Musical | I Spy A Spy: A Timely Comedy Of Immigration, Espionage And More


I Spy A Spy is a timely musical comedy of immigration, espionage and the best chicken tikka pizza in Hell's Kitchen. It explores the undying magnetism of the American Dream, which continues to attract dreamers, big and small, from all across the world. José Rodriguez, a Mexican immigrant in New York City, has an American Dream - to become a someone. But as an undocumented delivery guy he feels practically invisible. Alina Orlova also has an American Dream - to undermine America. But as she's Russia's worst spy, she can't take a step outside without being noticed by everyone. When Jose and Alina meet, they realize they're yin to each other's yang and they hatch a scheme to crack the Mayor of New York's Annual Gala to fulfill their dreams. But when suddenly figures from their past crash the party, Jose and Alina are dragged onto a crazy roller coaster ride with the Mexican Mafia, the Russian Secret Service, a Pakistani pizza proprietor, a Korean deli owner and the Department of Homeland Security-- all before finding out who will be crowned International Spy of the Year. By Jamie Jackson and music & lyrics by SoHee Youn.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it."

Concert | Early Music Performed on Period Instruments


While The Queens Consort performs a wide variety of repertoire spanning many countries and time periods, they have a particular fondness for music of the Venetian baroque. Their instruments are: two baroque violins, baroque viola, harpsichord, baroque cello and two recordes. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers.

There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it.' The Venice Insider Recordings of one of The Queens Consort founding member, Violinist Claire Smith, include Shakira’s album, “She Wolf,” Ritchie Blackmore’s Night’s “Dancer and the Moon,” “Winter Carols,” “All Our Yesterdays,” and Candice Night’s “Starlight, Starbright.”

Performance | Invisible Apples: Magic as Performance Art


Magician and artist Jeanette Andrews invites guests to experience a night of magic that will upend all of their notions of what magic, at its most beautiful and confounding, can be. In her first public performance in New York City, Andrews will use an unlikely tool—scents from the natural world, such as apples and fresh soil—as catalysts to guide the audience through a series of interactive illusions. Along the way, her guests will create the impossible and seemingly predict the future. Andrews’ work uses scientific oddities and sensory anomalies to uncover a heightened world amid everyday life. “As an illusionist,” she says, “it is my job to create paradoxes and impossible visuals.” Jeanette Andrews specializes in creating performative, art-based interactive sensory magic, possessing a contemplative take on the art of the impossible, and is hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists in the world today. Performing her first magic show for her preschool class, and presenting her first paid show at age six, magic has been Andrews' sole vocation. With her studio based in Chicago, Andrews has staged hundreds of sold-out and standing-room-only performances at museums, theaters and universities across the United States.
