PAEC Presents The U.S. Army Field Band & Soldiers' Chorus

Choral
The internationally acclaimed United States Army Field Band of Washington, DC will continue its long tradition of presenting free public performances when it appears at the Performing Arts and Event Center in Federal Way, Washington. The Concert Band & Soldiers’ Chorus are the oldest and largest of The U.S. Army Field Band’s performing components. These two ensembles combine to present joint concerts on their national tours. They have performed in all 50 states and 30 foreign countries for audiences totaling hundreds of millions. The 60-member Concert Band and 29-member Soldiers’ Chorus perform regularly in some of the most famous concert halls in the world, and just as often in the humblest auditoriums in the smallest of communities. The joining of these two ensembles allows them to offer unparalleled versatility of programming, ranging from orchestral masterworks and operatic arias to Sousa marches, jazz classics, and Broadway musicals. The band and chorus also perform independently, and have recently shared the stage with such ensembles as the Boston Pops, the Cincinnati Pops, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra.

PAEC Presents an Evening with Rita Rudner

Stand Up Comedy
A house-filling favorite in Las Vegas since she opened as one of the hottest tickets in town in June 2000, Rita Rudner is known for her epigrammatic one-liners. Over the course of a fourteen year run and 2,000 plus shows, she has sold one and a half million tickets and become the longest-running solo comedy show in the history of Las Vegas. She has been named Las Vegas’s “Comedian of the Year” nine years in a row and in 2006, received The Nevada Ballet’s “Woman of the Year” Award. Rita’s first solo HBO special, Rita Rudner’s One Night Stand, was nominated for several awards, as was her eponymous English BBC television show that later appeared in the USA on A&E. Rudner’s two one-hour specials for HBO, Born To Be Mild and Married Without Children, were ratings standouts and she performed all over the country, filling Carnegie Hall in New York three times and the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles twice.

PAEC Presents The Kingston Trio

Folk
There is nothing like the experience of performing before an adoring audience. Successful groups become icons and often extend their performing years as long as they can. Performers are human and their productive years are limited. The exposure through live performances of the phenomena they have created is left either to new groups who perform tributes to the original or, in rare cases, a continuation of the original group with replacements, which we call a legacy group. The Kingston Trio is a legacy group. It has recently become a true “legacy” group as the mantle has been handed down to Josh Reynolds, the son of Nick Reynolds, one of the original members of The Kingston Trio. The Kingston Trio has been diligently preparing a brand new and exciting show. Josh and Nick’s cousin, Mike Marvin, along with the talented Tim Gorelangton will now continue the performing legacy of The Kingston Trio. At founding member Bob Shane’s behest, they return to their roots with shows for the upcoming Fall, Winter and Spring concert seasons. This will be known as: “The Legacy Tour, A salute to 60 years of The Kingston Trio.” A Kingston Trio concert is a compelling, hilarious, and thrilling show that leaves audiences wanting more and emotionally moved … with ovation after standing ovation, following their performances. Along with all their traditional hit songs and fan favorites (everything from Tom Dooley to MTA to Greenback Dollar and Where Have all the Flowers Gone?) they’ve added fresh new stories and songs to The Kingston Trio repertoire. Josh, Mike & Tim blend their voices to create that Kingston Trio sound in exactly the same manner in which it all started with Nick, Bob and Dave Guard.
