CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On August 29th, the historic Fort Harrison will host 400 guests for Clearwater: A Century in Music. Narrated by Academy Award-nominated actress Anne Archer (Fatal Attraction, Patriot Games), the show features performances by jazz legend Chick Corea, Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation, Frost Nixon) and Dominica’s Michele Henderson.
The evening begins with a cocktail reception at 7pm, and the event will begin at 8pm with US Congressman David Jolly giving a special presentation to the City of Clearwater.
“The show itself is a history of Clearwater through the music that was a part of the area’s culture,” said Lisa Mansell, the show’s executive producer. “Clearwater has a deeper history in music than most people think.
“L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, appreciated a broad range of musical genres,” said Ms. Mansell, “and was himself an accomplished musician, composer and musical director. As the Church of Scientology has been a part of the Clearwater community for nearly 40 years, a concert like this seems an apt acknowledgement to the musical heritage of Clearwater.”
Genres featured in the show include Jazz, Broadway, 50’s rock and roll and songs from the “Star Spectaculars” that used to be produced regularly in Clearwater and are still remembered by many residents. The Fort Harrison itself was where the Rolling Stones stayed in Clearwater on their first American tour in 1965, and where the song “Satisfaction” had its roots.
There is no cost to attend the event, but RSVPs are required. For more information, please call (727) 467-6860. The Fort Harrison is located at 210 S. Fort Harrison Ave. in downtown Clearwater.
