Moffly Media Evenings of Art, Wine & Jazz SeriesBuy Tickets
Join us in the lobby at 7:15pm for an Italian wine tasting by Pera Wines and an art exhibit by Sphere’s Zachary Sorena!
Award-winning multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Brian Culbertson is known for his distinct brand of genre-crossing contemporary jazz, R&B and funk. He has worked and performed with countless industry all-stars such as Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Ledisi, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, Maurice White (EWF), Chuck Brown and Bootsy Collins just to name a few!
With love, romance and his recent twentieth wedding anniversary serving as his inspiration, Culbertson crafted thirteen new songs that will be released as “Colors of Love” on Valentine’s Day. The seduction begins with the first single, the amorous title track, which is a sensual R&B groove illuminated by lyrical acoustic piano melodies typical of the collection’s contents. A nearly three-month-long U.S. concert tour will bring “Colors of Love” to life in a vivid theatrical production with incorporating video elements!
In 2012, he founded the Napa Valley Jazz Getaway, a flourishing wine, music and lifestyle experience for which he also serves as artistic director.
Zach Sorena, a resident of Ridgefield, CT, has been a growing artist since his middle school days. Zach works primarily with markers and colored pencils, but has branched out into oils, acrylics, watercolors, charcoals and graphic illustration. He enjoys being a member of the Music and Performing Arts program at Sphere, whose mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals with developmental disabilities. When he’s not drawing or painting, Zach works at the Prospector Theater, where you can see him introduce the latest movies with enthusiasm and personality. You’ll see some of his drawings there too as he regularly draws the small billboard for the movies being shown. In addition, he volunteers at Walnut Hill Community Church and is a member of Ridgefield’s Special Olympics cycling and bowling teams.
Visit 850 Degrees Wood Fired Restaurant (424 R. Main Street ~ Ridgefield) for dinner before the show and enjoy a complimentary draft beer with purchase of an entree when you show your ticket!
