Piano Heist

A Mishmash of Theatrical Wonder, Comedy, and Musical Madness

7:30 PM Wednesday
February 14, 2024

Lifelong friends, and colleagues, Nico Rhodes, Patrick Courtin, shocked and appalled by the realization that piano just isn’t cool anymore, set off on a divine quest to redeem the keyboard and reinstate its reputation as the greatest instrument of ALL TIME! Armed with the music of the greatest composers, songwriters, and performers of the past 400 years, and the technology of the 21st century – their virtual orchestra (Dougie), Nico and Patrick deliver everything from classical piano raptures to bombastic boogie woogie, from romantic piano ballads to 80’s keyboard synth battles in their show Piano Heist! What ensues is a mishmash of theatrical wonder, comedy, audience participation, heartfelt stories, a pinch of history, and a world of musical madness.

Huu Bac Quintet

East Meets West with Asian-Influenced Jazz

7:30 PM Friday
March 8, 2024

East meets West in an intriguing musical dialogue weaving contemporary jazz performance with the sounds and musical traditions of Peru, China, and Vietnam. Those in search of the unexpected need look no further than this Asian-influenced jazz ensemble featuring compositions inspired by leader Huu Bac Quach’s travels in Asia, Europe, and South America. The combination is a masterful and incandescent blend of cultures. This is jazz with an eclectic twist, as contrasting musical traditions intertwine in a seamless listening experience. Each instrument catches the inflections of the others, echoing them back in a punchy and frequently light-hearted interplay of sound. If only all cross-culture conversations were as smooth as this one!
