8:00 pm - 9:30 pm - Valley Performing Arts Center, Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/john-mauceri/

The distinguished and extraordinary career of John Mauceri has brought him not only to the world's greatest opera companies and symphony orchestras, but also to the musical stages of Broadway and Hollywood, as well as the most prestigious halls of academia. His mentors include Leopold Stokowski, Leonard Bernstein, and Carlo Maria Giulini. One of the world's most accomplished recording artists, he is the recipient of  Grammy, Tony, Olivier, Drama Desk, Edison, two Emmy and four Deutsche Schallplatten awards, among other prestigious recognitions. A graduate of Yale University, where he taught for 15 years, he is completing his seventh year as chancellor of the University of North Carolina's School of the Arts, the nation's unique stand-alone public university of conservatories in music, dance, drama, filmmaking, and design & production. For sixteen seasons at the Hollywood Bowl, Mr. Mauceri broke all records by leading over 300 performances before a collective audience of 4 million people with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, which was created for him by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association.

Mauceri will present Music In The Life Of A Great City, Rite of Spring at 100. This inspired work looks at the powerful influence that Stravinsky's music had on Hollywood film composers in the 40s and 50s. It is an influence that can still be felt in today's contemporary film scores.

8:00 pm - 9:30 pm - Valley Performing Arts Center, Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/an-evening-with-rufus-wainwright/

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and pop music auteur Rufus Wainwright is one of the most popular and critically-acclaimed artists of his generation. Born into a musical family (his father is legendary folk singer Loudon Wainwright III and his mother was the equally-influential Canadian singer Kate McGarrigle) he exploded onto the scene in the late-nineties with both his debut self-titled album and its follow-up, Poses.

Famous for his distinctive, deeply emotional voice and mastery of the piano, Wainwright has built a vast following.  His prolific output includes a much-celebrated series of albums (Want I & II, 2003-2004), an opera (Prima Donna, 2009), and seven studio and two live recordings.
