King­dom County An­nounces 2013-14 Per­for­mance Se­ries

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

King­dom County Pro­duc­tions has an­nounced its line-up for its 2013-14 per­for­mance se­ries. The artists sched­uled rep­re­sent, among them, eleven Grammy awards, more than twenty-five Grammy nom­i­na­tions, an Emmy, and two Tony Awards. Also in­cluded: two world-class vo­cal ensem­bles from Eng­land, a ballet troupe from Moscow, and worl­dac­claimed drum­mers from Ja­pan.

KCP’s fifth per­for­mance sea­son will open with two-time GRAM­MY­WIN­NING JAZZ SINGER CASSANDRA WIL­SON at 7pm, Sun­day, Septem­ber 22nd, Fuller Hall, St. Johns­bury Acad­emy. Time Mag­a­zine calls Wil­son “Amer­ica’s best singer” for her ex­tra­or­di­nary abil­ity to phrase new ma­te­rial or give fresh in­ter­pre­ta­tion to fa­mil­iar songs by com­posers in­clud­ing Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Robert John­son, and Hank Wil­liams. Noted for her dis­tinc­tive and throaty con­tralto – and her re­mark­able abil­ity to stretch and bend pitches, elon­gate syl­la­bles, and ma­nip­u­late tone and tim­bre from dusky to hol­low. Critic Gary Gid­dens de­scribes her as a singer “who has ex­panded the field” of vo­cal per­for­mance. This will be Cassandra Wil­son’s ex­clu­sive north­ern New Eng­land con­cert.
