Kellar’s Modern Magic and Comedy Club presents Chipper Lowell

Award-winning comedian & magician, Chipper Lowell, has been described as an “artistic cyclone of talent and comedy” by the press. The red head’s best known “skills” can usually be found onstage, doling out witty remarks, presenting bizarre feats of original magic, ad-libbing with audience members who can’t stop laughing, attempting pointless juggling stunts, pulling a seemingly endless barrage of unusual thing-a-ma-bobs and gadgets out of his prop trunks, and in short, creating a wonderful evening of high-energy laughs and amazement for all those in attendance. (How’s THAT for a run-on sentence? You’re welcome!) For over 20 years, Chipper has been bringing his odd brand of infectiously amusing mayhem to audiences around the world at performing arts centers, theaters, cruise ships, casino showrooms and corporate events. His tours have taking him throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Mexico. All of this led to Chipper popping up on TV here and there in such shows as The Tonight Show, Disney Channel Preview Special, Don’t Blink!, Empty Nest, Show Me The Funny!, Street Magic, General Hospital, The (Jerry Lewis) MDA Telethon, America’s Funniest People!, and multiple guest-starring spots on all EIGHT seasons of Masters Of Illusion on the CW network. He has also had acting roles and cameo appearances in feature films including My Life, SIX, Larger Than Life, and Time Changer. This show will take place on January 21 & 22 at 7 p.m. and on January 23 at 12:30 p.m. with a show for both adults and children. For more information on this show or to purchase tickets, check out Kellar’s website or call 814-461-0911.

Warner Grand Re-Opening and Erie Phil Concert Featuring Emmanuel Ax

Legendary pianist Emanuel Ax joins the Erie Philharmonic in a concert for the ages, celebrating the long awaited return to the Warner Theatre. The Philharmonic hopes to harness enthusiasm in a brilliant opening work by American Composer Christopher Rouse. With its kaleidoscopic colors built into a slowly-growing emotional surge, Rouse depicts ‘a progression to an ever more blinding ecstasy.’

World-renown pianist Emanuel Ax made his Philharmonic debut in 2017. With a newly-delivered Steinway grand piano waiting in the wings, we could think of none other who could best help us reopen the Warner in grand style. Ax has chosen Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2, a near-perfect combination of rhapsodic romanticism and sinuously-drawn melodies. Chopin’s concerto brims with his youthful creativity, complete with a Viennese waltz and Polish mazurka finale.

As for famous finales, Stravinsky’s Firebird certainly ranks among the most memorable, with blazing brass in a hymn-like chorus. This Russian fairytale comes to life on the stage in a score that challenges the mettle of any expert symphonic ensemble, and we intend to rise to the challenge on opening night. This event will take place on January 23 at 3 p.m. For more information on this event please call 814-455-1375 or visit their website.
