WE VALUE...

Arts programming that brings us together as a campus and community.

The North Carolina High Country is a special place, where families have deep roots and where visitors find natural beauty, rich cultural traditions, and small town friendliness in great abundance. It is also home to a great university that values the arts as an essential element of higher education and quality of life. Every summer, An Appalachian Summer Festival brings us together around a shared love of world-class music, dance, theatre, film, and visual arts programming geared to almost every artistic taste and preference.

Affordable access to the arts.

Key to the festival’s mission and identity is a commitment to affordable access. Ticketed performances are offered at prices substantially lower than prices for those same artists in other venues. The festival also offers a wide array of free and low-cost events designed to ensure access to quality arts programming for audiences of all ages.

Programming that elevates spirits, broadens horizons and expands our view of the world.

For some, it’s the stellar entertainment typically found only in big cities that the festival brings to our corner of the world each summer. For some it’s the ability to enjoy world-class arts programming in a spectacular mountain setting. And for others, it’s about the festival’s mission to provide exposure to artists and art forms that challenge and inspire us, while broadening our perspective and expanding our view of the world. “It is such a joy and privilege to meet new friends at festival events every summer – including local residents and visitors from across the nation who value quality arts programming and who delight in being with others who share this passion.” – Lynn Eisenberg, Festival Advisory Board 3

Generous support from our sponsors enables the festival to present diverse artistic programming and continue to grow each year. We wish to thank the corporate and media sponsors that proudly support An Appalachian Summer Festival!

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28 7PM, SCHAEFER CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS $10 General Admission

In Warsaw, December 1945, the second World War is finally over and French Red Cross doctor Mathilde is treating the last of the French survivors of the German camps. When a panicked Benedictine nun appears at the clinic begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent, what she finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth and several more in advanced stages of pregnancy. A nonbeliever, Mathilde enters the sisters’ fiercely private world, dictated by the rituals of their order and the strict Reverend Mother. Fearing the shame of exposure, the hostility of the occupying Soviet troops and local Polish communists and while facing an unprecedented crisis of faith, the nuns increasingly turn to Mathilde as their beliefs and traditions clash with harsh realities. Poland/France; PG-13; Directed by Anne Fontaine (2016); 115 Minutes

Pre-film talk with Dr. John Pfeifer begins at 7pm, with the film beginning at approximately 7:30pm.

STEPHEN WEICHOLZ GLOBAL FILM SERIES

WEDNESDAY, JULY 5

7PM, SCHAEFER CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS $10 General Admission

Set in modern day Greece, Worlds Apart is comprised of three separate narratives, each following a love story between a foreigner and a Greek. Each story represents a different generation falling in love during a time of socioeconomic turmoil that dominates Southern Europe as a whole, only to connect as a single story in the end. Almost like a triptych work of art where each painting stands alone, its true impact lies when viewed as a whole. Worlds Apart follows the characters’ difficult path to love and the complications in the world around them. Nevertheless, Greece, despite its harsh realities, is still a place where truth, beauty and humanity exist. A place where love can thrive, even in the darkest hour. Greece; Unrated; Directed by Christopher Papakaliatis (2015); 113 Minutes

Pre-film talk with Dr. John Pfeifer begins at 7pm, with the film beginning at approximately 7:30pm.

In a secluded valley in Iceland, Gummi and Kiddi live side by side, tending to their sheep. Although they share the land and a way of life, they have not spoken to each other in four decades. When a lethal disease suddenly infects Kiddi’s sheep, the entire valley comes under threat. This is a near death sentence for the farmers, whose sheep are their main source of income, and many abandon their land. But Gummi and Kiddi don’t give up so easily – and each brother tries to stave off the disaster in his own fashion: Kiddi by using his rifle and Gummi by using his wits. As the authorities close in, the brothers will need to come together to save the special breed passed down for generations, and themselves, from extinction.

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the latest from legendary director Ken Loach is a gripping, human tale about the impact one man can make. Gruff but goodhearted, Daniel Blake is a man out of time: a widowed woodworker who’s never owned a computer, he lives according to his own common sense moral code. But after a heart attack leaves him unable to work and the state welfare system fails him, the stubbornly self-reliant Daniel must stand up and fight for his dignity, leading a one-man crusade for compassion that will transform the lives of a struggling single mother and her two children. Graced with humor and heart, I, Daniel Blake is a moving, much-needed reminder of the power of empathy. UK; R; Directed by Ken Loach (2016); 100 Minutes

Known internationally for presenting work of exceptional inventiveness and physical beauty, MOMIX is a company of dancerillusionists under the direction of Moses Pendleton. If Salvador Dali and Leonardo da Vinci had encountered National Geographic, the result could have been Opus Cactus, Pendleton’s amazing evening length work about the desert world. With their signature illusionistic style, MOMIX explores the mysterious creatures and cacti of the American Southwest. Surreal, wondrous and massively creative, there’s nothing like the MOMIX performance experience.

Founded in 1970, Charlotte Ballet is known for its strong dancers and versatile repertoire, ranging from classical ballet to bold, contemporary works. Featuring an all-star lineup of choreographers, this exciting performance will leave audiences feeling uplifted, energized and in awe. The performances includes two iconic duets. Enjoy the opulence of classical ballet with the wedding scene from Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux’s Sleeping Beauty. Then see the dancers excel in a pas de deux from George Balanchine’s Stars and Stripes, staged by Patricia McBride, Charlotte Ballet’s associate artistic director, former New York City Ballet star and a Kennedy Center Honoree. The performance also includes two masterworks. Visionary choreographer Alonzo King’s ballet MAP, a metaphor for the different paths individuals must choose in life, was created 20 years ago for Charlotte Ballet. Mark Godden’s Angels in the Architecture is an ode to the simplicity and grace of the Shaker lifestyle set to composer Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring.” 29

The festival, in partnership with the Hayes School of Music, proudly presents the seventh season of the highly acclaimed Rosen-Schaffel Competition for Young & Emerging Artists.

An Appalachian Summer Festival will head to Banner Elk for a matinee performance of Legally Blonde by the highly acclaimed Lees McRae Summer Theatre.

(828) 262-4046 or (800) 841- 2787. About Legally Blonde Legally Blonde came out as a film and took the country by storm. What appeared to be a “fluffy” story with lots of pink and “California girl talk” morphed into something much deeper. Every moment in this show reminds us that when we try to stereotype people, we usually get it wrong. Then the Broadway stage grabbed the script and it morphed once again into a musical with amazing songs and dance numbers. Legally Blonde is a laugh a minute while we learn about who is smart – who thinks they are smart – and how intelligence with a good heart is the best kind. 32
