The Art of Cool Project, which presents monthly concerts in LabourLove Gallery in Golden Belt, was the brainchild of Cicely Mitchell and trumpeter Al Strong. The After Hours Concert Series, 3rd Fridays, has done much to raise awareness about the vibrant Durham jazz scene.
Mitchell has done an amazing job networking, forming partnerships with the local arts community. Tonight the Art of Cool Project celebrates turning one with a benefit concert at the Cotton Room, at #807 East Main Street. There will be a press conference beforehand where next year's performers will be announced.
The concert will feature Orquesta GarDel and Soul Understated.
The selection committee included some of Durham’s most famous musicians and some of our legion of arts and culture innovators.
Don't miss it. The Clarion Content team will be there in force.
