Classic Productions presents Charltote's Web

Charlotte’s Web is based on E.B. White’s loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman. She will create a “miracle.” Spinning the words “Some Pig” in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig but also ensures his place on the farm forever.  

This treasured tale, featuring madcap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love and the true meaning of friendship.

Dvorak's Requiem

Antonín Dvoƙák’s monumental Requiem setting soars in the similar grand Romantic style of the settings of Verdi and Berlioz. Dvoƙák brings to this work a strong sense of dramatic pacing, inventive orchestration, and his own deep religious devotion. From the fire and fury of the “Dies Irae” to the tender pleas of the soloist’s “Pie Jesu”, this performance will captivate, inspire, and engage.

By popular demand, PineCone favorites The Wailin’ Jennys return to Raleigh, and they’ll have some new music to share! Longtime fans of The Jennys will be excited to know that they are road testing new songs for an upcoming studio album! One of today’s most respected folk groups, The Wailin’ Jennys are steeped in the artistry and elegance that has defined their career for more than 15 years. The Wailin’ Jennys are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse - three distinct voices that together make an achingly perfect vocal sound.

Starting as a happy accident of solo singer/songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Wailin’ Jennys have grown over the years into one of today’s most beloved international folk acts. Founding members Moody and Mehta, along with New York-based Masse, continue to create some of the most exciting music on the folk-roots scene, stepping up their musical game with each critically lauded recording and thrilling audiences with their renowned live performances.

NPR wrote of their most recent Newport Folk Fest appearance, “The Wailin’ Jennys are more than just impeccable bluegrass harmonizers; they’re also terrific bandleaders who give their traditional roots music a sense of real reverence.” It’s this respect for their craft, as well as The Wailin’ Jennys heartfelt, impeccable vocal performances, that has cemented the trio’s reputation in folk and roots music circles.
