Carnival of Joy! A Celebration of Hoagy Carmichael plus a special sneak peek of the 2020 touring program Swingtime in the Garden
Straight from New York City to Indy’s District Theatre Emily Asher‘s Garden Party Quartet brings a full, two-set program of freshly arranged tunes from the Hoagy Carmichael Songbook along with her new program: Swingtime in the Garden. The band delights audiences of all ages with Asher‘s tenacious trombone and sweet vocals, Mike Davis’s virtuosic trumpet playing, Rob Adkins swinging bass lines and Adam Moezinia’s Juilliard-honed guitar mastery.
Arrive early for a pre-concert "Hoagy Salon" discussion and Q&A led by the acclaimed jazz pianist, historian, and IU Senior Lecturer in Arts Administration Monika Herzig. Monika will share stories and more from her years long research into Bloomington's own, Hoagy Carmichael.
Join in to hear stories and songs from the Hoagy Carmichael Songbook as Emily and Monika bring Hoagy "back home again" to Indiana at The District Theatre.
