BLUE VIOLA tells the story of a priceless instrument that disappears after its owner, a player in the Chicago Symphony, accidentally leaves it on the street. It winds up in the hands of Vernon Addams, a junk dealer, who sees in it a lost treasure he is meant to rescue and care for. His girlfriend, Arnita Seward, is more practical. Growing up poor in Chicago has left her few options for a bright future; she has narrowly escaped the projects, but her job at a run-down Cookie and Hot Sandwich shop will never provide advancement, and she has to put up with the unwanted advances of her boss to boot. Arnita steals the viola from Vernon, and brings in her boss, Mikey Stearns, as an accomplice in order to get the instrument appraised, and hopefully fenced. Mikey concocts an unlikely story about a rich aunt who willed him the viola, while Arnita dreams of a cushy future “someplace warm”, financed by the proceeds of the instrument’s sale. Will Mikey’s story and Arnita’s flirting convince Fritz Humboldt, a finicky rare instrument dealer to accept their offer to sell him this “priceless” instrument?

With witty and pointed lyrics by Matt Boresi, and a blues-infused opera score by Peter Hilliard.

Directed by Tazewell Thompson, conducted by Robert Wood, starring Alicia Olatuja, Jorell Williams, Keith Phares and Ben Lurye

Featuring the Inscape Chamber Orchestra

Free – but RSVP required-

http://oaronline.org/breakfast2015/

Please join us for breakfast on Wednesday, April 8th and find out how Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR) works with inmates and former offenders to help them stay out of jail or prison and become productive members of society. For 41 years, OAR has been working to make our community safer and a more welcoming, wonderful place to live.

This is OAR’s seventh year of hosting the Second Chance Fundraising Breakfast where you will hear from OAR clients, volunteers, and community leaders. THE BREAKFAST IS FREE! At the end of the program we will invite those who can to make a contribution or pledge but there is no minimum donation required. We do, however, ask that you register so we know you are coming. http://oaronline.org/breakfast2015/

This year we will be honoring Arlington County Manager Barbara Donnellan and Alexandria Mayor Euille for their work in taking off the “box” on their job applications that asks: “Have you ever been convicted of a crime.” That means that those with a criminal record will at least be given the opportunity for an interview, if their credentials meet the requirements. At that point, they can explain their criminal background so the supervisor can determine if it has any relevance to the job they are filling.

The Breakfast will be held at the Sheraton Pentagon City (Sheraton National), near the Air Force Memorial. Doors open at 7:15 am with coffee, and the program will start promptly at 7:45 am and conclude by 9 am sharp. Come join OAR and other friends and colleagues on April 8th. Parking is free.

Carrie

Singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer will be in concert on April 11, 7pm, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington, 4444 Arlington Blvd, Arlington, Va. Earlier in the afternoon Newcomer will conduct a workshop from 2-4pm: “Our Lives as Sacred Story: Exploring the Heart and Spirit of Our Experience” — a workshop that explores the creative connection between everyday living and spiritual growth. The workshop is designed for all ages. The the workshop and concert will have free childcare.

The evening concert will begin at 7pm in the UUCA sanctuary. Carrie Newcomer’s warm voice and exquisite melodies has an irreverent yet spiritual view of the world. She has been described as “a soaring songstress” by Billboard, a “prairie mystic by the Boston Globe. Rolling Stone wrote that she “asks all the right questions.” One of the definitive voices of the heartland and progressive spirituality, Newcomer has the ability for sharp observation of the world. Newcomer has just released her latest album, “A Permeable Life” from Available Light Records. “A Permeable Life” is about what presses out from the heart, what comes in at a slant and what shimmers below the surface of things,” Newcomer says. “To live permeably is to be openhearted and audacious, to risk showing up as our truest self, and embracing a willingness to be astonished.”

Ticket prices range from $10-$35. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.uucava.org
