October and November have a LOT going on, and some opportunities may have eluded your gaze; take note of some sweet last-chance ops.

Blink and they’re gone: from the Cornish student-curated show Trick or Treat to alumna Emily Chisholm in Sugar Daddies to Kora Band. With so much to see and do in October and November, you really have to be on your toes or miss out on some really good stuff. How about a site-specific dance spectacular Your Eyes Have Facets?  Or improvisation from Jovino Santos Neto, Denny Goodhew and the Spontaneous Composition Ensemble? Or senior recitals in the music department? There’s a veritable cornucopia of fall events that, just like that jack-o-lantern on your front porch, will be gone very soon. Cancel your other stuff and start making reservations.

Closing November 3: Emily Chisholm (TH ‘04) starring in Sugar Daddies as Sasha, an older man’s object of desire (that’s Emily on the poster). A very big deal, Sir Alan Ayckbourn directs the American premiere of his “comedy of dark intentions.”  Chisholm joins a crack cast featuring Anne Allgood as Charmaine, Seán G. Griffin as Val, Elinor Gunn as Chloe and John Patrick Lowrie as Ashley. Hurry on this one. Really.

Closes October 8: this year, Cornish students are stepping up to take charge of a gallery and get some serious experience as curators. (See photos in slide show, above.) The first exhibition in the new |_ Space Gallery is Trick or Treat: A Student Curated Group Show. The |_ Space is in Cornish’s Centennial Labs, just up the street from the Main Campus Center, 2000 Virginia Street. The gallery is curated by Makena Gadient (AR ‘16) and Diego Suarez (AR ‘16), with coordination from alumna Sam Whalen (AR ‘13).

One day only, November 3: Kora Band (see photo) in the Cornish Music Series. “Drawing well-deserved attention far from its Portland/Seattle roots, Kora Band – Andrew Oliver (piano), Kane Mathis (kora/guitar), Chad McCullough (trumpet), Brady Millard-Kish (bass), and Mark DiFlorio (drums) – combines elements of jazz and West African music.”

November 4 only: Improvisation (Jovino Santos Neto) / Spontaneous Composition Ensemble (Denny Goodhew).  At Kerry Hall, PONCHO Concert Hall.

Finally,  four total performances, November 3 and 9: Cornish Dance Theater presents Your Eyes Have Facets. Exciting, site-specific dance piece choreographed by Salt Horse at Seattle Center. Free. Can’t beat that.
