More About the Artists From This Season

September 29th - Craicmore - http://www.craicmore.com/
This contemporary celtic group has deep roots in both Scotland and Ireland.  The deep, rich, contralto voice of the lead vocalist, Nancy Johnston, is something rarely found in this genre.  The four-part harmony paired with the constant driving rhythms and jig-like melodies from the wind instruments truly make this a group you don't want to miss. 

December 6th - Nutcracker, presented by the Eugene Ballet Company - http://www.eugeneballet.org/
For years, the Eugene Ballet has graced the stage of Jewett Auditorium with their stunning production of The Nutcracker.  EBC's production enhances the traditional dances of The Nutcrackerwith scenes unique to Toni Pimble’s choreographic vision. Skaters in Snow, Clara’s ride on a carousel horse, and her trip in a hot air balloon to the Land of the Sugar Plum Fairy are all part of this exclusive performance. Tchaikovsky’s glorious music, elaborate costumes and sets embellish the vibrant dancing of the soloists and corps.  A definite must see for this season.
*Don't forget!  Clara's Teaparty is still an ongoing event before the performance!  Bring your children for a wonderful pre-performance party, and feel free to dress up!  Times are at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.
