NEW BERLIN – On Saturday, Oct. 13, 7 p.m. at the Unadilla Valley Central School Auditorium the New Berlin Art Forum proudly presents award-winning International Illusionist, Leon Etienne, who is an accomplished Magical Arts Performer. His interest in the art of magic began at the age of 12. One year later while playing in a baseball game, Etienne was very lucky to have survived being struck by lighting. Today, Etienne has well over a decade of professional performing experience. His love and passion for the art of magic has taken him all over the globe, performing nationally in entertainment hotspots across the U.S., and internationally in Germany, Ireland, Wales, Australia, and at the world-famous magic circle in London, England. Etienne’s performances have also won him several prestigious magic and community awards, including three-time CNY Magician of the Year from the International Brotherhood of Magicians, Ring 101. He has also won the title of Stage Magic Champion from the Magicians’ Alliance of Eastern States.
