NC Dances VT

Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Location: Mann Hall Gym, Trinity Campus
Description: Featuring work by Van Dyke Dance Group, Paul Besaw, and Christal Brown

Many roads travel through Greensboro, North Carolina. And a good number of those roads head toward Vermont. NC dances VT gathers together the work of three distinctive voices in dance, all with one major thing in common–Greensboro, NC.

The Greensboro-based Van Dyke Dance Group showcases Jan Van Dyke’s choreography, known for its dynamic energy and rhythmic precision. Her dances are highly structured and meticulously crafted, while the movement vocabulary is quick, vigorous and driving. Professor emeriti and former Chair of Dance at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Van Dyke knows both Paul Besaw (MFA) and Christal Brown (BFA) as former students. Now living, working, and leading their respective dance programs at UVM and Middlebury College, Besaw and Brown contribute the unique artistic approaches they have developed since their days in Greensboro to this rich gathering of dance.

Andrew Rangell, piano “Models and Mimics: Homages in Music”

Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Location: UVM Recital Hall
Description: Presented in cooperation with UVM Lane Series

The superb American pianist has returned to the concert stage after a seven-year hiatus recovering from a devastating hand injury. Now in fine concert form, he has focused his performances on thematic programming that incorporates elements beyond music. Through his active recording career, he has compiled a mindbogglingly vast and varied repertoire from Renaissance to new music, and including things like all of Beethoven’s and much of Bach’s keyboard output.

A multi-day residency on campus will have him working with students, both of piano, literature, and the humanities. On our stage, he will perform a spectacular program with interrelated works by Scarlatti, Stravinsky, Halffter, UVM’s own David Feuerzeig, and featuring Charles Ives’ Concord Sonata, a little-heard work of great brilliance that is an homage to the great American Transcendentalists like Emerson, Thoreau, and Alcott.

Vermont Wind Ensemble Concert

Time: 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Location: UVM Music Recital Hall
Description: Alan Parshley, Director

The Vermont Wind Ensemble presents an exciting program of contrasts: light and darkness, celebration and introspection. Frank Ticheli’s spectacular composition “Angels in the Architecture” is a musical essay on the struggle between light and what lurks in the darkness. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Russian Easter Overture” was written in memory of fellow Russian composers Mussorgsky and Borodine. This stirring and magical piece ranks among the finest compositions that Rimsky-Korsakov wrote, and has been masterfully transcribed for concert band by William V. Johnson. Traditional Japanese folk songs and native Japanese percussion instruments inspired Yasuhide Ito to write his exciting “Festal Scenes”. Also included on the program: Steven Bryant’s peaceful and contemplative “Dusk”, Howard Hanson’s “Choral and Alleluia”, and a march by Henry Fillmore, “The Klaxon”.

Program:
Yasuhide Ito, Festal Scenes
Howard Hanson, Chorale and Alleluia

University Jazz Ensemble Concert

Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Description: Swingin’ the Blues: Music of the Count Basie Orchestra

Along with Duke Ellington, Count Basie is considered the most important big band leader in the history of jazz. This concert will feature Basie’s music from two distinct periods:

The Old Testament Band
Rarely performed transcriptions of Basie’s recordings from the late 1930s that featured the “All-American Rhythm Section” as well as soloists Lester Young, Harry “Sweets” Edison, vocalist Jimmy Rushing and many other jazz legends and that propelled Basie’s Southwest “territory” band into an international phenomena.

The New Testament Band
Music by the arrangers Neal Hefti, Sammy Nestico, Frank Foster, and others that helped Basie reinvent his band in the 1950s after the decline of the touring big bands.

UVM Opera Workshop Performance

Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Location: UVM Music Recital Hall
Description: The UVM Opera Workshop presents: The Telephone and A Hand of Bridge

Join us for an evening of comic 20th-century 1-act American operas and arias. Gian-Carlo Menotti's The Telephone, or "L'Amour a Trois" is famous for its hilarious protagonists' obsession with her phone and the desperation of her very neglected boyfriend. In Samuel Barber's amusingly perverse opera, A Hand of Bridge, the action literally takes place around a bridge table, where two dysfunctional couples reveal their inner thoughts to the audience as they play. Following these 2 short works, the Opera Workshop students will present arias from the wonderfully diverse American opera repertoire, including Barber's Vanessa, Menotti's The Consul and The Old Maid and the Thief and Moore's The Ballad of Baby Doe.
