Big Music Weekend
Last night I sang “Mean To Me” with an ASU Big Band at The Fowler Center. Tonight I'll be attending Caitlyn Lyerly's flute recital at the Fine Arts Recital Hall. Saturday afternoon is The Arkansas Roots Festival at CWL Park.
Then Saturday at 7:00 PM we have our third and final New Jazz In Jonesboro program for this term in the Round Room at the Jonesboro Public Library. Featuring Suzanne Michell and Fred Wilson from Little Rock as well as the New Jazz House Band, NJHB, it's sure to be a great show. Come to listen or come to play with NJHB, guest musicians and composers are welcome.
Sunday morning I'm singing in the choir.
And I'm sure there's a lot of other great music in Jonesboro this weekend, including Godspell at the Fowler Center. It's a Big Music Weekend. At least it will be for me.
“Godspell,” based upon the Gospel of Matthew, uses music, dance, comedy and magic to illustrate the parables of Jesus Christ, as well as the story of the last supper and crucifixion. The original production of “Godspell” enjoyed over 2,700 performances in its New York run and has remained one of the world’s most beloved musicals for more than 40 years. Performances are Friday and Saturday, April 12-13, and Tuesday and Wednesday, April 16-17, at 7:30 p.m. in Drama Theatre, located in Fowler Center on the university campus. A matinee performance will be Sunday, April 14, at 2 p.m.
