IMPORTANT UPDATE: Although COVID-19 restrictions on large group gatherings do not allow us to return to live concerts to start the 2021-2022 concert season...
LCCCA will continue to offer Virtual Concerts
until we can again gather safely in large groups!
A New Year -
Hope for Tomorrow
2020 has been a bummer!
Join us in January for a Virtual Experience that focuses on how the past can inspire the future. The LCCCA presentation this month was created for and by the young and young-at heart. So don't be surprised if you see live performances by local students, shadow dancing, and social media highlights in...
A New Year: Hope for Tomorrow.
Opening with the Boston Pops and including messages and performances by artists who have appeared through the years on the radio, television, live stage, and social media, we are sure that our memories of the past will take us back to days that now seem less complicated... but will also provide the inspiration that although things may look different today... we have a future that is filled with hope and promises!
Peacherine Ragtime Orchestra
Experience the Peacherine Ragtime Orchestra’s Stage and Screen Spectacular - a musical time machine back to the fun and excitement of the early 20th Century. Tap your feet to the syncopated stylings of the early 1900s - from tongue-in-cheek vocal numbers like "Take Your Girlie To The Movies If You Can't Make Love At Home" to the music of Scott Joplin, George Gershwin, and even Queen. Watch a classic silent film as it would have been seen back in the day, underscored by a live 12 person orchestra with live music and sound effects! It's a program sure to make both young and old smile from ear to ear. Grab your bowler hat and suspenders, park your Model T down the street, and enjoy a trip back in time with Peacherine!
Greg and Tom
For decades Tom Strohman has played saxophone, clarinet, flute, and keyboard in many jazz and commercial music settings, while Greg Strohman has performed as a trombonist and pianist in primarily classical music environments. Both Tom and Greg have been known to branch out into many other musical genres over the years!
Our plans for the 2020-21 spring concert season changed with the onslaught of COVID-19. We had planned to open with a concert that featured the exciting Take3 with Lauren Jelencovitch. Instead we had a ZOOM get-together with concert goers and featured songs and comments from the artists that were scheduled to appear. But we are happy to announce that Take 3 is part of our 2020-21 Virtual Season.
Take3 is an entertaining classical-pop crossover group that brings an exciting twist on classical music to the stage. These classically trained artists present modern, pop songs and play them in ways you haven’t heard before. Music from Bruno Mars, Leonard Cohen, Hans Zimmer, Billy Joel and the Beatles are all re-imagined by Take3.
With a flair for the wild and unexpected, the genre-bending trio, Take3, brings the refinement of a rigorous classical background and mixes it with rock star charisma. Whether performing their take on pop, jazz, or classical tunes, they bring enthusiasm to their interpretations and impart their love of music to audiences of all musical preferences.
Their rigorous classical training at Colburn School and The Juilliard School has ignited their passion for musical exploration and is aiding them in revolutionizing the piano trio experience.
Take3’s fan base continues to grow around the world through each individual’s solo, chamber and orchestral engagements, such as violinist, Lindsay Deutsch and vocalist, Lauren Jelencovitch’s tours with Yanni. Their mission is to connect with fans around the world and impart their love of music to audiences of all ages and musical preferences. They continue to release new music videos and will be releasing a trio album in the 2019-2020 concert season. Members have appeared in major music venues such as Disney Hall, Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Radio City Music Hall in New York, Venice Performing Arts Center and the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.

Take Me Home
The Music of John Denver
Take Me Home: The Music of John Denver as presented by Jim Curry was scheduled to conclude our 86th Concert Season. We are working with Jim and hope to have him appear virtually in Lebanon as a part of the 2020-21 Season.
Jim sings, in his own natural voice, a tribute to the music in a way that has to be seen and heard to understand the pure honesty of his amazing performance. His looks and his voice are simply a pleasant coincidence that captures the true essence of John Denver’s music. Curry’s heartfelt delivery rolls out multi-platinum hits like Rocky Mountain High, Annie’s Song, and Calypso that fill the room with countless memories of days gone by.
To compliment the performance visually, slides and video are played in sync with each song. Some of the video is the original video John Denver used in his own shows. Jim believes that John Denver’s words still ring true in these difficult times of turmoil and environmental crisis. John Denver grew rapidly into a mega celebrity when the world was looking for some hope in the late 60’s and his lyrics in songs like, Take me Home Country Roads, gave America a new lift abroad as well as at home.
People all over the world found pride in the natural wonders of the earth and love for John’s message of caring for our planet and each other. Jim delivers these songs in the same spirit, with the same heartfelt care and desire to make a difference. He produces many tribute experiences and is considered the top performer of John Denver’s music today.
He often performs with John Denver’s former band members and his tribute is the first and only full-length John Denver tribute in a Las Vegas Casino. The show has been seen in Performing Arts Centers and Casinos in the US and Canada and is one of the most popular shows on the Holland America Cruise Line.
