Through the work of our own celebrity flutist Carol Alban, in partnership with The New Rheem Theatre, there is already a star-studded cast, including: jazz legend Roger Glenn who played with Dizzy Gillespie, Cal Tjader, and Mongo Santamaria, Mark Levine on bass who toured with Barry Manilow, keyboardist Victoria Theodore who played with Stevie Wonder, and lastly Frank Martin who performed with Sting, Andrea Bocelli, and Al Jarreau.
