With five Grammy awards, including Best R&B Performance, acclaimed recordings and incredible live performances under her belt, Hathaway, born to music royalty, has created a musical legacy all her own.
As Theatre UAB’s musical theater BFA program grows, students are up to the challenge of this sophisticated Stephen Sondheim musical, which includes his most popular song, “Send in the Clowns.”
Eleven students will attend the conference, with registration paid by donors. Exhibitions by student and professional artists are planned at Sloss and around Birmingham, including UAB’s Project Space.
Students studying voice are offered free screenings of their vocal cords by professionals in the UAB Voice Center to check for overuse, allergies or reflux and to prevent potential damage.
For this student-led, citywide day of service, organized by the UAB Leadership and Service Council, hundreds of student volunteers participate each fall and spring to serve at sites throughout Birmingham.
The musical performance “Air in a Loop” will feature four world premiere compositions by members of the Birmingham Art Music Alliance, performed within Jessica Angel’s site-specific, large-scale installation.
The concert will feature music from the choir’s “MIRRORS” and “Nu-Soul City” recordings, plus classics and director Kevin Turner’s ode to the four little girls killed in the 1963 bombing, “You Don’t Know What I Could Have Been.”
Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar, an Alys Stephens Center favorite, will perform with a six-piece classical ensemble and focus on her album “Home” for her Birmingham performance.
