Live Music: We Three (America's Got Talent Semi-Finalists)

We Three (siblings Joshua, Bethany and Manny) warmed hearts with their unforgettable 2018 "America’s Got Talent" audition in which they poured all their emotions into an original song, which they dedicated to their late mother, who passed away two years ago after a battle with cancer. They finished the season as semi-finalists and release their self-titled debut album in December.

Joshua uniquely plays the piano and drums (sometimes simultaneously), Manny the guitar, and Bethany the bass. But there are no rules, as each can adeptly swap instruments and often sound like a much larger ensemble. A strong lead vocal is complemented by lush harmonies that glide with superlative ease over complex arrangements that appear deliciously simple. We Three's original songwriting style is positive and purposeful, with smart lyrics and infectious melodies.

Museum After Hours: Bob Carson — The Blues

Bob Carson will be discussing his new book, The Blues: Natural History of the Blue Mountains in Northeastern Oregon and Southwestern Washington, published in November of 2018. Although the Blues are mostly underlain by young basalt flows, a variety of much older rocks reveal Earth history for hundreds of millions of years. Atop the Blues is a rare grass-tree mosaic with forest climax associations determined by elevation. Photographers for the book are Duane Scroggins, Bill Rodgers, and many others. The book is punctuated with photo galleries, poems, a foreword, and an afterword.

Robert J. Carson, Professor of Geology and Environmental Studies Emeritus at Whitman College, was raised in Lexington, Virginia. Mountaineering, whitewater boating, and spelunking in Rockbridge County, Virginia and during summers in northern New England sparked his interest in geology, which he studied at Cornell University. Bob earned an MS at Tulane University while employed by Texaco, exploring for petroleum in Louisiana and phosphate in Florida. His PhD research at the University of Washington led to positions with the Washington Department of Ecology and the Washington Geological Survey. Bob taught at North Carolina State University and the University of Oregon before joining the Whitman faculty in 1975. He taught on the Semester-At-Sea program twice, directed foreign study programs in England and Spain, and leads trips around the world. Most of his research has been on quaternary geology in Washington, northeastern Oregon, northwestern Wyoming, and Mongolia. His books include Hiking Guide to Washington Geology, Where the Great River Bends, East of Yellowstone, Many Waters, and The Blues.

Museum After Hours is a free monthly presentation series to be held on the last Thursday of every month. We provide a space for community congregation, discussion, and debate. The event touches on topics ranging from regional culture and history to the roles and responsibilities of museums within our community.

Live Cinema: The Queen of Spades — Royal Opera

In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation. The Queen of Spades is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new production that has already garnered five-star reviews in Amsterdam. The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires. This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling.

This screening runs approximately 3 hours 30 minutes including an onscreen introduction and one intermission. The Queen of Spades is performed in Russian with English surtitles.

The cast includes Aleksandrs Antonenko and Eva-Maria Westbroek and is conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera.

Museum After Hours: Catie McIntyre Walker — Lost Restaurants of Walla Walla

Native Walla Wallan Catie McIntyre Walker will be discussing her popular new book, Lost Restaurants of Walla Walla, which celebrates the decades of departed, beloved local establishments. Published in August of 2018, the book explores how dining in Walla Walla blossomed from an influx of mining transplants in the late 1800s. Within decades, a roadhouse called the Oasis boasted a seventy-two ounce slab of beef, and the old Pastime Cafe opened at 5:30 am with white toast and whisky for breakfast. In the early 1950s, Ysidro Berrones opened one of the valley’s first Mexican restaurants, the El Sombrero Tortilla Factory and Cafe. Joe Denney, owner of Denney’s Hi-Spot for two decades, also satisfied locals with his morning crooning to piano on KTEL. Bring your appetite for history, as Catie McIntyre Walker will share these stories and more during this Museum After Hours presentation.

Live Cinema: La Traviata — Royal Opera

Richard Eyre's beautiful production provides the perfect setting for Giuseppe Verdi's opera about a courtesan who sacrifices all for love. From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant "Sempre libera" — both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing.

Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional color, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.

The cast of this production includes Ermonela Jaho as Violetta, Charles Castronovo as Alfredo Germont, and Plácido Domingo as Giorgio Germont.

The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers.

Ímar: Celtic Irish Traditional Concert

The five members of Ímar have been awarded many top prizes in Celtic music, including nine All-Ireland and eight All-Britain titles. Their sound is mainly traditional Irish music with some contemporary and original compositions. The band were BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners in 2018 and were nominated for “Band of the Year” at the 2018 Scots Trad Music Awards.

Adam Brown (bodhrán), Adam Rhodes (bouzouki), Mohsen Amini (concertina), Ryan Murphy (uilleann pipes) and Tomás Callister (fiddle) share a strong background in Irish music, although only Murphy actually hails from Ireland. Rhodes and Callister are from the Isle of Man, whilst Amini is a Glasgow native, and Brown is originally from Suffolk. These foundations underpin many of Ímar’s distinctive qualities, in both instrumentation and material. Ímar’s unmistakable synergy, however, centers on the overlapping cultural heritage between Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. All three places once shared the same Gaelic language, and a similar, clearly potent, kinship endures between their musical traditions.

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations.

At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.

Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honor of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching — Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

Museum After Hours: Sullivan Friebus — Psychological Warfare of the Pacific Ocean Theater in World War II

In this Museum After Hours presentation, former FWWM intern Sullivan Friebus, a history major at Whitman College, will discuss psychological warfare of the Pacific Ocean theater during World War II.

During Sullivan’s internship, the museum received an assortment of documents and photographs that detailed the struggles and victories of the Allied forces in the Pacific theater. These documents, collected by World War II veteran and Walla Walla local Donald A. Anderson, include examples of propaganda utilized by both the Allied and Axis powers. The psychological tactics developed in the U.S. campaign against Japan sought to undermine the morale of the Japanese soldiers, encourage them to surrender, and ultimately prevent American casualties. At first primarily targeting individual soldiers or units, psychological warfare would eventually attempt to influence the unconditional surrender of Japan itself.

Sullivan Friebus will share his research and talk about the lessons learned from the use of psychological warfare, which are relevant in a world where foreign and domestic organizations continue to mobilize propaganda within the United States.

Museum After Hours is a free monthly presentation series to be held on the last Thursday of every month. We provide a space for community congregation, discussion, and debate.

Live Cinema: La Bayadère — Royal Ballet

6:00 PM18:00

Live Cinema: La Bayadère — Royal Ballet

This ballet will transport audiences to a world of temple dancers, vengeful gods, jealous princesses and noble warriors.

La Bayadère tells a story of love, passion and vengeance. Nikiya, a temple dancer, is in love with the warrior Solor but the High Brahmin desires her for himself. When Nikiya spurns him, the furious High Brahmin tells Princess Gamzatti, Solor’s fiancée, that Solor and Nikiya are in love. In revenge, Gamzatti orders Nikiya to be killed. Solor is haunted by Nikiya’s spirit and dreams of being reunited with her. At his wedding to Gamzatti he finally achieves his desire: the angry gods take vengeance for the death of Nikiya by destroying the temple, killing the whole wedding party. Solor and Nikiya’s spirits are reunited.

Choreographer Natalia Makarova brings the nineteenth-century Russian classic La Bayadère to life in her adaptation of Marius Petipa’s original choreography. La Bayadère was practically unknown to audiences outside Russia until Makarova brought her production to The Royal Ballet in 1989. It has since become a core work in the Company’s repertory. Particular highlights include the Kingdom of Shades scene in Act III, a showcase for the corps de ballet as they perform arabesques across the moonlit stage. The cast will feature Royal Ballet Principals Marianela Nuñez as Nikiya, Vadim Muntagirov as Solor and Natalia Osipova as Gamzatti.

The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers.

This screening runs approximately 2 hours 50 minutes including an onscreen introduction and two intermissions.

Live Cinema: The Nutcracker — The Royal Ballet

The young Clara creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favorite present — a Nutcracker doll. But the mysterious magician Drosselmeyer is waiting to sweep her off on a magical adventure. After defeating the Mouse King, the Nutcracker and Clara travel through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy treats them to a wonderful display of dances. Back home, Clara thinks she must have been dreaming — but doesn’t she recognize Drosselmeyer’s nephew?

Peter Wright’s nigh-on definitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores.

This production of The Nutcracker has enthralled audiences for over 30 years since its opening in 1984. It showcases the full energy of the Company, alongside the emerging talent of young dancers from The Royal Ballet School. The stunning costumes, numbering around 600 and dating back to the world-premiere, are revitalized for the show.

The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers.

This screening includes an onscreen introduction and one intermission. This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.

Museum After Hours: Presenter Gary Lentz

Museum After Hours: Presenter Gary Lentz

If you have lived in Walla Walla for any length of time, you have heard the distant horn of diesel locomotives as they go about their switching chores. The sound usually echoes off the buildings and greets the early risers. But did you know that engines have been making that sound with whistles, horns, and bells for the past 143 years? The stretch of railroad from Walla Walla to Wallula is the oldest point-to-point rail operation in the State of Washington.

In this Museum After Hours presentation Gary Lentz portrays William Tye, a conductor on the Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad, who offers a visual presentation on the history of the railroad from a railroad employee’s point of view. The talk will discuss the people who built their dreams, cleared the right-of-way, laid the track, and operated the engines and trains that helped build Walla Walla into the town it is today.

Imagine riding on the railroad in 1878 from Walla Walla to Wallula. You have to make a connection with one of the riverboats that will transport you to Portland, down the Columbia River, and around the rapids. From there you can make connections by sea to places around the world. The Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad provides you with that opportunity. It may be slow and somewhat dangerous but such is life in the last part of the Nineteenth Century. Lentz’s presentation as William Tye will provide insights into those dangers and the rewards of taking such a trip.

Fort Walla Walla Museum is in the process of restoring one of the original engines on the Walla Walla & Columbia River. The fourth of six engines owned by the railroad, the Blue Mountain, is currently on display. Background on the engine, how it came to work for the Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad, and what happened after it left, as well as how it found its way back, will all be discussed and illustrated in the program.

The program will also explain why Doctor Dorsey Baker’s Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad was nicknamed “The Rawhide Railroad,” why “snakeheads” were a threat to passengers, and why the fledgling railroad was boycotted in its early years by the same people it promised to serve.

Please join the museum for this interesting and fascinating look into a subject often taken for granted but so important to us and those who settled the area a century and a half ago. All Abooooard!
