Rockwood Manor is delighted to be hosting the The New River Valley Friends of the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra Road Show. We are the Sixth stop since they hit the road in September, how exciting!
The NRV Friends of the Roanoke Symphony is a volunteer arm of the RSO that supports performances of the Roanoke Symphony in our area and promotes music education programs in New River schools. This years show will be featuring jazz bassist Charlie Perkinson & Co. Mr. Perkinson is the weekday host of “Jazz Tonight” He has had a love for Jazz since high school where he played the upright bass. In his college years at Virginia Tech he played in the school dance band, The Southern Colonels.
After college, while overseas as a member of the United States Air Force he had the opprotunity one night to play the bass in the band backing up singer Rosemary Clooney while she was on a USO tour.
We look forward to visiting with our friends and having a relaxing evening listening to Charlie Perkinson & Co.
