SUPPLE Series: ED MILLER Songs of Scottland (Thu 10/6)

Location:
Performing Arts Center (PERF); Recital Hall
Cost:
$10 ADULT (includes wine & cheese reception beginning at 7:00) $5 TEXAS STATE STUDENTS
Contact:
Kevin Gilley, 512.245.9170
Campus Sponsor:
University Arts

A native of Edinburgh, Ed Miller first came to the USA for “a year or so” to do graduate work at the University of Texas.Now, over 40 years later, he is still based in Austin and travels throughout North America entertaining and educating audiences with his wonderful songs and droll stories. From old traditional ballads and the timeless songs of Robert Burns, to contemporary songs of urban change, emigration, nationalism and humor, a performance by Ed Miller gives a real taste of Scotland, and shows his continuing love for his homeland. Reviews of Miller’s performances often use words such as “flawless,” “compelling,” or “refreshing,” while his voice has been described as being “as smooth and satisfying as a really good single malt whisky.”

Austin has great guitar players in abundance; but one of the most highly respected is Rich Brotherton - "you name him/her, he's played with them" since coming to Austin in the early 1980's. Originally from Augusta GA of Irish-American background, his main "gig" for the past 2 decades has been as lead guitar in the Robert Earl Keen Band. He and Ed, however, have played together whenever possible for over 30 years, and his wonderful instrumental work and great vocal harmonies are a perfect compliment to Ed's singing.

*Supple Music Designation - Driven by their passion for the traditional American art form of Folk Music, President Jerry and Cathy Supple established the Supple Folk Music Series. After Jerry’s death, Cathy continues to support this campus activity with additional support provided by the Reed Parr Music Endowment and the generosity of CenturyLink.

Guest Artist Series presents Benny Golson  Quartet
8:00 p.m.
Performing Arts Center Recital Hall

At age eighty-seven, saxophonist Benny Golson is one of the last surviving links to the Golden Age of modern jazz, ushered in by the likes of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Kenny Clarke and others in the early '40s .....

..... At an age that is far past retirement for most mortals, Benny Golson not only keeps working but showing a younger generation that when it comes to contemporary jazz, maturity and experience are dependable allies in the ongoing battle with Father Time. It is, of course, a battle that can never be won, but Golson proves on Horizon Ahead that when his time comes, he'll definitely go down swinging.

Visit Benny Golson's official website at: www.bennygolson.com

The exhibition Many Wars explores the complex psychological impact of combat on the individual through a series of photographs by Suzanne Opton. Opton's Many Wars series personifies the effects of trauma as seen in the portraits of veterans taken at a VA clinic. Her soldier portraits, icons of the aftermath of the current wars, have sparked a passionate debate about issues of art and soldiering. Her photographs are included in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, Cleveland Museum, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Library of Congress, and Musee de l'Eysee among others. She has received grants from the NEA, NYFA, and Vermont Council on the Arts. Opton teaches at the International Center of Photography and is the recipient of a 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship.

Dr. Chan and Dr. Perkinson will present an interdisciplinary lecture-recital that explores the cultural links between music and tuberculosis (TB) while also increasing awareness of TB’s threat to global public health.  This timeless disease, formerly known as consumption, afflicted a number of prominent 17th-20th-century composers whose works we still enjoy today.  This lecture-recital will feature performances of some of these works and will also include a review of the history and early treatment methods of TB.  Through this interdisciplinary approach that focuses on an ancient yet contemporary disease, this lecture-recital aims to facilitate deeper connections between the audience, the composers, and their enduring music.

A presentation by artist Monica Haller and designer Matthew Rezac in conjunction with the exhibition, Object for Deployment / Veterans Book Project. Haller and Rezac will discuss their respective practices and their collaborative work including the first publication of the Veterans Book Project series—Riley and his Story.

Riley and His Story is the result of a three-way collaboration between Monica Haller (visual artist), Riley Sharbonno (Iraq war veteran) and Matthew Rezac (graphic designer). Reconstructing Riley’s experiences at Abu Ghraib prison, where he served as an Army nurse from 2004 to 2005, the book is a visual experience composed of hundreds of digital snapshots taken during Riley’s time in Iraq, many of which he has no memory of taking.

The Veterans Book Project is a collection of 50 books authored collaboratively by artist Monica Haller and individuals with firsthand experience of war. Many of the authors are veterans of the recent U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, some are family members of soldiers, and others are Iraqi or Afghan civilians living in the United States. The books were all made in the U.S., where the wars were launched but rarely collectively seen and discussed.

Debra Barrera was born in Corpus Christi, Texas and currently lives and works in Houston, Texas. She received her Masters of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Houston and her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art and in English from the University of Texas at Austin. Her work has recently been included in a solo exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. She also recently completed a permanent installation for Rice Public Art and the Department of Physics and Astronomy and upon its completion is included in the permanent collection of Rice University.  She had a solo exhibition at Moody Gallery in 2012, in conjunction with Drive Me There and Back Again, her project included in the Blaffer Art Museum's Window Into Houston exhibition series. Her work has been exhibited in several group exhibitions including the 2013 Texas Biennial at Blue Star Contemporary Art, San Antonio as well as at Alabama Song, Houston, Oak Cliff Cultural Center, Dallas, and the Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Beaumont.  

Jonathan Hopson is a Houston native who started his art career right out of college installing artwork for a private company. This allowed Jonathan to engage in the art community in a way he never had before. From there he also held similar positions at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, The Menil Collections, and the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. After ten years in the arts, he embarked on a new venture he felt passionately about: "I looked at the community and saw there was a gap. I really wanted to give artists that were under represented a chance and so I started Hello Project Gallery."

In less than two years, Hello Project Gallery received numerous write ups and was invited to the New Art Dealers Alliance art fair in Miami in 2015 and also the NADA art fair in New York in 2016. Currently, Hello Project is in the process of claiming a stake in Houston and will be opening a new space in the Fall of 2016.

Faculty Artist Series presents Caroline Steiger, horn
"Modular: A recital program featuring music by Florent Schmitt, Daniel Schnyder, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Kevin Ernste
8:00 p.m.
Performing Arts Center Recital Hall

Caroline Steiger, active teacher, clinician, and performer both in large and small ensemble settings, joins the Texas State faculty as a new Assistant Professor of Music and artist/teacher of horn. 

She grew up in Southeast Michigan and went on to study at the University of Michigan, earning a B.M. in Horn performance with Teacher Certification in 2010. She earned her M.M. in Horn Performance from Penn State University and her D.M.A. in performance at the University of Michigan in 2015. 

As a teacher Dr. Steiger has held positions at SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music (Visiting Assistant Professor of Horn, 2014), Penn State University (Teacher Assistant), and the University of Michigan (Graduate Student Assistant).  She currently has a thriving private studio in Michigan where several of her students participate in Solo and Ensemble at the District and State levels and perform at the Michigan Youth Arts Festival.  While at Penn State University, Caroline was the Assistant Director of the Penn State Horn Ensemble and helped plan tours that included performances at the Pennsylvania Music Educator’s Association (PMEA) conference, Lancaster, and Hershey, PA. 

Dr. Steiger’s work as a musician has included regular performances with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra as well as playing with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings, and the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra during its 2015 US tour.  In addition, Dr. Steiger has held Principal positions with the Dearborn Symphony (Dearborn, MI), Adrian Symphony (Adrian, MI), Rochester Symphony (Rochester, MI), Oakland Symphony (Rochester, MI), Orchestra of Northern New York (Potsdam, NY), and the Northern Symphonic Winds (Potsdam, NY).  She has performed in great halls across the country, including Carnegie Hall, Orchestra Hall in Detroit, Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh, the Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda, and Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor, getting a chance to work with conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Leonard Slatkin, Stefan Sanderling, Lio Kuokman, Karina Canellakis, and Giordano Bellincampi.

Committed to chamber music, Dr. Steiger has played with the Potsdam Brass Quintet, faculty quintet-in-residence at SUNY Potsdam, and the Emblems Woodwind Quintet, an Ann Arbor-based quintet focused on performing new and underrepresented works. In 2015 she participated in a chamber music residency at the University of Michigan with New York Philharmonic principal winds, where she performed with Philip Myers.  A commitment to new music is evident through her participation in chamber ensembles as well as the University of Michigan’s Contemporary Directions Ensemble, which premiered several works by U of M composition students and participated in the Midwest Composers Symposium in 2013. 

Dr. Steiger’s main teachers include Adam Unsworth, Bryan Kennedy, Lisa Bontrager, Soren Hermansson, and Corbin Wagner.  She has also studied with and participated in master classes with Gail Williams, Fergus McWilliam, David Krehbiel, Robert Ward, Bernhard Scully, and Jeffrey Lang.


Open to the public.  Tickets available in advance at txstatepresents.com or at the door at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the program.  Fee-based parking is available at the Edward Gary Street Garage, across the street from the Performing Arts Center.  (Attention students enrolled in the Department Recital course: This is a GOLD event)
