music.msu.edu


GREETINGS We have a wonderful and very diverse season planned this year! Our musical offerings include the finest chamber music, fully staged operas, major choral, orchestral, and band productions, award-winning jazz, an excellent array of artist-faculty and guest artist recitals, world premieres, exciting contemporary music, and something new— the “Taylor Johnston Early Music Series,” three concerts with renowned guest artists focused on historically informed performances of music from the Baroque and Renaissance periods. Kicking off the MSU Federal Credit Union Showcase Series, our choral and orchestral ensembles join together to perform Handel’s beloved and inspiring “Messiah” in December, followed by “A Jazzy Little Christmas,” featuring the MSU Professors of Jazz. Two new showcase events, “A Spanish Serenade” and “International Chamber Soloists with Violinist Dmitri Berlinsky,” will satisfy song and string lovers. Familiar favorites include the Joanne and Bill Church West Circle Series, Cello Plus Chamber Music Festival, Jazz Spectacular, and Latin IS America Festival—something for every musical taste! Please join us often in our renovated, intimate venues for one of life’s greatest pleasures—music.

CONDUCTOR Marcello Cormio DIRECTOR Melanie Helton

CONDUCTORS Youqing Yang and David Rayl DIRECTOR Melanie Helton

A young woman is torn between social convention and her heart in this romantic comic opera set in Italy and England. Victorian reserve and Italian passion are combined into a life-affirming love story that will set hearts soaring. Based upon the novel by E.M. Forster and made famous by the Merchant-Ivory film.

The spring opera presentation marks the 10th anniversary of MSU/China Vocal Arts Collaboration with a double bill of theatrical music from both worlds. A mix of classical music and Chinese folk music, A Savage Land (sung in Chinese) is set in northern China in the 1920s and centers on a wrongfully imprisoned man who wreaks vengeance on those responsible for his fate. Next, a rollicking revue of the music of Leonard Bernstein follows, featuring pieces from On the Town, Wonderful Town, West Side Story, and Trouble in Tahiti. Both shows will include Chinese and MSU students, and will be performed in Beijing and on MSU’s campus.

Generously sponsored by Jack and Dottie Withrow

Preview lectures are held 45 minutes before each performance. TICKETS $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, $5 for students. Available from College of Music box office, (517) 353-5340, online at music.msu.edu, or at the door.
