This class is all about oil paint and using it to express what you observe. Although some experience in drawing or painting would be helpful, it is not necessary. We will aim to paint a study each class. A study is not necessarily a finished painting but a wonderful (less pressured) learning tool. You will learn about color mixing, observation, applying paint, creating form, making edges, depicting space and conveying the light. You might even begin a love affair with oil paint. Basic supplies will be included but you may bring your own in addition.* No class 11/29

in the Studio 194 Theatre
All Ages!
Tickets:  Adult $15.00; CAC Member & Seniors (62+) $12.00
Children 12 & under $10.00

At the age of 20, Tyler Bartram has been described as an "excellent up-and-coming modern jazz player". His approach to the guitar is unique, including a wide range of influences from John Coltrane and Wes Montgomery to Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck. 

 

Bartram was given his first guitar at the age of 12, and immediately started performing with rock and pop groups in the Maryland area. At his young age, he has led many ensembles and groups, including a small jazz ensemble at Howard Community College and his high school choir band and pit band during his time there. His musical studies have involved great teachers, including Scott Goriup and Baltimore local Carl Filipiak; both of whom Bartram was able to perform with many times.  He received a scholarship to the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland, where he currently studies with jazz guitar legend Paul Bollenback. 

 

Tyler has performed and or studied with many premier artists, including Alex Norris, Mike Clark, Michael Formanek, Mike Stern, Pat Martino, Warren Wolf, Gary Thomas and Oz Noy. He was noticed especially by Dweezil Zappa (son of musician Frank), who invited Tyler to attend and play at his camp in 2013. He currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland.

Shenandoah Run

Shenandoah Run

Studio 194 Theatre

Doors 7:00pm | Show 7:30pm

Tickets: $20.00 Adults

$18.00 CAC Member & Seniors ( 62+)

Military $19.00

Children ( 12 & under) $10.00

Shenandoah Run is a nine-member classic and contemporary folk group and we have been performing in the Washington, DC area for three years. Each of the group’s members hails from Maryland or Virginia and their individual musicality, vocal and instrumental talent, as well as a strong desire to keep folk music alive and fresh, is key to the group’s success. Shenandoah Run blends vintage and contemporary folk music in a manner that appeals to all listeners.

We present the songs and sounds of American folk music, with an occasional infusion of songs from other lands and from the worlds of country and bluegrass. From the esoteric to the toe-tappingly familiar, our songs are treated to a lush vocal harmony and skillful instrumental backing that defines what is becoming our instantly recognizable sound. We present arrangements that are fresh, varied, and unique, while keeping with the spirit of the folk-music sound and we deliver it all with a chemistry that delights both audiences and we, the performers.

Shenandoah Run has released its first full-length CD entitled “Winter To Spring”. It is a compilation of classic and new folk songs, including an original song written by one of the group members and the CD has been met with great interest and sales are doing well.

We have performed at a variety of venues, including some of the most prominent, such as the Washington National Folk Festival, Maryland Hall for the Performing Arts, the Avalon Theatre and Jammin Java. We have done so well at these venues that we are invited back multiple times. Every Shenandoah Run performance to-date has either been a sell-out or played to a capacity audience. We have entertained audiences of all ages and have developed a fan base that is constantly growing. In addition, we have performed for a number of community concert venues, including Vienna, Falls Church (twice), Annapolis (three times) and Fairfax County, to name a few.

Jazz on Sundays: Kristin Callahan

The Chesapeake Arts Center Presents:

Jazz on Sundays with Kristin Callahan

Sunday, December 21, 2014

Adults $15.00

Everyone in the jazz scene today who has heard Kristin Callahan is in agreement--her voice is fresh, vibrant, and one to watch in the years to come. Kristin has that rare ability to coax listeners into the anticipation of each note, enticing people into the very soul of the music. Quiet and unassuming, Callahan has a stage presence that is both sweet and sexy, one that catches everyone off guard and then keeps them there until the very last note. From her lovely smiles between songs to her flawless execution of some of the most demanding pieces, Kristin exudes the perfect combination of country charm and urbane hipness.

Kristin has been singing since she could speak, and she was fortunate to have her church and school community recognize her talent and encourage her to develop it over the years. As a young artist, she received a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music summer program. In the decade since, Kristin has been actively performing, being featured on many electronic artists’ albums in the DC/Baltimore area and performing throughout the region. She spent many years exploring different genres, until she discovered a love for jazz. In 2009, while recording her first album, “A New Love”, she met Vince Evans, prolific teacher and pianist, and began to study under him. Evans’ mentorship has continued to be an inspiration to Kristin.

Today, Kristin is fully focused on her art, mesmerizing listeners with a contribution to jazz that is entirely her own. She has been recording and performing with several accomplished musicians, and has just completed her second album, “One Magic Day,” which includes many phenomenal musicians, such as the remarkable vibraphonist Warren Wolf, as well as Eric Wheeler, JC Jefferson Jr. and Vince Evans.
