2018-19 Season

The Boogie Woogie Kid from Detroit will have you dancing in the aisles as he plays a mix of boogie woogie, swing, gospel, jazz – even a touch of classical! This concert begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday, October 14, 2018, at Wallace High School Commons, #1 Miners Alley. Admission by SCCCA membership (available at the door) or $15/adult at the door; students are our guests always. Matthew Ball has had an interesting journey from musician to attorney and back to musician. He has performed in 10 states and will be performing in the Seattle area a few days prior to this concert. He tells us if the piano has keys that work, he can play it! During this concert, students from the Joni Damiano Bartel Dance & Performing Arts Studio, Osburn, will join Matt during “In the Mood”. On the following 2 days, he will give performances to all the students in the Wallace and Mullan School Districts, and to the students in Kellogg Sr HS and Kellogg Middle School (a project sponsored by SCCCA and our members).

The High Country Cowboys will bring music familiar to fans of the Sons of the Pioneers and of Marty Robbins to Kellogg Sr High School, #2 Jacobs Gulch Rd, at 7:00 pm on Tuesday evening, November 13, 2018. This trio of brothers – John, Marty, and Joe Kosel – are from Red Lodge, MT, and perform extensively throughout Montana. Kellogg is their first performance in Idaho; however several of our members have seen their performances and recommended them. They play guitar and bass, sing, and yodel. Their concert will be preceded by a performance for the students of the Mullan School District, sponsored by SCCCA and our members. Admission by SCCCA membership (available at the door) or $15/adult at the door.

Spring will begin with the Rice Brothers in Concert at 2:00 pm Sunday, March 17, 2019, at Kellogg Sr High School, #2 Jacobs Gulch Rd. John and Chris Rice each play the piano and cello, in varying combinations, including 4-hand piano. They play gospel, jazz, and very approachable, lively classical music, notably that by Polish composers Chopin and Liszt. They are from Phoenix, Arizona, and have toured in the US and in Europe, especially in Poland. Admission by SCCCA membership (available at the door) or $15/adult at the door. The following day they will perform for the students of Kellogg Sr HS and Kellogg Middle School, sponsored by SCCCA and our members.

Tango Volcado had been scheduled but an artist’s family emergency required them to cancel. Their bass player organized a replacement concert by the BRENT EDSTROM TRIO WITH HEATHER VILLA. They performed on Sunday, April 7, 2019, 2:00 pm, at the United Church of Christ Congregational, 408 Cedar Street, Wallace. Performers were pianist Brent Edstrom, bass player Eugene Jablonsky, trumpeter Moe, and vocalist Heather Villa. Selections were music of the 1940’s.
(Notes: we don’t have a picture of this foursome but the concert program has a picture of each individual. Let me know if you wish this program sent to you.)

Those planning to purchase a single admission to a spring 2019 concert may wish to purchase a 2019-2020 SCCCA Membership, thereby gaining admission also to those 4 subscription concerts.

Spring will conclude with a public concert – no admission fee for anyone – by Pianist Wan-Chi Su and Cellist Evan Drachman from the Piatigorsky Foundation of New York. This concert will be at Kellogg Sr High School, #2 Jacobs Gulch Road in Kellogg, at 2 pm on Sunday April 28, 2019. Ms. Su has toured extensively through Asia, Europe and the US, especially along the east coast. Mr. Drachman has performed twice for SCCCA, each time with a different pianist. He is the grandson of Gregor Piatigorsky, namesake of the Foundation. Regular attendees will recall his interesting descriptions of the music being performed. This is a recital-length event, ending about 3:15 pm. School Outreaches are currently being planned.

The Piatigorsky Foundation’s mission is to make live classical music a part of the fabric of everyday life for underserved communities throughout the United States.
