AHS Grad, now Professional Soprano Kathleen Buccleugh Performs Thursday


Kathleen Farrar Bucccleugh
Not too long ago, Kathleen Buccleugh (ancient Scottish spelling of "Buckley") was a student at Auburn High. Thursday, the prodigal singer returns with a couple of music degrees and a lot of opera, recital, sacred, and new-music experience under her belt. AU piano faculty Laurelie Gheesling will join her for A Little Lunch Music at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, and AU student and special guest Hunter Hayes will share a Mozart piano sonata. Here's a post I did for the museum's blog: A Little Lunch Music: Can Journalism for Truckers Inform Opera Singing.

Classical Guitarist Francois Fowler Plays Goodwin


Classical guitarist and composer Francois Fowler will perform Thursday night (3/6) at 7:30 PM. His bio boasts performances throughout North America, national and international awards, and faculty credit at Youngstown State University in Ohio. Here's a link to my post with video of him playing one of his own compositions.

AU Spring Break Lunch Music Added - Marc Karam Returns 3/13


We will do a concert during AU's Spring Break for A Little Lunch Music, and the Museum Café will be open. Performing on that date (3/13) will be vocalist and pianist Marc Karam. The weather forced a change in his February concert from 2/13 to 2/14, and we heard about several who, having not heard of the date change, came to a closed museum! So we're bringing him back. Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art website is here.

Classical Guitar, Jazz, Blues in the Coming Days


Weekly jazz continues at the museum from 4:45 to 6:00 PM. I'll be there March 6 with guitarist Dan Mackowski and bassist Jason DeBlanc. Previous blog post about this new endeavor here. At 5:00, the film Aquí y Allá (Here and There) begins in the museum's auditorium, so you'll have to choose. See the trailer and read the synopsis at the museum's film page. I think the scheduling overlaps will improve as time goes on.

Atlanta blues singer Francine Reed will perform for the Columbus Jazz Society's quarterly concert on March 11 at 7:00 PM EST. A good way to get a taste of her amazing voice through the years is through YouTube search results. She toured with Lyle Lovett back in the day, and has a long list of great jazz artists she has performed with. The CJS website has all the info.
