Venture away from the festival crowds this Friday and explore all things fresh in the local art world. Here’s your monthly Art Walk guide, courtesy of the Wenatchee First Fridays Art Walk organization.
WENATCHEE — Under the direction of Dawn McCormick, the choir teacher at Wenatchee High School, the Vocal Jazz Ensemble competed in the Heritage Festival in New Orleans on April 23, winning First Place. Best of all, the choir took home the top award for most Outstanding Choir (of every type of choir present) for the entire event.
WENATCHEE — Daina Toevs carries around two fat binders — one white and one blue. In them, the director of this year's Apple Blossom Musical keeps her notes, pictures, endless sheets of music and the script for one enormous show. The Disney classic "Mary Poppins" opens Wednesday at the Numerica Performing Arts Center with a cast of 52 and a larger-than-normal budget for the non-profit Music Theatre of Wenatchee — somewhere between $80,000 and $90,000.
Classic rockers Cheap Trick will play at the Town Toyota Center at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 25. Tickets are $29 to $52 and are available at the Town Toyota Center box office, online at towntoyotacenter.com, or by calling 667-7847.
