Setting up for a performance at Piper's Opera House
Warming-up before the show
A Night in Vienna
The Waltz King, Johann Strauss is joined by Waldteufel, Albeniz, Schubert, Ivanovici and Tschaikowsky for a night of dance.
Before the Internet, before television, there was radio! And before radio was vaudeville. The small orchestras of radio shows and vaudeville stage had varied repertoire from short snappy commercials to full-length works by major classical composers. Portable Masterpieces bring this music, and more, to life. Light classical, ragtime, and contemporary repertoire!
Engaging and accessible newly commissioned music for theater orchestra by award winning composers.
Ragtime and plenty of melodrama from the composers and musicians who traveled the vaudeville circuit.
Standing room only at Thompson's Opera House.
The Gilded Age
Turn-of-the-century selections with crowd favorites: The Band Played On, The Mikado, and Blumenlied will evoke memories of The Gay Nineties.
