Lensic Presents The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

Lensic Presents The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

March 24, 2019   7:30 PM

George Hinchliffe's Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a global sensation and nothing short of a national treasure in the U.K. With a career that spans over 30 years, their rise has been from curiosity to virtuosity, from village hall to Carnegie Hall.

On an ongoing “hand-luggage only” world tour, the Ukes provide pure entertainment, deadpan British humor, and irresistible, foot-tapping music. They are masters of the unexpected, whether reimagining folk songs, twisting classical music favorites, uncovering quirky versions of rock covers, or playing the performers’ own all original compositions.

SFI Presents

SFI Presents "Laws of Life, Time and Chance," with Srividya Iyer-Biswas

March 26, 2019   7:30 PM

Using rapid, iterative feedback between theory and experiments, Srividya Iyer-Biswas works to discover the basic physical laws that govern the probabilistic behavior of single cells, and that transcend details of specific biological systems. Her research uses a top-down physics approach, rather than more traditional approaches that focus on the cartography of genetic networks and on molecular details.

Iyer-Biswas and her team have reported predicative scaling laws governing the stochastic growth and division of cells, and have developed a theory that reveals the emergence of a scalable, cellular unit of time. Her current work involves extending these results to thermodynamics of organismal computation, time-dependent phenomena involving cellular decision-making, and laws that dictate complex biological and social phenomena.

Iyer-Biswas began her career as a theoretical physicist, then transitioned to experimental biophysics as a post-doc at Princeton University and the University of Chicago. Through her interdisciplinary work – combining theory and application, and spanning physics and biology – her goal is to ultimately advance the fundamental physics of living systems. Iyer-Biswas was named a 2017 Scialog Fellow for Molecules Come to Life and has lectured at the University of Chicago and the q-bio Summer School in Colorado.

Tickets are free, general admission.

The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: Die Walküre

The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: Die Walküre

March 30, 2019   10:00 AM

The second opera in Wagner’s monumental Ring cycle, Die Walküre has long stood on its own as an evening of extraordinarily powerful theater. Part of this appeal lies in its focus on some of the Ring’s most interesting characters at decisive moments of their lives: Wotan, the leader of the gods; his wife, Fricka; his twin offspring, Siegmund and Sieglinde; and, above all, Wotan’s warrior daughter Brünnhilde. These characters and others follow their destinies to some of Wagner’s most remarkable music.

In what is expected to be a Wagnerian event for the ages, soprano Christine Goerke plays Brünnhilde, Wotan’s willful warrior daughter, who loses her immortality in opera’s most famous act of filial defiance. Tenor Stuart Skelton and soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek play the incestuous twins Siegmund and Sieglinde. Greer Grimsley sings Wotan. Philippe Jordan conducts. Approx. runtime: 5:20 [2 Intermissions]

Tickets: $22-$28 | Students: $15

Performance Santa Fe presents Emanuel Ax

Performance Santa Fe presents Emanuel Ax

March 31, 2019   7:30 PM

Just as pianist Emanuel Ax makes standard piano repertoire sound fresh and new, so also does he play musical premieres as though he’s known them for a lifetime. The winner of seven Grammy Awards, Ax is in demand as a soloist with the world’s major orchestras, and as a recitalist in far more intimate settings. His musical depth and understanding is at the heart of his long chamber-music partnerships with such greats as Yo-Yo Ma, Yefim Bronfman, and Itzhak Perlman.

AMP Concerts presents An Evening with Jimmie Vaughan

AMP Concerts presents An Evening with Jimmie Vaughan

April 3, 2019   7:30 PM

Jimmie Vaughan is far more than just one of the greatest and most respected guitarists in the world of popular music. As Guitar Player magazine notes, “He is a virtual deity--a living legend.” After all, Vaughan provides a vital link between contemporary music and its proud heritage, as well as being a longtime avatar of retro cool. Since releasing his first solo album in 1994, he has set the standard for quality modern roots music. Throughout his career, Vaughan has earned the esteem of his legendary guitar-playing heroes and superstar peers along with successive generations of young players. His musical ethos and personal style have had an impact on contemporary culture, from spearheading the current blues revival with The Fabulous Thunderbirds to his longtime, innate fashion sense of slicked-back hair and sharp vintage threads (now seen throughout the pages of contemporary fashion journals) to becoming a premier designer of classic custom cars. But for Jimmie Vaughan, none of it is part of a crusade or a career plan. It's just his natural way of living his life and pursuing the interests that have captivated Vaughan since his youth.
