The Royz Duo Return
Heather Roy has a unique five octave vocal range and sings in a dizzying array of styles and genres. She sweeps from sultry jazz to crystal clear opera and Celtic, then puts on her powerhouse vocals for R&B, rock and all styles of dance music. She is also a dynamic percussionist – playing congas, bongos and a full stand-up percussion kit to give The Royz duo a unique sound.
Heather began her musical career at the age of 14 with regular performances on CBC TV in Montreal, Canada.
André Roy is one of a handful of 7-string guitarists – and a versatile vocalist.
Originally from Montréal, Canada André began performing and touring with recording artists while still in his early teens. He majored in music in Montreal before being awarded a prestigious Canada Council grant to further his music study at the renowned Berklee College Of Music in Boston.
Join us on Thursday, June 21st, at 7:30 p.m. as the Royz Duo treats us to another fantastic evening of music!
A fabulous performer and award-winning composer, listeners have called Gladius a miracle in the making!
Inspired by the great composers, Spanish guitar maestros, and much more, this musical mad scientist fuses the elements into a refreshing formula—evoking the Spanish spirit, yet distinctly unorthodox, mixing influences ranging from classical to rock. In an era when expertise and originality are often overlooked in lieu of fleeting flash and flare, Gladius defines innovation as a composer and mastery as an instrumentalist— perpetually pushing the boundaries.
Just a few short years ago, however, it appeared the guitarist’s career might have been finished before it ever started. A mysterious medical condition manifested its symptoms literally overnight. In 2005, while studying guitar at Georgia State University, the aspiring virtuoso suddenly suffered from a rather crippling case of nerve damage, greatly hindering the sensation and dexterity of both hands…
13 years, 4 surgeries, 10,000 hours of physical therapy, and countless prayers since neuropathy first plagued both wrists and elbows, Gladius persevered! Join us as we welcome this incredible young man to the Bay Village stage for the first time on Thursday, June 7th, at 7:30 p.m.! www.gladiusmusic.com to listen!

B.I.L.L. Series News
In June at 7:30 p.m in the auditorium we continue our series from The Teaching Company, “The American Wild West: History, Myth and Legacy,” the brutal conflict of cowboys and Indians. Dusty, dangerous outposts policed by vigilante justice. The six-shooter showdown at high noon. Daring railroad heists and arduous cattle drives. These and other scenes from countless Western films have so shaped our conception of the American West that it’s impossible to separate myth from reality. But how wild was the West? Was it really ever “won”? We are getting HUGE crowds for this topic, so we are glad you are enjoying!!
The course is taught by Professor Patrick Allitt, PhD, from Emory University.
We have two educational presentations from Adult & Community Enrichment. Our final “How Novel” book group meeting with Alice Blueglass is on June 5th at 10:00 a.m. in the board room. Beginning on Wednesday, June 13th, from 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. for six weeks, we have a new instructor for you, James Johnson, who will teach “Similarities and Differences Between Protestantism and Catholicism.” James Johnson began education for the Roman Catholic priesthood and eventually found his true vocation in teaching. He has fifteen years of experience in teaching religion at the college level and taught a variety of courses in religion at Pierian Spring Academy for seven years. He holds a B.A. in Philosophy and a S.T.B. (Master of Divinity) from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome.
Join us on Thursday, June 14th, at 7:30 p.m. for an evening of fun with Chucko!
Originally from Philadelphia, Chuck Sidlow began developing his distinctive talents at Atlantic City’s famous “Steel Pier”. He further honed his skills as a student at Clown College, where he was among the select few to receive a performance contract with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. His affiliation with Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey as a performer, manager, advance promotional ambassador and teacher at the Clown College took him around the continental United States, Canada, Mexico and to Japan, where he performed, among other things, an aerial comedy routine 50 feet above the arena floor. While in Japan, Chuck also served as an advance public relations ambassador and classic image of the “American-style live cartoon circus clown”.
This “All American” image soon caught the attention of one of the largest companies in Japan. They recruited him and Chucko remained there for 10 years and met pianist Noriko. They married and returned to the United States.
Among CHUCKO’s most notable accomplishments is the development of a social outreach program called “Laughter Unlimited”. with Circus Sarasota.
