Cascadia Concert Opera (CCO) presents this engaging operetta by Gian Carlo Menotti. The CCO is a non-profit arts organization that engages communities through the vibrant musical storytelling of opera. Last year, the CCO came to Lincoln City with their amusing production of “Die Fledermaus.”
Sheng Dong, or as it translates in English, A Moving Sound, is a performance company based in Taipei, Taiwan. A Moving Sound has created a new musical expression that fuses Taiwanese, Chinese and neighboring Asian musical ideas in inspired and engaging modern song compositions. Songs are performed on Chinese instruments such as the vertically held and bowed erhu and the Chinese guitar known as zhong ruan, as well as Western instruments. Transcendent vocals and dance by lead singer Mia Hsieh, transport listeners to and beyond the Far East to where only the highest art can take us.
The modern world has turned its’ eyes towards the Far East with China exploding rapidly in its’ economy and culture. Musically however, the world knows this region for either traditional music or music that, for the most part, copies western ideas. A Moving Sound has attracted international attention for opening a door to this unexplored territory with a music that is both ethnic and intensely passionate and creative. Audiences and critics are thrilled to see this new musical art based on melodies and instruments from the Far East.
Canada's most energetic and endearing folk trio. Masterful story telling. Haunting three part harmonies. Mandolin, Banjo, Guitar, Delay pedals and a beat up bass drum. A lush and lively take on modern roots.
Born in a storm on a wild Canadian lake, Red Moon Road came into its own on the trails between coast and coast. All credit goes to the chemistry, and to the magic that happens when the Winnipeg band's two Daniels - jazz-trained Daniel Jordan and bilingual prog-rock vet Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner - strum up the strings to support twilight-voiced singer Sheena Rattai. From living rooms to folk fest stages, the three have charmed fans from coast to coast with their lush and lively take on modern roots, peppered always by bright stage banter, exquisite harmonies and masterfully told stories. As you can hear on their brand-new EP "Tales from the Whiteshell" or their acclaimed eponymous debut album, it's all sort of rich and warm and deeply familiar, like a campfire crackling wherever the microphones stand: even if it's your first time in the audience, you come as a friend of this band.
