There are some unexpected performances too: professional skateboarders performing with DJs celebrating improvisation in sports and music; a dance presentation, "Idiot-syncrasy," that bills itself as "beyond the limits of common sense"; and an intense one-person show exploring gender identity presented at a boxing gym in Detroit. The mix of classic and iconoclastic presentations showcases Fischer's stamp on the UMS as a presenter of "uncommon and engaging experiences."

Fischer's vision, organization, people skills, and boundless energy have won UMS widespread acclaim and the 2014 National Medal of Arts for "a lifetime of creative excellence." Nationally recognized foundations have awarded UMS millions in the past decade to support its innovative programming and far-reaching community engagement.

Now the challenge is to find Fischer's successor. "I can't think of a job I would like worse than the committee to replace Ken," says UMS board member David Herzig. "Replacing an iconic leader is a tough job."
