About this Performer
Virtuosos, stars, standouts: of course the members of this trio excel as performers. But the three longtime friends and collaborators are also compelling communicators and ambassadors who have variously defined what it means to be a 21st century classical musician. Their joint performance promises masters at the top of their crafts, offering brilliant interplay and “magical intimacy” (The Strad).
About this Performer
Storm Large is a musician, actor, playwright, and author, who is known by many as a member of the eclectic pop band Pink Martini. Part sultry cabaret singer, part punk goddess, Storm has sung in a remarkable number of settings, including with k.d. lang, pianist Kirill Gerstein, punk rocker John Doe, singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright, funkster George Clinton, and the BBC Symphony and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestras. Large makes wonderful records, but one must see and hear her in a live concert.
About this Performer
The infectious sense of joy and freedom of spirit that the Ailey company communicates with every electrifying work performed and every inspiring moment on stage by every brilliant dancer is a wonder. Don’t miss one of the most beloved dance companies in the world.
