Here are some pictures from our local Memorial Day Parade!
As part of their Classical Series, the Ross Ragland Theater hosts the High School Honors Recital, where students get the opportunity perform solos on stage in front of an audience. To perform in this event, the student must be recommended to be there.
These are some of the best musicians you will see in town, performing on everything from instruments to singing. So go out and show them all of the support that you can! You won’t regret it.
Tickets are $15 to view all the performers, buy them HERE
Have you ever seen a scroll carved for a Violin? Watch to see how it is done!
As with anything on these instruments, it goes through several steps. It goes through them rather quickly, but you get to see what he is doing for the most part. Watch and enjoy! To see more from Gregg Alf, visit his website: http://www.alfstudios.com/
On March 17th, the KU orchestras and the advanced choirs will be performing at Mills Elementary at 7:30pm. These concerts are free, so go and watch these students perform, it is more than worth your time to do so.
I don’t know what they will be performing this time, but it will likely be similar if not exactly what they will be performing at their contests coming up. The Orchestra specifically is going to Ashland for the SOMEA contest on the 19th.
Founded in 1991, the orchestra, comprised of some of Russia’s finest young string players, has carved a niche for itself under the creative baton of its founder and music director Misha Rachlevsky. Whether it is the highly-acclaimed CDs or its mesmerizing concerts, Chamber Orchestra Kremlin’s warmth and high energy create addictive performances that stay with listeners long after the last note has been played.

I had completely forgotten about these guys. Though I don’t like all of their interpretations, they are very fun to watch, and put a new twist on music. If you have the opportunity, head over and take a look at their YouTube page.
Enjoy the video and take a chance to look at their other videos.
On occasion, KU organizes what we call a Playathon. This year, they will be playing at Fred Meyers on March 2nd from 12pm to 6pm, likely in the furniture section like they have in the past.
The Playathon gives a group like the KU Orchestra the opportunity to get in and playing where there is a lot of foot traffic. By doing this, a lot more people get exposed to the orchestra and music they wouldn’t otherwise hear. It is a great fundraising opportunity for any group that would like to organize something like this.
In the past, KU has been in the furniture department, while also playing in various other parts of the store in smaller groups. It’s probably a pretty safe assumption that they will be in the same place again. It’s a good place for the musicians to lay out their cases so that they are out of the way and safe, usually there is also a healthy number of people walking through that area.
Whatever they want! There will be quartets playing their own music. They will also play music from the normal KU orchestra group, and there might potentially be some solos to listen to.
Well… Everybody! Head over there, especially if you have any shopping to do, watch them for a bit, and if you are feeling really charitable, throw in a few dollars. Every little bit helps a program like the one we have in Klamath Falls, just being there and showing your support helps. However, it is a fundraiser, so every little dollar helps as well.
The times for this even will be 12pm to 6pm.
The KU Chamber Orchestra, led by Brent Hakanson, and the Klamath Symphony will be performing at the Ross Ragland Theater this Saturday the 22nd. A couple of the numbers being played will be a Mozart Symphony and a Weber Concertino.
As stated before, the concert will be at the Ross Ragland Theater
That is not a price you can beat for any performance. I highly recommend going to this concert.
The Coats - Nationally touring artists, The Coats are the Pacific Northwest’s premiere a cappella band. They have performed for MDA benefits, the Susan G. Komen foundation, high schools, colleges, fairs, and community centers across the country, the President of the United States, and have shared the stage with dozens of acts as vastly different as Gallagher, The Beach Boys, Jay Leno, Trisha Yearwood, and Eddie Money.
I have yet again decided to add a new even simpler theme for the website. There are a number of reasons for this which I will try to cover vaguely.
I am currently working multiple jobs and do not have the time to maintain a full featured website. By keeping this to a post based site, I can spend more time just keeping news posts coming out, or just some fun posts!
Yes, I am a business. But, I would like to have a website that is more fun, less business oriented, and more informative in general. By keeping a post based site, I believe that it can be more of all these things. It will also give me a better opportunity to interact with all of you!
So pitch in, and let me know what you would like to see in more posts. If there is information you would like to post here yourself, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message me on twitter/facebook.
