Mercury Rising: The Freddie Mercury Experience
Friday November 2, 10:00 PM
Alder Stage - General Admission
Freddie Mercury is arguably one of the most talented vocalists of the last century. Courtney Freed’s one-woman tribute concert "Mercury Rising," highlights his incredible range and dynamic stage presence through vocal driven jazz arrangements. Freed also brings to light the life experiences that shaped his talent and ultimately led to his untimely AIDS related death in 1991. Freed's concert pays magical homage to Mercury through the art of cabaret storytelling and a fresh musical take on his most beloved songs. Musical arrangements by Reece Marshburn and the band includes David Saffert on keys, Josh Gilbert on reeds, Bernardo Gomez on bass and Tom Goicochea on drums.
