MICHIGAN CHAMBER PLAYERS - March 17, 2019
Britton Recital Hall
University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance
4:00 pm
FREE
Igor Stravinsky is celebrated as one of the most influential composers of all time and a trio of his ballets (Firebird, Petrouchka, Rite of Spring) changed the course of music in the twentieth century. Between these musical monuments, he tinkered with his compositional process in delightfully experimental chamber works. Professor of bassoon Jeffrey Lyman and 20 of his SMTD colleagues offer a program of these miniature masterpieces for voices and instruments from one, two, four, up to eight players. From early works like the Three Pieces for Clarinet and the Three Pieces for String Quartet through his very last composition The Owl & the Pussycat, you'll get a virtual behind-the-scenes tour of Stravinsky's creative process.

Performers include Danielle Belen and Matt Albert, violin; Joachim Angster, viola; Leo Singer, cello; Amy I-Lin Cheng, Christian Mattias Mecca, Kathryn Goodson, piano; Amy Porter, flute; William King, Garret Jones, Elisha Willinger, clarinet; Jeffrey Lyman, Maddy Wildman, bassoon; Amanda Ross, Michelle Riechers, trumpet; David Jackson, Christopher Hernacki, trombone; Carmen Pelton, Elise Eden, soprano; Freda Herseth, contralto; and Stephen West, baritone.
 
17th Annual ANATOMY OF SOUND WORKSHOP - June 01, 2019 to June 04, 2019
University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance
Ann Arbor, MI
1:00 PM
Optimal Airflow Dynamics for Producing High Quality Flute Tone: A study of air flow, direction, speed, volume, and pressure from the diaphragm to the lips using objective measures will aid to understand the ideal state

This four-day workshop presents an opportunity for adult flute players to participate in masterclasses and join in-depth discussions about the study of flute tone, breathing, and body awareness both in flute practice and in performance.

This year, this workshop will unveil a series of research studies especially formatted for music students to study the anatomy and airflow dynamics that create an optimal tone on a woodwind instrument.

In addition, several leading flute manufacturers will exhibit their instruments for attendees to view, test, and purchase.
