A word from

MAYOR JIM GUNNING In December, the City of Lone Tree released the results of our bi-annual Resident Survey. This survey helps City staff and officials better understand citizens’ satisfaction with the work we do on their behalf. It provides us important data and benchmarking to ensure we’re carrying out the wishes of our constituents and providing the best quality of life we can. The results started out strong and just got better from there. 98% of all Lone Tree residents rate our overall quality of life as “excellent” or “good”. Further review highlights our terrific leisure amenities as top reasons why citizens are so pleased. Building the Arts Center was a bit of a gamble; would it be worth it? Would it make our city more attractive? Would it add to our quality of life? Since the doors opened, we’ve been flooded by positive feedback about the staff, artistic choices, and overall environment; we knew people liked the Arts Center… but would the survey reflect that? Clearly, it did. 96% of respondents rate the Lone Tree Arts Center as a positive addition to our community – and almost half of our City’s population has attended an Arts Center event in the past year. The Arts Center is the highest ranked amenity Lone Tree has to offer. The Arts Center was built to serve the entire South Metro area, and it does. But it is a tremendous affirmation to learn that those citizens whose vote passed a bond to build the Arts Center are as pleased with the results as we are. Enjoy the show! Mayor Jim Gunning

A word from

Executive Director Lisa Rigsby Peterson Earlier in January, I went to the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference in New York. You know what show was getting all the buzz - the “must have” show for next year? The Doo-Wop Project! I felt so proud; once again, Lone Tree is ahead of the curve! The hit show is playing here before continuing on to major venues at cities across the country - just another way we’re trying to surpass every mark set for us here at LTAC. From sell-out crowds at summer concerts and holiday shows to LEED certification to top-notch programming, our talented staff share your enthusiasm for and dedication to this incredible Arts Center. Three years ago, as the Arts Center moved from a dream to an actual building project, one thing struck us about LTAC: we could be different. This could be a place that combined the warm, welcoming feeling of an intimate community center with top-notch professional theater and entertainment options. Since the day our doors opened, we have tried to capture that spirit in all that we do. While our second season is halfway over, there is still a HUGE second half to see! Internationally recognized SFJAZZ Collective will share the music of Chick Corea in a new and exciting way; the playwright and original director of Hank Williams: Lost Highway is joining us to direct this fabulous biographical musical; we’ll celebrate Black History Month with a live radio broadcast on the world’s fastest man, Jesse Owens; the funniest play I have ever seen will keep us out of the winter doldrums when Nick Sugar directs Noises Off; and two vibrant performances by the Colorado Symphony are sure to leave you breathless. Add in our wonderful Chamber Music and Essential Jazz series and I think you’ll agree, we’re on a roll! I hope you are excited as I am about this fantastic line-up. We look forward to welcoming you back through our doors soon. Lisa Rigsby Peterson

PROGRAM NOTES CPE Bach: Sinfonietta no. 2 in E-flat major For three centuries in central Germany, music could scarcely escape the touch of the Bach clan. Cousins, nephews, sons, and grandsons – with a few ladies amongst the midst – served as keyboard artists and composers in the towns, cities, and royal houses of Europe’s heart. Best known of them all today is the unsurpassed master Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750). Even more successful at their time was his second son Carl Philip Emanuel (1714 – 1788). The family called him Emanuel; historians have dubbed him CPE Bach. By either name, he bridges the transitional time in music history between the days of the Baroque and those of Mozart, as the so-called Classical style was first coming into its own. CPE Bach spent thirty years based in Berlin as part of the musical establishment of the most powerful of Germany’s many royal houses, that of Frederick the Great of Prussia. Being a reasonably talented flutist, Frederick expected much flute music from the composers on his staff, but tolerated other works as well. This Sinfonietta (a “little symphony”) is typical of the style of the day. Its first movement is bright and sparkling, with much use of strings and harpsichord, though flutes and oboes also have their turn in the sun. The brief second movement gives plaintive solo lines to the woodwinds with languid, flowing themes for the strings. Lighter moods return for the final movement, longest of the three, with bright, dance-like melodies for all. The Sinfonietta is less intricate than JS Bach would have made it, and less hearty than Mozart. As such, it reveals how music evolved between those two generations, a period of evolution much influenced by CPE Bach.

Haydn: Cello Concerto no. 1 in C major Joseph Haydn (1732 – 1809) spent the last four decades of his life employed by the aristocratic Esterhazy family, in charge of all the music the court might require. That Haydn stayed with them for so long is proof not only of the Esterhazy’s satisfaction with him, but also his satisfaction with them. Part of that satisfaction came from the Esterhazy’s deep appreciation of music in general, and continuing interest in what

Haydn might have to entertain them, an evergrowing collection of music. During his time of employment, Haydn composed and presented at Esterhazy a massive body of work that would have occupied the entire lives of any three other composers. His entire catalog includes several thousand works, notably symphonies and string quartets, but also concertos intended for the principal players of the Esterhazy orchestra, who were widely considered amongst the best in the business. That fact meant that Haydn, too, was judged as one of the best in his field. His C-major Cello Concerto – the first of two such works – was composed in the early 1760s as a showcase for the Esterhazys principal cellist Joseph Weigl. In later decades, the manuscript disappeared and did not come to light again until 1961, when it was found in the Prague National Museum. Its rediscovery was a blessing not only to Haydn scholars, but also to gifted cellists, who have taken the work into their hearts. The work’s opening movement is bright and sunny, with the orchestra of strings, oboes, and horns presenting the basic themes before the soloist joins in, elaborating busily upon that material. By contrast, the second movement is sweet and restful, spotlighting instead the cello’s facility with long and languid phrases. For the finale, Haydn opted for perky and festive moods and nimble, fast-flowing lines for all, though especially the soloist. Two of the three movements include so-called cadenzas: utterly solo passages in which the orchestra sits out and the soloist plays on, possibly improvising. Such bravura display was considered crucial in a soloist, and Haydn supplied the opportunity. It is a work that makes the most of the cello, both its lyrical side and its ability to produce fireworks.

PROGRAM NOTES Mozart: Symphony no. 40 in g minor, K. 550 1788 was a dark year for Mozart. His popularity in Vienna was at a low ebb, bills were piling up, and his infant daughter Theresia had just died. Letters to friends reveal that he was finding it difficult to look beyond the shadows, and some have suggested that this fact influenced this symphony, one of only two to be based on a minor key. However, it is worth remembering that this is one of three symphonies he wrote this same summer, the last three he would ever compose, and the other two – numbers 39 and 41 – are bright and sunny works. One might imagine that Mozart loaded his somber feelings into this one composition. Yet even here, there is sweetness and sunshine to be found. At no point in his career did Mozart allow his music to stay long in somber moods. The first movement makes much of plaintive sighs, though gentle graceful melodies also

appear and even occasional bursts of jubilation. The second movement is softly elegant, as if it were music for a noble lady gazing out into the moonlight. Here, Mozart entirely sets aside the shadows of minor keys in favor of brighter major keys. The third movement minuet offers both darkness and light, the dark passages strongly assertive and the light ones sweeter. For the finale, Mozart returns to a general focus upon more serious moods, often given an urgent and fretful turn. In the middle of the movement, different sections of the orchestra simultaneously concern themselves with different melodic ideas, all blended into an intricate mix. By the last pages, clouds have covered the sky and sunny moods are utterly dismissed. The music never becomes angry, but tension and worry are everywhere. Here is the somber side of Mozart. All program notes by Betsy Schwarm, author of “Classical Music Insights” and “Operatic Insights.”

Rachel Bouchard is so excited to be making her debut with Starkey Productions. She recently played Meg in Backstage Theatre’s production of Leading Ladies. Other regional companies with whom she has worked include: Creede Repertory Theatre, Miners Alley Playhouse and The Edge Theatre. She has also both performed and

directed in Chicago. She would like to thank her extraordinary husband Michael and her grandmother, Ann, the most incredible, toughest broad she knows. Kurt Brighton is excited to revisit a favorite show—he played Freddie in a production of Noises Off at OpenStage Theatre in 2007 and he’s looking forward to the aerobic workout! Some of Kurt’s favorite roles include King Henry II in The Lion in Winter, Dr. Martin Dysart in Equus, and Roy Cohn in the Ovation Award-winning production of Angels in America at Vintage Theater. Many thanks to Nick and this great cast for the opportunity to play! Scot Cahoon is thrilled for the opportunity to work with such a talented group on this wild and witty show. Scot holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre: Acting/ Directing from Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado. He most recently has been seen in Ignite Theatre’s production of Sweeney Todd and Spotlight Theatre’s Murder on the Nile. Thanks to God and his family as well as his theatre family for being so welcoming and so much fun.

BIOGRAPHIES Anna Gibson has many Denver highlights including: RENT (Mimi; “Outstanding Musical” Henry Award, 2011); Hello, Dolly! (Dolly Levi); Joseph...Dreamcoat (Narrator); The Sound of Music (Maria); Guys and Dolls (Adelaide), As You Like It (Celia), The Hostage (Theresa). She also works as a voiceover artist for the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. Anna is thrilled to debut with Starkey Productions at the Lone Tree Arts Center, and would like to thank Nick Sugar. Much love to her family and Iain for their continual support. Trina Magness has seen on stages around Denver for 20 years. Notable roles include: Ma in Mouse in a Jar (Denver Post Ovation Winner for Best Actress in a Drama and Best of Westword for Best Dramatic Actress), First Macbeth Witch in (Denver Post Ovation Winner for Best Ensemble), Lois in The Perfect Party (Denver Post Ovation Nominee for Best Actress in a Comedy), and most recently, Therese in AutoDa-Fe at the Lida Project. Evan Marquez is happy to be performing with Starkey Productions for the first time. Some of his recent roles include Roger Hopewell in Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 (Longmont Theater Company), Felix Ungar in The Odd Couple (California Actor’s Theatre), and Lionel Toop in See How They Run (Glendale Centre Theatre). Evan played Freddie once before in his high school production of Noises Off. He’s excited to have another chance… this time with slightly less acne.

Ron Welch is very pleased to be making his first appearance at LTAC. After 20 years singing, acting, directing and designing shows with the Evergreen Chorale, he recently has appeared in shows with THAC in Littleton. In past years he has performed in musical theater from playing leads to ensemble characters. This is his first non-musical show in many years. His thanks to Ronni and Nick for giving him this opportunity to dust off an old chapter in his acting career.

Donor Profiles SCIENTIFIC & CULTURAL FACILITIES DISTRICT Since 1989, Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) has distributed funds from a 1/10 of 1% sales and use tax to cultural facilities throughout the seven-county Denver, Colorado metropolitan area. The funds support cultural facilities whose primary purpose is to enlighten and entertain the public through the production, presentation, exhibition, advancement and preservation of art, music, theatre, dance, zoology, botany, natural history and cultural history. Distributing approximately $40 million annually, the SCFD provides funding to roughly 300 organizations each year, including the Lone Tree Arts Center. As a result of SCFD, Denver is now in the national spotlight and has been elevated in stature to a world-class cultural center.

LONE TREE CULTURAL ARTS FOUNDATION The Lone Tree Cultural Arts Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, was formed in 2008 to ensure that the Lone Tree Arts Center meets the current and future needs of the community. During the construction phase of the Arts Center, the Foundation worked to raise funds necessary to realize many of the extraordinary upgrades to the Center that you see today – including the beautiful grand piano and the orchestra shell. The Foundation is currently focused on enhancing the Lone Tree Arts Center by providing fundraising and other community leadership. As part of the effort to provide superior programming at the Arts Center, the Lone Tree Cultural Arts Foundation actively works to secure funding in support of specific programs at the Center. In fact, during the 2012/2013 season, the Lone Tree Cultural Arts Foundation is proud to be a presenting sponsor of all six theatrical productions.
