Chris Koza headlines Cool Beanz Coffeehouse PDF Print E-mail

Minneapolis indie-rock artist, Chris Koza is headlining Cool Beanz Coffeehouse on Wednesday, February 15, 2012.  Heading out on the road, Chris will be performing pieces from his solo endeavors The Dark Delirious Morning, A Friend of a Friend, Patterns, and Exit Pesce, which you can stream here:

Chris will also perform selections from his band, Rogue Valley. The group wrote, recorded and released a four album project depicting the seasons (I. Crater Lake, II. The Bookseller’s House, III. Geese in the Flyway and IV. False Floors) in one year.

Chris Koza performs as both a solo artist, as part of ensemble shows, and primarily with his band Rogue Valley.  His song-writing carries a strong emphasis on the lyrical and poetic elements, with styling and textures rooted in folk and Americana traditions.  It is impossible to ignore his influences through a classic and contemporary pop music lineage including the likes of The Zombies, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Velvet Underground, Tom Waits, Jackson Browne, Greg Brown, Elliot Smith, Ryan Adams, Brendon Benson, and Fleet Foxes, to name a few.

Rogue Valley is a band born of grandiose ambition: in a single year, they have written, recorded, and successfully released four full length albums, each one sonically steeped in the season of its creation. Together, the four albums tell a sweeping story of love, loss, regret and hope that is inseparable from the geography of classic American wanderlust. The 46 songs act as chapters, standing strongly on their own, yet creating an undeniably rich experience when taken as a whole. Few bands are so productive in an entire career, yet Rogue Valley and songwriter Chris Koza have realized a breadth of ambition that is beyond simple prolificacy – the entire series stands out for its dynamism, craft, impeccable production and fantastic songwriting.

Nova Singers Presents: Sun & Moon, Sea & Sky PDF Print E-mail

Nova Singers, under the direction of Dr. Laura Lane, presents two performances of Sun & Moon, Sea & Sky, Saturday, February 11 at 7:30 pm, at First Lutheran Church, Galesburg, and Sunday, February 12 at 4:00pm, at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Davenport.

As different as night is from day, so are the selections for this thematic program.  The lush somorities of Eric Whitacre’s Nox Aurumque, the poignant sadness of Tormis’ Singing Aboard Ship, and the uplifting inspiration of Clausen’s In Pace make this a concert that should not be missed!  Additionally, Nova will bring to the audience Szeroka Woda, a set of Polish folk songs, arranged by Górecki, as well as the smooth, soothing sound of Cells Planets, arranged by Vince Peterson.

Artistic Director Dr. Laura Lane is very moved by the stories found in the music, saying, “There are so many powerful stories in this program. In Nox Aurumque, an angel is being forced to go to war and doesn’t think she can. In Singing Aboard Ship, women sing as they watch their husbands and sons being taken away to serve on a ship.”

Nova Singers will also be joined by local high school singers for our annual Project Sing! performances. The 2012 guests include students from the Macomb High School Concert Choir, directed by Melanie Butcher, performing in the Galesburg concert, and students from the Moline High School Concert Choir, directed by Ron May, performing in the Davenport concert.  Dr. Lane is excited to be working with high school students again.  “The Project Sing students are doing a fantastic job!  I believe this will be one of the best collaborations between high school students and Nova Singers that we’ve ever done.”

Nova Singers, a professional vocal ensemble under the direction of Dr. Laura Lane, delivers this singular program to feed your musical tastes.  Nova Singers is known for bringing a wide variety of choral music to its audiences, and for the beauty and charm the singers impart to their music.  Dr. Lane has been serving the greater Galesburg and Quad-Cities communities since 1986, bringing her passion for music and expressive singing to audiences and singers alike.

Tickets will be available at the door. Admission is $16 for adults and $12 for seniors. Students are admitted free of charge.  For information about group rates, tickets, recordings, or other Nova Singers events, call 309-341-7038, or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Sun & Moon, Sea & Sky is sponsored by the Riverboat Development Authority.  Nova Singers’ 2011-2012 season is partially funded by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council.
