Table of Contents Experience. Something. Real. Dear Arts Lover, People have been coming together to enjoy live entertainment in outdoor arenas and indoor halls for more than 2500 years. When you attend performances here at The Performing Arts Center you are part of a centuries-old tradition of people who gather to enjoy a matchless communal experience of artists and audiences connecting with one another. Live entertainment. It’s an experience that cannot be had in front of a TV or movie screen. It’s real. Happening before your eyes. And happening only once…ever. The next performance, on another day and in a different place, will be its own unique event. Once-in-a-lifetime performances on our stages in 2013-2014 will include artists who are so well known that their names need no descriptive modifiers: Joshua Bell, Mariinsky, Orpheus, Michael Feinstein, Chanticleer, Dr. John. It includes familiar performers returning to our stages with unexpected and new programs: Sir James Galway returning with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Savion Glover with his new show STePz, Matt Haimovitz in a cello and piano jam with Christopher O’Riley. You will be introduced to some performers you may not have seen before: eighth blackbird’s energetic virtuosity, the compelling choreography of Doug Varone, the sizzling flamenco of Carlota Santana. There is so much more. “More,” in fact, is the operative word! As you look through this brochure you will see that the 2013-2014 season features more orchestras, more dance, more chamber music, and more variety than in previous seasons! We look forward to seeing you, beginning in September, for many, many once-in-a-lifetime performances here at The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College. Harry McFadden Director

Opening Our 36 Season with an American Original th

We wouldn’t open our season with an ordinary artist when extra-ordinary is available. Extraordinary is, indeed, a singular word to describe the singular talent of Cassandra Wilson. She doesn’t merely sing, she wraps her talent around every note and nurtures and gives birth to magnificent jazzy, bluesy sounds while incorporating a touch of country and folk, adding up to peerless, one-of-a-kind music. “A singer blessed with an unmistakable timbre and attack who has expanded the playing field” – Village Voice

One Classic Story, One Actor, a Stage Full of Characters Homer’s Trojan War classic, as envisioned by two visionaries, co-writer and director Lisa Peterson and co-writer and actor Denis O’Hare, is a sprawling yarn of gods and goddesses, undying love, and endless battles. Only a truly brilliant actor, and Tony Award-winner Denis O’Hare fills the bill, can be the solo embodiment of multiple characters. Not ordinary characters either…O’Hare becomes Achilles, Hector, Agamemnon, Helen, Hecuba, Apollo, Hermes, Athena, and all the rest. This sweeping account of humanity’s unshakable attraction to violence, destruction, and chaos raises one question: Has anything really changed since the Trojan War? “Smartly conceived and impressively executed, ‘An Iliad’ relates an age-old story that resonates with tragic meaning today” – The New York Times

Infinite Improvisations Improvisation is expected in comedy, integral to jazz, the mission of many theatre troupes. But improvisation in classical music? Almost unheard of…except in the performances of Caracas-born pianist Gabriela Montero. Playing since the age of five, she is celebrated for real-time improvisations of sophisticated music. Yes, she is true to the art and architecture of standard classical fare, but her concerts have a matchless pizzazz when she creates music on-the-fly, often starting with melodies suggested by audience members. You may already have encountered her on a cold January day a few years ago, playing for the President’s first inauguration. “If you haven’t heard this wondrous pianist, buy your tickets now!” – Seattle Times

The Legend The word “legend” is so over-used in brochures and promotional copy that it has become a cliché. We promise to use it only once, and most appropriately, for Martha Graham. Her influence on dance has been compared to Picasso’s influence on art, Stravinsky’s on music, Frank Lloyd Wright’s on architecture. The dance company she founded continues to foster her spirit of ingenuity more than 20 years after her death. Yes, the repertory includes classic Graham masterpieces, but the company continues to bring fresh perspective to dance through commissions. Miss Graham, the legend, would be proud.

r e v o l The Area Premiere of the Newest Work by the Leading Tap-Master

Savion Glover is a tap-dancing and choreographic genius, there’s no argument about it. Whenever he creates a new work, whether on Broadway, video, or on tour, audiences know they will be in for a thrill-ride of exuberant dance. The theatre was packed, very nearly SRO, when Glover was last at The PAC five years ago. This year Glover and his dancers bring us STePz, a celebration of music and dance taking tap to new heights in an adrenalin rush of a performance that will leave audiences exhilarated. “Glover is the kind of supreme artist you adore” – The Washington Post

North America’s Premier Wind Quintet Visualize a chamber music ensemble. The image conjured usually involves violins and pianos and cellos. Erase that image and visualize a flute and an oboe, a clarinet, a French horn, and a bassoon, and you have Imani Winds, America’s leading wind quintet. This ensemble, all of African and Latin ancestry, enriches the traditional classical repertoire with jazz, AfroCaribbean, and Central and South American sounds. Imani means “faith” in Swahili. Have faith that an Imani Winds recital, featuring traditional as well as new works written expressly for them, will be an experience to be savored. “The group echoes the fresh ‘plein air’ sound of cool breezes and incisive energy” – The Washington Post Left to right: Jeff Scott, French horn Monica Ellis, bassoon Valerie Coleman, flute Mariam Adam, clarinet Toyin Spellman-Diaz, oboe

Irish Chamber Orchestra

‘Tis said, “Ah, the luck o’ the Irish.” If there’s any truth to that statement, good fortune will be in abundance at The PAC when the Irish Chamber Orchestra makes their Purchase debut. In fact, there will be an extra pot of gold at the rainbow’s end as the Orchestra will be joined by one of Ireland’s greatest exports, the great Sir James Galway, along with his wife, Lady Jeanne, who both dazzled in a sold-out performance in the Concert Hall this past season. Based in Limerick, this world-class ensemble is renowned throughout Europe for its intense and passionate mastery of the classical canon. That’s no blarney!

Dance Series Debut of Award-Winning Purchase College Alumnus Purchase College alum Doug Varone is no stranger to our stage, but this marks the first time he and the company he founded have been an official part of The PAC’s dance series. As we expand our dance programming we say it’s about time! Since establishing the company more than a quarter century ago Varone and his dancers have been cheered for work that is, quite simply, contemporary dance at its most compelling, artistry of magnificent versatility, springing from the imagination of Doug Varone, whose choreography has transcended genres from dance to theater to opera. “Mr. Varone’s superb dancers are always worth seeing” – The New York Times

Precise and Passionate with Bow and Strad Joshua Bell is one of a handful of artists who can sell out a concert hall based on their name alone. Is it any wonder? He’s been around so long that one of his concerts feels like a visit from an old friend. He was just a boy, a 14-year-old, when he first appeared as a soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra and only 17 when he made his Carnegie Hall debut. He’s made that rare transition from prodigy to musical maturity and the years have brought him acclaim and almost-a-household-name recognition. Audiences beyond the world of classical concerts know him. Recently he performed the Academy Award-nominated Best Original Song “Before My Time” with Scarlett Johansson. His return to The PAC – he was here a few years ago as a surprise substitute when Itzhak Perlman took ill very shortly before a scheduled gala performance – is cause for celebration. “The greatest American violinist active today” – Boston Herald

Christmas in Vienna Before there was a Beethoven or a Mozart or a Bach there was the Vienna Boys’ Choir singing for the Austrian Court. In recent years this centuries-old choir of young men, ages 10 to 14, has become almost synonymous with the Christmas season through their recordings of classical, popular, and international holiday music. CDs are good, but in-person is better. The voices of these young people, pure and beautiful, mesh and meld into an overwhelming and unforgettable musical experience. This is not the world’s only boys’ choir, but it is the best known…and for good reason.

The Standard-Bearer of Chamber Orchestra Excellence Johnny Carson had the NBC Orchestra. Jay Leno has The Tonight Show Band. If The PAC has a “house band” surely it’s the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. This past year they celebrated their 40th birthday, released their 70th recording, commissioned their 35th original work, and, because our enthusiastic audiences asked for more through their thunderous applause, they returned to Purchase for another performance of grace, subtlety, and passion. This most democratic of ensembles – there is no conductor, every musician is in charge, and critics and audiences agree that it works magnificently – is back, this time with 25-year-old Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, the 2009 Van Cliburn International Competition winner who recently made his Carnegie Hall debut to great acclaim, as guest artist. “Orpheus showed how to blend chamber music transparency with a full symphonic sound” – Washington Post Concert Hall A $82.50 B 72.50 C 52.50

The PAC is only a few miles from where he began to study the piano seriously, as an 8-year-old student at the Music Conservatory of Westchester in White Plains. From there it was Juilliard at the age of 13 and a shelf full of prizes: first prize in the Chopin and Busoni Competitions, the Avery Fisher Prize – you name it, he’s won it. The best news for our audiences: he likes to come home…and we’re only too happy to welcome him. “The muscular grace of Ohlsson’s playing spoke volumes” – The Guardian

We know what you may have thought you read, but the name is Kashkashian. Even major news outlets misidentified her when she took home the Grammy for Best Classical Instrumental Solo earlier this year. Unlike that other Kim, this fellow Armenian doesn’t spend her time shopping for shoes. She spends it on the road, performing as string soloist with blue-chip symphonies throughout the world. With an extensive and eclectic viola repertoire, and accolade upon accolade for her performances, this is a Kim whose name you’ll be hearing long after that other Kim has been forgotten. “Distinguished by her lyricism: the way her songlike music flows easily with emotion” - NPR One of four recitals hosted by NPR’s Bill McGlaughlin.

The Hottest of Hot Dances…Sizzles Flamenco. The word itself conjures notions of fiery passion and jaw-dropping power, neither of which will be in short supply when Carlota Santana’s company, heading into their 30th anniversary season, takes the stage. But there will also be form and subtlety, integral to the dance synonymous with Spain. Watching these artists – arched backs, rolling hips, lightningfast feet – you’ll feel it coming, you may try to suppress it, but you may be overcome and simply have to shout out: “Ole!

Leopold Stokowski’s Orchestral Invention From the stage of Carnegie Hall to the stage of The PAC’s Concert Hall, and halls throughout the world, Leopold Stokowski’s American Symphony Orchestra presents itself as an American original. The great conductor founded it just over 50 years ago, and for the past 20 years Leon Botstein has been wielding the baton and carrying on the tradition. That tradition? Curated concerts – the word “curated” sounds humdrum, but the result is anything but – created around themes from the visual arts, literature, politics, and history, often unearthing rarely performed masterworks for welldeserved revival and revisiting familiar pieces in thrilling new interpretations. “A new concept in orchestras” – The Wall Street Journal

S’Wonderful. S’Marvelous. S’Feinstein.

No one knows the Gershwins as well as Michael Feinstein does. He wrote the book, literally and figuratively. In his club acts in New York City and throughout the world this most celebrated of male cabaret artists has been acclaimed for his explorations of songs popularized by Sinatra as well as the great composers of the American Songbook. But his performance explorations of the Gershwins have not been equaled by any other artist performing today, or yesterday, or quite likely tomorrow.

Matinee Idol Beauty, Olympian Athleticism, Nobel Laureate Inventiveness This is one of the great up-and-coming touring companies, and chances are you will be treated to choreography you have never seen before. They are known for innovation and new works, and their performances are rooted in the athleticism of contemporary dance. Based in two homes, Aspen and Santa Fe, this troupe has no in-house choreographer and instead relies on the work of often little-known dance-makers. The result? Well, the proof is in the applause – spontaneous, enthusiastic, and thunderous – and inevitable return engagements. “A breath of fresh air” – The New York Times

a u s i V Neuberger Museum of Art The Neuberger Museum of Art is the premier museum of modern, African, and contemporary art in the Westchester/Fairfield County region. An outstanding arts and education institution, the Museum was conceived with the dual purpose of serving both as an important cultural resource to its regional, national, and international audiences and as an integral part of Purchase College. The Museum’s mission is to educate our diverse audience in, about, and through the visual arts. Our goal is to engage and inspire by actively fostering the story, appreciation, and understanding of our collection and changing exhibitions. Beginning in 2013 and extending through 2014, we will celebrate the Neuberger Museum of Art’s 40th Anniversary. Special exhibitions, events, and programming are planned. Visit www.neuberger.org, subscribe to our e-news, or connect on Facebook for updates and information.

Richard & Dolly Maass Gallery Located within the School of Art+Design, the Richard & Dolly Maass Gallery presents exhibitions that provide professional context for students and interact with their daily classroom experience. The gallery’s program focuses on emerging artists, A+D alumni, current faculty, and student work. This series includes yearly MFA and BFA student group exhibitions. In conjunction with the Neuberger Museum, the School also connects artists whose work is featured in an exhibition at the Museum with students, oftentimes as a project space. Through this connection, students have the unique opportunity to work with a practicing exhibiting artist who isn’t a member of the School’s faculty.

The Passage Gallery The Passage Gallery serves as a professionalquality interdisciplinary media gallery and exhibition space for student work at Purchase College. The gallery opens new shows on a regular cycle of three to four weeks, representing the breadth of cultural production at the school. The Passage Gallery provides a venue for a diverse array of media, including painting, sculpture, photography, digital media, video, and theatre design, as well as performance and conceptual art forms.

Table of Contents Experience. Something. Real. Dear Arts Lover, People have been coming together to enjoy live entertainment in outdoor arenas and indoor halls for more than 2500 years. When you attend performances here at The Performing Arts Center you are part of a centuries-old tradition of people who gather to enjoy a matchless communal experience of artists and audiences connecting with one another. Live entertainment. It’s an experience that cannot be had in front of a TV or movie screen. It’s real. Happening before your eyes. And happening only once…ever. The next performance, on another day and in a different place, will be its own unique event. Once-in-a-lifetime performances on our stages in 2013-2014 will include artists who are so well known that their names need no descriptive modifiers: Joshua Bell, Mariinsky, Orpheus, Michael Feinstein, Chanticleer, Dr. John. It includes familiar performers returning to our stages with unexpected and new programs: Sir James Galway returning with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Savion Glover with his new show STePz, Matt Haimovitz in a cello and piano jam with Christopher O’Riley. You will be introduced to some performers you may not have seen before: eighth blackbird’s energetic virtuosity, the compelling choreography of Doug Varone, the sizzling flamenco of Carlota Santana. There is so much more. “More,” in fact, is the operative word! As you look through this brochure you will see that the 2013-2014 season features more orchestras, more dance, more chamber music, and more variety than in previous seasons! We look forward to seeing you, beginning in September, for many, many once-in-a-lifetime performances here at The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College. Harry McFadden Director
