Welcome to the 2013-14 Season of Performing Arts! Dear Patron, One of the joys of a new performing arts center is discovering what it does well and what it does best. Each venue is different, each has its own nuances. Three things are clear about the Harris Center: • Artists love to play here, and they tell us so. They love the audience, the venue, the people who work behind the scenes, and this community. Bravo to all of you! • We have an exceptional house for Broadway shows and we have gone out of our way this season to bring fresh new material from the bright lights of New York (see pg. 4). • We’re a great facility for dance, and we’re offering you a lot of it (see pgs. 8 and 18). If ever there was a year for you to immerse yourself in dance—to try some performances

on for size and allow yourself to be taken by surprise—this is the year. For that is the greatest joy of a performing arts center: introducing new things to you, our audience, and waiting to hear that rustle of excitement in the hall following a great performance. We remain the same three stages, with a brand new name: The Harris Center for the Arts. New name, and still a new facility, with more to reveal to us all. Here’s to just getting started! Dave Pier, Executive Director

Nothing changes a family more—more hilariously, more musically or more enjoyably—than a daughter in love. “Two snaps up!” (Fox 5 News). Sponsored by Wells Fargo.

Antonio Zambujo The New Fado “We are taking what the Gypsies did, traveling from India to the Balkans and on to Western Europe and putting together the best musical ideas from every nation along the way. We’re open to the world, and we just take everything we like and make it one,”
explains clarinet wonder Ismail Lumanovski. The All-Stars grew up jamming with local roots musicians. Onstage, it’s ‘’infectious and hypnotic music’’ (WNYC) “full of complex rhythms and impressive group improvisations” (J&R Music World), and often a multicultural “blast of raucous party music” (Chicago Reader).

“He upholds fado’s sense of longing and tragic dignity as he brings it into modern close-up” [New York Times]. Antonio Zambujo infuses contemporary instruments, jazz and bossa nova into the sentimental atmospheric sounds of Portugal’s soulful folk tradition known as fado. With his earthy songs, honeyed tones and sensitive interpretation, Zambujo has emerged as one of the best modern fado artists. “The most beautiful male voice of today.” [Le Figero]

Huun Huur Tu An evening of ancient music—while transcendentally modern, even adventurous, at the same time. From Central Asia comes Huun Huur Tu, who almost singlehandedly introduced the outside world to the boundless wealth of Tuvan traditions when they began touring in the ‘90s, thanks in great part to their superior musicianship and capacity for intelligent innovation. Using traditional instruments—and their amazing technique of “throat singing,” in which one voice sings two and even three notes simultaneously—the ensemble draws subtly on 20th-century composers, funky rhythms, and the palette of electronica.

The Moscow Classical Ballet The Nutcracker

A Folsom favorite, The Moscow Classical Ballet returns to perform The Nutcracker. One of three ballet companies supported by the Russian government, they “boast a cluster of phenomenal young dancers...its corps performs in an uncluttered, streamlined style” (New York Times). Winner of over 15 Gold Medals, they have toured The Nutcracker in the US every year for the past 22 years. “To call this Nutcracker old fashioned is to compliment it. It presents the ballet as a beautiful and traditional Christmas present, filled with charming dancers, spare but bright costumes, and wonderful music” (Orange County Calendar). Performed to recorded music. STAGE 1

STAGE ONE

STAGE ONE 850-Seat Theater With a 46-foot proscenium, a full stage house, and orchestra pit, this venue is capable of presenting all of the arts, from Broadway to symphonies, from contemporary dance to world music. Stage One puts the artists close to the audience, in an intimate venue reminiscent of the Globe Theater in England.

STAGE THREE

STAGE TWO

STAGE TWO 200-Seat City Studio Theater So named for the generous support by the City of Folsom, the City Studio has gently raked seating and, like Stage One, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. It’s a unique performance space in the capital region.

STAGE THREE 95-Seat Scott-Skillman Recital Hall An exceptional setting for acoustic music and vocals — the reverberation is exquisite. Harris Center at its most intimate, the Scott-Skillman Recital Hall offers a phenomenal space for classical music, film and more.

Harris Center at Folsom Lake College is a $50 million regional facility built to present, produce, and teach the arts. The Center features three intimate state-of-the-art performance spaces, an art gallery, one of the region’s largest recording studios, and spacious educational facilities—all tucked into an 80,000 square foot complex overlooking Folsom, conveniently located with plenty of safe parking.


FOLSOM LAKE COLLEGE

Productions originating at Folsom Lake College

A LITTLE HISTORY The search by the Los Rios Community College District for an exceptional high-tech educational facility began in 1964, but it wasn’t until 1997, when state outlay funds became available, that construction of the current Folsom Lake College facilities was undertaken. Folsom Lake College received initial accreditation in 2004. Today, Folsom Lake College operates at three sites. The growth in enrollment, personnel, facilities, services, and education programs has been explosive, as evidenced by the opening of Harris Center at Folsom Lake College, as well as by its broad educational offerings in the sciences, humanities, technology, and the arts. The college has cultivated a reputation for unequaled dedication, unparalleled service, and a passionate pursuit of excellence that is respected by its colleagues in higher education, appreciated by its business partners, supported by its students, and energized and fueled by its staff.

SUPPORT HARRIS CENTER YOU CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!

As we begin our third season of performing arts at the Harris Center, so much of the news is good. Performances have been well received, ticket sales are strong, children are coming by bus to experience the magic of the arts during the day, and our community partners and the college’s educational programs are thriving in their new home.  In general, the Harris Center has nestled comfortably into the daily life of the region. Thank you for your generous and enthusiastic support. But while attendance of the Harris Center has been excellent, ticket sales are but one side of the coin. As is common in the arts, relying on sales alone will not allow the Center to reach its full potential, to be all that it can be for this community.  Support to open the Center was generous, coming from state and local bond measures, and many donations from both individuals and businesses — but it must continue, and grow, for the Harris Center to evolve and thrive. To support the dream of a vibrant regional arts center for this community, please consider deepening your involvement with the Harris Center through an annual membership donation or the naming of a seat (for you, or honoring someone you love). Other opportunities to support the Center are also available.  Each donation makes a difference and is tax deductible — and formal benefits grow at each level of giving. For more information, visit harriscenter.net, or contact Sally Howard, Director of College Advancement, at 916-608-6643 or howards@flc.losrios.edu.
