Bowfire presents an “All Star Show” with the leading names in each genre of modern string playing at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, in Hall Auditorium. The performance is part of the Miami University Performing Arts Series.

An “exceptionally high quality music experience and a fast paced theatrically staged show,” Bowfire has proven itself to be a must-see event everywhere it is presented.

It takes audiences on a musical journey that moves between jazz, classical, bluegrass, Celtic, rock, Gypsy, world, Texas swing and Ottawa Valley and Cape Breton styles and mixes in step and tap dancing and a beautiful voice. All of this gets “wrapped around a fast-paced show with first class production values that include great sound, choreography, dramatic lighting, set design and costumes.”

The Bowfire company is composed of virtuoso string players who are at the forefront of their respective styles, combined with equally gifted and respected backup musicians: piano/keyboards, bass, drums/percussion, guitars and cello.

Fiddlers in the company are also world-class step dancers and tap dancers. The company is brought together under the guidance of Lenny Solomon, creator and artistic director, and Stafford Arima, Broadway-acclaimed stage director.

Bowfire is presented by the Performing Arts Series and is sponsored by The Knolls of Oxford, Kona Bistro and the Jim and Kathy Squance family.

Tickets, $28 adults, $27 seniors, and $13 students/youth, are available at the Miami box office or online.

Discounts are available for groups of five or more.
