Please join us in kicking off the Fall 2018 Honeysuckle Sweep Weeks! This event is free and open to the public. Allison Brown, Restoration Outreach Coordinator at Missouri Botanical Garden, will give a short talk on invasive Bush Honeysuckle followed by a half-mile restoration hike, which will highlight woodland areas that were once completely full of honeysuckle.

 

Bush honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) is an invasive plant species that degrades woodlands, fields, and stream banks into impenetrable thickets lacking ecological, economic, or recreational value.

 

Participants will learn how bush honeysuckle critically damages the natural ecosystem and decreases human enjoyment and recreation in our green spaces. Informative discussions during the event will share methods for home and landowners to manage bush honeysuckle on their own property.

 

Please park in the Bascom House parking lot. Participants are encouraged to wear closed toed shoes for the hike and to bring a reusable water bottle to reduce waste.

 

The Fall 2018 Honeysuckle Sweep Weeks will be held October 27th through November 11th for the general public, conservation enthusiasts, schools and municipalities interested in removing invasive bush honeysuckle plants in the St. Louis region.

Leverage Dance Theater will present an evening of immersive dance theater allowing the audience a unique experience as they follow the performers through the mazes, hallways, and stairwells of the newly renovated Intersect Arts Center. 

The show is inspired by the Halloween season, and is the second installment of the company’s sold-out, unOrdinary (2015).

As the quarters will be intimate, and audiences may, at times, feel visibly part of the performance. They are encouraged to dress in theme: preferably in something black, dark, creepy, or decaying.

Audiences should be prepared to move about in relative darkness, as they travel throughout the building and climb up and down two flights of stairs. This performance is rated PG and may not be suitable for sensory sensitive patrons.

This performance would not be possible without the support of Sports Medicine & Training Center and Intersect Arts Center. Financial support for this project is provided by the Regional Arts Commission and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.

Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books welcome National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow, who will discuss his new book, "Grant"!

 

Ticket Information:

 

- A $25 ticket admits one person and includes one autographed paperback copy of "Grant"

- A $30 ticket admits two people and includes one autographed paperback copy of "Grant," plus a $5 rebate towards the purchase of a second copy of "Grant" at the event

 

Tickets available at left-bank.com/chernow.

 

Ulysses S. Grant’s life has typically been misunderstood. All too often he is caricatured as a chronic loser and inept businessman, fond of drinking to excess; or as the triumphant but brutal Union general of the Civil War; or as a credulous and hapless president whose tenure came to symbolize the worst excesses of the Gilded Age. These stereotypes don’t come close to capturing adequately his spirit and the sheer magnitude of his monumental accomplishments. A biographer at the height of his powers, Chernow has produced a portrait of Grant that is a masterpiece, the first to provide a complete understanding of the general and president whose fortunes rose and fell with dizzying speed and frequency.

BOŽO VREĆO

“The artist of angelic voice, who heals the soul and opens the heart” - New York Times

Pure Live Music & Novella announce award-winning, world renowned Sevdalinka singer

BOŽO VREĆO

who will perform in St. Louis on

Friday, October 26, 2018, at 8:00 pm at

The Sheldon concert hall

3648 Washington Blvd, St. Louis, MO

 Božo Vrećo, superb performer, author, and composer of Sevdalinka, a traditional genre of folk music from Bosnia and Herzegovina, noted as a synonym of complete freedom by the New York Times.

 For over 50 years, no one has ever dared to make changes to the existing Sevdah and to write new lyrics inspired by the centuries-old Sevdah lyrics. Božo Vrećo, a renowned musician of the new generation, has been highlighted as the most interesting and best-known interpreter and songwriter of recent times.

This lyrical tenor with a huge vocal range, unusual voice and visual identity triggers storms of enthusiasm and inspires his audience. One the main proofs are his sold-out concerts in a well known concert halls and theater venues all over the world.

In a musical sense, Sevdalinka is characterized by a slow or moderate tempo and intense, emotional melodies. Sevdalinka songs are very elaborate, emotionally charged and are traditionally sung with passion and fervor. The combination of Oriental, European and Sephardic elements make this type of music stand out among other types of folk music from the Balkans. Just like a majority of Balkan folk music, Sevdalinka features very somber, minor-sounding modes, but unlike other types of Balkan folklore music it more intensely features minor second intervals, thus hinting at Oriental maqam and the Phrygian mode. As a result, the melodies are noted for leaving a strong melancholic feeling with the listener.

Božo Vrećo is a man and a woman, and this duality can be seen in all segments of his creation.

Tickets ($45.00) are on sale and available at the following: online www.thesheldon.org, by calling 314-534-1111 (MetroTix), or in person at the Fox Theater Box Office.
