With The Copper Bottom Band Presented by Singletary Center for the Arts August 24, 2012 7:30pm The differences between HUGH LAURIE and Dr. Gregory House, the emotionally tortured protagonist he plays in the smash Fox TV series House, couldn’t be more apparent. But there is one striking similarity between the two: both are known for their propensity for strumming the guitar and tinkling the ivories. And the Hugh Laurie in the recording studio inhabits a real-life character that requires no sense memory preparation or Method: Hugh Laurie, musician. “Let Them Talk” is the first album to be recorded by Hugh Laurie. Produced by Joe Henry and recorded in Los Angeles and New Orleans, the album is a celebration of New Orleans blues, a genre that drives Hugh’s musical raison d’être. Spiritually inspired by similar genre albums like Ry Cooder’s ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ and T-Bone Burnett’s ‘O’ Brother Where Art Thou’ soundtrack, Hugh’s ‘Let Them Talk’ recordings bring together an extraordinary selection of heritage tracks, renowned musicians and vocal legends to champion this much neglected body of work.

“Hugh Laurie isn’t just the star of one of television’s most popular shows - he’s also a lifelong blues fanatic and musician who burns up the frets on his rootsy major-label debut.” - Guitar Aficianado “It’s a head-first plunge into the depths of New Orleans music, from Jelly Roll Morton to Dr John.” - The Observer “Let Them Talk pays proper respect to the music inside the framework of a well-deserved love letter.” - NY Daily News

TICKETS: $45 / $35 / $25 For fans of blues and gospel music, Irma Thomas, Dr. John, Louis Armstrong, New Orleans Piano and Robert Johnson. www.hughlaurieblues.com

Featuring The Birdland Big Band directed by Tommy Igoe Presented by Singletary Center for the Arts October 20, 2012 7:30pm Named after famed alto saxophone player Charlie Parker, nicknamed “Bird,” BIRDLAND was founded in NYC in 1949. The list of performers who were regulars at this iconic jazz club reads like a who’s who of Jazz: Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Stan Getz are just a few who made Birdland their NY home. LIVE AT BIRDLAND, directed by Tommy Igoe, recreates the ambience and experience of a night at Birdland. This dynamic new ensemble, straight from the jazz mecca of NYC, provides an unforgettable musical event that goes beyond the traditional and sets the standard for the 21st century jazz orchestra. The night will feature fresh treatments of iconic Charlie Parker compositions as well as innovative arrangements from composers such a Chick Corea, Arturo Sandoval, Sting, Herbie Hancock, Lennon/McCartney and Leonard Bernstein.

“A completely unique NYC experience. There isn’t another band like this anywhere...A music experience you must simply witness.” - Time Out New York “Totally blown away!” - Jazz Improv Magazine “Tommy Igoe’s drumming defies the laws of physics and his band sets the new standard for what a big band can be in the 21st-century.” - The International Jazz Herald

Featuring the UK School of Music Symphony Orchestra John Nardolillo, Conductor Presented by Singletary Center for the Arts February 15, 2013 7:30pm When, in 2007, BBC Music Magazine asked 20 critics to name the top 10 sopranos of the recorded era, Brewer not only made the list; she was one of the four alive and one of only three Americans on the list. Brewer combines her vibrant personality with an emotional honesty that distinguishes her performances in opera and concert. Brewer’s range, tone, power and vocal control have made her a favorite of the stage as well as the recording studio. CHRISTINE BREWER will join the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra in celebration of the 200th birthday of Richard Wagner. The program will feature some of the greatest and most celebrated music of Wagner’s career.

“Brewer’s voice - big, but pure, golden of tone, flawlessly produced and capable of great subtleties as well as great volume - puts her in the top tier of today’s artists.” - Musical America “Hats off, gentlemen. A diva. The real, rare, wondrous thing.” - Opera “Brewer is the ideal modern Wagnerian soprano. She can unleash thrilling high notes powerful enough to penetrate clichés.” - Los Angeles Times

PRICES For fans of Renee Fleming, Maria Callas, Joan Sutherland, Leontyne Price, Emma Kirkby and Martserrat Caballé.
