PROARTS PRESENT SOUNDBOARD MUSIC TOUR | May 31, 2017

Calgary native Lana Henchell, graduated with her Doctoral degree in piano performance from McGill University. She received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in piano performance at the University of Calgary.

Her First Prize win at the Eckhardt-Gramatté National Piano Competition (for contemporary Canadian music) led to a six-week concert tour across Canada.

In addition to performing, Lana Henchell teaches privately and sessionally at the University of Calgary. She is an avid adjudicator—giving masterclasses and clinics around the province. Currently, Lana Henchell is spearheading a performance and touring program—Soundboard Music Tour—which aims to promote classical music, offer educational enrichment to aspiring musicians and create awareness of the arts in Alberta.

This concert—part of the second Soundboard Tour—will feature students and/or teachers from various studios around the city. More information available online at proartssociety.ca.

 

THE RBC EMERGING DIRECTOR’S SHOWCASE | June 1 & 2, 2017

Meet Calgary’s next great director! 

Following the final show of our season we will once again present the work of an aspiring, up and coming young director. The RBC Emerging Director’s Showcase is a unique opportunity for Lunchbox Theatre to provide mentorship to an emerging Calgary artist, and for our audiences to have the opportunity to see the work of Calgary’s next great director.

“Ride” by Jane Bodie

A man and a women wake up in bed together- naked- and neither can remember how they got there. Or who the other is. In the harsh light of the morning after, they attempt to make sense of what may or may not have happened between them and a complex snapshot of modern relationships gradually comes into focus.

Visit Lunchbox Theatre’s website for more information and to purchase tickets at www.lunchboxtheatre.com.
