April Events

Friday, April 13 at 2:00pm - Opera Lecture:  Luisa Miller
presented by opera lecturer Helen Sagan
Helen Sagan has always been involved in music, ever since her music-loving parents took her to operas while she was growing up. Those experiences had a lasting impact on her, and now that she’s retired, the 73-year-old has found a second career as a speaker sharing what she truly loves — opera. Luisa Miller is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Salvadore Cammarano, based on the play Kabale und Liebe by the German dramatist Friedrich von Schiller.

Wednesday, April 18 at 7:30 pm - Riverboat Stompers
Enjoy "New Orleans" style jazz as well as swing-era tunes for dancin' and jivin' with this local band which began in 1990 when Joe Masters decided to pull together area musicians to play traditional jazz. Over the initial few years it more resembled a pick-up band as numerous musicians rotated from gig-to-gig through its ranks.  The mix usually added a second banjo and a vocalist.  In the early days they were known as The Classic Jazz Ensemble.  By 1995, however, a core group of players emerged - five of whom continue to the present day:  Larry (trumpet), Pierre (tuba), Phil (piano), Steve (clarinet), and Richard (drums).

Thursday, April 19 at 7:30pm - Musical by pianist Joy Cline Phinney with Astrid Schween, of the Julliard String Quartet.
