Chanukah may be over early this year, but bright lights will still be shining at
Main Line Reform Temple we welcome Andrea Clearfield and a Salon Extraordinaire!
The internationally celebrated Miss Clearfield, who brings her Salons from Paris to Padua to St. Petersburg,
returns once more to Main Line Reform Temple with six outstanding offerings,
and the entire event is FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ($10 donation appreciated but not expected).
Our lineup includes Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions Winner and Regional Finalist Melissa Shippen,
famed pianist Yu Xi Wang of the Curtis Institute of Music, marvelous cabaret singer cum comedienne Karen Gross,
brilliant Brazilian musicians Minas, and singer/songwriter Alexandra Day. We are also pleased to welcome back
singer Phyllis Chapell, guest vocalist with The Hot Club of Philadelphia, a gypsy jazz group led by Barry Wahrhaftig.
Our Salon will begin with concert pianist Tania Stavreva playing our Steinway Grand,
on which Samuel Barber taught during his Curtis years.
Come for an afternoon of great music and great camaraderie,
and meet our wonderful artists during intermission!
