Much like the groups in the film Pitch Perfect, The Cherry Tones are a mixed voice acappella group that love the thrill of a performance with no safety net – no back up music, no additional instruments - just the organic play of strong voices filling the air. They perform a lively mix of jazz, pop and classic oldies that is sure to get you singing along.

Juliette Leon Bartsch, Donna Deininger, and Rhonda Wallen are VOXY – a trio of three fabulous women singers who love making music together. VOXY borrows music from a variety of genres – from folk, blues and traditional to global, modern and experimental – and interprets each piece with their unique mellifluous three-part harmony punctuated with dynamic body percussion. This uniquely talented and passionate group of women seeks to coax beauty and vibrant energy from every surface and space where they perform.

The ubiquitous music of Paris cafés was used to brilliant cinematic effect in the film Amelie. This trio of musicians recreates that wonderful feeling of café society with their concerts; Amelie Trio plays music ranging from Parisian standards and Edith Piaf ballads to gypsy swing and tango. The trio is comprised of Dave Willey (accordion), Maggie Sallee (violin), and Kevin Garry (guitar). This concert will feature chanteuse Britta Laree. Mark your calendars for this ‘don’t miss’ event.

Autumn Guitar with Michael DeLalla

It is fitting that Michael DeLalla will be playing us into the cooler months. His cool guitar concert kicked off our 2014 concert season; he is back for an encore performance of his solo guitar compositions and arrangements of traditional tunes gathered from his cultural explorations. Hailed as "one of the very best acoustic guitarists in the world" by All Music Guide, Michael DeLalla blends his jazz, Celtic and folk stylings in a memorable performance.
