On Stage: Kennett Symphony opens new season

By Denny Dyroff, Entertainment Editor, The Times 

Kennett Symphony’s Music Director Michael Hall

On October 15, the Kennett Symphony will open its 2023-2024 season with a program called “Masterworks 1: Stories of Love and Nature.

The concert, which will run from 7:30-9:30 p.m., will be performed in the Exhibition Hall at Longwood Gardens (1001 Longwood Road, Kennett Square, kennettsymphony.org).

The program will feature Glenn Buhr’s “Akasha (Sky),” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Violin Concerto No.4” with Risa Hokamura as soloist, Felix Mendelssohn’s “The Hebrides (Fingal’s Cave)” and Jean Sibelius’ “Pelleas and Melisande.”

The Symphony’s website invites listeners to “enjoy an exploration of themes of love and nature in the beautiful surroundings of Longwood Gardens. Taking inspiration from Hindu poetry, Canadian composer Glenn Buhr wrote a lighter-than-air piece entitled “Akasha”; Sanskrit for Sky. Mendelssohn was inspired by the rugged islands off Scotland’s coast to write the Hebrides, whereas Sibelius captured in music the tragic love story of Pelleas and Melisande.

“We’ll do a pre-concert talk at 6:30 p.m. so that folks can get to know the music before the show,” said Kennett Symphony Music Director Michael Hall, during a phone interview Wednesday afternoon.

“After the concert, we’ll have a post-show Q&A. We encourage people to stay and have a chat with us.

“The how is divided in two halves. The first half starts with ‘Akasha,’ which means ‘sky’ in Sanskrit.

“The piece is just four minutes long. It’s a lighter-than-air piece – a lot of fluttering and a lot of activity. It’s light and spacey.

“Mozart wrote five violin concertos. We’re performing the Fourth with Risa Hokamura as soloist. It’s a 25-minute piece.

“All of Mozart’s violin concertos are beautiful. The Fourth is light – humorous even. It’s very simple.

“Risa is a wonderful young violinist. She comes to us from YCA – Young Concert Artists.”

After intermission, the symphony returns with a powerful piece by Mendelssohn.

“Because the concert is inspired by nature and love, we said – what kind of music do we need?,” said Hall. “This piece was written by Mendelssohn when he was a young man visiting the Hebrides. He was so impressed with the nature there, he wrote a piece. It has an undulating character representing waves – moments of crescendo like waves hitting the rocks.

“The last piece combines love and nature – nature and music that accompanies nature. With the concert being at Longwood Gardens, it’s really an inspiration from the venue itself – the beauty of nature.

“It’s a 30-minute piece with very short movements – at the seashore, spring in the park. It opens with Fingal’s Gate – confronting the big stone walls of a castle.”

Pretty Woman: The Musical

This weekend, the Grand is presenting the Wilmington premiere of “Pretty Woman: The Musical” at The Playhouse on Rodney Square (1007 North Market Street, Wilmington, Delaware, www.BroadwayInWilmington.org) for five performances only from October 13-15. “Pretty Woman: The Musical” is part of the 2023-2024 Broadway in Wilmington season presented by Bank of America.

“Pretty Woman,” which is based on the iconic movie of the same name that featured Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, is out on a national tour that had its opening night on October 3 in Ithaca, New York.

The show, which is based on one of Hollywood’s most beloved romantic stories of all, springs to life with a powerhouse creative team led by two-time Tony Award®-winning director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray, Kinky Boots, Legally Blonde). “Pretty Woman: The Musical” features an original score by Grammy® winner Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance (“Summer of ’69”, “Heaven”), and a book by the movie’s legendary director Garry Marshall and screenwriter J. F. Lawton.

The musical adaptation of the movie flows seamlessly and the show is propelled by a stellar cast featuring mostly young talent along with a few stage veterans.

Leading the North American tour as Vivian Ward and Edward Lewis are Ellie Baker and Chase Wolfe. Joining them are Rae Davenport as Kit De Luca, Adam Du Plessis as Happy Man/Mr. Thompson, and Liam Searcy as Philip Stuckey.

Rounding out the company in alphabetical order are Matthew Blum, Brianna Clark, Kerry D’Jovanni, Vincent DiPeri, Lauren Esser, Charlie Fusari, Steven Gagliano, Justin Glass, Christian Maxwell Henry, Alexandra Kinsley, Joshua Kring, Bethany McDonald, Robert Miller, Hank Santos, Taylor M. Sheppard, Devyn Trondson, Elana Valastro, Sarah Wang, and Channing Weir.

du Plessis is a South African actor living and working in the States. His South African credits include “Macbeth,” “CATS,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “The Boys in the Photograph,” “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “The Last 5 Years.”

He also toured internationally with “Phantom of the Opera” and “We Will Rock You.” Since relocating to the United States. Du Plessis has done “Rock of Ages,” “Annie” and “Kinky Boots.”

“I had actually seen ‘Pretty Woman’ in Chicago when it was doing a pre-Broadway run,” said du Plessis, during a phone interview last week from a tour stop in Ithaca. In March this year, I did an audition. I had my eye on the Happy Man role – the ‘Fairy Godfather of Hollywood Boulevard.’

“I was very familiar with the movie. I had a sister who was in love with the movie. I also knew the creative team. I had worked with them on ‘Kinky Boots’ – especially Jerry Mitchell and Bryan Adams.

“In this show, I play five different characters – all under the umbrella of Happy Man. I’m almost like a narrator. He’s always himself but also has these different characters.”

du Plessis has become an established actor in both South Africa and North America.

“I’ve been involved in theater my whole life,” said du Plessis. “I grew up in Port Elizabeth (South Africa) and started singing when I was six.

“I’ve been doing theater productions since I was 11. I studied drama at the University of Cape Town and then played in “Phantom of the Opera” in South Africa.

“After that, I did ‘Rock of Ages’ on the Norwegian Cruise Line. I did cruise line shows for five years. Then, I moved to the states a year-and-a-half ago and got cast in the National Tour of ‘Annie.’ Now, I’m doing Happy Man. It’s the most exciting role I’ve ever done.”

“Pretty Woman: The Musical” has original scenic design by David Rockwell, tour scenic design by Christine Peters, costume design by Gregg Barnes, lighting design by Kenneth Posner and Philip S. Rosenberg, sound design by John Shivers, hair design by Josh Marquette, makeup design by Fiona Mifsud, and music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Will Van Dyke.

Featured in the musical is Roy Orbison and Bill Dee’s international smash hit song “Oh, Pretty Woman,” which inspired the much-loved movie. The film, “Pretty Woman,” was an international smash hit when it was released in 1990. It’s an iconic brand. With ‘Pretty Woman,’ the movie’s brand is bigger than most. It’s the biggest Rom-Com ever.

“Pretty Woman: The Musical” is running now through October 15 at the Playhouse. Show times are Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 and 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 and 7:30 p.m.

Ticket prices start at $40.

Tom Rush, one of America’s most revered folksingers, is a New Englander through and through. However, in recent years, he has built a connection with Chester County.

One of his last live shows prior to the COVID pandemic was a concert at the Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center. Rush returned to the area in March for a show at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville.

Now, the veteran troubadour is coming back again. On October 13, Rush will headline a show at the Sellersville Theater (24 West Temple Avenue, Sellersville, www.st94.com) with Seth Glier as the opening act.

Rush releases an album just slightly more frequently than blue supermoons appear in the Northern hemisphere skies.

His last three albums – “What I Know” in 2009, “Celebrates 50 Years of Music” in 2013 and “Voices” in 2018 were all released via West Chester-based Appleseed Records.

“‘Voices’ is my last record – not my last but my most recent album,” said Rush, during a phone interview last week from his home in Southern Maine on the New Hampshire border. “I actually have a new album ready to come out.

“I have a studio at home but it’s more camera gear for my Rockport Sundays podcasts. My producer Matt Nakoa found a very nice studio in Connecticut – Carriage House Studio – and we were there in spring 2023. We arrived on Match 28 and recorded up until April 3. We did 13 tracks and some instrumentals.

“One is a brand-new track that is about 50 years old that was never released. It was taken from a radio show I did in Philly with Gene Shay. I played it for Matt, and he said we’ve got to record this one. Another song was one I wrote for my baby and she’s now 24 years old. And there are some brand-new ones. The last song was titled, “I Quit” – but I’m not quitting.

“The songs are all originals. ‘Voices’ had two traditional songs. This one has ‘Gimme Some of It,’ which I heard somewhere. It sounds like a traditional jug band song, but I don’t know where it came from.

“We spent five days in the studio. The first take on each was just a practice and the second was for real. We got a lot on the second take and never did more than three takes.

“The album has a lot of songs that I felt good about including three songs that are different – takes on a breakup. As usual, I’m just all over the place – silly songs and songs that will make you cry.

“I’m not quite sure why I’m making an album. With Spotify, the royalty I make for 1,000 listens is one cent. The good news for me is that I’ve always made my living on stage.”

What was the catalyst for making a new album after a five-year gap?

“Matt got tired of me saying someday I’ll make a new album,” said Rush. “He got tired of waiting so he booked the studio and lined up musicians including Seth Glier on accordion and harmonium and Joe Nearney on sax and harmonica.

Rush has worked with Nakoa in the past and is using him as his sideman for the current shows.

“I’ve been working for eight years with Matt,” said Rush. “He steals the show. He plays piano and sings like an angel. He’s also a monster guitar player.”

Rush released his first album, “Tom Rush at the Unicorn,” in 1962.  “Voices” was released in April 2018. Altogether, Rush has put out 26 albums in 60 years – and just eight since the turn of the century.

Fortunately, he is much more active when it comes to live performances. Rush is a consummate performer who always delivers an entertaining show when he takes the stage to perform his songs and choice songs by other artists.

He will be performing a number of songs from “Voices,” an album that has its own special niche in Rush’s long discography.

Over the course of his 50-year-plus career, one of Rush’s defining gifts has been his ear for the faint voices of significant new songs by little-known writers. The New England-based singer-guitarist was among the very first to record future standards by then-fledgling performers Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Jackson Browne on his 1968 album “The Circle Game.”

Rush brought a later generation of singer-songwriters such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences as part of his tours. James Taylor and country music superstar Garth Brooks have both named him as a major influence.

Until “Voices,” Rush has been heard only sparingly as a songwriter, with only a few tantalizing handfuls of originals – about 20 – spread out over eleven studio albums.

“Voices” was the first album ever of all-Rush originals – 10 relaxed, warmhearted, amused and sometimes thoughtful songs that perfectly reflect his wry persona.

“I always wrote on guitar,” said Rush. “Every song came differently. A lot of times, it’s a phrase – just a few words that suggest a melody. Sometimes, it starts with a melody. There is no pattern.

“My pattern is to write too much. Each song tended to end up too long. You find that out when you take them in front of a live audience.”

It has been more than a half-century since Rush made people take notice with one particular song — “Urge for Going,” which was written by Joni Mitchell and recorded by Rush in 1968. It quickly became one of Rush’s signature songs.

“Urge for Going” is something that seems to happen to Rush when November arrives — especially if the destination is the Delaware Valley.

Back in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the veteran singer-songwriter established a tradition of performing a series of shows over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend at the now-defunct Main Point in Bryn Mawr.

“I always played the Main Point at Thanksgiving,” said Rush. “I probably did that at least six years in a row. The first show would be Thursday night and it was always a groggy show. People were showing the effects of eating a big Thanksgiving dinner. I did two shows a night on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

“I enjoyed those days of doing multiple nights — and The Main Point was a great place to play. Jeannette (Main Point owner Jeanette Campbell) was the patron saint of the Philadelphia folk scene.”

For the show this Friday night, Seth Glier will also be featured.

“I have Seth Glier with me for these shows,” said Rush. “He’ll play his own set and then join me for some songs in my set. He’s a monster talent.”

Glier’s forthcoming album, “Everything,” is a collection of songs inviting the listener to imagine a future in which humans and the planet are re-aligned in mutual restoration.

“I wrote the first song for the album – ‘Mammoth’ — maybe three years ago,” said Glier, during a phone interview from his home in western Massachusetts.

“It caught me off guard. It’s a song about the resurrection of a woolly mammoth. It’s written from the perspective of a woolly mammoth – where does a woolly mammoth belong?

“I was in the middle of making my last record – ‘The Coronation,’ ‘Woolly Mammoth’ was the only song that didn’t belong on ‘The Coronation’ – so, I saved it for the next album.

“As a songwriter, I wanted to build a whole record about climate. I started learning about who, where and why. I found stories that interested me. One of the threats to the climate is the way we look at problems. We look at it as a binary question. We need to look at solutions we already have.”

The earth speaks to us in a myriad of ways — through ice cores, through uplift and erosion, through tree ring — languages we have the potential to restore our literacy in. Reconnecting with these quiet messages has set Glier on a path of channeling nature’s longing for communion with humanity into song. “Everything” is a collection of eight songs inviting us to imagine a future in which humans and the planet are re-aligned into mutual restoration.

Each song presents a practical climate solution with concrete optimism. The album’s title track was inspired by an experience Glier had while mushroom foraging.

“For the last three years, I’ve been obsessed with foraging for wild mushrooms,” said Glier. “The grounds are pretty fertile around here. One day, I picked up a chantarelle mushroom and it was so sweet smelling.”

It created a strange reaction for Glier.

According to Glier, “When I brought it towards my nose, I first smelled sweet apricot and then my spine straightened suddenly. The feeling was like déjà vu. It was a ‘first time,’ yet somewhere inside of me I had done this once before. I was reconnecting to a knowledge I had already known.”

Obsession had begun.

“I watched a movie about foraging,” said Glier. “I saw how mushrooms were already a part of my life. I started growing mushrooms in our guest room.

“Mushrooms are very intelligent plants. They are highly creative, and they communicate with each other. Learning about mushrooms has totally changed me as a person.”

Glier’s gifts are an innate curiosity and a fierce desire to connect with other people.

His musical acumen provides him with a vehicle for both. He was worked as a cultural diplomat for the US State Department and collaborated with musicians in Ukraine, Mongolia, China, and Mexico. Glier has shared the bill with a diverse list of artists including Ronnie Spector, James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, & Glen Campbell.

As a producer, music director, or studio musician he has collaborated with Sophie B. Hawkins, Tom Rush, Antje Duvekot, Richard Shindell, Doctora Qingona, Dar Williams, Nick Carter, & Cyndi Lauper.

“For the last 15 years, I’ve been the music director for Sophie B. Hawkins,” said Glier.

Glier is a five-time Independent Music Award winner and received a Grammy nomination for his album, “The Next Right Thing.” With a commitment to using songwriting as a tool for positive change, he has written with the students in Parkland, FL for the “Parkland Project,” worked with ChildFund International and Rock The Vote.

He has also cowritten with soldiers at Walter Reed Army Hospital and is an advocate for autism awareness citing his autistic brother Jamie as his greatest non-musical musical influence. The Massachusetts native has also been a TEDx Speaker.

One of Glier’s other connections with nature is his affinity for birds which was on display in his album prior to “The Coronation” – “Birds.”

“Birds,” which was released in 2017, is an album for the birds, inspired by birds and made with the help of birds.

Glier recorded “Birds” in an airy loft in western Massachusetts outfitted with a grand piano and floor-to-ceiling windows. Birds roost just outside those windows, on the roof of the converted mill building where he lives, and they became his sympathetic audience while Glier made the album.

“I got a lot of comfort talking to the birds outside my window,” said Glier. “I’d talk to them frequently to see how they thought things were going with the music.

“We communicated well. It was definitely spiritual to make that kind of connection. That was the catalyst that got me into writing these songs.”

It was the death of his brother and the relationship they had that provided the focus for the songs.

“There were a lot of intense moments – first birthday without my brother, first Thanksgiving without my brother,” said Glier. “That was also calling me to stay close to home and use an insular environment to pour emotions into my writing.

“My brother was born with autism and had seizure disorders. He was in the hospital for six weeks at the end. We were very close.

“He was my greatest non-musical influence. He was non-verbal. When we were growing up, I had to get up and give him breakfast. He taught me new ways of communication without words. That’s why I can communicate so well with the birds.”

The birds will not join him on his trip south this week, but he will be joined by Dina Hall.

“My live shows start with a local non-profit person talking,” said Glier. “Then, I’ll play ‘Everything’ front-to-finish followed by a set of older songs.

“With ‘Everything,’ I’m putting out each of the album’s songs – one each month up until its release in January. There will be a video for every song and two live videos for each. Each song features a different climate solution accompanied by storytelling.”

The show at the Sellersville Theater on October 13 will start at

Tickets are $39.50.

Other upcoming acts at the Sellersville Theater are Edwin McCain on October 12, Coco Montoya on October 14, The Fifth Dimension on October 15 and Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra on October 18.

Another top-flight show on October 13 will be Bre Kennedy at World Café Live (3025 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, www.worldcafelive.com).

Kennedy’s upcoming sophomore album, “Scream Over Everything,” is scheduled to be released on November 10.

A few years ago, COVID forced Kennedy to alter her plans.

“I did have a lot of songs written and I planned to tour in 2020,” said Kennedy, during a phone interview this week from Columbus, Ohio.

Instead, 2020 was a shutdown and Kennedy worked on a new album with new songs – “Note to Self.”

“All the songs on the album were written during the pandemic,” said Kennedy. “The only one that wasn’t is ‘Wilburn Street,’ which I wrote the day before the lockdown. I thought that adding it would be a beacon of hope.

“I was writing about five or six songs a week. I probably wrote over 100 songs during the pandemic. When I chose the songs from the album, I didn’t want to be just writing about being depressed.

“There are threads on the album. A lot of songs were me processing things about my life and how I wanted to live post-pandemic – songs to celebrate the brighter side after all the darkness brought on by the pandemic.”

One thing on the “bright side” was that Nettwerk Music Group took an interest in Kennedy.

When COVID-19 struck, everything shut down as she was talking to labels.

According to Kennedy, “I was really discouraged. I just thought, the only thing I can do is keep creating.

So, she did. Like her previous work, she independently recorded and self-released “Note to Self,” her debut full-length.

Before the album came out, Kennedy received a message on Instagram. It was Terry McBride, one of the founders of Nettwerk Music Group. He’d discovered her through Spotify or another streaming service. Could she hop on a Zoom?

As they chatted, Kennedy mentioned she was in the middle of a tour. She wouldn’t make a decision until that ended. In the meantime, she requested the opinions of other musicians who’ve been with Nettwerk.

“Everybody said nothing but amazing things,” she said.

Kennedy believes one of the reasons Nettwerk pursued her is because the Canada-based label is focused on drawing attention to Nashville’s non-country scene.

“‘Note to Self’ was my first full-length and that’s what attracted interest from Nettwerk,” said Kennedy.

My new album is different. The previous stuff was nostalgic. This album is very much in the present time – allowing myself to be what I am now. It’s about mindfulness. It’s what I’ve been reading the last 10 years of my life.

“I recorded the album in Los Angeles last year with Davis Naish at his studio. We wrote together in the past for other artists in Nashville. So, I asked him to work on my record. We made the album over the course of a year – when I wasn’t on the road. There are nione songs on the album and we’ve released six of them as singles.”

Raised by her single dad in a highly musical household, Kennedy grew up jamming out to greats like Tom Petty, Heart and Aretha Franklin. At 17 she moved to Los Angeles, feeling in her gut that LA wasn’t where she was meant to be. In 2015, she hopped in her Nissan and drove to Nashville where she really discovered her true musical identity.

Waitressing by day and gigging at night, Kennedy was devoted to making her dream of a career in music a reality. Playing shows at prominent Nashville venues like The 5 Spot and The Basement, as her presence grew in the city’s music scene, she began releasing more of her own music and building residency.
After her buzzworthy hits like “Jealous of Birds” and “Twenty Something” landed her Spotify’s New Music Friday, many doors opened up. Opening for Sheryl Crow at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and selling out her first headlining show at historical landmark Exit/In, she cemented her spot as one of the new voices out of the New Nashville music scene.

Now, pandemic restrictions are a thing of the past and Kennedy is performing live with bright spirits and a sense of optimism.

“If I can make people laugh and get away from fear, then I’m pleased with what I’m doing,” said Kennedy.

The show at World Café Live on October

Tickets are $

On October 14, Ars Nova Workshop (www.arsnovaworkshop.org) will present improv jazz rock trio mssv featuring guitarist Mike Baggetta, drummer Stephen Hodges and punk legend bassist Mike Watt at Solar Myth (1131 South Broad Street, Philadelphia).

on Saturday, October 14. Ava Mendoza opens.

As a guitarist Baggetta has it all, from swinging modern bop chops that flow like John Abercrombie to whammy bar pedal steel licks influenced by his first guitar hero, David Torn. No less an authority than Nels Cline, the high priest of art-rock guitarists, has called him a “guitar poet.” In this raucous trio he’s joined by drummer Stephen Hodges (Tom Waits, Mavis Staples, David Lynch) and Minutemen bassist Mike Watt, whose wide-ranging career also spans work with Iggy Pop and the Stooges and fIREHOSE.

Baggetta and Watt recorded “Wall of Flowers” with drummer Jim Keltner, but Keltner was averse to travel so Hodges was brought in to tour the album. Hodges had previously worked with Watt on his second solo album, “Contemplating The Engine Room.”

The resulting trio named themselves mssv and recorded a live album entitled “Live Flowers.” The album, recorded live at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia on March 28, 2019, features songs from “Wall of Flowers” with “Pink Room” from “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me,” “No One Says Old Man (To The Old Man)” and “Liberty Calls!” from Watt’s “Contemplating the Engine Room” – and a cover of “Fun House” by The Stooges.

The music they create together is utterly unclassifiable; calling it post-genre-improv-jazz-rock may come close, but still doesn’t even begin to touch on the wild electric textures Baggetta’s guitar alone brings to the table. There’s no telling which way this heretofore unimagined hybrid of a punky power trio and a dreamy experimental rock band will turn at any given moment, a proposition that becomes a promise when they break down and reassemble these songs live with an instinct for restraint and an openness to anarchy.

The band’s most recent album, “Human Reaction,” was released September 1, 2023

Recorded mostly on May Day immediately following that last tour, “Human Reaction” traverses a deeply broad sonic landscape, as expected from this nearly unclassifiable group, though with even deeper twists and turns.

“Our Haru Tour was in spring 2022,” said Baggetta, during a phone interview Wednesday evening from a tour stop in Ithaca, New York.

“We played 48 shows in 48 days. On the 49th and 50th day, we recorded the new album.

“We divided the album’s songs into two groups and performed them in the middle of the set. We alternated sets. We had 24 chances to practice each group of songs.”
The album was produced and mixed by Chris Schlarb at BIG EGO studio in Long Beach, California. Recorded on May 1 and 2, it was engineered by Devin O’Brien and mastered by JJ Golden. All of the songs were written by Baggetta. Mssv stands for “Main Steam Safety Valve.”

“This tour is our Aki Tour and it started on September 5 in San Pedro, California (Watt’s hometown),” said Baggetta, a Massachusetts native who attended Rutgers University where he received his Bachelor of Music degree and Master of Music degree in Jazz Studies.

“The tour will last 58 days and on the 59th and 60th, we’ll go to BIG EGO to do our third album. On the tour, we’ll play half the album’s songs one night and the other half the next night. With playing this way, it allows the music to evolve and to be free.

“The music evolves a lot. I write specifically for Mike’s bass sound and Stephen’s drumming. I write the music, send it to them and then we practice. But there’s no better practice than playing in front of a live audience.

“There’s a lot of space in the songs the way we play them and the way it’s written into the song.”
