elcome to this University Musical Society performance. Since 1879, UMS has been enriching the lives of the people of southeast Michigan, including our students, faculty, and staff, through presentations of the world's finest performers of music, theater, and dance.
One of the most significant undertakings in UMS history occurs this winter. For more than
two years, UMS has worked with producers to remount Einstein on the Beach on our campus. For most of January, the creators of this transfor?mative 1976 opera--com?poser Philip Glass, director Robert Wilson, and choreog?rapher Lucinda Childs--are here, along with singers, mu-
sicians, dancers, and crew, preparing the work for its international tour.
This residency provides a tremendous oppor?tunity for our students, faculty, and community to engage with these creative artists. Their stay will conclude with three preview performances at the Power Center January 20-22, representing the first North American presentation of the opera outside of New York City. As people are arriving from throughout the country for this special experience, I am excited we can welcome them to a University committed to celebrating innovators and game-changers in all fields, including the arts.
The Einstein residency launches Pure Michigan Renegade, a 10-week journey showcasing innova?tion and experimentation in dance, theater, and music. Pure Michigan Renegade concludes March 22-25 with American Mavericks, a four-day music festival and residency led by Michael Tilson Thomas with the San Francisco Symphony. It includes a roster of musical stars, including U-M alumna Jessye Norman, Emanuel Ax, Jeremy Denk, Meredith Monk, and the St. Lawrence String Quartet. Beyond Ann Arbor, American Mavericks takes place only in San Francisco, Chicago, and at New York's Carnegie Hall.
The UMS season ends on April 22 with the annual Ford Honors Program, where UMS and the University recognize world-renowned artists and ensembles that have had a long and deep relation?ship with us. This year we honor violinist Joshua Bell and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, each having appeared five times on our stages over several decades.
I encourage you to attend more UMS events and those offered by the many outstanding arts and cultural organizations of the University. To learn more, visit the University's arts portal, Montage, at

elcome! Thank you for attending this performance. I hope you'll enjoy the experience and attend other UMS events during the remainder of our 133rd season. You'll find a listing of all of our performances towards the center of this program book.
UMS has a rich history. It began in 1879 when four Ann Arbor church choirs joined forces under the direction of Calvin B. Cady to sing choruses from Handel's Messiah. They called the combined choruses the Choral Union. Their rehearsals led to the first Choral Union concert on Tuesday, December 16 of that year, held at the M.E. Church. Henry Simmons Frieze, a distinguished professor of classics and a three-time acting president of the University of Michigan, accompanied the Choral Union on the organ. A year later, the University Musical Society was officially incorporated with Professor Frieze as president.
The program of that first concert is now available online, along with every UMS program throughout our 133-year history. Also available are hundreds of photographs, most of them accom?panied by captions and dates. The programs and photos are available online thanks to our friends at the Ann Arbor District Library. The AADL ob?tained the documents from the University's Bent-ley Historical Library and digitized them, creating the website that now makes these UMS historical documents available to the public. Check it out at We are now in the process of digitizing the remainder of our archives, so stay tuned for a future announcement when more of our history will be accessible online.
UMS is the oldest performing arts pre?senter in the US affiliated with a university. We are proud of our rich history and pleased that we can share so much of it with you online. We also encourage you to visit our interactive web? "People are Talking" about UMS performances, educational programs, and other activities. Join the conver-
sation and let us hear from you. You'll also see videos of rehearsals, performances, artist interviews, and audience inter?views that we hope will enhance your experience with UMS.
We're planning a very special 1213 season as UMS will soon commemorate the 1OOth anniversary of Hill Au-
ditorium. Hill opened on May 14, 1913 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the UMS Choral Union under conductor Frederick Stock as part of the 20th Ann Arbor May Festival. Hill Auditorium is beloved by artists and ensembles everywhere, and we are working hard to plan a season of perfor?mances worthy of the hall's world-class reputation. Look for the season announcement this spring.
I hope you'll get in touch with me if you have any questions, comments, or problems related to UMS. If you don't see me in the lobby, send me an e-mail message at or call me at 734.647.1174. Thanks again for coming to this performance.
Very best wishes.
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
'm delighted to welcome you to this UMS per?formance in my role as Chair of the UMS Board of Directors. I am honored to serve UMS, one of the oldest arts presenting organizations in the country, now in its 133rd season. I serve along with the 34 elected and ex-officio members of the Board whose names appear on page 14 of this program book. Indeed, UMS has more than 7S0 volunteers, each providing critical services that contribute to UMS's excellence, including members of the Senate, Advisory Committee, UMS Choral Union, Usher Corps, Teacher Advisory Commit?tee, and our UMS National Council and Corporate Council.
The mission of UMS is "to inspire and en?rich communities by connecting audiences and artists in uncommon and engaging experiences." In pursuing this mission, we have developed a reputation far beyond southeastern Michigan. The scope of our presentations extends beyond music to include dance and theater. In the fall season we were entertained with Gate Theatre Dublin performing Beckett, the amazing artistry of Yuja Wang, mesmerizing movement by Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, and the sounds of A Night in Treme--something for every taste and interest. This winter, we will have the oppor?tunity to enjoy a range of performances by artists including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, as well as rare preview performances of Einstein on the Beach, and a multi-concert residency with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas. We also welcome you to help us conclude our season on Sunday, April
22, 2012 in Hill Auditorium for the Ford Honors Program, which will honor Joshua Bell and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Please open your mind and your soul to these and other simi?lar opportunities.
Speaking of heart-warming opportunities, UMS continues to be committed to creating op-
portunities for younger audi?ences to have cultural expe?riences. We provide heavily discounted tickets to students as well as arrange and sup?port special performances for students in K-12 programs. If you ever have the opportunity to attend a UMS youth per-
formance, please arrange to do so. The students express deep and inspiring impressions of a wider world for which they are most appreciative.
We are in the "experience" business. I thank you for attending this performance, and I invite you to attend more UMS performances this sea?son and to support UMS by making a gift. Your support will help UMS continue not only its out?standing presentations but also its award-winning educational programs for people of all ages. There are many ways to contribute to UMS. You'll find more information throughout this program book and on our website at

Dear Friends of the Performing Arts:
his year marks the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Power Center for the Performing Arts. Over the years, the Power Center has provided a flexible venue for music, dance and theater performances of all kinds. It has provided audiences with a comfortable, visually compelling, acoustically correct and technically sophisticated facility to experience performances at the highest level. We both remember how excited we were to experience the Royal Shakespeare Company's back-to-back performances of Henry VI and Richard III in March, 2001! Such compelling theater would not have been possible without the facilities of the Power Center.
This is exactly what Gene and Sadye Power, Phil's parents, had in mind when they gave the University of Michigan the funds to build the Power Center, which opened in 1971. The idea was to provide a building that could accommodate all varieties of the performing arts, something that was lacking in Ann Arbor at the time. The basic design was originally sketched on the back of an envelope by the renowned architect, Eero Saarinen, just before his death, and carried out by Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo.
Going all the way back to the Arts Theatre Club and the Dramatic Arts Center -mid 20th century efforts to bring theater-in-the-round to Ann Arbor -our family has been involved in supporting the performing arts of all kinds, especially the theater. Gene Power was one of the founders of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival. And Phil, as a Regent of the University of Michigan and a board member of the University Musical Society, helped launch the distinctive UMS international theater series and residency programs at the University.
Over the years -and in years to come -our family has welcomed opportuni?ties to help sustain the performing arts. In this, special mention must be made of the University Musical Society, one of the crown jewels of our community and of the broader world of the performing arts. It merits the financial support of all of us who cherish the value of artistic expression.
We believe strongly that we do not live by bread alone, and that the arts, culture and the humanities are essential parts of a high quality of life in a thriving community. The remounting of Einstein on the Beach and the residency attached to it are perfect examples of the bold experimentation and innovation the Power Center was intended to trigger.

Smoke-Free University
As of July 1, 2011, the smoking of tobacco is no longer permitted on the grounds of the Univer?sity, including the exteriors of U-M theaters and concert halls. Smoking is allowed on sidewalks adjacent to public roads.
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 may have several events occurring simultaneously in dif?ferent theaters. Please allow plenty of extra time to park and find your seats.
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 suit?able repertory break in the program (e.g., after the first entire piece, not after individual move?ments of classical works). There may be occa?sions where latecomers are not seated until intermission, as determined by the artist. UMS makes every effort to alert patrons in advance when we know that there will be no late seat?ing. Please be sure the Ticket Office has your e-mail address on file.
UMS works with artists to allow a flexible late-seating policy for family performances.

You can make it formal or ca?sual, a special celebration, or just friends enjoying each other's company. The many advantages to booking as a group include:

hrough a commitment to presenta?tion, education, and the creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) serves Michigan audi?ences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vig?orous and exciting live performing arts world. Over the past 133 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 commitment to dynamic and creative vi?sions of where the performing arts will take us in this new millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and conducted by Profes?sor 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 performed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
Many Choral Union members also be?longed to the University, and the University Mu?sical 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 sea?son. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in six different Ann Arbor venues.
The UMS Choral Union has likewise ex?panded its charge over its 133-year history. Re?cent 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 Mariinsky Orchestra (2006), Orff's Carmina Burana for Maestro Leonard Slatkin's inaugural weekend as Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2008), and Mahler's Symphony No. 2 ("Resurrection") with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas (2010).
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, cor?porate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.

Now that you're in your seat...
ne often hears an important discovery or a great work of art described as "epoch-making." In music, that adjective has rarely been more applicable than in the case of Beethoven, whose compositions energized an entire century with their tremendous emotional power. Both Schubert and Grieg, whose temperaments were predominantly lyrical, reveal themselves as Beethoven's descendants in their more robustly dramatic moments. Stravinsky, an equally "epoch-making" composer in the 20th century, rebelled against the German tradition epitomized by Beethoven. He did not wear his heart on his sleeve like his predecessors had done, but achieved artistic integrity and reached his listeners in an entirely different way. Hearing his amazing Petrushka transcription after three 19th-century sonatas, one will probably have only one question: how is it all possible
Sonata No. 14 in a minor, D. 784,
Op. posth. 143(1823) Franz Schubert Born January 31, 1797 in Himmelpfortgrund (then
a suburb of Vienna and now a part of that city),
Austria Died November 19, 1828 in Vienna
Snapshot of History... In 1823:
Beethoven completes his Missa Solemnis
Clement Clarke Moore writes "Twas the night before Christmas"
William Sturgeon invents the electromagnet
The French army invades Spain, ending three years of liberal rule
Alexander Pushkin begins work on Eugene Onegin
Of all the so-called "Viennese masters," only Schubert was actually born and raised in that city. Surprisingly, the composer of more than 600 art songs (or lieder) and 11 piano sonatas did not, for most of his creative life, own a piano. A great deal of Schubert's work was done at a writing table, to be later revised at borrowed pianos in the homes of various friends.
Schubert's music languished for most of the 19th century, due to the widespread belief that the sonata was to be found in the works of Beethoven, and Schubert's distinctive style was looked upon as an anomaly. The great master of lieder, it was believed, was incapable of handling extended pianistic composition. Although only a tiny fraction of Schubert's music was published during his lifetime, his solo and chamber music fills a comparatively large space in his instrumental writing. The history of the unpublished manuscripts
is extremely difficult to unravel; many gathered dust for decades on the shelves of his heirs and publishers, while others passed obscurely from one private collector to another until they came into the public domain.
It was not until 1928, in honor of the centenary of the composer's death, that Artur Schnabel wrote in New York's Musical Courier, "Schubert's piano sonatas rank with the greatest works of their kind; not even a juxtaposition of Beethoven's masterpieces can obscure their beauty or weaken their emotional power." This pronouncement by such an acclaimed pianist on works that had long been considered historical oddities led to a re-evaluation of Schubert, one of the most prolific composers of all time.
Composed in February, 1823, the Sonata in a minor, Op. 143 is the first of Schubert's mature sonatas, restrained and economical as compared to the great "Wanderer" Fantasy, and yet offering a complete break from the graceful, ornamental style of his earlier sonatas. Schubert's piano writing is often reminiscent of his orchestral thinking and such is the case in the first movement. Here there is a stark contrast--the austere opening theme is offset by the second subject which struck musicologist Alfred Einstein as "visions of paradise." The middle movement is not devoid of orchestral thinking either: the exquisite melody is constantly interrupted by string-like rumbling. A running figure between the hands starts off the final "Allegro vivace" in what could almost be "perpetual-motion" style. This alternates with yet another of Schubert's seemingly inexhaustible melodies until the initial figure is transformed to octaves, bringing the Sonata to an abrupt and fierce conclusion.

Sonata No. 23 in f minor, Op. 57
("Appassionata") (1804) Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 15 or 16, 1770 in Bonn, Germany Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Snapshot of History... In 1804:
Napoleon Bonaparte is proclaimed Emperor of France
Friedrich Schiller's play William Tell is first performed

German philosopher Immanuel Kant dies in Konigsberg at the age of 79
For years Beethoven considered the Sonata in f minor, written 1804-5, to be his greatest sonata. Like the "Eroica" Symphony of the same period, this work reflects a suggestion of heroism; so do his "Waldstein" Sonata and the String Quartets of Op. 59. The subtitle "Appassionata" was added after Beethoven's death, and inappropriately, according to some. Carl Czerny suggested the title would be better applied to the Sonata in E-flat Major, Op. 7, "which he composed in a very impassioned mood." According to Schindler, Beethoven wrote the Op. 57 Sonata straight through during a stay with his friend Count Brunswick, to whom the work is dedicated. Asked to explain the meaning of his "Appassionata" Sonata, Beethoven responded, "Read Shakespeare's Tempest."
The first "Allegro" has a subject based on the arpeggio of f minor. The alternate loud and soft chords convey a feeling of passion and yearning. The second subject, in a major key, is heard in octaves above a rolling accompaniment. Its momentary calm and rest is disturbed by the agitated episodes which follow in the minor key. Throughout the strenuous exposition and development the despairing note is constantly sounded, and the long Coda, although brilliant, maintains the same idea down to a pianissimo close.
In contrast to all this storm and stress is the set of variations which form the second movement. The simple theme upon which it is built is a series of chords in low register. It is as though Beethoven had felt the need of something idyllically restful as
a contrast to the first movement. The variations are succeeded by a restatement of the theme. Then without a break comes the impetuous Finale. A passionate, tumultuous torrent of notes tosses and sparkles from beginning to end. Then follows the Coda, a presto of similar character working up to a climax of force and power.

Sonata in e minor. Op. 7 (1865) Edvard Grieg
Born June 15, 1843 in Bergen, Norway Died September 5, 1907 in Bergen
Snapshot of History... In 1865:
Schubert's "Unfinished" Symphony is first performed, 37 years after the composer's death
Abraham Lincoln is assassinated
Mark Twain achieves his first great success with The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County
Wagner's Tristan und Isolde is first performed
Lewis Carroll publishes Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
With a burst of creative activity, Edvard Grieg pro?duced a series of works during the spring and sum?mer of 1865, when he and companion Benjamin Feddersen rented three furnished rooms at an inn at Rungsted on the coast north of Copenhagen. They made tea with an old samovar which Grieg also used for warming his fingers at the piano on the chilly spring mornings. He composed with such concentration that even the noise from the adja?cent billiard room failed to disturb him--a remark?able exception to his usual edginess when at work. During this period, he composed the Sonata in e minor, Op. 7, further developing the new, terse manner of the Humoresker, Op. 6. The Sonata was published in Leipzig in 1866. In an interview for an English journal in 1894, Grieg commented on the piece:
Whether it was the bewitching surroundings or the bracing air which inspired me, I cannot say. Suffice it that within 11 days I had com?posed my piano sonata and soon after that, my first violin sonata. I took them both to N. W. Gade, (the Danish composer, to whom the sonata is dedicated). He looked through them favorably, nodded, patted me on the shoulder
and said, 'That is very fine. Now we shall inspect it more closely.'
This was Grieg's first extant essay in sonata form and generally remains his most successful. It has compactness and directness that are absent from the later string sonatas and is celebrated for its distinguished writing for the piano, technically demanding but sidestepping obvious virtuosity.
The first movement begins with a descending four-measure motif spanning nearly an octave-and-a-half and ending on the tritone 'A-sharp.' The brief subsidiary theme in G Major that follows modulates with chromatic lines, serving as an epi?logue. The concise development opens with the principal theme's four-measure theme in E Major and uses some lively modulations before the prin?cipal key is reaffirmed at the end. The movement concludes with a short con fuoco coda.
The "Andante molto" in C Major is, to some extent, marked by modality and may be linked with folk music. Its short contrasting sections contain striking melodic and harmonic material. The most important, unified, and concentrated movement of the sonata is the third, marked "Alia Mennueto ma poco piu lento," with closely profiled thematic material beginning in e minor. This proceeds to a noble, inspired central section in E Major. The "Finale," with a Molto allegro tempo is in sonata form and has a stronger sense of unevenness than the preceding "Alia Mennueto." The concentrated coda brings the movement--and with it the sonata--to a fresh conclusion.

Three Movements from Petrushka (1921)
Igor Stravinsky
Born June 17, 1882 in Oranienbaum, near
St. Petersburg, Russia Died April 6, 1971 in New York
Snapshot of History... In 1921

Millions of people die in the Great Russian famine
Picasso paints his cubist masterwork Three Musicians
Stravinsky composed his second ballet, Petrushka, in 1910; it received its premiere performance on June 13, 1911, when it was staged at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris by Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. Ten years after the immense success of Petrushka, the composer was asked by Artur Rubinstein to transcribe the music for piano, and he readily complied. The task was likely a simple one for Stravinsky. After all, the score had originally been conceived as a Konzertstuck for Piano and Orchestra, in which the piano would take the part of "a puppet suddenly endowed with life, exasperating the orchestra with diabolical cascades of arpeggios." It was Diaghilev who saw the dramatic possibilities of the score, and convinced Stravinsky to alter the work and to turn it into a ballet.
Petrushka is the Russian equivalent of Punch, the familiar figure at carnivals, and it is during carnival time in St. Petersburg that the action of the ballet develops. The growing, gathering crowd at the Shrovetide Fair watches a puppet show which presents the three central characters of the ballet: Petrushka, the Ballerina, and the Moor. At the end of the first scene, the three execute the wild "Russian Dance"; the music fits perfectly with the brilliant, jerky movements of the marionettes.
The scene shifts to Petrushka's room, where he is found engulfed by despair; he has fallen in love with the seductive Ballerina. Realizing his own grotesque countenance, the clown entertains little hope that his ardor will be returned. The Ballerina enters the scene and at first is amused, allowing Petrushka's advances; but when the brawny, richly dressed Moor appears, it is evident where the fickle beauty's real interest lies. At the end of this scene, "Petrushka's Room," our hero is humiliated by the Moor, who kicks him out.
One of the most brilliant tone pictures ever painted by Stravinsky (both in the original orchestration and in the present piano realization) is the carnival scene, "The Shrovetide Fair; Mardi Gras," in which the fair (and the ballet) reaches its climax. It requires little effort of the imagination to see the surging crowds, the gay (if heavy-footed) peasants in brightly colored shawls, and the scurrying children--every detail of an old-fashioned street fair. In the midst of this rejoicing, the rivalry between Petrushka and the Moor takes a tragic turn. The puppets escape the show and the Moor kills Petrushka with a single blow of his saber.

The Recorder: Birth and Renaissance of an Instrument
he recorder, which first appeared in 13th-century Europe in the days of troubadours and minstrels, entered its golden age in the Renaissance. It was not only a mainstay of court musicians in the 15th and 16th centuries, but popular among aristocratic amateurs as well, including Henry VIII of England. Joining together in consorts, recorder players would perform dance music and works borrowed from the choral repertoire, such as polyphonic songs. The instrument also came into its own as a solo instrument, as evidenced by the growing repertoire of virtuosic "diminutions" (variations) on popular songs.
But the recorder's round, extremely soft timbre was ill-suited to the new Baroque concertante style that emerged in the 17th and 18th centuries. To adapt the instrument to changing tastes, it underwent a makeover of sorts in Italy, as well as in the Parisian workshops of the famed Hotteterre family. The recorder, which had been crafted in one piece since the Middle Ages, would henceforth be built in three sections, with tenon joints to facilitate tuning. The bore was also reconfigured to produce a clearer, somewhat louder sound, allowing it to serve as a solo instrument in an ensemble setting.
Attesting to the success of these adaptations, Monteverdi, Lully, Purcell, Bach, and Handel incorporated twin recorders alongside other woodwinds in a wide range of orchestral works for the theater and church. Bach, for example, wrote recorder parts for 19 of his cantatas, as well as his St. Matthew Passion, while Handel wrote twin recorders into no less than 90 of his arias. Orchestras of the day often featured both recorders and their future rival, the flute. They were used to evoke shepherds, supernatural scenes, sleep, death, birds--even bubbling brooks.
The period of 1690 to 1750 was the recorder's undisputed heyday, both as a solo and orchestral instrument. The late Baroque era gave birth not only to chamber works--sonatas and trio sonatas--but to recorder concertos and concerti grossi that showcased the instrument. Composers who wrote prominently for the recorder include Bach, Handel, Sammartini, Alessandro Scarlatti, Telemann, Veracini, and Vivaldi. Bach, who left no known solo pieces for recorder, nonetheless gave us a number of truly memorable passages for the instrument in two of his concerti grossi, the Brandenberg Concertos, Nos. 2 and 4.
Concerto Grosso in B-flat Major,
("Hornpipe"), Op. 6, No. 7, HWV 325
George Frideric Handel Born February 23, 1685 in Halle, Germany Died April 14, 1759 in London
In England, Italian instrumental music enjoyed con?siderable popularity beginning around 1710, both in concert performance and among amateur musi?cians. The eclectic and rather conservative English preferred the concerti grossi of Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) to the more modern concertos of the Venetian Vivaldi (1678-1741). Indeed, Francesco Geminiani (1687-1762), a composer and Corelli disciple, led a brilliant career in London, faithfully perpetuating the style made famous by his Roman inspiration. London publisher John Walsh, who released two collections of Geminiani's concerti grossi in 1732, is said to have pressed Handel to capitalize Corelli's accomplishments. Handel, who had met Corelli during a stay in Rome, published an initial set of six concerti grossi, Op. 3, with Walsh in 1734. In 1740, his 12 Op. 6 concertos were released. Today, this second set is considered one of the finest examples of the concerto grosso form, alongside the works of Corelli and Bach's cel?ebrated Brandenberg Concertos. Op. 6 is charac?terized by a remarkable synergy between Handel's intensely personal style and the spirit of Corelli.
Suite in a minor for Treble Recorder, Strings, and Basso Continuo, TWV 55: a2
Georg Philipp Telemann
Born March 14, 1681 in Magdeburg, Germany
Died June 25, 1767 in Hamburg
After falling into relative obscurity for a century-and-a-half, Telemann's music enjoyed a major resurgence in Germany in the 1930s. One of the first works to resurface during this period was his Suite in a minor for Recorder and Strings, which gained immense popularity in the 1960s. Half of the movements in the suite have parts written for two recorders. In this work, courtly French dance stylings combine with Italian-inspired melodies and, as is often the case with Telemann, a smattering of Polish folk touches.
Concerto in F Major for Soprano Recorder, Strings, and Basso Continuo
Giuseppe Sammartini
Born January 6, 1693 in Milan, Italy
Died November 1751 in London
The recorder was much in vogue in London from 1715 until around 1735. Concertos by English composers such as William Babel, John Baston, and Robert Woodcock were popular not only in concert halls but in theaters as well, where they were performed as musical interludes between acts. Milanese composer Giuseppe Sammartini helped fuel the city's love affair with the recorder. Sammartini arrived in England in 1728 or 1729, preceded by his reputation as a recorder virtuoso. There he presented London audiences with this Concerto in F Major, a work infused with Vivaldi influences and gallant character.
Concerto Grosso No. 12 in d minor,
"La Follia" (after Corelli) Francesco Geminiani
Born December 5, 1687 in Lucca (baptized), Italy Died September 17, 1762 in Dublin
After studying in Rome with Arcangelo Corelli (1753-1713) and Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725), Francesco Geminiani worked for several years as a violinist and composer in his native town of Lucca, as well as in Parma. Like many Italians before him, he traveled to England, where Italian music had achieved immense popularity. Both Geminiani's talent and reputation as a disciple of the famed Corelli allowed for a stellar career as a solo violinist and composer. In 1731, he founded a subscription concert society that both his own concerti grossi and the transcriptions of works by Corelli were performed. Geminiani had quickly realized that the English, with their love of Italian composers, were infatuated with the Roman master. The Concerto Grosso No. 12 in d minor is a chamber orchestra transcription of the last of Corelli's Op. 5 violin sonatas--a series of variations on "La Follia," an immensely popular melody in the Baroque era.
Recorder Concerto in F Major (after Corelli, Op. 5), with ornamentation by eminent masters
It was not unusual in 18th-century London for recorder virtuosos to perform works from the popular string repertoire on their instrument, adapting them as necessary. As a connoisseur of England's Baroque music scene, Maurice Steger pays homage to this tradition this evening. Joining with the string ensemble for a concerto grosso, he will perform the concertante part normally played by the solo violin. The concerto grosso in question is a Francesco Geminiani orchestration of a Corelli sonata.
Program notes by Pierre Grondines.
ccording to The Independent, Maurice Steger is "the world's leading recorder virtuoso." With a repertoire focused on early music, Mr. Steger is a sought-after soloist amongst leading early music period instrument ensembles.
A major portion of Mr. Steger's artistic activities is devoted to recitals accompanied by harpsichord or small chamber orchestras. But Maurice Steger is no stranger to contemporary music: he premiered two solo concertos for recorder and orchestra and has performed Rodolphe Schacher's musical fairytale Tino Flautino over 50 times.

ums University Musical Society
After studying with Marcus Creed in Stuttgart and upon the encouragement of Reinhard Goebel, Maurice Steger has also been conducting for a number of years. In his position as the Baroque Music Director at the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, he has developed and conducted concerts from the Baroque and Classical periods.
Among his many CD releases, the Telemann flute quartets (Deutsche GrammophonArchiv), sonatas by Sammartini, Telemann's suites and con?certo for recorder (harmonia mundi), as well as Vivaldi's concertos for recorder are particularly no?table. Several recordings, among them the album Venezia 1625 and Mr. Corelli in London (harmo?nia mundi), have received important international awards and-acclaim.
ecognized internationally for his expertise in 17thand 18th-century repertoire, Bernard Labadie is the founder of Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Quebec. For over 27 years, he has led each ensemble during the regular season in Quebec City and Montreal, on tour through North America and Europe, and on over 15 recordings for the Virgin Classics, Dorian, and ATMA labels.
Highly sought after as a guest conductor, Bernard Labadie regularly appears with some of North America's most prestigious orchestras in cities such as Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Cleveland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Houston, and Toronto. In 2009, he made his Metropolitan Opera debut with Mozart's The Magic Flute.
In Europe, he has taken to the podium with Amsterdam's Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony, and the Radio-France Philharmonic Orchestra, and conducted at the Liceu in Barcelona. He is also a regular guest with
the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.
Period instrument orchestras are also calling upon Bernard Labadie with increasing frequency. He will be a frequent guest with the Academy of Ancient Music in coming seasons, and has been hailed for his appearances with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The English Concert, and Collegium Vocale Gent.
As a leading ambassador for music in his native city of Quebec, Mr. Labadie was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2005 and a knight of Ordre national du Quebec in 2006. In 2008, he received the Banff Centre's National Arts Award for his contribution to the development of the arts in Canada, as well as an honorary doctorate from Laval University.
es Violons du Roy borrows its name from the renowned string orchestra of the court of the French kings. The group, comprised of 15 core members, was assembled in 1984 by music director Bernard Labadie and specializes in the vast repertoire of music for chamber orchestra. Although the ensemble plays on modern instruments, its approach to the works of the Baroque and Classical periods has been strongly influenced by current research into performance practice in the 17th and early-18th centuries; in this repertoire Les Violons du Roy uses replicates of period bows. The orchestra has been widely acclaimed for its exceptional energy, brilliance, and vitality. In recent seasons, under the leadership of first guest conductor Jean-Marie Zeitouni, the orchestra has begun a more in-depth exploration of 19thand 20th-century repertoire.
Les Violons du Roy has resided at the Palais Montcalm, the heart of the music scene in Quebec City, since 2007. The orchestra is renowned throughout Canada thanks to numerous concerts and recordings broadcast by Societe Radio-Canada and CBC, and its regular presence at music festivals. Les Violons du Roy first performed in Europe in 1988 and has since given dozens of concerts in France, Germany, England, Spain, and the Netherlands with internationally renowned soloists including Magdalena Kozena, David Daniels, and Vivica Genaux. The orchestra has twice been asked to perform at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. It again toured Europe in November 2011 with pianist Alexandre Tharaud.
Bernard Labadie
Since its first performance in Washington in 1995, Les Violons du Roy has extended its performance network in the US, making regular stops in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, and is now represented by the Opus 3 Artists agency. A recent highlight includes a US tour to both Carnegie Hall in New York and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, where the orchestra performed Handel's Messiah and Bach's Christmas Oratorio with La Chapelle de Quebec and an outstanding array of soloists (Rosemary Joshua, David Daniels, Jan Kobow, Andrew Foster-Williams, and Joshua Hopkins).
Les Violons du Roy's 22 recordings have earned acclaim, distinctions, and awards at national and international levels. Two of the 12 recordings re?leased by Dorian (Handel's Apollo e Dafne and Mo?zart's Requiem) have earned Juno Awards. The as?sociation with Quebec label ATMA has given way to six CDs since 2004, including: Water Music, the 2008 Felix Award-winning album recorded in the Raoul-Jobin Hall; Piazzolla, conducted by Jean-Ma?rie Zeitouni and winner of a Juno Award in 2006; and 2010's Britten, Les Illuminations with soprano Karina Gauvin. The group's first collaboration with the multinational Virgin Classics label led to the fall 2006 release of a compilation of cantata arias by Handel and Hasse with US mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux. Two other Virgin Classics releases in 2011 feature C.P.E. Bach's cello concertos with the Nor?wegian cellist Truls Mork and J.S. Bach's keyboard concertos with the French pianist Alexandre Tharaud. The most recent recording, presenting arias by Mozart, Haydn, Gluck, and Graun with the contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux, was produced for the Naive label. Les Violons du Roy is a proud member of Orchestras Canada, the national asso?ciation representing Canada's orchestras.

Arias from Le nozze di Figaro, K. 492 (1786) and Cosi fan tutte, K. 588 (1790)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart,
Arr. by an anonymous author from the late-18th century (Figaro) and Rainer Schottstadt (Cosi)
Born January 27, 1756 in Salzburg, Austria
Died December 5, 1791 in Vienna
There is no better indication of the early popularity of Mozart's operas than the number of arrangements made of them during the composer's lifetime and after. Mozart himself acknowledged this practice when, in the Act II finale of Don Giovanni, he playfully inserted a quote of "Non piu andrai" from Le nozze di Figaro in such a popularized version. In instrumental arrangements, the operatic melodies reached a wide audience far beyond the opera-going public, and gave both players and listeners a great deal of pleasure whenever this music was played.
Tonight's operatic selections include one relative rarity: "Al desio di chi t'adora" (K. 577), which is not normally performed at the opera today. This aria, scored by Mozart with two solo basset horns, was composed for a 1789 revival of Figaro. It is a more brilliant showpiece replacing Susanna's mysteriously intimate Act IV aria, "Deh vieni, non tardar." The other two selections (the adolescent Cherubino's lovelorn "Voi che sapete" from Act II and Figaro's famous, mock-heroic "Non piu andrai" from Act I) will be immediately recognized. (The arrangements were first published in the same print from the early-19th century, which also contains the divertimentos for two clarinets and basset horn.)
The arrangements from Cosi are by Rainer Schottstadt, a prominent contemporary bassoonist based in Cologne. The excerpts (all from Act I) include Fiordiligi's bravura aria "Come scoglio," Despina's coquettish "In uomini," Ferrando's effusive "Un aura amorosa," and the trio "Una bella serenata." In the last number, Ferrando and Guglielmo express their confidence in the face of Don Alonso's cynical challenge: they firmly believe that nothing can ever shake the loyalty and fidelity of their fiancees, Dorabella and Fiordiligi, and they will have cause to celebrate when the test is over.
Sonata for Two Clarinets (1918, rev. 1945)
Francis Poulenc
Born January 7, 1899 in Paris
Died January 30, 1963 in Paris
At the age of 19, Poulenc was already earning attention as a young composer from the circle of Erik Satie. Although he had only begun composing seriously the year before, his Rapsodie negre had become something of a sensation, and his career was on the rise. Understandably, Poulenc was very unhappy when he was called up for military service in January 1918, during the last year of the war. Fortunately, he was not sent to the front and was able to compose rather prolifically while wearing the uniform. One of the most successful products of these difficult months was the Sonata for Two Clarinets, one of Poulenc's first works to be published.
It is quite obvious that the young Poulenc was very much under Stravinsky's spell when he wrote the present work. Stravinsky had recently completed his Berceuses du chat (The Cat's Lullabies) for voice and three clarinets, and that work may have exerted a specific influence (the Three Pieces for Clarinet were written the same year as the Poulenc sonata, so there could be no question of a direct connection).
In his 1993 monograph on Poulenc, English musicologist Wilfrid Mellers offered a succinct description of this six-minute gem: "In the 1918 Sonate the two clarinet-pipers chortle like mountebanks at a Petrouchka-stye fair in the quick movements, while in the slow movement they lament in peasant monotone."
Three Pieces for Clarinet (1918)
Igor Stravinsky
fiorn June 17, 1882 in Oranienbaum, near
St. Petersburg, Russia Died April 6, 1971 in New York
Among the numerous instrumental and vocal miniatures Stravinsky composed during and shortly after World War I, these pieces stand out by their scoring for a single, unaccompanied melody instrument, one that, moreover, could play no double-stops like string instruments could, effectively precluding any kind of harmonic writing. Nevertheless, Stravinsky (for whom it was a matter of artistic philosophy to draw inspiration
from limitations) managed to put his unmistakable personal stamp on the piece. The rhythmical expansions and contractions in mixed meter recall such works as the earlier Rite of Spring and the later Symphonies of Wind Instruments. Stravinsky combined these rhythmic maneuvers with a lyrical exploration of the clarinet's sensuous lower register. The second piece is the only instance in Stravinsky's entire output to dispense with barlines. Eric Walter White, in his detailed survey of Stravinsky's works, described this movement as being "in an improvisatory vein, with fast-flowing arpeggios and arabesques, framing a slower, quieter, lower-pitched middle section." The last piece is again a study in mixed meters, but this time the tempo is fast, and the action takes place predominantly in the instrument's shrill upper register.
Stravinsky dedicated this work to Werner Re-inhart, a Swiss industrialist and amateur clarinetist who sponsored L'histoire du soldat in 1918.
French Suite No. 5, BWV 816
(for two clarinets and basset horn) (1723) Johann Sebastian Bach, Arr. Rainer Schottstadt Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig
J.S. Bach's musical thinking was predominantly contrapuntal, even when he was writing in the dance forms of his day. He may well be writing melodies with accompanying harmonies for a keyboard instrument, but he still leads the top, middle, and bottom voices as though intended for different players. Therefore, a work like the French Suite No. 5 lends itself surprisingly well for arrangement as an ensemble piece. Such a performance stresses the independence of the individual voices, which is the main idea behind the art of counterpoint.
Like all the French suites, No. 5 begins with an "Allemande" in which the dance character is much attenuated, with the emphasis on a continuous motion in The same kind of motion is typical of the "Courante" as well, but now the tempo is faster and the 34 meter conveys a stronger dance feel. The "Sarabande" is a slow movement in 34 meter, made eminently danceable by the symmetrical structure of the musical phrases. The "Gavotte" and the "Bourree" are both fairly straightforward fast dances in duple meter, but the
next movement, the "Loure," is again slow, and introduces actual contrapuntal imitation for the first time in the suite. The "Loure" is, in essence, a slow form of the gigue, and is here followed by a fast gigue which, in fact, is the last movement of every Baroque suite. The present "Gigue" takes the form of a full-fledged fugue in three parts, or rather two fugues, because the second half of the piece is really a new fugue where the theme of the first fugue is inverted (that is, turned upside down, with ascending intervals becoming descending and vice versa). Contrapuntal writing, then, gradually takes over the entire suite.
Divertimento I for three basset horns,
K. 439b (1783-88) Mozart
There are a total of 25 short pieces for two clarinets and basset horn that Mozart composed during the final decade of his life. It was probably the publish?er, Nikolaus Simrock in Bonn, who grouped them together in five "serenades," each containing five movements. (Another source calls the works "divertimentos," the title chosen by the modern editors of the pieces.) The movement sequence is fast-minuet-slow-minuet-fast; each movement is fairly short in duration and extremely simple in tex?ture. Yet even when he wrote such relatively unas?suming miniatures, Mozart gave ample evidence of his incomparable mastery.
Duet for Two Clarinets in C Major, Wq.
142 (H. 636) (unknown composition date) Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach Bom March 8, 1714 in Weimar, Germany Died December 14, 1788 in Hamburg
Credit for the invention of the modern clarinet usually goes to Johann Christoph Denner (1655-1707), who introduced some substantial improvements upon the Baroque chalumeau. Composers soon adopted the new member of the woodwind family; most notable from the Baroque era are the concertos by Antonio Vivaldi. Although J. S. Bach is not known to have used the instrument, Handel occasionally did. And Bach's second son, Carl Philipp Emanuel, one of the most original and forward-looking composers of his generation, wrote several sonatas and other works for clarinet.
There have been claims that the present Duet was originally written for a musical clock, yet the manuscript that has come down to us definitely as?signs it to two clarinets. The duet is in two move?ments (slow-fast) and probably dates from the fi?nal period of Bach's life when he served as director of music for the city of Hamburg.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
he music enthusiast may certainly know the basset horn, a rare instrument in the clarinet family whose dark tone is featured in Mozart's Requiem, K. 626. The clarinet player, however, also knows this instrument as a rather difficult one: it is often challenging to master both technically and in .terms of intonation. A trio of basset horns may have been unthinkable had it not been for Mozart and his five Divertimenti written for this particular instrumentation.
Mozart seemed to have had a particular infinity for the basset horn during his final years. Although many of his compositions with basset horn have fallen into near oblivion today, some even believe that the basset horn was his favorite instrument. The five above-mentioned Divertimenti (K. 439b) survived, but only as an arrangement for two clarinets and bassoon.
Sabine Meyer, Wolfgang her brother, and clarinet player Reiner Wehle formed the Trio di Clarone in 1983, sparked by their interest in how the original Divertimenti might have sounded. As the five Divertimenti of Mozart could not form a complete concert program, the trio was faced with the challenge of compiling their concert repertoire. Rather than include compositions of lesser quality by Mozart's contemporaries, they decided to contrast Mozart's ingenious works with important compositions of the present day.
This juxtaposition of Mozart and contemporary works soon became a success. Regular concert appearances in Germany and other European countries as well as numerous broadcast recordings and appearances on television have made Trio di Clarone quickly popular. Tours have brought them to the US, Africa, Japan, and China.
In their effort to perform seldom-heard original pieces, Trio di Clarone occasionally collaborates with other musicians, allowing the presentation of truly rare and interesting programs, including
pieces for three singers and three clarinet players or works for three clarinets and piano. To celebrate their 10th anniversary. Trio di Clarone collaborated with well-known American jazz clarinettist Eddie Daniels in a cross-over program, which was released on CD as Blues for Sabine by EMI Classics. In 2000, Trio di Clarone toured with German jazz clarinettist Michael Riessler for promotion of Bach 2000, which was also released by EMI Classics as Bach in 1 Hour. The trio has also collaborated and recorded with French hurdy-gurdy player, Pierre Charial, on their piece entitled Paris Mecanique. Their most recent project, released in summer 2009, is Invitacion al Danzon with Paquito D'Rivera.

Strong rhythm, fast melody, and a variety of percussive sounds blend to explore the humor and fun of Chinese drums. The music is a frolic between musicians and drums that reminds us of the happy days of our childhood.
Moon's Reflection on Er-Quan (2006)
Hua Yanjun,
Adapted by Wang Fujian
The erhu is a two-stringed, bowed instrument that is one of the most popular instruments in China. This work is adapted (to include the yangqin and xiao) from a famous folk piece for solo erhu that was composed by a blind street musician and symbolizes his suffering, endurance, hope, and triumph. The chamber music format enhances the artistic mood and conception of the original music. The music evokes a silent night with the moon reflecting in a clear spring, echoing the folk piece written decades ago.
In the Still of the Night (2007) Wang Fujian
"I saw the moonlight before my bed, and wondered if it were not the frost
on the ground. I raised my head and looked out on the
mountain moon. I bowed my head and thought of
my far-off home."
This is a classic poem by the ancient poet Li Bai (701-762 AD), who is widely considered one of the greatest poets from the golden age of Chinese poetry. Interpreting this poem, the composer used the mellow and simple timbre of Chinese musical instruments to present a clear and tranquil night.
The Silk Road (2007) Jiang Ying
The iconic Silk Road symbolizes the cultural exchange between the East and the West. This piece displays the exotic features of musical elements from Western China and Western Asia and features the ruan, liuqin, dizi, and percussion.
Autumn Yearning by the Dresser
Arr. by Fang Yu and Qiao Haibo
This piece was originally composed for pipa as the fourth tune of Frontier Song Suite, based on the Chinese folk story of Zhao Jun traveling abroad. It pictured Zhao Jun's nostalgia and sadness when coming to the frontier.
The Rainbow Skirt and the Feathered
Coat (for String Ensemble) Traditional
This piece of work is ancient and elegant. Performed by seven female musicians, the music sounds like a colorful and romantic dream.
Jijiruling (Instrumental Ensemble) (1995) Tang Jianping
The rapid beat of the percussion represents the busy and stressful life of modern people. Later, the free rhythm and familiar melody shows a return to peace and the sweetness of life.
Moonlight on the Spring River
(Instrumental Ensemble) Traditional
This piece is the earliest traditional melody adapted for modern Chinese instruments in Shanghai. It typifies the development of Chinese music in Shanghai at the turn of the 20th century. Here, the arrangement provides a clean, terse form and a more complex instrumental configuration for rich acoustic effects. In this new interpretation, the lyricism in the original score is enriched with an opulent textural harmony.
Program notes provided by Arts Midwest.
ounded in 1952, the Shanghai Chinese Orchestra is the first large-scale modern Chinese orchestra in China. The Orchestra is famous for the unique collaborations between its members and its mastery of diverse works. The Orchestra plays an important role in the development of Chinese music.
The Shanghai Chinese Orchestra continues to develop an extensive repertoire, performed by renowned musicians. Its performance repertoire includes large-format Chinese orchestral works as well as midand small-scale traditional works, such as stringed and wind instrumental pieces, Cantonese music, plucked-string instrumental ensembles, and percussion instrumental ensembles. The Shanghai Chinese Orchestra is also actively engaged in composition, which contributes to the Orchestra's rich repertoire. These compositions have received awards from a variety of venues, including the Shanghai Spring International Music Festival and the Shanghai International Art Festival, as well as venues around the world.
The Shanghai Chinese Orchestra has per?formed in more than 80 cities in China and has toured to more than 30 countries and regions throughout the world. The Orchestra often per?forms for prestigious audiences, including the presidents and chairmen of other countries when they visit China. In 2001 and 2003, the Orchestra performed two Chinese New Year concerts--The Year of Snake New Year Concert and The Year of Goat New Year Concert in the Musikverein, Vi?enna--to wide acclaim in Europe. In addition, the Orchestra is frequently invited to perform in major activities at home, such as the 2006 Shanghai Co?operation Organization summit, the ASEAN Sum?mit, the 2007 Special Olympics Games, the 2008 and 2010 Shanghai National Day Concert, and the 2010 Shanghai EXPO Week.

Designated as a "Best Practice" program by ArtServe Michigan and the Dana Foun?dation, UMS is dedicated to making world-class performance opportunities and professional devel?opment activities available to K-12 students and educators.
201112 Youth Performance Series
These daytime performances give pre-K through high school students the opportunity to see the same internationally renowned performances as the general public. The Winter 2012 season features the following performances for school audiences: Sphinx Junior Division Honors Concert, Cham-
ber Ensemble of the Shanghai Chinese Orchestra, Sweet Honey In The Rock, San Francisco Symphony, and Zakir Hussain and Masters of Percussion.
Teacher Appreciation Month! February 2012 is Teacher Appreciation Month. Visit www.ums.orgeducation for special ticket discount information.
Teacher Workshop Series
UMS is part of the Kennedy Center Partners in Edu?cation Program, offering educators meaningful pro?fessional development opportunities. Workshops, cultural immersions, and book clubs bring the best in local and national arts education to our com?munity, through presentations by Kennedy Center teaching artists, UMS performing artists, and local arts and culture experts. This series focuses on arts
integration, giving teachers techniques for incorpo?rating the arts into everyday classroom instruction.
Student-Artist Interactions
Whenever possible, UMS brings its artists into schools to conduct workshops and interactive performances directly with students, creating an intimate and special experience in students' own environment.
Teacher Advisory Committee
This group of regional educators, school admin?istrators, and K-12 arts education advocates ad?vises and assists UMS in determining K-12 pro?gramming, policy, and professional development. If you would like to participate, please contact
UMS is in partnership with the Ann Arbor Public Schools and the Washtenaw Intermediate School District as part of the Kennedy Center: Partners in Education Program. UMS also participates in the Ann Arbor Public Schools' "Partners in Excellence" program.
UMS Teen
UMS nurtures the development of young artists and audiences with a yearlong collaborative performance (Breakin' Curfew), ticket discounts (see page 20), and occasional internship op?portunities for outstanding high school students.
Breakin' Curfew
In a special collaboration with the Neutral Zone, Ann Arbor's teen center, UMS presents this an?nual performance on Friday, May 11, 2012 at the Power Center, highlighting the area's best teen performers. This show is curated, designed, mar?keted, and produced by teens under the mentor-ship of UMS staff.

here 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 volunteer?ing. Your financial investment andor gift of time to UMS allows us to continue connecting artists and audiences, now and into the future.
As a UMS corporate sponsor, your business comes to the attention of an educated, diverse, and loyal audience of performing arts lovers from throughout southeastern Michigan. You make possible one of our community's great?est assets, and receive valuable benefits for your investment. For example, UMS offers a range of programs that, depending on your level of sup?port, provide a unique venue for:
Cultivating clients
Recruiting top talent
Developing business-to-business relationships
Targeting messages to specific demographic groups
Enhancing corporate image
Making highly visible links with awardwinning education programs
Rewarding employees
For more information, please call 734.647.1176.
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 734.647.1176 to learn how your business can benefit from advertising in the UMS program book.
We could not present our season without the invaluable financial support of individual donors. Ticket revenue covers only 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 36 or call 734.647.1175.
The UMS Advisory Committee is an organiza?tion of over 80 volunteers who contribute more than 7,500 hours of service to UMS each year. The Advisory Committee champions the mis?sion and advances the goals of UMS through community engagement, financial support, and other volunteer service.
Advisory Committee members work to in?crease awareness of and participation in UMS programs through the Education & Commu?nity Engagement committee, ushering at UMS youth performances, and partnerships with vari?ous U-M and community groups.
Raising money to support UMS Education Programs is another major goal of the Advisory Committee. Upcoming events include:
17th Annual Ford Honors Gala
Violinist Joshua Bell and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields will receive the 2012 UMS Distinguished Artist Award in a brief ceremony as part of their season-ending concert on Sun?day, April 22, 2012. The UMS Advisory Commit?tee organizes a Gala event around the perfor?mance, which includes the presentation of the DTE Energy Foundation Educator and School of the Year Awards, to raise funds for UMS's Edu?cation & Community Engagement Programs. Tickets for the concert are available now; infor?mation about purchasing tickets for the Gala will be available in February at
The Ford Honors Program recognizes the longtime gener?ous support of UMS's Education Program by Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services.
On the Road with UMS
Held each September as a launch to the UMS season, more than 300 people annually enjoy an evening of food, music, and silent and live auc?tions. The 2011 event was held at the A. Alfred Taubman Biomedical Science Research Building and netted nearly $100,000 to support UMS Education Programs.
Advisory Presents...
These social and educational opportunities fall into three categories: Advisory Nights--ca?sual events in members' homes or a specialized gathering in a community location; Artful En?counters--events incorporating the relationship between the visual and performing arts; and Unique Experiences--special opportunities for Advisory Committee members and friends to en?joy themed activities that will typically include a dining experience.
For more information on events being planned for this season, or if you are interested in joining the Advisory Committee, please call 734.647.8009.
MS has been able to present world-class performances and programs for 133 years because of the loyalty of our donors, many of whom have made multiple gifts to the organization over a number of years. In particular, there are several individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies that have provided significant leadership support to the organization over time, enabling UMS to engage more audience members, provide education programs, and expand our offerings. We recognize here those donors whose cumulative giving to UMS totals $500,000 or more.
