Celebrating Youth Art Month

In celebration of Youth Art Month, the Lincoln Center Art Gallery will present the Poudre School District Youth Art Exhibition. This colorful and diverse exhibit showcases the variety of artworks produced by children from kindergarten through 12th grade in Poudre Schools. We are proud to display the talent, creativity and critical skills that are nourished through visual arts programs. PSD is rich in the variety of media that our youth are exposed to across the district. Many schools offer not only two-dimensional techniques as in drawing, painting, printmaking and photography, but also offer three-dimensional programs in sculpture, pottery and jewelry, and even new media as seen in video and digital artworks. Examples of student work in all areas will be represented in the exhibition.

The student artwork will be on display beginning March 10th through April 7th. The public is invited to a reception for the artists on Wednesday, March 28th, 4-6 p.m.

Admission is always free. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturdays noon to 6 p.m., and evenings of performances.

Neither Strait-laced Nor Straight-faced

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs… think again! Straight No Chaser, here for four performances March 29 - 31, is neither strait-laced nor straight-faced. As original member Randy Stine comments, “We take the music very seriously; we just don’t take ourselves too seriously.” In the process, this 10-member group is reinventing the idea of a cappella on the modern pop landscape.

Originally formed over a dozen years ago while students together at Indiana University, the group has reassembled with a massive fanbase, over 20 million views on YouTube, numerous national TV appearances, and three albums. In an era when so much pop music is the product of digital processing, Straight No Chaser is the real deal – the sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music with a sense of humor.

Stine explains that the prevailing goal is to find the right "twists" without losing the identifiable character of the songs. "You have to figure out a way to make things familiar yet different," he says. "You want to find what people love about the song and carry it over so it's not too shocking to the ear and still has that known melody that people like. It's tricky, but it's a lot of fun, too."

Hot Fun in the Summertime

Summertime in Fort Collins just got hotter as Swallow Hill Music and the Lincoln Center present k.d. lang along with her new band the Siss Boom Bang on August 5th.

k.d. certainly needs no introduction. She has been rockin' for 25 years, has won four Grammy Awards, and eight Juno Awards in her native Canada. She launched her career with a blend of country-rock stylings and playfully punk-like attitude, putting the alternative in alt-country.

Her most recent album, Sing it Loud, is lang's first record made entirely with a band of her own since the pair of albums with the Reclines that launched her career. She says, "I love going where I'm not supposed to go. I love being the underdog. I've always loved being the underdog. I love feeling like I'm starting at square zero again. I thrive on it...I would have to say that Sing it Loud is actually probably the pinnacle of my creative life because it happened so fast, so naturally, and with so much joy."

Brahms' "Human Requiem"

Join the Larimer Chorale as they present Ein deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms on Sunday, March 25. Few pieces in the choral/orchestral repertoire are as powerful and stirring as Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem, which translates to: A German Requiem. Although a requiem signifies a “mass for the dead”, Brahms’ sublime composition does not use the traditional Latin requiem text. Instead Brahms selected texts from the Old and New Testaments and the Apocrypha. His intent was to capture a universal human experience and assuage the sorrow of the living, rather than the souls of the dead. Brahms' himself explained that "German" referred only to the language in which the composition was to be sung; he would have gladly called it A Human Requiem. The Larimer Chorale, conducted by Dr. Michael Todd Krueger, will perform with a full orchestra and two soloists, Emily Martin, soprano, and Larry Hensel, baritone.
