The Night with the Ukulele All-Stars concert in September embodies the LCCC mission. Internationally known instructors attending a three-day retreat at nearby Camp Westwind perform a benefit concert at the LCCC. Concert proceeds go to the Westwind Stewardship Group, which preserves and protects the 529-acre Westwind camp and farm within the surrounding land in the Cascade Head Scenic Research Area. Outdoor education, conservation, and ukuleles—the nexus of culture that LCCC makes possible.
This year, Executive Director Niki Price is especially excited for the fourth presentation of Sound of Nature, Sound
of Art. Led by Jonathan Dubay of the Three Centuries Ensemble, the Center merges chamber music compositions inspired by nature with visual artists who respond to the music in real time during the performance. They also offer “audience art” projects, which allow listeners the distinctive experience of hearing music and translating it into art simultaneously.
