Percussion Ensemble I: Lou Harrison Centennial

Celebrates the Centennial of American composer Lou Harrison with the Moores School of Music!

The Moores
School of Music Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Blake Wilkins,
celebrates the Centennial of American composer Lou Harrison. A celebrated
paragon of the West Coast School, Harrison was a pioneer of percussion ensemble
composition and major contributor of early literature for the medium. Many of
his works draw upon “found sounds” not normally regarded as standard
instruments, such wash tubs, spring coils and brake drums. 




The program will feature Harrison’s Concerto for
Violin and Percussion Ensemble. The program will also include the composer’s
Canticles No. 1 & 3 and the Suite for Percussion.

Black, White & Between

http://www.jomarvisions.com/black-white-and-between

At JoMar Visions we are exploring again the theme of black and white and all shades in between. It could be a pencil or ink drawing, monochrome painting, a sculpture, jewelry or black and white photography. 

Emphasis is also given to the shades of grey that exist between the two extremes. Without the color, it’s all about the form; the shapes of your designs will take on a new significance and the viewers will see them as they are, unshrouded.  

There will also be a silent auction where 100% will go towards flood relief and you can benefit your favorite charity right there on the spot. 

There will be live music, bites and drinks and this event is in conjunction with JoMar Visions Third Saturday open Studios. 

When:
Sep 16, 2017
- Silent Auction for hurricane relief  - Live music by Erica Nicole - Free & Open to the public- Plenty of on site Parking- Complimentary Hors d'Oeuvres

Modernize

http://www.jomarvisions.com/modernize

Modern art itself has been a movement of ever changing styles, including "impressionism", "abstract", "cubism", and many other styles of the 20th century. "Post-modern" is a modernization of "modern art" and many other styles which come and go but are always intertwined into the future styles we haven't even dreamed of yet. We asked the artists: "So what's your dream? What is your vision?" Our artists responded to the challenge with this beautiful exhibit.

 

There will be live music, bites and drinks and this event is in conjunction with JoMar Visions Third Saturday open Studios.

Dead Rockstar Sing-a-Long Club

An edgy theatrical concert + movement piece honoring the work of George Michael and Sharon Jones.

WORLD PREMIERE

DEAD ROCK STAR SING-A-LONG CLUB

Directed by Matt Hune

The
second annual Dead Rock Star Sing-A-Long Club honors our most beloved
musicians who have died within the year. Last year, it was a Prince and
Bowie inspired rumination on loss and public vs. private grief. This
year, it’s George Michael and Sharon Jones and
it’s all about romantic love. The audience gets songbooks at the door
and is welcome to sing a long if they choose. Join us for this upbeat
musical eulogy that’s part concert, part theatre, and total celebration.
