April at UMS Includes WAR HORSE, REQUIEM, and More
The University Musical Society (UMS) presents a diverse April line-up featuring four uplifting performances to close out the 2013/2014 season of live performances. The first weekend marks the return of the UMS Choral Union and the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jerry Blackstone, in a powerful rendition of Brahms' German Requiem (Friday, April 4).
The following week, The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet brings its energetic stage presence to Ann Arbor with their interpretation of both traditional and contemporary works (Thursday, April 10). A few days later, the internationally recognized Akademie fu?r Alte Musik Berlin will enchant audiences in their UMS debut program, featuring works by J.S. Bach and two of his sons (Sunday, April 13).
National Theatre Live closes the 2013-2014 UMS season with the high-definition broadcast of War Horse, a searing drama embellished with a stirring musical score and life-size puppets by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company (Wednesday, April 23). Additional theater cinema broadcasts by both the National Theatre London and the Royal Shakespeare Company will take place through July.
