Cascades Blog: A World’s Fair

The Loudoun Symphonic Winds ensemble presents “A World’s Fair,” a performance of a variety of pieces from around the world, on April 29 at 7:30 p.m. at Potomac Falls High School. Bob Thurston, former chief arranger for the U.S. Air Force Band, is the guest conductor.

The performance includes “Scenes from the Louvre” by Norman Dello Joio, as well as two original works by Thurston, a composer and arranger who created a version of John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” for a duet by two masters of the strings—cellist Yo-Yo Ma and ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro. (If you’re curious about that partnership, you can find a link to the performance atbobthurston.com/recordings.)

Tickets for “A World’s Fair” are available at the door before the show; donations are accepted for admission and refreshments. For more information, visit lcbandinc.org.

Plenty of clues

“Proposal is Murder,” an interactive murder mystery dinner theatre show written by CountrySide resident Terry Smith, ends its 2017 StageCoach Theatre Company run with an April 23 performance at O’Faolain’s Irish Pub and Restaurant in Sterling. A marriage proposal and “hysterical government shenanigans” play a role in the proceedings, and “no one is safe from the reaches of the government,” according to the StageCoach pre-show information. Reservations can be made online at stagecoachtc.com.
