Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
In this Tony-winning Best Play, Vanya and his sister Sonia tolerate the mediocrity of their middle-aged lives in Bucks County, PA, until their movie-star sister Masha returns for a visit that shakes things up. With her boy-toy Spike in tow, Masha incites a madcap family reunion complete with all the comic genius that only Christopher Durang (Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge) can deliver. Tracy Brigden directs.

Stile Antico - The Phoenix Rising
English Renaissance choral music owes its current popularity to the UK's Carnegie Trust, whose Tudor Church Music edition revived extraordinary music that had languished unperformed for centuries. Stile Antico celebrates the Carnegie Trust's centennial with a program entirely drawn from its publications, including masterpieces by Taverner, Tallis, Gibbons, White, and the exquisite five-part Mass by William Byrd.

Beethoven on the Bluff - Piano Trios II
The three Opus 1 piano trios were first performed in 1793, but Beethoven polished them for two more years before publication. He had written much music already, but he wanted to save this important designation for his best work up to that time. The three trios show a remarkable diversity and depth of emotion and many strokes of genius. The Duquesne Piano Trio will present them as a whole, as Beethoven intended.
