The Lancaster Community Concert Association celebrates 75 years of enriching Fairfield County culture with the Andalusian sounds and spectacle of the Chris Burton Jácome Flamenco Ensemble. A hypnotic guitarist, television composer, and winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Award for world music, Chris Burton Jácome stokes flamenco’s eternal flame with his restless talent and invisible extra fingers. A rousing rhythm section and troupe of dancers, vocalists, and floorboard repairmen join Chris in a mission of mass enchantment, showering audiences in gorgeous melodies and choreographed energy. The lively performance invites audiences to interact, giving giddy limbs and inner megaphones the chance to stomp, clap, and shout “Olé!” or “Someone put out my burning pants leg!”
The oldest surviving theater in central Ohio, the fin de siècle elegance of the Southern Theatre's jewel-box auditorium transports audiences back to the days of vaudeville antics and silver-screen spectacle. Built in 1896 to state-of-the-art standards, the theater's bandshellesque proscenium bucked architectural norms to funnel sound into the seats. Its 204 light bulbs required that the theater generate its own electricity for years, until scientists figured out that nobody needed to worry about that stuff.
