'They can do what they want after I'm dead,' he declared. Since Berlin's  passing, ASCAP award-winning writer/director Chip Deffaa has written no less than five different shows about Berlin, developing them at the 13th Street Theater in New York City.  (more...)

PSYWE to Conclude Season with HEAVEN AND EARTH Concert, 5/22PSYWE to Conclude Season with HEAVEN AND EARTH Concert, 5/22
by BWW News Desk - Apr 28, 2016

Orange County, Calif.—April 27, 2016—The young and talented musicians of Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble (PSYWE), grades 8-12, conclude their season with a heavenly array of moving and arresting music. The program, “Heaven and Earth,” features works that are both naturally and divinely inspired—from the “lightning in a bottle” of John Mackey's 2015 “Lightning Field,” to the natural sounds of rain in Whitacre's “Cloudburst,” to Grainger's impressions of a typical day in Australia in “Colonial Song,” and the spiritual underpinnings of Maslanka's “Give Us This Day.” Also, for the first time in PSYWE history, the ensemble performs a new composition by one of its own members, trumpeter Kai Quizon, who wrote “Impulse” over his summer break after working with Symphony composer-in-residence Narong Prangcharoen. These talented brass, woodwind and percussion musicians come together to perform this moving selection of music on Sunday, May 22, at 1 p.m., in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.

BWW Review: Circle Players' OF MICE AND MENBWW Review: Circle Players' OF MICE AND MEN
by Jeffrey Ellis - Nov 1, 2015

In Of Mice and Men, writer John Steinbeck relates the tale of two lifelong friends whose hard-scrabble lives are played out against the backdrop of the Great Depression: two men whose bleak existence is made even more challenging by the cruel realities of the world at that time. Since its publication in 1937, Steinbeck's slim novella has inspired artists to offer different interpretations of the story - to varying degrees of success, to be certain - including numerous film versions, a Carlisle Floyd opera, ballets and stage productions, including a recent Broadway run and, closer to home, a production now onstage from Middle Tennessee's oldest community theater organization.
