When: April 3 (Sunday), 4 pm
Where: Gethsemane Church, off Depot Street in Proctorsville
Description: Raise the Roof winter concert series will be capped with a stellar performance by the beautiful Wanda Houston, known for her soulful singing of blues, funk, jazz and dusky romantic standards. Performing since third grade and trained in opera, Houston has sung and acted her way across theater stages, on film, in cabarets, recording studios and large concert halls. She can belt out the blues, move your spirit with gospel and stir your soul with timeless romantic standards. A critic for Time Out magazine in New York wrote, “The mega voiced Wanda Houston blows the roof off!”
Houston will be joined on stage by the renowned Eugene Uman on keyboard and Dave Picchi on acoustic bass. Uman is the musical director of Brattleboro’s Vermont Jazz Center and Picchi teaches and performs his blend of pop, soul, jazz and rock in northern Massachusetts. The convergence of talent that Houston, Uman and Picchi bring to the stage will create a remarkable afternoon of music in a tiny church with big acoustics.
