TO YOUR UNIVERSITY C E N T E R F O R T H E A RT S The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance empowers students to create, collaborate, innovate, and inspire. Through teaching, creative artistry, research, advocacy, and service,

we elevate arts education. If you are a returning patron of the University Center for the Arts (UCA), then the quality of the work of our students, faculty, and staff requires no introduction. If you are new to the UCA, then welcome! The UCA is a special place for CSU students, faculty, and staff, as well as for dance, music, theatre, and art lovers from throughout the Front Range and region. It is a place for making connections in the visual and performing arts, allowing performers, exhibitors, educators, scholars, and arts lovers the opportunity to converge and interact in a single, inspiring location. The UCA is where students display, in live performance on stage, what they learn each day in the classroom and studio. The UCA is where our outstanding faculty exhibit their creative and scholarly accomplishments and work collaboratively for the benefit of our students. It is where our dedicated and talented staff provide the physical environment that allows our students to excel in every aspect of the performing arts. All of this combines to create a place for our valued audience to experience the power of live dance, music, and theatre on the CSU campus and in the beautiful City of Fort Collins. The Fall 2017 UCA season is once again about diversity of genres, eras, and ideas. From the early stages of opera — Xerxes by George Frideric Handel — to the classic play The Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov, to the annual Halloween Organ Extravaganza, there are performances that will appeal to any interest and many that will challenge every audience. The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance (SMTD) continues its collaboration with the City of Fort Collins Lincoln Center with the fourth season of the Classical Convergence Concert Series, opening with the amazing group Black Violin on Sept. 30. The rest of the season features an eclectic lineup of outstanding chamber ensembles, including the Canadian Brass, Publiquartet, and SHUFFLE. SMTD faculty shine weekly on the Virtuoso Concert Series and our students are on stage almost daily in performances by CSU orchestras, bands, jazz ensembles, new music ensemble,chamber ensembles, and choral ensembles. Theatre students are featured not only on stage, but behind the scenes, designing and constructing sets, lighting, costumes, sound, projection, props... everything! And, don’t miss the Fall Dance and Dance Capstone Concerts... but get tickets soon as these shows sell out fast. Finally, if you love what you hear and see as much as I do, please consider making a donation in support of the incredible work of our students. If you are interested in making a difference for a student, please contact me at dan.goble@colostate.edu, or at (970) 491-5529, or visit advancing.colostate.edu/smtd I look forward to seeing you at the UCA!

MUSIC PERFORMANCES | AUGUST—OCTOBER 2017

University Symphony Orchestra Concert In Collaboration with CSU Theatre to Present: Every Good Boy Deserves Favor With Guest Wesley Ferreira, Clarinet Thursday, September 21, and Friday, September 22, 7:30 p.m., Griffin Concert Hall, UCA The University Symphony Orchestra and CSU Theatre perform Every Good Boy Deserves Favor, the brilliant effort between composer Andre Previn and the fecund playwright Tom Stoppard. Not often produced due to the challenge of staging a play requiring a full orchestra, the production — conducted by Maestro Wes Kenney and directed by Dr. Eric Prince — celebrates the collaborative capabilities of the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance. The story concerns dissident Alexander Ivanov; imprisoned in a Soviet mental hospital, he will not be released until admitting that his statements against the government were caused by a (non-existent) mental disorder. In the hospital, he shares a cell with a genuinely disturbed schizophrenic, also called Ivanov, who believes to have an orchestra under his command. The play satirizes the Soviet practice of treating political dissidence as mental illness, and its title will be recognized as the classic mnemonic used by music students to remember the notes on the lines of the treble clef. To add to the intrigue, CSU faculty member Dr. Wesley Ferreira joins the orchestra on David Schiff's Canti di Davide, a mesmerizing clarinet concerto in homage to the late pianist David Golub. Sergei Prokofiev's score to the film Lt. Kije rounds out this provocative evening. Voice Area Recital / FREE Tuesday, September 26, 7:30 p.m., Organ Recital Hall, UCA Performances of art songs and arias from undergraduate and graduate voice majors.

Symphonic Band Concert An American Songbook Wednesday, October 4, 7:30 p.m., Griffin Concert Hall, UCA The Symphonic Band, conducted by Dr. Richard Frey, kicks off their season with a vibrant program of American works for wind band. Combining patriotic and contemporary pieces, this concert explores music in our contemporary society. Vincent Persichetti’s stirring A Lincoln Address, and Christopher Nelson’s beautiful setting of Wayfaring Stranger, are highlights of this all-American concert. 13

Percussion Ensemble Concert With Guest Peter Ferry, Percussion Sunday, October 8, 6 p.m., Griffin Concert Hall, UCA The concert features the music of Elliot Cole, performed with guest percussionist Peter Ferry.

Benjamin Britten's Simple Symphony, Op. 4 concludes the program. “Mozart wrote his first symphony when he was only eight! Britten's symphony is based on piano pieces that he wrote when he was only ten. I commissioned Suilean a Chloinne from Scottish composer Jennifer Barker when I took the Bay Youth Orchestras of Virginia to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2006,” explains Stewart. “These works capture the innocence and wonder of young children.” The University Chorus joins the orchestra on the program. 14

Virtuoso Series Concert, Janet Landreth, Piano Monday, October 16, 7:30 p.m., Organ Recital Hall, UCA

CSU faculty member Janet Landreth performs works by the “Poet of the Piano,” Frederic Chopin, who captures the passion of 19th century romanticism: poignant lyricism, chromatic expressiveness, and brilliant virtuosity. “Chopin’s music speaks to me in a very personal way, particularly after performing in Mallorca, Spain and visiting Valldemosso, the monastery where Chopin lived and contracted his final illness,” remembers Dr. Landreth. According to Byron Janis, who produced a rare documentary on Chopin, many of the piano works written in Mallorca were “gloomy and sad ­— they please your ear, but break your heart.” Halloween Organ Extravaganza Tuesday, October 31, 7 p.m., 9 p.m., 11 p.m., Organ Recital Hall, UCA The organ studio and CSU faculty member Joel Bacon present the 12th annual Halloween Organ Extravaganza, with classic (and not-so-classic) works, including the famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor by J.S.

University Symphony Orchestra Concert In Collaboration with CSU Theatre to Present: Every Good Boy Deserves Favor Thursday, September 21, and Friday, September 22, 7:30 p.m., Griffin Concert Hall, UCA Every Good Boy Deserves Favor, the brilliant effort between composer Andre Previn and the fecund playwright Tom Stoppard, celebrates the collaborative capabilities of the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance. Not often produced due to the challenge of staging a play requiring a full orchestra, the story concerns dissident Alexander Ivanov; imprisoned in a Soviet mental hospital, he will not be released until admitting that his statements against the government were caused by a (non-existent) mental disorder. In the hospital, he shares a cell with a genuinely disturbed schizophrenic, also called Ivanov, who believes to have an orchestra under his command. The play satirizes the Soviet practice of treating political dissidence as mental illness, and its title will be recognized as the classic mnemonic used by music students to remember the notes on the lines of the treble clef. This production promises to be a quite remarkable artistic event, integrating the power of a symphonic orchestra with the artistry of actors, marrying Andre Previn's superbly orchestrated music with Tom Stoppard's brilliant dramatic satire on the absurdity of the Soviet era system. Possibly even more relevant than ever in the new United States of alternative facts and the political inversions of truth and deception. —Eric Prince 23

Theatre season design by Nathan Young / Mike Solo

Chekhov insisted that he wrote comedies and was so angry at his director/collaborator Stanislavski, that he fled the theatre during opening night performances because his plays were being mischaracterized so severely. Yes, there are serious points to be made, and it is also a drama, but the disappointment in life onstage is humorous so long as you aren’t living it. —Walt Jones


THEATRE PERFORMANCES | FALL 2017

Love and Information by Caryl Churchill Directed by Laura Jones November 10, 16, 17, 7:30 p.m. November 11, 1 p.m., November 12, 2 p.m. November 18, 8 p.m. Studio Theatre, UCA Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information is a kaleidoscopic play, composed of 57 vignettes, featuring 14 actors who play more than 100 characters, occupying a concentrated two (uninterrupted) hours of stage time. As a whole, these self-contained parts compel us to think about our daily struggles to connect with and understand each other. Addressing contemporary issues about knowledge, technology and communication, this exhilarating experimental theatre production explores our capacity for love in our age of the splintered attention span. Each audience member will be challenged to develop his/her predictably similar yet different version of what this defiantly nonlinear mash-up of a show is really about. I so admire playwright Caryl Churchill’s ability to meld content and structure in unique twists and turns. Highly entertaining, I also find the play thought-provoking and emotionally moving in its examination of our society in which information bombardment is in danger of leading to atrophy of memory, erosion of privacy, and decay of feeling. —Laura Jones 27


SPRING 2018 | THEATRE PERFORMANCES

Appropriate by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins Directed by Garrett Ayers February 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 7:30 p.m. February 18, 25, 2 p.m. University Theatre, UCA Every estranged member of the Lafayette clan has descended upon the crumbling Arkansas homestead to settle the accounts of the newly-dead patriarch. As his three adult children sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, they collide over clutter, debt, and a contentious family history. But after a disturbing discovery surfaces among their father's possessions, the reunion takes a turn, unleashing a series of crackling surprises and confrontations. Winner of the 2014–2015 Obie Award for Best New American Play. "…prodigiously gifted… [Jacobs-Jenkins] effortlessly and believably taps into a white family's dysfunction, infuses the script with unforced, viperish humor…APPROPRIATE is an uncommonly deft dramatic and technical achievement." —Entertainment Weekly

Urinetown, The Musical by Greg Kotis Guest Director TBD April 27, 28, May 3, 4, 5, 7:30 p.m. April 29, May 6, 2 p.m. University Theatre, UCA A sidesplitting sendup of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. From New York City's Fringe Festival to Broadway hit, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the "comedic romp" into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter. Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards. 29

MUSEUM EXHIBITIONS AND EVENTS | GREGORY ALLICAR MUSEUM OF ART FALL 2017

Highlights from the African Collection African Gallery With a creative diversity spanning over 50 countries and thousands of cultures, the arts of the African continent offer a window into unique local contexts and stylistic conventions. Such works of art promote the identity  of the artists and cultures from which they originate, and highlight the visual differences found from one region to the next. Survivance: Native North American Arts from the Past and Present Native American Gallery The Anishnaabe cultural theorist Gerald Vizenor coined the term “survivance” to assert  an “active sense of presence and the continuance of native stories” in a world that has  suppressed Indigenous cultures. Vizenor’s purposefully ambiguous term has come to  represent the work of Native cultures to survive and to resist centuries of colonization, disease, and the suppression of their languages and values. This exhibit is curated by  undergraduate students in Art 317: Native North American Art, and highlights the role of art  in the survivance of Native North American cultures.

Cover Up! September 1 – December 15 During the 19th century, home weavers produced a wide variety of domestic textiles such as clothing, undergarments, towels, and bed furnishings. The most common woven textile used as a bed covering was the coverlet. A uniquely American form of craft that developed in the early United States, coverlets document the evolution of textile technology and are now prized as art. Cover Up! presents a selection of coverlets from the Avenir's permanent collection that illustrates the three principal weave styles produced in the 19th century: overshot, double cloth, and jacquard. 42

THURSDAY EVENING LECTURE SERIES 7 p.m., Avenir Museum, Classroom 157, 216 East Lake Street FREE and open to the public / Our galleries stay open from 5–7 p.m. on lecture evenings Our Fall 2017 evening lectures highlight the wide-range of the Avenir’s current exhibitions. Join us for this intriguing array of textile topics! September 14 - Meet New Curator Katie Knowles, Ph.D. We welcome Curator Katie Knowles, Ph.D. to CSU and the Avenir Museum! Join us to meet her and to hear her talk about Expressions of Self and Belonging: Enslaved People and RaceBased Fashion in the United States. Based on years of extensive research, Dr. Knowles will discuss how clothing and textiles reveal a colorful and diverse group of sources that complicate perceptions of slave clothing as monotone and uniform. In particular, she examines two aprons, a skirt, a handkerchief, and a dress — all of which survived into the twenty-first century and are now in museum collections across the U.S., and which speak volumes to us about the value placed in them as special documents of the lived experience of American slavery. October 12 - Fashioned by Faculty: Creative Scholarship Carol Engel-Enright, Kevin Kissell, Anna Perry, and Diane Sparks are the CSU design faculty in the Department of Design and Merchandising, whose exquisite creative work is on view in the current exhibition Fashioned by Faculty: Creative Scholarship, celebrating the full spectrum of art and design. Join us for an informal evening as the faculty designers discuss their work, which may incorporate digital design technologies as well as traditional manual techniques for creating and manipulating textiles and garments. Each faculty member has a unique aesthetic approach that results in eclectic and extravagant display of color, texture, and surface embellishment on fabric. Come see why we are so proud! November 16 - The Allure of the Moroccan Caftan Marcella Wells, Ph.D. presents a fascinating behind-thescenes glimpse into her vision and development of the current exhibition The Allure of the Moroccan Caftan — how does one distill centuries of North African textile heritage and cultural apparel evolution, consider the influence of shifting political sands, incorporate twentieth century French couturier Yves Saint Laurent, proofread Arabic... all to tell the short story of the Moroccan caftan in 600 feet of exhibition space? In collaboration with Moroccan traveler and caftan collector Mary Biggers, Dr. Wells integrated her past travels to Morocco and her experience as an exhibit developer to guest curate this exhibition. Join us as Dr. Wells discusses what she learned along the way… and try on a caftan while you're here!
