TWO ON TAP

Saturday, January 20, 2018 - 7:30 PM

Two On Tap

TWO ON TAP marks the creative collaboration of celebrated musical theatre performers Melissa Giattino and Ron DeStefano. Since debuting in February 2010, TWO ON TAP has entertained tens of thousands at theatrical concerts across the USA, gala events, and headline performances onboard luxury cruise liners. 
Heralded by presenters and critics, TWO ON TAP aims to breathe new life into classic song-and-dance with clever arrangements, a meaningful connection to the audience, and exciting high-energy routines. Recent accomplishments include multiple appearances at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, headline spots on Queen Mary 2's historic transatlantic route, and multiple community concert tours including over 100 cities throughout the Midwestern and Mountain states.

Educational outreach and helping to create "tomorrow's audience" are an important part of TWO ON TAP's mission, and Ron and Melissa enjoy leading school and community programs in conjunction with their performances. Their innovative "Tea for Two Outreach," in which local dance students interact with the artists before a concert and join together onstage for a signature song-and-dance group number, has been praised by presenters as an exciting and wonderful way to connect with new audience members and increase ticket sales. Audition workshops for aspiring high-school theatre performers as well as mini-concerts for young people incorporating a structured curriculum on the history and evolution of tap dancing have sparked renewed interest in what some had considered a "lost" art form.

Firebird Balalaika Ensemble

Saturday, February 17, 2018 - 7:30 PM

Firebird Balalaika Ensemble

Founded in 1995, Firebird is building a reputation as a unique, dynamic, and accomplished group of musicians performing on Russian traditional instruments.  These include the domra, a string instrument with a thin, fretted neck and round body first appearing in written records at the end of the 15th century; the balalaika, a triangular-bodied Russian instrument well known to Western audiences from the film Doctor Zhivago; and the bayan, a member of the accordion family popular in Russia and Ukraine.  Firebird's repertoire ranges from traditional Russian and Eastern European songs to well-known classics and works of contemporary composers.

Touring extensively in the US and abroad, the ensemble also performs for TV, radio, and films.  Firebird has appeared with great success at the John Anson Ford Amphitheater in Los Angeles, Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco, Fechin Institute in Taos, NM, Hoover Auditorium in Lakeside, OH, Luther Burbank Center in Santa Rosa, Pasadena Civic Auditorium, Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts in Reno, Sound of LA concert series at the Getty Museum, the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, and the Russian International Festival in San Francisco.

CORNET CHOP SUEY Jazz Band

Monday, April 16, 2018 - 7:30 PM

Cornet Chop Suey

The Cornet Chop Suey Jazz Band has enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity since its arrival on the jazz scene in 2001. The band's unique front line with Brian Casserly on trumpet, Tom Tucker on cornet, Jerry Epperson on reeds and Brett Stamps on trombone is driven by a powerful rhythm section consisting of Paul Reid on piano, Jay Hungerford on bass and John Gillick on drums. Best known for a wide variety of styles, Cornet Chop Suey applies its own exciting style to traditional jazz, swing, blues and "big production" numbers. Every performance by Cornet Chop Suey is a high-energy presentation and is always a memorable experience for the audience.

Named after a somewhat obscure Louis Armstrong composition, Cornet Chop Suey now has nine CD's available. The "St. Louis Armstrong" CD includes many of the tunes performed in the special Louis Armstrong show. The band is in great demand at jazz festivals, jazz cruises, conventions and concerts around the country.
