It’s a pleasure to have back that rascal of the blues: Ms. Cheryl Arena. A great vocalist and harpist, she’s sure to have you shakin’ your tootsies all over the dance floor. We weren’t sure she was gonna make it, since she accidentally overdosed on Polish Fly last week and nearly broke her arm bowling. However, rest assured, all is well in bloozeland and we got the band to prove it. She’s bringing along Pete Henderson on guitar. Pete’s a real treasure and hasn’t been here in a long time. He’s killer! Forrest Padgett handles eggbeater duties, and I, Salmon Dave Sag provide cosmic relief.

And Friday night I’ll be down to Guiseppe’s eating pizza with Orville Giddings and who knows who else. But I think Marque Earley and Steve Chaggaris are the great unknowns. We’re gonna have a 120 volt contest, see who can last the longest. Free sparring partner for any of you over the age of 50! Seeya there!

SELL-OUT ALERT: CASPIAN’S Pre-Sale nearly sold out in 1 day — if you want tickets get them now

You may or may not know that major rock stars live right down the road in Beverly, MA.  CASPIAN, performed at Beverly’s Block Party last year, but mostly they tour the world.  On October 18, they’re celebrating their 10th year as a band with a special hometown anniversary concert at The Larcom Theatre.  Yesterday at noon, they offered pre-sale tickets to their fan-base, who turn out to be highly loyal — meaning the show is nearly sold out barely 24 hours later (most of the orchestra was sold out within an hour).  That’s what I mean when I say, “rock stars.”  So if you want to go to this once-in-a-decade event, get balcony seats now (right here).

Tonight! DAVE SAG’S BLUES PARTY WITH SPECIAL GUEST: Evan Goodrow 8:30 to 11:30pm @ The Rhumb Line. 8.14.2014

Cem Oslu, Turkish pianist, Concert at Annisquam Village Church – Sunday 8/17/14

Cem Oslu, Turkish pianist,  Concert at Annisquam Village Church – Sunday 8/17/14

Cem+Oslu_portraitWHAT:  Piano classics, and original compositions by Turkish prodigy, Cem Oslu
WHERE:  Annisquam Village Church, 820 Washington Street, Gloucester
WHEN:  Sunday, August 17, 7:30 PM  
TICKETS: At the door only $15 / $10. Students 
INFORMATION:  978.283.6416 or 978.281.0376

Hard on the heels of a brilliant stint as Music Director of the Annisquam Village Players’ production of “Peter Pan,” 21-year-old Turkish pianist Cem Oslu turns his talents to a mostly classical concert at the Annisquam Village Church, Sunday, August 17. Pushing the ivories in another direction is nothing new for this young prodigy. Born in 1992 in Adana, Turkey, Oslu started his music education with piano lessons at age 12.  In only a year, he had won a full scholarship to Bilkent University’s Faculty of Music and Performing Arts where, for five years, he had the opportunity to study with Sanem Berkalp, Hande Dalkilic, Karl-Andreas Kolly, Oxana Yablonskaya, Edna Golandsky and Olga Kern.

In 2009, Oslu was awarded Third Prize in the Kamuran Gundemir Piano Competition, and later that year performed the Grieg Piano Concerto in A Minor with the Bilkent Sypmhonic Orchestra (the Turkish “BSO,” in Ankara), conducted by Isin Metin. He was also invited to perform in the 10th Antalya International Piano Competition and at the Musica Mundi International Chamber Music Festival in Belgium. In 2010, he performed Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.1 with the Bursa Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ahmet Taviloglu. Later that year he was accepted to Vienna Conservatory where he studied for two years.

At Berklee College of Music, Oslu’s concentration has been Film Scoring and Electronic Production & Design.  In 2013 he was awarded First Prize in the MTNA (Music Teacher’s National Association) Compositions Competition on both state and regional levels, and Second Prize at the national level.

Oslu moves to Los Angeles in September, with film work in his sights. Terry Sands, Director of the Annisquam Village Players, says, “Peter Pan might have stayed a boy forever…but Cem Oslu has already hit 21, and we’re going to say ‘We heard him when…’ He’s got a great future ahead of him, and we were lucky to get such a talent for our play. This concert will be cream on the top!”

The concert will include piano music of Bach, Chopin, Schumann, and Scriabin.  Oslu promises to play a bit of Turkish music on the harpsichord (with its buff stop imitating the sound of the oud!), and a composition of his own, as well. The historic Annisquam Village Church is at 820 Washington Street in Gloucester (corner of Washington and Leonard Streets). General admission is at the door only: $15. / Students $10.  One performance: Sunday, August 17.
