John Law and Mark Pringle Two Piano Concert Friday 10th February 2012, 7.30pm Chapel of the Ascension, University of Chichester Tickets £5 / £3 concessions, University students & staff, under 16’s, UCMA and WSMS members admitted free of charge. Please refer to page 57 for details on how to obtain tickets. John Law ("One of Europe's most adventurous pianists" – The Times) and rising new piano star Mark Pringle will be performing pieces from their new stunning CD, 33JAZZ219. This recording features, alongside some of their original compositions, compositions by Bach, Metheny, Lyle Mays and Cole Porter. Powerful pianism and delicate, contemporary harmonies… Known for straddling both classical, in which he started, and jazz, John Law’s aim is to make the improvising sound like it’s been composed and the compositions as simple and direct as if they’ve been improvised there and then. In addition, he brings to jazz a love of wide dynamic range and different touch at the piano, something which can best be experienced in the solo format. As well as an interest in advanced harmony and rhythm, John’s compositions and playing also explore harmonic simplicity and straight grooves. John Law has played at over fifty festivals worldwide and recorded more than twenty five albums, working with musicians as diverse as Andy Sheppard, Tim Garland and Evan Parker. Mark Pringle is a rising star of the British jazz piano scene. In 2011 he won a scholarship to study at Birmingham Conservatoire and is an ex-student of John Law’s. They recorded the album ‘This is together’ in 2010, featuring, (alongside their own compositions) works by Bach, Metheny, Lyle Mays and Cole Porter.

Asaf Sirkis Trio Thursday 1st March 2012, 7pm Chapel of the Ascension, University of Chichester Tickets £5 / £3 concessions, University students & staff, under 16’s, UCMA and WSMS members admitted free of charge. Please refer to page 57 for details on how to obtain tickets. Featuring: Tassos Spiliotopoulos - guitar Yaron Stavi - bass Asaf Sirkis - drums/compositions In his long and playful partnership with saxophonist Gilad Atzmon, a recent and more delicate one with piano virtuoso John Law, and in many other settings from improv to fusion, Israeli expatriate Asaf Sirkis keeps confirming that he's one of the British jazz scene's most creative drummers. Law says that the way Sirkis just touches a cymbal is an inspiration, long before he's played a beat. North African as well as Middle Eastern music played a big part in his early listening, and he was a bass guitarist as well as a drummer in his teens, so rock and fusion music from the Police to Weather Report and the Mahavishnu Orchestra went deep with him. This trio generates a compelling intensity, and the leader's percussion responses to their ideas are dazzling eruptions of drum mastery. Written by John Fordham.

The Nick Reynolds Trio Monday 5th March 2012, 7.30pm Chapel of the Ascension, University of Chichester All welcome, please refer to page 57 for details on how to obtain your free ticket. Donations will be collected on the night, in aid of the Sussex Snowdrop Trust www.thesussexsnowdroptrust.com This will feature the playing of Senior Lecturer and Jazz Coordinator Nick Reynolds. He will be joined by up and coming jazz stars, Oz Dechaine on double bass and Richard Carter on drums, who are both studying at the university. The concert will involve a selection of standards, arrangements and compositions by Nick.

Year 3 Musical Theatre BA (Hons) Students Present

Into the Woods A world-wide stage sensation, Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods has won multiple awards including an Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival in 2010. Into the Woods is witty, dark and intelligent, mashing-up the stories of fairy tale characters that we have grown to love including Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and Cinderella, to name but a few! With all the characters focused on the same goal of getting their wish, the woods cast a giant shadow over them all, as they each go Into the Woods to make their dreams come true. With great cunning and a few storylines that you definitely won’t find in the original fairy tales, at first they succeed. Until, that is, the Giant’s Wife returns to avenge her husband and living ‘happily ever after’ starts to seem about as likely as Cinderella putting in for some cleaning overtime... Everyone will have to go to Into the Woods one more time... A complex metaphor for choosing the right path, Into the Woods will take you on a journey in which you will discover more than just a handful of magic beans! Created by University of Chichester Touring; the same professional team that brought you last year’s critically acclaimed production of Honk! “The material of ‘Into the Woods’ is potent stuff – as old as time, or at least as old as fairy tales. The conception is brilliant. Mr. Sondheim has as much fun as one expects with his wicked airing of the old tales.” (The New York Times on the Original Production) Tour Details March 2012 15th Christ’s Hospital, Horsham 16th Exchange Studio, Hazlitt Arts Centre, Maidstone 18th Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury 19th Regis Centre, Bognor Regis 20th Studio, The Hawth, Crawley 22th Medina Theatre, Newport, Isle of Wight 24th Sallis Benney Theatre, Brighton 25th Theatre Royal Winchester April 2012 11th Union Theatre, Southwark, London 12th Union Theatre, Southwark, London 13th Union Theatre, Southwark, London 14th Union Theatre, Southwark, London This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd on behalf of Music Theatre International of New York.

It is the beginning of the 20th Century and the onset of war is looming. As the nightlife of London comes out to play, a fatalistic affair of the heart ignites, as the city around them burns. City Walls is an exciting new arts initiative, founded in 2011, to celebrate both contemporary aesthetic and classic opera. This brand new reimagining of the first truly English opera by Henry Purcell takes the drama of the 16th century stage and places it firmly into the heart of a conflict that defined the century that would follow it. With a baroque ensemble and condensed cast, the production thrives on site-specific commissions, including Fishbourne Roman Palace and Portsmouth’s HMS Warrior. A not-to-be-missed interpretation, the performance will also be followed by a post-show talk with the creative team and the company.
