BRO Revels! 2018 with Newberry & Verch

For BRO Revels! 2018, we put together a genre-crossing, multi-disciplinary holiday feast for the senses, with guests Joe Newberry and April Verch treating us to their Ozark/Quebec fiddle and step dance traditions, Rebecca O’Quinn choreographing a balletic dance to accompany Vivaldi’s Winter, and Megan McConnell and Rebecca O’Quinn joining the orchestra on vocals. Although the event was postponed to January 13 due to snow, it was a wonderful wintry time!

This event was sponsored by Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty, and was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
