Apex Theatre Studio presents Disney’s “Freaky Friday”, a musical version of the beloved Disney family film classic live on stage at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.

When an uber-organized mother and her spontaneous teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right. Masquerading as each other, they must work together to solve the mystery of how to break the spell. By spending a day in each other’s shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another in a way they never could have imagined. In the end, both learn the true power of love and the strength of the bond between a mother and daughter in this heartfelt and hilarious adaptation.

Based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, “Freaky Friday” features a book by Bridget Carpenter – the co-executive producer and writer on the beloved TV hits, “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood” – and music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey – the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of Next to Normal.

Waltzing into disaster and its aftermath, The Milk Carton Kids’ brand new album, All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do was released in June 2018 to much praise.

The new project marks the first time that acoustic duo Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale have brought a band into the studio with them. “We wanted to do something new,” Pattengale says. “We had been going around the country yet another time to do the duo show, going to the places we’d been before. There arose some sort of need for change.”

Since their last studio album, Monterey, in 2015, life has changed dramatically for The Milk Carton Kids. Pattengale has moved to, and is now producing records in Nashville. Ryan is now the father of two children and works as a producer on “Live from Here with Chris Thile,” the reboot of “A Prairie Home Companion.” A break from years of non-stop touring, Ryan says, has yielded “space outside of the band that gives us perspective on what the band is.”

But it’s not just the addition of the band here that creates something new. National politics left Ryan feeling disoriented and mournful. Pattengale’s relationship of seven years ended, and he found himself unexpectedly needing surgery for cancer.

Though they didn’t approach the new album conceptually, a theme of shattered realities began to emerge out of the songs that sparked to life. Recent events provided a bruising background for the record, yet the project is somehow bigger than any personal grief. Two-part harmonies ride acoustic guitars high above the haunting landscape created by the presence of the band, as if Americana went searching for a lost America.

Produced by Joe Henry and engineered by Ryan Freeland, All the Things That I Did and All The Things That I Didn’t Do was recorded in October 2017 in the Sun Room at House of Blues Studio in Nashville. Musicians who joined them there included Brittany Haas on violin and mandolin, Paul Kowert and Dennis Crouch on bass, Jay Bellerose on drums, Levon Henry on clarinet and saxophone, Nat Smith on cello, Pat Sansone on piano, mellotron, and Hammond organ, Russ Pahl on pedal steel and other guitars and Lindsay Lou and Logan Ledger as additional singers. Mixed by Pattengale, the album was mastered by Kim Rosen

The Florida Chamber Music Project is proud to celebrate its sixth year of providing a wonderful repertoire of chamber music for the Northeast Florida region. Although performances by small groups of musicians date back several thousand years, chamber music as we know it today reached great heights beginning in the early 1600s and continues to thrive in popularity in the 21st century. Often described as music performed in an intimate setting by an ensemble of friends for an audience of friends; chamber music lives on today through our musicians providing enjoyment for listeners of all ages. One of the factors contributing to the unique nature of these performances is the rich repertoire featuring one musician on a part. Within each composition, the technical skills and musical expression of each player contributes to an intimate musical conversation among friends.

The 2018-2019 season features widely varied music for string quartet and the return of pianist Hyunsoon Whang, who will join FCMP for music by Schumann. Selections include quartets from Joseph Haydn to Grammy award winning Jennifer Higdon. The ensemble will also present an American concert featuring a quartet by Mark O’Connor and Dvorak’s “American Quartet”. The season concludes with Beethoven’s famous String Quartet Opus 59, No, 3. Join the Florida Chamber Music Project for a remarkable sixth season of the finest chamber music at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.

The complete 2018 – 2019 season is as follows:

September 30, 2018 Tragedy of Passion: La Oración del Torero, Turina; String Quartet in C minor, Opus 51, No. 1, Brahms

November 18, 2018 America: Matanzas Voices pre-concert talk; String Quartet No. 3, “Old Time”, O’Connor; String Quartet No. 12 in F major, “American”, Dvorak

January 13, 2019 Exaltation Larks: String Quartet in D Major, Haydn; An Exaltation of Larks, Higdon; String Quartet in D minor, K.421, Mozart

March 10, 2019 Arabesque, Widmung, Frühlingsnacht, and Piano Quartet in E flat major, Schumann with guest artist Hyunsoon Whang, piano

Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “beautiful countertenor,” Art Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel. He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being The Singer in 2012. In late 2017, he released an autobiography, “What Is It All But Luminous: Notes From An Underground Man” (Alfred A. Knopf).

Since then, he has been busy as a husband and father to his two sons, 27 year-old James and 12-year-old Beau Daniel.  He is also an avid walker who has walked across Japan, the US, which was celebrated in the 1997 concert DVD Across America, and now Europe.

Garfunkel was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC native Paul Simon. Their greatest hits collection, which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound Of Silence,” “The Boxer” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” among others, is one of the biggest selling album ever.

After Simon & Garfunkel parted ways in 1970, Garfunkel landed several major film roles, including Carnal Knowledge, opposite Jack Nicholson, Catch 22 and Nicholas Roeg’s Bad Timing: A Sensual Obsession.

His solo debut Angel Clare spawned the top 10 hit “All I Know.” His other solo albums include Breakaway (1975) featuring the hit “I Only Have Eyes For You”, Watermark (1978) featuring “[What A] Wonderful World” with James Taylor and Paul Simon, Fate for Breakfast (1979), Scissors Cut (1981), The Animals’ Christmas (1986), Lefty (1988), Garfunkel (greatest hits, 1988), Up Till Now (1993), Across America (1997), Songs From A Parent to A Child (1997), Everything Waits to be Noticed (2003), Some Enchanted Evening (2007) and The Singer (2012).

The late ‘80s brought two new challenges for Garfunkel: he published “Still Water”, a collection of poetry in 1989, and began an amazing trek across America–on foot.  But the ‘80s and ‘90s found Garfunkel doing what he does best: singing for an audience.

“Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” says Garfunkel, who relishes the opportunity to perform new and classic material for fans around the world.  “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job.  I try to soothe, to lift…That’s my life.”

Garfunkel earned his Bachelor of Arts degree at Columbia College, majoring in Art History; later he earned his Master’s degree in Architecture at Columbia University.  He lives in New York City with his wife Kim. An avid reader, Garfunkel has chronicled every book he’s read since June 1968 on his website–-1,246 in all.

Soul pop group Lake Street Dive has rescheduled their Ponte Vedra Concert Hall performance for Wednesday, June 5, 2019. Lake Street Dive’s original performance scheduled for Tuesday, January 15 was postponed due to illness. Please note, tickets for the original January 15 date will be honored for the new June 5 date.

Lake Street Dive is currently on tour in support of their latest release, Free Yourself UpFree Yourself Up is both an exhortation to listeners and a statement of purpose for the band. The songs have an infectious swagger, even when dealing with awkward breakups or the unsettled state of our world. Free Yourself Up is Lake Street Dive’s most confident album yet, seriously soulful and exuberantly rocking. The sound is influenced by late sixties-early seventies R&B, AM pop, and FM rock while the lyrics are informed more by contemporary events.

Lake Street Dive was for many years a self-reliant unit. After forming in 2004, while members (Bridget Kearney, Mike Olson, Mike Calabrese and Rachael Price) were studying at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, they assiduously built a following through a series of independent album releases, countless club tours, and a few lucky breaks. In 2013, producer T Bone Burnett invited them to join a star-studded lineup at a New York City concert where they practically stole the show—and wound up with a deal from Nonesuch Records. The band’s label debut, Side Pony, was greeted with raves. The Boston Globe said, “Side Pony is a confident, expertly played statement from a band that’s been honing its approach for more than a decade, and it clearly shows that Lake Street Dive is ready to make itself known to whatever audiences have yet to succumb to its many charms.”

The gentlemen comprising the Brooklyn-based five-piece The Rad Trads distinguish themselves in ways few bands can. Already drawing lines around the block at home, the globe-trotting group’s singular take on rock n roll mixes punk rock energy, horn drenched soul, and jazz precision, all with a lighthearted but sincere delivery. It’s a sound and show that is gaining steam world over as The Rad Trads continue to tour in support of On Tap, out now from Hornblow Recordings.

Tickets for Lake Street Dive live on Wednesday, June 5 are on sale now and are available for purchase at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre Box Offices, ticketmaster.com and by phone at (800) 745-3000. Tickets for the original Tuesday, January 15 date will be honored for the new June 5 date. No new ticket purchase needed. For those that cannot attend the new June 5 date and wish to return their tickets for a refund immediately, ticket refunds will be issued at point of purchase now until June 4. Tickets purchased at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre or Ponte Vedra Concert Hall Box Offices will be refunded at the Box Offices. Patrons that purchased tickets online or by phone via TicketMaster must contact TicketMaster for refunds.  TicketMaster may be reached at (800) 745-3000.

Hippo Campus is a band from St. Paul, Minnesota. Formed in 2013, prior to graduating from performing arts high school, the band started on a break out trajectory following a series of talked-about performances at SXSW. This was immediately followed by their network television debut on Conan. They’ve since risen to the forefront of their genre on the backs of relentless touring and the strength of their debut album landmark.

In October 2017, the band released their self-produced EP warm glow as an ode to loyalty and self-preservation. “We had tunes that didn’t fit on landmark that took on a life of their own. The project became about the support we couldn’t find as individuals but discovered as an entity. The band’s sophomore release, Bambi was released in September of 2018.

VIP ticket package available which includes a concert ticket with early entry access, pre-show performance, exclusive signed poster, and meet and greet with Hippo Campus!
