December Preview of Events
It’s a tradition in our house to watch the movie Elf every Holiday Season. The musical based on the comedic movie, tells the story of Buddy who was raised by Santa after he slipped into Santa’s bag one Christmas Eve. Buddy towers over Santa’s elves and does not have the knack for building toys but Buddy is full of Christmas spirit. He ventures to NYC in search of his real dad, finds love and spreads his infectious cheer through the city.
In this play, Hershey Felder takes on the part of American composer, Irving Berlin, telling his story and playing his songs. Berlin has a long list of legendary compositions with a resume of 18 Broadway shows, 16 featured films, 232 top 10 hits and 10 number one hits. This should be a night to meet the man behind the music.
Join me on December 19-30, 2018 for a night of iconic music and a little singing along, as we get a glimpse into the life of this composer. For tickets go to ppt.org.

Everyone knows the Charles Dickens story “A Christmas Carol”. It is a traditional Christmas tale of hope and second chances. This production adds the musical sounds of the Pittsburgh CLO to this beloved story with characters Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim.
A Magical Cirque Christmas is a show of illusions, speed juggling, shoulder ballet, trapeze and more. This show also features the trapeze of Duo Transcend a finalist on the television show “America’s Got Talent”. This should be a night to kindle that spirit of Christmas with a sprinkle of amazement as they preform to favorite holiday music.
Join me for this Pittsburgh premier show, Magical Cirque Christmas, on December 13, 2018 at the Benedum Center. For tickets go to Trustarts.org.

I recently experienced the smooth sounds of trumpeter Sean Jones as he mastered the instrument during a night of jazz with the Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra (Day 308- Liberations). Jones is back to perform a show inspired by the images of freedom and hope in Peju Alatise’s sculpture Flying Girls, which is on exhibit at the Wilson Center. This should be an interesting collaboration of two art forms-music and physical art.
