Horses…. This stirring, Allan Merovitz _07_17educational, oft fiery and heartfelt show is made up of heartwarming original poems, songs, and music, mingled with some classic and easily recognizable melodies and mixed with a few surprisingly true stories. The storytelling, songs, and poems take you through Allan’s life spent with these majestic creatures.
“It all started in Montreal when I was 4 years old with Beau the milk horse, then riding on my Zayda’s (grandfather’s) farm outside Smith’s Falls, and memories of riding with my Dad on Mount Royal in Montreal at the stables near Lac aux Castors ( Beaver Lake). The story and songs include a tour with the Caravan Stage Company through our four seasons on the road from British Columbia to Alberta.”

Alyssa Giammaria: Farewell Concert: Sunday, July 23. Doors 6:30; Show 7:00pm. $20 / $15 students. Alyssa Giammaria will be moving to New York City for school in the fall, and is putting on one last show for her AlyssaGiammaria_07_17friends and family as a chance to gather with everyone before leaving her hometown. She will be joined by Adrean Farrugia (piano), Pat Collins (Bass), Adam Inrig (Drums), as well as Aoife-Louise Doyle and Leah Korkowski on back up vocals.
The above is Alyssa’s plain (and true) statement about her concert. One of her Mohawk music teacher, Sophia Perlman (jazz-singer, songwriter, etc) flipped at the humility of the above, polled Alyssa’s fellow student’s for comments, and added her own. Most have to be under “Read More” but check this out: “Alyssa Giammaria (‘the humble prodigy’) is a beautiful soul with outstanding talent.”  “I can’t wait to see what New York does for her, and what she does for New York.”  “a willingness to not only foster her already impressive understanding of her craft but to also continually seek out new challenges and opportunities…”  “I’ll miss her creative mind and her impeccable musicianship and integrity.” See more below… (more…)
