Holiday Concerts

The Stage Truck Holiday Concerts

Display it on our stage trailer or directly on the ground. We bring the holiday concert to you!

We are featuring either concert violin sensation soloist, Irene Fong, out of NYC, or Peabody-trained violinist, Noah Stone, who, while originally out of Chicago, now calls Baltimore home. These solo artists will happily perform any length of show you wish from 15 minutes up to one hour.

Tell us your holiday favorites in advance and we will happily include them. We recommend either 15 or 30 minutes. Both 150 and 200 watt sound systems are available for easy setup. In addition to one of our violin mini concerts, we are happy to offer Victorian carolers for a cappella holiday classics.

Japheth Clark

One of Baltimore’s most iconic musicians, Japheth is the “funny trumpet-playing guy” seen all over town. A skilled player of all brass instruments, he is commonly associated with the “funny trumpet,” a flugelhorn. The flugelhorn is his passion due to its warmer and richer sounds.

He was the inspiration for Peabody faculty member, Judah Adashi’s, original composition “RISE.” Japheth studied music at Morgan State and Coppin State Universities.

Irene Fong

Electric violinist, Irene Fong, has created a unique blend of performance that encompasses the worlds of classical, pop, and jazz elements as well as electronic dance/house music to create an unforgettable and breathtaking experience. Her vibrant and emotive performances captivate audiences worldwide as she performs on her custom-made, signature five-string LED crystal crossbow violin.

Irene currently performs and travels extensively worldwide. Irene has performed with acts including Calvin Harris, R3hab, Hardwell, Steve Aoki, Fedde le Grand, Ray Charles, and has opened for Pitbull, Lady Gaga, Diplo and others.

Her television appearances include “The David Letterman Show,” TLC’s “Four Weddings,” with print features appearing in VOGUE, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Timeout New York and others.
