Birth of the Cool: A Tribute to Miles Davis

Blue Room, Sutton Hall

Enjoy a night of live jazz as members of the IUP Department of Music perform the music from the critically acclaimed compilation album of American jazz great Miles Davis.

Released in 1957, Birth of the Cool compiles eleven tracks recorded by Davis’s nonet for the label over the course of three sessions during 1949 and 1950. Featuring unusual instrumentation and several notable musicians, the music consisted of innovative arrangements influenced by classical music techniques such as polyphony and marked a major development in post-bebop jazz.

As the title suggests, these recordings are considered seminal in the history of cool jazz. Most of them were originally released in the 10-inch 78-rpm format and are all approximately three minutes long.

Masterclass: The Art of Accompaniment

Gorell Recital Hall, Second Floor Sutton Hall

The campus and community is invited by the IUP Department of Music to observe expert instructor and coach Jan Halmes in a free masterclass that will feature student vocalists and their accompanists.  A dedicated accompanist since the age of 12, Halmes has studied Art Song with masters such as Hans Hotter, Elly Amling, Otto Edelmann and Walter Berry.  She also has traveled and performed extensively in Europe and China as an accompanist for choral groups and soloists.  In a master class, all the students (and often audience members) watch and listen as the master works with each of the performers.  The student soloist and his/her piano accompanist usually perform a single piece which they have prepared, and the master will give them advice, often including anecdotes about the composer, demonstrations of how to perform certain passages, and corrections of common errors. The student is then usually expected to perform the piece again, in light of the master's comments.

Free Admission.
