Musicians from the Civic Orchestraof Chicago perform the piece orchestrated for woodwind quintet, brass quintet, and percussion under the direction ofMichael Lewanski, Assistant Professor ofInstrumental Ensembles at the DePaul University School of Music.TWIN SPACES, INTERTWINEDComposed byANTHONY CHEUNGASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF MUSICThe Civic Orchestra of ChicagoComposer and pianist ANTHONY CHEUNGcomposed today's piece to celebrate the Universityof Chicago's 125-year legacy.Cheung is co-founder, co-artistic director, and pianistof the New York-based Talea Ensemble, which iscommitted to promoting new, groundbreaking musicthrough commissions and innovative programming.In this role, he has collaborated with numerouscomposers as a performer and curator. Last year,Cheung released Roundabouts, a portrait CD of fiveworks on the Ensemble Modern Medien label, anda new disc will appear on the Wergo label in 2016.His compositions have been commissioned by someof the world's leading orchestras, including theNew York Philharmonic and the Frankfurt RadioSymphony Orchestra; performed by the ChicagoSymphony Orchestra's MusicNOW ensemble,the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France,and new music specialists such as the EnsembleIntercontemporain and Ensemble Modern; andfeatured at numerous international festivals.In addition to his role as assistant professor in theDepartment of Music at the University of Chicago,Cheung is also serving as the Daniel R.

From2012 to 2013, he was in residence at the AmericanAcademy in Rome as a recipient of the Rome Prize,an exclusive honor for emerging artists and scholars.About his composition, Cheung writes: "TwinSpaces, Intertwined was written very specifically withRockefeller Chapel and its possibilities for acousticaland spatialized configurations in mind. The ideais to fill the chapel with echoes and refrains, withthe very physical sensation of calls and responses,especially in the horns, which serve as the connectivetissue between the two quintets (one with winds, theother brass). These quintets are both independentof one another, with their own identities, as wellas highly interdependent, sharing much materialand reflecting it back and forth. Each percussionistis primarily tied to one specific quintet, but is inconversation with the other as well, and the two forma cohesive whole. The experience will be differentfor everyone, depending on where they are seatedin the audience and their relative proximity to eachensemble. The tone of the piece, while in many wayscelebratory because of this specific occasion andreflected in quite jubilant passages at its climaxes, isalso one of contemplation, reflection, and mystery."THE CONVOCATION ADDRESSIntroduction given byERIC D.

M. Skinner(the others being at Yale, Princeton, and Michigan).These organs are considered among the finest examplesof twentieth-century romantic organs built in America.On November I, 1928, Rockefeller's organ, Opus634, was unveiled at a recital by Lynnwood Farnam,reportedly to a crowd of over 2,500 admirers.In the Rockefeller organ, Skinner fully invested hisgenius for realizing a full orchestral sound, with acomplete collection of voices and many soft etherealeffects. Many of the large pipe scales, which arenecessary to achieve a full sound in a building the sizeof the Chapel, are no longer built and thus cannot befound in contemporary organs. The original Chapelorgan included four manuals and had 6,6ro organpipes in ro8 ranks; since its 2008 restoration, it nowhas 8,565 pipes in 132 ranks. The organ's bay of pipes,located in the Chapel chancel, is a work of art in itselfand is an integral element of the interior architectureof Rockefeller. In addition to the chancel organlocated at the front of the Chapel, Skinner installeda gallery organ in the upper balcony of the Chapel,to accompany the gallery choir. The organs can beplayed independently or as one, using either console. THE CARILLONThe Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillonwas installed during the summer of 1932, a year afterits sister instrument at Riverside Church in New YorkCity, and was dedicated at Thanksgiving that year.Both carillons are the masterworks of the Gillett &Johnston bell foundry of Croydon, England. Carillonsof this size had never before been built and have notbeen constructed since. The Chicago instrument,comprised of 72 bells and roo tons of bronze, is thesingle largest musical instrument ever assembled. Itsbells were cast over a three-year period and includea massive 18.5-ton bourdon sounding a low C#.Since carefully tuned carillon bells of this size hadnever been created, the design consultant, FrederickMayer (organist and choirmaster at West Point), tookthe ground-breaking step of placing the fourteenlargest bells below the playing cabin so that the soundof these bells would not deafen the performer to thesmaller bells. Similarly, he laid out these 58 smallerbells so that the tiniest of them would be directlyabove the cabin, with the larger ones higher in thetower. He also placed trapdoors in the roof of thecabin, thus providing the carillonneur with a balancedsound. In the I960s, several changes were made to theinstallation and a major restoration of this instrumentwas undertaken from 2006-08. Today, the layout ofbells favors the audience rather than the carillonneur.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO 525TH CONVOCATIONACADEMIC DRESSThe robes worn by participants in academic ceremoniesoriginated when European universities were beingformed in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Sincemany of the instructors carne from religious orders andtaught in unheated and drafty buildings, they adaptedtheir religious robes for use as the university attire.The long robe with an attached cape or hood becamethe standard and variation in the costume indicatedthe rank of the person wearing it. They were wornevery day and served to distinguish scholars and theirstudents from other citizens. The apparel worn byuniversity faculty that is seen in old engravings isremarkably similar to that which is worn today. Thegown is a symbol of the democracy of scholarshipsince it covers any clothing indicating other rankor status. While everyday fashions have changed,universities retained the earlier style for formalattire to be worn by students, graduates, faculty,and university officials on ceremonial occasions.European universities each developed their ownstyles and colors of academic dress, and some of thedifferences seen in the academic procession todayillustrate that variety. In the United States, however,an intercollegiate congress in 1895 agreed on a singlestandard for academic dress in this country thathas been adopted by most American colleges anduniversities. Individuals with bachelor's degrees wear a black gown, which has long pointed sleeves.The gown of master's degree holders is also black,with sleeves that are squared at the end. Doctor'sgowns are fuller with velvet facings down the frontand three bars on the generous bell-shaped sleeves.While the usual color is black, within the past halfcentury some American universities have adoptedgowns of a color appropriate for each school; at theUniversity of Chicago our doctoral gown is maroon.The cape of the earliest academic costumeshas become a hood, worn, by individuals withdoctoral degrees, over the shoulders and hangingbehind. The lining of the hood is folded out andits colors indicate the school from which thewearer obtained his or her degree. The velvetborder designates the degree area of study (whitefor arts, yellow for science, blue for philosophy,drab for business, green for medicine, purple forlaw, and red for divinity). University of Chicagohonorary degree recipients receive a hood with awhite facing (doctor of humane letters), purple(doctor of laws), or yellow (doctor of science).The first right of a freed Roman slave was theprivilege of wearing a cap, so the academic cap isthe sign of the freedom of scholarship. Althoughthe flat square cap or mortarboard is most usual,Chicago's doctoral cap is an octagonal tarn of velvet.THE MARSHAL AND THE STUDENT MARSHALSThe office of Marshal of the University wasestablished in 1895 to assist with the conduct ofofficial ceremonies. Until 1903 the Marshal was anundergraduate upperclassman, assisted by otherundergraduate upperclassmen and by membersof the faculty. Since 1903 the Marshal has been amember of the faculty, assisted by other members ofthe faculty and by undergraduate upperclassmen.The Marshal, Vice-Marshal, and Assistant Marshalsof the University of Chicago wear maroon doctor'srobes with alternating black velvet and gold metallicANDREW DAVISHELMA DIKRACHEL FULTON BROWNGIULIA GALLIRICHARD H.

Graham School ofContinuing Liberal and Professional Studies, fourgraduate divisions (Biological Sciences, Humanities,Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences), six graduateprofessional schools (Divinity School, Law School,Pritzker School of Medicine, Irving B. Harris GraduateSchool of Public Policy Studies, School of SocialService Administration, and the University of ChicagoBooth School of Business), the Institute for MolecularEngineering, and a diverse collection of academicsupport units and resources, including libraries, researchinstitutes, clinics, museums, theaters, and a universitypress. The University has more than 2,200 faculty andother academic personnel, and an enrollment of over15,000 students. The zry-acre campus is located alongthe Midway Plaisance in Hyde Park, a residentialcommunity on Lake Michigan south of Chicago's Loop.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGOThe University of Chicago was founded in 1890by John D. Rockefeller, biblical scholar WilliamRainey Harper, and Chicago-area Baptists. TheUniversity's Articles of Incorporation commit theinstitution to excellence in both undergraduateand graduate education, an explicit policy of co­education, and an atmosphere of non-sectarianism.Harper agreed to become the first president of theUniversity on the condition that he be allowedto establish a university that would be unlike anyother. He conceived of a university that wouldemphasize the creation of new knowledge and"make the work of investigation primary." To thisend, the University has always been dedicatedto excellence in research and has sought themost distinguished scholars for its faculty.Over the years, the University and its faculty havehad a major impact on American higher education.Faculty scholarship has shaped several essentialdisciplines and established important and distinctive"Chicago schools" in such disparate fields aseconomics, evolutionary biology, sociology, literarycriticism, anthropology, and law and economics.More than eighty Nobel laureates have beenmembers of the faculty, researchers, or students atthe University. Programmatic innovations originatingat the University include the invention of the four­quarter system, the establishment of a coherentprogram of general education for undergraduates,the initiation of a full-time medical school teachingfaculty, and the development of extension coursesand programs in the liberal arts for adults. The University's English Collegiate Gothic buildings,built of gray Indiana limestone, were designed to frameshady, green quadrangles. Contemporary campusbuildings have been designed in keeping with theoriginal Gothic theme while drawing from the traditionof great modern architecture for which the city ofChicago is famous. Eero Saarinen and Ludwig Miesvan der Rohe designed striking buildings for the LawSchool and the School of Social Service Administration.The National Trust for Historic Preservation praised theUniversity for its insistence on architectural continuityover "a century of social and academic change."On July I, 2006, Robert J. Zimmer becamethe University's thirteenth president.r«,,� Paper fromresponsible sources��� FSC-C110794MIX
