Overture Awards Finals Competition and Awards Ceremony | Sat., March 9 | Aronoff Center – Jarson-Kaplan Theater

CAA_Overture AwardsCINCINNATI, OH – The Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) is proud to present the 2019 Overture Awards Finals Competition. The Overture Awards provides $4,000 to six area high school students for education and training expenses, with eighteen finalists each winning $1,000. The program also provides a $2,500 Arts Educator Award for Excellence in Arts Instruction.

The Overture Awards Finals Competition and Awards Ceremony will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 1:00 PM at the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theater. Winners will be announced immediately following the competition.  The Visual Art finalists exhibition will be in Aronoff Center’s Center Stage Room (next to the Weston Art Gallery on Seventh Street) from Tuesday, March 5 – Saturday, March 9.

This year, 424 students were nominated by their schools or studios to compete in one of six artistic disciplines: Creative Writing, Dance, Instrumental Music, Theater, Visual Art, and Vocal Music. The Overture Awards was developed to recognize, encourage, and reward excellence in the arts among Tri-state students in grades 9-12. It also provides students an opportunity to share their talents and interests among their peers in a supportive environment outside of their individual schools. There are three levels of competition: Regional, Semi-Final, and Final.

The Overture Awards Regional Competitions were held on January 26 at the Immanuel School of Music, Northern Kentucky University, and Mount Saint Joseph University. The top twenty percent of competitors in each discipline advanced to the Semi-Finals, which were held at the Aronoff Center on February 7-9. Twenty-four finalists (four in each discipline) will compete in the Finals Competition at the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theater on March 9.

Now in its twenty-third year, The Overture Awards was launched in 1996 by the Cinergy Foundation (now Duke Energy) and Leadership Cincinnati (a program of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber). The Overture Awards is funded and administered by the Cincinnati Arts Association, which operates and manages the Aronoff Center and Music Hall. The Overture Awards also relies on hundreds of volunteers from the community who help raise funds, adjudicate and manage the competitions, and nurture the program. 

THE OVERTURE AWARDS ARE ENDOWED BY THE OTTO M. BUDIG FAMILY FOUNDATION.

Tim Allen recently wrapped the 6th season of his hit sitcom “Last Man Standing” on ABC. He can currently be seen performing stand-up to sold-out crowds at venues across the country. Allen can next be seen starring in Netflix’s new dark comedy film “El Camino Christmas” along with Vincent D’Onofrio, Luke Grimes, Dax Shepard, Kimberly Quinn and Jimmy O. The film is expected to be released later this year around Christmas. He will also be reprising his role as Buzz Lightyear in “Toy Story 4” set for release in 2019.

Allen honed his talents as a stand-up comic throughout the eighties, providing the perfect lead-in to his highly successful ABC television series “Home Improvement” where he garnered a Golden Globe Award, an Emmy nomination, and was honored with the People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Male Performer in a Television Series” for an unprecedented eight years in a row.

During “Home Improvement’s” run at the top of the prime-time charts, Tim revisited his comedy roots with a successful national concert tour. He also found time to pen his first book about the male perspective,Don’t Stand Too Close to a Naked Man, topping the New York Times Bestseller List.   This was followed by his second bestseller I’m Not Really Here focusing on midlife, family and quantum physics.

In 1999, during the final season of “Home Improvement,” Tim was honored with the TV Guide Award for Favorite Actor in a Comedy Series. In a tearful farewell, Tim hung up his tool belt, shifting his film career into high gear with resounding success.

He made his film debut in 1994, playing a holiday icon in “The Santa Clause,” earning him another People’s Choice Award.   In 1995, he voiced the beloved, yet deluded, space ranger Buzz Lightyear in the CGI smash hit “Toy Story.”

In 1997, Allen starred in the hit comedies “Jungle 2 Jungle” and “For Richer or Poorer.” To the delight of moviegoers, in 1999 Tim reprised his character Buzz Lightyear in “Toy Story 2” which grossed over $250 million. This was followed by the hit film “Galaxy Quest.”   Representing the ‘Average Joe,’ Tim starred in “Joe Somebody” and in 2001 he starred in the comedy “Big Trouble.”   In 2002, Tim took on the role of Critical Jim in “Who Is Cletis Tout?,” and he helped kick off the holiday season that year reprising his role in  “The Santa Clause 2.”   In 2004, he starred opposite Jamie Lee Curtis in the comedy “Christmas with the Kranks.”

In 2006, Allen starred in “The Santa Clause 3,” in which he once again reprised his role as Santa Claus.  That same year he starred in the comedy “Zoom” and in the updated version of the Disney classic “The Shaggy Dog.” In 2007, he starred opposite John Travolta, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy in the hit comedy “Wild Hogs.” In 2008 Allen starred in the drama “Redbelt.”

In 2010, Allen reprised his role as Buzz Lightyear in “Toy Story 3.”  That same year he starred in his feature film directorial debut “Crazy On The Outside” with Sigourney Weaver and Ray Liotta.

In 2013, Allen reprised his role as Buzz Lightyear in “Toy Story of Terror,” a spooky tale featuring all of the favorite “Toy Story” characters.

ONE FUNNY MOTHER | Thu., March 21 | Cincinnati Music Hall Ballroom

caa_onefunnymotherlogo

CINCINNATI, OH – One Funny Mother Dena Blizzard, the viral video star and off-Broadway comedy sensation, will bring her hit one-woman show to Cincinnati’s Music Hall Ballroom on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 1:00 PM & 7:30 PM. Dena’s hilariously relatable collection of stories will make you realize you’re not crazy, but motherhood sure is! The show is part of Cincinnati Arts Association’s 2018-19 Presenting Season.

Tickets go on sale Friday, February 8 at 10:00 AM at www.CincinnatiArts.org, (513) 621-ARTS [2787], and the Aronoff Center and Music Hall Ticket Offices. Due to adult themes, language, and alcohol use, One Funny Mother is suitable for mature audiences ages 18 and over.

One Funny Mother stars comedian, former Miss New Jersey, and married mother of three, Dena Blizzard, in her hilarious solo comedy show about the trials and tribulations of motherhood and marriage. An outrageous and side-splitting 80 minutes of sass follows Dena on her hilarious journey through a typical day as a mom as she prepares for her big “Girls Night Out.” Along the way, she laments how her life and marriage have changed since becoming a mother of three, wrestling with the eternal question, “Have I gone crazy since having these kids?” The answer is a hysterical, “laugh ’til your face hurts” comedy that you won’t want to miss!

Dena Blizzard first gained notoriety as the “Target mom” from her “Back to School Rant” (96 million views) and “Chardonnay Go” (24 million views) viral videos. She is a comedian and mother of three who has starred Off-Broadway in her one-woman show One Funny Mother, created “Chardonnay Go, The Board Game for Wine Lovers, Moms and Other Shameless People” and “Shiraz on the Shelf, a New Christmas Wine Tradition,” and can be found drinking in her living room on her weekly Facebook LIVE show, “Tipsy Tuesday.”  A LIVE with Kelly Top 5 Co-Host Winner, she has served as the official host of the Miss America Pageant Preliminaries for ten years, has co-hosted with Anderson Cooper, was a warm-up comic for four years, and had her own talk show on NJ 101.5 FM. She can be found on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram @OneFunnyMother and online at OneFunnyMother.com.

Before hitting the road for a national tour, One Funny Mother was named “Best One Woman Show” at the 2015 United Solo Festival in New York City.

One Funny Mother is a great “Girls Night Out” or date night for anyone that IS a mom, HAS a mom, or is MARRIED to a mom.

PRAISE FOR WARM 

WARM jettisons the cryptic mystery that marked Wilco’s best work and gets down to what matters in the most direct terms: family and creativity, life and death, sadness and hope, all rendered with weary empathy.”  — Wall Street Journal 

“A moral guidebook from a songwriter who sings with such compassion that even his simplest advice (‘Don’t forget to brush your teeth’) can make your eyes well up.” — Pitchfork 

“[WARM is] proof that Jeff Tweedy’s non-Wilco detours have become more than mere side projects to fill gaps between albums but rather, precious, intimate portraits of a songwriter who’s willing to openly display more of his scars than ever before.” — Rolling Stone

PRAISE FOR LET’S GO (SO WE CAN GET BACK)

Let’s Go is especially enlightening, a rock ‘n’ roll book that quietly dismantles what we expect from rock ‘n’ roll books.” — Pitchfork 

“One of the best and most revealing memoirs in years.” — The Ringer

Let’s Go shows how Tweedy’s prolific and musically varied career is the result of a restless creative streak that helped him find meaning and a place in the world.” — The Washington Post

CINCINNATI, OH – Jeff Tweedy has just announced additional US tour dates in support of his album, WARM, released this past November via dBpm Records. His WARM Tour plays the Cincinnati Music Hall Ballroom on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 7:30 PM. The show is part of Cincinnati Arts Association’s 2018-19 Presenting Season.

Tickets go on sale Friday, January 11 at 7:00 PM at www.CincinnatiArts.org, (513) 621-ARTS [2787], and the Aronoff Center and Music Hall Ticket Offices.

Additionally, Jeff Tweedy will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on January 9, performing songs off WARM.  Jeff’s last television appearance was on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, shortly before the release of his intimate and wryly honest memoir (and New York Times Bestseller) LET’S GO (SO WE CAN GET BACK).  Since then, he’s sold out an East Coast and Midwest book tour, played four consecutive sold-out shows at Largo, and has garnered astounding praise for WARM, receiving “Best New Music” by Pitchfork and being included on many year-end lists such as Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Wall Street Journal, and Aquarium Drunkard.
