Jonathan Kingham & Ryan Shea Smith
Tickets: $15 each for adults; $10 each for LCCC students with valid ID and children 18 and under
You may remember Jonathan and Ryan from last year or from our 2010-2011 season. On both visits they performed with the students who had written amazing new songs with them – we’re again bringing them back by popular demand to write more new songs with area students who will perform with them at this concert as well.
A Jonathan Kingham and Ryan Shea Smith concert is all about great songs! Jonathan wrote his first song in 1996 – “A Place Called Home.” Since then, he won 1st place in The Unisong International Song Contest, has twice placed in the top five of the John Lennon Song contest, won 1st Place in the USA Songwriting Competition in the Folk Category as well as the Overall Grand Prize out of 33,000 entries, and was awarded First Place in the Gospel category of the ISC songwriting contest. His singing has been featured in films, soap operas and on the hit show “Felicity.” Based out of Nashville he splits his time between touring the country and writing, recording and producing. He has toured with such diverse acts as Julio Iglesias Jr. and Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket. Jonathan currently plays keyboard and steel guitar for Toad the Wet Sprocket. http://www.jonathankingham.com/
Seattle native Ryan Shea Smith is also a veteran songwriter and recipient of multiple songwriting awards. His musical skill has been honed through jazz studies at the University of Washington and a steady touring schedule. He is known for his incomparable singing voice and has an impressive command of keyboard and guitar. Ryan’s sophomore release “Stay Awhile” is a John Lennon song contest winner. http://www.ryansheasmith.com/
With diverse musical styles ranging from jazz to R & B, this concert will be all about great songs!

Cleveland Shakespeare Festival
"The Life of Timon of Athens"
by William Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton
directed by David Hansen
Stocker Arts Center Amphitheatre - FREE!
(imclement weather site - Stocker Cinema Hall)
Timon was the most admired man on campus -- and generous to a fault. Betrayed by his friends, he abandons civilization and goes "back-to-the-land". As unrest grows in Athens, both sides appeal for his help. Set at a certain state university in 1970 against a backdrop of unpopular war and student unrest, "The Life of Timon of Athens" is a hilarious history of hip hypocrisy.
