If you’re looking for a great way to spend a couple of hours on Friday night, I think I’ve got just the ticket.  Statesville’s Marie Speece recently gave me a flyer for an upcoming event at Mitchell Community College called Music from the Grove.  That relates to all the great music that Iredell County’s Union Grove is famous for.  This gathering of Grove-type musicians whose jam sessions at The Cook Shack are legendary are here to entertain the crowd and help raise funds for the Mitchell Community College Endowment for Excellence.  The fun starts at 7:00pm at Shearer Hall.  HERE’s a link to more details. 

I recommend you go, have some fun, and throw a wad of bills (or a big check) in the hat for the endowment!

Tonight is the kickoff for this summer’s concert series in Statesville called Friday After Five.  It runs from 5:30PM to 8:30PM.  There’s beer, wine, soft drinks and food available for purchase.  See more information and the entire summer schedule HERE.

Tonight’s band is the legendary Catalinas.  I remember that name from back when I was still in high school.  Back then, if you went somewhere that the Catalinas were playing, you knew you were in for a good time.  Have not seen them in a long time.  There have been a few personnel changes since then.  I doubt that a bunch of 70 year olds can party down for that long at a time.  I know that back then I played tenor sax in a local beach music band know as the Just Six band (although we eventually fudged and added a seventh player).  We could start at seven and play until midnight before we were worn out.  Now, I’d say a spirited half hour would probably finish us off.

Check out downtown Statesville.  Got some neat things happening there.

INTERSECTION Performs Sunday Afternoon

February 21, 2010, 3:00PM

Mooresville High School- Roland R. Morgan Auditorium

The violin, cello and piano trio, Intersection has forged a powerful connection with audiences worldwide. as the group’s numerous recordings top classical and crossover charts in Asia, their fan base continues to rapidly grow throughout Europe and the US.Intersection

Their program is anything but typical — a Hungarian thread in Brahms may spin into Gypsy tunes, Dvorak into Slavic dance forms, Ravel into ethereal French renderings. And…they present American repertoire spanning avant garde and popular genres. Drawing inspiration from their home base in New York, Intersection is an exciting musical embodiment of vitality, verve and diversity. 

Concert or seasonal tickets may be purchased at the door.  Go to the ICA website for more info on the concert schedule and ticket pricing.

Carolina BrassI work with the Iredell Concert Association to bring great live music to local venues in Iredell County each year.  On Sunday, November 8th, we’re presenting another excellent group of performers known as Carolina Brass.  They’ll be at Western Avenue Baptist Church (directions HERE) in Statesville at 3:00PM.  Admission is by season ticket, or tickets are available at the door.  Click HERE for more information on tickets and what’s coming up.  Here is a quote about Carolina Brass from our brochure:

“As a national touring ensemble and Summit Recording artist, Carolina Brass has quickly become the premiere brass ensemble of the Southeast, raising the bar for music performance and education in America.  From the elegance and grace of beautiful classical music to the hard driving sound of big band, Carolina brass will sweep you off your feet and leave a smile on your face. Their winning combination of virtuosity and humor brings a fresh approach to great music of all types, engaging audiences in a vibrant and energetic musical experience.”

I anticipate some great “goosebump” music from these guys.  Come see and hear for yourself!
