The 2014-15 concert season begins with a Public Concert on the Lawn of the Northern Pacific Depot Museum, 219 Sixth Street, Wallace. Bring your neighbors and houseguests on Sunday September 7, 2014. Concert will start at 2:00 pm (earlier time is for this concert only). Concert free to the public.
Music will be by local musicians playing guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, maybe more – and maybe a few stories. Music will be familiar old tunes and compositions by the musicians. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets. In case of rain, the concert will move into the 6th Street Theatre.
This is a collaborative event between SCCCA, the Depot Museum, and a network of musicians, with backup by 6th Street Theater. It is our first-ever outdoor concert.

You will never think of the violin the same way again. This isn’t a concert about one style of music. Instead, this show is about what is possible on an instrument that you think you know, but you’ve never seen anything like this.
A fun, engaging performer, with some great stories from a career that spans the globe, Castle is both unique and uniquely entertaining.

Making his first appearance with Opera CDA, Joshua Vander Plaats, bass, is known for his uniquely low range and dark timbre. A native of Sioux Center, Iowa, Joshua recently graduated with a degree in vocal performance from the University of Idaho, where he studied under Dr. Kyle Ferrill. Joshua recently made his second appearance at the Bay View Music Festival, where he performed the role of Don Alfonzo in Mozart’s Così fan tutte. He previously attended Bay View in 2012, when he performed the role of Il Commendatore in Don Giovanni. In 2013 Joshua attended Sonoma Bach Festival’s choral workshop, “Chanticleer in Sonoma,” where he worked directly with members of the Grammy-Award-winning ensemble. He has also received the honor of being selected as a finalist for Chanticleer. Joshua recently made his professional debut performing the roles of Masetto and Il Commendatore for the Washington-Idaho Symphony Orchestra’s production of Don Giovanni. His other recent roles include Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, Bartolo in The Marriage of Figaro, Baron Zeta in The Merry Widow, and Grandpa Moss in The Tender Land.
Coach-accompanist Mary Trotter is praised for her lyrical, expressive sound and is a sought-after collaborative artist. Equally at home with operatic and concert repertoire, she has served as staff pianist at both Whitworth and Gonzaga Universities. In 2012, she was the harpsichordist for the Peabody Conservatory’s production of Don Giovanni, presented in conjunction with Lyric Opera Baltimore. In 2011, she was music director and accompanist for Peabody Opera Outreach’s world premiere of Ariel’s Tempest by Dr. Douglas Buchanan.
Originally from Snohomish, WA, Mary received her Bachelor of Arts in Music (Piano Performance and Pedagogy) from Whitworth University and her Masters of Music in Vocal Accompanying from the Peabody Conservatory. She currently serves as adjunct professor and staff accompanist at Whitworth University.
This production is a pastiche—rock musicians might call it a mash-up—of bits of many compositions to tell a new story. It includes sections of music from modern productions (“Porgy and Bess”, “Susannah”) and traditional operas (“Faust”, “The Marriage of Figaro”, “The Barber of Seville”, even the “Ring Cycle”). It will also be a sing-spiel, a mix of narration (to help you keep up with the crazy plot-turns) and song.
