On June 30, 2013 world-renowned conductor, educator, John Mauceri will step down as UNC School of the Arts Chancellor, but he’s certainly going out with a bang.

On Saturday, April 27 at 7:30 pm in the Stevens Center he’ll conduct the UNCSA Symphony Orchestra in a whopper of a concert—his last as Chancellor. Symphonic Dances celebrates the enduring legacy of Sergei Diaghilev and his Ballet Russe with Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, and Jeux—his final masterpiece which premiered 100 years ago in Paris. Also Alexander Borodin’s Polvtsian Dances, Ravel’s Daphnis and Chole 2nd Suite and a world concert premiere by UNCSA music alumnus Leo Hurley. It’s his impressionistic score to the 2012 UNCSA dance film Molly Under the Moon, conducted by Michael Dwinell.
