Songs At The Center Tv Taping says
Beck Center for the Arts will host a national television taping featuring area singer-songwriters on Tuesday, June 20 at 7:30 p.m. The event is FREE and open to the public, limited to the first 100 attendees who register, and will be held at Beck Center’s Music & Dance Building located at 17801 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood.

The taping is the latest collaboration with Songs at the Center TV, the Ohio-based TV series that airs on more than 150 public stations from coast to coast. Among the featured songwriters are Emily Keener, of Wakeman, who was a Top-12 finisher on NBC’s The Voice, Thor Platter, of Cleveland, Christon Gray, of Columbus, Hey Mavis, Danika Holmes, Whetherman, and Jeb Hart.

Songs at the Center features singer-songwriters performing in an in-the-round format, and merges performances, interviews and interaction with the audience, which shares the stage with the artists. The series was created by Ohio-based singer-songwriter, Eric Gnezda - Songwriter and Speaker.

“We’re privileged to partner with the Beck Center in order to feature some of the great singer-songwriters from the Cleveland area,” Gnezda said. “Cleveland is rich in musical talent and we’re fortunate to be able to showcase some of it.”

In the first three seasons of the series, Songs at the Center has showcased approximately 80 singer-songwriters with strong Ohio ties, including Cleveland natives Grammy winner Marc Cohn, Nashville’s Anne E. DeChant, and J. Scott Franklin. In March the series and the Beck Center collaborated on a songwriting workshop that uncovered some of the talent for the program.

“Because the TV series presents the unique and intimate dynamic between songwriter and audience, we welcome everyone to come out and be part of our audience,” Gnezda said.

Songs at the Center is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Councill. The show also receives major support from OSUCCC-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute at The Ohio State University.
