The Calvary Masterworks Chorus invites you to enjoy an evening of classical music as they present Felix Mendelssohn's "Elijah." "Elijah" is an epic retelling of the Old Testament story of the prophet Elijah. Alongside Handel’s "Messiah," this piece is considered one of the greatest oratorios ever written with music that conveys sheer power and emotion. Mendelssohn was determined that the drama of the story should be of central importance, and dramatic it certainly is! A story of a curse that brings the scourge of drought, followed by despair, wickedness, cruelty, relief, tenderness, and mercy. The turmoil is finally resolved in an impassioned chorus of praise to the “Lord, our Creator.” Please join us on Friday, November 10, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. at Blue River Bible Church, 15608 Fairchild Dr., Kansas City, MO 64147 to hear this wonderful Masterwork.

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 www.tandyreussner.com and on Facebook.

Bassem Youssef: The Joke Is Mightier Than The Sword

Get more info about this event »

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.
