Dead Horses

Saturday, January 26, 7:30 pm Tickets: $15 – $20 Buy

Presenting a new, reimagined approach to the band’s critically-acclaimed folk sound, with special guests Ernest Brusubardis IV (violin), Viktor Brusubardis (cello), and Jamie Gallagher (percussion).

Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, Dead Horses writes music that is unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come.

Described by NPR Music as “evocative, empathetic storytelling,” Dead Horses earned praise from Rolling Stone Country as one of their “Artists You Need to Know in 2018.” Respected roots music journal, No Depression, included My Mother the Moon is its “Best Roots Music Albums of 2018 [So Far] list, and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has claimed the album to be “one of the best local albums of the year, and one of the best albums of its genre period.”

2018 was a big year for the Wisconsin-based duo, including their Red Rock Amphitheatre debut, shows with Trampled by Turtles, Mandolin Orange and Rhiannon Giddens, and a breakthrough streaming fanbase worldwide (nearing 1-million monthly listeners on Spotify). We’re thrilled to welcome Dead Horses to Mineral Point to play for you, and for what we know will be an unforgettable evening of music and storytelling.

Loving Vincent

Loving Vincent

Thursday Night Movies
Thursday, January 31, 7:00 pm Tickets: $5

On July 27, 1890, a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little-known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story. Van Gogh is not only famous for his paintings, but also for his tortured life, notably for cutting off his ear and shooting himself while painting at his easel — painting to the bitter end of his unhappy, misunderstood life. He is the world’s totemic ‘tortured artist’. Loving Vincent explores Vincent’s life and work by animating some of van Gogh’s most inspirational paintings to tell his story.

2017, PG-13

The Godfather Part II

The Godfather Part II

Thursday Night Movies
Thursday, February 28, 7:00 pm Tickets: $5
“I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!”

 

The compelling sequel to The Godfather, contrasting the life of Corleone father and son. Traces the problems of Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) in 1958 and that of a young immigrant Vito Corleone (Robert De Niro) in 1917’s Hell’s Kitchen. Michael survives many misfortunes and Vito is introduced to a life of crime. Features mob shenanigans in Florida and Cuba, Michael’s descent into anguished loneliness, and where the young don really comes down on what the word “family” truly means. A classic that many critics feel is the rare sequel that may be superior to the original.

Founded in 1960, the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra (WCO) is one of the elite chamber ensembles in the United States, and is dedicated to advancing Wisconsin communities through the transformative power of music. Under the direction of Maestro Andrew Sewell, WCO leverages the unique characteristics of chamber music to bring a wide variety of repertoire to audiences in settings that range from the formality of the concert hall to the intimacy of smaller community venues and the open accessibility of parks and other public spaces. Through its core artistic programming—comprising a five-concert Masterworks series at Madison’s Overture Center for the Arts, a holiday performance of Handel’s Messiah at Blackhawk Church in Middleton, and the highly popular free summer series Concerts on the Square in Madison’s Capitol Square—WCO annually shares the enrichment of live chamber music with 245,000 individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Through collaborations with regional performing arts groups and touring performances, WCO extends its artistic programming to broader audiences and communities across Dane, Columbia, Jefferson, Waukesha and Sauk counties. WCO airs its entire Masterworks series on Wisconsin Public Radio to 65,000 region-wide listeners. Wisconsin Public Television annually broadcasts a Concerts on the Square performance each year, for a potential viewing audience of 537,000 residents statewide. Via its annual education programs, including last season’s Side-by-Side concert with the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra and artistic development opportunities for young musicians, WCO engages a further 2,000 Dane County young people in grades 1–12.

WCO now comprises a core ensemble of 34 professional musicians as well as five full-time and three part-time program and administrative staff. The orchestra is governed by a 22-member Board of Directors and additionally supported by 100 active volunteers, who primarily assist with logistics and staffing for WCO’s annual Concerts on the Square. WCO’s projected operating budget for the 2017/18 season totals $2.1 million. Additionally, the orchestra maintains a $9.4 million endowment.
