Bayeux Tapestry at Engler Center on Tuesday, May 10

Apr302016

Bayeux Tapestry at Engler Center on Tuesday, May 10

 

UW Oshkosh, in collaboration with Chilton Arts Core presents a once in a lifetime chance to see the Bayeux Tapestry!

One of only four to-scale reproductions in the world of what has been called the most famous embroidery in history— the Bayeux Tapestry —will be on display in the Engler Center for the Performing Arts Center at Chilton Public School district.

Embroidered by an anonymous group of women after William the Conqueror assumed the English throne in 1066, the original tapestry chronicles the events leading to the Norman conquest of England in a visually stunning and unparalleled depiction of medieval life and warfare.

The 230-foot long painted reproduction matches every detail of the original embroidery. Unfolding like a pictorial newsreel, it replicates one of the world’s most unique artistic masterpieces. To learn more about the history of the Tapestry, visit the following website: http://bayeux.uwosh.edu/history-of-the-bayeux-tapestry/.

Gr 5-12 Concert – May 25th at 1pm & 7pm

Apr212016

Gr 5-12 Concert – May 25th at 1pm & 7pm

 

Dear Parents –

For several years, one of the highlights of our performance calendar has been the spring choir concert that features students in grades 5-12.  Throughout the past few years, this concert has also grown to be one of our biggest.  In order to address the overcrowding situation, we are going to try something new this year.  This year, we are going to perform the concert entitled “Go Light Your World” twice – May 25th at 1 pm and 7 pm.

To facilitate audiences at both performances, we are going to make both of them “ticketed events”.  That means you must have a ticket to get in.  The tickets will be available AT NO CHARGE to you by going to www.englercenter.com.  These tickets will be general admission (not assigned seats) and we have put a limit of 10 per family/per performance on during the pre-sale event. 

The pre-sale event will open Friday, April 22nd and run through Friday, May 6th.  WHEN ORDERING TICKETS THROUGH THE PRE-SALE, PLEASE USE THE PASSWORD CHOIR TO COMPLETE THE ORDER. The window will then close for a couple of days so we can evaluate seating availability at both performances.  Pending the results of our evaluation, we then plan to re-open the window with no restrictions from May 9th until the time of the performances on May 25th

We hope that opening up a second performance will ease the audience over-crowding issue and provide a better experience for the audience and the performers.  Please be sure to share this information with grandparents, friends and other relatives that plan on coming to the concert to ensure everyone who wants to see the performance is able to do so. 

We sincerely appreciate your continued support of the music program at Chilton.  It is a pleasure to work with your children.  If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact any of us listed at the bottom of this letter and we will be happy to help you!

Sincerely –

Joy Paffenroth – MS/HS Choir Director – paffenrothj@chilton.k12.wi.us – 849-2358 x. 6158

Kim Tiegs – ES/MS General Music Teacher – tiegsk@chilton.k12.wi.us – 849-9152 x. 2252

Russ Rautmann – Exec. Dir. of The Engler Center – rautmannr@chilton.k12.wi.us – 849-2358 x. 4847
