Where Great Arts Support Great Education
The Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society mission is to provide financial assistance for those families who wish to attend Catholic elementary schools and provide a values based education for their children. We do this through a series of concerts featuring Grammy nominated and award winning performers. At the same time, we look to provide a benefit to the Greater Cincinnati area by providing high quality entertainment in an upscale theater setting and offering these performances at an affordable price, providing a win for everyone. Our organization has the unique distinction of benefitting the arts as well as education.
2014-2015 CONCERT SEASON
California Guitar Trio with guest Tony Levin - January 31, 2015
Since 1991, the group has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres. The trio’s questing spirit drives it to explore the intersections between rock, jazz, classical, and world music. It even throws in the occasional surf or spaghetti Western tune for good measure.
Comprised of Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya and Paul Richards, the group has established a unique, personal connection with audiences. In addition to dazzling musicianship and interplay, The California Guitar Trio’s (CGT) shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concertgoers to feel like they’re part of the music, not just spectators. In fact, the group’s goal is to transcend their instruments, so people focus on the music first, and its considerable technical prowess a distant second.
Tony Levin is an American musician and composer, specializing in electric bass, Chapman Stick and upright bass. He also sings and plays synthesizer. Levin is best known for his work with progressive rock pioneers King Crimson and Peter Gabriel.
