  • - On Eva Schloss’ 15th birthday, her family was arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. She lived in the same apartment building as Anne Frank. Both families went into hiding the same day and both were betrayed. Yet Eva and her mother survived, and after the war her mother went on to marry Anne’s father Otto Frank. This unique multimedia theatrical experience combines videotaped interviews from Holocaust survivors with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. This oral history breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics world-wide. WARNING: Contains some graphic images and moments that would be disturbing for younger children.

    Performances at the Kentucky Center are Sunday, February 7 at 2pm and 7pm; Saturday, February 13 at 2pm and Saturday, February 20 at 7pm.

    - Synergy Trade Group: Property Solutions Louisville

    The ability of a group to outperform even its best individual member. That is the concept behind our SYNERGY trade groups; instead of networking for ourselves individually, the team networks on each of its member’s behalf. The purpose of SYNERGY is to build trusted, lasting business relationships, grow professionally, and establish a referral network.

    Groups meet; take time to let each member explain who they are, their business and the products their business offers. During meetings you get a chance to know each other much better and build permanent relationships with each other that will lead to strong referrals. The SMACC Synergy Trade Groups are up and running, these groups are full of Chamber members that are getting to know wall about one another and how they can refer business.

    Currently we have two active groups, but we encourage any member who is passionate about this program or programs like it to think of new groups and get involved today. Our groups right now are Real Estate and Senior Services.

    If you are not signed up for a group, or are interested in getting one started please call Glenn Knight with the Chamber at 502-899-2523 or email glennk@stmatthewschamber.com.

    - KRISTIN CHENOWETH JOINS THE LOUISVILLE ORCHESTRA FOR A VALENTINE’S WOW EVENT!
    Valentine’s Weekend Performance with the Louisville Orchestra Saturday, February 13
    The Louisville Orchestra is pleased to announce that Kristin Chenoweth, star of film, Broadway and television, will perform from her Coming Home tour, at the Kentucky Center on Saturday, February 13 at 8PM. which features hits from Wicked, Glee and a program of Broadway and Pop standards with the orchestra.
    Single tickets start at $35 and are now available by calling 502.584.7777 or by visiting LouisvilleOrchestra.org.
    Highlights of the Coming Home concert with the Louisville Orchestra include powerful new renditions of “Popular” and “For Good,” both of which Chenoweth introduced in her starring role in the Broadway smash Wicked. She also brings fresh energy and emotion to such venerable standards as Lerner and Loewe’s “I Could Have Danced All Night,” Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg’s “Over the Rainbow,” Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein’s “All the Things You Are,” and the more recent show tunes “Bring Him Home,” from Les Misérables; and “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again,” from Phantom of the Opera.

    “I can’t just sing a song for no reason, so I only choose songs that mean something to me,” Chenoweth states. “For example, I chose ‘My Coloring Book’ because when I was in college, my voice teacher didn’t think I understood the song, and told me to pull it out one day when I did. So I’m singing it all these years later, and she was there to witness it. I also like to reintroduce songs that people may not be familiar with, like Stephen Foster’s ‘Hard Times,’ which is from 1853 but sounds like it could have been written today. And I love to do songs that people wouldn’t expect from me, like ‘Enough Is Enough’.”
    The LO WOW! series is generously sponsored by Pharmarica. This Kristin Chenoweth, Coming Home concert has received additional support from Morgan Stanley.
