Marilyn Bergman. Dorothy Fields. Mary Rodgers. Jeanine Tesori. Betty Comden. Carolyn Leigh. Throughout theater history, there have been a few bold pioneers-in-heels who crashed the boys’ club, and wrote hit shows and songs like Once Upon a Mattress, Sweet Charity, On the Town, “Witchcraft,” “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” and so much more. Join us for an evening dedicated to the female pioneers of songwriting as we pay homage to them for opening the door (and curtain!) for future generations.

South Carolina natives Quentin Baxter, Kevin Hamilton, Charlton Singleton, and Clay Ross first came together in 1998 to form a seminal Charleston jazz quartet. Now, united by years apart and a deeper understanding of home, these accomplished artists have come together again, joined by one of the low-country’s most celebrated vocalists Quiana Parler, to revive a “Heartland of American Music” born in their own backyards.
Le chant des sirèns
Friday, March 22, 2019 | 7:30 p.m.
After a 15-year absence Sylvain Émard is now back onstage, rediscovering himself as a dancer changed by the passage of time as he ventures into a fascinating territory of experimentation. With Le chant des sirènes, he probes the states of being of a man who wants to believe that all is not lost. Holding high his hope like a subversive banner, he refuses to succumb to the glitter and sparkle of mirage. Against all odds he dances, a solitary maestro haunted by the sound and fury of the world he inhabits.

Russian comedian Yakov Smirnoff takes the Schimmel Center stage for an evening of laughter. You may remember Smirnoff from his many appearances on The Tonight Show and Night Court, movie roles alongside Robin Williams, Tom Hanks, Jack Nicholson, and Meryl Streep, and his hit Broadway show, As Long as We Both Shall Laugh. He has also appeared at The White House at the personal request of three American presidents.
We Banjo 3

Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, percussion and beautiful harmonies, this Galway and Nashville based quartet comprises two sets of brothers, Enda and Fergal Scahill and Martin and David Howley, who collectively hold over a dozen “All Ireland” titles and are among the most revered musicians in Ireland today.
