Description:

Based on Roundabout Theatre Company's Tony Award®-winning production, SAM MENDES (Skyfall, American Beauty) and ROB MARSHALL'S (Into the Woods and Chicago, the films) CABARET comes to McCain Auditorium on Jan. 16, 2018.

Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles, and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd — and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times?

Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including "Cabaret," "Willkommen" and "Maybe This Time." Leave your troubles outside — life is beautiful at CABARET — JOHN KANDER, FRED EBB and JOE MASTEROFF's Tony-winning musical about following your heart while the world loses its way.

Description: m-pact returns to Lawrence for a special collaborative concert with the LHS and FSHS choral departments. There will be performances by ensembles from Kansas City Kansas Community College, Lawrence High School, and other possible guest appearances TBA. $10 advance tix / $12 at the door. A portion of proceeds will go to benefit LHS / FSHS choral programs. Tickets available at https://m-pact20180116.eventbrite.com =============================== Hailed "one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world" by the San Francisco Chronicle, m-pact is respected worldwide as a cutting edge trailblazer in the realm of vocal music. Emerging from an age of auto-tune and overproduction, this Los Angeles-based ensemble has cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for the fresh, raw power of nature's "first instrument" - the human voice. Touring renowned fine arts halls and jazz festivals across four continents, m-pact has performed with pop superstars Sheryl Crow, Boyz II Men, Natasha Bedingfield, and Ray Charles to name a few; as well as with jazz legends Natalie Cole, Bobby McFerrin, the Woody Herman Orchestra, the Maynard Ferguson Big Band, and many others. Their signature sound has been used in both TV themes and animated Disney feature films, and is enjoyed on jazz and pop radio worldwide. In the summer of 2016, m-pact announced the retirement of the band's two founding members, Marco Cassone and Trist Curless, prompting a significant "re-boot" and revamping of the ensemble's lineup. The result of the ensuing nationwide talent search is a jaw-dropping collection of America's most exciting vocal talent. Led by singer, beatboxer, and artistic director Jeff Smith (LHS & KU alum), these young pro's are not only tremendously gifted, but are deeply committed to continuing the traditions of innovation and excellence which have made m-pact an international sensation for more than 20 years. As m-pact enters their third decade, they continue to break new ground with innovative new recording projects, music videos, and awe-inspiring live performances. The group's multiple fine arts showcases have resulted in their being one of the most-requested acts of the year, and have left no doubt that m-pact's music will continue to reach music lovers around the world for many years to come.

Description:

A standard-bearer of innovation and artistic excellence, Orpheus
Chamber Orchestra is one of the world’s foremost chamber
orchestras. Orpheus was founded in 1972 by Julian Fifer and a group of like-minded young musicians determined to combine the intimacy and warmth of a chamber ensemble to the richness of an orchestra.

With 71 albums, including the Grammy Award-winning “Shadow
Dances: Stravinsky Miniatures,” and 42 commissioned and premiered original works, Orpheus rotates musical leadership roles for each work and strives to perform diverse repertoire through collaboration and open dialogue.

Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth has rapidly established
herself as one of the foremost trumpet soloists of our time, garnering critical acclaim for her soulful, lyrical sound and collaborative approach to music-making.
