UMS Night School: 100 Years Of UMS At Hill Auditorium: Session 4: Jazz In the Hall

Monday January 14, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

What was it like to be in Hill Auditorium in 1913? This season, Night School focuses on 100 years of UMS at Hill Auditorium and illuminates the special history behind the great performers and performances that have shaped our community. Professor Mark Clague joins us again as host and resident scholar.

Session 4 will explore UMS's rich history of jazz performances at Hill Auditorium, including the UMS's upcoming tribute to Jazz from Detroit's Cass Corridor.

These 90-minute "classes" combine conversation, interactive exercises, and lectures with genre experts to draw you into the themes behind each performance. Sessions are designed to both deepen your knowledge of the performing arts and connect you with other audience members. This event is collaboration between UMS, Ann Arbor District Library and the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
