Elaine Chelton, the pianist in Robbins' The Concert, is a cross between Borge and Harpo, as she exudes charm and charisma, in full pantomime persona. She chased the dancers with a butterfly net, hopping about, glancing at the crowd. Her musicality in the Chopin score is unparalleled.

GOD'S COUNTRY:
GOD'S COUNTRY has all the charm and polish of an old-style Broadway musical with a contemporary heart. True of the wonderful score by Elaine Chelton whose sound blends Irish music with soaring ballads, honky-tonk riffs and jigs.

VOICE OF THE CITY:
Voted one of the top ten best theatre productions in 2006 Dayton, Ohio. This is an appealing tale of love in bygone New York. It has a breezy melodious score.

Jones' charming lyrics and Chelton's lilting melodies combined for a gem-filled score that grew more infectious with each scene.
