The Cornell Department of Music announced the first concerts of the fall semester from the Wind Symphony, Symphony Orchestra, and Chamber Orchestra. The Wind Symphony, under the direction of James Spinazzola, will take the audience on a trip through 400 years of music for wind ensemble in just one hour. The program includes works by Giovanni Gabrieli, Gaetano Donizetti, Richard Wagner, Dmitri Kabalevsky, and Donald Grantham. The performance is Saturday, September 29 at 3:00pm in Bailey Hall.

The Wind Symphony has a close relationship with musical organizations in Haiti and will be returning there for a tour in January 2019. In advance of that trip, the Haitian dance band RAM performs September 27 at 8:00pm at the Haunt. RAM Haitian Dance Band is based at the famous Hotel Oloffson in Port-au-Prince and led by the hotel's owner Richard A. Morse. Their style of mizik rasin combines elements of Haitian Vodou and folkloric traditions with a variety of musical influences, from Caribbean and West-African dance rhythms to rock and roll. Tickets are $18 at the door, $15 in advance at, and $10 with CU student ID.

posticon U.S. Première Of New French Play

Arts and Entertainment | Friday, September 21, 2018 | By The Cherry Arts Print

This September 20–30, The Cherry Arts presents its second company production of the 2018–19 season. George Kaplan, by Frédéric Sonntag, is one of the most-produced plays to emerge from Europe in the last decade, and the Cherry is thrilled to be producing the play for the first time in English, in a translation by Artistic Director Sam Buggeln.

"George Kaplan" is the fictional spy in Hitchcock's North by Northwest, and George Kaplan is at once an anarchic comedy, a spy thriller, and a dizzying exploration into the relationship between reality and fiction. Deeply unlike any play produced in the area in recent memory, George Kaplan is a hall-of-mirrors journey through conspiracy theories, the quality of coffee, and the nature of identity itself.
