Lecture | Fourteenth Colony: The Forgotten Story of the Gulf South During America's Revolutionary Era (virtual)


In this lecture, historian Mike Bunn offers the first comprehensive history of the British colony of West Florida. For a host of reasons, including the fact that West Florida did not rebel against the British government, the colony has long been dismissed as a loyal but inconsequential fringe outpost, if considered at all. But the colony's history showcases a tumultuous political scene featuring a halting attempt at instituting representative government; a host of bold and colorful characters; a compelling saga of struggle and perseverance in the pursuit of financial stability; and a dramatic series of battles on land and water which brought about the end of its days under the Union Jack.

Concert | A Passage to Improv - Musings on Passages by Britten, Ravel, and Stravinsky (virtual)


Composer and pianist David Haney and multi instrumentalist Dave Storrs present a revolutionary way to explore classical music. Most compositions are developed using some degree of improvisation. By playing (experimenting) with some of the great passages of music from Britten, Ravel, and Stravinsky, Haney and Storrs present a window into the rare hybrid world of composed and improvised music, in which both disciplines inspire each other. Enjoy this modern look at classical music live from Oregon.

Amber, Lorraine, and Kay, three generations of North Dublin women, find themselves suddenly facing the unexpected in this “warm slice-of-life tale.” (The New York Times). Young Amber’s case of indigestion grows into something more, while her mother Lorraine reluctantly attempts therapist-suggested self-care, and Grandmother Kay struggles with a personal itch while adjusting to life as a caretaker for her beloved Gem. In this hilarious and poignant award-winning work, three women find strength in one another and discover the beauty and complexity of family. By Elaine Murphy Directed by Marc Atkinson Borrull Starring Brenda Meaney, Lauren O’Leary, and Marsha Mason
