Venissa Santi

Venissa Santi began her career as a vocal instructor with the Asociación de Músicos Latino Americanos, better known as AMLA. Over time she performed with a variety of Latin, jazz and world music groups. It was from the support and encouragement of this community that inspired Venissa to embark on the first of four life changing visits to Cuba, where she conducted research and studied Afro Cuban song, dance and percussion.

Lewis Porter-Phil Scarff Group

New York-based pianist, composer, educator, and author Lewis Porter combines forces with saxophonist and composer Phil Scarff in this dynamic quartet. From jazz standards to contemporary treatments of traditional Indian classical fare, and from melodic originals to free-wheeling improvisation, East emerges from West and the audacious emerges from the contemplative.

“Lewis Porter… a helluva piano player.” - Jazz Times

“Indian classical music on the saxophone! Phil Scarff… played different ragas with finesse… enthralled the audience… subtle and appealing,” - Times of India

Thane Rosenbaum and Ruby Ray

Sunday, November 24, 2013 - 9:00pm

“All people long for justice, but we feel horrible when those who have created harm go unpunished”. We are of two minds about revenge: we talk about it and joke about it, enjoy movies about the hero seeking revenge, but feel conflicted about actually doing it ourselves. Our courts offer victims very little solace. Victims are rarely allowed to make statements in court and plea-bargaining subverts any possibility of the victim feeling like justice was served. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with Thane Rosenbaum.


Thursday, November 21, 2013 - 7:00pm

Songs from female artists and acts throughout the evening, with special guest Sandy Haddon!
