American Jukebox Show Returns to Branson, Missouri in 2018

American Jukebox Show Starring The 5th Dimension

The American Jukebox Show returns to Branson, Missouri in 2018. This is where the show began. It plays at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center and Theatre.

I'm thrilled to say The 5th Dimension accepted our invitation to return to the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center and Theatre to perform in 2018 in a show that's so close to my heart.”

— Jimmy Osmond

BRANSON, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, December 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — BRANSON, MO — The American Jukebox Show comes home to Branson, Missouri, where the show began. It plays at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center and Theatre from the last week of September through the first two weeks of October 2018.

The show will star the legendary vocal group, The 5th Dimension, which is known for such musical hits as, "Up, Up and Away," "One Less Bell to Answer," "Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine in," and "Wedding Bell Blues."

The 5th Dimension appeared at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center and Theatre in November 2017. As the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center and Theatre owner, Jimmy Osmond, explains, "Audiences were so enthusiastic about The 5th Dimension's performances during the holiday season that we had to ask them to come back. I'm thrilled to say they accepted our invitation, and they'll be starring in a production that means so much to me."

Osmond remembers launching the show back in 2002 at the American Jukebox Theatre in Branson. It featured chart-topping hits from every decade. Osmond fondly recalls, "These were some of America's greatest hits. Everyone loved to sing along to these blasts from the past. And they still do."

The action-packed variety show ran for a couple of years in Branson. Then Osmond took the production on the road to theme parks, cities all across the United States, cruise ships, and overseas. "The American Jukebox Show has evolved over the years. The performers, hosts, and songs change from year to year. There are always surprises, and it's always family-friendly entertainment. Audiences keep coming back, and they experience something different each time they see the show."

Jimmy Osmond will join the American Jukebox Show in October 2018. Until then, he knows the show will be in good hands. "It's great that we have The Fifth Dimension starring in this year's show," he says with a smile. "Branson, get ready! The American Jukebox Show is coming back!"

New Years Celebration — January 9 @ 8 PM

The North/South Chamber Orchestra celebrates the New Year performing a free-admission concert in New York City.

The performers, all excellent…North/South Consonance is a high quality ensemble…The listener was rewarded with a diverting sampler of recent compositional styles”

— New York Times

NEW YORK, NY, USA, December 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The North/South Chamber Orchestra welcomes the New Year on Tuesday
evening January 9, 2018 performing optimistic and vibrant works by
four living American composers.

Violinist Kurt Nikkanen and pianist Maria Asteriadou will appear as
soloists in the first New York performance of Encore II by Dinos
Constantinides — the Greek-American composer celebrating his 90th
birthday next year.

Other works also receiving their first hearing in New York include
the American Elegy by Richard Brooks; Hextet by Paul Reale; and Fire
Within by the ensemble's conductor, Max Lifchitz.

The concert will take place at the intimate and acoustically superior
auditorium of Christ & St Stephen's Church (120 West 69th Street) on
Manhattan's Upper West Side. The free-admission event will start at 8
PM and end around 9:30 PM. The auditorium is ADA accessible. No
tickets or reservations needed.

The composers will be in attendance and will introduce their works to
the audience. Composers and performers are available for interviews
and media events. They may be contacted via <ns.concerts@att.net>.

Since its inception in 1980, the North/South Consonance, Inc. has
brought to the attention of the New York City public over 1,000 works
by composers hailing from the Americas and elsewhere representing a
wide spectrum of aesthetic views. Its activities are made possible in
part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts
and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs as well as by
the generosity of numerous individual donors.

ABOUT THE COMPOSERS AND THEIR MUSIC

Brooklyn-based Richard Brooks has received grants from the National
Endowment for the Arts and the NYS Music Teachers National
Association. A graduate of the Crane School of Music and New York
University, Brooks was elected President of the American Composers
Alliance in 1993. His opera Rapunzel — commissioned by Binghamton's
Tri-Cities Opera — has also been mounted by the Cincinnati Opera,
the Opera Theatre of Northern Virginia and Denver's Central City
Singers. His compositions appear on recordings issued by the Capstone
and Ravello labels.

Brooks' American Elegy for string orchestra was written in response
to the horrific events of September 11. The composer states that the
work's musical fabric "incorporates fragments from the melody of
America the Beautiful generating a type of reverie and reverent
homage to the memory of all that was lost as a result of the 9/11
attack on America."

The New York Time, described Dinos Constantinides as a composer whose
"music speaks simply, often combining Greek modes with an attractive
quality of ritual mystery." Born in 1928 in Ioannina, Constantinides
began his musical studies in his native Greece before moving to the
US to train at Indiana University and The Juilliard School. As a
violinist, Constantinides played with the Indianapolis Symphony
before serving as concertmaster for the Baton Rouge Symphony. He is
the current Music Director of the Louisiana Sinfonietta.

Constantinides' Encore II — a double concerto for violin, piano and
string orchestra in one movement — is a vivacious and rhythmically
exciting composition. Its simple formal structure features a hasty
opening, a lyrical interlude and a fast concluding section. The
soloists for the occasion, violinist Kurt Nikkanen and pianist Maria
Asteriadou, premiered the work in Baton Rouge last September.

Max Lifchitz began his musical training in his native Mexico City
before relocating to NYC to attend The Juilliard School. Active as
composer, pianist and conductor, he earned first prize in the 1976
International Gaudeamus Competition for Performers of Twentieth
Century Music held in Holland. He has appeared on concert stages
throughout Latin America, Europe and the United States. His recently
completed Fire Within was written as a reaction to the tragic passing
of Heather Heyer in the midst of the distressing events that
transpired in Charlottsville, VA last August.

Los Angeles-based Paul Reale studied at Columbia University and The
University of Pennsylvania. His mentors included Otto Luening, George
Crumb and Edgar Varese. Between 1969 and 2004 he was professor of
music at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is the
recipient of six awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the
Luckmann Prize and Beeler Prizes and commissions from the Jerome
Foundation and the Ahmanson Organ Trust. Commercial recordings of his
works are available from Music & Arts and Naxos.

Reale writes that the music of Hextet "summons up images of witches,
zombies, and other dark world creatures, as is revealed in the names
of the three movements: I: Tarantella, II: Zombies, III:
Walpurgisnacht. Throughout the movements are all kinds of scary
effects made out of collisions of ragged dissonances, overlapping
glissandi, and harmonic surprises."

MEET THE PERFORMERS

American violinist Kurt Nikkanen made his Carnegie Hall debut,
performing with the New York Symphony before being invited by Zubin
Mehta to perform the Paganini Concerto No.1 with the New York
Philharmonic for a Young People's Concert. The Concertmaster of the
New York City Ballet Orchestra, Nikkanen has given numerous
performances of the John Adams Violin Concerto, with orchestras such
as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, London Sinfonietta, Deutsches
Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Oregon Symphony, HallÉ Orchestra and
Cincinnati Symphony (all under the composer's direction).

The New York Times described pianist Maria Asteriadou's palying as
"showing unusual poise, confident technique and an intimate contact
with style usually reserved for mature professionals and very few of
them." A graduate of Juilliard and Manhattan School of Music,
Asteriadou has performed in major halls through the United States,
Canada, and Europe, including Carnegie Hall.

Embarking on its 38th consecutive season, the North/South Chamber
Orchestra presents a yearly concert series in New York City while
maintaining an active recording schedule. The ensemble's recents
release features five fascinating compositions inspired by Arshile
Gorky's abstract expressionist paintings by New York based composer
Robert Martin.

Artists Will Oldham and Elsa Hansen chosen as NPAF’s 2017 Artists in Residence at Hawai’i Volcanoes

Will and Elsa Oldham (photo by Christian Hansen)

Bonnie Prince Billy Performing (Photo by Ryo Mitamura)

Songwriter Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Elsa Hansen come to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park for unique performance

The largest attractor of this residency has to do with exploring the resonance of this place for me, for my wife Elsa, and for others before and among us.””

— Will Oldham

HAWAI'I VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, HAWAI'I, USA, December 12, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The park, along with the non-profit National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF) announced today that Will Oldham, who records and performs under the name Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, whose songs have been sung by Johnny Cash, Marianne Faithful and others, and his wife, textile artist Elsa Hansen, will both be the park’s December 2017, Artists-in-Residence. Oldham is also an actor, most recently seen in A Ghost Story, and has a brand new record of Merle Haggard songs called Best Troubador. Elsa Hansen Oldham is an acclaimed fabric artist who works with quilts and embroidery, to make janus-faced works which are unmistakably folk art and also interface philosophically and comment on the modern life.

One of America’s most eloquent enigmas, Oldham has written, sung, and performed some celebrated music for nearly 30 years, working in the past under shifting qualifications of the word Palace, like Palace Brothers, Palace Flophouse, Palace Songs or Music, but now plays as Bonnie Prince Billy, which he likes both for what it evokes & and the sound, but also because he wants the user experience to be informed by a certain intelligent awareness of what may be at stake, or isn’t, in this exchange: “It is one nom-de-guerre adopted, Bonnie Prince Billy, precisely in order to remind or inform the kids that the ‘self’ isn’t really in play here. The business demands a name, and the name ought to be confused with brand, with self, with definition of origin, and with none of the above. If and when the music becomes a part of a public awareness, the lines that bind it to earth can be considered cut and attribution issues fall away.”

Hansen Oldham, who shows her work at the Dickinson Roundell Gallery in New York, creates in stitchwork a post-mythical fantasy baseball roster where historical figures like Lincoln can co-exist in montage with minor celebrities, the famed and the tiresome, an actor with his performances, and in one work, Chinese artist and activist Ai Wei Wei with the famous, fabulous pioneer Kentuckian Daniel Boone. Stitching is a practice, something that one does, but also leads down other paths: “I think of my work as archival, memorial and play. I especially love the archival aspects of it and how it relates to other fiber art both ancient and current. I love that quilts can last for a very long time.” Though generally she works on her own, she loves that she can be part of a community and tradition of people who do their own textile work, in a communai way. Kentucky ‘impacts my work because here I am surrounded by fellow quilters and embroiderers. Some of us have a weekly quilting circle which is a lot of fun. There is also a strong embroidered quilt tradition in Kentucky called “Crazy Quilting” which is very inspiring.”

Both Will and Elsa are originally from Louisville, KY, and call it home again, returning after time spent as nomadic persons in New York and Los Angeles. Says Oldham: “I was raised in Louisville, KY. If we bust my years into rough thirds, the first third was spent in Louisville, the second third out-and-about, and this third third back in Louisville.” What does this community bring to their creative life? “Living and working here, where I’m from, helps connect present work to a lifetime of experience and emotion. There’s not a daily competitive stress that might come with life in a larger city. I’m not competing to earn my living, because living is relatively manageable here, and I’m not in competition with my community here because our goals here are varied and the rewards, locally, are not monetary or even universally desirable.”

The pair plan a joint multimedia performance at the Park, while Will plays some songs, Elsa will sit on stage and the audience will watch her stitch while video magnifies her hands and live stitching work. This is an experiment, even though Hansen Oldham feels like the repetitive movements are a certainly tonic for the mind and the body, they both are curious whether this effect translates in public performance. Says Hansen Oldham, “I was drawn to embroidery as a hobby that quickly became an obsession. “It’s very physical,” she says of stitching, “but it brings total stillness to your mind, because you don’t have to think about anything, really.” And adds Hansen Oldham: “This will be my first live stitching experience. I have previously considered embroidery to be a private art form but I am very excited to perform it publicly.”

Though this is Elsa Hansen’s first time ever in Hawai’i, Oldham has been to Hawai’i and even to the Park before. This residency is part of a process of getting to know the state which has become a fond and ongoing experience of attachment for the songwriter. Says Oldham, “I came to Hawaii for the first time with a small curiosity. From the first moments in the state, that curiosity bloomed and burgeoned. I guess I felt that I had a recognizable identity, some weird authority that let me participate in all that I was seeing and experiencing, balancing what was familiar with what was absolutely foreign. When I saw that red-white-and-blue interstate sign that signified AMERICA to me, even when nothing else I initially saw was at all familiar, I started to feel like I belonged. Even if the way that I belonged was in part in the tradition of ‘innocent’ invader, still there was a space for me.”

This sort of unique opportunity to spend a month living and working in a number of the nation’s most amazing parks was designed by NPAF to be quite the contrast to the normal day-to-day life of the musician on the road, which tends to be an endless vista of identical, dreary non-spaces like motels, vehicles, roadways, and restaurants. They are both looking forward to living and working in a real landscape. Says Oldham: “Corporate hotels are, unfortunately, threateningly non-places. Windows that do not open, doors that open only into interior hallways, absent owners. It’s mildly disturbing that modern culture workers ambivalently submit themselves to such environments. I’d like to meet someone who has learned to flesh-out time in these spaces. Culture-workers, musicians who adapt their practice to conform to the norms presented by the behind-the-scenesters are, it seems to me, giving up so much of what can allow their work to continue to flourish as compelling work.”

Oldham is also curious about the effect of an extended experience of these volcanic landcapes on his work. It’s a key part of why he wanted to apply to this particular residency. “One night, insomnia came calling and I put a Herzog volcano doc on repeat to help pass the time. It was an awesome night. The largest attractor of this residency has to do with exploring the resonance of this place for me, for my wife Elsa, and for others before and among us.”

The Couple will perform on Friday, January 26th, 2018 at 6 pm, at the Visitor Center Auditiorium at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. This event is open and free to the public. The date and location may change so please doublecheck with the Park Media Office (808-985-6018) if you plan on attending.

“As the park enters our fourth year of the Artist-in-Residence Program, we look forward to our second musician and first textile artist,” said Laura Carter Schuster, Chief of Cultural Resources at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. “Hawai‘i has such a long tradition of both music and quilting, this pair seems like a match for our location. And the park will inspire both the musician and the fabric artist alike,” she said.

The National Parks Arts Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion of the National Parks of the U.S. through creating dynamic opportunities for artworks that are based in our natural and historic heritage. This project is supported by the Friends of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Parks, and other generous benefactors. All NPAF programs are made possible through the philanthropic support of donors of all sorts ranging from corporate sponsors, small businesses, and art patrons and citizen-lovers of the parks. NPAF is always seeking new partners and donors for its wide-ranging artist-in-residence programs. If you are interested in supporting these programs, visit www.nationalparksartsfoundation.org

Former Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski to Host Book Signing

Stoney’s Rockin Country, BEST Country Bar in Las Vegas

Friday Night at Stoney’s Rockin’ Country for “Let Trump Be Trump”

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Former Trump Campaign Manager, Corey Lewandowski, and Dave Bossie, Deputy Campaign Manager, will host a book signing for their new book “Let Trump Be Trump,” Friday night December 15, 2017 at Stoney’s Rockin’ Country.

“Let Trump Be Trump” is the inside story of Trump’s presidency and the ultimate behind-the-scenes account of how Trump became President of the United States. Lewandowski states that the title of the book is what guided him through the campaign being quoted as saying, “My job was not to try and change a man who had achieved a remarkable amount of success already in his life. My job was to let Trump be Trump. It was about letting him be himself, the bold, brash, authentic nature of the candidate, the blue-collar billionaire that everyone related to.”

Chris Lowden, founder of Stoney’s Rockin’ Country, welcomes the co-authors to Las Vegas, where slightly over one year ago a highly contested presidential debate was held. “During the campaign, we held an event for the Great American PAC when the debate was here in Vegas. We are happy to continue that support by hosting Corey and David this Friday,” stated Lowden.
