Sunday, January 19 | Celebrate MLK with Inspirational Sounds Gospel Choir

Inspirational Sounds Gospel Choir seeks to promote the heritage of African-American gospel musical traditions, which are rooted in American music. Organization membership includes singers from Eugene, Springfield, Veneta, and Corvallis. The group is a unique gospel choir because it includes a large percentage of non-African Americans but still retains a traditional Black gospel choir sound. The choir encourages audiences to become involved, joining them in clapping, shouting, singing, and celebrating.

The group is well known throughout the state of Oregon for its energetic renditions of gospel music and is often featured at Martin Luther King Day celebrations in Portland and Eugene.

Inspirational Sounds Gospel Choir is part of the LCCC’s new 2019/20 Vocal Arts Series. Tickets are $15 general, $13 for seniors ages 60 and up, and $5 for youth ages 18 and under.

Saturday, January 25 | Concert: John Reischman & the Jaybirds

Welcome back John Reischman and the Jaybirds, who have five critically acclaimed albums, two Juno nominations and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations to their credit.

Their most recent album, “On That Other Green Shore,” they prove they are an accomplished, experienced band at the peak of their powers, with musicianship of the very highest order.

Reserved advance tickets are $25 adults, $23 seniors and $10 for youth. $2 LCCC member discount will apply.

Sunday, February 02 | The Browne Sisters featuring James Keigher

The LCCC’s 2019-20 Celtic Series drives on with the premiere performance by The Browne Sisters & George Cavanaugh. Their silvery harmonies, beautiful arrangements, and entertaining personalities have made them one of the most popular Celtic music groups performing today. Their sets always include several rousing numbers and a few traditional and not so traditional ballads, and always a Gaelic song or two.

They are known for making any song their own, while still keeping true to the original work. Sisters Diane, Pamela, and Laura bring powerful lead vocals and haunting harmonies to every song. They have been called “The folk group for people who thought they didn’t like folk music.” In Lincoln City, they’ll be joined by James Keigher, of the popular duo Men of Worth.

Saturday, March 07 | Seussical Jr.

We’re celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday and National Read Across America Day with a production of “Seussical Jr.” featuring the budding young actors of The Lincoln City Playhouse for Youth, a nonprofit community theatre company. Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in this fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

“Seussical Jr.” It will be performed twice, 2 pm and 7 pm on Saturday, March 7 at the LCCC. Tickets are $10 for adults (ages 18 and older), $5 youth (ages 6-17) and free for children (age 0-5). Sorry, LCCC Members Discount does not apply for this special presentation.

Friday, March 13 | Cause to Create: St. James Santiago School (Reception)

This year’s creative work by the kindergarten-8th-grade students of Lincoln City’s St. James Santiago School form this lively and eclectic show. Teachers at the non-profit elementary know the creative arts are fundamental to learning, so they integrate the visual, musical and dramatic arts across the school curriculum. Drawing from studies in science, literacy and the school’s current world study of Russia and Northern Europe, students produced individual and collaborative pieces in a wide range of media, including drawing, painting, mosaic, writing, scientific illustration, clay, and textiles.

One of Irish traditional music’s leading exponents, Téada is driven by a fascination for the timeless, expressive force of music inherited from previous generations of musicians. Irish Music Magazine describes the band as “at the cutting edge of the next generation of Irish musicians…with a fierce familiarity with the old ways.”
