Vail Series Presents An Evening With Bela Fleck, Zakir Hussain, Edgar Meyer with Rakesh Chaurasia

Tickets can be purchased HERE beginning September 23, 2019


As the Vail Series celebrates 40 years of welcoming world-class performers to Denison, we begin our season with a nod to the past. Once again, we are excited to welcome Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer with Rakesh Chaurasia to the stage. NPR stated they are "Simply the best at what they do....they're world-class masters of the banjo, the bass fiddle and the tabla (who) conquered mere technical prowess long ago." There's a bit of the sorcerer in Fleck (banjo), Hussain (tabla), Meyer (double bass), and their special guest Chaurasia (bansuri-Indian flute). Most musicians hope at most for proficiency in their chosen form, but these gentlemen move from bluegrass to Western classical to Indian classical to jazz, transmuting genres into something uniquely their own as though they'd gotten hold of the alchemist's tools that legendarily changed lead into gold. In any case, it's music that transcends description, ineffable, indefinable, and very beautiful.

'When Birds Refused to Fly' Baker & Tarpaga Dance Project

'When Birds Refused to Fly' Baker & Tarpaga Dance Project

  • Michael D. Eisner Center for the Performing Arts (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us for the first Vail Series performance in the new Michael D. Eisner Center for the Performing Arts, “When Birds Refused to Fly,” a Baker + Tarpaga Dance Project, choreographed by Olivier Tarpaga.

“When Birds Refused to Fly” is a contemporary, evening-length dance theatre project, set to the music of Orchestra Super Volta. Super Volta’s music reflects the celebratory, post-independence fevers raging across sub-Saharan Africa in the 1960s and 1970s, in stark contrast to the painful struggle African Americans faced during their fight for Civil Rights in the United States. This ensemble piece explores, through music and movement, a generational transformation both cultural and geographic; examining what it is to build up and break down.

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Ohio Arts Council and the Crane Group. The presentation of Baker + Tarpaga Dance Project was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Brasil Guitar Duo with JIJI

Brasil Guitar Duo with JIJI

  • Michael D Eisner Center for the Performing Arts (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Vail Series presents a two night event with Brasil Guitar Duo with JIJI performing classical guitar music.

Brasil Guitar Duo, a 2006 winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, and hailed  by Classical Guitar magazine for its “maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity,” is equally at home on a classical or a world-music series or performing a concerto with orchestra. The Duo combines a broad repertoire of classical guitar duos (Bach, Sor, Scarlatti, Rameau, Debussy, etc.) with such traditional Brazilian dance forms as choro, samba, maxixe, and baião.

JIJI made her Carnegie Hall/Stern Auditorium debut as soloist with the award-winning New York Youth Symphony, performing the world premiere of a new concerto written for JIJI by American composer Natalie Dietterich in the 2018/2019 season. Born in Seoul, South Korea, JIJI (Jiyeon Kim) began playing classical guitar at the age of nine, and was accepted to the Korea National University of Arts at age fourteen.  She attended the Cleveland Institute of Music, was one of the first two guitarists in Curtis’ distinguished history, and earned her Master of Music degree from the Yale School of Music.

Backyard Series: Rain Gardens and DIY Rain Barrel

Backyard Series: Rain Gardens and DIY Rain Barrel

Rain Barrels: $50

Why plant rain gardens? The news has recently been saturated (pun intended) with water-related headlines about elevated nitrate levels and localized flooding from heavy rainfall and stormwater runoff.  Toxic algae continues to be a problem at Buckeye Lake and around Ohio.  Rain gardens allow rain water to slowly soak into the ground and reduce the amount of polluted stormwater flowing into nearby streams.

What is a rain barrel? Rain barrels collect and store rain water from rooftops, thereby reducing runoff and flooding during storms. Use rain barrel water to irrigate landscaping and gardens while saving money on water bills..

At the workshop, view a well-established rain garden; then learn how to design and install a rain garden on your property.  Next, build your own rain barrel so you can start harvesting rain water from your roof.

Registration fee of $50 will be collected at workshop for the cost of the rain barrel.  We can only accept cash or check for payment on site. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Cadence (Genre: A Cappella)
The stage lights fall, the crowd goes quiet, and four harmonious voices rise up and fill the air. The melodies unfurl into something both familiar and fresh. What comes next maybe a classic song by Joni Mitchell or Louis Prima. It may be an old bebop standard or cheeky arrangement of a
1980’s hit. But these are arrangements like you’ve never heard them before—containing all the richness of a full band, but performed using just four voices.

Twelve Angry Jurors

Twelve Angry Jurors

On a hot summer day after a long trial, a jury must decide whether a 19-year-old man is guilty of murdering his father. The jury votes 11-1 that the man is guilty of the crime, but laws in the United States require a unanimous vote by all 12 jurors in order to pass judgment. Tempers flare as the eleven jurors try their best to convince the 1 dissenter to come around to their side. As the evidence is re-examined, however, new uncertainties come to light, forcing everyone to truly question if there is in fact some measure of “reasonable doubt”.
