Welcome W

elcome to UApresents’ 2010-2011 Season! From classical, dance, jazz and world music to family programming, spectacular events and Broadway – it’s all at UApresents this season.

We are thrilled that the most popular Broadway musical ever, WICKED, will be at Centennial Hall for a three-week run in January. UApresents and Broadway in Tucson have partnered to make this possible. Our season opens with a festive celebración of Mexico’s two hundred years of independence with Mariachi Sol de México and Vikki Carr. We are proud to host three American dance masters – Paul Taylor, Martha Graham and a very special farewell performance by the legendary Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Two ‘Special Events,’ Blue Man Group and Cirque Dreams, will be here with exciting new productions and ‘Family Fun’ with “Choo-Choo Soul with Genevieve!” from Playhouse Disney will delight. The tradition of excellence continues with some of the finest performers in each of our core genres including Joshua Bell, Liza Minnelli, Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis, KODO and the electrifying Noche Flamenca. From all of us at UApresents, thank you for your support. The world-class artists and extraordinary performances that comprise this season stand firmly among the finest arts presenters in the nation and your generosity is crucial to maintain this high quality programming for our community. Ticket sales account for just over half of our cost to host these great performances and cuts to state funding support for education have deeply impacted UApresents. The support of individual and corporate sponsors, grants and donations are needed more than ever before to fund the balance. Please consider a gift in any amount to help us continue to host the artists and performances that will captivate your imagination, inspire you and enrich your life. I look forward to seeing you at Centennial Hall!

Most especially, I am proud to have UApresents as an integral facet of the comprehensive University of Arizona experience.

This promises to be another record season for UApresents. Despite deep cuts to state funding, UApresents continues to operate responsibly, generating positive year-end results for three consecutive seasons. I know there are many University units competing for your attention and I’m grateful to the individuals and businesses that generously support UApresents with sponsorships and donations. With the community’s continued support, the University will do all it can to ensure this valuable asset is not lost.

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One – born with emerald green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete – and completely satisfying – new musical in a long time” (USA Today).

VENICE BAROQUE ORCHESTRA: “THE SEASONS PROJECT” ROBERT McDUFFIE, Leader and Violin Soloist Sunday, October 31, 2010 at 3pm Tickets: $55, $40, $25 Students/Faculty & Staff: $55, $36, $15 Event Sponsors: Madeleine Murray & Bob Hornack and Linda Staubitz in memory of Art Staubitz VIVALDI GLASS

Le Quattro Staggioni, Op. 8 “The Four Seasons” Violin Concerto No. 2 “The American Four Seasons”

Magical, hauntingly beautiful and soaring, capped with plenty of violin pyrotechnics and an ending that violin soloist McDuffie says “goes like a bat out of hell.” “The American Four Seasons” is only the second violin concerto by the prolific Philip Glass, whom Rolling Stone has called “the best-known living classical composer on the planet.” The piece, written specifically for McDuffie, premiered in December, 2009 and the Toronto Star wrote it was “one of the most exciting musical evenings of the year.” McDuffie and the Orchestra pair the new work with their unique interpretation of its inspiration, Vivaldi’s cherished “The Four Seasons.” The Orchestra, one of Europe’s premier ensembles, will perform the Vivaldi on baroque-era instruments.

MENAHEM PRESSLER and the NEW YORK CHAMBER SOLOISTS with RICHARD STOLTZMAN Sunday, November 21, 2010 at 7pm Tickets: $55, $40, $25 • Students/Faculty & Staff: $55, $36, $15 Event Sponsors: Sue & Alan Cohen MOZART BRAHMS MOZART

Clarinet Concerto, K. 622 Sonata No. 2 for Clarinet and Piano, Op. 120 Piano Concerto No. 17, K. 453

The world’s foremost clarinetist, two-time Grammy-winner Stoltzman brought the clarinet to the forefront as a solo instrument. His virtuosity, technique and imagination revolutionized the world of clarinet playing. The New York Times extols his “impeccable musicianship,” asking, “If Mr. Stoltzman is not one of a kind, who might the others be?” Pianist Pressler is among the world’s most distinguished and honored musicians with a career spanning over five decades. Pressler, whose life has always been dedicated to music, escaped Nazi Germany with his family and learned piano in Israel as a youth. Los Angeles Times applauds his “joyous pianism – technically faultless, stylistically impeccable, emotionally irrepressible… from another age and a virtually forgotten sensibility.” Acclaimed as an outstanding ensemble of distinguished virtuosi, performing widely diverse repertoire in creatively programmed concerts, the New York Chamber Soloists have maintained a unique niche in the chamber music world for nearly five decades.

First violinist and guest leader Andrew Watkinson has led or directed almost all of London’s chamber orchestras, and served 15 years as director with the City of London Sinfonia. Watkinson inspires instinctive musicianship from the players, a technique that keeps them exceptionally aware of their interdependence. The Scotsman writes, “...this band operates like a pack of wolves… the impact of the ensemble was breathtaking, a riveting like-mindedness, laced with spectacular displays of inspired individuality.”

Jay Blakesberg

The Seattle Times calls their work, “Thought-provoking, earopening and just plain beautiful.” The Quartet moves gracefully among the classical, jazz and rock repertoires. Violinist and founder Dave Harrington says, “I’ve always wanted the string quartet to be vital, and energetic, and alive, and cool, and to be absolutely beautiful and ugly if it has to be. But it has to be expressive of life. To tell the story with grace and humor and depth.” Kronos Quartet has pursued that artistic vision for more than 30 years, performing thousands of concerts worldwide, releasing more than 45 recordings of extraordinary breadth and creativity, collaborating with many of the world’s most eclectic composers and performers and commissioning more than 650 new works and arrangements.

At home on the Broadway stage, the Tony Award-winning actor has held leads in Kiss Me, Kate, Man of La Mancha and Ragtime, and is equally at home in concert settings from Feinstein’s to Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl. His musical versatility and thrilling voice make for an instrument that The New York Times says “rumbles out of him like thunder underlined by drum rolls.” Variety calls his voice, “a richly tailored, warm and resonant instrument, capable of caressing the kind of melody that has staying power.” The New York Times adds, “It is no exaggeration to say that Brian Stokes Mitchell is right now in a class by himself as a Broadway leading man. No other actor can match his singing voice. No other singer can claim his acting range or experience.” Mr. Mitchell will be appearing with his four-piece band.

Ever topical and up-to-the-minute, she treats even the news from Washington so artfully it draws laughter from both sides of the aisle.

Glover was just out of his teens when Noise/Funk established its star as a household name – for many, the only name in tap. In this new program, Glover goes toe-to-toe with flamenco’s raw passion, pounding out rhythms with blinding speed. The New York Times says of his performance, “his strength doesn’t stop at his feet… with his trademark dreadlocks flying, it pumps through his body, radiating out like an electrical force.”

Saturday, November 20, 2010 at 8pm

At age 79, Taylor is the sole survivor of the universally recognized great 20th century choreographers. His company returns to Tucson with a new program of physically joyful creations including “Beloved Renegade.” Taylor’s genius lies in celebrating the simple moves of life, gestures and stances from the street, everyday moves that in themselves are full of grace and beauty. The New York Times wrote, “There is no other choreographer today whose imaginative range looks so large or so multilayered.” Taylor and his company have been advancing modern dance for 55 years – his bold inventiveness, his dancers’ disciplined lyricism and the all-American brio of his choreography inspired the San Francisco Chronicle to cheer, “The American spirit soars whenever Taylor’s dancers dance.”

MERCE CUNNINGHAM DANCE COMPANY: “LEGACY TOUR” Saturday, March 12, 2011 at 8pm Tickets: $70, $55, $35 Students/Faculty & Staff: $70, $50, $15 Event Sponsors: John E. Wahl & Mary Lou Forier

This will be one of the final performances of this iconoclastic company, one of the most influential dance companies of its era. On New Year’s Eve, 2011, the Company will close, according to Cunningham’s explicit design, a legacy plan to guide his company and ensure the preservation of his artistic legacy. Reviving key works from Cunningham’s repertory, the program will feature the last dancers he personally trained. Cunningham, who died in July, 2009, was a leader of the American avant-garde throughout his 70-year career and is considered one of the most important choreographers of our time. His Company forged a distinctive style, reflecting his technique and illuminating the near limitless possibility for human movement. Mikhail Baryshnikov has said, “Merce Cunningham reinvented dance, and then waited for the audience…. The elegance, simplicity and force of his work are unique – and undeniable… he has taught us something new and powerful about how to dance and how to live.”

John Deane

Tickets: $60, $45, $30 Students/Faculty & Staff: $60, $41, $15 Event Sponsors: Ginnie & Bob McKay “Panorama” Sponsor: Dr. Mary Jo Ghory An American genius and treasure, Graham created an art form that would become the foundation for modern dance. She came decisively into her own in the 1940s, turning out in rapid succession a decade-long series of potent dance dramas. She continued dancing until the age of 74 and choreographed well into her ‘90s. Her repertoire of an astounding 181 works puts her on par with Picasso, Stravinsky and Frank Lloyd Wright as one of the 20th century’s seminal artistic forces. Her dance company, the oldest and most celebrated in the world, is a training ground for dance’s most illustrious performers. Now led by Artistic Director Janet Eilber, who worked closely with Graham for more than a decade, the Company continues to find its inspiration for movement in the vast American tapestry. The evening’s program will include 1935’s “Panorama” – featuring students from the UA School of Dance – and a full production of one of Graham’s most popular works, “Appalachian Spring.” The first governmentcommissioned dance work, “Appalachian Spring” established dance as a major art form and had an impact well beyond anything then imagined.

Recognized as the world’s most authentic flamenco touring company, Martín Santangelo, his BESSIE award-winning wife, Soledad Barrio, and their company, manifest the essence, purity, and integrity of one of the world’s most complex and mysterious art forms. With dancers and musicians drawn from the region where flamenco is the inheritance of each new generation, their performances are transcendent and deeply emotional.

SEPTETO NACIONAL IGNACIO PIÑEIRO de CUBA Wednesday, March 30, 2011 at 7:30pm Tickets: $38, $28, $18 Students/Faculty & Staff: $38, $25, $15 Event Sponsors: Don & Bárbara Benjamín Founded in 1927 by bassist and songwriter Ignacio Piñeiro, they performed at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. For more than 80 years the group has performed in more than 35 nations around the world. Now composed of a fourth generation of musicians, their exceptional musicianship and artistry is firmly rooted in the musical explosion of Cuban son that took place during the 1920s and ‘30s, evoking the nostalgic elegance of the ballrooms and dance clubs of the era. Piñeiro’s innovation was to add trumpet to the guitars, percussion and voices of previous son groups and he may well have named salsa music with his song “Échale Salsita,” (‘throw a little sauce on it”). Of this, their first U.S. tour since FDR was in office, The Miami Herald said, “this ensemble played with exceptional precision and drive.”

THE JOHNNY CLEGG BAND Friday, May 6, 2011 at 8pm Tickets: $38, $28, $18 Students/Faculty & Staff: $38, $25, $15 Event Sponsors: Maria & Tom Tilton Musician, dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, activist and French knight – all describe him, but none captures the energy and passion of the man who has become one of South Africa’s greatest musical exports. He has campaigned against the injustice of apartheid and has been instrumental in putting the new South Africa on the map. Born in England, raised in Africa, Clegg found teachers and advocates among Zulu musicians and performed and recorded with them before such collaborations were legal. The New York Times says, Clegg “has refined a sophisticated international style of pop that blends Zulu guitar and African percussion with Anglo-American pop.” Known for his energetic stage performances, he entertains and enlightens with amusing anecdotes, historical bits and pieces and anthropological facts. tickets online at uapresents.org

Education & Outreach Mark Morris Dance Group master class photos by Sarah K Smith.

Education is a critical focus of UApresents’ mission. Despite continued challenges to funding for education in Arizona, UApresents remains committed to providing opportunities for K-12 students throughout our community. UApresents once again will take renowned artists directly to our local schools. Last season, in collaboration with the Tucson Unified School District, our ‘In the Schools’ program brought Latin American music duo Calle Sur, contemporary dance company Northwest Professional Dance Project and science educator and performer Garry Krinksy to thousands of area students.

Since we no longer have a music teacher, the children enjoyed participating with the performance. – M. M., Reynolds Elementary School With the generous support of our donors, UApresents will continue to offer master classes and workshops with professional artists for K-12 and UA college students, as well as deeply discounted tickets to ensure that children and families from underserved communities are able to attend UApresents events – for many, their first live performing arts experience. In addition, we regularly offer complimentary tickets to students in various University departments throughout the year. New this season, UApresents will launch the Student Critic Program.

It was both entertaining and informative… a perfect school outing! – C. V., Davis Bilingual Elementary University and K-12 students will attend performances and write reviews which will be posted online. The goal of this program is to engage students more directly in the performances and help them gain critical thinking and writing skills. Watch our website, uapresents.org, for updates and details on all of this season’s education programming.
