Eugene Ballet – Mowgli – October 2017
Founded in 1978 the Eugene Ballet Company has grown from a community-based dance group to become one the West’s busiest and most versatile professional dance companies. The company has performed in over 100 cities in 32 U.S. States and internationally to Canada, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Syria, Jordan, Tunisia and Taiwan. This year, they present Mowgli the fictional character and the protagonist of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book stories.
Tien Hsieh – Pianist – February 2018
As one reviewer from the San Francisco bay area recently quoted, “Serious, composed, tiny and full of music, Tien Hsieh lets her artistry on the piano express a warmth and freshness of ideas that surely none but a poet could explain.”
Chase Padgett – 6 Guitars – March 2018
Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he becomes 6 different guitar players each with their own distinct voice, views, and musical style (Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Folk, and Country). This performance is a pitch perfect blend of music, comedy, and characters.
Four Freshmen – Vocal Quartet – May 2018
Today’s quartet creates a sound that changes the way vocal jazz harmony is heard and performed. Pure energy and great songs from the past and present. They preserve the Freshmen sound while enhancing it with youth, vitality, and talent.
