Arnold Schoenberg’s melodrama Pierrot Lunaire stands as one of the seminal works of 20th century modern art. For this work, Schoenberg developed a startlingly innovative style of vocal delivery he called Sprechstimme (speaking-voice), which requires the text to be partly spoken and partly sung. The style was adopted by many later composers including Webern, Ravel and Boulez. The narrator is accompanied by flute, clarinet, violin, cello & piano. Using poetry by Belgian dramatist Albert Geraud, the work continues to amaze and disturb listeners over 100 years after it was first performed. School of Music faculty members Adah Jones (flute), Vanguel Tanguerov (clarinet), Lynn Ledbetter (violin), Karla Hamelin (cello), Joey Martin (piano), Myra Vassian (narrator) and Jonathan Babcock (conductor) will perform.

This event has been earmarked as one of the University's "Common Experience" events with its focus on INNOVATION this year.

John began playing drums at age eight, after receiving a snare drum as a gift. With the support, encouragement and patience of his parents, John and Mary Ann, he played in the school band and began drum lessons with a good local teacher, Tom Sicola. While under Tom's guidance, he gained control of the snare drum through work on the rudiments and reading. Eventually, he acquired a complete drumset and lessons expanded to include "beats of the day," coordination and reading studies for the drumset. At age twelve, John began playing in rock bands and heard his first jazz recordings, the soundtrack to The Gene Krupa Story and Max Roach's Conversation. Two years later, he played his first "professional" gig, which he obtained through an audition played over the telephone. John began studying with Joe Morello in 1971, after meeting him at a drum symposium. John went on to attend the University of North Texas, where he was introduced to a larger world of music and percussion. While at UNT, he played in, toured, and recorded with the famed One O'clock Lab Band. In 1976, he moved to New York City and was soon called to join the Woody Herman Band. Following that great experience, John returned to New York and began freelancing with a wide spectrum of world class musicians including Stan Getz, Milt Jackson, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, John Scofield, Bob Mintzer, Gary Peacock, Mike Stern, Joe Lovano, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, John Patitucci, Bob Berg, and many others.

John has a Bachelor of Music degree in jazz education from the University of North Texas and a Master of Music in jazz studies from Manhattan School of Music. He is on the faculty of Manhattan School of Music, and Kutztown University, and is an Artist in Residence at Amsterdam Conservatory, Holland. John is also the author of The Art of Bop Drumming, Beyond Bop Drumming, The Jazz Drummer's Workshop, The Master Drummer DVD, and has taught master classes around the world.

In the Fall of 2009, James Nova joined the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as its Second/Utility Trombone. Before joining the PSO, Jim served 8 seasons as the Assistant Principal/Second Trombonist of the Utah Symphony Orchestra.

Jim began playing the trombone at age nine in his home state of Connecticut. As a child he received his early musical exposure and training from his father, Anesti Nova. During high school, Jim studied with his first private trombone teacher, Assistant Principal/Second Trombonist of the Hartford Symphony George Sanders.

After graduating high school Jim attended the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. He received his Bachelor’s Degree there studying with the Philadelphia Orchestra’s then Principal Trombonist Glenn Dodson. Jim then moved to Boston to pursue a Master’s Degree on a full scholarship at the New England Conservatory of Music, studying with then Boston Symphony Orchestra trombonist, Norman Bolter. In addition to his college education, James attended the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan and was also a member of the Tanglewood Music Center Fellowship Orchestra for three summers. After finishing his Masters degree, he freelanced in Boston for several years, substituting on a regular basis with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops Orchestra, making several recordings and television broadcasts with both groups as both principal and second trombone. In 2001, Jim moved to Salt Lake City to join the Utah Symphony Orchestra.

From 2003 to 2007 he enjoyed playing at the Grand Teton Music Festival and recently played and taught at the Brevard Music Center in the summer of 2013. He is also the former second trombonist of the Pacific Symphony Orchestra in Orange County, California, former principal of the Rhode Island Philharmonic, former principal of the Vermont Symphony, and former assistant principal of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra.

Jim’s solo recording “Albanian Rhapsody” is a debut in both performance and composition for the father and son team, composer Anesti Nova and trombonist James Nova. All but one piece in this world premiere collection of compositions is for solo trombone and either string or chamber orchestra. The music is ethnically charged, deriving much influence and flavor from Jim and Anesti’s strong Albanian background. It is at times tragic, languid and yet uplifting as it chronicles (with the trombone as storyteller) the journey of the Nova family through hardships and eventual triumph over adversity.

In March of 2012, Jim made his solo debut with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, performing the Henri Tomasi Trombone concerto as well as his own arrangement of the famous Tommy Dorsey jazz ballad, “I’m Getting’ Sentimental Over You” which is the material Tomasi based his trombone concerto on.

Since 2012, Jim has found a new passion using recording technology to explore multitrack recording, also known as "overdubbing" and created numerous stunning recordings of challenging new arrangements he's done of a variety of exciting repertoire for trombone choir. These employ a number of trombones: contra bass, bass, tenor, small tenor, alto and even soprano trombones! To hear these, got to www. soundcloud.com/jimnova.

Visit Jim’s website, www.jimnova.com, or soundcloud site, www. soundcloud.com/jimnova, for more info.

Jim is an SE Shires Artist and performs on Greg Black Mouthpieces.

Greg Waits has had a remarkable and impressive career, having played in a wide variety of genres.

He has played with countless artists, including Dave Douglas, Kenny Wheeler, Joe Williams, Al Grey, Red Garland, Benny Goodman, Harry Connick, Jr., et al. He toured with the Woody Herman Band as lead and solo trombonist. In addition, he performed on 5 cross country big band tours with Columbia Artists International, and was employed by the cruise ship orchestras of the S.S. Norway and the S.S. Constitution.
Greg is a veteran of the US Army’s Jazz Knights big band of West Point N.Y.  (1981- ’84).
Greg has lived in Europe where he toured and recorded with a number of bands, including his own. While overseas, he continued his connection with  jazz trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff, the acknowledged master of technique multi-phonics. Albert cited Greg as the one trombone player on the scene today who not only understands what it is that he is doing, but is carrying on the tradition.

In 1999, Greg released his debut CD. He is joined by jazz artists Dave Liebman, Ed Soph, John Adams and Dan Haerle, et al. His CD was selected as one of Cadence Magazine’s “Critic’s Choice” CDs for that year.

Greg earned Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Jazz Studies from the U. of North Texas, and authored the popular trombone text “Advanced Flexibility Studies for the  Jazz Trombonist”.
Locally, Greg can be heard leading his own quintet, as well as playing with other bands. In addition, he leads his own dance bands. He also teaches a select number  of private jazz trombone and composition students in the area.

Greg plays Conn trombones exclusively.

Israeli-American pianist Tali Morgulis, a "pianistic firecracker" hailed for performances "full of power and emotion," delivers vivid, imaginative programs to an ever-growing international audience. Her love of the standard repertoire and passion for chamber music and contemporary works have led to a variety of engagements with many of the world's leading orchestras, ensembles and soloists in the finest concert halls.

Ms. Morgulis has appeared as soloist with the Thüringen Philharmonic, Malaga Symphony Orchestra, Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra, Kaoshung Symphony Orchestra, Haifa Symphony Orchestra and the Orquestra da Camera Theatro Sao Pedro.

Her collaborative performances have seen her paired with such brilliant violinists as Schlomo Mintz, Vadim Gluzman, and Uri Pianka and with numerous chamber ensembles, including the Jupiter Chamber Players, the Firebird Contemporary Ensemble and the Borromeo String Quartet. A regular performer with Houston's composer-led contemporary music group, Musiqa, her advocacy of new music has including commissions and premieres of works by composers such as Marcus Karl Maroney, Lei Liang and Lior Navok.

Ms. Morgulis began her musical studies at the age of four in her native Ukraine. When she was 15, her family immigrated to Israel, where she continued her music education, receiving her bachelor's and master's degrees from the Samuel Rubin Academy of Music in Tel Aviv. With support from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation, she came to the US, receiving her doctoral degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. She was fortunate to study with such wonderful musicians as Esther Balasha, Michael Boguslawsky, Wha Kyung Byun, Lev Natochenny and Patricia Zander.

Winner of First Prize at the Stanislav Stancic International Piano Competition in Zagreb, Ms. Morgulis was also awarded the Special Prize for the Best Performance of a Classical Composition and the Award for Highest Artistic Achievements from the Zagreb Academy of Music. Other awards include Second Prize at the Pinerolo and Third Prize at the Jaen International Piano Competitions in Italy and Spain, respectively, as well as the Audience Choice Award and Third Prize at the Ima Hogg Young Artists Competition in Houston.

Ms. Morgulis taught for three years at Fort Hays State University in Kansas and, since 2008, is Associate Professor of Piano at the University of Houston's Moores School of Music. Other engagements as a teacher and judge have taken her to Brazil, China, Taiwan, Israel and Croatia. She enjoys working with an eclectic group of young performers who come from South America, Asia, Eastern Europe and the US and describe her as "a great motivator who has a unique approach to teaching and an amazing insight into sound."

Tali Morgulis' playing can be heard on her 2006 debut recording on IPA, featuring music by Rachmaninov, Lutosławski, Janáček and Shostakovich. In chamber works, she can be heard in a world premiere recording with Richard Hartshorne of the Brahms cello sonatas performed on double bass and a cello and piano recital program with Boston Symphony Orchestra cellist Mickey Katz. Her second disc of solo works, highlighting Brazilian and Argentinean composers, has been released by Delos in 2013.
