taking the world by storm Storm Large has been taking the nation by storm with her singing talent and rock and jazz musical infusions since 1989. Yet most people may not have known about her until 2006 when she was a contestant on the CBS reality television show Rock Star: Supernova. On Friday, Dec. 1 at 8 p.m., she will take the Federal Way Performing Arts and Events Center by storm. A native of Southborough, Massachusetts, Large has an extensive musical history that’s taken her all across the United States. Now with eight studio albums and a long list of touring experiences, she’s a master of her craft and of performing. And she’s more than a singer. She’s an actor, musician and author too. She has worked on musicals, one specifically to be performed at the Public Theater in New York City, and her rock performances are examples of her acting talents.


Near the beginning of her musical career, Large moved to Portland, Oregon, with a new career in mind as a chef. But music wasn’t going to let her go so easily. Not long after her move she was singing again, this time in her band. Many saw her in 2010 performing with the Oregon Symphony, and she’s sold out shows multiple times since then. After performing at Carnegie Hall in 2013, The New York Times called her “sensational.” From her long resume, it looks as if she never takes a break, as if her creative juices are constantly flowing. That’s more than likely true, and even more likely is that no one is complaining. Her latest album Le Bonheur is like an ode to love itself. Storm Large seems to have found a niche in subject matter that her fans can’t get enough of. Her performance this Dec. 1 in Federal Way will no doubt be exhilarating and moving. Try not to miss it.

honoring excellence, creativity and achievements Washington’s governors began the tradition of honoring artists, arts organizations, arts educators and cultural leaders in 1966 with the Governor’s Arts Awards. Heritage Awards were added in 1989 to honor tradition bearers and heritage organizations. Coordinated by the Washington State Arts Commission, or ArtsWA, the awards are some of the most prestigious bestowed by the governor. In 2016, honorees included artist Barbara Earl Thomas (Seattle), Vashon Center for the Arts (Vashon), Tejano musician Oscar Galvan (Toppenish), Asia Pacific Cultural Center (Tacoma), and Dr. Quinton Morris (Renton), who received the Young Art Leader Award. Six awards will be presented at this year’s awards dinner at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma on Nov. 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

gaelic storm at the washington center for the performing arts Since the 1990s, Gaelic Storm has been defining and transcending the Celtic genre. With their latest release, titled Matching Sweaters, the band has planned an extensive tour that will bring them to the Washington Center for the Performing Arts Thursday, Oct. 5. The band started in Santa Monica, California, but since then their music has reached the farthest corners of the globe, bringing Celtic music to those who may have originally been averse to it. The band’s bio states that when it came time to write the 12 songs of Matching Sweaters, Patrick Murphy and Steve Twigger teamed up with longtime friend and co-writer Steve Wehmeyer. Together, the three found inspiration in “everything from old Irish newspapers—to bits of conversation overheard in local pubs.”

Tickets for the Oct. 5 show at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts can be purchased at vJORDAN MARIE MARTINEZ For additional information: The Washington Center for the Performing Arts 512 Washington St SE, Olympia

“Playing for a new crowd is great,” writes Twigger on the band’s website. “It takes you back to those early days, where you’ve got something to prove. We could just do Irish festivals, but why not play a crossover show where 90 percent of the audience doesn’t know you, and you have to make them know you? That’s what makes your band good.” As evidenced on the band’s past album covers and website (with a cat and dog chumming it up in matching sweaters), they have a sense of humor that shapes the band and gives them the credibility to cross genres and also perfect Celtic music. Their show on the Washington Center Main Stage will be not only entertaining and fun, but also challenging to the audience. The “challenge” isn’t daunting or negative, but an opportunity to appreciate multiple genres in one evening, especially one built on ballads and old tales. “Matching Sweaters is one of the most complete albums we’ve done so far,” says band member Ryan Lacey, “because it taps into every facet of our live show.”

community SOUTH SOUND FALL ARTS 2017 fall 2017

With the days shortening and the weather getting cooler, now is the time to plan your fall arts calendar. No matter what you are interested in, you’ll find outstanding performances in the South Sound this autumn. We’ve selected a few standouts that you shouldn’t miss.


Experience a night of electrifying music that traces the journey of American superstar Janis Joplin in A Night with Janis Joplin. You get two chances to see this amazing performance that celebrates the queen of rock ’n’ roll at either the Pantages in Tacoma or the Washington Center for the Performing Arts in Olympia. More amazing vocals are on stage in Piaf! The Show coming to Olympia in October. Focused on legendary Parisian chanteuse Edith Piaf, known as “the swallow of Montmartre,” the show follows the ragsto-riches story of the singer’s career through unforgettable songs, complemented by historical photographs from a bygone day.


Are current events getting you down? A night of laughter awaits with The Capitol Steps at the Pantages. “Putting the mock in democracy,” this performance will have you rolling in the aisles as Hillary Clinton sings a show tune, President Trump performs a rock ballad or Chris Christie dances ballet. This lighthearted show will certainly put a smile on your face. Once you get the taste for comedy, you may be interested in checking out other comedic offerings such as the semifinal round of the Seattle International Comedy Competition at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts, and stand-up star in the making Hari Kondabolu, who has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Late Show with David Letterman and who just released his second comedy album with major success.

bittersweet chocolates: local artisans share their passion for handmade sweets Deb Smith and Cindy Uhrich began exploring the idea of Since opening in September 2016, the duo has watched opening a small business long before retiring from South business grow beyond their expectations. Plans to expand Puget Sound Community College, where the two friends are already in the works and include a caramel collection worked for over 20 years. They wanted to remain active in the Olympia community while putting to use their unique, but complementary, backgrounds: Smith, as a talented instructor of Baking and Pastry Arts with a love for making chocolates; and Uhrich in events management. “So we set off to explore the world of chocolate in our area,” says Uhrich. “Two years later, after a dozen or so trips to chocolate shops in cities up and down I-5, researching the style of chocolates and chocolate shop, we thought we would be successful in Olympia. We went for it.” The two draw on their experiences, childhood memories and favorite foods for inspiration. Uhrich recounts that when they first sat down to create their flavor profiles, they categorized them—Downtown After Dark Collection, Coffee & Tea Collection, Garden & Spice Collection and their Nostalgia Collection; plus Lemon Tart, Peanut Butter, Donut, Coconut Rum, Malted Milk and Mint. “Favorites from our childhoods,” she says.

rhein haus german food in tacoma As you enter what was once the Titus Will auto dealership, you notice a complete transformation. The space is huge (approximately 14,000 square feet), but it has been redesigned to be cozy and warm. A massive fireplace fills the center of the room with wraparound seating. Accents include Belgian wood doors, crystal chandeliers, reclaimed SeaTac streetlights, four post lights from actor Michael Douglas’ former home, and green enamel sconces from an old Tacoma factory. Within this space is housed an on-site bakery that produces all of the restaurant’s breads, including pretzels, rye bread and desserts such as Berliners and strudel. An in-house charcuterie program produces at least a half-dozen daily sausage choices from a kitchen outfitted with a smokehouse. A good place to start your dining experience at Rhein Haus is with the Oktober sampler: a large variety of in-house smoked and cured meats, cheeses and rye bread. Other savory menu items include sausages and schnitzel. A ShowCase favorite is the pork schnitzel accompanied by apple slaw. The cutlet’s delightful crunchiness comes from a light pretzel breading, and then it’s served with a rich butter sauce complemented with lemon, capers, parsley and shallots. For dessert the restaurant creates fresh-made sweets daily. German chocolate cake tops our favorites list. Another decadent option is Banana Bavaroise, a flan-inspired dessert with peanuts, malted meringue and chocolate ganache. The on-site executive chef, Kelly Wilson, says of the restaurant’s quality German food: “We are consistently delivering good food and reaching new limits of what is possible. I’m really proud of what our team is accomplishing in such a small For additional Information: time.

That was the story for one of the original homesteaders on the lake, and the extended family continues to have a deep love of the land and the lake. The homesteader’s grandson, a retired surgeon, sparkles and lights up when sharing his family’s connection to the lake.

The vision for this home was to seize the connection with Mount Rainier and Clear Lake right outside the windows. The genuine stone fireplace reflects the rocks along the shoreline. The kitchen’s white marble has veins of green and blue mimicking the colors of the lake. Brazilian cherry floors and cherry cabinetry add warmth to the modern architecture.

7 trends to spice up your fall wardrobe This fall, fashion is a moving target, so let us do the pointing for you! Here’s the definitive list for spicing up your fall wardrobe. From the office to weekend wear, these trends are not to be missed. vEMILY HAPPY POWER RED From pop-of-color statement pieces to monochromatic head-to-toe looks, red is the official color of Fall 2017. Think bold, brilliant boots, coats, dresses, suits. “Lady in Red” will be ringing in your ears. AMERICANA Prepare for Western wear to be all the rage. Loud, bright and brash, these styles aren’t for your average cowboy! Boots, vests, denim and bandana accents are a few ways to dip your toe in the swimming hole. TRENCH COATS These nylon coats are practical, comfortable and easy-topack. They’re the perfect transitional piece for ever-changing Northwest fall weather. Oversized pieces and broad shoulders welcome.

BIG FLORALS A continuation of the fun spring and summer trend, largescale floral prints will be everywhere. Look similar to a curtain or upholstery? Then it’s a safe bet for fall. Consider repurposing lighter floral frocks, layering a sleek turtleneck or opaque tights underneath. METALS Do you prefer gold or silver? No matter—wear either, as long as it’s shiny. No subtlety here. Iridescence, sparkle and shine. Don a pair of glittery boots and let your inner starlet shine. VELVET Suiting up for a fall fundraiser or formal event? Find a soft velvet dress—bonus points for the still-popular mid-length—in a rich jewel tone, and it just may carry you all season.

VINTAGE-INSPIRED FURS If you’re a fur lover, this fall is a good time to peek into vintage boutiques or Grandma’s attic. Designers are featuring classic coats that appear to step from catalogs of eras gone by. Faux fur and shearling accents count too.
