Duo Sonidos brings together the talents of violinist, William Knuth and guitarist, Adam Levin. Based in Boston and Madrid, the duo is at the vanguard of the guitar chamber music world. In November 2010 Duo Sonidos released their debut album Duo Sonidos, including works by Manuel de Falla, Astor Piazzolla, Salvador Brotons, and the premiere of a recent commission by Eduardo Morales-Caso. Duo Sonidos is a bid to amalgamate the capabilities of two classically ambassadorial instruments basic to the fabric of contemporary and classical music alike, and to encourage and imprint an aural image of this chamber combination in the musical ear of the listener. There is something new here, as well as something attractive and approachable to the crossover classical music audience that may not otherwise be interested in classical performances.
Kwanzaa is an African American, Pan-African holiday that focuses on family, community, and culture. Created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, Professor of African Studies at California State University, Long Beach, its name comes from the Swahili phrase "matunda ya kwanza," which means "first fruits." The holiday draws upon traditions of first harvest celebrations in Africa. The text of Nguzo Saba Suite is by Glenn Burleigh. It is a mixture of scriptural excerpts (and sometimes scriptural paraphrases) and original words. The text is a reflection of Glenn's personal understanding of the Kwanzaa principles, his Christian faith, and his desire to connect his text in an empathetic way with contemporary issues, concerns, and needs, especially those affecting the African American community. Join us for a truly inspiring event!
All evening shows are at 7:30 pm and are held in the Main Stage Theatre except where noted.

One of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies follows the romantic adventures of Viola and her twin, both shipwrecked in the enchanted dukedom of Illyria. This time-honored story of cross-dressing, practical jokes, and mistaken identities alternates between the absurd and the heartfelt, all in the name of love. The story is one that Shakespeare's audiences have come to expect: a girl washed up on a beach, disguises herself as a boy, falls in love with a duke, and for his sake woos a lady, who then naturally falls in love with the girl-disguised-as-boy. Come see Twelfth Night and find out for yourself "If music be the food of love!"
