Faculty Recital
Naughty Tales for
the Grown-Up Child

SUN, MAR. 26 | 2 PM
ZINGG RECITAL HALL

We traditionally think of tales as bedtime fodder for children: Grimm’s Fairy Tales, The Tales of Beatrice Potter, or Tales of the South. But childhood fables can also have a dark undertone: ravenous wolves, evil witches, or blood-thirsty giants. MUTA faculty and students explore the many moods of storytelling in a recital featuring the delightful wit of Roald Dahl, plus some famous musical tales from Hoffmann and the Vienna Woods.

Chico Bach Festival
Brahms Versus Bach
SUN, APR. 2 | 2 PM
HARLEN ADAMS THEATRE

Brahms loved the music of Bach! This program will compare and contrast the two composers with preludes and fugues and chorale preludes. Although Brahms' musical language shows a difference of 150 years, the strong influence of Bach's compositional brilliance is clearly evident in Brahms. Jonathan Dimmock makes a return to Chico for this performance on the magnificent Centennial Organ.

Humanities Center Lecture
Patrick McCray: Innovation's Shadow
WED, APR. 5 | 7:30 PM
ZINGG RECITAL HALL

W. Patrick McCray, professor of History at the University of California, Santa Barbara, will discuss how revolutions—technological, political, or otherwise—are messy. Throughout history industrial revolutions are viewed through the lens of innovation, but if we leave innovation’s shadow, we discover new insights into the nature of invention and innovation. McCray is the author of the awardwinning book The Visioneers: How an Elite Group of Scientists Pursued Space Colonies, Nanotechnologies, and a Limitless Future.
