April 24 show at WCU ‘can’t come fast enough’ for alumna Jeanne Jolly
Jolly said she is excited to be returning to WCU for the Friends of the Arts show. “April 24 can’t come fast enough,” she said. “I’m counting the days and can’t wait to see the Catamount Singers and Electric Soul do their thing.” Frazier and his School of Music faculty colleague Jon Henson are directing the show, a celebration of chart-topping pop music, along with some standards by artist such as Aretha Franklin and Lionel Richie. Jolly and the student vocalists and musicians also will perform some of her original songs, including her composition “Round and Round Again” from her “Angels” album. “I’ve always wanted to hear a choir of angels in the background, and Dr. Frazier wrote an arrangement for the band and singers to play behind me. That’s a dream come true,” Jolly said.
Tickets for “All Night Long” are $15 for adults, $10 for WCU faculty and staff, and $5 for students. Tickets are available by calling the Bardo Arts Center box office at 828-227-2479 or by visiting the website bardoartscenter.wcu.edu.
