24th-25th - Spokane Symphony: Debussy & Mahler
Claude Debussy's "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun," was a turning point in the history of music. One of the most famous openings in the orchestral repertoire is the piece's magical flute solo, played by our own Principal Flute Bruce Bodden. Mahler's Symphony No.5 was a turning point for him. It has become one of the quintessential showcases for orchestra, where each player is a virtuoso. Alongside Debussy and Mahler is an exciting contemporary work by composer and nightclub DJ, Mason Bates, who blurs the lines between classical and electronica in "Mothership."

7th-8th - Spokane Symphony: Tchaikovsky
Award-winning violinist Benjamin Beilman is making his Spokane debut to perform Sibelius's sole contribution to the concerto genre. With its powerful combination of virtuosity and symphonic orchestral writing, it will be a performance to remember. Sought-after guest Conductor Robert Moody wields the baton, taking us on the emotional power trip that is Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4. From the first fateful horn call to the frenetic ending - this is Tchaikovsky at his best.

The Philadelphia Inquirer called Beilman "poised and monstrously talented," while the Washington Post described his playing as giving the "illusion of tossed-off ease...mightily impressive." Beilman will be appearing for Augustin Hadelich, whose Spokane return has been postponed due to a scheduling conflict.

28th-March 1st - Spokane Symphony: Beethoven & Schubert
It is dangerous to assume simplistic connections between the events in artists' lives and the music they create. Schubert learned that he was seriously ill when he composed his colorful Symphony No. 8, the most romantic of all his symphonies. Facing the news of his inevitable deafness, Beethoven was suicidal while writing his Second Symphony. Yet Berlioz remarked: "this Symphony is smiling throughout." Magical and haunting textures alternate with extraordinary playfulness in the other-worldly masterpiece by Estonian Arvo Pärt. Scored for two solo violins, strings and prepared piano, it is a showcase for Principal Second Violin Amanda Howard-Phillips and Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski.

1st - Alton Brown LIVE! The Edible Incredible Tour
INB Performing Arts Center

With his upcoming tour, Alton Brown brings his brand of quirky humor and culinary-science antics to the stage. The two-hour show is a unique blend of stand up comedy, food experimentation, talk show antics, multimedia lecture, and, for the first time...live music. Audience interaction is strictly enforced throughout the evening, though if you’re called upon as a culinary assistant you’ll definitely want to take the lab coat Brown offers, as things tend to get messy. Brown has worked his weird magic on live audiences across the nation for over a decade but this is the first time he’s actually hit the road with a live tour. The entire family will have a blast, especially as you sing along with Brown’s soon to be hits “Airport Shrimp Blues” and “TV Cookin Ain’t Like No Other Cookin”.

Get an exclusive opportunity to meet Alton Brown! More details on website.

Experience Camelot’s “one brief shining moment” as Lerner and Loewe envisioned it in one of theatre’s most legendary musicals. Recount the time-honored legend of King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, and the Knights of the Round Table in an enchanting fable of chivalry, majesty, and brotherhood in this four-time Tony Award® winning show.

Camelot tells the story of the legend of King Arthur who rules his kingdom with new ideals, bringing peace to a troubled land. But when his beautiful new Queen Guinevere and the dashing Sir Lancelot, his most trusted knight, give in to their passion for one another, one of the most fabled love triangles of all time ensues. When Mordred, King Arthur’s illegitimate son, catches on and sees a kingdom in chaos, he attempts to destroy all that is Camelot!

Intimate and fresh, never has this story of passion, pageantry and betrayal been more captivating. The celebrated score includes the classics “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “The Simple Joys of Maidenhood,” and the title song, “Camelot.”

12th - Stage to Screen Film Series / Great Expectations
For the very first time, the Dickens classic GREAT EXPECTATIONS will be staged in London's West End, and audiences around the world will be able to share the historic opening night experience at their local theater. Although Great Expectations has been adapted for film on two separate occasions, once by David Lean in 1946 and most recently by Mike Newell, it has never been produced for The West End or Broadway, widely believed to be too difficult to translate to stage. However, this Jo Clifford adaptation has been universally acclaimed as a triumph on its sellout tour of the UK head of its West End debut. The live broadcast will take place on Thursday, February 7,2013 and include red carpet, arrivals and behind the scenes footage exclusively for participating theaters with encore screenings available beginning March 2013. The event will form part of the global celebrations surrounding the 200th Anniversary of the Dickens' birth.

18th-19th - Spokane Symphony: Musical Sorcery
Ukranian-born Valentina Lisitsa, a social media darling with more than 62 million views on YouTube, performs the virtuosic "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Her self assured, expressive style is well-suited to Rachmaninoff's enthralling and diabolical dance. Also presented is Dukas' dramatic "Sorcerer's Apprentice," made famous by the Disney-animated movie Fantasia. Accompanying this program is a piece by the most frequently performed American composer of our time: John Adams. His "Doctor Atomic Symphony," about the first nuclear bomb test, is based on his opera of the same name. Cast in a single movement, it bundles its energy to an emotional meltdown with a humanistic message.

23rd-26th - Guys & Dolls
INB Performing Arts Center

Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy - considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy - soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform the evildoers of Times Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.

17th - Stage to Screen Film Series / Caesar & Cleopatra
CAESAR AND CLEOPATRA is a witty and seductive comedy about the relationship between a veteran Roman political strategist and an enchanting Egyptian teenage queen.

Now movie audiences can witness the acclaimed performance of legendary Canadian actor Christopher Plummer, and experience the drama, intrigue and comedy of George Bernard Shaw's celebrated play. The production also stars Nikki M. James, who later went on to receive the 2011 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as Nabulungi in The Book of Mormon. The high quality production captures the true experience of witnessing Shaw's celebrated play on the prestigious Stratford Festival stage. Suited for audiences 18+
