BACH - A THREE PART INVENTION - SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26TH, 2014 AT 4PM
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT - Italian Pianist Stefano Greco performs the monumental Goldberg Variations of J.S. Bach.

Bourgeois, Director Emeritus, U.S. Marine Band. Mr. Stefano comes to us from the Keyboard Trust. This concert is in memoriam of Maestro Lorin Maazel, for whom Johann Sebastian Bach was a fundamental influence and inspiration. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT
La boîte à joujoux (“The Toy Box”) - SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH, 2014 AT 4PM
It's not every day that a virtuoso pianist chooses as his creative partner a marionette. Given the nature of pianist Orion Weiss's vivid imagination and collaborative instincts, the pairing makes perfect sense, artistically and historically. The Salzburg Marionettes - one of the world's oldest and most beloved marionette theaters, founded in 1913--is celebrated for its performances with live musical accompaniment. Coincidentally, the centerpiece of Orion's program, the piano score for Claude Debussy's La boîte à joujoux (The Toy Box) was penned the very same year. Weiss offers us the chance to experience classic works with a fresh lens, and in doing so, captures a treasured element of musical and theatrical history. A great performance for all ages.

THE LITTLE FLOWER - SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 16TH, 2014 AT 4PM
Tony Award Nominee and Obie winner Tony Lo Bianco presents a comedic, inspirational, and educational set in the 1945 City Hall office of Fiorello H. La Guardia, during his final day as three-term mayor of New York City.
The Little Flower presents a historic look into the life and career of Mayor LaGuardia - a courageous and flamboyant personality, who read comics to the children during a newspaper strike, fought against corruption and cleaned up city politics, setting a new standard for politicians in America.

HIDDEN MUSIC - THE MUSIC OF SHAHIN - SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6TH, 2014 AT 7PM
An evening with Persian-inspired music performed by Rappahannock-based composer and guitarist Shahin Shahida and his ensemble.
