March Performances

The Troubadours of Divine Bliss

Peppered with original and cover tunes and spiced with Cajun flavors from Kentucky to Louisiana, this soulful duo performs an eclectic blend of folk, jazz, blues, and zydeco. Their harmonies were described as "smooth as Kentucky Bourbon and soft as Spanish moss" by Carla Riggs of Media Max. The Troubadours, Renee Ananda and Aim Me Smiley, have seasoned their musical palette by traveling the expanse of America and Europe, playing guitar and accordion and singing their dreams.

Time for Three

A young, dynamic trio of classically trained string musicians, Time for Three is intent on exploring repertoire that stretches far beyond the limits of convention. The trio, composed of Zachary De Pue and Nick Kendall on violin and Ranaan Meyer on double bass, dazzles audiences with its eclectic mix of bluegrass, Hungarian gypsy, jazz, country-western fiddling, classical, and improvisatory music. Graduates of Philadelphia's venerable Curtis Institute of Music, Time for Three's members, though still in their late twenties, have performed with many of the world's preeminent conductors and orchestras, including the San Francisco Symphony and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

by Bradley Pickard, accompanist Darina Molkina

Bradley Pickard is a student of clarinet at the U-M School of Music, Theatre and Dance. Pickard's performance will include suites by Johann Sebastian Bach written for cello but transcribed for clarinet. These works were composed near the end of Bach's life and constitute some of the best compositions for solo instrumentation ever written, including the use of polyphony - many voices - despite the use of only one instrument. Pianist Darina Molkina will accompany Pickard on some of the pieces.

by Tiramisu

A newly formed trio as a subset of the popular Maggie's Standard Time Band, Tiramisu performs sophisticated versions of the most well-loved jazz standards of the day. Familiar tunes by Cole Porter, Harold Ireland, Gershwin, and Frank Sinatra are given new charm and style as led by Maggie Waltz on bass, David Perample on piano, and Kyle Newmeyer on vocals.
