Jeffrey Kunkel, Director
With Guest Artist Mario Adnet
This year’s Beatrice Crawford Memorial Concert* presents a true taste of Brazilian musical culture. One of Brazil’s busiest and most influential composers, arrangers, producers, and guitarists, Mario Adnet is a living legend. Since his debut in 1984, he has released numerous recordings, including Ouro Negro (the definitive renditions of the music of Moacir Santos), the Grammy-winning Jobim Sinfónico, Jobim Jazz, From the Heart, Afrosamba Jazz (with Philippe Baden Powell), and Vinicius e os Maestros. The MSU Jazz Band I will perform a variety of his arrangements and compositions under the direction of Dr. Kunkel.
*This concert is a free public performance supported by a generous grant from the Keating Crawford Foundation. It is presented at Montclair State University in memory of Beatrice Crawford, a Montclair musician who was the director of two choral groups “The Madrigals” and “The Choraliers.”
**Tickets, free of charge, are required for admission

L. Howard Fox Theatre
Take an uncharted voyage to a metaphorical island, floating in the midst of a mysterious sea. Far from outside influences, we find a timeless tribe of people living out the rites and rituals of their humanity. They are odd, silly, naive and unaware of the world around them -- so unlike ourselves…or are they?
Developed with the creative input of sixteen BFA Theatre students during a residency with award-winning theatre artist Kari Margolis, Insula proves that no person is an island.
*No charge for University-enrolled undergraduates

Japanese-born artist Hiroyuki Hamada's initial interest was in drawings and paintings.
