UMS Night School: 100 Years Of UMS At Hill Auditorium: Session 6: Sing Out: Soloists At Hill

Monday February 4, 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.

Musical luminaries have lit up the stage at Hill for over 100 years. In Session 6, we explore some of the great soloists (like Vladimir Horowitz, Leontyne Price, Enrico Caruso, Cecilia Bartoli, and Sergei Rachmaninoff) that have cemented UMS's identity as a top-notch, world-class performing arts presenter. This event is collaboration between UMS, Ann Arbor District Library and the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance.

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.
