Current Programs

A Suitcase Full of Chocolate with Lincoln Mayorga

a documentary screening with a piano performance, Q&A, and optional master classes 

A documentary thirty years in the making: The story of Russian-Jewish pianist Sofia Cosma, a phenomenal survivor of the cataclysmic events of the twentieth century, a great musician and teacher whose musical career was lost and found after many years of imprisonment and hard labor, and through it all, a devoted mother.

Lincoln Mayorga plays a mini concert from Sofia Cosma’s repertoire and talks about Sofia and the great Russian pianists who influenced her.  After the movie, Lincoln opens the floor for questions and answers.

A Suitcase Full of Chocolate screening is particularly well-suited for film festivals, conservatories, and community groups.

 

Gershwin & His New York and Hollywood  

An unusual piano recital featuring the music of George Gershwin, the major European composers who influenced him, and his professional colleagues in "Tin Pan Alley.” The new finale features Lincoln Mayorga accompanying the film "Shall We Dance?" as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance to "They All Laughed.”



American Snapshots: 200 Years of American Song
with Sheri Bauer-Mayorga, vocals

Conceived and compiled by vocalist Sheri Bauer -Mayorga, American Snapshots: Two Hundred Years of American Song is a program of songs and instrumentals representing a core sample of American music. 

Sheri Bauer- Mayorga and her husband, Lincoln, perform traditional ballads to music by Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Stephen Foster, Irving Berlin, Carmichael & Mercer, Annie Ross, Bix Beiderbecke, Phil Ochs, Tom Lehrer, Randy Newman, William Bolcom and each of the Mayorgas.

 Through the songs and piano solos, the Mayorgas wend their way through mountaintop hollers and music from the parlor, to the ballads and be-bop of the city, and into the storm of American politics.

 Jazz bassist Otto Gardner and drummer Ted MacKenzie join Sheri and Lincoln on this romp through what the Mayorgas call “The People's American Songbook.”
