2016-17

SEASON


WELCOME Our annual concert series fulfills many roles beyond providing music and scholarship to the citizens of our region. The dozens of free and low-cost performances and music-related events we present in 2016-17 represent performance and learning opportunities for students like the members of the Corda Quartet (shown below), one of two scholarship chamber groups representing the School of Music in 2016-17 (See page 11 to learn more about this year’s scholarship winners). The modest cost of admission to our performances—and the cost of our season subscription, the School of Music “Notecard”—helps to offset production costs and expenses affiliated with staging dozens of performances by large choral, orchestra and band ensembles, renowned guest artists, and esteemed faculty artists. In the coming year our students will perform with pianist Jonathan Biss, members of the Seattle Symphony, and guitarist Bill Frisell, among other notable guests. They will participate in a rare staging of Oedipus, a musical theater drama by 20th century composer Harry Partch that will be performed in its entirety on the composer’s

handmade instruments. Our students will perform alongside opera professionals under the baton of Grammy winning conductor Stephen Stubbs in a production of Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas. And they will be inspired by their own teachers performing in various venues on campus and beyond. Your patronage helps to make possible this important part of our students’ UW education, and we appreciate your support. In 2016-17, we are again able to offer free admission to events in our season presented in the School of Music’s Brechemin Auditorium, thanks to the generosity of Mina B. Person, a member of the Brechemin family that has made so much possible at the School of Music for many years. Mina’s gift of music to our students and to all of you who attend our concert season events is a boon for which we remain deeply grateful. Thank you, Mina, and thanks to all of you. This concert season is for our students. It is also for you. Richard Karpen

UW MUSIC & PACIFIC MUSICWORKS Opera: Henry Purcell: Dido and Aeneas SUNDAY, APRIL 30, 2017 Laura Pudwell: Dido Brendan Tuohy: Aeneas Julia Benzinger: the Sorceress Ross Hauck: the Sailor Stephen Stubbs: conductor

Pacific MusicWorks is a resident organization of the University of Washington School of Music. Artistic Director Stephen Stubbs serves on the faculty as senior artist-in-residence.

In the late 17th century Henry Purcell had a musical life of Mozartian proportions – tragically short yet unbelievably brilliant. Synthesizing all the best elements of contemporary English, French and Italian music, he created the first enduring English operas. Unlike the larger semi-operas, Fairy Queen and King Arthur, (which include spoken texts between the musical numbers), Dido and Aeneas was his only entirely musical opera, and is his best-known and most beloved work for the stage. PMW’s orchestra and soloists will team with the University of Washington Chamber Singers to present a full length version of this beloved opera that includes Purcell’s sublime Welcome songs for the King’s return to court. MT 2 pm 
 $45 ($20 seniors/$20 non-UW students/$10 UW students;* Youth 5-17 admitted free with ticketed adult**) Not a Notecard Event

Sidlin, president and founder of The Defiant Requiem Foundation, conceived and created this concert-drama combining the music of Verdi with video testimony from survivors of the original Terezín chorus as well as footage from the 1944 Nazi propaganda film about Theresienstadt. The performance includes actors who speak the words of conductor Rafael Schächter and others. MT 7:30 pm $15 ($10 students/seniors) 206.543.4880
