Buried Treasure

Buried Treasure is all about finding ways of opening the heart and connecting with the world and the people in it. Multi-genre songwriter and storyteller Keith Torgan takes us on a musical journey that explores these connections from many different angles and links the audience to their own internal struggles around growing up, finding relationships, getting married, dealing with politics, and the spiritual life. Buried Treasure inspires us all to look at our own lives in this witty, poignant, and joyous performance. Flutist Barbara Siesel's glorious accompaniment enhances the songs with her exquisite playing, adding a layer of depth and emotion that elevates the entire experience.

Now We Can Sing

Envision a world where pursuing your deepest passion is hindered by the color of your hair, the freckles on your skin, or simply thinking a bit differently. “Now We Can Sing” unfolds as a poignant and uplifting musical journey, spotlighting the music banned to Jewish musicians in 1930s Germany by the Nazis. This immersive event traces the paths of these resilient artists through the harrowing era, culminating in their migration to a new land and the forging of new lives. In the face of adversity, the melodies that were once suppressed now soar, creating a powerful narrative that resonates with the triumph of the human spirit and the enduring ability of music to transcend oppression.

This concert includes music from the baroque to the contemporary, as well as Barbara’s thoughts and commentary on the selections. This is a wonderful and peaceful way to spend an afternoon or evening.
