Tabard 2016-2017 Season Event




April 7–30

DID SOMEONE SAY “MUSICAL?”… Tabard wraps up its 2016-2017 season with MUSICAL OF MUSICALS (The Musical!), a musical about, well, musicals, in this hilarious send-up of favorite and famous Broadway musicals and their creators.

With entirely original music and lyrics, the work of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Kander and Ebb is spotlighted in this loving satire and homage to musical theatre.

Written by the composing team of Joanne Bogart (lyrics and book) and Eric Rockwell (music and book), MUSICAL OF MUSICALS (The Musical!) received a 2004 Drama Desk nomination for Best Musical, as well as individual nominations for Best Music and Best Lyrics.

MUSICAL OF MUSICALS (The Musical!) will be directed by Doug Baird, with music direction by Samuel Cisneros.

May 6, 8pm

Nineteen concludes it 2016 – 2017 concert season at the Tabard with a program of pieces by the unique composer, trumpeter, band leader, and author, Don Ellis. Mr. Ellis's musical career was as eclectic as it was tragically short. Over a period of only twenty-two years, he played with many of the great jazz musicians, led a wide variety of ensembles – with which he toured the globe extensively and with great success, and wrote prolifically. His compositions are known for frequent use of unusual, asymmetric meters (just ask the band!), and unconventional tonal concepts. This reflects the influence of his studies of music from around the world. His ensembles at various times used electronics, a choral group, augmented brass ensembles, string quartets, tabla and sitar. 

We are pleased to share the stage this evening with the West Valley College Jazz Emsemble, who will perform the first half of the evening's concert. Watch and listen as today's young artists continue the great evolution of jazz across generations.
