Shen Yun

For Chinese, the words evoke a sense of wonder, magic, and the divine. To audiences who have seen it, they recall the experience of a lifetime—a moment so powerfully beautiful it touches the soul.
 
Discover the glory of a fantastically rich culture, that of classical China, brought to life through brilliantly choreographed dance and mesmerizing, all-original orchestral compositions. Magnificently costumed dancers—the world's elite—move in poetic arrangements that evoke pastoral beauty, imperial drama, and the glory of an ancient civilization.

Martyn Joseph

Martyn Joseph’s ability to show us the ways a guitar can sound is testament to his talent and stage presence. In fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking that there’s more than one musician on stage. He continues to tour extensively on both sides of the Atlantic, building up a constantly expanding and enthusiastic fan base. The shows are intelligently constructed, Martyn presenting his audience with challenging narratives and with an intensity that hits with the power of a right hook. He tempers this with songs that comfort and speak to the soul.

The Grace Kelly Experiment

When it comes to jazz saxophonist/vocalist/composer/lyricist/arranger Grace Kelly, people seem to be divided into two groups: those who marvel at her proficiency, creativity, and ever-accelerating growth, and those who have yet to encounter this young wunderkind.

She has been featured on national television, and her incredible talent has been recognized by the likes of Wynton Marsalis and Harry Connick Jr. She attended Berklee College of Music to further develop her musical skills.

End Construction with Ellis Paul, Jim Infantino, Jon Svetkey and Brian Doser

In 1989, Ellis Paul, Jim Infantino (of Jim's Big Ego), Jon Svetkey of The Loomers, and Brian Doser formed a collective called "End Construction" and in 1990 released a compilation of songs titled "Resume Speed: New Artist Compilation." Each of the four songwriters performed four of his own original songs on the CD release.

They performed shows together and eventually collaborated on each other's material, but the project ended after only 3 years. Now, after 22+ years since the project started, the four songwriters reunite for two shows of "End Construction."
