BWW Feature: Mark and Ryan Kleinman, Living the Dream
by Jeanmarie Simpson - Apr 23, 2017

I am incredibly proud of all my kids and Ryan is pursuing his dream as a performer. He has been performing for quite awhile now as a professional and I have had the idea that this would be so since about his Junior year in High School. I have always taken the time to include my kids (when they have shown an interest) into the shows I was doing. Ryan and his older sister, Kaitlynn, were able to be more inundated with it at a young age as I was more active as a professional performer and they got to be backstage and at rehearsal, and often in shows with me. Whenever I was in a show that needed kids, I got them an audition and, since they were talented, often got cast, so we were able to share the stage. Sound of Music, South Pacific, Music Man, Secret Garden, A Christmas Carol, all shows that my kids been able to share with me. (more...)

Tina Chancey, John Mark Rozendaal, Webb Wiggins Perform In the Salon of Mademoiselle Lévi
by BWW News Desk - Apr 18, 2017

Who was the mysterious Mlle. Levi, whose pardessus playing took Paris by storm in 1745? Thought to come from somewhere in the provinces, she burst upon the Concerts Spirituels, a complete unknown; performed there an unprecedented five times in three years among such luminaries as Guignon and Leclair; and then disappeared from view, only to reappear in the Mercure Galant in 1783, advertising for pupils. There is reason to believe she was a Jewess who may have married an officer stationed in the colonies. When she returned to Paris three decades later, quite possibly widowed and penniless, did she try to rekindle the embers of her earlier success by launching her own salon, where she could perform for, and mingle with potential aristocratic students? This concert features music by Mlle. Levi's friends and contemporaries, composers as Leclair, Marais, Forqueray, Rebel and Couperin, performed by Tina Chancey on five and six-stringed pardessus de viole, John Mark Rozendaal on bass and treble viols, and Webb Wiggins on harpsichord.
