An Evening for a Child 2021
From early childhood, Luke was drawn to music, and his mastery of the art swiftly grew far beyond his years. Steeped in jazz/pop/classical influenced improvisation, this high school freshman’s instrumentals on the piano bob and weave through complex harmonies and melodies that will replay in your mind long after the performance is done.
Rick brings his renowned bluegrass expertise to the show with fiery guitar playing and powerful vocals — fresh off recording his first solo album with the new single “Deep River,” released March 30. After 11 years of touring with the two-time Grammy-nominated band Special Consensus, we’re privileged to be a stop on Rick’s new creative journey.
Topeka’s Chief of Staff Bill Cochran and Fire Chief Craig Duke battle it out in a comedic competition of who’s “bad” joke is better. Hilarity ensues as they present their best (worst?) jokes to referee Maxwell Guth, one of our children receiving pediatric therapy at Capper Foundation. Who will make our referee and audience laugh more? Tune in to find out, but be prepared to laugh-cry.
