GEORGE WINSTON, one of the most recognized solo pianists in the world, will perform at The Chalberg Theatre at Central Lakes College on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 7:30 pm.

Since 1986, Winston has been raising money for food banks and service organizations and will continue to do so by working with a local food bank in every tour market to hold a canned food drive at the show and by donating 100% of his merchandise sales to the organization. The food bank for this show will be announced. Since 1972, Winston has released 13 solo piano albums, including his beloved seasonal releases December, Autumn, Winter Into Spring, and Summer, as well as Forest, Plains, Linus and Lucy-The Music of Vince Guaraldi, Montana-A Love Story, Love Will Come-The Music of Vince Guaraldi Vol 2 and Night Divides The Day-The Music of The Doors.

In December of 2013, Winston released the digital single "Silent Night" A Benefit for Feeding America, which is available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. 100% of the proceeds are donated to Feeding America, the nationwide network of food banks that feeds 37 million people.

THE ADVICOACH ADVANTAGE

 

We specializes in business coaching, advising, mentoring, training and facilitating strategies to companies at every stage of the business process.

 

Discover the AdviCoach Advantage

An AdviCoach business coach will help you identify and understand which core problems are putting your business at risk. As an advisor, the AdviCoach will provide you with rapid impact strategies to help overcome obstacles and move your business to the next level.
 

The AdviCoach Approach provides our clients with a distinct advantage.

:: Strategic Planning

:: Revenue and Profit Planning

:: Key Performance Indicators Systems

:: Leadership Development Plan

:: Comprehensive Exit Strategy

:: Unique Selling Proposition

:: Organizational Plan

 

 

By combining the best services that traditional consultants and coaches have to offer, AdviCoaches provide clients with the best of both worlds.

 

  

Does your business have a distinct advantage over the competition?

THE ADVICOACH ADVANTAGE

 

We specializes in business coaching, advising, mentoring, training and facilitating strategies to companies at every stage of the business process.

 

Discover the AdviCoach Advantage

 

After completing an extensive study of the way consulting and coaching services have traditionally been delivered, it was easy to see that traditional consultants and coaches have not been able to meet the needs of small and mid-sized business owners.

 

An AdviCoach business coach will help you identify and understand which core problems are putting your business at risk. As an advisor, the AdviCoach will provide you with rapid impact strategies to help overcome obstacles and move your business to the next level.
 

The AdviCoach Approach provides our clients with a distinct advantage.

:: AdviCoach Engagements Include:

:: Strategic Planning

:: Revenue and Profit Planning

:: Key Performance Indicators Systems

:: Performance Incentive Programs

:: Employee Acquisition Planning

:: Operations and Training Manuals

:: Leadership Development Plan

:: Comprehensive Exit Strategy

:: Unique Selling Proposition

:: Organizational Plan

 

 

By combining the best services that traditional consultants and coaches have to offer, AdviCoaches provide clients with the best of both worlds.

 

  

Does your business have a distinct advantage over the competition?

Once Upon a Time...

Jan 09   Davina & The Vagabonds - Chalberg Theatre
Davina Sowers and the Vagabonds have created a stir on the national blues scene with their high-energy live shows, sharp-dressed professionalism, and Sowers’ commanding stage presence. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band is converting audiences one show at a time, from Vancouver to Miami and across Europe. So much more than just a blues act, DATV’s shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages. Davina’s voice and stage presence defy category in a different way. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, but comparisons don’t suffice: Sowers is a true original. www.davinaandthevagabonds.com

Apr 30 - May 02   Servant of Two Masters - Chalberg Theatre
Hilarity abounds in this madcap Italian comedy of lovers, lawyers, servants, and twenty-seven plates of meatballs. Betrothed couple Silvio and Clarice are devastated when a previous fiancé reappears, back-from-the-dead. In this wild farce things, and people, are not what they seem – disguises, traps, and tricks produce a whirlwind of mass confusion. At the center of this mirth is Truffaldino, the scheming – and perpetually hungry – servant who concocts a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once. This commedia dell’arte masterpiece promises laugh-out-loud mayhem that shouldn’t be missed!
