Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott

Title:Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott
Description:Eisenhower Auditorium - Center for the Performing Arts 814-863-0255 Cellist Yo-Yo Ma will appear at Penn State for only the third time when he performs in concert with pianist Kathryn Stott. Ma, whose career is defined by an insatiable desire to find musical connections across cultures, and Stott, a fixture on the international music scene for decades, have performed together for more than thirty years. Their collaborations include two Grammy Award-winning albums, Obrigado Brazil and Obrigado Brazil–Live in Concert. The pair’s most recent album is 2015’s Songs from the Arc of Life. “When it comes to artistic partnerships, there’s a lot to be said for the fireworks of musicians joining together for the first time,” writes an NPR critic. “But there’s another kind of collaboration that can yield profound pleasure: a recording with two artists who know each other deeply, in a relationship that has unfolded over years and even decades. That’s the case with world-famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott, who have been playing together since 1984. Over those many years, they’ve developed a wonderfully warm and mutually responsive musical partnership that has blossomed in performances that are both generous and incisive.” Ma’s discography includes more than 100 albums. Eighteen have earned Grammys. His most recent, Bach Trios, came out in May and is a collaboration with bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile. Sing Me Home, his 2016 recording with the Silk Road Ensemble, is a companion to the documentary film The Music of Strangers. Stott has performed globally as a soloist and a chamber musician since 1978, when she was a prize winner at the Leeds International Piano Competition. She is an exponent of tango and other Latin dance music. Her most recent solo release, Solitaires, explores French works for piano. She was recently appointed artistic director of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance.

Featuring an ensemble of thirteen world-class musicians and vocalists, the orchestra performs a musically precise, fresh, and exciting take on salsa. “The best thing at the Newport Jazz Festival was the Spanish Harlem Orchestra,” raves a critic for The New York Times. “They make you get up and dance, tap into the good-natured, communal spirit characteristic of salsa at its timeless best,” writes a Los Angeles Times reviewer. SHO, as the band is known to its fans, is dedicated to the sounds of the barrio. Its music is characterized by the raw, organic, and vintage soul of the genre. The band’s fifth album, Spanish Harlem Orchestra (2017), features guests Chick Corea and Joe Lovano. Each of the band’s previous recordings earned a Grammy nomination, with wins for Across 110th Street (2004) and United We Swing (2007). “Spanish Harlem Orchestra will be a bounty for both wallflowers and hipshakers,” writes a reporter for Time Out New York.

Description:Eisenhower Auditorium - 7:30 pm Tickets: Adult: $38 PSU Student: $15 Youth: $28 Japan’s Yamato challenges the possibilities of taiko drumming. The energetic group of mixed-gender percussionists captivates audiences of all ages with its blend of serious musicianship, theatrical staging, intense physicality, and comical excursions. Yamato will make its fourth appearance at Eisenhower Auditorium in its newest program, Chousensha – The Challengers. The show takes inspiration from the performers’ feelings about their lives and experiences of challenging their limits. It also offers an anthem of encouragement to viewers as they persevere with their own challenges. “Even the most urbane 21st-century sophisticate, whose veins flow with frothy latte and whose thumbs are adept only at swiping screens, cannot fail to respond to the exhilarating sounds created by Yamato …,” a reviewer for London’s The Stage writes about The Challengers.

After releasing albums on Blue Note Records for a decade, the trio made its debut on the Impulse! Label with 2016’s Notes from New York. The DownBeat five-star review of the album calls it “a masterclass in class.” Its 2017 follow-up, Uptown, Downtown, is Grammy nominated for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. In 2015, Charlap teamed with Bennett on The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern, which earned a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Album. “Bill Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved …,” writes a journalist for Time. “No matter how imaginative or surprising his take on a song is, he invariably zeroes in on its essence.” Charlap has been the artistic director of New York City’s Jazz in July Festival for thirteen seasons. He’s also produced concerts for JVC Jazz Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the Hollywood Bowl.

String Quartet ETHEL in Concert

Title:String Quartet ETHEL in Concert
Description: ETHEL will present new performances of its acclaimed show The River, an integral journey in instrumental virtuosity, song and storytelling. The tour comes in the wake of its 2016 NAMA-nominated release of the same title (Innova Recordings), and furthers ETHEL’s wildly successful nine-year collaboration with Native American musician, actor, writer, instrument builder and three-time GRAMMY® Award-winner Robert Mirabal. Here, ETHEL and Mirabal take inspiration from Water as the embodiment of the Spirit, and evoke the magic and majesty of “the river” which connects us all, with the live performance immersing the audience in a flow of music, narrative and ritual. The music of The River evokes timeless Native American traditions, re-imagined through the contemporary ear. The project has been featured by PRI’s The World, NPR’s Native America Calling, and, after making its premiere at the University of Washington, the Seattle Times wrote that the live show, “resides somewhere beyond the intersection of ceremony and show biz, at a place where multicultural collaboration becomes sacred art.” As delivered by these master performers, the effect is breathtaking, even ecstatic.”

Dorrance Dance - ETM: Double Down
Dates:Tuesday, February 27, 2018
Title:Dorrance Dance - ETM: Double Down
Description:Dorrance Dance honors tap dance’s history while pushing its rhythmic, technical, and conceptual boundaries. By incorporating other forms that have shaped American culture — such as street, club, and experimental dance — the company highlights the traditional elements of tap dance and its musical rhythms in a contemporary context. Founded in 2011 by artistic director and MacArthur “genius” Fellow Michelle Dorrance, the ensemble’s first performance earned a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for “blasting open our notions of tap.” ETM: Double Down, choreographed by Dorrance and company member Nicholas Van Young, is a 2016 evening-length work that uses electronic tap boards. The stage, in effect, becomes a musical instrument. The score is not just danced to but danced by the company. ETM, which stands for electronic tap music, features eight dancers and six musicians furiously exploring acoustic and digitally produced sounds. “Since the beginnings of tap dance, practitioners have been lugging around wooden boards, instruments used to drum upon with their feet,” writes a New York Times reviewer. “Now, in an era of electronic dance music, new possibilities beg to be explored. What if you plugged those boards into computers? That’s what Michelle Dorrance does with her troupe, Dorrance Dance, in ETM: Double Down, a fresh and innovative show … .”

It evolved from competitive duels among Argentine gauchos (South American cowboys) that tested agility, strength, and dexterity. It soon came to include what is now its hallmark, zapeteo, a fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. Malambo also features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras (throwing weapons made of intertwined cords and weighted with stones). Che Malambo, born from the heart of the gaucho tradition, is now thrilling audiences around the world with a new production created by director and choreographer Gilles Brinas.

Title:National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba
Description:Eisenhower Auditorium - March 20, 2018 Tickets available at cpa.psu.edu or 814-863-2055 The National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba, which has been pivotal in introducing music of its homeland to international audiences, will make its Penn State premiere in a Latin-flavored and dance-inspired program featuring Maurice Ravel’s Bolero — plus works by Manuel De Falla, Carlos Fariñas, and Amadeo Roldán. Yekwon Sunwoo, gold-medal winner of the 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, will perform Sergei Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43, as featured soloist with the orchestra. Sunwoo, the first South Korean to win the prestigious competition, is a graduate of Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music. “The National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba can play symphonies by Beethoven and Mendelssohn, and play them well,” writes a reviewer for the Tampa Bay Times. “But what is special is when the musicians make like a big dance band from the Tropicana, the legendary nightclub in Havana, and play classical music with an Afro-Cuban beat.” Founded in 1960, the orchestra covers an immense symphonic and chamber repertoire ranging from Baroque to contemporary music. The ensemble has toured to the United States, Russia, Poland, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, and other countries. Music Director Enrique Pérez Mesa, a native of Cuba and a graduate of its National School of Arts, has led performances in leading concert halls on three continents. The Grammy Award nominee has also recorded music for Cuban and Spanish films. Mr. Sunwoo appears by arrangement with the Cliburn.

Danish String Quartet
Dates:Friday, April 06, 2018
Title:Danish String Quartet
Description:Schwab Auditorium, April 6, 2018 at 7:30 pm Tickets available at cpa.psu.edu or 814-863-0255 In the 1990s, as children, three of them met at a summer music camp in the Danish countryside. The youngest students in attendance, they soon became friends and continued to get together to play music in the years that followed. Two decades later, these Scandinavian string players — three Danes and a Norwegian who joined the mix in 2008 — constitute “one of the best quartets before the public today” (Washington Post). In its Penn State debut, the Danish String Quartet — violinists Frederik Øland and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen, violist Asbjørn Nørgaard, and cellist Fredrik Schøyen Sjölin — will perform Béla Bartók’s String Quartet No. 1; Ludwig van Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 7, Op. 59, No. 1; and a selection of Nordic folk tunes from the ensemble’s albums Wood Works (2014) and Last Leaf (2017). “In the talented hands of the Danish String Quartet these ‘Wood Works’ — traditional Nordic folksongs and dances — are buffed and polished to a glossy concert-hall sheen,” writes a Gramophone reviewer. Winner of the London (now Wigmore Hall) International String Quartet Competition in 2009, the ensemble has earned a reputation for its integrated sound, impeccable intonation, judicious balance, and “rampaging energy” (The New Yorker). The quartet’s ECM Records debut, Adès/Nørgård/Abrahamsen (2016), earned a five-star rating from a reviewer for The Guardian, who praises the album as “an exacting program requiring grace, grit, and clarity.” “Do not lose track of this group,” writes a Boston Globe critic. “Even by today’s high standards, it offers something very special.” Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance.

Description:Please join the Downtown Cumberland area community and businesses on Tuesday July 3rd for a free pre-holiday Fourth of July celebration and Appalachian Party on the Downtown Cumberland Mall with The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers on The McCoury Family Stage from 6 – 9 PM. The annual RED, WHITE & BLUEGRASS celebration in Downtown is a part of Burgmeier’s Hauling Discover Downtown Cumberland and is hosted by the Downtown Development Commission. “We just want people to come downtown Tuesday evening (or stay downtown when they get off work) and have a good time with a little bluegrass music. I’ve been telling people that this is a flip flop, overalls, pickup truck and hula hoop kind of event, and all are welcome. The bigger the pickup truck, the better. They can bring a picnic dinner and find a place on the bricks for a blanket and chairs, or they can dine and shop at one of their favorite restaurants or cafes. Although there will be some “white chairs” set up for the elderly and those that need to sit – we would like to see people up dancing, spinning their hula hoops and spending time with others in the downtown community” says Dave Love, Chair of the Promotions and Events Committee of the DDC. “We asked The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers to come help us celebrate this event because they are a growingly renowned bluegrass band with regional and local Appalachian roots.” says Love. Hailing from the mountain towns of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland, the Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from old-time, bluegrass, jamgrass, rockabilly, and swing music to create their own brand of high energy Appalachian Bluegrass. Their goal is simple: write good songs, honor the music, have fun, and take it to the road. Gary Antol (songwriter, guitar, vocals) and Libby Eddy (fiddle, vocals) formed the band in 2014. Since then they have released several CDs including The Lane Change (2015), White Lightning Road (2016), Live at the Blue Plate Special (2016), Sleep Creek Harfest (2017), and Poison River (2018). The powerful songwriting, mesmerizing vocals and hard-driving rhythms of the Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers have earned them a growing national following. An enormously popular band on the festival circuit, The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers performed at the Emerging Artist Showcase at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in 2016, to high acclaim. The band has also performed at Baygrass Bluegrass, Great Blue Heron, Smoked Country Jam, Hickory Fest, and many more. Television appearances include WGN America’s “Outsiders”; Live from Center Stage in Cape Cod; and KDKA Pittsburgh. WDVX (Knoxville) has twice featured the band on their Blue Plate Special show. The band will also be showcased at the IBMA World of Bluegrass – Bluegrass Ramble in Raleigh, NC this September. The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers have opened for The Steep Canyon Rangers, Town Mountain, The Black Lillies, Pure Prairie League, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, Larry Keel, Jeff Austin, and Cabinet. Love, who also operates Azad’s of Cumberland on N. Centre Street in Downtown, will be thanking all of the sponsors of Discover Downtown Cumberland at 8 PM during the event by drawing the name of a sponsor to win a hand-made Persian rugs from his shop.

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"
Dates:Wednesday, October 03, 2018
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. Including Hotel, the Center for the Performing Arts has co-commissioned three Cirque Éloize productions. Adult $42 University Park Student $15 18 and Younger $32

Violinist Joshua Bell
Dates:Thursday, October 11, 2018
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. Adult $42 University Park Student $15 18 and Younger $32

Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society
Dates:Tuesday, October 23, 2018
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

Escher String Quartet
Dates:Tuesday, October 30, 2018
Title:Escher String Quartet
Description:Escher String Quartet Gilles Vonsattel, pianist 7:30 pm Tuesday, October 30, 2018 Schwab Auditorium Escher String Quartet—an ensemble championed by Emerson String Quartet, Itzhak Perlman, and Pinchas Zukerman—makes its Penn State debut in a program featuring Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23. 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.
