Featuring six cellists, a vocalist, percussion and horn, this lively performance will be full of enthusiastic blends of music. No two shows are ever alike and the music created is not normally heard from the cello.

Friday, 7:30 p.m.

The Metales M5 theatrical show Vuelta de Fuego is a delightful blend of great music, outstanding musicianship, effortless virtuosity, humor, and a winning rapport with the audience. Whether playing Bach, Bernstein, Humperdinck or Piazzolla, this concert by Mexico’s foremost brass quintet is fun, surprising and unexpected! One reviewer stated that “M5 is the best thing to come out of Mexico since tequila!”

spring musical: The Light in the Piazza The Light in the Piazza

March 6, 7, 13, 14, 2015
Friday, Saturday, 7:30 p.m.

March 8 & 15, 2015
Sunday, 2:00 p.m.

“The Light in the Piazza,” is described by the NY Times as “the most intensely romantic score of any musical since “West Side Story.”

While sightseeing in Italy the summer of 1953, Clara, a beautiful young woman, loses her hat in a sudden gust. As if guided by an unseen hand, the hat lands at the feet of Fabrizio, (a handsome Florentine), who returns it to Clara. This brief episode, charged with coincidence and fate, sparks an immediate and intense romance.

Book by Craig Lucas Music & Lyrics by Adam Guettel

Lynn Trefzger


Lynn Trefzger

March 21, 2015
Saturday, 7:30 p.m.

Lynn Trefzger’s start as a ventriloquist/comedienne 30 years ago put to good use her childhood hobby. The audience will be treated to Lynn’s vocal illusion talents, and may meet a drunken and lovable camel, a grumpy old man, a feisty little girl, and maybe even some audience members who are brought up for the action! Her trunk full of comical characters makes ventriloquism fans out of the dubious. Lynn (and her many voices) has appeared on ABC, TNN, A&E, and Lifetime.
