Camelot Theater: Spotlight On: The USO 1/12 thru 1/22/12

Posted by:Ellen | Posted on: January 10th, 2012 | 0 Comments

Spotlight on: The USO January 12 - 22, 2012 From its establishment during the big band era in the early 40‘s, through the years of change in the 60‘s and up until the present, the USO (United Service Organizations) brought America and the boys (and girls) overseas entertainment, hope and a “home away from home” during the most challenging of times. Celebrities offered their services often at great risk to themselves. Live performances, known as Camp Shows, attracted movie stars, comedians, musicians, singers and dancers, including Bob Hope, Danny Kaye, The Andrew Sisters, Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Robin Williams and Willie Nelson.

Darol and Mike have created their own way of speaking – through their instruments. A connection and a shared repertoire that goes very deep; developed over 35 years of music-making in a wide variety of music styles. It is very rare what these two have the ability to do in concert. A way of communicating through their instruments that is nothing short of breathtaking.

Eric Tingstad, a classical guitarist, and Nancy Rumbel, who plays oboe, English horn, and ocarina, began their association after meeting at a music festival in the Pacific Northwest in 1985. They were drawn together by a shared interest in applying their instruments outside their traditional settings, integrating ethnic, jazz, rock, and other contemporary influences into their classical backgrounds. Their neo-classical instrumentals mixed with a warm folk treatment has been called "Northwestern Impressionism."

David Jacobs-Strain and Ben Rice, Acoustic Blues — 11/19

Posted by:Ellen | Posted on: October 19th, 2011 | 0 Comments


David Jacobs-Strain and Ben Rice, Double Bill of Acoustic Blues
Saturday, November 19, 2011 • 8pm
Tickets: $18/advance, $20/door, $10/teens 12-17,
children under 12 are free with paying adult.
Unitarian Fellowship, 4th and C Streets, Ashland
David Jacobs-Strain outrageous guitar work jumps from wild fingerstyle to slide and percussive drive produce enough tone to rival an electric jam band. And his voice carries an emotional intensity that his songs demand. David's newest record Live from the Left Coast is built on the raw energy and stripped down vibe that fans have been asking for: David on guitar, vocals, Bob Beach on harmonica are all it takes to bring this set of mostly originals to life.
Ben Rice says the biggest influences of his music are artists like Carlos Santana and B.B. King. However, he is inspired by music from a large range of varying genres – everything from blues to rock, soul, and even eastern African music. In addition to having the voice of a Southern black blues singer, Rice is an amazing guitarist. He picked up his first guitar, a 1981 Washburn A10, when he was only five years old. At the age of seven, he began taking lessons, and now, at the prime age of 22, Rice says that he can "convincingly play four instruments" – the guitar, bass, trombone, and drums.

So. Oregon Repertory Singers “Charms & Delights”, 10/30/11

Posted by:Ellen | Posted on: October 13th, 2011 | 0 Comments

"Charms and Delights" Sunday, October 30, 2011 - 3:00pm
SOU Music Recital Hall, S. Mountain Ave., Ashland
Free pre-concert lecture one hour prior to each performance.
Tickets: $20, $5 students with ID

The Southern Oregon Repertory Singers begin their 26th year with a concert dedicated to early music: small concerted works by Baroque and Renaissance masters. Featured will be pieces by Monteverdi and Johann Sebastian Bach as well as the Mass for Four Voices of William Byrd. Joining the choir will be an intimate Baroque ensemble including Joanna Blendulf, cellist, and traverso player Sherril Kannasto Wood.

We will hear excerpts from Monteverdi’s opera L’Orfeo, also from his Vespers, one of the most important sacred compositions of the Baroque and from his Madrigals – Book VIII. Johann Sebastian Bach’s Aus der tiefe is a beautiful piece - a particular favorite of SORS conductor, Dr. Paul French.
William Byrd’s Mass for Four Voices is considered one of the crowning achievements of the entire Renaissance. The dona nobis, in which Byrd (a practicing Catholic in a Protestant era) pours forth a heart-rending cry for peace, is especially moving.

Join us in celebrating the beginning of our second quarter century of vibrant, life-giving, artistic choral music.
