Campus arts keeps 'U' alive with

s of 1997

By Stephanie Love
Daily Campus Arts Editor
In looking for a way to sum up the
past year's events, perhaps the idea of
campus arts itself says it all. Campus
arts, a term that only begins to express
the scope of what it includes, encom-
passes everything from the School of
Music to the basement of the Frieze
Building to Hill Auditorium. Ann Arbor
is lucky to have a consistently excellent
lineup of events in any given year, and
1997 proved to be no exception. The
problem? Where to begin.
On the professional level, the
University Musical Society brought a
diverse schedule of events, ranging
from the familiar to the unusual, to Ann
Arbor. From the choreography of
Japanese Kodo drumming to the beauty
and precision of the chamber orchestra
Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields,
UMS provided concertgoers with an
array of musical styles in the winter of
Fans of Wynton Marsalis' composi-
tion "Blood on the Fields," which pre-
miered in April, await an encore April
1998 appearance, which is already sold
out. Other notable events included the
Harlem Nutcracker, making a repeat
December stop in Ann Arbor after a
successful run in 1996, and the 1997
Ford Honors Program that presented
opera legend Jessye Norman, a former
graduate student at the School of
Music, with the second UMS
Distinguished Artist Award on April 26.
The 1997 UM S season, besides
bringing great artists to Ann Arbor, also
brought a new kind of audience to per-
formances. Salsa queen Celia Cruz had
the audience dancing in the aisles of
Hill Auditorium in November. A few
weeks later, the aisles were filled again
when Itzhak Perlman performed in
December's "In the Fiddler's House,"
perhaps the best event of the season.
The performance was topped only by
the incredible lyricism of Cecilia
Bartoli's eagerly awaited September
recital. In addition, UMS has looked to
bring non-Western performances to
Ann Arbor, some of which included the
National Traditional Orchestra of
China, the Pakistani Faridi Qawwals
