Sunday, October 20 | Harmonic Indie Folk: Kathryn Claire Trio

With her violin and voice at the center of her music, Kathryn Claire weaves together stories and melodies rooted in her classical and traditional musical background while infusing each song and composition with an energy and electricity that is palpable. Her musicality and joy on stage is infectious. Honest and poetic writing, crystalline vocals, impassioned violin compositions, and an ability to move seamlessly across genres, are the hallmark of Kathryn Claire’s original and diverse sound. Utilizing the immense talent of her trio featuring Allen Hunter on bass, and Sid Ditson on violin, Kathryn Claire delivers her own unique brand of harmonic indie-folk music.

Allen Hunter has been playing live and recording with Portland area songwriters and bands for the past 20 years and has been touring internationally for the past 10 years with LA-based band, Eels. He has also recorded with the Eels on Vagrant Records, Michael Dean Damron & Thee Loyal Bastards on Rosa Records, Black Angel, James Low, Alan Charing, The Vibrasonics, Jim Mesi to name a few.

Sid Ditson has been playing violin since childhood. Sid loves to explore the sometimes irreverent blend of fiddle and violin styles, and brings to the stage and studio a versatility with the instrument that is truly unique. Classical, indie, bluegrass, Celtic and improv are all a part of Sid’s pallet, along with an exquisite tone and depth of expression. Sid is often caught grinning while playing, finding it impossible to hide the immense joy that music brings.

Thursday, October 24 | “Deathtrap” by Ira Levin

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

Wednesday, October 30 | The Jacob Jolliff Band

The LCCC presents The Jacob Jolliff Band, the next generation of bluegrass supergroups, led by one of the country’s premier contemporary bluegrass mandolinists.

The band logged three records, hundreds of shows, and thousands of miles of worldwide touring. In 2012, Jolliff had the distinctive honor of being named the National Mandolin Championship winner.

A fixture of the national bluegrass community, he has collaborated and shared the stage with Darol Anger, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Chris Thile, and David Grisman to name a few.

Band, Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, The Deadly Gentlemen), Jeff Picker (Ricky Skaggs, Sarah Jarosz), Mike Barnett (Kentucky Thunder, Deadly Gentlemen), and others.

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

The LCCC is proud to present 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. This performance is for 11am and there is a 6pm performance as well.

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 will receive 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.

The Lincoln City performances will be introduced by a posting of the colors, and short introductory remarks by a local dignitary. Veterans receive complimentary tickets, and all those who attend will receive a red poppy pin.

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).

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