Musical Duo: The Bergamot

Date: Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Time: 7:17pm

Location: SU Starbucks

The Bergamot has earned instant comparisons to the likings of Adele, Dave Matthews, with a little Michael Jackson thrown into the mix. Classically trained, Nathan Hoff is a multi-faceted artist, fulfilling an impressive array of roles from songwriting to engineering. On the other hand, Jillian Speece holds down the house with her crafty songwriting and powerfully beautiful vocals that will stop you dead in your tracks. Dynamite, fresh, fierce, and fun are just a few words that come to mind when talking about The Bergamot and it seems everyone is talking about The Bergamot these days.

The Bergamot calls their musical style “Organic Pop Music,” they describe their sound as a genre that “integrates catchy melodies and honest lyrics, with that throw-back non-processed sound we all grew up listening to.” In addition to their energetic sound, The Bergamot offers an intimate musical experience, too.

Tuesday Musical Presents The Vogler Quartet and Ute Lemper March 20
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Ute Lemper’s panache, versatility and sophisticated repertoire have led her to international acclaim. With this brand-new project she delves even deeper into the glamour of Old World Europe. Crossing national and stylistic boundaries alike, the program features quartets by Schulhoff and Ravel as well as songs by Weill, Eisler, Piaf, Brel and Piazzolla. Berlin’s Vogler Quartet — long recognized as one of the world’s leading chamber groups — and pianist/clarinetist/composer Stefan Malzew will back the sublime and sultry Lemper in this unique production. Classical repertoire influenced by non-classical elements such as tango and jazz will give way to a celebration of the timeless chansons of an era long past, but not forgotten.

The Chicago Tribune says, "The world of cabaret can be divided into two distinct categories: Ute Lemper and everyone else," while the UK's The Guardian praises the Vogler Quartet as "belong[ing] in the highest category of contemporary string quartets.
