Lewis Black

Stand Up Comedy
Lewis Black's insights and love/hate relationship with America are brilliantly expressed in his concerts and TV appearances worldwide. Perhaps best known for his hilarious rants on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," Lewis' live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He yells so they don't have to. He is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves silly while still making making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

Funk, Jazz, R&B/Soul
Part Jimi Hendrix, part James Brown and all New Orleans, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is the bandleader and frontman of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, a hard-edged funk band that employs brass-band beats, rock dynamics and improvisation in a jazz tradition. NPR hailed him as “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation,” and New York Magazine wrote that “Trombone Shorty takes in a century-plus worth of sounds—ragtime and jazz and gospel and soul and R&B and hip-hop—and attacks everything he plays with festive fervor.” A 2011 GRAMMY Award nominee for his album Backatown (Verve), Andrews’ virtuosity and high-energy live shows have drawn unanimous raves worldwide with Rolling Stone calling him a “must-see act.”

Jake Shimabukuro

Acoustic
Virtuoso and iconic ukulele rock star returns by popular demand. Shimabukuro has singularly altered expectations for his instrument. From his early days in Hawaii to a viral sensation playing George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on YouTube, his album has reached #1 in Billboard's Top World Music Albums. From collaborations with Alan Parsons to Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a PBS documentary about his life, Shimabukuro’s career makes a significant statement: the ukulele, with its humble four strings and modest two-octave range, is limited only by the imagination and creativity of the person playing it. In Shimabukuro’s hands, it is easy to believe the ukulele is capable of anything.

Symphony Tacoma: Rainier Sunrise

Orchestral, Classical

Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll was a birthday gift to his wife and dedicated to their newborn son, Siegfried.

Symphony Tacoma: Saxophone Fusion

Orchestral, Classical, Jazz
Sarah Ioannides, Conductor | James Carter, Saxophone. Diverse cultures and rare influences present a wide representation of our society. Fanny Mendelssohn’s Overture in C was her only-known full orchestral work, written at a time when musical careers were considered inappropriate for women. Puerto Rico native Roberto Sierra’s Caribbean Rhapsody, written for saxophone virtuoso James Carter, combines classical and Latin jazz influences. Poulenc’s satirical Sinfonietta represents works by Les Six, a group of young composers who sought to free French music from foreign domination in post-World War I Europe. Milhaud’s La Création du Monde tells the creation story according to African folk mythology with influences of Harlem Renaissance jazz and a multimedia film with art visuals, from African tribal sculptures to works by Picasso and Gaugin.
