In honor of college basketball this month's Page to Stage theme is “Jump Ball”; to new beginnings and old adversities.

Brad Field presents a unique view of the art of ballet; and Marc Matney explores dating with a reminder to be careful what you wish for.

Pro Musica: “Out of Darkness into Light”

Thursday, 3/30/2017
7:00PM-8:00PM  
Pro Musica Concert Series--in its sixth season--celebrating the works of living composers-- will present a concert entitled “Out of Darkness into Light”, a new work by composer William Neil (http://williamneil.net/). Premiering this arrangement of the work is the Pro Musica Ensemble: Nancy King (soprano), Danijela Žeželj-Gualdi (violin), Helena Spencer (contrabassoon), Laurent Estoppey (saxophones) and Robert Nathanson (guitar). “Out of Darkness into Light” is really a mystery play interpreting, through composed and improvisational music, the beautiful prayer-like text that Malgosia Sawczuk created after her remarkable restoration work in the St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Chicago.

Mr. Neil will play four short solo pieces as part of the evening. His music has been performed on both sides of the Atlantic and has been featured at the Festival of Music in Evian, France, the Electronic Plus Festival in New York, the Pontino Festival in Italy, and the New Music Chicago Festival.
CAM Members and students with valid college ID: $12.00, Non-Members:$18.00, UNCW Students free with valid ID (tax and fees not included) purchase seats on CAM's website, by phone and at CAM's Visitor Services desk. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.
