Posted by Admin On February - 26 - 2011
Chicago, IL – The University of Chicago Presents (UCP), the University’s professional music presenting organization, announces its 2011/12 Season, entitled “Evoking Musical Memories.” Building upon 66 years of excellence in the cultural life of Chicago, UCP’s upcoming 2011/12 season promises to inspire new musical memories with a variety of celebrated and rising international artists performing repertoire which spans the spectrum of classical, contemporary, and jazz music.
The 2011/12 Concert Season opens with true fanfare!  As part of the Howard Mayer Brown International Music Series, the English Concert under the artistic direction of Harry Bicket launches the season with the triumphant sounds of Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Trumpets and Suites from Purcell’s King Arthur and The Fairy Queen.  The series also features a new, special program of holiday music by the celebrated Tallis Scholars in Rockefeller Chapel, and the return of recorder/baroque flutist Mattias Maute with Rebel, the acclaimed, New York-based Baroque ensemble.
The Soviet Arts Experience, spearheaded and launched by UCP in October 2010, continues through January 2012.  Twenty-six artistic partners, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Art Institute of Chicago, and Ravinia Festival showcase artists who created under and in response to the Soviet Politburo. The 2011/12 season includes the conclusion of UCP’s concerts as part of the Soviet Arts Experience with superlative performances by the Borodin and Pacifica quartets, violinist Sergey Khachatryan, and the Irish Chamber Orchestra with pianist Leon Fleisher. 
Long the hallmark of UCP, the 2011/12 series will feature debuts by international artists, including Armenian/Canadian soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian, Germany’s Fauré Quartett and Morgenstern Trio, Armenian duo Sergey and Lusine Khachatryan, as well as jazz pianist Hiromi Uehara of Japan. Rounding out the series, the Pacifica Quartet returns for three performances in Mandel, one of which will feature pianist Jorge Federico Osorio joining them on the Dvorák Piano Quintet.
Subscriptions go on sale Monday, March 28, at 10 am.  Single tickets will go on sale Tuesday, September 6 at 10 am.  For more information, contact the UCP Concert Office at 773.702.8068, M-F, 10-5.
