Cancelled - Chanticleer

This event has been cancelled - Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker, the San Francisco-based Grammy Award-winning ensemble Chanticleer celebrates its 40th anniversary as part of the 2019-20 Noorda season. Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for its “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity,” Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for its seamless blend of 12 male voices, ranging from soprano to bass, and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renais­sance to jazz and popular genres, as well as contemporary composition.

*Canceled* Laura Marling

Laura Marling is canceling her entire tour. Please visit www.thestateroompresents.com for more details.

"Since the release of her acclaimed debut album, Alas I Cannot Swim in 2008, Laura Marling has swiftly and confidently become one of the UK’s most singular and gifted of British artists. Barely out of her twenties and yet currently working diligently on what will become her seventh studio album later this year, Laura has that rare charm of being instantly recognisable by her voice and phrasing, and yet none of her records sound alike. Imbued with the rich story-telling qualities that has come to define many of the greats of their generation, Laura’s music is not defined by one genre alone. Each of her six albums; all melody and poetry, reveal a new phase of this lauded musician’s story. It’s a story that has taken her right across the world, performing alongside the venerable likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young, winning a BRIT Award and being nominated for a Grammy and multiple Mercury Prize awards too, Laura’s name carries a unique weight for the quality of her work and its timelessness. Fiercely independent but a keen collaborator, Laura’s side-project, LUMP, in partnership with Mike Lindsay of Tunng, released a standout, self-titled debut album in the Summer of 2018, and there’s more due to come from LUMP soon too. Laura embarks on a global solo tour throughout the Spring, and is putting the finishing touches to new material due for release later this year.

How Storytelling Fuels Social Movements: Female Genital Mutilation in America

About the lecture: In late 2015, the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) was rarely discussed in Maryum Saifee's community; the Dawoodi Bohra Muslims concentrated in South Asia. In the media and in public discourse, FGM was framed as a faraway practice happening in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East. Frustrated by the way FGM was framed, Maryum decided to share her story as a survivor – in her personal capacity - to help raise public awareness and shift the public narrative. In early 2016, the Guardian published her story and she went from working behind the scenes on policy to stumbling into a more public role as an activist, using her own story as an advocacy tool and a catalyst for change. In late 2018, a federal district judge in Detroit overturned the federal ban on FGM in the United States. Maryum’s lecture will inform about FGM in the United States and how American survivors of FGM are using storytelling and social media to push for legislative bans at the state level, generate public awareness, and ultimately break the cycle of violence. Come join us as Maryum shares her perspective in this riveting lecture!

Bill Maher

Look for updates.  The Eccles has been closed since the end of March until May 15th.  

Live at the Eccles presents Bill Maher: Live Stand Up Tour  ArtTix is the official source for tickets for Live at the Eccles events. For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect”  and for the last fourteen years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 38 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, “VICE.” In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever. Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters all across the country. Four of his ten stand-up specials for HBO – 2014’s “Bill Maher: Live from DC,” 2007’s “The Decider,” 2005’s “I’m Swiss,” as well as the hilarious, “Bill Maher … But I’m Not Wrong,” – have been nominated for Emmy awards.
