Trinity Star Arts Council to present ‘The Rose’
With Valentine’s Day approaching, those who wish to give their beloved a special treat may consider getting tickets to Trinity Star Arts Council’s production of “The Rose.”
Feature artist in the production will be cabaret singer, actress and songwriter Amanda McBroom.
The Rose: an evening with cabaret singer and songwriter Amanda McBroom, will take place Saturday, Feb. 10, just a few days before Valentine’s Day, at Depot X, 140 E Highway U.S. 84 in Fairfield.
McBroom has been described by The New York Times as “…the greatest cabaret performer of her generation, an urban poet who writes like an angel and has a voice to match.”
Most notable of her original songs is “The Rose,” which Bette Midler sang in the film of the same name. Though Midler’s version brought worldwide fame, it was McBroom’s performance of her own song at the Golden Globes and Grammy Awards that convinced audiences that the best interpretation of her songs is by the songwriter herself. “The Rose” won Best Original Song in 1979 and remains a classic favorite today.
Doors will open at 6:15 p.m., and the concert beginning at 7:15 p.m. After the concert, attendees will be able to meet the artist at a special reception. Tickets are $35 and may be purchased in Fairfield at Armadillo Emporium or Incommons Bank, or online at www.trinitystarartscouncil.org.
