The Boise Cello Collective takes the stage at the Martin Hotel in Winnemucca on Saturday, January 3.

Winnemucca audiences enjoyed the works of one member recently when the Langroise Trio toured through Northern Nevada.  Sam Smith will be joined by Jake Saunders, Stephen Mathie and Shea Kole for this Boise Cello Collective trip through the high desert.

Boise Cello Collective has been performing for about three and a half years, playing nontraditional venues, on street corners, farmers markets, arts shows, street fairs, and anywhere they find they can bring music to the people.   The collective has appeared with as few as two and as many as 14 musicians.  While they started out focused on performing classic pop & rock tunes they soon added tunes from the Great American Songbook, arranged music from some of today’s more experimental and progressive rock groups, and have recently begun to include contemporary classical pieces in some of their performances.

Jake Saunders, apparently the driving force behind the Boise Cello Collective, contends that this musical experience is an evolutionary exploration of the unfolding musical conversation taking place among a large open group made up of Idaho’s preeminent cellists.  Jake says “We are mostly just having fun and enjoy playing for the people”. Since its inception, Boise Cello Collective has presented two world premieres, including a quintet for piano and cello quartet by Dave Earnest in January 2014 and “eMerging” by Evan Ware for cello octet in November 2014.”

Victoria Matlock

Broadway Returns to Winnemucca
7:30 PM, Friday, August 31, 2012

Victoria made it to town, and she’s staying with her dad, but she has come down with laryngitis, so the show tonight is CANCELLED.

Victoria deeply regrets that this has occurred, and offers her profound apology.

If you purchased a ticket to the show, just come down to the Martin between 6:00 PM and 7:30 PM tonight, and you will be provided with a full refund.

On August 31st Broadway musical theater actress Victoria Matlock returns to the Martin Hotel with another show, once again sponsored by jointly by Great Basin Arts and Entertainment and White Sage Theatre.

Almost exactly three years ago Miss Matlock presented an evening of Broadway songs to a sold out audience at the Martin Hotel.  Since that performance there have been numerous comments made about her performance, most of which can be summarized as, “When is she coming back.”

During the past three years Miss Matlock has been performing in the Broadway show “Million Dollar Quartet.”  She was in this new musical for 901 performances: 523 on Broadway and the remainder when the show moved off-Broadway.  She played the part of Dyanne, Elvis Presley’s girlfriend and the only female in the show.  The show’s heavy production schedule of eight shows a week has prevented her from returning to Winnemucca.

In the performance at the Martin Hotel she will be performing the songs she sang in the show as well as a medley of other songs.  In addition she will open the floor for questions, especially for questions from young people who may be thinking of an acting career.

Miss Matlock graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 1999 with a degree in musical theater and a minor in computer science.  The computer science education was to enable her to have an alternate career if the theater didn’t work out.  Since graduating she has been almost continuously working in the theater and has only used her computer background to prepare web sites for herself and a few friends.  Her web site is located at
