Jazz musicians are blessed with the desire and ability to play a genre that has a history as rich as its sound.  All the greats, past and present know that it’s not enough to simply play the notes, one has to live the music and feel it with every breath. When Mack Avenue recording artist, Tia Fuller picks up her sax to play, the two become one and something amazing happens as the notes and reverberations of her musical elixir fill the room.  Suddenly, everything in the universe feels right and it’s easy to see and hear why this artist and teacher, who has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, (Magna Cum Laude) and Master’s degree in Jazz Pedagogy and Performance from the University of Colorado at Boulder (Summa Cum Laude), was selected to be a member of the all-female band touring with R&B star, Beyoncé.

Anthony J Rudisill: National Parks America's Last Refuge
A. J. Rudisill, who was born in Philadelphia PA, describes himself as a self-taught artist. Inspired by John James Audubon, he began drawing wildlife as a child. While a teenager, he relocated to Southern New Jersey and became a commercial artist. Greatly influenced by the surrounding coastal marshes, he indulged his passion for painting wildlife scenes in his spare time and became adept at the portrayal of the abundant wildlife in the area, particularly birds. As a painter, he preferred gouache over traditional watercolor and oil. When he turned his hand to sculpture, he used his firsthand observation of birds, transferring his knowledge and keen attention to detail from one medium to another.
 
Today, Rudisill’s passion is painting landscapes and seascapes, influenced by his current surroundings and by his travels throughout the United States. Preferring to work in acrylics today, Rudisill’s paintings are of an exceptional quality, so realistic they invite the viewer to experience the scene as if they are standing on the beach, cliff or mountainside.

Varekai Cirque Du Soleil
Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world, a world where something else is possible.  A world called Varekai.

The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekaibegins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind.

The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers.  Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.

The self-described "rock and roll band with horns" began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental, rock band and later moved to a predominantly softer sound, generating several hit ballads. The group had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Second only to The Beach Boys in Billboard singles and albums chart success among American bands, Chicago is one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups in history.
 
REO Speedwagon (originally styled as R.E.O. Speedwagon) is an American rock band. Formed in 1967, the band cultivated a following during the 1970s and achieved significant commercial success throughout the 1980s. Hi Infidelity (1980) contained four US Top 40 hits and is the group's best-selling album, with over ten million copies sold.
 
Over the course of its career, the band has sold more than 40 million records and has charted thirteen Top 40 hits, including the number ones "Keep On Loving You" and "Can't Fight This Feeling". REO Speedwagon's mainstream popularity dissipated in the 1990s but the band remains a popular live act.
