UMS in a league of internationally recognized performing arts presenters. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for this rich and varied history, balanced by a commit?ment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in this new mil?lennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nur?ture, 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 Simmons 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.
Many Choral Union members also belonged to the University, and the University Musical Society was established in December, 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year presented a series of concerts featuring local and visiting artists and ensembles.
Since that first season in 1880, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the very best from the full spectrum of the performing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theater. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies, and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction, and innovation. UMS now hosts 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 eight different Ann Arbor venues.
The UMS Choral Union has likewise expanded its charge over its 130-year history. Recent collaborations have included the Grammy Award-winning recording of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience (2004), John Adams's On the Transmigration of Souls with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2007), Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13 ("Babi Yar") with the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg (2006), and Orff's Carmina Burana during Maestro Leonard Slatkin's opening weekend.
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 organiza?tion that supports itself from ticket sales, corpo?rate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.
UMS VENUES AND BURTON MEMORIAL TOWER
Hill Auditorium
Originally built in 1913, a $38.6-million dollar renovation overseen by Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects has updated Hill's infrastructure 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, the reworking of the west barrier-free ramp and loading dock, and improvements to landscaping. Hill Auditorium re-opened to the public in January 2004.
Interior renovations included the demolition of lower-level spaces to ready the area for future improvements, the creation of additional rest-rooms, the improvement of barrier-free circula?tion by providing elevators and an addition with ramps, the replacement of seating to increase patron comfort, introduction of barrier-free seating and stage access, the replacement of theatrical performance and audio-visual sys?tems, and the complete replacement of mechanical and electrical infrastructure systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Hill Auditorium seats 3,575.
Lydia Mendessohn Theatre
Notwithstanding an isolated effort to establish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS began presenting artists in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in 1993 when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the inti?mate 658-seat theater as part of the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. This season the superla?tive Mendelssohn Theatre hosts UMS's Jazz Series concert presentations of the Bill Charlap Trio and The Bad Plus.
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, together with their son Philip, wished to make a major gift to the University. The Powers were immediately interested in supporting the University's desire to build a new theater, realizing that state and fed?eral governments were unlikely to provide finan?cial support for the construction of a 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 provid?ing 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 features 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 current season.
Rackham Auditorium
Seventy 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 strong?ly in the importance of the study of human his?tory 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 establish 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 pres?ent church seats 1,000 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 rever?berant sanctuary has made the church a gather?ing place for the enjoyment and contemplation 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.

Narration for The Balanchine Couple by Suzanne Farrell O The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
The Suzanne Farrell Ballet is the Kennedy Center's own ballet company.
Generous support for The Suzanne Farrell Ballet is provided by The Shen Family Foundation and Emily Williams Kelly.
Major support is provided by The Suzanne Farrell Ballet Advancement Committee. Additional support is provided by Elizabeth and Michael Kojaian.
In just over a decade, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet has evolved from an educational program of the Kennedy Center to a highly lauded ballet company. The Suzanne Farrell Ballet has performed annually at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC and has toured both nationally and internationally. To date, the Company has over 40 ballets in its repertoire, including works by Ms. Farrell's mentors George Balanchine, Maurice Bejart, and Jerome Robbins.
In June 2005, the Company collaborated with The National Ballet of Canada to restage Balanchine's Don Quixote. The evening-length ballet was originally created in 1965 by George Balanchine specifically for Ms. Farrell and is unique to The Suzanne Farrell Ballet. The Company traveled to the Edinburgh International Arts Festival in 2006 to present this landmark revival.
Committed to carrying forth the legacy of George Balanchine through performances of his classic ballets, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet announced the formal creation of the Balanchine Preservation Initiative in February 2007. This initiative serves to introduce rarely seen or "lost" Balanchine works to audiences around the world. To date, the Company's repertoire includes nine Balanchine Preservation Initiative Ballets including Ragtime (BalanchineStravinsky), Divertimento Brillante (BalanchineGlinka), and Pithoprakta (Balanchine Xenakis).
The Company launched an Artistic Partnership outreach program in 2007. Since, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet has collaborated with Cincinnati Ballet and Ballet Austin. The mission of this initiative is to salute, support, and galvanize ballet companies throughout the US.
The Suzanne Farrell Ballet will return to Washington, DC for the Company's annual Kennedy Center engagement in March 2010. For more information, please visit www. suzannefarrellballet.org or find the Company on Facebook.
Suzanne Farrell is one of George Balanchine's most celebrated muses and remains a legendary figure in the ballet world. In addition to serving as Artistic Director of her own company, she is also a repetiteur for The George Balanchine Trust, the independent organization founded after the choreographer's death by the heirs to his ballets to oversee their worldwide

licensing and production. Since 1988 she has staged Balanchine's works for such companies as the Berlin Opera Ballet, the Vienna State Opera Ballet, the Royal Danish Ballet, the Paris Opera Ballet, the Kirov Ballet, the Bolshoi Ballet, as well as American companies, including those in Boston, Miami, Seattle, Cincinnati, Fort Worth, and New York. She was born in Cincinnati, and she received her early training at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.
Ms. Farrell joined Balanchine's New York City Ballet in the fall of 1961 after a year as a Ford Foundation scholarship student at the School of American Ballet. Her unique combination of musical, physical, and dramatic gifts quickly ignited Balanchine's imagination. By the mid 1960s, she was not only Balanchine's most prominent ballerina, she was a symbol of the era, and remains so to this day. She restated and re-scaled such Balanchine masterpieces as Apollo, Concerto Barocco, and Symphony In C. Balanchine went on to invent new pieces for her--Diamonds, for example, and Chaconne and Mozartiana, in which the limits of ballerina technique were expanded to a degree not seen before or since. By the time she retired from the stage in 1989, Ms. Farrell had achieved a career that is without precedent or parallel in the history of ballet.
During her 28 years on the stage, she danced a repertory of more than 100 ballets, nearly a third of which were composed expressly for her by Balanchine and other choreographers, including Jerome Robbins and Maurice Bejart. Her numerous performances with Balanchine's company (more than 2000), her world tours, and her appearances in television and movies have made her one of the most recognizable and highly esteemed artists of her generation. She is also the recipient of numerous artistic and academic accolades. Since the fall of 2000, Ms. Farrell has been a full-time professor in the dance department at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida.
In addition to her work for the Balanchine Trust, she is active in a variety of cultural and philanthropic organizations such as the New York State Council on the Arts, the Arthritis Foundation, the Professional Children's School, and the Princess Grace Foundation. Summit Books published her autobiography Holding On to the Air in 1990; Suzanne Farrell-Elusive Muse (directed by Anne Belle and Deborah Dickson) was an Academy Award nominee for "Best Documentary Film" in 1997.
No choreographer is more deserving of the title "the father of American ballet" than the great master, George Balanchine. In late 1933 an invitation from Lincoln Kirstein brought Balanchine to the US after a career as a dancer, ballet master, and choreographer that took him from Russia throughout Europe. Kirstein had been impressed by Balanchine's company, Les Ballets, in Paris and proposed that Balanchine come to the US to help him establish an American ballet company equivalent to the European ones. The first result of the Balanchine-Kirstein collaboration was the School of American Ballet, founded in early 1934; an institution that still exists today. Students of the school performed Balanchine's first ballet in the US as a workshop. Set to music by Tchaikovsky, Serenade premiered outdoors on a friend's estate near White Plains, New York.
In 1935 Kirstein and Balanchine set up a touring company of dancers from the school called The American Ballet. The same year brought an invitation from the Metropolitan Opera for The American Ballet to become its resident ballet and

for Balanchine to become the Met's ballet master. Tight funding, however, permitted Balanchine to stage only two completely dance-oriented works for the Met, a dance-drama version of Gluck's Orfeo and Eurydice and a Stravinsky program featuring a revival of one of Balanchine's first ballets, Apollo, plus two new works, Le Baiser de la Fee and Card Game.
Although Balanchine enjoyed much success critically and popularly with the Met, he left in early 1938 to teach at the school and to work in musical theater and in film. He and Kirstein assembled the American Ballet Caravan, which made a goodwill tour of Latin American countries featuring such new Balanchine ballets as Concerto Barocco and Ballet Imperial. From 1944 to 1946 Balanchine helped revitalize the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo by becoming artistic director.
Balanchine collaborated again with Kirstein in 1946 to form Ballet Society, a company which introduced New York subscription-only audiences over the next two years. In October of 1948 Morton Baum, the chairman of the City Center finance committee, was so impressed by a Ballet Society performance that he negotiated to have the
company join the City Center municipal complex (home to the New York City Drama Company and the New York City Opera) as the New York City Ballet.
The son of a composer, Balanchine gained knowledge of music early in life that far exceeds that of most choreographers. At the age of five, he began studying piano and enrolled in the Conservatory of Music and graduated in 1921 from the Imperial Ballet School in St. Petersburg. His extensive musical training made it possible for him to communicate with Stravinsky, and it enabled him to reduce orchestral scores on the piano and to translate music into dance.
Balanchine defended his technique of deemphasizing the plot in his ballets by saying, "A ballet may contain a story, but the visual spectacle, not the story, is the essential element.... It is the illusion created which convinces the audience, much as it is with the work of a magician. If the illusion fails, the ballet fails, no matter how well a program note tells the audience that it has succeeded." He will always be remembered for the calm and generous way in which he worked with his dancers.
In 1978 George Balanchine was among the first group of artists to receive the Kennedy Center Honors. Balanchine died in 1983 at the age of 79.
Holly Hynes (Costume Designer) has been the resident designer of the Suzanne Farrell Ballet since its inception in 1999. Ms. Hynes has designed over 140 ballets to her credit both in the US and abroad. Her work as been acclaimed on Broadway as well as at the Metropolitan Opera. Her work has been presented on the stages of the New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Houston Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, The Royal Ballet in London, National Ballet of Canada, The Norwegian National Ballet, and a new play at The Kennedy Center in the spring of 2008.
J. Russell Sandifer {Lighting Designer) is Co-chair of the Department of Dance at Florida State University. In addition to designing for The Suzanne Farrell Ballet, Mr. Sandifer has also designed lighting for several works for the Urban Bush Woman dance company and has worked almost 20 years with the Seaside Music Theater.

On Appreciation of Indian Classical Music
by Ravi Shankar
Indian classical music is principally based on melody and rhythm, not on harmony, counterpoint, chords, modulation, and the other basics of Western classical music.
The system of Indian music known as Raga Sangeet can be traced back nearly 2000 years to its origin in the Vedic hymns of the Hindu temples, the fundamental source of all Indian music. Thus, as in Western music, the roots of Indian classical music are religious. To us, music can be a spiritual discipline on the path to self-realization, for we follow the traditional teaching that sound is God--Nada Brahma. By this process individual consciousness can be elevated to a realm of awareness where the revelation of the true meaning of the universe--its eternal and unchanging essence--can be joyfully experienced. Our ragas are the vehicles by which this essence can be perceived.
The ancient Vedic scriptures teach that there are two types of sound. One is a vibration of ether, the upper or purer air near the celestial realm. This sound is called Anahata Nad or "un-struck" sound. Sought after by great enlightened yogis, it can only be heard by them. The sound of the universe is the vibration thought by some to be like the music of the spheres that the Greek Pythagoras described in the 6th century B.C. The other sound, Ahata Nad or struck sound, is the vibration of air in the lower atmosphere closer to the earth. It is any sound that we hear in nature or man-made sounds, musical and non-musical.
The tradition of Indian classical music is an oral one. It is taught directly by the guru to the disciple, rather than by the notation method used in the West. The very heart of Indian music is the raga: the melodic form upon which the musician improvises. This framework is established by tradition and inspired by the creative spirits of master musicians.
Ragas are extremely difficult to explain in a few words. Though Indian music is modal in character, ragas should not be mistaken as modes that one hears in the music of the Middle and Far Eastern countries, nor be understood to be a scale, melody per se, a composition, or a key. A raga is a scientific, precise, subtle, and aesthetic melodic form with its own peculiar ascending and descending movement consisting of either a full seven-note octave, or a series of six or
five notes (or a combination of any of these) in a rising or falling structure called the Arohana and Avarohana. It is the subtle difference in the order of notes, an omission of a dissonant note, an emphasis on a particular note, the slide from one note to another, and the use of microtones together with other subtleties that demarcate one raga from the other.
There is a saying in Sanskrit, "Ranjayathi iti Ragah," which means, "that which colors the mind is a raga." For a raga to truly color the mind of the listener, its effect must be created not only through the notes and the embellishments, but also by the presentation of the specific emotion or mood characteristic of each raga. Thus through rich melodies in our music, every human emotion, every subtle feeling in man and nature, can be musically expressed and experienced.
The performing arts in India--music, dance, drama, and poetry--are based on the concept of Nava Rasa, or the "nine sentiments." Literally, rasa means "juice" or "extract" but in this context we take it to mean "emotion" or "sentiment." The acknowledged order of these sentiments is as follows: Shringara (romantic and erotic), Hasya (humorous), Karuna (pathetic), Raudra (anger), Veera (heroic), Bhayanaka (fearful), Vibhatsa (disgustful), Adbhuta (amazement), Shanta (peaceful).
Each raga is principally dominated by one of these nine rasas, although the performer can also bring out other emotions in a less prominent way. The more closely the notes of a raga conform to the expression of one single idea or emotion, the more overwhelming the effect of the raga.
In addition to being associated with a particular mood, each raga is also closely connected to a particular time of day or a season of the year. The cycle of day and night, as well as the cycle of the seasons, is analogous to the cycle of life itself. Each part of the day--such as the time before dawn, noon, late afternoon, early evening, late night--is associated with a definite sentiment. The explanation of the time associated with each raga may be found in the nature of the notes that comprise it, or in historical anecdotes concerning the raga.
Although there are 72 "melas," or parent scales, upon which ragas are based, Indian music scholars have estimated that, with all their permutations and combinations, there exist over 6,000 ragas But a raga is not merely a matter of the ascending-descending structure. It must have its "chalan," or certain note patterns characteristic
of the raga; its principle important note (vadi); the second important note (samavadi); and its main feature known as "jan" (life) or "mukhda" (face), the cluster of a few notes by which a raga is immediately recognized.
In terms of aesthetics, a raga is the projection of the artist's inner spirit, a manifestation of his most profound sentiments and sensibilities brought forth through tones and melodies. The musician must breathe life into each raga as he unfolds and expands it. As much as 90 percent of Indian music may be improvised and because so very much depends on understanding the spirit and nuances of the art, the relationship between the artist and his teacher is the keystone of this ancient tradition. From the beginning, the aspiring musician requires special and individual attention to bring him to the moment of artistic mastery. The unique aura of a raga (one might say its "soul") is its spiritual quality and manner of expression, and this cannot be learned from any book.
Indian music is much more appreciated and respected today in the West. Many composers and musicians have been influenced by our music. The openness, willingness to learn, and sincere enthusiasm of western audiences are a continuing source of inspiration and delight.
Legendary virtuoso sitarist, composer, teacher, and writer Ravi Shankar is India's most esteemed musical ambassador and a singular phenomenon whose artistry crosses all cultural and musical boundaries. A student of the illustrious guru "Baba" Ustad Allaudin Khan, Mr. Shankar was already one of the brightest stars in India before coming to international attention in the 1960s. Since then, he has been the foremost pioneer in disseminating India's rich classical music tradition to the West.
The youngest son of a Bengali family, Ravi Shankar was born in 1920 in Varansi (Benares), the holiest of Indian cities. At the age of 10, he accompanied elder brother Uday Shankar and his company of dancers and musicians to Paris, where the younger Shankar attended school. He spent several years in the West absorbing different kinds of music before returning to India in 1938 to begin his career. He combined his concert performances with his work for All India Radio (1949-56) where he established the National Chamber Orchestra. As word of his virtuosity spread throughout India, then Europe, Asia, and the US, Mr. Shankar
embarked on the most extraordinary international careers in the history of contemporary music.
A prolific and sought-after composer, Ravi Shankar has written numerous works for Western collaborations, in addition to his many traditional ragas and faas. His Concerto for Sitar and Orchestra was commissioned and premiered by the London Symphony Orchestra under Andre Previn. A second sitar concerto, Raga-Mala, was commissioned and premiered by the New York Philharmonic under the direction of Zubin Mehta in 1980. Shankar's chamber works for sitar and other instruments includes violin-sitar compositions for the distinguished violinist Yehudi Menuhin and himself, and works for flute virtuoso Jean-Pierre Rampal, shakuhachi master Hosan Yamamoto, and koto virtuoso Musumi Miyashita. Shankar has enjoyed a close relationship with Philip Glass, collaborating with the composer on the 1990 album Passages and the recent multi-artist work Orion, which opened the 2004 Cultural Olympiad in Greece.
Ravi Shankar has composed extensively for film and ballet. His scores for Satyajit Ray's acclaimed Apu trilogy raised film music to a new standard of excellence, and he was nominated for both a Grammy and Oscar for his original score to Gandhi, the Academy Award-winning classic by Sir Richard Attenborough. He made history on both the British and Indian cultural scenes with the ballet Ghanashyam, which he wrote, composed, and choreographed.
Ravi Shankar is the recipient of many awards and honors including the Presidential Padma Vibhushan Award (1980) and the Award of Deshikottam, given by Vishawa Bharati and presented in December 1982 by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. He is an honorary member of the American Academy of the Arts and Letters and recipient of 12 honorary doctorates. In 1986, he became a member of the Rajya Sabha, India's Upper House of Parliament. He is a Fellow of the Sangeet Natak Academy and Founder President of The Research Institute for Music and the Performing Arts.
In 1999, the government of India honored Ravi Shankar by awarding him its highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna, or "Jewel of India." In 2000, Mr. Shankar received France's highest civilian award, the Commandeur de la Legion d'Honneur. In March 2001, the British High Commissioner and Lady Young awarded Ravi Shankar the Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
Ravi Shankar's extensive discography of more than 60 albums includes Angel Records' 1996 release In Celebration, a lavishly documented four-CD retrospective of his greatest recordings issued in honor of his 75th birthday, and the 2001 Angel release Full Circle, Carnegie Hall 2000. This was Mr. Shankar's first live-concert recording in nearly two decades for which he received the Grammy Award for "Best World Music Record." AngelEMI continues to release Mr. Shankar's albums, many of which were previously unavailable on CD.
Mr. Shankar continues to tour all over the world. He divides his time between India and the US, with regular visits to Europe and the Far East. He is the author of three books: My Music, My Life (in English), Rag Anurag (in Bengali), and Raga Mala (in English), an autobiography that was released in 1999.
Ravi Shankar has been named the "Godfather of World Music" by George Harrison and been given the title "Global Ambassador" by the World Economic Forum. However, there may be no greater tribute paid to this remarkable musician than the words of his colleague Yehudi Menuhin: "Ravi Shankar has brought me a precious gift and through him I have added a new dimension to my experience of music. To me, his genius and his humanity can only be compared to that of Mozart's."
Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar has emerged as one of the leading figures in World Music today. She is deeply rooted in Indian classical music, having studied exclusively with her father, the legendary Ravi Shankar, and is now one of the foremost performers in that tradition. In tandem with this, she has flourished as a performer and composer, exploring fertile ground in the crossover between Indian music and a variety of genres including electronica, jazz, flamenco, and Western classical music.
Born June 9,1981, Anoushka has been playing and studying the sitar with her father since she was nine. At age 13 she made her performance debut in New Delhi. That same .year, Anoushka entered the recording studio for the first time, to play "Adarini" on her father's album In Celebration. Two years later she made her debut as a conductor on her father's Chants of India album, produced by George Harrison. Shortly thereafter she signed an exclusive record contract with AngelEMI, and in the autumn of 1998 her first solo recording, Anoushka, was released to critical acclaim. Anourag (2000), Anoushka's second release, expanded upon and refined what she had previously recorded, and was followed by Live at Carnegie Hall (2001), which garnered her first Grammy nomination, making her the youngest-ever nominee in the World Music category.
Ravi and Anoushka
S. Rani Kotha, Deputy Director of U-M's Center for Global Health and member of UMS Board of Directors
There is something almost mystical about seeing Ravi and Anoushka Shankar perform together. My husband Howard and I have been blessed to see the legendary father
daughter sitar players performing in two very different locales before this UMS performance. Our first experience took place during the Carnatic Music Festival in Chennai, India, in 2000 while we were living in India. In a packed auditorium filled with thousands, we were transported by the music far away from the heat and bustle of modern-day India. Our second experience was in 2005 at Boston's Symphony Hall. There, among a completely different crowd of music lovers, we were once again mesmerized by the music and intense concentration that envelop father and daughter as they perform together. To my husband, the sound of the sitar reminds him of his childhood, listening to The Beatles and other rock groups. To me, the sound of the sitar strikes an ancient chord in my soul, and I am instantly transported into a meditative state that reminds me of India and the land of my ancestors. Yet in the hands of the Shankars the sound of the sitar is at once both classical and modern, seamlessly melding ancient and contemporary together into an altogether new experience. We are delighted that we have an opportunity to see them again in our new home of Ann Arbor.
With three classical sitar recordings under her belt, she was in increasing demand as a touring artist, and over the next few years she established a growing international reputation as a classical sitarist, playing as many as 80 concerts per year.
A highlight of 2002 was the Concert for George, a tribute to the late George Harrison at London's Royal Albert Hall, in which she conducted a new composition written by her father, "Arpan," which featured Eric Clapton on solo guitar. Anoushka also performed Harrison's "The Inner Light" that evening. Spreading her wings, she turned to writing and acting: in 2002 she authored the book Bapi: The Love of My Life, an intimate biographical portrait of her father; and in 2004 she earned a "Best Supporting Actress" nomination from India's National Film Awards for her debut role in Dance Like a Man, the feature film by Pamela Rooks. That same year, she was chosen as one of 20 Asian Heroes by the Asia edition of Time magazine. She subsequently became the first Indian ambassador for the United Nations World Food Program.
While she continued to enjoy performing in the Indian classical realm and to tour with her father, on Rise, her fourth album, Anoushka composed, arranged, and produced her own music, performing with a handpicked ensemble of brilliant musicians. Fusing East and West, employing both acoustic and electric instrumentation, the album marked a new departure for Anoushka. Rise gave Anoushka another Grammy nomination in the "Best Contemporary World Music" category. In February 2006 she also became the first Indian to play at the Grammy Awards.
Anoushka soon formed the Anoushka Shankar Project in order to present her new non-classical ensemble compositions to a live audience. This group consists of instrumentalists from various musical styles, with changing personnel; the music always draws deeply from India's rich musical heritage, but the group simultaneously serves to maintain a clear distinction between this more experimental work and her classical Indian concerts.
In 2007 Anoushka collaborated with Karsh Kale, the Indian-American producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, to create the album Breathing Under Water, which demonstrated an even deeper grasp of the fusion of Eastern and Western music. This album features a rare guest appearance by her father, and well as contributions by her half-sister, Norah Jones, Sting, and others.
Her work is notable for the way she has applied
her expertise as a fine Indian classical musician, and the profundity of the Indian raga framework, to working with musicians from a range of traditions, creating innovative music that appeals to her own generation as much as to that of her father's.
Today, from her twin homes of New Delhi and California, she continues to stretch out in different directions. She has made guest appearances on recordings by Sting, Lenny Kravitz, and Thievery Corporation. Meanwhile her developing work with Western classical musicians has included performances with violinist Joshua Bell. In 2000 she appeared at the Evian Festival in a sitar-cello duet with Mstislav Rostropovich and in 1998 performed with flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal--on both sitar and piano. Anoushka has performed as soloist in performances of her father's First Concerto for Sitar and Orchestra, and in January 2009, was sitar soloist alongside the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for a series of concerts premiering his Third Concerto for Sitar and Orchestra.
Tanmoy Bose is one of the foremost tabla players of his generation representing the Calcutta gharana. Tanmoy Bose has performed with some of the greatest names in Indian classical music both in India and abroad. For 10 years he has been a regular accompanying artist to both Ravi and Anoushka Shankar. Mr. Bose is also credited with film scores and his Indo-jazz band Taaltantra.
Ravichandra Kulur gave his first solo recital at the age of 12. From this point on he has emerged as one of the most sought-after flutists from India, traveling the world for his solo concerts as well as performances of experimental music. Ravichandra Kulur is also a master of the art of playing kanjira (tambourine).

Synopsis
The vow
The King of Navarre and his three friends, Berowne, Longaville, and Dumaine, swear to devote themselves to three years of study, abstaining from all distractions, particularly of the female kind, with only Armado and Costard to entertain them. They are confounded, on signing the vow, when Berowne remembers that the Princess of France and her three ladies, Rosaline, Maria, and Katherine, attended by Boyet, are on an embassy to Navarre's court.
Love and letters
Armado has decided to arrest Costard for being in the company of a woman, thus breaking the King's edict--the woman being Jaquenetta, with whom Armado himself is in love. The ladies arrive, and the King and his lords fall in love with them. Armado frees Costard, on condition he delivers a note to Jaquenetta; Berowne charges Costard with a letter to Rosaline; and the two letters get mixed up.
The vow is broken
The four lords enter one by one and voice despair about their love for their particular woman, and one by one are overheard by the others. They decide to tear up their vow, and woo the ladies. They disguise themselves as Russians, but Boyet tells the ladies beforehand, and the ladies change identities with each other. The lords enter, and each woos the wrong woman. They leave, and on their return are mocked by the ladies.
The Nine Worthies
Armado then approaches theschoolmasterHolofernes and the curate Nathaniel to join with him, Costard, and the page, Moth, to present the Nine Worthies as entertainment to the nobles. This provides the nobles with many opportunities for comment and laughter. The mood changes when Marcade brings news that the Princess's father has died.
Marriage deferred
As the ladies prepare to leave, the lords affirm that all their expressions of love were genuine, but the Princess claims that everything they said was in jest. The ladies tell the lords that, if they are serious, they must carry out certain tasks for a year, and then return to offer marriage. The lords agree. Armado then presents the learned men in a dialogue between the owl and the cuckoo, representing winter and spring, by way of conclusion.
Synopsis adapted from Shakespeare's Words by David Crystal and Ben Crystal, Penguin, 2002. www.shakespeareswords.com
Sources
Unusually, no literary source is known for the story of Love's Labour's Lost, although the play has a certain basis in historical fact. It is, in fact, unique in Shakespeare's plays in portraying, if nominally, historical figures still living when the play was first performed. A King of Navarre (later Henry IV of France, 1553-1610) did keep about him two lords called the Due de Longueville and the Due de Biron. Biron (in Shakespeare, 'Berowne') even became known in England as an associate of the Earl of Essex when Essex led a force to France in support of Henry during the French civil war of 1589-92.
The lives of the real Henry and his courtiers were spent largely in the field or conducting affairs of state--but the King is known to have had one (very extended) holiday, at his family seat at Nerac in southwest France in the late 1570s. He was joined there by the wife from whom he had been separated for some years, Marguerite de Valois. She brought with her not only her mother, Catherine de Medici, but also a train of attractive young women to divert the King.
Theirs was a very open marriage. Gossip about the atmosphere of the King's long vacation may well have had some influence on the composition of Love's Labour's Lost. Theories advancing other, more arcane influences, such as the long-held view that Shakespeare was secretly representing an atheistic coterie around Sir Walter Raleigh (the so-called "school of night"), have now been discredited. While no direct source has been uncovered for the other characters in the play, it is clear they owe something to the clowns, pages, pedants, braggarts, and country priests of the Italian commedia dell'arte.
Early Performance and Publication
Shakespeare probably wrote Love's Labour's Lost in 1594-95. It would have been performed at the Theatre in Shoreditch, a forerunner to the Globe and the first substantial purpose-built playhouse in London. The title page of the first (surviving) edition of the play advertises the fact that it was presented before the Queen "this last Christmas" (meaning either 1596-97 or 1597-98). This would have been
at Whitehall Palace. The same quarto edition is the first play to bear Shakespeare's name on the title page-an indication, perhaps, of its author's rising status as well as that of the playwriting profession as a whole. The title page also boasts that it is a "newly corrected and augmented" version of the play, but this is probably an exaggeration. It is more likely to be a straightforward reprint of an earlier edition now lost. The text was set carelessly, probably from Shakespeare's original manuscript (or what scholars term "foul papers"). The play was reprinted in the 1623 First Folio of Shakespeare's plays, where the editors seem to have based their version largely on the quarto edition, but corrected it with reference to the company's promptbook.
Behind the text of Love's Labour's Lost there moves the shadow of its vanished sequel, Love's Labour's Won. Until the mid-20th century, the only external indication that such a play had ever existed could be found in a list of Shakespeare titles praised by the critic Francis Meres in his Palladis Tamia: Wit's Treasury of 1598:
As Plautus and Seneca are accounted the best for Comedy and Tragedy among the Latines: so Shakespeare among the English is the most excellent in both kinds for the stage; for Comedy, witness his Gentlemen of Verona, his Errors, his Loue labors lost, his Loue labours wonne, his Midsummers night dreame...
Since no copy of the play had yet turned up, scholars began to think that Meres may have been mistaken. But in 1953 someone noticed two pieces of very old scrap paper that had been used as backing for the spine of a book of 17th-century sermons. They turned out to be pages from the ledger of an Exeter stationer (or bookseller) recording business transacted in August 1603. On closer inspection it seemed that, within his stock of playbooks, he had once kept copies of the following:
marchant of vennis
taming of a shrew
knak to know a knave
knak to know an honest man
loves labor lost
loves labor won.
Performance notes by Nicholas Robins, Shakespeare's Globe.
Dominic Dromgoole, the director of this production, is also Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe. He was Artistic Director of the Oxford Stage Company (1999-2005) and the Bush Theatre in London (1990-1996), and Director of New Plays for the Peter Hall Company (19967). He has also directed at the Tricycle Theatre, in London's West End, and in America, and Romania. Dominic has written two books, The Full Room (2001) and Will & Me (2006). His previous work at the Globe includes King Lear, the 2007 production of Love's Labour's Lost, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra. This year he has also directed Romeo and Juliet and the world premiere of A New World, a new play by Trevor Griffiths about the great Anglo-American radical Thomas Paine.
Shakespeare's Globe is a unique resource dedicated to the exploration, enjoyment, and understanding of Shakespeare's work and the playhouse for which he wrote.
The project to reconstruct the Globe was initiated by the Chicago-born actor and director Sam Wanamaker, who spent decades raising funds and public interest for Shakespeare's most celebrated theater. The Globe is now one of the best-loved theaters in London and occupies a place at the center of a range of exciting artistic and educational activities.
The Globe Theatre is a faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse first built in 1599, where Shakespeare worked and for which he wrote many of his greatest plays. Each year the theater season runs from April to October with productions of the work by Shakespeare and modern authors, and plays to an audience of 350,000 who experience the 'wooden O' sitting in a gallery or standing as a groundling in the yard, just as they would have done 400 years ago. In recent years, Globe touring productions have also brought Shakespeare to theaters and historical sites around the UK and Europe. This tour of Love's Labour's Lost marks the third time The Globe Theatre has toured to North America. Previous productions were the award-winning Twelfth Night and Measure for Measure.
Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition is the world's largest exhibition devoted to Shakespeare and the theater in which he lived and worked. It explores the remarkable story of the Globe and brings Shakespeare's world to life using a range of interactive displays and live demonstrations.
Open throughout the year, Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition is one of the most exciting ways to discover and rediscover the Globe. A guided tour of the theater is included in the ticket price. Our guides conduct fascinating half-hour tours of the auditorium, describing the reconstruction process, bringing the space to life with colorful stories of the original theater and explaining the ways in which the Globe works today as an experimental theater.
Over 100,000 people of all agesand nationalities, from pre-school to postgraduates, participate in Globe Education's year-round program of public events, workshops, and courses. From October to April, all workshops and courses include practical work on the Globe stage. Globe Education also runs an extensive program in the local community and creates national and international outreach projects for students and teachers. Graduates and scholars are invited to participate in Globe Research seminars, symposia, and conferences and to make use of the Globe Library and Archive. Each year, Shakespeare's Globe provides approximately ten distinct educational programs for universities throughout the US.

LJMS nurtures the development of young artists and audiences with a yearlong collabo?rative performance, ticket discounts (see page P20), and occasional internship opportunities for outstanding high school students.
Breakin' Curfew
In a special collaboration with the Neutral Zone, Ann Arbor's teen center, UMS presents this annual performance highlighting the area's best teen performers. This show is curated, designed, marketed, and produced by teens under the mentorship of UMS staff. This sea?son's performance takes place on Saturday, May 15,2010.
UMS Family
The UMS Family Series was created to allow families to experience the magic of the per?forming arts together, irrespective of age. Most family performances feature shorter program lengths, a more relaxed performance-going environment, and special interactive opportuni?ties for kids with the artist or art form. The 0910 season includes four family performances: The Suzanne Farrell Ballet, Keith Terry and his Slammin' All-Body Band, Vienna Boys Choir (ages 4+, please), and Cyro Baptista's Beat the Donkey.
The 0910 Family Series is sponsored by TOYOTA

UMSSupport
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.
CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP AND ADVERTISING
Advertising
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.
Sponsorship
As a UMS corporate sponsor, your organization comes to the attention of an educated, diverse, and growing segment not only of 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:
Cultivating clients
Developing business-to-business relationships
Targeting messages to specific demographic groups
Enhancing corporate image
Making highly visible links with arts and education programs
Recognizing employees
Showing appreciation for loyal customers
For more information, please call 734.647.1176.
INDIVIDUAL DONATIONS
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 P36 or call 734.647.1175.
. UMS ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The UMS Advisory Committee is an organization of over 80 volunteers who contribute approxi?mately 7,000 hours of service to UMS each year. The Advisory Committee champions the mission and advances UMS's goals through community engagement, financial support, and other volun?teer service.
Advisory Committee members work to increase awareness of and participation in UMS programs through the Education Ambassador Committee, a new Community Ambassador proj?ect, ushering at UMS youth performances, and a partnership with the U-M Museum of Art (UMMA) Friends Board.
Meetings are held every two months and membership tenure is three years. Please call 734.647.8009 to request more information.
Raising money to support UMS Education Programs is another major goal of the Advisory Committee. The major fundraising events are:
Ford Honors Program and Gala: San Francisco Symphony Saturday, March 20, 2010
This year's program will honor the San Francisco Symphony (SFS) and Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT), Music Director. Founded in 1911, the SFS is widely considered to be among the country's most artistically adventurous arts institutions. Michael Tilson Thomas assumed his post as the Symphony's 11th Music Director in 1995. MTT's 13 seasons with SFS have been praised by crit?ics for innovative programming, for bringing the works of American composers to the fore, developing new audiences, and for an innova?tive and comprehensive education and commu?nity program.
Beginning the evening will be a Gala Dinner at the Michigan League, followed by the SFS concert. After the performance, guests can meet SFS musicians and MTT at an afterglow reception. Please call 734.647.8009 for 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. Several events are being planned for this season and will be announced soon.
Fifth Annual On the Road with UMS
In 2008, more than 300 people enjoyed an evening of food, music, and silent and live auctions, netting more than $72,000. This year's event was held on September 11 at Barton Hills Country Club.
ANNUAL FUND SUPPORT
July 1, 2008-August 1, 2009
Thank you to those who make UMS programs and presentations possible. The cost of presenting world-class performances and education programs exceeds the revenue UMS receives from ticket sales. The difference is made up through the generous 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 July 1, 2008 and August 1, 2009. 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 P44.
