Article On Upcoming Johnny Mercer Tribute Concert
The Atlanta Journal Constitution featured an article about our upcoming Johnny Mercer Tribute Concert, including an interview with graduate student Jason Collier. Jason has a graduate assistantship project through an endowment from The Johnny Mercer Foundation. He has created new arrangements and compositions from unpublished songs housed in the Johnny Mercer Papers in the Georgia State University Special Collections and Archives. The show will feature the unpublished songs with Joe Gransden, Francine Reed, and the Georgia State University Jazz Band under Vernick’s direction. The Johnny Mercer Tribute Concert will be held on February 11, 2018 at 3:00 pm at the Rialto Center for the Arts in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Tickets can be purchased here.
