Noted author, columnist, and playwright Mitch Albom again takes us into the world of musical comedy with his irresistible farce Hockey - The Musical! Now in its second season after a hugely successful eight-week run in Detroit in summer 2016, Hockey - The Musical! is described by Albom himself as "Spamalot - with hockey sticks." This is sure to draw theater and sports fans alike. When God decides there are too many sports in the world, he chooses to eliminate one of them - hockey. But that doesn't sit well with fans of the underdog game. So God says that if five pure-of-heart souls can plead their case to save their beloved sport, he'll reconsider. Watch the hilarity unfold as five misfits sing and dance their way toward saving hockey in this raucous, bawdy, foot-tapping musical, an Albom original.

Beethoven: String Quartet in F Major, Opus 18 #1; Beethoven: String Quartet in F Minor, Opus 95 “Serioso;” and Brahms: Piano Quintet in F Minor, Opus 34. Praised by The New Yorker as “a fresh and vital young participant in what is a golden age of American string quartets,” the Daedalus Quartet has established itself as a leader among the new generation of string ensembles. The Daedalus Quartet has impressed critics and listeners alike with the security, technical finish, interpretive unity, and sheer gusto of its performances. Lauded by The Washington Post for playing “…with intelligence, poetry and proportion,” pianist Tanya Bannister’s recent victories at the Concert Artists Guild International Competition and the New Orleans International Piano Competition confirm her status among the leading pianists of her generation.
