Inspired by this year’s Celebrate Water Door County initiative, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) is holding Winter Water Fest, a fun-packed weekend of activities.
From Jan. 30 to Feb. 2, Chicago’s classically trained, Grammy-winning ensemble Third Coast Percussion will be in residence at DCA. The residency will consist of school performances on Jan. 30-31, followed by a public performance on Feb. 1, 7 pm. The performance is titled Paddle to the Sea. Focused around the classic children’s book and Academy Award-nominated film of the same name, Paddle to the Sea explores our relationship to the bodies of water that connect our lives. Third Coast Percussion composed a new score to be performed live with the film. Tickets are $25-48 per person, with $10 tickets available for students.
On Feb. 2, 7 pm, local and regional poets with join with the chamber-music group Nine Worlds Ensemble to present Words on Water. Musicians will pair with poets to create a lively coffeehouse atmosphere and a powerful evening of entertainment.
