April events at UMS opens with Artemis Quartet and includes AA native Colin Stetson


The 2017-18 season at UMS will come to an end in April with another exciting lineup.

UMS kicks the month off with a performance by the Artemis Quartet (see below for more details). Classical audiences will also enjoy a recital appearance by pianist Murray Perahia as well as a concert performance of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo by Apollo’s Fire.

South African Jazz Legend Abdullah Ibrahim and his band Ekaya will perform a special tribute to The Jazz Epistles. This program will be performed in honor of Ibrahim’s fellow Jazz Epistles member Hugh Masekela, who passed away from prostate cancer in January.

Ann Arbor native and saxophonist Colin Stetson will perform his unique reimagining of Henryk Górecki’s iconic third symphony.

And the Collectif Kiss and Cry returns with Cold Blood, a live-action theater/dance/film experience that’s filmed and projected in real-time.
