Exile
Thursday, April 24, 2014 - 7:00 P.M.

Classic rockers turned country rebels - Exile is reunited and stirring up some musically entertaining madness … just like they did 25 years ago. In 1978, Exile reached their pop peak with #1 single “Kiss You All Over,” but it was their shift to country music that brought the most success. With six Country Music Association nominations, it’s safe to say the shift was a success. The band topped the country charts with numerous #1 hits including "Woke Up in Love," "Give Me One More Chance," "Crazy For Your Love," "She's a Miracle," "Hang On to Your Heart," "I Could Get Used to You," "She's Too Good to Be True” and the list goes on. After more than two decades apart, J.P. Pennington (guitar), Steve Goetzman (percussion), Sonny Lemaire (guitar/vocals), Marlon Hargis (keyboards) and Les Taylor (guitar/vocals) are riding the country waves, infusing their pop and southern rock sounds into their newly recharged lyrics.

This concert is included with the 2013-2014 Series Membership.

Fernando Varela
Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 7:00 P.M.

Under the tutelage of master star-maker David Foster, Varela is on the fast track to the top. Easily striding Opera and Pop, he is the very picture of the “modern-day” tenor.  Imagine a three-year-old boy growing up in San Juan, Puerto Rico, imitating the musical acrobatics of the iconic Michael Jackson. Those melodious antics helped the young Fernando Varela develop a strong, tenor voice, paving the way for his discovery on YouTube by one of Jackson’s producers, hit-maker and 16-time Grammy Award winner David Foster. Ultimately, Fernando won Foster’s “Born to Sing” contest culminating in a guest appearance with David Foster and Friends at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. Fernando’s performance was reviewed as a show stopper and has been followed by numerous appearances with Foster, singing alongside an incredible list of super stars including Barbra Streisand, Lionel Richie, Neil Diamond, Peter Cetera, Babyface, Carole Bayer Sager, Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban, Seal, Chris Botti, Jewel, Chaka Kahn, Ruben Studdard, Jessica Sanchez, Robi Draco Rosa, Charice, Australia’s Delta Goodrem and British superstar Katherine Jenkins. His heart surrounds each song that he performs. His charisma warmly embraces his audiences. His music uplifts the soul - and an evening spent listening to him becomes a very memorable experience.

Umi Garrett
Tuesday, November 18, 2014 - 7:00 P.M.

Umi’s piano performances have thrilled audiences with brilliant playing and charm, earning her enthusiastic standing ovations and establishing Umi as a definitive rising star in classical music. Fluent in both Japanese and English, which she speaks without a hint of an accent, hers is an amazing story. For one thing, she does not come from a family of musicians. An only child, she and her family lived quietly in California, where her father helped with his family’s furniture store and developed a side business of growing coral for resale to pet stores. But there was a seismic shift in their lives when, at 4½, she begged her parents to let her study piano with her pre-school teacher, like her other little friends. By the age of 7, when most children are still searching for middle C on the piano, Umi was on her way to greatness. Now in her teens Umi performs worldwide.

Simply Sinatra featuring Steve Lippia and His Big Band

Steve Lippia’s “considerable vocal skills” (Wall Street Journal) have made Lippia one of the most prominent, in-demand vocalists in the country, establishing Lippia among the finest interpreters of “standards” and traditional pop music.
