Drummer Carl Palmer Music Hall November 20th 2014

CARL PALMER

at the Detroit Music Hall

Carl Palmer, among the most renowned drummers in rock history and a
founding member of both ELP and ASIA, is returning to the world stage for an
extensive solo tour that will celebrate the global release of his new DECADE
DVD (which chronicles the 2011 tour show) and his new RHYTHM OF LIGHT
collection of fine art, recently done in conjunction with Scene 4 Art Studios.

“America is the country that really propelled my career,” said Palmer from
his home in London. “I am always excited to be touring in the US. We have been
touring in Europe most of 2014, so to bring this new show to North America and
Canada as I did in July and will do again in November is very exciting.”
Entitled “Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy Rhythm Of Light 2014 Tour,” the
famed musician will present a show that includes bold, new arrangements of the
best-loved instrumental music of ELP, and other composers. A multi-media
experience combining music and video projection, the show promises to be
among the most musically compelling tours of the year. Carl Palmer Legacy is a
red-hot power trio that features Palmer on drums and percussion; guitarist Paul
Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick.

Trumpeter and Marion, Massachusetts native Aaron Janik has been
steeped in the discipline of music from the age of 10. His earliest
introduction to music was by way of revered New England trumpeter Jack
Martin.  Aaron also instructs on flugelhorn, trombone, tuba, and french horn.

 

Aaron furthered his studies at Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences as
well as the Conservatory of Music by way of the great Wendell Logan,
graduating in June 2013 with a Jazz Trumpet Performance Degree and a
Biology (Pre-Medical) Degree. From that time on, Aaron has performed
and studied with trumpet greats Marcus Belgrave and Sean Jones. He
has also been fortunate to study with Gary Bartz, Robin Eubanks and
Billy Hart to name a few.

 

Janik’s skills as a musician have afforded him opportunities to travel
to various places across the world, be part of a mid-west educational
tour with the “Knomadik Project” (as part of an Inner city music
Outreach program founded by De’Sean Jones), and even make a few TV
appearances on BET’s hit reality show “The Sheards” which airs its
second season in October of 2014.

 

Aaron now resides in Detroit, Michigan where he regularly performs and
records with artists across the country, from chart-topping artists
like Kierra Sheard or jazz legend Robin Eubanks to touring with the
likes of Motown Artist J. Drew Sheard and PJ Morton of Maroon 5. In
addition to these tremendous opportunities Aaron Janik continues to
hone his skills as an artist and arranger via Knomadik Horns (a
Detroit-based Horn Section) along with recording his original music as
a recording artist on the Knomadik Record Label. His debut release is
set for 2015.

The sequel to the international smash hit Annie, brings the world’s favorite orphan back to our stage! All the ingredients that made Annie so successful are here once again, with an old-fashioned romance thrown in for good measure. The curtain opens to Christmas morning, just as Annie is settling in with her new family. However, a knock at the door brings a child service worker who announces that Daddy Warbucks must find a wife and be married within 60 days or Annie will be returned to the orphanage! Much to the audience’s delight, a scramble ensues. With book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Martin Charnin, you once again meet all the little girls from the orphanage, Warbucks’ assistant, Grace, and, of course, FDR returns.

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)

What a Busy Summer!

Your Hummingbird Music Together teachers were busy birds this summer! We hosted three Sing and Sign events in Grosse Pointe jamming with amazing groups between 75 -100 people each month. We continued our amazing run of demos with the Canton Public Library and reached a new record with 138 people movin’ and groovin’ together all at once!

 

We also recruited a new teacher to join our team! A big welcome to Leah Fox, newly Registered Music Together Teacher to our teaching team! Here is more about Leah:

 

Leah has enjoyed music for her entire life, starting piano lessons when she was four and earning her B.A. in Music from Huntington College and her M.M. in Piano Performance from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Along the way, she has enjoyed singing in choirs, playing in bands, and performing in musicals. Music is such an important part of her life that when she had her son, Elias, in November 2012, she started looking for a music activity and found Music Together. Since they began classes, she loves how much music has become a part of their everyday routine. After attending the Music Together teacher training and seeing how carefully the music is chosen and the program is planned, she is even more excited to teach this fall!

With the addition of Miss Leah, we are now able to expand our Canton class schedule so check out the new class date and time options available starting this fall.

 

Fall is always a great time of the year to reset a schedule for learning and fun. We hope we will be seeing your families back in class and look forward to exploring new music together as your little ones continue to grow! Thanks you!
