Music on the Mountain
September 16, 2017
Spokane Symphony returns Saturday, September 16, to fill Chewelah Peak Learning Center with great music. It will be the 15th annual Music on the Mountain concert there.
“This is one of our area’s most popular arts events, so we’re excited to have the Symphony back at the Peak,” said Kay Comer-Lupton, CAG president. “The concert draws music lovers from all over Stevens County and beyond.”
Comer-Lupton said this year’s concert has financial support from a new contributor, the Vinson Foundation of Colville. “The Arts Guild is so grateful for all the business firms and individuals who contribute to Music on the Mountain,” she said. “We couldn’t do it without their support, because ticket sales cover less than 40% of the costs.”
Tickets for the 2:00 pm concert will go on sale August 14 at Valley Drug Co. and Akers United Drug in Chewelah, House of Music in Colville, and online at www.chewelahartsguild.org
The “early-bird” price of an adult ticket is $20 through August 31. Tickets after that date are $25, still a bargain for a Spokane Symphony performance. Tickets for children 12 and under are $15.
The orchestra will be conducted by Jorge Luis Uzcategui, the symphony’s young assistant conductor who will be conducting his third MOM program.
In the Spotlight…
Chewelah Arts Guild Pecha Kucha
You can learn a lot about art in six minutes forty seconds. Twenty slides worth, in fact, say organizers of a new event coming to Chewelah this September. Pecha Kucha started in Japan as a way for designers to share their work with others. The Chewelah Arts Guild is adopting this speedy presentation format, so that viewers can get a taste of local artists’ work. Presenters include Ellen Breiter (pastels), Chris Lehwalder (painting), Tim Nielsen (jewelry), Margo Sety (watercolors), Ed Broberg (photography) and Light Up the Park (community art event).
Each artist or group will share 20 slides about their art or event in less than seven minutes. Sponsored by Chewelah Arts Guild and the Independent, Bud Evans inspired this presentation after having attended, at Pecha Kucha event at a dental convention. Evans searched around and found the closest Pecha Kucha event in Ellensburg, Washington. He wanted to bring the concept to Chewelah. The fast pace allows for interest to build around art while providing exposure to many different artists in one evening. This free event will be offered September 20 at 7 pm at Quartzite Brewery.
