We love keeping up with our friends, old and new and trying to highlight some of them here on our blog from time to time. Here is some information about a few of them, enjoy!
We have a brand new video from Bill Frisell’s new album to share today. “A Beautiful View” is a track from the album titled Big Sur to be released on Okey Records this month. The Big Sur Quintet is made up of Bill Frisell on guitar, Jenny Scheinman on violin, Eyvind Kang on viola, Hank Roberts on cello and Rudy Royston on drums. The album was produced by Lee Townsend. All footage was shot on Super-8 and edited by Monica Jane Frisell during the recording at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California in April of 2013.
Our friend Zach is a very talented individual, so it’s no surprise to see his ‘Panorama Ephemera‘ receive high praise from Cincinnati.com. Check out the review here and watch a video from a previous Emery performance below. And don’t miss Panorama Ephemera this week during CincyFringe at the Know Theatre Wednesday, June 5 @ 9:00pm

Jeremy Pinnell and The 55′s, one of our favorite honky tonk bands and one of the best live acts in Cincinnati, continue to work their butts off playing live around the Cincinnati area. Do you best to check them out in person at upcoming shows tonight at Northside Tavern, every Thursday at Japps or later this summer at the Whispering Beard Folk Festival.
The Emery Theatre and The Requiem Project are honored to have received two awards recently. The Requiem Project is focused on the development of an innovative arts destination for creative possibility and believes meaningful artistic interactions create community.
Requiem was the proud recipient of $1,500, finishing second among over 40 other non-profits, for their work with Starfire U, a four year community building experience for adults with disabilities.
Tina Manchise and Tara Gordon, who head up The Requiem Project also received recognition. The two women were the recipients the Magnified Giving Award of $1,500 and received “Rising Star” awards from Starfire U. for their investment in continuing relationships with graduates.
The Emery and Tina and Tara would like to thank Magnified Giving and our dear friends at Starfire U. for this generous investment into the future of The Emery Theatre.
Our network of friends who have performed at The Emery continues to grow, and we like to keep tabs on what our talented friends are up to. Here is an update on a few of them.
- Port St. Willow, who played at The Emery during last years MidPoint Music Festival, recently received some praise from Brian Eno. From Consequence Of Sound…
After garnering praise from the incomparable Brian Eno, Port St. Willow’s 2012 debut Holiday received a much deserved re-release from Downtown Recordings. Not wanting to bore old fans with a simple rehashing of the album, Nicholas Principe, the man behind the band, recorded a sweeping 25-minute suite to tag off the record.
- And finally, check out this fantastic poster from another MidPoint show at The Emery from last fall. It was also done by a great local group, PowerHouse Factories, check out more of their work here.
