NOTHING LIKE A DAME: THE WOMEN OF RODGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN
TICKETS:
$15/$10 seniors and students

There’s nothing like a Rodgers and Hammerstein dame! These leading ladies have spunk, heart, and some of the most ravishing songs in the history of musical theatre.  Soprano chanteuse Amy Alvarez and musical director Jefferson Turner reinterpret nearly thirty of the best Rodgers and Hammerstein songs for women in this delightfully sophisticated evening.

Friday, June 24, 8 & 9:30 PM
ANNE METTE IVERSEN QUARTET: MILO SONGS
TICKETS: $15
John Ellis – saxophone; Danny Grissett – piano; Otis Brown III – drums; Anne Mette Iversen – bass and compositions

Anne Mette Iversen Quartet has gained a reputation for their consistently engaging live performances, and for being true to jazz music in spirit, feeling, and originality. They do not “play” the music; they speak through the music, they live the music.

The quartet’s new album Milo Songs is scheduled for release on Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records on May 17. The new release reflects on and pays tribute to the child’s worlds, through the exploration of a child’s experiences and his perspective on life. Inspired by a little melody Anne Mette’s son made up at age 2, which is found in all the tunes on this album.

TICKETS: $10/$5 students
A series of three monthly Thursday evening concerts. The others are scheduled for July 28 and August 18
Rhonda Robinson, vocals/flute; Charlie Sigler, guitar; plus a host of others

A regional favorite with a "beautiful" voice, Rhonda Robinson will sing and play songs that call to her heart, standards, Bossa Novas and originals, ideally suited for the intimate An die Musik listening room. They will also revisit a few of the great songs from the recent Billie Holiday tribute concert. Her approach to the music blends her backgrounds in acting, musical theatre, classical music and her love of the sounds of large ensemble/big band jazz.  She'll be joined, as always, by some of the best players in the area.
