JAN C O N C E R T

MARTHA REDBONE TRIO Martha Redbone is one of today’s most vital voices in American Roots music. A multi award-winning musician, the charismatic songstress is celebrated for her tasty gumbo of roots music embodying the folk and mountain blues sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian hills of Kentucky mixed with the eclectic grit of her teenage years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn. With the power of her gospel singing AfricanAmerican father’s voice and the determined spirit of her Cherokee/ Shawnee/Choctaw mother, Redbone broadens all boundaries of Americana. Redbone has built a passionate fan base with her mesmerizing presence and explosive live shows.

CANCELED

Her latest CD, The Garden of Love - Songs of William Blake, produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder/Grammy Winner John McEuen is an unexpected twist – “a brilliant collision of cultures” (New Yorker) features Martha’s magnificent voice, Blake’s immortal words and a masterful cornucopia of roots music.

TIM LAMAN

Solitary animals living in hardto-reach places, orangutans are one of the most difficult large land animals to study. Since 1992, husband-and-wife team Cheryl Knott and Tim Laman have been using innovative techniques and new technologies to gain a closer look at this intelligent, resourceful—and threatened— species, giving us insights not only into their world, but also our own.

MARK THIESSEN

As a child, Kakani Katija dreamed of being an astronaut. She trained as an aerospace engineer but became captivated by an even less explored environment: our Earth’s oceans. As a bioengineer, instead of searching space for signs of life, she studies the waters that are teeming with it. Katija hopes to illuminate the twilight zones of the ocean—its little explored midwaters—with technology inspired by the creatures who live in it.

CODY KO & NOEL MILLER:

TINY MEAT GANG - BIGGER AND BETTER Friday January 31 8:00pm

Cody Ko and Noel Miller are two former software engineers who left their rock solid, bullet proof careers to become pretty decent comedians with no health insurance. They started the Tiny Meat Gang podcast late 2018, and since then, are still doing the podcast (with no flex). In January of 2019, Cody & Noel finally achieved the American dream­—setting out on a self-financed comedy tour and entertaining tens of hundreds of people around the ninth smartest nation in the world. The duo believes that the key to their success lies in their ability to overcome their small-ish physical stature with their 6-foot 7-inch personalities. Now they’re finally taking their athlete confidence and— again, pretty decent—senses of humor to the stage for an hour and a half of literal balls-out comedy. Come learn how you can summon your inner tall guy.

The only instruments on stage belong to the nine voices of the nationally-renowned a capella group Vocal Point. BYU Vocal Point captures audiences throughout the world with their stunning, high-energy performances and their elaborate and fun music videos.

Tuesday February 18 7:30pm

This nine-man group takes the songs you are familiar with, retools them and delivers a new rendition, complete with all the complex instrumentation done entirely with their mouths. Each Vocal Point member displays musical ability, creativity, and stage experience—a combination which adds up to original, skillful, and spirited performances.

BÉLA FLECK & ABIGAIL WASHBURN Thursday February 20 7:30pm

Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste Magazine), have a musical partnership like no other. Fleck has the virtuosic, jazz-to-classical ingenuity of an iconic instrumentalist and composer with bluegrass roots. His collaborations range from his ground-breaking standard-setting ensemble Béla Fleck and the Flecktones to a staggeringly broad array of musical experiments. Washburn has the earthy sophistication of a postmodern, old-time singer-songwriter who has drawn critical acclaim for her solo albums. With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America’s rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, Béla & Abigail meet in the mean, head-on, to present music that feels wildly innovative and familiar at the same time. Whether at home, on stage or on record, their deep bond, combined with the way their distinct musical personalities and banjo styles interact, makes theirs a picking partnership unlike any other on the planet.

WE SHALL OVERCOME Monday February 24 7:30pm

Inspired by the words and action of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “We Shall Overcome” showcases repertoire from across the African American music traditions that electrified generations of civil rights activists and defenders with interwoven spoken word from Dr. King’s recorded speeches. Producer and Musical Director Damien Sneed’s career covers an incredible breadth of genres. He has conducted original works for Wynton Marsalis, collaborated with Lawrence Brownlee, and toured extensively with Diana Ross. This production ties together a living lineage of music and culture that includes traditional gospel, modern gospel, classical, jazz, Broadway and spirituals. From Aretha Franklin, to Wynton Marsalis; Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder; Nina Simone to Donny Hathaway; and traditional spirituals and music from “the Wiz.” Damien’s unique understanding of each genre allows him to fluidly cover much musical ground in a single performance.

BLACK VIOLIN: IMPOSSIBLE TOUR Wednesday May 6, 2020 7:30pm

Black Violin returns to Portland with their Impossible Tour, spreading the message that anything is possible and there are no limits to what one can achieve, regardless of circumstance. Their focus is positivity and encouragement. Black Violin is composed of both classically trained violist Wil Baptiste and violinist Kev Marcus. The duo, from South Florida, began playing together in their high school orchestra class. After attending separate colleges, Kev and Wil reunited and decided to combine their classical training and love for hip-hop music, establishing a distinguished, genre-bending sound that has often been described as “classical boom.” Black Violin has shared stages with top names including Kanye West, Aerosmith and Tom Petty, and has creatively collaborated with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys.

PORTLAND’5 CENTERS FOR THE ARTS PARTNERS WITH KULTURECITY FOR SENSORY-FRIENDLY VENUE CERTIFICATION

P

ortland’5 Centers for the Arts has partnered with KultureCity to make Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Keller Auditorium, Newmark Theatre, Winningstad Theatre, and Brunish Theatre, and all of the programs and events that they host, to be Sensory Inclusive.™ This new initiative will promote an accommodating and positive experience for all guests and fans with a sensory issue that visit the Portland’5 venues. The certification process entailed the staff of Portland’5 Centers for the Arts being trained by leading medical professionals on how to recognize those guests and fans with sensory needs and how to handle a sensory overload situation. Sensory bags, equipped with noise canceling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads will also be available to all guests of Portland’5 Centers for the Arts who may feel overwhelmed by the environment. Sensory bags and lap pads can be found at the coat check window of each venue.

Look for these signs in all five theaters promoting an accommodating and positive experience for all guests.

Sensory sensitivities or challenges with sensory regulation are often experienced by individuals with autism, dementia, PTSD, and other similar conditions. One of the major barriers for these individuals is sensitivity to overstimulation and noise, which is an all-pervasive part of the environment in a venue like Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall or Keller Auditorium. With its new certification, Portland’5 Centers for the Arts is now better prepared to assist guests with sensory sensitivities in having the most comfortable and accommodating experience possible when attending any event at the five downtown venues. “To know that you soon will be able to see families attend a theatrical event, a true community binding experience, with their loved ones who have a sensory challenge and who were not able to previously attend, is truly a heartwarming moment. Our communities are what shape our lives and to know that Portland’5 Centers for the Arts is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that everyone, no matter their ability, is included in their community is amazing.” Traci Johnson, Executive Director, KultureCity.

Sensory bags include weighted blankets, noise canceling headphones, fidget tools, and verbal cue cards.

KultureCity is a leading nonprofit recognized nationwide for using their resources to revolutionize and effect change in the community for those with sensory needs; not just those with autism. In the past year alone, KultureCity has created several sensory inclusive venues and events including the NFL Pro-Bowl, NFL Super Bowl, MLB All Star Weekend, 18 NBA arenas, 6 NFL stadiums, 5 NHL arenas 3 MLB arenas, and countless zoos, science centers and aquariums across the nation.

FOUNDATION The mission of Portland'5 Centers for the Arts Foundation is to secure funds for culturally-relevant education programming and venue capital projects as part of Portland’5 Centers for the Arts’ commitment to ensure access to the performing arts for people of all means, cultures, abilities, and ethnicities. Lack of arts education opportunities disproportionately affects students and families from communities of color and low-income households. Many attend schools that do not provide comprehensive arts programming, if any at all. Additional barriers to the arts include limited access to transportation, lack of expendable time, lack of disposable income, little or no exposure to the arts, and a mis-perception that the arts are exclusive. There is no charge to any school, student, or family to attend an Education Program event. Student transportation is sponsored exclusively by your local Toyota dealers.
