It’s that time of year again, “Local Vocal” takes place this Thursday at 6:30 pm at our Foster St office! The night is part of Durham Central Park’s annual, “Meals from the Market” fundraiser. We will enjoy the talents of Duke’s Rhythm and Blue, Durham Academy’s XIV Hours, NC State’s Wolfgang, Chapel Hill High’s Lucky 13, and the Riverside Rapids. The office is a renovated car garage, turned art gallery, turned real estate office, which means the acoustics and layout are perfect for these talented, acapella groups.
Each year, the groups deliver new, high-energy mash-ups of classic jams and today’s newest hits. Personally, I’m hoping for some Adele this year. Regardless of song choice, quality hand-clapping, foot-tapping, and even some dancing is guaranteed. Don’t worry if all that movement makes you work up an appetite, our neighbors Piedmont and Rise will provide a delicious tapas-style selection of edibles.
Visit the Durham Central Park website to purchase your tickets (https://durhamcentralpark.org/events/meals-from-the-market/) before they are completely sold out! The businesses of 401 Foster Street look forward to hosting you on Thursday!
