Singer Erin Bode (pictured) and pianist Peter Martin will help kick off St. Louis' Design Week 2011 with a performance at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 18 at the Roberts Orpheum Theater. The event will raise funds for pancreatic cancer research, and also will include a performance from members of Circus Flora and the Zoppe Family; a video presentation on "St. Louis Design Legends”; an auction of artist-made jewelry; and more.
Bode and Martin have worked together before several times, most recently at Martin's performance in December at the Sheldon Concert Hall. Bassist Chris Thomas, like Martin a native of University City, was part of that concert and also will join Bode and Martin at the Roberts Orpheum.
Tickets for the Design Week performance by Erin Bode and Peter Martin are $100 for VIP seats, $25 for general admission, and can be purchased online via Ticketmaster.
