Queen's Cartoonists

February 12, 2018, 6:30pm - February 12, 2018, 8:30pm

The Queen’s Cartoonists are a jazz band specializing in music from cartoons. The music runs the gamut from lightning fast swing arrangements to sync’d video projections, vocal numbers, and comedy. Be prepared for music from classic Warner Brothers cartoons, early Disney films, cult cartoon classics, and modern animation. Featured composers include Raymond Scott, Carl Stalling, Danny Elfman, Alf Clausen, John Williams, and countless adaptations of classical favorites! Tying this diverse and challenging repertoire together are stories and anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers. The band is on a musical mission of equal parts music preservation, education, and performance. The Queen’s Cartoonists tap into the rich tradition of cartoon music to bring a fun, cross-generational concert experience to any and all who will listen! TQC has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, and on NPR. They have been bringing their unique (yet nostalgic) sound to performing arts centers and schools all over the US.

Siouxland 104: The Dirty Thirties

February 6, 2018, 7:15pm - July 3, 2018, 8:45pm

The Siouxland reading series has become an Orange City Arts signature staple, led by veteran instructor Dr. James Schaap. Schaap leads students on a journey, both literal and figurative, through the Midwest and its rich literary tapestry. Discussion of an array of books celebrating Midwest life takes place in a variety of locations, from authors’ hometowns to characters’ backyards and many others besides. Fourth in the series, Siouxland 104: The Dirty Thirties explores the lively personalities who endured the Dust Bowl, the Great Depression, and still managed to love and work and dream and laugh. And sometimes cry. Schaap has selected a reading list that features authors who grew up just down the road and stories that take place in our own familiar neighborhoods.
