Abundance

Fridays & Saturdays, 8:00 pm; Sundays, 2:00 pm

The Pecatonica Playhouse 314 N. Main St. Pecatonica Illinois
"Abundance" From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Crimes of the Heart comes this poignant but unromanticized story of the hard lives of pioneers on the high plains of Wyoming in the 1860's. Macon and Bess are two mail-order brides, lured to the West by the promise of new beginnings through marriage to men they have never met. While waiting for their respective husbands-to-be, one bubbling with optimism, the other mousy and plain, the two women become instant best friends. As Abundance follows the two women through their friendship and adventures for the next 25 years, this Western epic unearths the dark underside of American mythology. Showtimes Fri and Sat @ 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. For tickets call 815-239-1210 or bu online at www.pecplayhouse.org

RSO Presents: Celebrating International Peace Day

7:30pm

Coronado Theatre Rockford, IL
Sir Andrzej Panufnik Procession for Peace
Sergey Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 1 in D major
Bella Hristova, violin
Carl Nielsen Symphony No. 4 “The Inextinguishable”

Panufnik, a Polish composer who defected to Britain, dedicated his Procession for Peace “to peace-loving people of every race and religion, of every political and philosophical creed.” Prokofiev wrote his dreamy first violin concerto during World War I, and its peaceful serenity stands in sharp contrast to that War’s destruction. Danish composer Nielsen wrote his Fourth Symphony against the backdrop of that war, giving it the subtitle “The Inextinguishable”, referring to the power of the human will to live.

Ticket prices are $22-58. Student tickets are available for $7.
