Cynthia Adams & Janet Wherry • Piano/Cello Duo
We played everywhere! Venues included Nationwide Insurance, Lincoln-Leveque Tower, Capitol Square South, Aladdin Shrine Temple, The River Club, Schottenstein Zox & Dunn, Franklin Park Conservatory, malls, country clubs, hotels, weddings, in-home parties, art galleries and retirement homes. Eventually, we got tired of lugging the electric piano, bench, music stand, cello in hard case, chair, and sound system.  And we got tired of working every holiday season.

It was sad when this group disbanded for financial reasons.
Musical Theater
I love Broadway!  I accompanied my first musical when I was a freshman in high school. I've been the Music Director, Conductor and/or Pianist for the following central Ohio productions:

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum Actors' Summer Theater Company
Anything Goes Weathervane Playhouse --  Big River Actors' Summer Theater Company
Chicago Spotlight Dinner Theater  --  Fiddler On the Roof Gallery Players
Little Mary Sunshine Weathervane Playhouse  --  My Fair Lady Actors' Summer Theater Company
Of Thee I Sing Gallery Players  --  Oliver Actors' Summer Theater Company
Peter Pan Palace Theater Pleasure Guild  --  Some Enchanted Evening Spotlight Dinner Theater

I've also done Annie, Applause, Brigadoon, The Music Man, Oklahoma, Once Upon A Mattress, Pippin, The Sound of Music, The Wiz and You're A Good Man Charlie Brown.  The one show I'd give my eye teeth to do is SWEENEY TODD.
