Programs and Tours
Old World, New World
Just as Benjamin West's painting The Death of General Wolfe depicts a meeting of Native and European figures, this concert features compositions from the last fifty years that bring together old and new world cultures in music. Bowling Green State University Composition Professor (and UM alumnus) Christopher Dietz conducts his Le Chemin de Salut for soprano and chamber ensemble (featuring Jennifer Goltz, soprano); the Orpheus Singers perform Ariel Ramirez’s celebrated Misa Criolla alongside choral selections by fellow Argentinian composer Carlos Guastavino.
The SMTD@UMMA performance series is made possible in part by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund. Generous support for this exhibition is provided by the Joseph F. McCrindle Foundation, the University of Michigan Health System, the University of Michigan Office of the Provost and Office of the Vice President for Research, the Richard and Rosann Noel Endowment Fund, and THE MOSAIC FOUNDATION (of R. & P. Heydon).
