Rebel - Hark the Bright Seraphim!
A majestic, highly-virtuosic program of vocal and instrumental music by four quintessential composers: J.S. Bach, Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi, which perfectly blends Sherezade Panthaki's effervescent soprano and the clarion sound of John Thiessen's natural trumpet, with REBEL's signature incisiveness.

Verdi's Rigoletto
The court jester Rigoletto (Mark Delavan) loves his daughter Gilda (Lyubov Petrova) nearly as much as he hates the Duke of Mantua (Michael W. Lee). The Duke steals Gilda's honor, and the jester must continue to joke, even as he plans revenge. Rigoletto sometimes takes a joke too far for the comfort of his audience. But, this being opera, Rigoletto is met not by boos, but by a curse, when one of his jokes gets a little too personal. Antony Walker conducts.

The Travellers
The music of The Travellers creates the perfect blend of modern music and traditional western Chinese folk music. Combining the ancient people's special Dombra (traditional Mongolian instrument), the Matouqin (two-string horse head fiddle), the shaman drum, the African drum, the Hoomei. By mixing the Chinese Long Song form together with modern music and chanting, you can feel their passion towards nature and life.
