Latin@ Culture Show
Time:

Location:
Mendelssohn Theatre
Room:

The Latin@ Culture Show, LCS, serves to broaden awareness of the spectrum of Latino culture through artistic expression. As a student run program, LCS provides the opportunity for University of Michigan students, faculty, and Ann Arbor residents to learn and share in a variety of experiences brought to life on stage by community participants. 

Featuring: Mariachi Cora Lola Von Miramar GROOVE

Since it’s founding in March 2001, the mission of LCS has been  to promote and embrace the often overlooked Latino presence at the University of  Michigan. Since then the show has grown tremendously in its production and attracted large numbers of community members to both participate in and attend the celebration. Staying true to its promise, students work collectively to help coordinate this innovative event as LCS continues to demonstrate the limitless contributions of Latinos to our local university community and in mainstream society.  The Latin@ Culture Show provides a space to analyze, critique and appreciate a culture that most are unfamiliar with while also providing the opportunity for the students involved to share their insights, talents and creativity in a production that gives voice to a marginalized people.

Opera Studio “Green Opera” Presentation

Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
School of Music, Theatre & Dance
Time:
7:30 pm
Location:
Walgreen Drama Center
Room:
Stamps Auditorium

Green operas are produced with a focus on minimizing the resources required to produce a theatrical performance by using recycled materials for scenery and costumes, projected scenic elements, LED lights and other measures which can reduce the carbon footprint of a typical production by as much as 95%. The works themselves also focus on environmental themes: Rusalka’s Tale is a one act adaptation of the Dvorak opera presented in English, and L’enfant et les Sortileges by Maurice Ravel, presented in French with English supertitles both have plots that lend themselves to interpretations that illuminate the delicate relationship between man and nature. Both works are produced and directed by Robert Swedberg, collaborating with Timothy Cheek and Steven McGhee, Music Directors

Howie Day

Howie Day
Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO)
Time:
8:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

Citing the likes of Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and Dave Matthews among his influences, Howie Day used their music as a basis for his own original direction. Howie, like Patty Griffin, was a product of Bangor, Maine, who made a splash in Boston's coffeehouse scene. He released his first album, "Australia," in 2000. A lot has happened since then. Howie's music went in a rock direction, and he got the attention of industry heavyweight Chris Blackwell and was signed to the major Epic label. He got a gold record for his album "Stop the World Now," and he's been romantically linked to Britney Spears. What hasn't changed is that he writes songs imbued with a wide-eyed sense of boundless emotion, and clothes them in gorgeous arrangements that include innovative looping techniques.
