7:30 pm de Mille Theatre

Experience cutting-edge dance first hand as contemporary dance students

choreograph for their classmates in utterly original, vibrant new works.

Raw, youthful, and spontaneous, Emerging Choreographers presents the

next generation of creativity in dance.

3 (Thurs) UNCSA JAZZ ENSEMBLE

$15 regular and $13 for students with valid ID  

12 (Sat) UNCSA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: WAGNER AND HIS WORLD

7:30 pm Stevens Center

There was nothing virtuoso Franz Liszt could not master at the piano. He

combined his pianistic skills with his restless pen to compose Totentanz, a

fantasy on the Dies Irae chant. Richard Wagner, Liszt’s future son-in-law,

changed the face of opera with his many mature works. To celebrate his

bicentennial, the concert closes with the “Prelude and Liebestod” from his

opera Tristan and Isolde. Faculty-artist Dmitri Shteinberg is soloist. UNCSA

alumna Carter Scott joins the orchestra as Isolde.

$15 regular and $13 for students with valid ID  

13 (Sun) GUEST ARTIST: ANN SCHEIN, PIANO

2 pm Watson Hall  (Note: 2 pm is the correct time. The print calendar is wrong.)

A student of legendary pianists Dame Myra Hess, Mieczyslaw Munz and

Arthur Rubinstein, Ann Schein continues a Romantic tradition of pianism

which is all but forgotten. As The Washington Post noted: “Thank heaven

for Ann Schein who simply reaches right into the heart of whatever she is

playing – and creates music so powerful you cannot tear yourself away.”

SPECIAL EVENT PRICING: $18 Regular / $15 Students

15 (Tues) CROSSING OVER 

(Please note that the print calendar is wrong. Oct. 15 is a Tuesday, not a Saturday. The concert is on TUESDAY, Oct. 15.)

7:30 pm Watson Hall

Mezzo-soprano Janine Hawley and tenor Greg Walter are crossing over

the forbidden Broadway line with an evening of musical theater classics

interspersed with Schubert, Debussy, Quilter and others of a more

“legitimate” fare. Broadway conductor Kevin Stites joins them at the piano

for a rather highbrow cabaret evening.

16-20 (Wed-Sat) SERJEANT MUSGRAVE’S DANCE

7:30 pm / 19 & 20 (Sat & Sun) 2 pm Catawba Theatre

Directed by Bob Francesconi/Studio 4

John Arden’s classic 1959 drama tells the story of a small group of soldiers

returned from a colonial war, who, under the guise of a recruiting trip, try to

convince an indifferent public to oppose the conflict, only to find that their

own motivations complicate their journey.

$15 regular and $13 for students with valid ID  

19 (Sat)  HINDEMITH LIVES!

7:30 pm Watson Hall

Fifty years following his passing, Paul Hindemith shines in the hearts of

soloists and chamber musicians around the world. UNCSA woodwind,

brass, string, and piano faculty plus friends celebrate his anniversary with

a diverse sample of his best-known works, preceded by a 7 pm affectionate

lecture/slideshow of his remarkable life.

$15 regular and $13 for students with valid ID  

22 (Tues)  WATSON HALL 10TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATORY

CONCERT: IDA BIELER AND ALLISON GAGNON IN RECITAL

7:30 pm Watson Hall

With “fire and philosophy”(as noted by the newspaper Frankfurter

Allgemeine Zeitung), Ida Bieler (violin) and Allison Gagnon (piano) present

sonatas of Mendelssohn and Debussy, the passionate last sonata of

Brahms, and two lovely From my Homeland pieces by Smetana. Alumna Ida

Bieler wishes to dedicate her first concert as a faculty member at UNCSA to

the memories of Ruggiero Ricci and Marc Gottlieb.

$15 regular and $13 for students with valid ID  

23-27 KING HEDLEY II

(Wed-Sat) 7:30 pm / (Sat & Sun) 2 pm Patrons Theatre

The penultimate play in August Wilson’s cycle of works about the black

experience in America in the 20th Century, King Hedley depicts an ex-con

struggling to find his way in 1980s America.

$15 regular and $13 for students with valid ID  

24 (Thurs)  nu

7:30 pm Watson Hall

Focused on works of the 21st century, UNCSA’s contemporary music

ensemble, nu, performs today’s most exciting music by established and

emerging composers. Saxton Rose directs a select group of School of Music

students on this varied program.

$15 regular and $13 for students with valid ID  

26 (Sat)  RHYTHM & BRASS: ON YOUR RADIO DIAL

7:30 pm Watson Hall

“Beyond Category” was a term the great Duke Ellington used as the highest

form of praise for those artists who transcended normal boundaries. Since

its inaugural season in 1993, Rhythm & Brass has lived up to the ideal of

a musical presentation that is not bound by time, geography or culture.

Rhythm & Brass fearlessly weaves original works and the music of J.S.

Bach, Claude Debussy, Duke Ellington, and of course Pink Floyd into a

single concert experience.

SPECIAL EVENT PRICING: $20 Regular / $18 Students

27 (Sun)  ROBERT LINDGREN MEMORIAL DANCE CONCERT

2 pm Freedman Theatre

The School of Dance presents a memorial performance for Robert Lindgren,

the Canadian-born dancer who performed with many ballet companies

before becoming the founding Dean of Dance at UNCSA. Alumni and other

guests will perform to celebrate his legacy.
