Event Description
RUSSELL JOEL BROWN returns to Augusta, Georgia for his first concert here in eight years. Broadway and Beyond is a benefit concert for the Jessye Norman School of the Arts.  The concert will feature classical, spirituals, Broadway, and jazz. Special guests include Broadway performer and jazz singer LaShonda Reese and dancer Justin Reeves. They will be accompanied by Dr. Rosalyn Floyd (piano), David Heath (bass), Michael West (drums), and Joe Collier (trumpet). Students from the Jessye Norman School of the Arts will join Russell in one selection as well.

Local artists will be creating tribute works of art of Russell. These will be on display in the lobby of the Maxwell Theatre, and offered in a silent auction before the concert, and during the intermission. All proceeds will go to the Jessye Norman School of the Arts.

Augusta native, Russell Joel Brown, has toured the globe as a singer/ actor/ dancer in Broadway musicals. His early formal training began in Augusta with the Augusta Ballet School, Episcopal Day School and Good Shepherd Episcopal Church Youth Choir, St. Mary's Episcopal Church, Aquinas High School and St. Mary's on the Hill Catholic Church. These early influences laid the groundwork for later work with the Morehouse College Glee Club and Morehouse Quartet. In New York, Mr. Brown studied voice with the late Melvin Jordan for 12 years.

It was an early stint with the Augusta Players Youth Theater Wing that ignited Mr. Brown's passion for theater. After moving to New York, roles came in the First National Tours of "Smokey Joe's Cafe", "The Scarlet Pimpernel", and Disney's "The Lion King". International work has included the Japanese tour of "Smokey Joe's Cafe", a European tour of "Ain't Misbehavin'", and engagements in Taiwan and Mexico of Disney's "The Lion King". He currently tours as a bass and Mufasa understudy in the North American production of Disney's "The Lion King".
