CALDWELL — The sky is the limit with the 2011-2012 season of Caldwell Fine Ats.

Classic … Fresh … Timeless … Contemporary … Across genres, the arts have a unique power to infuse our lives with beauty … to elevate us. The new season explores this diverse beauty through a eclectic offering of music, drama, dance and visual art.

“We celebrate music that has stood the test of time, joins us to history as we relish tunes enjoyed by audiences centuries ago,” CFA manager Sylvia Hunt, said. “We celebrate dance from another continent, connecting to a culture different from our own. We celebrate folk traditions from another millennium and delight equally in the latest musical innovations. It’s going to be quite a journey. We invite audiences to join us on this remarkable season of ‘Elevation!’”

CFA’s 51st season highlights the outstanding acoustics of Jewett Auditorium on The College of Idaho campus and provides a glimpse of the world through the international flavor of Celtic, Scottish, Russian, Austrian, and Spanish traditions. Classical and contemporary are combined in programs that will appeal to all ages.

All performances are set for 7:30 p.m. with the exception of the Missoula Children’s Theatre matinee performance of “King Arthur’s Quest” on Saturday,

Feb. 25, 2012.

Caldwell Fine Arts will work in partnership with the college’s Bon Appetit food service to make “themed suppers” available before certain programs.

“Caldwell Fine Arts is excited about the opportunity to highlight local performers with international artists,” Hunt said. “In our very first program of the season, the local artists are the program. Two years ago, The College of Idaho Showcase was one of the most enjoyable programs we offered. This program gives them a chance to be appreciated as artists.”
