TIMESLOTS WILL BE RELEASED SOON

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

August 20-September 12, 2015
Adapted by Christopher Sergal from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Harper Lee

When the courts appoints their father to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman, the children are soon caught up in lethal adult conflicts surrounding class and prejudice that bring them ultimately to understand the meaning of courage and compassion.

More info & tickets at (360)786-0151 or harlequinproductions.org/something-wicked-improv. You can also order tickets thru Facebook with the link at the top of the page. (Only for people who ♥ convenience)

Always wanted to harmonize with others? Can’t find your part? This workshop is for you! We’ll demonstrate the four standard vocal parts in harmony singing, and explain how to find them using a simple number system. We’ll show you how to follow these parts through the scale, until you can visualize them, as well as hear them. Lastly, we’ll put this new knowledge to good use by learning to harmonize on some simple songs together. All examples and songs are notated using the number system introduced at the beginning of the workshop–you don’t need to read music. Recording devices okay. For those of you who came to last year’s workshop, there will be a special section on duet singing, with new repertoire.

Wine Tasting @ the Medicine Creek Winery

2015-06-06 to 2016-06-30

12:00 pm to 5:00 pm More Info

Location: Medicine Creek Winery 947 Old Pacific Hwy SE Olympia, WA

Open every Saturday and Sunday from Noon until 5pm.

We are a boutique winery located on a farm in the Nisqually Valley, near Olympia, Washington. The farm is the head waters for the Medicine Creek and the creek eventually joins with the McCallister Creek and then into Puget Sound.

The Nisqually Valley is an area steeped in deep historical significance and is thought to be the original homestead of James McCallister, who settled the Nisqually Valley in the mid 1800's. The building itself was constructed almost a quarter century ago, originally for direct sales of farm produce. Since that time, the barn has undergone many different uses with a SLOW transformation to its present condition. This structure represents the lifelong efforts of the winemaker, his family and a handful of his dedicated friends. Together they have blended their talents and creativity resulting in a unique and warm environment.

Located in the barn is the tasting room, wine processing area, barrel room and dance floor. Visiting the award wining tasting room is like stepping back in time to a 1800's vintage New Orleans brothel. From the tasting room you will be able to view the barrel room and dance floor and, if your lucky, observe the wine making process.The barn has limited availability for your own functions.

To Kill a Mockingbird
August 20-September 12, 2015
Adapted by Christopher Sergal from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Harper Lee

Harper Lee's only book, To Kill a Mockingbird, won her a Pulitzer Prize in 1960 and instantly became an American classic. Set in the depths of the Great Depression in Alabama, the story focuses on six-year-old Scout Finch, who lives with her older brother, Jem, and their widowed father, Atticus, a lawyer. When the courts appoints their father to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman, the children are soon caught up in lethal adult conflicts surrounding class and prejudice that bring them ultimately to understand the meaning of courage and compassion.

Into the Fog: Dennis Hastings Sings Mel Torme with Keith Henson Jazz Octet

8:00 pm to 11:00 pm More Info

Location: Rhythm & Rye 311 Capitol Way N Olympia

During the mid-1950’s singer Mel Tormé--known as “The Velvet Fog”--and arranger Marty Paich made a series of legendary and consummate recordings of great American songs.

Two local musicians share a passion for the music of Tormé and Paich, Olympia based singer Dennis Hastings and Tacoma bandleader Keith Henson. Hastings loves Tormé so much he commissioned copies of the original Paich arrangements from the recordings so that he might perform them himself. Henson is also a Tormé devotee whose five-horn, eight piece band regularly plays Marty Paich arrangements at twice monthly performances at the B Sharp Coffee House in downtown Tacoma.

Paich backed Tormé with a distinctive eight-horn, bass and drums band called the “Dek-tette,” which included a tuba.
Recently two members from Henson’s band suggested augmenting the octet for a couple special performances so Hastings could bring his Paich arrangements and sing with the band.

Hastings and Henson couldn’t move fast enough.
Regular Henson Octet members will back Hastings, including Tacoma’s premier alto saxophone soloist Tracy Knoop, (who played with Tormé), Grammy Award winning jazz trumpeter Tracey D. Hooker, pianist Dr. David Deacon-Joyner, PLU Director of Jazz Studies, and drummer Steve Bentley. Joining the octet will be lead trumpet player Morris Northcutt, tuba master Paul Evans, and trombonist Don Gardner.

Music includes compositions by Ellington (I’m Gonna Go Fishin’), Rogers and Hammerstein (The Surrey with the Fringe On Top), Cole Porter (Too Darn Hot), Gershwin (Nice Work If You Can Get It), and other selections from the Great American Songbook.

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

Set in the depths of the Great Depression in Alabama, the story focuses on six-year-old Scout Finch, who lives with her older brother, Jem, and their widowed father, Atticus, a lawyer. When the courts appoints their father to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman, the children are soon caught up in lethal adult conflicts surrounding class and prejudice that bring them ultimately to understand the meaning of courage and compassion.

Wine Tasting @ the Medicine Creek Winery

2015-06-06 to 2016-06-30

12:00 pm to 5:00 pm More Info

Location: Medicine Creek Winery 947 Old Pacific Hwy SE Olympia, WA

Open every Saturday and Sunday from Noon until 5pm.

We are a boutique winery located on a farm in the Nisqually Valley, near Olympia, Washington. The farm is the head waters for the Medicine Creek and the creek eventually joins with the McCallister Creek and then into Puget Sound.

The Nisqually Valley is an area steeped in deep historical significance and is thought to be the original homestead of James McCallister, who settled the Nisqually Valley in the mid 1800's. The building itself was constructed almost a quarter century ago, originally for direct sales of farm produce. Since that time, the barn has undergone many different uses with a SLOW transformation to its present condition. This structure represents the lifelong efforts of the winemaker, his family and a handful of his dedicated friends. Together they have blended their talents and creativity resulting in a unique and warm environment.

Located in the barn is the tasting room, wine processing area, barrel room and dance floor. Visiting the award wining tasting room is like stepping back in time to a 1800's vintage New Orleans brothel. From the tasting room you will be able to view the barrel room and dance floor and, if your lucky, observe the wine making process.The barn has limited availability for your own functions.

We’ve all been there: the point of no return. Sometimes it’s set in motion by circumstances outside our control and at other times, we initiate. Whether it happened in a flash or played out over several years, one thing is certain: the world as we know it has shifted. What ideas, perspectives and innovations were uncovered and how are they shaping our lives? The theme of TEDxOlympia 2015 is Point of No Return. Our talks and performances explore what unfolds when we realize there’s no turning back—and the surprises we discover before, during and after that threshold. Join us for a full day of ideas, performances and connection!

Wine Tasting @ the Medicine Creek Winery

2015-06-06 to 2016-06-30

12:00 pm to 5:00 pm More Info

Location: Medicine Creek Winery 947 Old Pacific Hwy SE Olympia, WA

Open every Saturday and Sunday from Noon until 5pm.

We are a boutique winery located on a farm in the Nisqually Valley, near Olympia, Washington. The farm is the head waters for the Medicine Creek and the creek eventually joins with the McCallister Creek and then into Puget Sound.

The Nisqually Valley is an area steeped in deep historical significance and is thought to be the original homestead of James McCallister, who settled the Nisqually Valley in the mid 1800's. The building itself was constructed almost a quarter century ago, originally for direct sales of farm produce. Since that time, the barn has undergone many different uses with a SLOW transformation to its present condition. This structure represents the lifelong efforts of the winemaker, his family and a handful of his dedicated friends. Together they have blended their talents and creativity resulting in a unique and warm environment.

Located in the barn is the tasting room, wine processing area, barrel room and dance floor. Visiting the award wining tasting room is like stepping back in time to a 1800's vintage New Orleans brothel. From the tasting room you will be able to view the barrel room and dance floor and, if your lucky, observe the wine making process.The barn has limited availability for your own functions.

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

Instructor: Dalene Spricks
Date: Wednesday Sept. 23rd
Time: 6 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Cost: $122
The class fee is $42 and the materials fee is $80. The materials fee includes a kit for each student to keep which contains materials to make a loaf of soap in class (oils, lye, distilled water, essential oils, etc.) and the equipment necessary to make the soap including a digital scale, stick blender, bowl, container for lye water, cardboard mold, liner, gloves, etc. Please note that equipment and tools used in soap-making that come in contact with lye cannot be used for food preparation afterwards.
Registration closes: Sept. 18th
Skill level: beginner
Materials provided by student: Close-toed shoes, long sleeves and long pants
Class Description: This is a beginning-level traditional soap-making course designed to introduce students to the art and science of soap-making using a simple all natural recipe with materials that are readily available. Join Dalene for a fun evening of hands on soap-making. You will learn basics of lye safety, view a live demonstration, and then try your hand at the soap making process. At the end of class, you will leave with your own loaf of soap (which will need to cure) and the basic equipment necessary to make more soap at home, including a digital scale, stick blender, bowl, container for lye water, cardboard mold, liner, gloves, etc. This class focuses on cold process soap making which uses the chemical reaction of fatty acids and alkali to produce soap. No external heat is applied once the ingredients have been mixed thus it is called cold processed.

Wine Tasting @ the Medicine Creek Winery

2015-06-06 to 2016-06-30

12:00 pm to 5:00 pm More Info

Location: Medicine Creek Winery 947 Old Pacific Hwy SE Olympia, WA

Open every Saturday and Sunday from Noon until 5pm.

We are a boutique winery located on a farm in the Nisqually Valley, near Olympia, Washington. The farm is the head waters for the Medicine Creek and the creek eventually joins with the McCallister Creek and then into Puget Sound.

The Nisqually Valley is an area steeped in deep historical significance and is thought to be the original homestead of James McCallister, who settled the Nisqually Valley in the mid 1800's. The building itself was constructed almost a quarter century ago, originally for direct sales of farm produce. Since that time, the barn has undergone many different uses with a SLOW transformation to its present condition. This structure represents the lifelong efforts of the winemaker, his family and a handful of his dedicated friends. Together they have blended their talents and creativity resulting in a unique and warm environment.

Located in the barn is the tasting room, wine processing area, barrel room and dance floor. Visiting the award wining tasting room is like stepping back in time to a 1800's vintage New Orleans brothel. From the tasting room you will be able to view the barrel room and dance floor and, if your lucky, observe the wine making process.The barn has limited availability for your own functions.

TIMESLOTS WILL BE RELEASED SOON

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.
