Jefferson College Performing Arts and Cultural Enrichment (PACE)
The alignment of the sun, moon & earth that creates a solar eclipse, is called a syzygy. The Ancient Greek meaning of this word is “yoked together,” and similarly, we as humans are all yoked together on this planet. The breath-taking diversity of our common human experience is reflected in this year’s PACE calendar, bringing both familiar favorites and new cultures to explore.
Every one of us has a unique voice, a story, a message to share. This year, PACE brings you the voices of award-winning jazz artist, Jazzmeia Horn, the country stylings of hometown hero-turned Nashville star, Jacqueline Rose, an unforgettable cabaret experience with Keith Boyer, and the high-energy pop sounds of a cappella sensation, Vocal Edge.
Singing isn’t the only thing that yokes us together. We use movement, dance, and film, like the Gentlemen of Vision, who will present their uplifting and award-winning documentary along with a live step dance performance. We use instruments, like world-renowned saxophonist Grace Kelly, and percussionist Matt Henry, who will present an interactive journey through the Drumming Cultures of the World.
Finally, we can use words and actions to show that despite our superficial differences, the human bond of love and respect runs deep. Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic who risked her own life to rescue Jewish children from Nazi death camps during World War II, and is the inspiration for the Life in a Jar program.
Join us this season, as we celebrate syzygy, in the sky, on the stage & in our community.
