Renowned, Israeli-born soloist Matt Haimovitz performs Bach’s moving and spiritual “Suites for Unaccompanied Cello” in a program offering a brilliant musical variation on the concept of “A Moveable Feast.” Haimovitz pairs each of Bach’s beloved works with newly commissioned suites by Philip Glass, Du Yun, Vijay Iyer and others. This concert will feature six suites and their accompanying partner works.

On Saturday, Oct. 14, be on the lookout for Matt offering tastes of the “Feast” at various locations around McLean!

For ages 5+. Keeping with the “Alden on the Move” theme, our first children’s performance this fall is reminiscent of a time when actors didn’t have theatres to perform in so they traveled from town to town with only what and whom could fit in their wagon. DuffleBag Theatre’s performance of “Peter Pan” will whisk you off to Neverland with only the set, props and costumes they brought in their trunk. If four actors aren’t enough to tell the story, some of McLean’s youngest residents might even get cast in the show!

Yeah, baby! This James Bond spoof was so popular that it spawned two sequels and a whole bag full of quotes. We know this sort of thing is your bag, baby. And, we’ll have contests for you to win ONE MILLION DOLLARS… or just a Capital Steps CD. Please, no hairless cats or ill?tempered sea bass… behave.
