The goal is to emerge from this three-day trip with offers out to nine actor-singers who are ready and willing to bring this story to vivid, three-dimensional life.Over the years that I’ve been developing this piece, I’ve had the privilege of seeing these roles played by many different casts.
Known for their eclectic mix of musical influences from ethereal chamber pop to guitar driven alt-rock along with high-energy live shows, they built a grass-roots following of devoted fans across the country.
After over a decade of touring and recording they announced an indefinite hiatus in 2005.
Cynthia Yih Shih (born October 3, 1978, Saratoga, California), better known by her stage name Vienna Teng, is a Taiwanese-American pianist and singer-songwriter based in Detroit, Michigan.
Teng has released five studio albums: Waking Hour (2002), Warm Strangers (2004), Dreaming Through the Noise (2006), Inland Territory (2009) and Aims (2013).
I’ve borne witness to several transcendent Sids, fierce yet vulnerable Rainas, devoted Andys, fabulous Delilahs, oily Sams, wacky Claras, etc…
Each performer brings something different, so in seeing a new actor in a role, I get to meet a new version of the character.Phil Marshall, Mike Quillen, Jeff Bush and Travis Moddison.But while the “Little Team from Oregon” you see today grew from those modest 2007 roots, our prior chapters tell a larger tale of drum corps in Oregon, dating back to 1971.Since then the members have focused their energy on pursuing new and exciting projects: Jay Clifford: Jay released two solo records (Driving Blind - 2007, Silver Tomb for the Kingfisher - 2012) and founded his own studio, Hello Telescope, where he has produced records for artists such as Heather Nova and William Fitzsimmons.Jay has also collaborated with the Colorado Symphony orchestrating for artists like Ingrid Michaelson, Amos Lee and Ariel Pink for their Red Rocks concert series.She has also released one live album, The Moment Always Vanishing (2009), on which she is double-billed with her percussionist, Alex Wong.
