First "Matinée Enchantée" of 2012 on Saturday, January 28th
To celebrate their first anniversary at the Thatcher-Young Mansion, magician Richard Hatch, violinist Rosemary Hatch and pianist Jonathan Hatch have scheduled a special performance at the Mansion on Saturday, January 28, 2012 at 2 p.m.
The January 28th performance will feature favorites from this past year's programs, such as "The Music Box of Anna Eva Fay," which made its debut at the Mansion in August and "The Ink of the Enamored", an effect conceived by the great Viennese conjurer, Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser (1806-1875). Punx's "Heart of Glass", accompanied by Saint-Saens' "The Swan" and Dai Vernon's "Symphony of the Rings" accompanied by Fritz Kreisler's "Tambourin Chinois" are also among the pieces to be included on the program. Musical selections, both solo pieces and performed simultaneously with the magic, by Bach, Bartok, Miyagi and others will again be part of the afternoon performance.
Tickets are $10 for adults, just $8 for children under 12. As only 56 seats are available and this performance will be part of the weekend's Winterfest activities, advance purchase is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. Tickets may be purchased online at the Hatch Academy website www.HatchAcademy.com or by calling 435-932-0017.
