The Cleveland-Bradley Concert Association announces its first concert of the season — “American Spirit” — will be Sept. 27 at Conn Center at 7 p.m.

On this the 10-year anniversary of the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, Matt Davenport Productions pays tribute to America and what makes her the great country she is. Join the multitalented cast of 10 singers and dancers on a high-energy, powerful journey that defines the true spirit of America.

As seen through the eyes of the well-meaning, but slightly befuddled Mayor of your Hometown, U.S.A. it is a 90-minute song, dance and storytelling journey through parade routes and battlefields, town halls and concert halls. Witness moments of the American Revolution mixed with the Industrial Revolution. Hear Prohibition jazz grow out of Civil War spirituals.

And enjoy America’s heroes on the battlefield and the ball field, rubbing elbows with entertainers and politicians alike. Some local talent will be joining the Matt Davenport singers and dancers for a portion of the show.

Tickets to the concert are by season membership, which admits you to the above show and three others this season. Adult memberships are $50 and a membership for a family of four is $110.

The other concerts are Nov. 17 featuring the American Tenors. These three gentlemen have delighted audiences all across America with their powerful voices. They sing songs from the “American Songbook,” as well as some of the most familiar classical numbers.

On Jan. 12, 2012, the concert association is offering something different. Welcome the “Water Coolers,” a laugh-out-loud evening of award-winning song and comedy. It is about life and work and features five outstanding New York City singers and comics.

The final concert of the season, on April 30, is the “Shangri-La Acrobats.” This company flawlessly interprets the precision and grace of an art form honed by centuries of training and discipline of Chinese Acrobats.

For more information or to get a brochure, call 473-1114 or 476-6979; or you may pick up a brochure at the new location of the Red Ribbon at 223 Inman St., across from the Museum Center at Five Points.
