The Vocal Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Band from Southwestern Oregon Community College, along with the UMPQUA SINGERS from Umpqua Community College are teaming up with the Liberty Theatre Restoration Committee to present an evening of “All That Jazz” at the Liberty Theatre on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 7:00 PM.


Doors will open at 6:00 PM, and admission is by donation. The UMPQUA SINGERS have graciously offered this concert on the south coast so that the proceeds from the evening can be split between the Southwestern Music Program (for their upcoming trip to New York City) and the Liberty Theatre Restoration.


THE UMPQUA SINGERS from Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, are one of the premiere vocal jazz ensembles in the Pacific Northwest. This ten-member group performs a broad range of musical styles ranging from traditional swing to contemporary R & B. With eighteen CD’s to their credit, the group performs up to fifty engagements per year. The UMPQUA SINGERS have toured across the United States, and were the featured performers at the Capitol Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington D.C. on December 12, 2002. They have also recently toured Spain, Ukraine, Brazil, Ireland, and Hong Kong. In addition to frequent radio and television broadcasts, the Umpqua Singers have been featured on FOX, C-SPAN, and XM Satellite Radio.

The Southwestern Jazz Band and Vocal Jazz Ensemble are headed to the New York City Jazz Festival in April, performing at the world-famous Apollo Theatre. The two organizations will perform their NYC Jazz Festival program preceding the concert by the UMPQUA SINGERS.

​Dorothy Meets Alice is a new play version of the delightful meeting of two of literature's most famous young ladies unfolds when a young man puts off a book report till the last minute, then suddenly finds himself in a strange place somewhere between Oz and Wonderland. It then becomes his responsibility to unscramble the stories and steer the familiar characters—the Cowardly Lion, the Mad Hatter, the Scarecrow and the White Rabbit, among others—to their ultimate destinations while avoiding the Wicked Witch and the Red Queen. This hilarious, adventuresome romp is filled with laughter and surprises at every turn. And a couple of lessons emerge along the way as well.

                                                                       
In Big Bad is the Wolf a villain or victim? The Three Pigs: innocent or at fault? The Jurors, Miss Muffet, Bo Peep, Cinderella and Humpty-Dumpty, are they solid citizens or characters with a past? Is justice on his side—or does he have a secret to hide?
