The Bloomington Early Music Festival (BLEMF) and the Historical Performance Institute (HPI) at IU’s Jacobs School of Music are teaming up with Early Music America (EMA) for more than a week of free events. The spotlight will fall on numerous renowned performers from around the world and close to home, including fortepianist Robert Levin; Les Ordinaires; harpsichordists Melisande McNabney and Jory Vinikour; soprano Adriana Ruiz; violinist Rachel Wong; the Bloomington Bach Cantata Project; the Costanoan Trio; the Festival Sacred Music Project; Rumore Terribile; and the always unpredictable and fun project, HPI Goes POP!. The Festival also will include two performances of EMA Emerging Artists from across North America, as well as the EMA Young Performers Festival – five concerts in three days that survey the best that American collegiate early music programs have to offer. In addition, there will be a salute to the City of Bloomington’s bicentennial with a starstudded performance by local old-time musicians and dancers, a project led by folk performer Grey Larsen – as well as a hands-on workshop exploring the legacy of the late local fiddler Joe Dawson.

Michael Burawoy Michael Burawoy is a sociologist and professor at The University of California – Berkeley who has been a participant observer of industrial workplaces in four countries: Zambia, United States, Hungary and Russia. In his different projects he has tried to illuminate – from the standpoint of the working class – postcolonialism, the organization of consent to capitalism, the peculiar forms of class consciousness and work organization in state socialism, and, finally, the dilemmas of transition from socialism to capitalism. Richard Ross Richard Ross is a photographer, researcher and professor of art based in Santa Barbara, California. Ross has been the recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Annie E. Casey and MacArthur Foundations. Ross was awarded both Fulbright and Guggenheim Fellowships. His most recent work, the “– In Justice” series, turns a lens on the placement and treatment of American juveniles housed by law in facilities that treat, confine, punish, assist and, occasionally, harm them. David Weaver and Cleve Wilhoit Professor David Weaver was on the faculty of the IU School of Journalism for 37 years, teaching mainly research methods and political communication to graduate students. In earlier years, he taught newswriting, newspaper editing, and public opinion to undergraduates.

1 Tuesday 8:00 PM ETHER GAME Musical Metropolis: Paris All this month, the Ether Game Brain Trust is exploring different musical metropolises. To kick things off, we’ll take a stroll along the Seine to explore the music of the City of Lights: Paris! 10:00 PM RELEVANT TONES Composer Spotlight: Alvin Singleton Critic Kyle Gann says “Singleton’s music is soulful, with an understated simplicity that I particularly prize. Despite the studied economy of his means and the set character of his images, the music is never cold … nor abstract. It glows with warmth.” We’ll feature Singleton’s music on this Composer Spotlight.

8:00 PM SYMPHONYCAST Houston Symphony Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor Mojca Erdmann, soprano Nicholas Brownlee, bass-baritone Houston Symphony Chorus DVORAK: Te Deum MAHLER: Symphony No. 4

1:00 PM METROPOLITAN OPERA GOUNOD – Romeo and Juliet Bartlett Sher’s production of Gounod’s sumptuous Shakespeare adaptation was a hit of the 2016–17 Met season (“a revelation” declared the Huffington Post). Now the sweeping tragedy returns with Ailyn Pérez and Bryan Hymel, both celebrated in French repertoire, as the star crossed young lovers. Plácido Domingo conducts.

3 Thursday 8:00 PM CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY OF LINCOLN CENTER End of Time Messiaen: Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet for the End of Time) for Clarinet, Violin, Cello, and Piano Jörg Widmann, Clarinet; Nicolas Dautricourt, Violin; Nicolas Altstaedt, Cello; Gilles Vonsattel, Piano 9:00 PM HARMONIA Something Borrowed, Something New They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. This week, we’ll explore composers who borrow – from each other and themselves – to create something brilliantly new and yet familiar. We’ll cut across the ages, exploring the Faenza Codex, Handel oratorio, and perhaps the most accomplished borrower of all time – Johann Sebastian Bach. 10:00 PM FIESTA! Blas Galindo: Famous Unknown Just as Joaquín Rodrigo’s music has been overshadowed by the extraordinary success of Concerto de Aranjuez, the composer Blas Galindo has experienced the same fate because of his Sones de Mariachi. This program focuses on the monumental work of Galindo as a symphonic composer as well as the author of some delicate and delightful chamber pieces.

4 Friday 8:00 PM AFTERGLOW I Love Lucys: Lucy Ann Polk and Lucy Reed This week on the program, we explore the songs of two little-remembered jazz singers: Lucy Ann Polk and Lucy Reed. Both Lucys got their start singing in big bands in the late ’40s/early ’50s, and developed their own, unique ballad styles in the late 1950s. 9:00 PM NIGHT LIGHTS Put On Earth To Play Drums: Buddy Rich A celebration of the iconic drummer, featuring the music of his big bands and small groups, as well as some of his vocal recordings and excerpts from a 1969 interview.

Royal Wedding Watch May 14-19

Leading up to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, PBS presents a 5-part series that goes behind the headlines to unpack the history, ceremony, and traditions shaping this most modern of Royal romances. Coverage of the wedding ceremony begins at 7 a.m. on Saturday, May 19.

Giving Life Insurance to Charitable Causes Life insurance can be a tool with many purposes. When your children were young, you may have purchased a policy to provide them with financial protection in case something should happen to you or your spouse. Perhaps your circumstances have now changed. Many donors own whole life insurance policies they no longer need for family security. If so, consider one of the most satisfying uses for life insurance you no longer need—donating it to a cause dear to your heart, such as WFIU.

Page 10 / May 2018

Episode One A Wedding is Announced Monday, May 14 at 10 p.m.

Episode Four How to Celebrate Thursday, May 17 at 10 p.m.

Learn more about the bride and groom, and get the latest news from Windsor, where all the wedding preparations are under way.

Historian Lucy Worsley heads to Hampton Court Palace to discover the secrets behind a State banquet while, back in the London studio, experts and commentators talk about everything from the carriage procession to the cake.

Episode Two What to Wear Tuesday, May 15 at 10 p.m. As speculation grows about what Meghan is wearing, historian Lucy Worsley steps into the archive to look at the dresses chosen by previous Royal brides. Episode Three Ceremony Wednesday, May 16 at 10 p.m.

Episode Five Happily Ever After Friday, May 18 at 10:30 p.m. On the eve of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it's all the latest news from the very heart of London.

Explore the ceremony and traditions at the heart of a Royal Wedding. When you choose to name a charitable organization as the policy owner and beneficiary, you may qualify for an income tax charitable deduction. Here is an example: John purchased a whole life insurance policy to provide his family financial security in the event of his passing. John’s children are now successful young adults who are doing quite well. John decides to name the IU Foundation—for the benefit of WFIU—as owner and beneficiary of his whole life insurance policy to create a named endowment to support news on WFIU after he passes. John receives a charitable income tax deduction for doing so that can be carried forward for 5 years. To complete your future gift, contact your insurance company and request their beneficiary designation form. It is entirely

separate from your will and does not require a lawyer. Not only is it an easy way to give, but its flexible — you can review and adjust beneficiary designations and percentages anytime. That being said, it is always wise to consult a trusted advisor. For more information on making a beneficiary designation gift contact the IU Foundation Office of Gift Planning at call (800) 558-8311 with any questions about gift opportunities at WFIU.

A Gift Anyone Can Afford? Did you realize there are ways to support WFIU that do not affect your lifestyle or jeopardize your family’s security? Consider including WFIU in your will. Simply provide your attorney with the following: “I give, devise, and bequeath [the sum of/a percentage of/or the residue of my estate] to the Indiana University Foundation, a nonprofit Indiana corporation with principal offices in Bloomington, Indiana, for the benefit and unrestricted support of WFIU, Indiana University, Bloomington campus.”
