“NEIGHBOUR, NEIGHBOUR” – MAVIS JOHN UP CLOSE & PERSONAL AT TTW
April 9, 2007
This week, TTW’s Up Close & Personal Concert Series takes a break to observe the Easter Holiday. However, the series returns with a special two-night engagement on Friday, 20th and Saturday 21st April , 2007 with a performance by the ever-popular, Mavis John.
Singing a record-breaking 275 songs in over 58 performances in 2003, Mavis John continues to thrill audiences at home and abroad and has also become one of the most sought after artistes in Trinidad and Tobago. That year, she also took her show on the road with performances in New York, Barbados, St. Kitts, St. Vincent and Washington.
As a culturally conscious and passionate patriot of Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean, Mavis single-handedly revived our national song and national spirit with her rendition of “God Bless Our Nation”. Her CD, “Mavis Sings”, a collection of wonderful classics continues to be very popular and remains a steady success on the commercial circuit. She is well known for her songs, “Jazz in The Callaloo”, “The Time Is Now” and “You are What Love Is”.
Mavis continues this feast of popular songs and performances with her first full-length concert since 2004. Appropriately titled Neighbour, Neighbour, Mavis will perform literally a stone’s throw from her own yard at TTW’s Playwright’s theatre. She will be joined onstage with pianist Ming, and background vocals by Karla Gonzales and Corinne Gray.
The newly refurbished and air-conditioned Playwrights’ Theatre is located at the corner of Jerningham Avenue and Norfolk Street, Belmont. Seating at the Playwrights’ Theatre is extremely limited, so book your tickets early. Security will be provided for cars parked on the street. The After Carnival schedule can be found online at www.ttw.org.tt/nowplaying.html. For further information or to book tickets, please call 624-8502 or 627-8521.
