10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Throughout his long and distinguished career, Seattle native and Lawrence, Kansas-based artist Roger Shimomura has made prints in a style inspired by his childhood interest in comic books and the traditions of American pop art and Japanese woodcut prints. Born in 1939, Shimomura spent part of his childhood, during WWII, in an internment camp in Idaho and his subsequent work as an artist explores the unique position of being seen as an outsider in one's own country.

Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper has been organized by Director John Olbrantz to complement Roger Shimomura: An American Knockoff, which opens January 17, 2015, in the Melvin Henderson-Rubio Gallery. 

Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper
 features 29 prints drawn from local and regional collections, including works from his Minidoka Snapshots and Mistaken Identity series, both of which deal with internment camp issues.

The Willamette University Chamber Choir and Willamette Singers, under the direction of Wallace Long, will perform Saturday, Jan. 10 at 7:00 p.m. at Willamette University’s Hudson Hall, 900 State Street, Salem, Ore.  This is the first concert that will "kick-off" the choir's 2015 tour to select Oregon and Washington locations from January 11th through the 16th.

Choirs from South Salem High School, under the direction of Will McClean, and North Salem High School, under the direction of Dr. Kerry Burtis, will also perform in the classical portion of the concert. The concert will open with a vocal jazz performance by the Willamette Singers, followed by the high school choirs, and will close with the Willamette Chamber Choir. The concert is free and open to the public, although a goodwill donation is encouraged.

The performance will include a variety of sacred and secular works, both a cappella and accompanied. The Chamber Choir’s performance will include “Past Life Melodies,” by Sarah Hopkins; “O Magnum Mysterium,” by Kevin Memley; and “How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place,” from the Brahms’ “Requiem.” The Willamette Singers will perform selections including “Air Mail Special,” by Benny Goodman; “Stella by Starlight,” by Victor Young; and “Sent for You Yesterday,” by William “Count” Basie.

The Willamette Chamber Choir is a 44-voice ensemble that performs throughout the Northwest. Archbishop Desmond Tutu invited the choir to perform in South Africa in 2004, and music from their South African tour is featured on their fifth CD, “Thula Sizwe: A Celebration of Hope.” Their latest CD, “The New Moon,” is a compilation of recordings from 2006-’10 and was released in the fall of 2010. The Willamette Chamber Choir performed at the Northwest Regional Convention of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) in Seattle in March, 2012.

The Willamette Singers is a 17-member vocal jazz ensemble. The Singers’ eighteenth CD, “Love, My Old Friend,” was released in the fall of 2014. The Willamette Singers performed at the National Convention of the ACDA in Dallas, Texas in March, 2013 and at the Northwest Regional Convention of ACDA in Seattle in March, 2014. DownBeat Magazine selected the Singers as the Best Large Collegiate Vocal Jazz Ensemble in the nation for 2013-’14.

Both groups have recently performed at regional, national and international conventions of the American Choral Directors Association, the Music Educators National Conference, the Oregon Music Educators Association and the International Association of Jazz Educators.

Willamette Chamber Choir members Rudy Trevino, Alea Bellish, Maddy Goldman, Clifford Grimmell, Collyn Johnson, Matt Kenagy,  Madison Hall, Haley Sawyer, Kendra Smith, Jane Tanabe and Sam Utley from Salem will be performing in the concert.
