Programs and Tours
Mixing sound, art, and architecture, the annual SMTD@UMMA Installation Concert features new work created entirely by UM students using the collection and architecture of UMMA as inspiration for their compositions. Over the past two years roughly 800 people have enjoyed chamber works for percussion (2010) and mini operas (2011) conceived specifically for the spaces in which they were performed. In 2012, we feature a jazz installation. Under the direction of UM Jazz Professor Andrew Bishop, six Jazz students dream up new compositions in response to works in UMMA's permanent collection. Performances will be given live in the various galleries and public spaces of the Museum.
The SMTD@UMMA performance series is made possible in part by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund.
