 RAC'S 18TH ANNUAL SUMMER PRESENTATION, BRIGADOON Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

One of the most intriguing and delightful aspects of a musical show is its ability to open up a whole new world to both its audience and cast. The show that does this better than any other is BRIGADOON. This is a Scottish fantasy about a town that disappears into the Highland mist and returns for only one day every one hundred years. It includes the songs "Waitin' for My Dearie", "I'll Go Home with Bonnie Jean", "Come to Me, Bend to Me", "Almost Like Being in Love", "There But for You Go I", "The Heather on the Hill", and "My Mother's Weddin' Day".

ABOUT THE PLAY

As two American hikers explore the Scottish highlands they encounter something not on their map. They discover the lost town of Brigadoon, which, resulting from a miracle from God, comes to life for only one day every century. One of the Americans, Tommy Albright, happens to fall in love with a local girl, Fiona MacLaren. The problem is that if Tommy stays in the town for more than a day, he can never return home to New York. Not trusting his emotions, Tommy returns home to his fiancee, Jane Ashton, whom he really does not not want to marry. In the end, at the last minute, Tommy cancels his wedding and returns to Scotland. In another miracle, because Tommy's love for Fiona is so great, Brigadoon returns for another brief moment to allow Tommy to enter, never to return to the outside world.

Audition and rehearsal dates and locations will be posted just as soon as they have been determined. The play will be performed on July 18 and July 19, 2015 at 7:30 PM and there will be a Sunday matinee July 20, 2015 at 2:00 PM. Tickets will be $8.00 in advance at the Raytown Hy-Vee around June 1, 2015 and $10 at the door or on-line. On-line tickets will also go on sale about June 1.





 FOURTH ANNUAL RAYTOWN COMMUNITY BAND CHRISTMAS CONCERT Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

On December 21, 2014, the Raytown Community Symphonic Band will present the fourth annual concert of Christmas Music at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, 9349 E 65th Street, Raytown MO with the St. Matthew's Jazz Band at 3:30 PM. Our former conductor, Bob Cochran, resigned his position as conductor this year, and our new conductor is Eric Eckhoff who has drawn many excellent comments during his tenure this year.

The program for this year has not yet been released, but in the past it has been a mixture of new music, arrangements of traditional Christmas music, and jazz interpretations of standard Carols. I know you will enjoy this year's concert just as you have the past three years.

Usually, the mayor of Raytown puts in an appearance with a comedy routine. Come early, since seating is usually taken very quickly.

The Raytown Arts Council takes special pride in its sponsorship of the Raytown Community Symphonic band. Conductor Bob Cochran takes the podium for rehearsals at St. Matthewís Episcopal Church, 9349 E. 65th Street every Thursday night. The repertoire is amazing, the talent is superb, and the pleasure it shares with its audiences as well as with its performers strikes a harmonious chord for enriching the lives of so many.

The band door is always open to musicians who enjoy sharing their talents to make exceptional music for the enjoyment of others. Come join the group this year. Rehearsals began this season on Thursday, September 17, and continue on Thursdays for the rest of the season. So, dust off that horn case, get the lip in shape, and hustle over to a rehearsal. For more information, call 353-3593.

Two other groups that bear mention are the Raytown Community Choir and the KC Metro Menís Choir. Rehearsals are held at St. Paulís United Methodist Church in Independence, MO. Auditions are not required to become a member of either group. If you like to sing, and are interested in becoming a member of either (or both) the RCC or the KCMMC, call director Noel Fulkerson at 913-836-3516.
