July 12 - Salon at Musicoal!

On Sunday, July 12, at 7 pm, the Meymandi Theater at the Murphey School, 224 Polk Street, in Raleigh, NC will host a Salon of music, dance and theater.

The evening will feature Fleur de Lisa, a group of four women singers who write and perform all original music, blending elements of art, jazz, classical and folk. At turns, playful, moving, and inspiring, Fleur de Lisa songs feature complex harmonies and rhythms, with lyrics based on poetry from Japan and the United States, including Piedmont Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Greene. For the July 12 show Fleur de Lisa will premiere a song based on the work of NC Poet Laureate Kathryn Stripling Byers. Fleur de Lisa will also unveil a longer suite of songs based on poems by Roberta Beary.

Dance solos will be presented by Carol Finley, Artistic Director of Meredith Dance Theater, whose piece "Prelude to the Breakup" is the opening section to a suite she will perform in concert next Fall. Senior Dance Major Matney Murad will dance "Confession from the Bride Room."

Rounding out the evening, Director Johannah Maynard, BFA Tisch School for the Arts, will lead some of Raleigh's finest actors and actresses in performing favorite monologues.

The July 12 show is part of the Musicoal Series presented by Burning Coal Theater. Tickets are available only at the door, and cost $10, $5 for students and Seniors.

Hopefully someone will. A decent 3G cellphone should be able to record the performance.
