In memory of Muriel Siebert with Eric Comstock & Barbara Fasano

ERIC COMSTOCK & BARBARA FASANO, whose electrifying combination of warmth, wit, swing and sensuality have made them the nightclub world's most celebrated team, are every bit as entertaining as they are musically savvy.  Although this married musical duo has been compared to Bobby Short and Lena Horne, Fred and Ginger, and Lunt and Fontanne, the “golden couple’s” style is all their own, with a wide choice of material that brings the generations together.  Their repertoire runs the gamut from Cole Porter to Paul Simon, from Duke Ellington to Joni Mitchell, from Sinatra to Sting. Eric and Barbara make all of it fresh, new, spontaneous and fun -- and their audiences feel they've been to a terrific party where the music and the stories have been equally great. 

Regular performers at New York’s most prestigious clubs and concert halls, Eric and Barbara’s cozy New York apartment is filled with awards for their concerts and recordings.  Most recently, they were honored for the third time with the 2016 Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC) award for Major Duo Artists.  As well, Barbara’s newest CD “BUSY BEING FREE” was awarded the 2016 MAC Award for Major Recording of the Year. Their fast-paced and swinging concerts of songs from the jazz and pop songbooks have been hailed as “exhilarating” and “witty” by The New York Times, and have had audiences standing and cheering from coast to coast.

Stephen Holden of The New York Times declares that "Mr. Comstock and Ms. Fasano are turning the neighborhood into a hotbed of pleasure." Rex Reed of The New York Observer writes, "He is hip, daring, confident and dynamic. She gives off palpable electricity.  If love is a wave, they’re riding the crest of it."  The New York Post’s Frank Scheck raves, "Their joint venture is a capital idea. When they sing together the evening is transformed from collaboration to alchemy."

Their many New York engagements include Carnegie Hall, The Appel Room and Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Merkin Hall, Symphony Space, Feinstein's, The Carlyle,  The Algonquin, Birdland, Jazz at Kitano, and the 92nd Street Y's ‘Lyrics and Lyricists’ series, as well as concert halls and festivals coast to coast and in Europe.  In the words of jazz critic Ira Gitler, they “have it all, and then some … artistic, swinging, and superbly entertaining."

Arthur Houghton: The Making of a Novel

EVENT FINISHED

In the late 1980s the J. Paul Getty Museum, the richest museum in the world, was rocked by a scandal that forever changed the world of antiquities.  A rogue curator had stolen millions from the museum's coffers, and as was later learned some of the most prized antiquities acquired by the Getty and many famous museums had been looted from other countries.  Arthur Houghton served as curator at the Getty during this period of upheaval and will provide a unique inside perspective of these momentous events that became the genesis of his recent thriller novel, Dark Athena.

Arthur Houghton brings his extensive diplomatic experience and credentials in art and classical studies to unfold the fascinating story of the Getty scandal and the resulting sweeping changes in international laws involving the acquisition of antiquities.  With degrees from Harvard College and the American University of Beirut, Arthur Houghton entered the U.S. Department of State in 1966, where he held assignments in Beirut, Amman, Cairo and Washington, D.C.  He returned to Harvard to secure a second degree in art history in 1981 and served as Associate Curator and Curator in Charge of Antiquities at the Getty Museum from 1982 to 1986.

Houghton has been personally involved in evolving international antiquity policies as a member of numerous boards, including the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, the Cyprus-American Archaeological Research Institute, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the American Numismatic Society, the Middle East Institute and American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA), among others.  More recently, he served on the U.S. Cultural Property Advisory Committee and on the U.S. Mint’s Citizens’ Coin Advisory Committee.  

Houghton's publications include four books and more than fifty articles on ancient coinages and economics.  Dark Athena, his first novel, is to be followed by a second, The Genesis Cypher.
