Monthly Music Series: Ken Kehner Quartet: Jobim Reimagined

Enjoy an evening of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s most memorable melodies as performed by the Ken Kehner Quartet.

Along the way, the quartet will pay tribute to the jazz greats Wayne Shorter and Brad Mehldau, among others.

Ken Kehner is an active performer, educator, and clinician. He holds a degree in piano performance from Truman State University where he served as staff accompanist and later joined the faculty as a jazz instructor. Ken is currently on faculty at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, where he teaches jazz piano, improvisation, conducts several jazz combos, and assists with the jazz ensemble.

Ken has backed such noted artists as Bill Watrous, Bobby Shew, Buddy DeFranco and many others. He recently released his first recording as a leader, “From This Moment On,” featuring Marty Morrison on drums and Nick Jost on bass.

Composer Series: César Franck @ World Chess Hall of Fame
Feb

to Mar 1

Composer Series: César Franck @ World Chess Hall of Fame

Join us as we enjoy chamber music by composer César Franck, performed by members of the St. Louis Symphony. This concert will feature selections from Franck’s beloved "Sonata for Violin and Piano," and will highlight his emotionally explosive "Piano Quintet," which is largely considered one of his crowning compositional achievements. César Franck was one of the leading composers, pianists and organists of the second half of the 19th Century. Though born in Belgium, he was educated at the Paris Conservatory and made his entire career in Paris, France. Franck was instrumental in the movement to give French music emotional engagement, technical solidity, and seriousness—comparable to that of German composers—shifting the focus away from opera and towards symphonic & chamber music.

Reservations are required.

About MADE:

MADE is the place where St. Louis Makers, Artists, Designers, and Entrepreneurs create and collaborate. Our co-founders, Jim McKelvey and Doug Auer (the guys who brought you Third Degree Glass Factory), acted quickly when a makerspace chain went bankrupt in St. Louis, leaving over 500 local makers in the lurch. Our friends at Cortex gave Jim and Doug the tools they needed to get started, literally. We snagged all the machinery from the old place, hung onto some core staff, hoisted up our skirts and hustled on out of there. After a year spent rehabbing a 100-year old brick bunker of a building on Delmar, we plugged in our gear, polished up the terrazzo floors, and opened our doors in November 2018.

There is work in this world only you can make. Your side hustle, your bright idea, your passion project. MADE is where it’s going to happen. From the ground up. With your own two hands.

About the Croquetterie

The Croquetterie offers top-class all natural appetizers, our Artisan Bites, with Spanish cuisine and Mediterranean diet influences and innovative presentations and taste. Our main bite is the croquette cooked with bechamel and fresh ingredients, and presented with its golden and delicious crispy thin breadcrumb cover. And as not everything in life are croquettes, we also offer you a wide range of sandwiches, fresh cold and hot sips

Laura Benedict - The Stranger Inside

Laura Benedict - The Stranger Inside

7-8:30pm - Left Bank Books welcomes Southern Illinois author Laura Benedcit, who will sign and discuss her new thriller, "The Stranger Inside"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "The Stranger Inside" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

There's a stranger living in Kimber Hannon's St. Louis home. He tells the police that he has every right to be there, and he has the paperwork to prove it. Kimber definitely didn't invite this man to move in. He tells her that he knows something about her, and he wants everyone else to know it too. "I was there. I saw what you did." These words reveal a connection to Kimber's distant past, and dark secrets she'd long ago left buried. This trespasser isn't after anything as simple as her money or her charming Craftsman bungalow. He wants to move into her carefully orchestrated life--and destroy it. "The Stranger Inside" is a chilling, suspenseful psychological drama in the tradition of Shari Lapena and Liane Moriarty.

"A Gift Garden" Book Launch @ The Mahler Ballroom

6:00 PM18:00

"A Gift Garden" Book Launch @ The Mahler Ballroom

You’re invited to “A Gift Garden” book launch party with the CWE Farm & the Mahler Ballroom


On Monday, December 10th, 2018 Arthur and Nancy Culbert of Central West End Farm will celebrate the launch of their illustrated children’s chapter book, A Gift Garden, at the historic Mahler Ballroom from 6-9pm. Tickets for this event range from $25-35, which includes an autographed copy of the book (soft/hardback), one drink ticket, light hors-d'oeuvres, music, and access to the author Q&A. 

A Gift Garden is co-written by Arthur and Nancy Culbert and illustrated by N. Jane Quackenbush. 

The Book Launch Party will begin with doors opening at 6pm, where guests can check-in, get their copy of the book, get the book autographed, grab a bite to eat, get a drink and take a seat around 7pm for a reading and author Q&A emceed by Alexis Zotos, KMOV Reporter and Host of Meet St. Louis podcast. After the Q&A there will be more book signing, food, drinks, and music DJed by FarFetched.

Have you ever had a gnawing feeling in your stomach when you were hungry? Many people have that experience on a daily basis and that is something the Culberts are trying to combat. The launch of A Gift Garden is being held on the 70th anniversary of the first proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is the basis for the book, which promotes the reality that everyone is entitled to food as a part of Article #25. 

The Culberts have been working to eliminate hunger in their community since 2011 when the first seeds of their original gift garden were planted. Since then, the Central West End Farm has produced 16,000 pounds of organic fruits and vegetables, helping feed thousands local food pantry guests.

In A Gift Garden, ten-year-old Beverly Elizabeth Adams prefers to be called Bea. The name that comes from her initials is just one example of how careful she is about the words she uses. When given a summer school assignment about citizens making a difference, Superhero Bea is prompted to explore all that those words could mean. Inspired by a magical scarecrow, Bea and her best friend Sunny come up with a plan to plant a gift garden that will feed the hungry people in their community. Through a magical world of words, music, and teamwork, Bea and her friends explore the wonder of their community. Throughout the story, they become citizens that make a difference. By the end of the school year, they have a bounty to share and more seeds to plant in gift gardens.

Proceeds of the event to benefit Gift Garden Fresh Food Foundation. The Central West End Farm is a non-profit organization.
