Malambo is a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming, and song that originated in the seventeenth century in the South American pampas (lowland plains). 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
