In another exciting collaboration with Boulder's very own eTown Hall, we present a Community Music Night : Dance Edition!
Our musical evenings are akin to a musical version of "Ignite Boulder" where all of our musicians are every-day folk: Scientists, teachers, engineers, and more. Yet they all have one thing in common: A passion for music and community.
At our special dance event you'll explore diverse musical styles from nearly two dozen local musicians of all ages. In lieu of concert style, we will open the dance floor so you can get your boogie on while our musicians provide a potpourri of musical styles, from tango and waltz, to folk, hip-hop, and more! Of course, with our special dance theme, be prepared for some fun surprises such as local guest troops, Ladies's Choice, and more!
This interactive, musically spirited evening is sure to entertain. All ages welcome, and in community spirit be sure to invite your family, friends, and neighbors!
About the Performers:
Ben Fullerton, House Drummer
Our favorite house drummer, Ben Fullerton returns and will be taking center stage by providing us the danceable beats all night long! While pursuing performance studies at the Berklee College of Music, he developed severe tendonitis forcing an indefinite hiatus. He sought new outlets for his creativity and after receiving a camera for Christmas found himself unable to stop taking pictures. Now a professional photographer and filmmaker, Ben returned to his musical roots when he couldn't find the right music for a film project and decided to make it himself. Ben is a Community Music Night regular and we could not be luckier to have his expertise, friendship, and jovial spirit.
Brad Ferree, Violin, Piano, Improv
Brad has quickly become a regular with our group and we are ever so excited to have his amazing talent and wonderful personality! A music teacher by day, Brad is an extremely versatile musician who is working hard to prepare some violin waltz duets and more.
Jeff Schuler, Violin
A hopeful regular, Jeff returns for a second performance with our group to share his beautiful violin melodies. A computer scientist by training, Jeff is also an avid runner and adventurer. He will join Brad in performing some dreamy duo violin waltzes.
Alexander White (Tuba) & Trevor Villwock (Piano)
Debuting with our group and at eTown, this young duo is sure to delight! As students currently studying at CU (Alex for music performance and Trevor for music composition), this duo will undertake the challenge of a variety of styles to get your toes tapping!
Paul Sommer (Mandolin), Dave Solzberg (Bass) & Zac Allan (Guitar)
Returning to Community Music Night for a second show, Paul & Co hail from a homegrown band, BoxCar79. This talented trio will share some original & covered folk tunes to get our Do-Si-Do on community style. We love their sound and hope you do, too!
Leslie Ann Leddy, Pianist, Vocalist, Composer, & Guest Dancer
Another local music teacher and Community Music Night regular, this Georgia Peach has truly lit up our stage with her beautiful piano compositions and bubbly personality. Having studied piano in college at Furman and Shorter Universities, her previous professional experiences have given her the opportunity to perform with the Greenville Symphony Opera, the Furman University Choral, the Shorter University Choral, and travel and perform in East Europe, Greece, Europe, Honduras and Costa Rica. She has won several awards of honor, music scholarships, and was honorably invited to attend the St. Petersburg's Piano Institute, Russia at age 16.
While competitions and performances have been her past experiences, her current passions are teaching, composing, and collaborating with other musicians. We again look forward to welcoming her to eTown to light up the stage!
Steven Buck, Electric Guitarist
A local engineer and researcher, Steve secretly rocks out in the evenings and has even been known to portray Prince from time to time! For this special dance event, Steve is working with several musicians to prepare a tribute 'throw-back' dance in the spirit of good plain fun.
Dieter Bruhn, Impromptu Singer-Songwriter & Guest Dancer
Returning to Community Music Night for our dance special is Dieter Bruhn. This time, not only will Dieter bring some smiles through music, but this multi-talented gentleman will assist as a dance lead in the crowd. Dieter enjoys uniting people through music and dance, and is excited to again share his passions with his home community.
Trish Zornio, Community Music Night Host & Founder
Piano, Guitar, Flute, Vocals, Singer-Songwriter/Composer
A Jill-of-All-Trades, Trish delights in developing ideas and projects of a variety of topics. When she began revisiting her own passion for music in 2013, she quickly discovered many of her friends harbored hidden talents as well. The first several events were hosted on her own front porch in downtown Boulder, and after much growth it is with delight a collaboration with eTown was born.
You'll find her as the host of the evening, as well as performing and dancing with her friends. Primarily a pianist and singer-songerwriter, Trish also plays flute, guitar, and grew up with a variety of musical influences such as classical, musical theatre, jazz, orchestra, indie and pop. By day, Trish works at the Stanford University School of Medicine and spends her time between learning the new ways of Silicon Valley and enjoying her favorites here in Boulder, her home of over five years.
