Upcoming Performances

The Department of Music is excited to continue to present high-quality student and faculty performances during this unusual time. 

The Department’s current plans are to host 2021-2022 performances in person.  Select concerts or recitals may also be live-streamed. Each scheduled livestreamed concert will be assigned its own link, which you may access from your computer or other device. Recorded videos will be accessible from this page as they become available.

 

Notice to in-person audiences:

Our performers are working hard to perform for you and are happy they can do so! Playing an instrument or singing requires a great deal of breath support. Even though we are masked, we are breathing deeply and exhaling with great energy. Respectfully, we request that all members of the audience please consider masking – for your safety, the safety of other audience members, and that of the performers. Thank you so much.

 

Department of Music Reception Policy (Fall 2021):

In the interest of health and safety for the Buchanan Center’s shared musical community, the Department of Music will not hold intermission or post-performance receptions during fall semester 2021; this includes receptions for student recitals. Post-performance receptions may be held out-of-doors or at an off-site location. Receptions planned outside on the Buchanan Center property will be the responsibility of the performer or their family and friends to set up, break down, and clean up the reception site.

We hope you are able to join us for some, or all of our performances this year!

In person at the BCPA Concert Hall

UW Jazz Festival is pleased to present its headliner concert featuring the cooperative jazz sextet “One For All,” as well as the Wyoming All-State Jazz Band with Peter Sommer, tenor saxophone.

The UW Jazz Festival combines great music with outstanding and positive jazz education to encourage the next generation of jazz musicians. The festival offers middle and high school jazz ensembles non-competitive performance opportunities, an outstanding line up of guest artists and clinicians, and concerts.

One For All was formed in 1996 in NYC at the legendary jazz club Augie’s (now Smoke). Collectively, the band has forged a powerful, yet sleek sound which has become synonymous with hard-swinging, straight-ahead modern jazz. Individually, each member of One For All has earned a sterling reputation not only as a soloist/bandleader (via solo recordings and tours), but as a top-shelf, first-call player on the NYC scene.

Triveni: An Evening of Classical Indian Instrumental Music

April 2, 7:30 p.m.
Arts and Science Auditorium

Leading Indian classical exponents of their respective instruments Zakir Hussain, Kala Ramnath, and Jayanthi Kumaresh come together as a trio, TRIVENI.

Triveni is the mythical site of the union of three sacred rivers in India, and the name aptly represents the confluence of the varied musicalities which the three maestros bring to this collaboration.

A hallmark of Zakir Hussain’s iconic career has been his ground-breaking work at the forefront of musical dialogues between Hindustani (North Indian) and Carnatic (South Indian) music.

With Kala Ramnath, an innovative representative of North Indian raga tradition, Jayanthi Kumaresh, the leading exponent of the ancient South Indian veena, and Zakir Hussain seamlessly stitching North and South Indian rhythm traditions to provide a bridge for veena and violin to meet, TRIVENI promises to be a fluent, joyous and entirely original musical conversation.

uwso-may-5.jpg

UW Symphony: An American in Paris

May 5, 7:30 p.m.
In person from the BCPA Concert Hall

Livstream recording of several pieces available on UW Music's YouTube channel.

This year’s UWSO theme has been “Joy and Reflection.” When conductor Michael Griffith wrote that last summer, he thought the pandemic was almost over, so audiences were joyful. But we were also struggling with what we’d been through, thus, “Reflection.” At least in Laramie, we’re in a lull between surges. So the orchestra hopes to see a great turnout for their varied and fascinating closing concert, An American in Paris.

The big closing piece is a huge favorite in the orchestral sphere, George Gershwin’s An American in Paris. What joyful music! By turns jazzy, bluesy, and bright, it even includes Parisian taxi horns! You’ll hear the bustle of Parisian life, the loneliness of our expat hero or heroine, and their exciting life in this wonderful city. You might know it from the wonderful MGM film of the same name, where Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron dance one of Hollywood’s great ballets. But be aware: the music came first, the film followed.

The guest soloist is the wonderful young pianist Andrew Staupe. He’s chosen the 1934 Concerto in One Movement by the African-American composer Florence Price. Ms. Price’s music has only recently become generally known, and the UWSO is thrilled to bring it to Laramie. The music is engaging and attractive, with a wonderful closing section based on a juba, a folk dance popular in the years before the Civil War. It sounds a bit like a Scott Joplin rag, highly syncopated (e.i., with strong notes between the beats, extending into the next beat). Other sections are more dramatic or lyrical, a bit more like late-Romantic music.

The UW Symphony also excited to be one of four orchestra premiering Jesse Ayers’ Shinkansen. Dr. Griffith has family in Japan, and has to ride their incredible bullet trains to see his grandchildren – and Shinkansen is what they call these 186 m.p.h. wonders. As you’d expect, the music is fast!

Last year Dr. G was reading a biography of George Szell, who conducted The Cleveland Orchestra for decades. In it, he ran across a piece he’d never heard of: William Grant Still’s 1943 In Memoriam: The Colored Soldiers Who Died for Democracy. Still was the leading Black composer of his generation, best known for his Afro-American Symphony. George Szell believed in the piece so much, when the Cleveland Orchestra toured the Soviet Union in 1965, he made it an important part of their repertoire. He also performed it when he was a guest conductor of the Boston Symphony. Of course this piqued Dr. Griffith’s curiosity. He became familiar with it, and decided to include it on this concert.

Mr. Still wrote it for the New York Philharmonic during WW II, one of a series of commissions commemorating those who lost their lives in that terrible war. Of course, as Still’s title so eloquently shows, he chose to make a more specific statement with this short piece. Musically it moves back and forth between distant military fanfares and an African-American Spiritual.

The initial plan was to present a program all by American composers. However, the UWSO is adding one additional short piece: Valentin Silvestrov’s Prayer for Ukraine. Silvestrov is today’s leading Ukrainian composer, and he wrote it as for choir in 2014. Only weeks ago the Bamberg Symphony in Germany commissioned an orchestral version, which they posted onto YouTube. Dr. Griffith came across it, and was tremendously moved. The UW Symphony is one of only a few orchestras in the world performing Prayer for Ukraine, which will start the concert.

Andrew Staupe, Piano

May 6, 7:30 p.m.
In person from the BCPA Concert Hall

Guest pianist Andrew Staupe, who will also perform with the UW Symphony Orchestra on May 5, will perform an eclectic program of piano music, including works by composers John Bull, Germaine Tailleferre, Clara Schumann, Frédéric Chopin, Ottorino Respighi, and Franz Schubert.

Staupe is emerging as one of the distinctive voices in a new generation of pianists. As soloist, he has performed with many major orchestras across the United States and toured extensively in Europe, including with the Baltimore Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Houston Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, the George Enescu Philharmonic in Romania, the Orquestra Filarmónica de Bogotá in Colombia, and many others.

He has performed in Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Steinway Hall in New York, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Rachmaninov Hall in Moscow, the Schumann Haus in Leipzig, and the Salle Cortot in Paris.  He has also been a featured guest on American Public Media’s “Performance Today” and Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion.”

An avid chamber musician, Staupe has jammed with Bobby McFerrin, played Tangos with the Assad Brothers, toured with Chee-Yun, and collaborated with some of the most distinguished artists today. He is also deeply passionate about performing contemporary music and has premiered a large number of new works.

brahms-icon.png

Brahms Requiem

May 7, 2022, 7:30 p.m.
In person from the BCPA Concert Hall

Dr. Holly Dalrymple and Dr. Brian C. Murray, conductors

All UW Choirs present a masterwork of the choral canon, Ein deutsches Requiem, op. 45 by Johannes Brahms, with two pianos featuring Nathália Kato and Emily Alley.

“Ein Deutsches Requiem” is one of Brahms’ most well-known and beloved works, a work of consolation and hope offered in the German vernacular language; a requiem for all people.

It follows a set liturgy and is a Catholic musical response and petition for the soul of the deceased. Brahms chose to deviate from the texts of a traditional requiem and instead crafted scriptures from the Luther Bible that would be a solace for those left behind.

We hope you will join us for this fantastic musical experience!
