Performance

Meadows Wind Ensemble: Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

When: 
Friday, November 13, 2015 - 7:30pm

This program takes its name from the 1908 song by vaudeville songwriter Jack Norworth, written on a piece of scrap paper while on a train bound for New York City. There will be “no joy in Mudville,” or Caruth Auditorium, for that matter, as the program will feature a performance of the baseball classic Casey at the Bat. Even though joy might be in short supply, there will be plenty of  “peanuts and cracker jack” to go ’round, as well as a seventh-inning stretch, complete with an organ sing-along of Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Price: 

$13 for adults, $10 for seniors, $7 for students, faculty & staff

Play: Macbeth by William Shakespeare

Directed by Michael Connolly
Considered one of Shakespeare’s darkest and most powerful works, the play illustrates the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. Scholar and author Marjorie Garber argues that Shakespeare’s work is so mutable that it always exists in the present. In fact, it’s been called the Shakespearean tragedy that best explains the power of the AMC blockbuster Breaking Bad. “Something wicked this way comes.”

Sunday, September 27, 2015 - 2:30pm

The program opens with Valses nobles et sentimentales (1911-12), a suite of “noble and sentimental” waltzes by Maurice Ravel combining lilting rhythms, sharp dissonances and elegant sensuality. Fountains of Rome (1916-17) by Ottorini Respighi, whose music is considered the culmination of the Italian symphonic tradition, follows; part of the composer’s acclaimed “Roman trilogy,” it includes four movements, each depicting one of Rome’s famous fountains at a different time of day.
