ARTS By George!
|When/Where||Saturday, Sep 28, 2019 5:00pm||Center for the Arts, Concert Hall, Fairfax Campus|
Join us for a benefit in support of student scholarships at George Mason University's College of Visual Performing Arts, Mason Community Arts Academy, Green Machine Ensembles, and the Great Performances at Mason season at the Center for the Arts.
The evening begins by showcasing the remarkable talents of Mason students amid an array of spectacular food and beverages, and culminates in the Concert Hall where Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award winner Audra McDonald makes her Center for the Arts debut! In this concert, McDonald performs her trademark mix of hits from Broadway and the Great American Songbook.
Blessed with a luminous soprano and an incomparable gift for dramatic truth-telling, for this one-night-only ARTS by George! benefit, McDonald will be joined onstage by Andy Einhorn on piano, Mark Vanderpoel on bass, and Gene Lewin on drums.
