Description: The Aquila Theatre and American combat veterans/actors of the Warrior Chorus collaborate on a unique theatrical experience — "The Trojan War," where the classic myths of ancient Greece and Rome are set against the compelling narratives of modern war in a multimedia format that uses live action, film, bold projections, and thrilling music. "The Trojan War" uses epic moments from Homer's Iliad and scenes from other classical Greek drama and poetry to propel a thrilling chronicle of men and women at war. The clash of gods and heroes, the rage of Achilles, the suicide of Ajax, the fall of Troy and the rise of Rome are among the many stories of war and homecoming told by the Aquila Theatre alongside members of the Warrior Chorus. "The Trojan War" is Aquila's most ambitious production to date. The show will incorporate Aquila's distinctive theatrical style, combining superb acting with expert movement, original music, innovative design and groundbreaking direction. The Warrior Chorus is a national program that brings together men and women who served in the United States military and trains them to the highest level in the performing arts and humanities. The finest members of three Warrior Choruses (New York, California and Texas) will join Aquila's professional artists to tell these moving stories. http://www.k-state.edu/mccain/events/2016-2017/trojan-war.html The McCain box office is open weekdays 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 90 minutes before each performance. 785.532.6428 Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Performance Series

The Beach Boys

Get more info about this event »

Description: To be sure, this band has sold albums by the tens of millions and birthed a torrent of hit singles with Good Vibrations; Surfin’ U.S.A.; Little Deuce Coupe; Barbara Ann; Fun, Fun, Fun and I Get Around, to name a few. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt. Happily for us all, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut over 50 years ago. And in 2013, their Capitol Records releases of Sounds of Summer (RIAA certified triple platinum with over three million in sales and climbing) and its companion The Warmth of the Sun, marks a resurgence in Beach Boys interest that has again rocked the world.

Description: The life forms that have evolved the most rapidly have gone extinct. The universe has become a more stable and boring place. And investing in risky stocks is a losing proposition. Each of these phenomena have one thing in common: volatility. Over the long term, volatile entities — whether they are stocks, species, or stars — don’t survive. At our next Science on Tap, Professor Bruce S. Lieberman will talk about volatility and why it matters for our understanding of evolution and the universe, and maybe your investment portfolio, too.

Description: To some people, Bobby McFerrin will always be the guy who sang "Don't Worry Be Happy." But if that song is all you know about Bobby McFerrin, we suggest the following: Go to YouTube, type in Bobby's name, sit back and prepare for a serious boggling of the mind! You'll join the millions who have marveled at Bobby's stunning rendition of the Bach prelude "Ave Maria." You'll find Bobby's shockingly inventive appearance on the NBC music program "The Sing Off," his unparalleled interpretations of Beatles songs, his collaborations with everyone from cellist Yo-Yo Ma to pianist Chick Corea to comedian Robin Williams. You'll see him conducting the Vienna Philharmonic, consorting with the Muppets on "Sesame Street," and be awed by the way McFerrin brilliantly uses audience participation. Drawing on all genres, demonstrating matchless improvisational skills and an ability to create new vocabularies on the fly, he never fails to dazzle. Yet his music is always accessible and inviting. What is most telling about the journey through his YouTube entries are the comments from fans old and new. "Beautiful — there's no other word to describe this music," said one viewer. "He is the Johann Sebastian Bach and the Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart of today!" wrote yet another, impressed by Bobby’s endless creativity. Perhaps the statement that sums it up best is this one: "Bobby McFerrin makes me happy!" http://www.k-state.edu/mccain/events/2016-2017/bobby-mcferrin.html The McCain box office is open weekdays 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 90 minutes before each performance. 785.532.6428 Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Performance Series

Description: On April 28 and 29th we are presenting, ScandiNatives, Fiddle Music from the Metis and Nordic Traditions featuring Jamie Fox & Kristian Bugge (USA/Denmark). The event will include a Friday evening concert, a Scandinavian dance workshop on Saturday afternoon and an opportunity to practice the dances at a dance party that evening and to enjoy another grand Scandinavian social event. Dancing is not a requirement at the the evening dance party. The concert: Traditional dance tunes, whirling waltzes, happy polkas, groovy jigs, fiery reels and breathless hopsas plus the exotic Sønderhoning dance tunes from the Island of Fanø, Denmark are simply a brief glance into the complexities and multi-layered performances of the fiddling couple Jamie Fox and Kristian Bugge. To accompany the music they tell the stories of the traditions they both grew up in. Bugge (Denmark) is widely considered a master of traditional Danish music, and was awarded Folk Musician of the Year at the Danish Music Awards (Danish Grammy) 2016. Fox (Montana, USA) is one of the most well-known young players of Métis fiddle music which is a tradition crossing ties of Celtic, French and Native American music cultures. This contrast in approach and style helps to create a rich and complex sound. Together, Bugge and Fox perform groovy and warming sets that interchange between each performer’s strengths. This creates a versatile array of melodies that sends the listener’s ears to distant lands. More information about Kristian can be found here http://kristianbugge.com.
