Celtic Music with a Latin Passion

Few pop stars pack the energy, virtuosity, imagination, daring, and charisma into their concerts and recordings as Galician multi-instrumentalist Carlos Núñez does. He is the world’s most famous player of the gaita, the bagpipes of Galicia, Spain’s northwest, Atlantic Ocean-abutting region rich in vibrant, uniquely expressive Celtic traditional music.

Carlos’s instrumental arsenal also includes the ocarina, assorted whistles, Scottish highland pipes, uilleann (Irish) pipes, bombarde (a kind of Breton oboe), biniou koz (Breton bagpipes), and pastoral pipes (18th-century precursor of the uilleann pipes). This impressive panoply of instruments provides Carlos and his audiences with a variety of textures matched to that of his repertoire.

Carlos has expanded the borders of Celtic music to include Flamenco, Fado, Cuban, Mexican, Brazilian and Classical music, Movie Soundtracks, Contemporary Dance… As he describes it, he plays Celtic music with Latin passion.

Made possible through generous grants from WESTAF and the Wyoming Arts Council,through funding from the NEA and the Wyoming State Legislature.

“Dracula” A Legend in Motion

The Park County Arts Council is pleased to sponsor the University of Wyoming Department of Theater and Dance performance

“Dracula:  the Legend in Motion”

Friday November 4, 2016

7:00 PM

Nelson Performing Arts Auditorium in Powell

There is no admission charge

Donations are Welcome!

The show features choreography by Jennifer Deckert, UW associate professor of dance, and music composed and performed by Sean Stone, UW assistant lecturer of musical theater.

The production portrays the wonder, desire and terror of the original novel in a story of passion and courage that takes audience members from the mystery-shrouded depths of Transylvania to the stylishly steampunked streets of London.

The story begins with the tearful farewell of young lovers Jonathan Harker and Mina as Harker journeys to the mysterious land of Transylvania. As Harker struggles against superstitious villagers and the evil intentions of his host, the madness of Renfield is explored, alongside the stoic Dr. Seward. Soon, Dracula arrives in London and puts Mina’s friend Lucy under his thrall.

Lucy soon descends into darkness, Harker returns, and Professor Van Helsing arrives to provide much needed aid. As tragedy strikes the group, Renfield finally succumbs to Dracula’s charm and menace. A changed Lucy terrorizes London and, under Van Helsing’s guidance, the mourners become hunters. Mina, left behind, is seduced by Dracula — the discovery of which ignites a desperate hunt that can only end in battle with the most fearsome of ancient evils.

Set to an exciting, contemporary score, and featuring atmospheric lighting, sets and sound, and edgy costumes, “Dracula: The Legend in Motion” invites audiences to leave the rational world behind and become immersed in this dark fantasy.

Shakespeare in the Schools

Monday October 17  Meeteetse School– 1:00pm
Tuesday October 18  Powell High School Auditorium– 8:30am

Park County Arts Council sponsors annual residencies by Shakespeare in the Schools for all three of our county school districts.  Shakespeare in the Schools is a high school age-appropriate educational program providing an eight-member professional company that performs a 75-minute production of a complete Shakespearean play complete with ornate costumes and scenery along with a Q&A session between the actors and students and a full complement of workshops following the performance.

We are proud to provide this educational component in our season.  It provides a very important element that brings a live performance of Shakespeare for our high school students.  Teaching Shakespeare is most effective with the poetry of his language presented live.  The company provides teaching guides in advance of the performance to assist English teachers.

We pay for these residencies in part through grants from the Wyoming Arts Council whose funding comes from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Wyoming State Legislature.  The other portion comes from people just like you, who make donations to the Park County Arts Council.  Thank you so very much for supporting important educational programs mile Shakespeare in the Schools.
