Chart-Topping Pianist Michael Silverman Takes Classical Music Into the Modern Age with BACH TO THE FUTURE!

Imagine the classics - Bach, Beethoven, Mozart - performed in exciting new ways... modern jazz, African, and Latin rhythms. Bach to the Future brings an exciting, whimsical approach to the most beloved music of all time, and some of the most interesting cutting-edge instruments you'll ever see. How about a Drum-itar? An 6 string electric violin that sounds like Jimi Hendrix?

    All four players are world renowned performers, best-selling authors, and highly acclaimed composers. This is a show you won't want to miss! Bach to the Future - The Bach that Rocks!

A Fool’s Errand

Thursday, January 21, 2022 - 7 pm  

This Event Features a Student Outreach Performance

World-renowned clown, juggler, and comic acrobat, Jamie Adkins, stumbles onstage, desperately trying to become the man he imagines himself to be. In his new show A Fool’s Errand, Adkins uses his unique blend of circus arts, acrobatic skill and unguarded physical comedy to explore the what-ifs along the path of life, accompanied by a charismatic tuba player. With deftly awkward juggling performances or falsely flimsy balancing acts on a slack wire, Jamie Adkins skillfully masters the art of tricks and comedy, and strikes the heart of young and old alike.

Max Hatt / Edda Glass

Friday, March 25, 2022 - 7:30 pm 

Max Hatt / Edda Glass has “an incomparable spook” and a “unique sound” (Nashville Scene and NPR’s Larry Groce). Their award-winning original music and mesmerizing reinventions of the Great American Songbook create a swoon-inducing soundscape of voice and guitar that is both epic and intimate, making one feel “both lost and found, all at once” (New York Theater Guide). If we live in uneasy times, this music is both a reflection and antidote, an escape that is really a healing-in-place. As heard on NPR, PBS, NYC’s Lincoln Center, DC’s Kennedy Center, and the Sundance Film Festival.
