The Tonto Community Concert Association will wrap up its performance season with Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, May 10 at the Payson High School auditorium.
Corky Siegel has earned an international reputation as one of the world’s great blues harmonica masters. He is a composer, blues pianist, and singer/songwriter. Siegel is pioneering a new musical genre, coined Chamber Blues, an innovative sound that blends sparkling classical music with melodic and emotional blues in an intimate setting. Under Siegel’s direction, the West End String Quartet and percussionist, Frank Donaldson, complete the Chamber Blues Band. Their concerts are remarkable, hot, joyous, outrageously fun and sweep both young and old onto the blissful edge between Beethoven and B.B. King.
The Tonto Community Concert Association is a nonprofit organization that has been bringing high quality concerts to Arizona Rim Country at an affordable price for 30 years. The all-volunteer group also supports other performing arts activities in the region. The concerts feature artists of national and international acclaim.
