CART 2013-2014 season underway


Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — Three standing ovations and an audience that would not stop clapping. That is the way to start CART’s 2013-2014 opening Performing Arts season. QuinTango’s sizzling music and captivate narrative gave everyone a new perspective on how to view the origin of the tango. The energy and contagious passion for their art form reached out and grabbed the audience bringing them to their feet. Only one word describes the moment — crazy!

I would like to thank our sponsors — Richlands Pharmacy Associates, Inc. and the Frank L. Smoot Charitable Trust and our contributors Lynda Stuart and Walmart. CART also received a Touring Assistance grant from the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. Our tech team was made up of: Doug Branton, Tim McClure, Donnie Perdue, Spotlight Rental, Eugene Robinson, Joe Adair, Bob Nassif, Martha Hurst, Frances Vance, Jan McClure, Linda Tanner, Joanna Cover, Cathy Harris, V&V Restaurant and the Richlands Middle School administration and custodial staff.

Mark your calendar for our next performance. Todd Greene, a multi-instrumentalist specializing in instruments from the Middle East, Central Asia, Far East and South America, Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m.. at Richlands Middle School Auditorium.

CART offers the best deal in town for the whole family. Please consider a membership today. You will not be disappointed.
