Lac La Belle
an intriguing acoustic group that juxtaposes the early decades of recorded rural American music with decaying rustbelt aesthetic. A tradition is re-imagined- or maybe just resumed- in the ‘future- rustic’ swirl of accordion, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and resonator guitar. The instrumentation echos another era, but is employed for a music of now. Donations accepted. BYOB. You can go to laclabellemusic.com to find out more about the artists.

Two fine solo performers- Sarah Pedinotti from Railbird, and Matthew Carefully,

July 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17. Curtain at 8:00pm OPUS, a play by Michael HollingerScott Renderer directs a local cast including Chris Kowanko, Robert Andrews, John Spear, Stephen Longmire, and Andrea Hoffman.

After firing one of their founding members due to his erratic behavior, a world class string quartet takes a chance on a gifted but relatively inexperienced young woman. With only a few days to rehearse a grueling Beethoven masterpiece, the four struggle to prepare their highest- profile performance ever- a televised ceremony at the White House. The rehearsal room becomes a pressure- cooker as passions rise, personalities clash, and the players are forced to confront the ephemeral nature of their life’s work.
