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 educational programs UMS offers to people of all ages and of the new works in dance, theater, and music it com?missions and premieres. Through the U-MUMS
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 pro?grams 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.
UMS is a member of the University's Public Goods Council (PGC), a cluster of campus organizations dedicated to advancing scholarship and culture through music, works of art, special collections, historical archives, natural science resources, per?formance programs, coursework, and experiential learning. The PGC promotes collaboration in ways that enrich the educational and cultural experience on campus and in the community.
I encourage you to attend more UMS events and those offered by the other many outstanding arts and cultural organizations of the University. To learn more about these activities, 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. All of us associated with UMS are grateful that you're here. We hope you will enjoy the experience and attend more UMS events during our 131st season. You will find a listing of events on page 2 of this program book.
The UMS Fall 2009 Season. Many thanks to those of you who attended some of the out?standing events of the UMS Fall 2009 Season. Whether it was embracing a young artist making her UMS debut (cellist Alisa Weilerstein), laughing riotously at the behavior of the actors on and off the stage (Shakespeare's Globe Theatre's Love's Labour's Lost), or being totally captivated by the glorious sounds in the reverberant St. Francis sanctuary (Stile Antico), you demonstrated once again why artists like to come to Ann Arbor. You were totally engaged with them, listening intent?ly, absorbing their performances, and then letting them know how much you appreciate them. When I visited Sir Simon Rattle in his dressing room before his Ann Arbor debut as conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the first words out of his mouth were, "There was no way Ann Arbor would be left off this tour. The orchestra members insisted we return here." When I visited with him after the concert, he picked up where he left off, saying, "And now I know why. What a glorious hall--and what a remarkable audience! I could hear them listening."
UMS Strategic Plan. In January 2009, UMS began a strategic planning process with the assis?tance of external consultant Stephen Y. Nose of SYN Associates in Ann Arbor. Many members of the UMS community took part in gathering data through focus groups, personal interviews, sur?veys, and other means in assessing competition, trends, products, and our partnerships. The UMS Board approved key goals and objectives in the fall, and the UMS staff is working on the develop?ment of implementation strategies to achieve them. Many of the goals and objectives deal with internal matters related to staff development, board and staff succession, the UMS brand, and our relationship with key partners including the University of Michigan. The most important objectives are those that deal most directly with
our mission, which is "To inspire individuals and enrich communities by connecting audiences and artists in uncommon and engaging experiences." These include enabling UMS to take greater artis?tic and programmatic risks on an ongoing basis, increasing participation of emerging and new audiences in UMS programs, and creating deeper UMS experiences by providing new and renewed connection points for audiences and artists in both virtual and physical spaces. Stay tuned for
more information as we complete the strategies.
Ford Honors Program.
The 15th Ford Honors Program occurs on Saturday, March 20 during the residency of the San Francisco Symphony when we honor both the SFS and its music director, Michael Tilson Thomas, with the UMS Distinguished Artist
Award. The format takes a different approach this year. The gala dinner precedes the performance, and a champagne reception follows, both planned and organized by our dynamic Advisory Committee. A very brief awards presentation on the Hill stage precedes the performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 featuring the SFS and the UMS Choral Union. Look for more informa?tion on our website at www.ums.org.
Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions, comments, or problems. 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.
Thanks again for coming to this event. Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
The UMS Lobby
In June 2009, UMS was one of four organizations awarded an "Innovation Lab" grant by EMCArts, with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, to develop an idea that could have a profound impact on how they do business. UMS will launch a beta version of the project in February.
The UMS Lobby will expand and redefine what we mean by "the UMS experience." By combining online and live components in everything UMS does, we will enable a wide range of participants to engage more continuously and more deeply with each other, with the extraordinary history of UMS, with the artists we now present, and with the life of UMS in Ann Arbor and throughout the region.
The UMS Lobby is both a virtual and physical space where people meet, exchange ideas, and build relation?ships -a bridge between daily life and the special places we devote to artistic experiences. The UMS Lobby will include:
-Live preand post-performance events that extend the UMS experience
-A digitized historical archive that includes access to UMS's extraordinary 131-year history, including the opportunity to submit your own comments, memories, and observations about events that you've attended
-A multimedia blog with articles, video, audio, photos, and links
-Stories from patrons and others about the impact of UMS -in essence, a "living archive" that will grow with time and supplement the historical archive
-Conversation areas that include feeds from our facebook, twitter, and other networks, but that also provide a place to listen and to be heard
FROM UMS CHAIRMAN, JIM STANLEY
How fortunate we are to be part of a UMS audience experiencing artistic performanc?es that have the potential to transform lives. That is of little surprise given the role UMS has in inspiring 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 theater, UMS has brought extraordi?nary performances and new experiences from some of the world's most distinctive artists to us for 131 years. UMS is regarded as one of the country's most respected organizations bringing artists and audiences together. UMS makes a dif?ference.
UMS events are presented in many diverse venues, all of which are chosen to create an unusual bond between the performers and the audience. Both the seasoned attendee and the newcomer quickly grasp this unique connection. Lasting ovations and knowledgeable chatter of those leaving the hall let the artists know they have been deeply appreciated and understood. That atmosphere has established a special rela?tionship between UMS audiences and artists. It's been that way for generations.
But there is more than simply a few hours of respite from our busy lives. Our forbearers knew the importance of sustaining their emotional and intellectual spirit by revisiting the many cultural roots that surround them. And so do we. In today's times of world conflict and economic stress, UMS plays a most valuable role in sustain?ing our global community's well being. The 0910 season is a testament to that role. As a starter, the first half of the year witnessed the likes of the Berlin Philharmonic, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre of London, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet, and the Vienna Boys Choir. The second half offers the classical music of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony, Lang Lang at the piano and Julia Fischer on the violin, the moods of Wynton
Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, the singing of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the voices of St. Petersburg's Maly Drama Theater, the motion of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and the wit of The New Yorker music critic Alex Ross. These performances are a small bit of what UMS is doing for us now. It just doesn't get any better anywhere.
The UMS Board and I encourage you to engage yourself in the many experiences afford-
ed by UMS. Dare yourself to be exposed to the different sounds and colors that are part of our ever-shrinking planet. They are all here. Enjoy the pride in being among our individual and corporate donors whose contributions fund more than half the expenses of bringing worldwide artists to our doors each year. The
back of this program documents the wonderful support, both large and small, from our benefac?tors. Join them and participate as advocates for the cultural contributions that UMS offers to our greater community. Do it for yourself and for those who follow. Learn about us and talk to us at www.ums.org. We like to listen. And remem?ber how very fortunate you are to be part of the UMS difference.
Sincerely,
James C. Stanley
Chair, UMS Board of Directors

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 131 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 1879, 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 60 performances and more than 125 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in seven different Ann Arbor venues.
The UMS Choral Union has likewise expanded its charge over its 131-year history. Recent collaborations have included the Grammy Award-winning recording of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience (2004), Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13 ("Babi Yar") with the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg (2006), John Adams's On the Transmigration of Souls with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2007), and Orff's Carmina Burana during Maestro Leonard Slatkin's opening weekend as Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2008).
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 Mendelssohn 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.
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.
University of Michigan Museum of Art
The University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) is a dynamic meeting place for the arts that bridges visual art and contemporary cul?ture, scholarship and accessibility, and tradition and innovation. With the addition in March 2009 of the 53,000-square-foot Maxine and Stuart Frankel and the Frankel Family Wing and the restoration of historic Alumni Memorial Hall, UMMA ushered in a new era, a reimagining of the university art museum as a "town square" for the 21st century. With dramatically expand?ed galleries, special exhibition spaces that soar with new life, "open storage" galleries, and a range of lively educational and event spaces, UMS periodically presents events in multiple spaces throughout the museum.
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.

American Orchestras Summit at U-M: Creating Partnerships in Research and Performance
Tuesday, January 26-Thursday January 28, See website below for complete listing of sessions and times. Rackham Auditorium, 915 E. Washington Street
A landmark conference concerning the American orchestra will unearth the wide-reaching cultural impact that the orchestra has had in America, discerning what these institutions can tell us about our society. The conference will bring together arts administrators and scholars from across disciplines to explore two issues in particular: organizational structures and strategies, past and present, that have aided (or hindered) the orchestra's success; and the symbiotic relationship between an orchestra and its community. By considering the institutional history and practices of the American orchestra, we can better understand and address the challenges and opportunities of the present.
Participants include Joseph Horowitz (writer and consultant), Henry Fogel (Dean, Roosevelt University), Rob Birman (CEO, Louisville Symphony), Larry Tamburri (President, Pittsburgh Symphony), Susan Feder (Mellon Foundation), Wayne Brown (NEA), and others.
To register for the conference and participate as an audience member, please e-mail orchestrasummit@umich.edu or visit http:sitemaker.umich.eduorchestrasummit.There is a $25 registration fee for non-students.

More than a conductor and more than a composer, he defines the intellectual epicenter of 20th-century music. U-M Professor Emeritus of Musicology Glenn Watkins and Maestro Boulez will discuss the past, present, and future of orchestras, live performance, artistic choices, and contemporary composition.

The Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary season. The Company was founded after 11 years of collaboration during which Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane (1948-1988) redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form, and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. It emerged onto the international scene in 1983 with the world premiere of Intuitive Momentum at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, which featured legendary drummer Max Roach. Since then, the 10-member Company has performed worldwide in over 200 cities in 30 countries including Australia, Brazil, Canada, the Czech Republic, Germany, France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, and the UK. Today, the Harlem-based Company is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the modern dance world.
The Company has distinguished itself through its teaching and performing at various universities, festivals, and under the aegis of government agencies such as the US Information Agency
(in Eastern Europe, Asia, and South East Asia). Audiences of approximately 50,000 to 100,000 annually see the Company across the country and around the world.
The work of the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company freely explores both musically driven works and works using a wide variety of texts (such as Reading, Mercy and the Artificial Nigger based on Flannery O'Connor's 1955 short story The Artificial Nigger). The repertoire is widely varied in its subject matter, visual imagery, and stylistic approach to movement, voice, and stagecraft. The Company has been acknowledged for its intensely collaborative method of creation that has included artists as diverse as Keith Haring, The Orion String Quartet, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Cassandra Wilson, fado singer Misia, jazz pianist Fred Hersch, Ross Bleckner, Jenny Holzer, Robert Longo, Julius Hemphill, and Peteris Vasks. The collaborations of the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company with visual artists were the subject of Art Performs Life (1998), a groundbreaking exhibition at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.

Bill T. Jones {Artistic DirectorCo-Founder Choreographer), a multi-talented artist, choreographer, dancer, theater director, and writer, has received such major awards including a 1994 MacArthur "Genius" Award and a 2007 Tony Award. His work in dance has been recognized with the 2003 Dorothy and Lillian Gish
Prize, the 2005 Wexner Prize, the 2005 Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival Award for Lifetime Achievement, and the 1993 Dance Magazine Award. His venture into off-Broadway theater (77ie Seven) resulted in a 2006 Lucille Lortel Award and his choreography for the Broadway show Spring Awakening was acknowledged with a 2007 Tony Award as well as an Obie Award for the show's 2006 off-Broadway run.
Before forming the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company in 1982, Mr. Jones choreographed and performed nationally and internationally as a soloist and duet company with his late partner, Arnie Zane. In addition to creating more than 140 works for his own company, Mr. Jones has received many commissions to create dances for modern and ballet companies. In 1995, Mr. Jones directed and performed in a collaborative work with Toni Morrison and Max Roach, Degga, at Alice Tully Hall, commissioned by Lincoln Center's Serious Fun Festival. His collaboration with Jessye Norman, How! Do! We! Do! premiered at New York's City Center in 1999.
Mr. Jones has received honorary doctorates from Yale University, Art Institute of Chicago, Bard College, Columbia College, Skidmore College, The Juilliard School, Swarthmore College, and the State University of New York at Binghamton Distinguished Alumni Award, where he began his dance training with studies in classical ballet and modern dance.
Mr. Jones's memoirs. Last Night on Earth, were published by Pantheon Books in 1995. An in-depth look at the work of Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane can be found in Body Against Body: The Dance and Other Collaborations of Bill T. Jones andArnieZane, published in 1989 by Station Hill Press. Hyperion Books published Dance, a children's book written by Bill T. Jones and photographer Susan Kuklin, in 1998. Mr. Jones contributed to Continuous Replay: The Photography of Arnie Zane, published by MIT Press in 1999.
Mr. Jones created, directed, and choreographed Fela! A New Musical, based on the life of Fela Kuti, which played to sold-out houses off-Broadway in the summer of 2008 and which moved to Broadway in the fall of 2009. Most recently, Mr. Jones was one of 22 prominent black Americans featured in Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Elvis Mitchell's HBO documentary The Black List, which premiered at the Sundance Festival in January 2008 and was broadcast nationally in the fall of 2008.
Arnie Zane (Co-Founder, 1948-1988) was a native New Yorker born in the Bronx and educated at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton. In 1971, Mr. Zane and Mr. Jones began their long collaboration in choreography and in 1973 formed the American Dance Asylum in Binghamton with Lois Welk. Mr. Zane's first recognition in the arts came as a photographer when he received a Creative Artists Public Service (CAPS) Fellowship in 1973. Mr. Zane was the recipient of a second CAPS Fellowship in 1981 for choreography, as well as two Choreographic Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts (1983 and 1984). In 1980, Mr. Zane was co-recipient, with Bill T. Jones, of the German Critics Award for his work Blauvelt Mountain. Rotary Action, a duet with Mr. Jones, was filmed for television, co-produced by WGBH-TV Boston and Channel 4 in London.

Le tombeau de Couperin (1919)
Maurice Ravel
Born March 7, 1875, in Ciboure,
Basses-Pyrenees, France Died December 28, 1937, in Paris
Considered too small and delicate for military service, Maurice Ravel realized that he could serve his country by writing music. But when his brother Edouard enlisted at the start of World War I, Ravel didn't want to sit on the sidelines. At the age of 39, he managed to get accepted as a nurse's aide, leaving behind a number of unfinished scores and his 74-year-old mother. Music was still on his mind, however. In October 1914, his first month on the job, he wrote to his former pupil, Roland-Manuel, about two new piano pieces he was planning, including a French suite--"No, it isn't what you think: la Marseillaise will not be in it, but it will have a forlane and a gigue; no tango, however." That was the beginning of Le tombeau de Couperin.
In March 1915, Ravel became a truck driver for the 13th Artillery Regiment. (He named the truck Adelaide and signed his letters Chauffeur Ravel.) It was a dangerous, exhausting, and stressful assignment, and his health suffered. At least for a while, music took a back seat to the more pressing concerns of life and death. Early in 1917, his mother died; it was a terrible blow, which contributed even further to his physical and mental decline, and he was discharged from the army a few months later. While recuperating at his godmother's country house, Ravel returned to writing music, beginning with the French suite for piano.
Ravel had been tempered by his first-hand experience of war. A frothy symphonic poem, Wen, which he abandoned during the war, now became the bitter La valse. And the benign piano suite he had long envisioned, perhaps as a genial bit of nationalism, now carried the horrible weight of tragedy: each movement was dedicated to a friend who had died at the front. Back in familiar surroundings, but still haunted by memories of the war, Ravel completed the suite he now called Le tombeau de Couperin. What had begun as a homage to a golden era of French music--the age of Francois Couperin and the 18th century in general--now paid gentle tribute to the victims of World War I. Ravel designed his own title page for the score, which included a draped funerary urn. The piano suite contained six movements; as the composer promised, there was no hint of the Marseillaise.
Before the war, Ravel's own orchestrations of his piano pieces Mother Goose and the Valses nobles et sentimentales were wildly popular. In 1919, after the first performance of Le tombeau de Couperin, he began to orchestrate four of the six movements. As Roland-Manuel wrote, "This metamorphosis of piano pieces into symphonic works was a game for Ravel, a game played to perfection, so that the transcription outdid the charm of the original." Le tombeau de Couperin is arguably Ravel's greatest success in the sport. The translation from piano to full orchestra is handled with an almost impossible finesse; Ravel carefully weighed every choice of instrument, showing impeccable concern for color, in all its subtle modulations, as well as for clarity and balance. The orchestration is a work of both enormous care and extreme economy.
Le tombeau de Couperin is the most gentle of war memorials--it's about memory, not combat. It has neither the morbid sadness of Richard Strauss's Metamorphosen nor the anger of Dmitri Shostakovich's grand wartime symphonies. It evokes those it honors, not the tragic circumstances of their deaths. Ravel borrows the forms of the baroque dance suite, beginning with a prelude that sets the presiding graceful tone. (The piano version includes a fugue and a toccata that Ravel chose not to orchestrate.) The second movement is a forlane, a Northern Italian dance; before composing a note of his own, Ravel transcribed a forlane by Couperin as a way of getting to know the style. Ravel's "Menuet" (like the "Prelude") gives the oboe a prominent role. The "Rigaudon" that concludes Ravel's suite is an old dance from Provence that was sometimes used by Rameau and Bach, and much later by Grieg in his Holberg Suite, Op. 40, though seldom with such brilliance and panache.
Flute Concerto (2006)
Marc-Andre Dalbavie
Born February 10, 7967, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France
Marc-Andre Dalbavie regularly retreats to a 15th-century farmhouse in the French countryside to compose. "I'm completely alone," he said recently. "Every door is shut and the windows shut also, and I really work every day in this atelier in a sort of isolation ward." Nevertheless, Dalbavie is very much a composer of our time, and his music is a reflection of life in today's complex world. This
recent Flute Concerto, like his Piano Concerto, which the Chicago Symphony played four years ago, is a prime example of Dalbavie's unique brand of modernism, steeped in the concerns that have preoccupied composers for centuries yet expressed in a language that would have been unrecognizable only a few years ago.
Dalbavie's training is defined by avant-garde big names and cutting-edge trends. His composer's voice was initially influenced by "spectralism"--a compositional style of the 1970s and 1980s that is based on a rigorous, computer-derived exploration of timbre (the color of sound)--and then at the technology-based world of IRCAM, the music research temple in Paris launched by Pierre Boulez. He also worked with John Cage and Merce Cunningham in London in 1980, with Italian pioneer Franco Donatoni in Sienna four years later, and he studied orchestral conducting with Boulez in the late 1980s.
Beginning with his earliest works, Dalbavie became known for writing music that explores color and texture. His scores are often characterized by a complex layering of foreground and background, like several stories all unfolding simultaneously. (He once compared the technique not to Proust, who moves back and forth between past and present, but to the American soap opera Dallas, which had obviously infiltrated French television at the time.) He also is fascinated by sound and acoustics-and in the way music relates to the performance space. His first concerto, for violin, composed in 1996--Dalbavie's first composition without electronics--planted individual members of the orchestra within the audience. "The idea," he said at the time, "was to take a very conventional form and put it into space, destabilize the form." Concertate il suono (which was commissioned by the Chicago Symphony and the Cleveland Orchestra to honor Boulez's 75th birthday) carried the idea further, placing chamber groups of instruments throughout the concert hall. Dalbavie has compared the idea to seeing Mantegna's celebrated fresco Camera degli Sposi (The bridal chamber) in Mantua, which covers not only the walls, but the ceiling as well: "You're in the painting," he has said.
But beginning with Color in 2002, Dalbavie moved away from composing these spatial works to concentrate on pieces that investigate sonority and texture from the confines of the conventional orchestral stage and to refine his ideas of musical "development." In Dalbavie's recent scores.
including the Piano Concerto performed in Chicago in 2006 (with Leif Ove Andsnes, its dedicatee, as the soloist), the music is in a constant state of transformation--of one sound or one idea evolving into another.
Dalbavie's standard composing method-literally behind closed doors--is very much his own. "I have the piece finished before I write," he told The New York Times a few years ago:
Of course, the detail changes as I work. But I am the contrary of Boulez in that, because he starts with a little motif and sees what he can make of it, and the motif grows, like a plant. With me the piece arrives like a block, after a certain time. I'm a little like the Japanese painter who would spend months waiting and then do a picture in three seconds. Of course, in music three seconds is not possible. You have months of work to do. But still, I don't discover the piece progressively. Suddenly it's there.
While writing his Piano Concerto five years ago--composed after extensive study of the most famous piano concertos of the past--Dalbavie formed strong ideas about the relationship between the solo instrument and the orchestra. In the end, it was the traditional "classical confrontation," as he put it, that he chose to avoid. The Flute Concerto is a further exploration of the idea that the two do not so much face off or argue, as in many of the most dramatic concertos in the repertory, but coexist in an ever-changing world. The flute and orchestra begin and end playing together, and in between there is constant interaction.
Dalbavie's fascination with color still runs deep throughout this work, reflecting his earlier stance as a "specialist" (he told The New York Times that "specialist" composers work like Monet, who broke down colors into components. "We de-compose sound and then redeploy it," he said). The Flute Concerto, like much of Dalbavie's more recent work, also shows an occasional unexpected affinity with certain elements of so-called minimalism--the gradually shifting patterns, the sense of stasis. And, after years of focusing on color and harmony, Dalbavie has begun to turn his attention to melody--"I started with vertical music and I have moved progressively towards horizontal music," is how he has put it. (A new chamber work, Melodia, which Dalbavie has described as a "symbol of my evolution," was premiered in New York in December.)
Like his Piano Concerto, the Flute Concerto unfolds as one unbroken paragraph. The work is subtly indebted to tradition, from its echoes of the classical fast-slow-fast form, and its orchestra of almost Mozartean proportions to the nature of the solo flute part itself. Dalbavie has taken the cliches of virtuoso flute writing, from the vaulting arpeggios with which the concerto opens, and used them in unexpected ways. It's as if a new light--from a new century--has been cast over the flute music of the past, splintering its familiar gestures into an original sonic world. The entire work is characterized by clearly defined ideas and lucid textures combined with surprisingly complex colors. It is easy to follow, yet it resonates with provocative thoughts and sounds.
Over the years, Dalbavie has noticed that of all the people who talk to him after a performance, no two ever describe what they've heard in the same way. "I'm deeply convinced that art is the explosion of meaning," Dalbavie once said. "Each person finds his own meaning in music. I don't want the public to understand what I wanted to do for myself. If they find a different meaning I am happy."
Bluebeard's Castle (1911)
Bela Bart6k
Born March 25, 1881, in Nagyszentmiklos,
Hungary [now Sinnicolau Mare, Romania] Died September 26, 1945 in New York
Bluebeard first appears in the pages of Charles Perault's Mother Goose tales, in the company of Tom Thumb and Little Red Riding Hood. There was an actual Bluebeard, a 15th-century dandy named Gilles de Retz who dyed his beard blue, dressed in the best silks and jewels, and is said to have committed a number of crimes, although the cold-blooded murder of his six wives is not among them. Perault added that detail in his 1697 collection: Bluebeard's newest bride discovers the heads of her predecessors neatly hanging behind a closet door. In the 200 years between Perault and Bartok, this legend took many forms and eventually made its way to the world of opera; Gretry's Raoul Barbe-bleue, Offenbach's Barbe-bleue, and Dukas's setting of Maeterlinck's Ariane et Barbe-bleue were the most successful.
Dukas's version was only four years old in 1911 when Bela Bartok began to write his first and only opera, which is also based on the Bluebeard legend. Bartok took a text already prepared by his fellow countryman Bela Balazs for Zoltan Kodaly, who never used it. In Balazs's version, the drama is compressed into one act with only two characters. (The former wives, of which there are now only three, are mute; Balazs renames the newest bride Judith.)
The basic stages of the drama can be quickly summarized. The aging Bluebeard and his young bride Judith enter the dark, vast, circular hall of his castle. There are no windows, only seven massive doors. Judith vows that their love will bring sunlight and joy to the castle; Bluebeard says it can never be. She insists on knowing what is behind the seven locked doors. Finally, Bluebeard gives her the first key, and thus begins the terrifying series of discoveries that seals Judith's own fate. The first six doors produce:
1. A torture chamber, its walls weeping blood
2. An armory, the weapons of war all stained with blood
3. Great wealth and treasure, the jewels bathed in blood
4. A perfumed garden, its soil soaked with blood
5. A vast panorama of the countryside, with clouds casting a bloody shadow
6. Still waters, a great lake of tears
Bluebeard begs Judith to leave the last, seventh door unopened; fearing that she already knows the truth, she insists. The seventh door is unlocked, revealing Bluebeard's three previous wives. Bluebeard introduces the first, who came at dawn; the second, who came at midday; and the third, who came at twilight. Now Judith, who came in the night sown with stars, joins the others behind the seventh door. The door closes, and Bluebeard is left in darkness.
As Peter Bart6k, the composer's son, has written:
Bluebeard represents Man as a tragic figure: in fulfilling his nature, he must forego joy and satisfaction; he must suffer and make others suffer. Seeking truth, he is obliged to sacrifice
happiness. Judith is woman as the embodiment of love. She loves Bluebeard because he is the essential Man, the unhappy seeker of uncompromising and joyless truth. She wants to redeem him, to reconcile him with life, to make him accept happiness.
All three of Bart6k's stage works--the others are the ballets The Wooden Prince and The Miraculous Mandarin--focus on the relationship between man and woman. In Bluebeard's Castle, Bartok uses contrasting music to distinguish the two: pentatonic and folklike for Bluebeard; chromatic and romantic for Judith. These are the only singing roles, and the relationship between them is not defined by stock operatic gestures or forms; they sing to each other, but not together until the very end, and then only for a few measures. The symbolism is powerful: they cannot reach one another. The drama in Bluebeard's Castle is accomplished through music, not action. (As the bard who speaks the prologue suggests, the stage on which the work unfolds may well be one of the mind.)
The opera begins and ends in total darkness, with music based on a pentatonic scale (using only five notes) starting on F-sharp; but with the flood of light at the fifth door, Bartok unleashes a blinding flash of pure C Major. (Significantly, C is the note furthest from F-sharp.) That moment, capped by Judith's cry on a high C, comes at the very center of the piece and suggested to Bartok the arch form that became his favorite architectural plan. Bluebeard's Castle is a gradual crescendo from darkness to light and then back again.
The opening of the doors invites orchestral music that is richly descriptive of each discovery. The horrors of the torture chamber are illustrated in chilling sounds from the entire orchestra: there are shrieks from the piccolos and a nervous trilling throughout. Trumpet and horn fanfares introduce the armory. Glistening patterns from the celesta and harps accompany the discovery of the jewels. The garden behind the fourth door is depicted in a pastoral horn theme over a wash of quiet string music. The broad vistas of Bluebeard's kingdom are scanned in slow progressions of brilliant triads, ceremonial and spine-tingling in the sheer power of their sound. Arpeggios from the celesta, harps, and winds suggest the immense waters behind the sixth door.
At the seventh door, the drama is turned on its head. Judith has heard the rumors and believes the last door will reveal the bodies of Bluebeard's
murdered wives. But the women are not dead. As Peter Bartbk explains, "In Balazs's symbolic version, representing Bluebeard as the prototype of tragic and creative man, the central motif of the old folk tale, Bluebeard as the wicked wife-killer, is thoroughly sublimated." He concludes:
No woman, then, can give Bluebeard joy and happiness on her own terms, as Judith had wanted to. The women are forever enshrined, as figures of undying beauty, in the secret recesses of the castle of gloom, which in its turn symbolized man's soul. Bluebeard's women make his flowers bloom and his treasures grow; in other words, they are the source of the creative man's inspiration. But as living women, they cannot share his life. They exist only as idealized memories. Without being a wife-killer in the material sense, Bluebeard does kill his women on the "inner" stage. Tragic man can find no fulfillment in woman. This is the hidden "meaning" of the old tale.
Bluebeard's Castle is not often encountered in the opera house, partly because it must be paired with something else to make for a full evening and it is difficult to find an ideal companion, and partly because its true power does not depend on stage effects, but on an uncompromising delivery of the music. During the composer's lifetime, Bluebeard's Castle was rarely performed. As soon as the score was finished, Bart6k entered it in an important national competition; the prize, a staged production, was denied because the jurors thought the work unperformable. Bluebeard's Castle was not staged for another seven years. Shortly after the premiere in Budapest in May 1918, Bluebeard was banned throughout Hungary because its librettist, Balta, was now a political exile. A production was announced to celebrate the composer's 50th birthday in 1931, but it did not materialize. Eventually the opera was recognized as a work of singular power and brilliance, but the difficulties Bartok had endured getting Bluebeard's Castle produced soured him from writing for the stage ever again.
Program notes by Phillip Huscher, Program Annotator for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
In its second century, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO) holds an enviable position in the music world, with performances greeted by enthusiastic audiences both at home and abroad.
The CSO currently enjoys a unique leadership among international orchestras, with three of the world's most celebrated conductors at its helm. Eminent Dutch conductor Bernard Haitink became Principal Conductor in 2006 and will conclude his successful tenure at the end of the 0910 season. Renowned French composer and conductor Pierre Boulez--whose long-standing relationship with the CSO led to his appointment as Principal Guest Conductor in 1995--was named Helen Regenstein Conductor Emeritus in 2006. In May 2008, Riccardo Muti was appointed the CSO's 10th Music Director. Maestro Muti currently serves as Music Director Designate and will begin his tenure as Music Director in September 2010.
The CSO's self-produced weekly radio program hit the national airwaves in April 2007 and is now syndicated to more than 200 markets nationwide on the WFMT Radio Network. These broadcasts offer a new and distinctive approach to classical music radio, with lively and engaging content designed to provide deeper insight and offer further connection to the music performed in the CSO's concert season.
Recordings have been an important part of the CSO's activities. Since 1916, the CSO has amassed a discography numbering more than 900. Recordings by the CSO have earned 60 Grammy Awards from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences--more than any other orchestra in the world. CSO Resound, the Orchestra's in-house label for CD and digital download releases, was launched in May 2007. The CSO Resound recording of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 4 with Maestro Haitink, which includes a DVD Beyond the Score presentation, won the 2008 Grammy Award for "Best Orchestral Performance."
Appointed the CSO's Helen Regenstein Conductor Emeritus in 2006, composer-conductor Pierre Boulez is one of the most important musical and intellectual figures of our time. Maestro Boulez was named Principal Guest Conductor of the CSO in March 1995. This year, the music world celebrates his 85th birthday.
Pierre Boulez
Born in 1925 in Montbrison, France, Maestro Boulez studied piano, composition, and choral conducting at the Paris Conservatoire, where his teachers included Olivier Messiaen and Rene Leibowitz. In 1954, he founded the Concerts du Petit Marigny, one of the first concert series dedicated to modern music, which later became the Domaine Musical series. In the next decade, he was involved with musical analysis, and he taught in Darmstadt and at Basel University. In 1963, he was a visiting professor at Harvard University, and in 1976, he became a professor at the College de France.
Maestro Boulez began his conducting career in 1958 with the South West Radio Orchestra in Germany. In 1965, George Szell invited him to conduct in the US for the first time with the Cleveland Orchestra; he subsequently held posts there as Principal Guest Conductor and Musical Advisor from 1969-72. In 1971, he became Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra; that same year, he became Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, a position he held until 1977.
His difference of opinion about state intervention in the arts in France led Maestro Boulez into voluntary exile for several years. He returned to France in 1974, when the government invited him to create and direct a music research center at the Pompidou Centre. From the Institut de Recherche et de Coordination AcoustiqueMusique (IRCAM) sprang the creation of a major instrumental group, the Ensemble Intercontemporain. Maestro Boulez is also co-founder of Cite de la Musique, a music center in Paris created in 1995.

Maestro Boulez's numerous compositions are widely performed, including ie marteau sans maitre, Pli selon pli, Notations, Le visage nuptial, Repons, ...explosante-fixe..., and three piano sonatas. Maestro Boulez has published five books about music. His many awards and honors include honorary doctorates from Leeds, Cambridge, Basel, and Oxford universities; Commander of the British Empire; Knight of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany; and 26 Grammy Awards.
Mathieu Dufour (Flute) is principal flute of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, a position he has held since 1999. Before coming to Chicago, he was principal solo flute of the Paris National Opera Orchestra from 1996-99. Prior to his appointment there, he served as principal solo flute of the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse for three years.
Mr. Dufour began his flute studies at the age of eight with Madeleine Chassang at the National Regional Conservatory in his hometown of Paris, France. At the age of 14, he was awarded the school's gold medal by unanimous vote. He subsequently studied with Maxence Larrieu at the National
Mathieu Dufour Conservatory of Music
in Lyon, where he was unanimously awarded first prize in 1993. Additional awards include second prize at the Jean-Pierre Rampal International Flute Competition (1990); third prize at the International Flute Competition in Budapest (1991); and second prize at the International Flute Competition in Kobe, Japan (1997).
Mr. Dufour frequently appears as soloist in recitals and concerts around the world. He made his Carnegie Hall and Lucerne Festival debuts as soloist with the Chicago Symphony under Daniel Barenboim in 2002, and he has performed under conductors Pierre Boulez and Christoph Eschenbach. In demand as a coach and teacher, he has led master classes in Canada, Japan, Europe, and the US.
Michelle DeYoung {Mezzo-Soprano) has established herself as one of the most exciting artists of her generation. She is continually in demand throughout the world.
appearing regularly with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Vienna Philharmonic, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Orchestre
Michelle DeYoung & Paris Berliner Staats-
kapelle, and the Concertgebouworkest. In addition, she has performed at the Ravinia, Tanglewood, Saito Kinen, Edinburgh, and Lucerne festivals.
Equally at home on the opera stage, Ms. DeYoung has appeared with the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Los Angeles Opera, Houston Grand Opera, La Scala, Bayreuth Festival, Berliner Staatsoper, Paris Opera, and the Tokyo Opera.
Ms. DeYoung's most recent recording is Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Bernard Haitink (CSO Resound). She won a Grammy Award for her recordings of Kindertotenlieder and Mahler's Symphony No. 3 (San Francisco Symphony) and Les Troyens (LSO Live!).
This season, Ms. DeYoung's engagements include return appearances with the Los Angeles Opera for Achim Freyer's complete Ring Cycle (as Fricka, Waltraute, and Sieglinde) and the Berliner Staatsoper for Tristan und Isolde. She also appears at Carnegie Hall with the Orchestra of Saint Luke's and makes her debut at the Hollywood Bowl in a concert conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.
Falk Struckmann (Bass-Baritone) is one of the leading and most successful singers in his repertory. He has worked with numerous important directors and conductors, and he has been a guest artist at all of the major international opera houses, including the Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, and Vienna state operas; the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona; the Royal Opera, Covent Garden; La Scala in Milan; the Metropolitan Opera in New York; the Opera National de Paris; and at the Salzburg Festival.
A native of Heilbronn, Germany, Mr. Struckmann made his operatic debut in Kiel in 1985 and then went to Basle, where he soon was singing the major roles that comprise his repertory today. Mr. Struckmann's first guest contracts took him to several European opera houses, including
the Vienna State Opera in 1990 and the Berlin State Opera in 1992, where he has appeared regularly since his debuts. Mr. Struckmann came to international attention with his debut at the 1993 Bayreuth Festival as Kurwenal in a new production of Tristan and Isolde. He returned for further performances as Kurwenal as well as for Donner and Gunther in the new LevineKirchner production of The Ring of the Nibelung, and as Amfortas. In 2006, he sang WotanWanderer in the new production of The Ring.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo
Program
Sunday Afternoon, January 31, 2010 at 4:00 Hill Auditorium Ann Arbor
This afternoon's program will be announced by the artists from the stage and will be performed with one intermission.
34th Performance of the 131st Annual Season
UMS Global: Performing Arts of Africa
The photographing or sound and video recording of this performance or possession of any device for such recording is prohibited.
This afternoon's performance is sponsored by the University of Michigan Health System.
This afternoon's performance is hosted by Comerica Bank.
Funded in part by the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Media partnership for this performance is provided by WEMU 89.1 FM, Ann Arbor's 107one, WRCJ 90.9 FM, Mefro 77mes, Michigan Chronicle, and Berween the Lines.
Special thanks to Beth James, Kelly Askew, and Sandra Schulze from the U-M African Studies Center and the U-M Center for Afro and African American Studies Center and Daniel Herwitz from the Institute for the Humanities for their support of and participation in events surrounding this performance.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo appears by arrangement with International Music Network. Ladysmith Black Mambazo records for Heads Up International.
Large print programs are available upon request.
For more than 40 years, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has married the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their native South African musical traditions to the sounds and sentiments of Christian gospel music. The result is a musical and spiritual alchemy that has touched a worldwide audience representing every corner of the religious, cultural, and ethnic landscape. Their musical efforts over the past four decades have garnered praise and accolades within the recording industry, but also solidified their identity as a cultural force to be reckoned with.
Assembled in the early 1960s in South Africa by Joseph Shabalala--then a young farmboy turned factory worker--the group took the name Ladysmith Black Mambazo: "Ladysmith" being the name of Mr. Shabalala's rural hometown; "Black" being a reference to oxen, the strongest of all farm animals; and "Mambazo" being the Zulu word for axe, a symbol of the group's vocal ability to "chop down" all things in their path. Their collective voices were so tight and their harmonies so polished that they were eventually banned from competitions, although they were welcome to participate strictly as entertainers.
Mr. Shabalala says his conversion to Christian?ity in the 1960s helped define the group's musi?cal identity. The path that the axe was chopping suddenly had a direction: "To bring this gospel of loving one another all over the world," he says. However, he is quick to point out that the mes?sage is not specific to any one religious orienta?tion. "Without hearing the lyrics, this music gets into the blood, because it comes from the blood," he says. "It evokes enthusiasm and excitement, re?gardless of what you follow spiritually."
A radio broadcast in 1970 opened the door to their first record contract--the beginning of an ambitious discography that currently includes more than 40 recordings, garnering three Grammy Awards and 15 nominations, including one for their most recent recording llembe: Honoring Sha-ka Zulu. Their philosophy in the studio was--and continues to be--just as much about preservation of musical heritage as it is about entertainment. The group borrows heavily from a traditional mu?sic called isicathamiya (is-cot-a-ME-Ya), which de?veloped in the mines of South Africa, where black workers were taken by rail to work far away from their homes and their families. Poorly housed and paid worse, the mine workers would entertain themselves after a six-day week by singing songs
into the wee hours on Sunday morning. When the miners returned to the homelands, this musical tra?dition returned with them.
In the mid-1980s, Paul Simon visited South Af?rica and incorporated Ladysmith Black Mambazo's rich tenoraltobass harmonies into his Graceland album--a landmark 1986 recording that won the Grammy Award for "Best Album" and is consid?ered seminal in introducing world music to main?stream audiences.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo has been invited to perform at many special events including events for the Queen of England and the Royal Family, two Nobel Peace Prize Ceremonies, a concert for Pope John Paul II in Rome, and the South African Presidential inaugurations.
This afternoon's performance marks the UMS debut of Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

UMS EDUCATION AND AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
0910 Season: Breaking Down Walls
www.ums.orgeducation
UMS's Education Program deepens the relation?ship between audiences and art, while efforts in Audience Development raise awareness of the positive impact the performing arts and educa?tion can have on the quality of life in our com?munity. The program creates and presents the highest quality arts education and community engagement experiences to a broad spectrum of constituencies, proceeding in the spirit of part?nership and collaboration.
Both literally and figuratively, the 0910 UMS Education season celebrates the breaking down of walls: literally in the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and events surrounding the presentation of the Berlin Philharmonic; and figuratively, in the attempt to break down walls that impede personal and intellectual growth, participation in the arts, and connections to community. Each event chal?lenges participants to expand the way they think about art, culture, and creativity, and encourages a greater investment in UMS and the arts as a whole.
In this time of economic challenge, the UMS 0910 education programs "go deeper" with projects that encourage sustained engagement over time, allow a variety of entry points for a wide range of interests and audiences, and explore the diversity of artists, art forms, ideas, and cultures featured in the current UMS season.

ANNUAL FUND SUPPORT
July 1, 2008-November 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.

This list includes donors who made an annual gift to UMS between July 1, 2008 and November 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.
