Sax­o­phone con­cert on the square

The Covington News - - Newton at play -

When Angélla Christie plays the sax­o­phone, she plays not just to en­ter­tain audiences, but also to reach out and up.

At times rol­lick­ing and at times re­flec­tive, her mu­sic takes an in­stru­ment and a sound nor­mally as­so­ci­ated with sec­u­lar smooth jazz, into the con­tem­po­rary gos- pel arena. The re­sult­ing com­bi­na­tion is a nat­u­ral fit.

“ She is very, very tal­ented,” said Michelle John­son, the Arts As­so­ci­a­tion’s mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor. She de­scribed the Litho­nia na­tive and New Birth Mis­sion­ary Bap­tist church mem­ber as a very con­tem­po­rary artist. “ She has be­come in­ter­na­tion­ally rec­og­nized.”

This Fri­day at 7 p. m., Christie will be head­lin­ing on the Cov­ing­ton square as part of the New­ton County Arts As­so­ci­a­tion sea­son. Ad­mis­sion is free.
