Elling Swings Sinatra Presenting Series Friday, September 5, 2014, 8:00 PM

Sharing impressive vocal range, flawless technique and authentic emotion, it’s no wonder Grammy-winning Kurt Elling turns his attention to the one-and-only Frank Sinatra: “The Voice.”

Elling’s ambitious; on-the-money take on music by the Chairman of the Board is more than a tribute concert. When only Elvis and Michael Jackson rival Sinatra as best-selling solo vocalist of all time. When Bono, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Sara Bareilles and John Legend admire his swagger and musical complexity. When you take on an icon of generations around the world, it’s a mission Elling is ready for. Named best male vocalist for 14 consecutive years in Downbeat’s annual critics poll, Elling and his commanding baritone have matured into vocal music’s modern standard.

“No singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling.” The Washington Post


All ticket holders are invited to a 10th Anniversary party after the performance.

Rosanne Cash Presenting Series Friday, September 12, 2014, 8:00 PM

The praise keeps coming for Rosanne Cash and her album The River & The Thread—a reflective collection of tunes evocative of the many flavors of the American south, which was inspired by road trips from Alabama to Tennessee.

Performing music from her recent album, The River & The Thread, she will be joined by her regular collaborator (and husband) guitarist John Leventhal, as they explore the Southern landscape—physical, musical, emotional—and examine its lasting impression on our society and Cash.

The River & The Thread is sweeping and personal for Cash, capturing a unique, multi-generational cast of characters—from a Civil War soldier off to fight in Virginia to a New Deal-era farmer in Arkansas to a contemporary Alabama couple. While Cash and Leventhal found inspiration in swampy Delta blues, gospel, Appalachian folk, country and rock—the result is completely contemporary. Cash’s clear voice and Leventhal’s persuasive guitar work reach another career peak.

The oldest daughter of country music icon Johnny Cash and stepdaughter of June Carter Cash of the legendary Carter Family, she holds a lineage rooted in the very beginning of American country music, with its deep cultural and historical connections to the South.

“The Seasons of Sebastian.” Music of Johann Sebastian Bach and those he inspired.

The program concludes with Bach, the Eternal Muse, in works by Felix Mendelssohn, Ethel Smyth and Lionel Rogg that offer homage to Bach's musical and spiritual legacy.

A graduate of Indiana University and Northwestern University, Janette Fishell is a recitalist and teacher of international standing.

Bach for the first time at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music.
