Shows

Ana María Martínez

Joshua Bell

“The American violinist with movie-star good looks has emerged as one of the finest musicians of his generation, whose interpretations can be seriously set beside and favorably compared to players twice his age. Dead players too.” THE WASHINGTON POST

Joe Lovano, with the UA Studio Jazz Ensemble

Friday, March 1 • 8:00 PM at Crowder Hall

“After 30 albums as a leader and at least 25 years in the spotlight, it’s clear Joe Lovano is more than a dominant figure in jazz. He’s jazz’s answer to George Clooney or Jeff Bridges, a vibrant player who delivers an award-worthy performance every time out.”  The Wall Street Journal

GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE

Considering Matthew Shepard

Tuesday, April 16 • 7:30 PM at Centennial Hall

“Considering Matthew Shepard’ is a stunning work, largely because it succeeds at being so audacious. It treats a deadly serious topic with surprising levity, and at the same time makes a shrewd connection to the heart of this darkness.”—AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN

Che Malambo

Sunday, April 28 • 3:00 PM at Centennial Hall

“A thrilling display…fourteen stomping,drumming, roaring men pounded rapid-fire rhythms into the ground with many surfaces of their feet – heels, toes, inside and especially the outside edges – and with spinning boleadoras, floor skimming stones attaced to lassos…a rousing group spectacle.”  THE NEW YORK TIMES
