Veronica Swift with The Emmet Cohen Trio

Title:Veronica Swift with The Emmet Cohen Trio
Description:Veronica Swift with The Emmet Cohen Trio 7:30 pm Thursday, September 20, 2018 Schwab Auditorium Before graduating with a degree in jazz vocal performance from the University of Miami, Veronica Swift had already taken second place (2015) in the influential Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition. She also had previously recorded three albums (two by age 13), headlined the Telluride Jazz Festival, and performed in Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Lincoln Center. Swift, who moved to New York City after college, sings most Saturday nights at the renowned Birdland jazz club. Her repertoire is built on the Great American Songbook, plus bebop and vocalese classics, but she is also passionate about music from the 1920s and 1930s. The vocalist’s parents, jazz singer and educator Stephanie Nakasian and the late jazz pianist Hod O’Brien, took her on tour when she was younger. She sang with her family at Blues Alley in Washington, D.C., the Jazz Standard in New York City, The Great Waters Music Festival in New Hampshire, and other venues. She also has appeared on stage with Jon Hendricks, Esperanza Spalding, Joe Lovano, Danilo Perez, Benny Green, and others. “It’s not often you hear one so young interpret the sounds of a seasoned jazz performer and make everything she touches her own,” writes a reviewer for Variety. “That’s Veronica Swift.” The vocalist is “an adept lyrical interpreter” who delivers “a master class on space and dynamics,” according to a JazzTimes writer. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance. Adult $38 University Park Student $15 18 and Younger $28

Cantus "Alone Together"
Dates:Tuesday, September 25, 2018
Title:Cantus "Alone Together"
Description:Cantus “Alone Together” 7:30 pm Tuesday, September 25, 2018 Pasquerilla Spiritual Center Cantus, which last performed at Penn State in 2014, has been called “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States.” The group returns to perform Alone Together, an introspective look at what it means to connect in our modern world. By almost any measure, our ability to communicate has never been easier or more advanced. Yet, as the world grows exponentially smaller with new technologies, the rifts between nations, among communities, and in individual relationships only seem to widen. Exploring the struggle to build meaningful connection in a world that has never been more connected, Alone Together is anchored by a multi-movement setting of a Walt Whitman poem, “We Two,” by Steven Sametz. The program is also informed by David Lang’s modern exploration of yearning in his “Manifesto.” The world premiere of a multi-movement piece by Grammy Award-winning composer Libby Larsen, co-commissioned by the Center for the Performing Arts through its membership in the Music Accord consortium, helps to celebrate a reaffirmation of our humanity through communication and a recognition of our universal need for understanding and acceptance. Alone Together also includes music by Jennifer Higdon, William Grant Still, Halsey Stevens, Simon and Garfunkel, Dave Matthews, Ludwig van Beethoven, Lennon/McCartney, Pentatonix, Elder Joseph Brackett (arranged by Stephen Caracciolo), Leonard Bernstein, and Gabriel Kahane. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance, but artists will engage in conversation with audience members after the concert.

Cirque Éloize "Hotel"

Title:Cirque Éloize "Hotel"
Description:7:30 pm Wednesday, October 3, 2018 Eisenhower Auditorium For its twenty-fifth anniversary, Cirque Éloize presents a touching, poetic, one-of-a-kind creation. Hotel is the story of a place and the travelers who pass through it. It’s a stopover where lives intersect, collide, and juxtapose for brief times to generate tales and memories. Acrobatics, theatre, dance, and live music draw spectators into a colorful, timeless world. Avant-garde stage design, inspired by the elegance of the great hotels, carries the narrative. All that remains is to enter through the lobby door and get swept away by the grandeur and poetry of Hotel. Cirque Éloize (serk el-WUHZ), based in Montreal, made its Center for the Performing Arts premiere in 1995. The contemporary circus company will be performing for the sixth time at Eisenhower Auditorium.

Violinist Joshua Bell

Title:Violinist Joshua Bell
Description:7:30 pm Thursday, October 11, 2018 Eisenhower Auditorium “Mr. Bell,” writes a New York Times critic, “doesn’t stand in anyone’s shadow.” The Mr. Bell in question is Joshua Bell, one of the most acclaimed violinists of our time. Bell makes his first Penn State appearance in more than seven years when he performs in recital with pianist. An exclusive Sony Classical artist, the violinist has recorded more than forty albums in his career as a soloist, a chamber musician, and a conductor. He has earned Grammy, Mercury, Gramophone, and Echo Klassik awards and is the recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize. Since 2011, Bell has been the music director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. He is the only person to hold that post since Sir Neville Marriner created the British orchestra in 1958. Bell, who has performed for three U.S. presidents, has recorded with artists from various genres, including Chris Botti, Chick Corea, Gloria Estefan, Renée Fleming, Plácido Domingo, Alison Krauss, Jeremy Denk, Steven Isserlis, and Edgar Meyer. A fourteen-CD set of Bell’s Sony recording highlights is scheduled for release in August. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance.

Ballet Hispanico
Dates:Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Title:Ballet Hispanico
Description:Ballet Hispánico 7:30 pm Wednesday, October 17, 2018 Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State “Ballet Hispánico’s artistic director Eduardo Vilaro has said that the troupe’s title notwithstanding, the company is ‘a new envisioning of American modern dance,’” writes a Boston Globe critic. “It’s an intriguing idea, particularly since a main mission of the New York-based group is to present dance through a Latino lens.” In its first appearance at Eisenhower Auditorium since 1993, Ballet Hispánico’s lens will focus solely on dances by Latina choreographers. Founded in 1970 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan by Tina Ramirez, Ballet Hispánico has become a catalyst for bringing communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures from around the world. The company of fifteen, representing a number of nationalities, brings to the stage training in modern and classical dance plus ballet. The Cuban-born Vilaro, a former Ballet Hispánico dancer, has since 2009 infused the company with a vision of social equality, cultural identity, and quality arts education. “Ballet Hispánico has been a gem of the New York dance scene for years, and, in their season premiere at the Joyce Theater [in April], the company proved as strong as ever,” writes a Village Voice reviewer. “Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro gives his troupe … opportunities to work with choreographers from around the world, producing contemporary works of bold technique that illuminate concerns of Latino/a identity and resiliency.” Following the performance, Ballet Hispánico artists will participate in a discussion with audience members.

Title:Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society
Description:Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society 7:30 pm Tuesday, October 23, 2018 Eisenhower Auditorium Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, one of the most celebrated ensembles in contemporary jazz, makes its second appearance at Penn State to perform works selected from its first decade of innovative big band repertoire. “It’s maximalist music of impressive complexity and immense entertainment value, in your face and then in your head,” writes a reviewer for The Village Voice. A Newsweek writer suggests that “for a wholly original take on big band’s past, present, and future, look to Darcy James Argue.” The Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based composer and bandleader made headlines with the release of Secret Society’s Infernal Machines (2009), which along with Brooklyn Babylon (2013) and Real Enemies (2016) was nominated for a Grammy Award. A New York Times critic praises the most recent album as “wildly discursive, twitchily allusive, a work of furious ambition … deeply in tune with our present moment.” A London Jazz News writer calls the release “a mind-blowing example of truly great, era-defining jazz composition, and a contender for album of the year.” Secret Society tours throughout North America, Europe, and South America. The eighteen-member band has also performed four times at the Newport Jazz Festival. Adult $48 University Park Student $15 18 and Younger $38

Pianist Gilles Vonsattel joins the quartet to perform the world premiere of a work, co-commissioned by the Center for the Performing Arts through its membership in the Music Accord consortium, by San Francisco-born composer Anthony Cheung. The five musicians also perform Brahms’ Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34. The Escher ensemble, formed in 2005, has earned applause for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet is one of the few chamber ensembles to win the Avery Fisher Career Grant. The quartet has performed with a number of classical music luminaries, but it also has collaborated with jazz artists such as Joshua Redman, Kurt Elling, and Paquito D’Rivera. In its hometown of New York City, the quartet serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The ensemble—violinists Adam Barnett-Hart and Danbi Um, violist Pierre Lapointe, and cellist Brook Speltz—is also quartet in residence at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Vonsattel, winner of the Naumburg and Geneva piano competitions, is a musician of versatility and originality. The Swiss-born American artist, who displays a sense of adventure and musical curiosity, performs an enormous range of repertoire. An Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient, Vonsattel in recent years has made his Boston Symphony, Tanglewood, and San Francisco Symphony debuts. A New York Times critic describes his most recent New York City recital as “tightly conceived and passionately performed … a study in intensity.” Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance, but artists will engage in a conversation with audience members after the concert.

Description:"Diary of a Worm, a Spider, and a Fly" Dallas Children’s Theater 4:00 pm Sunday, November 11, 2018 Eisenhower Auditorium This coolest-ever rock-and-roll romp of three unlikely friends captures the droll humor and whimsy of the picture book series written by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Harry Bliss. Insects rule in the diaries of unlikely best friends Worm, Spider, and Fly. Worm eats his homework, Fly believes she has superpowers, and Spider can’t wait to grow up and molt. Promoting eco-consciousness, earth science, and tolerance of others, Diary of a Worm, a Spider, and a Fly—with book, music, and lyrics by Joan Cushing—is a joyful and hip musical exploration of the world outside. Audience members might just find that a bug’s life is not all that different from their own. “The raucous, joyous show rapping spiritedly at Dallas Children’s Theater offers an intoxicating mix of educational and entertainment fare …,” writes a Dallas Morning News reviewer. “It’s a memorable biology lesson and uplifting message for kids seeking their own special role in the world.” The National Endowment for the Arts designated Dallas Children’s Theater, named by Time as one of the top five children’s theatre companies in the United States, as an American Masterpieces Touring Artist.

BEAUTIFUL—THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL
Dates:Tuesday, February 19, 2019 - Saturday, February 23, 2019
Title:BEAUTIFUL—THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL
Description: Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ’n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. BEAUTIFUL—THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation. Featuring a stunning array of beloved songs written by Goffin/King and Mann/Weil, including “I Feel the Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got a Friend” and the title song, BEAUTIFUL has a book by Tony Award-nominee and Academy Award-nominated writer Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni, and choreography by Josh Prince. The show took home two 2014 Tonys and the 2015 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.
