The Arts Council welcome back, Gainesville native, Robert Cantrell in his debut performance with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Robert found his voice as a member of Gainesville High School’s Crimson Chorus. This is a homecoming of sorts for Robert who continues to be a tour-de-force on the Baltimore/Washington opera scene. “Joining the orchestra was the extraordinary bass-baritone Robert Cantrell, a singer with the Washington National Opera who should be famous.  His sumptuous voice, endless breath control and moving delivery of “Ol Man River” and “American Hymn” swept everyone away.”- The Reading Eagle

Tables of 8 available for $320

Arts Council Signature Series Ticket (all 3 performances) $85

Lynne Arriale – Evenings of Intimate Jazz

“Lynne Arriale’s remarkable career is graced by a rare commitment to authenticity and vulnerability defined by careful craft and high artistic standards. It is precisely this willingness to remain so emotionally exposed that makes her performances so accessible to music lovers of all kinds.” – All About Jazz

lynne_arriale_photo3_wc BuyTicketsButton2

Pianist/composer Lynne Arriale has performed on international concert and festival stages over the past 25 years.  The consummate storyteller, she immediately connects with her listeners.  JazzTimes wrote, “She achieves a special, deep connection with her audience, and the energy flows both ways. Arriale’s emotional authenticity allows her audience to feel and think along with her… Lynne Arriale’s music lies at the synaptic intersection where brain meets heart, where body meets soul. She is one of jazzdom’s most intensely unique voices.”

Small tables, candle light, and the smooth sounds of jazz create the perfect atmosphere for one of The Arts Council’s most loved series, Evenings of Intimate Jazz™. From standards, swing, blues, and soul, Evenings of Intimate Jazz brings the vibe of Bourbon Street and the intimacy of Chicago’s jazz clubs right here to downtown Gainesville.

Evenings of Intimate Jazz Series Ticket $125 (all five performances)

Table for 6 $125
