 AmiciMusic Presents 

Sat Aug 23rd  7:30pm
$15 in advance/ $20 at the door  

This fun semi-staged show brings together five of the best singers in the region to do scenes from several shows by Leonard Bernstein, Marc Blitzstein, and Jules Styne. Listen to toe-tapping music from "West Side Story," "Candide," "Regina," and "Gypsy." A true extravaganza of ensemble singing by the great "Stein" composers of the 20th century. All of the singers have performed for numerous organizations in the region, including the Asheville Lyric Opera, Modern American Music Project, and Opera Creations.

Director Pat Heuermann has directed for the ALO and is currently directing "Driving Miss Daisy" for the Asheville Community Theater.

AmiciMusic is a non-profit chamber music organization based in Asheville, NC and Baltimore, MD, founded by pianist and Artistic Director Daniel Weiser. It is dedicated to performing chamber music in intimate venues such as private homes and non-traditional spaces, including bars, libraries, Churches, retirement homes, and more.

AmiciMusic, meaning “music among friends,” seeks to break down barriers between performers and audience through brief discussions of each composer on their programs and by promoting a relaxed and informal atmosphere at concerts in order to encourage new concert-goers to enjoy the energy of the performances and the spirit of community and camaraderie.
