A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN - October 10-29, 2017
Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became an iconic rock ‘n’ roll queen. Her unmistakable voice, laced with raw emotion and Southern Comfort, made her the must-see “rock mama” from Monterey to Woodstock. Fueled by a live band and psychedelic performances of her unforgettable songs like “Piece of my Heart,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and “Cry Baby,” A Night with Janis Joplin is a powerful dramatic celebration of Janis, and her inspirations—including Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith.

Contemporary Dance from Cuba:
MALPASO DANCE COMPANY
- October 18-19, 2017
As the “crown jewel” in the emerging Cuban contemporary dance scene, Malpaso Artistic Director Osnel Delgado has been able to attract both international choreographers and new voices in Cuban choreography. With balletic precision and muscular, grounded footwork, Malpaso’s dancers are a sheer delight to watch, not only in Delgado’s own work (like Ocaso) but in that by Ron K. Brown (Why You Follow) and Indomitable Waltz (Aszure Barton)—all three of which will be part of their McCarter debut program. (Berlind)

JOSHUA BELL, violin - November 1, 2017
Joshua Bell is the nation’s number one violinist and one of music’s true superstars, capturing the public’s attention as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, orchestra leader, and conductor. You can’t miss him on his numerous Live From Lincoln Center specials and you’ve heard him on movie soundtracks. And since his musical outlook encompasses progressive bluegrass, rock, jazz, and every other genre you can think of, your music library is bound to include at least one of his more than 40 album releases. (Matthews)

SONGS OF FREEDOM - October 22, 2017
In the 1960s, three legendary and prolific vocalists made an indelible mark in music through their songs, each expressing freedom in various ways. Joni Mitchell composed and sang about the freedom of love, Abbey Lincoln expressed freedom of her individuality and race through her lyricism, and Nina Simone demanded freedom politically through song. Their contributions will be interpreted by three contemporary singers: Theo Bleckmann, Alicia Olatuja, and Jazzmeia Horn, under the musical direction of Ulysses Owens Jr. (Berlind)
