NORTH CENTR AL COLLEGE 2010 -2011 FINE AND PERFOR MING ARTS
There are moments in all of our lives that are extra special: a twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, a first-born getting married, that special job that you have been hoping for. These are memories that last forever. We invite you to join us in one of those moments as North Central College begins the celebration of one of those extra special moments. This season, we are celebrating the sesquicentennial of North Central College. . . 150 years of fulfilling our mission to be “a community of learners dedicated to preparing students to be informed, involved, principled and productive citizens and leaders over a lifetime.” As “Naperville’s college” we are honored to present some of the world’s finest artists in our world-class venues. In preparation for our celebration which will officially begin in 2011, we are revving up with the greatest symphony orchestra in the world, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, on October 21. Two years ago, only 605 people were privileged enough to experience this magnificent institution in the acoustically perfect environment of the Wentz Concert Hall. This is your chance to be a part of something truly great. Don’t miss out! But wait, there’s more. Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons are sold out for two performances, another once in a life time event. We are bringing you two different performances by the gifted Rachel Barton Pine, one in her traditional performance as violin virtuoso, one with her heavy metal band, Earthen Grave. Talk about a wide range of abilities! There will be the foot-stomping, handclapping, good old- time fun of Del McCoury and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. (I saw them perform at B. B. Kings in New York. All I can say is hang on!) Neal Conan will provide his narration to “Universe of Dreams” while you view images from the Hubble telescope listening to the sounds of Ensemble Galilei. Oh, and did I mention the Vienna Boy’s Choir will ring the perfect rafters of the Wentz Concert Hall with their pure, glorious tones? And that’s just for starters. Our catch phrase for the sesquicentennial is “150 years: A promising start”. In a way, we are just beginning to present the finest in entertainment to Naperville, to DuPage county, and to this entire region. We are here for you. We are here to bring you someone you have been waiting to see, someone you were unable to see, or perhaps someone you could not afford to see. We are building on the established traditions of the NapervilleNorth Central College Performing Arts Association while opening our doors to a constantly growing audience base. A promising start. We promise that we will continue to listen, to serve, and to provide the finest entertainment available for as many audiences as we can touch. Enjoy the show, and thank you for supporting the arts at North Central College. Brian Lynch Fine Arts Director, North Central College North Central College 1

M O S C OW S TAT E S Y M P H O N Y O R C H E S T R A The MOSCOW STATE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (MSSO) is acclaimed as one of the greatest orchestras from a cultural tradition rich with extraordinary symphonic ensembles. Founded in 1943 by Lev Steinberg, the MSSO quickly established a reputation as one of the premier interpreters of the Russian “classic” composers. Under the subsequent leadership of Nikolai Anosov and Leo Ginzburg, the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra developed relationships with the most prominent Russian Twentieth Century musicians and composers, including many premieres of Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Myaskovsky, and Gliere. The Orchestra also had the distinction of performing under the directorship of the well-known Soviet female conductor, Veronika Dudarova. Since Pavel Kogan assumed the positions of Music Director and Chief Conductor in 1989, the MSSO has steadily expanded its repertoire beyond the classics of Russian and Western symphonic literature to include contemporary compositions from both Russia and abroad. A landmark of the MSSO was to present cycles of “Complete symphonies…” by composers of the 19th and 20th centuries. Many of these cycles were recorded and received the critical praise from both Russian and Western listeners. Among contemporary composers whose music was premiered by the MSSO are Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Andrei Petrov and Georgy Dmitriev. The MSSO also claims rich collaborations with such artists as Evgeny Svetlanov, Kirill Kondrashin, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Emil Gilels, Leonid Kogan, David Oistrakh, and Mstislav Rostropovich. In addition to its regular appearances at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory and performances throughout Russia, the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra has been enthusiastically received throughout the major musical centers of the world. The MSSO has engaged in extensive international touring, visiting over 50 countries under Kogan and performing 20-50 concerts abroad each year, including the most prestigious concert halls of Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Japan, Hong Kong, North Korea, South Korea, Australia, and the United States. The Moscow State Symphony Orchestra also appears regularly at major Russian and European festivals including the Moscow Autumn Festival, the Russian Winter Festival, St. Petersburg’s White Nights, the Moscow Stars Festival, Prague Spring, and festivals in Helsinki, Dubrovnik, Montreaux, Lugano, Locarno, Merano, Munich, Flanders, and Saint-Requier. Having celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2008, the MSSO returns to the United States for a Coast-to-Coast tour in Autumn 2010. For more information about the MSSO please visit www.msso.su.

PAV E L K O G A N Maestro Pavel Kogan’s career has spanned over 40 years and five continents and has led him to becoming one of the most respected and widely known Russian conductors of our time. He was born into a distinguished musical family – his parents are legendary violinists Leonid Kogan and Elizaveta Gilels and his uncle is the inimitable pianist Emil Gilels. From an early age, Maestro Kogan’s artistic development was divided between conducting and violin. He was granted special permission to study both disciplines at the same time which was an extreme rarity in the Soviet Union. In 1970, eighteen-year-old Pavel Kogan, a violin pupil of Yuri Yankelevich at the Moscow Conservatory, won 1st prize in the Sibelius Violin Competition in Helsinki. Thereafter, he appeared regularly as a violinist in concerts around the world. As a conducting pupil of Ilya Musin and Leo Ginsburg in 1972 the young Maestro gave his debut with the USSR State Symphony Orchestra, and subsequently focused more on conducting. In the years that followed, he conducted the leading Soviet Orchestras both at home and on tour abroad at the invitation of Mravinsky, Kondrashin, Svetlanov and Rozhdestvensky. In 1988, as conductor of the Bolshoi Opera, Kogan opened the season with a new production of Verdi’s La Traviata. That same year he became the head of the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra. Since 1989 Pavel Kogan has been the Music Director and Chief Conductor of the eminent Moscow State Symphony Orchestra (MSSO), building it into one of Russia’s most widely known and highly acclaimed orchestras. Maestro has expanded and enriched the orchestras’ repertoire with complete symphonic works of numerous composers such as Brahms, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, R. Strauss, Berlioz, Debussy, Ravel, Mendelssohn, Bruckner, Mahler, Sibelius, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Glazunov, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Scriabin, as well as a large number of contemporary pieces. From 1998-2005 he served as principal guest conductor of the Utah Symphony Orchestra. Maestro Kogan appeared with many prominent orchestras including the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, USSR State Radio & TV Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Orchestre National de Belgique, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, RTVE Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden, Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de México, L’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Orchestre National de France, Houston Symphony, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra. Pavel Kogan has recorded countless works with the MSSO and other ensembles, most notably by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Berlioz, Shostakovich and RimskyKorsakov. Many of his albums have garnered great acclaim from critics and audiences alike. Gramophone called Kogan’s Rachmaninoff cycle (Symphonies 1, 2, 3, Symphonic Dances, “Isle of the Dead,”“Vocalize & Scherzo”) “…sparkly, strongly communicative Rachmaninoff... vibrant, soulful and involving.” Maestro Kogan was awarded the State Prize of the Russian Federation for his performance of the complete symphonies and vocal cycles of Gustav Mahler. He is a member of the Russian Academy of Arts and recipient of the “Order of Merit” of Russia and of the title “Peoples’ Artist of Russia” among other Russian and overseas awards. 6 North Central College
JEREMY DENK-PIANIST “Mr. Denk, clearly, is a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination — both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing. “ – The New York Times American pianist Jeremy Denk has steadily built a reputation as one of today’s most compelling and persuasive artists with an unusually broad repertoire. He has appeared as soloist with many major orchestras, including the Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, New World, St. Louis, and San Francisco Symphonies, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and London Philharmonia. Last season he played concertos by Beethoven, Copland, Mozart, Schumann, and Stravinsky, whose Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments he performed under the direction of John Adams, first with the London Symphony Orchestra in London and Paris, and then as part of Carnegie Hall’s City Noir. He appears often in recital in New York, Washington, Boston, and Philadelphia. During the 2010-11 season Denk releases his first solo recording, Jeremy Denk Plays Ives, on which he plays Charles Ives’s Piano Sonatas 1 & 2 (“Concord”). He also returns to Carnegie Hall for his second solo recital, in works by Ligeti and Bach, and a concerto appearance, featuring Liszt’s First with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Charles Dutoit, after performances together in Philadelphia. Further concerto engagements include a U.S. tour with the Moscow State Symphony under Pavel Kogan, and Mozart’s “Elvira Madigan” concerto with Peter Oundjian and the Detroit Symphony. Denk maintains working relationships with a number of living composers and has participated in many premieres, including Jake Heggie’s concerto Cut Time, Libby Larsen’s Collage: Boogie, Kevin Putz’s Alternating Current, and Ned Rorem’s The Unquestioned Answer. In 2002, he recorded Tobias Picker’s Second Piano Concerto with the Moscow Philharmonic. He also worked closely with composer Leon Kirchner on many of his recent compositions, recording his Sonata No. 2 in 2001. Jeremy Denk is an avid chamber musician. He has collaborated with many of the world’s finest string quartets, has appeared at the Italian and American Spoleto Festivals, the Santa Fe and Seattle Chamber Music Festivals, the Verbier and Mostly Mozart Festivals, and the Bravo!-Vail Valley and Bard Music Festivals. He has spent several summers at the Marlboro Music School and Festival in Vermont and been part of “Musicians from Marlboro” national tours. He regularly collaborates with cellist Stephen Isserlis at New York’s 92nd Street Y, and gives numerous lectures and master classes. partnership, with no upstaging.” They recorded Corigliano’s Violin Sonata for Sony Classical and tour together regularly. The artist’s widely-read blog,“Think Denk”, is highly praised and frequently referenced by many in the music press and industry. There Denk writes about some of his touring, practicing, and otherwise unrelated experiences, as well as delving into fairly detailed musical analyses and essays. Alex Ross, the music critic of the New Yorker, described the pianist as “a superb musician who writes with arresting sensitivity and wit. … This is a voice that, effectively, could never have been heard before the advent of the Internet: sophisticated on the one hand, informal on the other, immediate in impact. Blogs such as this put a human face on an alien culture.”
North Central College 7
J E R E M Y D E N K - P I A N S T ( c o n t .) The New York Times describes Denk’s playing as “bracing, effortlessly virtuosic, and utterly joyous,” and reviewers frequently comment on the freshness and originality of his musical interpretations (as well as in his blog). “Mr. Denk is the ideal interpreter for music that defies easy classification,” wrote the Richmond Times; the New York Sun called his “Waldstein” Sonata “a radical take on a revolutionary work”; and the Washington Post referred to his “brilliant playing at the edge of Schumann’s sanity.” After graduating from Oberlin College and Conservatory in piano and chemistry, Denk earned a master’s degree in music from Indiana University as a pupil of György Sebök, and a doctorate in piano performance from the Juilliard School, where he worked with Herbert Stessin. He lives in New York City. Denk’s web site and blog are at jeremydenk.net.

C R I T I C A L AC C L A I M 2001 U.S. Tour “The orchestra [The Moscow State Symphony] has a dark, burnished sound that Music Director Pavel Kogan exploited to the fullest extent in Shostakovich’s “Symphony No. 10,” which concluded the evening. Most exceptional was a violin section that produced a deep, rich sound on the lower strings. This played perfectly to the generally somber mood of this long work.” - Telegram&Gazette “Tchaikovsky’s music is always an emotional roller coaster ride, and the orchestra, under its longtime conductor, Pavel Kogan was up to every nuance from the almost imperceptible quiet passages to the fullest, overwhelming climaxes…The articulation was immaculate and the inner voices were always apparent under Kogan’s sure hand. The sound was controlled but intense and energetic, moving the listener along from one emotional mountain to the next.” -The Daily News “Russian orchestras are known for their brashness, clipped phrasing and ear-popping declamations, and there was no scarcity of those qualities at this concert… More than any conductor in memory, Kogan looks like the music he conducts. With this group’s discipline and size, it’s easy for him to sculpt and shape in any way he chooses, and he does so tastefully and with digital precision.” -The Birmingham News “The 10th’s initial somber, ominous tones resonated through the massive string section, evolving alternately into some rather starkly dissonant passages relieved by moments of a refined but not completely comfortable lyricism. The orchestra [The Moscow State Symphony] easily recognized the composer’s interest in the work of Mahler with its robust approach to the larger than life personality within the work…Conductor Pavel Kogan maintained a close watch on the development of the melodic fragments in the woodwinds, leaning forward and gracefully guiding both the seasoned and the younger musicians in the multigenerational orchestra through the 50-minute work. Though the juxtaposition can be jarring, the final movement’s sudden, almost giddy, change of attitude was handled with a great deal of spirit, tempered by a dignified forthrightness that characterized the program’s other major piece as well.” -Portland Press Herald “A Russian orchestra playing an all-Russian program is a grand tradition that audiences never tire of, judging from the enthusiastic reaction to Start: Symphony Orchestra at Ruth Eckerd Hall.” -Saint Petersburg Times About Pavel Kogan “Kogan inspired generous response from the orchestra [The Utah Symphony]. Emotional impact was achieved with well-blended tone, flexible tempos and his ability to exact a wide dynamic range from the musicians.” -The Utah Tribune “Kogan gave a wondrous performance of the Scriabin symphony. The work overflows with a restless energy that the conductor captured magnificently.” -Desert Morning News

In the Seventh Century, A.D., Jiangzhou was the home of the Emperor Li Shimin of the Tang Dynasty (618 A.D. – 907 A.D.). Li Shimin has also been called Tang Taizong in many historical records, and his renown comes, in part, from the impressive precision of his celebrated drum and percussion orchestra. Part of the legend of Emperor Li Shimin lives on in performances by JIGU! Thunder Drums Of China. In fact, one of the musical vignettes in our program tells part of the Emperor Li Shimin’s story. Some of the earliest archaeological evidence of Chinese drums and percussion music has been unearthed in the Shanxi region of China. Chinese drumming and percussion music is generally placed in one of two categories. The Yuchui, (pronounced “Yu-Shwee”) or drum and wind style, is mainly performed at weddings and funerals to bring good fortune or peace to those being honored. The Saishe, (pronounced “Sigh-Sheh”) or festival style of performance, was performed by villagers praying for prosperous weather and rich harvests. JIGU! Thunder Drums of China’s repertoire embraces both of these styles, the more formal and traditional, as well as the more joyful, light-hearted style found in daily life. North Central College 21
P R O G R A M N O T E S ( c o n t .) China has a long and rich theatrical history, dating back many centuries to the Shang dynasty (1766 B.C. - 1050 B.C.). In this period, “seers” performed ceremonial songs and dances to honor the gods, invoking them to drive out pestilence; cause crops to be abundant; or create other “miracles” in nature. By the time of the Han dynasty, beginning around 206 B.C., court entertainments were very popular. Clowns, wrestlers, acrobats, singers, and musicians entertained emperors and their attendants by acting out mythical stories and famous fables. These entertainments were the precursors of Peking Opera, which is a multifaceted art form, and is very unlike Western Opera. Peking Opera combines singing, dancing, acrobatics, martial arts, pantomime, highly stylized acting, costume, make-up, and more to create fantastic stage productions. The fundamental belief of Chinese theatre-goers is that theatre, at best, should be an illusion of life. Good Chinese theatre, therefore, must show the real struggle of humans to succeed and survive as well as display the trials and joys of living. The percussion section is among the most important aspects of Chinese opera. The artists of JIGU! Thunder Drums of China takes part in the aforementioned philosophies of Peking Opera and expresses it through percussive style. In China, being selected to become a member of JIGU! Thunder Drums of China, is an honor, and brings with it a great deal of prestige and the possibility of travel for the artists. Imagine being chosen to be part of a professional music troupe from China and traveling the world! While on tour, the artists will see many corners of the globe and will meet new and different people. The musicians are representatives of their country and their art, and they take great pride in being selected to perform for audiences worldwide. So, prepare to be transported to another realm as you experience the joyful, thunderous roar of JIGU! Thunder Drums of China!

NORTH CENTRAL COLLEGE Presents
Cirque Mechanics “Boom Town”
Friday, November 19, 2010 8:00 p.m. Presented at Pfeiffer Hall 310 E. Benton Avenue, Naperville, Illinois www.northcentralcollege.edu/show 2010 – 2011 Fine Arts Performances Sponsors
24 North Central College
C I R Q U E M E C H A N I C S “ B O O M TOW N ” Be transported to the 1860s small frontier town of Rosebud, where two ambitious saloon owners have set up shop in the hopes of cashing in on the town’s gold rush frenzy. The circus that ensues when they begin to feud for the townsfolk patronage leads to a series of explosive events, exciting brawls, an unexpected romance and a lucrative discovery. Once again, as with their previous production “Birdhouse Factory,” Cirque Mechanics explores the relationship between man and machine. Inspired by early mining equipment and the spirit of adventure that brought prospectors and entrepreneurs alike out west searching for gold, “Boom Town” features innovative and one-of-a-kind mechanical apparatus that serve both as scenery and performance prop. You will find performers climbing up swaying telegraph poles, dancing on a swinging chandelier, flying high and fast on a revolving crane, flipping and jumping on moving ore carts or balancing on whiskey jugs. “Boom Town” takes you beyond the town and deep into the mine to join in the excitement of exploration and experience the thrill of discovery. You’ll be inspired to pick up your picks and pans, hop in an ore cart and come along for the ride! Cirque Mechanics “Boom Town” is brought to life thanks to the vision and dedication of its creative team, Director Chris Lashua, Assistant Director/Choreographer Aloysia Gavre and Writer/Performer Steven Ragatz, veterans of the world-renowned Cirque du Soleil and the creative team behind Cirque Mechanics’ critically acclaimed “Birdhouse Factory.” PL AY WRIGHT’S NOTE “Boom Town” was originally presented by the Broadway Center for the Arts in Tacoma, Wash. The show, directed by Chris Lashua, was based on an original concept and material by Chris Lashua and was co-directed by Aloysia Gavre. SPECIAL THANKS Aida and our three sons, Zion, Quinn and Lago, for their unconditional love and support, their encouragement and for adopting my love of machines and exploration. For their never-ending act ideas, narrative and plot discussions. And for making me feel like I’ve found my golden nugget everyday. To dad and mom for making me believe anything IS possible. Our cast and crew for their tireless efforts, incredible imagination and collaborative spirit. Armand Thomas (my consigliere) for his continuing support of me, my family and our project, Gilles Ste-Croix for discovering my potential and encouraging me through the years, Christine Barkley at APA for taking a chance on a small circus company without a brand and giving us the opportunity to tour “Birdhouse Factory” and build an audience for our newest production, “Boom Town,” Bo Bogatin for keeping us honest and legal, Andy Espo for his friendship, clear head and objectivity, Ryan Niemi at Sunset Dynamics for making the crane a reality, Brian Schuette and the boys at United Machine for fabricating and creating, and trusting me with their equipment. Thayr Harris for being our social network guru. Our friends and family at Cirque du Soleil for continuing to set the bar higher. It is my life’s thrill to get to “build a circus with my friends and call it work.” The time spent creating this show was an invigorating, challenging and at times a frightening journey. The days were long, but encouraging, uplifting and exhausting. But most of all, they were a blast. I hope you get half as much enjoyment watching as we had in creating – thanks for coming! North Central College 25
T H E C R E AT I V E T E A M Chris Lashua (Director) Chris Lashua has spent his life on or around wheels. After nearly a decade of professional bicycle freestyle competitions and performance, he found himself at China’s famed “Wu Ciao” festival in 1992, where he won a bronze medal and a place on Cirque du Soleil’s Japan tour of “Fascination.” Chris’ obsession with wheels led him to perform inside one, a German Wheel and as the opening act of Cirque du Soleil’s “Quidam” in 1996. During the six years Chris toured with “Quidam,” he began work on a mechanical contraption he called the “trolley” which allowed him to roll in place and be able to perform his act in a smaller space. The trolley was the start of an idea to build other machines that would interact with circus acrobatics. He decided early on that the place to showcase these machines would be a factory floor, a place Chris called “Birdhouse Factory.” It is Chris’ belief that innovative mechanical apparatus and the relationship between performer and machine sets his company apart and is at the heart of what makes Cirque Mechanics unique. His mechanical mind, needing a new challenge, started conceptualizing a system of trampoline carts on a track, a series of connected poles, an oversized lifting crane. It was the adventurous spirit of the Gold Rush prospectors, the perseverance of the miners and the excitement of discovery that led Lashua to “Boom Town.” Aloysia Gavre (Co-Director/ Choreographer) An original co-director and choreographer of “Birdhouse Factory” and an early member of the San Francisco- based Pickle Family Circus, Aloysia has been a movement, dance and circus enthusiast most of her life. She has studied with Pilobolus, The Tandy Beal Dance Company and Zacho Dance Theater and perfected her circus abilities with Master Lu-Yi

Aloysia was a featured act in Cirque du Soleil’s “O” in Las Vegas and “Quidam” where she performed the aerial hoop act that earned the troupe a special prize at the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival in 2002. Aloysia ia also co-founder of Cirque School L.A., a place for “anybody with any body” to explore the circus arts www.cirqueschoolla.com Steven Ragatz (Writer/Artist) An original “Birdhouse Factory” cast member and collaborator, Steven Ragatz has been entertaining audiences with his juggling, physical comedy, stilt walking and general antics for the past three decades.

NORTH CENTRAL COLLEGE Jazz Series Presents
Ramsey Lewis Trio
Saturday, November 20, 2010 8:00 p.m. Presented at Wentz Concert Hall 171 E. Chicago Avenue, Naperville, Illinois www.northcentralcollege.edu/show 2010 â€“ 2011 Fine Arts Performances Sponsors
32 North Central College
BIOGR APHIES Ramsey Lewis Composer, pianist and jazz legend Ramsey Lewis has been referred to as “the great performer,” a title reflecting his performance style and musical selections which display his early gospel playing and classical training along with his love of jazz and other musical forms. A native Chicagoan (born May 27, 1935), Mr. Lewis represents the great diversity of music for which Chicago is noted. Ramsey Lewis first captivated fans with his first album “Ramsey Lewis And The Gentlemen of Swing” by the Ramsey Lewis Trio in 1956. By 1965, he was one of the nation’s most successful jazz pianists, topping the charts with “The In Crowd,” “Hang On Sloopy” and “Wade In The Water.” He has three Grammy Awards and seven gold records to his credit. Often called legendary, Mr. Lewis concedes “It’s a high honor when someone says so, but I don’t see myself that way. What keeps me enthusiastic and energizes me, is the realization that the more I learn, the more I find there is to know.” His most recent industry award was the 2006 Stellar Award for Best Gospel Instrumental Album, “With One Voice” presented in January 2007. He was also the recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award in January 2007. Mr. Lewis has received four (4) honorary doctorate degrees and numerous other accolades. Ramsey Lewis began taking piano lessons at the age of four, studying the basics and fundamentals. But, “It wasn’t until I started studying with the late Dorothy Mendelsohn that I responded to some of the startling things she was teaching me, such as ‘Listen with your inner ear,’ and ‘Make the piano sing.’ These concepts were revelations!” Soon after, he began learning Bach, Beethoven, Hadyn, Brahms and Chopin, and other basic piano repertoire for the concert pianist.
Except for records his father played around the house, Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Mead Lux Lewis and others, Mr. Lewis had no experience playing jazz. He was 15 when a fellow church musician, Wallace Burton, asked him to join his jazz band and took the time to coach and help the young musician learn the language of jazz. It was a brand new experience for him. The seven-piece group called themselves “The Cleffs” and provided Mr. Lewis’ first real involvement with the great music of jazz. The emerging Ramsey Lewis Trio had its roots as the rhythm section (comprised of Mr. Lewis on piano, Eldee Young on bass and Redd Holt on drums) and remained after the other members of the Cleffs went off to the Korean war. “Jazz soon became a major force in my musical life, but European classical and gospel music were of almost equal importance,” he recalls. In addition to recording albums and performing live, Mr. Lewis hosted WNUA-FM Chicago’s weekday morning drive-time radio show, “The Ramsey Lewis Morning Show,” from 1997-2009 for which he was awarded R&R’s (Radio&Records) 1999 and 2000 Personality of the Year Award. The syndicated “Ramsey Lewis Morning Show” ran from 2007-2009 nationwide. He also continues to host the syndicated “Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis,” radio program that airs in over 75 cities throughout the U.S. Active in community efforts, especially on behalf of youth, he helped organize the Ravinia Festival’s Jazz Mentor Program and also serves as the Artistic Director for that festival’s jazz series. In January of 2007, the Dave Brubeck Institute invited Mr. Lewis to be on the Honorary Board of Friends of the Brubeck Institute at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. He also serves on the Board of Trustees for the Merit School of Music, an inner city music program in downtown Chicago and is a North Central College 33
B I O G R A P H I E S ( c o n t .) member of Loyola University (Chicago) Council of Regents. Early 2005 saw the formation of the Ramsey Lewis Foundation, a rogram designed to help provide scholarship opportunities to youth as they move through high school and on to college. Unfortunately, due to a health related issue in 2008, Mr. Lewis has had to suspend this program indefinitely. In 2003, Mr. Lewis along with Larry Rosen (founder and former president of GRP Records) and Lee Rosenberg formed LRSmedia, an independent music entertainment company that created and produced branded entertainment properties for distribution across broadcast, live and recorded media. LRSmedia co-produced, along with PBS television station WTTW-Chicago in April 2006, a series of 13 one-half hour television programs called “Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis” making it the first time in forty years that jazz had enjoyed television coverage. The program not only featured the legends of this great music, but also the young and upcoming stars as well. Mr. Lewis, along with Mr. Rosen and Mr. Rosenberg were coexecutive producers of the series. Beginning in 2005, Mr. Lewis began seriously composing large-scale musical works. The first was an eight-movement work for jazz trio and ballet in collaboration with the Joffrey Ballet and
choreographed by Donald Byrd. The world premiere of “To Know Her . . .” was performed at Ravinia Festival in June of 2007. The second was an eight-movement work for jazz trio and string quartet entitled “Muses and Amusements”. This world premiere with the Turtle Island Quartet was also performed at Ravinia Festival in June of 2008. And the latest work was a multimedia tribute to Abraham Lincoln on the 200th anniversary of his birth. This eight-movement work entitled “Proclamation of Hope: A Symphonic Poem by Ramsey Lewis” was world premiered once again at Ravinia Festival in June of 2009 and consisted of Mr. Lewis performing with his trio and twenty-one other musicians on stage enhanced with visuals on giant screens and a historical description in the program conveying what each movement represented. Scott Hall arranged the music and conducted, Michael Coakes created the visuals, Guthrie Ramsey wrote the historical descriptions and Jan Lewis was senior advisor/coordinator. Mr. Lewis continues to perform in the U.S. and abroad with his trio, Larry Gray on bass and Leon Joyce on drums. His latest album “Songs from the Heart: Ramsey Plays Ramsey” is on Concord Records (9/09).

January 21-February 20, 2011 In Its Flow – New Paintings and Drawings of Amazônia The work transcribes a memory of objects and impressions captured during repeated sojourns to the Amazon River Basin. These impressions are a memory of the river bound on both sides by a high, dark jungle; foreboding and beautiful. When the jungle takes you in, it takes you in whole.
