Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?” TV Guidehas more concisely called him a “Renaissance Man” but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be “workaholic.”When he’s not traveling, Rollins prefers a to keep a relentless schedule full of work, with gigs as an actor, author, DJ, voice-over artist and TV show host to name a few of the roles that keep his schedule full. For many years, Henry Rollins has used his camera to document his travels around the world. Join Henry for an intimate evening as he tells the stories behind the photos he’s taken, from Baghdad to Timbuktu. Rollins will present a special performance drawing on experiences and his vast archive of photographs. “For many years, I have documented my travels all over the world with a camera.

Now and then, I gather several images, show them to an audience and tell those stories.” As a keen photographer, he will be bringing stories from travel all over the world, including the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, South America and Antarctica.

Mozart & Beethoven
Springfield Symphony Orchestra – HAYDN Desert Island Overture MOZART Piano Concert No. 20, K.466, D minor BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3, Op. 55, E flat major (Eroica) These three composing contemporaries--friends, mentors and teachers--shocked and awed their audiences with their wild and wooly works! Desert Island Overture, a violent example of classical era tone painting, uses "sturm und drang" (storm and stress) to caue extremes of emotions. Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20, considered his most turbulent and Beethoven-ish works, is performed by Diane Walsh. Beethoven's bold Symphony No. 3, The Eroica (Heroic), celebrates the heroism of the individual against tyranny.
