Entertainment from:

Rich Barry
Holidays Favorites On Classical Guitar

Rich Barry started playing the guitar at the age of four and by nine gave his first prize winning public performance at Steadman Auditorium. By the age of twelve he had already studied with nine university level instructors, won several music competitions and began studying with Dr. Pablo Cohen, the professor of guitar at Ithaca College and Cornell University. At 18 he entered The Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University where he was awarded the Rose and Leon J. Neiburg Scholarship and during graduate school received a full scholarship assistantship. While at Peabody, Rich studied with the esteemed pedagogue and performer Julian Gray, the current chair of Peabody's guitar department.

 42nd Street Singers


 Joe Baione

The relative rarity of vibraphonists in the history of jazz remains one of the musical genre’s true mysteries.  Despite the natural beauty of the instrument’s sound and the historical importance and celebrated popularity of its most famous players – Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson and Bobby Hutcherson – comparatively few artists have chosen to make the vibraphone their primary means of expression.  Fortunately, Joe Baione has and he shows that the vibes and the mallets with which he plays them are in very good hands.  
On his latest release, OH YEAH!,  Baione builds upon the success of The Superhero using the same stellar sextet instrumentation with one important addition to the lineup – that is the enlistment of veteran producer Todd Barkan as a member of the team. Barkan, who regularly worked with Hampton-Jackson-Hutcherson triumvirate of vibists (as well as many other of the music’s most important artists) during his years as owner of the legendary Keystone Korner says, “In addition to being one of the hardest swinging members of his generation of vibers, Joe consistently reaches his listeners with the distinctiveness of his musical voice as both a truly creative virtuoso on his instrument and an increasingly compelling composer.  In short, both his playing and his tunes speak more and more clearly and strongly to us." Baione was honored as “Rising Star of Tomorrow” by Jazz at Lincoln Center and “Emerging Jazz Artist” by Philadelphia Weekly in 2007.

 Pazon Quartet


 Velvet and Tweed


Newly established, the Velvet and Tweed horn quartet features some of the finest horn players the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area has to offer!

The group looks forward to their first recording project (spring 2014) that will feature new works by up and coming composers.  For more information on Velvet and Tweed, including how to book us for your private event, please visit http://www.acollinshorn.com/velvet-and-tweed.html
