November 2013 is a busy month for Braswell entertainers. Donald Braswell II and his daughter Aria both have events scheduled.
Radius Center is presenting Celebrate America, a testament to our musical and military heritage on Sunday, November 3. Donald is a special guest performer at this event honoring the military, law enforcement, fire fighters and their families. Special honorees are Apollo 16 Astronaut, Brigadier General Charles M. Duke and his wife.
The show features the combined choirs: First Baptist Church San Antonio (Aaron Hufty, Director), First Presbyterian Church San Antonio (Tom Dooling, Director), Madison Square Presbyterian Church (Paul Hughes, Director), and Travis Park United Methodist Church (Gary Mabry, Director).
At the culmination of the program the Ft Sam Houston color guard will lead everyone on a short walk to the Radius Center at 106 Auditorium Circle, where they will enjoy refreshments and an American jazz band jam session – celebrating the 100th anniversary of the historic Toltec Apartments. Carter House will be open to explore through the Toltec Historic Tours. Mark Collins will portray George Washington.
Who can pass up free food, free parking, and a free concert that is open to the public?
On Tuesday, November 12, the Patrick Heath Public Library’s Live at the Library is presenting a Donald Braswell concert featuring Broadway tunes from shows like Phantom of the Opera, Man from La Moncha, Oklahoma, and South Pacific. This brilliant one-man show is free to the public and is one not to miss.
Braswell leaves for Florida on November 23 for another of his clubhouse performances. He has many private shows booked at the beautiful theaters in the Fort Lauderdale and surrounding communities. This month he will be at the Huntington Pointe Clubhouse in Delray Beach. It is available only for community members and their guests.
As many people know, the entire Braswell family is multi-talented and his daughters have gorgeous voices. His daughter Aria is a Junior in Lee High School’s NESA program and is blooming into a wonderful performer. She has landed the lead in February’s Sweeney Todd at the School and she will be featured on his upcoming album.
This month she has the role of Tammy in the School’s presentation of Hairspray. All of Donald’s NESA students from his voice studio are also in the musical. Evening performances are at 7:30pm on November 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, and 16. Sunday matinees are at 2:30pm on November 10 and 17.
