  The Academy Presents: Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn *SOLD OUT SHOW*   Tickets for this event will be released to members October 3 - 10, 2018. Remaining tickets will be released to the public on October 11, 2018.     Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste Magazine), have a musical partnership like no other. Béla Fleck is a fifteen-time Grammy Award winner who has taken the instrument across multiple genres, and Abigail Washburn a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who re-radicalized it by combining it with Far East culture and sounds. The two met at a square dance, began collaborating musically and eventually fell in love. Over the years, they played together most visibly in the Sparrow Quartet alongside Ben Sollee and Casey Driessen and informally at a pickin’ party here, a benefit there, or occasionally popping up in each other’s solo shows. Fans of tradition-tweaking acoustic fare eagerly anticipated that Béla & Abigail would begin making music together as a duo.   Fleck has the virtuosic, jazz-to-classical ingenuity of an iconic instrumentalist and composer with bluegrass roots. His collaborations range from his ground-breaking standard-setting ensemble Béla Fleck and the Flecktones to…

  Community Through Theatre Presents: Follies Book by James Goldman Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim Produced Originally on Broadway by Harold Prince Orchestration by Jonathan Tunick   Tickets for this event will be released in February.     A true theatrical event, this legendary masterpiece is considered by many to be the greatest musical ever created. Surreal, sophisticated, compelling, heart wrenching and epic in scope, Follies by musical theatre legend, Stephen Sondheim, and author, James Goldman, uses the musical theatre as a metaphor for the collapse of American innocence and naiveté in the post-Kennedy years. In Follies, the time is 1971, and theatrical impresario, Dimitri Weissmann, hosts a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, setting the stage for a parade of brilliant pastiche numbers, including "Losing My Mind," "I'm Still Here" and "Broadway Baby." Amid the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present, coming face-to-face with the future.   Performance Dates: Friday, May 10, 2019: 7:30 PM Saturday, May 11, 2019: 7:30 PM Sunday, May 12, 2019: 2:00 PM Friday, May 17, 2019: 7:30 PM Saturday, May 18, 2019: 7:30 PM Sunday, May 19, 2019: 2:00 PM     Tickets: Student:…
