Eleventh Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island

Peter Mintun - Featured Pianist at this happy 1920s themed event

Saturday and Sunday, August 13th and 14th, 11 am until 5 pm

Tickets (they sell out quickly): http://www.jazzagelawnparty.com/tickets.html

The Jazz Age Lawn Party
is New York City’s original prohibition era inspired gathering. Hosted and conceived by Michael Arenella, the event started as a small gathering of perhaps fifty friends and fans. The event, initially produced by the island, was handed over to Michael in its third year to organize and grow. Under his watch, the event was carefully crafted and nurtured, becoming what is now referred to by The Wall Street Journal as, “the biggest (not to mention the cleanest and most family-oriented) regular event in the ‘Retro Noveau’ movement...” It was at this time that St-Germain joined forces with The Lawn Party, delightfully whetting the whistles of fops and flappers with their refreshing summer cocktails.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COLE PORTER

Friday, June 3, 2016 - 8:00 PM - Herbst Theatre
401 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, 94102

Cole Porter: The very name exudes wit, worldliness, sophistication and irreverence.


No one in the world of American popular music elevated the level of musical discourse to the extent Cole Albert Porter did. The first choice of recording artists from Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Tony Bennett, The Cole Porter Society presents Cole Porter in Paris, The Lost Songs. You will hear 18 songs never before heard in San Francisco from La Révue des Ambassadeurs, performed only three times in the past 86 years.

According to musical theater historian Ken Bloom, who unearthed the treasures, the Lost Songs provide a glimpse of the composer on the precipice of success. "It’s typical Porter on the way to becoming great Porter. You can see everything that’s going to come in just a year or two."

Join Noah Griffin and an ensemble of the Bay Area's stellar artists including Grammy nominated Desirée Goyette, cabaret favorites Amanda King and Deborah Winters, opera and light opera stars Michael Dailey and Martin Bell, along with 16 year old singing prodigy Sofia Perozzi. Accompanying the vocalists will be society pianist Peter Mintun and Grammy Award winner Laurence Hobgood.

Musical Theater expert Charles Troy will present a pre-program multimedia presentation on Cole Porter in Paris. New York based musical theater historian, playwright and producer, Ken Bloom, will direct.

All proceeds benefit The Cole Porter Society’s mission to bring The Great American Songbook to our schools, elevating the musical literacy of our young people.

Fundraising ticket prices: $125, $95, $65

Peter Mintun plays and sings! - Songs of Old New York

April 7, 2016 -7 PM
Church of The Transfiguration
1 East 29 Street, NY, NY

On Thursday, April 7 the Episcopal Actors’ Guild presents pianist/singer Peter Mintun in a special public concert of the Songs of Old New York. 7:00 in the Church of The Transfiguration at 1 East 29 Street, Manhattan. “The Little Church Around The Corner” (as it is known) was the Episcopal confirmation church of Fred Astaire.

The Golden Era of Popular Music (1920s and '30s) has long been Mintun's field of expertise. From his vast repertoire he has made a selection of songs that not only reflect a high standard of songwriting but also paints a vivid picture of New York before World War II. “She’s A Latin From Manhattan” “Penthouse Serenade” and “Fifth Avenue” are just a few from Mintun’s trunk.

CYNTHIA GLINKA and other dancers as well as 13-year-old Tiburon singing prodigy SOFIA PEROZZI will also be featured.

The Cole Porter Society is a sponsored project of MarinLink, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation. Our mission is to preserve, promote and perpetuate the musical legacy of Cole Porter to the younger generation.

PETER MINTUN has written the notes for the new Shellwood (U.K.) CD SWCD32

CY WALTER
THE PARK AVENUE TATUM

Possibly the greatest 5 star hotel pianist that ever graced America. His arrangements and stylings of the memorable show tunes of the 30s, 40s & 50s are the stuff of legend, his fluent and breathtaking abilities were marvelled at by his peer group which included Cole Porter, Gershwin, Richard Rogers and many of the best composers of that glorious era.

Upon hearing about this CD, the legendary pianist, George Shearing declared with conviction, "I shall be first in line to buy it!"

Michael Feinstein, who was twelve years old when Walter died, added, "Listening to Cy Walter's recordings is one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever had."

A SPECIAL LIVE MUSIC AND MOVIE EVENT !

Peter Mintun's Movietone Follies of 2007

Piano virtuoso, pop music historian and national treasure Peter Mintun returns for another fun-filled evening, taking us on a history of the Fox (and later 20th Century-Fox) studio's music and song, from its earliest Movietone scores for silent movies to the Golden Age of the Fox musical.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2006   8:00 PM

 

At the new Steinway in the Greenbrier's Old White Lounge, redecorated by Carlton Varney for the 2002 engagement of Peter Mintun.



Peter Mintun is one of America's favorite society pianists.

Peter began his career in San Francisco, where for twenty five years his playing graced such rooms as Masons in The Fairmont Hotel and L'Etoile in the Huntington Hotel.

In 1994, at the suggestion of Michael Feinstein, he came across the United States to his first New York engagement, performing at The Madison Room at the New York Palace Hotel. Shortly thereafter he moved uptown to the Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle, where he entertained some of New York's most toney guests and visitors through 2002. Since then he has appeared at the famous Greenbrier Hotel and Resort in West Virginia, inaugurating their newly designed Old White Lounge (designed with Peter especially in mind by Carlton Varney, president of Dorothy Draper Incorporated - it was Mrs. Draper who redesigned The Greenbrier after the Second World War in her own inimitable and fanciful taste).

In 1999 Peter picked up and left his San Francisco home and bought a brownstone in upper Manhattan. Always an original one family residence, it has provided a home for Peter's various pianos (including multiple player pianos and Dana Suesse's concert Steinway), and his vast collection of paper perforated piano rolls, wind-up phonographs, and miles of vintage sheet music. On January 30, 2005 the house and Peter were profiled in the New York Times in a feature by Christopher Gray.

In 2003 Peter visited London, supervising concerts of the "classical" music of the late Dana Suesse. The music of this composer, who was represented by Mr. Mintun, has been revived recently by the BBC Concert Orchestra (conducted by John McGlinn), and the Albany Symphony (conducted by David Alan Miller - piano soloist Kevin Cole). Dennis Colwell conducted Suesse's Jazz Concerto (1956) with the River City Brass Band in Pittsburgh, PA. The soloist was Donna Amato.

A profile on Mr. Mintun was written by Will Friedwald for the New York Sun in the issue of January 25, 2005.

Peter finishes off the year, as he has done for over a decade, conducting his own Peter Mintun Orchestra for the San Francisco Symphony's New Year's Eve Gala at Davis Symphony Hall.
