Live music by Betty Roi and her Kingtette

Authentic Parisian chanteuse Betty Roi and Her Kingtette will present a collection of popular French songs from the 1930–1960s. These songs evoke feelings and memories of Paris, love, longing, and happiness. Some were made famous by singers like Edith Piaf, Josephine Baker, Charles Trenet, and Yves Montand. The performance will also include beloved jazz standards. David Udolf, piano; Jeremy Cohen, violin; Bill Velasco, drums; Chuck Bennett, bass; Rich Khuns, accordion; Betty Roi, vocals. The music transcends boundaries of french cabaret, latin and jazz standards.



Hands-on art making for the entire family is offered every Friday Night. Meet our museum artists and create your own piece of art to take home. In honor of the "king of Cubism," construct and decorate your own cubist crown!
