Crocodile Rockin' in Northwood
The Northwood Theater Workshop is kicking off its music series with a concert by "Gerald Brann: A Tribute To Elton John" on Saturday, May 31. Brann, widely considered as one of the world's top Elton John look alike/sound alike tribute artists, will be performing a rare solo acoustic show, playing intimate versions of Elton John favorites such as "Your Song", "Crocodile Rock", and "Rocket Man". Supporting the bill will be internationally renowned singer/songwriter Christian Cuff (below left). Cuff, who started playing shows for extra money in between his seasonal jobs in Bar Harbor, Maine and New York City a few years ago has catapulted his musical career into a journey that has taken him around the world and rolled out the red carpet for his much anticipated and highly acclaimed debut CD "Silo". He has wooed audiences from Melbourne to Amsterdam to New York City and is playing one night only in Northwood on the eve of his next European tour.
Also performing are local singer/songwriters Krystal Polychronis andStephanie Boardman. Polychronis, a native of Rochester, has already in her young career sold some of her songs to Paramount/DreamWorks.
Voices of Hope Hosts “To Life!” Gala
Against a simple, sheer backdrop, the voices and message of Voices of Hope shone at their October 17th “To Life!” Gala at the North Shore Music Theatre. Founder and president Greg Chastain created the non-profit following his mother’s passing from cancer in 2009; Voices of Hope raises money for cancer research through theatrical performance, mounting a Gala with dance numbers, vocal performances, and emotional testimonials in the autumn, and a full-length musical in the spring.
Special guests included singer-songwriter and two-time cancer survivor Charlie Scopoletti, as well as the Andover High School Chorus, who performed Eric Whitacre’s haunting “Fly to Paradise,” and a selection from the musical Rent. Jordan Rich of WBZ News Radio 1030, the evening’s MC, alternated wisecracks and meaningful sentiments, proclaiming in his welcoming remarks, “Tonight is about life, and hope, and living beyond cancer.” The evening also marked the debut of “We Are The Voices,” the group’s new anthem, composed by members Krystal Polychronis and Peter Tentindo.
