Meg McLeod and Rachel Price, along with Public Interest Projects and the producers of the newly released album, Asheville Symphony Sessions invite you to enjoy an evening of inspiration. Come see and hear the story of Julian Price and Asheville’s renaissance as told by the dreamers who lived it, with live performances of original songs from the leaders of Asheville’s legendary local music scene.
Asheville owes its success to a collaboration of business owners, philanthropists, and public officials who dared to dream to reinvent downtown into a thriving center for the cultivation of community. The biggest dreamer of them all was Julian Price.
On May 26th 2016, philanthropist, Julian Price will be honored for his achievements by a new collaborative effort from Asheville’s creative professionals. The world premiere of the documentary, Julian Price, will reveal his incredibly diverse contribution to the city. The Orange Peel, Malaprops, Salsas, Mountain Xpress, Self Help Credit Union, The Laughing Seed, the Fine Arts Theatre, and many more businesses have benefited from his support. He revived abandoned buildings and filled them with thriving businesses to make downtown livable again.
“This album serves as a soundtrack for the city,” says ASO Executive Director, David Whitehill. Thanks to the thoughtfulness of Executive Producer, Jessica Tomasin and album producer Michael Selverne, this album will also be the soundtrack for Julian’s story. “I believe that we have created an incredibly musical record that reflects the spirit and the soul of our community,” says Selverne. “This evening will be a reflection of Julian’s ideals and efforts,” says director Erin Derham. “It is a celebration of collaboration and gratitude designed to inspire this unique community to nurture its authenticity.”
