    Painting can be an amazing pursuit, but can also be quite lonely.  CAC now offers FREE Open Studio Space for its members.  Imagine having three hours on Friday mornings to devote to your art - to paint/draw in the company of other artists in a casual, supportive setting.  Music, coffee, and treats too!  A safe place to share ideas, get suggestions for problem paintings, and share knowledge and techniques with others to enhance your work. Each session ends with a 45-minute group critique if you choose to participate.  This group has been meeting informally for the past year, and is now expanding to CAC members.  Feel free to drop in, or come on a regular basis.  Just be sure to RSVP 24 hours in advance to reserve your art table.  Limited to water media, pastels, colored pencils, charcoals, etc. (no oils due to ventilation.)  Max of 10 adults.  Some experience with your media is required, but all levels are invited.  This is not a class, and there is no instructor.  It is open studio time.  Please write to info@corralesartscenter with any questions you have about joining the group.  

    Please RSVP each and every Friday that you wish to attend.

    Jazz is a true American art form… a synthesis of the West African music of plantation slaves and the European hymns they sang. From these origins, to the brothels of New Orleans, to its spread throughout America and Europe, we will follow the history, examine the musical elements of jazz and see how the many styles developed over time, from Dixieland to Bebop, Swing and Hard Bop to Cool Jazz and Latin and Afro-Cuban. We’ll listen to, and become more familiar with, some of the leading innovators in Jazz and see how they shaped our music in America.

    INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Priscilla Hallberg is a concert violinist and a 27 year veteran of the Boston Pops- Esplanade Orchestra. She has been on more than 20 national and international tours, working with Arthur Fiedler, John Williams and Keith Lockhart. She has taught violin, viola and music history and appreciation at Washington State, Murray State, Holy Cross, Medicine Hat College Conservatory in Canada and has been the host of “Amarillo Symphony Presents” on NPR. American jazz was a favorite research topic for her at Rutgers, where she recieved her DMA.

    Jazz, America’s greatest original music, is the product of diversity, a mix of the native West African music and Christian hymns that slaves sang on their plantations, brought to its low-down flavor in the brothels of New Orleans. We’ll learn about the history, structure and great early artists of jazz in course one, then the blues in course two, then in course three, we’ll follow the art form of jazz to Paris in the 1920’s where it galvanized the art crowd and created a permanent demand for le jazz hot. These three, 2-hour courses can be taken separately for $30 each, or 2 for $55, or all 3 for $75. Click on the links below for descriptions and to register and pay online.

    Students will learn everything about the blues—its history and how it is constructed —the form, harmonies and beat of the 12-Bar Blues—and the poetry that makes up the verses. We’ll study some examples through the years, and then we’ll experiment with creating our own Blues, drawn from our own life experiences, in sympathy with what’s going on in the world. And finally, we’ll sing our blues to the accompaniment of blues guitar. It promises to be a cathartic and liberating experience!

    Shannon Wheeler’s comic book character runs amok on stage in Too Much Coffee Man Opera with music by Emmy-winning composer Daniel Steven Crafts. This hour-long, one act Gonzo Opera* has played to sold-out audiences in Portland, San Diego ComiCon, San Francisco, Albuquerque, Columbia Center for the Arts, the Abiquiu and Astoria Music Festivals, Lewis & Clark University, and off-Broadway at the Theater Now New York festival.  It is heard to be the most frequently produced 21st century opera.

    Too Much Coffee Man and his buddy Espresso Guy hang around the local coffee shop and wax prolific about life, love and the universe.  Both are secretly in love with the barista who considers them both just annoyances. Finally, TMCM finds the courage to sing his Serenade to the barista, and the fun really begins!

    Starring Paul Bower as Too Much Coffee Man, Cammy Cook as the Barista, and Tjett Gerdom as Espresso Guy. Piano: Andreas Landstedt, Clarinet: Lori Lovato, Bass: Toby Vigneau.  

    *What exactly is Gonzo Opera?

    1)      It is real opera -- not musical theater and not a parody of the genre.  It uses beautiful classically-trained voices and allows them to demonstrate all the marvelous attributes of traditional vocal technique. The Gonzo style is full of melodymemorable melody that shows off the voices in the best possible light.  But

    2)      Gonzo Opera takes as its subject matter outrageous comedy/satire, normally unexpected in classical opera. It is as contemporary as the movies. No pathetic, dying heroines here. 

     The ultimate goal of presenting this new enlightened format is the re-invention of the operatic form in our times.  By making it relevant and relatable in satiric contexts, we introduce the magnificent effect of opera to new audiences who may never have realized they could enjoy the genre in a popular form.

      Make it an evening!   

      Have drinks and dinner before the opera! 

    (not included in ticket price) 

    Sponsored by  Robin and Julius Kaplan, and JoAnn and Scott  MacKenzie.  Thank you!

    American jazz was a staple of the café society in Paris in les Années folles (crazy years), or the 1920’s in Paris. Brought to France during WWI by the Harlem Hellfighters of the 369th Infantry Regiment, led by Leutenant James Reese Europe; by American singer and dancer, Jospehine Baker, who starred at the Follies Bergère in her loincloth of diamond studded bananas; by Sidney Bechet, Bricktop, Fetcher Henderson, Langston Hughes and many others, jazz found its way into the art music of such composers as Stravinsky, Cocteau, and Milhaud; and that of many American composers too, who came to Paris to study with French teacher, Nadia Boulanger. We’ll hear and discuss the jazz that was being played and the fantastic scene that was Paris.
