Arts Calendar 

  • Although the arts are best experienced up close and personal, the spread of Covid-19 has required people to stay at a safe distance from others. Adapting to this new reality has many arts businesses expanding their digital foot print.
  • Now, we’ve assembled a new resource to highlight the virtual activities that our members are producing. Please page through the latest version of the Calendar Launch Pad on the right.

The Arts Calendar, the go-to resource for arts and culture events in the three county region, is produced by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council. Below on this page is a digital version of the calendar.

    Gnossiennes
    Simone Dinnerstein’s breakthrough 2007 recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations introduced the concert world to a strikingly original artist, one whose aesthetic is both deeply rooted in the score and profoundly idiosyncratic. Her interpretive powers are at play in a program by turns lilting, beguiling, danceable, and reflective, where the urgency of Philip Glass’s Mad Rush and Couperin’s jaunty Tic Toc Choc complement the pensive introspection of Satie’s Gnossienes No. 3 and Schumann’s vivid Kreisleriana. “Ultimately, it is Dinnerstein’s unreserved identification with every note she plays that makes her performance so spellbinding” (Washington Post). $30 general public, $6 student and youth

As Pat Metheny Side-Eye, the three revel in the guitar legend’s emblematic style—loose and flexible articulation blended with an advanced rhythmic and harmonic sensibility. $35 general public, $6 student and youth

Works by Carolyn Shaw, Ayanna Woods, Phillip Glass, and Bryce Dessner are also featured. $30 general public, $6 student and youth

    “The Mozart Experience” is the second of two programs created and performed by the Magic Circle Mime Co. for the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center. A mischievous street musician finds herself thrust into the role of Mozart in this concert program for chamber orchestra. Presented by the conductor with opportunities and dilemmas similar to those faced by Mozart, the street musician slowly evolves into a modern-day Mozart. From extravagant youth to the appearance of the apocalyptic “mysterious stranger,” the audience experiences Mozart’s life as a musical, human adventure.

    Share the genius of Mozart and inspire the children in your life! The perfect introduction to some of the most perfect music ever composed: “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” Symphony No. 40, “The Magic Flute” and more.

    When Joey Alexander made his New York debut at the age of ten, Wynton Marsalis declared: “There has never been anyone…who could play like that at his age.” Now an August 17, he has broken through the expectations and limits of the prodigy and is simply one of the most thrilling pianist-composers on today’s jazz stage. Blessed with astonishing emotional depth and limitless technique, he evinces a knack for memorable, enticing tunefulness and free-form spontaneity. With his personalized interpretations of the greats and abundant, original composition, Joey Alexander stakes his claim to the spotlight. $27 general public, $6 student and youth

    When Ranky Tanky plays “Stand By Me,” it becomes “a funky-bottomed churchy plea that crossed the aisle and ran down to the cabaret to become a wailing call to worship that works in both venues” (No Depression: The Journal of Roots Music). Playful game songs, ecstatic shouts, heartbreaking spirituals—Ranky Tanky rejuvenates the timeless music of the Gullah culture from the southeastern Sea Islands in a mix of low country traditions with large doses of jazz, blues, gospel, funk, and R&B. It’s “distinctly American, with African roots showing in plain view…relentlessly upbeat and infectious” (JazzTimes). $27 general public, $6 student and youth

    Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain By defying the boundaries of the conventional ensemble, the musical deviants who make up the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain have become a worldwide phenomenon. Their hilarious and adept code-switching of musical idioms in innovative transmogrifications of classical, jazz, rock, and film music carefully avoids the pit of gimmicks in its quest to redefine the instrument. Providing their own vocal accompaniment, the Ukulele Orchestra’s trove of musical know-how layers each performance with authenticity and daring imagination while reinventing fun in sonic language, all from instruments that are ‘small enough to be hand luggage.’ $30 general public, $6 student and youth
