Live Music:  Daniel Pearson & Peter Yarin
Dan Pearson:
Saxophonist and woodwind specialist Dan Pearson was born and currently lives in NYC but has spent much of his professional life traveling the world.  Either on stage or in an orchestra pit there aren't many theaters in the US and increasingly in the rest of the world that Dan has not performed in, from the quaint Weill Center in Sheboygan, Michigan to the grand Teatro San Carlo in Napoli, Italy.  When in NYC you can often hear Dan at many of the city's jazz clubs like Small's, or The Iridium.  He is very excited to play in a new venue this evening, improvising music for a new medium, the silent film.

Peter  Yarin:
Peter Yarin is a NYC-based pianist, whose unique approach to teaching, writing and performing, bridges classical, contemporary and jazz styles. Featured on the Grammy-winning recording "Music from Boardwalk Empire, Vol. 1" with 1920s vintage jazz orchestra, Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, Peter has performed stride and jazz piano at such venues as Jazz at Lincoln Center, Town Hall, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, A Prairie Home Companion, and the Newport Jazz Festival. He has worked with and accompanied such artists as Garrison Keillor, Michael Feinstein, and Leon Redbone. In addition to Boardwalk Empire, you can hear him on the soundtracks of "The Knick" and Amazon's "Z"; as well as the films Carol, Bessie and Mildred Pierce. An accomplished composer, Peter Yarin is currently developing several projects for musical theater; recent work has been seen at Tokyo’s New National Theatre. He has been published in the BMI Musical Theatre Songbook and Directory of Musical Theatre Writers.
