Enjoy Music and Comedy in Lewis University’s Fall 2018 Performing Arts Series

Published: August 2, 2018.

Lewis University will host a variety of performances as part of the Fall 2018 Arts & Ideas Performing Arts Series. All events are located on the University’s main campus in Romeoville. Admission is free and open to the public with seating on a first come, first served basis. Doors open a half hour prior to the performance.

The first performance, the Aionios Trio will present an evening of chamber music by Debussy, Dvorak, and others. Established in 1998 at Northwestern University, this piano trio has delighted and amazed audiences throughout the Chicagoland area. “Aionios” is the Greek word for everlasting. The performance will take place on at 7:30 p.m. September 26 in the St. Charles Borromeo Convocation Hall.

Clarion headlines the second performance. Founded in 1983, this brilliant and versatile trumpet and organ duo presents an extraordinary range of styles, with performances featuring music spanning 400 years. The name Clarion suggests the musical connections to both the trumpet and organ, and from its meaning for the duo as a “Clarion Call” for new ideas, in keeping with their interest in the unique flavor of new music for trumpet and organ. The performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. October 1 in the St. Charles Borromeo Convocation Hall.

Ph Comedy will perform Bad Advice at 7:30 p.m. October 9 in the Philip Lynch Theatre. Bad Advice is a long-form improv show with audience participation, larger than life characters and, well, just really bad advice. In this three-act, entirely improvised performance, the actors create memorable characters that spin your suggestions into unique perspectives, madcap situations, and once again, just the worst advice.

Fourth Coast Ensemble will be present Night & Day at 7:30 p.m. November 1 in the St. Charles Borromeo Convocation Hall. In Night & Day, Chicago-based vocal quartet Fourth Coast Ensemble will present art songs and vocal chamber music that explore time of day: beginning with early morning and progressing throughout the program to midnight. Minnesota-based pianist Mark Bilyeu performs with the group on a well-rounded program of German lieder, French mélodie, and the American art song.

The Performing Arts Series is being presented as a part of Lewis University’s Arts & Ideas Program, providing cultural and educational programming for students and the community. A portion of the Arts & Ideas events is sponsored by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council. For additional information, please contact artsandideas@lewisu.edu for further information.
