David Maiocco, in WMUK's Takeda Performance Studio

Pianist-performer David Maiocco is stepping into a role filled with warmth, glitz, talent and showmanship - and at the piano in WMUK's Takeda Performance Studio, he talks about the highs and lows of Liberace's life. Maiocco also includes some trademark tunes, including "Three Little Fishes," and a fantastical version of "Chopsticks." 

LIBERACE! will run April 27th through May 13th at 221 Farmers Alley in downtown Kalamazoo. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Farmers Alley Theatre Box Office at (269)343-2727 or by visiting www.farmersalleytheatre.com.

You can stay in touch with WMUK music on FacebookTwitter, and by signing up for our eNewsletter.

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
