A Celtic Musical Pilgrimage to Santiago: Carlos Núñez

Sunday, September 21, 2014 at 7:00 PM
Washington Center Main Stage

Carlos Núñez has become Galicia’s foremost traditional music ambassador as he connects the musical tradition of his native Spain’s rugged northwest coast with that of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and beyond. While an amazingly versatile multi-instrumentalist, he is widely regarded as the most famous player of the gaita, the bagpipes of Galicia uniquely evocative of Celtic traditional music.

Whether recording with The Chieftains or performing with a symphony orchestra in a historical square, Carlos Núñez packs energy, virtuosity, imagination, daring, and charisma into his every performance.

The von Trapps

The Washington Center Presents

Friday, Oct 10, 2014 at 7:30 PM
Washington Center Main Stage

You cannot find another name as universally beloved as von Trapp. The story of the family who escaped Austria, moved to the United States, and toured the world singing for two decades has inspired generations since the film The Sound of Music was released in 1965. The story continues as the great-grandchildren of Captain and Maria von Trapp take up the family tradition anew. Meet Sofi, Melanie, Amanda, and August von Trapp, four siblings that, for the last 12 years, have been singing on stages around the world to critical acclaim and packed houses. After hosting them with Pink Martini in April, 2014, we are tickled to be bringing the von Trapps back to Olympia for a solo show..

Seth Lepore Losing My Religion: Confessions of a New Age Refugee  

The Washington Center Presents

Thursday, Oct 16, 2014 at 7:30
Washington Center Black Box

 This one-man tour de force is a humorous, ironic and sardonic look at what Lepore describes as “the blurry line between self-help and faith.” Based on his own spiritual journey, which saw him leave the Catholic Church as a teenager and meander for over 20 years through Buddhism and a host of other -isms, the monologue juxtaposes wickedly funny and insightful characterizations of the people he has met along the way with thoughtful commentary on his own spiritual seeking.

Washington Center Main Stage

  German born, Canadian raised pianist and singer Michael Kaeshammer performs his singular sound of pop-tinged jazz. Noted for his dazzling showmanship, Mr. Kaeshammer brings the audience along for a fun musical ride that is sure to entertain. “The boogie-woogie pianist best known as a must-see live act reaffirms his true colours here: he’s an R& B hound, particularly if there’s a New Orleans roll to the beat." – Bernard Perusse – Montreal Gazette
