Close the doors on winter chills and join the CWSO as they welcome Chaise Lounge for a stop on their TUNDRA TOUR! The band will be blowing in on February 25th and 26th and have promised a hot night in the Theater @1800 with their cool jazz standards backed by the CWSO. These six band members comprise some of the best of the east coast musicians around today. We’ll start the program off with Bernstein and Gershwin and then slide back into time to a “blend of music that sounds like it was recorded at Capitol Recording Studios in 1962 and somehow found its way to today’s pop charts.”
The story of Yoni Netanyahu is an intimate journey into one of Israel’s greatest soldiers. Drawn from Yoni’s own letters and words, featuring never before seen footage, interviews and archival materials, the film unveils the complex character of this thoroughly modern young hero.
An Open Door is a feature-length documentary on the uplifting story of how a small Asian nation was able to save over 1,300 Jews as they fled the pogroms of Nazi Germany.

This unique film will explore the rare confluence of the Pacific and European theaters. It juxtaposes momentous events in history such as the passage of the Nuremberg Laws and the inauguration of the Philippines as a Commonwealth of the United States. An Open Door is the story of a deep friendship borne of common adversity and intense love for freedom. Together, Filipinos and Jews struggled, endured and ultimately prevailed.
