• LCCC Civic Orchestra to Play Brief Selections in “Short Stuff”: The Lorain County Community College Civic Orchestra will keep the music short and sweet in an upcoming concert at LCCC’s Stocker Arts Center. The orchestra will perform a series of shorter pieces in a concert called “Short Stuff,” at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, February 6.
Tickets are $7 for adults; $6 for LCCC students, staff and seniors 65 and older; and $5 each for groups of 15 or more. Tickets may be purchased online at www.lorainccc.edu/stocker, or by calling the Stocker Arts Center box office at 800-995-5222 (ext. 4040) from 12-6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets are also available at the box office, located in the lobby of the Stocker Arts Center.
The family-friendly concert will feature selections used in movies, television, commercials and cartoons and is specifically designed for those who are interested in hearing orchestral music played beautifully, but may not be prepared to sit through a full-length, major composition. From the contemplation of a seductive courtesan who is thinking about becoming a nun to a song about long, tall ears, this concert bill spans about three centuries and several stylistic periods. From stately to sensual, somber to silly, the concert provides a unique experience, a little bit at a time.
