Danielle Knox and Jon Grier Perform Music Old and New
The Greenville Fine Arts Center’s Danielle McCormick Knox, Instructor of Voice, and Jon Jeffrey Grier, Faculty Emeritus will perform recent and new songs and arrangements in an evening of lyric reflections, present and past. The first half of the program will feature songs by Grier about contemporary issues like gun violence, the environment, and the post-truth era. The second half features new arrangements of classic songs by Stephen Foster, offering insights into Foster’s thoughts on love, poverty, the Civil War, and beer. These will be accompanied on an 1834 Nunns & Clark square piano, an instrument that Foster may well have known. The performance takes place at the Carolina Music Museum in Greenville, March 6th at 7:30 PM. Call for tickets and to reserve seating.
