CULTURAL CENTER CELEBRATES SPRING RENEWAL
WITH SIRI VIK AND ‘LA VIE EN ROUGE’
LINCOLN CITY – On Saturday, April 2, the Cultural Center will reverberate with the sultry, charismatic sound of Siri Vik and her popular tribute to Edith Piaf, “La Vie en Rouge.” Vik will be bringing her full band and her visceral understanding of Piaf and the French chanson tradition, for the Cultural Center’s Spring Renewal Concert. Showtime is 7 pm.
“La Vie en Rouge” will be the finale of the nonprofit’s annual Membership Drive. The goal is to log 100 renewals and new members, supporters of the center and its programs. All donors who have given in the last five months – our “spring renewals” – will receive a $10 discount on tickets to “La Vie En Rouge” and a $2 discount on all LCCC concert tickets throughout the year.
Who is an LCCC “member”? It’s anyone who donates $35 or more, within a calendar year.
“Big donations are always welcome, but during Membership Month we concentrate on increasing the number of donors in our supporter base,” said Niki Price, executive director. “The more members we have, the greater our community-wide support. We use these unrestricted monies to pay our everyday expenses, like copier paper and vacuum cleaner bags. And we strong membership numbers as proof of our local support, when we write larger grants or request bigger gifts. It all starts with membership, and I encourage all those who love the Center to consider giving this month – and to join us for ‘La Vie en Rouge.’”
This Spring Renewal presentation of “La Vie en Rouge” is made possible through a generous lodging donation by Seahorse Oceanfront Lodging, and by the members of the LCCC. March Membership Month is also sponsored by Pacific Grind, which is donating complimentary coffee drinks for all those who donate during this membership drive.
Tickets for “La Vie en Rouge” are $30, on sale at the LCCC box office, 541-994-9994 or lincolncity-culturalcenter.org. The box office accepts VISA, Mastercard and American Express, as well as checks and cash. All renewing members will receive their coupon codes in the mail, or they can purchase in person, by phone or by mail.
“We are extending Membership Month to April 2, so even if you renew your membership right before the show, you’ll still get your discount,” Price said. “Mon dieu! What a deal!”
Doors will open at 6:30 pm. A selection of Northwest beers and wines, My Petite Sweet cookies and bars, and Mountain Man savory snacks will be sold before the show, and during intermission. For details and tickets, call 541-994-9994.
