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.

Museum After Hours is a free monthly presentation series 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. The talks will take place in the Entrance Building at 5:00 pm from March through October and 4:00 pm from November through February.

Her comedy tackles her experience as a woman living in a fat body, being single, online dating, and some of life’s more difficult experiences, like medical emergencies, or losing a loved one. Emily finds humor and hope in things that many would be scared to share with a friend, let alone into a microphone. She wants to share her experiences and let you know that you’re not alone.

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.

This screening runs approximately 3 hours 35 minutes including an onscreen introduction and two intermissions. La Traviata is performed in Italian with English surtitles.

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.

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.

Their recipe for success includes a blend of old and new country music, male and female leads, duets, acoustic and electric sounds, and songs that are danceable and drinkable!

Walla Walla's favorite party band, Whiskey Creek Band, covers over 40 years of country's best party music with lots of laughs and dancing along the way. Genre: 90% Country, 10% anything goes.

Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow hilarious, are highlighted by their prudish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless to not fall in love with her. In the end, the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future — but the telling is so true, touching, and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has closed.

Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow hilarious, are highlighted by their prudish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless to not fall in love with her. In the end, the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future — but the telling is so true, touching, and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has closed.

Jack and The Beanstalk by the Missoula Children's Theatre

Auditions for 50-60 children, with a week of rehearsal schedules and workshops, culminating in three performances June 29, 2019.

The story of Jack and the Beanstalk is one of the classics of children's theatre. This play is full of magic. From the first act, when the beanstalk grows up in full view of the audience, miracles begin to happen right before your eyes. Up in the giant's house, above the clouds, Jack is nearly caught in a breathtaking chase over the stage and escapes only with the help of the giant's wife. Then, as Jack climbs toward home, there is a beautiful and magnificent scene on the beanstalk, in which the man in the moon tests his courage. Jack proves his mettle by finding a way not only to rescue the giant's wife, but also to save his own mother. When he finally chops down the beanstalk—with the giant on it—the audience is jubilant.

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.

The Live Cinema Series 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.

When Annie's husband John dies of leukaemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Women’s Institute members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence.

The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.

Museum After Hours: Bob Carson — The Blues

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. The talks will take place in the Entrance Building at 5:00 pm from March through October and 4:00 pm from November through February.
