Best Best Break from Cramming for Exams
And getting your eyes opened to other cultures and other genres in the process! The University of Rhode Island’s Great Performances series will celebrate its 25th anniversary in the 2006-’07 season. World-class artists come to campus each year, offering students, staff, and the general public a great venue to see performers outside Boston or New York. Last year’s lineup included a performance art troupe that combined chamber music and readings from Asian women poets (the Silken Phoenix); two chamber music groups (Les Violons du Roy and the St. Lawrence String Quartet); Andean musicians Inca Son; Middle Eastern dancers from the Mosaic Dance Theater; and an a cappella group called the Western Wind doing music from composers who survived the Holocaust. The final presentation this year will be the comedy improv team of Chicago City Limits, on May 7 at the Fine Arts Center in Kingston.
