A.C.T. Teen Conservatory’s Anything Goes
Jan 19 @ 8:00 pm
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinmail

The Academy of The Company Theatre (A.C.T.) Teen Conservatory presents Cole Porter’s musical theatre classic Anything Goes (Beaumont 1987 version) on January 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28 at The Company Theatre Center for the Arts, 30 Accord Park Drive, Norwell.  Matinee and evening performances are available. The production is directed by Jordie Saucerman with music direction by Melissa Carubia and choreography by Sally Forrest.

Music, dance, laughs, and the age-old tale of “boy meets girl” – Anything Goes is a hilarious shipboard romp, wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores. The S.S. American is sailing a comically colorful assemblage of passengers between New York and England.  Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist, and her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker have come aboard to attempt to win the favor of his beloved Hope Harcourt.  Unbeknownst to the daring duo, Harcourt is engaged to passenger, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, and second-rate conman Moonface Martin, known as Public Enemy 13. Song, dance, and farcical antics ensue as Reno and Moonface try to help Billy win the love of his life.  It’s Delightful, Delicious, and De-Lovely!

A.C.T. was founded in 1987 by Zoe Bradford, Michael Joseph and Jordie Saucerman, with a mission to discover the creative spirit in each child in an enjoyable and challenging atmosphere and to build self-confidence through the experience of the arts.

Tickets for Anything Goes are $18 for students, $20 for adults.  For a complete performance schedule, to order tickets, or for more information, call the box office at 781-871-2787, email boxoffice@companytheatre.com, or visit www.companytheatre.com.  The box office is open Monday to Friday from 11 am to 6 pm, and during all performances.

Draw the Circle Wide: Songs of Justice and Inclusion
Jan 20 @ 8:00 pm
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinmail

The Halalisa Singers presents Draw the Circle Wide:  Songs of Justice and Inclusion on Saturday, January 20, 8 pm at Follen Community Church, 755 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, and on Sunday, January 21, 3 pm, United Universalist Church of Reading, 239 Woburn Street, Reading.  The world music choral ensemble is led by Artistic Director Mary Cunningham, accompanied by Trevor Berens, piano and Bertram Lehmann, percussion.

In times like these, The Halalisa Singers aspire to nourish souls and inspire minds in song.  Draw the Circle Wide:  Songs of Justice and Inclusiondraws from all corners of the planet and through the myriad styles of human expression in music. With themes of inclusion and justice threaded throughout the repertoire, the audience will experience fun, hope and witness the joy of working and singing together.

Featured in the program are many contemporary choral arrangements, including the concert title piece “Draw the Circle Wide” by Mark Miller.  The new Gospel style piece “Take Down These Walls” is featured by Canadian composer Brian Tate, as well as “The Battle of Jericho” by Moses Hogan and a stirring arrangement of “People Get Ready” by Curtis Mayfield.  The haunting work “Spiritual” by Ysaye Barnwell leaves listeners mindful and refreshed.

The chorus shines the light on environmental stewardship with shape-note style “Emerald Stream” by Seth Houston featuring gorgeous soprano solos.  “Light of a Clear Blue Morning” written by Dolly Parton and arranged for choir by Craig Hella Johnson delivers a message of assurance and light.  The lovely arrangement of “By the Waters of Babylon” is by local New Hampshire musician Peter Amidon.

The concert takes a decidedly international departure in traditional Kenyan “Wana Baraka”and “Ukuthula” South African Prayer for peace; the “Song of Kabir” Text by Indian Poet Rabindranath Tagore and music by Elizabeth Alexander.  Written as a result of a mission trip, “Ukrainian Alleluia” is a contemporary prayer of hope and perseverance. Cuban author Silvio Rodríguez’ text is set to music by Beatriz Corona in “Entre El Espanto Y La Tenura (Between Terror and Tenderness)” and Neil Ginsburg’s beautiful arrangement for chorus and flute of the Hebrew fool song “Hine Ma Tov”.

The Halalisa Singers are dedicated to the performance of music across all cultures and nationalities. Halalisa is a Zulu word for “celebration,” and in that spirit, the Halalisa repertoire includes African, Latin, American Spiritual, Gospel, Jewish, Folk, and Jazz music. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Mary Cunningham, this Lexington-based group is now in its twenty-third year, offering performances throughout the Boston area. The group is inspired by the belief that music is a universal language with the power to uplift and unite all.

Artistic Director Mary Cunningham has led the Halalisa Singers since the fall of 2004, creating and directing 26 unique and vibrant world music-themed choral concerts to date. Following her vision to share their music across the Boston area, Halalisa reaches out to wider audiences, performing an ever-expanding repertoire. Cunningham is well known in the Boston area as an active choral conductor, vocalist, and flute soloist. She is the Music Director at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Reading, a member of the American Choral Directors Association and the UU Musicians Network. A frequent performer with the Christmas Revels, Mary is on the faculty of the Powers Music School in Belmont, and has a private teaching studio in her Lexington home.

SSC’s Chase Away the Winter Blues
Jan 27 @ 6:00 pm
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinmail

Benefiting SSC Community Partnerships,

Creative Arts Therapy program, tuition assistance

South Shore Conservatory (SSC) celebrates its 12thyear of Chase Away the Winter Blues gala on Saturday, January 27, from 6 pm to 12 midnight, at a new venue, the Boston Marriott Quincy, 1000 Marriot Drive in Quincy. The festive evening, an annual sell-out benefit, is filled with music, friendship and generosity and showcases SSC programs and faculty.

Over the last eleven years, the South Shore community has come together to support Chase Away the Winter Blues in the belief that arts education is truly transformative for all, and should be available to everyone. All proceeds benefit SSC’s Community Partnerships, including ImagineArts, SSC’s arts and literacy program in the Brockton public schools, Creative Arts Therapy programs, and the tuition assistance program. Remarkably, last year the event raised $150,000 for outreach, education, and tuition assistance programs, affording students the opportunity to receive a music education.  SSC believes that everyone, regardless of age, ability or circumstance, can benefit from the transformative nature of a music and arts education.  Programming continues to expand, reaching more communities, and people, for whom this opportunity would not be possible because of aid or access barriers.

Co-Chairs Linda Jones and Christine Puzo, along with a Bluescommittee comprised of SSC trustees, overseers, parents, friends and volunteers, are creating a fabulous evening featuring cocktails, a seated dinner, performance program and an exciting live auction with unique experiences, including a trip to South Africa, donated by Travel SommelierNew this year, an After Party begins at 9 pm, featuring music and dancing by East Coast Soul, Sugar Ray Norcia and Anthony Geraci Blues Duo, and SSC faculty members.

South Shore Conservatory thanks corporate sponsors Ameriprise and The Len Nolan Group, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Gagnon Tax, Massa Products Corporation, Quincy Mutual Group, Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation, Travel Sommelier, South Shore Bank and Whole Foods Market for their support of the Blues gala.

Chase Away the Winter Blues tables and tickets are now on sale, tables begin at $5,000 and individual tickets are $250. Tickets for the After Party only are $100 per person. For tickets and sponsorship information, visit www.sscmusic.org or contact Liz Graham, at l.graham@sscmusic.org or 781-749-7565 x14.
