Venue rove es real alternati*ve for m---uSi*(

by C. Kubick

by Sherrill L. Bennett
Pop music in our culture is very
accessible because it's all around
us- radio, television, restaurants,
shopping centers, etc. We're sur-
rounded by it. Classical music, on
the other hand, is not so commonly
available. Outside metropolitan
areas, classical music does not enjoy
the same exposure that pop music
does- unless you live in Ann Ar-
bor. Ann Arbor is a schizophrenic
city, and one of its many personali-
ties is a healthy classical music
scene, with contributions from local
musicians and groups.
One major source of classical
music programming is the Univer-
sity Musical Society. Approaching
its 112th season, the organization
has been supplying Ann Arbor audi-
ences with some of the world's
finest performers. Last season's

main stage performances alone in-
cluded the Atlanta Symphony
Orchestra with Yoel Levi, the New
York City Opera National Com-
pany, a returning favorite, and the
Academy of St. Martin in the Field,
conducted by Dona Brown. As well
as performing groups, the UMS has
also drawn some iconoclastic per-
formers, like Leopold Stokowski,
Leonard Bernstein, Yo Yo Ma, Kath-
leen Battle, James Galway, Leontyne
Price, Murray Perahia and Jean-
Pierre Rampal.
But big names and big groups are
only part of what the UMS offers.
There's also a chamber artists series
which has welcomed such groups as
the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the
Guarneri String Quartet, NY Coun-
terpoint and the Stuttgart Wind
Quintet to Ann Arbor.
The UMS also features some tra-
ditional music and dance, concerts

Once in a lifetime opportunities, like the chance to see Handel's Messiah in a setting as celebrated as Hill
Auditorium, occur almost every day. Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but the University Musical Society
does present the Messiah once a year at Hill Auditorium.

Five years ago, the Ark (647 1/2 S.
Main, 761-1451). left its big
campus-area house for a brick factory
on Main Street. Though the move
from the home to a full-time factory
job is enough to daunt just about
any homemaker, Dave Siglin and his
Ark have weathered the move grace-
fully. Sure, the new place has a
couple of neon chalkboards and a
whole mess of smart, shiny lawn
chairs and tables for furniture (i.e.,
that. nasty, eighties non-style of
decor), but it's still got the best
damn dose of grass-roots music in
town and the good part about its
Main Street location is that it is so
far off the beaten path. If you man-
age to get down there more than
once a year, you can feel mighty
proud of yourself.
What the Ark is: an acoustic club
specializing in the Bluegrass/ Zy-
deco! Cajun! Blues! Jazz! Gospel!
Latin American/ Dixieland/ Old-
timey! Ultra-modern/ Storytelling!
Cabaret/ New Age! Classical! Com-
edy/ Women's/ Men's/ Children's/
Irish/ African/ English/ Scottish/
Australian/ Canadian/ Other variety
of music. Acts range from legends
like Taj Mahal and Beausoleil to
local faves like Madcat Ruth and
Frank Allison. "If people come
down here and open their minds and
their ears, they're gonna find
something different from other
places," says the Ark's main man,
Dave Siglin. "We aren't aiming at

the general population here," he
continues, "we're aiming at specific
niches."
The Ark was begun in the mid-
sixties by a coalition of four campus
area churches, with the intention of
bridging the distance between
alienated students and the church
bureaucracy. Ideally, it was to be an

organized forum for constructive
change. According to Siglin, reality
wasn't quite in keeping with the
ideal.
"It was basically what people
wanted it to be on any given week-
usually not much of anything. It
was pretty disorganized," he said.
Before Siglin came in late 1968,

the Ark had folk music on the week-
ends, church services on Sundays and
discussion groups during the week.
He officially took over as manager
of the Ark on Jan. 1, 1969. The
Ark retained its place as a center for
the community, but church concerns
were gradually dropped by the way-
side.
What the Ark is not: a place to
get smashed; a place to smash
things; an underground/revolutionary
hot spot; a student hang-out; a good
place to go dancing. It's not about

Th

like Kodo, a group of Japanese enter-
tainers, the Hungarian State Folk
Ensemble, and other groups from the
King's Singers to the New England
Ragtime Ensemble to the mime
group Mummenschanz.
The UMS concerts take place in
three major halls, all located on the

University's main campus. Beautiful
Hill Auditorium houses most of the
big concerts and soloists. Its walls
are lined with autographed photos of
past and present musical legends.
Chamber groups perform in Rack-
ham Auditorium. Theatrical produc-
tions such as opera and dance troupes
can be seen in the Power Center,
Ann Arbor's newest stage.
Sounds great, but how much is it
all going to cost? The UMS has
been criticized in the past forcater-
ing to an elitist crowd and excluding
students with out-of-reach ticket

prices. But compared to many other
cities offering similar concert series,
the UMS does offer reasonable stu-
dent discounts. Student rush tickets
sell as low as $5 for many concerts.
But the good seats are expensive,
just like good seats for the Rolling
Stones are expensive.
Although the UMS is a huge re-
source for classical music in Ann
Arbor, it's not the only one. The
University School of Music holds
concerts and stages opera, in addition
to almost daily student recitals and
See CLASSICAL, page 11

Not everybody that plays at the Ark is a neo-folkie. See paragraph two of
this article for written evidence. For photographic evidence, note
Beausoleil, Cajun favorites who have appeared at the Ark before.,
