2018-19

SEASON

The University of Washington School of Music - Seattle, Washington


WELCOME In our 2018-19 concert season of more than 100 performances and music-related events, we present the culminations of a number of fruitful partnerships as well as unusual opportunities to experience music at the crossroads of art and technology, in fascinating historical contexts, and in the moment of creation. Over the past two years School of Music faculty at the University of Washington have been fortunate to participate in large-scale creative projects made possible through the UW Creative Fellows Initiative, a multi-disciplinary experiment funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation to explore the nature of creative research at a top public research university. This year we present several special performances supported by the initiative that bring together UW Music faculty and master musicians of international renown. Indigo Mist with Special Guest Bill Frisell (Jan. 13), International Experimental Music Ensemble (May 10), and JACK Quartet: Human Subjects (May 18) have all received support from this important project that has enabled UW Music faculty to extend their creative research and investigate experimental methods and approaches to artistic performance and creation. In other creative collaborations, we present several conducting appearances in 2018-19 by Seattle Symphony Music Director Ludovic Morlot, who has served as head of conducting at the School of Music over the past five years and who concludes his tenure at SSO this season. A pair of concerts—one at the UW (Mar. 15) and one at Benaroya Hall (Jan. 25)—showcase his work with students and faculty, and a third appearance with the UW Symphony Orchestra (Nov. 2) underscores the longstanding partnership between the School of Music and SSO, whose principal players often serve as studio instructors at the UW.

PERFORMANCE LOCATION KEY BA - Brechemin Auditorium BH - Benaroya Hall FB - Fish Bowl JPH - Jones Playhouse MT - Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater- Meany Hall for the Performing Arts** MST - Meany Studio Theater WA - Walker Ames Room, Kane Hall **New Name for Meany Theater: The UW’s Meany Theater receives a new name in Fall 2018, becoming the Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater- Meany Hall for the Performing Arts.

A number of those musicians’ work may be heard at the UW on Nov. 11, when bassoonist Seth Krimsky, oboist Mary Lynch and clarinetist Ben Lulich join UW colleagues Donna Shin (flute) and Michael Brockman (saxophone) for a woodwind faculty chamber recital. Other concerts by our outstanding performance faculty include solo recitals by Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir, cello (Oct. 16), Craig Sheppard, piano (Apr. 12), Cristina Valdés, piano (Oct. 26), and Melia Watras, viola (Apr. 17). Faculty musicians Sheppard and Thorsteinsdóttir also perform as a duo on Jan. 31, and another faculty duo, pianist Cristina Valdés and percussionist Bonnie Whiting, perform Stockhausen’s Kontakte on May 1, as well as new works by faculty composers Huck Hodge and Joël-François Durand, whose music is also featured in an Oct. 23 Music of Today performance by New York chamber group the Mivos Quartet. Current students, as always, are well-represented in our season, with quarterly performances by the school’s large orchestral, vocal, band, and jazz ensembles, as well as concerts presented by the instrumental and vocal performance studios. The year concludes with Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem (Jun. 7), for which conductor Geoffrey Boers convenes a choral and orchestral body totaling more than 130 singers and instrumentalists from the UW and area performing arts groups. The afore-mentioned highlights plus numerous recitals, master classes, and presentations by visiting artists and scholars are open to all, and we invite you to join us. The price of admission is modest or free, but your attendance means much to the students, faculty, and guests sharing their knowledge and musicianship. Thank you for your support! Richard Karpen Director, University of Washington School of Music
