     Amber Brown Is Not A Crayon
Saturday April 16, 2016    3:00 p.m.
Tickets:  $13.00  
         

Amber Brown is having what may be the worst year of her life. She and Justin Daniels were the perfect team: they laughed at each other’s jokes, sat next to each other in class, and stayed best friends when Justin’s dad had to move away. But now things are different. Now, Justin’s house has been sold and he is going to Alabama; that’s too far from New Jersey to think about.

ArtsPower’s uniquely funny and forthright musical portrays a feisty young girl who refuses to let her problems get the better of her. You’ll laugh and cry with Amber as she learns some valuable lessons about the virtues of patience and the meaning of friendship. Family-friendly musical play.

His parallel careers–as a musician, an author, a music teacher and a film, television and Broadway actor—mark Guy Davis as a Renaissance man, yet the blues remain his first and greatest love.

Tickets:  $30.00  
         
James is an accomplished rhythm and blues singer and songwriter who has earned an international following with a career built on solid, soulful live and studio performances.  In today’s R&B world, littered with retro-soul cronies, ear-twisting melisma and hollow affectations, James has a voice that stands out not only for its natural beauty and grit, but for its honesty.  His songwriting shares the masterful architecture and the inspired creativity of Smokey Robinson, each rhyme and rhythm crafted meticulously, somehow twisting familiar themes into unfamiliar new shapes. And though his voice is unmistakably his own, he delivers his songs with the kind of soulful abandon that often evokes Ray Charles and Otis Redding.

The critical acclaim that composer Jimmy Webb has received during his more than forty years of success, is as remarkable as the accomplishments they honor. Webb is the only artist to ever receive Grammy awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration, he is a member of the National Academy of Popular Music Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and, according to BMI, his "By The Time I Get To Phoenix," has been the third most performed song in the last fifty years, with "Up, Up and Away" on the same list in the top thirty. 

Whether playing music that embraces the transition from Summer to Autumn, familiar songs for the holidays, or celebrating the glory days of Summer and romance, Robin Spielberg’s concerts always intertwine musical performance with stories that inspire, enlighten and make us laugh.  Named to the prestigious Steinway Artist Roster, Robin has sold one million CDs making her one of America’s most popular contemporary female pianists/composers.
