Starting a New Decade… The 10th anniversary season was a huge success. Attendance and revenue was the highest we have ever experienced. Strong community support, talented artists of every age and experience; and some of the best people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. It’s hard to imagine our first decade is coming to a close. It took us a long time to get to this point. Starting something like the OAC took a lot of heavy lifting, but every step of the way people came out of the woodwork to lend a hand, giving their wisdom, skills, dedication and passion. The result, a professional arts center part of a K-12 educational district that has become a model for other districts around Wisconsin. Over the past five years I have hosted over a dozen schools from around the state at the OAC who came to Oconomowoc to see what it is that makes us special. Yes, we have a wonderful, state-of-the art facility, but we also had the vision, the model and the people to make it work. Not just for the school district, but the entire Oconomowoc community and lake country area. As the OAC moves into its next decade of supporting our mission, we will have new opportunities, new challenges, and hopefully, continued growth and success. There are so many people who played a role in this incredible journey from the referendum in 2006 to our opening in 2008, and now, our 10th anniversary. I am truly blessed to live in, and be a part of, a remarkable and vibrant community! Dream big, work hard, don’t settle and keep looking forward. Here’s to the next decade!

The group currently has nearly nine million views and 107,000 subscribers on YouTube. “We started out as a group of friends getting together for fun and music-making in 2013 and we never thought we would ever have such a huge following,” said Mallory Moser of Backtrack. “Just last week we performed on top of the One World Trade Center at the Klick

Oconomowoc Area School District In the Oconomowoc Area School District (OASD), our vision is to become an unrivaled learning community, seeking wisdom, honoring the past and shaping the future. We offer a world-class education through rigorous curriculum, award-winning programs, nationally recognized staff and opportunities for all students to reach their highest potential. As a district, we focus on finding an opportunity for success for every child. Learning strategists, reading specialists, interventionists and teachers of gifted and talented partner with general education teachers to meet the needs of all students at high levels through co-teaching and Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The principles of UDL allow us to better personalize opportunities for each student’s learning style, preparing them for success as they progress through any number of pathways. With the generous support of the Oconomowoc community, the district has embarked on several facility enhancement and expansion projects. These include improvements to Greenland, Park Lawn and Ixonia Elementary Schools and the complete replacement of Meadow View Elementary School. A new OHS East Campus building is also being renovated to house innovative programs focused on science, business, engineering, design, digital arts and more. Our students have the opportunity to learn about and be involved in an impressive array of performing and visual arts opportunities. The curriculum includes art and music experiences beginning in 4K, continuing through the high school level where students can select classes or clubs like drama, jazz combo, play production or metals and jewelry, among many other options. Even at the elementary level, students in third and fourth grade present their school musicals. In the intermediate grades, students perform school musicals on the stage of the Oconomowoc Arts Center. Band and orchestra students are included in high school

performances, and jazz band participants add their talents to district-wide jazz concerts. OHS also has thriving athletic programs, having won the Wisconsin Little Ten All-Sports Award for six consecutive years, and recently transitioned into the Classic 8 Conference in 2017. Over 750 students participate in athletics annually, with one third of those students attaining scholar athlete status. The Oconomowoc Area School District is a special place, with a faculty, staff, and administration committed to helping every child succeed. At the same time, we recognize that schools alone cannot prepare children to be future leaders. That is a partnership shared with the community, and we are fortunate in Oconomowoc to have a community that takes that partnership so seriously. We are grateful for that support and look forward to continued learning and growth.

Get into the Holiday Spirit with the Eric Mintel Jazz Quartet’s Charlie Brown Jazz By Rebecca Seymour

Just in time for the holidays, the Eric Mintel Jazz Quartet returns to the OAC’s Main Stage with its Charlie Brown Jazz concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, December 15. The quartet promises to pull at the audience’s nostalgic heartstrings as they perform favorite holiday classics and original versions of songs by famed composer Vince Guaraldi, the man behind the immortal score for A Charlie Brown Christmas. Featuring pianist and composer Eric Mintel, Nelson Hill on saxophone and flute, Jack Hegyi on electric and upright bass and Dave Mohn on drums, the worldclass virtuoso jazz musicians have been entertaining audiences of all ages with their electrifying jazz for more than 25 years. “We are so excited to have the opportunity to perform again on the Oconomowoc Arts Center’s stage. The facility is so beautiful and the piano is pretty awesome, too!” said Mintel. A Charlie Brown Christmas features wellknown Christmas songs and several original pieces, including Christmas Time Is Here, Skating and the legendary Linus and Lucy.

Jazz fans will appreciate the Eric Mintel Quartet’s interpretation of the familiar pieces that make up the iconic score. “We take all the great music from A Charlie Brown Christmas and expand it by putting our own spin on it. The concert will also include original music that I’ve written and holiday favorites with a twist,” added Mintel. As the musicians perform the music behind A Charlie Brown Christmas, a large screen will feature a slideshow of Charles Schultz’s beloved Peanuts comic strip characters, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy and others, as well as memorable scenes from the heart-warming animated TV special. The Eric Mintel Jazz Quartet performed at the White House in 1998 for President Clinton and again in 2011 for President Obama. The group has also been featured in more than 10 concerts at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, played a special concert at the United Nations and was a featured guest on NPR. cont. on page 32

The music behind Charlie Brown People of all ages can’t help but hum along to the lyrical and contemporary jazz beats accompanying A Charlie Brown Christmas. Like Lucy swooning on Schroeder’s toy piano, the music takes us back to the holidays of our childhood when life was as smooth and easy as the funky beat of an upright bass. American composer and jazz pianist, Vince Guaraldi, dubbed “Dr. Funk” by his compatriots and known for his innovative arrangements, composed the soundtrack for A Charlie Brown Christmas TV special in 1965. Guaraldi went on to score 17 animated television Peanuts specials, as well as the

1969 feature film A Boy Named Charlie Brown. The Vince Guaraldi Trio’s A Charlie Brown Christmas has been voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and added to the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry list of “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important” sound recordings. “When I was a kid, some of the first jazz I ever heard was from Charlie Brown. We had a piano in our home and I remember figuring out the Linus and Lucy theme,” added Mintel. “Charlie Brown Jazz speaks to everyone and is a celebration of the enduring music of Vince Guaraldi. I love seeing all the smiling faces after the concert because we are all connected through this amazing music.” www.ericmintelquartet.com

Never Fear – Winston is Here! Randy Otto roars on stage as Winston Churchill By Rebecca Seymour Randy Otto

honing his craft to dramatically emulate the larger-than-life man on stage. With a degree in theater and time spent on the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre’s stage and others, Otto is well-versed in how to reach his audience.

Experience one harrowing night of The Blitz, the German bombing of London. Wisconsin native Randy Otto portrays British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill in his one-man show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 18, 2019. As the iconic leader and astonishingly nuanced and witty Winston Churchill, Otto shatters the imaginary 4th wall, transporting the audience back to a rooftop in September, 1940 during the German bombing in London. Winston Churchill: The Blitz re-creates the harrowing, but uplifting story of Churchill’s experiences as he faced the greatest crisis of the 20th century. Churchill’s timeless words and audacious leadership inspire the British people to greatness. Churchill scholar, motivational speaker and performance artist, Otto has spent more than four decades studying Churchill’s life and

40 www.theoac.net

“During Act II we re-create the rooftop in London that Churchill ascended as the sirens cried out the Germans were coming. As everyone else was hiding underground, Winston wanted to see where the bombs were being dropped,” explained Otto. “After the all clear sounded Winston would motor to where that night’s bombing was the worst. He called it ‘Touching the Troops.’ Churchill believed the British people would trust him and that every bomb that Hitler dropped only made them stronger.” The evening finishes with Ask Winston, an audience-interactive opportunity to query Churchill - an exhilarating “oneon-one” with the Prime Minister. “I am incredibly passionate about my subject matter – I think about him daily,” said Otto. “Winston Churchill is such a gigantic personality – he belongs on stage. This show is designed to entertain and also to place people right in The Blitz with Winston as he roars to life on stage.”


Bringing Churchill to life Otto’s journey into Churchill began in 1973 when his British History professor, Dr. Maxwell Schoenfeld challenged him not only to study Churchill’s life academically, but to emulate the great man on stage. “He encouraged me to tell Churchill’s stories on stage so that people wouldn’t forget about him. I give credit to Max for every performance and it’s no accident that my son is named after him,” he admitted.

the International Churchill Society. He is also affiliated with America’s National Churchill Museum located on the campus of Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri and is helping to complete The Churchill Documents, a series in the official biography of Winston Churchill, as part of the Churchill project at Hillsdale College in Michigan. This last December, Otto attended a private screening at Hillsdale College of the recently released film, The Darkest Hour starring Gary Oldman as Churchill. Otto had the opportunity to meet and converse with the award-winning actor.

Otto also has fond memories of taking his family to see famed actor, Hal Holbrook in his one-man show, Mark Twain Tonight in 2009.

“My friend and the president of Hillsdale College, Dr. Larry Arnn, introduced me to Gary as the second greatest Winston Churchill in the world!” laughed Otto.

“I was really struggling to create an original script and confused as to how I could portray this larger than life icon. I was able to meet Hal backstage after the show and we both just slipped into our characters and started ad-libbing a conversation between Twain and Churchill,” Otto said, laughing. “Hal Holbrook ignited my dream, giving me great advice – ‘Randy, just tell Churchill’s stories, and then string them together with segues, and you will be doing this when you’re my age!’ He’s 93 now and we still keep in touch.”

“Winston Churchill: The Blitz took nearly 10 years to imagine and develop with a keen eye toward historical accuracy. Constantly evolving, every show is different. The audience embarks on an entertaining journey with Winston himself painting the landscape of war-torn London. Utilizing the stories of the Londoners themselves as his paint, brush and easel, Churchill’s magnanimous heart simply shines through; leaving the audience feeling as if they were really there.”

Otto actively participates on the advisory board for the Churchill Society of Wisconsin, one of 25 USA authorized affiliates in
