In the second event of its 2011 Artist Showcase Series, the Norcross Arts Alliance (NAA) will present “A Classic Evening” on May 15th, from 5:30pm – 7:30p.m. Located in theNorcross Cultural Arts & Community Center (NCACC), the program offers a delightful evening of classical music showcasing local talent.
Each of the presenting artists offers an impressive resume. Jennifer Jordanis is an accomplished historical performance specialist; her husband Greg Jordanis a seasoned opera tenor. Early in their careers, John Cooper is already a distinguished violist while Craig Duke is an accomplished pianist who has performed in the Song Festival in Asolo, Italy. Each of the four performers will give insight to their music, their own path to success, and what it takes to perform at this level; they will also answer questions from the audience.
The NAA is proud to bring classical music to the Norcross area in a format that enhances the city’s already-rich cultural offering. Voted the “Best Arts & Cultural Scene” in Gwinnett in 2010, the City of Norcross enjoys a calendar of seasonal outdoor concerts, downtown music events, Lionheart Theater plays, and art exhibits at the Norcross Welcome Center and Kudzu Art Zone. With the Artist Showcase Series, the NAA’s goal is to showcase the creative outlets and energy that define Norcross by presenting a diversity of artistic expression including performing arts, fine arts, filmmaking and more. According to NAA Public Relations Director Arlene Beckles, “The Norcross Arts Alliance is proud of our local artists and have found that an interactive format provides a unique and exciting opportunity for both the artists and the audience to connect.”
