Salisbury — The Salisbury Symphony Orchestra is planning two major events with numerous musical guests this first month of the new year.
On January 14th, the Symphony will host an intimate night of food, drink and music with New York vocalist Ben Jones on stage at Catawba College’s Keppel Auditorium. “Behind the Curtain” kicks off with a 6pm cocktail hour with an open bar, followed by a plate dinner served by Buttercup Café.
Jones has been named by Broadway World as “one of the most incredible vocal instruments in the industry today” and has performed with symphonies in San Francisco, Seattle, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Oregon and Indianapolis. His performances span a wide variety of genres, from his Broadway musicals to his famous opera arias.
