YOUNG ARTISTS ENSEMBLE presents

The 37th ANNUAL TEEN SUMMER MUSICAL: GREASE


Book, Music and Lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey
Originally Produced by Robert Stigwood
Musical Direction by Zachary Spencer
Conducted by Susan Treworgy-Calkins
Choreographed by Miriam Durrie-Kirsch

Directed by Devery Holmes

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Young Artists Ensemble presents its Teen Summer Musical production of GREASE directed by Devery Holmes. Performances are July 28 through August 6, 2017, Wednesday, Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2:00 at Newbury Park High School Performing Arts Center, 456 N. Reino Road in Newbury Park, CA 91320.
Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin'”, “It’s Raining on Prom Night”, “Alone at the Drive-In Movie” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.
Director Devery Holmes is a veteran director for the Conejo Players, helming 11 musicals and plays since 1988. “It was very moving getting to know the cast as they shared personal stories of life and high school angst,” said Holmes. “Because of their friendships and the YAE experience, they talked about not being alone in this journey feeling that together they can get through anything. When they sing “We Go Together” there is such camaraderie and joy… it doesn’t get better!” Also a singer, dancer and actor, Devery is currently performing in the Conejo Players production of HAIRSPRAY. Devery’s connection to YAE is through her son, A.J. Holmes, a YAE Alumni who performed in past shows including GUYS AND DOLLS and CITY OF ANGELS and more recently has performed the role of Elder Cunningham in THE BOOK OF MORMON, on Broadway and in London and Australia.

WHAT:
The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be rebellious, provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still get make demure Sandy his girl?

CLASSICAL CONCERTS ON THE HILL PRESENTS THE LUMINOSO PIANO QUARTET IN AN AFTERNOON OF CHAMBER MUSIC

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – The Luminoso Piano Quartet will present AN AFTERNOON OF CHAMBER MUSIC: Mozart, Mahler, Shostakovich and more, on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 2:00 pm at the Hillcrest Center for the Arts, located at 403 W. Hillcrest Dr. in Thousand Oaks.  The afternoon features classical favorites performed in an intimate setting.  A concert in the Large Rehearsal Room is like attending a Concert in the Vienna State Opera! (Well, it has mirrors but there’s no marble staircases, so just close your eyes and imagine you are there!)
The Luminoso Piano Quartet features Araksia Nazlikyan, Violin; Diana Ray-Goodman, Violin & Viola; Jan Kelley, Cello; and Ornela Ervin, Piano.

The Luminoso Piano Quartet is led by Violist Diana Ray-Goodman, who maintains a private violin and viola studio in Thousand Oaks.  “We are excited about this program!” says Ray-Goodman.   “The quartet by Mahler is such passionate music – we wish that he would have written more chamber music like this piece. We enjoy presenting a variety of styles of music – we are including the Baroque music of LeClair & I enjoyed arranging Kreisler’s Liebesfreud.”  She received her BA in Music from CSU Northridge and worked on her Master’s degree with William Magers at Arizona State University.  She has played in several orchestras including the Phoenix and Santa Barbara Symphonies and the Thousand Oaks Philharmonic.  She is a Member and Evaluator for the Music Teachers’ Association of California.  A member of the music faculty at CSUCI, she is also a Registered Teacher with the Suzuki Association of the Americas and a Member of the American String Teachers’ Association.

The quartet also includes Araksia Nazlikian, who began her violin studies at age of 7 in Erevan, Armenia.  Presently living in LA, she has played in various orchestras, including the Monterey Symphony, San Luis Obispo Opera, and the Fresno & Thousand Oaks Philharmonic orchestras.  Jan Kelley, Cello, grew up in Wyoming, received most of her musical education at the National Music Camp at Interlochen, Michigan, and then received a B.A. from Carleton College in Minnesota.  Over the years she has played concerts with most of the orchestras from Santa Barbara to San Diego, including a world tour in 1967 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta.  Albanian pianist Ornela Ervin received her artist diploma from the Academy of Fine Arts in Tirana, Albania. Upon graduation she moved to United States and currently resides in Thousand Oaks where she maintains a large studio of award winning students and performs regularly with her piano duet partner Raya Sadigursky.
