Multi-Media Performance Slated By Artist In Sonora
Scott Kirby

On Saturday, May 21 the Sonora Chamber of Commerce will present pianist, composer and visual artist Scott Kirby in a new multi-media show, Main Street Souvenirs, A Journey Through The American Heartland at the Sonora Opera Hall, 250 S. Washington St., in historic downtown Sonora. One show will be presented in an evening performance at 7:30 p.m. Doors open one hour before showtime and the box office will open at the Opera Hall at 4:30 p.m.

This is a multi-media stage performance featuring live piano music, a spoken narrative, and a video presentation. This visual “projected” dimension of the program will accompany both the Main Street Souvenirs Video Thumbnail narrative and the music throughout, and will consist of Kirby’s original artwork, his video footage, his photography, and archival photos.

The narrative, also written by Kirby, reflects a thematic progression, weaving different concepts about small town American life together with musical, visual and literary examples which illustrate these themes. The music in the first half will span 150 years of Americana, including Scott Joplin, Stephen Foster and John Philip Sousa, and continuing up to the present. The second half will feature Kirby’s original compositions, paintings, photography, literary excerpts and a narrative all exploring historical and visionary dimensions of the American Great Plains and Prairies.

Tickets are available at or by calling 1-800-838-3006. A limited number of Sponsored Community Tickets (complimentary) are available through the Sonora Chamber of Commerce to local public service agencies.
