Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor DreamcoatJul 24, 2013 - Aug 4, 2013

Description:

Secondary Characters, a local non-profit musical theatre company, presents Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat from July 24 - August 4, proudly sponsored by Soprema. "Way, way back many centuries ago, not long after the Bible began" the Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and Elvis-inspired rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. TICKETS: 604-391-7469 (Centre Box Office) $12-$20 Wednesdays to Saturdays - 7:30pm Saturdays and Sundays - 2:00pm INFORMATION: www.secondarycharacters.org

Heartiest Greetings All! I'm very pleased to invite you to a concert I'm giving in the Rotary Room of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Friday August 23rd at 7:00 p.m. It is my first time playing in the new centre so I am very excited! There will be music by Haydn, Chopin, Brahms, and Debussy, there will be me playing the piano, there will be some stories about composers and being a musician, and there will hopefully be you there to listen (the most important part!). For a little more information about what I do, please read on below. Admission is by donation, Best wishes everybody! Pianist and composer Jesse Plessis recently obtained a Master of Music degree (Performance and Literature) from Brandon University where he studied piano with Megumi Masaki and composition with Patrick Carrabre. His Bachelor of Music degree is from the University of Lethbridge where he studied piano with Deanna Oye and composition with Arlan Schultz and Rolf Boon. Plessis has been awarded prizes both in piano and composition, and has performed as a guest artist with several ensembles including the Musaeus String Quartet, members of the Land’s End Chamber Ensemble, and the International Piano Ensemble. He has had the opportunity to give the Canadian premieres of works by Marcel Bergmann, Kaija Saariaho, John Corigliano, Nico Muhly, and Kjartan Olafsson. Recent performances include those with New West Theatre, at the Casalmaggiore Festival in Italy, the Dark Music Days Festival in Iceland, and at the Banff Centre. Jesse is also one half of the Hansen-Plessis Piano Duo (alongside Bente Hansen, University of Lethbridge) which explores the possibilities of popular music in the concert hall alongside the classical repertoire. Their performance of Jesse’s piano-duo arrangement of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the seminal psychedelic rock album by The Beatles, received an acclaimed premiere in August 2011, and will receive a reprise on September 21st, 2013 at the University of Lethbridge. A sometime conductor, Plessis has directed performances with the Brandon University New Music Ensemble (BUNME), the Brandon University Orchestra, and several musical theatre productions.
