Carrie, the telekinetic musical adapted from Stephen King’s novel Carrie, is the story of an awkward teenage girl with special powers who struggles for acceptance. Her lonely life is dominated by an oppressive religious fanatic mother and the unforgiving judgmental attitudes of her classmates. However, Carrie has hope when one girl befriends her. Just when everything seems perfect a horrible prank unleashes Carrie’s telekinetic powers on her high school classmates and teachers, destroying all. Carrie has a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and music by Michael Gore.

Olga is a young a cappella group that approaches old traditions in a fresh way, combining enthusiasm, humor, and drama with genuine vocal clarity to enrapture both young and old. Their repertoire covers more than five centuries of musical joy, and the ensemble is already known for their unique programs, in which moving classical music comes together with popular repertoire. They can sing a medieval Icelandic drinking song and follow it with a top-40 hit. The ensemble, which includes Dutch, Icelandic, and Russian members, was founded in 2012 while the members of the group were students at the Utrecht Conservatory in the Netherlands. Since then they have toured internationally and recently released their first recording, which includes music from the Netherlands, Iceland, Russia, Scotland, and America.

Frederic Chiu’s intriguing style springs from a diverse set of experiences and interests – his Asian/American/ European background, his musical training, and an early and ongoing exploration of artificial intelligence and human psychology, especially the body-mind-heart connection. With over 20 CDs on the market, some have been singled out, such as “Record of the Year” by Stereo Review, “Top 10 recordings” by The New Yorker, with raves from The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. He was the recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Petscheck Award of the Juilliard School, and was a fellow of the American Pianist Association. Chiu’s program will include selections by Bach, Debussy, and Prokofiev.
