Duo, choir to be featured at Pickin' in the Square

Written by 

Guitar duo Jazz Mountain and the male choir Men Macon Music will perform at a double-bill concert starting at 4 p.m. Sept. 16 on Franklin’s Town Square Gazebo on the corner of Main and Iotla streets.

Guitarists Paul Savaiko and Ray Olson perform together as Jazz Mountain, playing material from The Great American Songbook through varied jazz mediums including swing, ballads, bossas and blues, with some contemporary and original tunes added to the mix.

The award-winning Men Macon Music all-male chorus, directed by Tom Fisher, boasts more than two dozen voices and renders selections representing a broad spectrum of music, from show tunes to Americana to humorous numbers.

Attendees should bring a lawn chair. This event is sponsored by the Arts Council of Macon County, with support from the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
