Launch of My Music with Rhiannon Giddens on PBS April 6, 7:00 pm

“Ain’t no other way to kick this thing off but to shine a light on some of the most potent voices of our time while highlighting the true influence that people of color have had on the creation of American music.”
-Rhiannon Giddens

Join us for an intimate evening with singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, Grammy winner and Greensboro native Rhiannon Giddens for the official launch of her new PBS series, My Music With Rhiannon Giddens. This event will feature exclusive previews from the show, a Q&A with Rhiannon and the show’s producers, dinner and drinks.

The Crown at the Carolina, located on the third floor, started its life as the 1927 vaudeville theatre’s original sign shop, churning out iconic posters and ads for early touring shows and movies. After spending the decades that followed as a storage area, the space underwent its first phase of renovation to open to the public as The Crown in September 2013.

Now a high-tech, flexible performance space, The Crown is celebrated for its delicate acoustics, inviting ambiance, intimate setting, as well as its accessibility to the Triad’s performing arts community. Warm, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and huge lead-paned windows (original to the building) bring the room its natural, historic, up-cycled “cool” factor.
