DEAR STUDENTS, ALUMNI, PARENTS, AND FRIENDS, It is my pleasure to re-introduce myself to you. As a faculty member in the College of Music and Fine Arts since 1975 and the former associate dean of the college from 1990 to 2013, it is now my honor to serve as the dean of the Loyola University New Orleans College of Music and Fine Arts. Over the years, I have seen firsthand how Loyola’s College of Music and Fine Arts has become the beacon for the arts in the region. Indeed, Loyola has the distinction of being the only Jesuit university with a college of music and fine arts. The faculty, students, and staff of the college wear this honor with pride and with the understanding of what it takes to continue to be a distinguished member of this community. And the outstanding tradition continues. The College of Music and Fine Arts is pleased to present another exciting year in the arts through our Montage Series. This year’s lineup of musical events starts with a collaboration with the university’s Biever Lecture Series to bring to you “An Evening of Improvised Music” with Ken Vandermark, Alvin Fielder, James Singleton, and Loyola professor Jeff Albert. For lovers of keyboard music, our keyboard masterclass series continues with masterclasses and recitals by outstanding pianists from around the world, including School of Music faculty member and award-winning performer Brian Hsu. This season’s opera department renderings are two of Puccini’s one-act works, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi. Our musical offerings continue with a performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah featuring our newest faculty member in the voice department, Luretta Bybee, and School of Music alumnus Alfred Walker ’96. Our Department of Theatre Arts and Dance opens its season with Samuel Beckett’s tragic comedy Endgame, followed by the Kander and Ebb musical The World Goes ‘Round. The department will conclude its season with the timeless story of Alice in Wonderland. As usual, the dance department will stage two performances at the end of the fall semester and spring semester. Also in store for dance, the Valentina Kozlova International Ballet Competition Semifinals will be held on our campus in February and March. The Department of Art and Design kicks off its season with the works of alumni Peter Barnitz ’04 and Tasheka Arceneaux-Sutton ’02. Loyola is very fortunate to archive Frére Joseph-Aurélien Cornet’s collection of art of the Congo. The Cornet Collection’s lecture series continues in the month of October. These are but a few of the exciting and stimulating events scheduled in Montage for 2014 – 2015. We could not continue this important work in the arts without the blessing of our very generous and dedicated donors. In recent years, these individuals have supported us with scholarships for outstanding artists, equipment such as pianos, and the construction of Monroe Hall. Our Visiting Committee has shared our vision and helped us to focus that vision. We are proud and thankful. Once again, we invite you to come and experience Loyola! Best wishes,

Anthony DeCuir ’76, Ph.D., Dean, College of Music and Fine Arts Charles E. Braswell Distinguished Professor of Music Therapy

STUDENTS DRAW, PAINT, BUILD, AND CREATE IN NEWLY RENOVATED DESIGN STUDIOS Creative juices are flowing now more than ever as the College of Music and Fine Arts is unveiling a new Bachelor of Design professional degree program— the only one of its kind in New Orleans—beginning in fall 2014. The new program in the Department of Design is coupled with newly renovated design facilities located in Monroe Hall. The new spaces feature three design studios, two elements studios, and two teaching computer labs with state-of-the-art projection and surround sound systems. The renovations also boast improved classrooms, a screen printing room, a darkroom, and a digital printing and equipment lab. An “Inspiration Wall” in one of the main corridors acts as an exhibit of photos, quotes, and drawings from the students’ favorite designers and artists. “Each student will be assigned a dedicated studio space where they will work for the entire year, providing them an undisturbed, consistent area to draw, paint, build, and create,” associate professor of graphic design Daniela Marx said. The new design facilities are part of Loyola’s overall Monroe Hall renovation, which began in 2012. The completion of the interior construction of the building—set for December 2014—will result in a complete transformation of teaching facilities, creative spaces, and science laboratories, including a new rooftop greenhouse.

INTERNATIONAL OPERA STAR AND EDUCATOR LURETTA BYBEE JOINS LOYOLA An international opera star is now molding a new generation of opera singers as a music professor at the Loyola University New Orleans College of Music and Fine Arts. American mezzo-soprano Luretta Bybee, known early on in her career for singing the title role in the world tour of Peter Brook’s La Tragedie de Carmen, also performed in 2014 with the New Orleans Opera in Massenet’s Cendrillon. Bybee, who continues to star in operas nationwide, is married to Loyola alumnus Greer Grimsley ‘76, another international opera star who recently sang the role of Wotan for the Metropolitan Opera’s Ring Cycle in Robert Lepage’s landmark production in spring 2013. Bybee and Grimsley, drawn to New Orleans because of family connections and the Crescent City’s rich opera heritage, are relocating from Boston, where Bybee most recently served in the New England Conservatory’s Opera Studies program.

At Loyola, Bybee will teach studio voice in one-onone private lessons with students. “She takes young singers and turns them into opera stars—that’s her job, and she’s been doing it very well,” said Meg Frazier, associate professor of music and director of choral activities at Loyola. In the world of opera, stars are not simply made by raw talent alone, according to Ellen Frohnmayer, longtime Loyola opera professor. “Singing is passed down one to one—from a teacher to a student. You can’t learn it by a computer; you can’t learn it by a book. You learn it by being in the presence of a teacher. Luretta Bybee is that person. She walks in with all her brilliance, and something is passed down to the student that’s beyond words,” she said. “Loyola presents such opportunity for me. The students are open and eager and the faculty warm, welcoming, talented, and supportive,” Bybee said.

Samuel Beckett Directed by Laura Hope

September 26 – 27, 7:30 p.m. | September 28, 2 p.m. | October 2 – 4, 7:30 p.m.

“NATURE HAS FORGOTTEN US.” Like no other dramatist before him, Samuel Beckett’s works capture the pathos and ironies of modern life yet still maintain his faith in man’s capacity for compassion and survival. In Beckett’s Endgame, truth is found in an absurdest 21stcentury ecological havoc we humans wreak on the planet, and the global warming and rising sea levels that so many deny is happening. “I love order. It’s my dream. A world where all would be silent and still, and each thing in its last place, under the last dust.”

—Samuel Beckett, Endgame

LOYOLA OPERA PRESENTS

Loyola Opera brings to the stage the popular double bill of Puccini’s Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi. Both hour-long masterpieces are from Il trittico, the composer’s cycle of three short works based on contrasting themes. Suor Angelica, centered on life in the convent, is the moving tale of a young nun who finds redemption for her tragic life at the very moment of death. Puccini lavished hauntingly beautiful music on his personal favorite of

the three operas. The comedy Gianni Schicchi features a title character who brilliantly manipulates a family squabbling over the estate of a deceased relative, as well one of the most famous of all operatic arias—“O mio babbino caro.” The performances will be sung in Italian, with projected English supertitles—a first for Loyola Opera. New York stage director Bill Fabris and Loyola’s Carol Rausch will lead the production.
