The world’s premier pipa virtuoso, WU MAN, is the leading ambassador of Chinese music. (The pipa is a lute-like instrument with a history of more than two thousand years!) The Grammy Award-nominated artist’s adventurous musical spirit shines through in this collaborative performance with THE KNIGHTS, a contemporary orchestra from a broad spectrum of the New York music world who creatively engage audiences in the shared joy of musical performance. Led by an open-minded spirit of camaraderie and exploration, they expand the concert experience by showcasing their roots in the classical tradition and their passion for musical discovery.
RAMONA QUIMBY, the exasperating but lovable third-grader, has delighted young readers for over fifty years through the books of Newbery Medal-winning writer Beverly Cleary. Now, she comes to life on the stage. Growing up isn’t easy, especially for Ramona! Her life is a mess. Her older sister Beezus is a pain, her Aunt Bea may marry a dork, and her Dad just lost his job. She even thinks that her teacher hates her. But with the help of her loving and patient family and friends, Ramona faces these challenges – as audiences laugh and cheer her on.
