Hancher enhances artistic 'Connections'


Tickets are now on mail-order sale for the 2001-2002 performing-arts season at Hancher Auditorium. The free brochure that details the season’s music, theater, and dance attractions stresses the "Connections" that are created by the arts—connections between the past and the future, connections with other people, connections with our inner selves, and connections between the familiar and the foreign.

Al Jarreau

Brochures were mailed to Hancher’s full mailing list on April 18, so everyone who regularly receives Hancher mailings should receive a brochure soon.

Among the top attractions of the season are vocal star (and distinguished UI alumnus) Al Jarreau; the legendary Philadelphia Orchestra; the Houston Ballet’s new production of The Firebird, choreographed by James Kudelka; opera diva Frederica von Stade with the UI Symphony; the new music/theater/pageantry sensation Blast!; Britain’s ever-popular king’singers, the festive Ballet Folklorico de Mexico; two musical treats from Cuba—the Buena Vista Social Club and a Halloween party with the Afro-Cuban All Stars; and the Broadway hits Cabaret, Copenhagen (winner of the Tony Award for Best Play in 2000), and Iowa’s own evergreen, The Music Man.

Hancher will also be the site of two 2001-2002 world premieres: an intriguing collaboration between the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center; and The Nueva Collection, a Kronos Quartet program focusing on the popular music of Latin America.
