School of Music presents variety of concerts, lectures

By Stephanie Love
Daily Arts Writer
It's not hard to find music at
Michigan. A walk down North
University takes you past Hill
Auditorium, where on any given night,
students can find an orchestral perfor-
mance or a choir concert. Across the
courtyard, the Michigan League's

Mendelssohn Theater boasts a lineup of
theater and drama performances, while
Rackham Auditorium showcases cham-
ber music. Cross Fletcher and the Power
Center plays host to operas and musicals.
Across the bridge to the Hill area,
The Betty Pease Studio Theater in the
Dance Building features dance recitals.
And a bus to North Campus brings you

to the School of Music, the heart of the
Michigan music experience, where
recitals, lectures and master classes
occur on a daily basis.
Students like LSA junior Katya
Metidieri have ample opportunity to
take advantage of this musical atmos-
phere. "I think it would be nice to hear
what my peers are doing," Metidieri

said. "I know we have a great music pro-
gram, and I'd like to attend a concert."
The Michigan School of Music boasts
one of the most active and varied concert
lineups of any university in the country.
With more than 400 performances in an
academic year, the Music School pro-
vides an invaluable service to the
University and Ann Arbor community.
According to Jeffrey Chase, editorial
assistant of "Music at Michigan," pub-
lished twice a year by the School of
Music, "one of the advantages of hav-
ing an extensive and high-quality music
program is that students and the public
have access to events which in other
cities would have an admission."
In other words, if you're looking for
it, the School of Music has it. In addi-
tion to the ensembles that focus on tra-
ditional band, choir and orchestral liter-
ature, Michigan is home to one of the
most active jazz and improvisation pro-
grams in the country.
Beyond the larger ensembles, music
students perform in a variety of smaller

ensembles, which highlight the diversity
within the music school. From the Early
Music Ensemble, which plays music that
predates thel8th century, to the Digital
Music Ensemble's multimedia perfor-
mances, the scope is overwhelming.
Few people know that the School of
Music, in addition to being a power-
house for the performing arts, is a bar-
gain hunter's dream.
"Ninety-five percent of the Music
School's activities are free and open to
the public, and the concerts are general-
ly very high-quality," said Chase.
While most of the music perfor-
mances are free, the theater and dance
departments do charge admission to
University Productions events, which
include musical theater and drama per-
formances. Events such as the
Halloween Concert and Band-O-Rama
also charge admission. Student tickets
generally cost around $7, a steal in a
town where tickets to concerts through
the University Musical Society start at

~ In the wake of the recent cancella-
tion of his eponymous Fox show, it
looks like comedian/actor Martin
Lawrence has quite a bit more than
"nothing" to lose - his freedom, for
starters. Regularly in trouble with the
law, Lawrence, star of TV's "Martin"
and the 1995 action blockbuster "Bad
Boys," was sentenced to two years'pro-
bation and 240 hours of community
service on Sept. 17, in Los Angeles.
Lawrence pleaded no contest to battery
charges stem-
ming from a
March incident in
which he was
arrested for hit-
ting an unidenti-
fied man in a
nightclub after
the man allegedly
bumped into him.
And the woes
don't end there:
Lawrence is still
slated to pay an
amount of money
to his victim.
~ Following
another lousy
performance by
one of his films
- both in the box
office and, more
surprisingly, with
-critics - ubiqui-
tous director
Oliver Stone
seems to be slow-
ing up a bit. The "Who, me?" Comedi
creator of "U- has run afoul of the1
Turn" has big plans for the future, how-
ever. According to Entertainment
Weekly, Stone hopes to direct a film
tentatively called "NFL," about the pro
sports league. He also hopes to film the
script he has written as a sequel to
1996's hit "Mission: Impossible." The
original, directed by Brian De Palma,
starred Tom Cruise as spy Ethan Hunt.
A chance to work again with Cruise,
the star of his 1989 film "Born on the
Fourth of July," is reported to be Stone's
biggest reason for doing the film. More
important, it would seem, is a chance to
get his career back on track.
~ Just because you're rich doesn't
mean you're invincible. Just ask Steven
Spielberg, director of some of the most
profitable films of all time and one of
the wealthiest men in the entertainment
industry. Spielberg suffered a minor
shoulder sprain when he was involved
in an automobile accident on Sept. 23.
His wife, actress Kate Capshaw, and
their driver suffered no injuries.
Spielberg's latest film, the slave ship
mutiny saga "Amistad," is scheduled to
open later this fall.

U Music
V The Straits Times reports that
Janet Jackson's long-awaited new
album, "The Velvet Rope," has been
banned in Singapore. The reason? Well,
it appears that Singapore's Office of the
Controller of Undesirable Publications
feels that three
songs about
abuse, homosex-
uality and sexu-
ality are not in
the best interests
of Singapore's
people. Perhaps
Jackson will now
sell only 10 mil-
lion copies of
"The Velvet
Rope," not 10.1
' million.

dates for The Verve begin on
November 1st, and are expected to
attract a group of crazed fans who are
