Onstage Orange City 2018

Onstage Orange City 2018 Features 12 performances from June through August. The Summer features something for everyone, with 1940’s era jazz, award-winning folk music, storytelling, and more, with performers coming from all over the country.

Sioux City’s Ode Storytelling joins with milti-lingual Edem Soul Music to share stories of belonging from our own community on July 4th. Veterans and new citizenship recipients are specially invited to attend and be recognized as we celebrate what it means to be an American.

Jami Lynn, a South Dakota based folk artist, will lead community members in a songwriting workshop before performing her award winning music on July 18th. Lynn is both an accomplished songwriter and a music historian, blending original tunes with traditional settlement songs of the Midwest.

The New-York City-based Duchess will bring their swinging 1930 & 40’s style jazz to Orange City on July 25. The jazz vocal trio will bring an entertaining package that is utterly up-to-date, marked by evergreen swing, sweet toned harmonies, and an irresistible stage presence.

On August 1st, Orange City Arts’ “Oh, the Poss-abilities!” will feature artists with disabilities: violinist and vocalist Gaelynn Lea and storyteller Kevin Kling. They will be showcasing and spotlighting the artwork of our own disability community, and spending some time learning what it means to be truly “accessible.”

The Orange City Area Community Band will perform three concerts (the first of which will accompany Sioux County Relay for Life on June 13th) and SchoolHouse Company Theater is slated to bring us some toe-tapping show tunes from Broadway legends in “The World Goes ‘Round” on August 8th.
