2010 Season

 

 

 
Buffalo Rome
Thursday, Jan 14, 2010
"These guys are putting the west back in country western"
-- Larry Holden, County Weekly

Michael Visconti, Kevin Douglas and Billy McCorvey are no strangers to the music business – Michael, a producer and jingle writer; Kevin, a featured performer on the Grand Ole Opry and CMT; and Bill, the writer of Montgomery Gentry’s hit, “Lonely and Gone.” As Buffalo Rome, their individual styles meld with surprising natural ease, forming a mature, fresh sound that’s as comfy as a pair of vintage Levi’s.

Seamlessly blending the sounds of 1970’s West Coast country-roots rock and today’s country, Buffalo Rome brings a cozy vinyl vibe to the digital age, making new fans everywhere declare the band’s motto: “Wherever
you go, Buffalo Rome!”  

Intersection
Monday, Feb 08, 2010
“Superb.”
-- The Seattle Times

The violin, cello and piano trio, Intersection has forged a powerful connection with audiences worldwide. As the group’s numerous recordings top classical and crossover charts in Asia, their fan base continues to rapidly grow throughout Europe and the US.

Their program is anything but typical -- a Hungarian thread in Brahms may spin into Gypsy tunes, Dvorak into Slavic dance forms, Ravel into ethereal French renderings. And…they present American repertoire spanning avant garde and popular genres. Drawing inspiration from
their home base in New York, Intersection is an exciting musical embodiment of vitality, verve and diversity. 

Daniel Rodriguez
Friday, March 12, 2010
“… the second coming of Andrea Bocelli…”
-- The Trades Online

Former New York City police officer, Daniel Rodriguez has experienced a meteoric rise to fame. He was one of his department’s designated anthem singers on September 11, 2001, when fate intervened -- he rendered acapella performances of “God Bless America” and the National
Anthem that proved far greater than a patriotic gesture. Ringing, heartfelt and beautiful, his performance stirred the hearts of the entire nation.

Since then, he has performed at venues ranging from 2002 Winter Olympics, to Disneyland, to The White House. A pillar of courage and faith, Daniel Rodriguez is truly an inspiration, who freely shares his deep appreciation for life, God and country.  

Quattrocelli
Thursday, March 25, 2010
 
“… mellifluous – multiplied times four”
-The Iowa Source

Audiences love the unorthodox style and panache of quattrocelli. This ensemble of four impeccable cellists continues to blaze its own virtuoso path away from the musical mainstream. Trained in Germany under Hans-
Christian Schwieker, these crowd-pleasing consummate musicians astonish listeners by using their cellos as drums, guitars, and much more.

This season, they perform “Cinemacelli,” a radiant program featuring original arrangements of the most heart-warming, heart-breaking, and emotionally sweeping music of the film world. From early beginnings at Rheingau Music Festival, through several U.S. tours, and recently to China, quattrocelli always delivers a captivating performance full of passion, imagination and magnificent surprises!
