Regina Spektor brings her "stylistic melting pot" sound to Messiah College
GRANTHAM, Pa. (Dec. 22, 2006) — In a final stop before the start of an international tour, Regina Spektor will perform at Messiah College on Jan. 20 at 8 p.m. in Brubaker Auditorium, located in the Eisenhower Campus Center. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by calling the college ticket office at (717) 691-6036 or going to www.messiah.musictoday.com.
According to "Time" magazine, Spektor's music is a "stylistic melting pot," reflective of her family's trek to America from Russia when she was nine years old. Spektor drew the attention of The Strokes and toured with them recently. Her latest album, "Begin to Hope," is quickly earning acclaim, including her recent recognition as VH1's "Artist on the Rise."
A 2005 story in the Associated Press described Spektor's music as "a Molotov cocktail of lyrical classical piano compositions, indie rock crescendos, fuzzy guitars and playful piano snippets that sound like traditional Russian folk songs." For more about Spektor, visit www.reginaspektor.com.
