FROM THE CHANCELLOR Welcome to the Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts—a crown jewel of Denver’s arts scene and an embodiment of the University of Denver’s commitment to our community.


Over the years, Denver audiences have come to count on the Newman Center and its acclaimed performing arts series. This year, we are launching a Family Series and a Student Matinee Series. Both series are results of the realization of DU IMPACT 2025, our strategic vision, which calls on the University to expand its deep roots in the Denver community, with a commitment to diversity and inclusion through our programming, learning and community engagement. The Newman Center’s stages enable our students to demonstrate their remarkable gifts, attracting some of the most promising and talented young people in the nation. This building helps every student production in our Lamont School of Music and the Department of Theatre showcase their extraordinary energy, enthusiasm and dedication. Here at the Newman Center, our students pursue their passions and discover their capacity to collaborate and innovate. May their creativity and talent inspire us all to reflect on what it means to be human—to create and appreciate artistic expression and use it to understand ourselves and our world. Enjoy tonight’s performance. I hope you will return again to another of our many offerings. Rebecca Chopp Chancellor, University of Denver

Opened in 2002, The Robert & Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Denver is acclaimed as one of the nation’s finest performing arts centers. Unique in the region for its size, acoustic quality, and caliber of artists, the Newman Center is dedicated to showcasing cultural diversity, stretching the imagination, and stimulating dialogue. The Newman Center hosts nearly 500 performances each season with up to 120,000 people in attendance. As a creative and effective leader in arts presenting the NCPA has served as an artistic gathering place and an economic engine elevating Denver’s reputation as the Cultural Capital of the West. In 2016, Kendra Whitlock Ingram joined the Newman Center in the Executive Director position. Heeding the call of DU IMPACT 2025 as well as a parallel directive in the Denver Arts & Venues Imagine 2020 plan to ‘make art unavoidable,’ Ingram is focused on blurring the lines between campus and community by presenting diverse and excellent performances, developing key community partnerships, and creating programming for families in order to introduce new generations to the performing arts.

A CONVERSATION WITH BOB AND JUDI NEWMAN What are you most excited about this season? We are very proud of the fact that every year NCP features world-class performers that might not otherwise appear in Denver. Gates Hall is a wonderfully constructed, mid-size venue with outstanding acoustics – a classic and marvelous place to see and hear great performances.

2017-2018 Newman Center Presents

This year, the quality of programming continues and the breadth of programming expands. We look forward to long-time favorites like the King’s Singers, Sarah Chang and Gregory Porter as well as new surprises like Cashore Marionettes. We are particularly excited for the new Family and Student Matinee Series that will bring incredible performances to young audiences.

Bob: I very much like musical theater so my first choice would be a reprise of My Fair Lady, with Rex Harrison, Stanley Holloway and Audrey Hepburn. Since that will never happen, I would settle for a Lamont production, perhaps showcasing both professionals and DU students in various roles. A second choice: we were fortunate to once have Marvin Hamlisch visit our home in Denver and play for a small gathering. He even composed a short song, with lyrics, for us. What a talent – it was magical! Judi: My fantasy concert would be Frank Sinatra with the Rat Pack including Liza Minelli, Frank with Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr. dancing, Barbra Streisand (no politics), Tony Bennett, Adele, the Irish Tenors, Yo-Yo Ma, Victor Borge and Louis Armstrong. Wow, what a show that would be! Please watch the sound volume – no ear plugs needed!

If you had to choose one performance at the Newman Center from the past 14 years, what would be your favorite? A truly tough question to answer – so many outstanding performances! But perennially, we tend to favor vocal groups like Cantus, King’s Singers and the Whiffenpoofs as well as instrumental groups like Colorado Symphony ensembles, Bluegrass Masters, and Boston Brass. A truly memorable performance was by Manhattan Transfer at the 5th Anniversary concert.

Antonio’s continuous search as an artist has pushed him to compose and lead his own bands and ensembles. He has released 4 critically acclaimed albums under his name. His first one, “Migration” was called “one of the best new releases of 2007” by All About Jazz and features a star studded cast which includes Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, Chris Potter, David Sanchez and Scott Colley. His second solo effort “Live in New York” was recored during a 4 day run at the prestigious Jazz Standard in New York City and features saxophone greats David Sanchez and Miguel Zenon as well as bassist Scott Colley. Antonio’s 2013 album “New Life” was made entirely of his own compositions and was widely received by critics all over the world. It was the winner of the prestigious German Echo Jazz Award in 2014. Downbeat Magazine said: “New Life is that rare combination of great composing, great players and great musicianship” 2015 will see the release of two very distinct projects that are important milestones in Sanchez’s solo career: “Three Times Three”, a double album which features three stellar trios: Brad Mehldau and Matt Brewer, John Scofield and Christian McBride and last but not least Joe Lovano and John Patitucci. This record includes six original compositions and three standards arranged by Antonio. The second 2015 release will be with Migration, his working band since 2011. This edition of the band will feature Seamus Blake on saxophone, John Escreet on piano and Matt Brewer on bass. This album will feature a 60 minute long piece written by Sanchez called “The Meridian Suite” which pushes his compositional skills in a way that no other project has done before. His writing is also featured on two of Gary Burton’s latest releases. “Common Ground” and “Guided Tour” include four of Antonio’s original compositions and the earlier album was named after his tune of the same name. In 2013 Antonio was invited by acclaimed filmmaker Alejandro Gonzales Iñarritu (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel, Biutiful) to create the original film score for his 2014 release Birdman (Fox Searchlight) featuring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts and Emma Thompson. This is a very unique project that features Sanchez’s drumming as the main musical ingredient in Iñarritu’s film. It won the Sound Stars Award for best Film Score at the 2014 Venice Film Festival and got nominated for the 2014 Hollywood Music in Media Awards for best original Film Score. ii

Antonio’s interest in education has taken him around the globe performing clinics, drum festivals and master classes. Some of these festivals include the “Modern Drummer Festival Weekend”, “Zildjian Day” and the “Montreal Drum Festival” among many others. He was also a professor at the prestigious New York University from 2006-2009 but had to stop due to his hectic touring schedule. He has been the featured cover artist in some of the most widely read drum and jazz magazines in the industry like “Modern Drummer” (USA and Brazil), “Percussioni”, “JazzIt” and “Drumset” (Italy), “Drums and Percussion” (Germany) “Musico Pro” (USA). He won the Modern Drummer Reader’s Poll for Best Jazz Drummer in 2013 and has been a top contender since the early 2000’s. He’s also been among the top ranked drummers on Downbeat’s critic’s and reader’s polls since 2004. He’s endorsed by Yamaha Drums, Zildjian Cymbals and Sticks (Antonio Sanchez Signature model), Remo Drumheads and LP Percussion. He’s made New York City his home since 1999.

Precious moments then, can still be precious moments now.

While a lot of things change over the years, some things don’t. And getting older doesn’t mean you have to stop doing what you love. So we encourage our residents to keep on doing their thing while we take care of the rest.

This feels like home.® (303) 951-4402 | | 6383 East Girard Place | Denver, CO 80222 A SPECTRUM RETIREMENT COMMUNITY
