UMS Night School: Explore RENEGADE - Session 1: "Einstein On The Beach" & Hamburg Symphony Orchestra
Monday January 9, 2012: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
UM's University Musical Society has scheduled a musical series titled "Renegade" for this season. The series focuses on thought-leaders and game-changers in the performing arts. The AADL is hosting three sessions of UMS Night School that will examine the musical pieces featured in the "Renegade" program.
This Session 1 of UMS Night School will focus on the upcoming "Einstein on the Beach: An Opera in Four Acts" and the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra's version of Messiaen's "From the Canyons to the Stars."
Participants will be provided a presentation by a genre expert, an interactive exercise to draw the audience into the themes behind the performance, and a takeaway reading to enjoy.
This session will be hosted by Prof. Mark Clague, Associate Professor of Musicology and Director of Research at the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
