Heartfelt Folk Harmonies
Wailin’ Jennys
What started as a happy
accident of singer-songwriters
uniting for a one-time-only
performance at a tiny guitar
shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba has
evolved into one of the most beloved
of international folk acts, the Wailin’
Jennys. Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and
Heather Masse’s three distinct voices
combine in achingly-perfect harmonies,
creating some of the most exciting and
exquisite music on the folk-roots scene.
In 2004, the Wailin’ Jennys’ first fulllength album 40 Days was released to
great critical acclaim, winning them a
Juno Award, Canada’s top music honor.
They were soon appearing regularly
on the radio show A Prairie Home
Companion and packing venues across
North America. Their follow-on album
Firecracker found fans across genres,
from traditional folk to alternative
country, pop and rock, and they have
continued to reach new creative heights
with each subsequent release. Their
2011 album Bright Morning Stars
combined fresh and innovative sounds
with the band’s signature harmonies,
delivering a perfect mix of Americana,
pop and traditional folk in a classic style.
Although known primarily for their
acoustic music, each of the Wailin’
Jennys brings a wide range of musical
backgrounds and talents to the group.
Ruth Moody is a classically-trained
soprano and pianist, praised for her
versatile vocals on traditional and Celtic
music, who also adds guitar, banjo and
bodhrán to the mix. Mezzo Nicky Mehta
plays the guitar, harmonica, drums and
ukulele, and grew up surrounded by
classical music, training as a dancer
before making music her focus. Alto
Heather Masse, a jazz voice graduate
of the New England Conservatory of
Music, plays the upright bass and has
performed with Mark O’Connor’s Hot
Swing. Each has a unique and individual
style of musical expression, but together
forge a beguiling mix of Americana, pop
and traditional folk that is delivered with
the dynamic and irresistible vocal power
of three.

To the Point
This exhibit celebrates the pencil and the growth in the number of area
artists who have embraced this medium with varied drawing and painting
techniques. The show will feature long time area pencil artists including
Kathleen Hill, Maclyn Pons, and Lenore Kreit. In addition, pencil artists from
the Livermore Valley Pencil Artists organization and students from Maryann
Kot’s Colored Pencil Basics and Beyond class will participate.
Colored Pencil artist and teacher Maryann Kot began teaching the medium
at the Bothwell Arts Center in late 2012 and has taught 60 students in the
past year. As a result, the medium has caught on in the Tri-Valley to such a
degree that Livermore is now the center for the Colored Pencil Society of
America’s Northern California Chapter and the Bothwell was chosen as the
site for the Society’s Bay Area Colored Pencil workshops in the future.
Maryann has a Nature Illustration Certificate from the Tucson Desert
Museum Art Institute in AZ. The three-year program’s curriculum is strong in
drawing, colored pencil, and pen & ink. She has had solo shows in Tucson
and the bay area and has participated in national art shows as well.
Maryann Kot and the Bothwell Arts Center would like to give a heartfelt
“Thank You” to our local art store, Way Up Art & Frame, whose
sponsorship and promotional assistance has helped to grow the arts in the
area, including the classes taught by Kot.

“Theater Blues is a project that seeks to capture aging movie theaters in cyanotype
before they are gone. I’ve been a lover of both photography and movies since I
was young. Theater Blues allows me to express both of those loves. Moving into
the Bothwell’s Downtown Art Studios has allowed me the space I need to bring
this project to life. The Downtown Art Studios has been a great place to work, be
inspired, and be driven by the artists around me.”

Global Greats of the Acoustic Guitar
International Guitar Night
For almost 20 years,
guitarist Brian Gore has
united some of the world’s
foremost acoustic guitarists in
a unique event that highlights
musical collaboration and creativity.
Sponsored by Acoustic Guitar
Magazine, International Guitar Night is
the only production of its kind to have
grassroots origins. Originally founded in
a small Bay Area club, each year Gore
invites premier guitarists from around
the globe to demonstrate the musical
diversity within the world of acoustic
guitar, uniting classical, jazz, folk, and
new acoustic styles. While it has grown
in stature to become one of the most
important acoustic guitar showcases in
the world, IGN has retained an informal
ambiance in an intimate setting.
Joining Gore in 2014, Italian steel
string guitarist Pino Forastiere has
brought his classical guitar background
to collaborate on projects from jazz
and rock, to electronic and pop. He is
revered for his unique mix of melody,
improvisation and hand percussion.
Mike Dawes
from England is
hailed as one of
the world’s finest
young fingerstyle
guitarists. Since
his debut single in
2012, he has toured
every continent,
his energy and
charisma combining
with a virtuoso
style acclaimed for
its subtle nuances.
Considered one
of Argentina’s
most important
guitarists, Quique Sinesi plays the
7-string Spanish guitar, piccolo guitar and
charango, combining elements of tango
and folklore with jazz, classical and world
rhythms in his dynamic music.

four-guitar finale. For these guitarists,
who typically tour alone most of the
year, the interactive format fosters a
welcome level of camaraderie – an
opportunity to collaborate rather than
compete. With their immense talent,
the blend of different genres, styles and
personalities, results in a dynamic night
of music that thrills both performers and

Science on Saturday will present a themed program
of four talks focusing on computational modeling as
a tool for scientific discovery in the 21st century.
This four-week series of FREE lectures and demonstrations is
intended for middle and high school students. There are four
dates, each with a unique presentation by leading llnl science
researchers supported by master high school science teachers. The
1-hour presentations are at 9:30 am and 11:15 am. Seating is on a
first come basis and may not be reserved in advance.

Computer Simulation:
Exploring Nature with a Computer
Vic Castillo, LLNL Scientist
Rodger Johnson, Teacher Monte Vista High School
Vic Castillo, PhD is a research engineer at LLNL and was honored with the
2013 Community Service Award from Great Minds in STEM.
Rodger Johnson teaches Physics, Chemistry, and Physics and Engineering
Technology at Monte Vista High School.
Computers are becoming an increasingly cheaper, more
powerful tool that cannot be ignored by professionals.
Computer simulation reproduces the behavior of natural
and man-made systems to help us understand, predict, and
communicate. In this series kick-off, we will show you how
computer simulation is used by LLNL scientists on the world’s
fastest computers. We will also show you how you can get
started doing your own computer simulations with free, opensource tools for class projects or just for fun.

Fusion Modeling:
using big computers to understand one of
the universe's biggest secrets
Frederico Fiuza, LLNL Lawrence Fellow
Dan Burns, Teacher Los Gatos High School
Frederico Fiuza, PhD is a Lawrence Postdoctoral Fellow in the Fusion Energy
Sciences Program at LLNL who has received a 2013 ASCR Leadership
Computing Challenge (ALCC) award.
Dan Burns teaches AP Physics and is the Los Gatos High School's
technology coach.
Fusion energy is a possible long-term energy solution to
provide the energy needed to drive economic growth and
social development. Harnessing the energy of the Sun and
stars here on Earth requires a detailed understanding of
the behavior of matter at extreme temperature and density
conditions. Massive simulations, using up to one million
computer processors (equivalent to hundreds of thousands
of laptops working simultaneously), play a critical role
in this research. They allow us to test different theories
and explore different fusion approaches, such as “fast
ignition” of the fusion fuel. We will discuss the challenges
associated with fusion modeling, and how the outstanding
computational resources and advanced computer graphics
at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory help us to
create a miniature Sun on Earth.

Menacing Microbes:
Protein Models Reveal Secrets
Beth Vitalis, LLNL Scientist
Dean Reese, Teacher Tracy High School
Beth Vitalis, PhD is the lead biologist on the LLNL Pathogen Bioinformatics
team working with numerous collaborators and sponsors, including the
Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Dean Reese is the Science Department Chair and a Physics Teacher at
Tracy High School.
Microbes are living organisms too small to be seen. While
most are friendly to humans, some microbes, called
pathogens, can cause disease. Although the medical field
has created miraculous antimicrobial drugs to ward them
off, menacing microbes often change their protein makeup in devious ways to evade being destroyed, resulting in
antibiotic resistance and eventually ‘super-bugs’. Proteins
are diverse and dynamic biomolecules that determine how
organisms thrive in changing environments. Protein modeling
is a computational tool that researchers use to ‘see’ microbial
proteins. Using LLNL’s high performance computational
capabilities, 3D models are created of microbial proteins,
providing visual tools to expose microbial secrets. This
information can be used to help detect, understand, and
identify new ways to treat the menacing microbes.

Erin McKay is the Biotechnology and IB Biology teacher at Tracy High School.
Computer modeling is a powerful tool for scientific inquiry
when experiments are too costly, too dangerous, or
simply impossible. In this talk we will describe how to
build a computer model of a human heart, starting from an
individual cell and then using data from an actual person
to create a realistic representation of a beating heart. We
will discuss some of the tricks and techniques we use to
combine the power of Sequoia's 1.6 million CPUs to perform
simulations of unprecedented detail and duration and show
examples of how doctors and researchers may soon be able
to use such simulations to investigate the effects of new
drugs on cardiac rhythms or improve the success rate of
complex surgical procedures.

Journey of Hope and Promise
Celtic Nights
Celtic Nights, drawn
from the history and folklore
of Ireland and her Celtic
cousins, is a dazzling showcase
of storytelling, music and dance
that takes audiences on a timeless
journey of hope and promise. Lilting
melodies and the plaintive lyrics of Celtic
ballads, together with fiery fiddle playing
and traditional step dancing, comes
together to create an unforgettable
picture of the lives and loves of a great
people from a small island.
A story in constant motion, Celtic
Nights is an epic tale of departures,
arrivals and the lengthy road between,
telling of a proud and passionate people
who dared to leave their beloved
country to seek their dreams of a
future in America. Every moment is
filled with a deep sense of history and
powerful emotions of joy and laughter,
melancholy and sadness.
Celtic Nights celebrates not only the
Ireland the immigrants left behind, but
their lives in the America they found, a
new and welcoming homeland. In return,
they passed on the legacy of their Celtic
heritage through their music, song,
dance and storytelling. The rich sounds
of Ireland have had a long-reaching
influence on American music, and
continue to be echoed in the bluegrass,
country and western music of today.
Interwoven throughout the evening are
beloved songs and ballads, including
such old favorites as Danny Boy, Isle of
Hope, and May We
Never Have to Say
Goodbye, and the
show is enhanced
by breathtaking
images of the
old country and
traditional Celtic
costumes. The
talented cast of
singers, dancers
and musicians
make every minute
memorable, encouraging the audience
to sing along and become a part of this
eternal story of hope. Uplifting and
unforgettable, Celtic Nights leaves the
theater ringing with the sounds of Celtic
music and never fails to earn a place in
the heart of every listener.

A Valentine from Broadway
Some Enchanted Evening
Two bright stars of
Broadway join together in
a truly enchanted evening
of music and laughter. With
familiar love songs and other
favorites, Dale Kristien and Bill Hutton
will deliver a heartfelt valentine direct
from the Great White Way. Opening
the evening will be comedy star Steve
Bruner, whose signature blend of
engaging and family-friendly humor has

clubs, on television, and on cruise ships
worldwide for more than a decade.
Dale Kristien is best known for her
record-breaking four-and-one-half
years in the lead role of Christine in
The Phantom of the Opera. Kristien
first played Christine opposite the
original Phantom, Michael Crawford,
on Broadway and the two premiered
the Andrew Lloyd Webber show in Los
Angeles. The longest running Christine
ever, she was featured in more than
1,700 performances and was the only
actress allowed to play the role for all
eight performances per week. Kristien
has also appeared on Broadway in
Camelot and in the Houston Grand
Opera revival of Showboat.
Bill Hutton is a Tony Award nominee,
distinguished for having created the
title role for the original Broadway
production of Joseph and the Amazing
Technicolor Dreamcoat. He also
originated the role of Auccussin in the
musical Festival, which played in San
Francisco, Los Angeles, Ford's Theatre
in Washington, DC and off-Broadway
in New York. Hutton starred in the
original musical The Wrong Box, and
was honored with a Los Angeles Drama
Critics Circle award nomination for the
West Coast Premiere of William Finn's
In Trousers.
In a delightful and intimate performance,
Kristien and Hutton will treat audiences

performs the music of Pink Floyd,
and has gained a strong following for
their unique ability to enthuse both the
hard-core fans of the early adventurous
Floyd and those who enjoy the songs
and soundscapes that later brought
them widespread appeal. They capture
the essence of each of the various
Pink Floyd eras from the formative Syd
Barrett days, through the 70s and the
final post-Waters era.
In the Pink Floyd tradition, a HOUSE
OF FLOYD concert incorporates sound
effects, moving lights, lasers and video
projection—including many of the
original, legendary backing films used
by Pink Floyd. The set lists on any given
night might be from an actual Pink Floyd
concert, or a custom HOUSE OF FLOYD
mix, but always includes rarely heard
live arrangements used by Pink Floyd
in concert—as well as the occasional
obscure pieces that never made it to
vinyl and were heretofore unknown to all
but the serious collectors.
The Pink Floyd Concert Experience has
packed sold out houses throughout the
U.S. and their spectacular
stage show
is not to be missed. HOUSE OF FLOYD
performs their ultimate Pink Floyd tribute
show live—including backscreen and
laser lighting.
This is a live recreation of an actual Pink
Floyd concert and highlights the greatest
and most popular music of their career,
including Dark Side of the Moon, The
Wall, and Wish You Were Here.

Laughing Matters
Second City
The Second City’s
legendary comic style shines
in Happily Ever Laughter, a
hilarious revue filled with some
of the best sketches, songs
and improvisations from their 53-year
history. When The Second City opened
its doors in December 1959, no one
could have guessed it would become
one of the most influential and prolific
comedy venues in the world. Under
the leadership of Paul Sills, Howard
Alk and Bernie Sahlins, the small cabaret
theater developed a unique way of
creating and performing comedy based
on improvisational games. Experimental
and unconventional in its approach, their
spontaneous, interactive style appealed to
a younger generation of both performers
and audiences. Today, The Second City
has become a Chicago landmark and is
considered a national treasure.
The talented members of The
Second City have served as some of
comedy’s greatest ambassadors. Their
brightest stars have hit the road with
The Second City Touring Company
including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert,
Amy Poehler, Steve Carell, and Bill
Murray. For years, Second City alumnus
populated NBC’s Saturday Night Live
with such superstars as John Belushi,
Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner, and
recently Cecily Strong and Jason
Sudeikis joined their ranks. Their
comedy doesn’t stop at the border
either; Second City’s Canadian sister
theater provided a successful launching
pad for the careers of John Candy,
Eugene Levy, Rick Moranis and many
others through SCTV.
The Chicago Tribune has called The
Second City “a comedy powerhouse,”
and the next generation of comics
can be counted on to deliver an
incomparable evening of side-splitting
entertainment. Whether playing off
news ripped from the morning headlines
or sending up classic gems from their
archives, The Second City is always a
laugh-out-loud hit. Audiences become
part of a show filled with hilarious sketch
comedy, scripted and improvisational
elements, in an evening of smart,
cutting-edge comedy that guarantees
Happily Ever Laughter.

A Passionate Approach to Latin Guitar
Guitar Passions
sponsored by
ABC Music Store & Academy
Three-time Grammy
Award-winning guitarist
Sharon Isbin merges her
innovative classical technique
with iconic jazz master Stanley
Jordan and Brazil's leading guitarist
Romero Lubambo in an exquisite
evening of Latin-inspired jazz.
Isbin is acclaimed for her extraordinary
lyricism, technique and versatility.
Named “Best Classical Guitarist” by
Guitar Player magazine, she was the
first guitarist ever to win the Munich
Competition. With her most recent
release Sharon Isbin & Friends: Guitar
Passions, she has now recorded
more than 25 albums from Baroque,
Spanish/Latin and 20th Century styles,
to crossover and jazz-fusion. Isbin has
expanded the guitar repertoire with
some of the finest new works of this
century, commissioning and premiering
more concerti than any other guitarist,
as well as solo and chamber works.
Jordan is known for taking listeners on
breathless journeys into the unexpected.
Romero Lubambo arrived in the United
States from Rio de Janeiro in 1985
bringing a fresh new sound in jazz guitar.
Comfortable in any musical setting,
he unites the rhythms of his native
Brazilian musical heritage with a fluency
in the American jazz tradition, forming
a distinctive sound. A composer and a
performer, Lubambo demonstrates both
the ability to express creative musical
thoughts through improvisation, as well
as the virtuosity to deliver them.
In an unforgettable musical experience,
this powerhouse trio of guitarists will
put a classic and contemporary twist
on music with a distinctive Latin flavor
drawn from Isbin’s musical mentors and
the music of Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina,
Colombia and Spain.
Since the start of his remarkable career,
Stanley Jordan has been a musical
chameleon. His playing is infused with
openness, imagination, and versatility,
as well as sheer maverick daring.
Whether expressing himself in bold
reinventions of classical masterpieces,
soulful explorations of pop-rock hits,
blazing straight-ahead jazz forays, or
ultramodern improvisational works,

Grammy Award-Winning Songwriter
Richard Marx
Over the past 25 years,
Grammy Award-winner
Richard Marx has made his
mark on the music world as
both a singer and songwriter.
The only male solo artist to have his
first seven singles reach the Top 5,
he has more than a dozen Number 1
hits to his credit. His classic romantic
ballads such as Right Here Waiting,
Now and Forever, and Hold on to the
Nights have earned him a permanent
place in the hearts of fans worldwide.
Marx grew up in the Chicago suburbs
where his father worked in advertising
as a commercial jingle writer. Marx
began playing music and writing songs
as a teen and while he was still in high
school, a tape of his songs reached
pop star Lionel Richie. When Marx
arrived in Los Angeles at the age of
19, he worked first as a session singer
for Ritchie and other artists, then as a
songwriter, before releasing his own
debut album in 1987.
With a broad stylistic range, Marx
has written and produced songs for
many top artists including Barbra
Streisand, Vince Gill, Natalie Cole,
Josh Groban, and ‘NSync. Dance
with my Father, written with the late
Luther Vandross, won Song of the
Year at the 2005 Grammy Awards. His
hit Better Life with Keith Urban spent
six consecutive weeks at the top of the
country charts in 2005 and was followed
to the top by Long Hot Summer in
2010. Marx has released 10 solo albums,
including last year’s Christmas Spirit, as
well as more than a dozen compilation
and live albums.
In 2006, Marx went on the road with
Ringo Starr’s All-Star Band for 22
dates in North America, playing guitar
and performing his own hits. In addition
to appearances with others, Marx has
been enthusiastically received on solo
acoustic tours in the U.S., China, Russia
and Europe.
Marx has supported many causes,
from donating the royalties from his
hit single, Should’ve Known Better,
to build a room at the NYU Medical
Center for pediatric cancer patients,
to his 1989 recording of Children of
the Night, which brought attention to
the plight of homeless children on the
streets, raising more than $500k for the
Children of the Night Foundation. Marx
has also organized an annual all-star
benefit concert for the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation, raising more than $4 million
for research to cure
the disease.
"A great storyteller...chart topping romantic...
the best-kept secret in music. Don’t ever
miss out on a chance to catch one of his solo
acoustic shows.” / Tampa Bay Times

Grammy for song of the year.

Education Outreach
Support for Student Tickets
Arts Education Fund
Changing Young People's Lives through the Arts
We believe that our mission to bring
world-class arts and entertainment to
the Livermore Valley includes providing
school districts across the region with
access to performances and artists that
will change young people’s lives.
Working in partnership with teachers, administrators,
parents and students, LVPAC hosts a wide range of school
specific performances in the Bankhead Theater and also
provides workshops, master classes and teacher training
opportunities using the artists that appear on our stage.
Educational activities include WOW! - The World of
Wisdom-a project that presents entertainment-based
programs for young people in math, science and technology;
$15 student tickets for all LVPAC Presents performances;
family-friendly Bankhead Theater events; and free in-school
performances, workshops and master classes. Portions
of these activities are underwritten through generous
contributions and matching gifts to our education fund.
The Student Ticket Program was created through an
anonymous grant from a Livermore family to underwrite
discount tickets for all LVPAC Presents events. Children
ages 2-17 attend performances featuring world-class visiting
artists in music, theater and dance for about 1/3 of the
regular ticket price. This gift makes it affordable for parents
to share the performing arts with their families.
Recognizing the value of this new program, the Bill King
Memorial Fund, in conjunction with the Livermore Y’s
Men’s Club, subsidized 120 student tickets for the 2013-14
season. LVPAC members and patrons have expressed an
interest in continuing the Student Ticket Program. We invite
you to participate. The average ticket price of $40 less the
student price of $15 equals an underwriting need of $25 per
ticket. Your gift that subsidizes one, two or several tickets,
will make a difference as a collective effort to fund student
tickets today and in the future.
Help share the performing arts with children.
If you would like to make a contribution or learn more about these programs that support
school and family performances along with student tickets, please contact our development staff
at 925-583-2305 or email [email protected]
