Description: Yoav Talmi, guest conductor Andrew Tyson, piano BORODIN Overture to Prince Igor CHOPIN Piano Concerto No. 2 TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique” Passion and drama reign supreme in this concert with three Romantic-era works. Tchaikovsky considered the “Pathétique” Symphony his very best, stating he “loved it as I have never loved any of my other musical offspring.” Emerging pianist Andrew Tyson stars in Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto, a marvelous display of poetry and fireworks. The second movement gushes with Chopin’s unrequited love for a beautiful soprano while the finale invokes a vibrant mazurka of his native Poland. The overture from Prince Igor launches a procession of regal brass fanfares and king-sized thrills. Tickets from $25. For more information or tickets, please visit or call (816) 471-0400.

Description: Unique Lawrence Annual Event Opens Holiday Season with “The Joys of Christmas” For two decades, the community of Lawrence has been treated to a concert unlike any other in the region. Concert organist Dr. Tandy Reussner pulls together a program that features the largest pipe organ in Kansas with other instruments and voices and then invites local musicians to participate in the crowd-favorite sounds of the season. This year’s featured musicians include a string quintet consisting of KU graduate students and community members, Paul Epp on trumpet, the Medical Men’s Choir, the Women’s Medical Professional choir, conductor Tracy Ressiguie, and vocalists Liesel and Hannah Reussner. Music will range from the classics, such as that of Rutter and Saint-Saens, to light-hearted fare by the Beach Boys and St. Florin’s Band, plus more. This 1 ½ hour family-friendly program is free, with donations accepted for local organizations that serve the Lawrence community. Each year, more than $3000 is raised through the generosity of the patrons. This year’s beneficiaries will be Family Promise of Douglas County (which houses and supports homeless families), and the Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center (serving Lawrence and the surrounding area). The local organization Fresh Start (which provides job training and skills for chronically underemployed women) will also have a booth of their homemade soaps and other products for purchase – items that make great Christmas gifts! For the kids, complimentary milk and cookies will be available at intermission. Doors open at 2:45 pm, and the house fills up quickly. Come early to get good parking and a good seat, and start your season off with joyful music. For more information about this delightful event, check out and on Facebook.

Description: Tickets for this event range from $39 to $79 plus applicable fees. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, September 15. Dubbed “the Jon Stewart of the Arab World,” Bassem Youssef was the creator and host of the wildly popular TV show Al-Bernameg – the first political satire show in the Middle East and the most watched program in the region from 2011 to 2014 with 30 million viewers every week. Throughout its three seasons Al-Bernameg remained controversial for its hilarious and bold criticism of the ruling powers in Egypt. Accused of insulting political leaders, Youssef was arrested and interrogated before being released on bail. During its final season, the show achieved unprecedented ratings before Youssef announced its termination due to overwhelming political pressures. In The Joke Is Mightier than the Sword, Youssef shares his personal story and his thoughts on the political climate that led to the Arab Spring, and its parallels to the current state of American politics.
