FLC Symphonic Band Love and Loss
7:00pm / Community Concert Hall at FLC
This program centers around themes of loss, love, and betrayal. We'll open with a bacchanalian dance that represents the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, which lead to the destruction of Pompeii. From there, we will move to a new pop-influenced piece written to represent a romantic betrayal. We'll follow that with an uncommon march dedicated to Theodore Roosevelt after he lost his son during World War I, and we'll conclude our program with the well loved First Suite in E-flat by Gustav Holst. With works from Ticheli, Sousa, Dunton, and more, this program is sure to be an emotional journey.   This performance is FREE for current FLC Students and guests who are 18 & under.   FLC students must present their current College ID at the venue door to gain entrance. (1 seat per FLC ID)
SOLD OUT An Evening with Keller Williams
8:00pm / Animas City Theatre
Virginian, Keller Williams, released his first album in 1994, FREEK, and has since given each of his albums a single syllable title: BUZZ, SPUN, BREATHE, LOOP, LAUGH, HOME, DANCE, STAGE, GRASS, DREAM, TWELVE, LIVE, ODD, THIEF, KIDS, BASS, PICK, FUNK, VAPE, SYNC, RAW, SANS, ADD, SPEED and CELL. Each title serves as a concise summation of the concept guiding each project. Keller's albums reflect his pursuit to create music that sounds like nothing else. Un-beholden to conventionalism, he seamlessly crosses genre boundaries. The end product is music that encompasses rock, jazz, funk and bluegrass, and always keeps the audience on their feet. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. For most of his career he has performed solo. His stage shows are rooted around Keller singing his compositions and choice cover songs, while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, bass, guitar synthesizer and drum samples; a technique called live phrase sampling or "looping". The end result often leans toward a hybrid of alternative folk and groovy electronica, a genre Keller jokingly calls "acoustic dance music" or ADM." Keller's constant evolution has led to numerous band projects as well; Keller & The Keels, Grateful Grass, KWahtro, Keller and the Travelin' McCourys, Grateful Gospel and More Than A Little to name a few. Keller can be found playing clubs and festivals around the U.S. with these projects throughout the year.
