July 29, 2011 - PRLog -- The monthly "Matinée Enchantée" performances at the Thatcher-Young Mansion ,  featuring deceptionist Richard Hatch, violinist Rosemary Hatch and their son, pianist Jonathan Hatch, will resume on August 13th, after a brief hiatus due to scheduling conflicts. "Rosemary teaches violin and coaches chamber music for six weeks each summer at Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan," reports Richard Hatch. "She really enjoys this annual opportunity to nurture the next generation of virtuosi, but Jonathan and I are looking forward to her return to Cache Valley in August!" Rosemary will resume her teaching of violin and viola students at her studio at the Hatch Academy of Magic and Music, on the second floor of the Thatcher-Young Mansion, the second week of August. Group and private magic classes have continued through the summer, in Hatch's magic studio on the third floor of the Mansion. However the last session of the year of Hatch's "How to be an Amazing Grandparent" group class will take place on Saturday, August 6th.

The family ensemble has taken advantage of the summer performance hiatus to work on new repertoire, some of which will debut at the August 13th performance. Among the new ensemble works are "The Ink of Enamored" by Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser and "The Music Box of Anna Eva Fay," inspired by the popular vaudeville medium of that name. Musical selections, both solo pieces and performed simultaneously with the magic,  by Bach, Beethoven, Kreisler, Miyagi and others will again be part of the afternoon performances.

Tickets are $10 for adults, just $7 for children under 12. As only 56 seats are available, advance purchase is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. The April, May and June performances did sell out. Tickets may be purchased online at the Hatch Academy website or by calling 435-932-0017.

Performer's biographies:

Richard Hatch holds two graduate degrees in Physics from Yale University, but finds it easier apparently to violate the laws of nature than to discover them. A childhood interest in magic became a lifelong obsession after he met and was encouraged by the German magician Fredo Raxon in 1970. A full time professional “deceptionist” since 1983, Richard moved with his wife, violinist Rosemary Kimura, to Houston, Texas in 1985, shortly after winning first place in the annual New England Close Up Magic Competition in Worcester, Massachusetts. For several years he honed his craft entertaining the guests as one of the house magicians at Houston's Magic Island Nightclub before devoting himself exclusively to private and corporate work, traveling internationally on behalf of his clients. Richard and his wife Rosemary moved to Cache valley last Fall and opened the Hatch Academy of Magic and Music in Logan's historic 1878 Thatcher-Young Mansion last January.

Rosemary Kimura Hatch received her Masters degree from Yale School of Music and her Bachelors Degree with Performer’s Certificate from Eastman School of Music. She has studied Chamber Music with the Fine Arts, Tokyo and Cleveland Quartets and with Raphael Hillyer. She has performed with the New Haven, Hartford, San Antonio and Houston Symphonies and with the Houston Grand Opera. Her principle private instructors have been Sergiu Luca, Syoko Aki, Peter Salaff, Charles Castleman and Martha Katz. As a teacher herself she has been on the faculty of Music Schools in New Haven, Milwaukee and Houston. She currently teaches privately at the Hatch Academy of Magic and Music in Logan and at Interlochen Summer Arts Camp in Michigan. She and Richard Hatch were married in 1982 and have two children, Catherine and Jonathan.

Jonathan Hatch has studied piano with Paul Krystofiak at St. Thomas University in Houston, Texas and with Sophia Gilmson at the University of Texas in Austin. He is currently studying piano privately with Hilary Coombs while simultaneously pursuing studies to become a Veterinary Technician. In his spare time, he volunteers at the Cache Valley Humane Society.
