    Bio:
    As a multicultural artist, with Scottish, Irish, French and Malaysian heritage, Jocelyn integrates the Celtic and folk traditions of her roots into her shows and compositions. With uplifting energy and engaging stage presence, she presents a lively and joyful performance of traditional, contemporary, and original music.
    With her band and other collaborations, Jocelyn has toured across Canada, and in the U.S., the U.K., Europe, and Malaysia. Performances have taken her from international festival stages and theatres, to intimate house concerts and community dances; from medieval castles, to incomparably special hometown shows.

    As a recording artist, Jocelyn has released three albums – her Debut, received multiple award nominations, and her second album, Caravan, was nominated for “World Artist of the Year” at the Western Canadian Music Awards, and at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. A third album, Wind Rose, was released in June 2022, recorded with band members and special guest collaborators in BC and Scotland.
    As an educator, Jocelyn has taught fiddle and stepdance lessons and workshops at numerous schools, venues, and festivals in Canada, the U.S., the U.K., and France.  She is passionate about sharing the joy of music and dance, and helping others learn.
    An active member of her community, Jocelyn was named a 2017 BC Culture Days Ambassador, as part of a Canada-wide movement to make culture accessible to all.  She was selected as a 2010 Olympic Torchbearer, for Community Leadership Recognition.
    Jocelyn has a Master of Music Degree, from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.  She performs with The Jocelyn Pettit Band, Jocelyn Pettit & Ellen Gira, and other special collaborations.

  • 1/13 DeCafe Concert feauting The Rob Curto Trio

    1/13/2023 DeCafe Concert featuring the Rob Curto Trio.
    Start Time: 8pm
    Rob Curto, accordion
    Rob Curto forges diverse strands of traditional knowledge into a uniquely American style of accordion-driven Roots music. His sound is both elemental and sophisticated; drawing oxygen from his father’s great love of the music of Count Basie and Lester Young, informed by decades spent firing up nightly Brazilian dance parties, and more recently defined by fingers forming detailed melodies that draw from the deep vein of Irish traditional music. Rob is a recipient of the 2023 Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Grant from the Pennsylvania Council for the Arts, which provides funding to further deepen his study of the Irish button accordion alongside his teacher and mentor Billy McComiskey.
    Melissa Brun, cello, is a freelance and teaching artist in Phoenixville, PA.  She hosts a private teaching studio of 30 students from her home, teaches at Waldron Mercy Academy, and manages the Chester County Youth Orchestra.  Additionally, Melissa is a String Clinician and Outreach Supervisor for D’Addario Orchestra, where she presents virtual workshops to students and educators about strings, the string-making process, and how to make educated string choices.  Melissa is also a member of the Irish trio Maggie’s Boots, and half of the creative writing team and performer for the children’s music group The Big Idea Committee.  Follow Melissa on social media (FB: Melissa Brun, IG: @CelloGal), or visit her website (www.melissabrun.com) for more information.
    Doug Hirlinger is a multidisciplinary artist focused on drum set and vibraphone performance, composition, electronic music creation and creative coding, individually and in multiple combinations. 
    Doug has performed throughout the United States and Europe with many musicians and ensembles of note. In 2018 Doug completed an artist residency at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, resulting in a 10-piece suite exploring gentrification, inequality, and musical legacy in Philadelphia with collaborators Ursula Rucker, M’Balia Singley, Tim Motzer, and John Swana. In the summer of 2022 Doug was commissioned to write Water Speaks along with Keisha Hutchins Hirlinger by Philadelphia Jazz Project as part of "POOL: A Social History of Segregation", an exhibit at the Philadelphia Water Works. Doug creates electronic music under the name Man From Nowhere.

    Billy McComiskey, Irish button accordion, guest artist

    “Billy McComiskey is the finest and most influential B/C box player ever to emerge from the US. In that sense, Billy’s place within the transatlantic pantheon of Irish button accordionists is both high and secure, and Outside The Box will only strengthen that judgment.”

    – Earle Hitchner, The Wall Street Journal / Irish Echo

    Billy McComiskey is a highly regarded player and composer of Irish traditional music. A Brooklyn native, he started studying accordion with the late Sean McGlynn from Galway in his early teens. He won the All-Ireland Senior title in 1986. He formed and played with two legendary trios: Washington DC’s Irish Tradition and the internationally acclaimed Trian. He is known on both sides of the Atlantic as an indefatigable session player, teacher, and promulgator of the music. Recently recognized as a Master Artist through the Pennsylvania Traditional Arts Apprenticeship grant

    Open auditions for “Romeo and Juliet” are at Perkins Arboretum and Center for the Arts, 395 Kings Highway, Moorestown, NJ 08057 on June 7, 2024 from 6:30pm until 9:00pm and Saturday, June 8 from 10:00am until 4:00pm.  We specialize in everyone from newcomers, who have never done a show before, to experienced, retired professionals ~ and in all areas:  house, production, stagecraft, directing, acting, costuming.  If you would like to do any of these things, let us know.  Headshots and resumés are helpful, but hardly mandatory, but the desire to learn is!


    We will perform the show outside in the Arboretum..  The performances will be September 12, 13, 19, and 20 at 7:00pm; September 14 and 21 at 2:00pm and 7:00pm and September 22 at 2:00pm.


    As always, rehearsals will be Friday nights: 7:00pm until 10:00pm and Sundays: 2:00pm until ?

    The roles are unpaid and non-union, but we will continue to choose four individuals to work as “actor-mentors,” who will receive each $100 honoraria at close of show.  We still retain the practice of paying all people who must pay tolls/EZPass $20 per month to defray that cost.  We now work our shows from grant-to-grant and, hence, do not charge admission, although we do encourage donations for the work of Exclamation Theater.  We are still a 501(C)3 non-profit.

    OUR PUBLISHED HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY:

    “Exclamation Theater, Inc. is 30 years old!  Known as “The Company” at the outset, we opened our first play, William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” in 1993. In 1997, we incorporated and changed the theater’s name to “Exclamation Theater, Inc.” at the request of one of the co-founders. To date, we have undertaken 300 plays and several films. We specialize in new actors, mentor actors and technicians, Classical text, and new or underperformed plays and screenplays by living writers. We particularly excel at training people, and have been credited with filling-in for the loss of Speech and Public Speaking classes from the general high school curriculum.  We use actors and technicians of color, with disabilities, women and men of all ages, male-presenting/female-presenting and gender non-conforming, and other members of historically and currently marginalized communities that are not well represented or misrepresented onstage in theater and filmic productions. We also travel. So far, we have covered eight states and territories.”
