Though i was warned that there is “nothing” to do in Jackson, i been keeping myself rather busy. Since moving to J-Town, i have blossomed as an artist because the beat of the artist culture is actually fairly strong here.
This evening i sat in on the rehearsal for Thursday night’s “An Evening with Carner and Gregor” at the Michigan Theatre (Tickets $10, doors open at 6:00pm.) It’s not every day that award winning broadway composers/songwriters pit stop in Jackson. Thanks to Ann Holt, and a connection she has with the duo, Jackson is in for a true delight.
During tonight’s rehearsal i got to witness the actual song writer and lyricist coach our very own Jacksonian performers and musicians. Sam Carner and Derek Gregor offered insights to their songs to pull out nuances that might be missed in other performances. And as if that wasn’t enough excitement for me, i got to see Ali Ewoldt, a broadway star, rehearse with our very own Chip Mezo— RIGHT HERE in Jackson!
i am so excited for tomorrow’s performance. It is surely an event that will be remembered by our community as something special. But don’t take my word for it. Come and see it for yourself.
