Passionate educators and stunning musicians, Sixth
Floor Trio explores musical genres from across the country combining them
into an enlightening, melodious concert experience. Formed in 2008 by Teddy
Abrams, Harrison Hollingsworth and Johnny Teyssier, this chamber group
dedicates itself to the creation and performance of music that connects
different musical styles and communities. Each member is an accomplished
soloist and has received critical acclaim for their musical contributions.
The Trio’s genre bending style is as unique as their instrumentation,
collectively performing on piano, violin, clarinet and bassoon. Inspired by
a mission to bring music to the masses, they received a grant in 2011 from
the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to present “Random Acts of
Culture” across the United States. The Trio currently serves as Artistic
Directors of GardenMusic, the music festival of the renowned Fairchild
Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami.

Dubbed “Greek God of the Guitar,” Pavlo is a hot,
sizzling composer, guitarist and singer with a unique style and
Mediterranean flavor. Mixing the sounds of Greek bouzouki with flamenco and
Latin influences has proven a winning combination, which Pavlo says was the
“natural progression” of combining his training and passions for cultural
sounds. Six acclaimed albums and a Juno Award for 2004 World Artist of the
Year, Pavlo continues to grow in demand. He is blazing a quick path toward
international superstardom with television and film credits, commissioned
works and an invitation to perform for His Royal Highness Prince Charles.
Joined by a trio of musicians on Greek bouzouki, bass and percussion, Pavlo
will capture the audience with the sounds of the Chinese ehru, the
Portuguese guitarra, the Arabic flute, the Indian sitar and of course, the
Greek bouzouki. Truly a world artist, audiences everywhere will be on their
feet cheering for an encore.
to the Future
Thursday, February 27, 2014 - 7:00 P.M.
Bach to the Future is composed of chart-topping
pianist Michael Silverman, pioneer of cutting-edge electronic percussion Rob
Silverman, musical-arrangement connoisseur Matt Bollinger and electric
violinist Andrew Driscoll. Each musician is a renowned artist in his own
right. Michael is an Emmy Award winning composer who has written music for
hundreds of film and television productions on CNN, ABC, A&E. Rob is the
author of the best-selling “Drumset 101,” Andrew is a Berklee School of
Music graduate and has performed with Luciano Pavarotti, and the
Trans-Siberian Orchestra and it was Matt’s interest in arranging Bach’s
cello suites for six-string electric bass that was the creation for this
unique quartet. Bach to the Future uses unique instruments like the keytar,
zendrum and violectra to put a modern twist on the musical stylings of Bach
and Beethoven adding a little jazz here, African and Latin rhythms there and
whole lot of personal panache to every part of the show.

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.
