Val combines vocals and electric violin in a one-woman loop-driven pop symphony of song, created in real time onstage. Her powerful, entrancing voice and her eye-and-ear-catching six-string electric violin are augmented by the use of live-looping onstage to create something fresh and riveting. From innovative re-imaginings of cover tunes and mash-ups to multi-layered, soaring originals, audiences are left breathless by this technology-meets-art sensation of a show.

Brad Richter is among the most influential classical guitarists working today. His ability to defy the technical limits of his instrument has earned him comparisons to Franz Liszt and Nicolo Paganini. Equal parts performer, composer, and educator he has made nearly one-thousand concert appearances in North America and Europe – more than fiy of which were aired on NPR’s Performance Today. Brad’s compositions are performed the world over.
TSO Brass Quintet
March 9, 2018
TSO charms a wide variety of audiences with its versatile repertoire ranging from the Baroque to Broadway and Dixieland Jazz to traditional classics. A brass quintet is the most powerful of the chamber ensembles and can fill up a hall with its grand sound like an organ. In the hands of these superb musicians, it can also sing soft and sweet, bringing you to the edge of your seat, and get your toes tapping with jazzy tunes to boot.
Wildcat Jazz Band
March 23, 2018
With their unique blend of impeccable musicianship, traditional music, and slapstick humor, Wildcat Jazz has been planting smiles on faces since 2004. Founded by New Christy Minstrels veteran Rob Wright and his roster of world-class musicians, Wildcat Jazz has gained global recognition with their free-wheeling mix of well-known jazz favorites, tongue-in-cheek originals, and Dixieland staples.
A Tubac Civic Theatre Production
February 23 & 25, 2018
How would you feel about your best friend if he suddenly did something so colossally stupid, it made you doubt the very basis of the friendship? It happens in Yasmina Reza’s monster international hit, Art. Questions about the meaning of strange modern art and strange modern friendships–and how they’re sometimes not all that different–fly thick in the limelight. Three friends are forced to ask questions not only about the nature of art, but about the nature of friendship.
