May's Creative Mixer

You are invited to May's Creative Mixer!   

Join the Salida Council for the Arts on Thursday, May 11 in the Paquette Gallery of the SteamPlant Event Center for a fine and festive social hour, from 5: 30 to 7.    Munchies are served, the cash bar is open, live keyboard music will be playing and you’ll hear news about SO many creative projects being launched.  Join us, bring your friends, meet some new ones,  and, if you have news about your own artistic endeavor, you’re invited to step up on the “Soapbox” and share the excitement.

Imagine!  The guest artist in the Paquette this month is Salida Circus, Colorado’s most creative circus!  Jennifer Dempsey, founder/performer/mama/fundraiser supreme will be on hand at Creative Mixer to tell us about a special celebration for Memorial Day Weekend.

Salida Circus celebrates it’s 10-Year Anniversary!  Hundreds of kids - adults too - have participated in our circus’s festive program over the years: aerial acts, stiltwalkers, tumbling, juggles, clowning, doggy performers with more and more exciting acts added regularly.

Performing all over the state, and internationally in Ireland and Jordan, they stage workshops and special performances, indoors and out.  Salida Circus always presents good fellowship with colorful entertainment.

Creative Mixer is honored to feature keyboarder Joan Lubeck, in her first Mixer appearance.  Joan ( who also has a connection to Salida Circus, ask her! ) is new to Salida and is booking background music in small venues.  ( Does your gallery or store still need some music for Art Walk? )  She’s a vocalist, accompanying herself on piano and ukulele.   Her extensive background is as a church accompanist, choir director, and soloist.  
Joan is now exploring new opportunities, such as joining a small ensemble or pairing up with a guitarist/vocalist, so ask her about that too!

Free Movie @ The SteamPlant

Each month, Sellars Project Space, in partnership with the Salida Creative District, hosts a variety of inspiring and thought-provoking documentaries. These films are carefully selected to connect with the community by inspiring a stronger awareness of social issues, nature & the environment, as well as the arts and artists, to enhance community engagement and participation. 

From This Day Forward is a moving portrayal of an American family coping with one of the most intimate of transformations. When director Sharon Shattuck’s father came out as transgender and changed her name to Trisha, Sharon was in the awkward throes of middle school. Her father’s transition to female was difficult for her straight-identified mother, Marcia, to accept, but her parents stayed together. As the Shattucks reunite to plan Sharon’s wedding, she seeks a deeper understanding of how her parents’ marriage survived the radical changes that threatened to tear them apart.

The movie is scheduled for Monday, February 20th, at the Salida SteamPlant Theater.  
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., movie begins at 7:00 p.m. There will be a short discussion period following the film - all are welcome to stay for the conversation.

The Noteables & You've Got Male - Follow That Star!

Reserve the weekend of December 9-11 for a holiday musical extravaganza with The Noteables and You've Got Male.  Presented by Salida Sings, "Follow That Star!" directed by Linda Taylor, will lift your spirits and remind you of the healing, grace and light that accompanies the Christmas season.  We will be joined by our drummer, Kurt Wipperfurth and special guest, Bruce Warren, who will play familiar carols on his angelic hammered dulcimer 

The Noteables will open the show with an unusual arrangement of "Angels We Have Heard On High". The imagery in "The Snow Has A Song" will make you yearn for those quiet, winter nights when the snow falls gently on the barren trees. "Winter Wolf", with audience participation, will take you through the life cycle of this majestic animal. The hilarious "Pie Carols", set to recognizable melodies, exalt the culinary wonders of Christmas pies.  "Bring A Torch Jeanette, Isabella" and the gospel, "Mary, Mary Had-A But One Child" get you to the manger on time.  

You've Got Male will sing the renaissance-like processional “Follow That Star!" with Mary Cuyler on flute. A stunning arrangement of "I Heard the Bells On Christmas Day" compliments the haunting "Winter Gift" describing all the wonders of a snow covered world. When You've Got Male starts singing “Oh Christmas Tree”, The Noteables join in for a little fun and a little more pie.

The two choruses will combine to perform 7 songs including, "Gather Round", with a contagious calypso beat, the lively gospel, "Can You Hear The Angels?", and the pensive winter story "While The Snow Lay Sleeping". Mozart gets a turn with a four part round, using the lyrics from "Deck the Halls". Carol of Winter Peace creates a vocal tapestry of two familiar melodies with altered lyrics that speak to the Christmas message of "peace on Earth, good will to all." 

Performances are scheduled as follows:

Friday, December 9, 7:30 p.m.  Clearview Community Church, 457 Rodeo Road, Buena Vista, CO

Saturday, December 10, 7:30 p.m. SteamPlant Event Center, Salida, CO

The Notables & You've Got Male - Follow That Star!

Reserve the weekend of December 9-11 for a holiday musical extravaganza with The Noteables and You've Got Male.  Presented by Salida Sings, "Follow That Star!" directed by Linda Taylor, will lift your spirits and remind you of the healing, grace and light that accompanies the Christmas season.  We will be joined by our drummer, Kurt Wipperfurth and special guest, Bruce Warren, who will play familiar carols on his angelic hammered dulcimer 

The Noteables will open the show with an unusual arrangement of "Angels We Have Heard On High". The imagery in "The Snow Has A Song" will make you yearn for those quiet, winter nights when the snow falls gently on the barren trees. "Winter Wolf", with audience participation, will take you through the life cycle of this majestic animal. The hilarious "Pie Carols", set to recognizable melodies, exalt the culinary wonders of Christmas pies.  "Bring A Torch Jeanette, Isabella" and the gospel, "Mary, Mary Had-A But One Child" get you to the manger on time.  

You've Got Male will sing the renaissance-like processional “Follow That Star!" with Mary Cuyler on flute. A stunning arrangement of "I Heard the Bells On Christmas Day" compliments the haunting "Winter Gift" describing all the wonders of a snow covered world. When You've Got Male starts singing “Oh Christmas Tree”, The Noteables join in for a little fun and a little more pie.

The two choruses will combine to perform 7 songs including, "Gather Round", with a contagious calypso beat, the lively gospel, "Can You Hear The Angels?", and the pensive winter story "While The Snow Lay Sleeping". Mozart gets a turn with a four part round, using the lyrics from "Deck the Halls". "Carol of Winter Peace" creates a vocal tapestry of two familiar melodies with altered lyrics that speak to the Christmas message of "peace on Earth, good will to all."

Saturday, December 10, 7:30 p.m. SteamPlant Event Center, Salida, CO
