Enjoy Church and Monumental Events Presents: Colton Dixon
August 08, 2015 Reserved Seating: $20-$35
Door Open @ 6:00pm
Show @ 7:00pm

COLTON DIXON’s 2013 debut, A Messenger, set the record for biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act, becoming the No. 1 selling album of 2013 by a new Christian artist and the No. 9 best selling album of 2013 in the Christian genre overall. A Messenger also became the No. 22 best-selling album across all genres that same year, while Dixon was still reeling from his highly publicized seventh place finish on Season 11 of American Idol.
Awards and accolades followed. Colton received three Dove Award nominations, winning for Best Contemporary/Rock Album, and he was nominated for Male Artist of the Year at the 2014 KLOVE Fan Awards. Colton also racked up two No. 1 radio singles in 2013 and toured with Third Day, TobyMac and Josh Wilson. And he was recently named an Official Steinway Artist by the legendary piano maker.
It was a dream debut, but Idol fame can be fleeting without a strong foundation and a solid sense of who you are as an artist and a person. Fortunately, as Colton Dixon readies his sophomore project, Anchor (August 19, 19 Recordings/Capitol CMG), he’s as grounded as ever, with his feet planted firmly in faith and family and a clear idea of where he’s headed artistically.

Every Tuesday enjoy dinner at any Downtown Grand Junction Restaurant and bring your receipt to the Avalon for two (2) free admissions to the 7:30pm movie.

(1977)
Rating:PG (for some intense sci-fi action, mild language and thematic elements)
Genre: Action & Adventure, Mystery & Suspense, Science Fiction & Fantasy
Run Time: 2 hr. 17 mins.

Steven Spielberg followed Jaws (1975), his first major box-office success, with this epic science fiction adventure about a disparate group of people who attempt to contact alien intelligence. Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) is an electrical lineman who, while sent out on emergency repairs, witnesses an unidentified flying object, and even has a "sunburn" from its bright lights to prove it. Neary's wife and children are at first skeptical, then concerned, and eventually fearful, as Roy refuses to accept a "logical" explanation for what he saw and is prepared to give up his job, his home, and his family to pursue the "truth" about UFOs. Neary's obsession eventually puts him in contact with others who've had close encounters with alien spacecraft, including Jillian (Melinda Dillon), a single mother whose son disappeared during her UFO experience, and Claude Lacombe (celebrated French filmmaker François Truffaut), a French researcher who believes that we can use a musical language to communicate with alien visitors. Lacombe's theory is put to the test when a band of government researchers and underground UFO enthusiasts (including Neary) join for an exchange with alien visitors near Devil's Tower, Wyoming. In 1980, a "Special Edition" was released. While its primary selling point was the addition of scenes inside the alien spaceship, Spielberg claimed that he also cleaned up some choppy editing in the second act. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

September
Enjoy Church and Monumental Events Presents: Jon Foreman
September 28, 2015 Reserved Seating: $20-$35
Door Open @ 6:00pm
Show @ 7:00pm

Foreman is far more thoughtful and musically literate than you might imagine the bouncing figure behind the noise of Switchfoot to be. His current reading matter is Man’s Search for Meaning by the Austrian psychologist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl along with a book about dysfunctional relationships. He studied the Japanese kodo while at college and composed ‘In Love’ on its Chinese equivalent, the guzheng. Some people write songs to get famous or gain respect. Foreman writes songs to understand himself.
“I write questioning songs, he says. “I’m interested in reading philosophy and trying to figure things out. The melodies come to me quite easily so it’s the poets, philosophers and psalmists that help me pout the melodies where they belong. The songs assist me in the challenge of knowing who I am, so the shoulders of great writers are a good place to start.”
Foreman has allowed himself to become so available that his songs are now being covered before he’s even released them. Many of his impromptu concerts are already on YouTube. Not that he minds. “It makes it more of a communal event,” he argues. “I’m all about community. I love it when music becomes something bigger than one voice singing.”
He has no idea where the venture will end. He didn’t even plan for the tracks to be released. Part of his inspiration has come from hanging out with Nickel Creek and learning about roots music, part from listening to old favorites like James Taylor, Elliott Smith and Nick Drake. Another side venture is a record with Nickel Creek’s Sean Watkins, a duo currently cheekily known as The Real SeanJon.

October
Russian Grand Ballet Presents Swan Lake
October 01, 2015 Doors Open @ 6pm Show @ 7pm
$25.20 to $68.00
Tickets are available online at TicketsWest.com, by phone at 866-464-2626, or in person at the City Market stores.

The Russian Grand Ballet presents Swan Lake at the Avalon Theatre Thursday, October 1 at 7pm (doors at 6:00pm). This full-length classic production of the world’s most famous ballet, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, features Russia’s brightest ballet stars.

Swan Lake (from1895), together with The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, forms part of the big three of Russian nineteenth century ballets. Composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, together with choreographer Marius Petipa, raised both ballet music and dance as an art form to new heights with this piece.

There’s a good reason why Swan Lake is so often called the ‘ballet of all ballets’. The combination of pure romanticism, the story about love and deception and Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet music all continue to reach new generations of audiences.

Don McLean is one of America’s most enduring singer-songwriters and is forever associated with his classic hits “American Pie“,”Vincent (Starry Starry Night)”, “Castles in the Air”, “And I Love You So” and “Crying”.

His songs have been recorded by artists from every musical genre, most notably Madonna’s No. 1 recording of “American Pie” in 2000 and George Michael’s version of “The Grave” in 2003, sung in protest at the Iraq War. In 2007, Don McLean shared his life story in Alan Howard’s biography, The Don McLean Story: Killing Us Softly With His Songs. In June 2011 Don performed for an audience of 100,000 at the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts. Don is touring the UK and Ireland in May/June and his new album “Botanical Gardens” is set to be released, including the Youtube hit “Waving Man“.
