The Arts Council of Big Bear Valley is pleased to present “Music at the Mansion – MMX.IV. This is entertainment at its best, with up-close seating, wonderful music, and excellent dining following the show and to top it off with “easy on the pocket” prices.
The entertainment features Emily Dunn, an “up-and-coming” singer and “song-writer” who is recording her first CD of her own music. She has been singing, dancing and acting for over 10 years and she brings to the stage, enthusiasm and vitality to all that she does. She will be singing her own originals “Where Did My Fight Go” and “Won’t You Be Mine” which will be featured on her new CD. This is the time to hear new music and in the not so distant future to say, “I heard her when…”
Another great local entertainer is Nancy Celeste Walker. “Nancy just lights up the stage” is what countless audience members say who have seen her perform. Nancy Celeste Walker has impressed thousands with her captivating vocals from the White House to audiences of musical theater to film scores to the Los Angeles and Orange County music scene. Nancy sang for Bill and Hillary Clinton during the Christmas Holidays thanks to her Mother sending them a copy of her CD. Nancy states, “singing in the White House has been a highlight of her career”. Nancy has also performed locally with the Big Bear Performing Arts Center with “Divas”; “From Paris, With Love” and last October she did a Cabaret show of “funny songs” called “Isn’t It Funny” to sold out crowds.
Elaine Fitzpatrick, Dr. Tod Fitzpatrick will be singing songs from “Brigadoon,” “South Pacific,” “Showboat,” and an all time favorite “Phantom of the Opera”. Diane Sloan will be singing “I’ve got a Crush on You” and other pieces. Mike Cross is well known for his style with the keyboard, his fingers dance over the keys. Lisa Waner will be playing music by Phil Coulter and “Danny Boy” a traditional arrangement by Galway on the flute.
This event is held at the Knickerbocker Mansion at 3 PM Sunday September 12th and following the concert is a special dinner prepared by Chef Thomas, assisted by Robert, sous-chef. At the previous concerts the dinner guests have raved about the quality of the food and the diverse menu offered.
