Join us for the
20th Anniversary Gala & Concert


Heralded as “the next accordion star” by Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune, Julien Labro has established himself as one of the foremost accordion and bandoneón players in both the classical and jazz genres. Deemed to be “a triple threat: brilliant technician, poetic melodist and cunning arranger,” his artistry, virtuosity, and creativity as a musician, composer and arranger have earned him international acclaim and continue to astonish audiences worldwide.

The two-time GRAMMY-award winning Attacca Quartet is recognized and acclaimed as one of the most versatile and outstanding ensembles of the moment — a true quartet for modern times. Gliding through traditional classical repertoire through to electronic, video game music and contemporary collaborations, they are one of the world's most innovative and respected ensembles.


Part 1920s New Orleans, part 1930s Paris, the Hot Club of Reading combines Gypsy jazz with hot jazz to create an acoustic amalgam that really swings. Hot jazz is hot these days, and several Reading-area kindred musical spirits are seizing the moment. Guitarist Josh Taylor has teamed with his son Josiah on guitar, bassist Trey LaRue, Chris Heslop on sax, clarinet, and washboard, and jack-of-all-trades Ken Gehret to form a new ensemble called Hot Club of Reading.
