Presented by Emporium Presents & Standing Ovation Productions
Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Give a listen to “Old Photographs,” the closing track on Tommy Emmanuel’s It’s Never Too Late, and you’ll hear the distinctive squeak of finger noise as he runs his hands across the frets of his Maton Signature TE guitar. Many musicians would edit those imperfections out, but to Emmanuel, those imperfections are perfect.

 A master technician, Emmanuel started professionally at age 6, rising through the ranks as a studio player and member of several Australian rock bands before he set off on a solo career. One of only five musicians handpicked by his mentor, Chet Atkins, as a Certified Guitar Player (CGP), he’s piled up numerous accolades, including two Grammy nominations, two ARIA Awards from the Australian Recording Industry Association (the Aussie equivalent of the Recording Academy) and repeated honors in the Guitar Player magazine reader’s poll.

A noted fingerstyle guitarist, Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but Emmanuel never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every date. That leaves him open to those technical imperfections, though they also provide some of the humanity to an other-worldly talent.

“It’s all about the feeling of the music,” Emmanuel says. “And it has to make me feel something. I’m still playing for myself, you know, because I figure if I please me, then I’m pretty sure I’m gonna please you. And that’s not an arrogant statement, it’s just quality control.”

Their Christmas party, and ours, celebrates courage, generosity, grace, survival, and hope.

Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas from the Fam-O-Lee" Show

Rose State College Hudiburg Chevrolet Center
Midwest City
Presented by Emporium Presents
Friday, December 16, 2016 - 7:30pm

"The road goes on forever..."

It's not always easy to sum up a career - let alone a life's ambition - so succinctly, but those five words form Robert Earl Keen's calling-card anthem just about do it. You can complete the lyric with the next five words - the ones routinely shouted back at Keen by thousands of fans a night ("and the party never ends!") - just to punctuate the point with a flourish, but it's the part about the journey that gets right to the heart of what makes Keen tick. Some people take up a life of playing music with the goal of someday reaching a destination of fame and fortune; but from the get-go, Keen just wanted to write and sing his own songs, and to keep writing and singing them for as long as possible. 

Opening for Robert Earl Keen is Hot Club of Cowtown

Wednesday, January 18, 2017 - 7pm

The Junior League of Oklahoma City welcomes actress and writer, Carrie Fisher, as the keynote for Speaker in the City, taking place on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 7 p.m., at the Civic Center Music Hall in downtown Oklahoma City. All proceeds from this event, and a VIP event immediately following, will be reinvested locally, expressly designated to improve the health and wellness of our Oklahoma City community.

Fisher, popularly known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars Trilogy, has taken a groundbreaking and very public stance on mental illness. According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, 1 in 4 adults experience mental illness in a given year. Despite the high frequency of cases, negative attitudes about mental illness continue to discourage people from seeking help. Fisher's public admission of her bipolar disease has paved the way for people to learn about the little understood disease. She’s given honest testimonies of the trials and triumphs of battling addiction and bipolar disorder, displaying a no-holds-barred attitude when it comes to discussing the realities of mental health conditions.

 The event will be a question and answer format.  All questions will be pre-submitted through the Junior League of Oklahoma City’s website. Please visit jloc.org in order to submit your question today.

Presented by Canterbury Voices
Sunday, April 2, 2017 - 3pm

Do you remember the 1956 epic film The Ten Commandments starring Charlton Heston?  It is still shown on television each year, and dramatizes the biblical story of Moses.  The same story is the subject of Handel’s Israel in Egypt, which begins with the Israelites’ bondage in Egypt, followed by descriptions of the plagues that Moses calls down upon the Egyptians to persuade the Pharaoh to let the Israelites go. Eventually the Pharaoh is persuaded and the Israelites are led out of Egypt by Moses, only to be pursued by the Pharaoh’s army of 600 chariots.  The Israelites finally arrive at the Red Sea in front of them and trapped by mountains all around.  Seeing Pharaoh’s soldiers coming, they are terrified.  God tells Moses to stretch his hand out and the Red Sea waters part. The Israelites flee through the Red Sea, a wall of water on either side and dry land under their feet.  The Egyptian army, arriving at the sea, charge in after them, but once the Israelites are safe on the other side, the sea rolls back in, covering the Egyptian army, its chariots and horses.  The Israelites celebrate the power of their God and their deliverance.

What a dramatic story! And this setting by Handel is full of “word painting” where the sound of the music imitates the text imagery. The plagues, especially, inspired him to create some of his most colorful painting – one can easily hear the hopping of the frogs, the buzzing of the flies, the pounding of the fiery hail, and the eerie darkness.

It is a great irony that Handel who is associated with some of the greatest choral music in the English language (composer of the famous Messiah) was in fact a German whose lifelong interest was Italian opera.  Handel wrote more than 40 operas, borrowing from some of that music for his choral music.  Israel in Egypt is unique in its abundance of choruses and double choruses, and now stands second only to Messiah as Handel’s most beloved work.

Taylor Mac's dark comedy is the story of a 21st century prodigal son. A veteran with PTSD responds to his father's stroke by coming home to help care for him, but finds himself in the aftermath of another regime overthrow. His mother (formerly a battered wife) and his newly transitioned transgender sibling are finally thriving in the household that used to be ruled by dad. HIR (a gender pronoun pronounced "here") is a metaphor for both gender and place, and the play will have audiences crying in laughter and sympathy as they attempt to discover if we can all adapt to live here, now.

"Mac [...] isn't so much remaking the world in his own image as he is addressing subjects that remain, remarkably, underplayed on the American stage: what bodies mean and what stories women are allowed to tell or perform." - The New Yorker

"A crackling production of a remarkable, audacious, uproarious black comedy with a daring combination of realism and madcap absurdity." - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment.

"I don't want to give too much away, but this time we're going to play a little game while we're at it. Plus, you'll see things I've never been allowed to do on TV." He's also contemplating more sophisticated protective gear for folks in the first few rows...just in case things get messy...again.

Based on the cult classic film of the same name, The Toxic Avenger is a campy yet topical musical that explores pollution and the monsters (or heroes) it creates. Joes DiPietro wrote the book of the musical, Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan wrote the music, and together they wrote the lyrics. The Toxic Avenger is an unconventional musical about an environmental scientist who sets out to save New Jersey from the toxic waste that is filling the city, but in the process mutates into Toxie, "the super hero that New Jersey needs!" Reviewers agree that this is the musical for B-film lovers, and great fun for those "in the know and in the mood."
