Come experience a unique showcase of incredible songs, storytelling, collaboration and community. Avi Wisnia & Aaron Nathans host a monthly concert in the round where 4 talented songwriters take turns performing an eclectic variety of songs. The artists reveal the stories behind their songs, while also speaking to the unique perspective that comes with having strong connections to the Philadelphia music scene.
Adam Monaco – makes songs for the human spirit. His music is lush and colorfully melodic. Lyrically, his work is personal, deep, sometimes funny, and often evocative. Adam’s performance resonates so authentically with listeners that it’s not unusual to find a handful of people in tears before Adam lifts the audience back up with some friendly commentary or well-placed comedic relief.
Chana Rothman – is a Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter. She has traveled and performed internationally from Berlin to Cape Town to Tel Aviv. Chana plays guitar and has recently been composing on the ukulele, often commissioned to write songs for young people. Her most recent song, Grow, can be heard at Jewish summer camps across North America. Currently she enjoys engaging in local projects, having recently completed RealWomenRealSongs Season 3, a song-a-week community songwriting challenge spanning a year.
“Avi Wisnia represents the best of the singer-songwriter genre: great voice, great songs, exciting stage presence. He plays piano like he was born to it.”
– The Folk Project
“Startlingly clever. Lyrically brilliant. Completely refreshing.”
– Alyssa Rashbaum, music critic for SPIN, VIBE, and Rebel Spirit Music
