Description: Join us for “The Sorcerer” written by Gilbert & Sullivan to be performed on March 4th at 7.30pm and March 5th at 2pm in Richardson Performing Arts Center on the Southwestern College campus. Reservations and questions can be directed to cms@sckans.edu or calling 620-229-6188. The Sorcerer debuted in 1877 and is a comic story following two lovers by the names of Alexis and Aline in their pursuit of unconditional love and adoration. To ensure that Aline truly reciprocates his feelings, Alexis hires a sorcerer to secretly distribute a love potion to the entire town of Ploverleigh. After a momentary slumber, the village awakens, resulting in utter chaos as each citizen instantly falls in love with the wrong person. The production will feature three professional opera singers in residence at Southwestern College. Our leading lady for the production, Alyssa Toepfer, has been deemed a soprano with "unbridled dexterity"(Kansas City Star) and "creamy warmth" (KC Independent). She has been seen professionally with Wichita Grand Opera, Lawrence Opera Theatre, Kansas City Civic Opera, and Sounds of South Dakota. Our title role will be sung by tenor, Kenneth Clymer, a graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and winner of the Dallas-Fort Worth Division NATS Competition. He has also been seen with Wichita Grand Opera, Fort Worth Opera, and the Bay Area Summer Opera Theatre Institute. Lastly, tenor Dylan Moore will perform the role of Alexis. Moore has been seen professionally with Wichita Grand Opera as a cover and chorus member, receiving his first role as Nepomuc in The Grand Duchess in October 2015. The production is directed by Southwestern College alumnus, Anna Rosell, who was an intern with Santa Fe Opera in Summer 2016. The performance will also feature seasoned local and regional singers in the principal roles. These include Charles McKinzie, Deanne Fort, Ben Rivers, Hannah Shelley, Jasmine Jackson, and Erin Buster. Stephen Gehly and William Wade will also join the cast as the Page and the God, Arhimanes. The Community Music School will also have a full chorus and orchestra to complete the operatic experience for any type of opera goer. Whether it is your first time or your thousandth time, The Sorcerer is certainly a must-see event of the season. For ticket reservations or questions regarding the production, contact Community Music School Director, Dylan Moore by emailing cms@sckans.edu or calling 620-229-6188. Tickets can also be reserved online at www.sckans.edu/TheSorcerer. Submitted by: Brandi Young The Community Music School

Description: Saturday March 4, 2017 at 8:00 PM Helzberg Hall | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts Forty years after recording “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” American legend and six-time GRAMMY Award-winner Art Garfunkel continues to thrill audiences with his stories, poetry, and signature vocals. Exploring folk, rock, and pop, Garfunkel’s music is melodically wistful and nostalgically soulful. Throughout his solo career and his time as part of the incomparable Simon & Garfunkel, Garfunkel’s works left an indelible impact on American music, including major popular hits such as “The Sound Of Silence,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “I Only Have Eyes For You,” and “All I Know.” Hailed by the New York Times as a “beautiful countertenor,” he is known for his vulnerable performances and his personal connection with audiences. Join us for an evening of lyrical melodies and poetic storytelling from this musical giant that will uplift and soothe your spirit.
