Feed at The Catamounts
If you’ve never experienced a show with The Catamounts in Boulder, then it’s time to look this creative company up. One of The Catamounts recurring series is called FEED and it is a specially curated evening of performance with food and drink. Each one is unique and only has limited tickets available. January 19 and 20, you can check out FEED: Melting Pot which will take place at a private club in Lakewood — the address will be provided when you purchase your tickets. The cryptic show description says, “Starting with the old metaphor about the U.S. — recounting immigration stories by savoring a fusion of different culinary traditions — we’ll ask: when do we need to preserve our separate identities, and are we ever truly one?” If Catamounts’ past history is any indication, it’s sure to be a compelling and fascinating evening, to be sure.

Ohlsson Plays Rachmaninoff at Macky Auditorium
There’s a reason Sergei Rachmaninoff remains one of the most recognizable names in the history of Russian classical composers. He’s widely considered the peak of the late Romantic period composers of any nationality — a list that includes names like Grieg, Dvo?ák, Sibelius, Fauré, Saint-Saëns and Franck — and is most noted for his powerful, almost anthemic melodies and bell-tone, widespread chord structures. He was heavily influenced by Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev, the latter of whom is also featured in the Boulder Philharmonic’s Ohlsson Plays Rachmaninoff at Macky Auditorium on the CU Campus at 7:30 p.m on Jan. 19. The program features world-renowned pianist Garrick Ohlsson and the work of a few other incredible Russian composers as well, like the aforementioned Sergei Prokofiev and Alexander Borodin.
Tickets start at $5 for student; head to www.boulderphil.org for tickets and more information.
