Emerson Umbrella came into the WERS Studio on March 17th, Saint Paddy’s Day and rocked the sound waves. It being my ﬁrst Live Music Week on the Radio I didn’t know what to expect. I assumed it would be a pretty good sounding group. I was wrong. This group was amazing. The group sounded like a recording!
I was standing in the room while they where singing and I still couldn’t believe that they where singing live. They are a group ﬁlled with many talented performers. This being there 5th season, Emerson Umbrella is doing the classic musical, “Jesus Christ Superstar.” They opened with the powerful song “Heaven on Their Minds.” Ben Vereen would have been impressed with this performance.
After that they whole cast joined in singing “What’s the Buzz?/Strange Thing Mystifying.” They closed there performance with “Everything’s Alright.” Emerson Umbrella blew me and my fellow hosts away. They are a group of extremely talented and kind people. They came into the studio and were extremely friendly. They came to support the Radio station. They understand how important public radio is to the community and wanted to help in any way they could. If you are interested in seeing the Emerson Umbrella performance of “Jesus Christ Superstar” it is during March 29th through April 14th in the Emerson Umbrella Theater in Concard MA.
