FROM THE ARCHIVES: BLESSINGS: An Evening with René Marie on Thursday, May 14 at 5pm MDT / 7pm EST.
Originally performed live on October 20, 2018
Vocalist René Marie has cemented her reputation as a singer, composer, arranger, theatrical performer, and teacher in the span of 2 decades, 11 recordings, and countless stage productions. Guided by powerful life lessons and rooted in jazz traditions, she borrows various elements of folk, R&B, and even classical and country to create a captivating hybrid style.
Being no stranger to Charleston, René has blessed this city with her amazing voice and energy. Her past performances at Spoleto Festival USA are legendary. The CJO is pleased to take the stage with René Marie & Experiment In Truth (featuring pianist John Chin, bassist Elias Bailey, and drummer Quentin E. Baxter) for a night of original material from this two-time GRAMMY Award Nominee!
