a groundbreaking season Tri-C Presents kicks off the second half of our innovative 2010-11 season with international dance phenomenon Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, co-presented by DANCECleveland. Heralded violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain, or “DBR” as he’s known to his legion of fans, plays at Tri-C’s intimate new Blackbox Theatre and, just announced, 10-time Grammy winning a cappella group Take 6 performs at the Ohio Theatre as a prelude to the 32nd Annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland. The Tri-C Classical Piano Recital Series, hailed by the Plain Dealer as “the prime keyboard destination in Northeast Ohio,” features a tribute to composer Franz Liszt in collaboration with the CIM Orchestra, and the Song Is You series pays homage to Fred Astaire, Johnny Mercer and the making of My Fair Lady. We look forward to seeing you in the theater during this groundbreaking Tri-C Presents season.

Since their beginnings in the 1970s in late shows at off-Broadway lofts, the Trocks, as they are called by their legion of fans, have become an international dance phenomenon. This all-male company performs a full range of ballet and modern dance styles, delighting and amusing the most savvy, as well as novices, in the audience. The Trocks blend a loving knowledge of dance with a comic approach – not to mention the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces. 2 4

Known simply by his initials (DBR), Haitian-American Daniel Bernard Roumain is a classically trained composer, violinist and band-leader noted for blending funk, rock, hip-hop and classical music into energetic live performances. Backed by a DJ and his own specially made six string violin – which he describes as a “Frankenstein monster” – DBR performs music from his groundbreaking new work, “Woodbox Beats and Balladry,” which was hailed by JazzTimes as “stunning.” DBR’s killer resume includes work with composer Philip Glass, choreographer Bill T. Jones, jazz singer Cassandra Wilson, hip-hop artist DJ Spooky, and Lady Gaga. This presentation is supported by the Performing Arts Fund, a program of Arts Midwest funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Ohio Arts Council, General Mills Foundation, and Land O’Lakes Foundation.
