Maryland Opera Studio: Così fan tutte

Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Kay Theatre

Does fidelity exist? When a cynical old bachelor convinces two young soldiers to test the fidelity of their fiancées, comedy comes close to catastrophe and reveals the flaws of human nature.

Oscar Peñas, guitar

Mansion at Strathmore

The Catalan-born composer breathes new life into jazz music with his unique “transnational cool” style. Listen for traditional jazz that’s laced with hints of flamenco and South American grooves, plus the unmistakable flair of the now New York-based Peñas’s native Barcelona.

UMD Wind Ensemble: Fanfare, Fugue, Fiestas

Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Dekelboum Concert Hall

UMWE opens this concert with Frank Ticheli’s regal Pacific Fanfare, and an adaptation of J.S. Bach’s Fantasia and Fugue in C Minor. In Leonard Bernstein’s “Profanation” from Symphony No. 1, disjointed fragments of liturgical melodies evolve into a riotous pagan ritual to dramatize the biblical story of Jeremiah, a prophet who was mocked for prophesizing the destruction of Jerusalem. The final piece on the program, H. Owen Reed’s La Fiesta Mexicana, depicts a typical fiesta through adaptations of Mexican folk music.
