UW School of Music 2013-14 Concert Season
The University of Washington School of Music presents its 2013-14 concert season.
WELCOME Welcome to a remarkable year in the life of the UW School of Music. In our 2013-14 concert season, we welcome new and notable faculty and launch important collaborations with organizations in the Seattle and UW arts communities. These new developments foretell wonderful enrichment opportunities for our students, audiences, and all who benefit from the School of Music and its activities. I invite you to read all of the details contained in this brochure and to partake of the offerings on our events calendar, but meanwhile, a few highlights are worthy of special mention. We kick off the academic year by joining with local arts organization Earshot Jazz to celebrate two very notable additions to our Jazz Studies faculty—guitarist Bill Frisell as an affiliate professor of music and drummer Ted Poor as a full time artist-in-residence. Both figure prominently in a string of concerts in early November, presented in conjunction with Earshot Jazz and the Earshot Jazz Festival (page 2). We are thrilled this year to announce a residency by Seattle production company Pacific MusicWorks (PMW) and to welcome PMW Artistic Director Stephen Stubbs to our faculty. The first production of PMW’s residency at the School of Music, a co-presentation of Handel’s Semele, runs May 16, 17, and 18 at Meany Theater (page 3). David Alexander Rahbee joins us this year as conductor of the UW Symphony, and Seattle Symphony Music Director Ludovic Morlot assumes leadership of our orchestral conducting program. Both conductors take a turn at the podium during our February 14 UW Symphony concert (pages 12-13). We join with the UW World Series in March to host the return of New York’s JACK Quartet, which concludes a weeklong residency at the School of Music with two distinct concerts March 15 at the Meany Studio Theater (page 4). Our faculty musicians make frequent guest appearances at performances throughout the season and in their own solo concerts (pages 10-11). Our students, motivated by their proximity to great music and great musicianship, continue to demonstrate their own, remarkable musical development. Their discoveries and their progress are inspiring to behold (pages 12-19). Music-making by its very nature encourages alliance, collaboration, and partnership as well as the intense focus of each individual musician. Both approaches are in abundance throughout our 2013-14 concert season. We invite you to join us!

The gamelan, which Ki Midiyanto named Hapsari Kusumajaya, traveled to Seattle by sea from the island of Java in Indonesia, arriving at the UW in March. Assistant Professor Christina Sunardi of the School of Music’s Ethnomusicology Program (pictured above) says the acquisition will enable her to teach gamelan ensemble courses, use the instruments for lecture-demonstrations and workshops, invite master gamelan musicians from Indonesia for residencies at the School of Music, and organize performances that feature the use of these instruments. Sunardi says she also looks forward to continued collaboration with the University of Washington Southeast Asia Center, the Seattle ensemble Gamelan Pacifica, Seattle Pacific University, and the local Indonesian community in the research, teaching, performance and promotion of Indonesian arts and culture. The UW’s new gamelan makes its Meany Theater debut on Tuesday, May 20, 7:30 pm. See details, this page.

Opera: G.F. Handel: Semele MAY 16, 17 & 18 (FRI, SAT & SUN) G. F. Handel’s brilliant English oratorio Semele illuminates the darkly comedic story of a mortal woman’s tryst with a dangerous God.

Stubbs, artistic director of Seattle’s Pacific MusicWorks, joins the School of Music faculty in fall 2013 as a senior artist-in-residence and makes his public debut at the UW in May 2014 as artistic director and conductor of a Pacific MusicWorks and School of Music co-production of Handel’s 1743 opera Semele. A Seattle native and UW alumnus, Stubbs gained international prominence as an opera director and lutenist during a 30-year career in Europe. Since his return to Seattle in 2006, he has made his mark as a musical director, guest conductor, and founder of organizations devoted to the study and production of baroque opera and oratorio. Stubbs will apply his expertise in that area at the UW during the 2013-14 academic year, preparing School of Music students in voice and instrumental performance to perform side by side with professional musicians and opera singers in the Semele production, set for May 16-18, 2014 at Meany Theater. “I’m thrilled to be joining the faculty of the UW School of Music,” Stubbs says of his appointment, “and am honored to be entrusted with a revival of the baroque ideals of apprenticeship and mentoring, but made specifically relevant to the contemporary cultural scene and the needs of today’s students.” * The May 18 performance features UW music student understudies performing alongside professionals in select roles.
