    The Keshet Center for the Arts has always been a community leader when it comes inclusiveness and innovation in the local and statewide dance scene. Artistic director Shira Greenburg retired the much loved Nutcracker on the Rocks in 2016 and is back with a new show and another year of storytelling through self-introspection with Alice, an Adventure of Wonder and Wondering. As with all of Keshet's heart-filled performances, the show features dancers both professional and community-based from ages 8 to 80 of all abilities. Loosely based on Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and loaded with the classic rock and jazz selections we've come to expect from the art sanctuary of Keshet, there are plenty of showings, including two sensory-friendly performances. Shows are Fridays, Nov. 9 and 16 at 7pm, Saturdays, Nov. 10 and 17 at 2pm and 7pm, Sundays, Nov. 11 and 18 at 2pm and 4:30pm, and a special performance on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7pm. Prices include children 5 and under for $12.50, student, senior and military tickets are $25 and general admission for $30. Celebrate the arts for another joyous year with Keshet.

  • Afternoon of the Piano

    Pianist Elias-Axel Pettersson performs a captivating and very archly listenable solo piano concert at the Jewish Community Center on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 pm. Pettersson is renowned for his clarity of tone and dynamic style. He performs vivid and passionately accurate renditions of much of the solo piano catalogue, from classical to contemporary. The pianist is from Albuquerque but has grown—through a number of national and international recitals masterclasses and awards—as an instrumentalist to be reckoned with and is now recognized as a Mason & Hamlin Concert Artist. Pettersson is also known as a clinician and teacher and has three albums on the Axel Records label. He is Artistic Director of Southwest Piano Festival, a program he founded in 2015. For the concert at the JCC, Pettersson is bringing in his own grand piano. His wide-ranging program that afternoon includes works like Felix Mendelssohn's Rondo Capriccioso, George Gershwin's Three Preludes and the modernist composition Etude for the Left Hand by Felix Blumenfeld—as well as pieces by Mozart, Ravel and Franck. Advance tickets are $15 for seniors and JCC members, and $18 for general admission. All tickets are $20 at the door. (August March)
