Student Abigail Wilson will present an afternoon of piano and vocal selections from classical and musical theatre repertoire. I will join her at the piano for her vocal selections. Vocalist Edain Campbell and pianist Bailey Ream will be guest musicians. The performance is free and open to the public.

Abbie has studied music privately since kindergarten, and is planning to study music in college. She has sung in the Mid-Ohio Valley Children’s Chorus, Guild Builders productions, Missoula Children’s Theatre productions, and Marietta College’s production of The Music Man. She is currently a collaborative pianist with the Smoot Theatre Young Men’s Ensemble. Her accolades include the WV Governor’s School for the Arts, first chair Alto II in the WVACDA All-State Chamber Choir, superiors in WVMEA Region V Solo & Ensemble, recommendations for the WVMEA State Recital, and First Class Honors in the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program.

Jess Baldwin Quartet

  • Adelphia Music Hall

The Jess Baldwin Quartet (feat. Andy Hall, Steve Heffner, and Ryan Kennedy) will present an evening of originals and unique covers at the beautiful Adelphia Music Hall in Marietta, Ohio. $7 in advance or at the door. Ages 21+ only. Click here for the Facebook event page. RSVP. Then share it.

Here's a sample of what you'll hear, recorded at our last Adelphia gig, July 2013:

House restaurant The Galley has some great dishes if you want to make an evening of it. My favorites are the veggie burger and the Pad Thai. If you like beer, they have a state-of-the-art individualized cooling system for their many taps. Personally, I love the Founder's Breakfast Stout. There's also the boutique-style Hackett Hotel above The Galley if you're coming from out-of-town. 

Can't wait to see you there!
