Enso String Quartet – Interlochen Arts Festival – August 19, 2017


One of its generation’s most compelling string ensembles, the Grammy-nominated Enso String Quartet brings its mastery and music to Corson Auditorium. The quartet has been described by Strad magazine as “thrilling,” and praised by the Washington Post for its “glorious sonorities.” This gifted quartet has won top prizes at the Concert Artists Guild competition and the Banff International String Quartet Competition, and is, in the words of Classical Voice, “one of the eminent string quartets of our era.”

The Enso’s members are all drawn to the string quartet repertoire because of its richness and diversity, and the ensemble is committed to exploring the four corners of that repertoire. The Enso regularly performs the classics of the string quartet literature, but also champions lesser-known works that deserve to be heard, along with much contemporary music, including works the Enso has commissioned. The ensemble also performs its own transcriptions, including arrangements of 16th-Century Renaissance music. “The quartet’s ability to present music of three completely different idioms so persuasively puts it in the running for the mantle of Quartet of the Future”(Palm Beach ArtsPaper). World premieres this season include commissioned works by New Zealander Alex Taylor and Australian Brenton Broadstock, and in recent seasons they have premiered quartets written for them by Dame Gillian Whitehead, Kurt Stallmann and Paul Moravec. The Enso also gave the world premiere of Joan Tower’s Dumbarton Quintet, with the composer at the keyboard.

An Evening with Tom Stanton – National Writers Series – August 25, 2017 – (Cancelled)

An Evening with Tom StantonCANCELLED

Ticketholders will be contacted by the City Opera House for a full refund.

Again, we are sorry for any inconvenience and hope to reschedule this event in the future.

<><><><><><>

They say that nothing is more American than baseball and apple pie. In his latest book, Terror in the City of Champions, award-winning writer Tom Stanton weaves a masterful narrative latticework, dishing up a nefarious slice of terror, stardom, and baseball.

Hard-hit by the Depression, the Motor City watches as an undefeated, local boxing hero named Joe Lewis begins to attract national attention. Meanwhile, the Tigers, Red Wings, and Lions fight their way to three national championship titles in the same year. It is amid the combatting climates of scarcity and triumph that a secret, Klan-like terrorist organization known as the Black Legion waged its campaign of terror–murdering enemies, bombing meeting places, flogging associates, and contemplating armed rebellion. Among its tens of thousands of members were politicians and prominent citizens.

Stanton’s fascination with baseball has led him to write six other works of nonfiction including The Final Season, the critically acclaimed memoir about Tiger Stadium, and Quill-Award finalist Ty and The Babe. He now tackles the true-crime genre. Researching Terror in the City of Champions Stanton delved into FBI and State Police files, conducted extensive interviews, and tapped into archives. Chapters from the book were excerpted by The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press.

Stanton joins us to discuss his New York Times bestseller in sports, which was also a top-seller in Michigan’s independent bookstores last year. Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss called the book a “captivating slice of American history.” Columnist George F. Will praised it as well, and in a starred review Kirkus commended its “first-rate reporting,” calling it “a seminar in how to employ context in investigative and historical journalism.”

Stanton is a professor of journalism at the University of Detroit Mercy and a former Knight-Wallace Fellow at the University of Michigan. He lives in New Baltimore, Michigan.
