Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas are one of the cornerstones of the classical music repertoire. In a series of eight 90-minute lectures, Kevin Korsyn, professor of music theory, will explore these works in depth while using them to illustrate general principles about how to listen to music. Korsyn will perform all musical examples himself at the keyboard, bringing the music to life. This is a course for people who are passionate about classical music and eager to learn more about it, but who have not necessarily had any advanced technical training or taken any college-level music courses.

Don Chisholm Jazz Vocal Masterclass: Sunny Wilkinson

3:00pm, Stearns Building, Cady Room

10/23/2016 @ 3:00 PM
12/11/2016 @ 4:00 PM

Jazz vocalist Sunny Wilkinson and pianist Ellen Rowe work with U-M jazz vocalists and their accompanists.

A well-respected vocal teacher, Sunny Wilkinson is also a versatile jazz singer with a wide range. She started out singing in church choirs, and went to Arizona State University on a choral scholarship, playing trombone and singing with a pop/jazz group on weekends. She discovered jazz during that era and has since sung with the Count Basie Orchestra (as a guest), Rob McConnell's Boss Brass, Bill Watrous, Marvin Stamm and, most often, with her own small combos. Wilkinson has also worked in the studios, as a background singer, as an educator and has recorded sets for California Breeze and Positive Music in the late '80s as a leader. Free - no tickets required

Percussion Ensemble

4:00pm, Earl V. Moore Building, Hankinson Rehearsal Hall

The Percussion Ensemble’s first concert of the year is framed around both canonic and recent works for percussion quartet, quintet, and sextet. A huge variety of percussive chamber works will take the listener from the raw power of Xenakis' multi-drums, to a millennial's take on pristine bell sounds. Both works frame a listening experience around rhythmic and melodic interplay across beats, grooves, modes, melody, and meter. Works by Iannis Xenakis, Evan Chapman, Dinuk Wijeratne, Toru Takemitsu, and Per Andreassen will be featured. Free - no tickets required
