Part of the evening’s festivities will feature a magical performance by our feature Performer, Master Illusionist Michael Cantori.
Michael will also be performing a Matinee at the
Star Theatre, 2PM. Saturday November 9, 2019
Michael Cantori is one of the region’s premier illusionists, whose wondrous entertainment astounds and amuses all ages. Highly-skilled, personable and unique, his repertoire includes an audience-interactive blend of visual magic, superb sleight-of-hand, mental mysteries, magical lore, and a quick wit. He’s entertained congressmen, senators, generals, rock stars and royalty, and has been featured in media such as The Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, Fox News, and The Washington Post.
Returning to Art & Elegance, will be the amazing Art Triumphant Dance Theater. Yvonne Slacedo and her dancers have promised to bring us “Under the Circus Tent” – something enchanting and magical to complement the evening’s entertainment.
We will also have the delightful and always impressive Mary Hott and her ensemble, the “Hott Thompson Project” for our listening and dancing pleasure.
We are thrilled to announce that our Featured Artists will be Mark Schwenk, of Frog Valley Artisans, photographer, and a master of artistic forged metal! Award winning Quilter Mary Roach, and Painter and Cat Lady, Tara Fly.
