At UMS, our mission goes beyond performance. We want you to create, to explore, and to experience extraordinary new things.

UMS Night School: Constructing Identity Mondays 1/18–2/15, 7–8:30 pm
(U-M Alumni Center, 200 Fletcher St.)
In our ongoing Night School series, UMS explores the dynamic quality of how human and social identities are constructed and explored in this season's artistic program. How do artists' personal identities inform their work? Do audiences' own identities shape what they see on the stage? UMS Night School invites participants to discover the intersections of performance and identity in music, theater, and dance, and to meet others who share a similar interest. The Night School curriculum will include attendance at and discussion of Young Jean Lee's Theater Company's Untitled Feminist Show & Straight White Men, Tanya Tagaq, Taylor Mac, and Camille A. Brown & Dancers Black Girl-Linguistic Play. These 90-minute classes combine conversation, interactive exercises, and lectures with genre experts to draw you into the themes related to identity and performance. Drop in to just one session, or attend them all. Events are free, and no pre-registration is required.

Tradition Builds the Future
In our 137th season, we continue to showcase traditional performances alongside contemporary artists for an offering that is unlike anything available in the Midwest. UMS grew from a group of local members of the University and townspeople in the 1870s 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. Many Choral Union members were also affiliated with the University, and the University Musical Society was established soon after in December 1880.
Since that first season, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the very best from a wide spectrum of the performing arts: internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and global music performers, and contemporary stagework and classical theater. Through educational programming, the commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies, and collaborative projects, we continue to strengthen our reputation for artistic distinction and innovation.

Now, we enjoy each season all the more because, as donors, we're an active part of UMS. What a privilege!”

Wynton Marsalis, Managing and Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, was born in New Orleans in 1961. Mr. Marsalis began his classical training on trumpet at age 12 and soon began playing in local bands of diverse genres. He entered The Juilliard School at age 17 and joined Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Mr. Marsalis made his recording debut as a leader in 1982, and has since recorded more than 70 jazz and classical albums which have garnered him nine Grammy Awards. In 1983, he became the first and only artist to win both classical and jazz Grammy Awards in the same year, and he repeated this feat in 1984.
In 1997, Mr. Marsalis became the first jazz artist to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in music for his oratorio Blood on the Fields, which was commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center. To mark the 200th Anniversary of Harlem's historical Abyssinian Baptist Church in 2008, Mr. Marsalis composed a full mass for choir and jazz orchestra. The piece premiered at Jazz at Lincoln Center and followed with performances at the celebrated church. Mr. Marsalis composed his second symphony, Blues Symphony, which was premiered in 2009 by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and was performed again by the Boston Symphony
Orchestra in 2010. In 2010, Mr. Marsalis premiered his third symphony, Swing Symphony, a co-commission by the New York Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and The Barbican Centre. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis performed the piece with the Berliner Philharmoniker in Berlin in 2010, with the New York Philharmonic in New York City in 2010, and with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in Los Angeles in 2011.
Mr. Marsalis is also an internationally respected teacher and spokesman for music education, and has received honorary doctorates from dozens of universities and colleges throughout the US. He conducts educational programs for students of all ages and hosts the popular Jazz for Young People concerts produced by Jazz at Lincoln Center. Mr. Marsalis has also written and is the host of the video series Marsalis on Music and the radio series Making the Music. He has written six books: Sweet Swing Blues on the Road in collaboration with photographer Frank Stewart; Jazz in the Bittersweet Blues of Life with Carl Vigeland; To a Young Musician: Letters from the Road with Selwyn Seyfu Hinds; Moving to Higher Ground: How Jazz Can Change Your Life with Geoffrey C. Ward, published by Random House in 2008; and Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!, illustrated by poster artist Paul Rogers and published in 2012. In October 2005, Candlewick Press released Mr. Marsalis' Jazz ABZ: An A to Z Collection of Jazz Portraits of 26 poems celebrating jazz greats, illustrated by Mr. Rogers.
In 2001, Mr. Marsalis was appointed Messenger of Peace by Mr. Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations, and he has also been designated cultural ambassador to the United States of
America by the US State Department through their CultureConnect program. In 2009, Mr. Marsalis was awarded France's Legion of Honor, the highest honor bestowed by this government. He has also been named to the Bring New Orleans Back Commission, former New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin's initiative to help rebuild New Orleans culturally, socially, economically, and uniquely for every citizen. Mr. Marsalis was instrumental in the Higher Ground Hurricane Relief concert, produced by Jazz at Lincoln Center, which raised over $3 million for the Higher Ground Relief Fund.
Mr. Marsalis led the effort to construct Jazz at Lincoln Center's new home, Frederick P. Rose Hall, which opened in October 2004

Mr. Gardner is featured on a number of notable recordings and has recorded five CDs as a leader for Steeplechase Records.

Vincent Gardner (Music Director, Trombone) was born in Chicago in 1972 and was raised in Hampton, VA. After singing, playing piano, violin, saxophone, and French horn at an early age, he decided on the trombone at age 12. He attended Florida A&M University and the University of North Florida. He soon caught the ear of Mercer Ellington, who hired Mr. Gardner for his first professional job. He moved to Brooklyn, NY after graduating from college, completed a world tour with Lauryn Hill in 2000, and then joined the Jazz at Lincoln Center
