The conversation continues.

After sitting in a chair and talking with my friend, The Stissing Center, I had an idea about how to continue the conversation. I contacted some friends, and asked them to come perform. Alone. To sit in the chair as I did. In the building, for the building. To offer some music, poetry, dance, or maybe even a monologue or two. So that they, and you, could get to know The Stissing Center as well as I do.

We hope you enjoy The Chair Series™. We’ll continue to roll out these short performances on a regular basis. Let us know what you think.

We miss you. We look forward to the time when we can meet, in person, at The Stissing Center and celebrate our community together.

What they are saying about The Chair Series™:

I just wanted to reach out and say how wonderful the “Chair Sessions” are. Watched Brian’s when it posted and today Eugenia. They are marvelous, poignant and such a perfect way to keep Memorial Hall in people’s minds right now. Can’t wait for the next one!! With gratitude from your avid fan…


This chair series is a great idea, Brian. And all I can say about Ms Zukerman is WOW!


Such a heartfelt rendition of Close Your Eyes, Brian!! A perfect tribute to The Stissing Center! I hope things are beginning to move in a good direction and that we’ll soon see live performances…together and unmasked!


I was so moved by your Chair Series video and your guitar rendition that I had to write to you about some of the feelings I’ve been having about you and the Stissing Center’s cancelled Spring series. I’m aware of how hard this is for you and I share your sense of loss.

I know we must think of the future, after Covid-19, but right now I find myself reliving exceptional moments of theater, dance and performance I’ve had the great fortune to experience over the years… I look forward to many more such memorable moments at Stissing. Thank you for your faith in our community. We will overcome.
