UMS Night School: 100 Years Of UMS At Hill Auditorium: Session 7: Yo-Yo Ma, Classical Crossover, And the Future Of Hill
Monday February 18, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Classical music has been a driving force in the life of Hill Auditorium, but the field of classical music has changed significantly in the past 25 years and continues to evolve as audiences and artists alike change their expectations for live concert performances.
Session 7 explores the ways in which classical artists like Yo-Yo Ma have "crossed over" and created broader and more diverse concert audiences. We'll also explore how new technologies are changing the concert hall itself.
Professor Mark Clague joins us again as host and resident scholar.
