NIU Fine Arts Series 2000-2001 Season Events  

Rhythm & Brass, 6-piece jazz ensemble
Tuesday March 27, 7:30 p.m., Carl Sandburg Auditorium, Holmes Student Center 
Duke Ellington reserved the term "Beyond Category" as the highest praise for those artists who transcended normal boundaries. Since their first season in 1993, Rhythm & Brass has lived up to the ideal of music unbound by time and geography of culture. Rhythm & Brass demonstrates their unique ability to incorporate influences as divergent as Josquin Dex Prez, Pink Floyd, John Coltrane, Johann Sebastian Bach and, of course, Duke Ellington. The ensemble discovers the commonalties in these influences and, in their own eclectic compositions, fearlessly molds them into a singular concert experience. Rhythm & Brass weaves a tapestry of sound, color and theater that is simply beyond category.

Chanticleer, all-male a cappella vocal ensemble
Tuesday, April 24, 7:30 p.m., Carl Sandburg Auditorium, Holmes Student Center 
With its seamless blend of twelve male voices, ranging from countertenor to bass, Chanticleer has earned international renown as "an orchestra of voices." This all-male group performs over 100 concerts a year across the U.S., Europe and Asia, consistently containing repertoire as diverse as Renaissance, sacred music spirituals, folk songs and commissioned works. Chanticleer, the only full-time classical vocal ensemble in the U.S., has developed a remarkable reputation over its 22-year history for its interpretation of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to venturesome new music. The ensemble recently won a Grammy Award for their 1999 release, "Colors of Love."

The NIU Fine Art Series of the Campus Activities Board is funded in part by the NIU Student Association. Performances are open to all. The series received additional funding support from the Illinois Arts Council and the Heartland Arts Fund, in cooperation with The National Endowment for the Arts. Promotional support is provided by B-95 FM, Northern Public Radio (WNIU/WNIJ), The Daily Chronicle/DeKalb County Weekly, and the Sycamore News.
