Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015
With more than 650 screenings across 48 states and seven countries, The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra (PRO) is one of the world’s foremost silent film accompanists and the world’s only year-round, professional ensemble re-creating “America’s Original Music” – the syncopated sounds of early musical theater, silent cinema and vintage dance. In this program, the PRO will accompany a screening of The Clown Princes of Silent Comedy – three short films starring Charles Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. Early cinema is a vast world of entertainment waiting to be enjoyed, and none bring it to life as grandly as the PRO!
2. Simone Dinnerstein – An Arkansas Debut: Bach Goldberg Variations
Friday, Jan. 8, 2016
American pianist Simone Dinnerstein will revisit the work that brought her international recognition and critical acclaim – her 2007 Telarc recording Bach Goldberg Variations, a self-financed album which ranked No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Classical Chart in its first week of sales. Motivated by a desire to find the musical core of every work she approaches, Dinnerstein is noted for the “majestic originality of her vision” (The Independent). Her deliberate and thoughtful approach to piano takes you on a journey of discovery, uncovering modern musical landscapes that renew your appreciation for classical music.

For over two decades, Danú has performed worldwide for a growing fan base, making them one of the leading traditional Irish ensembles today. With virtuosi players performing a glorious mix of ancient Celtic music and new repertoire – with songs in both English and Gaelic – this evening will be a night to embrace the rich musical heritage of Ireland!
5. The Swingles
Friday, April 1, 2016
The Swingle Singers have pushed the boundaries of vocal music for more than half a century. First making waves in the 1960s with a group of Parisian session singers performing Bach compositions, this renowned ensemble has evolved alongside the a cappella world, holding onto their distinctive niche while growing their repertoire to include a wide variety of music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has consistently defined the five-time Grammy® winners. Join us for an evening of harmonic excellence, as this esteemed British vocal band headlines WAC’s second annual VoiceJam Festival!
6. Hubbard Street Dance

Hubbard Street Dance is among the most original forces in contemporary dance, demonstrating fluency in a wide range of techniques and forms with a deep comprehension of abstract artistry and emotional nuance. Highly acclaimed for its exuberant and innovative repertoire, the company performs works by masterful American and international choreographers – including the prolific Alejandro Cerrudo, who made his Walton Arts Center debut in 2015 partnering with Wendy Whelan. With 18 artists hailing from five countries, the ensemble exudes virtuosity and versatility. Help us welcome this celebrated dance company back to Northwest Arkansas to enrich, engage and transform lives through the experience of dance!

From his early acclaim as a saxophonist bringing new energy and new audiences to the art of jazz, he has refined and expanded his talents and his horizons as a musician, composer, collaborator and educator – becoming one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. Don’t miss your chance to hear this legend play with one of the most innovative and celebrated ensembles playing today!

Thursday, April 28, 2016
These impeccable dancers are committed to bringing Cuban contemporary dance into the 21st century, working with top choreographers from outside Cuba’s walls while continuing to develop talent from within. They have quickly amassed a significant repertoire, including two works choreographed by Osnel Delgado and Trey McIntyre (a WAC favorite!) set to a live score by Grammy® Award-winning Cuban-American composer Arturo O’Farrill and his Afro Latin Jazz Octet (ALJO). The ALJO brings together the drama of big band jazz, the culture of Latin music, and the virtuosity of the world’s most accomplished solo musicians to present some of the very best in dance music.
