The Bucks County Performing Arts Society presents a special 40th Anniversary event on Saturday, March 3, 2018 featuring Yardley’s own Avi Wisnia and his dynamic ensemble at the Yardley Community Centre; Doors open at 7pm for 7:30 show; BCPAC is committed to enriching the cultural life of the community through performing art’s power to communicate and inspire, educate and entertain.
Acclaimed singer/songwriter and Bucks County native Avi Wisnia presents an eclectic mix of refreshingly original songs and inventive covers, finding inspiration in Brazilian bossa nova, acoustic American folk, 1950’s west-coast jazz, and contemporary pop. Avi’s clever lyrics give a knowing nod to his contemporaries, while his smooth vocals and deft piano skills assure you that this is truly something new. Avi tours in support of his debut album, Something New, performing in prestigious venues around the world – from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City to The Kennedy Center in Washington DC to concerts in Warsaw, Poland and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His latest single “Sky Blue Sky” was recorded via satellite between Philadelphia and Brazil, winning recognition from the Philadelphia Songwriters Project and MidAtlantic Songwriters Competition. He is also the winner of Bucks Happening Magazine’s 2017 Musician of the Year. In addition to being a performing songwriter, Avi Wisnia has also given a TED talk about “The Nature and Nurture of Bossa Nova” and performed with The Moth storytellers.
