HONORS CHORUS

Students from Frederick County Public School’s 5th grade Honors Chorus grace the stage of the Weinberg Center for the Arts.  This year’s guest conductor will be Brent Talbot.  This year also marks the 31st anniversary of the FCPS Elementary Honors Chorus- an auditioned group of 5th grade students representative of the top 5% of their school’s grade enrollment.  These students rehearse on their own, with their music teachers, and with a professional conductor to prepare for this special concert.  The program represents a wide spectrum of musical genres, and showcases the remarkable talent of our elementary singers.

Pete Seeger: The Storm King

“Hauntingly moving and strikes a deep chord.” -Wellsville Daily Reporter

The greatness of folk icon Pete Seeger comes to life in this multi-media performance as GRAMMY® award-winner Jeff Haynes sets Seeger’s stories, lyrics, and voice to live music and video. Haynes and accompanying musicians explore traditions as diverse as blues, bluegrass, folk, and jazz, set against the rich tapestry of Seeger’s most engaging stories, narratives, and poems.

GRAMMY® award-winning percussionist and producer Jeff Haynes has toured with a number of acclaimed artists, including Glen Hansard, The Pat Metheny Group, Al Jarreau, Lizz Wright, Harry Belafonte, Peabo Bryson, and Cassandra Wilson, whom he toured and recorded with for nearly 20 years.

Sean Harkness (Baritone Acoustic Guitar w/pickup, Acoustic Guitar w/pickup, Fretless Electric Bass) is “a technical virtuoso whose Joe Pass/Tommy Emmanuel fingerstyle approach is always in service to telling a story or creating a feeling within the song; [Harkness] transcends many genres and can touch listeners of many backgrounds.” —Jazz Inside New York

Timothy Hill (vocals, piano, guitar) has performed with such diverse artists as John Cage, Bill Frisell, Jeff Buckley, Odetta and Pete Seeger.

Sara Milonovich (vocals, fiddle, guitar) is the front woman/founder of the indie roots-rock band Daisycutter and has also performed with Richard Shindell, Pete Seeger, The McKrells, Cathie Ryan, Eliza Gilkyson, Anne Hills, and Antje Duvekot.

Richie Stearns (banjo) has toured with Natalie Merchant, The Horse Flies, Tony Trischka, and Carrie Rodriguez.

Flying Dog Film Series

“Happy Gilmore” (1996)

Happy hour begins at 6:30pm!

Happy Gilmore wants to be a hockey player, but there’s one small detail: he can’t skate. When his grandmother’s house is foreclosed because she didn’t pay her taxes, Happy must try and find a way to make some money to help her. While at a driving range, he finds that he has hidden golf prowess, and others convince him to try pro golfing. Happy is initially reluctant, but when he learns he can make a lot of money, he gives it a try. His driving ability and goofy antics make him a crowd favorite, but tournament champion Shooter McGavin hates sharing the limelight, and tries to throw Happy out.
