McCain Performance Series – Gazillion Bubble Show @ McCain Auditorium
Oct 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

After twenty years as a Master of Bubbles, in 2007 Fan Yang brought his unique brand of bubble artistry to the Big Apple and has since wowed bubble lovers of all ages. The Gazillion Bubble Show truly is a family affair for Fan: his wife Ana, son Deni, daughter Melody, and brother Jano all can be found on stage in New York and around the world performing their bubble magic. Audiences are delighted with an unbubblievable experience, awashed with a bubble tide, and some even find themselves INSIDE a bubble. Mindblowing bubble magic, spectacular laser lighting effects, and momentary soapy masterpieces will make you smile, laugh, and feel like a kid again.

McCain Performance Series – Count Basie featuring the New York Voices @ McCain Auditorium
Oct 15 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

In the history of Jazz, only one bandleader has the distinction of having his orchestra still performing to sold out concerts all over the world, with members personally chosen by him, 30 years after his passing. Directed by Scotty Barhhart, CBO has won every respected jazz poll in the world at least once, won 18 Grammy Awards, performed for royalty, appeared in TV shows and movies, and played at every major jazz festival and major concert hall in the world. The latest honors are the 2018 Downbeat Readers Poll Award as the #1 Jazz Orchestra in the world, and a Grammy Nomination for their 2018 acclaimed recording, “All About That Basie.” This great 18-member orchestra is still continuing the excellent history started by Basie of stomping and shouting the blues, as well as refining those musical particulars that allow for the deepest and most moving of swing.

The CBO will feature, The New York Voices, hailed by the Boston Herald as “…the most exciting vocal ensemble in current jazz…to collect such quality voices in one group is rare enough, yet the real trick of New York Voices is how well they mesh…”
