Press Room

Japanese American Exclusion Film Screening & Discussion at BPL Feb. 27

Japanese American Exclusion Film Talks
Saturday, February 27 @ 7:30 p.m.
at Kitsap Regional Library, Bainbridge Island Branch

In advance of BPA’s March presentation of SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS, the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community (BIJAC) presents three short films – The Red Pines, The Woman Behind the Symbol, and Visible Target – relating to the Japanese American exclusion experience on Bainbridge Island.

The Red Pines explores the cultural forces that enabled many of the Island’s Japanese American community to return and rebuild their lives after exile and incarceration by their own government during World War II. The Woman Behind the Symbol highlights the story of 31-year-old Islander Fumiko Hayashida, a Japanese American mother whose photograph by a Seattle Post-Intelligencer photographer has since become an iconic symbol of the internment experience. Visible Target is a documentary that tells us: “It is a part of history almost too painful to talk about, yet impossible to forget.”

This free community presentation will be held Friday, February 27 at 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Bainbridge Public Library, 1270 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island. The screening will be followed by discussions facilitated by BIJAC members. Additional information is available through Bainbridge Public Library at 206.842.4162 and through the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community at www.bijac.org.

BPA’s outreach programs for SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS are supported in part by a grant from Humanities Washington, a state-wide non-profit organization supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the State of Washington, and contributions from individuals and foundations. SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS is supported in part by a grant from the Washington State Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, and our generous sponsor is The Maggi Rogers Fund.

Island Theatre Play Reading Feb. 21 & 22 at Bainbridge Public Library

Dear Editor: A Play Reading of Letters to the Bainbridge Review
Saturday, February 21 & Sunday, February 22 @ 7:30 p.m.
at Kitsap Regional Library, Bainbridge Island Branch

In advance of BPA’s March presentation of SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS, Island Theatre presents a dramatic reading of selected letters to the Bainbridge Review from the 1940’s through the 1970’s to illustrate the role of a local paper in community life.

Dear Editor was originally produced by Island Theatre as part of the 2004 Bainbridge Island Humanities Inquiry, “Breaking News: The State of Today’s Information Media.” The playreading includes letters on such vital – and reoccurring – Bainbridge issues as dogs in Winslow, what to do about newcomers, rowdy teenagers, all-island government and, of course, the ferries. Central to the play, however, are letters for and against the exclusion of Bainbridge Island’s Japanese residents during World War II as well as letters for and against their return to the island at the end of the war.

Dear Editor is directed by Diane Bankart and features Island Theatre board members as readers.

Performances for this free community event are Saturday, February 21 and Sunday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bainbridge Public Library, 1270 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island. Additional information is available through Bainbridge Public Library at 206.842.4162. Further information is at Island Theater at 206.842.0985 or www.IslandTheatre.org

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra presents Raise the Roof! February 28 & March 1

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra (BSO) presents Raise the Roof!
Saturday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m. & Sunday, March 1 @ 3:00 p.m.
At Bainbridge Performing Arts

This special Bainbride Symphony Orchestra program is one of celebration, community, and the American spirit. Through the generous support of the Fletcher Bay Foundation the BSO showcases its brand new set of timpani in American composer Michael Daugherty’s thrilling concerto, Raise the Roof! performed by Gunnar Folsom. Kevin Puts won the Pulitzer Prize in 2010, and his work for orchestra, Millennium Canons, has its BSO debut in this winter concert, which also features the Introduction to Also sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss, Down a Country Lane and Variations on a Shaker Melody by Aaron Copland, and Antonín Dvořák’s American Suite, op. 98b. Closing the performance in grand fashion is Beethoven’s Chorale Fantasy featuring the BSO, Mark Salman on piano, and the Amabile Choir with Director Anne Pell. Singing of strength, unity and joy this masterpiece is the perfect end to this unique program.

Gunnar Folsom is one of the Pacific Northwest’s most in-demand percussionists. A connoisseur of a wide range of styles and genres including symphonic music, musical theater, contemporary chamber music, R&B, and jazz, Gunnar has performed as a freelance percussionist with such luminaries as Patti Austin, David Benoit, Sheena Easton, Marvin Hamlisch, James Ingrahm, Al Jarreau, Melissa Manchester, Doc Severinsen, the Smothers Brothers, the Three Irish Tenors, and Allen Toussaint.

Hailed as a “heroic virtuoso,” and “a dazzling performer,” Mark Salman’s performances have been described as “powerful,” “astonishing, exacting and evocative,” “dramatic,” “wildly imaginative” and “touchingly lyrical.” Of his performance of Beethoven's Hammerklavier sonata one authority stated, “there are probably only five or six pianists in the world who can play [it] as perfectly.” His performance of Liszt’s transcription of the Beethoven Seventh Symphony was named one of three “Performances of the Year” by the Seattle Weekly.

The Amabile Choir is a group of 50 singers who seeks to inspire singers and audience members by performing choral music with love and joyful intention, enriching lives through musical excellence. Founder Anne Pell is also the Director of Side by Side, Schola Nova, and Compline Choir, and the creator of the “For Our Children” benefit concerts performed locally each fall. She served as the accompanist for the Bainbridge Chorale for 14 years and has been composing, arranging and interpreting music for many years. She is a full-time private piano instructor specializing in jazz, blues, and classical music, composition, theory, and jazz ensembles. Her original works include choral compositions, liturgical chants and hymns, piano duets, jazz tunes, and more.

Music Director of the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Festival Orchestra and the Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra, Maestro Wesley Schulz has been lauded by musicians for his “intensity and emotion” in performances and for his “approachable and inspiring” leadership. Last fall, he also assumed the new post of Conducting Fellow at the Seattle Symphony with Music Director Ludovic Morlot. Passionate about this program, Wesley says, “This music brings together an army of musicians (orchestra, pianist, and chorus) in unity and strength. Bainbridge Island is an incredible place to make music, and this program is our gift to you.”

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra performs at Bainbridge Performing Arts on Saturday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 1 at 3:00 p.m. A special pre-concert chat will be held on Sunday at 2:15 p.m. Tickets, $19 for adults, and $16 for seniors, students, military, and teachers may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206.842.8569 or in person at Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA), 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island. Under BPA’s Youth in Music Initiative generously sponsored by Wicklund Dental, each youth receives free admission when accompanied by a paying adult. BPA Box Office hours are 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and one hour prior to each performance.

Bainbridge Performing Arts extends additional thanks to Fletcher Bay Foundation, who also funded music acquisition for the season. BPA is supported, in part, by Bainbridge Community Foundation and One Call for All.

Tony Award-winning musical filled with sublime music and heartfelt comedy opens February 13

Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents
SIDE BY SIDE BY SONDHEIM
February 13 – 22: Fridays & Saturdays @ 7:30 p.m. + Sundays @ 3:00 p.m.

Don’t miss SIDE BY SIDE BY SONDHEIM, the Tony Award-winning musical opening at Bainbridge Performing Arts in mid February. The sophistication, wit, insight, heart and genius of Broadway’s most innovative and influential artist are at the center of this tribute to composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim. Enjoy a dazzling array of some of Sondheim’s best-known songs featuring numbers from landmark shows that revolutionized the musical theatre with their masterful craft and astounding creativity.

While conceived as a fundraiser for a small theater company to display both the talents of three performers and the music of Sondheim, BPA’s version of the production showcases a larger cast and places the show squarely in context – an engagement party for a young couple. Director / Musical Director Josh Anderson says “Sondheim regularly wrestles with the ideas of love, marriage, and aging, and in this new context, his brilliance shines. Die-hard fans and novices alike will find a new understanding of this classic material.”

Leading a stellar cast, including Kylee Gano, Jasmine Joshua, Emily Kight, Barbara Hume, Paula Elliot, Dan Engelhard, Mike Loudon, James Sgambati, and Brian Pucheu, Anderson is thrilled to bring the production to Bainbridge, saying, “Sondheim is the unrivaled master of lyrical wit and musical wisdom and in this new presentation of his material, Sondheim’s guiding themes of love, marriage, aging, and the artistic process are superbly illustrated.” He continues, “BPA audience members have come to expect sublime music and heartfelt comedy, and in this show, they will get both and then some!”

SIDE BY SIDE BY SONDHEIM appears at BPA February 13 – 22, with shows Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. plus Sundays at 3:00 p.m. A special Pay-What-You-Can Preview will be held Thursday, February 12 at7:30 p.m., and the Opening Night Reception is Friday, February 13 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets, $27 for adults, $22 for seniors, and $19 for students, youth, military, and teachers, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206.842.8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island.
