Singer/Songwriter Michael Johnson Coming to Hopkins Art Center Saturday
The concert kicks off the Hopkins Center for the Arts’ 2012-13 season.
Editor’s Note: The following announcement comes from the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
Join singer/songwriter Michael Johnson and friends on October 6 at 8pm for a special concert introducing his latest recording with Redhouse Records, Moonlit Déjà Vu. This concert will be the first opportunity fans will have to hear his new songs as well as favorite hits from the past. The concert will be preceded by a social hour with free hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar at 7pm.
Joining Johnson on stage will be Adi Yeshaya (piano/conductor), Gordon Johnson (bass), Marc Anderson (drums/percussion), Mark Henderson (flute, sax), Truly Carmichael (vocals), Rebecca Arons (cello), Jill Olson (violin) and Susan Janda (Viola).
Johnson’s voice immediately identifies him as the man who sings "Bluer Than Blue," "Give Me Wings," "That's That," and other landmark songs. His music shows a diversity, depth and heart that only come from years of dedication to a labor of love. What one remembers from his concerts is the texture of his voice, the meaning of the lyric and the music of the guitar -- singer, song and sound -- and the feeling of being at home with a friend.
This concert is made possible in part through a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the State’s arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008. Additional funds provided by the members and business sponsors of Hopkins Center for the Arts.
Tickets available at www.HopkinsArtsCenter.com 24/7 or through the box office at 952-979-1111 (Tues-Sat, noon-6pm).
This concert is the kick-off to the 2012-13 music season at the Center. The Center presents two concert series, Saturday Sets and Take Five Tuesdays, featuring local as well as national touring artists. More information is available on our website.
