Welcome to the 2023-24 Artist Series

U.S. Karagöz Theatre Company Presents Traditional Anatolian Shadow Theatre
The Forest of the Witch

Sept. 12, 7:30 p.m.
Degenstein Center Theater

US Karagöz Theatre Company was founded by Ayhan Hulagu as the first traditional Turkish theatre in the United States, in 2017. The company’s primary goal is to showcase traditional Anatolian theatre on the international scale, devoting special attention to Karagöz and meddah (the Anatolian art of storytelling), traditions on the list of Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage. Hulagu brought the 700-year-old Karagöz art form to Broadway for the first time, marking a special moment in the history of this traditional art. The Forest of the Witch is an adaptation of a play named The Bloody Poplar of Muhittin Sevilen, here rewritten by Ayhan Hulagu.

Branford Marsalis Quartet

Oct. 3, 7:30 p.m.
Weber Chapel Auditorium

Saxophonist Branford Marsalis is one of the most influential and revered figures in contemporary music. The NEA Jazz Master, Grammy Award winner, and Tony Award nominee is equally at home performing concertos with symphony orchestras and sitting in with members of the Grateful Dead, but the core of his musical universe remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet. After more than three decades of existence with minimal personnel changes, this celebrated ensemble is revered for its uncompromising interpretation of a kaleidoscopic range of both original compositions and jazz and popular classics. After
the Grammy-nominated Upward Spiral, on which guest vocalist Kurt Elling was seamlessly integrated into the group, the Quartet has followed up with
the Grammy-nominated The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul, its most emotionally wide- ranging and melody-driven collection to date.
John Zeugner captured the impact of the Quartet in a live performance in a recent concert review, calling it “casually confident, professional, cerebral, and supercharged with energy. The Branford Marsalis Quartet … was all of those adjectives and more.”

Weber Chapel Auditorium

The Grammy award–winning vocal ensemble Chanticleer has been hailed as “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker and is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for its wide-ranging repertoire and dazzling virtuosity. Founded in San Francisco in 1978 by singer and musicologist Louis Botto, Chanticleer quickly took its place as one of the most prolific recording and touring ensembles in the world, selling over one million recordings and performing thousands of live concerts to audiences around the world. Chanticleer’s repertoire is rooted in the renaissance and has continued to expand to include a wide range of classical, gospel, jazz and popular music, and a deep commitment to the commissioning of new compositions and arrangements.
