Florence Foster Jenkins was an eccentric wealthy socialite whose utter inability to carry a tune never prevented her from holding recitals at the Ritz Carlton or selling out Carnegie Hall. Told through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosme McMoon, Stephen Temperley's hilariously off-key Souvenir has been called "the funniest show on Broadway since The Producers." It's a wonderful and poignant journey through her performances that were the talk of New York. Tome' Cousin directs.

Newberry Consort - Rosas das Rosas: Cantigas de Santa Maria
While languishing in ilness, Alfonso X - twelfth-century king of Castille, Leon and Galicia—prayed to the Virgin Mary for divine intercession that he might survive. After his recovery, he commissioned songs, or cantigas, recounting the Virgin's miracles and singing her praises. Set to compelling melodies, these cantigas are, at turns, funny, moving, and even awe inspiring. This multimedia production includes lavish images from the E codex, currently held in El Escorial, Spain.
