LANE SERIES - A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra with David Krakauer:

Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Description: LANE SERIES - A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra with David Krakauer: A cohesive, collective, conductorless marvel, A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra is breathing new life into the chamber orchestra repertoire with its creative programming and elegant playing. This group of 18 players will sound extraordinary in the acoustics of our recital hall. The program includes Hildegard von Bingen’s “The Origin of Fire,” Beethoven’s “Heiliger Dankgesang,” from Quartet op. 132, and, the heart of the program, Osvaldo Golijov’s haunting work, “The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind,” based on the writings of a 13th century mystical Rabbi of Provence. The great Klezmer clarinetist, David Krakauer, will join the orchestra for this work.

Pre-performance talk at 6:30pm.

Friday, October 18th, 7:30 p.m., UVM Recital Hall. 6 Free tickets available to Global Village students. Stop by the L/L Director's Office (205 Commons) to pick up a ticket (Mon-Fri, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) while supplies last!

LANE SERIES - Imani Winds

Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Description: LANE SERIES - Imani Winds

“As an ensemble, the Imani Winds cultivate the big, rich sound one associates with classical players — and they also display the daring, respond in-the moment qualities one associates with a swinging jazz combo.” — Chris Waddington, New Orleans Times Picayune

It has been a while since we have had the delightful Imani Winds in our hall. The country’s premiere wind quintet, the Imani ceaselessly tour our world’s finest venues and series, bringing their exceptional musicality and vision to a wide range of audiences. Committed to music from the classical chamber music repertoire, the group is also known for its adventurous programming and focus on works by Latino/a and African-American composers through their current “Legacy Project.” The quintet regularly collaborates with artists ranging from Yo-Yo Ma to Wayne Shorter. Shorter’s Terra Incognita – his first-ever composition for another ensemble – was premiered by Imani Winds. On the Lane Series, they will perform works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Astor Piazzolla, Anders Hillborg, Paul Hindemith, Julio Madaglia, and Valerie Coleman.

Pre-performance talk at 6:30pm.

Friday, October 25th, 7:30pm, UVM Recital Hall. Limited number of tickets. Look for sign-ups in L/L Director's Office.
