Hair at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522

April 28-May 13
A product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, the rock musical Hair tells the story of the "tribe," a group of politically active, long- haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila, and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement as America searched for answers in a sea of purple haze. The American musical would never be the same.

Ragtime pianist Ethan Uslan

Trinity Lutheran Church | website | Lancaster, false 17602 event website

A native of New Jersey, ragtime pianist Ethan Uslan makes his home in Charlotte, NC. He is a three-time winner of the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest and has performed across the USA, Europe, and Cyberspace, where his jazzed-up rendition of Beethoven’s Fur Elise went viral with more than 1.6 million views: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCfGXwx1mJs
Aside from solo work, Ethan has appeared with symphony orchestras, jazz bands, improv comedy groups, and even a clown show. He began studying classical piano at the age of 9 in his hometown of South Orange, NJ. As a teenager, he took jazz piano lessons and in college (Indiana University) he studied classical piano and musicology. At some point in college, Ethan had a musical identity crisis. He still loved Bach and Beethoven, but he realized he didn’t want to devote his life to classical music. Something about ragtime and early jazz was luring him in.
