[Richard C. Alston]

The performances of pianist Richard C. Alston are frequently the subject of AfriClassical posts. Today Richard sends us this news:
“Good Morning My Family and Friends, I have accepted the invitation to portray the pianist 'Jasbo Brown' in the New Jersey State Opera production of Gershwin's 'Porgy and Bess.' I made my debut as 'Jasbo Brown' in the Metropolitan Opera House production. I am looking forward to appearing with the New Jersey State Opera in this landmark production at the historic Symphony Hall.
Richard 'Jasbo Brown' Alston”
