Joe Gransden to Headline Johnny Mercer Celebration at Rialto

On Friday, February 26th, Georgia State University’s Rialto Center for the Arts continues an annual tradition begun in 1991 when it stages the 2016 Johnny Mercer Celebration.

This year, Atlanta-based jazz trumpeter and vocalist Joe Gransden, a Georgia State alumnus, will headline the tribute; it will be his third appearance at the Mercer Celebration. Also performing will be native Atlantan Kathleen Bertrand, a jazz vocalist widely acknowledged for her three octave range, and beloved singer and musical theater actress Marilyn Maye. All three will be accompanied by the GSU Jazz Band to perform a selection of Mercer’s Academy Award-nominated hits.

Tickets, starting at $34, are available at the Rialto Center’s box office, by calling 404-413-9849, or through rialto.gsu.edu.
