Tyne Daly to Lead DEAR WORLD in Concert at Valley Performing Arts Center

Now, Valley Performing Arts Center will kick-off the new season and its Broadway series on September 30 at 8:00pm with a one night only concert performance of Dear World, starring Tony and Emmy Award winner Tyne Daly in the role of Countess Aurelia. -- Broadway World

An Overdue Ovation for John Pisano

Today, Pisano’s principal creative outlet is the Guitar Night series, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this September. The performance series, in which Pisano is joined by a new guest guitarist every week (past visitors include Wilson, Peter Bernstein and Kenny Burrell), rotated through several homes before finding its current residence at Viva Cantina, which has now presented the event every Tuesday for over two years. Pisano admits that when he started Guitar Night, he had no idea it would be a two-decades-and-counting staple of the L.A. jazz scene. But he plans to keep it going as long as he’s still able to play, and he values the current venue because its no-drink-minimum policy allows admittance to Pisano’s students from California State University, Northridge, where he has taught guitar for the last 12 years. -- Jazz Times
