An award-winning local jazz vocalist and rising star, Rhiannon teams up with a great quartet for another unforgettable free Friday evening concert at the corner of Middle and Church Streets in Gloucester at 6:00 p.m.
Even before she graduated high school, Rockport native Rhiannon Hurst was winning awards at regional, national, and international competitions and earning some serious respect in the jazz world. Her talent has been described as, "integrating her innate ability and skills into an emerging musical personality." As a high school sophomore, Rhiannon won 2nd place in the Berklee International High School Jazz Singer's Showcase. She was one of four graduating seniors to receive the Excellence in Music Award from the Massachusetts Music Educators Association. Rhiannon was the recipient of a prestigious 2021 National YoungArts Foundation award in jazz voice for her caliber of artistic achievement.
Free-will donations will support the concert's featured local non-profit partner The Open Door - alleviating the impact of hunger in our community by connecting people to good food, advocating on behalf of those in need, and engaging others in the work of building food security. The evening's food vendor is the Lobster Roller offering their delicious lobster rolls and clam chowder.
