Time Out says
Jazzical blues act MASTERS MARIE and Nashville Opera’s 2015 Mary Ragland Young Artists will perform together for the first time in a one-night-only event Saturday, March 21, 2015 at the new Natchez Hills Winery Tasting Room at Fontanel. The evening’s performance will include selections from the newly released MASTERS MARIE album “Live, Laugh, Love” combined with beloved standards, Broadway tunes and opera arias which will all tell stories of love through the varied musical genres.
MASTERS MARIE consists of singer-songwriter Krista Marie, virtuoso musician Tom Shinness, who plays an impressive six instruments on the recording, percussionist P.T. Houston, and Michael Morton on solo flute. The 2015 Nashville Opera Mary Ragland Young Artists are tenor Christopher Nelson, soprano Hanna Brammer, baritone Alex Soare, mezzo-soprano Christine Amon and pianist Cory Battey. The newest addition to Fontanel, the Natchez Hills Winery Tasting Room, will have fine wines and tasty bistro tapas available at 5:00 PM, with the show starting at 7:00 PM. No reservations are required, but space is limited. A suggested donation of $20 per person will benefit Nashville Opera’s education and outreach programs which is celebrating its 20th anniversary. This year, the Mary Ragland Young Artists will perform Jack and the Beanstalk for more than 24,000 children throughout Middle Tennessee.
