2015 Season

  • Cherry Valley native Vanessa Bley returns to town this Thursday with her indie-rock band Beast Patrol at the Star Theater. Last year, her Jazz band, Twin Danger performed and the plan was to return again this week in celebration of their album release, but due to unforeseen circumstances, Twin Danger will not be performing this Thursday, July 16th at the Star Theater. Instead, we will hear Beast Patrol, who have played festivals and shows all over the country, yet never have made it to Cherry Valley. They will be playing music off their last album Unarm Yourself and brand new music from their album dropping this fall! Here's what Rolling Stone has said about Beast Patrol.

    Rolling Stone's "Band to Watch"
    It’s not every day that you stumble across a world-class rock band playing in a park and using bicycle pedals to power their amplifiers. This unusual way to get loud has proven to be the right path as Beast Patrol emerged from the street and onto the stages of packed East Coast clubs. The alt-rockers have a clear nod to the past while using their influences to craft a vibe that draws from clever bass lines and luscious vocals. Look out for them on tour and at major US festivals.

    Here's a Music Video of the band performing "Plaster"
  • "A funny, dark, delicious and erotically charged power game". directed by Mary Fralick
  • The Fenimore String Quartet, led by violinist and Glimmerglass Festival Orchestra concertmaster Ruotao Mao, had their first performance at The Star Theater and have returned to great acclaim every season since. The quartet also features Sue Rabat, violin, DeeDee Fancher, viola and Ruth Berry, cello.
  • Expect the unexpected from this concert that has brought everything from tuba solos to full orchestral performances to the stage of The Star. Opera, jazz, chamber music, Broadway tunes are all on the menu.
  • A special treat from the much loved klezmer group. This year's program will be the debut of "The Tale of Monish" written by Sasha Margolies. A theater piece in the style of L'Histoire de Soldat" the music encompasses Klezmer and tango, with hints of Shostakovich, Debussy, Bartok and Xavier Cugat.
  • Rockin' blues spiced with funky grooves, shuffle beats and rock intensity. Spiros is a regular at B.B. King's Blues Club in Manhattan and is followed by fans from New York to Europe.
