Mary Chapin Carpenter to Make Columbus Orchestral Debut, 9/21
With 13 albums and more than 13 million records sold, Mary Chapin Carpenter has developed a remarkably loyal and devoted international fan base. She has won five Grammy Awards, two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards, and in 2012, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Her songs speak to the most personal and universal of life's details. Her debut orchestral album, Songs from the Movie, arranged and conducted by Vince Mendoza, reprises ten of Carpenter's songs in Mendoza's distinctively beautiful and cinematic arrangements including "Come On Come On," "On and On It Goes," "I Am a Town," and "Goodnight, America."
