October Performances
 

CLASSICAL & RAGTIME PIANO MUSIC
by Paul Fine and Korin Hancherlian-Amos

Pianist and Associate Professor of Internal Medicine at U-M, Paul Fine plays and composes music by ear. He took lessons as a child, but he never mastered reading or writing music.  In the last 7 years, while helping his own children with their piano lessons, Fine has "relearned" how to read and write music, and now he has put down on paper the compositions that he previously had floating around in his head.  Korin Hancherlian-Amos, who also will be performing Fine’s compositions, is a piano teacher who studied piano performance at Eastern Michigan University. Both Fine and Hancherlian-Amos can be heard on Fine’s CD, Fine Tuning.

70'S LITE ROCK
by Secret Promises

Experience an alluring mix of Barbara Streisand, the Stylistics, the Carpenters and the Bee Gees with Secret Promises’ adult contemporary rock. With a background in sacred, secular, vocal jazz, Broadway and high Renaissance music, vocalist René Van Houtte has come into her own with Secret Promises. Keyboardist and vocalist Leander Terry was born into a Detroit family of two reverends, and he discovered his artistic talents at an early age while singing in his mother’s church. This gospel music influence can be heard in his pop compositions on his CD, The Hour of Love. Terry has performed in the mid-Michigan area, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Arizona and Oregon, and his music is on the airways in England, Australia and Africa.

RAGTIME
by John Remmers

John Remmers plays ragtime piano music of the kind that was popular a century ago and revolutionized American popular music, paving the way for jazz, blues, and other popular musical genres. Today, although some of Scott Joplin's works, such as The Maple Leaf Rag, are still well-known, much of this upbeat and engaging musical style has disappeared from view. At this performance, you can expect to hear rarely performed pieces by Joplin, Joseph Lamb and other composers of that era. Remmers performs regularly in such venues as the Scott Joplin Festival in Sedalia, Missouri and the Sutter Creek Ragtime Festival in Sutter Creek, California.
