The Rite of Spring at 100
Carolina Performing Arts (CPA) and the IAH have collaborated to create a year-long series of courses, performances, visiting artists and scholars, and academic conferences to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. At the heart of this initiative is a more complete integration of what CPA is presenting in Memorial Hall with what students are doing in their classes and what faculty are working on in their research. Yo-Yo Ma and Bill T. Jones are among the artists who will visit Chapel Hill during this 2012-2013 series, which features 12 new works, nine world premieres and two U.S. premieres performed by celebrated artists from across the globe.

As a result of this partnership with CPA, the UNC campus will engage in a year-long dialogue on the impact of The Rite of Spring and its historical narrative through artistic residencies, masterclasses and interdisciplinary courses. Faculty members have developed 15 new academic courses through this initiative, incorporating the artistic programming as a resource and participating in events and activities throughout the year.
