Somewhere near the intersection of Norah Jones and Billie Holiday, you will find Philadelphia’s soulful and stylish singer, Maci Miller. Whether she’s interpreting the Great American Songbook or her own compositions, Maci captivates and entertains audiences around the globe with her unique vocal blend of jazz, pop, and blues.
With his velvet “intoxicating” lyrical-dramatic baritone enhanced by a wide vocal range and handsome, masculine appearance of a romantic “macho,” David Gvinianidze embodies the diverse parts of the opera house stage of both heroic and lyrical style. His concert repertoire consists of hundreds of arias from the world opera classics and romances by world-renowned composers.
Glen Foerd stewards an eclectic riverfront estate for the enjoyment and educational benefit of the community. Drawing from the estate’s architecture, art, material culture, and history—as well as its gardens and waterways—Glen Foerd provides inclusive experiences that spark curiosity and support Philadelphia’s natural and cultural ecosystems.
