Student Life - posted on 8/14/2008
Lakeland College's Krueger Fine Arts Series has a little something for everyone this season.
There's an evening of classical music, legendary jazz and comedy that's sure to split the side of folks who have a special place in their heart for ice fishing and beer.
All four performances will be held at Lakeland's Bradley Fine Arts Building beginning at 7:30 p.m. Reserved seats for each event are $25 for adults and $15 for non-Lakeland students and can be purchased by contacting Deb Fale at (920) 565-1536.
Sept. 5 - Arthur and Friends
Arthur Johnson, a member of Lakeland's music faculty who heads the piano performance major, has gathered some of his friends for a night of solo piano and small ensemble works by some of classical music's biggest names.
Johnson will be joined by violinist Debbie Williamson, who is beginning her 28th season as the concertmaster of the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra, cellist Parry Karp, a member of the Pro Arte Quartet for the past 32 years, and flautist Amy Hartman, who teachers at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and at Lakeland.
Sept. 26 - Jabali Afrika
Jabali Afrika will bring an original sound from its own unique mixture and special fusion of African rhythms to the Bradley stage.
Originating from Kenya in east Africa, this is a truly multi-faceted band whose members are not only adept at composing songs, playing a variety of instruments, and blending their voices into a harmonious sound but are also talented dancers and choreographers.
The band has toured Europe and Japan extensively, played at several major U.S. festivals, including the HORDE festival in 1996, and appeared on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, Good Morning America, BET and MTV.
Jan. 23 - "Guys on Ice"
Originally produced during Wisconsin's Sesquicentennial by American Folklore Theatre and Milwaukee Repertory Theater, "Guys on Ice" explores the men behind the door of an ice shanty.
In northern Wisconsin, the land of frozen toes and wind-blown faces, Lloyd and Marvin brave the cold to find companionship and good fishing while enjoying the simple luxuries of a faithful fishing-pole, a warm snowmobile suit, and plenty of beer as they scramble to protect their "cold ones" from fellow angler Ernie the Moocher.
Don't miss your chance to catch the "big one" and have the chance to be the winner in Ernie the Moocher's Halftime Show by joining us for this wonderfully hilarious evening.
March 23 - Blue Note Records 70th Anniversary - On Tour
To mark the 70th anniversary of Blue Note Records, the premier label in jazz, an all-star band featuring some of the finest musicians today is traveling the world celebrating this rich catalog of music.
Led by Blue Note Records artist and pianist, Bill Charlap, the group will explore classic tunes by Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, and many others.
Joining Charlap in this talented ensemble will be Ravi Coltrane on tenor and soprano saxophone, Pat Martino on guitar, Lewis Nash on drums, Nicholas Payton on trumpet, Peter Washington on bass and Steve Wilson on alto saxophone. For jazz lovers, this is a can't-miss event.
