Support Kirkland Performance Center at KPC’s 2nd Annual Benefit Concert with Geoffrey Castle August 23

 

 

Kirkland Performance Center (KPC), the Eastside’s premier performance venue, announces KPC’s 2nd Annual Benefit Concert with Geoffrey Castle on August 23, 2014 at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $25 for the all-ages show.

 

Powerhouse violinist and local music legend Geoffrey Castle headlines an amazing night of music and dance to benefit KPC.  Get ready to dance to the electric violin, Darin Watkins's drums, Lennox Holness' bass, Brooke Lizotte’s keyboard, Fleurs D'Egypte Belly Dancers, and the Seattle Irish Dance Company.

 

With a fresh approach to traditional Celtic music, Geoffrey Castle brings the electric six-string violin front and center with his unmatched showmanship.  A soloist and a bandleader, Castle is well-known for high energy performances and unique collaborations with musicians and dancers that combine Celtic music with rock, pop, and jazz—a new sound for the 21st century.

 

Geoffrey Castle demonstrates his support for KPC with this benefit concert: “The Kirkland Performance Center is a treasure for the Eastside Community that deserves all the support in the world for the work they do here.  I have been producing concerts at KPC for more than a decade and I look forward to playing music in this beautiful theater for many years to come!  It is my pleasure to come and perform as part of this special evening. I can’t wait to see all of Kirkland come out to support the cause!”

 

All proceeds will go directly to support KPC's 16th season of music, dance, theater, film, comedy, and family programming, and arts education initiatives. Tickets are on sale now at www.kpcenter.org, by phone at 425.893.9900, or at the Box Office at 350 Kirkland Avenue, Kirkland WA, 98033.
