It’s our 6th Annual Thanksgiving Show featuring 2 of the most talented musical artists in Central New York!

Dusty Pas’cal is a husband, father to five children, and co-owner of his family’s company, Skaneateles-based D.B. Pascal Chimney and Roofing. He’s considered by many to be one of the top singer/songwriters in the Central New York region.

Dusty said that since he first picked up a guitar at age 13, he’s been a firm believer in the purity of his music. ?”Early on, I was influenced by guys like Kris Kristofferson and Jim Croce, because that’s who my dad listened to,” he said. ?”But actually, I was most influenced by my dad, who’s a songwriter himself.?”

“Lonesome,? is a heartbreaking ballad that includes lyrics written by Dusty’s father. “My dad came to one of my shows, and I could see him just sitting there writing something,” he recalled.  Dusty’s dad was in fact writing a poem about a friend of his who was on death’s doorstep, so Dusty set the poem, without changing a single word, to music.  “I know my dad so well, it just flowed out naturally.”

His three studio albums, Home (2006), More (2008), andHuman Heart (2012) have garnered attention in Central New York and across the nation; several tracks have been featured on local radio stations and internationally on XM Satellite Radio.

Dusty will move you from one end of music’s emotional spectrum to the other – and it will be a ride you’ll want to take again and again.

Loren Barrigar started playing guitar when he was only 4 years old, and by the time he was 6, he played the Chet Atkins hit “Yackety Axe” in front of thousands of country music fans at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. He went on to study with Jimmy Atkins (Chet’s brother) which led to a touring career with his family band from Nashville to Las Vegas. Since settling in Central New York he has been in constant demand as a studio musician and recently produced and played on the #1 rated CD in Syracuse, Dusty Pascal’s “Home” 2007.

His finely-honed songwriting skills have launched his melodies on NBC’s #1 rated show “ER,” “The Young and The Restless,” and on a Christmas CD with BB King and Patti Labelle. He has recently performed with some of the best acoustic players in the world including Stephen Bennett, Richard Smith, John Knowles, Muriel Anderson and Loren’s friend and mentor Tommy Emmanuel the Australian guitar sensation. He has also recorded with Multiple Grammy winner and legendary producer Lloyd Maines.

In 2010 Loren made a guest appearance at The Chet Atkins Appreciation Society {CAAS} in Nashville with his pickin’ pal from New Zealand Mark Mazengarb. They will be there again in 2011 . For the last few years Loren has been working on fingerstyle guitar. His recently released CD “Dance With Me” is a result of that work, and it received a SAMMY Award for Best Country CD.{2009} He is now touring in support of his 2nd solo CD Chillaxin’. His solo concerts include favorite songs from 7 decades as well as his originals all featuring exciting guitar work and memorable vocal stylings.

“Beauty can only be seen by your heart….. Not your eyes.” ~ David Garibaldi

This is a co-production between Auburn Public Theater and Cayuga Community College  

Artists transform an empty canvas into a work of art through their skill, experience, inspiration and senses.  David Garibaldi’s life and transition into a world-renowned performance painter is no different.

The culture and color of graffiti art served as an early inspiration for Garibaldi. Born in Los Angles, he later moved as a youth to South Sacramento. It was here that he learned to enjoy the use of his hands and body through art on “larger and somewhat illegal canvases” by painting graffiti as an angst teen. Graffiti artist and high school dropout, he was living day-by-day. The only constants in his life were music and art.

Garibaldi had always combined his passion for music and color, or rhythm and hue, in his artwork. But it wasn’t until viewing performance painter Denny Dent’s portrait of Jimi Hendrix that Garibaldi discovered how his passion for paint and music could be an inspirational experience for more than just himself. He discovered music-driven-art, and in some ways it discovered him, revealing a portrait of passion and purpose.

Come in costume for the Halloween performance!

Music by Brian and Erin Schey

Book and Lyrics by Thom Bishop

Blood and murder set the stage this Halloween as The Palace Theater presents One October Midnight: A New Musical Thriller. Based on the grotesque, horrific and heart-wrenching tales of Edgar Allan Poe this whodunit murder mystery musical promises a night of suspense, terror and lost love.

Follow 1940’s gumshoe Inspector Wilson on his manic chase through the haunted streets of Baltimore to capture the infamous October 9th Serial Killer. With songs inspired by Poe’s poems and short stories such as The Bells, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Fall of the House of Usher, this new musical explores the supernatural hallucinations brought on by the killer’s steady decent into madness.

One October Midnight was first presented to sold out crowds in June 2013 as part of The Finger Lakes Musical Theater Festival’s new musical series, The PiTCH. Musically inspired by the preludes and nocturnes of Chopin and Rachmaninoff, One October Midnight brings the pit orchestra to the stage as cast members accompany one another on flute, baritone sax and organ. Original graphic novel-style projections by Montreal-based artist Lateef Martin, drop the audience clues along the way.

Book and music by Skaneateles native Erin (Humphrey) Schey and Brian Schey, with book and lyrics by Thom Bishop. Starring Josh Wilmot as Inspector Wilson and Meghan Jo Clary as Sergeant Munson and featuring Jackie Aberi (Skaneateles High School) , Lillian Boberg (Auburn High School), Mike Clark (Marcellus High School), Steve Condie, Ricky Ducane (AHS), Stephanie Figer, Morgan McIlvain (AHS), Nikki Schwarz, Alex Spear (SHS), Ryan Terhune (SHS) and Caitlin Wilmot.
