CVNC.org Presents Its 3rd Annual Critics, Musicians and Audiences: Who Knows Best?
On June 24, CVNC.org, the online arts journal known best for the more than 500 reviews it publishes each year of performances throughout North Carolina, will present its 3rd annual afternoon of musical performances along with a panel discussion among the performers, CVNC.org critics and the audience. Again this year, Ruggero Piano in Raleigh has graciously donated the use of its beautiful Bössendorfer Hall for the 3:00 p.m. performance. This year's performers are world-renown jazz artists vocalist Lenora Zenzalai Helm and pianist Elmer Gibson.
Lenora Zenzalai Helm will be performing with her band - pianist Ryan Hanseler, drummer Larry Q. Draughn, Jr., and bassist Lance Scott, Jr. Their selections will be from their 2011 CD release, I Love Myself When I'm Laughing, and music from the standard Jazz repertoire of the American Songbook, also found on any of their six commercial recordings. Elmer Gibson will be performing selections from his CDs All the Seasons and The Reach of Memory. CDs from both artists will be available for sale.
Admission is free, but donations will gladly be accepted to support the work of CVNC.org in providing its online calendar and reviews of North Carolina arts.
Ruggero Piano is located at 4720-120 Hargrove Road, Suite 120. Directions to Ruggero's can be found on their website.
