Spring Spectacular 2009

Screen Shot 2016-01-25 at 5.22.13 PMSpring Spectacular is our annual chance to let our hair down and have a little fun.  In 2009 we had the very good fortune to work with button accordion virtuoso Stas Venglevski on two pieces by William Susman.

We rounded out the program with a 5-octave marimba solo, a piece by John Elmquist of Hard Art Groop, a preview of our Rags Stomp and Stride concert and a “if jazz and prog rock had a baby” piece called Our Friend Adam by Ryan Brown.

All of this in the storied former speakeasy that is the Green Mill.
