CHICAGO — The University of Chicago Presents ( UCP ) Executive Director Amy Iwano today announced the 2016/17 season for the University's professional music presenting organization. Running from October 14, 2016 through May 19, 2017, with 22 concerts featuring artists familiar and new, UCP's 73rd season offers a diverse array of performances in classical, early, contemporary, and jazz music. Additional related events including pre-concert lectures, a film screening, jazz listening sessions, and a book group discussion enhance the series.

Expression takes form in both words and music in concerts throughout the season: Freddy Cole and René Marie open the Jazz at the Logan series in a collaboration titled He Said / She Said. The genre-defying vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth explores issues of race with words of black writers and poets in white composer Ted Hearne's Coloring Book. Sandrine Piau sings French and German songs in her Chicago recital debut. Salman Rushdie reads from his novel, The Enchantress of Florence, to music written for the esteemed American String Quartet, who will play an accompanying new work by composer Paul Cantelon, best known for his film work, including scores to The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Immigrant. The stellar British ensemble Stile Antico sings texts set by exiled Catholic composers in the Elizabethan period. Sequentia presents Monks Singing Pagans, a program of medieval monastic songs based on non-Christian "pagan" Roman writers such as Homer and Horace. Contempo concerts offer Eight Songs for a Mad King by Peter Maxwell Davies and Sofia Gubaidulina's Songs of the Gallows.

A number of performances this season honor the legacies of influential artists, composers and writers: the Cleveland-based early music ensemble Apollo's Fire pays tribute to J.S. Bach and his contemporaries with its Bach's Coffeehouse program; Contempo highlights experimental composer Mauricio Kagel in a program melding the theatrical and the musical; and Imani Winds participate in citywide celebrations surrounding poet Gwendolyn Brooks' 100th birthday. Living jazz legend Fred Hersch's story is told through a screening of The Ballad of Fred Hersch, a new documentary about his musical journey and life as an AIDS survivor.

BY SERIES

The Classic Concert series will kick off with a performance by the Danish String Quartet, who opened UCP's 2014/15 season to great acclaim. Violinist Isabelle Faust and pianist Alexander Melnikov will make their long-awaited Chicago recital debut in an all-Beethoven program, as will soprano Sandrine Piau, who will depart her usual Baroque fare for a recital of Romantic songs. In the spring, rising solo pianist Benjamin Hochman plays variations by Janacek, Beethoven, Bartok, and Frederic Rzewski. The Classic Concert Series also features performances by Don Michael Randel Ensembles in Residence old and new: a concert by the Imani Winds — including their Chicago debut in January — and an appearance by the beloved Pacifica Quartet in April, closing the series.

This season, the Howard Mayer Brown International Early Music Series emphasizes ensembles, inviting Cleveland-based Baroque orchestra Apollo's Fire, led by Jeannette Sorrell, and vocal ensemble Stile Antico to the University of Chicago campus. Medieval ensemble Sequentia, directed by Benjamin Bagby, who delivered his acclaimed one-man-show Beowulf last season, brings their new Monks Singing Pagans program — another installment in The Lost Songs Project. Virtuoso lutenists Paul O'Dette and Ronn McFarlane also take the UCP stage in a program entitled Two Lutes: Virtuoso Duets from Italy and England.

Contempo begins its 52nd season and second season under artistic director and composer Marta Ptaszyà … �ska. This season marks a departure from previous seasons in that a range of new music ensembles will participate in Contempo concerts, including the Chicago-based Ensemble dal Niente, International Contemporary Ensemble ( ICE ), Spektral Quartet, and Kontras Quartet. Scheduled are an instrumental theater concert featuring a work by composer Mauricio Kagel, who developed the genre; a program of music by leading international women composers; and a work for 100 percussionists produced in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The season concludes with Tomorrow's Music Today, featuring works by UChicago doctoral candidates in composition.

In its fourth year, Jazz at the Logan presents its most star-studded season yet. The season opens with collaboration between vocalists Freddy Cole and René Marie, followed by the Paquito D'Rivera Quintet later that fall, and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington in January. Jazz pianists Fred Hersch and Vijay Iyer also touch down in Chicago alongside their bands. The series is supported by a grant from the Reva and David Logan Foundation and the Julie and Parker Hall Endowment for Jazz and American Popular Music at the University of Chicago.

UCP's Music Across Genres series includes some of the 2016/17 season's most intriguing concerts. The American String Quartet's concert with Salman Rushdie is included as part of the series, which continues with a performance by the electrifying contemporary vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth and concludes with a commemorative program by the Imani Winds as part of Chicago's Gwendolyn Brooks centennial.
