On Saturday, August 25th, 2018, SATORI CIRCUS will present almost 30 years of original music with a new twist-by performing them with a choir! SATORI CIRCUS, accompanied by a slew of Detroit and Port Huron friends, will reinterpret original tunes as new arrangements via A Cappella and perform them live at the historical site of St. Albertus Church, one of the city's oldest buildings at 146 years old! Selections will come from performance art pieces such as “EQUILBRIUM”, “MOSES:39”, “Child-Proof”, “Funy As Hell”, “63mins” and “poems we tell ourselves”.

A thought had occurred a few years back for S.C. while reading an article about the Judson Church in New York City, which lead to reminiscing about the mid to late 80’s in Detroit, when S.C. was a young performance artist, and venues such as abandoned buildings, galleries, lofts and sometimes churches were used for performance. Whether it be dance, music ensembles or other alternative performance, these spaces were a great breeding ground for difference, self-challenges and stretching the imagination.

So with a wild thought at the forefront of his mind, S.C. started reaching out to churches that possibly would allow something wild and organic, and possibly on the verge of chaos to be performed within its walls. So the networking began. And from word of mouth, to friend to friend to acquaintance, S.C. was introduced to Matt Baka of St. Albertus Parrish, who opened the doors to the church and galvanized the concept of S.C. and friends singing songs from years past…and giving them new life with a new audience.

St. Albertus Church is the Mother Church of all Polish parishes in the Archdiocese of Detroit. The parish was founded in 1872 and was the spiritual home to many Polish immigrants in the late 1800s and early 1900s. St. Albertus Church, erected in 1884, still stands proudly at the corner of St. Aubin and Canfield as an icon of Detroit's Polonia. The iconography of the church is spectacular and is often compared to the finest Churches of Europe. The church was declared State of Michigan Historic Site and placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior. The parish was officially closed in 1990 after 118 years as an active parish. A group of former parishioners and historians formed the Polish American Historic Site Association (PAHSA), a 501-C (3) non-profit group, to care for the Church and adjoining properties as a historic site and museum of cultural history.

Award-winning singer-songwriter Emily Rose will mark the release of her third full-length studio album with a concert on Saturday, August 18 at 8pm at The Ant Hall in Hamtramck, Michigan. Celebrate the highly anticipated album, ‘Wake Up Brave’ as Rose unveils the songs she has labored over for nearly three years. Rose will perform solo, in addition to being joined by her musical trio-mates Audra Kubat, and Tamara Finlay. Fellow singer-songwriters Scott Fab and Carmel Liburdi will open the evening with their original music sets. 

The Detroit based singer-songwriter has dazzled audiences in her hometown and beyond for several years now and was named “Outstanding Americana Vocalist” by the Detroit Music Awards in 2018. Her roots are steeped in poetic songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Fiona Apple, and Rose began composing and performing her own music as a teen. Her mode of articulation borders on confessional, while grounded in observational story-telling. Taking on uncommon narratives and building their soundtrack – her reward is in the telling. Music writer Scott Kraus wrote,“Emily Rose embodies the concept of songwriting as calling over profession.” She released her first studio album in 2006.

In addition to extensive touring throughout the Midwest, Rose has had her songs included in movie soundtracks and the song “Seven Rooms” in the Detroit: Become Human video game. She is also an author of her first book of poetry, “Cemetery Tea Party” released in 2014. Rose has been a music educator for almost a decade. Her latest body of work, ‘Wake Up Brave’ will bring into focus the canon of this compelling and poignant artist.

Scott Fab creates a meditative intimacy through stories of everyday life. Scott’s latest record, ‘Leave My Friends’ was released last year garnering him showcases at Folk Alliance Midwest and Kerrville as a New Folk finalist. 

Carmel Liburdi is a singer/songwriter who performs alternative folk with ragtime, punk, and jazz influences. Liburdi's fun performances are full of energy and soul. Her most recent release "Insomnia Slumber Party" was nominated for a Detroit Music Award.

The Ant Hall is Planet Ant Theatre’s newest performance venue; established on March 2017. Throughout its 20-year history, Planet Ant has produced original creative content, as well as myriad theatre/improv/music/comedy festivals, musical productions, comedy tournaments, and events for both regional and national artists across a vast spectrum of mediums. 

The show is Saturday, at 8pm (7:30 doors) at The Ant Hall located at 2320 Caniff St, Hamtramck, MI 48212.  

Tickets are $10 at the door or $8.50 in advance online at
