Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 4.16.09





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

Clap if you believe in fairies! And then be ready to clap some more for the Eugene Ballet Company’s performance of Peter Pan on Saturday and Sunday. Fly away to Neverland with Peter, Wendy, Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys to tangle with pirates and pirate-eating crocodiles at the Hult Center.



For a century, Edward Elgar’s Variations on an Original Theme for orchestra has intrigued sleuths determined to figure out just what the original theme, which Elgar transforms in fourteen variations inspired by his friends but never actually states, is. Guesses include everything from “God Save the Queen” to “Auld Lang Syne” to “Rule Brittania” to a musical expression of the value of pi. The Eugene Symphony with guest conductor Alexander Mickelthwate will explore music’s most famous Enigma, plus one of J.S. Bach’s grand orchestral suites and Jean Sibelius’ Symphony #7 on Thursday, April 23.


Kids grab your bikes, helmets and your ice cream money! You’ve seen Critical Mass; you’ve seen the World Naked Bike ride (or maybe you hid your delicate eyes from that one) but have you seen Kidical Mass? This month marks the one-year anniversary of Eugene’s biggest contribution to encouraging kids and families to use bikes. On the third Friday of each month kids and their parents in Eugene and a half-dozen cities in the US and Canada hop on their bikes and take to the streets in a safe, family-friendly way. Join in the bike-riding kidical fun on Friday.
