Friday, April 9th

  • The Woodward Guest Artist Concert: Nicola Melville and Jill Dawe, pianists; Dave Hagedorn and Matt Barber, percussionists.
    • Faculty pianist Nicola Melville is joined by guests Jill Dawe, Dave Hagedorn, and Matt Barber for an extravagant evening of American and French music for piano and percussion. The Latin-American flair and pathos of William Bolcom’s “Recuerdos” for two pianos, the quirky “Gymnasium Marches” of Twin Cities composer/artist Steven Rydberg, and the fun and ironic edginess of Michael Daugherty’s “Lounge Lizards” for two pianos and percussion are intermingled with the evocative elegance of Debussy’s Petite Suite and Ravel’s “Alborada del gracioso” (arranged for two marimbas).
    • 8:00 pm, Concert Hall

Friday, September 24th

  • Christopher U. Light Lecture and Concert: The Bad Plus (Ticketed event)
    • Christopher U. Light Lectureship Lecture and Concert: The Bad Plus. Called "audacious and rule breaking," over the last ten years. The Bad Plus has, in the words of the New York Times, been "better than anyone at mixing the sensibilities of post-60s jazz and indie rock." Bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and percussionist David King have broken down the walls of jazz convention and shown that the jazz tradition of innovation is still very much alive. Their nine CDs constitute a body of work representing collective music making at its most compelling.
    • 7:00 pm, Concert Hall
