A GIFT OF MUSIC: MORE THAN 50 FREE EVENTS FROM THE UW SCHOOL OF MUSIC

            The University of Washington School of Music has long been a source of affordable performances of great music from across genres. But UW Music has even more to offer music lovers in the Puget Sound region:

            In 2015-16, the School of Music has done away with the cost of admission to more than 50 concerts and music-related events at the School’s Brechemin Auditorium and the Walker-Ames Room of Kane Hall. This development is made possible thanks to the generosity of School of Music friend Mina B. Person, a member of the Brechemin family that has for many years made so much possible for students at the school. Mina’s gift, added to support from the College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office, allows us to throw open the doors to our in-house concert hall this season and offer our audiences a wealth of great music free of all admission charges.

            Included in this bounty of musical riches are two top-notch series produced by piano professor Robin McCabe: “Beethoven Back-to-Back” (Nov. 13-15), a three-performance exploration of the complete piano and violin sonatas of Beethoven, performed by McCabe and violinist Maria Larionoff; and “Schubertiade,” a quarterly performance showcasing works by the great composer Franz Schubert, performed by some of our most talented School of Music students. Both series include pre-concert lectures by music scholars from the UW and elsewhere.

            Other performances of note include a faculty recital by Michael Partington, guitar (April 24), a performance by The American String Project Chamber Players (March 18), and concerts featuring Ethnomusicology Visiting Artists Lalo Izquierdo (Dec. 8) and Phyllis Byrdwell (March 8).

            The annual Littlefield Organ Series, presented at the Walker-Ames Room of Kane Hall, is also included in the School’s list of free concert offerings in 2015-16. Starting with the very popular Halloween Organ Concert on Oct. 30, the series continues on Jan. 10 with a performance by organist Robert Bates from the University of Houston and concludes on April 17 with a performance by Arizona State University organist Kimberly Marshall.

            Our students, too, take their moments in the spotlight, with quarterly concerts by our jazz studies students, voice majors, and others, including instrumental performance students competing on three evenings (Nov. 17, 20, and 23) for opportunities to solo with the UW Symphony. Finally, we present two performances by our 2015-16 Scholarship Chamber Group, the Daana String Quartet (Dec. 2 and May 15).
