"American Portraits"
Jonathan Levin, a concert pianist from New York City, will team up with his long-time friend and Bellingham native Angelo Rondello, to present a collection of their most personal selections, or “portraits” of America. “The program has a little bit of everything,” Rondello explains. “Melodies and works which everyone will recognize and enjoy, and music never heard by many, which will perhaps be a revelation to audiences.” Most of the music Levin will play was either written or adapted by him. “I started creating my own arrangements and re-imaginings of various American standards,” he explains. “Each composition or arrangement is in some way inspired by people or experiences I’ve had over the years.” The concert includes Levin’s virtuosic arrangements of popular American Songbook tunes, as well as spirituals and folk melodies. Rondello will be performing the popular “Adagio” from “Spartacus” by Khachaturian, arranged by Matthew Cameron, a former classmate of the two performers. Russian-American composer Vladimir Drozdoff’s haunting musical tribute to Chopin will also be heard, and the evening will end with the incomparable American classic, “Rhapsody in Blue.” Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased through brownpapertickets.com or at venue one hour prior to concert. Thanks to our Corporate sponsor RE/MAX and private sponsor Garland Richmond

Don't miss "I and You" by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Sean Walbeck, July 20 to 30, with shows at 7:30 pm Thursdays through Saturdays, and at 2:00 pm Sundays. Note: Adult language and situations. One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline’s door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s "Leaves of Grass," an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. I and You is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.
