The ensemble uses acoustic instruments in a customary stage setting, yet each performer is guided by a private and unique downbeat rate using technology created by the composer.  For more information about this work, visit https://www.polytemporal.info.

The School of Music presents "A Winter's Journey", featuring Die Winterreise by Franz Schubert: A performance by students in the Voice Studio of Ms. Cheryl Parrish and a lecture by TXST musicology faculty member, Dr. Kay Lipton with guest pianist, Joachim Reinhuber
6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Music Building Recital Hall (MUS 236)

"Completed in the last months of the young Schubert’s life, Winterreise has come to be considered the single greatest piece of music in the history of Lieder. Deceptively laconic—these twenty-four short poems set to music for voice and piano are performed uninterrupted in little more than an hour—it nonetheless has an emotional depth and power that no music of its kind has ever equaled. A young man, rejected by his beloved, leaves the house where he has been living and walks out into snow and darkness. As he wanders away from the village and into the empty countryside, he experiences a cascade of emotions—loss, grief, anger, and acute loneliness, shot through with only fleeting moments of hope—until the landscape he inhabits becomes one of alienation and despair. Originally intended to be sung to an intimate gathering, performances of Winterreise now pack the greatest concert halls around the world".
Ian Bostridge

School of Music presents a Masterclass with Derek Hawkes, trombone
7:30 p.m.
Performing Arts Center Recital Hall

Born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Derek W. Hawkes started his musical studies at an early age. Coming from a musical family, he began piano instruction at age five and trombone at age ten.  He studied primarily with John Kitzman, former Principal Trombone of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, H. Dennis Smith, former Principal Trombone of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and most recently, Toby Oft, Principal Trombone of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Hawkes was a multiple-year substitute on trombone, euphonium, and bass trumpet with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, as well as Principal Trombone of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra in Maine. Most recently, he spent two seasons as Second Trombone of the Jacksonville Symphony beginning in 2015. He began his position as Assistant Principal/Second Trombone of the Nashville Symphony in September 2017.

Hawkes has been a soloist with the East Texas Symphony Orchestra, Plano Symphony Orchestra, SMU Meadows Wind Ensemble, and Interlochen Philharmonic. He was the Winner of the 2010 International Trombone Association Gilberto Gagliardi Competition, and was selected as a Finalist for the Lewis Van Haney Philharmonic Prize in 2011 and 2015. Growing up in Plano, Texas, Hawkes was a trombonist in the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra for four years and received its Outstanding Instrumentalist Award.

   

Hawkes graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Trombone Performance at Southern Methodist University in 2014. Upon seeing a large hole in the path from student to professional in a very specific field, he utilized the Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies program at the Meadows School of the Arts, creating and completing the very first known Bachelor of Arts focusing on Orchestral Management. He also pursued studies as a Graduate Diploma student at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.

Hawkes is a Bach Artist, and also advocates for Conn and King jazz instruments under the greater Conn-Sellmer umbrella. He plays a 1979 Bach 42B, restored and rebuilt by Dallas-area brass technician Eric Edwards and treated by Ron Pinc of R.J. Pinc Brass Repair. He also plays Greg Black Mouthpieces exclusively in his classical playing. Additionally, he runs Hawkes Arts Consulting, LLC; an arts consulting firm specializing in assisting smaller performing arts organizations.

Free and open to the public.  Fee-based parking is available a the Edward Gary Street garage, located across the street from the Performing Arts Center.  (Attention students enrolled in the Department Recital course: No attendance credit is offered for masterclasses).
