The School of Music’s newly designed Holtschneider Performance Center will be having an 11-day classical and jazz music festival beginning on Nov. 1, not only as a way to celebrate the new three-story, 185,000 square-foot facility, but also to celebrate the School of Music.

There are going to be approximately 40 events at the festival, and the building formally opens on Monday with music classes set to begin in the fall. It will include a 505-seat Mary Patricia Gannon Concert Hall, the 140-seat Murray and Michele Allen Recital Hall, the 80-seat Brennan Family Recital Hall, the 75-seat Mary A. Dempsey and Philip H. Corboy Jazz Hall, and also rehearsal spaces and teaching studios.

Alternative to the main concerts, there are going to be music education workshops, symposia, lecture demos, and master classes.

“With 11 very public days like this, we hope that our message gets through to Chicago and especially beyond Chicago,” said Ronald Caltabiano, Dean of the School of Music.

Some of the festival’s events will be broadcast live on WFMT, a Chicago-based music radio station. In some cases, students enrolled in the School of Music are going to perform in company with the artists.

The Holtschneider Performance Center will be of three buildings that compose the School of Music. Construction dates back to the groundbreaking ceremony in May 2016. The old music school building located on the corner of Fullerton Ave. and Halsted St. is technically Music North, while the Concert Hall located on Belden Ave. is Music South.

First up on the performance list beginning Nov. 1 will be solo performances from soprano Lauren Snouffer, baritone Andrew Garland, and tenor David Portillo. All three artists are going to make appearances with the DePaul Symphonic Choir, the DePaul Concert Orchestra, and Community Music Division’s Community Chorus to put on a performance of “Carmina Burana.”

A wide variety of prominent and professional musicians are scheduled to perform at the festival. Some of the highlights will include three Grammy Award winners in Itzhak Perlman, Ana María Martínez, and Nicholas Payton.

Perlman, a violinist who has taken home 16 Grammy Awards and in 2008 was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for excellence in the recording arts, will preform on Nov. 11 with the DePaul Symphony Orchestra. Martínez, a soprano, is going to perform with opera students on Nov. 4. Payton is both a trumpet master and the founder of the Black American Music Movement. He is scheduled to perform with his on Nov. 9 alongside DePaul’s Jazz Workshop.

The process of getting the festival set up didn’t happen overnight. Caltabiano noted that talks about this began as soon as he took over as the Dean in July 2016. Upon arrival, Caltabiano had discussions with former university president Dennis H. Holtschneider and provost Marten L. denBoer.

“We came up with some parameters about what we thought would be the best way to show off the school,” Caltabiano said. “We went through some talk about how much to spend and how we would publicize it and things like that, and from our end here in the School of Music we had many meetings about (…) what we would like to show off- everything, and how we would like to show it off in all sorts of ways.”

Additionally, sometimes that process involved meetings with the School of Music’s faculty to find ways in which the school could be showed off.

Caltabiano says he believes the festival will play a factor in attracting high school students thinking about one day attending the School of Music.

“I think it will have an impact on recruitment,” Caltabiano said. “Just bringing in artists like Ana María Martínez and Itzhak Perlman and have them be associated with the School of Music is enough to raise our profile a great deal and certainly attract students.”

Caltabiano says the festival will also be a tool for the School of Music to make a name for itself.

“I think it’s just gonna put us kind of in the Chicago music scene,” Heidi Hewitt said, concert manager in the School of Music. “Having people of that caliber on our stage makes us a venue like any other classical or live music venue in the city.”

Another musician who is planning to hit the stage under the bright lights is solo percussionist Evelyn Glennie, who will be performing on Nov. 10 with DePaul’s Wind Ensemble. Glennie was selected as one of of the two laureates for the 2015 Polar Music Prize.

Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, a classical music chamber orchestra based out of New York, will be performing on Nov. 6.

Prices for the event will range from free of charge up to $45. Students enrolled in the School of Music will have free admission to all festivities. Given both the prestige of the artists performing, these prices might turn out to be a steal that separates this music festival from others.

“Even the highest priced ticket is incredibly reasonable to see someone of the caliber as Itzhak Perlman or Nicholas Payton,” Brian Barasch, Director of Marketing and Communications in the School of Music, said. “People that you might spend hundreds of dollars to see elsewhere, you’re gonna see them here for a fraction of that.”

The festival will be advertised in a variety of ways. There are going to be direct mail pieces sent to alumni as well as those who have previously expressed interest in attending performances at the School of Music as a means to generally announce the festival. The School of Music will also be conducting print and online advertising via email communications.

Though the festival will take place in the School of Music, Barasch says students from across the university will find something that sparks their interest.

“I think there’s novelty in a new building and people wanting to see this beautiful new space,” Barasch said. “And hopefully they’ll come here and they’ll see it and they’ll be drawn in and express a desire to, while here, see a performance and they’ll love it and continue to come back.”

    Exactly six months ago today I sent this to Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com;
    “Hello Dr. Wakina
    I am writing to see if you can help me reconcile with my partner. We both love each other very much but we have had to face many obstacles. Though I am stronger mentally and emotionally and he is and he often runs from problems and ends the relationship then later regrets his decision once he has calmed down.
    I have been to counseling, worked on myself, and I’m very spiritual. I have made mistakes, learned from them and want to be a better woman for him. Both our hearts are broken being apart, we have both tried to see other people but we realize no one else measures up.
    I love him very much. Can you help us to forgive our pasts and reconcile and have a stronger relationship? His pride and ego get in the way, he is very stubborn and worries what people will think if we get back together.
    Please help”
    My utmost effort payed off and we are happier together after the goodwill spell from Dr. Wakina

    I started seeking for help when I was desperate to see the good in my life because I was blinded by deception, expecting loyalty from a man who can’t be honest with himself. For 2 years’ happiness seems overrated while depression and anxiety took over my life.
    One of the hardest thing I did was not not moving on because I trust my marriage will work again someday.
    During the search to regain my sight and improve my marriage, I came across this email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com owned by Dr.Wakina love spell master. Immediately after a successful love spell was cast, my life was given a meaning, my husband changed his attitudes and started focusing on me and the family. He became my everything. We became truthful to ourselves.
    I appreciate the time and effort he (Dr. Wakina) put into giving our lives a meaning.

    Not much to say concerning Dr. Wakina, we all know Dr. Wakina love spell is capable of resurrecting a dead-end relationship. This is just a simply thank you for bringing back my ex-wife after three years and four months of ongoing feud. His mysterious spell worked as testified by people he has helped, he saved my married just as promised. I will conclude by saying with Dr. spell you don’t need to fight anymore or go through pains just to save your marriage. His contact email is (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com)

    I cannot believe this… MY EX HUSBAND IS BACK TO ME!!!
    My name is Michelle. This is a story of Doctor Odunga who brought my ex husband back to me in 3 days of contact. He told me me he would do it but i didn’t believe him but decided to give him a try and to my greatest surprise, my ex husband came home and started playing with the kids and gave me a kiss on my cheek, knelt down on his knees and begged me for leaving without a goodbye. I heard he had woman he was seeing before he left me and i was devastated which made me seek help in a spell caster such as Doctor Odunga. I also met this man through a testimony about him and i contacted his email at odungaspelltemple@gmail. com and when i explained things to him, he told me not to worry. I am very happy today that my husband who left me for over 2 years, came back home. I asked him what about the other woman and he said that was his past and nothing will ever make him leave again. I am thankful to Doctor Odunga. Contact him to help you now at odungaspelltemple@gmail. com

    Hello everyone, I must start by saying that I didn’t go into marriage with expectation that it will fail after 8 years. I and my spouse where not compassionate to ourselves. Trying to work out my marriage was self-defeating, we don’t really know why we no longer find ourselves attractive anymore. All we secretly thought was divorce, we couldn’t agree or communicate anymore, it was emotionally difficult moments when we face each other in the bedroom.
    I know that a phycologist might not be able to help me go through divorce because it has never worked for me. Divorcing could traumatize our kids, I can’t let them be emotionally crippled.
    I remember my grandmother once told me that not issues can be resolved physically, I should try solving some issues spiritually through a well-known spiritual doctor.
    I can provide evidence that my life and marriage got more better and interesting with so much love and fulfilled promises after Dr. Wakina lighted up our fire with a magnificent love spell with the aid of dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com.
    The spell work I never regarded rewrote my story. I’m touched beyond words, thanks Dr. Wakina.

    Hey everyone
    I’m so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again…
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact.
