Duke Performances: Partly Cloudy

September 24, 2012

Gospel quartet The Mighty Clouds of Joy will light up the Hayti Heritage Center for two shows in November, one of the highlights of Duke Performances’ 2012-13 season. Beyond featuring an always-eclectic mix of music, dance, and spoken word, the performance series puts artists in appropriately evocative venues. This year’s lineup features indie rock at Motorco Music Hall, smoky jazz at the Casbah nightclub, and a choral performance at Duke Chapel. Watch for gypsy brass band Fanfare Ciocarlia; neo-soul singer-songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello; off-kilter comic and vocal percussionist Reggie Watts; tap dancer Savion Glover; cabaret diva Meow Meow; and the eighty-member Chinese National Symphony Orchestra.
