DNR: A World Premiere Play

Get more info about this event »

Description: DNR by Victor Wishna / directed by Rusty Sneary September, 2019 Amanda, a hospital volunteer with a guardian-angel complex, meets her newest assignment, Bud, a terminally ill patient with very little patience. She’s a single mom with a benevolent soul; he’s a bitter Navy vet with one last mission to complete—and he insists it’s a solo. With warmth, wit, and bite, DNR explores the complexities of human connection and asks, what does it mean to be alone? What does it mean to be alive? A world premiere production Starring Gary Neal Johnson, Jen Mays, and Shawna Peña-Downing September 4 - 22, 2019 Ticket and more information: thelivingroomkc.com Submitted by: Ben Auxier The Living Room Theatre

Cerbera Gallery presents: "Animals" by Joseph Broghammer
Cerbera Gallery presents: "Animals" by Joseph Broghammer

Get more info about this event »

Description: To Whom It May Concern at KPR, Below, please find our latest press release. Please call or e-mail us with questions or comments. -------------------------------------- Cerbera Gallery Presents: “Animals," a Solo Exhibition by Joseph Broghammer Omaha based artist Joseph Broghammer is as much of a storyteller as he is an artist. His one-of-a-kind oil pastel drawings in “Animals” are chronicles of his life. The creatures Broghammer creates are vehicles to uncover the varying characteristics of the artist’s personal identity. Surrounding Broghammer's animals are different icons, streams of consciousness, or keys to understanding the stories Broghammer shares. Broghammer received his B.F.A. in Visual Art at the University of South Dakota. He graduated in 1986 and a year later went on to study his M.F.A. at the University of Wisconsin. In 2009, he studied at Creative Capital in Omaha, Nebraska. As storytellers often do, Broghammer later went on to become an educator himself, teaching at WhyArts? and becoming an Artist Assistant at Vera Mercer in Omaha – both of which he still practices at today. He has exhibited work through a vast number of solo and group shows internationally in Italy, Germany, Holland, Mexico, and even Kansas City. In 2018, Broghammer became a published illustrator in the successful children's book, "Chica," written by Karen Duncan. Although Broghammer’s portraits depict downy creatures, his work is very much about the human experience. They are honest and full of life, evoking a sincere exchange between artist and viewer. “Animals” is for the animal lovers, students, teachers, collectors, writers, the young or old, and art historians alike. -------------------------------------- Collectors Reception: Friday, September 6, 5-7pm R.S.V.P. Opening Reception: Friday, September 6, 7-9pm Exhibition Date: September 6 - October 25, 2019 Location: Cerbera Gallery 2011 Baltimore Ave, Kansas City, MO 64108 Phone: +1-844-202-9303 E-Mail: info@cerberagallery.com Event URL: https://cerberagallery.com/cerbera-gallery-presents-animals-by-joseph-br...

Her previous books have been critical studies of the novelist Charles Dickens and poets John Milton, Dante, Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Blake, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, among others.

The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra Tribute to Frank Sinatra
The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra Tribute to Frank Sinatra

Get more info about this event »

Description: In the history of the Big Bands, The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra is recognized as one of the all-time best swing orchestras in the world. With the collaboration of Paul Weston, Axel Stordahl and Sy Oliver, Tommy Dorsey created superb arrangements for his feverish dance tunes or romantic ballads that remain immortal today. Over the years The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra musicians have been the masters of creating ‘mood’ with their sentimental favorites or the upbeat tempos that got the world dancing. Frank Sinatra’s career literally exploded with the help of Dorsey and in turn, it was Sinatra’s smooth vocals that propelled The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra to a new level of popularity! Frank often admitted that it was Tommy’s music that helped create his famous phrasing and breathing techniques and ultimately influenced his overall musical tastes and knowledge. "Stardust," "Night and Day," "Oh! Look at me Now," and "I’ll Never Smile Again" are only a few of the songs immortalized by the brilliant combination of The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and the iconic Frank Sinatra… And now, this legendary Big Band, led by the superb Terry Myers, will tour the world to honor the magic of this incomparable team. With twenty of the finest musicians and singers ever assembled, this magnificent tribute to Frank Sinatra is a step back in time. Tickets for the event range from $47 to $67.

Description: Bearing witness to small details and fleeting moments is what dignifies our everyday stories, rendering the mundane profound. This principle has governed Erelli’s approach to his two-decade career, including 11 solo albums, stints accompanying Josh Ritter, Paula Cole and Anais Mitchell, and a pair of records he produced for GRAMMY-winning songwriter Lori McKenna. Ever since Billboard magazine heralded the “simple, atmospheric grace” of his Signature Sounds debut, Erelli’s belief in the sacredness of an examined life has driven him between the ostensible extremes of lullabies and murder ballads, western swing and protest anthems. Whether he’s holding a pen or a Telecaster, Erelli’s music welcomes even the casual listener, but those who choose to dig more deeply are richly rewarded. Perhaps that is what Folk Alley hears in Erelli’s songs when it encourages people to “listen close; there’s sure to be something in there to break your heart a split second before it leads you straight to grace.” Submitted by: Brad Guhr Dyck Arboretum of the Plains
