Angélique Kidjo's Remain in Light

Performed Live Sunday, February 16 at 7:00 PM. Presented in partnership with UMS; Tickets available at UMS.org Global pop star Angélique Kidjo has partnered with super producer Jeff Bhasker (Rihanna, Kanye West, Harry Styles, Bruno Mars, Drake, Jay-Z) and an international band to create Remain in Light. This new project finds the Benin-born artist reclaiming rock for Africa and bringing the Talking Heads’ landmark 1980 album full circle, nearly 40 years after it was released. The original was deeply influenced by music from West Africa, notably Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat; Kidjo’s reimagination celebrates the genius of Talking Heads, Brian Eno, and the touchstones that made the original so revered. She injects it with her euphoric singing, explosive percussion, horn orchestrations, and select lyrics performed in languages from her home country.

West Side Story

March 21, 2020 at 8:00 PM at the Michigan.

Don’t let the mysterious shimmer that opens this concert and Diana Syrse’s Colección de Readlidades deceive you–this program packs a remarkably vivacious punch. As the texture broadens the rhythms of Mexico are revealed as the backbone to this gripping piece. To Puerto Rico we go next with Roberto Sierra’s Concerto for Saxophones and Orchestra as the A2SO is joined by saxophonist and Detroit native, James Carter. A virtuosic blend of jazz, classical, and Latin styles come together alive with the spirt of improvisation for this furiously colorful concerto. The energy continues with Arturo Márquez Danzón No. 2. Growing from the foundational rhythm of the clave, Márquez pays his respects to the Cuban danzón tradition. Our evening celebrating the impact of Latin American culture on classical music comes to a dramatic close with the timeless story of love and loss and Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.
