Well, what is there to say about these three cats? If you don't know these guys, come learn your lessons. These are three of the most prolific jazz players in the history of STL. Our city has seen a lot of great jazz. From Scott Joplin to Miles Davis to Oliver Lake to Pat Metheny to Jeremy Davenport. These three men have played as much at a high level as anyone in the history of this city. They are an incredibly important part of the music culture in this town. (All American music starts with jazz.) Darrell played with Acoustik Element at Joe's recently and absolutely stole the show. Ptah plays various solo gigs and collaborations around town as a working musician but is most at home with this trio which has played together for about 40 years. Gary Sykes plays with different groups as well but again, these guys are his home and he is simply one of the best jazz drummers to ever live. These three guys happen to live in STL and we are very lucky to be able to host them at Joe's Cafe. We have wanted to do this for a long time and we finally get our chance.

Saunders Schultz (1927-2017) was a prominent St. Louis artist and among the founders of the concept of Architectural / Environmental Sculpture. He was cofounder of Scopia Studio with fellow St. Louisan William Severson (1924 - 1999), and contributed to nearly 300 monumental works over his career; these diverse sculptures are found throughout St. Louis, in 37 states, and around the world. 

This focused exhibition presents examples of drawings, paintings and sculpture that illustrate Schultz’s affinity for nature as his primary inspiration. The drawings and paintings in this exhibition reveal the complex ways in which Schultz captured the shapes of leaves, trees, flowing water, and in some cases capturing the concept of rushing air. Despite their small size, these pieces still convey the grace, complexity, and monumentality of the site-specific works for which Schultz is known.

The C. G. Jung Society of Saint Louis will show the film, L’Atalante, at First Congregational Church, 6501 Wydown Blvd., Clayton, Friday, Aug. 23, 7-9 pm.  L’Atalante (1934) often appears in lists of The Ten Best Films of all Time. It’s about the entanglement of Juliette and Jean, a newly married couple, and about all of us, our masculine/feminine souls, and our need for love, union, wholeness, fulfillment. The film (French, English subtitles) is a delight in itself, irrespective of any deeper meaning.

Union Avenue Opera presents Tom Cipullo’s Glory Denied

Four Performances: August 17, 18, 23, 24 at 8:00 p.m.

Based on the novel “Glory Denied” by Tom Philpott

Presented in English with English supertitles

America’s longest-held prisoner of war dreams of coming home. But home is a place he will not recognize. Follow the gut-wrenching saga of Colonel Jim Thompson as he transitions from the jungles of Southeast Asia to the tree-lined streets of suburban America. Glory Denied speaks to the plight of so many of our veterans who nobly fought for their country but face huge challenges when it comes to re-assimilating into society—and their longed-for normal lives—after service. This true story explores the unimaginable bravery asked of soldiers and the nature of hope itself. It is a story of a nation divided and a country that changed significantly in the decade of his imprisonment. Tom Cipullo’s Glory Denied made waves in opera circles when it premiered a decade ago and continues to do so today.

The Glory Denied cast of four includes David Walton (Albert, Albert Herring) as Younger Thompson, Peter Kendall Clark in his UAO debut as Older Thompson, Karina Brazas (Yum-Yum, The Mikado) as Younger Alyce, and Gina Galati (Donna Elvira, Don Giovanni) as Older Alyce. Schoonover conducts as St. Louis native Dean Anthony makes his UAO directorial debut.

To purchase tickets, visit our website or call the box office at (314) 361-2881. General admission adult tickets: $35, Reserved adult tickets: $45.
