Bertoli and White,
back by popular demand!
Friday, October 18th, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.
Mauro Bertoli and Kevin White present an eclectic mix of music and narration. The narrations range from lighthearted, imaginative works to deeply romantic and sometimes grim, but always dramatic, legends. Interspersed with these narrations, Mauro Bertoli will heighten the ambiance with a dazzling array of piano solos by Erik Satie, Franz Liszt, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc, Robert Schumann and Richard Strauss.

Whether performing one of their original works or a masterpiece from classical and world music repertoire, Sonic Escape performs as though it's the last note they'll ever play for the best friend they'll ever make!
