Norman Bemelmans gave his first public solo concert at the age of 7; that was surely a few decades ago and he's still at it.  After studying with such luminaries as Jean Houpt, Stefan Bardas, Richard Cass, Patrizia Benkman, and Ozan Marsch, Bemelmans toured under the sponsorship of Pobitzer Artists International and the Franz Liszt Foundation.  


The musical The Lambda has cult-classic status in the Wilmington theater community.  The show, set in a 1970s gay bar in Carolina Beach, premiered in 1992.  The show was penned by former Wilmingtonian Steve Cooper with music by another former local, Brad Moranz.  Cooper's work has lived on locally through Thalian Hall's yearly Pied Piper shows.  The Lambda is steeped in history, both locally and in the larger arc of social acceptance for gays.
