Macy's Arts Sampler Returns to Oxford Community Arts Center with Bach, Boombox, and Opera.
Oxford, Ohio, March 18, 2014 - On April 12 Macy's Arts Sampler will return with free art all across the greater Cincinnati area - this includes Oxford! Discover the arts with free theater, music, dance, crafts, museum tours and more. The Oxford Community Arts Center will host Bach and Boombox with Nat Chaitkin at 1:30pm. At 3:00pm ROKCincy will present a fully staged, 40-minute version of Rossini's classic comedy "The Barber of Seville" in the Ballroom. This performance is FREE and open to the public thanks to Macy's and ArtsWave
The Barber of Seville surrounds the young and determined Count Almaviva, who has fallen for the talented and witty Rosina. But, Rosina is kept hidden by her strict guardian, Dr. Bartolo. They'll need all their cunning, and more than a few tricks, courtesy of Figaro, the barber of Seville, to pull off an escape. Sung in English and Italian, this show stuns with familiar music, vocal fireworks, and high energy.
ROKCincy is a non-profit program, which seeks to introduce local children to the operatic and musical repertoire through a welcoming and engaging first experience as audience members, and to give developing professional singers and pianists and opportunity to hone their performance skills. The musicians donate their preparation and performance time, and ROKCincy provides free, fully staged performances and accompanying curriculum guides.
Bach and Boombox with Nat Chaitkin is the excitement of great music performed live, in a relaxed, casual setting. Nat will play pieces by Bach and other classical composers on his cello, and participants listen to recordings by pop and jazz artists like the Beastie Boys and Miles Davis on the boombox. Guests are welcome to bring their own iPod or MP3 device to plug in to Nat's Boombox and play some of their own favorite music.
