Celebrate the holidays at Macky For decades, Front Range locals have known there’s no better destination for holiday merriment than Macky Auditorium.

Luckily for revelers, this year’s festive season brings even more merriment than usual.

“Heartfelt” is just as apt a word for the Holiday Festival, an end-of-semester bash that shines a spotlight on the immensely talented faculty and students at CU Boulder’s College of Music. As usual, the festival will feature performances from CU’s choirs, jazz bands, vocal jazz ensembles, the Wind Symphony, the University Symphony Orchestra and select faculty members.

Along with CU Presents’ annual Holiday Festival, a Boulder favorite for more than three decades, audiences also have a chance to attend a second seasonal event at Macky Auditorium featuring the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.

Gregory Gentry, CU Boulder’s director of choral studies, says audiences can expect the return of a few wellloved pieces and the arrival of some new surprises, such as a visit from a swingy, Andrews Sisters-like trio and other seasonal guests.

The octet of singing, strumming players from across the pond visits Boulder on Thursday, Dec. 8 for a funny, virtuosic, twanging, foot-stomping evening of classic carols and new holiday favorites. The orchestra regularly performs for sold-out crowds across the world and has gathered a cultish following thanks to its wildly popular covers of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Psycho Killer.”

“The African holiday song Betelehemu, a longtime favorite, and music from John Williams’ score to Home Alone are also in the mix,” Gentry adds.

80 Anniversary th

Even more extraordinary, they’re loved by patrons and critics alike. The New York Times marvels at the orchestra’s ability to “extract more than seems humanly possible from so small and so modest an instrument.” And London’s Financial Times claims that “the sophisticated sound they make—both percussive and melodic—is at once hilarious and heartfelt.”

Can’t make it to Macky? Denverites who enjoy holiday music with a jazzy twist can also attend a free performance of Duke Ellington’s “Nutcracker Suite” at Capitol Hill’s Dazzle Restaurant and Lounge on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. Esteemed faculty members in the College of Music’s Thompson Jazz Studies Program join student performers.

For Takács Quartet, Beethoven Beckons

The University of Colorado Boulder’s famously loyal Takács Quartet fans can expect to hear a whole lot of Ludwig van Beethoven this season. CU Boulder’s longtime quartet-in-residence is gearing up for a season of Beethoven’s entire string quartet canon to coincide with the recent release of violinist Edward Dusinberre’s book, Beethoven for a Later Age: Living with the String Quartets. They’ll perform some of the pieces in Boulder and others in a handful of major international cities. “It was just time to perform the cycle again,” says Takács Quartet founder and cellist András Fejér. “It’s always nice to re-immerse yourself in these gorgeous pieces. Thinking about Ed’s book while playing will be the cherry on top.” The Grammy-winning group, often considered one of the finest chamber ensembles in the world, is no stranger to the composer whose unique sound famously bridged the classical and romantic periods. A decade ago, the Takács released a recording of Beethoven’s complete string quartets to unanimous critical acclaim. The New Yorker’s Alex Ross called it “the most richly expressive modern account of this titanic cycle.”

For Fejér, there’s no composer whose music is more moving and endlessly fascinating than Beethoven’s, so it’s no wonder that the quartet returns to his work again and again. “The breadth and the scope of the pieces, starting from his early quartets and finishing with the quartets written after his Ninth Symphony … the emotions, the passion, the way he turns the classical structure on its head … the way he builds themes … it’s all incredible,” Fejér says. “The combination of all these factors makes the Beethoven string quartets some of the most difficult pieces to perform, digest, analyze and synthesize.” When the quartet isn’t tackling Ludwig in the 201617 concert season, they’ll be partnering up with CU Boulder’s many talented, award-winning faculty musicians for pieces both familiar and new to them, including Dohnányi’s Piano Quintet, Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet and selected songs by Brahms. “Every piece we play with our colleagues is exciting because we don’t have the opportunity to play it too many times,” Fejér says. “It’s wonderful to have an outside influence and outside energy taking us places where we wouldn’t normally go as a quartet.” Through May 1, 2017 | Tickets start at $36

An a cappella extravaganza 80th Anniversary

One group single-handedly brought vocal jazz to the masses. The other’s smooth R&B hits inspired a new generation of a cappella mania, from The Sing Off to Glee to Smash.

Now that they’ve teamed up, there’s nothing they can’t conquer. For the first time ever, The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6, two of the most respected singing groups in the world, have joined forces for a worldwide performance tour and recording project … and Boulder audiences have a chance to hear them at Macky Auditorium on Friday, Nov. 11. Jazz fans will rejoice to hear the newly reformed Manhattan Transfer singing again with a brand new bass. Founded in 1975 by the late Tim Hauser, the vocal quartet began performing in small New York jazz clubs and quickly rose to become a major recording act and “one of the slickest groups in today’s market” (The New York Times). Many still consider their iconic renditions of “Operator,” “Route 66” and “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square” to be the pinnacle of vocal jazz. Take 6, the most awarded ensemble in vocal history, appeals to soul, R&B and spiritual music fans alike. Since the release of their 1988 breakout single “Spread

18

Love,” the group has been inseparable and its fans legendarily loyal. And it’s no mystery why: After a 2013 concert, The New York Times declared, “this group still does some things that no one else in its field can touch.” The ensemble’s six members effortlessly move together as one through the complex harmonies and cleverly syncopated rhythms of their own pop arrangements and original songs. With 20 Grammy awards between them, worldwide sales in the millions and a comfortable familiarity with sold-out tours, it’ll come as no surprise to learn that their double act has already been widely hailed. Having heard the ten singers together, Basketball Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar proclaims “they must be heard to be believed. “Take 6 and The Manhattan Transfer have combined their talents to create an evening of incredible joy, and they do it without forgetting to swing,” he says. The journalist Michael Bourne adds, “The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6 together … you could hear such profound and delightful artistry. You could feel how much fun they were having. I can’t think of enough superlatives. How about WOW X 10!” Friday, Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m. in Macky Auditorium | tickets start at $20

MAKE ANYTHING POSSIBLE. When we are guided, supported and encouraged by others, it’s a powerful experience. It builds our confidence, brightens our outlooks and frees us to imagine all that’s possible. However, when resources are stretched and families struggle to make ends meet, it is difficult just to keep kids safe and cared for, let alone to give them opportunities to play sports, learn new things and explore new worlds.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, that’s the one featuring the founder George Hinchliffe, has already enjoyed touring in the United States several times. For those who have not yet encountered it, the essential point is that it is an original musical ensemble featuring only ukuleles of various sizes and registers, accompanied by just the natural voices of the performers.

become tired of the conventions of the music business world as well as the conventions of performance and genre stereotyping which were prevalent at that time.

Harsher critics have stated the opinion that the Ukulele Orchestra formed their repertoire based on any music considered inappropriate for the instrument, with a “shopping trolley dash through genres” and musical history. For this U.S. tour the original Ukes will be celebrating the holiday season with a special show featuring Christmas songs. They will ask the audience to add to the music by inviting them to participate in a ukulele play-and-sing-along from their seats in the hall. The show will also include tunes taken from their recent exploration of American folk and blues, recently recorded on their album The Keeper and of course their ever popular genre-clashing antics from heavy metal to bebop and jazz, punk and reggae.

Today, after many years, the Orchestra finds that wherever they go, people are now playing ukuleles, often in groups. Many of these enthusiasts tell the Orchestra that they were inspired to play the instrument after seeing and hearing this, the original Ukulele Orchestra.

In Europe and America the Orchestra is best known for playing versions of famous rock songs and film themes, sometimes changing these so that the expectations of the audience are subverted. Sometimes a rock song will be changed into a jazz idiom, or sometimes several songs which are known from different genres are combined in one “soup of contrasts.” Expect the Ukes to use the same treatment on Jingle Bells and Good King Wenceslas, so prepare for the unexpected when you play along! The Ukulele Orchestra has been seen worldwide by audiences. This year they had the honour to perform for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle. The Prince of Wales invited them to entertain the British Monarch at her private 90th birthday party. They have also performed for other crowned heads of Europe, at the Houses of Parliament in London, and been watched by tens of millions of television and online viewers. In one territory, the Orchestra has played to audiences comprising 60 percent of the population! When The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain began in 1985, the public opinion was that an orchestra consisting entirely of ukuleles in different sizes was a strange concept. This was something that attracted the founders. The Orchestra members at that time had experience of many kinds of music and yet had

C-2

The idea was to make something fresh and entertaining, both modern and old-fashioned, in a different style which deviated from the current performance fashion. People liked the result.

And now there are many ukulele orchestras, some acknowledging the pioneering work of the UOGB, others claiming ignorance of this rich history, but none of them existing before this, the original Ukulele Orchestra. In 2016 The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain will celebrate one billion seconds of “ukuleleation,” having been “on the road” for 31 years and counting. While it is not normally in the nature of these artists from Britain to “blow their own trumpets,” or in this case to “pluck their own ukuleles,” it is undeniably a fact that The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has become not only a national institution but also a worldwide phenomenon. Among their many international concerts and festival appearances, they have “Sold Right Out” twice at Carnegie Hall in New York, twice at The Royal Albert Hall in London and also at Sydney Opera House in Australia. The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has been featured in a CNN report and featured on CBS This Morning, as well as making the front page of the Arts section of the New York Times. The Orchestra has been invited by the British Broadcasting Corporation to play live on air for BBC Radio 3 (the classical music channel) as well as for BBC Radio 1 (the rock, electronic dance music and youth music channel) and live on other BBC channels many times. They have taken part in The Electric Proms (in a collaboration with The Kaiser Chiefs) and the BBC Promenade Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in London (The Proms), where they were the “fastest selling late night prom in history.”

In addition to performing at theaters and concert halls, the orchestra has also packed the crowds in at rock festivals such as Glastonbury, The Big Chill, WOMAD, The Electric Picnic, Beautiful Days, WOMADelaide and before 170,000 people in Hyde Park, as well as playing in seven cathedrals in England and Wales. The group has been commissioned to write commemorative concerts, such as The Cecil Sharp 100 Year Memorial Concert in 2012 and The 100 Year World War One Memorial Concert in 2014 for Birmingham Town Hall.

The Orchestra has recorded and released records, CDs and DVDs on its own independent label, as well as with CBS, Sony, Discethnique, Longman, Volume, Tachyon and The Ministry of Sound, as well as appearing on Jools Holland’s Hootenany.

One unique feature of this, the original Ukulele Orchestra, is that although there are many examples of collaboration, they have remained a determinedly independent concern. Relying on their own resources and an email list of tens of thousands, they continue to run their own recording and publishing and to eschew mainstream advertising and record companies.

Original compositions and songs by the Orchestra have been used in television, film, and in radio plays, as well as in performance by other musicians. They have collaborated with the British Film Institute in providing music for silent films and also musically with Madness, Robbie Williams, Ant & Dec, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), Stefan Raab, Rainer Hersch and a full symphony orchestra performing at the Royal Festival Hall in London. Beatle George Harrison was a well known fan who established contact and played with the orchestra. Bette Midler is also a fan.

The arrangements of the music are specially made, often by the director and founder, George Hinchliffe, or by other members of the group. The focus is to bring out the spirit of the music and to be faithful to the musical notes while actually changing the style or genre of the music by the mere fact of playing it on ukuleles. Audiences have reported that the music of the orchestra is, variously, moving, funny, stomping, thought provoking, surprising, or inducing the audience by sheer infectious spirit to “tap their toes” along with the beat.

Bigger, bolder, and brighter: Announcing the College of Music Advantage The College of Music continues its push toward a bigger, bolder and brighter future for music at the University of Colorado Boulder. And it’s a journey the college’s many stakeholders are embarking on together. Dubbed the College of Music Advantage, the college’s 10-year strategic plan was unanimously approved by faculty and subsequently endorsed by staff and the Music Advisory Board in early 2016. In his third year at the helm of the college, Dean Robert Shay says the support the plan has received can be largely attributed to the way it was drawn up. “It was important that this was a homegrown plan,” Shay explains. “Early on, we developed a sense of it being our collaborative effort with everyone having a stake in it. The priorities flowed organically from a series of conversations among many constituents.” Those priorities include everything from increasing student and curricular diversity to expanding the College of Music’s footprint with newly renovated spaces on campus. Shay says the college is poised to get off to a great start. “A critical time in the strategic planning process is between approval and the beginning of implementation. We have now developed action plans for each year, determined who will be in the driver’s seat for each initiative and decided on necessary resources and deliverables so we can measure our progress effectively.” In the first year of the plan’s implementation, the College of Music will see several of its top students and ensembles travel to New York’s famed Carnegie Hall for a showcase concert in Weill Recital Hall this November. The appearance, along with the April 2016 Boettcher Showcase Concert in Denver, represent a major goal of the plan: to connect student success to professional achievement. “These opportunities not only give students a chance to perform in some of the nation’s greatest venues but also grow our presence in major urban centers,” Shay says.

24

Other projects on tap over the next few years—such as the creation of a bachelor’s degree in music with a media and technology emphasis and the expansion of the Musicians’ Wellness Program—are part of the college’s goal to provide more than performance opportunities for students. “We want to deliver a well-rounded education for all our students, whether they are earning performance or academic-based degrees such as music education,” Shay explains, “though for all students we need to be sure we’re including value-adding experiences that position them for professional success.” Also coming down the pike are enhanced alumni resources, an annual distinguished lectureship on diversity and inclusion in music and the establishment of a student professional development travel initiative. As the college looks toward its 2020 centennial, Shay says it’s crucial that administration, faculty and staff not rest on their laurels. “Any successful organization must always be thinking ahead several years and anticipating changes.” That rings especially true for music in higher education. “In music, it’s a critical time. So many of the previous conceptions of music education and music careers have been changing rapidly, and this plan allows us to position ourselves as being on the forefront of preparing musicians who will be the leaders of tomorrow.” You can find more information about the College of Music Advantage on colorado.edu/music and read more in the 2016 edition of Colorado Music Magazine.
