Church on The Street Fundraising Campaign

     The Church on the Street is conducting its fundraising campaign commencing 1 November 2014 to 1 June 2015. The purpose of the campaign is to pay for the church and adjoining facitlites. The church and facilities have been owned for many years by an indididual owner and he has informed the Pastor and the Board of Directors he must settle his estate soon.The owner has been so gracious to our church and we look forward to owing the church with your help...
     As many of you may already know, The Church on the Street has a great history. In 1880, the "Lone Star" Baptist Church was started in Prescott. This was the First Baptist Church to be established in the Arizona Territory. In 1884, the church was moved from the high elevation site due to the long uphill climb to the church. Thus, the building was placed on log rollers and today sits on the corner of Cortez and Carleton Streets. We are using the same building that came down the hill! The Reverend James Taylor has been the pastor for the last twenty-four years. The bibical foundation of the church comes from the scripture found in Isaiah, Chapter 58. A plan is underway to have engraved bricks laid along a walkway with the names of contributors. Be a part of history and may God Bless You.

Smoki Museum Exhibit: "An Essential Relationship"

 
“An Essential Relationship:
Amateurs and Professionals in Central Arizona Archaeology”
Exhibit Opening:  December 6th, 1:00pm
 
 
 
From the 1920’s until today, groups of individuals have pursued archaeological activities in the Central Arizona region.  While professional archaeologists can bring a unique level of sophistication to these explorations of the past through the science-based work they perform in the field, in the lab and in the library; amateurs have often led the way in prehistoric research.  Although they often lack the formal education and training possessed by professionals, these amateurs frequently offer surprisingly sophisticated skills and remarkable respect for the past.  Plus, what they may lack in traditional credentials is often more than compensated for through innate interest, enthusiasm and, yes, the love they may bring to the work.
 
Through the information we present and the stories we tell, exhibit visitors will see that Central Arizona serves as a particularly good example of how amateur archaeologists working in their own or in conjunction with professionals have made, and can continue to make major contributions to knowledge and understanding of the past.  Publication available in Museum Gift Shop.  Exhibit runs through May 31, 2015.
 
 
General Admission:
Adults:  $7.00
Seniors:  $6.00

The Grapes of Wrath / Live Theater

A powerful and deeply affecting stage version of one of the masterpieces of American literature. It is the story about the Joad family and their flight from the dust bowl of Oklahoma west to California where they hope for a better life.

Michael Londra’s Celtic Fire

From a tiny spark, Michael Londra’s Celtic Fire now travels the world in many forms. With 100% live music, dance and song, the show generates an electric atmosphere that sweeps audiences away to Ireland, its culture, its land, its pubs, its music and its heart.

The music of Celtic Fire show is traditional at its core, with all of Ireland’s national instruments, the fiddle driving frenetic reels, our great drum, the bodhran beating out the driving rhythms of the band, the plaintive uilleann pipes calling back to days of yore with beautiful and haunting slow airs. The dancers take the stage with brilliant flashes of speed, youth and exuberance. All of our dancers while young, have performed from an early age having won many Irish dance awards and performed around the world. Their jigs and reels performed are a joy to watch.Many audiences want to get to join in… many actually do!

Irish dance has enjoyed a spectacular revival in recent years with shows like Riverdance; however, Celtic Fire doesn’t rehash the art form, but strips it to its bare essentials. Irish music and dance has learned to mix with other culture to create new and innovative dances and sounds but at its core, this is what Ireland is all about. It is the real thing!

The evening is tied together by Michael’s clarion vocals and easy charm. You are guaranteed a great night out.

Music: Sergei Prokofiev
Libretto: Sergei Prokofiev, Sergei Radlov and Adrian Piotrovsky
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich
Cast: Alexander Volchkov (Romeo), Anna Nikulina (Juliet)

In Verona, the rivalry between the Capulets and the Montagues brings bloodshed to the city. When the Capulets organise a masked ball in honour of their daughter Juliet, Romeo Montague and his friend Mercutio attend incognito because of the hatred that tears the two houses apart. Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love, and are distraught when they realise they belong to rival families.
 
William Shakespeare's timeless story, written in 1595, is brought to the stage through breathtaking choreography and Sergei Prokofiev’s much-loved score. With its famous melodies, rhythmic variety and universal theme, this story of impossible love remains an all-time favourite, and is one of the world’s most popular ballets.

Stellar performances by Alexander Volchkov and Anna Nikulina illuminate this masterpiece, making the immortal tale of the lovers of Verona an unforgettable experience. Runtime: 135 minutes.

General Admission:  $15
Students/Staff (With ID): $10

Sculpting from Nature

Renowned wildlife artist Ken Rowe will discuss and demonstrate his tips and techniques for sculpting wildlife. Ken has called Sedona home since December 1995. Born in Arizona, he was influenced by drawing and painting with his mother as well as his love of the outdoors. Ken’s first introduction to wildlife art was in the field of taxidermy. For 14 years, he and Monica owned and operated a successful taxidermy studio during which time Ken submerged himself in a profession that demanded an intense study of anatomy and wildlife physiology. Ken believes this in-depth knowledge is an extremely important quality to possess as a wildlife artist. He has been a full-time, award-winning sculptor for the past 19 years; the scale of his work ranges from small maquettes to large monuments.

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job.

But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

Father Kino: Journey to Discovery

Join Dr. Barbara Jaquay at the Phippen Museum on Saturday March 28 at 1pm at the Phippen Museum as she discusses the journeys of Father Kino.  Through his many diaries and letters it is obvious that Father Kino was more than a missionary who worked among the Native Americans. While his name is often associated with the San Xavier del Bac Mission, he was also a skilled mathematician and cartographer. He made more than 40 expeditions during his life while living in what was called Pimería Alta. His travels resulted in the first detailed map of the area and information on the people and cultures of the region.  With a Ph.D. in geography, it comes as no surprise that Barbara Jaquay has hosted visitors from many countries and that she herself has traveled to over forty, including India, Bhutan, Nepal, China, Cuba, and out-of-the way islands such as Robinson Crusoe, Easter Island and the Galapagos. She has even hiked the Himalayas in pursuit of furthering her knowledge of archaeological, historical, and geographical mysteries. Jaquay has written several publications on topics concerning Middle America and Arizona Native Americans. Currently, she is working on several Arizona geographical projects and publications. This program is present with the cooperation of the Arizona Humanities.

An Evening with Bruce Hornsby

Bruce Hornsby's work displays a creative iconoclasm that's been a constant in the artist's two-and-a-half decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when "The Way It Is"–the title track of his 1986 debut album–became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson. Hornsby's performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.

Every ticket to this performance includes a copy of Solo Concerts, Bruce's new 2-CD live album!

Cowboys and Cowgirls: Icons of the West

Few symbols have been more durable than the American cowboy. Join Prof. Betsy Fahlman for a discussion on this American Icon at the Phippen Museum on Saturday April 11 at 1pm.  This program will give an overview of this populist figure, whose image was first defined by painters Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Also important to the story are brave cowgirls and the Mexican vaqueros. Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show showcased mythic cowboy culture, with singing cowboys, pretty girls on horses, and plenty of Indians in his internationally popular extravaganzas that for many defined the American West. Arizona’s contribution to this chronicle is significant, and includes Lon Megargee (the state’s original cowboy artist). Contemporary artists continue to portray this tradition.  Betsy Fahlman is a Professor of Art History at Arizona State University.  An authority on the art history of Arizona, her books include New Deal Art in Arizona (2009) and The Cowboy's Dream: The Mythic Life and Art of Lon Megargee (2002). This program is present with the cooperation of the Arizona Humanities. This program is present with the cooperation of the Arizona Humanities

National Theatre Live - The Hard Problem

Acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) returns to the National Theatre with his highly-anticipated new play The Hard Problem, directed by Nicholas Hytner (Othello, Hamlet, One Man, Two Guvnors).

Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brainscience institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is "the hard problem" which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the fMRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.

This is a satellite broadcast of the National Theatre Live.

Met Opera - Mascagni and Leoncavallo

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio inPagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

Advanced:  $32/$36/$45
Door: $30/$34/$45
For over 75 continuous years the Sons of the Pioneers have been “the premiere Western singing group of all time.” (as described by the Western Music Hall of Fame.)  Elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame, Cowboy Hall of Fame, Western Music Hall of Fame, Texas Swing Hall of Fame and designated a National Treasure by the Smithsonian Institution, the Pioneers have become as legendary as the American West they represent. Their signature songs Cool Water” and “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” were placed in the Grammy Hall of Fame.  Other songs, such as “Ghost Riders in the Sky,” have become part of the very fabric of the American West.
Founded by Roy Rogers and the gifted songwriters Bob Nolan and Tim Spencer, the group garnered national and international recognition through appearances in more than 90 films, radio shows, recording and television appearances. As each prior member retired there has always been a carefully selected replacement enabling the group to keep its identity continuous and unbroken.  The sound today is still the sound which inspired the foundation of numerous other Western singing groups that followed.

National Theatre Live - Man and Superman

Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, Schindler's List, Oedipus at the National Theatre) plays Jack Tanner in this exhilarating reinvention of Bernard Shaw's witty, provocative classic.

Jack Tanner, celebrated radical thinker and rich bachelor, seems an unlikely choice as guardian to the alluring heiress, Ann. But she takes it in her assured stride and, despite the love of a poet, she decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary.

Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his.

A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live. 

This is a satellite broadcast of the National Theatre Live.
