Meadows Wind Ensemble: Showtime!

When: 
Friday, March 2, 2018 - 7:30pm

This can’t-miss program will feature music from stage musicals and a newer work, “Baby Face Nelson and the Femme Fatale,” that is based on film noir-style scoring. “Little Threepenny Suite” is an arrangement of composer Kurt Weill’s larger Threepenny Opera for a chamber ensemble, replacing voices with other instruments. “Baby Face Nelson and the Femme Fatale,” by Joseph Thalken, is an affectionate, slightly tongue-in-cheek tribute to the noir film genre that larger-than-life characters like the real Baby Face Nelson inspired.

How Van Cliburn Got to Moscow

When: 
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 - 7:00pm

Danielle Fosler-Lussier, Ohio State University School of Music

Van Cliburn’s 1958 victory in the first International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition was a legendary Cold War moment. Only 23 years old, Cliburn was thrust into the spotlight as a musician, but also as an emblem of the cultural competition between the United States and the Soviet Union. This presentation explains how both government and private efforts helped get Cliburn to Moscow, and the stakes of his performance on the world stage.
