  4. Raisin' Cane: A Harlem Renaissance Odyssey

    The O'Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University
    St Paul, MN 55105
    Call: 651-690-6700

    Featuring Jasmine Guy and the Avery Sharpe Trio. A Women of Substance Event.

    Inspired by the classic 1923 Jean Toomer novel "Cane" and works by the musicians, composers, poets, and actors of the Harlem Renaissance

    In the American Black community, during the years leading up to the Harlem Renaissance, there was a sense of building artistic expression. Outlets and avenues for its poets, musicians, novelists, artists, and actors were few, but in 1918, as the first great World War concluded and thousands of African-American soldiers returned home victorious, this mountain of artistic expression was now ready to explode.

    The words and thoughts of Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Zora Neale Hurston, W.E.B. Du Bois and many others, became the voice of a new generation of African-Americans - looking forward, but still struggling with the past and present. These thoughts, songs, and images are woven into a panoramic experience that spans this extraordinary outpouring of artistic endeavor. "Raisin’ Cane" is a window on this critical point in our history.

    Starring the award winning actress, singer, and dancer Jasmine Guy, a modern day Griot, and the acclaimed Avery Sharpe Trio, "Raisin’ Cane" celebrates and honors the legendary voices of the Harlem Renaissance through text, song, music, movement, and imagery.

    The O'Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University
    St Paul, MN 55105
    Call: 651-690-6700

    A Women of Substance Event

    Singer and songwriter Rosanne Cash and her band’s new show celebrates the release of her much anticipated new album, The River & The Thread (January 2014, Blue Note Records). The album is a collection of new original songs that connect and re-connect Rosanne to the American South, the place of her birth and the home of her ancestors. Rosanne follows her acclaimed Grammy nominated and award winning album The List (2009) with her own poetic survey of places and people of The South on these beautiful and varied songs written with her collaborator, musical director and husband, John Leventhal.

    Written with her longtime collaborator, producer, guitarist and husband John Leventhal, the album reflects journeys through the Southern states, with stops at William Faulkner's house; Dockery Farms, the plantation where Howlin' Wolf and Charley Patton worked and sang; her father's boyhood home in Dyess, Arkansas; the Sun Records Studio in Memphis; and the Mississippi Delta, with its memories of the birth of the Civil Rights era and the haunting gravesite of the great bluesman Robert Johnson.

    40th Anniversary
    Forty & Fierce
    A Women of Substance Event

    Sweet Honey in the Rock has maintained a rich and distinguished legacy as one of the most revered and treasured a cappella ensembles in contemporary music. Over the past four decades the Grammy-nominated group has stayed true to its adventurous and diverse mixture of blues, African, jazz, gospel and R&B music, with more recent excursions into symphonic music and collaborations into the dance/theater genre. And this year they are celebrating and presenting "Sweet Honey in the Rock - 40th Anniversary - Forty & Fierce," their most adventurous live performance presentation in their illustrious career.

    "Forty & Fierce" features their first collaborative partnership with noted Director/Choreographer Dianne McIntyre. The show is wrapped visually and contextually in a scrapbook motif that will take audiences on a musical and visual journey back through the group's inception and humble beginnings in 1973. They will perform a series of newly arranged medleys and many of their most popular songs, as well as retrace their personal recollections of memorable cultural and historical moments that have anchored and shaped the ensemble's resilient spirit and legacy. "Forty & Fierce" is designed to engage and entertain audiences from the time they enter the theater until they leave, including a special pre-show presentation, "SHE-ROCKS 5 RADIO," a musical retrospective hosted by Epatha Merkerson that will feature songs culled from their 23 album releases.

  7. Terri Lyne Carrington's Mosaic Project

    The O'Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University
    St Paul, MN 55105
    Call: 651-690-6700

    A Women of Substance Event featuring Terri Lyne Carrington with Rachel Z and Lizz Wright.

    For more than two decades, drummer, producer and vocalist Terri Lyne Carrington has crafted an eclectic brand of jazz that incorporates elements of bebop, soul, funk and much more. Since her debut in 1989, the GRAMMY®-nominated artist has established a reputation for assembling artists of varying styles and perspectives to create music that adheres to the traditions of jazz yet speaks to a much broader and more diverse audience. Carrington brings this same diverse sensibility to The Mosaic Project, an album that once again gathers a myriad of voices and crystallizes them into a multi-faceted whole that far outweighs the sum of its parts.

    “Everything about this recording is about making a larger picture out of many various elements,” says Carrington, who produced the 14-song set. “I assembled several friends – most of whom I’ve performed with in the past, and all of whom bring their own individual story – to help me create the big picture. For as talented as each of them are as individuals, when I put them all together, I have a much greater musical story – one that can be told in an interesting and compelling way.”

Their sister, Katharine, is an often overlooked member of the Wright family, and her contribution to the family and their success is examined in this work through song and dance. The creators' personal family legends and aviation heroics are also woven into the oblique narrative.

    A family holiday tradition returns to The O'Shaughnessy!

    For novices to the holiday ballet, the story begins on Christmas Eve. We join a young girl, Clara, her mischievous brother, Fritz, and their family hosting a Christmas party. A latecomer to the party is Clara’s mysterious Godfather Drosselmeyer. He presents her with a marvelous gift, a Nutcracker doll.

    As Clara goes to sleep that night, we are transported into her dream of the Rat King fighting the Nutcracker and his army of toy soldiers. The Nutcracker Prince escorts Clara through an enchanted snow-covered forest and on to his Kingdom of the Sweets where Clara accepts the throne from the Sugar Plum Fairy.
