An Intimate Evening with Larry Gatlin

Gatlin
There have been many great voices in country music and one golden one: Larry Gatlin. His bell-like tones and soul-stirring vibrato are works of art in themselves, quite apart from the lyrics they illuminate. Gatlin is equally distinguished as a songwriter. Of the 42 songs he charted between 1973 and 1990, including 17 Top 10s and the Grammy-winning “Broken Lady,” he single-handedly wrote every one, an achievement unmatched by any other artist in popular music. His smash “All The Gold In California” stands as a country crossover classic. Larry Gatlin was born in Seminole, TX. He and his brothers, Steve and Rudy, often sang together in church, as well as on local radio and television every once in a while. The brothers also recorded an album for the small gospel label Sword & Shield. After moving to Nashville, Larry Gatlin quickly found work as a backup singer for Kris Kristofferson, and not long after he landed a solo recording deal. Though he is best-known for his hits with the Gatlin Brothers, prior to forming and leading that family trio Larry Gatlin enjoyed a successful solo career with occasional support from his brothers, and now is bringing his intimate solo evening here to Stocker Arts Center.  http://gatlinbrothers.musiccitynetworks.com/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXtAN7rfF4Y&list=UUOfstmksBLUahScpUJiauaQ

"Seven Brides for Seven Brothers"

Set in Oregon in 1850, “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” tells the story of Millie, a young bride living in the Oregon wilderness. Her plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides. Bursting with the rambunctious energy of the original film, “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” is all boisterous fun and romance that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical. “Goin’ courting” has never been as much fun as in this rip-roaring stage version of the popular MGM movie.  http://awa-partners.com/shows/current/seven-brides/

Will & Anthony Nunziata: “Broadway, Our Way”

Recording artists, actors and concert performers Will & Anthony Nunziata have packed houses and won acclaim for their performances throughout the country and around the world. Will & Anthony are classically-trained tenors and have trained extensively in improvisational comedy with the famed Upright Citizen’s Brigade in New York City. They have appeared as guest artists with many orchestras including the Cleveland Pops Orchestra, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, and the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra. On television, they have been featured on "Good Morning America" and NBC’s Columbus Day Parade. Combining their magnificent tenor voices, brotherly banter and comedic flair, while offering fresh interpretations of timeless Broadway classics and American pop standards, they make “Broadway, Our Way” a memorable and emotional experience that leaves a lasting impression. The show will feature some of the greatest songs ever written for the stage including “Once in a Lifetime,” “Make Someone Happy,” “Being Alive,” “Somewhere,” “Lily’s Eyes,” and their signature mash-ups of songs including “Who Can I Turn To”/”What Kind of Fool Am I?” http://www.willandanthony.com/  Have a listen to their mash up of “Who Can I Turn To”/”What Kind of Fool Am I?” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYxug-TFDAs
