Boerne Performing Arts Society http://tpr.org en Prepare To Be Blown Away By The String Trio Coming To Boerne http://tpr.org/post/prepare-be-blown-away-string-trio-coming-boerne <p>The Boerne performing arts series continues on Tuesday and I caught up with one of the performers, Zachary De Pue from the band Time for Three, a band whose music is difficult to classify. De Pue said all the members attended the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia.</p><p>“And we met there and jammed together outside of our classical studies and training," he said. "Each one of us, in addition to classical music, had a background in different styles.”</p> Fri, 21 Mar 2014 17:57:39 +0000 Jack Morgan 28674 at http://tpr.org Prepare To Be Blown Away By The String Trio Coming To Boerne Canadian Dance Troupe Stepcrew Brings International Show To Boerne http://tpr.org/post/canadian-dance-troupe-stepcrew-brings-international-show-boerne <p>Dance troupe Stepcrew is coming to Boerne next week. You may remember the Riverdance phenomenon in the mid 1990s. A young Canadian man saw that and thought, "Wait! We’re already doing that!"</p><p>“When we grew up I didn’t even know Irish dancing existed," said Nathan Pilatzke, a dancer and founding member of Stepcrew. "We were just learning this dance which was from our area.”</p><p>But he said they’re not just another Riverdance.</p> Thu, 06 Feb 2014 17:16:03 +0000 Jack Morgan 26298 at http://tpr.org The Ten Tenors Bring Their Australian Swagger To Boerne http://tpr.org/post/ten-tenors-bring-their-australian-swagger-boerne <p>They’ve got a distinctive sound and maybe it’s because there are ten of them. Or maybe it’s that they’re Australian. &nbsp;</p><p>"We’re just about to start our brand new show, which is the Ten Tenors on Broadway," said the group's Touring Musical Director Paul Gelsumini.. He describes what they do.</p><p>"Ten Aussie guys having fun onstage, you know, we are notorious for a few dance moves every now and then," Gelsumini said.</p> Thu, 23 Jan 2014 23:19:32 +0000 Jack Morgan 25550 at http://tpr.org The Ten Tenors Bring Their Australian Swagger To Boerne Hear The 5 Browns Live In Boerne http://tpr.org/post/hear-5-browns-live-boerne <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">On Saturday, February </span>9 there<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> was a sold out crowd at the Boerne Performing Arts</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> presentation of The 5 Browns.
