Georgia on My Mind: Celebrating the Music of Ray Charles

  • GPAC—Duncan Williams Performance Hall 1801 Exeter Road Germantown, TN 38138 (map)

The very first concert at GPAC, way back in 1994, was Ray Charles. He set the bar high. This season we are proud to present a show that reaches that high bar and delights fans of his music. This is not a “tribute” show but a collection of outstanding musicians luxuriating in the joy of Charles’ music. Award-winners Clint Holmes, Take 6, Nnenna Freelon and Kirk Whalum, along with a powerful band, will present the tapestry of blues, jazz, gospel and country that was Ray Charles’ gift to the world. In our minds, we can see him smile.
