Presented by the High School Academy Students, Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere and has now been adapted for high school performers in Sweeney Todd School Edition. Stephen Sondheim's and Hugh Wheeler's (A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures) tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world. An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth-century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun! This special School Edition has been masterfully adapted, working directly with Mr. Sondheim to retain the dark wit and grand scope of the original work, with a few lyric and key changes to facilitate high school productions. At the show's core is a challenging score of epic proportion with two tasty tour-de-force roles in Sweeney and his comic female accomplice, Mrs. Lovett. Sweeney Todd School Edition is sure to be the highlight of any high school's season.

The three very distinct composers presented on this concert all found great inspiration in connecting with their roots. Zoltan Kodály's Dances of Galánta are a collection of village dances reimagined as a symphonic work and transformed with colors of the modern symphony orchestra. Next, Alexi Kenney, winner of the 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, brings his unique perspective to Dvorak’s Violin Concerto — full of lyricism inspired by the rich Czech folkloric tradition. The concert’s centerpiece is Beethoven’s beloved "Pastoral" symphony, which was inspired by the composer’s love of the countryside. Program: Kodály: Dances of Galánta Dvořák: Violin Concerto Beethoven: Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral” Mei-Ann Chen, guest conductor Alexi Kenney, violin

Tales of Adventure” on March 10th, 7:30pm at Isis Music Hall on Haywood Road in West Asheville. Audiences will enjoy a laugh-out-loud and remarkable storytelling journey from a leap in New Zealand to “Dorky Spandex vs. Macho Leather” on the Blue Ridge Parkway to the sparkling “Well at the End of the World.” One of America’s most celebrated storytellers, Connie Regan-Blake has performed her folktales and true-life stories for audiences in 47 states, 18 countries, and 6 continents so far! She has told at main stage concert halls, schools, festivals, libraries and at corporate conferences. Good Morning America credits her as “the mother of the American storytelling renaissance.” Her archive was recently adopted by the Library of Congress. Even with such accolades and world-wide fame, Regan-Blake still touches audiences with the authentic mountain charm she did when she first started her career in the 1970s, traveling America’s highways in a pick-up truck, stopping in towns to tell stories, quite some time before “storytelling” left the front porches of Appalachia. Regan-Blake is the only performer invited onstage for every National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee, since its conception in 1973 when featured a handful of tellers, a handful of audience, and a load of haybales to sit on. One of the tellers was Regan-Blake’s mentor, Ray Hicks, the only human ever featured on the cover of Smithsonian Magazine—which only ever has treasures on it. Hicks was a master of telling Jack Tales. When word of his talent reached across the nation, Johnny Carson sent a producer up to the Hicks home (they did not have a telephone) to arrange an appearance on The Tonight Show. Hicks replied, “You tell Johnny if he wants to hear a story, he can come up here and I’ll be happy to tell him one.” It has been Regan-Blake who has carried Hicks’ mastery into the world, stirring a whole series of generations to, in the words of Hicks himself, “Connie, tell on, tell on.” Local poet and producer, Laura Hope-Gill, says of Regan-Blakes’ performances, “Hearing Connie tell reminds me to slow down and pay attention to life. There’s always story going on, and we can miss it.” Throughout her career, Connie’s rare talent has transformed convention halls into wondrous landscapes and turned packed theaters into intimate circles of friends. She has performed at the nation’s top folk music and storytelling festivals, including the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington D.C., the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Orem, Utah, and to Ugandan women building their lives through the paper-bead jewelry collective, Bead for Life, for which Regan-Blake is an ambassador. Audiences can expect to laugh out loud as Regan-Blake describes her selection process of a hang-gliding guide in New Zealand and to hold their breath as her husband, Phil, takes on the Blue Ridge Parkway on bicycle, as well as to be enthralled by an old traditional story made new in Regan-Blake’s talent and skill in telling. This is a family friendly event. Available for interview: Connie Regan-Blake, office: 828-258-1113 email: [email protected] To learn more about Connie, visit www.storywindow.com.

March 13 - April 7, 2019 Wednesdays – Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sunday Matinees at 2:00pm Additional Saturday Matinees on March 30 and April 6, 2019 When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth. “SILENT SKY is a startling, entertaining true story of a brilliant, history-making woman—hitherto unknown to many of us.” —AtlantaInTown.com Produced by Immediate Theatre Project.

Whether you’re already published, mired in NaNoWriMo drafts you’re unsure how to shape, deep into a memoir project, ready to play, or fully devoted to fiction, the skills required in flash fiction and flash nonfiction will improve your ability to handle scene, embed metaphor, and target a character’s yearning or desire with precision. In this 4-hour course, you will: learn the defining traits of flash form writing, study noteworthy examples, write from prompts, and receive light feedback. You will leave the course feeling confident about scene, concision, and that elusive “so what?” factor that can turn anecdotal writing into a universally impactful narrative.  To register by check instead of via Eventbrite, mail your check to Flatiron Writers Room, LLC, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC  28806. You will be registered when we receive your payment, space permitting.

Haydn: String Quartet, Op. 76 No. 1 Mendelssohn: String Quartet, Op. 80 Amy Beach: Piano Quintet in F-sharp minor, Op. 67 The New York Times recently lauded the Takács Quartet for “revealing the familiar as unfamiliar, making the most traditional of works feel radical once more”, and the Financial Times described a recent concert at the Wigmore Hall: “Even in the most fiendish repertoire these players show no fear, injecting the music with a heady sense of freedom. At the same time, though, there is an uncompromising attention to detail: neither a note nor a bow-hair is out of place.” Since his triumph as winner of the 1970 Chopin International Piano Competition, pianist Garrick Ohlsson has established himself worldwide as a musician of magisterial interpretive and technical prowess.
