Monday, November 11 | Vocal Arts: Cappella Romana performs Kastalsky’s “Requiem”

The LCCC proudly presents the renowned Cappella Romana, in the Northwest Premiere tour of Kastalsky’s “Requiem: Memory Eternal to the Fallen Heroes.”

This special Veterans Day performance, offered twice on the 11th day of the 11th month, will include 24 voices and a work that was composed by Alexander Kastalsky nearly 100 years ago. Kastalsky composed his haunting Requiem during World War I to remember fallen brothers in the Great War across national lines: a call for reconciliation, redemption, and hope. Never performed during the Soviet era, this richly scored Requiem for large a cappella choir receives its Northwest premiere led by guest conductor Steven Fox, nominated for a Grammy for his recording of the work with the Clarion Choir. By honoring a part of our darkest history, Kastalsky’s Memory Eternal helps us together embrace courage and hope for the future.

This will be one of just four locations for the Cappella Romana production (including Portland and Seattle) so don’t miss this special opportunity. A reflection on our shared humanity, with the ensemble whose sound is “like a jeweled light flooding the space” (Los Angeles Times). Veterans receive complimentary tickets, and all those who attend will receive a red poppy.

Cappella Romana is part of the LCCC’s new 2019/20 Vocal Arts Series. Tickets are $42 general, $39 for seniors ages 60 and up, and $20 for youth ages 18 and under.

Sunday, November 17 | Theatre West presents “Deathtrap” by Ira Levin – Sunday Matinee

A roller coaster comic thriller! TheatreWest of Lincoln City presents “Deathtrap” by Ira Levin, Oct. 24 through Nov. 17 at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Directed by Jackie Tasker, by special arrangement from Dramatists Play Service, this “Deathtrap” is complete with table seating, beer and wine service, and plenty of chills and thrills on the LCCC stage.

Comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway smash. Sidney’s plan, devised with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student for co-credit. Or is it? DEATHTRAP provides twists and turns of devilish cleverness, and offers hilariously sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment. The reviews: “It is a classic thriller, a genre with a style, a manner and an audience of its own.” —NY Post. “The intricately fashioned plot contortions brought gasps, the comedy lines drew delighted chortles…” —Hollywood Reporter. “Two-thirds a thriller and one-third a devilishly clever comedy… Suspend your disbelief and be delighted. Scream a little. It’s good for you.” —Cue Magazine. “If you care to assassinate yourself with laughter, try DEATHTRAP.” —TIME Magazine

Sisters Diane, Pamela, and Laura bring powerful lead vocals and haunting harmonies to every song, while Cousin George’s strong, unaffected vocals and original guitar style brings a rich and authentic sound to each piece.

Never one to be restricted by geography or genre, his decades-long career has seen several innovative collaborations with notable musicians of differing styles – Classical, Old-Time, Bluegrass, Pop and Rock as well as the Irish Traditional music for which he is so well known. Some of the eminent players he has worked with are: Grammy winner, singer and instrumentalist Tim O’Brien; Liam O Maonlai, lead singer of the Hothouse Flowers; classical violinists Gilles Apap and Greg Ewer; Old Time favorites, The Foghorn String Band; renowned Irish bands Dervish, Solas and Lunasa and his most recent recording is a collaboration with veteran rock guitarist John Brennan.

Thursday, May 14 | Celtic Series: Banshee in the Kitchen

The LCCC’s 2019-20 Celtic Series concludes with Banshee In The Kitchen. This quartet plays Celtic music with eclectic skill and merry abandon. Touring and recording since 2002, this group has delighted audiences in festivals, theaters, living rooms, and countless other venues from New York to Los Angeles, and as far as Japan.

They take traditional Celtic tunes, find the sweet spot between old and new, stirring it all up with trademark playfulness and musicality they term “banshee-fying.” On stage, National Champion hammered dulcimer player Brenda Hunter (fiddle, hammered dulcimer) and Jill Egland (flute, accordion, whistle) trade off inspired flights of lead and counter melody over dynamic backing by Kat Edmonson (six- and twelve-string guitar, bouzouki).

No strangers to the microphone, the three trade off lead and backing vocals on a choice selection of songs, as well as jocular commentary in between. The sound is completed with the rich bass notes from Kris Wilber, alternating between her acoustic standup bass and electric bass.
