The Hattie Larlham Creative Arts Program gives profoundly disabled artists a hand and a voice, letting them create art without the focus of their limitations. These are artists who refuse to be defined by their disabilities, but rather by what they can achieve.
The Blue Water Chamber orchestra continues its season with guest conductor Raphael Jimenez. The program includes Brahms' "Serenade No. 1 in D major" and Gabriel Faure's "Pavane in F# minor." In six movements the "Serenade" covers a wealth of musical emotions and features beautiful melodies, unusual humor and exciting orchestral interchanges between the instrument families. Blue Water Chamber Orchestra is an artist in-residence at Saint Ignatius High School. This family friendly concert is 75 minutes long and performed without an intermission.
Following the record-setting success of The Producers, Mel Brooks has once again channeled his madcap comedy with his musical adaptation of Young Frankenstein. A parody of horror films, the musical follows the frantic exploits of the original mad scientist's grandson, Frederick Frankenstein, as he transforms from a respected college professor to a creature-creating insane genius--singing and dancing along the way!
