MeredithConcert features student musicians

Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra will perform its opening concert of the season this weekend. On Saturday at 7:30 p.m., the concert will take place at the Inter-Lakes Auditorium.

The first of two co-winners from the 2017 Student Concerto and Scholarship Competition will be featured. Roric Cunningham, a sophomore at Manchester High School, will perform Tchaikovsky’s Rocco Variation, a challenging work for the cello repertoire.

This years competition was so difficult to choose one winner that two were picked for the first time in the composition’s history. Fifteen-year-old violinist Danilo Thurber will perform the first movement from Camille Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3 in B Minor in March.

Tickets will be $20 for adults and $10 for college-age students (with ID) and below. Tickets will be sold online at LRSO.org/tickets, at Innisfree Bookshop or at Greenlaw’s Music in Laconia. For more information, call 800-838-3006 or visit LRSO.org.

Concord‘Arcadia’ a comedy in two centuries

The Hatbox Theatre presents a contemporary classic by Glass Dove Productions, Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, Friday through Nov.19, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.

With a split timeline 200 years apart, the residents of Sidley Park, an English estate, find themselves caught up in scandals, deceptions and scientific discovery. The show is presented with an air of mystery and comedic wit.

WolfeboroNouveaux Honkies mix roots and rock

On Wednesday, the Nouveaux Honkies will perform at the barn at The Inn on Main in Wolfeboro. The performance will follow by a dinner, which starts at 6:30 p.m., from the chefs of O’s Bistro.

For band members Tim O’Donnell and Rebecca Dawkins, the road is their home – literally – as they tour with their music in a solar-powered, high-tech rebuilt RV. The pair has been performing together since 2005, when O’Donnell’s guitar shop was leveled by a hurricane and needed income to cover the bills. By 2006, they were playing with a full band.

Since then, they’ve married, created a chart-topping roots album and toured the country.

Tickets for the dinner and show are $40 each and can be purchased online at mlh-events.ticketleap.com/nouveaux-honkies. Some tables of eight to ten are still available, but limited; call 772-708-5000. For more information, mlh-events.ticketleap.com/nouveaux-honkies.
