Diavolo
Dates:Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Title:Diavolo
Description:Diavolo Architecture in Motion 7:30 pm Tuesday, January 27, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium Diavolo reinvents dance, reimagines theatre, and redefines thrills. Diavolo uses abstract and recognizable structures as focal points in which performers come together to confront, challenge, and manipulate their environments. The Los Angeles company combines everyday movements, ballet, contemporary dance, acrobatics, gymnastics, martial arts, and hip-hop to illuminate fear, danger, survival, chaos, order, deconstruction, reconstruction, destiny, faith, and love. Jacques Heim, the Paris-born artistic director who created the troupe in 1992, describes the company’s achievements as “Architecture in Motion.” In 2012, Diavolo performed the world premiere of Transit Space, a work inspired by skateboard culture, at Eisenhower Auditorium. The company returns to perform an evolved version of Transit Space, which was co-commissioned by the Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State. “Transit Space has an infectious rock soundtrack … and a hip, contemporary vibe, thanks to its street-clothes costumes and the loose way the dancers hang about the stage,” writes a Los Angeles Times critic. The program also features Fluid Infinities, a 2013 production set on an abstract dome structure and accompanied by Philip Glass’ Symphony No. 3. The dome’s organic patterns evoke the craters of the moon, a honeycomb of bees, a shifting brain, and an undiscovered starship. The performers explore metaphors of infinite space, continuous movement, and humanity’s voyage into an unknown future. http://cpa.psu.edu | 800-ARTS-TIX

Zap Mama and Antibalas
Dates:Tuesday, February 03, 2015
Title:Zap Mama and Antibalas
Description:Zap Mama and Antibalas 7:30 pm Tuesday, February 3, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium The powerhouse musicians of Zap Mama and Antibalas come together for a world music celebration. Congo-born, Belgium-raised Marie Daulne, known to her fans as Zap Mama, redefines the word “vocalist.” Creatively expressing sound and storytelling with tone and pure voice, Zap Mama’s style nurtures a new generation of singers and beat-boxers. From Afrobeat to Afro-Pop, Zap Mama mixes African vocal technique with European polyphony and American sounds in a world-music revue that transports listeners. “For Zap Mama, the African diaspora offers limitless connections,” writes a New York Times reviewer, “and the group can crisscross the Atlantic in the course of a song.” Brooklyn’s Antibalas, modeled on Fela Kuti’s Africa 70 band and Eddie Palmieri’s Harlem River Drive Orchestra, melds Afrobeat with New York City Latin funk and traditional drumming of Cuba and West Africa. Through its concerts, tours, and recordings, Antibalas has helped to re-popularize the classic Afrobeat sound. Antibalas members Aaron Johnson and Jordan McLean served as musical director and assistant musical director, respectively, of Bill T. Jones’ Tony Award-winning Broadway show Fela! about the life of Kuti. “Antibalas’ music embodies the principles of grassroots revolutionary movements … as the disparate voices of guitars, brass, and organ all move in one unified direction,” asserts a BBC critic. “… Antibalas is musical democracy in action, and an inspiring example of a band practicing what they preach.”

Frogz
Dates:Friday, February 06, 2015
Title:Frogz
Description:Frogz Imago Theatre 7:30 pm Friday, February 6, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium Frogz treats family audiences to human-sized silent sloths, escaped penguins, finicky frogs, red-eyed reptiles, personable paper bags, devilish strings, and other fanciful things. Five agile performers—aided by a menagerie of ingenious masks, outrageous costumes, and original music by Mark De Gli Antoni—conjure a carnival of the absurd. A production of Portland, Oregon’s Imago Theatre, Frogz unfolds in a series of hopping, jiggling, undulating, waddling, and slithering vignettes. Imago, which started in 1979 as a mask troupe touring to small communities in the Pacific Northwest, has performed Frogz in two runs on Broadway, at venues around the world, and on national television. “With just enough variety, an occasional good-natured excursion into the audience, and the kind of occasional menace that not even children take seriously, Frogz knows how to entertain,” writes a critic for The New York Times. “… Theater like this opens the eyes to the possibilities of exploration in the vast realm of imagination.” Frogz is the brainchild of Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad, Imago’s founders who trained in the mixture of theatre, movement, and visual arts pioneered by Jacques Lecoq in Paris.

Cyrille Aimée
Dates:Thursday, February 12, 2015
Title:Cyrille Aimée
Description:Cyrille Aimée 7:30 pm Thursday, February 12, 2015 Schwab Auditorium Serendipity shined on the joyful French-born jazz singer Cyrille Aimée (Suh-real Ah-may), winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival’s Vocal Competition and the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition. The daughter of a French father and a Dominican mother, Aimée was raised in Samois-sur-Seine, the village where renowned gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt once lived. For decades, Romani from across Europe have set up encampments near the village each June for the annual Reinhardt festival. As a child, Aimée would climb out of her bedroom window at night and explore the camps, where she fell in love with the visitors’ music and culture. “I was hypnotized by this music, which made me want to tap my feet,” she recalls. “Swinging music makes me so happy.” Aimée, who has also lived in Paris, Cameroon, Singapore, and the Dominican Republic, later became fascinated by Brazilian guitar. Her sublime singing reveals a thorough understanding of bossa nova and samba. Now living in Brooklyn, and singing mostly in English, Aimée has added an ever-expanding understanding of American jazz to her novel blend of multicultural influences. A Washington Post writer describes her voice as being “like fine whiskey—oaky and smooth, with a hint of smokiness.” It’s a Good Day, her major-label album debut scheduled for release in August 2014, features a mix of originals and standards, such as “Where or When,” “Caravan,” and the title track made famous by Peggy Lee. In her first concert at Penn State, Aimée performs with her band of two guitarists, a bassist, and a drummer.

Title:The King`s Singers Great American Songbook
Description:The King’s Singers Great American Songbook 7:30 pm Tuesday, February 17, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium The King’s Singers, one of the world’s most celebrated vocal ensembles, is instantly recognizable for its spot-on intonation, impeccable vocal blend, flawless articulation, and incisive timing. The six vocalists are also consummate entertainers—a class act with a delightfully British wit. Around the time the vocal group was getting its start, one of the most productive periods of songwriting in history was coming to a close in America. In their Eisenhower Auditorium concert, the singers pay homage to the incredible intersection of popular, jazz, and Broadway music that dominated the airwaves from the 1920s to the 1960s. Based on the ensemble’s album Great American Songbook, which includes seventeen of the most-loved tunes of that era arranged by British jazz composer Alexander L’Estrange, the concert highlights a cappella settings of timeless music by artists such as Cy Coleman (“The Best is Yet to Come”), Richard Rodgers (“Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered” and “My Funny Valentine”), Cole Porter (“Night and Day,” “Begin the Beguine,” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”), Harold Arlen (“I’ve Got the World on a String”), Irving Berlin (“Cheek to Cheek”), and Jerome Kern (“I Won’t Dance”).

Description:Listening for Grace February 21, 2015 7:00 pm Stahl Mennonite Church 1201 Soap Hollow Rd. Johnstown, PA Admission is FREE. --- In Listening for Grace, Ted Swartz uses his distinctive humor to give voice to our fears and hopes when a faith community engages in questions around sexuality and same-sex relationships. It’s about a father’s journey, a church’s struggle and a search for commonality. Listening for Grace follows the story of a widowed father whose son has just come out as gay. Through his relationships with his son, an estranged cousin, people in his church and a pastor who deals with issues of sexuality in the Bible, the main character is challenged by many different viewpoints and experiences. It’s a piece about church. It’s a piece about fatherhood. It’s a piece about community. It’s a piece about our sexuality. And it’s an entertaining and enlightening piece about openness and love.

Title:Time for Three
Description:Time for Three Zach De Pue and Nick Kendall, violinists Ranaan Meyer, double bassist 7:30 pm Thursday, February 26, 2015 Schwab Auditorium Time for Three calls itself the world’s first classically trained garage band. Performing music from Bach to its own arrangements of songs by the Beatles, Mumford & Sons, Katy Perry, and Kanye West, the trio defies classification. The ensemble has performed more than 1,000 concerts at venues as diverse as Carnegie Hall, jazz clubs, European festivals, NFL games, and the Indianapolis 500. Violinists Zach De Pue and Nick Kendall and double bassist Ranaan Meyer played together for fun when they were students at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music. De Pue and Kendall had a mutual affection for country and bluegrass fiddling. Meyer, who also composes works for the trio, introduced the violinists to his roots in jazz and improvisation. After much experimentation, the musicians officially formed Time for Three. The band, which has evolved into a charismatic ensemble with a reputation for enthusiasm and a no-limits repertoire, has performed with The Philadelphia Orchestra, the National and Indianapolis symphonies, and other classical orchestras. The trio’s first commercial album, Three Fervent Travelers, remained in the top ten on the Billboard crossover chart for almost a year. “Stronger,” the band’s hit YouTube anti-bullying video, has inspired countless students. The trio’s concert selections, to be announced from the stage, will include works such as Jay Ungar’s “Ashokan Farewell,” Bach’s “Chaconne in Winter,” John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s “Norwegian Wood,” Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” Bill Monroe’s “Jerusalem’s Ridge,” the traditional ballads “Danny Boy” and “Shenandoah,” Coldplay’s “UFO,” and U2’s “With or Without You.”

They’ve done that with style.” Paddy Moloney, the uillean pipes player who started the Dublin band in 1962 and serves as its music director, embodies The Chieftains’ inclusive creative spirit. Kevin Conneff (bodhrán, vocals) and Matt Molloy (flute) complete the band. The Chieftains’ newest album, Voice of Ages, presents collaborations with a new generation of kindred spirits.

BJO`s Finest and Graphicology
Dates:Thursday, March 19, 2015
Title:BJO`s Finest and Graphicology
Description:Brussels Jazz Orchestra BJO’s Finest and Graphicology 7:30 pm Thursday, March 19, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium Brussels Jazz Orchestra performs with a dynamic orchestral sound rooted in jazz tradition. Belgium’s lone professional jazz big band, guided by Artistic Director Frank Vaganée, has earned a reputation stretching from Singapore to New York. The orchestra, known for its crossover projects with other genres, performs on stages throughout the world. The orchestra co-performed the music for the Oscar-winning best picture, The Artist. The band has released almost twenty albums, including 2013’s Wild Beauty with saxophonist Joe Lovano, which garnered two Grammy Award nominations. Also in 2013, the orchestra celebrated its twentieth anniversary with the release of BJO’s Finest–Live, a CD of songs composed and arranged by members of the ensemble. The first set of the orchestra’s Penn State debut concert offers music inspired by that anniversary recording. After intermission, the orchestra performs Graphicology, its 2012 collaboration with Belgian graphic novelist Philip Paquet. The novelist selected existing stories and created two new ones for the project. Six composers penned an accompanying soundtrack. The stories were edited into original videos that are projected on a large screen while the orchestra performs the soundtrack. “Nowadays you often hear of projects with music where an artist draws live on stage. That is not what Graphicology is about,” Vaganée says. “Philip’s stories have a beginning, a middle, and an end. There is a plot, and the music we have written fits to the second with the images. What you see happening on screen, you hear in the music, and vice versa."

eighth blackbird
Dates:Thursday, April 02, 2015
Title:eighth blackbird
Description:eighth blackbird 7:30 pm Thursday, April 2, 2015 Schwab Auditorium eighth blackbird, “the altogether brilliant and fearless young sextet that champions both modern music and dramatic experimentation” (Chicago-Sun Times), combines the finesse of a string quartet, the energy of a rock band, and the audacity of a storefront theatre company. The Chicago ensemble, winner of three Grammy Awards, promises—and delivers—provocative and mind-changing performances to its burgeoning audiences. Combining virtuosity with a sense of irreverence, eighth blackbird debunks the myth that contemporary music is only for a cerebral few. “Stage animals as well as outstanding chamber players, eighth blackbird performs with a freedom unheard of in their technically demanding repertoire,” writes a critic for London’s Sunday Telegraph. The sextet—clarinetist Michael Maccaferri, flutist Tim Munro, violinist and violist Yvonne Lam, percussionist Matthew Duvall, pianist Lisa Kaplan, and cellist Nicholas Photinos—makes its Penn State premiere with a performance of Pieces of Winter Sky, an Aaron Jay Kernis composition co-commissioned by the Center for the Performing Arts through its membership in the national classical music-commissioning consortium Music Accord. The program is also scheduled to include works by Tom Johnson, Richard Reed Parry, Gabriella Smith, Sean Griffin, and Bryce Dessner.

Rosanne Cash
Dates:Thursday, April 09, 2015
Title:Rosanne Cash
Description:Rosanne Cash The River & The Thread 7:30 pm Thursday, April 9, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium Beloved singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash makes her Center for the Performing Arts premiere with her band in a concert featuring music from her acclaimed 2014 album The River & The Thread. The recording includes eleven original songs written by Cash and her longtime collaborator—and husband—John Leventhal, who also served as producer, arranger, and guitarist. The River & The Thread evokes the American South’s rich landscape—physical, musical, and emotional—and examines the indelible impressions it’s made on our collective culture and on Cash, who was born in Memphis, Tennessee. The songs portray a multigenerational cast of characters—from a Civil War soldier off to fight in Virginia, to a New Deal-era farmer in Arkansas, to a present-day couple in Alabama. While Cash and Leventhal were inspired by the many musical styles associated with the South—Delta blues, gospel, Appalachian folk, country, rock, and others—the resulting collection of songs is contemporary. Cash’s crystalline voice and Leventhal’s compelling guitar are the heart of the project, but they weave in additional instrumentation to suit the tone of each song. During the concert, beautifully poetic, topical, and interpretive photographs project above the performers and invite a timeless sense of connection to the songs and their extended stories. The Grammy-winning Cash, who has recorded fifteen albums, has charted twenty-one top forty country singles, eleven of which reached number one. A Chicago Tribune reviewer describes Composed, her 2010 memoir, as “one of the best accounts of an American life you will likely ever read.”

Brooklyn Rider

Title:Brooklyn Rider
Description:The Lightning Thief Theatreworks USA 2:00 pm Sunday, April 12, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium New York City’s Theatreworks USA returns to Eisenhower Auditorium in The Lightning Thief, a musical adaptation of the first book in Rick Riordan’s popular Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of school—again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. Worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’ master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus’ stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, he’ll have to do more than catch the true thief. He must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves. Theatreworks USA creates, produces, and provides access to professional theatre for children and families nationwide. Since its creation in 1961, the company has performed for more than ninety million people in productions that have toured to forty-nine states and Canada.

Brooklyn Rider
Dates:Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Title:Brooklyn Rider
Description:Brooklyn Rider 7:30 pm Tuesday, April 14, 2015 Schwab Auditorium “I’ve seen the future of chamber music,” writes a reviewer for Strings magazine, “and it is Brooklyn Rider.” The quartet, which calls Brooklyn home, offers an eclectic repertoire in performances that attract legions of fans and rave reviews from critics. “They are four classical musicians performing with the energy of young rock stars jamming on their guitars,” insists a Pittsburgh-Post Gazette critic, “a Beethoven-goes-indie foray into making classical music accessible but also celebrating why it was good in the first place.” NPR lauds violinists Johnny Gandelsman and Colin Jacobsen, violist Nicholas Cords, and cellist Eric Jacobsen for “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative twenty-first-century ensemble.” Brooklyn Rider has performed in an array of venues such as Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, the San Francisco Jazz Festival, Japan’s Todai-ji, Lincoln Center, the Library of Congress, and Austin, Texas’ South by Southwest. The foursome has also collaborated on projects with artists as diverse as banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck and opera soprano Dawn Upshaw. The quartet members are longstanding participants in Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, with which they have performed throughout the world and recorded three CDs. Brooklyn Rider has been featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts, On Point, All Songs Considered, Deceptive Cadence, and All Things Considered. The quartet’s recordings are played across North America on stations ranging in focus from classical to world, jazz, pop, and new music. Brooklyn Rider’s name was inspired, in part, by the cross-disciplinary vision of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), a pre-World War I artist collective in Munich. The quartet’s Schwab Auditorium program will be announced at a later date.

Home Nursing Agency Open House
Dates:Thursday, May 21, 2015
Title:Home Nursing Agency Open House
Description:Do you know someone facing a life-limiting illness? Do you know a child who is struggling with grief after a loved one passed away? Have you ever wondered how you could help them? Home Nursing Agency invites you to learn more about the services for those in our community who are nearing the end of life or grieving the loss of a loved one. The community is invited to an Open House at the Healing Patch, 5416 Sixth Ave., Altoona, on Thurs., May 21 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Attendees can learn about hospice care and the Healing Patch program to refer others who may need services, and they can also learn about opportunities to get involved as volunteers with the role that best fits their skills, schedule and comfort level. Hospice provides care for people with life-limiting illnesses and supports caregivers even after their loved one has passed away. Volunteers assist in many ways by visiting patients to offer companionship for patients, providing relief and support for family members, assisting with clerical duties in the office or reaching out to grieving family members through phone calls or notes from the comfort of their own homes. The Healing Patch: A Program for Loss and Hope for Grieving Children and Their Families is a free peer support program that brings hope and healing back into the lives of grieving families. "Having experienced loss at a young age, I can personally recognize the need for the Healing Patch,” explains Healing Patch volunteer Tim Knob. “Devoting time as a volunteer has given me the opportunity to facilitate discussions among children who have experienced the loss of a loved one to death. Once these children are given the opportunity to openly discuss their loss in a safe environment, they quickly recognize the similarities they have with the other children in the room and develop instant connections. After witnessing that there are other children their age who share their anger, sadness, fear and worries, they realize they are not alone…and the healing process truly begins." Healing Patch volunteers serve in various roles, such as facilitating groups, planning activities for children to share with one another, greeting family members as they arrive, serving food for families to enjoy, completing sewing projects for children to remember their loved ones and assisting with special family programs. If you would like more information about hospice and the Healing Patch, please call 1-800-445-6262 or visit www.homenursingagency.com. If you have questions about the Open House or volunteer opportunities, please contact Melody Ray, Healing Patch volunteer coordinator, at 1-800-445-6262, ext. 7216 or mray@homenursingagency.com or Catherine Zimmerman, hospice volunteer coordinator, at 1-800-445-6262, ext. 2657 or czimmerman@homenursingagency.com.

"Having experienced loss at a young age, I can personally recognize the need for the Healing Patch,” explains Healing Patch volunteer Tim Knob. “Devoting time as a volunteer has given me the opportunity to facilitate discussions among children who have experienced the loss of a loved one to death. Once these children are given the opportunity to openly discuss their loss in a safe environment, they quickly recognize the similarities they have with the other children in the room and develop instant connections. After witnessing that there are other children their age who share their anger, sadness, fear and worries, they realize they are not alone…and the healing process truly begins." Healing Patch volunteers serve in various roles, such as facilitating groups, planning activities for children to share with one another, greeting family members as they arrive, serving food for families to enjoy, completing sewing projects for children to remember their loved ones and assisting with special family programs. If you would like more information about hospice and the Healing Patch, please call 1-800-445-6262 or visit www.homenursingagency.com. If you have questions about the Open House or volunteer opportunities, please contact Melody Ray, volunteer coordinator, at 1-800-445-6262, ext. 7216 or mray@homenursingagency.com.

With the Lace Up program ( http://go4thegoal.org/LaceUp.aspx ), our Little League teams will wear gold gear to raise money and awareness for children fighting cancer in our local community. Since 2011, the foundation has worked with teams across the country at all levels, including professional, college, high school and travel. On Saturday, June 20th, the Little League teams will hold special Pediatric Cancer Awareness Games in which the players wear gold shoelaces and/or other gold gear. Gold is the color of pediatric cancer awareness. Photos and prices of all the gear can be seen at : http://go4thegoal.org/Shop.aspx We will be raffling off Theme Baskets for the event that day at the ball field. We will also have some local businesses providing some other items for the raffle as well. The raffle and event will be from 9:00 am to 5:30pm, during this time please visit the Event Tent to purchase gear and raffle tickets for the baskets and other items. All items will be raffled off at the close of the event, you DO NOT need to be present to win, the winners will be contacted and can pick up their winnings at the field. The money generated from buying the laces/gear for players, plus any additional donations received, stays local to support childhood cancer patients in our community. Perhaps the best part about the Lace Up campaign is that funds raised are used promptly. Often times, when money is donated to hospitals through other non-profits, money is made available for patients weeks or months later, time cancer patients simply do not have. We pride ourselves on financially supporting kids and their families within a day of receiving your funds. A letter from the founders of the Go4theGoal Foundation.......... We're honored to be the beneficiary of HASBL pediatric cancer awareness day on June 20th and hope that you will consider a donation to help support this day for our organization.

We are proud to announce that Go4theGoal has been named a Top Rated Nonprofit by Great Nonprofits for the third year in the row.

VET-FEST at Tussey Mountain
Dates:Saturday, August 29, 2015 - Sunday, August 30, 2015
Title:VET-FEST at Tussey Mountain
Description:FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 08/26/15 Rod Humphrey, Chairman Association of Penn State Veteran Alumni(APSVA) “Alumni Veterans helping Student Veterans” An IRS 501 (c) 19 Non-Profit Veterans Organization Admin@apsvainc.com Ph: (814)222-3000 VETS-FEST Music Festival at Tussey Mountain A Two-day Music Festival At Tussey Mountain Benefiting Student Veterans’ Housing At Penn State. VETS FEST – is a Two-Day Music Festival benefiting the construction of a critically needed Student Veterans' House at Penn State - a place where returning Student Veterans can live together, learn and heal. This two-day music festival - with over 14 bands featuring Blues, Country, Rock, Southern Rock and more - will be held on Saturday, August 29th and Sunday, August 30th from 11:00AM to 10:00PM at Tussey Mountain Recreation Area in Boalsburg, PA near Penn State (State College, PA). In recent years several universities around the country - Ohio State, San Diego State, New Mexico State and others - have recognized the vitally important role a separate and distinct student Veterans’ residence plays in helping student Veterans successfully transition from military to civilian life, and in dealing with issues ranging from physical disabilities to PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). In order to meet the needs of today’s returning student Veterans these universities have created separate and distinct student Veterans’ housing at their institutions. Similarly, in 1970 at Penn State returning student Veterans of the Vietnam War - facing many of the same issues as today’s student Veterans of the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq - rebuilt and rented an old house in the State College area that had previously been in a fire. They moved into the house together, and for over 20 years this Student Veterans’ House at Penn State played a major role in the lives of returning student Veterans. Sadly, in 1989 this rented building was destroyed in a fire. Since 1989 student Veterans at Penn State have not had a Student Veterans’ House where they could live together. Rod Humphrey, Chairman of the Association of Penn State Veteran Alumni said, “Today’s student Veterans at Penn State deserve no less than other student Veterans from previous eras – a place to live where they are welcomed home with open arms by other student Veterans in an atmosphere of understanding and acceptance.” We ask for your help and support of this worthy cause. Please help promote, sponsor or make a donation to “VETS-FEST at Tussey Mountain” on Saturday August 29th and Sunday August 30th - to benefit the construction of a new Student Veterans’ House at Penn State. For more information please go to WWW.VETS-FESTatTussey.com, or Contact Rod Humphrey, Chairman, Association of Penn State Veterans Alumni at (814)222-3000.

The Soul Rebels
Dates:Sunday, September 20, 2015
Title:The Soul Rebels
Description:The Soul Rebels 4:00 pm Sunday, September 20, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium The life of the party? That would be The Soul Rebels, an eight-piece brass band that blends funk and soul with elements of hip-hop, jazz, rock, and pop to evoke the atmosphere of a dance club. The band, which toured four continents in 2014 alone, took root from the shared desire of original members Lumar LeBlanc and Derrick Moss to combine the music they heard on the radio with the brass band traditions of their native New Orleans. “The Soul Rebels are the missing link between Public Enemy and Louis Armstrong,” writes a critic for The Village Voice. On tour, the band has collaborated live with Metallica, Green Day, Maceo Parker, Galactic, Slick Rick, Joey Bada$$, Big Freedia, and The String Cheese Incident and shared stages with Kanye West, John Mayer, Cee Lo Green, Jack White, Estelle, Alabama Shakes, Dave Matthews, Arcade Fire, and The Allman Brothers Band. “The Soul Rebels,” a Vibe reviewer notes, “are rebelling against one, albeit detestable thing: starchy paint-by-numbers music.” When not touring, the group’s weekly gig at New Orleans’ Le Bon Temps Roulé overflows with the kind of contagious, shout-along horns-and-percussion mayhem the musicians take with them wherever they perform. The Soul Rebels performance is part of artsUP, a full afternoon of free performances, demonstrations, tours, and activities showcasing the arts at Penn State. Artistic Viewpoints is not offered before this concert. The Soul Rebels concert does not qualify for a discounted Choice series. FREE general-admission tickets

Ragamala Dance Company
Dates:Tuesday, September 22, 2015
Title:Ragamala Dance Company
Description:Ragamala Dance Company Song of the Jasmine Ranee Ramaswamy, Aparna Ramaswamy, and Rudresh Mahanthappa, creators 7:30 pm Tuesday, September 22, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium “You don’t generally go to a performance of Bharatanatyam, the classical South Indian dance style, expecting to want to get up and dance. The form inspires a more removed kind of reverence … ,” observes a New York Times reviewer. “But … Ragamala Dance, a Bharatanatyam company from Minneapolis, upended that expectation with the New York premiere of Song of the Jasmine, a soulful, imaginative, and rhythmically contagious collaboration with the superb jazz composer and alto saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa.” Born in 1992 from the creative vision of mother and daughter Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy—co-artistic directors, choreographers, and principal dancers—Ragamala investigates the ancient origins and contemporary possibilities of Indian classical dance. The Ramaswamys, both born in India, embrace the philosophy, spirituality, myth, and mysticism of their heritage to create not works but worlds—visceral, universal experiences that use Indian art forms to express their contemporary point of view. Song of the Jasmine, which features the Ramaswamys and three other dancers, takes its inspiration from “Sacred Sayings of the Goddess,” a poem by the female mystic Andal. While no words are spoken or sung during the evening-length performance, the poem’s notions of the sacred and the sensual are explored in dance set to music played onstage by Mahanthappa and four other musicians on guitar, Indian flute, percussion, and violin.

The Knights
Dates:Thursday, October 01, 2015
Title:The Knights
Description:The Knights Music from the Great War Era 7:30 pm Thursday, October 1, 2015 Esber Recital Hall An orchestral collective, flexible in size and repertory, The Knights strives to transform the concert experience by engaging listeners and defying boundaries. The ensemble’s programs showcase the players’ roots in classical tradition and their passion for discovery. The group has, as a New Yorker reviewer observes, “become one of Brooklyn’s sterling cultural products.” The Knights evolved from late-night chamber music reading parties with friends at the home of violinist Colin Jacobsen and cellist Eric Jacobsen. The brothers are also founding members of Brooklyn Rider, the inventive string quartet that made its Center for the Performing Arts premiere in April 2015. The Jacobsens serve as artistic directors of The Knights, with Eric as conductor. In 2012, the Jacobsens were selected from among America’s most talented visual, performing, media, and literary artists to receive a prestigious United States Artists Fellowship. In recent seasons, the collective has made its Tanglewood and Ojai music festival debuts and collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Dawn Upshaw, Jeremy Denk, the Mark Morris Dance Group, the Joshua Redman Quartet, santur player Siamak Aghaei, and pipa virtuoso Wu Man. The Knights’ roster features diverse talents, including composers, arrangers, singer-songwriters, and improvisers, who bring a range of cultural influences—from jazz and klezmer to pop and indie rock—to the ensemble. On stage, the group’s camaraderie retains the intimacy and spontaneity of chamber music. The Penn State concert, with an ensemble of eleven musicians (two violinists, violist, cellist, double bassist, clarinetist, bassoonist, trumpeter, trombonist, percussionist, and pianist), features a program of music composed mostly between 1914 and 1924. The program includes Sergei Prokofiev’s Overture on Hebrew Themes, Maurice Ravel’s Piano Trio in A minor, Anton Webern’s Three Little Pieces for Cello and Piano, Ernest Bloch’s Prayer for cello and piano, Caroline Shaw’s arrangement of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Tierkreis: Leo, and Igor Stravinsky’s Suite from The Soldier’s Tale.

An Evening with Ryan Buell from A&E’s “PARANORMAL
Dates:Tuesday, October 27, 2015
Title:An Evening with Ryan Buell from A&E’s “PARANORMAL
Description:This Halloween season, instead of going to the movies to see the latest horror film or visiting a haunted fun house, witness real-life claims of the paranormal from the hosts of two of the most popular paranormal reality shows. Ryan Buell, Penn State alumnus and host of the hit A&E series, “Paranormal State,” is teaming up with Robb Demarest, from the successful SyFy franchise “Ghost Hunters,” for an amazing night, presenting evidence and cases from real-life claims of paranormal phenomenon. They will be speaking at The State Theatre on Tuesday, October 27th at 8pm. Many State College residents and Penn State students are familiar with the show, “Paranormal State,” as it chronicled the real-life investigations of (at the time) Penn State student Ryan Buell and his team of college investigators. From 2007-2012, A&E aired six wildly successful seasons of “State,” attracting millions of viewers each week. Buell continues to live in State College, although this will be his first time hosting a lecture here in nearly 3 years. Demarest hosted the successful SyFy spin-off, “Ghost Hunters: International,” as well as appearing regularly on “Ghost Hunters.” “Ghost Hunters” and “Paranormal State” are considered to be the two most popular paranormal reality TV franchises to date. And this is the first time hosts from the two shows are speaking together. Demarest focused on investigating some of the most famous haunted locations around the world in “International,” while Buell investigated various claims of hauntings, poltergeists and possession across the country. A majority of the investigations Buell investigated come from Pennsylvania and even in State College’s own backyard. A portion of the ticket proceeds will be donated to THON. Tickets are on sale via the State Theatre’s box-office. You can buy them online at www.thestatetheatre.org or by calling their box-office number 814-272-0606.

Circa Opus

Title:Circa Opus
Description:Circa Opus 7:30 pm Wednesday, November 11, 2015 Eisenhower Auditorium Fourteen acrobats and a chamber ensemble celebrate the music of Dmitri Shostakovich in Opus, a work of power, virtuosity, and poetry performed by Australia’s Circa and France’s Debussy String Quartet. The Russian composer’s quartets are, by turns, intimate, passionate, lyrical, ironic, and moving testimonies by one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists. In Opus, four of his quartets form the musical and dramatic spine for a fusion of extreme acrobatics, lyrical movement, and group choreography. More than just a source of musical accompaniment, the Debussy ensemble performs from memory and is woven into the action. A critic for the British newspaper The Guardian describes Opus as “extraordinarily moving.” A reviewer for Canada’s La Presse calls it “a masterpiece of circus art.” The performance delves into the complex relationships between the individual and the group, between the march of history and the dictates of the heart, and between the tragic and the comic. Since 2006, Brisbane’s Circa has blended bodies, light, sound, and skills to achieve its bold vision for contemporary circus. The company has toured to six continents and performed in more than thirty countries. Based in Lyon, the Debussy quartet garners international praise for its many recordings and live performances. The ensemble, winner of the Evian International String Quartet Competition, was created in 1990. Buy Tickets: Adult $42 University Park Student $19 18 and Younger $32

Description:Apollo’s Fire The Cleveland Baroque Orchestra The Power of Love: Passions of Handel and Vivaldi Amanda Forsythe, soprano Jeannette Sorrell, conductor 7:30 pm Tuesday, November 17, 2015 Schwab Auditorium Renowned for “forging a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music” (BBC Music Magazine), the Apollo’s Fire chamber orchestra makes its fourth appearance at Schwab Auditorium in The Power of Love. The ensemble’s commitment to personal, emotional communication finds an ideal match in soprano Amanda Forsythe, who has taken Covent Garden, the Rossini Festival, and the Boston Early Music Festival by storm. “Amanda Forsythe was the star of the show,” writes a Wall Street Journal reviewer. “Her soprano has just the right amount of weight and vibrato; it soars, spins, and sparkles with high dudgeon.” The soprano and Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo’s Fire artistic director and harpsichordist, explore the passions of the Baroque in this program of love, angst, and revenge. The concert features luscious George Frideric Handel arias, from the forthcoming Apollo’s Fire album with Forsythe, plus fiery Antonio Vivaldi concertos. The program closes with Sorrell’s acclaimed arrangement of Vivaldi’s La Folia, which the ensemble performs from memory and which has brought audiences to their feet at Madrid’s Royal Theatre, London’s Wigmore Hall, Bordeaux’s Grand Opera House, and concert halls throughout North America.
