Whatever you do reserve January 20 or 21
on your calendarfor a night in Rome, Georgia.
Rome's Own Musical Ensemble and the
Rome Area Council for the Arts will present

A Musical by Frank Wildhorn
under the direction of Brian Sikes and conducted by Sam Baltzer

This may be the most outstanding group of musicians with whom I have ever performed. Some of these artists will bring tears to your eyes! We are doing the show with minimal staging. It might be considered more concert than musical play. The songs are moving, rousing, agonizing, plaintive, and the readings are authentic, thought-provoking and all that the songs are, as well. Dr. Clementine Slack performs the famous Sojourner Truth monologue, Ain't I a Woman; Justin McGough will break your heart as a dying Union Soldier singing Tell My Father; Dan Biggers will perform several Lincoln monologues; Dan Bishop, Detrick Redding, Jason Fordham, Marvin Williams, Jason Whitfield, Janeal Johnson, Angela Flanagan, Shawn McDougal, Jim Powell, Gussie Lee Knox and the Rome Gospel Choir led by Priscilla Jones, and lots more...

All I can say is "Wow!"
I am thrilled to sing with these folks and to add my little solo: Brother, My Brother.
If you miss this show, you'll really miss something really good.
