Cultural Events Series

2014.2015 Max DePree, author of Leadership Is an Art, once said, “We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are.” With this quote in mind, I propose: “The Cultural Events Series at Frostburg State University cannot become what it wants by remaining what it is.” What do we want to become? We have talked several years about whether the Cultural Events Series should change its name. As we struggled with the thought to change the name, we stumbled on the realization that it is NOT the name change that will help us become what we want; it is more about the way we look at things and the way people look at us. Surprisingly, this was reinforced by the following words of wisdom gleaned from a fortune cookie: “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.”​ CES wants to become a catalyst that leads the charge to grow and build our community. CES will continue to offer great performances, more flexibility to build a series of the shows that fit your schedule, opportunities to experience performances in non-traditional settings, such as our LIVE! at StarScape club, and chances to meet and greet the artists; but we will also focus more on building memories and shaping experiences for you and our communities. Change is not always drastic nor is it a speedy process. Subtle changes can make a bigger impact than those big changes. You may notice some changes, such as the look of the brochure, a change in program content, new seating patterns or new audience members; but you can be assured that CES will make the changes that will enable us to further grow audiences and build communities for the future. We are dedicated to making the changes our community demands from us. Let us know how we can provide great performing arts and arts experiences you will take with you in your quest to grow and change. Join us as we strive to: n Cultivate the arts n Educate the next generation n Shape the future There’s a great year ahead for CES and YOU! Make memories with us this season!

Capstone Concert featuring the

Jay Ungar and Molly Mason Band Celebrate the heart and soul of American roots music. Jay Ungar and Molly Mason gather inspiration from Appalachian, bluegrass, Cajun, Scandinavian and Celtic traditions along with favorites from the golden age of country, jazz and swing. Their sound morphs from string band to swing band, Cajun band to Celtic band, country band to Civil War-era dance orchestra. “Jay and Molly make music that is simple and overwhelming . . . joyful and full of feeling . . . an apotheosis of American traditional music,” said Garrison Keillor, who worked with the duo as part of his program, A Prairie Home Companion. Filmmaker Ken Burns, who has featured the couple’s music in several of his celebrated PBS documentaries, said, “Jay Ungar and Molly Mason play music from the heart, which reminds us of the best in all of us.”

“ On stage, Mason and Ungar complement each other like a finely crafted fiddle and bow. Together they weave a rich postmodern musical magic carpet on which listeners may vicariously glide back in time and experience firsthand the sonorous riches of traditional music.” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

After their Asian debut with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Sing Tao Daily described them: “Joining two hearts and four hands at two grand pianos, the Naughton sisters created an electrifying and moving musical performance.” The San Francisco Examiner hailed them for their “stellar musicianship, technical mastery and awe-inspiring artistry,” and Germany’s Saarbrücker Zeitung declared, “This double star could soon prove to be a supernova.”

“ Critic’s Choice! They tell me vaudeville died some time ago, but you wouldn’t know it from watching the RSC. The knockabout, anythingfor-a-laugh spirit of the ancient genre is alive and well in The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged). These three agile and quick-witted guys … there’s no denying their ingenuity when it comes to grabbing comedy out of thin air.” – Boston Globe

The fruitcakes of the Reduced Shakespeare Company take an irreverent and heartwarming journey through the holidays in The Ultimate Christmas Show. It’s festive family fun as these three wise guys send up and celebrate everyone’s favorite winter holiday traditions. Learn how Santa saved Christmas, cringe at the origin of the term “nutcracker” and gasp at the shocking history of our best-loved Christmas traditions. Founded in 1981, the three-man troupe transforms long and sometimes serious subjects into sharp, witty comedy. Their performances all over the world are praised for inspired madness. A Variety review asked, “Is there anything these men can’t reduce?” while an amused critic from the Pittsburgh Post-Review joked, “I laughed so much that I didn’t take enough notes to write a review.”

She has been acclaimed by The New York Times as “a virtuosic burst of energy” and the BBC labeled her “the Galician bagpipe diva.” By blending her love of the gaita with the influences of jazz, world music and Latin sounds, she brings her Galician roots to a larger audience. “It is so easy to see how we are all connected and speak the same language when it comes to the music,” she said. Joining her are the master musicians who appeared on her 2013 album, Migrations: Victor Prieto on accordion, Edward Perez on double bass, Eric Doob on drums and percussionist John Haddonfield.

“ On the stage we can feel the energy of Jay Gatsby, the sensual allure of Daisy Buchanan and the everyman complexity of Nick Carraway. The Montana Repertory Theatre approaches The Great Gatsby with all the honor and care a great work of art deserves.” – MRT Artistic Director Greg Johnson

The Montana Repertory Theatre presents

The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald’s heartbreaking Jazz Age novel, The Great Gatsby, is considered to be among America’s greatest literary works. It’s now given life onstage in an adaptation that conveys all of the decadence, idealism and tragedy of Fitzgerald’s cautionary tale. The play was adapted for the stage by Simon Levy, the only playwright ever granted such an honor by the Fitzgerald estate. Mr. Levy’s The Great Gatsby was a 2007 finalist for the prestigious PEN Literary Award in Drama and the London Free Press pronounced it “a beautifully crafted interpretation of the 1925 novel which defined the Jazz Age. … This is indeed a grand GATSBY.” Regarded as one of America’s most respected touring companies, the Montana Repertory Theatre assembles a team of actors, directors and designers with prestigious credits, including Broadway, Off-Broadway, national tours of Broadway shows and major regional theatre.

“ Though she writes her own songs, she puts original, idiosyncratic and virtuosic force on old repertory, some of it from the high era of American songbook standards, some of it older than jazz itself.

At the age of 25, jazz songstress Cécile McLorin-Salvant has already dazzled audiences worldwide. Her expressive style and masterful vocal technique have prompted comparisons to legendary divas like Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. In 2010 she won the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Competition, and her recent album, WomanChild, was nominated for the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album. Jazz master Wynton Marsalis praises her “poise, elegance, soul, humor, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth and grace.” Paris Hot Club Magazine labeled her “a young jazz prodigy,” while The New York Times raved, “Ms. McLorin-Salvant has it all: perfect pitch and enunciation, a playful sense of humor, a rich and varied tonal palette, a supple sense of swing, exquisite taste in songs and phrasing, and a deep connection to lyrics.” ARTS FOR ENRICHMENT
