Delaware County Symphony's first Chamber Concert of the season. The program consists of two works - the Dvorak Quintet in A Major for piano and strings, and the Poulenc Sextet for piano and winds. The Dvorak quintet is among the finest music created by the 19th century Czech master, full of wonderful melodies and innovative compositional styles. The Poulenc sextet, written in 1932, exhibits light-heartedness, lively tunes, and bouncy rhythms so characteristic of the composer. This program is part of the Delco Arts Week celebration.

Light Opera of Portland is returning to the Multnomah Arts Center this fall with a topsy-turvy take on the Gothic Melodrama genre. Following a sellout production of H.M.S. Pinafore in Milwaukie this spring, LOoP is coming back to Southwest Portland to present Gilbert and Sullivans Ruddigore in October. Created at the height of their creative partnership, Ruddigore takes a comic swipe at the world of the Gothic Melodrama, with its evil aristocrats, virtuous maidens, honest heroes, ghosts, and curses. As a result of a witchs curse, whoever holds the title of Baronet of Ruddigore is compelled to commit one terrible crime every day, or perish in agony. Desperate to avoid this horrifying fate, young Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd faked his death and ran away to live his life as a simple farmer, Robin Oakapple. Robin falls madly in love with Rose Maybud, but is far too shy to express himself to her. Rose, abandoned as a baby with only a book of etiquette, is determined to live her life by those principles, and so while madly in love with Robin, is far too proper to say anything to him. The arrival of Robins foster brother, the boisterous but less-than-honest Richard Dauntless, gives Robin an opportunity to have someone speak to Rose on his behalf, but when Richard proceeds to fall in love with and subsequently propose to Rose himself, the three of them find themselves well and truly entangled. To complicate matters further, Robins younger brother Sir Despard Murgatroyd, current holder of the title of Baronet of Ruddigore, arrives in town in order to carry off Rose Maybud as his crime for the day. Richard reveals to Sir Despard the truth of Robins identity, and the fact that the cursed title should rightly belong to his older brother. Sir Despard dramatically reveals Robins true identity to the village, transferring the curse to him, much to the delight of Mad Margaret, his former fiancee whom he left at the altar in a previous crime. As the honest and upstanding Robin is reluctantly forced to become Sir Ruthven again and embark on a life of crime, can he discover a way to beat the curse, win back the love of Rose Maybud, and avoid an agonizing death at the hands of his own ghostly ancestors?

Matilda is the story of an extraordinary little girl with extraordinary powers. The daughter of abusive parents, Matilda finds refuge in library books, which she reads quickly and in creating her own stories.

Brave little Matilda knows she has to stand up against the adults in her world, and in doing so, discovers her own remarkable powers. Matilda’s bravery teaches Miss Honey and her classmates an important lesson -- that even though life can be hard, “nobody but me is gonna change my story” so 'sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.'
